Absolutely not. They are doing their job regarding illegal immigration. As with pretty much anything else, dont break the law. Do you think jails should be abolished, since they tear families apart keeping in criminals who knowingly and intentionally break the law?? This HAS to be a troll question…
Unless you are a prime target burglars normally are scooping homes and even if they could they skip the ones with even minimal security. Answering the question a light indeed helps to make you less of a target but not many burglars are scared that easily, also I would recommend dogs, even if the could… Continue reading Hopefully former robbers and burglars of Reddit, what are some things people do that actually protect them? Does leaving a light on really help?
Whenever I go out with my husband and we need some kind of service, if the salesperson or employee helping us is a man, he will almost always defers to my husband even when we’ve made it clear that I’m the one they need to deal with.

Shit, I’ll bite. Vanish, go do therapy. Come back in a year, be transparent about his mental health, explain what was going on, explain the work he’s done to get it under control, and make an actual, legitimate, full apology for everything he said and did while out of his mind. Back it up with… Continue reading How could Kanye make it better?
They spend hours at the same station chatting up with their friends and trying to hit on girls. Bro, I’m trying to get my sets done and you are hogging the only fucking machine in the gym that I need to use to complete my push day, get the fuck out.
All the same thing. Every girl, everywhere, likes the same presents. They all share one mind, you know. They are a mysterious and enigmatic species.
Not likely. In my experience it’s some of the worst emotional pain. Betrayal. If it’s happened to you, you’d know how awful it feels and you’d never want anyone to experience that. If you’re unhappy end the relationship. Please do not cheat. It will kill your self esteem, self worth and self respect and lose… Continue reading how likely are people who got cheated on, will do the cheating on their next relationship?
The devil went down to geogia song – charlie daniels Beezelboss – tenacious d I seem to have vague memories of other instances such as this but i cant remember!

so… basically: “Would you rather be Ryu or Zangief?” Ryu.
A belt-fed machine gun. Joking aside, it’s really about doing what you want, be it for personal advancement or the good of your community. Like owning a belt-fed machine gun.
I’m not talking about border disputes or colonial oppression but just fun, random feuds between seemingly unrelated countries. Ghana hating Uruguay due to Surarez’s handball knocking them out of the last world cup is what inspired this post.
I would say that Andor is pretty up there, but I didn’t finish it so I don’t know. If we are talking about shows I did force myself to finish, that Minority Report show was just….holy shit was that boring.
No comedy, no humor, no jokes, just taken completely seriously
Jeffrey Epstien. Hear me out. Everyones theories is that he didn’t kill himself (He was murdered to keep him quiet and not reveal the names and details of other guilty celebrities in a please bargain). But my theory is that he is actually alive and well somewhere. He was rich enough, and had all the… Continue reading What celebrity do you actually believe faked their death?
I was in a small bookstore, a lady came in looking for a book. Staff said they had it, but nobody could find it, it was mis-shelved. It became a game, the whole store started looking.

He was the… Continue reading What is a strange coincidence you have experienced that you believe is more than just random or chance?
Find plenty of female actresses attractive will mention Katie McGrath, Michelle Monaghan, Nicole Kidman, Robin Tunney
I hate it when there’s something playing in one speaker for the whole song. For example, if the guitar was only in the left channel, that’s really annoying to me. It’s alright if it goes over there for a little bit, but for the whole song?
No, if anything it means lithium becomes the new gold and we hollow the ground out for that instead of oil. Due to demand for the materials, the cars will always be prohibitively expensive. The additional demand on the energy grid will drive energy costs up. Much like with renewables, the “carbon cost” of building… Continue reading Do you think electric car is the best solution for a “planet safety” future? Why?
Christmas dinner with my father. My mother had lied to me all my life up until that point. She had persuaded me that he was a monster. My siblings and I went hungry the entire time because her top priority was always to buy weed. I honestly thought the Christmas dinner gathering was just a… Continue reading What is the best thing you ever got for Christmas?
Well I knew I would grow up eventually, but I certainly was in no rush to grow up. Everyone who I knew who was an adult was miserable, tired, sad, aggravated, and constantly stressed out. So I knew adulting would suck. And so far, it has.
Wake up. Pour coffee in mug. Drink. My process begins the night before, and ends with setting the auto-timer. I will NOT stand waiting for my coffee first thing in the morning like a peasant.
To a great extent, vacations around this time of year are fun and swell. Many people travel to visit family and friends, or to take advantage of the great weather. However, there can be some stressful moments associated with travel, such as dealing with bad weather or crowds.
Remind yourself that if you’re fixating on something, eventually you will stop fixating on it. Just the simple reminder that this too shall pass, it rings true for every episodic unhappiness in my experience.
Eliminate all weapons, solve any problems through agreements and cooperation, remove racial discrimination and hunger
i once got told by my uncle “its like doing badly on a test, you’re upset when you get the results, and maybe even for a few weeks after, but then you realise that crying over a bad test result isn’t changing anything, so instead you put your energy into doing well on the next… Continue reading How do you tell a teenager that heart brake is temporary?
Being possessive/over protective, in the beginning of a relationship you think it’s cute and later it’s too late, they’ve isolated you from your friends and family, rip
Honestly, so much better when I realised it’s great to do small nice things for people, and occasionally point to odd horse to the water source, but sometimes when it is required taking a step back and not losing my own life trying to save lost causes.
Old Spice used to have great advertisements. Apple used to be really good at it too (I can still remember the I’m a Mac/PC commercials). No recent commercials strike me as particularly memorable though. I’m not sure if it’s because the quality of them has declined, I’ve gotten less impressed by them in general, or… Continue reading which brand has the best advertisements?
I was at Borders and I saw this cute Asian girl reading about aliens and I came up to her and I said, “Hey” and she looked at me and responded,”Um no”, shook her head and walked away as fast as she could.
First of all, he needs professional help, but I don’t see that happening anytime soon. Even then, there’s no excuse for all the disgusting things he’s been saying and the people he surrounds himself with. I have no sympathy for Kanye, he’s a piece of shit.
And in addition to that, after that “press conference”, someone else got on the mic and said something like “If you’ve witnessed voter fraud, we want to talk to you over there.” which I think was by some lumber or some shit. The whole thing was an absolute joke.
There are literally dozens of food kitchens/banks in every major city, if you didn’t want to ever spend money on food ever again, you could definitely eat pretty well for free if you didn’t mind feeling like a piece of shit for pretending like you’re in need lol
The downvote button is only partially satisfying. Some redditors feel the need to go one step further in expressing their disagreement. Direct confrontation can lead to bans, so sarcasm fills the gap.
So here’s what happened. Stop giving a fuck about any Kardashian or any high end clothing/accessory company. Period. Full stop. We give these idiots voices. Then these idiots do idiot things and all we can talk about is the idiot things these idiots did or said, thus perpetuating the idiocy.
Poached egg, idk what it is about them but mine just don’t form right in a pan, like the only way I can get it to form right is if I do it in a microwave. But who the f wants microwaved eggs?
Lick my lips while we make out and then spit in my mouth, and then going back to making out with me while their spit is in my mouth And now the reddit appropriate answer … Agree to take down capitalism with me
I pretend the bottom of my foot is a phone and I boop the pads of my feet to dial out. Ring ring, who’s calling?
New Game Smell. If you’re too young to remember, Games used to come in Plastic Casings and when it was a brand new Game wrapped in Plastic, you’d peel it off and the smell from opening the Case the first time was amazing.
I got hit by a car. Had he not been forced to slow down to turn a corner, he would have killed me. He was going fast enough I was thrown a few feet away from the car and his windscreen was, though still technically in one piece, shattered.
See that’s the thing while there are things in my life I wish I hadn’t done ultimately making those mistakes allowed me to grow into the person I’ve become so the question would end up being would I actually change anything about my past? I don’t think so, I think what happened was necessary for… Continue reading If you could go back and change one thing about your past, what would it be?
When you have pineapple, ham, and jalapenos together you get that perfect savory/sweet/spicy combo and it tastes awesome. Oh and I smoked a lot of weed in high school and college so it might have warped my perceptions.
The marks of a good prank: Does not risk injury to anyone. Will be funny to everyone, including the victim. Is not cruel or hateful. So, sticking googly eyes on everything in the fridge = good prank. Anything that feels like something a bully would do = bad prank.

Stop working out and stop dieting. I’m known for looking somewhat fit and younger than my age and avoiding junk food. Do the opposite for months they won’t know me. But also, my body has lost nearly all tolerance for fast-food so this will also make me deathly ill.
No problem if they’re around my age, your welcome if they’re older (it’s a generational thing – younger people find “your welcome” rude, older people find “no problem” rude)
Mine changed constantly, but atm is the following: Bones (Give Heart Records) Nothing Left To Want (Give Heart Records) Obsolete (Give Heart Records) Shallow Breath (Deadlands) We Know What Scares You (TryHardNinja)
My wife once left for three days because she was mad that I offered a guest in our home a piece of cake. No, really, that was the summary of the story.

There are a few theories out there that could explain déjà-vu, but the most likely one is that it’s simply a glitch in our brain. When we have déjà-vu, it feels like we’re reliving a moment from the past, but in reality, we’re just experiencing a brief moment of confusion. This theory suggests that our… Continue reading What’s your best conspiracy theory that explains Déjà-Vu?

Don’t stress so much about school work. I was so stressed constantly, I was not a bad student. Too responsible perhaps. I was always worried about my grades and I’d wake up early in the morning to revise for school. Actually now as adult I see, I could have enjoyed school more and not stress… Continue reading What advice would you give your teenage-self?
Bananas, potentially. At least the ones we’re familiar with. They’re all genetic clones, and we’ve lost an entire varietal before from the lack of genetic diversity and it could happen again.
That is difficult to answer as it depends on personal taste. Some popular choices might be shows like Cheers, Friends, or The Cosby Show which all have memorable theme songs.
Depending on who is forcing it, I’m not sure, but for the person themselves, it can be great to get away from work and let your mind breathe for a while.
You need to trust yourself. Once, I was overthinking about one of my ex’s that could actually be talking to someone else. Everything he did was like an act of making me overthink about the situation, even though he would tell me and “do” everything to make me feel safe with him and, in the… Continue reading When has your overthinking actually helped you in the future?
The problem is when you overthink and have a positive outcome, it’s just the right amount of thinking. When you get a negative outcome, then it’s overthinking.
Give them rollerblades and protective gear, go out on a paved surface, and have em fuck around for a while.
Many aspects of my life that sound unhappy to you are in fact preferable to me. I’m not miserable being socially isolated, it’s my preference – I simply want different things than you do. What makes me happy is having my wishes respected, not you trying to force your idea of happiness onto me.
“Remembered by God” is the direct meaning of my first name & ironically I’ve ended up an atheist. My mother, a devout orthodox Christian, says one day I’ll return to the light cuz god will never forget me lol.
Not a nurse, but work closely. You absolutely can. There are a lot of ethical concerns, but if a person is delusional from drug treatment or brain damage it’s necessary to keep them restrained. Chemical sedation is also a common answer instead of physical restraint.
People “doing their own research.” If you aren’t a scientist, you aren’t doing research. You are reviewing the research (or in most cases, misleading news articles) and making a decision with lopsided information.
I’ve only done it once. The server just left. Like nobody in the restaurant knew where to find him, so I got my bill from the manager and paid at the POS terminal. I think he might have just quit the job. I swear it wasn’t my fault.
when someone stares at your face , you can see it in your peripheral vision but you don’t want to look back at them because it would either make it even more awkward or it would make you smile , it also feels uneasy .
My ex-wife went on a date with another man. They didn’t even sleep together, they just went to a movie, had dinner and then shared a kiss when he dropped her off. That shit hurt when I found out about it. I packed up and left a couple days later, divorce shortly after.
Virtue ethics. It provides the best blueprint for individuals and societies. Can scale up or down for individuals up to nation states. Requires and makes no supernatural or religious claims.

The written language, the ability to write down marks that will last hundreds of thousands of years and still convey the same message that was intended to anybody who can decipher them is one of the greatest accomplishments in human history.

I firmly believe that both democrats and republicans in this country are equally to blame for the shit-show of a mess we’re in now. (US) This pisses people off because nobody wants to admit any fault on the part of whichever cults kool-ade they’ve been guzzling.
There are a number of great movies that have been ruined by their sequels. Some examples include The Godfather, The Exorcist, and The Omen.
Web browsing when I’m too lazy to grab my laptop, some texting and messaging apps, taking photos when I need to, local music playback when I’m out and about, watching YouTube ,calls, notes.

That they were a pedophile/rapist There are other things that could end a relationship, but they’re all situation-specific. You can accidentally kill someone, or kill someone in self defense You cannot ‘accidentally’ rape anyone.
Ascent, literally my ascent. I’m paired with a god gifted ascent where I have people ask about or compliment on the daily, paired with my formal attitude and wide vocabulary it’s how I actually met my current day lover.
Discovered I had a vore fetish through a dream, I had a very, very confused boner when I woke up jolted.
I never loved JonTron, but I definitely got some major laughs out of his videos in the old days. Like ten years ago or whatever; he used to do funny roasts of video games and other stuff. Then he had one of those “I was a racist the whole time!!” meltdowns that some people just… Continue reading What are some YouTubers that you loved so much, became one of the most problematic people ever?
The ability to levitate one foot in the air and nothing more. (while airborn I’d be at the mercy of the wind, wouldn’t even be able to float around.) You can pretty much only use it to show off but it’d be an awesome party trick all the same.
First of all, welcome! Second of all…this place has a way of amplifying whatever energy you put into it. If you go looking for good vibes, you’ll find them more often. Same for knowledge, laughs, niche fandoms, etc. And for the negative stuff too: trolling, mediocrity, meanness, etc. AskReddit in particular is large enough that… Continue reading first time here what should! know ?
That’s an interesting question. I suppose it would be something that inflicts great harm and suffering for no positive value whatsoever. Honestly…I think what comes to mind for me is not technology but culture. The ideas of hate for hate’s sake, of brutal oppression and slaughter, of alienation. If I had to pick a single… Continue reading What’s the worst thing humans have ever invented?
Anpanman, mikrokosmos, mic drop, run bts, spring day, black swan. .any of those really
People citing Tik Tok songs in regular conversation, like it’s the same thing as using an adjective. Like if something cringey happens and someone starts singing a line from a song, because on Tik Tok that’s a soundbite used for cringey situations.
Meaning. I’ll work hard for free if the work is meaningful. Likewise, if work isn’t meaningful, no amount of momey could force me to do it. Probably explains why I have no money. * Cries meaningfuly *
I’m usually not thinking about anything. Either that or it’s something I don’t want to tell the person asking. It’s nothing bad, just something embarrassing, stupid, or that I don’t want to explain why I’m thinking about if France ever decapitated a child monarch while we’re eating supper.
You’re a single person, not a single parent. I consider a single parent as one who is doing so without the help of the other parent. Child support doesn’t count.. like actual parenting solo. All the day to day things. I’ve seen people who married who I’d practically consider a single parent.
Mountain, Different country, off beat location, scenic view, drink, laptop, work. Everything I need! Edit – With my wife.
It’s probably animal crossing. You and quickly spend a long time in there, and it’s relaxing, even if you’re technically doing chores in a game.
Watership Down. Big classic but i didn’t care for it very much. Military, movements, males, flora, religion. All very straightforward and simple, ultimately pretty dull. When i saw there was a whole part called Efrafa i almost dropped it.
I never liked reading, but Rich Dad Poor Dad was really interesting to me and totally changed my perspective on my financial future. Who doesn’t find making money interesting? It’s really a mainstream book but it is for a reason!
I was here for the peak of it, and let me tell you, if it bothers you now, holy shit would you have lost your mind back then. Edgelords everywhere, r-atheism on the front page every day, and not a hint of self-awareness when their energy got eerily similar to the religions they derided.
It depends, perhaps, on which end of the shark your, or oneself’s, arm is up. But either way, it’s probably best to extricate yourself and apologize to the shark.

The teacher who came off as creepy but his personality was considered “funny” at the time actually turned out to be a sexual predator. Career over, pension lost, wife left him.
The sense of the uncanny in dreams is hard to convey. In the clear light of day, writing on a website, the events of a nightmare can sound almost comical but I think it’s the overriding emotion in the dream that matters more than the content. I used to have a recurring dream where I… Continue reading What is the weirdest dream you had?
I want to be super rich and not have to work. I would just be on vacation all the time. Hanging out, traveling everywhere, and just having a good time.
Depends on the situation. You either identify what area needs work and try again, or change directions. Shit happens, those cheering for you know not everything goes as planned. Dont sweat it and plan for next step.
Severe civil unrest that pushes my area into martial law. I live in the north east of America. There are alot of people everywhere.

It has a bold design which is naturally going to exclude a lot of customers, one reason why so many cars all look alike these days, and is not a very practical vehicle as a daily driver.

I’ll start, My girlfriend doesn’t work, but we treat my income as our income. I decided to ask Reddit because I find it very odd that all of her family keeps their income separate from their partners, and honestly don’t understand why. You’re a couple, you are one entity in my mind.
Long story short, I just got offered a job that is a step up from where I currently am, but I’m nervous about putting in my two weeks tomorrow. I feel as though the company I’m currently with is taking advantage of me, and my abilities. The only coworker I enjoyed working with, left the… Continue reading Why so nervous about putting in a two weeks notice for a company and team that’s lacking?
mad scientist. I wanna engineer tissues for things like organ transplantation and improved cancer treatment. Giant robot can come later, but I married an ME, so that’s on track. I’m applying for my PhD. Wish me luck, I’m terrified.
I brush daily, multiple times. I’ve seen in r/askwomen/askmen that this isn’t the case. I don’t agree with missing a shower but I can do it and not hate myself. I feel shame when I don’t brush my teeth at least in the morning and before bed.

none. I know conspiracy theorists, they’re morons. or somewhat clever, but completely lacking in self-awareness.
I have had women tell me I’m good looking without prompt more than once. I’ve even had a cashier tell me I’m sexy before, though that was pretty weird. Even a few gay dudes have told me I’m a really attractive guy
Paying for food at a drive through, getting my credit card and receipt handed back to me, and driving away without my actual food.

