For 13 year olds

2018.01.26 23:58 People that are 13

Welcome! This subreddit is like teenagers, but exclusively for 13 year olds.


Even most member countries of the United Nations don't even require their citizens to live in their respective territories permanently, unless those countries are communist or very autocratic. But if Verdis is really democratic, it should never require any actual/physical residency requirements for the citizens. We should always enjoy our freedom to choose where we want to live, which passport we want to use, which car we want to drive. Nobody should take our freedom away. There are many ways to help Verdis stand out and progress as a nation aside from residing in it physically/actually. It is not a joke transferring your residency from the Americas, Africa or Asia to Europe where Verdis is located. It needs health and wealth adjustments. Our bodies are different. In my case, I am allergic to winter and cold weather. So, I choose to live permanently anywhere in Southeast Asia where the temperature is always hot and humid because I am very healthy in hot and humid weather. Adjustment is not easy as I am already 42 years old. Not all Verdisians are young. Another thing, is the wealth adjustment. Mostly people from third world countries like many countries in Africa and Asia have a low salary and the standard of living is not as expensive as in Europe. Verdis uses Euro or US dollars. That is very expensive for us to reside in Europe permanently. Even if we get a job in Europe, we have to adjust to many things and that is very uncomfortable. So, it is better to make the physical/actual residency a choice, especially for us Verdisians that are not new citizens. There are many ways to help Verdis while continuing to uplift the spirit of democracy that we love so much in Verdis.

2023.06.07 15:33 London975 Advice Needed - 22 Male

I'm a 22-year-old white male and suspect I have low testosterone, I haven't been to the doctors to confirm this for certain but some of the signs are clear. The main one being that I don't experience morning erections every day and my sex drive has probably decreased from when I was 18-20. I live a pretty healthy lifestyle with a balance diet, I also lift weights 4-5 times per week and would consider myself intermediate to advanced in the gym.
I really want to try and naturally boost my testosterone before going to the doctors however an issue with the whole thing is hair loss... I really value my hair and the idea of increasing my testosterone and that leading to hair loss or increased hair loss is really off-putting. Another concern is gyno, that's also off-putting. I'm leaning towards Shilajit but still need to do some more research. What would your recommendation be to increase testosterone without promoting hair loss if you were in my exact situation?
For reference, I take the following daily: Optimum Nutrition's multi-vitamin, omega 3 fish oils, Vitamin D3 (2000IU), Zinc and Magnesium. If you have any questions for me please let me know, I'll gladly answer. I really hope you can take some time out of your day to give me some advice/recommendations.

2023.06.07 15:33 anxietybear456 What to expect when coming off Zoloft

I have been on a 25mg - 75mg dose of Zoloft for the past 5 years. 25mg for a few months, then 50mg for 3 years, and 75mg for the last 2 years. I think I am ready to come off of the medication because although it has helped me tremendously, I don't think it is something I want to take for the rest of my life, and I feel I am in a pretty good place mentally now. I am meeting with my doctor in about a week to discuss coming off the medication and coming up with a safe taper plan. I'd like to know from anyone who has come off of Zoloft after being on it for an extended period of time - what should I expect as far as withdrawals go, and how long do they last? Not sure if this additional info is helpful - but I have come off a pretty high dose of Valium after being on it for nearly 7 years and didn't have any major issues (minor things like brain fog, very short-term insomnia, a bit if heightened anxiety, loss of appetite). Will the withdrawals for Zoloft be similar?

WTS: WinWing F-16 Stick (MFSSB Version) and WinWing F-16 Orion 2 Throttle - both mint
Hi guys, I purchased these bad boys at the beginning of the year and just don't fly DCS and BMS as much as I wanted to. They are essentially brand new. I have the F-16 stick mounted on a MonsterTech table mount and would prefer to sell those as a unit, but can separate if necessary. The Orion throttle has the metal guide (not plastic like they're making it out of now). I'm asking $700 + shipping (US) for both + MonsterTech mount, or $500 for the stick & mount, and $250 for the throttle. I live in Northern VA for shipping reference. PM me with your zip and I can estimate shipping.

