These are the 1 star reviews. They're all positive, saying that they gave it 1 star so that people who searched for 1 star reviews would see them

This is a Fallout remake of a children's book.

My parents always skipped that last part when they would read me that story.

This wonderful little book was put out by John Oliver and Jill Twiss with the help of Last Week Tonight.
The episode where they unveiled the book is a gem. Check it out if you want!

EDIT: you can buy it here if you’re interested.

When I first saw this article from, its title was:
> John Oliver's Gay Bunny Book Outsells the Pences'

Here are some other articles about this story:

u/Cheezemansam · 63 pointsr/slatestarcodex

Charlotte Pence wrote a book, Marlon Bundo's Day in the Life of the Vice President, a book aimed at children that is illustrated and told from the perspective of Marlon Bundo, the family's pet bunny rabbit that has been selling quite well based on Amazon's Best Seller's list.

Another book, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents a Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo (written by Jill Twiss) is a similarly styled book meant as a parody of the former, but still ostensibly a children's book (includes tongue in cheek lines indirectly referencing gay marriage). Humorously, it very quickly began to outsell the former book.

On Fox Business, Charlotte Pence and her mother were interviewed about the book. Near the end, she was asked how she felt about John Oliver's parody:

>“I mean, I think you know, imitation is the most sincere form of flattery in a way,” Charlotte said. “But also, in all seriousness, his book is contributing to charities that I think we can all get behind. We have two books giving to charities that are about bunnies so I’m all for it really.”

I felt that this was a refreshingly classy, non-partisan perspective to have.

u/atthegame · 58 pointsr/cursedcomments
u/NHDruj · 53 pointsr/actuallesbians

It's actually the #1 best seller on Amazon at the moment. Which is both hilarious and great, since it has probably earned a great deal of money for the Trevor Project and AIDS United.

u/Pazimov · 35 pointsr/conspiracy
u/wanderer333 · 32 pointsr/Parenting

My first thought reading this was that he was saying men don't kiss ANYONE, not that it was about same-sex kissing. Like, maybe girls/princesses/women/whoever can give kisses but not boys/men. Which obviously is still not true and not a good thing to be saying, but at least it's not quite as bigoted as the other interpretation.

Either way, I agree with your decision not to make a big deal out of it, and just to make it clear that anyone can kiss anyone who is okay with it. You can also reinforce that message with diverse picture books, actually for both the issue of gender stereotypes and same-sex couples -- you might check out this list, this list, and this list for ideas. One of my personal favorites is And Tango Makes Three, a true story about two male penguins raising a chick together :)

u/ChkYrHead · 30 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

If anyone is interested, all proceeds go to The Trevor Project and AIDS United.

I really don't care if people realise I'm going for a pooh. Come on, didn't your parents ever get you that book, Everybody poops as a child?

This anxiety that people might realise that, zomg, you have to excrete waste materials really fucking annoys me cos it's just more people buying into the idea of "GIRLS DON'T FART OR POOP LOL LOL" when actually, we're just as gross as the next person. Putting women up on this pedestal and holding us to a standard which is so extreme that it comes to a point where we can't perform basic bodily functions without getting anxious is such a fucked up thing.

I think that, if they tried to sell it, the author might get in trouble since it's a copy of a picture book.

u/sluttytinkerbells · 15 pointsr/CanadaPolitics

I consider it a very valuable life experience that has shaped every experience I have had with an authority figure for the better.

It occurred in the Vancouver airport the day after the Robert Dziekański was killed by the RCMP in the same airport.

As I was handcuffed and lead to the interrogation room the border agent lifted my arms up putting a lot of pressure on my rotator cuff. I am a pretty active person so like many I have had minor injuries in my shoulders over the years and they're normally fine -- provided that someone isn't pulling at them in odd directions. I stopped walking and told the agent to stop applying the force and explained that I had an old injury there. He barked that he would do no such thing but when we resumed walking he did stop applying the pressure.

That moment was where the power dynamic in that situation changed completely. I realized despite the fact that I was being lead away from public view in cuffs to be stripped that I had far more power in the situation than I had realized. I didn't know about the Robert Dziekański incident at that point but I am pretty sure that the agent complied because the RCMP had just killed a person in the vicinity only a day earlier.

The lesson I learned from that moment was that it is critical that you be calm around law enforcement. You be calm and respectful but you do not let them beat you into dank submission.

Coincidentally I just flew into the country last night. A customs agent barked at me because I stepped a few inches past a line so I stepped back and stared at him during the entire wait. He did not like this so while I was being processed by the other agent suddenly felt the need to move ahead 15 feet so that he could question me again, just for that petty feeling of power.

An abuse of authority against a murder suspect is still an abuse of authority. Most of the time these things aren't done for the right reasons like making someone confess, instead authority figures do these things to build up their fragile egos.

I would love to see a campaign started to send Staff Sgt. Joshua Graham and Cpl. Joaney Paradis a copy of this wonderful children's book Everyone Poops. I'm sure they already know that but I think it would serve as a powerful symbol to remind them what exactly their role in our society is.

Oh I do, and everytime I see her, there's poop questions. I'm probably sitting at Type 3 most days, but the spicy nugs push it to more like Type 6 (Type 7 if there's booze involved). I got her this book, and she seemed quite pleased.

Thanks for the concern though!

Shit. On second thought, somebody page Dr. Freud for a personal consult please.

They have an excellent book about this, I can assure you its a quick read. Whatever you do, I wouldn't let her stay for free. Talk to whoever helped you with the original contract (attorney or agent) about the best way to extend this. But make sure its in writing and in exchange for money

u/Aidinthel · 11 pointsr/mylittlepony

The show itself never explains, but according to this book, Cadance was an orphan pegasus found in the forest and raised by an earth pony couple. She defeated an evil unicorn with her love powers and ended up in the same weird other dimension place that Twilight went when she became a princess, so Celestia brought her to Canterlot and adopted her as a niece.

There's two more - Journey to Chandara and First Flight.

1. A Land Apart From Time

2. The World Beneath

3. Journey to Chandara

4. First Flight

The first two are incredible, the stories are engaging, too. The second two, the stories are OK but Gurney is still an amazing artist.

Maybe Yes, Maybe No (LINK)

by Dan Barker

In today's media-flooded world, there is no way to control all of the information, claims, and enticements that reach young people. The best thing to do is arm them with the sword of critical thinking.

Maybe Yes, Maybe No is a charming introduction to self-confidence and self-reliance. The book's ten-year-old heroine, Andrea, is always asking questions because she knows "you should prove the truth of a strange story before you believe it."

"Check it out. Repeat the experiment. Try to prove it wrong. It has to make sense." writes Barker, as he assures young readers that they are fully capable of figuring out what to believe, and of knowing when there just isn't enough information to decide. "You can do it your own way. If you are a good skeptic you will know how to think for yourself."

Another book is "Me & Dog" by Gene Weingarten.

That's awesome. I mean, I pretty much always wish I was eating tacos, so I get where he's coming from. Also, do you know the book Dragons Love Tacos? Sounds like it might be up your son's alley.

u/OliveBranchMLP · 10 pointsr/MLPLounge

You're an awesome parent for supporting your son's newfound hobby and making sure he can experience it in the cleanest manner possible. Hopefully we'll be able to be of some help.

> how old are most people on pony forums like this one?

The median is around college age, so mostly 21 and around. I'm towards the higher end at 24. Some of the people on this forum lean a little younger, between 16 and 21.

> there is a side of MLP fandom that isn't kid safe at all. Can you tell me: which websites are best avoided

As always, you should be present as much as possible whenever your son decides to browse the internet.

It's gonna be hard to filter, but my first and probably most helpful piece of advice is always to turn Google SafeSearch on for any computer he might use. It'll be on by default, but just make sure the checkbox is checked.

Official places will be your best bet, since your son can see all sorts of cool and curated pony stuff without potentially interacting with anyone dangerous.