Imagine removing the first second of something like the Trinity nuclear bomb test. You just erase the entire detonation, poof the bomb just disappears.

Surrender honestly. Accept them as a decoration. You could spritz the tree with citronella spray or something. It’s not good for them, don’t let them ingest it, but it is a repellent. Don’t spray the electric lights and such. Or close off the room if possible.
I’m gonna give hand-made gifts to a bunch of my family, and then I’m gonna spend time with as much extended family as I can, and then I’m gonna sleep for a solid thirteen hours before I have to drive cross-counrty to get back to my job.
“How You Remind Me” ain’t too bad. I wouldn’t put it on a playlist, but there’s some good stuff going on there. I only know their singles though; I’ve never listened to an actual album.

There is so much more competition out there now. Shows cost a lot of money to make, so if they’re not performing well pretty quickly, they won’t get renewed.
The most commonly worn clothing item. A high quality version that’s their favorite color. Never gets old, every compliment brings you to mind. Or a subscription to something they enjoy, same idea. A gift that keeps on giving.
If you’re an adult and you’re in public, it’s unpleasant and annoying. We live in a society, and libertarians can say “I do what I want” until they’re blue in the face but it’s just inconsiderate of dealing with other people. If you’re in private, act as silly and immature as you want. But don’t… Continue reading What’s wrong with being immature?
Mine is, a sex-ed teacher goes into a classroom with a condom and a banana. He says to the children, “All right children, I am now going to demonstrate how to put on a condom. And I’ve got a banana because I can’t get hard on an empty stomach”.
The most common and easiest to describe of these brutal tactics was simply razing whole villages to the ground when the residents were slaughtered. First and foremost, Vikings simply wanted loot; if the hassle of attacking a settlement or town wasn’t worth the amount of loot they could potentially get, they wouldn’t go. If you… Continue reading What kind of brutalities were utilized by the Vikings?
Start good habits that refuse the bad ones. For example, instead of sitting down after work, go straight to the gym after work. Otherwise you won’t go afterwards because you’ve made yourself too comfortable.
Isn’t that the one they say is due to a “super eruption”. Debris would affect everyone. Sky blacked out for a while, darkness. People googling sunshine as porn.
take a picture by Filter, apparently it was played at my brother funeral and ever since I heard that I now associate the song with him and the memories my family has of him. (note: my brother died before I was born so I never truly knew him.)
The availability of information and communication channels does not make our lives more difficult. It is determined by how we use it. One significant issue is that our patience and expectations have shifted. People, for example, expect immediate responses from technology and from one another. And people expect us to move everything faster just because… Continue reading What are the biggest changes the internet has made to the world?
When I was in junior high school a handful of girls had a reputation for being calientahuevos. The meaning of this expression is similar to “being a tease”. The literal translation is “testicle warmer.” It’s the girl willing to go pretty far but who stops short of engaging in full sexual intercourse. The implication is… Continue reading What is a common mistake people make without realizing it?
Germany. They’re very accepting of all types of different people, they’re very friendly. I can’t think of a single thing that those guys have ever done wrong.
I can’t remember which state but me and my mate were laughing the other day about the fact in one of the states you can’t stand in a bus stop with a missile.

By gaslighting all of my friend group that kicking his girlfriend in the ribs was an acceptable thing to do. It didn’t work at all and she’s no longer with him and is part of our group now it was fucking mental.
I almost always refer to my partner as my partner. The word boyfriend in my language often implies that the relationship is either very new or very casual, or that the people involved are very young (teenagers), and while that’s not definitive by any means, it’s still not something I want to be associated with… Continue reading Is it just a reddit thing to call your girlfriend/boyfriend/Wife/Husband your partner, or is it actually used in common practice, now? Why or why not?
I used to buy fixer-upper ebikes because I enjoyed fixing them up, building new battery packs and so on. After three got stolen and one broke in half, I bought a brand new folding one.

People that can’t “read an audience” and overshare to a horrifying degree. We’re all weird, most of us have sense enough to control it though.
A woman is an adult with the sexual characteristics of a female. A man is an adult with the sexual characteristics of a male. This includes physiological and psychological characteristics.

In the United States, prisoners are typically required to pay for their own food, clothing, and hygiene products. They may also be charged fees for medical care and phone calls. In some states, prisoners are even required to pay rent.
There is no purpose, our lives are as meaningless as the flies we swat. So have fun with it, like a fly does. You’ll likely piss others off as you do, like a fly does. Then when the world has had enough of your shit, you’ll cease to exist, like a fly does.
My boyfriend and I met through working at McDonalds. Looking back, the biggest sign I think of is how often he wanted to get my opinion on even the little things, or just include me in conversations more, in a small group environment, even when surrounded by friends of his, he wanted to talk some… Continue reading People of Reddit: How to tell if a guy is attracted to you?

This is a reply I made to someone on a post about this same thing pretty much but it sums it all up: I care way too much (about my looks). It’s literally all I think about. (Main problem… Continue reading What can one do to stop thinking about a perception one has about themselves and how can they just stop caring about their looks in general (more in comments below)?
After you have fed, bathed, read-to, and sung-to your child, it’s okay to lie and say “I’ll be right back” and if they need to cry, that’s okay, too.
Work ethic. Also pride in their city/country. They don’t even employ janitors in most schools because the students will go out of their way to clean up after themselves.
Honestly a woman that posts on social media. I use Reddit for info and stuff but don’t post anything else anywhere. It just makes me shake my head when people post on instagram or something daily about their coffee or how they’re going to sleep. Okay?..I value privacy and it just grosses me out and… Continue reading What’s your most unusual or specific deal breaker when dating?
A lot of extreme sports. I’m not really critical of people that want to rock climb or scale the tallest mountains or cave dive, etc. If that’s how you want to live your life more power to you and I can definitely think of worse ways to spend your time. I just don’t understand the… Continue reading What is a hobby/activity or something you just can’t understand the attraction to?
Ask her. Don’t give her any typical newborn gifts she probably already has. Ask her what she needs. Onesies, diapers, pacifiers etc.
The finals are on a Sunday evening so you won’t need time of work and everything before that won’t get you time off work probably. Even here in Germany, where football is more important than anything most of us won’t get time off work
The Netherlands They weren’t lying about the Vikings raiding villages and only taking the beautiful woman.

I think it’s probably just the same as blacking out. You don’t realize it happened until you wake back up from it. So you probably don’t realize you died at all. Kind of like falling asleep, you can’t really pinpoint the exact moment it happened most the time.
Damn, sometimes the stereotypes really get to me. I get really annoyed when people assume things about china. I live in china and man, people think its a dystopia here. It really isn’t. Social credit isn’t a thing, I haven’t seen any sus government behaviour so yeah. Also, we aren’t all good at math (me).
I enjoyed Matt Martin’s “Snowman” series. It was the story of a vengeful indigenous person’s spirt, trapped in two arrowheads. When the arrowheads touched snow, the spirit was unleashed as an elemental being.
Some cheap Death Note rip-off that appeared to not only have been done in Flash, but featured a guy who had a “sex note” or something. Except it didn’t coerce the people to have sex with them, it was just a list of his future rape victims. It was also incredibly boring.
Skating and paint ball guns! I dunno, I just have a gut that I can do it hahaha. I would love to try someday. Just like I felt while surfing, I had this smol gut that I can do it and it turns out I am a fast learner. Oh how I wish to surf… Continue reading what’s something you’ve never tried but know you’d be good at?
I don’t know if this counts as famous, but- There was a guy once that broke down (pretty convincingly) how and about how long it would actually take the FBI/local police to figure out that Bruce Wayne was Batman and arrest him if Gotham were in the real world. Answer: not long.
Entirely depends on the circumstances, e.g. do I know him, what’s he crying about, etc. etc.
My mom started not driving a lot a couple years ago, now she won’t drive at all. My brother still lives with her but since he’s always either working or gone, she asks me to drive her places which is a lot of places because she’s got that old fashioned mindset where she wants to… Continue reading What’s annoying about parents as they get older?
Self-confidence grows from within, one tiny step at a time, and it grows, not by thinking, but by taking action. The problem is that we go about it the wrong way. Too often we make these giant goals. But what happens if we fail to complete these goals? We see ourselves as total failures and… Continue reading What are the tricks to boost your self-confidence?
No. You can do it for a while in your youth but long term it WILL screw up your health in ways that are hard to recover from. The problem the world doesn’t work the graveyard shift.

Sneak to the candy bowl,drop most of it on the floor, and sneak away from it.

SPRINT AWAY when she started sounding… Continue reading If your five-year-old self suddenly found itself in your current body, what would your five-year-old self do first?
Myself. There’s things I want to do and aspirations I want to achieve but I don’t have the drive to do any of it. Or the money. But to be honest even with a few million dollars I’d still sink into a quieter anti-social life.
If you’re on the Reddit app,click on your profile pic, below that there’s an option saying “create a community.”
I find ways to give my life meaning. I help my friends and family in every way I can. I volunteer for various activities and organizations. I do my best to make the world a better place.
Get a financial advisor with any significant amount of money first and foremost! Then I’d pay off my house that I’m fortunate enough to have and finally be able to finish the never-ending repairs and upgrades on it so that it would finally be “done”. The rest would go into the bank.
Thst scene where Adam Droliver takes a spoonful of soup, gives an exaggerated okay sign with his fingers, and says aloud, “Good soup.”
When they told me the actual date they were born on, and not just July. Assumed the starsign was Leo, but it was cancer.
“What’s something you’ve never told anyone?” This is not a good icebreaker because basically no one is gonna honestly answer it. Y’all are breaking the ice, just getting to know eachother. Why would they reveal something to someone they don’t know that they haven’t to whomever they trust the most in the world?
A gay person is culturally influenced by being gay, both from societal expectations and also by hanging out with other gay people Compare it to accents. It’s not like, biological that people in the south talk differently than people in the north, it’s cultural
Sleep with a snail squishmallow to protect me from monsters, keep the hall light on so that demons don’t follow me, watch kids shows, refuse profusely to eat foods I dislike. YES I WILL pick the olives out of my salad sister just WATCH me!
I can’t get hyped for Christmas until there’s snow on the ground. I hope it snows soon, I can go through the motions and buy presents if the ground is brown but my heart won’t be in it the same as if it’s snowy.
Revolution, justice, screaming for solutions, forcing changes, risk, and danger, making noise and making pleas!
I would only go back a few weeks so I can win that billion dollar lotto, the further back I go the greater the potential damage to the timeline and I’m pretty sure the reward vs risk ratio wouldn’t get much better than that for me
As someone that came from a hot climate then lived in a cold place for a while, double, triple, quadruple the socks. They get wet, even if you’re wearing boots, so would your shoes.

I had a housemate who literally defecated on the bathroom floor in a little line to the toilet set, had left a large pile of poop on it, and left even more in the toilet. They also used my pots and pans, and took them to their room, only to bring them back weeks later… Continue reading What’s the worst thing a housemate has ever done to your home?
Probably how easy it’s become to be a scalper. Get a few bots to make the purchases for you, rent a storage unit to keep the shit, and use reselling websites to flip the product without much of any risk. Why work for your money when you can just play the role of parastic middleman?
Solve might be the wrong word but I think we could do a lot in regards to homelessness, hunger, drug addiction. But we decide to send billions of dollars off to other places instead of helping ourselves first
I try not to, but on several occasions I’ve sat through watching Dr. Pol shoulder-deep in a cow uterus or Dr. Jeff (Rocky Mt. Vet) doing surgery while trying to eat lunch. Most of it doesn’t bother me.
Dough – you need a good foundation for great pizza, so start with a high-quality dough. Sauce – choose your favorite, whether it’s tomato, pesto, white, or a combination. Cheese – mozzarella is a classic, but goat cheese, feta, cheddar, and Parmesan are great options as well. Toppings – top your pizza with all your… Continue reading What ingredients make the perfect pizza?

If your mirror is wrong it sounds defective, I recommend buying a massive safe that it will fit it, then burying it in concrete in your garden. If you ever see a whole open up over where you buried it. move!
Stairs. Some people hates it and even prefer elevators. But come to think of it, if it wasn’t invented we are climbing through a pole or a rope or maybe we are just living in a bungalow-type structures.
Mutually assured destruction. We all signed treaties that says we will not use weapons of mass destruction unless the other guy does it first. But you can bet that once the treaty is broken, everyone will respond.
If I knew the date I was going to die, I would change a few things about myself. For starters, I would try to be healthier and exercise more often. I would also spend more time with my family and friends, and try to make the most of every moment. Additionally, I would probably take… Continue reading If you could know the date you are going to die, what things would you change or do differently about yourself?

As a fellow brit, mine was oddly how the cars would drive on the opposite side of the road.

Eventually something unanticipated occurs, like an unexpected witness, or an unseen security camera, or they drop something. In the case of the BTK killer, it was because he re-used a floppy disk and police “undeleted” files on it that led to him.
The same way I’d tell non-strict/religious parents. If you’re moving in with an S/O, you’re an adult and can do what you please, and if your parents don’t like it, that’s their problem.

Depends, if it’s trump u support then rethink ur life choices, if u support someone else then y do u have to care abt what ur family thinks?
Honestly, all of them. Town festivals (my hometown celebrated its tricentennial a few years back), family holidays, concerts, you name it. I just hate being around people, I find it overwhelming and it sometimes even causes me to shut down entirely.
If you have a Library card, overdrive, Libby, and Hoopla are all apps that let you borrow ebooks and audiobooks for free linked to your library. If you don’t have a library card, they are usually easy to get and free.
Humans. When vegans compare humans to other animals in their arguments of “you wouldn’t do that to a baby would you” no. Why? because I’m biased towards my own species. So sorry that rationale ain’t working here
am tapping into my family historical roots, where they had to live a frugal life during their first two world wars. They too had riches at one point, and it was simply taken away from them. keep on climbing the hill, never give up. life is always worth it.
We give AI directives, such as, never cause any harm to humans. But we keep getting news about AI creating things itself, that we do not fully understand. What’s to say the descendant creations of AI will not be motivated to eliminate humans
When a person who’s lived a very active social life finds themselves old and discarded by society, they often turn towards the service industry, as it’s part of their job to have small talk with the customer. Their thirst for social interaction leads to them taking whatever they can get, even if it’s just small… Continue reading Old people why do you have so many questions when your at teller, with associate in front of the line therefore holding up the line?
If I did not hear or recognize that I was being addressed, then it could be anything. One must always make allowances for this. As for minimal or no responses to random greetings, it is usually because: I get greeted a lot by strangers and I’m not a public figure. In certain contexts, there are… Continue reading People who don’t say “hello” back to strangers, what are you thinking?
Your mileage may very depending on your personal preferences. City vs rural, new vs used, what county of residency, weather conditions, individual vs carpool… Can you please clarify the question better.
Trades. Can’t have a modern society without builders to build the buildings that the activities of society are done within, electricians to wire the buildings, plumbers to manage the water networks, carpenters to build the furniture, mechanics to repair the mechanical devices and vehicles, etc.
Personally, I’d say getting a tattoo of a lion or a wolf is as cliché as a woman getting a butterfly tramp stamp. It’s a bit basic. While it definitely wouldn’t be ‘alpha’, you are entirely free to tattoo whatever you like on yourself. Worrying about whether or not people will think your tattoo is… Continue reading What do you think of a lion tattoo? Do you see it as being an alpha or do you see it as growth and leadership?
Kid’s brains are basically information sponges, and when we talk about “being good with technology”, all we usually mean is “Able to navigate a Apple UI designed with your grandma in mind.” or, if we’re being generous “Able to open the settings menu and tweak stuff”. It’s not surprising your kid can handle a Chromebook… Continue reading What’s your take on the corelation between children and technology?
The complete phrase is “Jack of all trades, master of none, but often times better than the master of one.” So generally speaking being good at a bunch of stuff is way more useful than being super good at literally only one thing.
As much as I like to travel and see new things. I would at my current point in life is to have a week stay-cation. Order in food for each day and just booze around and play some video games. I think all inclusive resorts are a waste of time. (That’s my personal opinion).
Surely Harvey Weinstein, or similar assholes are much worse than primadonna actors/actresses, which people might think of first.
Anthem. Such a disappointing game. It didn’t have any drive for end-game content and they released stuff just too slowly. If the player base stuck around or if they added PvP early then it would have kept the excitement. What a loss.
Just curious. If there are poor people in USA, Is it only because of their own fault ? But, USA might be the best country for the poor. After all, they are the richest ever empire in the human history.
Distance yourself, there is no way around it. And magic, they’re not the closest anymore. Happened to me aswell, and receiving insults when coming over to help people move sealed the deal, left them on the spot and instead i moved on with my life.
I think it’s to feel superior, despite low self confidence, the racist part anyway. Conservatives aren’t necessarily racist, but don’t like the idea of big government.
The shame you get from historic memories needs to be eliminated too. E. Why are you blushing sir? Oh nothing just recalling the time I took a shit in the dogs bowl’

When I was young, I thought of aging as walking gracefully down a long staircase. As I descend I slowly grow weaker and get more aches and pains but it’s a gradual process. Nope. Sometimes you’re walking gracefully, and other times your falling ass over teakettle for a long time.
in the schools In some schools, children are being taught that it is okay to be gay or transgender. They are also being taught that there is no such thing as gender, and that anyone can be anything they want to be.
When I was a teen, a girl pressured me to date her. I wasn’t really into her, but she guilted me into feeling bad so I said yes. A few days later, I told her I wanted to break up. So we did. She called me a few days later and again, pressured and guilted… Continue reading Guys, what was the stupidest reason a girl broke up with you?
One of them grew the fuck up and we became amicable in junior and senior year, I’d say buddies when we saw each other around town in the years after. He died a couple years ago while I was at sea.

