>guns kill people
Not to be an asshole and not my thread t. not amerifag but aside from loose gun regulation I'm pretty sure it's mostly American (hyper)individualism that feeds into apathy and general disregard for human life leading to mass shootings. Corny argument that people kill people but guns aren't the problem since responsible gun ownership can be possible and widespread across a nation if culture permits

No. 1508412

Samefag to add I think it's also a mental health and immediate support system concern, since most mass shooters are manchild retards I would think they don't have quality relationships to lean on, especially in terms of immediate relatives probably stemming from a disattached family culture. Idk, I see the expectation of leaving home/getting kicked out immediately at 18 and also the widespread phenomenon of adult children putting their parents into retirement homes instead of taking care of them personally to the point it's a widespread joke to be indicative of families not being an adequate "buffer" for the mass shooter to keep from acting out on innocent people.

No. 1508421

Duh, I think there should be better gun regulations but that's clearly not going to happen. I never said "guns kill people". Did you take my post too literally and think that I think guns are growing legs and walking around shooting people or something? I hate that whenever someone talks about the gun problem there's always some retard like "well actually!".

I wish it was easy like how most britbongs have it but if you live in areas with cartel/gang violence you’re fucked either way.

I heard this from a herpetologist I know so I hope I don’t get it wrong but I believe the bald eagle population is coming back because the US government outlawed using DDT. DDT was causing bald eagles to lay eggs with soft shells so no matter how much they nested and bred their chicks would never hatch because the shells were fucked up due to DDT. I had no idea that was a major factor, I thought it was just habitat but apparently not.

Are there any safety nets if you get laid off when company is downizing or when it is employers' fault and not employee's?

Please don't remind me. And the "employment lawyers" don't do shit.

First off, that's so awful and I hope you and your husband are in a better place finance wise. It's true, sadly. Most states in America are 'at-will' meaning they can fire you for whatever reason.

I was homeless 3 times. First time because my parents kicked me out and I had nowhere, even being on the streets for months and trying to get any job possible was a pain in the ass

Second time was because I quit a job due to sexual harassment they did nothing about, had nowhere to go and despite being homeless for months every last penny I had went to apartment application fees that was just basically "wellll our wait-list is 2 yrs so tough luck"

3rd time was when I was supposed to live with my fiance's parents during a college break a couple of weeks before we moved into an apartment and they reneged at last minute because my fiance didn't get the COVID vaccine fast enough and I was homeless for 3 weeks while pregnant because the official move in date was going to be much later than when we started our jobs in the city

Can I just say how absolutely fucked this is? Does this seem weird to other Americans? I actually wanted to leave home at 18 (because reasons) but some of my sibling wanted to stay and the attitude change from our parents likel literally the day after they turned 18 was crazy. They basically made it an untenable option. My friend stayed with her parents and chipped in to the living costs but she kept her childhood bedroom and everything then moved out when she bought a house in her 30s and it sounded like a much nicer situation. And her parents seemed happy about it while my parents were constantly sad about being lonely. This aspect of american culture makes no sense to me.

I hope not, I can't imagine coddling a son and letting your daughter be open to rape, trafficking, addiction, general homelessness, etc. The woman she was talking to was agreeing and saying that her own daughters are also horrible but her daughter now has a daughter of her own, and lamented the fact that the daughter gets along with the mother and not her (the grandmother), like I wonder why.

No. 1515225

America has an awful problem with parental entitlement and I feel it's partially due to said parents being memed into having children just because it's expected of them in order to be a contributing member of society regardless of whether or not they're actually suited to be a parent. So they resent their children for having to provide them with the bare minimum of care (feeding, clothing, and housing them). It's almost borderline narcissistic behavior from them. They expect that when their child turns 18 they magically should be able to be independent based on some arbitrary social rules, without even having provided them with the guidance or assistance to develop in a way where they could be financially independent. I see this entitlement mostly from the parents who did the least in raising their children, the few who actually had an active role in parenting beyond providing the bare minimum tend to be more realistic and understanding, and might work something out with their children such as letting them stay if they're in school or working part time to save up and move out when they're financially able while contributing to the household or at least not causing issues for the family.

No. 1515230

In addition, I hate that there are so many parents who guilt their children who didn't even ask to be brought into this world, saying that they owe them for all the money spent providing this bare minimum of care. It's not all that uncommon for those parents to ask their kids to literally pay them back whatever arbitrary number they claim is owed and take from their paychecks (which is different from them working and contributing to the household themselves). The culture needs to change, it's so sad to see those people struggling on the streets or putting themselves in dangerous situations just to survive because their parents are selfish out of touch cunts, sometimes they even perpetuate the cycle with kids of their own because they're bitter and cope by convincing themselves that it somehow made them stronger and "better" than others when it's really just mismanaged trauma.

