RubyAdams Offline38 • Casually dating • Female •
I was educated and worked as an archaeologist; I have traveled to many parts of the world & speak many languages. That's just me. I guess I can be an elitist: sometimes I joke about classic cinema, switch languages in the middle of a sentence, and reference works of literature. In fact, on the wall of my livingroom is a framed 16x20 print of the last two paragraphs of the Great Gatsby. I also have a rather large white queen chess piece in that particular corner. Other times I'm completely immature and giggle a lot. I'm a real time owned submissive and do not seek anything else; especially from "online Doms." I am not a switch nor do I wish to be so - please don't PM me to ask if I like submissive men or if I'll "dom" you. Since I am female, the word would be "domme." BDSM is a lifestyle, not random kinky sex. In general, I am drawn to Dominant men and men with worldly experiences - even just for friendships. I have nothing in common with people who have never traveled outside of their state. Although I am liberal, I really don't care if you are conservative - just do not even try to refrence Fox News, what was posted on Twitter, or said in the parking lot of a landscaping company wedged between a crematorium and dildo store. Could there be a more apt location for a feral Trumpster to hold a press conference? Still laughing at the unintended symbolism of holding a press conference at Four Seasons Landscaping.
My general outlook on people is best summerized by a line of lyrics by Nirvana: I wish I was like you: easily amused.
I quilt a lot and belong to a very conservative Christian church. On the other hand, I'm a radical feminist.
In summary, I'm a delicious mix of dichotomies. Oh, and I love the Yankees.
RubyAdams: Never thought I'd be so happy about a guilty verdict. But 3. Whoa! In criminal court, that's beyond a reasonable doubt - 99.9% ... oh my stars. Doesn't change the grief of Grorge Floyd's family, but it goes a long way in our culture.
I didn't follow the case closely, but praise God for delivering justice.

Sunny B Blessed: I hope this will show police that they are not above the law, they are paid to protect and serve, not to murder the people they are supposed to be protecting and serving.
I also hope that pre-employment testing of police will be much more in depth, checking the history of applicants, to root out anyone who was, for example, known to be a bully in high school, or have racist things on their Facebook pages, etc. They should also be drug tested for steroids and other drugs every month.
RubyAdams in reply to e_malekpour1377: No.
The jury pool is a random selection of registered voters. Then each is questioned before seated on the jury. They can't have prior knowledge of the case. No idea how they seated this jury. Each lawyer is allowed to question potential jurors.they are allowed to dismiss potential jurors who answer the questions "wrong" for example "have you or any members of your immediate family been victims of a felony?" The prosecution might like to hear yes as more empathetic, but the defense might dismiss thinking biased.
Juries also can't watch the news during the trial, talk to media, and sometimes are sequestered.
Long process but no one said guilty to make black people happy. All three charges require a unanimous decision (12 guilty votes) and the verdict came back rather quickly, so I doubt there was much discussion.
A very good movie that shows how a jury works is 12 Angry Men with Henry Fonda. Yes, it's old. Black & white
My dear friend isn't from America so no one flame him

EmmEffinPrincess in reply to Sir Gavin: I know you didn't ask me but I have an answer. I got the 2nd Moderna jab last week. My wife got the 2nd pfizer jab yesterday. My mother, step dad, brother, sis in law, niece, and nephew also all completed the pfizer. None of us had any complications or side effects. To put it in perspective, I have multiple autoimmune disease and my doctor expected me to react. Our ages range from 17 to 72. Health ranges from zero health problems to my mom being in cancer treatment. Biggest issue was a sore arm.
marshmallow_: Ruby, thank you for your honest opinion. He blocked me, which was very expected, so i cant post my comment (reply to you) under his post, Posting it here:
Armenians lived here in Baku with us long years, Only in our block we had 3 families, they were too talkative and warm people. i remember them all clearly, although was too little.What can i say, they are just the most sneaky nationality all over the world.Very big nationalists,,, i always was thinking ordinary people are not guilty, but after seeing them online i understood they are mostly the same. They insult my country and spread slanders about us, They are lying about everything, so i do feel and think they are the ones that we Azerbaijani people should never get close with again, cause they are too dangerous, knife in the back is always expected from them..
İ am not sure whether they are being lied by their historians or whats the reason of such hatred,, Cause its just not normal that you hate innocent people which were mass murdered by you and you occupied their territories..
I would suggest you to watch this film about, it has English subtitles.
Short intoduction of film:
"Cry" (Azerb. Fəryad) is an Azerbaijani war film, shot in 1993 by Jeyhun Mirzoyev. The film tells about the fate of the Azerbaijani soldier during the years of the Karabakh war, tells about the events that took place at that time in Karabakh. The film shows scenes of battles and victims of the Khojaly massacre. The film was shot at the Azerbaijanfilm and Ashkarfilm studios. According to the creators, they used stories told by refugees, prisoners of war and soldiers who fought. The film also filmed the eyewitnesses of those events, as well as those who fled from Khojaly.
This film ideally reveals armenians true faces.
Note: This is a war film and a very hard one, so if you are too sensitive please dont watch it.
RubyAdams: Background: I was actively anorexic in my teens and still find myself falling into certain habits. It's a lot like other addictions - recovering but never cured.
I'm wondering if people without an eating disorder do this?
I have a large female friend. I'm sure she is medically obese if not severely obese. She's aware her doctor wants her to lose weight, etc. But, as she slurps on a venti caramel frappuccino with 2 extra pumps of caramel and "just had" pizza for lunch... she complains that she has no idea why she's fat and frankly "is happy with the way I look."
I have to pretend I didn't hear it cause I wanna blurt out "because you eat like a lumberjack but sit on your ass all day."
Other people wanna says stuff like that? I feel like it's similar to an alcoholic saying but everyone else drinks or but I only had 5 drinks... rationalizing and normalizing...
But maybe it's my food issues?