2023.06.07 15:33 TTR21 Toddler is extra needy and whiney when her mom is around

when she is alone with me (her dad) or any other family member, she is relatively obedient and don't whine as much. But with her mom around every little thing is a reason to cry and beg for.
Some people told me you cant really "spoil" a 2 and a half year old toddler, but I dunno if I agree with that. For example, our daughter got some rain boots and is in love with them for months now to the point she hates shoes. Up a few weeks ago, she would wear shoes with me, but with her mom all she had to do is cry a bit and she would get the rain boots. It got to a point where she wont even wear shoes anymore other than rainboots, even with me, without crying for almost 10 minutes straight. This is just one of a few examples where I think her mom gives in too easily and I cant help but think that this is really spoiling our daughter
Dont get me wrong, she is a great mom. But do you guys think I have a point and she needs to be more strict with our daughter? or is almost 3 years old too young to be more strict? Could be it just simply has to do with her being the favorite parents so our daughter asks more stuff from her

2023.06.07 15:33 CoffeeAndCats2000 My dog hit adolescents and his body language is a bit aggressive on walks.

So I do have a session w our trainer planned for next week but it’s a weird nuanced thing.
I feel like he got a rush of testosterone in his little body and he’s body language to other dogs is starting to be triggering
This is mostly on walks so like he doesn’t pull, ignores most people (which was our issue) he behaves fine. So nothing for us to really correct. BUT his body language is that constantly monitoring kind of “I’m a tough guy”. Like his body swells and he hard stares at other dogs. I know this is triggering for other dogs who most of the time ignore him so I step in front of his vision and say “eyes on me”
It is almost like he knows he can’t bark first but if he instigates them into barking he can have the shouting match he’s looking for.
He’s looking for an excuse to bark at something.
So he is actually really good w most other dogs he has never had a fight, whenever we introduce him to other dogs it goes well, we train at a Huge dog centre full of other animals never had an issue with him.
I told my husband he was being a bit naughty on walks and he took him out and he came back and he was like “yeah I see what you mean.”

2023.06.07 15:32 Gold-Spell-801 I (F19) am torn between my two best friends (M19) and (M18)

Hi all. I F19 am torn between two people I’m interested in M18 and M19.
I’ve been struggling for a while on this whole situation. I have decided to start dating again after my last relationship ended poorly due to him, going to jail, which I will not disclose anything else here just the fact that he went there. So I obviously started flirting with people and getting around and kind of putting myself back up on the scene and I really didn’t expect that I’d have to make this decision. One of the people I’m interested in is my guy, best friend(M19) who I’ve known for seven years, we’ve had things on and off over the years, but as of now it’s gotten pretty serious, and the other best friend (M18), I met off of a mutual friend online, and I’ve been friends with him for about a few months now.
I have been stressing over this for a few weeks now. It’s gotten to the point where I’m so stressed out and nervous about this whole situation that I’ve gotten sick because of it because of lack of sleep and other things. Both guys I’m interested in have redeeming qualities and I like both of them. I just hate rejecting people. I’m a very non-confrontational person and really don’t like to have that awkward situation with someone after you rejected them.
My guy best friend(M19), he’s here where I live. He’s really good with my family specifically, my little sister who is obsessed with him. He does a lot for me and we hang out every weekend and have spent a lot of time flirting and everything. He also met my mom before she passed away and we both can cope with that. my issues I have with him is that he’s been my best friend for so long that if we were to get together and have a serious relationship and break off, it would be really bad. I’m also worried how our friendship would be after I reject him and how that would turn out like that. I go over to his house all the time and vice versa so a lot of my time that I spend getting out rather than just staying home will pretty much be out of the window. I am also afraid that if we’re in a relationship, I won’t wanna go much farther than casual dating because I’m afraid of the seriousness and doing sexual stuff with him considering the fact he’s still my best friend.
My online best friend(M18) has been fun to hang out with and the chemistry is there. I get along well with his friends and we talk a lot on video games and connect with each other a lot over text. Issues I have are that he’s out of state and even though the distance will close with him going to college it’s still tough. I’m also hesitant because none of my online relationships in the past have worked due to other things but he seems like he’s actively willing to work for this. He also is someone I can go to about sexual stuff. I don’t feel uncomfortable when I talk to him and times where he gets heated are fun and interesting.
Both guys I’m interested in will be alright with what I choose and won’t be angry. If I say no to both of them or whatever I choose. I’m just so stressed out about this because I haven’t really had to do this really ever in my life. Both give me the princess treatment and treat me well, and I reciprocate in my own way, Whether that be buying them things or spending time with them.
Sorry if this post is shallow or if it sounds bad I just am really lost on what to do. I don’t know if I should just stay single and just wait or if I should choose one over the other I just can’t be stressed out about this anymore. I am willing to accept any advice if someone has some and what possible things to do.
TLDR: F/19 is torn between her irl best friend of 7 Years M/19 and her online Best friend M/18.

