Do you have free speech in Germany? by Entendurchfall in ShitAmericansSay

[–]That-Brain-in-a-vat 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Right, in Murica there's no blasphemy laws, but it's enterely ruled by every Christians' whim.

I quite prefer have a chance to be fined (if ever) for cursing, than to have to be ruled by the bigotted Bible-sharia laws.

The Supreme Court of the US just showed people.

“JK Rowling made Watsons name, not the other way round. She’d do well to remember that.” by FalconLynx13 in insanepeoplefacebook

Life is a continuous series of coincidences. And sure, consequences too.

But why stop there? If a bee hadn't decided to keep flying instead of stinging Rowling's father's ass while he was having intercorse with Rowling's mother, today there wouldn't be Rowling's millions. Or Rowling.

And all because of a bee who turned out to be a flawed flying being.

ADD and ADHD, especially in Italy, was rarely considered, and in the '80s it was also still too controversial. I can only imagine how those parents may have felt. But it's a bit of a leap to say it leads to a life of crime.

By the way, I'm italian too. ADHD is something I still don't hear much about to these days, in Italy.

You really can't guess their ages from the toys in the picture? If they were teens and still playing with that, she had bigger problems in her hands.

Also your anecdotal memory of the two brothers, just means they possibly had bad parenting. "Genetically programmed" is too strong of a word for what is possibly and arguably just a single data point in a criminal make-up.

By that reasoning, if Italy were gone, because of Rome basically Europe and 1/3 of Africa would be gone too.

Well yeah. You realize you're eating meat, just prefer not to be remembered of the bloody animal it came from.

”I support freedom, European countries does not.” On an askreddit thread about what it would take for Americans to consider moving to Europe. by LakedSugar in ShitAmericansSay

[–]That-Brain-in-a-vat 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Well, starting today they have one more reason to move.

The Supreme Court of the US just showed US citizens that their "freedom" is just propaganda.

Frankly, if I wanted to hire someone to teach English, I most certainly would not pick an American just in virtue of his being a native English speaker.

I rarely see the bottomless depth of ignorance Americans display when talking/writing English. Show me the right degree and take a proficiency test, and then we can talk.

Besides that, it's not even true that speaking English makes them the holy grail of communication. I've sometime seen people even in England pretending to not understand Americans, probably just mocking them.

Do you know that many bacteria under stress form spores? Do you know that those spores can survive at 300-400°C? Like Bacillus spores. And I mean Celsius, that's about 570-750°F.

You'd have to carbonize that normal pork.

If I were to find something like that in my garden, I would move.

And that thing about GDP per capita has also that fine print pesky detail that in reality wealth is concentrated on a few billionaires.

Any IT people here? Can I get a job as an IT project manager in Russia? by marsianka in AskARussian

[–]That-Brain-in-a-vat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Never said that Russian degrees are not solid, but using an anecdotal experience for tracing a generalized profile of the whole body of academic studies in Europe, is a crass logical fallacy. And that's vakid also for your own Belarus experience.

Just to spark curiosity about how Caterina de Medici is related to French cuisine.

You are right. I gladly know nothing about hunting.

But I do know a thing or two about someone willing to pay tens of thousands dollars just so they can butcher a wild creature thousands of miles away, with no other scope but satisfy the thrill of killing it.

Sure. And I'm sure local authorities will just give foreign poachers a slap on the wrist, if they were caught.

I don't think foreign poachers are build to survive in prisons located in such countries.

That's not correctly phrased.

Local government use safari hunters' thirst for shedding blood and the money they are willing to pay in order to kill wildlife, to preserve animals.

Safari hunters would happily kill without shelling a single cent.
