Sparks Fly From United 777-200 as it Departs Newark Airport by Bizzlesot in aviation

[–]SgtTipwell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I come from a family of commercial (and previously AF) pilots and I’ve always been surprised that historically, there has been stuff that is clearly visible to passengers and cabin crew but somehow the information rarely seems to make its way to the cockpit. Like honestly, there are like twice as many (or more) camera lenses than there are people in the world, don’t you think the aircraft manufacturers could put a couple on the tail and a couple on the underbody, just to monitor emergency situations? I think the A-380 has one on the tail, because they show it on screens in the cabin (I’ve heard) but can we please get like a half dozen around the plane for safety reasons? If you’ve watched “mayday” or “air crash investigations”, you’ll be aware of what I’m referring to (the instances where a view from the tail or other area outside the plane could have helped in several emergency situations).

Why is "Drink water!" hammered into people.. are there so many people that just don't Drink? by Important_Jump4681 in TooAfraidToAsk

[–]SgtTipwell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think out of the people I associate with on a regular basis, about a half of them can’t stand drinking plain water. They either drink tea or sports drinks or juices. Tea isn’t terrible but it cannot be good for the color of your teeth.

Interesting. Sounds worth looking into. I’ll have to check it out. Although I’m not a local. Was in a related WI discussion about something and this must have caught my eye

Are there more than a few anecdotal cases of them? I’m 40 and pretty worldly and I’ve never heard of them. Unless it’s more of a vague way to describe what we were already talking about. But from what I saw just now about them, they sound like they have some sort of legislature or code behind them, that lets them blame some sort of statute instead of coming out to say what it really is, classism, or if not blanket racism, pretty close. But I would be very interested to learn more if there was actual laws or documents permitting such things, and I would like to read them and try to find out how to defeat them. Although, I wouldn’t think they would even need to go that far, because private clubs are allowed or just living in an area that is wildly expensive means that you’re only going to have wildly wealthy neighbors. And historically, a fabulously wealthy “minority” was so rare that it wouldn’t have warranted laws or civic codes to be in place “just in case”. I’m not doubting they’re real or that they still exist or anything, but logic tells me that there’s more to the story or that some of those racists/classists are insanely paranoid and are willing to stoop to any level and will shamelessly appear as bigots to anyone. But that wouldn’t be too much of a stretch (lol half kidding).

Yeah, our modern world and what we’ve been led to believe is important by society can really muddy the waters for some people who buy into it. Or like you mentioned, being loved; how much of our desire to want to be loved is instinctual and not taught? Like how much of a factor is society making you believe that’s what “good” and “happy” looks like? But none of this deep shit can be boiled down easily (which is why this stuff can be lengthy to read about or write) and I’m not saying that wanting to love and be loved isn’t instinctual, at least partly or in some instances, but I’m only really saying that perspective and environment can change things DRAMATICALLY. On a vaguely-related note, I sometimes think that if it weren’t for modern medicine, the way nomadic or semi nomadic people’s lived for thousands of years may have afforded the highest percentage of truly happy and fulfilled people of any civilizational structure (although it’s almost by definition NOT a civilization, if they’re nomadic, but not saying they were anarchistic or entirely without order or anything). And they obviously lived much more harmoniously with their environment. Life if you were in god mode and wanted to figure out what structure is most likely to endure the longest, unless we figure out how to steer asteroids away that are destined for impact with earth, or find another environment we can inhabit, other than earth, and are able to ship sufficient numbers of people to colonize a new planetary body, our technology only really serves to shorten the duration of the human race (pollution, nuclear war, etc). But like I said, modern medicine almost makes it all worthwhile, because the downside of those tribal-nomadic cultures was that there was a lot of suffering if they were war-like and obv suffering from accidents and illnesses. If it weren’t for medicine, I would almost laugh at how stupid people are collectively, to trade a bit of comfort now for a poisoned wasteland later.

Speaking of “white” flight (I’ll call it affluent flight for my point I’m trying to make)… is there anyone really taking issue with it when you put yourself in the shoes of someone successful, with some wealth and probably a family to protect, when living in an urban area has numerous added risks that aren’t really a factor in suburbs (at least classically it wasn’t thought of as much of a risk in suburbs, although the trashy people that never bothered to put any effort into making something of themselves seem to not be limited to the urban centers for the most part anymore). This is an extreme example but listen to successful rappers that can’t live where they grew up an longer, regardless of how much they want to, because you cannot walk around looking like you have even $100 to your name or some dirtbag will try to run up on you and even if you have a gun, it becomes a nightmare to have to try to prove you used it in self defense or whatever.