2023.06.07 15:32 gurushankarp Looking for a laptop for photo editing

So - I've been into birding and other wildlife photography for the last year. I like building a story around my pictures and hence spend considerable time processing my photos. I also try to add in a few videos into the mix on my social page. Currently, I'm using my work laptop which is an 8 gb HP i5 8th gen machine to run: 1. Adobe Bridge 2. Topaz - Denoising software 3. Affinity Photo / Lightroom
Sometimes I end up having all these open in my workflow. This throttles my process so bad and my laptop becomes close to unresponsive, for obvious reasons 😅
So I've decided that I need a better laptop to do this photo / video editing (predominantly photo). I've also decided to get a monitor for better While reading about what are the requirements for this workflow I stumbled upon some options: 1. Macbook Air M1 2. Macbook Air M2 3. Asus Zenbook series (Pro / Pro Duo) 4. Asus Vivobook Pro 5. Some gaming laptop? (Might be too heavy I feel). 6. Dell XPS series (expensive? For what they offer, I feel)
I haven't really researched much into other brands. Looks like what I need is: i5/i7 12th/13th generation, a 16GB RAM minimum and a 512GB SSD minimum. Discreet graphics card could be helpful especially with denoising, but integrated should suffice I think?
I'm from India and my budget would be around INR 1 - 1.4 lacs
The problem I have with MacBook is the base specs seem very less and the upgrades make it expensive. Second, the I/O ports are too limited. Also, the transition to a different OS is something I'm not sure if it's a good idea? What are you suggestions? Are there any other laptops I can look at apart from the above-mentioned ones?
Note: I also like the idea of a touchscreen/stylus, or a dial like feature (from Asus). Although I'm not sure if it matters at that much. I will take my laptop on my travels so shouldn't be too heavy as well.

2023.06.07 15:32 thevioletjinx Toddler with dark scratch like marks

Age 1.5 years old
Sex female
Weight 25lbs
Race White
Duration of complaint 3 weeks
Location right leg
Any existing relevant medical issues none
Current medications none
Include a photo if relevant
Noticed it May 17, been 3 weeks now. The day before had her with me outside doing yard work, she unfortunately gota lot of bug bites. At first thought it was from scratching the bites, but it was never red. l'd assume for something this dark it would have had to have been a deep scratch but there was no such thing, just dark marks.
It doesn't seem to bother her but it also isn't healing or going away.

2023.06.07 15:32 EyeLittle415 Second chance interview?

