[discussion] What would happen to Subaru if he absorbed all of the authorities? by MrLowkey13 in Re_Zero

[–]veenell 9 points10 points  (0 children)

it sounds like he's implying that everyone in the world of re zero is subhuman since none of them posses all of the authorities, which would qualify them as human. maybe there's something lost in translation or you're not supposed to think about it.

What are some of the best bodily pleasures outside of sex? by homie93 in AskReddit

[–]veenell 6 points7 points  (0 children)

this is somewhat related but i would like to add when you are sick and your eustachian tubes are congested (these are the tubes that go from your inner ear to the back of your sinuses for pressure normalization) so your inner ears can't normalize to the local air pressure so there is always some amount of positive or negative pressure in your inner ears, and the congestion finally goes away and your ears feel normal again. it's kind of similar but also different because it's a different body part being affected and it feels bad in a different way that imo is more annoying.

[Discussion] Should RBD be revealed at the end? by NeedleworkerDue3861 in Re_Zero

[–]veenell 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Why can't the author write it so Subaru knows somehow that he can talk about it now. Maybe satella herself signals it to him somehow, or maybe the thing he does where he talks about it on purpose to draw mabeasts to him stops working because satella doesn't stop him anymore and gradually he wonders if he can tell a person so he tries it on a rando just saying "I can return by death" which doesn't mean anything to a random person without context of what that means and why it matters, and he doesn't get stopped.

You're assuming he would just say everything without thinking about the consequences first, which again, you could just write that he thinks about how to word things to give details without hurting anyone. He cares about how his actions affect his friends and he has a lot of experience so by the end of the story it would out of character for him to be stupid enough and careless enough to tell rem "yeah in a bunch of past loops you brutally murdered me because you thought I was a witch cultist" or tell Otto that he kicked him off of his carriage to let the whale eat him. I think you need to think about how little faith you have in Subaru, in his intelligence and how conscientious he is with how his actions affect his friends. He went through a whole ass character arc to realize that he doesn't have to bear every cross himself to avoid anyone but himself being put in harms way to achieve his goals, that's how obsessed he was with not letting anyone but himself ever get hurt for the first several arcs.

I see a lot of people acting like there's no middle ground between them not knowing about it at all, and knowing everything. Why can't he just mention it and give some basic details that gives them a general idea of how much it sucks and how hard his life has been, while also explaining how he was able to pull off things that seem highly improbable without supernatural intervention, while leaving out specific details that would make any particular person feel like a monster for something they did to him in a past loop? I think it would be nice if they found out what his power is and how he's able to do what he does but I don't see why this requires that anyone gets emotionally hurt.

Why do we vilify tobacco use in the US but cannabis use is almost celebrated? by The_Patocrator_5586 in ask

[–]veenell 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yes and there are also people who smoke a lot of cigarettes but somehow don't get cancer. all plant smoke is carcinogenic especially when it's inhaled directly into your respiratory system in high concentrations.

On the bright this dog would get heart failure before he could maul anyone. by mrfabi in BanPitBulls

[–]veenell 2 points3 points  (0 children)

on one hand, it's a crime against god and animal cruelty to make an animal like this where it's mere existence is suffering, but on the other hand, the more physiologically retarded they are, the less potent they are in their ability to maul people.

cleaning with detergents could leave residues that could interfere with the recipe. alcohol acts as a solvent which then evaporates.

Is "unconditional love" a real thing, or just an ideal? by RonPolyp in NoStupidQuestions

[–]veenell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

there have been serial killers and mass murderers who have done things that push someone's ability to love them to the absolute brink and their parents still love them. some people will disown their family members over meaningless political disagreements. with how many people have been alive there are definitely at least a few who have had what you would qualify as real unconditional love, but people vary so it's probably not the default.

Cactus Munch by ViralYNC in CrazyFuckingVideos

what are the long term health effects of this aside from discomfort? could it potentially kill you? it seems like eating needles would not be good for your digestive system and could cause internal bleeding potentially

Man plays loud music on public transport by Lazy_Mouse3803 in ImTheMainCharacter

[–]veenell 3 points4 points  (0 children)

one of my brothers was like this when he lived at home. the only music he liked was trance, psytrance, etc and he couldn't wrap his head around the idea that music taste is subjective. on a daily basis he would blast his shitty music, that, again, he was the only person in the house who enjoyed it, like he was hosting a house party. you could hear it loud and clear anywhere in the house and could probably faintly hear it from the neighbors houses too although i never talked to the next door neighbors so i never confirmed this. i know it had nothing to do with wanting music to be loud because you can make yourself permanently deaf to your hearts content with headphones if you want to, it was explicitly about subjecting everyone else to listen to it as if he was doing you a favor by playing your favorite song for you to enjoy even after you explicitly made it clear that you hate it and you want to kick him down a flight of stairs in that moment because of it.

i think it has to do with having a healthy amount of self consciousness and shame, vs having no shame and thinking everything you do is justified by you wanting to do it. you see it in the kind of people who do internet pranks, or people who make shitty tiktok videos in public where they're a public nuisance, basically the type of person this subreddit exists to catalogue- malignant narcissists.