We don’t really have one near me – closest is over an hour – but if I’m near one I try to pop in just to see what’s there. Last time I got a flat bread pizza dough that was pretty good and I’d get again. I also like their triple ginger snaps.
The issue is monopolies. If a company becomes too large or absorbs too many ‘rivals’ in a certain space the deal can be blocked because it would create a monopoly. A monopoly is bad because it gives the company that holds it too much power to charge what they like, be uncompetitive in quality, and… Continue reading What are the problems Microsoft having buying Activision and Blizzard, if Activision and Blizzard want to sell themselves, How would anyone be able to cancel the deal, just like what Sony is doing?
I never used one but I would think a genuine connection is missed. Like meeting someone, having a conversation and learning about each other. On dating apps is all just kind of out there. Just going by friends’ experiences.
Just last week, my husband and I were driving home from the beach along a tree-lined road. Husband: “The wind has really picked up.” Me: “It has, hasn’t it.

Consent is not the lack of a no. It’s the presence of a freely given, constantly given, enthusiastic yes. If you gotta wear her down to get her to agree, that’s not consent. That’s coercion If she just doesn’t say no, that’s not consent.
Hiring someone to clean your house. No, not the naughty maid type. Just a regular one. My girlfriend and I hire someone to come once a month and we treat it like an investment in our relationship.

There are many traditional gender roles that can be seen as problematic, such as the idea that women are only meant to be homemakers, or that men must always be the breadwinners.

Read an lecture about how the world’s problems can be neatly split up into two types of problems: clock problems and cloud problems. Clock problems are generally technical and scientific problems, linear and “simple”. Cloud problems tend to be complex, social, political and messy problems. The issue?

I’d say the most toxic so far is the Dark Souls fandom. Just take a dip, and you will see. Less toxic? Maybe Red Dead Redemption fandom?

All the cartel videos and executions/torture. I just don’t understand why people have the drive to hurt each other rather than bring each other up.

Lack of evidence to indicate who is guilty.

They will have other means of communication. Some demand apps will share the news such as the ABC app (or whatever company will get control over it).

That covid vaccines will save other people. Vaccines work by triggering your bodies immune system to be able to recognize and thwart a virus. It does nothing to prevent you from getting a virus, nor from passing it on.
I think a lot of jobs can be automated now but they won’t do it because there needs to be jobs for more people. It’s going to be scary reality when everything is automated and there’s no jobs for anyone.

That we all carry guns, they think we’re all just out here armed saying things like “I’m soo afraid to go to America” I don’t know anyone that carries and I live in a state where it’s the easiest to do so, I also don’t know many people that own one period.
That if I didn’t obey them without question God would take note and I’d be one step closer to burning in hell for all of eternity. But supposedly it was all out of love, so credit where credit is due?
I curled up in a ball Thursday and Friday, slept, ate, watched TV. Climbed out of my cocoon yesterday and was refreshed, hit the gym did errands – feel good. So thanksgiving was restorative
Dogs honestly love their owners. They’re loyal and nothing makes them happier than you getting home from work. There are lots of dogs to choose from.

I looked it up and I couldn’t find a consistent answer. All book, PJ subreddits just said random stuff that weren’t book titles. This was my last hope, sorry.
Those beliefs are fairly specific, so you have a pretty hardcore conspiracy theorist on hand. It’s very hard to argue about the truthfullenss of conspiracy theories as it’s by definition impossible to disprove them completely, so I wouldn’t be bothered enough to speak to such a person really.
Hockey, but like, in person. Go to your local hockey game. The atmosphere is indescribable. Hot dogs, beer, fights, and blazing fast players smashing each other. It’s the Canadian Coliseum.

The Trump Presidency. Everything in that man’s life doesn’t make a damn bit of sense. For the number of crimes he’s committed it’s a wonder he’s still alive, let alone not in prison, let alone not convicted.

Honestly, i have only smoked it a handful of times and it all tasted/felt the same to me, i guess i don’t have very sophisticated tastes because all red wine tastes the same to me too lol
I think it’s still just as important for personal experiences of those who go, but degree inflation impacts a lot. Used to be a license to print money. Now a bachelor’s degree is essentially a hunting license.
The Great Gatsby. In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since. ‘Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,’ he told me, ‘just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.’ It also has… Continue reading Which book do you think has the best opening line?

Thinking for yourself is not now, and has never been, the default state of any human society. Hell, that’s kinda the point of society in a lot of ways. Hard to have a civilization when you let everybody decide for themselves when homicide is OK, for example.
Some good things about American culture or society include freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the rule of law.
Some people say that Christmas spirit is something that you have to work at, and it doesn’t come as easily as it did when you were younger. Others say that Christmas spirit is something that fades over time, and that’s just a natural part of growing up.
Probably that teenaged “finding yourself” phase that everyone hates.

Depends on which topic. If we’re talking tourism/vacation/ to visit, I would say France and Italy, for the beautiful and very diverse natural landscapes, the food and the art/museums. The people, more Italy than France (though people are wayyyyy nicer in the south of France than Paris).
Some qualities that make a politician good in any country are the ability to compromise, being well-informed about the issues, and being able to work with people from different backgrounds.
Good place to start is thinking of something they want, something they need, something to do or something to read.

Alien is still, after all these years, my favorite movie. That simple yet nuanced worldbuilding with relatable, realistic characters that segues into suspense, then quickly transforms into horror was, and still is, a masterpiece.
No experience with flat earthers but with conspiracy theorists.When they think that A is impossible and you show that A is possible, they will either find a reason why your attempt isnt a definite proof or they will try to tie you into the controlling/controlled group.
‘Wonderful Christmas Time’ by Paul McCartney Just brings back some nice childhood memories, which are a rarity
A former best friend of mine did just this and lied to me about it 😔 I wasn’t even upset they did it. Maybe I should’ve been, but I was way more upset she lied to my face for a month+ and I had to hear about it from three other mutual friends. Shit stings.
Airplanes. It’s soooo much effort.

Fall/Winter I love the colder weather and getting to wear coats and jackets. I’m not a fan of hot weather. I also love the holidays. I love decorating for holidays, and what’s great about Oct. – Dec. is that there is three holidays to decorate for. So I get decorations for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas
We had a charity thing in highschool where you’d raise money for cancer. The amount being raised was shown on a thermometer and every limit would force a teacher to shave their head.

This happened recently, cutting my own hair. I started off small, then every night just kept doing it. Now I have half of my hair gone, looks like I shaved it off. I was using safety scissors, just liked the way it sounded when it cut hair I guess lol
As a woman I have no idea, but as a man: Get into the gym and start lifting. Read up on fashion and men’s clothing, and go buy new clothes. Fix your teeth. Read up on skin care and start using products everyday.
“Have yourself a merry little Christmas”. I always thought that was sad. Also the “seeing is believing” theme from the Polar Express, at least the intro, the last part of it is more upbeat.
I flew back east to my brother’s wedding in Virginia from AZ. My uncle and his family lived in Las Vegas at the time and didn’t go to the wedding. Prior to the wedding, we decided to drive up to Philadelphia for a family trip. We took our kids on a duck tour and it… Continue reading What is your craziest “what are the odds” story?
One day at the bar I worked at, a group of guys got too drunk and were bothering me. I ended up crying and having to run outside. Somebody else at the bar came outside to sit with me and distracted me by teaching me to play solitaire on his phone
Are people inherently good and corrupted by their environment, are they just born imperfect, or does it depend on the individual?)
I like the concept of an unlocked limiter like one punch man, you might not be the strongest or fastest right away but slowly over time you just naturally grow into god tier, gives you time to adapt to things and learn to hold back as needed rather then just become superman and accidently turn… Continue reading what is a superpower you want as a hero and villain?
The fall of the Berlin Wall. I was far too young to understand the geopolitical implications. The second major news story I remember, a few weeks later, was the École Polytechnique massacre. Unfortunately, I don’t think there’s such a thing as being too young to understand something like that. It scared me.
I ate dog, cat, bat, snake, grasshoppers, elephant, Tapir, Pac, Lizard, crocodile, kangaroo, horse… most tasted pretty good. Lizard was disgusting though
Dr. Brelad for chemistry. He’d talk about random current events and if you asked questions on the course work he’d say “read the book” and when the class average is a D on the exam, he’d actually show us what we did wrong once it’s too late Also he wrote the mandatory lab manual you… Continue reading Who was your worst teacher ever?
The creator of Yandere Simulator, and The creators of TBATF. The second one is an Ed’s world comic. I happen to read quite often. Though the creators have done and said some rather controversial stuff, I still greatly enjoy the comic and find it a beautiful piece of fan work.
You don’t. Dm me any time for anything I’d you ever need to talk. I’ve been there I’m at my worst point right now, I’ve attempted twice. Talk to someone please. I sound ridiculous I know but I genuinely care about your future and well-being. And ignore these assholes they just like the drama
Things look grim. Lots of countries are ruled by conservative totalitarianism, and those people live in slavery and oppression. That’s fucked up. Environment is collapsing. That is fucked up. Billionaires won’t do squat to help with the problems that billions of humans are facing. That is fucked up. Getting your basic needs met can feel… Continue reading What is your explanation for why everyone is “over”life right now?
I wouldn’t delete anyone, if I consider myself entitled to take someone else’s existence away from them, then I’m as bad as a murderer or genocidist. So I’d be destroying myself just to delete one person, that’s not an equal trade, because one good person is worth a million murderers.
Befriending a dog. Mom is against having pets. One summer, I went to this farmhouse with my grandparents (belonged to my aunt at the time) and I became their english mastiff’s friend. She was so gentle. One day, grandpa found us playing and he promised he would not tell mom. Thanks, gramps!
I think Tom and Jerry and Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner are fantastic. Partly because they’re incredibly funny, but mainly because it’s universally funny. You can put people from all over the world, all different ages and cultures in a room and everyone would be able to get enjoyment out of it.
There are many good hammocks for camping. Some of the best include the ENO DoubleNest Hammock, the Kammok Roo Hammock, and the REI Co-op Sahara Hammock.
Never going to happen, I’d not trust a bidet to get my ass completely clean after a messy shit and end up using toilet paper anyway after instead of risking brown streaks on the towels to dry off. At least I assume people use towels after bidets though that’s kinda weird, do they have a… Continue reading What would it take for you to use a bidet instead of toilet paper?
Look, if humans weren’t here, I wouldn’t care about the Earth. Keep your priorities straight, put humans first.
It isn’t entirely a misconception. When Trump was elected, it wasn’t against the rules to tell another user to commit suicide. You can imagine how that went. It became against the rules when liberals started being mean back.
Things like Uber and Lyft are good, but only if you just need short term money like in college or a kid getting married or whatever cause of the wear on your car Participating in studies can make decent money. Look at your nearest university or online Donating blood and plasma and such can make… Continue reading What Are Some simple ways to make money not many people know about?
The actual Martin Luther King Jr., as well as Nelson Mandela. They were both Socialists and crony capitalists are white washing their history and making it seem their only platform was about racial equality.
Bagpipes, but not because I don’t like the sound of them. They’re beautiful when played well. But I’ve attended a LOT of funerals for police line of duty deaths in the last few years, including one where I was seated right next to the widow and the guy’s kids. I have gotten to where I… Continue reading What’s one musical instrument you depsise and why?
A doctor may suspect that a person has terminal cancer based on the person’s symptoms. To confirm the diagnosis, the doctor will order one or more tests, such as a biopsy, CT scan, or PET scan.
To simply put what was your experience as a black man being her parents,how people treat you etc Reason:well it’s the least likely interracial marriage and because of the racist things I have heard about I would like you hear your experience and to see if they are true
I tend to find that after-work activities are a great way. Go to a “meetup” site and find things you like to do (board games, sports, etc.). Common interests are a great foundation for friendships.
Cabinet of Curiosities I’m a Del Toro fan and it’s good but it’s not quiet what I’d hoped it would be. It feels like “meh” stories with lots of unsettling imagery/narrative. Still I’ll keep watching, its not bad, just not quite what I expected so far.
A HUGE, and I mean absolutely HUGE step would be for people to educate themselves about firearms. So many people want to just ban things without even knowing, and in most cases caring, about what it is they are banning. The next step would be for firearm owners to acknowledge that there is a serious… Continue reading What is it going to take to fix the US’s automatic weapon problem?
The same as it was before discovering oil Normal countries being ignored by everyone I’m from Iraq and I don’t think we have any thing special here ,sure the history is interesting but it’s a one time visit
“You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore before you decide to be happy.” – Jane “Nightbirde” Marczewski This has helped me so much when I was at my lowest. It still does and it will always move me. Go check her out. She is a strong, courageous and beautiful woman.
You can check yourself in to a psych ward. Just take some days off, get evaluated, take a break from the rest of the world. I did it when I was younger because I was a danger to myself.
Reddit lived in the shadow of Digg in its early days until a redesign that removed many of Diggs most popular features sent thousands of its devoted fans over to Reddit. There was no going back after that and before long, Reddit became known as the homepage of the internet.
“This isn’t fish, it’s chicken” I don’t explicitly remember many meals I’ve had throughout my childhood but that one is firmly cemented in my core memories lol.
I would. I love children, so having of my own or helping someone raise their own would be a dream. I befriended a resident at my cleaning job who’s a single mother, and while I’m not exactly interested in her romantically, I love them both. Her daughter calls me uncle and melts my heart every… Continue reading Men of Reddit, Would you date a single mom? Why or why not?
It’s the only way to expose critical, systemic problems. It’s way easier to stifle speech than to address lingering issues, especially when powerful people have something to lose.
Not sure if this is the worst one or not but it’s the one that comes to mind. It’s nothing crazy, but I couldn’t get the guy to engage in conversation the majority of the date. At some points he was just staring at the Tv at the restaurant
That he’s not Jake Paul. Still, it’s pretty amazing how his career just sprung back after publishing a video of him and his crew laughing at the body of a suicide victim to his largely young fanbase. I guess everyone just moved on from that.
I had one the other day where it asked me to select all of the mountains or hills so I did and it told me “no please select all of the photos” as if I missed one. The rest of the photos were of roads and stuff, but one of them had a bridge that… Continue reading What was the worst CAPTCHA you had to do?

Controlling lightning. There are times when I wish I could hold my hands out like Palpatine and have lightning actually come out or throw thunderbolts like Zeus. I think teleportation is the most useful superpower however.
Was seeing a girl for a while, she said she didn’t want to see me anymore, I go on hinge a week later and (unknowingly) send her best friend a like as if she was a random person (which I thought she was). She accused me of homie hopping and I’ve had zero interaction with… Continue reading What’s the biggest coincidence you’ve ever experienced?
It’s literally an instinct, born out of biology The same could be asked of why women (in general) want a relationship rather than just a hook up.
This isn’t a direct answer to the question, but this seems like you’re asking for advice. Learning coping mechanisms and therapy can help with feelings such as this because you’ll always come across moments where you’ll be happy. Even as someone with depression I have my happy moments. It may seem bleak and difficult after… Continue reading What’s something that reminds you of when you were genuinely happy and how do you deal with it if you know you won’t ever be that happy again?
Depends on what country and if I wanted to live there, why he would want to live there, if we would have a better life in that country, so many ifs here
years ago yes at an old job, they sent out an email to everybody not to be on reddit during work time if it was not work related. They said no discipline would be taken now, but this was the only warning. I was really wasting a lot of time on it so I think… Continue reading was your reddit account investigated by school or work admin and for what reason?
I don’t justify it. I don’t care enough to feel the need to. No, I don’t feel bad. For full context though, I am a true piece of shit.
You know irl when people gather to say nice things to eachother, encourage eachother, vent together..etc , I was wondering if there’s something similar online I hope I explained 😅
The first Transformers movie by Michael Bay. It isn’t perfect, but it is a very solid blockbuster full of action, excitement and a tinge of nostalgia. I was a teenager when the film came out in theaters: the perfect age to consume giant robots that transformed into neat vehicles.
Every president involved in the Iran-Contra Affair. Those criminals are free, pardoned by George H.W. Bush.
By “rarely given any thought,” I do not mean problems that people intentionally ignore or problems that most people know exist and just don’t care about. What are some problems that almost nobody ever thinks about?
This guy I know broke his phone because he was waiting for an inactive player to respawn after three days of them not logging in. The “inactive” logged on just at the nightly reset, and the guy was so mad he smashed his phone on the ground. This game is a text-based precursor to MMOs,… Continue reading What is the biggest fit you have ever seen someone throw over a lost game?
Revenge does not solve the problem, the first may be the last, and the last the first, so tomorrow, you may end up in the same place as you were
Hindsight. If I’d known I would have picked something better.
probation, fine, community service. we all know the first time you get caught is not the first time you’ve stolen
Spotify suggestions algorithm does it’s work, but it shows what u like, It must be an app that suggests really random and good songs.

