Also obviously this is putting too much thought into it, but why are the ice walls all varied coastline on the inner side and completely flat on the outside?

The rotation of each section is reversed, so the ice walls must be the circumferences of a set of concentric cylinders.

The worst is that math post with symbols representing numbers and equations where the last one has order of operations issues. It must be specifically designed to get people to argue and it just keeps popping up with different symbols.

My mother posted one yesterday where the symbols in the final row was slightly changed to incorporate the others (the default symbols were a guy and a pair of shoes, the final row had a guy wearing tiny shoes) which I thought was a nice twist on top of the order of operations schtick.

But yeah those are 100% designed to drive engagement with people smugly commenting with their own answers and corrections so that the page owner builds up a nice list of accounts to sell.

That, or just this:

I find that story hilarious and the interview clip is great, but for some reason the sky guy presenting the story infuriates me and I don't know why.

It's me, I'm the idiot on social media

Why can't they give me like a slider so that I can change my tax money going from the military to things that I support like libraries and schools?

It's because all the tax money will go to bombs isn't it?

At that point you should just cut out the middleman, drop all taxes, and give your dollars to the megacorp or charitable trust who promises to trickle it down to your preferred interests.

'You miss 100% of the shots you don't take' is a guide to sexual interaction. There's always a change she'll be in the mood, and when you think about it a simple 'no, thanks' on her part is such a small thing compared to you missing out on the chance to get your dick wet.

Also that crack about "oh no, not my firstborn puppy" most children have either millenial or younger parents. They know there are still small children out there right, how old do they think the parents of those children are?

Not to mention it's pretty heartless either way? "Millennials are sensitive about the weirdest things! They're so soft that they can't go camping without perfect weather, and they'll wail if you slaughter their pets before their eyes! Haha, cry into your avocado toast!"

Maybe it's just me, but every time some lingual expert describes the mouth and tongue shape required to make a certain word, my own reaction is just a whole lot of question marks. Is that what I'm doing?? Is that what everyone is doing??? But no one ever teaches you how to hold your mouth to make a certain sound, you have to figure it out on your own???? What even is human language???????

It's just as easy as breathing or beating your heart.

If someone wants to show me the clues that it's all a fake, my sense of the world as a logical place would appreciate it.

It's very real and it's been operating that way for years. Can't find it right now but I remember an interview with the person who runs it; the thinking is basically "no one is going to read boring poo poo about smoke alarm expiration dates; we can't change the content but we can change the boring".

Tag yourself, I'm in line at the 'free weed' booth.

Edit: I love how this just absolutely typical university antics, they're even having a keg party out front, they're just not doing it in the exact way the artist approves of.

The keg party is besieged by a torch-wielding mob. They're the lone heroes in this tableau. Note how they're all white guys plus one person with a darker skin tone to prove they're not racist.

My personal favorite is the woman dropping a bottle into a recycling bin as if it's a crime against humanity, because it's reminiscent of the right-wing radio host in my hometown who preached that Green Nazi environmentalists were going to launch the Fourth Reich starting with blue bins in schools.

They're exploiting protections they don't even agree with. I guarantee these are the same people who would throw a fuss about disability exemptions in any other setting (one where they don't personally benefit), and think being able to keep the nature of your disability private is wrong. Can't count how many times I've seen fucks like this demand to know why someone driving with a disability placard "deserves it" when they "look fine to me".

That's a feature, not a bug for them. Because in their minds the only way to argue against them is to tear down the useless laws that coddle all the snowflakes with so-called disabilities. CHECKMATE, LIBS!

Its pure invention and imagination in the same vein of you ever notice how in lesbian/gay relationships, one person always acts like a woman and one acts like a man? They have no experience so they make up something that sounds consistent with their existing bigotry.

Why would you even need urinals? Literally everyone can pee sitting down.

You can more efficiently pack people in if they're standing next to each other rather than sitting. And people are generally more okay lining up at a shared trough to pee than at adjacent, unseparated seats.

The real question is why people bother standing up to pee at toilets designed for sitting.

There was actually a transman she was speaking to who passed so she thought he was cis. So she was completely floored when he was like "Actually I would find that to be quite useful for my periods, so yeah, that would be great!" It seemed he was intentionally waiting for the funniest time to clue her in too, he was having fun with her.

And we only know about this because she released the footage, right? Its not like there was a separate camera crew recording her getting completely dunked on. She opted to include that material in the final cut because she thought it made her look good.