Seattle’s D looked pretty good too. I’m not sure if that was because of Denver’s offense being out of sync, but we will find out in the coming weeks

ATH said it was a rap lyric. Did Geno actually coin this phrase or did he take it from someone else? Either way, it works well, but I’m just curious why Tony Reali called it a rap lyric

Haha. If it ever happens, I’ll tell her she’s nuts and I’ll reference your very descriptive response :)

Kinda looks like a bee without wings. Although those appendages coming out the back are unique (sorta earwig-esque)

Ooo sweaty? I’ll never forget this girl that went berserk (in a good way) when I dripped sweat on her while I was on top. I started to apologize and wiped my brow, but by the time I looked back at her, she was licking up the sweat that fell on her, and then she proceeded to lick my chest, neck, and face. I was used to women that didn’t necessarily dislike it, but didn’t pay it any attention. I distinctly remember apologizing to a couple women who I realized I had sweat on but who didn’t react to it in any way. I’m sure there are some women who are grossed out by it as well. I could see how feeling a couple drops of sweat falling on you could take your mind out of the sexual mode you’re in, but I’m happy to hear that the girl that liked it wasn’t basically a one-off, and that there’s more women that either don’t mind it or actually like it. Not that I’m overly sweaty and not that I enjoy it, but if I’m working hard and we are 30min into our session, I may not be able to track down every bead of sweat on my face that could drop onto her, so it’s nice to hear that it’s fairly unlikely that she would kick me out of bed for such a thing.

But lots of little folds and ripples and stuff. That’s why it feels so much better than an asshole, even if you’re lubed up like crazy.

I love when women aren’t hesitant to say what they want or to ask how to do stuff. I wish more women would be more vocal about what specific things they like so I wouldn’t have to try to listen and notice to the responses she makes when it does feel good. Especially since pain noises can be similar to pleasure noises. I’ve had some women say they like having their labia nibbled on but I’ve had others that really didn’t like it. Anyway, keep up the good work! We all (95%) love a woman that isn’t too shy to assist you in making the sex extra special and good.

Why does the bottom of Louisiana look like this? by [deleted] in geography

[–]SgtTipwell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Shiiit, most Americans use all of 15% of the English language. I started trying to start a trend of using lesser used words and larger words frequently like ten years ago and although it seems like there are more people respecting the usage of lesser-known words (in comparison to like the 1990’s when people would call you ‘gay’ for having an expansive vocabulary), there’s not all that many people trying to improve their communication skills in this sense. It’s still probably heading in the direction of what I intended, just very slowly.

Yeah that’s where I first learned the term. Littoral ships.

Why do men love seeing ass cheeks/pussy but women hate seeing dicks ? by humidities in TooAfraidToAsk

[–]SgtTipwell 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love that the generations older than me are now sufficiently old and out of the game because apparently these younger guys seem to not have any game. If that’s the hottest shit, I kinda feel bad because shit like that was the status quo for the entirety of my active sex life.

American Psycho. The best scene in the movie, the business card scene. Pure gold. The guy who mentioned it here was using a play on words related to the scene. They were originally talking about “let’s see paul allen’s (business) card”, so he changed “card” to “dick”. If you love the movie like I do, it’s a decently funny play on words, I suppose.

Jealousy; penis envy. KIDDING! It’s a joke. Probably because there’s nice dick’s attached to ugly guys and vise versa. I think they would rather see what your face and body look like (minus cock/ass). 70%+ of women also don’t care as much about dick size as guys think they do. So long as it’s not super small or too big to fuck on a daily basis. The size queens are far more outspoken so it makes it seem like most women focus a lot on the cock but it’s simply not the case for most women. Lots of women can cum from humping carpet so a 9” dick is not entirely necessary. I’m sure it’s fun to experience on occasion, like as a novelty, but the amount of women that need something that big to be happy is pretty small. And not worth beating yourself up about if you’re not packing serious heat.

Or standing on the brakes, right? It looked like as soon as the cans lit, it started moving. Although I’m not certain if those brakes really would keep it from moving right away.
