Best book for a first-time read aloud?

2022.01.28 12:46 brokenimage321 Best book for a first-time read aloud?

I've been revisiting my old Terry Pratchett audiobooks, and forgot how much I love his stories. Problem is, I don't really have any other Pratchett fans in my life, and I desperately want to find someone to share my newly reignited passion with.
I've been thinking about spending some time reading to my wife each night in order to help her sleep. She's not a very adventurous reader, so I'll probably start with Harry Potter, but I'd love to subject her to some Pratchett. At the moment, I'm thinking either The Wee Free Men (which, of the limited Pratchett books that I've read, is the most accessible), or Hogfather (which is one of my all-time favorite books, and has insights on children she might appreciate). What book(s) would you recommend for a reader whose only exposure to Discworld is the second-hand exposure from an excitable husband? Which books do you think would work best as a read-aloud?

Flyttade till Stockholm 3 år sen och i kombination med denna pandemi så har det varit omöjligt att träffa några kompisar. Har också fattat att jag är i den värsta ålder för att hitta något att göra med folk i samma ålder... ville bara prata av mig lite..

2022.01.28 12:46 kkerennnn I have no clue where to start this project rip

Hi! So i've recently moved to a new job and I get paid hourly (i'm a student, don't work full time) and at my old job we had a computer system that counted how much I worked every month and at my new job its all done on paper. After calculating how much money I earned, I realized that finding a way to do it on my computer with code would probably be much quicker and less of a headache so i've decided to give myself a fun project to work on.
The only problem is I have NO CLUE where to start.
Im using a mac and pycharm, i have basic knowledge in python and i love googling how to do stuff. If anyone has tips on where to start/how to go about it, I could really benefit from your help, Thanks!

2022.01.28 12:46 RedShirtBrowncoat Looking to freeze some soups. What's a good list of dos and don'ts for it, ingredient-wise?

I recently bought some Souper Cubes so that I can prep a bunch of soup, freeze it, and keep it on hand for a while in case I need a quick meal. Only problem is, I don't know what's good for freezing and what's not. Some sites say that cheese doesn't freeze well, but then I'll find a broccoli cheddar recipe that says it freezes spectacularly. Another site says that dairy doesn't do well, but tomato soup made with heavy cream is A okay. Does anyone have any good guidelines, or recipes for stuff that freezes well?

2022.01.28 12:46 Lord_Zahkrosis Abuse victims / Siblings of abusers/criminals who forgive or still love them are idiots, not victims.

"My brother went down a dark spiral starting at 12. He would throw violent outbursts where he would destroy belongings, tear up the couches to the point they had to be thrown out, punch holes in walls and would point large butcher knifes at my mom when she told him 'no'.
As a teen he was suspended from school for selling drugs to middle schoolers, stole money from my Grandma's retirement funds and sold off my dead Grandfather's prized medals to get himself a car.
As he got older he assaulted my parents to make them give him what he wants, he emotionally manipulated his girlfriend to make her stay and help him with his thug ambitions, and got arrested for trying to rob someone on the street.
No matter how many times he got out of jail, he never learned his lesson. He crashed my dad's truck because it took up room in our driveway for his own car. He learned the cops were onto him for some other crime so he framed me and got me investigated by police for months which costed me my chance at collage and a good steady life.
*insert 20 more horrible things that only a devil from hell would do* "
Oh damn dude, that's absolutely awful. That brother is a demon th-
"-But I still love him. He's my brother, so I just can't hate him. Greg, I hope you're doing ok, wherever you are"
Yeah uh, no. No more sympathy. Having a hellspawn sibling like that, after all they did, after all the crime, pain, and probably permanent loss of major life things, you forgive them, or at the very least, DON'T hate them? Being family or having a 20+ year friendship beforehand does not mean you have to love them. Cut that trash out of your life. Else I can only assume you want to be victimized on purpose for the sympathy gains.
To use myself as an example, my mother did everything from cost my father his saved put-away money that was meant for my collage funds to get into a drunk driving accident to falsely accuse men of child r@pe to almost letting me die because she thought smoking ciggs was more important than getting me to a hospital for a serious, painful problem I had for months that she let get bad. She also was willing to let me and the cat starve during a record snowstorm when we had no food in the fridge and tried to force others willing to donate to not give us food, threatening to take t back to the Food Bank, etc because was grumpy a cheque came in late. Among other things that resulted in my nearly attempting suicide and being diagnosed with PTSD.
All that was my wake-up call. No more with her. Not talking to her, nothing. Nope. I don't need that pain anymore in my life. Yet other people would forgive, not hate, try to reconnect, etc because "she's my mother, I just can't hate her" or some nonsense like that. No, take the devil out of your life and stop trying to forgive their demonic acts.