Naturally, you can never go wrong with the official website (, which has all sorts of fun games, coloring books, pictures, and videos. Since it's the official website, it's heavily curated by Hasbro staff, so you will be guaranteed to never see questionable content.

Netflix is definitely a safe place; every episode from seasons 1 to 4 is on there, as well as both of the movies. You could even make a dedicated "family time" where everyone watches an episode every night! It also has two documentaries, "A Brony Tale" (starring Applejack/Rainbow Dash's voice actress, Andrea Libman) and "Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony" (starring the creator, the voice of Discord, and the voice of Twilight Sparkle), both of which will do an excellent job of introducing you to the fandom and all the cool stuff the bronies have done.

When it comes to fan content, however...

It will be hard for your son to interact with other My Little Pony fans over the internet, since most internet users are adults and will have fewer filters. I would be cautious allowing him access to sites where other fans congregate.

There are lots of cool videos on YouTube, but some of them might be vulgar or extremely bizarre, and YouTube doesn't do a very good job of hiding that content. I suggest looking up Pony on YouTube with a certain degree of caution... but you will find some really cool stuff there too.

Equestria Daily ( is a great place to find out news regarding the fandom and the show. It does not ever post mature content at all, but its comments sections are frequented by fans. As long as you keep him out of the comments section

Derpibooru ( is a site that shares hundreds of thousands of MLP pictures and art made by fans. It has filters that you can set up so that your son never gets exposed to explicit content, including a TV-Y mode. These filters are on by default, so you can peruse it if you want to look at cool pictures with your son. I'd advise against letting him browse alone, however, since they're easy to turn off.

Fimfiction ( is a site for fans to write and post fanfiction. It has a mature toggle that hides mature content, but unfortunately it's very easy to turn off. It'll best be browsed with parental supervision, or potentially not at all until your son is a teenager (which means he might not even be a fan of the show anymore by then).

If you want to try and keep your son off the internet...

The official comics are fantastic from both a story and art perspective, and they will keep your son (and you and your husband too!) very entertained.

There are also chapter books that will help your son learn to read. Many are offered at various reading levels, so you can gradually wean your son on bigger and more complex books over time.

There's also an official My Little Pony game for Android, iPhone/iPod/iPad, and Windows Phone, and all sorts of official audiobooks that your son can read along with as well. Since they offer no social features, there's no possible way for your son to interact with anyone dangerous.

Hopefully that's a good enough summary! If I can think of anything else, I'll let you know! Good luck, and have fun ponying-out with your son!

u/lemonadeandlavender · 10 pointsr/Parenting

I read "Oh Crap! Potty Training". The author's recommendation is to not start until they are at least 20months and can sing their ABCs. My kid was speech delayed at that age and definitely couldn't sing her ABCs (and still can't, at 2.5yrs), but we dove in right at 20m and she trained super easily compared to most of my friends' kids, even training for naps and nights. It took us like 2w to get to where I felt like I could leave the house without accidents. And she learned to say "pee pee" when she had to use the bathroom, so that was a plus.

My second born will be 20m in 1 week and I can't decide if I want to dive in and go through 2 weeks of potty training accidents to get the sweetness of never needing diapers again. It's a tough call to make!

Anyways, we used the little separate training potty at first, so that she could put herself on her potty and go pee, and then eventually moved up to setting her on the toilet with an insert which was necessary for using the restroom during outings. By the time I potty trained her, she was also sleeping in a big kid bed already which was super helpful.. I would sit her little potty on a waterproof mat on her floor and if she woke up from her nap, she could quickly sit herself on her potty before I could even get in there. She rarely had accidents in bed.

We read a lot of books about toilets... "Everybody Poops", "Potty Time", and "Once Upon a Potty". Some other books I liked were "Diapers are Not Forever", "Potty", and "Let's Go Potty, Elmo!".

u/zugzwang_03 · 9 pointsr/AskWomen

You should check out this book, And Tango Makes Three, which tells the adorably true story of a gay penguin couple at NYC Zoo which wanted a baby together. It's so cute!

u/1_point_21_gigawatts · 9 pointsr/todayilearned

If I were taking the oath of office I'd want to be sworn in on Everyone Poops.

u/onetoodeep · 9 pointsr/atheism

I disagree. Religious indoctrination of kids is pretty messed up and it’s important to not only their lives but society as a whole to educate them about reality as early as possible.

OP, you are definitely taking the right approach in my mind. Not really sure what is age appropriate for an eight year old tbh, but Me & Dog seems to fit what you are looking for:

u/SmellsLikeDogBuns · 8 pointsr/college

I know it sounds silly, but I got my body on a rhythm where I had to poop everyday around 10 am, when I knew everyone was out of the building. If I had to go at another time, I searched out an empty bathroom if possible because I find it uncomfortable and awkward.

You lose a lot of privacy in college, it just happens when there are a bunch of people living all together. You'll have to adapt, and be comfortable with your body and its natural functions. Have you read Everyone Poops?

u/opcow · 8 pointsr/daddit

Buy him this. It's probably more appropriate for a 10 year-old than 2 girls 1 cup.

u/theshicksinator · 8 pointsr/gaybros

u/Wetbung · 7 pointsr/Atlanta
u/mx_marvelous · 7 pointsr/ftm

I have many! Here are a few:

Gender Failure by Rae Spoon and Ivan Coyote This is the book version of the authors' live show that toured in 2012. They both are nonbinary, and the stories they tell are about that.

Second Son by Ryan Sallans Ryan has been a role model of mine for a long time, so I was really excited to get his book. It's a pretty basic transition memoir, but he has a really great voice.

Gender Outlaw by Kate Bornstein This one is a classic, and one I wish I had read much sooner! It's a transition memoir, but she also has some awesome discussions about gender in general too. Also, check out The Next Generation which is a collection of the work of trans* writers and artists.

Stone Butch Blues by Leslie Feinberg I think everyone should read this. It's a memoir/fiction sort of thing, and gender and transition are shown to be much more complex than in other transition memoirs. This one is quite old though, so maybe your library already has it?

Lastly, I will suggest Red: A Crayon's Story, which is basically the sweetest story about a blue crayon that was given a red wrapper by mistake.

u/corporeal-entity · 7 pointsr/AskReddit

I never thought of it that way. It's as if the boy wanted to hear the Three Little Pigs, and the grandfather told him this version instead.

u/RigilNebula · 6 pointsr/asktransgender

Can you just follow your child's lead on this one? If he wants to be a he, call him he and by what name he chooses. If he later changes this again, you can always follow that? Let him have age appropriate say in what he wears or what toys he's playing with. As he gets older of course the choices can become bigger (as happens with all kids), but by asking questions and checking in you're letting him lead what happens, for himself. And it's also a good way to check in about where he's at along the way, without having to ask directly.

But also, I don't know that anyone needs to make a big deal out of it at this age? It doesn't have to be "My son has come out as trans" so much as "my child has asked to be called he and ThisName, and we appreciate friends/family doing so".

Reading is great, so I'm glad you were able to find a book for yourselves (and there are more). If you want books to read with him, there are a couple. Backwards Day by Bear Bergman, and Red, A Crayon's Story by Michael Hall, are two off the top of my head (but no doubt there are more).

The Tenth Good Thing About Barney is a picture book where a family cat is buried next to a young tree and they plant flower seeds next to the tree. The child is encouraged to make a list of 10 good things about his cat in remembrance. The tenth good thing is that the cat will now be helping the flowers grow. The idea of planting a tree reminded me of the book. While they won't be burying the teacher in a school garden, a tenth good thing is the tree is being planted because of the teacher.

I bought this book in anticipation of having the "god" discussion with my daughter in the future.

I certainly wouldn't give your son arguments or reasoning against the existence of god; if he tries to use those with an adult they will confuse him with apologetics.

I would start by explaining that, although we know much about the world, there are still questions to which we don't have the answers. Sometimes things about the world are hard to understand, and people look for a reason behind things that happen for no reason at all.

