Although this wasn’t the worst, it most certainly could have been, and always comes to mind when questions like this are brought up.

I was on a job site. A half dozen houses were being built simultaneously. I walked too close behind an excavator, which abruptly turned. I nearly got hit in the head by the back end of that thing - which is all ballast and has tremendous mass. I almost got myself sent to the emergency room, and it would have been 100% my fault.

At the moment, I was just glad that none of the guys on my crew saw me pull such a rookie move. I didn’t think about it seriously until I got home that day. That excavator would’ve shattered my cheap plastic construction helmet like it was an eggshell. I could have died.

I work retail. Contrary to popular belief, I DO NOT always know whether a particular item is in stock or not, unless I consult the computer. I do not have the exact price of every item committed to memory. I don’t even know the expiration date of every single coupon. Some customers think I suck at my job, but I haven’t gotten any complaints from the people who pay me, so…

It takes a while to learn, but now I’m glad I know where some of the weird, obscure items are that people rarely ask for. It’s nice not to have to scour the store thinking “I just KNOW I’ve seen it around here somewhere…”

What does the world think of India?

I am an Indian and I have noticed that Indians are way too proud of their country for some reason and at the same time lack any civic sense towards it, they are extremely loud and extremely proud. We feel like the world revolves around India and our culture is superior to that of others. Also, a considerable chunk of the...

I hope that India doesn’t make the same mistakes my county (America) made, such as trying to be a major international player while ignoring the people in need at home. They’re already going that way, but there’s time to change course.

Also, I’d like them to fix their issues with Pakistan. That border was drawn by the British specifically to cause problems, and falling into that trap is letting the previous colonizers win.

They’re willing to take this risk for less than $4? What kind of miserable salary are these military employees being paid?

I was going to make some snarky comment, but I was completely distracted by the guy in the brick-patterned suit and matching tie. WTF? Maybe he was going for some kind of wall reference? Where did he even get that abomination?

Our country is full of idiots.

Pentagon ran secret anti-vax campaign to undermine China during pandemic (www.reuters.com)

The U.S. military launched a clandestine program amid the COVID crisis to discredit China’s Sinovac inoculation – payback for Beijing’s efforts to blame Washington for the pandemic. One target: the Filipino public. Health experts say the gambit was indefensible and put innocent lives at risk....

Goddammit. Just to be clear, Pentagon: this is a stunt Cobra Commander would pull in a G.I. Joe cartoon, not something real people actually do.

I'm actually more scared of the sodium content on those things.

Upvote for this. I started throwing the “flavor packet” away, and adding my own spices and seasoning, to avoid the ridiculous amount of sodium.

It highlighted remarks from the other leaving judges who said they still believed in the independence of the courts.

Okay, but where were they when they made those “everything is fine” statements? If they (or their loved ones) were still in HK’s/China’s jurisdiction, those quotes don’t mean much.

I can understand if older people are confused by trans issues. That seems fair. I mean, just a few decades ago, people hardly even mentioned them unless they were making a joke.

When it comes to hate, though, I’m with you. At the end of the day, these are still PEOPLE we’re talking about. If they’re doing something you don’t approve of, then just don’t do it yourself. It doesn’t get any easier than that. No hatred required.

Warn? WARN? The arrogance is astounding. Just who do they think they are?

One of those dipshits said “we’re not a banana republic”. That’s correct. Even legislators in those countries know that shitting on their own legal system is counterproductive, but that hasn’t been the case here!

I’m so sick of these crybabies tearing the country apart simply out of spite. Learn what consequences and facts are, you pathetic whiners.

Do I Need to Watch Discovery To Enjoy SNW?

Hi all! Long time Star Trek fan here with my first post. I’m gonna start out by saying that I promise I’m not a hater of Discovery at all.

“Significant enough” are the key words here.

Absolutely not. SNW stands on its own quite well. Sure, watching Disco will fill in some details for you, but SNW covers the key points by itself. You will not be left scratching your head if you watch SNW without watching Disco.
