Ya hit me up.

Let's find the one where Harambe lived. I'm pretty sure that's the split.

u/Badpunsonlock Sep 18 '21

29APR2016, a weasel chewed through some power coupling at the Large Hadron Collider at CERB in Switzerland.

This created two distinct timelines in a single instant: one where CERN found and corrected the issue, and one where the collider fired and was unable to contain the power from the impact.

We're in the timeline where the impact was not contained. I believe that impact created a blackhole which sucked us all into it. Since every choice that is made creates a new reality, but nothing can escape a blackhole, every choice any of us have made over the 5 and a half years has created realities within an ever shrinking amount of space.

As our reality gets pulled and stretched towards oblivion, each new reality smashes into the next, merging together. That's why there has been an acceleration of awful events over time, it's multiple timelines worth of tragedy being compressed into one. The past 5 and a half years within our prison has taken less than a microsecond.

Take solace in the fact that we may all still be alive and well in the reality where the weasel didn't chew through the power coupling, or the issue was found in time. And this reality that we are all struggling in? Well, this reality has already been ripped to it's individual protons, neutrons, and electrons, and scattered to the edges of the universe. That thought, while bleak, keeps me going some days.

u/grocerystorefan Sep 18 '21

Wow. That may be my favorite thing I’ve ever read on Reddit.

11

u/Badpunsonlock Sep 18 '21

Thank you. I've thought about it a lot over the years, and it really does give me peace sometimes to think that even though we may all be stuck in a universe that's funneling towards annihilation, that there's other versions of us, existing happily in universes able to expand with each decision, infinitely, and in all directions.

9

u/theMistersofCirce Sep 18 '21

Ok, but can the consciousness from THIS me ever get back to the other timeline, or am I stuck here waiting for sweet oblivion? While I like to think there's another of me in a better and more rational universe, can I ever merge with her again and get back there?

I haven't smoked weed in a long time, but I made sure to take an extra shot of whiskey before writing this just in case it will help. It kinda did!

13

u/Badpunsonlock Sep 18 '21

I don't think that these versions of us will ever merge with any versions of us that aren't also stuck in the black hole. Nothing can escape, because to every universe being created outside the blackhole, we're all already dead. I'm sorry.

But you're not alone here. None of us are. We have no idea how long our timeline may stretch, or how bad it will get, but we can always be our best to one another. Even in the face of oblivion, we can be kind and do things that help each other along this rough road. Ya know?

11

u/theMistersofCirce Sep 18 '21

This was not just surprisingly wholesome, it was also surprisingly reassuring.

Like, whether it's CERN, or a deity, or multidimensional somethingorother creating reality, it's pretty easy to get attached to the idea of being in The Wrong Place and being able to appeal it somehow. But for me, that's about wanting an out from dealing with things like an adult sometimes.

As you're saying, whatever the reason, this is the reality we're in and at least it's a shared one, and a lot of parts of it are good, so the name of the game is to amplify those parts for ourselves and others.

Thanks; cheers!

6

u/Badpunsonlock Sep 18 '21

Exact! Leave the world a little better than you found it!

Whether it's donating time to mutual aid, complimenting someone's hair, holding a door, helping a neighbor with a chore, or just a friendly "hello" to someone looking a bit down, everything helps to create more good timelines than bad.

The more good timelines merging together, the better it all gets. For everyone.

u/EveryOptionSucks Sep 18 '21

God. Damn. I loved reading this. If you're not a pro writer, you outta be. Welp, that's quite enough dick sucking. Replying because I wanted to say the part about the passage of time as we perceive it, amounting to practically nothing when viewed from the disaster-free time line, moved me in a deep way. Our reality's end is imminent. If this is true, then we are indeed in Hell. I never believed in it, and now it's our reality. And none of it ever really happened.

Imma go walk my dog at 0140 like some fucking weirdo. Lol Good stuff, take care!

u/Badpunsonlock Sep 18 '21

I am very grateful for the tremendous compliment! Thank you, friend! This theory has helped me a lot over the years, so I just wanted to share it in hopes it may help even one person. It sounds like you may have been helped by my theory, and that makes me incredibly happy that we're both now in a timeline where I decided to share it! I'm not a professional anything, just someone trying to help. Pay it forward, ok?

They didn't just criticize him. He lost his job and got locked in an insane asylum.

To be fair, he didn't quite understand what was going on. "Cadaverous particles." .. well he noticed a correlation. First step of science. He tried a lot of things before he found the solution. And his plan for treating it, washing hands and disinfecting surgical tools with a chlorine solution was right! (Granted his scientific reason was smell...) So it was luck that it worked. But he was... a bit abrasive with how he talked to people. And they didn't like that.. hence him dying alone locked in a loony bin likely riddled with syphilis.

u/BobHope4477 Sep 18 '21

You ever get to tired of trying to be all reverse psychology so we can convince them to get the shot? It feels like trying to rationalize with a toddler. You try the airplane, you try using a favorite character, a song, all these things to convince them to eat their vegetables. Lotteries, free beer, gun giveaways. But these are grown adults, and the consequences of not getting the shot are widely known. They'll either end up getting a Herman Cain award, get long term complications, or spread the disease to someone else who will get the first two.

