What a time to be alive! Thought it would be interesting to have this thread available for the ladies.

Taking our toddler to the zoo soon. At the (very well funded) library in our area today I was searching for books and a dvds to get my child excited about the trip. I found a few good books easily. They have a HUGE kids dvd library, 6 massive bookcases. Not one single educational video about animals or the zoo. Every single piece of garbage kids movie and show, every Disney movie, and not one single educational video on the zoo?! One librarian was so shocked she combed through the entire section.

I don't really think it's a conspiracy, just an observation on the dumbing down of our culture.

What strange observations have you made lately?

I find it alarming that deafness has become so focused on in the entertainment industry at this time. For one, a movie about a deaf man won an academy award which I could care less about but interesting to observe. Every other new netflix show and movie has a deaf character in it. Even some shows and movies on network TV and hollywood. I see 'news stories' about deaf children overcoming obstacles pop up on my facebook feed. And the silly deaf interpreters that they televise at political events when you could just do closed captioning. While I do find it a good thing to be inclusive towards the deaf and that the stories of children overcoming challenges with deafness inspiring, it strikes me as odd to all of a sudden be constantly exposed to that specific demographic via entertainment. It reminds me of the media complex trying to normalize heart conditions after the jab. Even netflix movies and shows work that one into the mix. It makes me think that they are trying to normalize a bunch of children going deaf because there will be some health crisis they created later on that causes deafness. Recently, even an acquaintence of mine's poor young son went deaf after contracting bacterial meningitis after being vaxxed for it, thankfully otherwise will be ok. Like what are they planning for us? I know that before the onset of the pandemic TV shows and movies were already normalizing fear and quarantine due to unknown viruses. What are they planning?? What is coming down the pipeline?? Anyone else notice this??

Not really "weird," but I work at a chain restaurant; the managers were saying that the company has been operating at a loss since 2020 (between having to pay people to stay home, loss of revenue from lockdowns and semi-lockdowns, takeout only periods etc.) so they're trying to nickel and dime where they can. They got rid of some popular seafood options because it just too expensive (and we ran out every Sunday, which caused people to get upset), and the delivery truck brought us baked beans as a "replacement." Which are tasty, but it felt like a zeitgeisty sort of thing (hope you like your beans PROLE)

Otherwise my life is pretty good right now, nothing particularly weird.

The main thing that's jumped out at me is how over the top and in everybody's faces - normalized - the Luciferian agenda is becoming. vigilantcitizen.com is a great resource calling all this out. The recent article about emerging musician Charli XCX is pretty crazy. She has numerous Instagram posts addressed to new artists, advising them to sell their souls for money and fame, suffer in silence, it only gets worse, with very creepy accompanying imagery. She uses the drop of blood emoji all over her posts. Ick.

My husband and I never went out a lot (by American millennial standards in my opinion) for various reasons. Now especially we avoid going out, maybe twice a month for a 'treat'. It's almost always a guaranteed disappointment. Subpar if not outright terrible food, questionable cleanliness, appalling service, zogg oil galore. Never worth the money. Finding decent places is still possible, but since convid is like finding a needle in a Haystack. I think the restaurant industry is collapsing big time.

I didn't take note before, but now that you mention it... I'm feeling a little paranoid about it.

Weird things I've noticed:

- Food product brand names becoming increasingly vulgar/crude. Makes me feel like I'm living in that movie Idiocracy. Not there yet, but I see it heading that way.

- Horrible/dangerous driving. It's either extremely slow reaction times (usually people driving alone with a face diaper on), or incredibly reckless illegal maneuvers (using the turning lane to cut everyone off, driving on the wrong side against traffic, driving on sidewalk, running solid red lights). Witnessed a police chase too.

- Blatant satanic imagery on clothing worn by young people, including children. Pentagrams, that goat demon thing, ouija boards, that kind of thing. I guess this has been a thing for the "edgy, weird" crowd since I was a teen but now it seems completely mainstream.

- Youtube got rid of the option to change speed of watching videos on the device I use the most to watch videos on the tv. Now I feel like every video I watch is a waste of my time, knowing it could have been watched in half the time. Still works on my tablet at least.

