I wasn't sure how exactly to ask this or word it. I just started randomly thinking about this so please no hate. Okay here goes.
Our skin complexions vary but ultimately we are all either some shade of white, brown, yellow, black.
Why are White Americans only acknowledged by their skin color as if that is all they are? It seems like people forget that white people are more than just a skin color and forget that being white is not their race. I've never met a single person in my life who was not made up of multiple ethnicities no matter their skin tone.
Edit 3: Okay now, so some people literally sent me texts saying i should kill myself and stuff for saying what i think about a certain group of people? I swear to god you all NEED to grow up and stop making everything political ffs! This is a subreddit for speaking about what we want isn't it? No matter how different it is from your opinion, you all should be ashamed of yourselves seriously to think you have the right to harass people just because they don't agree to your agenda!! I'm not even American I don't give a shit about your politics okay?? What I said is about public health, get it? You people from r/NoNewNormal need to get mental help, it's not okay to threaten people just because you think you're right. Like wtf people? What does wearing a mask have to do with freedom huh? You just like to be against common sense, and call everyone a "sheep" and stuff, i know you think your government sucks, idk much about it as I'M NOT AMERICAN. But this is not that okay? If you think what I said offended you for god knows why reason just downvote it and scroll by! Or is that taking away your freedom too? Ffs
People have to go out, there is work there is things to be bought, etc.. in my case because school is shut down we go to teachers in public centers for this kind of stuff (not all of them went online) So here i am, wearing my mask and trying to stay away from people, forced to sit in a room with 20+ people close to each other and only 4 are wearing masks! And thats the case everywhere! I rarely see one now and it just.. angers me. I can't imagine catching this shit because of some entitled idiot that i have no idea how are they even in school if they're that stupid, and the only time i've seen a teacher talk about this he literally said "i don't care whether you wear a mask or not" like dude.. i seriously hope you get it because you just encouraged all the idiots in front of you to risk their health and everyone around them. And because this year will decide what college i'll go to and it's too late now to change teachers because they're all ahead of this idiot and i'll miss a lot so i have to continue.. honestly this pandemic made it VERY clear on who has a working brain and who barely has 2 brain cells.
Edit: Wow, you guys seriously surprised me i didn't think many of you were here on this sub lol, i made my statement clear, and i made it even clearer in my replies down there, i won't reply to any of you again because it's pointless, you call science w... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was the IT director for a medium manufacturing company. However the owner fancied himself very skilled in the computers.
I was doing Yee random work when I found myself browsing the company website, (not something I do very often) when I am immediatly confused.
Our website is nice. It is very modern and updated. Not like it was the last time I checked. The confusing part.... I wasn't aware of a website update or change.
Checking out the website, I first noticed it was http, gross. But honestly we have an address and some pictures on our website, so who cares.
Did I mention it was upgraded? Turns out we now accept orders on our website for some of our more unique products.... Very fast and easy, put in your address, what you want, and your credit card data..... In our nice new fancy http website........
Never jumped out of my seat faster, mind racing with all of the lawsuits about to hit our desk...thank God we provided crap products, and almost no one ordered from us.
Addon: yes the owner had organized the update with a company that really should have known better. And after multiple months of working on this, never once felt the need to advise his head of IT. Cuz he understands computers and he has it all under control.
I think the average Joe is tired. They’ve been told their businesses are closed by guys with tailored suits and $300 haircuts. They get charged $35 by the bank if they’re $0.25 short. They see the price of gas go up from more taxes and their suspension is shot from the potholes. They see their elected officials making six figures and taking another month of vacation. They see the angry old rich guy saying they don’t deserve it. They see their kids’ swing sets get padlocked at the local park. They see another billionaire claiming zero income. They see the price of housing skyrocket farther out of reach. They see another rich guy buy a judge for a lesser sentence. They see a constant barrage of ads for things they can’t afford. They avoid the hospitals for fear of bankruptcy. They pay for college for half their life. They live in third-world countries with little chance out. They wonder what kind of life their kids will have. They see the homeless dying of OD’s on the streets.
