  1. My late BFF David and I used to get multiple beef and cheddars and binge watch 90210. He died in his sleep recently. After fighting HIV successfully for 25 years, he could not find it in him to fight cancer. Some things call for a beef and cheddar with extra Arby’s sauce.

  2. Many, many years lurking... but just a couple days posting, and now I have a hand in a thread title. My life is complete. Lol!

  3. Wanted to add to the cheering up posts. This is my little cherub Dixie. She is three weeks old and we pick her up in another five weeks and I know she will be the light of my daughter’s life. I’m a first time (adult) dog Mum. I am more nervous about getting this dog and messing her up than I am worried about parenting my own kid. The puppy Mum guilt has already set in because I am away from home a minimum of 9 hours a weekday and where as I can send my child to subsidised childcare, it’s not really an option for my dog. I’m worried she won’t bond with us I’m worried she won’t train well.

  4. This is Daisy. I'm a therapist who works with senior adults and Daisy is my therapy dog. Her job is to make everyone's day a little brighter and she never fails to do so!

  6. Oh, I’m so excited to finally share the story and pictures of my girl!! I’ve been waiting for one of these threads to pop up while I’m active. Meet Vrbnik (pronounced like VERB-neek, but do your best to swallow the e in verb and you’ll come close 😉). It’s Croatian, the name of the town nearest to where we found her - or she found us, is perhaps more accurate. She was a full-fledged rescue. While on a camping trip last June, Hubby and I were on a bike ride on a very hot day, and stopped for a moment (in literally the middle of nowhere, I might add) to confirm which way to go next. Sud

  8. Really? I just spent 2 hours listening to the podcast. He and his wife came across as sincere, thoughtful, and very introspective about their life growing up in fundie families. Only about 30 minutes were spent on the guy's relationship with Josh Duggar, and it was very interesting. The couple appear to be in their early 30s, and the husband identifies as autistic. Even if you dont' want to believe the Duggar stuff, it is a fascinating look into fundamentalism from a pretty intelligent couple. The podcast is also pretty funny. If this couple was setting this up to cash in on the Dug

  10. This is just a personal milestone but I was discussing this with my mother yesterday and my mom is a deeply religious woman. She got sucked into a cult when she was 25 years old and didn't leave until she was 53 years old. She is still very much bound by her faith. I mentioned that Josh Duggar had gotten arrested for CP and she interrupted me to say that she's always hated that term because it puts all porn on the same level, when that's not the case. She said she didn't agree with porn at all but at least it's generally consenting adults participating in it. She said CP should really be calle

  11. Can you imagine how awkward this must be for the host family (though I have zero sympathy for the vampire lacount). Especially the women. And who knows how long he’ll be there. JB and Michelle must’ve been scrambling through their phone book to find a friend who has no minor children and is willing to take on their douchebag son. I’ll throw in a pic of kittens that are maybe mine. We moved recently and our new house came with a mama cat and kittens living behind our garage. The plan was to trap the kittens and find them homes and trap the mama and spay and release her and then later

  13. I don't know why everybody thinks this. This being called a "close call" for a case like this is extremely unusual. Presumed innocence is a good thing in the legal system. The length of the hearing and the closeness of the call all point to the strength of the evidence the prosecution has provided. Getting bail/bond is normal because we've decided that it is not right to hold somebody for a crime they haven't been convicted of. It's frustrating here (but only because we feel we know these people better than the magistrate), but it's the right decision for the system overall. Edit:

  15. This is my first ever grand... puppy. 🥰 I Hope I uploaded? downloaded? it right. I am not the most computer-savvy. My oldest and her husband got this little cutie-pie and boy oh boy I forgot how rambunctious puppies are. She is darling- when she is asleep. 🤣

  16. Again, I've said it before, and I'll say it again.... I'm not surprised. Disturbed and angry, yes, but not surprised. By her decisions, Anna has now set her kids up for a life of association with that man. Speaking from experience, as a child of a convicted sex offender, it is a very heavy burden to carry. As for JimBob and Michelle.... There is nothing redeemable in their actions. They cannot claim ignorance or anything at this point. I understand the complications of family relationships, I've lived them, but they are now actively choosing an offender over the very real survivors

  17. Because apparently it fucking needs to be said again: DO NOT POST YOUR SPECULATION ON WHAT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE HAPPENED TO UNDERAGE MINORS. We've said it every damn thread. From here on out, break this rule and you are in the Closet.