I interviewed for a job at an organization I love a few months ago. I completely bombed the interview. It’s no excuse, but my current job was very busy and stressful and I just wasn’t prepared. It had been a long time since I had interviewed. It’s absolutely my fault. The job is still posted and continues to be reposted. I know the job, I know the org, and I know the person that recently left the position as I had previously worked at this org many years ago. I left on very good terms so that is not an issue. I know I can do this job and I can do it well. Do I reach out for a second chance or is that just looking desperate at this point? I appreciate any advice!

2023.06.07 15:32 Spirited_Bee6840 The Customer is Not Always Right

This is a pretty long story about my first job in retail. I have a lot of horror stories from that job but this is one that sticks with me even 4-5 years later.
A few years ago after I had just started college, I got my first job working in the shoe department of a sporting goods store. My job was simple, assistant customers with finding the shoes we want, keep the isles neat and organized, and occasionally order shoes for customers if they didn't have them in stock. One day my department had a call from a customer asking if we had a shoe in stock. I checked, told them we did, and then they asked if I could put the shoe on hold for them. Once again, I did, and kept it in the back till they arrived.
When they did arrive, they told me the name and I went retrieve the shoe for them. When they got the shoe, they claimed it was the wrong shoe. I was confused at first cause I thought I had gotten the one they wanted, but decided that I may have made a mistake. Not making a big deal about it I apologized and asked for the product name again to search our inventory, only to realize I had gotten the same shoe I just handed to them.
Now I was really confused, the shoe they were asking for was the shoe I just gave them, but they said it was wrong. So I decided to take them to the isle the shoe came from to see if they would like to look at the selection. The shoe they had asked for, which was still the shoe I had given them, was actually on display. They saw the name to confirm it themselves, but still insisted it was wrong. Come to find out the reason they said it was wrong is cause, supposedly, the show underwent some kind of design change and now instead of being a pure black shoe, it was a black shoe with a small, white line going around the bottom of the shoe. It was the same exact shoe but they were confused because apparently this line was not there the last time they bought it.
They explained they were buying it for their son who worked on an oil rig and needed this type of work shoe for the job because they knew it was the one he liked, but were confused because of the new design of the shoe. They were an elderly couple so I assumed they just thought it was a different shoe, and knowing their son liked it they were concerned with getting him a different pair he might not like as much.
I reassured them it was the same shoe despite it's change in appearance, and I'm sure their son would still be happy with it, to which they continued to argue it wasn't right. It now felt like I was trying to convince them that one small design change wouldn't change the way the shoe worked. When that still didn't get through to them I tried offering a different pair, to which they insisted they needed this shoe but without the white line.
At this point I'm getting frustrated because it had been 30 minutes since I started trying to help these idiots.
Eventually my manager walked by and asked what was going on. After the customers explained the situation, she joined to try and help me. Eventually she managed to convince them it was the same shoe. I was a little annoyed that it took her 5 minutes to do something I'd been trying to do for the last 30 minutes but was happy this exchange was finally over... Or so I thought.
After convincing them, they decided they wanted me to order the shoes for them rather than just buy the pair I had already given them. Our store had a system that allowed you to order a pair of shoes online and have them sent directly to your house. So I started going through the process of ordering the shoes for them. If any of you have ever purchased something online before, which I'd assume is most of you, it was the same process.
The system requires information like your home address, email address, zip code, phone number, etc.
I should mention by the way they had mentioned having ordered a pair of shoes from us before, and I'd been working here roughly around 2 years by this point so I knew how our ordering system worked, and I know the way we do it had never changed. So I start asking for their information, first of all they claim they don't have an email address. This was back in 2019, it was incredibly baffling to me that anyone in a modern era didn't have an email address, but that's not where the frustration continued. As I had asked for each bit of information they had to question me on why they needed it. Then at one point the old lady, who had been doing most of the talking during this whole exchange, interupts me to claim she had never had to give us this information before and didn't understand why I needed it. I then explain to her that this is the way we've always ordered shoes for our customers, and if she had ordered with us before like she said then she definitely has had to have given us this information.
She starts to rant about it and claims, and I quote, "I may be on crazy pills but I know I've never had to do this before."
After letting her finish her rant I explain, a bit short of patience this time, that this is just how the process works and if she wants these shoes she's doing to have to cooperate with me.
Eventually I get her information, order the shoes, and they leave. This entire exchange lasted a total of 45 minutes, which is 40 minutes longer than it needed to be. By the time they left my manager saw how frustrated I was and told me I could go sit in the break room to calm down for a minute, which I gladly did.
Customer service employees do not get paid enough to deal with people like that day after day. We are human, not machines, you cannot talk to us like we're your computers. Half the time we don't know what's going on either and most of us don't even care.
Which is why anyone who tells me the customer is always right, I laugh in their face and tell them to go fuck themselves.