I find it pretty horrifying that Iowa conservatives apparently expected pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women to survive on processed food and canned salmon.

This is beyond fucking retarded. Pregnant and nursing women need to eat animal protein, saturated fat and get enough B vitamins because it's essential for the formation of the brain of the child.

I tried Jollibee for the first time last year and was extremely disappointed. Maybe I went to a bad location but the chicken was perfect EXCEPT it tasted like it had absolutely no salt.

I was on WIC when I was first pregnant and it fucking sucks. They give you 40 a month in fresh fruit and veggies and a good chunk at the time at self checkout they will only cover a couple of bucks even when you buy what they claim they cover. My baby was on a special formula (medically needed) and WIC ONLY covered Similac (which has been recalled dozens of times, specifically the one my baby was supposed to use and she was premature). Me and OT had to fight constantly with WIC since they kept recalling or discontinuing the needed formula by Similac and WIC kept giving me trouble to even pay for enfamil or store brands.

That half of all formula sold goes to mothers on a food assistance program is already pretty insane since it shows there's a ton of impoverished mothers. Then they added state-sponsored monopolies on top of it.

Late replying.. but grew up in Oklahoma…In OK food stamps could only be used on things with a barcode and a "nutrition facts" label, at least thats how it was a decade ago when I did retail there. I thought the whole country went by that. No apples by the lbs, fresh veg, nothing that needed weighed. Only things packaged with a nutrition facts (no 'supplement facts' so a coke is covered but some energy drinks might not be). I am shocked that is wasnt this way for everyone…and absolutely disgusted that it remains that way or will become that way for so many. Christ.

There should be incentives for WIC to allow women to buy organic or European formulas without tons of crap in it, not just that but also proper lactation supplements and herbs instead of just giving women with low supply/NICU babies unrealistic pumping schedules. There's so much ignorance surrounding breastfeeding in America. Or babies that are already sensitive/have allergies or other issues and need to use special formulas are now forced to used a formula company constantly getting sued and no one is doing anything

Don't forget it's not a crime to just not pay your employees. You can sign a contract agreeing to pay someone, make them work, and just never pay.

I've come across an article about US college debt and I can't wrap my head around tuition fees and student loans.
Are the loans (federal and others) just normal loans that you have to pay off no matter what like a mortgage or idk car finance? Or is it more like a tax? For reference - I'm a UKfag and while our tuition fees are absolutely extortionate they work kinda like a graduate tax - you don't pay anything unless your salary is above a certain threshold. The money gets taken out of your salary automatically kind of like a tax meaning that you can graduate and just forget about it entirely. I've graduated 3 years ago and I've never checked my student loan balance, I don't even know how to do that because nobody ever told me kek. After 20 odd years the debt gets written off. If you become unemployed or go below the threshold your repayments stop and there's 0 consequences if you never manage to repay it (like most people kek).
I get the impression that in the US it works more like a regular debt where you have to make repayments + pay interest even if you're unemployed or earn very little, is that right? Conversely, do some poor people basically decide to skip university education altogether because it's too expensive? That's what it sounds like but it's so wild I need confirmation or explanation from an actual American lol. It's just hard to believe that in the US you can basically be too poor to go to university.

No. 1518956

it depends on the loan, there are several types and within each type there can be multiple repayment methods, but that loan stays with your life. if you file for bankruptcy you still will owe this debt, it doesn't go away. there are some rare exceptions, like if the school closed down. there is $2 trillion in student loan debt in the usa.
it all has interest rates except some specific federal loans which don't, and private loans are usually higher interest rates than federal.
yes, people don't go to school because they cannot afford it. they either go to a trade school instead or pursue no further education, or at least no further degree than high school diploma or GED.

No. 1518961

Yep, it doesn't matter how bad the education/employment is, you have to pay back your loans. Even bankruptcy does not get rid of them, and it gets rid of every other type of debt.
There is a clause that if you pay the minimum payment, which is based on your income, for twenty years, the government considers your loans paid. But it considers the unpaid portion to be a gift from the government, and you have to pay taxes on the amount unpaid. So if you had $500,000 forgiven, then you have to pay taxes on $500,000 like you'd earned it.

