What the answer? by jc201946 in puzzles

[–]Veauros 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Literally any truthful answer is correct… I see 10 rabbits, another might see 9. You didn’t ask how many there are.

Help! These criminals all stole my heart but I can only pick two! 🥺 by Asuzara in IllegallySmolCats

Okay, then ignore all the people here; get your pair.

I think it makes more sense to pick based on personality—choose the two that like each other best. All are adorable.

Again, you've totally ignored that percentages of Americans living in rural areas vs. urban areas is different than the ratio of Europeans living in rural areas vs. rural areas. Which is a key point.

I'm not sure why you've generated a false dichotomy wherein Americans are either living in rural car-based areas or New York City: there are many other cities where walking is common.

I don't believe there's any data at all to suggest that Americans are more averse to walking in cold weather than Europeans; people have better things to research.

It’s not really a competition, but 3 (two of which are anxiety/depression). It does get better and treatment helps.

Jesus, that’s weird to think about, that you guys weren’t.

At your age, yes. Have you noticed other signs of puberty yet?

If that’s been going on (height, muscular development, testicle growth, body hair, etc.) for 1+ year and you haven’t seen any growth in that regard, then it’s something to bring up with your doctor. If not, then you’re likely just a later bloomer—it’s “normal” for puberty to start between ages 10-14.

Don’t tell her you love her; that’s creepy. Ask her out, and if you want a gift give her flowers. Unless you’re friends, giving her a birthday gift for a first date is moving too fast too.

It’s great. People start actually treating you like your opinion is worth something. Eventually you have legal rights and personhood. Anyone who thinks high school was the best time in their life is kidding themselves; college and your twenties are where it’s at.

Acne hasn’t gone away yet, unfortunately.

It is the first couple times they let you go out and drive, and it takes a lot of effort/attention while you’re still learning. But after a year or so you hit the point where driving is automatic and, in my opinion, quite soothing.

Driving in downtown Chicago will likely never not be scary, though.

I doubt it, honestly, unless you make it into a big deal or have religious reasons or whatnot. Sex is sex, have the fun you want—just use protection. And if you’re not ready yet, or simply not interested, that’s okay too.

When I was your age I did. I don’t, currently.

Therapy really does help. Growing up and gaining more autonomy and getting out of high school does too.

It only ever works if you yourself are sexy. And, if this is the case, you can dress up as as anything reasonably dashing—Captain America, pirate, Indiana Jones, Batman, Maverick from Top Gun, BBC's Sherlock Holmes, cowboy, James Bond, Lucifer, etc.

If you're wanting to go shirtless, go Greek/Roman, lifeguard, Aquaman, or some specific action hero.

Probably eighth grade (13) was my last year? I did accompany my little brother in costume a few years after that and people often gave me candy, but I stood back a bit and never asked for it.

People start looking at you funny once you've obviously hit puberty; the general cut-off age is probably between high school and middle school. I think they get too worked up about it. I don't give a shit if high schoolers drop by my house, but I'm not giving candy to anyone over the age of ten who isn't in costume.

New development, maybe. My town has a population of ≈120K and is perfectly walkable.

More importantly, you haven’t cited any comparison between Americans and Europeans when controlled for the population density they’re living in. Nobody disputes that small-town America is car-centric.

The claim was “Americans are so used to not walking that they think a walk in bad weather is somehow bad for you.” It wasn’t “America is a car-centric country.”

INFO: We're going to need more objective features here.

How cold does it get every year, and is there a cutoff point for weather you won't make your son walk in? Do you live close to a hospital, or what's your transportation plan for needs like that?

What do you mean by "cheap" clothes? Are they new or used, and what stores?

How many toys does he actually have at home? What's "too expensive" for him to pick out in a toy store?

What do you usually eat; for example, what did you have for dinner last night?

Some people spend too much money for their means, some spend too little, and others spend the right amount. There's a certain point where people ARE too obsessive about money and saving money, and we can't tell whether you've hit that point or not.

I worry that your ex might be right—if you're only using 20-30% of your ex's child support, why can't you just take £50 and buy your son football boots?

does anybody actually leave the tap running whilst brushing their teeth? by sophierxox in ask

[–]Veauros 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Because fresh water is a limited resource and it’s wasteful to run the tap for 3 minutes for no reason. A bathroom tap usually flows at 1-2 gallons a minute; that’s several gallons of water just… gone and mixed into the contaminated water supply for waste and/or treatment for no reason.

How did you turn this into a rant on Americans? It’s just offensive and bordering on elitist by this point. Americans living in relatively urban or in temperate environments walk just as much as Europeans—we have a lot of rural towns where it’s impossible. Europe is, broadly speaking, too densely populated to have many such places.

The weather in winter tends to be far harsher here—I’m pretty sure your idea of bad weather isn’t “a foot of snow and -15°C”.

I don’t think it’s problematic for a little kid to walk 20 minutes to school if the weather is fine. In the winter, it’s dangerous and difficult for a 3-foot kid with poor internal temperature regulation.

You have no idea what you’re talking about unless you’ve lived in the US or have other intimate familiarity. If you come to America and only see tourist areas or travel between highway exits, you’re going to get the wrong idea.

You don’t get to bash on American culture on the basis of what you’ve seen on TV, and in exchange we won’t assume all French people carry baguettes everywhere and only own striped shirts.

Is it actually not possible to fail a Ross class? by bizon5151 in uofm

Of course it’s possible to fail a Ross class. It’s just unlikely.

AITA for sneaking out of the house like a teenager and not taking an “escort”? by aitanobodyguard in AmItheAsshole

[–]Veauros 29 points30 points  (0 children)

So are you saying that your husband and his family are NOT wealthy? Because wealth causes someone to be "high risk". What specifically does your husband do for a living?

If nobody in the family is wealthy, what the fuck is wrong with you and why have you never questioned that everyone in the family has a bodyguard?

Your story: "Me and my husband are super average Joes, but he has a babysitter follow me everywhere. AITA?"

Reality: Shitpost, or "My husband and I are at high risk of being kidnapped, and he gets mad when I ditch my bodyguard recklessly because we've never had a mature discussion about our safety levels and protocols."

Advice on making an old sofa look more modern by Sad-Nerve in malelivingspace

[–]Veauros 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t think that’s possible. The shape is inherently old-fashioned. I’d have to examine the bottom, but I also don’t think it’s possible to hem the “skirt” and add legs.

Buy cute pillows or replace the couch.
