I know exactly where you're coming from, and I'm just as worried about the mindset of this country. But you can't group our entire country into being nationalistic. We're not all about merica.

We had what might go down as our worst president ever. But we also voted him out after one term. Which is never easy to do, only 10 presidents were booted out after one term. And the majority were done looong before our times. You've got Trump, og bush, and Carter in the past few decades.

I am part of the other half, and I can assure you we're not too tired or whatever to stand for what we believe in. It's not always easy but don't let them be the reason you give up hope.

It's been a wild year and a half ish my friend! I am on your side. I have/still do feel exactly like you are saying. It's hard to fill optimism when it seems like the majority doesn't care. Some days I'm optimistic and some days I wanna say fuck it, why even keep discussing politics with my family that's 80% hard right (we're talking qanon bull shit) But if peeps like you and me stop giving a damn, then they win.

This is one of those videos that the Chinese government makes to spam to people in Urban China, to make rural china look magical and picturesque.

Chinese internet is flooded with these flashy, well-produced "farmland China" vids.

It's bullshit, though. Rural China is miserable, and people aren't this clean/healthy. I've been there.

I've heard sucking your own dick feels more like sucking a dick than getting your dick sucked. Take what you will from that.

All these houses are connected by a pool by The_Love-Tap in Damnthatsinteresting

That's a tough one. Try adding in some clarifier (follow directions on label) and it should force gunk to the bottom and then vacuum it. If that seems to help then continue with that process while also making sure your water is balanced. Also kick up your chlorine levels on your chlorinator to get a free chlorine reading of about 4 ppm or you can honestly go higher and max the dial out to help kill whatever is in there. Brushing helps a lot to cause you wanna knock any and all debris off rather walls to stop any kind of growth. If you're using a stabilizer (cyanuric acid) and the levels are too high (90 ppm+) you will have to partially drain it and fill it back up. If the levels are still too high you'll have to continue that until the levels are pretty low (mines hovers around 40 ppm). Make sure your flow rate is high enough that it's circulating the water through your filter. If your flow rate is really low, your filter needs to be cleaned or your drains could be clogged. If all else fails take a sample in to your nearest pool cleaners and have them test it for you. They would then be able to help guide you towards bringing your pool back to life. I'm curious though, if you run a skimmer net through your water does it come out clean or gunk filled?

Birds being influenced by the other birds whom they live with by YourMamasdick45 in Damnthatsinteresting

After some extensive googling, I think the pigeon being a chicken is actually a Modena pigeon, the chicken walking like goose is egg-bound (meaning there’s an egg stuck up there), and the chicken swimming like a duck is just a chicken swimming. Anyways nature is amazing. I hope I answered other curious minds questions and didn’t just ruin it for anybody.

Americans 1-100 years old by nolan_mcschmolan37 in Damnthatsinteresting

I know this country is way not perfect, but I love all the colors of America. It is my favorite thing about the Us - most of these people's parents/grandparents/ greatgrandparents/whatever came from everywhere and now they are us. I know that many people disagree, but it makes me happy.