People should forget about university and go into trades instead. When I lived in Alberta they push trade school as a good opportunity.

okay? you can buy pasture raised eggs, and i do. maybe the reason people buy food raised like shit is because of the giant wealth disparity in this country, i dont really like to apply morality to food because basically every food is exploiting something/someone. most vegan staples are harvested by people being paid pennies a day and are grown in monocultures on land that has to be deforested, and most meat in this country is raised on factory farms. i guess im just sick of people being shamed for individual choices like it actually changes anything, and as if everything you could buy at the store isnt "unethical" in some way even if its just the people working at the store being treated like cattle themselves. not trying to sperg at you i just have a lot of thoughts on this i guess.

Amtrak can be unreliable if you’re doing anything that requires timing.

I’ve taken the Amtrak before between two major cities that are relatively close together when I didn’t feel like driving in traffic. But that’s about all it’s good for.

Last summer I was taking a trip to the other side of the country and I compared cost and time for driving, flying, and Amtrak. Amtrak was by far the worst option. Ticket costs were comparable to how much I would’ve paid in gas, but driving would’ve taken 18-20 hours whereas Amtrak would’ve taken 30+. Ultimately I dropped a little extra cash for the convenience of a flight

Also want to point out that Amtrak doesn’t cover as much of the country as you think it does. The two nearest stations to where I currently live are both an hour and a half drive away. On top of that one of those stations is underserved and basically useless most of the time. Meanwhile, within that same range, there are 3 major airports.

FUCK NYC. I fucking hate NYC. I will never go back to NYC. Central Park was the only nice part. The subway is scary and disgusting and ratchet as fuck. The whole city smells like garbage and piss. The people are ruder than Parisians. All the streets are hideous. The buildings/skyscrapers cast a shadow over everything making it seem depressing and dystopian.

that's the united states in whole. it is a country built for and after cars.

This article is dumb as shit and I don't want to give the author any credit but the one valid point she makes is that Europeans have gotten extremely hostile to Americans and it's gotten much worse in the past 10 years ago. When I traveled in the early 2000s and would mention I was American people would generally respond with "oh, that's cool, whatever," and my dad had a good experience studying abroad in college but nowadays you basically just make yourself a target for mockery if you're obviously America, particularly by young people in Western Europe. It kind of makes me sad because I used to enjoy myself a lot more traveling to see my relatives in France and it just feels like more and more of a chore to interact with friends of my cousins because they're going to make the super hilarious jokes of asking why I'm not fat and how pursuing a Master's degree here is just a high school education in Europe.

Yep, it's mostly just the French. In most other European countries people really won't judge you differently just for being American. Even if there's some extent of 'Americans are fat/dumb' stereotype going on, the vast majority of people won't let that affect their judgment of any individual Americans.

What this anon said. The french are pretty hostile to non-french speakers in general and hate everyone lmao. Imo think the best place for Americans to visit is the Uk, especially London.

Americans will spend their every last penny ~traveling~ though. Traveling is fun and fine but it causes major inflation to the city. I also swear to God corporations go out of their way to make an employees commute as terrible as possible. Traveling/agency employees get paid often 3 times as much instead of having incentives to hire locals. During summer the town I lived in would buy/rent out massive homes to fly a bunch of useless employees (they only let work 5-15 hours a week mind you) instead of just hiring people in the area.

You can literally go to /meta/ and some of the threads here on /ot/ and see that multiple anons have complained about it.
Don't go around calling anons newfags if you need to be spoonfed this information, dickhead. You literally just look like one of those overcompensating newfags yourself.

The French might be the most notorious for hating Americans but trust me you run into this attitude in a lot Europe, even in countries with a lot of emigration to the US. You're really naive if you think that isn't true. But as someone who used to work in hospitality though I think tourists of absolutely every nationality you can think of are terrible. Even Japanese people who are stereotyped for being excessively polite I've had awful experiences with. People just feel more comfortable being on their worst behavior in countries they feel are inferior to theirs.

No. 1531997

–like, seriously, our politicians heads are basically empty. All they know how to do is appeal to people or companies for support or money, they do not know anything else. Empty words, practiced mannerisms – they're basically the original social media influencers. Don't know how to get anything done, don't know how most of the population lives, don't know how to do their actual jobs, don't even know they're not doing their actual jobs because they think their job is to be on campaign as that is the only time they do anything resembling work. They're mentally just not all there. The lizard-overlords meme is popular because the people running things are so out of touch with the rest of humanity they might as well be reptilian.

Have any of you been to Canada? It was my first time last summer and was shocked at how unfriendly everyone was. Talked to some of my friends and they said Canadian politeness is viewed as respecting and separating other cultures and ignoring people rather than blending them and it just seems so cold and bizarre to me. I’m from a southern state (but north enough actual southerners would balk if I described myself as one) so that can also be a part of my socialization, but the second I was back in even northern states it felt “normal” whenever I stopped. I’m not a loud or overwhelming person, I just felt like a freak for accidentally making eye contact and smiling, asking a question in stores, or saying excuse me. Idk it came up again and I feel weirdly defensive over them leaning on being better Americans and then sucking the multiple times I’ve been up there. I promise I don’t suck, look weird, and wasn’t going anywhere obnoxious- this is at grocery stores or walking around during the day in a normal neighborhood in Ontario.