EmmEffinPrincess: It honestly sounds like she could be suffering from an ED as well. A lot of people think "anorexia and bulimia only" when they think if ED but there is a lot more to it than that. Your friend needs a session or three with an ED trained therapist and an ED educated dietitian. I have battled my whole life with ED. I have textured eating disorder. Caused by my sensory processing disorder
RubyAdams in reply to EmmEffinPrincess: I totally agree about her maybe having an eating disorder! Yet, I don't know what to do because she's in denial and angry if you brooch the topic. In the mean time, it's just about sending me over the edge.
EmmEffinPrincess in reply to RubyAdams: If her medical doctor was worth half a copay they would have already suggested she go to therapy to see if some of her weight issues was unresolved trauma or ED
RubyAdams: Who else is signing up for the My Pillow owner's chat site? I'm so excited cause total free speech except for the C-word, N-word, F-word, and taking the Lord's name in vain.
So I guess using a racist name against Asians, Latinos, Arabs. .. is okay. And umm? Taking the Lord's name in vain? Does he mean Jehova, Yahwey, Elohim, Allah....

RubyAdams: Omg karen, I never thought about returned pillows.
Jim - the My Pillow owner, name escapes me, is a huge fan of Trump. Even spoke at the Republican National convention. Went around after the election, the one Trump lost in a landslide, saying that Trump was the real winner and Hugo Chavez rigged the election and the voting system was rigged... so often that he was banned from Twitter, kicked off of Fox News, and sued for 1.3 billion dollars is a defamation lawsuit brought by the voting system. Mike Lendel.
RubyAdams: Had a women's group Zoom meeting this morning. Evangelical Christian Church. I was very good except during the Bible study. We were discussing Colossians 3 and the pastor asked if we could think of an example of a person who sets their eyes on worldly things rather than on God. After silence, I couldn't help myself, jumped in with "Trump." I had stayed muted during the entire discussion of reproductive rights... was ready to burst. That sparked a lively discussion. Grin.
RubyAdams: My time on Wire has been so pleasant since I blocked someone. Will just say glass houses, sweetheart. There isn't enough purple glittery eyeshadow in the world to cover up your type of ugly... no one can control their outward appearance but we can all control if we are ugly on the inside and what we project onto others. Laughs and skips away.
RubyAdams: Happy Easter to those who celebrate it. He has risen! (For fellow religious folks) hoppy Easter (for those who go the Easter bunny route)
RubyAdams: I can't stand Ted Cruz. Now he is fucking with the MLB. I'm ready to move to texas just so I can vote against this POS. Toss up: Texas or South Carolina
Sunny B Blessed: Don't move to Texas, you'll be surrounded by really stupid racists who keep voting Ted Cruz back in.
If Ted Cruz (R) was running against Jesus Christ (D), Texans would vote for Cruz, because, for one reason, Jesus was "soft on crime."
RubyAdams: Weighed myself after breakfast today. have lost 35 pounds since they removed my thyroid, got the thyroid replacement medication at the right dose, and have been doing intermittent fasting.
Only 5 pounds left to lose I never thought I could get back to my pre-thyroid cancer weight.