  18. Coming out of lurkdom finally caught up on the threads. Thank you to everyone who has contributed thoughtfully and eloquently. I don’t have anything new to add. Josh is a monster and although I didn’t read the more graphic spoilers about the content he downloaded, what I did read was enough to make me hug my toddler and baby tighter for the past few days. Also hoping I didn’t miss out on the pet drift. Here’s my Winston in his wheels for the first time (he’s been paralyzed for about two years) and othercorg is Willow.

  19. I'm so bothered that Jim Bob coerced a couple, exploiting hospitality as church friends, to get the husband to agree to take Josh in while their 22 year old daughter lives/works there and makes her living teaching children piano! I'm incensed. Yet again WOMEN being commanded to put their best interests aside to accommodate this sick pervert sociopath that is Smuggar. It's sick. How dare Jim Bob and Michelle even ASK this of someone. So gross. As for Josh being allowed to see his kids, I'm outraged. After the description of the files he downloaded...absolutely vile this judge allow

  20. I'm sorry but I have to question that leap in judgment-- that because defense attorney represents a reprehensible client that the attorneys are "no doubt without scruples and sleazy." That's not how practicing law works at all. Defense attorneys play a central role in our civil society. Any democracy operates under the rule of law and typically has a constitution that guarantees fundamental rights and freedoms. You can't suspend the fifth amendment for one person and not suspend it for all in our democracy. Thanks for considering another viewpoint.

  24. This just seems in bad taste and really weird. These boys are minors. They need to be left alone and not made into the subject of odd fan fiction, especially concerning something that would be as life altering as you are fantasizing about. Remember, they are in public school and there is a real chance one of their classmates will stumble upon this site at some point. It is bad enough they have Josh as an uncle.

  25. This is my potential fur baby. She was abandoned and is with her foster mom right now. I am unable to meet her until Saturday as I have to work. I have been approved by the rescue, I just have to meet her.

  26. I've been following for days and not saying much. I can't say anything that everyone else hasn't said. I can't recall the last time just the sight of a person's face triggered instant rage like his does. The pet pics are awesome! Here's my sweet girl. She was half starved and desperate for a home when she found us - she literally walked through our back door back in November and found a spot next to my husband on the couch. She's been with us ever since.

  27. Also, I know we all snark on how lazy the Duggars are, but there’s lazy and then there’s “can’t be bothered to use a different password for my CSA/CP downloads account” lazy. I realize this is by no means the biggest reveal here, but holy shit. This idiot used his *bank account password* to download *CSA/CP* and I can’t even.

  33. I literally spent 15 mins typing out a long post, but now it's gone thanks to phone thumb accidentally signing me out Anyway, just responding to @CinnaJenre: infertility and the Duggars. I grew up in a country where the only people who have kids in their 20s are people on long-term welfare* or minimum wage jobs. We were taught to seek fulfilment through our careers and that our 20s were for fun/travel. Everyone from teachers to doctors literally brainwashed us into thinking one of the worst things that could happen to a person was an unplanned pregnancy in their 20s - that it would ruin

  35. I finally caught up on the threads and I'm beyond words. I just hope the Ms get all the love and professional support they need, although this is probably wishful thinking. Big THANK YOU to the mods, the people with knowledge about all the legal stuff and to everybody who posted cute pet pictures. I wouldn't have made it to the end without those.

  36. I'm pretty disturbed by the statement of the wife of the custodial couple who will watch Josh said about their decision to take him in: “My husband has made the decision and I’m here to support that decision.” Their patriarchal abuse really knows no bounds in their culture. It should have been a red flag for the court that this woman clearly has no say over a child molester coming into her home. She is just doing whatever her husband, in collusion with Jim Bob, says.

  38. 100% agree. I kinda got mad seeing the never done drugs are alcohol as reasons he should be released. I've done both but I'm a hell of a lot better for the community than he is.

  39. Can we please stop feeling sorry for people who willingly enable this shit. She could have told her husband no, she could have told the court she wasn't willing to watch him. She yammered on about waiting to pray and preach at him or something. Seriously - if they aren't responsible for their actions than neither is Josh and we should all send them big baskets of muffins in a show of support.

  40. I hope Anna was at the hearing. And all the others going forward. If she's going to "stand by her man" she needs to hear every disgusting detail and not be "shielded" from it. I also hope that Jill tells her sisters and Anna how helpful (real) therapy has been for her and that at least some of them give it a try.

  44. @justoneoftwore: pretrial release: Right, unless you are a low-income person of color who can't afford to pay bail. The system often says "fuck you" in that case. But if you are a white male entitled asshole like Josh Duggar, yup, pretrial release for you. The system is broken.