Isn’t that le triggering ? also, aiden is such a meme name like max in trans communities I feel like she would have to be extremely retarded or un self aware to pick that name, and since she became an incel 4chan tier shooter my guess is she was active on online spaces and thus would know Aiden is a mocked TIF name.

Well yeah, this country is a fucking joke. It's hugely embarrassing.

They (NRA, the government) don’t care about “mexican and black gangs” doing mass shootings because the innocent people they are killing is other Mexicans and black people. Once we get a nonwhite mass shooter who shoots up and targets a white school Im sure then the government will magically put a stop to this. Honestly though the government don’t care about white on white gun violence crime either because this should’ve been stopped after sandy hook.

America is a "racist ass country" because it's so multicultural. Personally I don't think people of many different cultures can live together in peace and harmony. It just doesn't work. It's better when everyone has their own country, their own culture, their own language etc. There is way too much friction when you have people with wildly different believes, wants and needs living together in one place. There will never be a post-racial society where everyone of every color lives together happily. You see it now in Europe with crime going up and racial tensions rising because there are suddenly so many immigrants and refugees that don't get along with the local population. In 50 years they will have the same problems as the US now.

Firearms are a great equalizer for women if women are properly trained with them.

This is a class issue though. Unlike the /pol/tard roaming this thread, I believe class (not "culture") is the main issue America needs to address and race has often been used to obscure the ongoing class warfare in this country.

>Not even just white people, it’s literally immigrants from third world countries and countries in Africa too who come here with a superiority complex over black Americans. It’s terrifying.

I can't speak for all immigrants, but my parents are non-white immigrants and I believe the reason why it seems they have a sense of superiority is because they haven't experienced the generational trauma that black americans have. That being said, I do think more needs to be done to stop showing black americans as victims because it's demotivating and broadcasts a poor image of black americans internationally. I feel like black americans are the target of pity, especially from liberal whites. You will never be seen as equal to someone who pities you. There are many rich, intelligent, and otherwise successful black americans in this country but it's hard for many people to believe that because of the way the media frames black american life. I see some changes recently though.

>All the civil rights acts laws that were passed actually help out immigrants more than black Americans who have been in this country forever!

I dunno about that. My parents were lucky enough to have a community of immigrants who helped each other out because it was very hard for my dad to get a bank loan and start his business when he came here. Early in his career, he would lie about having an American boss just so that people would feel more comfortable doing business with him.
I do, however, agree with you that a more comprehensive coverage of black history needs to be taught as part of American history. I know for a fact it's not taught uniformly across our nation. Some books straight up skip over everything between the civil war and MLK. I have friends who grew up in the midwest who were literally taught the civil war was about "northern aggression" and that slaves enjoyed being slaves.

People who had no ties with each other were lumped under a common name, and they ended up acting exactly like diverse people with diverse opinions and diverse goals always do: They fought each other more than outsiders.

maybe i should posted this in unpopular opinions but i still believe that race trumps class in america. Even the poorest of immigrants fought to be labeled as white in this country because they knew being labeled black or anything adjacent to black americans meant immediate subjugation. Also another reason why I believe this is because it doesnt matter how rich a black person is in this country go to a certain neighborhood as a black person (doesnt matter if its white, latino, asian etc) you WILL be followed around and treated like a criminal. Double if you dare to wear a god forsaken hoodie if it rains. It is also recorded fact that immigrants get precedence over black americans for bank loans. Again the reason why so many for example korean immigrants were able to make it in this country is because when the civil rights act passed it allowed for koreans to open businesses especially during the reagan era. But because white people didnt want them in their neighborhoods they would give them the loans for buildings in black neighborhoods. Black people literally welcomed them with open arms at first and thought we had allies but it quickly discovered they too treat us like criminals in our own neighborhood. Beauty supplies are a staple in black communitiesm for example yet and only 10% are owned by black people even though we drive like 95% of the profit. When black people do try to set up their own they are ran out of business because Koreans have a monopoly on black hair care. I'm not blaming koreans im just using an example. Literally every race when the going has gotten tough and it was time to stand in solidarity chose by and large to join in on the further subjugation of black people no matter the class! The poorest white person would not switch places with the equally poor black person. And you can insert any race into that and the outcome would largely be the same. Why? because everyone knows that black americans are at the bottom of the racial hierarchy in this country. and RACE TRUMPS CLASS EVERY TIME!