Religions and gods are things that people use make sense of the world, and find reasons for things happening. It can be scary to live in an unfair world where bad things can happen to you even if you don't deserve it. Some people believe in a god; a powerful being that cares about people, protects them, helps them, and gives them rules to live by. To them, it makes the world less scary and gives them a purpose in life. Not everybody thinks that a god exists, and not everybody agrees what that god would be like. You will hear many different stories from people who believe in gods, and everybody is going to think they are right. When you listen to these stories, you should decide for yourself whether or not you want to believe it. However, don't listen to the bad people who try to scare and threaten you into believing their story.

I can share my experience, though I'm not sure if it will reinforce your position or not.

I, an emotionally stunted individual because of massive abuse suffered as a child, was in the habit of laying my self-esteem and approval at the feet of my wife. If she didn't like me, then I felt like shit. If she rejected me, I felt like shit.

If I was feeling like shit, then I acted like shit, which led her to find me repellent, therefore she would continue rejecting me. Which made me feel like shit...

Kind of like If you Give a Mouse a Cookie, only psychotic.

After far too long, and a potentially unrecoverable marital bed, I finally snapped out of it, and realized that the only person who was responsible for my self-esteem was me. And as it turns out, I kind of like myself.

So, now I'm taking time for myself: recovering neglected friendships, getting into the best shape of my life, learning new hobbies, and practicing old ones. Problem is, these things are all independent of her, and the gulf between us grows day by day.

I'm not sure how to best explain it, but I came across a cute book the other day which is easily interpreted as an analogy for somebody being transgender. It's called Red: A Crayon's Story by Michael Hall. I haven't looked into if it's actually about being transgender, but it could be of use to you?

Otherwise, if you don't get the help you want here, maybe you'd have some luck asking somewhere like /r/transgender or something?

Red: A Crayon's Story

>A blue crayon mistakenly labeled as "red" suffers an identity crisis in this picture book by the New York Times–bestselling creator of My Heart Is Like a Zoo and It's an Orange Aardvark! Funny, insightful, and colorful, Red: A Crayon's Story, by Michael Hall, is about being true to your inner self and following your own path despite obstacles that may come your way. Red will appeal to fans of Lois Ehlert, Eric Carle, and The Day the Crayons Quit, and makes a great gift for readers of any age!

>Red has a bright red label, but he is, in fact, blue. His teacher tries to help him be red (let's draw strawberries!), his mother tries to help him be red by sending him out on a playdate with a yellow classmate (go draw a nice orange!), and the scissors try to help him be red by snipping his label so that he has room to breathe. But Red is miserable. He just can't be red, no matter how hard he tries! Finally, a brand-new friend offers a brand-new perspective, and Red discovers what readers have known all along. He's blue! This funny, heartwarming, colorful picture book about finding the courage to be true to your inner self can be read on multiple levels, and it offers something for everyone.

I guess it depends on whether or not you take this book as canon material. It has some backstory on Cadance, explaining that she was previously a pegasus. So, while we still haven't seen an explicit earth pony to alicorn transformation, being a magic-wielding unicorn is apparently not required.

The book also specifically describes alicorns as being a combination of all three pony types.

> But this doesn't explain why the infinite cycle of universes exists rather than not--and that's what we're looking to do.

  1. There does not need to be a reason.

  2. Even if you think there does need to be a reason, adding a god into the equation, exactly analogous to the above argument, does not actually solve the problem at all--it only pushes it one step back (why a god rather than not?), while simultaneously adding extra complexity and reducing elegance for no benefit.

    > increased explanatory power ... Likewise, the theist is proposing that divine attributes give us a way of explaining why the universe is the particular way it is.

    You explained what caused one thing, but then opened up a new question about what caused the other thing you just hypothesized.

    X, and (Why X vs not-X ?)

    is now

    Y --> X, and (Why Y vs not-Y ?)

    You have just as many question marks / things still to explain as you started with, so you've gotten nowhere. Yet you've also added complexity.

Not that they're my kids, but my siblings just told their kids what's up. They just accepted it (2 and 3 year olds) or asked a few questions and then accepted it (6 year old). Pretty sure the infant didn't get a taking to.

I did send each of my siblings a copy of Red: A Crayon's Story, which I'm pretty sure wasn't necessary, but at least the younger kids enjoyed the story.

u/CicadaLife · 3 pointsr/TransParents

My daughter was also 2 when I started transitioning. At the time, my wife had similar issues with me being called mommy, and we wanted there to be as little confusion as possible. So, I went with "Allie", which is just short for my name, Alison. it worked well because it had a similar cadence to daddy, so it was just a matter of saying "oh do you mean Allie? " and similar things like that. It took a little while, but it did work after a few months. There was a weird period when she was 3 that she thought daddy was a different person, and that was tough for me to deal with, but as she got a little older she understood.


I would very much recommend this book, Red. It's about a red crayon who could only draw blue, no matter how hard he tried to change. In the end he realizes that he was actually blue and just had the wrong label.

u/MondayToFriday · 3 pointsr/asktransgender

I used Red: A Crayon's Story when explaining myself to my kids. It's great for younger children, but an 8-year-old should still find it enjoyable. Plot spoiler: a blue crayon comes mislabelled as red, and is encouraged by everyone to try to draw red things, with laughable results. Finally discovers that drawing blue things actually works, despite the label.

It may be an option to make this a biological and medical issue.

There are more and more studies showing its a biological condition, due to development before birth.

Brochure by a large national health service explaining with pictures and pointing to studies as example :

Its nobodys fault and just a way people are.

It is not flagged as mental any more in international standards for a few years now, for very good reasons. It was flagged like this also recently by the UN. Its a recognized medical condition and transition as people feel necessary is the recognized medical solution.

Religion etc. have nothing to do with it. Often its cis people who only see their point of view presuming things that have nothing to do with reality. There usually are few if any references so it comes down to : I don't like it so it must be bad.

Transition would not be for them but for trans people. People need to understand there are others out there who feel opposite to how they feel. Its called trans for a reason.

Some people compare it to epilepsy where especially religious people also presumed all kinds of things. Its now accepted its biological.

A few things from [here](
) might help cis people understand trans people in case . The link is by a trans person and many cis people said it is the best description they have read.

(TW suicide mention. And not all trans people show this level of dysphoria but it may be stressful in any case.)

Please stay away from self harm in any case. It leads to nowhere.

And this may help show that important is how people feel and not outer body parts, and that identity and orientation etc. are different things :

Concerning children some people explain like a can : they are the gender they identify with inside (can) and are about to change the outside ( labels etc).

I know of someone who tried to explain to a kid. Someone else in the room just said : they regenerated ( a Dr. Who concept). The child looked in awe. If the concept is known, it may be easy to explain.

As book you may like Red: A Crayon's Story.

And in general a few things from this post might help you too. There are also hints concerning looking for support there.

PFLAG for example might know someone people may accept as authorities in case, like accepting ministers.

PING! The magic duck!
Using deft allegory, the authors have provided an insightful and intuitive explanation of one of Unix's most venerable networking utilities. Even more stunning is that they were clearly working with a very early beta of the program, as their book first appeared in 1933, years (decades!) before the operating system and network infrastructure were finalized.

The book describes networking in terms even a child could understand, choosing to anthropomorphize the underlying packet structure. The ping packet is described as a duck, who, with other packets (more ducks), spends a certain period of time on the host machine (the wise-eyed boat). At the same time each day (I suspect this is scheduled under cron), the little packets (ducks) exit the host (boat) by way of a bridge (a bridge). From the bridge, the packets travel onto the internet (here embodied by the Yangtze River).

The title character -- er, packet, is called Ping. Ping meanders around the river before being received by another host (another boat). He spends a brief time on the other boat, but eventually returns to his original host machine (the wise-eyed boat) somewhat the worse for wear.

If you need a good, high-level overview of the ping utility, this is the book. I can't recommend it for most managers, as the technical aspects may be too overwhelming and the basic concepts too daunting.