Peter Stormare as Lucifer in Constantine. To be clear: I love that movie, but it absolutely is not a good movie. But Peter Stormare is the perfect Lucifer.
Somebody book smart can research a town and understand that it’s a very safe place with an exceptionally low crime rate. They will travel to that town in peace and enjoy being able to have their guard down. This person will be mugged when the wrong person spots them. Somebody street smart will be able… Continue reading What are examples of being book smart versus street smart?
As a grown up, my needs are too much. I would love some funky socks, a stuffed stocking, and maybe a new set of pajamas from him though.
My cousin, Vinny. On paper, a bunch of law jargon is obnoxious to sit through, but it was great!
Benefits: See what happens in hellholes like Russia and pretty much all Islamic nations when you criticize the government or religion. Being put in jail for expressing your opinion is wrong and this is why freedom of speech is a good thing. What do you hate most about banning and censorship on free speech platforms?… Continue reading What are the benefits and incentives of free speech to you? What do you hate most about banning and censorship on free speech platforms?
Personal finances, I studied it in college, worked in the sector, and know exactly how to do”the right thing” with my income. And yet, I fail to follow my own advice.
It creates conversation and makes a statement about how society doesn’t take climate change seriously – the insinuation being we waste money on our vanity but can’t find the money to combat climate change. I think it’s dumb, there’s many legitimate targets if you want to make a statement about climate change, art shouldn’t be… Continue reading What is the point of the climate control people ruining pieces of art by dumping things on them?
This is the first time as an adult living in a detached house vs an apartment building. I make a point to always wave and say hi to the neighbours as we walk down the street. The simple act of acknowledgement can turn someone’s day around, and in turn I’ve loved the times where they’ve… Continue reading How have you created community with your neighbors or how have they included you in community?
The one I’m in now; medicine. It just would’ve been easier if money weren’t an issue. Coming from a poor background, I went into a lot of debt to go to med school, and that was even with some scholarships and going to a state school.
That’s what it does, I remember a long time ago there was an article in the papers about a dude who started fapping in a coffee shop, police came and he fought the police, while fapping
Do you require discord? If that’s the case (for whatever reason), I’d put some constraints on it. If you have an iPhone, you can use the screen time setting. If you have a Windows computer, you can download the cold turkey app. Delete it if you don’t need it. Instead of chatting with people on… Continue reading To those who have had an addiction to discord, how did you stop?
Somewhat repaired the Ozone, realising that most jobs don’t matter and that robots can do everything better. Also, that Amazon is amazing.
A good therapist won’t share or judge, they’re also probably desensitised so will look at the situation with clarity. It might be very upsetting to a friend, or they might share it with someone you don’t want to know about it etc
She was exotic, smart, and attractive, and I married her because I believed she needed someone like me to stand by her and support her. There, I completely misread. All she wanted was a stepping stone to high position and substantial wealth, whereas all I wanted was a family.
I received an invitation to Thanksgiving dinner at my future in-laws a few days before my wife and I got married. I stepped forward to offer to bring a Caesar salad because we all brought something. When I phoned a restaurant, they gave me the actual recipe. It asked for five garlic cloves, but at… Continue reading What is your funniest Thanksgiving story?
A good way to try things you might not otherwise try. I don’t like the idea of getting a dish I might not like because then I feel like I wasted my money and wasted the food. But if I go to a buffet (especially a buffet with lots of different types of dishes) then… Continue reading What’s something you love about buffets?
If it’s a free game, sure, devs gotta make that money, but if I pay an upfront price and you still try to nickel and dime more out of me? Naw, fuck that
The Exorcist. I was raised catholic and my parents assured me this type of thing really happens as I was watching. I had all sorts of fear as a child due to Catholicism. I literally used to fear dying in my sleep if I’d been naughty because that meant eternity in hell. Freeing yourself of… Continue reading Which horror movie made you shit your pants?
My dad is demented, he pissed himself at the table and my mom beat him with a broomstick, I am not happy.
Nothing. I’m not so arrogant or foolish to think I’m somehow perfect or even the imperfect best possible partner. And frankly, anyone who does think they are the perfect partner fundamentally isn’t, because everyone can always improve, so if you aren’t working to improve yourself, you aren’t perfect, but if you think you’re perfect, why… Continue reading What makes you the perfect partner that you believe is incomparable to anyone else?
In the Navy, my barracks roommate was kind of dumb. Not only did I convince him that dragons used to be real creatures that were hunted and slain to extinction during the middle ages, but one week later, I convinced him that he was the one who told me about it. I had a whole… Continue reading What’s the best prank you’ve every played on someone?
Years ago I fell asleep on the couch. I walked around my house in my dream. Looked like I was really walking around. Like my mind made all the details of my house crystal clear. And my eyes were cracked open a little so I knew I was laying on the couch while I was… Continue reading What was your weirdest lucid dream?
If you could go anywhere in the world for a week, where would you go? Travel is a topic that opens into a lot of other topics i think
Trying to flip Columbus day into national indigenous people’s day is stupid, it’s a shitty middle ground that gives everyone something to bitch about and nobody anything to be happy about. Either have both or end Columbus and give NIPD a real date.
It was always “The monster in the closet” for me. Possibly because I had a solid bed foundation – no “underneath” to speak of. But since they seem basically the same idea, I always just had this abstract vision of a large, vaguely humanoid shadow. No real features just darker darkness from within the darkness.
personally mine is Cobra Kai, it inspired me to really take karate irl, and i really enjoyed the story of the show. Lemme know yall’s favorite shows on Netflix so i can get some more recommendations of what shows to watch!
Sometimes women who are mean in public are little kittens at home. For some, its a defense mechanism to get what they feel is respect and prevent being walked on, while out in public.
I make them stand there while I explain why they shouldn’t have done what they did, and what the proper course of action would have been, and how they can do better in the future.
Cranberry sauce. To be honest I eat that stuff year round, not every meal or even every week but every month certainly. Goes just as well with spaghetti and meatballs as it does with a fancy thanksgiving dinner and it’s a great palate breaker.
Brittney Spears, Prince, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Elvis, those are probably the main ones
I volunteered for a no-kill shelter back in college. Maybe not quite who you’re asking about, but at least close. The animals we did put down were incredibly sick or injured, and usually in a lot of pain. Yes, it was sad that their previous owners let them get that bad, but there was a… Continue reading For people who euthanize animals/dogs for their job, is it something you get used to or you still get really sad or cry?
For me as in about me as a person? My wife. For me, as in who I think the authority is on one of my favorite topics? Idk.
Naples – I got a cold that made me have headaches while flying since, the hotel was terrible, I witnessed a migrant round up, the traffic was… terrible. Pompeii was worth it but I have never been so glad to be going home 🤣🤣🤣 Who knew I would miss trees this much (hardly any trees… Continue reading What vacation did you think was gonna be cool but actually wasn’t?
Because there is a demand and people should be able to do what they want. It should be legal and regulated like it is in Nevada. I would not be going to a brothel, myself.
Thanksgiving wins, because it increasingly encompasses black Friday which, while ostensibly for buying Christmas presents, is basically a thanksgiving tradition. Almost everything about Christmas except for the ritual of opening presents is contained within thanksgiving.
I don’t know how the scoring works really, I guess you receive karma from upvotes, kinda like with Jodel. Anyways.
Everything!! We picked up a cheap foreclosure and we drive cheap cars. All the things that I do, I wish I would have learned sooner. The last couple years I bought a couple welders. I use those way more than I thought I would
the concept of death. i mean, all i know from experience is being alive, i’m in no hurry to be done with that. like, it’s it a suffocating void or just a lack of anything?
Carrie. Being locked in a closet for hours at a time while listening to a psycho mother 🧑 pray and sing hymns will destroy you psychologically. She’ll have to resistance in killing anyone, also, she’ll be so controlled by rage. Eleven, a sweetheart, has friends around who can relate to her (somewhat sans the powers).… Continue reading Who would win in a fight? Carrie from Carrie (Steven King) or Eleven from Stranger Things?
Giving constantly without receiving anything in return. Being taken for granted, to the point where I was expected to just “deal with” the way I was being treated and laughed off when I expressed concerns. If there’s no mutual respect and effort, if it’s all one person doing all the work while the other gets… Continue reading What made you cut off a friendship?
One of my classmates was diabetic and needed to check his blood sugar but with the age we were at he had to do it at the nurses office, the teacher got angry because he got up and left to do it when she said no when he asked. Apparently she didnt believe him
You commit suicide you get stuck in limbo. You will be on earth forever, with no one to talk to and nothing to do except watch the world around you go on forever. You will pray for death and death won’t come and you won’t even realize you’re already dead
Seek out jobs you enjoy; explore hobbies, socialize with fun people; some volunteer, some run for local office, some mentor others; some take vacations, or go camping… Work towards fitness and financial goals
An unbiased analysis of human evolution leads one to conclude that different human groups evolved differently due to different selection pressures, and any serious account of the world needs to take that into consideration.
I had an LVAD for a year (Google it), and metal detectors could kill me. I had to stay away from magnets even, so conversations were weird when I had to visit a courthouse and had to bypass the security measures. I had to go through a totally different entrance after explaining that if they… Continue reading what is the weirdest thing that stopped you from passing through a metal detector?
A sense of belonging. It’s the feeling of being part of a group. Even if that sense of belonging is an illusion, it’s a human need notheless. Even if it’s cheering for a team that you have never even seen for real and that doesn’t even know you exist, you still get that little feeling… Continue reading What’s the value to watching sports beyond pure entertainment?
For context, I was visiting my family on a long weekend (college classes were canceled for a wellness day). My grandfather is battling late stage liver cancer and is ending near of life.

Why or why not?
Assassins Creed Unity Arno vs Bellec. Fantastic set pieces, fun fight, and idk if it was a bug or not but it turned off the indicator for a counter or parry so you has to stay alert and time it right yourself. Fun fight and cinematic in the right ways. And more recently Thor from… Continue reading Out of any video game you’ve ever played what is or was your favorite boss fight ever?
While I was in twenties it was did I spend a night surounded by people I like and by how much I’m hungover next morning. If I was really hungover I probably made some regrettable decisions but who cared. Nowdays it’s did meet someone influential in my field who will be beneficial in future, made… Continue reading How do you measure the success of a night out?
It’s going to sound cheesy, but: quiet moments. It doesn’t matter if I’m pooping at work in the middle of a busy day (seriously, what a joy) or just reading a book in my bed. Just a quiet moment.
Arm and leg hair. When I was a kid, I was entranced by my mother’s hair, and always wanted to stroke them or brush against them, which made my mother very annoyed with me. My father doesn’t have much hair on his arms and legs and it’s not fun to stroke his. Somehow, I find… Continue reading What do you think is the weirdest thing people find attractive?
Pull up netflix on your phone or something if your PC is monitored. Always look busy, even when you arent is some advice I picked up from the old guys.
Rub up against me, lay down next to me, follow me around and meow incessantly. She lets me know when she wants my attention, make no mistake about it.
When the sun expands near the end of its lifecycle, it will swallow up the earth. Honestly, you could have googled that.
My father thought he turned a pan off when he really left it on low. I woke up to my cat freaking tf out looking for a way out of the house, running accross me with claws out. House was smoky as shit.
As long as the fine print specifies. And even then, good luck taking a corporation to court over anything like this. They could change the ad or tell you to screw off, and probably get away with it if they think the negative publicity is worth it.
My mom is going our of town with her husband, my sister is house hunting, the rest of my family loves in other states, so I’m bringing lunch to a buddy of mine that’s laid up with a knee injury so we can get high and watch old B-horror.

Simon Whistler. Dude is a great. One of my favorite hosts/presenters but he’s got so many damn shows and channels that it’s annoying AF trying to keep up with them all. 😆
That we’re so divided and people care more about our race, gender, etc than the fact that we’re people
Well are we talking visual or spoken? Even at that the whole damn movie is awesome Thanks Ahole gonna have to watch it again now
People are not objects that can be claimed by somebody else. If she likes you and you are interested in her, pursue a relationship if you want to. Your friend can’t call dibs on a human being. If it’s a situation where she just dumped him and is now looking toward you, I’d say give… Continue reading What to do if a girl likes you but your friend likes her?
That is only the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. The meaning of life was almost done with calculations at one point but we had to restart.
For all the talk of “people are too sensitive these days” there’s way too many people who just WANT to offend. It’s so cringe. You wanna offend? Why? What is wrong with you? Why do you wanna just be a village nuisance? Do not be afraid to offend, but stop trying to offend. Anyways, sure.… Continue reading Could the Movie “Blazing Saddles” be remade today with little to no alterations to the script? Why or why not ?
We’re resilient and adaptable, so I think the species will probably persist in some way for quite a bit longer. We may have partial resets every now and then, but I see us eventually expanding our civilization to other celestial bodies within the solar system before we finally kick the bucket.
Horror for sure, got a subscription to Shudder and everything, which is basically netflix for purely horror for anyone not familiar with it who also loves all kinds of spooky things
I kinda just smile like an idiot with a dash of feeling awkward about having the attention of everyone in the room. But at the same time, I am grateful.
If you are planning to live there long term, consider having bedroom and laundry room on the first floor instead of other floors. Once you grow old and have a bad knee, you’ll be thankful you don’t need to climb stairs all day.
You’ll hear her voice in your mind, brilliantine and fragile, “come, make love to me.” Y’know, as one does. Honestly, it’s deafening. /comedy
In some ways, yes. In other ways, no. It turns out that humans are not actually capable of creating a perfect system. There will be flaws with whatever social system we implement.
Curious about a few things How many hours a day you use it? Did you experience any neck or eye strain? What are screen resolutions like?
I mine to say we’re not always nice, but we’re kind.

And I’ve also seen people say the rudest shit while trying… Continue reading how do you feel about new yorkers?
I celebrate still, well not really celebrate. Us natives/aboriginals will find any excuse to cook turkey & stuffing. I also see a lot of other natives/aboriginals talk a lot of crap about it, but still have thanks giving supper.
I’m Prolife in a scientific and moral stand point, i don’t think it’s right to end the life of another human, regardless of what developed stage the baby is in. I’m Prochoice as in, it’s not my choice to make for another woman. I think abortion is wrong, i don’t respect abortion, but i respect… Continue reading Prochoice or Prolife, why?
I believe that it’s ironic when Americans say they have “more freedom” than other countries, given that the facts bear out the exact opposite The US has more of its population in prison than any other country on the planet
It’s gorgeous. Seriously, the geographic diversity in the US is insane and few countries have as much from this standpoint within their borders as the US. From plains to mountains to forests to deserts…from oceans to rivers to lakes, get out and see the country. There’s plenty to criticize and dislike about the US, but… Continue reading What is a good reason to live in the United States?
Well, you see, I’m a forgetful fuckin’ nincompoop. Doesn’t matter if it’s in person or remote. That’s my biggest problem.
Wie oft wurdest du schon geschlagen, verdammt und feig verraten? Wie oft schon einst belehrt, dein Glaube sei verkehrt? Die Freundin ließ dich sitzen, im Knast da wirst du schwitzen.

Aber nichts auf dieser Welt das… Continue reading What lyrics would best describe your life/feelings right now?

Nothing. Almost everything sold on Black Friday is a made up sale, you can check camelcamelcamel to confirm it. I disappoint friends and family with this every year. And if you get a discounted TV, the TVs are cheaper versions advertised as the more expensive TVs but with a different model number. Same for Cyber… Continue reading What are you planning to get on Black Friday?
I don’t think it’s funny, but I matched with a gal a few years ago who just needed a date for Christmas dinner with her family.

We couldn’t add fennel to anything one year because we had a guest with an allergy. Father in law flipped his lid about it, drunk as could be.

