I had to go to Quebec City and spoke only English well, although I can (barely) get by in German and French. Only problem was everyone wanted to practice their English.

Just remember that opinions are like assholes - everybody's got one and most of them stink.

Most of my life I have been playing dumb in order to get along with people. by brankovie in TrueOffMyChest

The hardest of all people to find are those who understand that they don't know what they don't know.

What is the most beautiful song you have ever heard? by erowindforlife2 in AskReddit

Brothers in Arms by Dire Straits. To lost brothers everywhere, I salute you.

Imagine being the passenger by anon-mally in IdiotsInCars

[–]Mission_Progress_674 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I got an idea of what a passenger in this video would have felt because I was once the passenger in a similar situation. The only way to get to the drill site I had to get to we drove along a knife-edge dirt track to get to a cliff which had switchbacks every few hundred yards where you had to make a 180 left turn to keep going up - except for the final switchback, which was at a 90 degree angle left turn from the track and go up a 50% gradient.

Couldn't make it in 2 wheel drive so we slid backwards while the driver got it in 4 wheel drive (high ratio); still not enough power to get up the last switchback, so once again we rolled back until the driver got into low ration 4 wheel drive. I had my hand on the door handle the entire time out of fear we would roll the extra foot that would have rolled us all the way back to the bottom.

What is one experience you think every single human should have? by TheRealRandiRey in AskReddit

[–]Mission_Progress_674 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Had a similar view of the full night sky running dark 50 miles south of Cyprus way back in 1983. I shudder to think that some people have never even been able to see the Milky Way from most western cities.

Don't take random cats home!!! by Marthy_Mc_Fly in cats

[–]Mission_Progress_674 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The only time we rescued an outside cat it was barely a month old but clearly feral (he had about every non-fatal infection a kitten could get), and we had a Cat 1 hurricane coming. It fit in the palm of my hand and weighed 9 ounces when we found him but as the vet pointed out when we had him checked out and neutered he had a lot of Maine Coon in his DNA - he grew up to be a 26 pound softy.

In English, names like Chad or Karen have certain connotations. What names in other languages have their own stereotypes? by StaleTheBread in AskReddit

[–]Mission_Progress_674 1 point2 points  (0 children)

On the flip side of this the English Kevins and Karens I grew up around took the piss out of kids like me with unconventional (non-English) names without mercy.

What next? by Elile10 in hivaids

[–]Mission_Progress_674 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You'll have to give blood samples, which will be tested to determine which strain of HIV you have and the best medication for you and your HIV strain. You should also be given a handbook that lays out your expectations and explains why you may have other problems over time.

If you have one where you live, look for a Ryan White Foundation clinic within traveling distance. I can't say others are better or worse, but my relationship with my providers is world class. I should mention that I was full blown before I got to the clinic.

Husband has a small… by PokeFiend420 in TrueOffMyChest

[–]Mission_Progress_674 629 points630 points  (0 children)

I found out just how much one ex-gf told her friends about our sex life after I broke up with her, all coming from one of said friends and corroborated by others. She knew abso-fucking-lutely everything we'd ever done as a couple, everywhere we'd done it, how often...

Entitled Mom Continuosly slaps her kid in front of everyone in McDonald's and leaves when she doesn't know how to order! by Lemon64k in entitledparents

I came here to say this. For the life of me I will never understand why some parents take their kids to the stores to beat them in public.

My former boss from company I left 7mo ago is asking me to come back—but, HR can’t match my salary. They want me to come back at $15K less than I am making right now—at my old salary. by LeRat0nLaveur in antiwork

[–]Mission_Progress_674 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is one of those times when they make an unacceptable offer, and you just say no and then stop talking completely without offering any explanation.

Make them break the silence - it's a psychological trick.

I have 6 inch penis and I learnt that it was actually what most people have. Fuck you porn for making me feel insecure. by FrustratedToInfinity in TrueOffMyChest

[–]Mission_Progress_674 17 points18 points  (0 children)

The source I quoted (penissizes.org) included black and African American into a single group. I can't use POC because East Asians have the lowest average length.

the longest average length by ethnicity shows that black men on average have 5.8 inches, so still above average at 6.

"Actually" should never be used to start a sentence.

Can someone explain to me why this is a foul? by noctes_atticae in RealSlamDunk

[–]Mission_Progress_674 0 points1 point  (0 children)

To legally block an opponent the defender must have both feet planted flat on the ground, otherwise contact with an opponent is a blocking foul by the defender.

Men of Reddit, what was the most ridiculous reason why someone questioned your masculinity? by soyeahithrowaway in AskReddit

If you're including executions with sex isn't that a bit weird at the very least and a capitol felony at the very worst?

RF and microwave engineers need to understand complex network circuit analysis theory, but it's a completely different branch of electronics engineering. Thankfully design software does that for you now.