Problems With This Book

As good as it is, The Story About Ping is not without its faults. There is no index, and though the ping(8) man pages cover the command line options well enough, some review of them seems to be in order. Likewise, in a book solely about Ping, I would have expected a more detailed overview of the ICMP packet structure.

But even with these problems, The Story About Ping has earned a place on my bookshelf, right between Stevens' Advanced Programming in the Unix Environment, and my dog-eared copy of Dante's seminal work on MS Windows, Inferno. Who can read that passage on the Windows API ("Obscure, profound it was, and nebulous, So that by fixing on its depths my sight -- Nothing whatever I discerned therein."), without shaking their head with deep understanding. But I digress.

So sorry to hear you little guy isn't doing well :( It's been nearly 4 years to the day since I lost my little girl, Sky, at 16 years old (I had had her since she was a baby). She had the same sort of issues - lost weight, stopped being able to fly, couldn't hold herself up on her perch. It was so hard seeing her struggle. I still miss her everyday but I took a lot of solace in the fact that she, like all animals, didn't feel bad or sorry for herself. She just slept a lot and one early morning she passed peacefully, snuggled into my father's chest (her favorite person).

In my family we have always read The Tenth Good Thing About Barney when our pets pass, and it always brings me a little bit of solace. I hope in the next few days you spend with Bird you can remember all of the good things about him and keep that with you when harder times come <3

u/elizinthemorning · 3 pointsr/atheism

It sounds like you did handle it. Unless he keeps bringing up the concept of heaven, I don't think there's any need for you to do so, either. He may keep feeling sad about the fish, and you can comfort him by saying something like, "It's okay to miss Finny. He was a nice fish, wasn't he? You were so good at taking care of him. He always looked happy."

You might also check out the book The Tenth Good Thing About Barney, which talks about the life-death-decay cycle. The boy in the book discovers that the tenth thing for list of good things about his deceased cat is that "Barney is in the ground and he's helping grow flowers. You know... that's a pretty nice job for a cat."

u/blokaycupid · 3 pointsr/books

Yay! Congratulations. I love children's books unabashedly. I'll limit myself to the 0-5ish age range, as you have some time for the rest.

First books:

  • Goodnight Moon is pretty much recognized as one of the greatest children's books of all times.
  • Black on White is great for very early infants. Did you know babies are color blind? They'll stare at this for a while, but outgrow its simplicity fairly quickly.

    Next, for narrative and fun!

  • All of Sandra Boynton's books are great, but I'm partial to But Not the Hippopotamus
  • Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs is so much fun.
  • Don't let the pigeon drive the bus is great for when he learns to say "NO!" Actually, just check out Mo Willems at the library.
  • I want my hat back is super enjoyable.

    Going into the children's section at the bookstore/library can be intimidating-- Dora and Elmo and Barney assault you at every turn, but there are some real gems in there. Look at Caldecott winners for glorious artwork and storytelling.

    Finally, try reading a book out loud to yourself. If it's taking forever or if you're getting bored, it's probably not worth trying to read it to a kid. I once got a three-year-old Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, which is very text heavy. Poor choice.

I think the vampire that most thoroughly effected the way that I approach all subsequent vampire fiction, as well as vampires themselves, is Bunnicula.

If you've never had the pleasure, this was a series of three books (one of which had my favorite title ever -- The Celery Stalks At Midnight) that feature a mysterious pet bunny that rises in the night to suck the juice from the living (vegetables).

I am actually being 100% serious here. I really, really loved that series, and it introduced me to vampires in a way that was very playful, yet at the same time brought in a knowledge of the mythos.

My second choice would Dracula: Dead and Loving It, because I love Mel Brooks terribly, and even just thinking about that staking scene makes me laugh.

u/NohoTwoPointOh · 2 pointsr/SingleDads

Much of it comes from Puritanical roots. Perhaps things are different now, but when I was young, Judeo-Christian households carried a certain amount of shame associated with sex, sexual organs, and discussions about them.

More shame and discomfort also comes from society trying to paint every man as some kind of molester. This may even be the biggest factor. This is nothing more than internalized misandry that men must overcome for the sake of their daughters. But internalized misandry it is. There is also external misandry. When shopping pre-K schools for my daughter, I asked if there were any male teachers (as I prefer a balance). I was told by a female teacher that it would be considered a "safety risk" by many parents. I wanted to tell her that sexual abuse convictions of female educators have tripled in the past decade. But I noped right out of there and found a better school. That said, this is what dads face on a daily basis.

As men, it is very easy for us to internalize such blatant misandry. My example is simply one of many that we face each week. Luckily, I did not have the same amount of religious programming as my peers. I just had to face society's anti-male pressures. I can see it being more difficult for my peers who were raised in parochial schools and deeply religious homes.

It takes a mindset to say "Fuck em. This is my daughter and I am her father. We can talk about our bodies. We should talk about our bodies. There is nothing wrong, shameful or dirty about it. "

I was the first to comfortably broach the subject with my daughter. I taught her to wipe and why there is an order of operations. She would happly sing the "Down in the front, up in the back" song that I taught her. Ask her why? "So I don't get Mr. Germ and Mrs. Bacteria in my buh-gina..." Fucking hilarious! And that's exactly what the topic needs, right? A bit of child-like levity.

What has also helped me is to use books from cultures that are not ashamed of the body.

The "where did I come from" question was addressed at 2-3 years old with this one. There are some other Japanese books we used, but I cannot find them online.

Body functions


When they get older this one is more appropriate.

I have to admit, the more you read and talk with them about the subject, the easier it gets. I also got kids' anatomy books to go over the various systems. Using clinical terms helps remove discomfort as does talking about genitals in terms of our pets ("Sada the dog has testicles because he is a boy dog. Men and boys also have testicles just like Sada".)

Regarding inappropriate touching, I find that fathers are probably better at explaining boundaries as we are usually the ones who are more adept at setting clear and consistent boundaries for our children through fatherly discipline. Once we were comfortable discussing the body, it was easy to discuss inappropriate touches. We checked this book out from the library. Good concept, mediocre execution. This one was much better and enjoyable.

These books (and subsequent discussions) helped us set a baseline and standard in the younger years builds trust that moves on to the adolescent and pre-teen years. One of the men in our Dad's Group has a teenage daughter. He was the one who taught her daughter different ways of dealing with her period (cup vs pad vs tampon). He has a wonderful bond with his daughter that was set quite early. That guy has been a great influence on all and has helped many of us remove the shame and stigma around approaching the female body.

A few random factors.

- I grew up in a multi-generational house that had at least 2 girls and women at any one time.

- I have also had plenty of girlfriends and serious (cohabitating) relationships. One girlfriend had ovarian cysts, one girlfriend had very unusually rough 7-day periods. Of course, we discussed these things together.

- I probably found my parents' copy of "The Joy of Sex" at a bit of an early age, too.

- I was the first class in my state to have sex-ed in school. This is when I was living in America. It was very controversial, as we started as 5th graders. Many parents protested this (again, American Puritan roots).

All of these things demystified female genitals and has helped with my comfort with discussions around the female body.

A bit of a ramble. But it breaks my heart to see fathers allow terrible people to drive a wedge between them and successful parental relationships with their daughters. I am skeptical of university studies, as most seek to paint men is a negative light. Perhaps this study will be no different. But maybe this post might help some dads with their discussions and relationships with daughters.

Well, I think a bear eating a small dagger is a bit of a stretch. Maybe the wand, but perhaps wand parts. I don't think bears are quite dumb enough to eat giant twigs without a second thought. Actually, I quite like the idea of wand parts. Makes just a little bit more sense. I mean, the problem with the idea of "well it ate this" is that "Everyone Poops", if you know what I mean. Although like I said, it's more of an issue with the sheer principle of a bear not noticing a dagger in its daily meal.

