    [–] What do you consider to be "American food?" Flaming_gerbil 1 points ago in AskReddit

    As an English person, the idea of putting gravy on a biscuit sounds disgusting. This may be an occasion where an English biscuit isn't called a biscuit in the USA. And no, a cookie and a biscuit aren't the same thing here either.

    Much better than when thanos snapped his neck (I can't be the only one who thinks he looks like Tom hiddleston?)

    [–] Teams with beautiful synergy Flaming_gerbil 2 points ago in DissidiaFFOO

    Noctis, madoyo and hope been my team recently. Got MLB ex on the first 2 and all 3 have 15/35 and 6 star passives. No luck with kitty ex so far :(

    [–] What was the most unsafe thing you've seen someone do at a gym? Flaming_gerbil -13 points ago in AskReddit

    Dunny why people are getting hurt about 'all genders' as opposed to 'both genders' when they're the same thing?

    [–] What Pavlovian response have you developed? Flaming_gerbil 1 points ago in AskReddit

    That's actually a really good idea that I hadn't considered. I'll look into it. Caller id helps with the phone, I just screen calls I don't want to answer.

    You can sort of do this now. Simply close the game, and then reload it. When you reload, it asks you if you want to continue battle, choose yes and you'll start at the beginning of the wave you were on before closing out.

    Then you'd use day if its recent, example 'do you want to meet on the 19th?

    Add month if it's further away, example' there's a concert on 7th July, would you like to come? '

    Finally, add year if it's further away or in the past, example' I plan to get married on 14th August 2020'.

    Can even go a step further and add time in, you could write 8pm 11/01/2019 or simply say 'see you at 8'.

    What you write and what you say can be different, and culturally, Americans have been conditioned to use mm/dd so obviously the & dd/mm system most of the rest of the world use would feel alien to Americans just as much as mm/dd feels alien to most of the rest of the world. (seriously, look it up, only a handful of countries use mm/dd/yyyy primarily)

    Oh, you mean who we say something is seventeen pounds but write Β£17? Written date system does make more sense as dd/mm/yyyy so 10/01/2019 you're unlikely to say 'ten zero one two thousand nineteen' just as you're unlikely to say pound seventeen. Written and spoken are separate entities, as reddit comments are text based, thats the part I was aiming at. Hope this clears things up.

    Whoops, I knew that one too. Still holds true as they use the same date system, I'll edit the above to reflect this. Good catch.

    A what now? I'm not American, this sounds like a Spanish thing though?

    [–] This lock's combo Flaming_gerbil 10 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    I'm with you there. America doesn't like to make sense though, they just like to be set in their ways. I'm sure that some Americans believe that if the metric system comes into play then that means everyone will have to speak German and become transgender Muslim vegan antivaxxers else nuclear war against China will begin, funded by the Russians.

    It's fine, Hitler was German, and in Europe we use dd/mm/yyyy, so it was on 20/04/1889.

    Edit : Hitler was Austrian, but was chancellor of Germany, Europe in general uses dd/mm/yyyy so the birth date still holds true though.

    Date system makes the best sense as YYYY/MM/DD tbh, its the best system overall for filing etc, I've never understood the whole MM/DD/YYYY thing, as it seems out of order and I've always known people to say 3rd February etc here.

    It's especially strange how many Americans say 4th of July, but any other date they would say January 15th etc. Don't even get started on Fahrenheit, pounds and inches vs just embracing the metric system...

    [–] What Pavlovian response have you developed? Flaming_gerbil 6 points ago in AskReddit

    About ten years ago I was in pretty bad debt and was mostly ignoring it. As a result, bailiffs would come to the house to try to collect the debts, and I would hide and ignore the door. Same for unknown/withheld numbers that call my phone.

    I'm 100% debt free now (finally cleared the last bit 2 months ago!) and haven't had anyone coming to collect for 4 years since I started repayment plays, but still, if someone knocks on my door unexpectedly or calls I don't recognise, I'll still hide and ignore it.

    My family and friends know to call me before they come to my house and never drop in randomly.

    I miss so many parcels because the postman doesn't arrive at a set time.

    I'd really like to fix this and be able to answer a door/phone call without issues, but don't know how.

    Cutting in a queue is still punishable by death in England.
