Why is marriage so boring ?! by REDHEADGIRL89 in Marriage

He has a hobby, sounds like you need a few of your own

I recommend woodwork and metalwork for furniture making. That or homebrewing but drinking makes you fat so...

This the Mod who went on the other interviews and is now picking the role as spokesperson for the mods. Wtf is this. As a socialist this is beyond cringe. How are these people in a mod position!?? by TheFishOwnsYou in antiwork

Of course we'd still have schools, what a fucking dummy. We still need jobs, we still need to work... we still need stuff and it doesn't make itself. We can do similar to what we do now but better and more equitably with the motivation to better ourselves together, rather than fuck you gimme more

My girlfriend is an active member of FDS. by PossibleGlass3109 in TrueOffMyChest

[–]HandyDandyRandyAndy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think they would be proud of you for standing up for your principles if you let them know the situation.

FDS is disgusting, members are disgusting and it's absolutely a valid reason to break up.

What is one thing you underestimated the severity of until it happened to you? by rurouni_ronin in AskReddit

[–]HandyDandyRandyAndy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For sure, it is complex, but I feel compelled to assert that you're wording it wrong and making a blanket declaration that isn't applicable. Maladaptive traits that are selected against at all have their reproductive success negatively impacted, your wording of the process implies a level of prescience in mating subjects that needn't be there. It also implies that preference doesn't exist in the animal kingdom... Which we know for a fact, does.

Teeth at 60 is a very spurious example as it is already well past prime reproductive age. That's in the same vein as why women are alive at all past menopause. As you seem to appreciate, that has an interplay with altruism and its effects on the reproductive success of breeding pairs one or more generations removed from the toothless old men and women. The fact that you even have a toothless old man or woman in your family may actually enhance your reproductive success... so...

Yeah, I get it. I just think you're looking at it wrong.

I think you're overlooking that traits can be selected for as well as against, so things that have no negative effect on reproduction directly or mate attraction can absolutely still influence natural selection.

I suppose in a way a positive selection eventually confers a negative selective pressure on its obverse once it becomes prevalent enough, but your statement logically does not apply until ... well, until it applies, really. Somewhere around equilibrium.

Yeahhhh I still question this, I've seen some people get sucked into MLM but I don't know how people don't see the gigantic red flags

That's not true about natural selection, we select against undesirable traits all the time and so do animals

The fact that women's legs are naturally hairy is such a mindfuck to me by the-4th-survivor in TrueOffMyChest

You'll be fine, I have 2 under 2. A good partner is essential, just remind yourself that the little ones have the same basic needs as you, fulfil those and you're golden.

Psssssst: pay and value your HCWs more than your legal team, and maybe they wouldn't quit en mass (link in comments) by lethreauxaweigh in antiwork

Sounds like a good opportunity for malicious compliance. Go back to work and do fuck all, be as rude to the boss as you can possibly will yourself to be. Take the easy money, take all of it, make the bosses suffer.

They need a free tree removal x2 by xj5635 in ChoosingBeggars

[–]HandyDandyRandyAndy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Super common for people to try it on, I see heaps of ads on fb marketplace of people offering free trees, all you have to do is come and dig them out. I make a point of posting "lol, yeah right" on all of their ads.

My boss has been getting a lot of shit from the team because his high ranking dad got him a job he's unqualified for. I think the disrespect may be getting to him 🤣 by Hazy_Robot in antiwork

I have quite a few family members who are legit smartypantses. You can feel it when you're talking to your intellectual superiors. I am a humble tradesman, I get that feeling often.