I love I Want My Hat Back and its sequel, This Is Not My Hat. Because they are very slyly hilarious.

u/PrinceShoutoku · 2 pointsr/paydaytheheist

No, the original is a book called, "I want my Hat back."

u/stargazer666 · 2 pointsr/EliteDangerous
u/NotUnusualYet · 2 pointsr/MadokaMagica

It's a Madoka-themed set of artwork for a children's picture book (and modern classic) by the same title. The narration is almost straight from the book itself.


I should clarify: the voice acting is entirely original, and there are a fair number of minor changes. The major change is the addition of the "Morning Rescue" man, who apparently is a joke related to a commercial from when Madoka Magica first aired.

u/andersce · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I devoured the Magic Treehouse series when I was younger. I thought it was so great that they went to all these cool places (and they were very easy to read chapter books, so I flew through them!) :)

Edit: I ran a Reading Buddies program at the local library and a couple of our younger readers really liked them because the writing style is simple, but interesting. There are new words, but nothing terribly difficult and since the main characters are the same throughout, it's easy to follow :)

In terms of other books, I thought all of these were great:

  1. Dr Seuss
  2. Shel Silverstein
  3. Alexander
  4. Amelia Bedelia
  5. Frog and Toad
  6. Henry and Mudge
  7. Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus

    Those were all pretty popular with my kids (and with me)! :)
u/onlyindarkness · 2 pointsr/CPTSD

Speaking of a bus, there's a children's book called Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus that my therapist and I reference regarding my dissociated young parts (pigeons) dictating my life (driving the bus).

u/GhostNightgown · 2 pointsr/Portland

Some ideas for OP:

Plus - the boardgame that about the pigeon driving the bus. So cute, and great for social skills.

u/ItIsShrek · 2 pointsr/NPR

It was pretty good. I went to the Sketchfest recording last year, with Alex Borstein, Brad Bird, and Dan Savage, and I have to say, because all of them were better in front of a camera (so to speak), it was definitely not as funny this year, but overall the experience was great. They have a routine, I guess.

Ophira comes out, and does maybe 10-20 minutes of stand-up (both times mostly jokes about San Francisco). Jonathan comes out and plays a song (last year First of May (Fucking Outside), this year it was IKEA). Then Art comes out. Then they give the usual audience warnings (don't shout answers, clap when the Make Noise signs flash), and then they record some sample applause (they asked for "medium and then Holy Shit applause," to put in as a transition between segments, then the actual recording began.)

The normal guests were good, everything went normally there, not much you'd miss on the edited version.

The first VIP was Steve Sansweet, a former Lucasfilm employee who's the founder and owner of a collection of Star Wars memorabilia with, he claims, over 350,000 items ( He was moderately entertaining in an old-guy way, and he brought a rare Jar-Jar Binks lollipop which you eat by opening Jar-Jar’s mouth and sucking on the tongue… And he tried it (Both Ophira and Jonathan refused)

The next guy was probably the funniest. That was Phil Johnston, a screenwriter who wrote Cedar Rapids, Wreck-it-Ralph, and Zootopia (Disney’s new movie). He told stories about having to get his cat gender-reassignment surgery to save it from a medical condition, and how in 7th grade he would buy porn magazines from high schoolers and then resell them. (I’m guessing they’ll release his uncensored interview).

Then the third VIP was Mo Willems (he’s been on the show before; he wrote the Pigeon books. He played a game with Phil (and they re-recorded Ophira announcing the actual score as 8/10 to a modified 7/8), then they did the Ask Me One More, and the show ended.

TL;DR - It was really fun, and I’ll definitely go next year, or if they come back again before then.

I think everyone can relate to your 10 year old.

I find wonder and beauty in that, everything is cycles. We are part of something (many things) bigger than us. From the water cycle to the microbiome. We just don't understand the web of these relationships. I find some meaning in trying.

Can you design a mostly closed loop fish tank or terrarium? Ferment or bake things to eat?
We don't understand the life in a square inch of soil.

This book is great,but maybe too young for her:

Physicist funeral:

There is only ever the meaning we create. Something is only sacred if you make it so.

I've been trying to come up with my own "sacred" traditions.

I see real value in different states of mind. I think they are even easier to achieve with honesty instead of dogma; large groups, drums, etc.

All hail Discordia

All life as we know it so far is based on one operating system and consciousness is a poorly rendered hallucination of reality.

Try Me & Dog by Gene Weingarten

u/RedditRimpy2 · 2 pointsr/atheism

Regading the first part of the quote about dogs thinking that their owner is a god, Washington Post columnist Gene Weingarten (two time Pulitzer winner) wrote a children's book with that concept as its theme. It's called "Me & Dog". It's been described as the first atheist children's book, just released a few months ago. (Weingarten is an outspoken atheist.) It's pretty good. I got it for my 2 year old son and I would recommend it to other atheist parents.

Me & Dog

Our oldest is 6. We are starting to get into that territory, too. She actually came home from school back in December and said she wanted to be Jewish like her friend... so Christmas could last 10 days face palm.

Me & Dog

Annabelle & Aiden: The Story of Life

u/Saoirse_Says · 2 pointsr/lgbt

Well there's this brand new book from the folks at Last Week Tonight. Its release coincided with that of a children's book about Mike Pence's pet rabbit. This book, while being a legit children's book, acts as a sort of protest against Pence's bigotry. It tells a story about Pence's bunny marrying another bunny in defiance of a curmudgeonly stinkbug. They're both male rabbits. And the proceeds for Last Week Tonight are going to The Trevor Foundation and AIDS United.

Otherwise... Call Me By Your Name is a big seller at the moment. Dunno if you've seen the movie or not.

Otherwise... Hm... I don't read a lot of fiction, to be honest... Jeez... Sorry I'll let you know if I think of anything. :p

u/floating_vibes · 2 pointsr/gaybros

I would highly suggest Marlon Bundo, which is John Oliver's book protesting Mike Pence's stance on same-sex marriage. My boyfriend has a copy and it's extremely cute, and the proceeds go to great causes.

u/enforce1 · 2 pointsr/sysadmin

I'm going to piggyback this post by highlighting a few things that an overhaul should encompass, instead of just the venting above.

  • Get things done. Above all else, fix issues fast, as fast as possible. Never put it off.
  • Don't let people make you do their jobs for them. Set reasonable expectations, because if you give a mouse a cookie...
  • Communication and CYA. Quickly and efficiently record notes. This goes along with GTD.
  • Use a good ticket system. I've had a lot of luck with RT
  • Push the boundaries of whats acceptable at your institution. If the HR people take 4 weeks to fill out a form, finance takes 6 weeks to put your direct deposit in, don't let that be the speed marker. No issues more than 2 days old. No projects left undocumented.

    Long story short, you have the power to make yourself look VERY good. Its going to involve micromanagement and establishing a helpdesk culture. Make 0 tickets your goal. Every time 0 tickets is reached, give them a small reward. Make 0 tickets a mantra.

u/quoteunquoteold · 2 pointsr/asktransgender

the only thing that I can say is: I'd see a therapist who is well versed in these matters (I have no clinical opinion as to whether your kid is trans, or 'gender expressive'. Not only to support your child but to support you.

There are some good children's picture books that deal with these issues gently (I have two five year olds and I fully transitioned about a year ago)

Haven't gotten a chance to read it myself, but if you're a real big fan of Cadance (judging by your username, I assume that you are), it sounds like you need to get ahold of Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell, in which Cadance tells Twilight the story of her foalhood and how she ascended. AFAIK it's the biggest chunk of mostly-canon Cadance background we have.

Last night was hectic. Due to some unfortunate customer mishaps, we ended up running around like crazy late into the night trying to fix things. Just barely squeaked by. Hopefully it goes better today. On the positive side, my new mouse arrived as well as the first pony mini-novel. Looking forward to reading that.

Decided to start working on my entry for the MLSG project before work. I've never used my tablet on *nix before, but I finally was able to fix the settings so the cursor wasn't flying around everywhere. Drawing ponies is harder than I thought it would be and this may take forever to finish. But I must, for scien... art!

u/DaylightDarkle · 2 pointsr/MLPLounge
u/CryptidGrimnoir · 2 pointsr/suggestmeabook

I'd recommend the works of Eric Carle

Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? is a classic, with all the amazing animals.