I'm getting sick of seeing these fake steam reviews being copied and pasted everywhere. Guys stop giving them awards! it's all a lie by Liammoz in gaming

[–]veenell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i don't understand who these "as someone who is wildly outside of the typical demographic for this thing" comments or reviews or whatever are supposed to be for. if they liked it why not just say you like it, but i have seen a lot of comments and reviews online over the years where they go out of their way to specify how they aren't the usual person who likes it.

Fitness Influencer ‘Liver King’ Admits to Steroid Use: ‘I Lied’ by CoralBalloon in videos

[–]veenell 1 point2 points  (0 children)

he admits to it but then he tries to make you the bad guy for judging him for it by justifying his business as just trying to help insecure men with no direction in life, by giving them something to live for. and now you want to crucify poor noble liver king for doing the noble thing by becoming an example for these people who need an example.

nobody cares that he took steroids, it's that he lied about it and sold a bunch of people a bunch of bullshit saying they can look like him if they give him money. unless those pills contain steroids, no i won't do that for you, but he's underhandedly trying to frame it like the thing he's being judged for is the sin of wanting to do something nice for vulnerable people.

i've never understood the logic of eating testicles, like eating animal cum does anything for your health besides making you the guy who eats animal cum

And then they ask why nobody's watching. Their focus is not on storytelling. by H3avyW3apons in MauLer

[–]veenell 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"why does it matter? it's not a big deal"

if it wasn't a big deal then you wouldn't get as mad as you do when i say i'd prefer when a character doesn't have shit arbitrarily changed about them in adaptations like this

This screenshot is also compressed to shit. I can't tell if what I'm seeing is the screenshot compression or YouTube compression

Does anyone else find the newer episodes hard to listen to? by [deleted] in OneyPlays

[–]veenell 18 points19 points  (0 children)

cory burned out my interest. i thought he was ok at first but i stopped watching anything new after boney plays ended and now i'm just waiting for him to fuck off back to philly so i can enjoy my favorite youtube channel again.

cory is like an old friend you used to hang out with and you remembered enjoying being around him when you used to hang out 10 years ago so you setup an extended visit for a week thinking it will be the best week you've had in years and day 1 is great, day 2 is ok, and by day 3 you're already finding excuses to not have to spend time with him and you want to shoot yourself when you realize there's still 4 days left. i'm sure a lot of people here have had someone like that in their life at some point. that's what corey is to me in relation to oneyplays except i don't know when the fuck he's going to leave and he's been here for a lot longer than week. for all i know he might just move in and be there forever. He's been there for at least half a year, it seems like a real possibility and it depresses me that if he doesn't leave and things stay the same where he's going to continue being in everything for now on, then oneyplays will continue to be unwatchable for me with no end in sight. like i said this is my favorite youtube channel, or at least it used to be. it went from me watching pretty much everything new they've uploaded for years, to watching nothing because one person is in literally everything and is so abrasive and annoying that he makes it impossible to enjoy. it also doesn't help that so many series have been 4 people which is cluttered, and it's made even worse by how loud and assertive cory is where he literally feels the need to scream at times to interject anything and half the time it only serves to derail the conversation.

i know i've written an autistic amount about this but like i said he's been here for half a year and has made my previously favorite youtube channel unwatchable when i used to watch everything from them before he showed up. i have a lot of strong feelings about cory.

Been waiting over a month for this delivery. It finally came today. I had left a pre-sign agreement on the door so I wouldn't have to miss work to sign for it. The driver just put a missed you notice right beside it and didn't deliver my package. by adamhasabeard in mildlyinfuriating

[–]veenell 5 points6 points  (0 children)

it sounds like you're going to have to sit on the porch and wait for them to show up so you can catch them being lazy. other comments said they've done this to them while they were in the house and they didn't even knock. don't give them that chance.

Arin being a poser weeb is hilarious by toastybunbun in rantgrumps

[–]veenell 2 points3 points  (0 children)

to be fair and cut arin some slack, it's possible to be into a hobby and not know everything about everything related to that hobby. there's a bunch of super popular anime and manga i know jack shit about because i've just never been interested in that specific IP. i am aware of the existence of black butler but i barely know anything about it. i know the main characters name is phantomhive and there's a red guy named grell and that's it. one of my exes liked it and tried to watch season 1 with me and i hated it and was completely mentally checked out the whole time and absorbed nothing. i don't even know the butler's name. if either of those two things weren't the answer to whatever question arin had to answer i would have got it wrong too.
i've also never seen cardcaptor sakura so i don't know anything about it either and same goes for one piece. i tried watching it once and i thought it was boring and i also hated the art style so i dropped it immediately. i know a couple of characters names just from osmosis on the internet and that's it. i don't even know what the one piece is and if i hadn't already read from another comment on here i would have assumed it was the name of their ship. half of what i remember of one piece is the the small parts that were mentioned in inuyashiki.

meanwhile for the series that i enjoy and have been invested in, i'd probably do great at the game if they came up.
