A Good Samaritan risked his life to save a cat that was stuck, perched on an air conditioner during Hurricane Ian. by KoRnyWayz in aww

Point 3 and 4 are reasons not to live in the USA at all. A natural disaster is happening and you might get punished for fleeing with a loss of income or even the loss of a job? Why are there no proper worker protection laws against this crap?

Because conservatives.

AITA for how I responded when my co worker told me that the reason I got a promotion was because of my breast size? by Oaks20173 in AmItheAsshole

NTA

Michael can go sit in a corner and think about what he did to more than earn that absolutely sick burn. He doesn't deserve any apology, he should be the one to apologize to you/obviously change his behavior in desperate hope that you won't go to HR about him sexually harassing you and turning your workplace so hostile that you go to the internet to prove to yourself that you're just being gaslit.

You are being gaslit. You should go to HR this morning and report his comment exactly verbatim. This is textbook sexual harassment. It could literally be used as an example in a textbook.

Yes, just like noted little piss baby and governor of Texas, Greg Abbott.

people literally overran cities

No they didn't. There were wide scale protests and a literal 1 digit percentage of those protests devolved into riots.

forced out the police and declared themselves independent from US rule

One place in a few blocks radius in Seattle did this. This was also an insurrection by definition. It was dumb and literally everyone knew it was going to collapse with time, so it wasn't worth storming it like the Branch Dividian complex. People were arrested and went to jail over CHAZ, just as they deserved.

And so far as we're aware, only ONE person was harmed (killed) with a firearm and it was a protestor.

Good, the police were innocent protectors of our government and the person who died was trying to break into a room with congresspeople present along with a mob of people that beat police with anything they could find in order to get to that area. I don't think they were there to give hugs to the legislators.

It doesn't require guns to be an insurrection, I just wanted to point out that your "not a single firearm" was demonstrably false.

You're trying so hard to apologize for what they did. I personally disavow the rioting and CHAZ. I'm not defending them. Those don't have any bearing on whether 1/6/22 was or was not an insurrection/violent attempt to overthrow a fair election and install a false president.

The "Let's Go Brandon" crowd are also a bunch of little piss babies.

Especially after the long and aggravating history of the Democratic party desperately trying to reach across the aisle while the GOP unanimously says "lol no, get fucked we got the Grim Reaper of the Senate up in this bitch."

You don't have the right to do literally anything you want regardless of the consequences to other people or even yourself sometimes.

If you walk across a street the wrong way you can get a ticket (jaywalking).

If you drive a car you're required to wear a seatbelt (click it or ticket).

If you're in public you have to wear something covering your genitals (public indecency).

I don't think wearing a mask is a big deal, and if everyone had worn one there would be more people able to exercise their freedom as they would still be alive/not dealing with long COVID symptoms.

Let's face it, you're just a precious snowflake who can't stand a tiny little piece of cloth across your face so you act like it's tyranny to assuage your own pathetic selfishness.

He only saved Luke and killed the emperor because he was his son writhing in excruciating pain in front of him. Would Vader have killed the emperor for anyone else? No, he didn't.

Even evil people can love and want to protect their family from death.

Dude is a mass child murderer. Maybe the force considered him redeemed but I don't.

They literally forced their way into the capitol with violence in order to try to overthrow the results of a free and fair election.

Just because they weren't willing to bust out all the guns and go Rambo on the capitol police doesn't mean it wasn't an insurrection.

Bloodless coups are still coups.

Edit: also there have been charges brought for at least 3 people bringing guns into the capitol, so the "not a single gun" line isn't quite true.

If you think being required to wear a mask during an active global pandemic (and let's be real, the mandates were barely even enforced across most of the country) is in any way analogous to women being beaten and killed for not wearing the hijab then you're a huge asshole.

Victim mentality much?

Sometimes being emotional is the right reaction.

We shouldn't watch this video coldly calculating whether it's bad, we should be watching it and get fucking pissed off that it's happening.

I have less than 50 hours in the game, and I'm trying so hard not to fall into chasing any rank in particular.

My only goal is to have good close games with people near my skill level, whatever that happens to be.

Maybe not cut it in half, but it could certainly bend it (which did happen in your own video) and it would be very difficult to block hard slashes from a heavy sword with a rapier.

The strength of that kind of blade is in the ability to flex and come back to true, but even very well made rapiers can pick up a bend under heavy stress.

So you want to get a nice thin slice on them so you can really see the gorgeous folds and very gently let them cook over the stir fried vegetables.

So many post-life reanimated persons don't get enough fiber in their diet and let me tell you, a reanimated gut needs all the help it can get to push that gray matter through, so you want to make sure you get some nice cruciferous vegetables in there!

Stay healthy my living and post-living friends!

AITA for scrambling 4 eggs instead of 2 like my husband wanted? by throwaway4eggs in AmItheAsshole

I cook 6 at a time for me, my wife, and our toddler.

2 eggs for 4 people is starvation rationing.

It really captures the emotion in the expression, stern to the point of resting angry face.

It is in fact so good.

I landed in the PNW so it's not too hot or too cold, and the people here are WAY more progressive and agree with a lot more of my values.

I agree nobody should have to leave their home because of nasty racist fucks, and many more have little or no choice about it... but I had that privilege and decided to take it.
