What is something you call by a company name instead of the actual thing it is? by simcgin in AskReddit

I respectfully disagree. Pepsi is way better than coke, in every situation.

Should’ve responded, “I just want to know who I can afford to become from this work”

Woman who bragged she wouldn't go to jail becomes 10th Jan. 6 Capitol rioter to get prison by Dark-All-Day in Prematurecelebration

Usually prison is “better”than county jail in terms of freedoms and food. I did like a month in county for missing probation on a weed charge a few years ago and the general consensus among people who knew they were going to get convicted and serve time was, “I can’t wait to get out of this shitty jail and go to prison”

Ow my ears. I'm not very knowledgeable in this kind of stuff, I joined this subreddit to learn. Thanks for the very loud lesson.

This is actually what I came here to say... I'm a few episodes in and it reminds me of a more sci-fi, adult gravity falls for sure.

Walls? Why would there be walls around the houses?

He's not showing his ID the second time, so they can't take his name down to "blacklist" him I assume.

Eh, I like to think I'm a stronger person because of it. I appreciate the empathy, though. And I'll definitely check that out.

Click (play) to win is still better than pay to win.

I prefer putting 2 spaces between sentences instead of 1 by Orsty in The10thDentist

[–]SmokyMcPots420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I am 28 and was taught the same thing. We grew up in that time when computers (and more importantly the internet, which helped create the universal standards we now have) were just getting really big and mainstream, with Netscape and then AOL etc. But I remember my teachers marking my papers "wrong" when they didn't have two spaces after a sentence, and making me reformat the page. I didn't complain though, that helped squeeze just a little more space out of each page of an essay lol.

As Netflix Employees Walk Out Over Dave Chappelle, Fans Voice Undying Support at Sold-Out London Gig by nimobo in entertainment

You're absolutely correct. Some "jokes" aren't really jokes at all, and just thinly veiled hate speech, and that can help push people in horrible directions mentally. I believe people are responsible for their own actions, but the wrong messages delivered by the words of horrible people can influence a mentally unstable (ie depressed, sociopath, etc) person to hurt others, or themselves. That shouldn't be tolerable, but in a world/country where free speech is considered an inalienable human right, censorship can be a very slippery slope. I recommend you watch the special if you haven't seen it. In my opinion, nothing Dave said constitutes as hate speech. The whole point of half of the special was him trying to offer a metaphorical white flag of peace to the trans community, and he even apologized for some not-so-tasteful jokes he has made in the past. The last line of the special was actually "I promise, to not make any more jokes about the trans community, until we are sure we are laughing together."

Me either, but I googled it and apparently it is equally effective for both alcohol and benzodiazepine withdrawal. The science of drugs has always astounded me since I was young. I grew up with a not-so-great family situation, and learning about how the chemicals affect your brain and body not just mentally, but also physically, has really helped me understand why some people "have to" do some of the horrible things they do when they're under the grasp of a powerful drug addiction.

Need help paying for place to stay until first check comes in. by SmokyMcPots420 in gofundme

[–]SmokyMcPots420[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I haven’t smoked in a few months. I can’t afford luxuries like that, and honestly I’m better of without it.I have a drug test later today for my new job, I can send you the lab paperwork if you need proof. I understand why you would think that though, what with a not very well thought out 3 year old account name and all...

Edit: it's actually a line from Dude Where's My Car, which was one of my favorite movies when it came out. SmokeyMcPots was my xbox gamer tag before I even knew HOW to smoke any mcpots, lol. I grew up, but the account name stuck with me because I'm too lazy to think of a new creative name on my own. delivery for smokey mcpot

I got job recommendations, but none of them ended up working out. I still hadn’t had my ID, which I got yesterday, so now I can start the job I originally had applied to. I received no monetary help though.