No. 1537186

once everyone unpacks their internalized antiblackness then we can discuss the real issue that is the class war in this country. But if everyone is too triggered to call a racist country founded on racist ideals racist we will never make progress or come together! Everyone has a lot of anti blackness to unpack EVEN BLACK PEOPLE. but no one wants to call it out everyone wants to label everything "woke" (wrong might i add) call black people perpetual victims without LISTENING and then be shocked when history repeats itself for the 50th time in this country

Multiculturalism is not the issue- classism absolutely is, and racism is used to further divide within classes for the benefit of the top of the chain, and widen the gap. We are all fighting for scraps of reliable housing, healthcare, employment, or proper wages on top of being fed literal plastic by design. Look at what we’re doing now- mincing words over who is getting shafted worse and why instead of who is shafting us all. We’re not prepared for balkanization because we literally can’t afford to be, not to mention what it would do to women and children, especially minority women and children.

The Roman Empire was actually more mono-cultural but multi-ethnic, one of their goals after expanding and taking new territories was "civilizing" the areas and people there by making them more Roman.
And even then, whenever the Romans left an area the people there would revolt pretty quickly to try and become independent.

No. 1537363

Nta but I disagree. I’m sorry for the experiences you must have to hold that opinion and I wish you to come to some sort of peace with your race. But tbh the concept of people “unpacking their anti blackness” is neverending because statements like that are being used to assert intellectual/moral superiority over others without any real solutions of how to help black Americans. Even the liberal whites who pretend to “do better” and try to police others on social media for woke points from other whites are insidiously racist behind closed doors. The loud collective disavowing of “anti blackness” is never going to happen the same way that there will never come a day where men decide to relinquish their power and women are freed from being seen as sexualized objects and household slaves. At most you’ll get some pandering from democrats who save face for like five seconds but then continue to fuck over the black community with their laws to let violent criminals back on the streets to hurt black girls and black women.

i hate to agree with you, but its so hard to see an end to any of this shit. it makes me want to disappear into the countryside and never interact with society again. it seems like everyone is insane, one the one hand you have uber christian repubtards who hate women and black people, and on the other side theres just platitudes and the rare occasions people do come together to try make a positive change or even just have our voices heard we're punished and undermined. the mass protests of police brutality where the cities would just randomly leave totally inconspicuous piles of bricks in the path of the protest come to mind , i also strongly believe there were undercovers at many of the protests trying to incite rioting. obviously some people used it as an excuse to just steal, but theres no way the government wouldnt stick their fingers into something as big as that. definitely trying to discredit the movement because it scared them and their pedophile wife beating friends.
got off track a little bit, but i just wanted to say the way the internet feels lately feels way worse to me than the alt right pipeline in the 2010s. maybe thats just because im actually an adult now, but id love to hear opinions anyone who was older than me during that. it felt like we were making progress for a while though.

Unlike Trump, DeSantis is actually good at making shit happen in his favor and not accident. That 20pt victory he had in the recent election wasn't all just luck. He's highly educated, decisive, and successfully redistricted areas of Florida that are inhabited by people who would never vote for him with no scandal at all. Other republicans have been dragged on the media for much less. Conservative media already praises him as a genius.

There was no way Crist was ever going to win, especially given people soured on him after the gay rumors came out. Plus the Florida Democratic party is run so terribly, it's not even funny.

It's enough to make you become vegetarian until you go see how vegetable farming is done, ie, until you see how all the migrant farm laborers have to shit in the fields where they work to avoid wasting time and get enough produce picked to feed their family for the day. Not to mention how every week one of them drops dead from heat stroke or exhaustion and the body just lies there and rots, fluids running out and running by your lettuce or strawberries or whatever.

It can be done until you get your own ebt.

I have an easier time avoiding this kind of topic now because I'm not surrounded by ameriboos anymore at my current job and I avoid social media way more than before. It's just one example out of many topics, like how whatching American sitcoms is peak normie over here and you're supposed to already know about American culture to get all the jokes and references, but god forbid you want to play a Japanese video game or watch a Korean drama or German TV show that's not on Arte, you'll be treated like a total weirdo or a huge nerd.

While that is true, it is also true that non-Americans have a tendency to speak about life here, our culture(s), or the average American like they know personally and they end up just being wrong and looking ignorant to us.