Puss In Boots, favorite childhood character. Ellie from The Last Of Us. She’s the type of person that I’d want as a favorite, especially in the first game.
I have two possible picks, they’re very different movies so I think I’m safe: “Blue” by Krzysztof Kieślowski and “Suspiria” by Dario Argento. I think a common theme is that both films used very bold use of color. With Suspiria that is quite obvious, it’s almost psychedelic in its use of color. Blue is more… Continue reading What is your favorite movie and why?
Insurance is the devillll. I don’t think any claim I’ve ever made has came through. Appliances, vehicles, always getting the shaftttt over here.
I’m pretty young so i don’t have the “wisdom of life”, but practicing mindfulness is a great way to be more realistic about your life. Try to take a little time every day to appreciate things you have, small or big
perhaps not mainstream on reddit is “humanity is neat and they’ll achieve lots more, colonize this galaxy, etc”
Practically there is no brown privilege, the same way you can’t be racist toward a white person. It’s about power dynamics. Colorism is unfortunately still prevalent worldwide and thus anyone with darker skin is discriminated against as long as their skin is darker than average. It sucks but until we all accept it this can’t… Continue reading What really is brown privilege?
Working customer service / RMA department of a big store here in Denmark. Either you please the company, the customer, rarely both, but you yourself are never really pleased. Best coworkers to have though, we all knew the shit we had to go through, so we could laugh it all off together.
I read a story where a man was found dead face down on the couch. They couldn’t figure out how he died. When they did a postmortem they found he was electrocuted. Upon further investigation they had found two orbital disc sanders in the couch cushions. He was using them as a sex device. Once… Continue reading Fans of the macabre. What are the most embarrassing ways one might die?
I’m not in school anymore so 🤷🏻♀️ but as someone who takes the train to go to a pretty big city everyday, I sometimes worry about terrorism in the train station or the tourist spots I have to go through to get to uni. Also my region gets flooded every other fall, so it keeps… Continue reading Non-Americans, what’s it like to not worry about mass shootings?
The US Supreme Court has ruled that the State has no responsibility to protect individuals, which is also why police, firefighters, etc can’t be sued for failing to save you. Ultimately your safety is your responsibility. As the Dalai Lama says, if someone attacks you with a gun, it would be prudent to shoot back… Continue reading Why can’t gunshot victims sue the State for Weak Gun Laws?
Really good. Granted, the story could have been better and the bar for a good Sonic game is set pretty low thanks to Forcee, but Frontiers was great.
Of course. Most of the movie is set at Christmas, and Christmas plays a major part. There are presents, Christmas songs, an office Christmas party. One of the leads is even called Holly!
I’ve watched every episode and the acting is pretty good. But a lot of it is filler, let’s be honest.
Beans and rice. You can bang it it out in no time. It isn’t specific to any culture, so if you want to make it X, sure, if you want to make it Y, sure. Do you like Mexican, do you like Indian, do you like Ethiopian…? If you like rice, and beans, someone will… Continue reading What’s an easy recipe for a someone living alone and sucks at cooking?
The Colossal squid, Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni, are mysterious and the largest of all the cephalopods. Predators of the deep with shredding beaks, rotating and serrated arm hooks, and basketball sized eyes with built-in lights.
It used to mean security, but this push to digitize money means that I could not control it, so that would take my personal decisions out of the mix.
“ I carried on like the wayward man, with my bloodshot eyes and my shaky hands, because I just couldn’t open up “
I feel like aliens with ability to invade in our lifetime, would have already if they cared to. If it does get to that point, there’s not much ideological difference between them doing so and one nation invading another. Humans are scarier because we are wired to have emotional responses to each other, and already… Continue reading What freaks you out more, alien invasion or world wide nuclear war?
I currently have a pretty laid back job working overnights. We’re allowed to do homework, read, etc as long as we still get the job done. What’s a good side gig that I can do from a laptop? Nothing that requires video or voice since I still need to be present at my current job.
I want kids. Adopt, natural, idc I know I’m meant to be a mother so if they don’t want kids that’s gonna be my deal breaker. (But like I’m not gonna be the “how many kids do you want?” on the first date that be really weird)
It speaks to your soul, not that I have one, but it brings a glimpse of light into the eternal darkness. Or maybe like it has so much flavour you can’t quite figure out what it is that you like about it.
Time-travel. I would personally ask my past self to do better in life and to not make the same mistakes as myself lmao, but also it would be cool to see how the past and future would be like in order to help human society improve as a whole by taking advice from people from… Continue reading If you were a super-hero, what powers would you have?
Dang, I wish I could help. Unfortunately, I only know ways thst woukd get them arrested and hospitalized.
Food. There aren’t really any things we typically buy more than any other nation, aside from tea of course, which I’m not particularly a fan of anyway.
In my Thailand trip, went for a massage. Everything was good, the ambience, the nature, the girl, and the Start 🥺 She let me touch herself, everything was good when I started with her back. I don’t need to embarrass myself more
Drama, grew up in a bad area where we settled every beef by trying to kill or rob whoever we disliked. I almost got robbed multiple times but never actually took anything out of my pockets, I just booked it. But I actually had to drop out of school because the guy I was beefing… Continue reading What did you hate the most about your high school times?
I’m big and tall. Anytime I raise my voice or get excited about anything, I get that classic “what’s he going to do” look or people bracing for something. I am not an angry person at all, but I take special care not to raise my voice regardless of whether it’s completely innocent or positive/encouraging.
At Chinese buffets, there’s a flat fee for takeout. It’s by weight. So, instead of grabbing that entree container, grab the largest soup container they have. They’ll charge you for soup, which is significantly cheaper than the entree. But, use it to fill with the food instead of soup.
“The bride looks good, even if she does look the size of hiroshima explosion”… Best man speech at one I was at years ago. You could hear pin drop in that room after that.
I once shared a room with Clinton. I shook hands with George W. Bush and shared an elevator with Obama, as well as some light conversation. I am nothing, but by some strange coincidence, I have had three presidents in a row. I can’t remember what was said in the elevator for the life of… Continue reading What would you do if you met the President?
In my freshman year of high school, a girl kept calling me ugly. So one day I started announcing to the class that something smelled bad and started looking around for it. I kept that up for a couple of weeks. Then one day I loudly announced to everybody that it was that girl and… Continue reading What’s the meanest thing you’ve ever said to someone?
If you have to ask, you dont. You will either trust the person again and their actions alone will dictate this, or you wont. Odds are they will cheat again. Just the odds. So, its your choice. Ive cheated, theres nothing the other person could have done. And id have cheated again on that person.… Continue reading How do you get past cheating?
Let’s be brutally honest here people. I’ll start. Mines got ball sweat marks. It’s got pee stains of dribbles, some skid marks from a sweaty ass and pooping multiple times a day. It’s all withered up. Every day these things go through hell.
Doja Cat. She went by “Zandy” before. I knew her through Facebook meme groups. She was in lots of them. Always shit posting. And she’d be in Skype calls all the time with us, making memes and being shitters. She made a song called Bitch I’m a cow and it blew up, then she stopped… Continue reading Which celebrity did you personally know before they became famous?
I am standing in my own personal heated waterfall, my horse runs on exploding dinosaurs, and in my home I can control the weather and banish the night. The shitty versions of these things are what only kings used to have.
A few years ago I was playing Pictionary with my wife and her parents. When it was my turn I had to draw “the bearded lady.” I’m terrible at drawing, so I came up with some stick figure with boobs and a beard with a large triangle behind it (it was supposed to be a… Continue reading What’s the funniest thing experienced in life?
astrid in spiritfarer. i’d had her on the boat for so long, she’d felt like a serious fixture. the game does such a good job of making each goodbye feel meaningful, even when getting them to the point of saying goodbye is your job.
Not me but a guy I work with had a tooth drilled. A couple years later they found that part of the bit had broken off inside the tooth, which eventually worked its way out the bottom of the tooth and through his jaw.
I would publicly prove I am god, tell everyone they fucked it all up, and kill myself. At least everyone would be on the same page then. 🤷
Socialists. People will be all, “OMG this politician is a socialist!” and then it turns out they just mean he thinks maybe everyone should have health care, not that he wants the means of production to be owned by the community as a whole. Don’t get my hopes up, you jerks.
To name a few there are The United States of America, Bahrain, China, Turkey, Canada, Morocco and North Korea.
My mom is definitely Linda from Bob’s Burgers down to the accent. Except instead of running a restaurant she ran a commercial cleaning company. Even weirder is I had an aunt that was nearly comparable to Gail, except instead of having a bunch of fake rich boyfriends she had a bunch of real rich husbands.… Continue reading What fictional characters best describes both of your parents?
I never got there in the first place and surpise, surprise I got the girl. Be direct from the beginning guys, don’t be a fucken pussy. Women respect guys who go after what they want.
None. God. Can we please be done with these remakes and reboots, and just create something original instead? Every time a movie or series tries to “remake” an old version, the fans of the old one are outraged at the inconsistencies and changes. Their voices get drowned out by accusations of racism or sexism or… Continue reading What dead Game, Movie, Book, or TV series deserves a revival?
Don’t generalize; this isn’t some sort of universal trend. You know what is a trend, though? Being able to confide in your partner, irrespective of gender.
I never do it actively as an activity, I just keep on top of it passively, so I suppose the answer to this question is “whenever I need to”
I dunno about “GREATLY” improve, but: If it’s true, tell your partner “I love you”, quietly and a bit randomly, and mix up the ways in which you tell them. Cut a sandwich in the shape of a heart. As part of a silly note in a lunchbox. Just wandering up to them and hugging… Continue reading What is something small you can do every day to greatly improve your relationship?
As the saying goes, light a fire for a man and he’ll be warm for a night, light a man on fire and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life. TLTR: I turned on the heater.
Trees are the foundation to our life. No trees mean little oxygen, and little oxygen means little life. Trees are essential to keeping us alive, and planting them helps us have them in the furue.
My dog isn’t very stupid, here’s something surprising she did. I have a fenced in backyard. I let her out the back door and she knocks when she’s ready to come in. One day, I didn’t hear her. So, she escaped the backyard and came to the front door. She knocked on that to be… Continue reading What is the stupidest thing your pet has ever done?
They’re pretentious and arrogant, they think the sun shines out of their arseholes, and honestly I can’t stand them. Having said that, we have a millennia long history, and at this point we’re like siblings, and I love them.
For me, true freedom means being entirely happy to be alone and not to depend on other people to make you feel good, because at that point you start to not care about what other people think about you and you can concentrate fully on working on being a better version of yourself. P.S. English… Continue reading What is true freedom to you?
Not a celebrity, but my dad made a commercial for his job. They had him smile and wave and we were like, “Dad? Smiling????”
I didn’t take biology and autonomy. If I had to guess, it would be because we have gone through the same thing for quite some time, and the older we get, the more we repeat a similar process, making us grow tired of doing said things. It is just us growing tired of the same… Continue reading What are the biological reasons behind why we get grumpier with age?
No I just saw a post about fine wine and I thought I would make this Fine wine = Better with Age Fine Milk = Worse with Age Edit: formatting
Seishun,青春 (blue spring) in Japanese – basically used to describe the wonderful experiences unique to Youth and childhood. Falling in love for the first time, going on a wacky road trip with friends, getting into hijinks, etc.
The sad part is, people have begun to rationalise their shitty behaviour nowadays, so if you called what they’re doing immature other than calling them toxic, they’d just think that you’re too much of a baby or is immature yourself
Wife forgot to turn in a required piece of paper for her very well paying job. Would take months to get it again and she would lose her active job. She remembers an hour before it was due at night. Internet went down for the whole city. I figured out the internet was fine but… Continue reading What was your most badass moment?
Currently truly at peace, my head is empty my body is buried in my bed so warm and cozy, it’s raining like there’s no tomorrow outside, i can hear my mum and dad in the other room joking around and having tea, my kitten is rolled up and purring and sleeping nuzzled in to my… Continue reading When’s the last time you remember being truly at peace and why?
I don’t like being around others either. I just prefaced the question like that because whenever you ask generally “what is there to live for”, they all answer “friends” or “family” Trying to determine what there is to live for beyond other people.
People not fully legally responsible for themselves should not have any social media account, uncontrolled electronic communication devices or services, or Internet access. At all. These are for adults: they are the wild west of information sharing and communication. If children wouldn’t be allowed to go into a bar at midnight and go have an… Continue reading What is something we can all do to protect children from exploitation?
When you are the only sober person around and everyone has to depend on you to get them home safely. Because now as far as they are concerned, you have the power to forever change the trajectory of their lives.

Saliva Edit: nevermind, salvia is actually illegal now in most places, from my understanding, in the states, it can be considered a misdemeanor if you are caught with it.
That every single Hispanic knows both English and Spanish. The only damn language I know is English and if one more person assumes I speak Spanish just because my last name is Lopez, I am going to scream.
Taking reproductive rights away from women If you are referring to abortion, I disagree. There was a time when owning another human as property was considered a right. Nowadays, we scoff at such an idea. I think abortion is going to be the same way. Arguing against gender-affirming care for trans people I unfortunately do… Continue reading What are we doing right now that future generations will find weird and abhorrent?
People buy drugs from drug dealers who get the drugs from drug suppliers who get the drug from drug producers, then those drugs kill people when they take too much. In the case of fentanyl specifically, simply making contact with your skin is enough to cause an overdose. This is all common sense, and common… Continue reading How are so many Fentanyl overdoses happening and how exactly are people being exposed to it?
When she sits around the house she sits around the house. She don’t wear a Mumu she wears the circus tent. Buffets take out insurance against her. She bleeds gravy. She has her own ZIP code. When she goes swimming the Sea Shepherd’s defend her from Whalers. She has been mistaken for a manatee. Blobfish… Continue reading How fat is yo mama?
I should think that the person who committed the murders has blood on their hands. Used to live in Colorado Springs for years. It is a fairly conservative area, especially for a reasonable sized city, but it was also pretty diverse. Not exactly an area where I would expect a hate crime. The city does… Continue reading Who has blood on their hands in the mass shooting in the LGBTQ bar in Colorado Springs?
I girl I was hooking up with wanting me to “Fuck her face”. Not my words, but hers, and she really enjoyed it.
I wanted that “pirate eye” thing Zero Cool had in “Hackers” just so I could see whatever the fuck it was. What was it?! (Yes, I know it was some experimental display, but we never saw what he actually used it for.)
Depending on why the switch happens, yes. Is it because the person switching is toxic and people are realizing who they are? Until I find out the real reason, I’m not gonna trust a person like that
I’m really good at games such as dark souls, good enough armor is basically useless, Witcher, and god of war for a few examples
The Nazis were not socialists, they just used the name because it was popular at the time. Hitler is even on record insisting that his socialism is very different from the way everyone else uses the word.
I don’t keep myself from doing it, it’s winter so I’m bulking, everyone is. It’s the best time of the year to be in a caloric surplus to put on muscle, even if it’s not a clean bulk at times, because it’s winter and you have clothes on when out lol.
If you’re talking about a NOISY muffler, it serves to protect the integrity of genetics in the human race, by serving as the opposite of a natural mating call. You see, when females of the human species hear a fart-can exhaust on a Civic, their drive to mate and propagate the species dries up and… Continue reading What is the appeal of a Civic with a muffler?
Wasn’t all that bad, but an ER doctor was setting my “mallet finger” and used the wrong splint. When I got home, I googled it, and saw it did not appear to be the correct splint, so I went to my own doc and she said yeah, if I kept that splint on for the… Continue reading What’s the worst medical mistake that’s ever happened to you?
‘Bomber’ by Len Deighton. The story of one mission by the RAF over Germany. Every horror and stupidity of war wrapped into one book. The first scene is an RAF crew cheering because they have just learned that they will be going up with crews flying older, slower planes. They know the Germans will attack… Continue reading Which book/movie/show is the saddest?
The first time I met my wife’s family was at a family birthday party. As soon as we walked in her SIL screamed that her baby was choking. Everyone froze. I worked several years as a lifeguard, so I immediately ran over to the baby and did the baby heimlich maneuver and a finger sweep… Continue reading How have you instantly won over a partner’s family?
Accurately budget. Live within your means. So simple, and it works amazing. Simple =/= easy. It can be very difficult sometimes. But it is simple advice.
Depends on which one. My childhood friend: I went back to New York during the summer to spend a week with him after not seeing him for a year. He ditched me and left me to watch his little sister. One of my closest friends: He didn’t get treatment for his alcoholism and killed himself… Continue reading How did you lose your closest friend?
I use a home made honey garlic and dill sauce. It’s by far my favorite. But some other good ones, Honey Mustard, BBQ Thai, and simple salt and pepper are my go to’s.
You know. I thought about this while being annoyed at people who were using the passing lane to commute, which is what my answer would have been. But come to think of it I was speeding at the time.
Trash collecting and recycling. I think many of us would find it boring, repetitive, tedious and underpaid, kudos to the people who work in recycling dump

When wearing heels, I typically avoid places with extremely smooth floors that can make you easily slip. Some of my heels I have added stick-on show grips in case I am in a situation where there are smooth floors. I’m also careful with outside areas such as grass where your heels can dig into the… Continue reading What should you avoid when wearing high heels?
I was having fun with his mom. Yeah… I was showing her how to go all UP UP, DOWN, LEFT, DOWN, LEFT, UP again… Someone who doesn’t read game like a chad, that was gamer talk about how to teach someone play a video game.
I have a freelance contract this year for a task that is boring as hell. I spend about as much time waiting to do something as I spend doing something. I can’t always do serious focused work in the waiting times, but I can goof off on reddit, because if I walk away in the… Continue reading Why do you use Reddit?
He has many things rattling around in his mind all at once. Nothing gets sustained, undivided attention. Nothing gets done well. As he says himself, he has aspergers with adhd. Must be incredibly intense for anyone working with him.
When people choose not to comprehend something. What I mean is people who have something explained to them (verbally, written, however) and they actively choose not to comprehend it or just choose to ignore it. Example would be where I work in an ER and we have certain policies that people are expected to follow.… Continue reading What really grinds your gears?
That’s not a family secret lmao, I meant something your family is generations have kept to yourselves. Maybe murderers, did you family keep slaves in the past, money laundering, maybe mafia related shit. Something really bad
Understand why doing this thing will benefit me, and focus on the benefit, rather than the act The earlier you can do this, the better, because it doesn’t really work when you’re doing something last minute It also helps you prioritize
I was on vacation with my best friends. At the time, one of them was in a relationship even though he was fuckin every girl around him. One night he entered in my room and sit on the side of my bed.

not trying to say that all and only women do it but ive seen em make crazy plots in order to get another girl on trouble or infamy, doesnt matter the gender, bad is bad ok? but ive seen chicks do that mastermind stuff and thats just creepyy
It’s not about the music itself. It’s about both partner’s ability to recognize a simple fact: You like things that I don’t and that’s OK. Seriously, the amount of people that take offense to opinions on personal tastes is silly. Don’t yuck someone else’s yum.
They’re public figures, not because they are good or powerful, because they have followers. So technically no public figure is hated by everyone, even if they are objectively foul.
This is complicated to pinpoint, but let me just mention that recently I started using goal-setting worksheets to plan S.M.A.R.T. goals for the bigger picture things that need aiming toward and accomplishment in life. It is helping me take action, change my routines and establish good habits by seeing the steps that I need to… Continue reading How do you start to become a better person?
Work on yourself. Whether it’s eating better, working out, find a new hobby..etc. just keep busy and don’t have any contact with that person temporarily (or permanently if it didn’t end well)
The fact that you can’t disagree with anything at all without being labeled as the enemy (there are many specific terms, but “enemy” is the overall theme). Eventually, I just agree that we are enemies and leave it at that. If you want an example, I’ll never agree with the blanket phrase ACAB. And that… Continue reading What’s the biggest issue people have with “woke” culture?
For me, it was Alita: Battle Angel. From the way that everyone one Reddit gushed about it, I figured that it was going to be at least good if not great. Nope. Bad acting with passible VFX. Just a very mediocre experience.
Basic cell phones could only play very basic games, call, text and browse the internet in a very shitty way. Smartphones are iPhones and if you’ve ever owned one most of the times you can do everything you can on a laptop on an iPhone
Walked into a place, i don’t remember what the manager asked me, but my reply was : ” i dare you to hire me”. He did. It was the job that changed my personality to the strong and awesome person I am today.
The thing about it is that the name itself is not a problem, but socially, if I give my name, I always have to say it three times: the first time, the second time to clarify they didn’t mishear an expected name, and a third time for confirmation of pronunciation once they realize it is… Continue reading People with unusual names, what is it and why do you like or dislike it?
once they out of elementary school maybe, but once highschool hits, they should be allowed the option monitor it, sure, make sure they’re not doing illegal stuff, but keeping your kid off it is a great way to never talk to them
Burger King giving me cold food that sat on the back counter because the workers were busy talking and fucking around. Sonic because that is the worst food poisoning I ever had in my life and the one near me hires tweakers who never know the menu.
Is this really your takeaway? Serious question. Is your takeaway from a silver-spoon fed billionaire taking over the Town Crier of our time and then whining like a cunt when it doesn’t go his way, and trying to destroy our economy as a consequence really your takeaway?
LGR, Adrian’s Digital Basement, Caddicarus, Arcus, Ashens, Daz Games, IAmBrandonFarris, Karl Jobst, Penguinz0, Videogamedunkey, PewDiePie, Gab Smolders, Jacksepticeye, First We Feast, VICE.. Mostly gaming/retro tech content, but I also watch let’s plays, especially survival horror stuff. I keep my subscriptions to a minimum. Quality over quantity.
The presumption that I like them or should like them. It’s not as bad as the opposite gender of the same sentiment, I grant them that, but that is the thing that bothers me most. I only like you if I tell you I like you. And frankly it is approximate to the matter of… Continue reading What is something you hate about your opposite gender?
Depends on the laws of the state/province. Where I live, they can’t allow underage people to consume alcohol on the restaurant premises, regardless of who brings it or pays for it. So card people to find out their age, regardless of this particular situation.
I don’t buy anything during black friday because of how scammy it is now. Companies make worse versions of their products to sell for cheap on black fridays and others raise their prices to then give a huge discount back to the original price. Plus most companies do ‘month-long’ black fridays which defeats the purpose.… Continue reading What black Friday deals are you waiting for?
Was once having sex with a girl who had a bimbo fetish, so she was pretending to be dumb af.

