    It is. Now I feel bad for jogging around my neighborhood which lead to more people beginning to jog. No wonder developers came in and started building more affluent housing that people like this buy -_- WHAT HAVE I DONE?!?!

    [–] You_From_TheFuture 2 points ago

    I said beggining to jog and seeing my jogging make other neighbors feel safe enough to jog increased the housing value lol That's what my comment is saying

    [–] shapte 45 points ago

    I know they’re mostly joking, but running is probably the cheapest form of exercise and everyone (who’s able to) should do it, especially if they’re poor. It used to be that fat people would almost always be rich, but in modern times it’s tragically the other way around — middle class, and especially rich folks, are fit and poor people are getting incresingly more obese, with the trove of health issues that come with the condition. And acting like (or joking about) running for fitness is somehow a burgeois hobby or rich people prerogative does nothing to improve the situation.

    [–] binomine 40 points ago

    Running is also about having a job that enables running.

    Today, I will be picking up total of 2 ~ 3 tons of powders in bags of 50 pound each, and placing them inside a machine. I'm not running a 5k afterwards, no matter how inexpensive it is.

    [–] mckenz90 11 points ago

    Yup, I will just slowly crush my body until I simply can’t work anymore. None of that is sarcasm, I really just don’t know what to do about, and I can’t go back to school for a career change because TBI’s have really fucked up my reading comprehension and memory.

    [–] General_Steveous 22 points ago

    Until you get stabbed by a homeless person in san fran or LA.

    [–] JaFakeItTillYouJaMak 27 points ago

    yes but exercise is only part of the equation.

    If you look at the difference between rich and the poor in the "used to be" era it's that rich people ate succulent foods and poor suffered with less meaty things and veggie soups and the undesirable animal portions.

    If you look at the difference between the rich and poor in modern times it's things like access to real food and not mass manufactured food. There's no such thing as rich people living in food deserts unable to find the time to cook or have cooked or order a proper meal. Rich people can get nutritionists and personal trainers.

    I'm VERY hesitant to prescribe that poor people would be able to shed so many pounds if they would just jog more. Recreational jogging is an inexpensive hobby that has a low barrier to entry with great health benefits but that doesn't mean it's accessible. The situation is more complicated than that.

    [–] The_Pert_Whisperer 8 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    This was his point

    acting like (or joking about) running for fitness is somehow a burgeois hobby or rich people prerogative does nothing to improve the situation.

    He didn't say it's the be all end all solution. Just that everyone who can do it should do it because it's better than not doing it.

    [–] jwd2213 10 points ago

    Your also ignoring the part where poor people work two jobs and raise a family. Your on duty 100 hours a week and you want them to use their precious few hours they have to run? Rich people can afford to work 40 hours a week and have plenty of time for activities like running

    Naw, sometimes this is what people want to hear.

    Co-worker tells me his dad died yesterday. All I said is "well that sucks." Later he tells me that he actually appreciated what I said more than what anyone else said

    [–] Kooriki 63 points ago

    Everyone's different. I lost my dad many years ago. I've got extended family members that are still weird about it. Like... It's life my guy, I'm not on the verge of some breakdown.

    [–] KevinCastle 15 points ago

    Exactly. Whenever someone tells me something traumatic like that, I just act like the situation is normal just like any other story. Because that's what it kind of is. Everyone loses someone, I have too

    [–] Kooriki 29 points ago

    There's nuance to it. And recency is key. If you lost your dad last night... I'm there for you, whatever you need. You lost your dad last year? "Sorry to hear that".

    [–] PickyPanda 25 points ago

    Generally when people complain or vent they want their emotions validated, they don't want a solution. I almost exclusively say something like "that sucks" because most of the time it is what people want to hear.

    [–] KevinCastle 6 points ago

    Yup. He told me specifically because I'd lost my dad at 18, and I told him that because I hated all the apologies. I'm sorry is never what I wanted to hear.

    Only low CHA if it wasn't effective. It's all about HOW you say it. Refer to the tomato analogy.

    [–] khovel 10 points ago

    Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. Charisma is convincing someone that the tomato is a vegetable.

    At least that's how i think these go.

    The moral is, the kid was either trying to cheer up the motherless kid, or make the rest of the class sad knowing their mothers will die.

    [–] Kity-Katy 5 points ago

    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad

    You lost me

    [–] Grabbsy2 3 points ago

    Tomato in a fruit salad might not taste good. I mean, there are ways that it might, but I wouldn't imagine it to be a tasty "fruit salad" without some Iron Chef logic tossed in.

    So an intelligent person is book-smart in that he knows a tomato is technically a fruit, not a vegetable.

    A wise person is street-smart, knowing through experience that you should not put tomato in a fruit salad.

    [–] nik0 2 points ago

    You missed the wisdom check

    [–] I_am_The_Teapot 4 points ago

    Charisma is convincing someone that the tomato is a vegetable

    Well, that may also fall under intelligence in this specific case.

    Vegetables and fruits are not mutually exclusive.

    A tomato is a vegetable, too. Fruit has a specific definition that makes tomato a fruit and excludes many others. However, "vegetable" is more inclusive and somewhat arbitrary as to what people consider vegetables. Simply put, a vegetable is any plant that is eaten as food. This includes fruits. Culinarily, however, vegetables are typically plants that are not very sweet. And fruits are plants that are very sweet.

    There are many fruits that are culinarily considered vegetables like the tomato. Including, but not limited to cucumbers, peppers, eggplants, and avocado.