I'm definitely correct when it comes to American politics because she mentioned it and that's one of the many things shoved down everyone's throat. I'm not going to argue against her regarding how Americans in their daily lives are obviously. And some of the people shit talking you are sometimes even ameriboos kek. But let's be real, people shit talking countries and their populations as if they knew from first hand experience how they're like isn't an American exclusive thing. It's just that it happens more often to Americans, especially online. I often see people (including Americans but not only) doing the exact same thing with the people in my country after all and getting things factually wrong unless they've lived here for a long time.

Not even a hyperbole but if I were American my mother and I would have died long ago because of how healthcare works.

My country is far from perfect but it's still objectively better than the US.

No. 1539494

Yeah for real there’s no shame in going to one if you need more food. They are there to redistribute excess food to those who will eat it. I worked at a nonprofit briefly that served a hot meal once a week and the place they “shopped” for food was an enormous warehouse where all the nonprofits went to collect bulk cases of excess food (free of charge) donated by large corporations that had to offload unsold merchandise. Food waste is built into the system, there’s a reason it’s there for free. I saw everything from “gourmet” local mustard to boxes of frozen mcribs. If someone doesn’t eat it it goes in the trash. Of course some local food pantries are full of local residents’ donations from small scale food drives but nonny said she lives in a major city so it’s more likely to be a big warehouse situation or at least a big grocer offloading their weekly “freeze-by” deadline foods.

samefag: I keep thinking about this and how I said there's no shame. Maybe that's just me. There definitely is a social stigma. There shouldn't be but there is in the US. And also as much as I don't mind eating old food it truly isn't as good as fresh food. The nutritional value is still there, and the calories, but flavor suffers a lot from old food and canned food and frozen food. Tastes like shit honestly. So it's completely understandable that people don't want it or feel some type of way about eating it to survive. Personally I'm a weirdo about food waste. but I haven't had to survive off food-pantry food since I was a kid and as I recall it sucked ass. My older siblings say I didn't even see the worst of it since my parents got into a better situation when I was in the single digit age-range. It's not really desirable but it's there and it's awfully useful when you need it. As I said it's being throw away and if someone wants it they should have it. Nothing enrages me like grocery stores that throw bleach on their old bread so no one dumpster dives it etc.
probably the fact that this has even come up in the lolcow-americans thread is a bad sign. hope we can look out for eachother when The Great Depression 2.0 happens and hoovervilles and hobocodes come back.

Easter is a very fun holiday when you are a kid. My only complaint is that I grew up in Vermont and it was always cold on Easter because spring basically doesn’t exist there it’s just more winter but wetter, so I’d be out hunting for eggs in the muddy snow and my little fingers would get too cold to open the dang plastic eggs. But it was a lot of fun and I loved using the shitty little dip n dye egg kits. the wire was so hard to use, I think it developed my balance & hand/eye coordination.

Call me crazy but I think one policy aside from banning dumb recreational rifles like the AR-15 that should be implemented is to reduce news coverage of shootings, putting a cap on the percentage of news that can be dedicated to shooters and criminals. Then I think the shooters should have as little known about them as possible (like some other countries do with blurring the faces and hiding names). When they kill themselves their bodies should be incinerated and the ashes should be dumped in a waste of shit where nobody can find them kek. Most of these people want to be notorious or have fame, their manifestos should all be burned and their “legacy” should be absolutely nothing. Let them be forgotten and wiped off of this earth like the turds that they are. Literally dump their ashes into shit and burn all traces of them so no one remembers that they existed. It’s not like these crimes are uncommon anyways, I don’t even know the name of any shooters. Idk why they always wanna hurt innocents when they’d arguably be more notable going after a politician instead. So fucking tired of this.

The government should also come to the conclusion that most men are a social welfare liability, cannot be trusted, and that we need a mass culling of the men who will chimp out and commit crimes. The US government used to recruit sociopaths to war but those moid sociopaths are now anti-government thanks to the media and thus JROTC/ROTC relies on recruiting poor non-white kids. If not for war overseas then their sociopathy is taken out on domestic soil. I’d wager that only 20% of men should exist at maximum for the greatest societal utility. If we consider sexual harassment and assault (including coercion) then it’s less than 10%. I don’t even care about never being married or partnered if there’s not enough men left, being safe takes preference. Unfortunately my culling idea would also indefinitely wipe out the scrote elites and politicians so it will never come to fruition. Sad.

No, this isn’t why. America doesn’t have as much of a tea culture as Britain does because, you know, the whole rebel colony thing. America got their tea from British trade routes, but the British don’t really do trade with hostile forces, so the supply dwindled. America switched over to coffee from South America because they weren’t at war with South American countries and coffee was quickly becoming the new trendy drink. A trend Britain clearly didn’t pick up on.
Americans drank tea, they still drink tea, some people have kettles in their homes and some don’t. Now answer us- why do the Brits suck at making coffee?