Useful finance stuff. Like how do I do my taxes? How the fuck do investments and mortgages and loans and stuff work? How to make and keep to a budget.

Getting into a car accident or a traffic ticket, on your way into work, when you are picking up a shift, to make MORE money.
Friends of a friend gave their son a grandiose and old-fashioned name (think Bartholomew, Augustus, Reginald – it was along those lines). Their reasoning, “If he chooses to go into business it’ll serve him well to have a distinctive name.”
Right now, a couple hundred thousand would be sweet. I’m not too greedy. House, pay off the woman’s ride and maybe take a staycation at my spot. Ezpz
just moved to LA. In N’ Out burgers are just ok. and their fries are downright bad. Good shakes, tho. Downvote away. I stand by this assessment.
For me it’d be to sail around the world with good friends. Sadly I don’t have the time, money, friends nor any experience with ships.
I’m not a well-liked person. I’m loud and arguably annoying. I try to be kind, and make up for my flaws, and while it’s gotten better as I’ve gotten older, people have always made it obvious they didn’t like me. But being told in a room full of my classmates to “just shut up” when… Continue reading What’s one thing you didn’t know was sad until it happened to you?
Any food if perfection is your goal. Always looking for ways to improve technique and recipe. I really enjoyed sourdough and smoking meat. So many variables that require you to be adaptable. Temperature, humidity, elevation, where the ingredients were grown, etc.
I once found a small version of the doll from Saw at a car-boot sale and got an idea. I cut the hair, removed the bowtie, used nail polish remover to remove the swirls from the cheeks, and painted the eyes jet black, then I laid some groundwork. I didn’t mention it to my friends… Continue reading What is your strangest/craziest paranormal experience?
Argue that since they’re smaller than you they’re obviously ableist, sexist and a misogynist…PROBABLY a racist too. Or at least thats what happened to me

Spontaneously got on a flight to a foreign country to go meet up with a vague online acquaintance. Had never met the person before and there wasn’t much planning. The person just said I was welcome to come so I said, okay might as well and took the flight two days later.
I’ve never not skipped it I did watch the new episode of blue lock yesterday though Anime soccer > real soccer
I am. It comes from a need to be the best because that’s the only way I can cope. If I am second or below, I don’t want to even try. I have to know I can be the best at whatever it is, and I have to pretend any other competitions I may be… Continue reading Are you a competitive person and why? What’s your benchmark?
Feel like I’ve got a bit of an addiction to junk food, in that every day I struggle to reason my way out of just ordering something. My lack of energy after work combined with the ease and speed of delivery means my poor judgment sabotages my diet. I’ve tried to stop it and just… Continue reading What’s that habit you just can’t break?
A new In-N-Out opened near us (North Texas), and it caused a huge stir. Long lines, everyone talking about how great it was they opened one.

Personally, I seem to be very unattracted to an overweight figure. I can be attracted to almost anything, thin or thick hair, short or tall, old or young, but the only thing I’ve never been attracted to is an overweight figure.
Well I was not allowed near the place for legal reasons, but there was a legend that some pervert kept stalking students from the bushed wearing an obviously known grocery store logo plastic bag over his head while breathing heavily. Assuming it has something to do with the plastic bag, the heavy breathing, not the… Continue reading What was the weird urban legend from your college?
When I was young, me and my friends, we went into some spooky uninhabited house in the city just for fun. It was a sunny day and suddenly when we went inside, strong thunder came out of nowhere and we all got so scared by it 😀 We were kids so that’s why we got… Continue reading What is the most horror or eerie thing that has happened to your (asking in horror context)?
I’d recommend that new “All Quiet on the Western Front” movie on Netflix. Like the book it’s based on, it’s pretty bleak. It deviates a bit from the book, of course, but the general tone and feel of it is the same. Some book readers took issue with some of the changes they made, but… Continue reading What are some good movie recommendations?
At some point in the first week of the year, everybody in gym got a tour of both locker rooms as a class. Something about proving neither was better than the other. In the bathroom of the girls’ locker room, someone had soaked a tampon in water and slung it up at the ceiling so… Continue reading What’s the sexiest thing you’ve seen in a school bathroom?
It’s upsetting how much young boys look up to a man who tells them it’s okay to beat women, that women are responsible for their own SA, and who said he moved to Romania because it is easier to r*pe women there. And people who say “I just listen to his show because he has… Continue reading What are your thoughts on Andrew Tate?
I don’t think half as many people twitter as we are leaving to believe. I think journalists use it so the news big it up. Most people arnt that bothered with it. It’s mostly tik tok videos sent to me through WhatsApp now, so I assume all the Internet people are on that.
The Vatican City State, Liechtenstein, San Marino, and Andorra are the smallest ones I’m aware of. I don’t know in which order, but I believe the Vatican City State to be the smallest. Not sure about the rest.
If you use a Neti pot to clear your sinuses, you need to use water that’s been filtered or boiled first. If you use water that hasn’t been sterilized, like tap water, there’s a chance brain eating amoebae which you just shoved up your nose could travel further up and infect your brain.
Rubbing Alcohol, Hand Sanitizer, Vapo Rub, Gasoline, and Makers.
Most of my clothing is black or grey unless it’s a hoodie , I choose comfort over color with hoodies always. I usually wear pajama pants or jeans and a tank top with sweatshirt on top. Occasionally I’ll dress up in a skirt and crop top and do makeup. My main shoes are canvas top… Continue reading What are your clothes and shoes like?
I personally find it a bit silly. How it’s almost mandatory. People get frowned upon if they don’t ip. Whether it’s bad service or not. Even if they do tip and it’s not a lot they still get frowned upon. It’s ridiculous to me. There are some countries where tipping is offensive in itself. Or… Continue reading What do you think of the US tipping culture?
I don’t, because I don’t encounter people with said stuff. ‘Edgy’ really means that somebody looks like a drug dealer or that they were in prison or they’re trashy. So, they’re pretty much hidden away in the back of McDonald’s doing fries and not in professional environments.
Who says you have too. Don’t love yourself. Just look for small things everyday that you LIKE about yourself. Point them out to yourself everyday and go from there. If you go this route, eventually you will be happy, or at least content with yourself. Far more important
Find somebody to be miserable with and move in together. Could be a friend, an SO, a cousin, or anyone really.
Nothing. I mean literally nothing. No, this is not some kind of mental health thing, this is not your therapist telling you to let these things go. No, this is me, a fucked up individual telling you that the best way to fuck with a crap person is to ignore them, not because it’s better… Continue reading What is the perfect thing to say when someone is being rude to you?
Who tf told you that anyone else other than you has any fucking reason to love you?…? If you need it, earn it, even then, it’s not guaranteed We ain’t entitled to anything, ANYTHING
I am already insane. Check out the Reddit username. Well, since I am, sit back and enjoy the fact that no one on Reddit knows what is my real name. 😂😂😂
eh probably, I’ve been nice so yknow t_ocean are you okay, you’ve been posting cryptic stuff
Perception, friend. Life, as a habit, is not a “giving” thing. You don’t gain or lose three things at a time, or in a limited fashion of any kind. You perceive that you have lost a certain set of things because you are making a drama of it. You perceive that you have gained a… Continue reading Why we don’t always get two good things at the same time?
Be kind to those around you. Regardless of how it may seem, we are all lost in our own way, just trying to find our peace. No one really knows what they’re doing or what lays beyond, but that’s okay, because we have each other, so at least we aren’t lost alone.
My significant other has full access to my reddit account. My friends are probably just be amused if they cared. And my family doesn’t even know anything about me so I’m sure quite shocked but once again I don’t think they would care enough.
I don’t believe there is a best sarcastic word. The best sarcasm is how you say it and the meaning behind it. I don’t often fall back on set words or phrases, instead i prefer to be as genuine and creative as possible.
Urinating in nature. It feels right, liberating, frees me from modernities oppressive obsession with plumbing, and it sounds cool. Bonus points if there’s a breeze.
That already is my life. I read, write, play games, take care of myself, and that’s about it. Not too many things to do.
go for a walk in the park. It’s free, you’re outside, you get exercise, you have privacy to talk but aren’t totally alone. Either person can leave at any time, unlike a movie or a restaurant which is really awkward. The date can be as short or as long as both of you want it… Continue reading What is your best first date activity?
I met my newest friend when my best friend introduced me to some of his friends from his old school. I may have fallen in love with one of them, and now me and her and like best friends. The sad part is I know that we will always be just friends, and never anything… Continue reading how did you meet your newest friend?
If there is wood, radiocarbon dating for that. If the building is some kind of stone and the quarry can be located, it might be possible to determine when the stone was quarried from organic evidence at the quarry. There are also more esoteric techniques to measure when some inorganic structure that is buried was… Continue reading How are ancient structures dated?
When I get depressed, I normally feel like I’m rubbish. However, I have a humiliation kink so this can cause me to seek out that kind of sex. I end up getting so degraded that it brings me out of my depression. But it occurs to me that it’s not entirely healthy. And to some… Continue reading How does depression affect your horniness?
The New Adventures of Jack the Ripper Come on, Netflix, what’s the hold up on this?
Not to me, but i’m sure there are men who it does matter to, so no complaint about them enjoying their day
Well, I shunned my father’s side of the family for doing a horrible thing a long time ago and my mother’s side of the family don’t believe in holidays, so I’ll most likely go out and do the same thing I do every Thanksgiving and get me a nice meal at McDonald’s since they’ll be… Continue reading What will you be having for your Thanksgiving meal?
The weapons being sent? Probably either returned or kept by their military. If you’re worried about black markets, I’d worry more about the truckloads of AKs they handed out at random when the Russians first started towards Kyiv. There’s usually some small arms black market activity after wars in Eastern Europe, but I don’t think… Continue reading What will happen to all the weapons being sent to Ukraine after the war?
Some of these might not be too rare, but some random ones I think of as deep cuts: Fall Out Boy – My Heart Is the Worst Kind of Weapon Four Year Strong – Flannel is the Color of My Energy (and/or Paul Revere’s Midnight Ride) Knuckle Puck – Poison Pen Letter The Maine –… Continue reading What are some lesser known but still excellent hit songs?
Fell off a bolting horse full gallop, knocked the air out of my lungs, my hand was bleeding so were my knees, but not to embarrass myself infront of the trainer and other riders I just got back on, laughed it off and continued riding.
When I push my shopping cart (trolley) back to the corral, I always take the time out to straighten them and put the shorts together with the shorts and the long ones with the longs to make it easier for the cart pushers to grab them. Keeps me humble.
Baby, can’t you see I’m calling? A guy like you should wear a warning It’s dangerous, I’m falling There’s no escape, I can’t wait I need a hit, baby, give me it You’re dangerous, I’m loving it Too high, can’t come down Losing my head, spinnin’ ’round and ’round Do you feel me now?

Baseball I can appreciate the skill of football (soccer), the style of basketball, and the athleticism of American football. But I’ve never given a shit about baseball, other than the movie Moneyball.
half life is swimming in the mail, the other half is swimming in the women, when they meet life begins
Breakfast foods. I’ll take a flat top omelet or biscuits and gravy from a little greasy spoon diner over a fancy meal any day, every day Tacos. Late night food trucks or pop-up stands will always be better than what you’d find in whatever dine in place.
I’d change it to anything they wanted. Iv wanted to change my last name. The only good thing to get out if my last name is that a cat clinic goes by the cat name and the humans last name. So I have a kitten (pre-named) Nugget. My last name is Neal.. pronounced like meal… Continue reading If you accepted a cash offer to change your last name, what would you change it to?
I went to Walmart one day to get some groceries. As I pull into the parking lot, another car speeds in, nearly hitting me, and skids to a stop in a sparsely populated section of the lot. I just assumed it was a drunk driver. I get out of my car and take a look… Continue reading What is the most disturbing thing you’ve seen while camping?
I don’t boycott shit. Depriving myself of something I need or enjoy because I disagree with a company’s politics or social stance on something is moronic, and does more to hurt the workers- who have no say in the matter at all, than the dicktweets running things.
Because I have gay thoughts, but I’ve been told my whole life that having gay thoughts is a choice and bad, so rather than examine my beliefs, I convince myself that the gays are trying to maliciously recruit me
The whole point is to make up an objection to abortion, and if you acknowledge sperm as being alive, that makes the whole thing too complicated to put on a bumper sticker.
Stop living his stupid fucked up lifestyle. But realize I now have millions of dollars and just take it easy the rest of my life, go hiking, play videogames, etc, and be glad I never had to work again. Stop being a public figure, change the way I look so Im not as recognizable in… Continue reading You wake up as Andrew Tate, what’s your first move?
the Pope always has it right. The Pope has his own beliefs and ideas, just like every other person. But Popes can undoubtedly make some poor mistakes, just like everyone else in the world. For instance, it seems that the Pope fully supports Russia in their present conflict with Ukraine. As much as we support the… Continue reading What is the one misconceptions about your religion?
She is bipolar and with that comes unpredictable mood swings in which she can be really cruel. I don’t hate her bipolar or her inability to control it. What I hate – is that we’ve been together for awhile, and she doesn’t apologize for it anymore. It has become so normal and has occurred so… Continue reading What about your partner do you find completely unattractive?
I don’t know when or how it started but I became convienced as a kid that some demon or satan himself lived literally underground and might come up through the toilet when I was most inconvienent so I always did my buisness right quick. As a rational adult though of course I no longer believe… Continue reading What did you do while sitting on the porcelain throne before cellphones were a thing?
Specifically, how do large groups of people (eg all the Greek city states) all develop the same language. How do they teach each other new words (especially non-noun words) when they don’t have a pre existing language to teach themselves with?
Probably among the least visited countries are small island nations that are difficult (and expensive) to get to. And especially because of coronavirus, these countries are closed in order to protect their small populations. It is easier to close an island country of course. I’m thinking of Nauru, Palau, Micronesia, Marshall islands, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Tonga… Continue reading What are the world’s least visited countries?
“I can’t leave my toxic family” The cage is only in your mind, plenty of people ditch toxic family members and live a better life for it.

GTA V. Back when I had a real PC (not a MacBook), I would always keep GTA open and minimized, in case I wanted to take a drive.
Things weren’t going well and I started being a dick until she eventually broke up with me. Then I realized I still liked her, a lot, and that I was just completely overwhelmed with stress. It’s been a decade and I still think about her too often.
i’ll go first, and there are a few: I eat lemons, peel and all, vinegar in general (i can literally drink it without flinching) but specifically on popcorn the half crunchy half soggy is good to me, and i love vegetables that taste extra plant like, like kale and brussel sprouts.
Dose. Too low and they get sleepy but still pose a threat, too much and they are dead. Time. Tranqs take minutes to put someone to sleep, minutes that could be used by them to attack you.
Wendigoon, Emplemon, Supereyepatchwolf, Jacob Geller, and Solar Sands are all pretty good.
Girls? What girls are peeing on the seat lol.. In my experience with the people I’ve lived with, the boys who do not clean up seat pee are ones that didn’t grow up with women. If they had sisters, they know to put up the seat and put it down after, and to clean it… Continue reading Why don’t guys or girls clean the seat when they piss on it?
Alright, they’re clearly conscious. I was mainly referring to, do they recognizing that they’re alive and existing? I was petting my cat, and I was wondering this.
The world before civilization as we understand it. Like sometime around I think the Iron age? Where there were like, smiths of sorts and trading. The world was still wild and unpolluted. But, there was still cheese and bread and boats and shit.
I’ve got lots I guess but when I was in kindergarten, there was a kid picking on my friend, I think his name was Nick. He pushed her or something like that and I gave him a bloody nose. I remember him punching me in the sternum because he was like five. We had to… Continue reading What is your best story where you’ve stood up to someone?
Purple Mountains, by David Berman, under the name Purple Mountains, is an incredibly emotionally raw album that can also, at times be pretty funny. It also is something of a suicide note, as Berman killed himself about a month after the album’s release.
It just feels like fire while it’s falling on you, or does it actually burn things down? I’d probably just stay inside if the former. If the latter, I’d find a cave or something that can’t be burned down.
Flutter. Everyone would make, “Fluts.” It sounds dirty but it’s not. People would love it and my staff would love me. It’s Pizza Friday and I wouldn’t be kidding. Thin crust, burn it NY pizza. Whippets, too. Just get loopy on nitrous and laugh off some stress. My Flutterverse would be brimming with well-paid, happy… Continue reading If you bought twitter what would you rename it?
Depends on when i ordered it and what it is. Some things can ship same day if ordered early in the day. Other thing might take time to prep for shipping. Also depends on the company. Overall, it should ship same day or the next…. But that depends….
Vegas concert event shooting. No motive given, brother of the shooter is suddenly whisked away on some kind of CP charges despite owning an AOL-era desktop and nothing else. Throngs of people fired upon and the public gave half a fuck for like a week and moved on, with probably one of the biggest fuck… Continue reading What crazy conspiracy theory did everyone forget about overnight?

