My typical pre drive snack
  • lol I’m slowly trying to find my limit now that they’re legal here. Up to a 50mg dose and still don’t get any effects. Going for 75mg this weekend. I’m curious what level I need to get to for them to kick in.

  • But they believe it, man! Why won’t you respect their beliefs? You need evidence, you godless heathen? Can’t you just have faith that the ones with the money and power are genuinely looking out for their constituents with no conflicts of interest whatsoever?

    /s to the extreme

  • McDonald’s customers may soon have to pay for drink refills
  • You’re welcome! You’re right that the little differences that separate our similar societies are fascinating to experience firsthand. I hope you get the opportunity to enjoy the same; it’s amazing to see what the world is like through other cultures.

  • McDonald’s customers may soon have to pay for drink refills
  • In the US virtually every drink has ice in it, unless it’s beer, liquor, wine, juice, or milk. Every soda, mixed drink, or water you get, the cup will be filled to the brim with ice. When the waiter refills your water, the pitcher will have ice so more falls into your glass. It’s just common and ubiquitous here for drink service.

    The tip for our first travel was that in other countries, this wasn’t commonplace. In France, for example, ice didn’t come with your drink unless you specifically request it (at least the last time I went that was my experience) and even then it was a cube or two like they were rationing it. Now that I’m used to it, it is fine, I can go without ice, but I’m glad I knew before that first trip so it saved some awkward “typical ignorant American traveler” conversations.

  • McDonald’s customers may soon have to pay for drink refills
  • It’s nice, but it mostly just has to do with how cheap soda is here, which another poster here called out. The plastic cups at fast food restaurants cost the restaurant more than the soda inside them.

    In fact, when we first traveled to Europe, the refill thing (along with not expecting ice) was one of the items the travel company called out to prepare us for the trip! Don’t know if they still do that as we plan our own travel now.

  • Jesus is their savior, Trump is their candidate. Ex-president's backers say he shares faith, values
  • But if they open that book and actually read and understand it, how will all the churches that warp that message make money and further spread their hatred and discrimination? Won’t someone please think of these super important churches and their totally-not-coincidentally wealthy pastors? (/s in case it wasn’t obvious)

  • Pantera - Dom/Hollow (Live)

    101 Proof is an amazing album!