So having a coffee machine is better than having a pour over or a French press, because we don't also need the kettle for tea.

Krispy Kreme throws out their unsold donuts every day and if you go to their dumpster you can take a huge garbage bag full of just donuts and be an absolutely hedonistic freegan for a couple days or until you get sick of eating them and have to throw them away again.

in my freshman year of college (university for the Europeans itt) I used an electric kettle in my dorm room because it was allowed (open heating apparatuses like a hotplate weren't allowed and freshman dorms didn't have kitchens). in my experience using the kettle to heat the water for my instant noodles felt less efficient in time than just putting them in the microwave. can't knock the kettle though, still got it all these years later. it's convenient for things like tea, French pressed coffee and pour overs. but that's for nice coffees and fancy teas, which are more of a treat since they're expensive. it feels dumb to do a pour over with Maxwell House.

All the fast food chicken chains in America (besides chic fil a) are terrible. Everything they serve is terrible. Also they pay absolute garbage and the managers never give a single shit, I’ve had friends who worked at the chains and they’ve all said shit will get dropped on the floor and then served to customers. My fat parents were wondering why they kept having stomach flu and persistent diarrhea come to find out they’d been frequenting Popeyes and KFC, I told them to knock that shit out and buy some grocery store fried chicken next time they had a craving. They were all ohhhh were just too old to eat fried food and I was like well you should probably stop eating it SO MUCH but y’all are getting the shits from bits of fecal matter in your dirty fast food - I know you don’t get the runs from chic fil a. So they stopped going to Popeyes and KFC and have been fine since kek.

Chic fil a is wayyy overhyped but it’s alright. Their breakfast menu is superior to their lunch/dinner menu imo. I’ve never gotten sick from eating there.

Krispy Kreme is nasty diabetes inducing bullshit, find a locally owned donut shop wherever you go and I can almost guarantee it’ll knock chain donut places off the chart. Little local donut places never stopped surprising me as to how damn good their donuts were. However you usually have to hit up the local donut spots early early early cause they typically close in the early afternoon (or even earlier if they sell out for the day, on the rare occasion they don’t they seem to usually give the extras to homeless). Also local donut places in certain areas of the country are WAY cheaper than the Krispy Kreme and Dunkin chains in the same locale, that’s how it is where I am anyway. I truly don’t understand how the Dunkin in my town even sells any donuts when they cost 3x more than the local shop and the local place has fucking cartoon looking perfect fucking donuts that are literally the best donuts I’ve ever had in my life.

>find a locally owned donut shop wherever you go

lol if only. There's almost none of that shit here unless I take the train to Paris. And most of the time they're made by small businesses that are almost always closed down and that are only open when I'm working, or they're the previously frozen donuts from Starbucks that you pick when you're really desperate. I remember going to a Dunkin Donuts every morning for breakfast during a school trip in Berlin and loved it. I was also obsessed with Mister Donuts when living in Tokyo. I miss it so much but I guess it's not part of our culture and we already have a bunch of equivalent food here so that would mean more competition against donuts stores.

The land is beautiful and the puget sound is nice as hell, plus you have snow capped mountains to the east.

Get a portable AC unit if your place doesn’t have one and take a lot of camping trips to the forests and coasts and you’ll have fun. Nothing else is that different except there’s less sense of widespread community — you have to find your specific people group if you’re young, only old people are friendly — there’s a crazy homeless crisis, you really need to lock your car doors, and people do actually do land acknowledgements and pronoun etiquette (but if you don’t get the pronouns right nothing happens except someone making a slightly pinched facial expression; I dunno how social you are or what your job is but I was way too homeschooled to follow that shit so I got it wrong constantly and it was fine)

100% agree, it’s a big country. Not as much of a culture shock as moving continent-to-continent or something and at least the same laws apply but there are differences in regions.

Pacific Northwest is kinda weird because it’s kind of rural even in the cities…there are a lot of temporary and/or new residents but it’s so expensive to live in the cities (which only happened in the last 25 years) that you find a lot of rural Oregon and Washington residents driving in to the cities to work, and you run into people who have been there since the 90s who are, like, normal weirdos.

Unless you can afford to live in the mountains you're driving a solid 50 minutes to get to anything worthwhile as far as nature/snow sports. Oh and once you get to said nature or skiing its insanely crowded or pricey. Denver is the most bland major city I've ever experienced. The restaurant scene is super lacking, even in places you'd expect better options/quality like Denver and Boulder. The weather is also god awful; it's 90-100 all summer, there is little to no spring or fall, and extreme temperature fluctuation between day and night. Living at altitude was kind of annoying for cooking.

