    So yesterday I read that Christie's Auction sold their first digital NFT artwork. The artist "Beeple" made a digital piece of artwork (which generally means an image of this can be shared but you bought the 'digital rights to the original') and it went for $69 MILLION DOLLARS! WTF??? If I make a meme, everyone shares it and I get NOTHING. It doesn't matter if this was the only known original nude pic of Marilyn Monroe spread eagle, $69 MILLION??? Anyone can view an image of it, so what does it matter that you 'OWN' it? I guess it's like the whole BITCOIN farce.

    My thought process if that if I own it no one else can. Kinda like a mental thing.

    Per above post I did...I don't want to unleash the full content of the box of stuff I don't get.

    But I'll say...
    (this sounds incel to me but it's not, I think it's stupid not to own your own situation in life)

    I don't get why, dispite women wanting and acting on desires to brake glass walls and move into wider rolls in human life, why don't more women act more on their interests regarding attraction ? I'll admit I'm fairly oblivious/clueless, and we are in pandemic time...but that's only been the last year or so.
    Why aren't women more aggressive or overt in social life ?
    All I can think of is, with voicing interest, taking the first step, you gotta own that as your own actions rather than submissions. But, if you submit to someone's interest you can feel blameless, your not a 'bad girl' and I wonder if that nagging, judging voice is inside some women's heads ?
    Or, maybe it's just a vastly more common for women to prefer/find the roll of feeling 'taken' rather than 'taking' more arousing ?
    I'm also not sure if I'm articulating this as well as I could be.

    I don't understand how email spam is supposed to be illegal (even though I get some regularly)
    But real paper spam advertising in my mail box sending tree pulp into land fills (if it missis the recycling) is legal...
    Is it supposed to be freedom of speech ? It's just crap and never makes it through the front door unless it looks like credit card aps I need to labour or pay to shred.

    I mean at lease email is just zero's and ones that can be erased but phisical mail costs time and money to make and get rid of. I say make it illegal too.

    I wouldn't...
    It's one thing to say it here as a joke.

    It's another to post a reminder your wife will see.
    They don't like getting reminded about their quirks and faults... (then again, neither do men :rolleyes:)

    Old truism, they can say it about themselves, but you can't say it about them.
    Yep, it's a double-standard and not fair. But still, to keep the peace... :oops:

    That's one thing I "do" understand. ;)

    I can add to that:

    Need.
    No, she doesn't actually need your help, she just wants your help. But can't or won't use the word want.

    Sigh (the action, not the word).
    A bad thing, especially used with the words listed above.

    It should be ok. The coin has a flip side that talks about all the needs, wants and game playing motivators of the other partners.

    I don't see this as limited to hetero relationships, maybe just different words.

    I don't understand why we built a society around churning money and chasing false rewards that encourage gathering more money than one could ever need or spend in generations, which sort of robs the following generations of the need and benefits of finding fulfilling work and purpose.

    Because they want you to care, know you really don't, and don't have the energy to explain it to you.
    At least that is how it was explained to me by Jadzia.

    My hypothesis:
    They know it bugs men.
    Much like sighs with "I'm fine" explanations.