Took a homeless man to a store to buy him groceries, got him a hotel room, and gave him extra money for whatever he needed. Turns out, the man wasn’t actually homeless.
The same make and model is the same at any store. Many stores have their own brand, like Best Buy has Insignia, but it’s hard to compare different house brands. PS: I bought an open box Insignia TV years ago for cheap, and it’s still going strong. 🙂
Agreed. They need to pay fees to accept cards, and cash has no such fees. Maybe it makes accounting easier since they never have to count cash, and also they don’t need to make runs to the bank, or deal with making change and so on.
Annoying people to “start a conversation” usually only starts a conversation about how annoying you are. That said, I feel like it’s sort of a conclusion we should expect. Aren’t we saying that climate change is some kind of an emergency that requires immediate attention and action? Take “Don’t Look Up” for example – I… Continue reading Reddit, what is your opinion on the “just stop oil” protests?
In the modern world it would be largely impossible for any significant population of them to; Be able to feed on humans Have none ever be killed, even by accident Live in any semi-developed country Avoid creating any tangible evidence of their presence …all without ever being discovered. If there was like a dozen or… Continue reading If vampires actually existed, what would they need to do stay under the radar, with no one noticing that they don’t age or die?
Humble, and defer to local customs. Don’t expect things to be the way they are back at home, and certainly don’t act like cultures doing things in ways that are different to the US makes them worse.
Looking back I realize I grew up down the street from a probable domestic terrorist. He taught his kid how to make homemade bombs out of gunpowder and melted crayons. He had a bunch of weapons, including a flamethrower, and even though he lived on one acre of land and didn’t own a farm or… Continue reading What is the most weirdest thing that happened to you as a kid?
Oh god that stuff scares me… there was a guy who basically woke up, went about his morning routine, he stepped outside for a second and turned around to say bye to his wife and collapsed and died. Turned out his son murdered them with an axe in their sleep and he literally went through… Continue reading What’s something you ONLY know from muscle memory?
I’ve been smoking for a very long time and I’m sorry to say that I’ve never had a bizarre high story, the best I have is watching Spice World three times in a row and having to stop halfway thru because my sides hurt from laughing so much. Oh and one time I was really… Continue reading Weed smokers, what is the bizarrest high story you have?
– Got over her, started seeing another girl. – Sudden “hey, I’m in town call”. Did the rebound thing. – Went to meet new girl a few days later.

In golf, the term “green” refers to the area of short grass surrounding the hole. The green is where the flagstick is placed and where the cup is cut into the turf. It is also the area from which players putt. There are a few different rules that come into play when a ball goes… Continue reading What are the rules of golf concerning being on the green when your opponent’s ball goes into the water hazard, and he elects to play it from where it lies?
There are just so many – The United States of America, Bahrain, China, Turkey, Canada, Morocco and North Korea to name a few.
being french,no one likes french people,french people don’t like themselves,yet many find their accent attractive
the worse feeling possible is not sadness or regrets or anger,its being completely numbed out of boredom,can not be amused,pleasured,nor entertained by anything is much worse
I think it’s fine to be aware that some people might treat you differently because of your physical qualities. That’s just reality. To me, that’s different than “accepting that you’re ugly”, because that would mean condoning treating people differently based on those physical qualities, which I don’t.
short of any speeding tickets I dont know about… My mum took a photo of me with my elderly uncle when we all went out for dinner the other day. I guess that’d be the last one. Or, maybe my kid screencapped me while we were having a facetime tonight. He does that from time… Continue reading If you died today, what would be the last photograph of you?
Mans puked out the window, and another kid behind him had his window open and it was almost like a vacuum chamber of some sorts because the wind took the kids vomit and blew it into the kid sitting behind him, it landed in the kids face. This was in eighth grade.
My height has always felt like a detriment. It feels like it’s harder for people to take me seriously, and it sucks having to climb the counter to reach anything. If I could have an extra foot of height, that’d be nice.
A girl left a note in my locker in middle school. I assume the note was between one of her friends and some guy. It just said, “Do you like “Note Girl?” with two boxes under it. The box was checked yes. She later asked me during class if I saw the note. She then… Continue reading what was your most “the fuck just happened?” moment in your life?
So many things. As we grow older we change our way of thinking, learn new things, and sometimes realize that you aren’t getting what you need out of your relationship anymore. My husband’s work took precedence over everything; even when he didn’t have to work. I was left alone most of the time. Even though… Continue reading What makes a person fall out of love with their spouse after many years in love?
It’s not about age, it’s about ability. If a person cannot do the basic care— getting in and out of bed, taking care of hygiene needs(toilet and washing), dressing and undressing, and feeding themselves they should have help either full time or part time. If forgetfulness is an issue and medication is not taken regularly… Continue reading What age is too old to live alone?
Ruen (Bulgarian: Руен, pronounced [ˈruɛn]; Turkish: Ulanlı) is a village in southeastern Bulgaria, part of Burgas Province. It is the administrative centre of Ruen municipality, which lies in the northern part of Burgas Province.
When I was growing up, it was a great time. I did feel there was a lack of the social aspect though, as there were no extracurricular activities or clubs or anything of that sort.
He makes a damn good Constantine. His voice work as the cat in Keanu might be his best role though.
I think Elon will root out the corruption and Twitter will become a more honest place. Apparently the algorithm actually works the way it was meant to, but it was manipulated by the old Twitter employees so users see only what they want you to see.
Right now, Russia. Pre the recent conflict, quite probably China and the United States. There’s also North Korea, though the lack of information and direct relevance to Western society means a lot of Westerners view North Korea as wacky or absurd, worthy of ridicule more than hatred.
https://www.smbc-comics.com/comic/history-is-weird “Fun” little comic about this idea, basically in any sensible timeline humans have already nuked ourselves into exctinction and it’s only absurd coincidences and luck that allowed us to make it this far. But as a silver lining it also means humans cannot possibly go extinct because there will always be some timeline where… Continue reading If the multiverse theory is correct, what are some moments in history that you think would only exist in our universe/timeline?
Because he’s smart enough to surround himself with people who are vastly dumber than him to exploit. He appeals to broken idiots with bruised egos and no capacity or interest in fact checking to give him money. So it’s not that he is smart, he’s just smarter than the worms he preys opon.
There is a possibility, by way of the many worlds theory, that they simply do not occur in this reality and literally connect one reality to another. And in another reality, they’re asking “why are there no black holes if Eibert Alstein’s theory of relativity is correct”.
Coughs, or hiccups. Fuck both of them. No control for either one.
Because, it makes you feel as if the past is better than the present, making your bodily emotions want the previous experiences
as a general rule, i stay far, far away from love songs. i’m aro-ace, and i just don’t get it. also i think songs with other topics lend themselves better to funny lyrics.
Take harder and harder classes so you don’t get bored and just coast on your natural ability. Take more APs/IB classes. Start self-studying for AP courses that aren’t taught at your high school. You can teach a few of them to yourself. If those are easy, start taking community college classes after normal school in… Continue reading How do you get over gifted kid syndrome in high school/study tips?
PewDiePie I guess. I watched him when he mostly played Amnesia and people most thought he was annoying because he screamed a lot, but he was very authentic and polite. The fame got to his head and he’s totally different now.
I would give you an award for rhyming I don’t have one though. I like softer cookies but cookies that kind of have both like a bit hard on the side but more soft in the middle. I would say cake most of the time but pie crust is really something extra special.
Well, some people are just dickheads. And I don’t mean dickhead like myself, but proper dickhead. I’m actually an asshole, not really a dickhead.
Most recently, it was watching my son in a swimming lesson swim from the middle of the pool to the edge and climb out. Not a huge distance but it just alleviated some of the anxiety I have about him drowning somehow.
it’s unpleasant in the moment, but going for a pretty hardcore run, and then having a brutally hot shower, and then hydrating. a lot. you might puke your soul out, but it’s worked for me before.
I wouldn’t endorse anything. Nothing, absolutely nothing. Not even “Don’t kick puppies”-charity. So I think they should be responsible for everything they endorse because they got lazy if they didn’t check the product before they started to endorse the product. And let’s be honest here, we only hear about it when it all goes badly…
Make meal plans and actually put enough thought into/do enough research on what a healthy diet should actually look like. When it comes to exercise, strength exercises are generally better than aerobic exercises for weight loss, but all exercise is good exercise and doesn’t need to be for the sake of a few less numbers… Continue reading Fit people of Reddit, What’s your best diet/weight loss tip?
Call them out on it, publicly and loud for everyone around you to hear. Center them out, make them try to defend their position.
My father will probably throw stuff at me and play the victim card so absolutely not My mom is aware of some of it but she’s going through enough so she doesn’t need to listen to more, I know I can trust her tho
The Census, of course… That’s literally what they do. Go check out the census stats, that will be the most accurate snapshot you could ask for.
Who the fuck knows? I have a wife, kids, pets, own a home. My daily expenses are basically me standing there “making it rain” all the time. Where it goes, I have no idea.
I, for one, like to put “Obligitory Get rotated, idiot” on any and every shark-related post I come across.
i’ve had many shitty jobs. fast food, pot washer, fish and chips, warehouse. i didn’t stay in those jobs long because they were shit.
Someone who is layered and can see stuff from other people’s perspectives. Someone who has empathy and uses phrases like “on the other hand”, “… but you can’t fully blame them”, “I kind of get where they are coming from…”, even when they disagree It’s also a good indicator the person is very capable of… Continue reading There are “red flags” to watch out for, but what are the “green flags” one shouldn’t take for granted?
What’s the quickest way to spread a rumor? The internet, telephone, and telling your mom. “I’m going on a diet I need to lose wait, son.” “Yeah, you could lose a pound or ten, mom.” “Now I understand why mama animals tend to eat their young.” “My daughter asked me what it’s like having the… Continue reading We all know dad jokes, but how would a mom joke be?
They usually prepare their usual vegan food. Which amuses me greatly, as if I invited vegans to dinner, they’d expect me to prepare special vegan food just for them – which, of course, I’d happily do, and some of the more overzealous types would even expect me to prepare special vegan food just for myself… Continue reading What do you think vegans do when inviting meat eaters to dinner?
Entertainment No lesser entertainment than. TV, netflix, watching sports, reading fiction (if you’re reading research articles or something then sure)
As for the cinematic universe, it’s this the birth of a Celestial brought to a standstill. chronologically, there are three movies set after The Eternals: Spider-man: No Way Home Docter Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Thor: Love and Thunder Yet no one seems to be even batting an eye at this giant sticking out… Continue reading What is something from the Marvel Universe that is really kind of dark, but gets ignored?
Money I understand especially for financial stability, but if some women are into “ traditional men“ then yes I find that to be a problem, don’t get me wrong with the height though, I would rather a tall a boyfriend/girlfriend, but that’s not really a preference more of a type but I would date absolutely… Continue reading What is a dating preference that you think is absolutely ridiculous?
I grew up playing soccer and it has always been my favorite sport. I love the feeling of scoring a goal, the excitement of a close game, and the camaraderie of being on a team. I also love that soccer is a sport for everyone – regardless of size, gender, or ability.
Being the fallguy in a conspiracy to get some connected shitbag off the hook for something terrible. Irrational because I know it won’t happen but for the system to come together against me, from cops to judge because a senator’s son raped a girl and he doesn’t want the bad press is a terrifying thought.… Continue reading What are you irrationally afraid of?
I wouldn’t necessarily say sheltered, but it’s a website that skews young with a predominantly male demographic, meaning there’s an inherent bias in the replies one gets. On average, the majority of the people commenting are going to be young guys who lack the experience of age, and I imagine that the naïve enthusiasm and… Continue reading How sheltered is this site do you believe?
Flour, Water, Seasoning, Sugar, actual bake ingredients.
Either an afterlife is real or it isn’t. Meaning there is either evidence supporting the claim it is real or there isn’t. There is absolutely zero proof an afterlife is real. None. At all. So that means believing in one is completely ridiculous. People that do should grow the fuck up.
Just be honest and upfront about it. Especially why you cheated. Because that’s also important. Because if the reasons leading up to the act don’t get addressed there’s a good chance it’ll happen again. I say this as someone who’s been unfaithful to their spouse in the past.
Normally Reddit or random YouTube videos are my “I’m doing this until I get tired” thing. If I’m watching a show… probably Family Guy. I don’t particularly love Family Guy, but it is episodic and the humor lands no matter how close to unconscious I am.
Solar ovens to cook food; just needs some reflective metal really and a place where the sun is awake. You can also buy em professionally made if you don’t want to imitate a survival show, they’re called reflector ovens and cost about the same as a grill.
This was the last text I sent. “I love you _____, your were the first girl I loved. Maybe later in this life, if not perhaps another.”
As an American, I feel bad saying this, but Apple pie. It’s either too sweet or too sour, either it’s vaguely disappointing.
This is a good question. This is the way I see. Some can use money for materialistic purposes which evokes superficial happiness. As time goes on, these individuals will come to realize that these items really hold no significant value (I’m not saying this is the case for everyone cause some items can hold significant… Continue reading Can money buy sadness? Why?
Believe it or not, I ran through a ranch slider at my mate’s place because he got pissed off at me because I accidentally shot him in the testicles with a BB gun. Surgery on my left knee and now the scar is permanent. Not funny for me, but my parents were joking about it… Continue reading What’s the most ridiculous/hilarious way you ended up in the Emergency Room?
Forget whatever information you gained, and do your old mistakes, and you get your old version back. Always look forward my friend, looking back will never help
I got a new kitten recently. He plays with one of my older cats, but sometimes he pisses her off. Whenever it starts to heat up, my third cat runs in like batman and breaks it up. It’s cute but I don’t understand the behaviour.
Officially, Ukraine has not been denied NATO membership due to corruption. I wouldn’t put it past some element in Ukraine having done this. I don’t know how likely it would be, but it’s not as if this is the first time something like this has happened.
If it’s something kinda vulnerable that I’d still be willing to talk about I’d say my experience with having multiple surgeries in a pretty quick amount of time and that whole process. If it’s general stuff then my interests, passions, what I like to read, blah blah blah
Obviously – at some point you have to get over, or at least control your fears. There are no good substitutes to professional medical care. You might seek medical advice on reddit – r/askdocs – r/askdoctors – r/medical – etc. Those are some of the subreddits that offer advice to medical questions – but ultimately… Continue reading what is the best way to seek medical attention if you are afraid of doctors and hospitals?
Most people are thinking about how themselves are going to react to a situation. How often are you thinking about how other people may come across; You don’t. So realize that the majority of people are too focused on how they appear to others for it to matter to them.
The superintendent came over for an unforgettable luncheon, but my roast was ruined. I purchased fast food and disguised it as my own cooking (delightfully devilish, I must say). I convinced him that they were steamed hams, an Albany expression for hamburgers.
I was gonna say certain industries within computer science but it looks like we’re seeing a bunch of layoffs in the tech industry rn for a variety of reasons (facebook, twitter and amazon all cut a bunch of people) So might have missed the opportunity on that
That only exists if you had “young man strength” and you continued to build it into adulthood. Most old men don’t have that strength, they never truly develop it. Old men aren’t some magical creature that suddenly gets powers lol…. Strong old men *were* strong young men. So if you aren’t now a strong young… Continue reading At what age can one acquire “old man strength?”
Most of them. Kanye and Trump aren’t included in that statement. They deserve it all. For the most part they’re regular people who make mistakes. Unfortunately for them those mistakes are broadcasted to the entire world, sometimes by paparazzi in private moments. We’d all be fucked if our every move was analyzed and broadcasted too.
My firearms. Real life zombies wouldn’t be magical, they’d just be normal old weak human bodies, like their host humans were before they turned. So yeah, hollowpoints or higher calibers… Will definitely do the job. But I’d barricade my door, since it’s the only real entry point. Hunker down, stay quiet. Try to ration my… Continue reading if a zombie apocalypse broke out ,what items in your home would you use a weapon?
A shirt, and undershirt, some pants, some under pants. and most important of all a blanket. Normal siting at home stuff
Absolutely beautiful in every way. Twitter is evil, and watching it get so perfectly, systematically destroyed is wonderful. You ever see one of those videos where a building is demoed, and they just drop the whole structure perfectly in to the basement? Well, there’s a hell of a lot of work that goes in to… Continue reading People of Reddit, what do you think of the twitter deal?
The breakfast at this local place that my friend raved about. Cold, runny egg whites (I order ‘over medium’ eggs), rubbery bacon and burnt toast with ice cold butter. I couldn’t eat any of it, and my friend thinks I’m crazy for not wanting to go back.
Florida, Florida is America’s basement. It’s wet, it’s filled with mold, the strange insects… alligators…
no. if the team already is on friendly terms in general, just encourage them by being nice and doing “here is food for everyone in the break room” or “heres sweets in baskets for every desk.” stuff. people who hate eachother will not change through forced “but being nice is so fun” events, people who… Continue reading What are some legitimately fun team-building activities? Are there any?
Worst crime as far as the worst punishment I could have gotten? Smuggling controlled substances. Nothing ever came of it. Worst crime as far as potentially harming other people? Speeding. I’ve gotten a few tickets, and paid a few hundred in fines.
I usually start seeing very long rows of stalls with half-sized doors where people can see into. Usually there are quite a few people around too so I’ll try to find a stall somewhere hidden away for some privacy. When the toilet stall looks out grim, that’s how I know that I need to wake… Continue reading What indicates to you in your sleep that you need to wake up and go to the toilet?
Rutger Hauer He was such a handsome man, but the roles he played were ugly. When I saw this question, his face is what I immediately thought of. His acting resume was long and varied, but I can’t think of any “good guy” roles he played.
bussin’ 🤢🤮 It’s a slang used to describe things, usually food, that is good. Anytime I hear it IRL, I am irrationally upset.
Seek out jobs that interest you; try different things; any job is a good job, until a better job comes along. I’ve been enjoying life as a city bus driver, some love driving, some hate it.
A woman that will have lots of sex with random people is expirmenting but a guy does it and he is a player and a dick My viewpoint is both genders can love sex but there is a difference between loving sex and sleeping with anything with a pulse
Knowing what is actually on sale verse what’s not. Amazon has a large tendency to hike up prices right before Black Friday so the “sale” is really just it going back to a normal price. Also don’t buy certain things like TVS that are on a big Black Friday sale. It’s not the same TV.… Continue reading What tools needed for Black Friday shopping?
Fox Hunting- its banned, but ceremonial ones happen, and they seem to end up killing foxes anyway. I think its just rich privilege killing for no real reason.
A child at school asked me if I liked cake. I said yes, they looked me up and down and replied, “You look like you like cake.”
Working at a job I love. This time last year I was working somewhere that the stress was so bad, I was on the verge of another heart attack/heart failure. Now I love going to work because I work with awesome people and actually have fun at work.
Practice a few times a week in hour long lessons. My instructor told me that practicing all the time in long lessons isn’t an effective way to learn and memorize things like driving and rules of the road because you just absorb too much at once. I’d work on one thing each week like merging,… Continue reading What’s the best way to learn to drive and memorize the rules of the road?
Nothing, forgiveness just means you’ve let go of negative feelings. You can forgive and still cut the toxic person out of your life. I don’t hate alligators, in a way I love them but I don’t hang out with alligators because I know gators gonna gate and I’m prone to lose an arm the more… Continue reading What do you regret forgiving?
like hard physical labor and a sense of community/family? ppl in “third world” countries are already doing that. but we get treated like shit and get labeled as uncivilized, unclean, and outdated.
Got horribly smashed during carnival and spent literally a day and a half vomitting. Even had friends over to paint the living room in my new flat. Literally did one stroke with the paint roller, went to the bathroom to puke, then came back and did the next stroke. Took way too long, but at… Continue reading What is your absolute worst “I’m never drinking again” moment?