Yes, I’ve heard of the cheese. “Government cheese” was/is slang for welfare because for a while they literally sent it out to people as part of a food assistance program. I think that was a publicity thing after Reagan cut food stamps? But I just skimmed the wiki to refresh my memory https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government_cheese
It’s there because dairy is subsidized isn’t it? And now the government has this enormous processed cheese stockpile at all times that they can barely get rid of; they scheme with fast food chains to create more menu items that are heavy on cheese (think stuffed crusts and anything with cheese between layers lol) so they can offload it. I wonder if the fast food chains get it for free…don’t know all the details but there are articles about it

Tangential. They've been happening all over the US apparently but there's a service that any old joe can pay for that offers to swat locations with AI technology in exchange for Bitcoin


>synthesized call and another against Hempstead High School were just one small part of a months-long, nationwide campaign of dozens, and potentially hundreds, of threats made by one swatter in particular who has weaponized computer generated voices. Known as “Torswats” on the messaging app Telegram, the swatter has been calling in bomb and mass shooting threats against highschools and other locations across the country.

>Torswat’s connection to these wide ranging swatting incidents has not been previously reported. The further automation of swatting techniques threatens to make an already dangerous harassment technique more prevalent.

>Torswats carries out these threatening calls as part of a paid service they offer. For $75, Torswats says they will close down a school. For $50, Torswats says customers can buy “extreme swattings,” in which authorities will handcuff the victim and search the house. Torswats says they offer discounts to returning customers, and can negotiate prices for “famous people and targets such as Twitch streamers.”

In the US? Pretty much any city would be okay. My measure for that is that I see women walking alone to work or school or whatever in every US city. But a lot of cities have an area with a bad reputation, like no one would be surprised if you got jumped on [xyz] street in [abc] city, so you’d be better off picking a city and then asking here if there’s any red flag areas even just at night.
Like for instance Pittsburgh: can walk pretty much anywhere day or night alone as a woman in my experience, but I personally avoided the Northside because catcalling was out of control on the main business streets (the little historic residential streets were fine) and if you go to the southside at night watch your back because a drunk driver will try to run you over no matter how much you’re on the sidewalk, especially on the weekends.
Anyway I recommend San Diego because it’s nice as hell. I’ve only been there once myself so I don’t know the red zones, I just went downtown and to the beach and it relaxed my whole body in a weekend. It’s just nice there.

Portland’s not terribly unsafe but there are a lot of mentally unwell homeless people everywhere you go and that’s just a fact. Also car window smash and grabs aren’t uncommon (never happened to me but I saw it happen to others). Crimes of opportunity are the most popular so general common sense will protect you just fine. When I lived there I went on runs and walks every day alone, usually in the daytime but also at night in areas I knew, and I never felt in danger only crossed the street a couple times if I got a bad vibe from someone who looked on edge.

Addendum to the Pittsburgh thing:
There are streets in PGH where the pizza delivery guys will not go to because they got held up at gunpoint more than once, but you would never go there as a visitor because they’re so out of the way so it’s not worth listing. Every city has neighborhoods where people live but a stranger shouldn’t stroll in for fun and it’s pretty self evident where those are if you’ve lived in a city. I only mentioned northside issue I had and southside dangers because those are places a visitor might actually go.

Just to answer your question, Trader Joe’s is not expensive like Whole Foods. It’s actually pretty decent. There are a lot of gimmicky foods all over the store to catch your eye that will jack up your bill like crazy if you fall for them. The staples they carry are as cheap or cheaper than comparable items at other stores and the quality is better.

No. 1553164

Trader Joe’s is def a hipster store and a store for people who can’t cook and want to buy frozen rice or whatever. Also their workplace culture is a little weird and intense but last I checked they paid a higher starting wage than any other grocery stores so maybe that makes up for it, dunno. When I looked into working there in 2015 their own description of the career track there creeped me out. It was like “are you the kind of person who naturally works 70 hours a week and could be on call 24/7? Then you might be perfect for store manager! Come prove your dedication to Trader Joe for a chance at a small promotion.” Paraphrasing and it was full of corporate lingo and made up job titles that made it weirder but you get the idea

I’m sick and tired of these activists who usually don’t live near these camps go on and on about how upset they are that people hate having mentally ill druggies in their backyard. I’m sorry but having to walk outside and avoid needles and fucking crackheads looking for a fight, trying to fuck with anyone who walks by isn’t normal and shouldn’t be accepted. My heart goes out to the people who are genuinely trying to get better but so many of the ones I’ve encountered are too far gone and don’t even want to get better.
