I was blown away by the rationality of your post; I wish I could thumbs it up 100 times. For some reason, when it comes to Margaret, a lot gets passed off as fact without the necessary evidence. The gaps get filled in with speculation that's filtered through heavy bias and the whole thing gets presented as if it were gospel. It is like what I said elsewhere, the site name: pretty ugly little liar. When it comes to exposing liars it's important to be honest about what information you have, and what information you don't, unless you want to end up a liar yourself.
Margaret is the one who gave out the public info originally though! Doesn't mean she is homeless/penniless now. We don't know the extent of her Korean language skill. Plus Seoul is huge, has plenty of foreigners that might speak one of her languages. I think at one point she said she was taking classes to learn the language, would be easy to befriend other students. The point is that we don't know. What lifestyle? The traveling or? Bragging? The vast majority of what she posts is her just walking around town taking pictures of things that interest her, it's a really generic instagram page really. Yeah she travels, but she travels in the cheapest possible ways. She said it herself before, something to the effect of not being able to trust her in the same way again. This is like, old school last year stuff. Yeah they fought over the channel, but Venus was never broke or in any real financial difficulty. To be truly slanderous you have to have some credibility and Margaret never had any. Her statements against Venus have done infinitely more damage to her own reputation. How can you call that 'super manipulative'? Have you never got a guilt trip from a parent or guardian in your life before? If not have you at least seen it on TV or in movies? I mean surely you can see that she's upset Venus is sick, can't do anything about it and is having a classic reaction. She's frustrated, and expresses it in her own way. What she actually says is far from ideal, but that's what happens. Mothers say crap like that all the time.
Of course. Seems like she is, depending on what you mean by qualifications (Thai massage school, etc.). I think it's a leap to consider her a prostitute as we don't have any evidence of this. I think she has, may have even worked as one at some point. Is stalking supposed to take a lot of time? Is it stalking that she reads Venus' instagram, and watches her videos? She hasn't been to Tokyo in what, a year? What makes you think she doesn't have a home? Or a job? Or friends? Does she need a partner? Is she the only person her age without a 'nest egg'? What evidence do you have that she is 'living on handouts from her mother'? I know there was some conjecture about her receiving some money from her mother, but that's a far cry from living on handouts from her. When you turn 42, make sure to review your pension plans. Also if you do, make sure to talk about it on the internet so people know you are doing so. No idea, she's fairly unpredictable in that regard. Her Korean visa? She's been there for well over 90 days, so she must have some kind of extended visa. Even if she were forced to leave Korea, she's not the least bit unaccustomed to country hopping. Nope. She doesn't want her 'back'. If I had to guess, I'd say that she wants her to pay the storage fees, take down the videos that talk about the drama between them, and perhaps communicate with her semi-regularly in a manner in which she approves, either in quality or quantity. None of those are likely, but the last one could be happening and we wouldn't know it. I've never considered her a narcissist, although I understand why someone might think so. She definitely has some troubling personality traits, but she doesn't really fit narcissism to me. Narcissists tend to have a much better feel for their public image which can be especially insidious because anyone dealing with them superficially likely won't see anything out of the ordinary, and be happy to take their side when they appear to have been wronged. With Margaret it's the opposite, most people almost immediately find her odd and aloof at best, at worst, a lunatic.
Would be better to get a proper artist to do it, might be able to get the sock into a burqa in a convincing way as well in that case. I mean it's ms paint + some smudging in ancient version of paint shop pro. Only reason I posted it is because Mira lowered the bar on photo work down to where I felt that even I could contribute :-P
I think she has regular contact with her mother whom she speaks highly of. She doesn't get along with her father, and personally I think he is an asshat. I don't think her going back home is really a possibility, nor would Margaret want to. I don't think she gets along with her sister Susan (who blocked Margaret and everyone associated with her she could find on instagram before any of us even knew she had an account), but much to my surprise when I brought her up a while back Margaret seemed uncharacteristically forgiving towards her, not wanting to say anything bad. No idea about the rest of the family. My hypothesis is that Margaret thinks she's doing fine, the only problems in her life from her perspective are financial issues and her grudge against Venus.
This 100%. He goes on and on over a simple idea: that the practical realities and history of an ideology's implementation should hold more weight than its theoretical merits. Like you mentioned, this is simply over Mira's head. She's yet to get a grip on self-awareness, much less the subtleties of political science. He does say though that the argument she is making is not unique, which is true, so you could see it as not simply a reply to her but to the argument itself. I guess one could argue that say a Marxist utopia, or a theocracy of one's favorite religion have only failed to achieve their utopian goals due to implementation issues, but then you have to ask, how many times do you need to fail before it becomes simply illogical not to try something else? Or even, how much success do other systems need to amass to prove themselves?
That was a long time ago. They had/have storage all over Europe and in Japan. Margaret got the Japan storage sometime last year. I don't know if she changed its location in Japan or managed to get everything back to Korea. As for the EU storage she'd been consolidating them apparently, and recently she had a generosity.com to pay the fee on one in the Netherlands. It didn't get much money.
Yes, you are correct as it was mistakenly taken from the Danish language version of the page. I will correct my post. I was thinking that Venus actually had to learn across three different scripts, starting out with Latin script used with Swiss-German and English, then Korean which uses Hangul, and then to Japanese with its hiragana/katakana/kanji.
To add to Caeleigh's answer, it looks like less of a jumbled mess if said language uses the same script (letters/alphabet) or close to the same script. I am a native English speaker, and even though I've studied Russian before it still looks a bit more cryptic at first glance than say, Swedish does. Some examples: Cyrillic script (Used in Russian and various other languages, example in Russian): Может ли машина заменить человека? Ответ на этот вопрос давно уже знают людоеды. Arabic script (Reads from right to left, used by many middle eastern languages, example in Arabic): أدرس اللغة العربية منذ شهر Latin script (English, German, Swedish, and a zillion others, example in Icelandic): Hlutverk mennta- og menningarmálaráðuneytis er að stuðla að öflugu menningarlífi og mennta- og vísindastarfsemi til að auka lífsgæði fólks í landinu. Naturally there are some that are really strange if you've never seen them, Burmese, Georgian and Hindi come to mind. Here is Georgian: ლეონარდო და ვინჩის არც ერთ ნახატში არ არის ასეთი სივრცის სიღრმე, როგორც „მონა ლიზაში“ Burmese: မြန်မာနိုင်ငံ ပညာရေးစနစ်သည် မြန်မာရိုးရာပညာရေးစနစ်မှသည် မြန်မာ့ဆိုရှယ်လစ် လမ်းစဉ် ပညာရေးစနစ်အထိ အပြောင်းအလဲ အမျိုးမျိုးဖြင့် ပြုပြင် အကောင်အထည်ဖော်ခဲ့ကြသည်။ Hindi: मोनालिसा विश्व प्रसिद्ध इटली के महान कलाकार लियनार्डो दि विंची की वह अमर कलाकृति है जिसे विंची ने सन् 1503 से 1507 के मध्य पेंट किया इस चित्र को बनाने में लियनार्डो को चार वर्ष लगे, I'm sure you've seen Japanese, Chinese, and Korean before. So you can imagine to someone only familiar with a language that uses an entirely different script, English would look incredibly bizarre. It's like you're sure it's supposed to be writing, but it could just be random letters and you wouldn't know the difference.