Hello guys. My country experienced an earthquake an hour ago and I found it odd that my old Android alerted me for it but my iPhone didnt. I went to settings, then notifications and scrolled down to check the alerts but I don't even have the option anymore. I am from Bulgaria and we had AMBER alert last year and it worked fine but it is gone now. I know that these alerts are not available in every region but if I had them last year, why didnt I get alerted this time?

2023.06.07 15:31 Real_Lemon8789 Data security after Windows remote wipe?

The blog article linked below says that data is recoverable after a remote wipe because, for some reason, Windows backs up data to the Windows.old directory before a remote wipe and then empties the directory in an insecure manner. This makes the data recoverable after the wipe by mounting the drive and using data recovery tools to undelete that data.
Wipe Tool Intune delete object Clean the Drive (
If this is true, then isn't performing a remote wipe of a stolen laptop putting local data at higher risk? If you don't perform a remote wipe, at least the drive remains encrypted with Bitlocker.
If an Intune remote wipe isn't good enough for drive disposal, how could it be good enough to protect data on a stolen laptop?

2023.06.07 15:30 August_West_1990 Appreciation: The Science Room sketches
I recently came to my own personal conclusion that these are the best, most consistently funny post-Stefon recurring sketch / character(s).
For starters, they only do them once a season, so we don't get the risk of diminishing returns like we do with sketches that appear multiple times a year. I think every installment at least has a year-long gap between them.
Secondly, Cecily and Mikey are fantastic in these. They are so keyed in and dedicated to these characters. Their voices and mannerisms always land.
Finally, and I think this is the sketch's greatest strength, they only do these sketches when they have the right host who can convincingly go from a cheery, cheesy teacher to an unbridled fountain of increasing anger at the stupidity he is experiencing. It requires a dynamic range only certain hosts can pull off.
As for the best one, Rockwell has the classic f-bomb and has the advantage of being the first one, but I think Sudeikis's is the funniest: the way he jumps on Melissa's flub at mispronouncing Lonnie is absolutely fantastic, plus Jason's really second to none when it comes when it comes to comically angry fits of rage.
Oh, and one more thing: these pieces really feel timeless. I can see them being done in the 1970s' with Gilda in Cecily's role, maybe Bill or Belushi as Mikey's, and Aykroyd or Buck Henry as the teacher. Just a damn good old fashioned sketch concept.

Men ought always to pray, and not to faint. — Luke 18:1
Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine in his journey is come to me and I have nothing to set before him? And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.—Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.
I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.—As a prince hast thou power with God and with men.—Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving.
[Jesus] went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
Luke 11:5-8; Eph 6:18; Gen 32:26; Gen 32:28; Col 4:2; Luke 6:12.


Forgive all my sins. — Ps 25:18
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.—I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.
The Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins.—In Whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.—Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour.—Having forgiven you all trespasses, blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, … who forgives all thine iniquities.

2023.06.07 15:30 laurathepoet Why are there no romance novelists in Wikipedia?

