there's been so much research on it

People complaining about Myerrs Briggs like it’s some fad teenagers came up with an not a long trusted, well researched and scientifically founded test used to determine personality types.

HELP! theres just so much info about the mormon church i literally don't know where to start investigating. its easier with other religions, you just read the bible, but lds church has so many things and components. where do you suggest i start my beginning research? please help!!

Yes I completely understand how hard it can be! Sometimes its still overwhelming to me, its okay, there is absolutely no rush! I will admit, many people convert within a year or so, but don’t let that cause any pressure, I have been investigating for a year now and I am no where near choosing to convert.

Firstly start off by learning about what the church believes in.

 https://www.lds.org/manual/gospel-principles?lang=eng (this link is to the Gospel Principles manual, which gives an amazing basis of what the church believes in)

 http://www.mormon.org/what-do-mormons-believe this is just for a basic understanding of the church’s beliefs.

The church uses four books. That’s all. The bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and The Pearl of Great Price.

As for the actual reading, start at the very beginning, the Book of Mormon, and the bible if you haven’t read it already. I am currently rereading the bible, at the same time I am studying the Book of Mormon, I am only at the beginning.

Every now and then I get curious and will read the D&C, but I want to finish the BoM before I do an in depth reading of the D&C and the Pearl of Great Price.

I advise you to go to church, especially for the classes, because there is a Gospel Principles class, at the church I go to this is usually lead by a missionary, which is great because they would love to help you further! 

Learn the basics about the church and its beliefs though! You want to know what you’re you’re really getting into first. But read the Book of Mormon too :)

Explore sites like fairmormon.org     lds.org     and     mormon.org

And feel completely comfortable messaging me! :D I would love to chat and answer any questions you might have.

im thinking about corvax (and writing that fic) instead of writing my research log and

it’s canon that corvax is a yoglabs employee (or equivalent) (experiment??? imagine xeph creating him and being like ‘oh shit he’s hot’) because like, why else would he be in the blind date episode. so…

I didn't know you had autism, when were you diagnosed? I've been thinking I might be on the spectrum lately but I don't know how to approach it with a doctor or my therapist.

i was put on the spectrum while i was impatient- the doctors thought it fit. im still trying to get used to it, so bear (bare?) with me for a bit while i attempt to wrap my head around it! i had suspicions, probably much like you do, and i think the best way to maybe self diagnose is to do your research. read your stuff. theres tons and tons of material out there- go for it, but be wary of certain articles that advocate for autism speaks because i guarantee that those are not in your best interest

also, remember that autism is a spectrum, not a line or a point or a specific set of symptoms. lets put it this way, since this is the way i understand autism and my experiences with it—autism is like a different operating system. it’s not wrong or bad, things just run a little differently than most people are used to. it’s a spectrum- there’s lots of different types of autism and people experience it very differently.

had this super real and important thought

sexism caused the 2008 market crash. when a woman who was in charge (brooksley born) of regulation of the derivatives market (I think) warned that the economy was about to take a turn for the worst, and head econ honchos (Greenspan, levitt) were like “get out of here you silly little girl!” and then the whole US economy tanked and brought the world down with it. THERES SO MUCH POTENTIAL RESEARCH FOR THIS AND ITS SO INTERESTING!!!! I’ve been thinking of maybe designing my own major because Bates doesn’t offer international relations, so basically I’d have to just do politics :/. And for IR there’s so much potential for non-profit sector jobs and also public service and diplomacy!!! all stuff I’d love!!! ok hopefully in four years when I have to write my thesis I’ll remember this bye

I feel like ive been researching on this for days now.. but im so confused and not confident when it come to components and my requirements. theres So much to look into.. so hoping you guys can help me out a bit!Primary Use - high quality playback( 4k/3d)/Netflix/streaming, XMBC/plex, sabnzbd/sickbeard/couchpotato, fast file storage for the household.secondary - id like to game on it, if not now, then allowance for upgrade in future (DOTA, arcade emulators etc).Id like all devices in the house to be able to access the files within the computer effortlessly (wireless/LAN), and play for example a tv show from the machine onto (laptops, mobiles, tabletsTV.. is DLNA useful in this regard?NFI) In the future theatre/office room I will have my Epson tw6100w projector, ps4, and i would like to have the work horse/htpc/NAS (connected via LAN to router in living room). In the living room, i have the router, wdtv (probably eventually be replaced with SFF htpc), a samsung UA60F8000AM TV & 7.1 audio through Samsung HTF9750w.i already have wave Wireless keyboard & mouse. I would like it to be silent. Would also like IR/bluetooth remote control for xmbc etc. No need for optical drive. Require MS Windows 7/8. Ability to reduce energy use when not in use (or standby mode like TV). Is SSD necessary? Ill also require an australian PCU, and Im new to builds & its been a while since dabbling with components. Do you require sound cards these days? Also tossing up on the idea of having free to air tv play within the build. Ive only just discovered/delved into NAS & SFF as an option today whilst researching so any comments on organising devices between the two rooms would be appreciated.. eg. would it be better to have a stand alone NAS next to router in the living room, and separate HTPC in theatre.. or combine HTPC and NAS in one unit, in the theatre/office? if that makes sense?~10tB+, hdmi (dual direction?) ports, usb 3.0 ports at back, front usbx2 for ir receiver for keyboard/mouse & IR remote, dlna?What kind of price am i looking at here? im expecting $1000+ but got no idea, particularly when it comes to the SFF, components ill require and the addition, or not, of graphics/video card. Im also in Australia.. not sure if that adds weight on anything?Just ask if any clarification needed.. not sure if i explained it all correctly. Appreciate any assistance!! via /r/buildapc