Can't go wrong with The Very Hungry Caterpillar either.

A House for Hermit Crab will always be my favorite. A hermit crab dislikes his shell for being too plain, and seeks to decorate it with all sorts of undersea life.

u/LeifCarrotson · 2 pointsr/daddit

You may have ruined it by introducing your kid to the version with the button (and without removing the batteries first), but it is popular and commonly available in a version that does not have that button.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

What the normal version does have is a feature where the pages have a hole in each of the fruits, and where the pages grow in width as the quantity progresses, succeeded by a two-page spread showing the climactic peak of gluttony. And no buttons.

u/itshissong1 · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Yeah, I second the book idea. Not totally unique but I think three to five books for kids that you loved when you were a child or that your child loves are great. That's what I always go with and that's what we used to do when I would go shopping with my mom. My faves that aren't super obvious (i.e. not "Good Night Moon") are Jamberry, Jesse Bear What Will You Wear (that's my name, so, I loved it, obviously), Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (huge hit for me and later for my sis, which would make sense if you know the plot), Snow Day, and Happy Birthday Moon.

If you want to go absolute classics, these are some of my faves: The Very Hungry Caterpillar, In the Night Kitchen, The Giving Tree, and Harold and the Purple Crayon (Probably my favorite children's book of all time).

Hope that helps!

I second the library suggestion- they will have so many resources available to you, usually including story times specifically for this age group! It’s a great way to learn practices you can bring home.

I would check out Jbrary - this blog is run by two children’s librarians and they have TONS of resources and book suggestions. They also have a YouTube channel with lots of songs, rhymes and finger plays to work in with literacy development.

For 1-year olds you should look for board books- sturdy cardboard books that your child will easily be able to handle with you.

Some book suggestions:

Where is Green Sheep? By Mem Fox

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

Dog’s Colorful Day by Emma Dodd

Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell

There are TONS of books that would be great for this age- those are just some of my favorites. Others you might consider:

-Anything by Donald Crews

-“Spot” books by Eric Hill

-Pete the Cat by James Dean/Eric Litwin (there are board books available specifically for young readers)

-“The Bear” books by Karma Wilson- these aren’t usually available as board books but they are great rhyming stories

-“Maisy” series by Lucy Cousins

I apologize for any formatting issues- posting from mobile. Good luck!

I don't think you understand. I have no problem with the story. My problem is with r/news sourcing an article from the web site of an automotive company. That's what is generally called a 'conflict of interest.'

Newspapers don't let their subjects write their own articles for this reason. The NYT doesn't pay Chris Christie to write about the bridge scandal. Why? because Chris Christie isn't a neutral party. If Tesla motors is the subject of a news story, we don't let them write an article and call it news. It's not news. It's public relations.

u/jesusmohammed · 1 pointr/indonesia

Phew just got from a long business trip, opened my laptop, saw the red icon, and ow yeah, I remembered I was arguing with this psychotic bitch on the internet.

Anyway, okay let's continue.

> What is the solution then? You're being awfully cryptic and I suspect that's because you don't actually know.

I don't know if you actually read my comment or actually comprehend English, but I did give a solution, so stop being so fucking obtuse.

Here I'll write it again, the solution is to be ASSERTIVE if somebody harassed you or abused in any way stop being a pussy and stand up for yourself, I gave you two extreme examples; you can just say no, or you can quit and start your own company.

(God, I doubt that you'll understand this) Historically, women were regarded as equal when they had started proven that they were independent, that they have their own strength, that their existence does matter.


Jane Goodall, she fought for the well-being of Chimpanzee in a dilapidated country in Tanzania, where women were treated far worse than Indonesia or any other part of the world.

She is a beautiful woman and was harassed not just for her looks but her intellectual as well, yet she was undeterred and independent.

When the poachers, massacred the animals under her sanctuary, she didn't cry or posted an angry letter or ranted about sexism, these poachers were notoriously vile and wouldn't think twice in murdering their opponent, but she went straight to poachers and began lambasting them in front of their faces, this is why people respected her.

Malala Yousafzai, she was shot in the head, when the Taliban entered her bus, he asked "Which one of you is Malala? Speak up, otherwise, I will shoot you all" and she bravely stood up, but did that stop her? Did she complain about sexism? No! She never stops struggling, and despite everything that she did, there are still cynics that criticized her.

Marsinah, a female Indonesia activist, was raped by an iron pole, yes, they actually stick a pole inside her vagina, because she was defending the workers' right.

Bill Burr was interviewed once and asked was the reason why there aren't as many female comedians out there because we're living in an unjust society, where women were considered as subspecies?

His answer, fuck that, everybody eats shits out here, do you think male comedians became successful because they had a penis hanging out of their crotch instead of a vagina?

Colored people went through the same struggle, and yet we still see white supremacist, extreme alt-right, it's a perpetual state of tribulations. If you wanted to be valued you must act even though the entire planet is against you, and this is true for everybody, male or female.

> This is just name-calling. Personal attack. More name calling. Lol more personal attack. Lol wow sexist much? This is just more name calling and baseless personal attack, only directed to a whole gender Lol exactly it wasn't an argument, just more name calling and personal attack.

You're just mad that you couldn't come up with a cogent riposte.

You were the one who initiated the condescending comment, and then when I descended to your level you demanded that I will argue with you respectfully? Fuck no!

The first "Wut" comment, I knew you were just a psychotic and moronic cunt.

> Context. It's important. Try and pay attention to it one of these days.

AGAIN FUCKING READ MY COMMENT, I even quoted her original comment so she knows which context I was replying to.

> Not that it's any of your business but since you brought it up, I actually run a business making 5 USD figures a month.

Hah! doubt it, somebody who scours the internet just to argue about trivial sexism would be making 5 USD a month, unless if your dad helps you, or if you're a prostitute, do you suck old man's dick so you can buy a bag, cunt? Did your mom teach you how to do it? hahaha.

Hey, could you lick my sphincter? I'll trade you a candy for it.

> So you're saying attractiveness matters in more professions that flight attendant

Nope, I didn't say that and learn English, your grammar gave me cancer.

> So you're saying attractiveness should increase how well someone does her job. Then it should show up on the excel sheets, yes? They should close more deals etc, so then why not just judge that using more measurable metrics? There are stupid attractive people, too. How do you know they perform better if you don't measure their performance?

Again context, read her original post, read my comments and connect the dots.

> Here's how to run a successful business: measure, collect data, interpret data, make improvements based on the data, profit, repeat. It's 2017. The people who know how to properly use data make bank.

Context. It's important. Try and pay attention to it one of these days. The boss was trying to gain new business and based on the data, or his research he found out that his clients like boobs, and there's a probability for him to gain that said business if he were to please their client.

> There's a reason why business students spend a ton of time learning about performance metrics in class.

Most successful businessmen became great because they were persistent, committed, disciplined, knows how to manipulate the market, and actually never gotten any degree.

Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, unanimously said that degree is not important, they all have faced self-doubts in their lives.

Steve Jobs, never follow what the market dictates, he had created his own innovation based on his belief and intuition. Read his book, ow, well, learn English first, because the words are complicated.

Here start with this book,

> So because there are extreme feminists fighting stupid battles in Australia, that means all the things feminism strives for everywhere else, including in Indonesia, is ridiculous? If not, I don't see how that article is relevant to this thread.

No, I didn't say that. I even said that women in Indonesia were historically more respected than the western counterpart, I was mocking her statement.

AGAIN, OP problem was something that could've had been solved if she were more assertive, douchebags are everywhere, although her boss might not actually one, and she is just a large baby.

Her insecurities made her irrational and started blaming others aspects such as feminism, instead of facing her own fear, which I think is ridiculous, just like the extreme feminism in Australia or everywhere, their thinking was based on female insecurities rather than rational thinking.