I had noticed the deaf interpreters on everything. I could be wrong, but I thought the interpreters were for the people that are watching the event in person, since the subtitles are only possible for broadcasts.

On a personal note, my hearing is terrible, and I require subtitles to watch anything at a reasonable volume. I find it difficult to communicate with someone when I can't see their lips move (I don't know how to officially read lips or anything, mostly noticed this when people were all masked up). Not vaxxed. If I had to throw out a theory I would say that there's some kind of imperceptible sound in the background that has been slowly ruining our hearing, and "they" may be preparing us for the outcome of hearing loss.

Coincidentally I had my hearing tested today for the first time: age-related hearing loss, especially of higher-pitched sounds, as expected. But I was astonished to see everyone at the clinic wearing masks, both patients and staff. I was offered a mask but merely said "I don't wear a mask," and the receptionist said "Oh,I'll enter that in your record, then." The audiologist seemed to agree with me when I commented that, of all health care places, they should have an exemption from mask-wearing, as so many slightly deaf people rely to some extent on lip-reading, even if without being aware that they are doing so. Here in Melbourne, Australia, bookings have been far heavier than pre-Covid, presumably because the prolonged mask-wearing requirements have made more people aware that they don't hear well. Yet nowhere is tuition in lip-reading available. I suppose that's because politicians don't want anyone to know what they say to each other sotto voce.

Anyone else notice that nothing works anymore?? Things are just constantly out of order.. Sometimes random things like escalators or the metro had to discontinue 60% of their trains due to disrepair. Maybe its more of a city thing.
Everyone is short-staffed, so a lot of things are taking longer to get done.

The first things that come to my mind are vax injuries and sound cannons used to disperse large crowds (possibly when there are food riots.)

Yes, like all the time and in news stories too. I am reminded of an observation that Roosh made a while back: society is going backwards, not making progress and unable to maintain the advancements that were made. Things will continue to break down.

There's some back-and-forth with deaf culture because deafness was pretty common in the late 19th/early 20th century, there were deaf schools, camps, etc (Lon Chaney Sr. was raised by two deaf parents and was annoyed when sound was added to movies because it was entertainment deaf people could enjoy), which probably had to do with people crowding into cities and the rise of dormant diseases. Allegedly the rubella vaccine dropped the childhood deafness rate down to where deaf advocates called it "genocide," (I think this was in the 70s but I can't find the source, I'm not so sold on this idea anymore) and stuff like cochlear implants are controversial because they don't work like natural hearing.

I've had doctors tell me in the past that millenials have more hearing loss because of constant ear bud/headphone use, too, so that could be a factor idk

I've been a fan of Judas Priest for years, leaning more towards the earlier 70s material as that is better than the later albums which are much more commercialised and inane in content (although some of the 80s song are good). They do have great guitar work and I love Halfords singing. One can't really dispute that the best of his singing is some of the best in hard rock / heavy metal, his personal life notwithstanding. I've not listened them in months however.

One thing I notice with the announcement of his new book is the use of religious and specifically Christian imagery and concepts, but it's in an appropriated manner. Why does he feel the need to do this? I can't help but notice the fascination that he and to be honest music subcultures like metal and goth evidently have. It was the same with his autobiography, titled "Confess" and with him pictured in a praying hand position on the promotional images, and then this new book "Biblical" looks to be more of the same with it's promotional marketing appropriating (one might say inverting) Christian iconography and ideas. It is also evident in several Judas Priest songs, so this is not new territory.

Many think of Judas Priest as not particularly satanic, at least in comparison to later bands (such as the black metal genre) which are much more overtly extreme. However, in my view Judas Priest were just more subtle about it, and their music opened the door for more extreme developments.

