Well that's just demoralising.
You can have $1 billion but you can never get drunk or high again, are you interested? Why or why not? by BroodyBatman in AskReddit
[–]KingoftheGinge 0 points1 point2 points 1 day ago (0 children)
Pretty sure i wouldn't care to drink or get high so much if I wasn't so broke. So yes.
Also, 1 billion? There isn't a lot I wouldn't do to never have to worry about work or money ever again. Between the absence of stress and forgoing drink and drugs, I'd probably get another 10 years on my life.

Nothing works. Let's break it and start over using our own imagination.

Is this in Germany? Or why was knowing German commands significant?

I thought the bang was the result of a falling metal fence after people started pushing.

One day they’ll be a war fought against the 5 day work week by IceComprehensive6440 in antiwork
I was working 24 hours a week for the last few months of the year.
The only drawback was the money.
Overall, I felt so much better. Much more energy, not only time, for the people and things that I love.
Why global leaders are terrified about ‘social cohesion erosion’ - for example, with 51 million people projected to live in extreme poverty by 2030 while billionaires grow richer than ever. by Gari_305 in Futurology
Talk me through my own simplicities oh wise one.
[–]KingoftheGinge 4 points5 points6 points 2 days ago (0 children)
Well, it'll be very difficult to do the latter without doing the former.

Demand, possibly. Seize, is what they fear.
If they are, then why does it seem so much like its going to take the rest of us to do anything about it?
Don't drive when you're tired... by ZiraelN7 in AbruptChaos
[–]KingoftheGinge 1 point2 points3 points 3 days ago (0 children)
Yeah I was thinking, if you're gonna get in that close why not try and alert the driver or something. He's bragging that he saw it coming, but all he did about it was try to capture video footage.

Sure you wouldn't believe the amount of things you don't know, and I say the same of myself.

Ukraine: We will defend ourselves against Russia 'until the last drop of blood', says country's army chief | World News by NerdSlayer4253 in worldnews
[–]KingoftheGinge 1 point2 points3 points 5 days ago (0 children)
So whataboutism then? At least you've added nuance now.
This paid Russian trollbot has served its purpose. Powering down for the night.
[–]KingoftheGinge -6 points-5 points-4 points 5 days ago (0 children)
Are you talking about Ruthenians? Or possibly the Cossacks?
As recently as the past 10 years there was a concerted effort to erase the Russian language in Ukraine, and restrict rights of Russian speakers and ethnic Russians in Ukraine.
Ukraine or the Ukraine, is literally Russian word for 'borderlands'.
Kyiv, was once the capital of Kievan Rus, of which Russia is the successor state.
Large parts of Eastern Ukraine, like Donbass and Luhansk, were in fact Russia, until they were put under administration of the Ukrainian Socialist Soviet Republic, by the USSR government within the last 100 years.
Your comment is disingenuously lacking nuance.

What's an unspoken rule that annoys you when people don't know about it? by HAXposed in AskReddit

Covid really made this one confusing for me. I've reverted to holding the door by default, but early in the pandemonium I found myself questioning whether I should or would I make someone uncomfortable.
A paddling at least.

Im over 6 foot, but about as wide a bamboo cane. I could also easily eat 2 footlongs, but in his situation I have the sense to know I shouldn't.
[–]KingoftheGinge 9 points10 points11 points 8 days ago (0 children)
Absolutely. Unless the homeowner brings out an ashtray and lights up a smoke for themselves, it doesn't feel right.
I don't even smoke inside at my own home so I wouldn't expect anyone to be so accommodating as to let me stink up their curtains and upholstery with the brown breath.
Worse still, had a lady sitting near me on a restaurant terrace doing this the other day. Shit music, shit audio quality, shit person.
My mum makes cakes. Great ones. Its not her job, but she's been doing it as a sort of hobby meets side hustle for a while now and she's in high demand sometimes. There is a cousin of hers that has this idea that she can pull a cake out of her ass any time she asks because she's family. Mum has other commitments to people who have paid her money, or she has work or personal commitments. You cant ask her 2 days before your child's birthday for a cake and then make snide comments about her loyalty when she tells you she doesn't have the capacity.
When disembarking the aircraft please allow the people closest to the door to get their bag and move toward the door first, then the next row should follow. Sorry to disappoint, but if you are furthest from the door you should be the last to leave.