TL;DR; Again stop being a cunt, stop eating MSG, go back to elementary school again, when somebody make a comment don't reply them with a condescending comment like you know everything, learn proper English or just use Bahasa because I can speak that too, and come back to me when .. mmm... maybe 50 years from now? once you learned what diction is, segue, cognitive dissonance, logical fallacies, and real history about women's suffrage, ow, maybe just basic vocabularies, okay bitch?

I thought this may help my fellow new parenters out there. If you're anything like me, you scoured the internet checking off every "must-have" baby items list before your LO was born, but I still ended up having Amazon deliver things about every other day for the first couple months.

As a disclaimer, I'm not saying these are MUST HAVE items. I just went through my Amazon purchases and I'm writing down some things that I purchased in those 3 AM wee hour Amazon shopping sprees.

Here's a compilation of everything that I felt I missed in my preparation for my baby girl:

  • An electric nail file. I was terrified to cut her nails myself. This is a safe and easy alternative.
  • A Swaddle UP. This allows her hands to be by her face, which she preferred her first month or two.
  • Friedababy MediFrida. My baby had a rough go of reflux and was diagnosed with Ranitidine pretty quickly. This helped us give her doses with no fuss!

  • Comfy shorts for me. I was unprepared for my post C-Section body and clothing options.

  • Gripe Water / Colic Drops. My reflux baby had some rouuuuugh nights. These helped? Maybe? Witching hour SUCKS.
  • A bigger swaddle that ZIPS. Screw trying to unvelcro my child out of her swaddle quietly at 2 AM.
  • A mirror to help with tummy time. She still hates tummy time. But she does like looking at herself for a while. So I count that as a win.
  • MORE. BOOKS. you don't have enough. I promise. After the 15th time of reading "The Rainbow Fish" you'll appreciate a change of pace. I personally recommend, "The Wonky Donkey."
  • Trial and error pacis. Your kid will have a preference and you'll just have to figure out which. Once you figure it out, buy extras.

  • Bibs / ABSORBENT Burp Cloths. Again... You don't have enough. And the little tiny rags that Gerber tries to sell at Target will not do the trick. Get some THICK in your burp cloth regimen.


    I hope this helps! Let me know if there's anything you would add to the list.

u/Somedamnguy · 1 pointr/biology

Let's have a look at your question:

You first ask the % absorption of foods. Then, with no answer or data, you assume it is very low. Then, you assume this is due to poor nutrition without running a control to see what the absorption is with a healthy diet. You then blame "pop-culture" without any evidence. Do you understand why this is a terrible way to go about anything?

The first step of the scientific method is observation, not wild conjecture. You need to make an observation before you ask a question.

As to your actual question: People poop for several reasons, it is completely natural and everyone poops. Part of the reason is due to non water-soluble products of metabolite decomposition ie. stercobilin, as well as indigestible starches that form the structure of plants.

You claim that people excrete more than they consume: They do not, else we would all be dead within 2 weeks.

You claim excretion is a physical ailment caused by pop-culture: It is not, everyone poops, we have fossilized dinosaur poop. We're the dinosaurs victims of pop-culture?

No one is going to care about video of the door of a toilet stall, no matter what kind of sounds accompany it.

u/Crustyoldbastard · 1 pointr/writing

Depending on the target audience, nonsensical rhymes may be appropriate. Books for very young children are not vehicles for conveying some soul-shattering insight into the human condition, but are more for laying down the fundamentals upon which literacy will be built.
Check out Max's Ride, where the protagonist goes down a hill; Max (of titular notability) and his sister both exclaim "STOP!" at the much anticipated denouement. Not much in the way of plot, but it works on the ideas of printed text (follow with your finger as you read to the little ones) and basic verbs.
Other basic ideas can be conveyed to very young children using simplistic verbiage and a limited lexicon-- frequently these involve body functions such as sneezing, going potty, and pooping. Many others deal with counting, colors, or shapes.

You can see the increasing complexity of the story line as the target age increases. My two year old daughters lose focus on more complex books such as most Berenstain Bears stories even now, but we are heading in that direction.

Still, with all that being said, there are certainly varying degrees of quality in children's books.

Even if this is indeed a truly revolting mass of half-assed effluvium that would offend every last fiber of your being, treat it (as others have recommended) as a resume builder.

Buy him this book. It's a kids book, but it's really good. It actually helps you cope with the loss of a pet.

u/midwintermoons · 1 pointr/Wicca

I think this kind of thing probably happens to all kids in some way at some point. If he's especially sensitive then it's not really surprising to me that this is weighing on him so heavily. Have you thought of getting him some books on the subject? I gave some to my nephew when his grandmother died because my sister-in-law said he had a lot of questions about where she had gone.

One of them was The Tenth Good Thing About Barney which is about a little boy who loses his cat. They bury him under a tree near the garden, and the "tenth good thing" is that Barney is there helping the flowers grow. Another one I gave him was Badger's Parting Gifts. Badger dies and all his friends are sad, but then they start recalling all their memories of him, and all the things he taught them to do, and conclude that he is still with them in that way. One that I didn't end up buying but may be of interest to you is Lifetimes. There are some negative reviews saying that it doesn't get spiritual enough and therefore isn't comforting, but it would be a good way to show how life and death is simply a part of existence.

u/tectonicus · 1 pointr/Parenting

u/uncletravellingmatt · 1 pointr/atheism

>I am actually working on a story about death! It is titled, "Baby Death and the Family Business." The message is that death is actually a good thing, despite being tragic, because it is what makes life fragile.

Kids love teleological explanations like that. Although teleology being so appealing is what makes it easy to make kids religious, because even natural things seem to be designed for a purpose to them.

A kid's book can also put death into a context of nature, as in the famous children's book The Tenth Good Thing About Barney where the 10th good thing they can think of about their cat after it's dead and buried is that now it is helping the garden grow. That's one that I will buy for my daughter when she's old enough to appreciate it.

u/bunnylover726 · 1 pointr/JUSTNOMIL

For your daughter, if you want to "fight" the heteronormativity and cisnormativity that she'll be exposed to, you can slip a couple story books on the shelf. Children aren't born prejudiced- they need to be molded into that by the people around them and by society. Heteronormativity means assuming everyone is straight (so think of how in every disney movie the princess always winds up with a prince, etc.) Casually reading a story book and making it just "not a big deal" will enforce in your daughter's head that we LGBT people are, well, not a big deal.

This one will be coming out in June and is about a trans teddy bear.

"And Tango Makes Three" is a famous story about two real life penguins.

"It's Okay to Be Different" talks about all sorts of differences.

Dr. Seuss's story about the "Sneetches" talks about differences and is a classic that is applicable to all sorts of prejudice.

And "The Different Dragon" has a main character with two moms.

I hope that helps- you sound like a great parent who wants your child to be accepting. Best to plant the seed now, while she's young, rather than waiting until she's older. Maybe if you plant the seed, she'll call out grandma for being "mean", which would be pretty satisfying, right?

Edit: if I had been read a story as a kid where it was ok for two women to fall in love, I probably wouldn't have repressed my bisexuality for over a decade. It's the subconscious/internalized/pervasive cultural stuff that really messes with our heads, and reading her picture books with characters of different colors, sexual orientations, etc. will help plant a seed to make her truly an accepting person deep down. Best of luck with your mother in law, by the way.

There's fun curriculum here from the folks at Penguin Science, including a fun "Did You Know" page. My favorite fact from there is that an Adélie penguin waddles at a rate of 2 km/h!

Activity: Lounging about and making weird sounds to my son. Laughing when he tries to mimic said sounds back to me.

Movie: Ew, such a tough one, have so many favorites here. Um...well, let's say Big Trouble in Little China. One of those movies that I'll always stop everything to watch it.

