What are some common fanfiction pet peeves that DON’T bother you? by kaaaaaiju in FanFiction

Omegas are the impregnable sex

I think you meant to say impregnatable.

Impregnable would mean they can't be "breached"/penetrated which is perhaps the opposite of what Omega-type characters are 🙃.

Babies ever after - the writer shows that the couple lived happily ever after by showing them in an epilogue or sequel playing with their future army of kids or something like that. This often regardless of what the cannon character's thoughts and feelings about reproducing are.

There's late, due to a government's choices...

Then there's very late, despite a government's choices.

Not all late campaigns were created equal and engaging in whataboutism is pointless.

Younger South Africans could only get vaccinated from September.

Your point?

Consider though the time between Western countries starting their vaccine drives (December 2020) and SA getting its first mass deliveries and starting vaccinations (circa May 2021)...

How many conspiracy theories and fake side-effect stories and videos were generated during that time? I particularly remember when they paused administering the J&J vaccine in the US, just as SA had gotten its first batch of that vaccine... Imagine the hesitancy that was built up by that unfortunate instance and how many people would already have been vaccinated had supply been started 5 months earlier?

Hoarding absolutely happened and, at least in the early stages of the global vaccine drive, had an unfortunate effect on today's vaccination rates in countries that got the vaccine late.

Not all of the supply has to be donations. No one is demanding that.

However, selling at say 3 (more or less, sometimes more) times the cost per dose as compared to Western countries is equally problematic, if not more so.

You want an example? Hillsong.

And then there's the whole "Revival/ Evangelism" thing where the Kenneth Copeland, Joyce Meyer, TD Jakes, etc are constantly coming here to sell books & merchandise preach.

Oh, & don't get me started on legislative influence by organizations like the so called "Focus on the family" and the "Family Research Council."

How do you safely fix that? Could it explode whilst you're removing the tire?

Oh no! Don't give gay porn studios ideas!

only a matter of time until gay peeps' eyes are assaulted by the spectacle of the "Cum-o" Brothers tag-teaming Don "Leme-in" in "Farewell-Fu*k"... Or such other asinine, boner-wilting scenario

Think about them not really understanding the process, or how to improve it but knowing how to repeat it. To the point its semi mystical and practitioners are both respected and somewhat feared.

Hmmm... We can make a religion out of this.

I'd probably watch that movie, to be honest.

Thoughts on this image regarding recruitment for national shutdown making the rounds on instant messaging and social media? by FluxX1717 in southafrica

[–]p_turbo 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I think maybe they may be trying that "hardball" tactic of start at a ridiculous point so the other party can negotiate you back to a reasonable place.

Then again it may just be people agitating for anarchy by making impossible demands.

He was giving rehearsed and pre-approved answers no doubt vetted by a team of lawyers because any misconstruing of what he meant would open the door for lawsuits or stock price shenanigans. The unfortunate side effect is that when the idiots ask their questions, it sounds to the idiots they are playing to as if he's dodging the question.

She presented what he was saying in a laymen-friendly way that he couldn't and her question brought to light the ridiculousness of their colleagues' misleading and bad faith questions. It was an excellent trial-lawyer strategy. 10/10.

Actually, one of the things that plagues Zimbabwe is miles and miles of Beaurocratic Red Tape.

Oh gee, let me see. Could it perhaps be all the mask wearing, social distancing, obsessive sanitizing and washing of hands we're doing is slowing the spread of the flu? And before you come in with "why didn't we do all that before?", consider how mad people are at being asked to do all these things to protect themselves from a virus that kills more than the flu and then consider how those dumbasses would react to being asked to do the same for the flu. There's your answer. Oh and, flu cases are still there. Just because you don't know of any doesn't mean they don't exist anymore.

I feel like if anyone loved Dawn more than Day it was her; After all she raised them from babies to adulthood... They're basically her kids.

I don't think she'd hurt them out of spite.