2022.01.28 12:46 4nbritt During my OTH Rewatch…

I’m in the middle of my 87th OTH rewatch. You know when you watch a show and every single time you notice something new?
It surely was ahead of its time. No other show will ever do it like OTH did. All the music was real.
When Haley left to go on tour, the tour was real. It actually existed. They did a 23-city tour as a cross promotion for the show and the music.
Later on when Mia Catalano (Kate Voegele) is introduced, she signs with Peyton. All music Mia performs is actually her work. When it debuts on the show, it’s debuting to the world for the first time. Not only were they pushing numbers for show viewers, they were doubling down and pushing numbers for music.
In season 6, peyton puts on a USO concert at the military base. This takes place in 2008 and it was real. Kate Voegele, angels and airwaves, bethany joy galeotti and others performed. It was them “giving back”
I guess I’m just realizing now how real the music was. In most shows/movies you see artists perform or sing but it’s just for a scene. It doesn’t go beyond that usually. I’m in awe of this. Just another reason why I love OTH so much. And I wanted to share.

2022.01.28 12:46 Lucky-Number-7966 Not so creative…

Is it just me or do you guys get frustrated with the lack of creativity the twins tend to have with their magic. I’m on book three, and although I’m enjoying the story I get very frustrated when they can’t think their way out of situations or attempt to use their magic creatively rather than with blunt force. At first I thought maybe it was just too hard for them because of all the power they have, but in their internal monologue there’s not even an attempt at shaping their power into like a sword or an arrow. I get doubly frustrated when the heirs start teaching them very “obvious” skills ex: putting air around your mouth to breath underwater. They have all the elements so there’s so much potential there with what they can do or create where as someone with less elements would have to be extremely resourceful to do similar things, similar to the magic system used in the book “The Beginning Before The End”.

2022.01.28 12:46 Old_Painting6813 Fluid intake and urine output

Hi
I'm a 35 y.o male.
I drink around 2 liters of fluid every day. But I pass 2.5 liters! Does it sound normal at all??
I also have a small pomegranate, an apple, a carrot, and a bowl of oatmeal with half a glass of soy milk.
Do all these count as fluid intake? I mean can the excess urine be caused by what I eat during the day? Not just water and fluid?

2022.01.28 12:46 Mak_27 From all these videogame characters, which one do you like as minifigure?

No Nintendo characters, because it's pretty sure The Legend of Zelda, Metroid or Animal Crossing will be released with the sucess of Super Mario sets.
Also no Horizon, due the leak

2022.01.28 12:46 TheHYPO How far in advance of a taping day are contestants told they will be playing on that day?

The recent streaks have got me wondering how far in advance the lineup of contestants are chose by the J! staff.
i.e. I'm wondering how far into a streaker's run they would have to be before the show would be in a position to hypothetically select opponents specifically to face the streaker assuming they kept winning.
I assume Matt's summer break likely means that anyone from his second season was selected by the show knowing that they would be potentially facing Matt, but I'm curious what the timing is like for a one-season streaker like Amy.
Not at all to suggest it has ever happened, but I had a passing curiosity whether the show would be in a position to purposefully select either weaker contestants to further a streaker's run (if longer streakers bring more ratings) or stronger ones to try to create more competitive games (if that is determined to be better for ratings).

2022.01.28 12:46 nowveidn What is your most reread arc from Kingdom?

Mine is surprisingly the West Zhao Invasion arc, but I usually skipped the whole revival thing. I know that some people found that arc to be tedious but somehow whenever I missed Kingdom, I found myself rereading that arc (with the Coalition Invasion Arc being a close second).
