What do non-adopted people think about people who were adopted? Do they pity them?

Not at all.

My brother-in-law was adopted, as was one of my friends.

They both had families that loved them dearly and provided them every possible advantage.

I guess I don’t understand why would pity someone just because they were adopted. Considering how many people have absolutely hellish childhoods, to see someone who was loved and valued is wonderful.

Thank you to R for the A2A.

What do you do if your boss makes you feel stupid and incompetent? Other employees have expressed similar feelings.

It is a constant battle to do your job or stand up for yourself when a bad boss applies a whip this way. Often she will play favourites, others will also jump on your back merrily and your life will become a hellish drudgery whether you are at work or not. Some employees seem to enjoy freedom of expression. You are feeling watchful and uptight every time boss or associates are around because everything you say and do causes some negative remark. You might think you are in a “cool” workplace that seemed inviting because it attracted people who were expressive in their dress and seemed motivated toward justice issues. You may think it’s just a matter of time and patience until you fit in and enjoy this liberty too. Unfortunately a lack of standards and structure can only result in general dissatisfaction. You will often discover after a time that gender and power roles are in fact rigid, not fluid, and they are roughly and sometimes arbitrarily enforced. The general feeling of malaise this can cause (a lack of standards and boundaries) will make it difficult if not almost impossible to respond to false remarks and targetted bullying. I suspected but just confirmed from the outside that I was harassed, bullied and let go right before my labour day shift (THE shift before my labour day shift) from someone who wanted to stagger days and nights so it would be easier. Didn’t want to do any childcare (we can or don’t have to!) It seems audacious and lesser things have fuelled violent labour action, but she actually managed to create such a shit storm that she did it! Of course when they questioned very small things I did “wrong”?! I told them working nights was a bit of an adjustment and I was transparent about any issues I was having that would be of concern to other staff and my employer. Everything I said was maximized in the worst way possible and I am out of a job.

There are also places of employment that become cult like and you seem lost in a constant stream of jargon, double talk and general shit. You may not even know what your purpose there is. All I can say is that you are not alone.

Can any new countries get founded today?

Define “founded”.

If a region secedes from a country, was a new country born? Or do they consider their pre-independence history a part of their country’s history? Were they “founded” when they became independent? Or were they “founded” at some much earlier date, when their consciousness as a distinct people was developed? Or even before that? Perhaps they were even independent some time in the past?

A country’s “founding” is highly subjective.

And you’re confusing the concept of country with the concept of state.

States come and go and have clear beginnings and endings. Countries, however, are often cultural concepts, whose beginnings are more ambiguous. The Republic of Armenia gained its independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, but the Armenian people have been around for thousands of years, and have been independent in the past. What do you consider the “founding” of Armenia? 1991? Or thousands of years ago? What would you consider the beginning of the USA? When the colonies unified in 1776, gained their independence , and established a republic? Or when the Europeans first arrived in the early 1600s, forever demographically altering the land previously inhabited by Amerindians?

How to find the best humane mouse trap

I purchased a 4 pack mousetrap from Landefensor that was delivered on Friday in perfect condition. We recently lost our cat and the prospect of mice wasn't even on my radar until I opened a drawer to find droppings and two empty chocolate wrappers. We set one with a small pice of cheese and caught a big mouse the first night. We did the same last night and caught a second, smaller one in the same drawer. We think it must be a litter so we will set one again in the same drawer and the remaining three in nearby areas.

They are extremely easy to use and very humane. As the description indicated, the trap isn't set until the mouse is far enough in that it won't hurt its tail.

They seem easy enough to clean. I rinsed them with hot water and I'm soaking them in a bucket with blue dawn and a splash of bleach. There are small crevices so if the soak doesn't suffice, a quick sweep with a pipe cleaner will probably be necessary, but not difficult.

I would recommend setting them overnight and checking them in the morning, and releasing them asap because mice poop A LOT and they stink.

I couldn't stomach the though of using traditional traps and finding dead mice, or the horrific glue traps, which are essentially torture devices. These are great, especially if you know where your unwelcomed house guests like to visit.