They’ve been taking to the streets all year. They’re pent up. They finally see a chance. They have a glimmer of hope, a way out of the mud. They see a lotto ticket with a real chance of payout. They don’t know the rules. They don’t know the consequences. They just want a taste. They just want a piece. They want to feel like they finally won one just this once. They’re begging and praying for it, please, just this once.
This is so much more than good and bad tokenomics. This is so much more than with or without utility. This is a reflection of the current state. This is a dream, a chance, their one big shot. This is an uprising.
I think there’s a real good chance a lot of them are gonna get burned and that’s sad. But there’s no stopping it now. I hope they get some. I hope they get to enjoy the taste of that dream. I hope they see the green and it lights a fire in them. I hope if they lose it, they get determined to go get it back. I’m rooting for the average Joe. I hope they get theirs.
Husband grew up priveleged little white boy. I did not. He grew up in white-collar, suburban Akron Ohio, and I grew up blue-collar in Chicago. He likes to imagine himself as a "good liberal" but I can usually see through this bullshit by certain actions, attitudes, and terminology he uses. To my standards, he's not. One of these things is his use of the term "the help" when referring to store employees, waitstaff, cleaners, etc. This is enraging to me. I know from his own descriptions that his adoptive parents were snobs (both dead, never met them, thank God) and I'm sure he learned and perpetuates this term from them.
How do I go about explaining to him how infuriating and wrong it is to use this term? I feel hesitant to say anything because of my own "lower" class difference (even though he's technically broke, hasn't had a job in years, and I work full-time and am the provider, yet he's the "rich" guy), and that he'll whine or gaslight me and demand that I practically provide a dissertation why I'm bringing this up (he has an English degree, I do not).
So how’s your day going?
I've worn this "Darn Tough" pair of socks for about 2-3 days per week pretty consistently since 2013(for work).
They finally developed some small holes in them, and thin wear spots. Truth be told the holes were small and in a non critical area. But I was like hell, I might as well give this fabled warranty a try.
The form asked when I bought them so I kinda rolled my eyes and assumed I might end up with a prorated amount. I mailed them off for inspection and waited. Well fast forward a few weeks and I get an email with my warranty.
23$. A full refund for current MSRP of socks in 2021. Plus free shipping when I use it to check out.
Honestly a pair of high quality socks(that actually come in a real size... not "size 6-12") that you can't wear out, and get a full refund for, and made in America? Shit, what more can you ask for?
I feel like most people lose their socks before they burn holes in them for a chance to warranty them, but regardless. Their warranty is legit. A warranty for socks, a hell of time to be alive... hell of a time.
(EDIT... also an aptly named company)
Every melee turns into this stupid fuckfest of everyone just trying to get around behind everyone else.
If it's a STEALTH approach, and I don't see the person, then okay, but if it's someone I was just fighting with and they got around behind my back they should be able to hit me NOT assassinate me. ESPECIALLY if they aren't Marianne.
Basically, all pokemon get Shedinja'd. Their HP is reduced to 1 and they gain Wonder Guard in addition to their existing abilities. I can tell you right now Magic Guard will be banneded. So will trapping moves and abilities.
Revision #1: Mold Breaker only works on the innate ability of the pokemon. So for example, an earthquake from Excadrill would hit Rotom, but an Iron Head would not.
Revision #2: To avoid endless battles, the player with the most pokemon alive after 30 turns wins.
Edit Revision #3: Magic guard is not banned, but clefable and alakazam are. Sigilyph is your new emperor.
Sturdy (potentially bannable)
Heavy Duty Boots
Toxic/Will o wisp/Leech Seed
Pokemon immune to Toxic/Will o wisp/Leech Seed
Pokemon with few weaknesses
Fast Pokemon with a lot of coverage moves