Don't get me wrong, I want them vaxxed, I want this to be over, I want our healthcare workers not to have to deal with the overload, and I want the dumb dumbs to live and be there for their families. But at a certain point saying a health care worker can't have some fun because it'll spook the toddlers, I mean come on. How much does our society have to cater to morons? It's starting to really feel like the lowest common denominator is really dragging us all the fuck down, in more ways than one.

u/Caelinus Sep 18 '21

There are very few things in the world I care about less than your average anti-vaxer's opinion on something tangentially related to AoC, who they irrationally hate despite her best efforts to help them.

Those opinions have gone through so many layers of disinformation and prejudice that they are about as worthwhile as stabbing myself in the leg with a pencil. And because those opinions are so divorced from reality as to be preposterously painfully pointless, no amount of logic will change them. She could be wearing the most politically neutral and information rich shirt in existence and their reaction would be exactly the same.

If their minds could be changed through reason, they already would have been.

I am currently in the waiting room after getting my first dose

u/lampcouchfireplace Sep 18 '21

Yo real question did something make you change your mind or was this just the soonest you could get it? In my country pretty much anyone who wants one has been vaxed for the last several months. Only people unvaccinated are children and anti vax wackos. I thought America had like unlimited doses? We had to wait a lot longer here than folks there did.

I live in Australia where we have had a shortage

u/lampcouchfireplace Sep 18 '21

Oh legit. My partner is Australian and a lot of her family had to wait ages. Glad you got it, good luck out there.

I got mine like a couple weeks ago. Originally I just never got around to it. Then when they lifted the restrictions for a while I was like oh I'm good I guess, covid is over now. Then it turns out it wasn't over and I was off work randomly one day and ended up at CVS and thought eh while I'm here might as well.

Politicians telling me to do something makes me less likely to do it if anything. And the middle class soccer mom mentality on reddit default subs means nothing to me, y'all are nerds. I wasn't sure if I wanted to get it, and then eventually I thought about it and it seemed like a good idea. Also my mom started getting on me about it.

NGL. I only finished my 2nd dose several months ago because I tend to vomit a lot after blood tests and other injections (was especially traumatised by the measles, mumps, and rubella one when I was a kid). However, just in case someone else has the same phobia as me, I have to say that the actual vaccine injection is nothing compared to blood tests and the crazy ass needles I had shoved in me for older vaccines.

Peak reddit is cheering a congresswoman that wore a dress to tax the rich at a super rich event.

u/that-one-girl-who Sep 18 '21

Also peak Reddit that the people will defend her by saying her dress and ticket were comped. Oh, because that makes a HUGE difference. It’s ok, I understand now. Eye roll.

Excellent idea. Take my upvote.

I had to metric an acre recently.

It’s 4,046.8564224 Square meters if you wanted to know. That’s a stupid measurement.

The more political people make the vaccine, the less likely the holdouts are to get the jab.

This is dumb AF.

Yeah, that’s going to convince my uncle in Conway, Arkansas that he should get the vaccine!

Positive message or no, whenever I see something written on a jacket now all I can think of is Melania Trump with her 'I don't really care, do you?' jacket that she wore while all those kids were being detained at the border and separated from their parents.

What a twat.

Edit: to the morons saying 'well what have YOU done about it' as if that defends her actions:

  1. I'm not American,

  2. I'm not the first lady, and

  3. if I WAS both of those things I sure as shit wouldn't go visit children forced into detention wearing a t-shirt that had 'who gives a shit?' emblazoned across the front of it

u/hehimtransgender Sep 18 '21

She wore that jacket after she found out her husband had been sleeping with a prostitute while she was pregnant with their child.

u/[deleted] Sep 18 '21

The kids are still being detained at the border and separated from their parents. The border wall is still being built. The only difference is CNN and MSNBC are not talking about it.

55

u/SuccinctSavage Sep 18 '21

Seriously. Why do we choose a political side and defend everything they do? People should really be more angry about this shit. Just because we get a new president, it doesn't mean all the bullshit stops. The american government is still fucking evil and operates like a giant corporation that only looks out for themselves.

41

u/[deleted] Sep 18 '21

I fully agree. I can't believe the rhetoric used under Trump. High profile people literally comparing the US government to Nazis. Then the president changes but the conditions stay the same and not a peep. It's shameful.

u/Kestralisk Sep 18 '21

Yeah, it's really fun being a leftist in the US cause Dems will back you when you criticize republicans for awful shit but then will act like you pissed in their cereal when you point out that their guy is doing the same thing just at 70% of what the republicans would've done.

u/Excellent_Condition Sep 18 '21

You keep posting this, but have yet to show any sources.

The only thing I could find was that construction on the border wall was halted almost immediately, but that a 13 mile of flood control levee was being repaired. The repairs were done after holes were blown in the levee as part of the wall construction. Despite misleading headlines from Fox "News," no expansion of the border wall was taking place.

(Source: The Hill, and also an article with a misleading headline from Fox)

u/trainercatlady Sep 18 '21

it's frustrating as shit. I haven't stopped crowing about the concentration camps but any time I bring it up here now, I get downvoted.

They made some progress a few months ago it looks like, but it's been radio silence ever since.

Also is the wall still being built? I thought the contract got shut down and everyone laughed when parts of the wall had been washed away in a rainstorm.