I once heard a story about the inventor of rubber cleaning gloves. His wife, according to legend, was a cleaning lady whose hands would come home calloused and raw. He wished to create something for her that would spare her the agony she had endured. They said something like, “He loved her to the point… Continue reading How do you know that someone really loves you?
Whats more Likely? That an alien super race travled though space and time, to interact with the most advanced civilisation at the time, only for no clear records of if to exist… or that people just piled a couple of rocks on top of eachother
Start working. Learn a trade or practical skill. Or start teaching yourself how to start your own buisness.or do some studying or other small classes at a local college.

Generally what is said isn’t necessarily the problem, how it’s expressed is where things get fuckity. “I hate when you tie your hair up because you makes my dick hard when it’s down” is very problematic for so many reasons you probably belong on the sex offender registry just for phrasing your question like that.… Continue reading what are your thoughts on a guy telling his female coworker that he hates how she ties up her hair because she looks better with it down?
some contents (like videos, songs, artworks, photos, books, etc.) behind paywall but it’s directly hosted (doesn’t link to anywhere and can be accessed through twitter).. facilitate a marketplace for selling stuffs and take some cut from the sale. one is gonna make it onlyfans ripoff, and the other is gonna make it a dumpster.
Europe is a relatively vast continent with different cultures and priorities. It’s hard to choose a single worst city, because there are so many of them. Perhaps some of the most dangerous ones can be found in the slums of Eastern Europe, such as Belarus or Moldova, with high crime and homicide rates.
Because he’s a neet power fantasy like a lot of anime. No ambition in the world besides to get laid before he dies, gets infused with ridiculous power and a harem of hotties is thrown in his lap.
I literally hear my mom’s voice in my head saying, “You HAVE to MAKE yourself.” Sounds silly but we both had undiagnosed ADHD and that was one of her best teachings that stuck with me. I’ve met other people with various disorders who had moms that did everything for them growing up and now they… Continue reading How do you find the discipline to do necessary shit?
Recently, Arno in Uncut Gems. (Though one could argue that Howard is the real villain) He’s desperate to get his money back and is very uncomfortable with the measures he has to take. He’s been put into an extremely uncomfortable position by an asshole who also happens to be a family member.
None. I just have to keep anything on my clothes(buttons, zippers, belt loops, etc….) attached and ensure they don’t come off
I really don’t understand the Taylor Swift hype. Her music is very average to me, and I feel the same about her personality/stage presence. She’s not terrible, but it makes no sense to me why people would lay down their lives for her.
Went to a Bob Dylan concert a couple years back, the acoustics in the arena plus his absolute muttering made it impossible to enjoy, plus he played none of his hits and only his newer stuff. We left before the end to go to a bar and had no regrets
Avoid the most popular tourist destinations unless you have some local guide or someone who speaks the local language, especially if you’re a white person. Scammers do love to target white people. Those with darker complexion can blend much easily, but still I’d suggest atleast some research on the area and the type of scams… Continue reading What is some advice you would give to a tourist visiting your country?
Scissors. When using rightie scissors, we naturally spread the blades apart, so we learn this hand-cramping method to twist the together. Now, if I actually use a pair of left scissors, I twist my hand weird and spread the blades apart…
Interesting question. I am curious too. I can imagine suffocation, pressure from getting squeezed through the mouth, tongue, throat. I can imagine stomach acid is bad for you, but not totally sure how that affects the body.
Food from a restaurant that sucked. I’m not gonna ask to speak to the manager, I’m not gonna write a mean review online, I’m not even gonna stiff the tip. I’m just never going back, and when your restaurant comes up in conversation, I’m gonna let people know why you suck and where we might… Continue reading What’s one thing you would never buy a second time?
Really depends on the person. I cooked an apparently-really-good meal for my family of four and got compliments. That’s adulting. I called one of my kids out on their unresearched bullshit. That’s also adulting. I gently and without warning grabbed my wife’s boob earlier, and she grinned as she swatted my hand away. That’s also… Continue reading What is the best thing about being an adult?
“If I had a gun, with two bullets, and I was in a room with Hitler, Bin Laden and Toby, I would shoot Toby twice.” – Michael Scott
Anything that’s assisted, the accessory machines. so like the chest press, leg press, all those machines that target specific muscles good way to warm up and start up until you get ready for heavier or compound lifts. Best of luck!
Men do in fact spent hours of our time… thinking about nothing. We will just stare off and completely shut down..no thoughts, no purpose. Just refragging. If you ask us “what are you thinking about” and we say nothing… and you get pissy about it… you’re wrong. We are actually thinking about nothing. We have… Continue reading Men of reddit what is hard to explain to women?
I nominate Volumnia from Shakespeare’s Coriolanus: The breasts of Hecuba, / When she did suckle Hector, look’d not lovelier / Than Hector’s forehead when it spit forth blood.
Twitter is evil. Bad for everything from our mental health to our democratic institutions. I am happy to see it burn. I don’t give a shit why Elon is doing it, just that he is, and it’s magnificent. If I wreck my car, and somebody pulls me out of the flaming wreckage, I’m not gonna… Continue reading What’s your honest opinion of Elon Musk?
Guy named Rick, who was the head of marketing, who I liked, and who was one of the few people who I’ve met who truly loved his job, keeled over dead at his desk one day. As the coroner wheeled him out, one of my co-workers just flatly said “Another victim of corporate America.”
Is there street parking, or would you take up a driveway/garage spot? Honestly, if it was me, and I had room to cram another car somewhere, I would just ask for some beer(or liquor or wine, whatever they like) as payment.
I still live paycheck to paycheck, but some good advice I try to follow for buying things that aren’t absolute necessities (clothes, shoes, a li’l treat) is when you want to buy it, wait a few days, and if you are still thinking of wanting it, buy it then. If not, it wasn’t that important… Continue reading what’s some financial advice that helped you when you were living paycheck to paycheck?
They might be pretty safe, submachine guns usually fire handgun rounds and I think it takes something a bit bigger to make it through plate armor Someone correct me if I’m wrong
In China? They kind of did it to themselves. It was a pyramid scheme where they bought up buildings as a source of investment even though those buildings didn’t have electricity, plumbing, or tenants. In the US? The investment firms bought up houses as a way to increase profits. Sold houses when the market spiked… Continue reading What do you think about the housing situation?
“I don’t know half of you as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve” It bugs my mind to this day!
I prefer it black, but most coffee is too acidic and triggers a bit of heartburn for me without some cream/milk/half&half in it. Preferred dairy is evaporated milk.
Most likely lead an effort in constructing a walled area in the middle of town, connecting the supermarkets and getting a rationing effort in store.

Lean on the local farmers to join the effort and… Continue reading what will be your strategy during zombie apocalypse?
Times change, and it used to be really really pale skin because that meant you were part of the elite and didn’t have to work under the Sun. And funny enough pale or even whiter than your average peasants has been considered sign of aristocracy even among people who are not white. For example even… Continue reading How come bronze skin tone is deemed the most attractive?
I only believe that it’s within the realm of possibility and that we don’t/will likely never know. I don’t just outright believe there is a god. I don’t outright believe there isn’t one. Why? because there’s no way to know for sure either way
Everything. From the inside AND THROW IT ALL AWAAAAAAAY Cuz I swear for the last time I can’t trust myself with youuuu
In my case (this was a few years back when the kids were little) it was all about good budgeting. Obviously the one income has to be at least minimally sufficient to cover things. But, beyond that, it was about minimizing expenses through vigorous budgeting and frequent re-budgeting as things changed. We never intended for… Continue reading How do families with one income get by every month?
Whitby. Nice beaches, beautiful Abbey, loads of pubs. Goth Festival twice a year, Steampunk Festival twice a year plus other festivals throughout the year.
This reminds me of the ludicrous account he gave Mr. Langton, of the despicable state of a young gentleman of good family. “Sir, when I heard of him last, he was running about town shooting cats.” And then in a sort of kindly reverie, he bethought himself of his own favorite cat, and said, “But… Continue reading What’s the best quote you’ve ever heard?
As a guy, I would love that lol. And I’d probably calm down once I ate a Snickers bar, haha! …I should ask my wife to carry some in her purse for me…
Porn, work, gym, anime, video games, comics, and general good vibes
I hate religion. Here on reddit, it makes a stereotypical “reddit atheist.” In real life, it makes me seen as evil, hellbound, heretic, blah blah blah…
Personally, I wouldn’t believe it. I used to have faith but it quickly diminished after I prayed for help when I was going through a severe depression and nothing happened, I was the one who reached out to my cousin(she’s a therapist) nobody ever reached out to me, so I would ask why he didn’t… Continue reading Turns out God has been real this whole time, what do you want to ask him?
Not an ex-gamer but… Used to play for a few hours daily. Was the main source of entertainment for me for a long time. Now I’m lucky to carve out an hour every couple nights. Schedule is just stacked with adult/life shit. Combined with the fact that the “usual crew” all has similar situations, you… Continue reading To ex video gamers: how did you manage to quit playing video games (as it can be a distraction from yourself)?
I went to school in Michigan. I noticed the frats and the homeless population had a symbiotic relationship. The frats would throw tailgates with tons of beer cans. They would leave to go to football game and the homeless population would sweep in and get their cans. The homeless people made a few bucks, and… Continue reading Do you crush cans after you finish your drink? Why?
Money, you won’t age nearly as fast from the stress, more time to put into important hobbies and projects, more mobility and flexibility in your life
That they’re “so glad” they had kids, and how it’s “so fulfilling.” Why, because they’re in over their heads with nowhere to go. What are they going to do, admit their entire life was a mistake? With no end in sight?
Getting thousands of babies, and only letting them eat certain diets all their lives (paleo, veggie, etc.). Eliminate as many variables as possible.
Turn off the CPAP breathing machine, take off mask, climb out of bed, turn off the alarm clock, turn on the light above the stove, turn on the kettle, feed the cat, check Reddit, pee/poo
I wouldn’t doesn’t seem there’s any benefit, only regression. Assuming you’re someone who learns from mistakes Now if I could prevent them from ever happening to begin with? sure But if it still happened and the only diff is I dont’ remember? no benefit
I’m on diet right now, only eating once a day, no dinner. But I had chicken and beans after my workout today
Yes. The entire point of society is for humanity to support each other. As for other options, we need to make it harder to get guns. I’m a gun owner, but no one should be able to walk into a store and get a machine designed entirely to kill a large amount of people in… Continue reading Those who believe gun violence in America is due to mental health, do you support free universal mental health care? Why or why not? Are there other options you would support?
To me they’re the same thing as somebody preferring Andy to Andrew. Its basic and easy respect. People who get worked up about it feel like the kind of people who don’t have enough real problems to keep themselves occupied so they have to go online to make themselves upset about something. “Nonbinary people exist… Continue reading Are neo-pronouns acceptable or not? & Why?
City life relies on the agricultural, mining, logistics, and manufacturing industries that exist outside the city. Every city dweller, no matter how populous the city is, should recognize and respect this dependency. Just because an urban environment has more people, that does not mean it is more important. This is why a democratic system of… Continue reading Redditors that grew up/live in the country what’s something every city kid should know?
YouTube, for research, entertainment and sleep. Pornhub for obvious reasons And I guess Netflix, or prime. Idk I’d toss a coin for that one.b
Crucifixion. The Romans were masters of torture, so they devised the cross as the ultimate torture punishment. Crucified prisoners would have to hold up their body to avoid being suffocated. It’s like being slowly suffocated, but drawn out so you can physically feel yourself dying sometimes over the course of days. Plus, everyone gets to… Continue reading what’s the absolute worst way to kill someone?
I ask because I had that happen to me one time. I was young and idealistic, and I saw a woman begging for a ride on the side of the road.

She kept trying to get me to drop her off… Continue reading Men of reddit, has there ever been a situation where you were alone with a woman and felt physically unsafe?
There’s always a flutter of hope. Makes you think maybe it could be you this time. But it never is. No matter how many times it’s happened with different people, and no matter how much you’ve tried to suppress that hope, it still happens. You still hurt
Answering all their questions as they’d want you to. “I can totally be fair and impartial!” Etc etc. I can keep an open mind. I can listen to all the evidence! Blah blah.

Weird. Mostly relief, which can lead to feeling guilt. I console myself by telling myself I tried to be a good kid despite it all. But, yeah, overwhleming relief.
In an ideal world, a completely utopian society where humans are incapable of greed or misdeeds, and everyone worked just as hard as everyone else, it would be the perfect economic system. But in the real world, someone is going to have to take it up the a** for someone else. It’s just not practical.
Command Sergeant Major in my unit took a liking to me, kept inviting me to her house saying her computer wasn’t working, that she’d pay me adequately for my time. When I told her to just bring it in and I’d fix it at work she got super mad
Story telling. It’s been adapted to poetry, novels, music, movies, paintings, etc. There are so many creative outlets that have come out of the human desire to share stories.
When they pull, push, when they push, pull… And never underestimate what fingers can do to eyelids.
Humans had quite the head start so I feel like we’d have a decent shot of winning out in most areas with superior weapons and stuff. Like it would be a while until a chimp with human intelligence could develop guns and nuclear technology. If you’re in areas where we didn’t already eradicate the majority… Continue reading If all living organisms gained sentience and intelligence on par with humans, which would be the apex predator?
I grew up baptist, but they’re all batshit insane. I’m more inclined to believe that they’re all correct, than any particular one being superior, but ultimately I consider myself an atheist.
People say say Pepsi is sweeter, it has a different taste but I wouldn’t say sweeter. Idk my taste buds are a little wonky after all the soda I’ve lived off of. But I’ll usually buy coke, happy to drink either
Average how?If you’re average looking but respectful, polite, and maybe a little funny, it might take a while to get matches but you’ll do well in contact and dates.

It’s surprisingly uncommon to find a nice guy… Continue reading What’s the average man’s chances on tinder?
a genuine love for children, understanding that they are still human beings that have their own wants and needs and still loving them unconditionally, and being ready to provide for them not just financially but also emotionally
As someone who has had an interest in cars since childhood and still mostly only plays racing video games, driving was massively disappointing. Boring, slightly stressful and quite dangerous. I don’t even have a car, because I can get by without one in my Euro city. Owning a car sucks as well with all the… Continue reading What adult activity is better/worse than you thought it would be when you were a child?
Me and my friends used to fish at a nearby river every day after school. If we caught anything, we could take it home for one of our parents to cook up, and we would all sit around and eat it. It’s a wonderful memory. Looking forward to reading your’s!

Fuck plastic. Killing wildlife, infecting humanity, and for the love of god, there’s no good/durable way to fix it when it’s broken. Heaven forbid it’s had a life outdoors and becomes some brittle skeleton of whatever it started as. Plastic can fuck right off. EDIT: Also, please remind me later to buy some more Ziplocs.
I had a friend in my senior year of high school who stayed with me for awhile because of issues at home.

Ever since I was child, I had a recurring dream that I’d die slow and alone as I drift off into space, unable to be rescued, and into the forever-expanding darkness. Even then I may not be found.
FYI, I do have good friends. They’re moving away and I plan on doing so soon too, but would like to make new friends. Has it been difficult for some of you? I normally meet ppl through mutual friends, but I rather long term friendships

I’ve looked young for my age for a big part of my career, and the consequences are that your bosses tend to think of you as less capable and less experienced if you give a young impression.