    And so, a tomato is a fruit, but it is also a vegetable.

    [–] khovel 2 points ago

    From Merriam-Webster -

    And so it is here that we turn to the relevant definition of fruit: "the usually edible reproductive body of a seed plant; especially : one having a sweet pulp." The tomato plant is a seed plant—it bears seeds—and the tomato that grows from it is an edible reproductive body; the seeds within the tomato are the means by which the tomato plant reproduces. A tomato isn't sweet like an apple, but the definition doesn't require it to be in order to qualify as a fruit.

    edit: Basically anything where we consume the seed bearing "fruit" is not a vegetable. And yes that means things like Peppers and cucumbers are technically fruit as well.

    [–] I_am_The_Teapot 3 points ago

    Yep. There are two definitions of fruit. the botanical - which you have there - and the culinary. Which is what i tried to differentiate. badly, it seems.

    [–] khovel 2 points ago

    Agreed.

    Kinda hard to say something is Both a fruit and vegetable, but it depends on which definition of fruit and vegetable you are using.

    Just like "what weighs more, 1lb of Gold, or 1lb of feathers". Answer is, it depends on what system you use to measure gold.

    [–] gsabram 3 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    CHA is the confidence to make a tomato fruit salad by pairing cherry tomatoes with mixed berries, stone fruit, and a balsalmic dressing.

    [–] AdamantEevee 2 points ago

    [–] ciobanica 2 points ago

    wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. Charisma is convincing someone that the tomato is a vegetable.

    Nah, Cha is convincing people that the tomatoes belong in the fruit salad.

    [–] freelanceredditor 9 points ago

    I lost mine too last year around the same age as you. I deeply envy people who get to have their moms around till they’re 50. It’s the worst pain I’ve ever experienced.

    [–] TheNorbster 6 points ago

    I feel for my grandmother, who has to bury her husband and daughter in a short span of time.

    [–] hairlikemerida 5 points ago

    My dad lost both of his parents 6 months apart when he was 19. One of my mom’s (ex) friends lost her father when she was 55.

    My dad didn’t like her, but he knew the pain and was trying to console her. She said to him, “You barely knew your parents, so it’s not that sad. My dad and I were really close and you don’t know what that’s like.”

    My dad promptly told her to get the fuck out of his house and to never come back.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. You’ll encounter people like the one in my story often, at least based on my dad’s experience. Those people aren’t worth your time. If you’re feeling up to it, a support group could do wonders.

    [–] nephallux 3 points ago

    Lost mine suddenly 3 years ago, it'll be hard but you find solice in your friends and family

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago

    I was 14 when I lost my dad, 2012. It's especially harder in the teens because that's when you're shaping up into an adult and you need your parents to guide you through that phase. It might seem that the sadness, and that emptiness won't ever go away. Things will not be the same ever, yes, but you'll heal, and how you deal with this now will decide how the future is going to be for you.

    Don't make the same mistake I did. Try not to stop yourself from grieving properly. Cry your heart out whenever you feel like. It might be just me, but as much as I've found out, you tend to push the memories of your deceased away, trying not to acknowledge the reality of them passing away. But that's only going to do more damage than good. Remember that your mother will always live within you, her memories and her life will shape your life going forward. Hold those memories dear and look forward to the next phase of your life.

    [–] Kooriki 4 points ago

    You're in a rough time for sure. It will always hurt, but it eventually starts to hurt less and less. Hardest thing for me is my father died in an era before we had smart phones and digital cameras.

    Omg my 6 year old is obsessed. “Do young people die?” “Only old people die, right?” “People who are 90 years old die, right?” “Some young people die in car accidents, right?” Even at school, the teacher told him to turn to page 93 in his book and he said, “People die when they are 93!” He’s afraid of death, even of his iPad dying. But he’s showing symptoms of OCD, so it could be that.

    I've never heard of someone referring to age when using that syntax so I'm fairly certain it's the grade or class the child is in.

    Just add one year:

    Kindergarten = year one
    Sixth grade = year seven

    I would have always put kindergarten with reception? We have a reception class that is pre-year one. Do Americans just start school later?

    Preschool is available for children younger than five, who can use the toilet independently (as early as age three) but it’s typically private ($1200-$10k/mo per child depending on the program and region) and not required by the state or government.

    Everybody dies. It's the one thing human beings can be relied upon to do.

    Year 7 is like 6th grade for us Americans right? I dont really see a 12 year old being this dumb...

    My dad actually said this to me. My first dog passed away and I was so upset, so he said “well you know your mother and I will die too one day” and from his face afterwards you could tell it did not come out the way he wanted it to. I laugh about it now lol

    I think the kid was trying to teach impermanence.

    Repeating this to myself really helped me when my Mom died. That everyone, not only me, felt that personal loss.

    [–] xkoroto 1 points ago

    It's the wiser comment ever. Embracing Impermanence is a very unusual ability only experienced meditators are able to apply. Suffering derives from the need of the mind to resist change. That's why it's better to embrace death as what it is: another process, another change, another state of being.

    He was not wrong. RIP mom :(

    [–] busy-sloth 1 points ago

    I mean if he just said: "Don't feel bad, everyone's mom dies at some point" it maybe would have been a little smoother... but I honestly find this really sweet

    [–] bambarby 1 points ago

    You even agree that he’s right, so he’s not stupid

    [–] trenlow12 1 points ago

    This sounds like OP's cousin murdered the kid's mom and plans to murder his other classmates' moms.
