OK, before you start to write "those" comments, go through these posts, maybe it will help you to recognise your biases.

50 and finally got my Masters... Super stoked I am... by TheJonnieP in pics

I graduate tomorrow with the same masters! Congratulations to you, sir! Edit: Thank you for all your kind words and thanks for the award!

There's a title too. If someone finding joy triggers you so hard, maybe log off for a while.

Left my abusive relationship. Got to have my first peaceful breakfast in 4 years. by xfatalerror in pics

[–]sregor0280 -7 points-6 points  (0 children)

The pic has meaning to the person who posted it. Not sure of the whole backstory but to others who can relate, this pic has great meaning as well.

Clearly you don't like it when people better themselves and expect them always to provide you with interesting compositions of color and perspective.

Understand the world doesn't revolve around you. This sub, as part of that same world that doesn't revolve around you, also it doesn't care what you think.

Also, it isnt pity that people upvote this picture from. It's empathy. A key trait you, along with other psychopaths and serial killers, seem to lack.

I am getting my masters in education right now. I'm a 2nd year teacher at a public school in my early 30s. Getting my masters is absolutely worth it as it will allow me to make far more money. Going into year 18 with a masters +30 I will be at over 80k/y. With a bachelor's going into year 18 I would be at around 52k/y.

On the door of local liquor store by dr_kilowatt in pics

They get mad at people wearing masks because it brings to attention that they may be doing something wrong. I equate it to my neighbor who is an alcoholic. Anytime he sees me outside, regardless of the time, he will offer me a beer. If I'm drinking a beer he offers to me at 9 in the morning, then his drinking at 9 in the morning isn't an issue in his mind.

What an odd, damp cat.
