Basic instincts
  • Nah this is completely wrong, move your body to somewhere else where there are different people. Interact with them. That's it, you have a different social circle now. Find a new hobby or pick up an old one in a different place, decline to hang out with people who ridicule you and invite people who do not.

  • Nato summit: Ukraine on 'irreversible path' to membership
  • Yeah if the US had invaded Mexico maybe it would be understandable if they sought Russian help. Your whole comment ignores the fact that Russia invaded a sovereign country in 2014 and continues to kill people every day there trying to take it over. There's no arguing with bullies like Putin, we learned this lesson with Hitler. Burying them in the ground is better than appeasing them.

  • I was faster than an ambulance as I could take her to a closer hospital than the one they'd be coming from and I could leave immediately, no need for a phone conversation first. Sometimes ambulances are quicker but in some cases like mine, they wouldn't be.

  • Fair enough, fortunately upvotes don't pay my rent or I'd have to find a bridge to live under. It's just frustrating to do deal with people who can't imagine that others might have different needs than their own and insist everyone fits into their quick and easily defined box.

  • In my case the hospital on the local military base (which I have access to) was likely to be faster to access than the paramedics, it was one of those cases like you mentioned where sometimes we can be faster than an ambulance. I did not have traffic to contend with due to the time of day there were only a handful of other people on the roads. Glad you were able to help your spouse too, they're lucky to have you!

  • Good for you that you've never had an emergency in your life, be grateful for your privileged existence. I drove 100mph to get my wife to the hospital when she went into anaphylaxis. She could be dead if my car was limited to 55mph. Take your one size fits all approach and shove it up your privileged ass.

  • I genuinely feel like I wouldn't live that differently even if I suddenly became ultra-wealthy. Am I kidding myself?
  • Good on you for being receptive to their conversation and actually making improvements and changes. Not everyone behaves that way, some people like my friend just become dependent on the help instead. It's important to recognize that external help isn't always the solution; that shouldn't stop us from trying to help initially but it's important to withdraw it if it's causing dependency.

  • The "why not" is that some people actually are harmed not helped by being handed stuff. I tried to help one of my friends who lived with me rent free for a year and by the end he was completely unmotivated to actually get or keep a job, contribute around the house, or even behave pleasantly towards anyone in the house. It happened gradually over time til living with him became intolerable.

  • Florida prosecutors knew Epstein raped teenage girls 2 years before cutting deal, transcript shows
  • If you hang out at a bar with Nazis in it, it's a Nazi bar and you're a Nazi too. Same with pedophile island. Some things are so evil if you know about it and do nothing you are just as complicit as the people directly doing it.

  • Casual reminder
  • That would be good, private colleges could still exist but they'd have to compete with free college so the prices would have to come down and the value come up, a win for the consumer either way. It would be expensive but an important investment in our future.

  • Supreme Court Justice warns Americans: "The president is now a king".
  • One could at least argue that the Iraq invasion was within what was generally understood to be the role of the president at the time, specifically leading the military as its commander in chief. No one expected throwing a coup to be within the normal role of the president, but apparently that's also covered according to this decision.