RubyAdams: Thanks everyone.
Easy to treat cancer (surgery and radioactive iodine no chemo or radiation) but it makes you gain weight not lose weight- of course all I heard was "you will be fat" and not "excellent survival rate."
RubyAdams: Today is Good Friday. Blessings to my Christian friends. Everyone else feel free to ignore this post.
RubyAdams: Anyone else on here see people type things on here that make you think, "what the hell are they smoking?" or "how did that idiot even come up with that idea?"
I swear, sometimes I don't even know how to reply to some people one here.
RubyAdams: Did anyone else see Ted Cruz at the Us-Mexico border filming himself like he's making a safari show for the Discovery Channel? Funny stuff.
Best comment I've heard "is this the part where the pack of velociraptors come out of the bushes and attack?"
Does anyone still take this man seriously? He was a refugee to Cancun during his state's winter storm/electricity crisis, routinely lies on the Senate floor, spread lies about the election that led to the domestic terrorism at the US Capitol, now this. All he needs is some orangeface makeup and he too can be a clown.
RubyAdams: My Wire has been acting crazy lately. It doesn't give me some PMs until hours after you send them. Days even. Please don't be upset or think "how rude" if I ignored your PM.
Wire has so many hiccups.

RubyAdams in reply to Dimjim55: No, each state does it differently here. I still haven't gotten an appointment. The only available one I've found was at last Friday at 4:30pm about 45 miles away from my house. This is just stupid.

RubyAdams: Interesting all of the anti-Asian talk and violence.
Just thought I'd share a bit of personal information. One of my aunts (by marriage) is Korean, from South Korea. She married my uncle (who speaks fluent Korean) and moved to America when I was about 5 years old. She's just always been my Aunt Kwi, I never gave it much thought. My three cousins are half Korean and their children are a quarter Korean. For that matter, my adopted sister is South Korean and my niece is half Korean.
Never gave it much though until today when someone complained to me about her son's girlfriend being Chinese. I asked, "and?" was told the Chinese and all Asians are this and that (I won't even type it out). I furled my brow and was asked "what?" Said "I'm trying to decided if now is the right time to tell you I have Asian family members or if I should wait and see where you're going with this particularly offensive display of racism."
What is wrong with people? What is happening to our country? I have to think the racism has always been there but the last President and members of his party just allowed and encouraged it to be put on display. That man still used names like "China Virus" and "Kung Flu." Since he's actually had the disease and watched it run rampant in our country while doing nothing, wouldn't it be more aptly named Trumpitis? He loves seeing his name on shit.

e_malekpour1377: there is some other countries which have nuclear weapons and are not in NPT , but first they have not a lot of nuclear weapons ( israel has more 200 nuclear weapons , no one knows accurate number , ) second , they are under control of russia or usa , for example north korea is one of them , north korea nuclear sites are under russia control , or pakistan , russia controls their nuclear sites again with pakistan government , but israel is free , no one can observe what they are doing in nuclear sites , even no one knows how many nuclear weapons they have accurately
Sunny B Blessed: It certainly is disheartening, that the last president we had encouraged racism and hatred, and all the closet-racists were encouraged to come out of the sewer and act violently on their hatred.
Demonizing entire races of people with propaganda is what led to the Holocaust in Nazi Germany. And back then, the only means of propaganda was newspapers, radio, and other things. That all happened, and that was BEFORE Fox "News" and the internet. I'm pretty scared.
RubyAdams: Hmmm, so I'm wondering, has no one seen Mr. Smith Goes to Washington? That was a real filibuster. Good classic movie, by the way, from 1939.
But that's when a senator had to earn a filibuster by holding the floor. Now just saying you want it counts for earning it. Hmmm, no, absolutely nothing wrong with earning it other than certain senators are too elderly to stand and talk for 23 straight hours. Maybr there's a reason for that Mr. McConnell - like get the hell out of the senate.
Reading the Dr. Suess book would have been an excellent filibuster.
And during his "scorched earth" speech he mentioned lengthy confirmation hearings. He's so feeble that he forgot about helping his party ram through Barrett's confirmation days before a presidential election. Time for him to retire to his old Kentucky home. Just saying
Sunny B Blessed: McConnell doesn't forget anything. He's just a hateful, nasty, evil, lying, conniving, scumbag who will say or do anything to hold on to power. He couldn't care less about his constituents or any people at all except for his corporate sponsors and himself.
RubyAdams: Oh, I know he didn't forget, but he glosses over it and pretends it never happened. If anyone dares remind him, they are not working for unity and destroying our country.
Maybe he'll move to Moscow.

RubyAdams: Church voters meeting on Zoom tonight and I still haven't filed my board report. I always do my work, just a bit last minute. Oh well. Guess I'll file it with the secretary before he has a seizure.
Meanwhile, my new cat Millie has decided that the top of the refrigerator gives her a commanding view of her vast estate. Was looking for her for quite awhile before I noticed her up there.
RubyAdams: I adopted a new yesterday. She's a total sweetheart but doesn't have a name yet. Her name was "Pooh Bear" ... it's cute when written, but say it aloud and it's "poo." I teach preschool. I don't need to hear how my cat is named a "potty word."

EmmEffinPrincess: So. What does she look like? Age estimate (adult, kitty, elder)? Cats are so fickle it could be weeks before she shows her true personality so that won't help much. I tend to go with people-ish names for cats.