Well, I know the answer. And you probably do too. It's a combination of how the world views the romance genre as somehow less noteworthy PLUS the fact that the vast majority of people who contribute to Wikipedia are male (and I'm concluding that most romance readers are female, though we do know many men read romance too.)
I looked up romance novels on Wikipedia and found a category by writer. There are eight romance novelists listed. EIGHT. EIIIIGGGHHHT!
I used to write for Wikipedia (like, three articles total tho) in an attempt to beef up the poetry hub, specifically for female contemporary poets. Would any of you consider being a contributor for info about romance? I don't want to start an official group or anything, I just want to encourage people to help fill in this gap with our collective knowledge :)
And as for authors that should be on Wikipedia, who is a MUST to include? Which authors pioneered a genre? Who is an author most romance readers have read at some point? Who are the amazingly popular writers from the last five years? Who went viral over the pandemic? Who has written an expansive universe of books and characters so large that you need a chart to know the reading order? This could be very fun to brainstorm!
and BONUS if you have good info on how to get started as an editor, that would rock :)

Indiana Jones treasure hunt on a camping trip
Hey all! I'm creating a mini birthday treasure hunt for my bf. We're going camping so I was thinking of making an Indiana Jones - inspired hunt. He always dreamed of having Indiana Jones adventures, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to have one.
I have already been to the camp we're going to, so I know the place. It's located on a small island (the whole island is a camp) and the last time I went with my friends, we discovered a small cave that could be reached from the sea. It's not dangerous, it's very wide, more like a grotto. So I plan to hide the treasure there. On the island there is also a small church that could be interesting to include, but it's used for storage.
The idea is that before the trip he receives an old leather journal with a map and some clues inside, along with a dry bag that contains some small camping gear such as a swiss knife, headlamp, an enamel mug etc.. In the cave I'll hide a golden egg with something inside (that'll stay secret).
After camping on the island, we're moving to another camp in the mountains, but I haven't been there yet. It would be so cool to hide another egg there so he could collect them, but I don't know the place.
I would like to hear some ideas for the clues, storyline, props or anything that crosses your mind to create an immersive experience.

2023.06.07 15:30 kingfiasco [Lucky Guess] 6/7

Oh boy, that did not end well last night. Gonna be a tough one against Burnes tonight, no pressure on Kremer to keep the runs off the board until they can get to the Brewers bullpen. Although, the O's have somehow managed to turn the offense into over gear against team aces so who even knows what the bats will do tonight.
No winners from last night :(

2023.06.07 15:30 StCrimson667 Bending and Warping Text

Bending and Warping Text
I'm making this cover for a short story I wrote. All I want is to bend the text upwards. That's it. I don't want anything fancy, I don't want to break it or fish-eye it or make it look completely incomprehensible. Just bend the text up a bit to fill in some of the empty space up top. I've looked around online, but none of the answers have worked or require WAY more work than they're worth. Here's a list of the different things I've seen/tried.
  1. I'd have to break up the title into individual letters and arrange them all manually which, uh, no. WAY too much work and WAY too fiddly. I would never get a good curve in a million years.
  2. I'm not using another program to JUST warp text and then importing it back into Krita. There HAS to be a simpler, more convenient way to do it.
  3. I converted it to a vector and then looked through the G'MIC, but none of them were what I was looking for and the preview window is SO tiny that I can barely even see what it's doing.
  4. I converted it into a paint layer and went over to the tool options to try a mesh, but there's no mesh button in tool options. I don't know if it's my version of Krita, I downloaded it from the site in March and the program doesn't say what version it is.
Like, seriously. In Photoshop, warping text is easy. You just go to warp text and you can warp it easily. Is there nothing like that in Krita? I also want to put my name angled on the wing of the bird at the bottom, is this not possible in Krita? I've been quite happy with Krita over the last few months, it's quirky and likes to do things it's own unique way, but I'm getting over the learning curve, but this has just stopped me dead. If I can't do something as simple as bending text in a simple and straightforward way, then I'm going to have to find another program to work with.
