This guy saying kids don’t play outside obviously hasn’t seen the park down the street from my house for the last month. There are people fucking swarming the place every day.
Also, I resent the idea that connections made online aren’t real connections. You get out what you put in, just like in real life. Do you have long thoughtful conversations with your online friends about something you enjoy or do you just leave a like and move on?
Ok, so there’s no point in the post where the person says “all people” so you take it as OP not accusing all people of having this mindset, but there was no point in my post where I said “all people” (in fact, I state in my post that this is the opinion of one person I know) but you are assuming I’m talking about all people. Hypocrisy much? I also never said nobody ever thinks poor people are poor because they’re lazy, I just said it’s foolish to think everyone holding the opinion that welfare is bad also says poor people are lazy. Please read posts more carefully and don’t put words in my mouth.
As someone who knows someone against welfare (I personally am neutral) this is a pretty unfair assessment of the anti-welfare mindset.
My anti-welfare friend is himself a lower middle class man who has his own struggles with jobs and bills, but does not like that welfare keeps one dependent on the government, thus giving the government more control over their lives. Welfare also does not do all that much to push people out of poverty, so those on welfare are likely to stay on welfare. My friend believes welfare should only be given for a limited amount of time, and the government offering the welfare should do more to prepare people for being able to support themselves
So, no, people that are anti-welfare do not just oppose it because they believe poverty is a self inflicted easy fix. Try to have a little more perspective on these issues. Nothing is black and white.
Yeah… Being a piece of shit to someone with an alternate sexual identity when they didn’t attack anyone is not cool
Just tell her there is no scientific proof to support that claim.
Alternatively, you could tell her it was a fair trade if it meant protecting you from dying of disease
Well first it’s not ranch…
The “Vaccines wear off” argument is a new one, haven’t heard that one before. But if vaccines did wear off, wouldn’t that mean the government could mandate we get the same shots over and over again every 5-6 years and make more money off of it?
As if publishers would ever accept anything too different or creative.
I seriously think this is less of a problem of writers not wanting to do it and more a problem of publishers and editors not allowing it. Also, would you mind cooling down on the caps lock? You’re hurting everyone’s eyes.
It’s true that the Harry Potter movies got longer as time went along, but in general movies have always been about the same length. Adult movies are pretty often over the standard 90 minutes while children’s movies rarely if ever go over that limit, so our perception is that movies in general are getting longer as we get older but in reality it’s just the length changes with the demographic. I mean, Pulp Fiction, one of the most popular and influential movies of its time, was two and a half hours long and came out in 1994 (i.e. the year I was born). That’s just the way I see it anyway.
He’s just not that into you
I am 110% ok with this
What’s that? A game franchise that was made to be easy to beat just released another game that was easy to beat? Outrageous! 0/10 would not play
>getting butthurt because smogon doesn’t allow asshole 1HKO moves
And smogon doesn’t restrict one battle strat per pokemon. In fact, most Pokemon have several popular strats to choose from and the people telling you you use the wrong strats are elitist assholes that nobody likes anyway and are a part of basically every online multiplayer community.
I actually learned the reasoning behind it recently but forgot it >.> So I guess that makes my comment useless
Isn’t Steven Universe kinda action-y?
I actually don’t know, I haven’t watched it yet
Ha, Game Grumps is in the related searches

Mmm, that was a good video…
I’m a little lost on the pedophilia incident, this is actually my first time hearing about it.
Doesn’t that happen to all rotting fruit?
He had a problem with his girlfriend making any public relations with black people, because he was afraid of what people would think or something like that
Also, don’t be an asshole
Why does Joltik have to be the most adorable pokemon ever?
I don’t know who the fuck thumbed this down but I live in New England too and everyone I know says “soda”. And I’ve lived in multiple parts of New England, so don’t give me some shit like only the people in my city say soda
