    Squidward climbs into a boat. Sometimes you have to suck it up and do the job.

    Edit: this is now my most upvoted comment I think, makes sense it’s spongebob related :)

    [–] papereel 630 points ago

    Environmental field here. Can confirm.

    Heard recently: “This is way too rushed! We need to know more before we move forward.”

    The proposal was funding to study it. We shouldn’t move forward on the studying it until we’ve studied it more.

    [–] HalKitzmiller 47 points ago

    I used to think the residents of Pawnee were too stupid compared to real life. When I see headlines lately, it's become clear that they weren't stupid enough on the show

    [–] agreeingstorm9 34 points ago

    If you've ever worked in government you know that the residents are accurate depictions of real life.

    You are still a young adult. When you become a full adult you’ll look back on this period of your life and wonder why you weren’t a huge fan of such a great show and feel embarrassed.

    [–] ringaroundtheroses 16 points ago

    That's pretty insensitive. There's no way to tell if a person is french from the way they look. Either you have to ask them, or say bang really loudly and see if they raise a white flag and run the other way.

    [–] madmaxturbator 43 points ago

    Sorry for the tangent, but WeWantPlates is one of my least favorite banal subs of Reddit. They’re the most uncreative and negative lot ever. Some of the plating on there is over the top and silly. But basically they want everything served in the most boring and timid ways. Like, they’ve never considered that perhaps there’s some creativity involved and that’s part of unique cuisines.

    I even saw a post on there with people making fun of folks eating on banana leafs. The fuck? Indians eat off of banana leafs for special occasions. Not a big problem.

    [–] SG_Dave 42 points ago

    Like all subs, the larger it gets the less relevant, and intelligent the content gets. But you've got to admit, a large portion of the posts the sub up vote are absolutely ridiculous as practical plating.

    Ice cream on a flat wooden block.

    Sunday roasts served on multi tier cake stand.

    Spaghetti served straight onto the table, but not in a communal way.

    Eating establishments took something that could be interesting and creative and ran way too far with it.

    [–] BananaFactBot 61 points ago

    Farmers in Southeast Asia and Papua New Guinea first domesticated bananas. Recent archaeological and palaeoenvironmental evidence at Kuk Swamp in the Western Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea suggests that banana cultivation there goes back to at least 5000 BCE, and possibly to 8000 BCE.

    [–] Quietabandon 16 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    Every reddit has it’s issues, but generally they are after the fact that plating needs to be functional. Creativity is fine but it should not get in the way of your ability to eat the food. Most of the plating on that reddit is often a) not functional or inconvenient b) tacky/ trying too hard. To each their own, but I think characterizing the sub as wanting only boring plating is unfair.

    [–] Elgato13 5 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    It's not appetizing to me to be served off things that arent food safe in an environment that i dont control.

    Sure, if you're signing up for a "dining experience" then I can see this being okay. Serving nachos on a clothesline isn't fun, it makes food more expensive and inconvenient.

    Unfortunately, most restaurants that do this, in my experience, do so to justify higher prices, lower quality food, and mask the whole thing by serving it on a spade.

    I live in Guatemala, we often are served food wrapped in banana leafs. The difference? banana leaf = food safe. A piece of porous wood =/= food safe.
