During the first day of his Senate impeachment trial, President Donald Trump tweeted from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, imploring people back in the U.S. to:

"READ THE TRANSCRIPTS!"

It turns out, many people have and, unfortunately for Trump, it doesn't do much to help him.

Most who had read the "transcripts" (actually a summary memoranda) released by the White House knew they were incriminating.



Several people even pointed out the sections in which Trump appears to be pressuring Ukraine into investigating Joe Biden.



Those transcripts are literally the first reason President Trump is being impeached.

It seems unclear whether or not many of Trump's supporters have actually read the transcripts, however.


But, for the President's critics, reading them again serves as a reminder to keep on as we've been doing.



While we're making strange demands of each other, there are a few other things American citizens would love for you to do, Mr. President.

Sometimes, it feels like President Trump is trying to convince us we're insane and he's the only person we can trust.

For once, President Trump and his critics seem to agree: everyone should read the transcripts.

A truly stressful job can destroy your self-esteem and confidence. It's been said that people don't necessarily leave jobs, they leave management.

Indeed, bad management can leave you feeling unmoored and unsupported.

There has been a wider conversation about hostile work environments over the last couple of years now that the COVID-19 pandemic has afforded many people the opportunity to switch careers and/or call it quits with their awful jobs.

No job is worth your mental and physical health.

People shared their stories with us after Redditor yourmaeve asked the online community,

"Redditors who changed careers from a high paying but stressful job to a lower paying but low stress job, was it worth it, why or why not?"

There is so much we don't know about the universe.

So much, in fact, that everything there is to learn about the universe will probably never be discovered.

Mostly because the universe is constantly growing and evolving, leaving us with new things to learn about the universe literally every day.

Constantly filling our minds with uncertainty, sometimes fear, about the otherwise vast unknown.

All of this makes all facts we've discovered about the universe all the more fascinating, whether or not we have even the slightest interest in science.

Romantic relationships have evolved considerably over the course of time.

Today, more and more couples who are otherwise committed to one another, in marriage or in word, have "open" relationships, where they are permitted to see other people on the side.

Also, many people are open about being in polyamorous relationships, where they might be equally committed and loving to more than one person.

Which isn't to say, however, that monogamous relationships are a thing of the past.

As many people continue to commit, body and soul, to one person and one person only.

And should one half of that couple break that commitment, it could be the effective end of that relationship.

The mark of a good piece of fiction is when one feels as if they actually know the characters.

Be it a film, television series or novel, there are some beloved characters we wish were actually our friends in real life, or whom we feel as if we've actually known all our lives.

As a result, when one of these characters dies, we sometimes feel as if we've actually lost a loved one.

Sometimes finding ourselves in a state of literal grieving.