The album Stained Class (1978) is arguably their best album, but it is undoubtedly very dark and nihilistic. And that quality, as well as the calibre of musicality is precisely why it's revered. It has a very appealing dark aesthetic, which is glamorous if you are drawn to such things. It is also infamous due to the suicide court case (The documentary Dream Decievers catalogues this well, fairly balanced, however the impression it makes is that the parents, in particular the born again Christian mother are fools, although they don't help themselves tbh). Like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, particularly in the 70s, were concerned with the darkness of humanity but, unlike Black Sabbath, they never acknowledge the existence of God. I honestly cannot think of a song in which they do, and I have all of their classic discography. Whereas Sabbath, despite their dark imagery, at least have songs like War Pigs, After Forever, Lord of This World and the song Black Sabbath itself which is a warning about evil. Judas Priest on the other hand just deals with darkness in a mostly nihilistic way, extorting the dionysian ecstasy of chaos. They do sometimes have songs which tell of a saviour but it's in very fantastical sci-fi terms. Exciter and Painkiller (which is essentially just an updated version of Exciter) are the prime examples here, and I think many would look at the superficial allusions to a "savior" and Apocalypse and think it just a sci-fi take on Christian eschatology. However, on closer reading in my opinion it is evident that this is surface level only, and in fact subtly satanic. Maybe not even that tbh because the Painkiller cover literally has the fallen angel from the cover of their second album, Sad Wings of Destiny, which depicts Lucifer in hell. And the song lyrics of Painkiller are describing him. So... yeah.

All of the above makes one side eye them when they use Christian allusions, especially as Halford claims to be Christian. Now, he is clearly a troubled soul, that is very evident if you know anything about him, so I can only pray that he resolves these troubles and truly follows Christ if he has an inclination to do so.

A couple weeks ago I wrote in my journal that the general public just doesn’t look well to me.

(I can be wrong because I’ve been slightly sheltered as a SAHM the past 1.5 years so maybe I’m just not around the general public much. I see other moms at baby groups and for the most part they all seem healthy. Most of my family members and friends do, too.)

So, my husband and I had to run some errands. We went to an electronic store, a phone store, a grocery store and then a mini mall parking lot. Pretty much everyone I saw looked overweight or underweight, tired, BAD POSTURE, weak, drooping behinds or sunburnt. Pretty much everyone I saw that afternoon looked unwell.

Since then, I’ve just been noticing more sickly looking people than usual. There were always the sick and tired but now it seems like a larger percentage look sick compared to healthy. (I’ve always been a big “people watcher” and there is definitely something going on.)

I don’t know if this is the right thread for this but I do not understand how every business is understaffed. The extra rona money was stopped a while ago. How are these people surviving and not working. I mean everywhere. Several states I’ve been though in the past year all had many businesses extremely understaffed or have shortened hours of operation. Explain this to me. Are these people afraid of rona and millionaires?

Based on my experiences trying to obtain and retain quality staff, I have reached the conclusion that a sizable proportion of folk have "dropped out". That and also being content with a reset toward more modest expectations in life moving forward.

The rationale being that as they would be unlikely to earn a $200k+ /year income, things like home ownership, going on trips away or having significant investments in hobbies, are unobtainable. With travel restrictions, the instagram travel blogger influencer lifestyle has evaporated. So in their opinion there is no utility in having relatively modest ambitions as a goal.

Even with the transition to pre 2020 levels of welfare payments, the extra wages gained from working a full time minimum wage job is hardly an incentive for people to work at all, or increase their working hours from part time.

Where I live (Australia), someone can work 10 hours per week and receive the full unemployment/study benefit and clear $500/week between their wages and the benefits. While it isn't the life of luxury, you can live off of it if you have a cheap lifestyle.

Basically a complete inverse of the "pull yourself up by your bootstraps and you'll get there eventually" boomer meme.

I can see your explanation making sense for “some” of the population, but since we are talking about humans, that many are ok with just being able to have cup of noodles everyday and not doing anything? I can’t imagine these people don’t want to go out and do something. Not necessarily degenerate like getting drunk at clubs but just going to a museum or show or something. All of that is expensive these days. Edit do these people not families to take care of? Even pets can be expensive.

One thing that I have noticed is more corporations using/promoting astrology. Needed to use my monthly Audible credit, the featured selection each time I opened the app was “Self care from the Stars” which I glanced at and thought at first was about hot takes from celebrities about self care which imho would be bad enough. Nope, astrology. McDonalds recently had a promotion where you could enter to win a tarot reading with some Instagram astrologer/psychic. Opened up App Store and Astrology apps being promoted. I feel sad that these dangerous things are being so casually promoted to people.