Book: Again, super tough choice for me. I'm going to have to go with Cormac McCarthy's, The Road. Super chilling book that's actually about nothing much at all, yet I could not put it down any of the times I read it. Speaking of which, I really need to get another copy, ex ended up with mine and...yeah. Also was a huge fan of the Dark Tower series, well, until King was hit by the car, then everything just took on this weird turn and it lost some of the magic in it for me. Still good, just not as good as the ones before.

Comic Book: Another tough choice, so I'll limit it to series that have run their course, though Saga is just sooooo good, and Locke & Key is almost at the end. Nah, I'll have to go with either Preacher or maybe Y: The Last Man. Though to be fair I read Preacher quite a few years ago so maybe it won't hold up like it used to, did have some pretty weird bits that just seemed to be there to drag things out. Y was fantastic, really neat and realistic look at a world after an apocalypse of sorts.
Oh, shoot. Johnny the Homicidal Maniac. That's a good one. Yeah, I'll go with that one. It was what got me into comics, like, well, beyond just what Marvel or DC had to offer. Showed me that there was a whole world of artists and studios out there that I just didn't know about. Plus it really fit my messed up sense of humor. Yeah, we'll go with JTHM for favorite comic.

As for a quick blurb about me, well, I'm of Irish descent, which would likely explain my love for all things Potato which, not that I think about it, makes me wish I had some right now. Man, some of those loaded, or maybe bacon chipotle instant potatoes would be so boss right now. Damn, why did I not pick any of those up at the store the other night? I mean, I was there, I was literally right there beside them in the aisle picking up some things on the shelf right next to them. Man, I know they were instant and all, but they were still so good. I mean, they weren't nearly as good as the homemade mashed potatoes that my granny used to make, but still. Speaking of which, man, I really miss her cooking. I really just miss her in general. Eff cancer.

Oh...yeah, I also tend to ramble off topic sometimes. Probably help if I didn't end up typing everything I was thinking out as some sort of free flow type, but...yeah, there you have it. I mean, editing would likely help a great deal as well. Be dead simple to go back and delete things really, but then we have the hassle of figuring out which bits, and how to string the other bits together to make sense without those bits, and then we quickly have something written out that wasn't what I actually said but something of mine taken and made into something that wasn't really me. If that makes sense.

My usual gift at baby showers is a copy of Mary Engelbreit's Nursery Tales - Nursery rhymes and fairy tales (Mary Engelbreit has a collection of those too) are something kids end up only being sporadically introduced to, will work well for bedtime stories as the kids get older, and never go out of style. I'll sometimes also go to the Half Price Books near me and see what other fairy tale collections I can find, but many of them have weird illustrations or the text gets a bit rambly for younger kids and I'm generally pretty happy with Mary Engelbreit's.

If you want to go in a different direction, dragons are pretty once-upon-a-time-y, and there are a ton of great dragon picture books out there - The Knight and the Dragon by Tomie De Paola, Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin, Saint George and the Dragon by Margaret Hodges, Dav Pilkey's Dragon Tales, Again! by Emily Gravett, Puff the Magic Dragon - lots of options :)

> God is pseudoscience

God is nonscientific. I don't know where you get the idea that god is pseudoscience, but the reality is that god has little or nothing to do with science at all.

EDIT: actually, a little aside here. If you claim god is pseudoscientific as a classification, then you must also necessarily accept that science can't prove god wrong because such "proof" would inherently be pseudoscientific. This is in reference to what you said earlier, "Science is proof God does not exist".

Unless you mean "using god as an explanatory agent is pseudoscience" in the sense of lack of falsifiability, in which case you're only partially correct. You would be more correct if science were solely about physics or chemistry or biology, where falsification is doable, but science also includes fields such as history and language, which would likewise fall into the pit of pseudoscience if you were to incorrectly apply the standards from the Natural Sciences to the other fields of Academia.

Also a text regarding falsifiability in forensic science and the legal system:

> The bible and its stories are just metaphorical and should not be taken literally including the God element

No, I didn't say that. You've misread "the opening stories in genesis" as "the whole bible".

> IF adam and eve are just metaphors that did not exist, then there is no original sin, no need for sacrifice, no need for Jesus, no crucifixion and no Resurrection. Paul said without Resurrection, our faith is in vain.

I completely disagree. "original sin" is a conceptualization of why humans sin, but even if it were shown to be false, this doesn't negate the fact that we do sin (kind of like showing that there was no "Original Poop" wouldn't invalidate the fact that we all still poop).

The "need" for sacrifice is twofold: 1) there is no "need" so much as a desire from God, 2) the "need" is established in the Law of Moses rather than in the story of adam and eve.

Though really, we could disconnect Jesus from the previous stuff if we really wanted to. It's just that he isn't. He came as a fulfilling of the promise(s) YHWH made previously. But the covenant of Jesus could have been entirely independant because he was a mortal who created a covenant with YHWH by fulfilling some obligations, which were that he was to preach the message of God and then die on the cross as a blood sacrifice for the forgiveness of the sins of the world (which Paul explains in more detail as having to do with Jesus' spirit going to the Real Temple In Heaven and making his sacrifice there, which is why it is a Perfect Sacrifice rather than the imperfect sacrifices that were in the law of moses. And before you ask about blood in heaven; two-fold sacrifice. Blood sacrifice to fulfill the law of moses as was required, then continued on to the real part of the sacrifice with divine trappings). Jesus was then resurrected as proof that God has power over life and death (which DUH, he should have those powers if he created us in the first place) and as proof that Jesus was linked to God and wasn't just doing all this on his own (unless Jesus himself had the power over life and death, which would have caused a radically different form of christianity if people held that to be true). So "the resurrection was" (if you believe in it, and I do), and our faith is not in vain.

Yeah, it added in some crystal towers that didn't exist in the book to shield civilization from the big bad carnivores, obviously to fail for an action-packed final act.

Also, in regard to the Ten Commandments-esque stone tablet with the mysterious broken-off final rule (except for the first letter), the show decided for that to be revealed as "Find the light" or some shit like that, thus giving the heroes an idea for how to save the day. In the book, the guy showing the tablet to the main characters jokes about the missing final rule being "don't pee in the bath", and that's all there was to it from what I recall.

Aw fuck, you can get the Dinotopia book hardcover for twelve dollars.

John Oliver wrote a book about the US VP's gay bunny. It's actually kinda cute.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo (Better Bundo Book, LGBT Children's Book)

Your wife might be able to help with the kids if her brain doesn't melt.

Favorite book I found when I was in second grade, Dinotopia. I think everyone should read it, and the three others that followed.

I dunno if this is really a childrens book, but Dinotopia was my favorite book ever. The ones after were just as fun. I seem to remember not being able to read them at first, but I just loved looking at the drawings.

It's been pegged at #1 on since it was released. Please note that sales estimates here are woefully underrepresented due to the methodology (not what the site was built for).

Don't cut yourself short, man. Maybe try easier things, like this. Or maybe this.

If they remade Mario into that, it would give me the same twisted feeling as this book did:

It stands to reason that they would. Everyone poops

Of course, reason doesn't exactly apply to zombies.

And Tango Makes Three. Penguins, not people, but still gay.

I thought this was a joke. Turns out it's for real:

What's the world coming to? Not what you expect. The fact that only one person wrote this and selling it on amazon while everyone is hating it means the world is still very much sane.

I highly recommend the children's book based on this, called And Tango Makes Three.

Literally everyone does it
Meanwhile, masturbation is taught to be a shameful practice. That is wrong and the only way to change how it's viewed is to talk about it. Nothing gets solved by ignoring uncomfortable subjects.

Best tongue-in-cheek review I've seen in years. Now go here and read John E. Fracisco's review.

u/popname · -6 pointsr/politics

The Tea Party was civilized enough to provide trash cans for their garbage and portable toilets for their sewage. Were these liberals entirely unaware that such infrastructure was needed, or completely unwilling to take responsibility for it?

Maybe the book Everyone Poops needs to be made required reading in all urban school districts.

Asking for a key isn't "discussing their bathroom usage". It's asking for a key.

But there's a great book on this very subject, maybe OP and his ilk should look into it.
