    [–] The world raised 8x more money to rebuild Notre Dame cathedral than help Mozambique recover from a cyclone in 1/30th of the time. NaomiNekomimi 2 points ago in Showerthoughts

    Yeah, I may have let my emotions through a little in my first comment. I get a little heated and frustrated at how much people prioritize wealth accumulation over things they could fix without feeling a dent in their bank account.

    [–] I know the halo hype has disappeared a bit but I thought I might dig this out and share it. NaomiNekomimi 1 points ago in gaming

    God, it feels like yesterday I was having these pre-orders mentioned to me at Gamestop. Where does all the time go?

    [–] Oh.. ok... NaomiNekomimi 7 points ago in funny

    Absolutely not offended, though I will say as someone who is half French and quite tied to the culture it does hurt me a little inside to have something that literally made me cry joked about so willy nilly. But I doubt the French of all people would ever get upset at someone for making silly jokes on the internet.

    I think people should learn to be disheartened or bothered by something without commanding that it no longer exist. Sometimes what bothers you says more about you than the person doing the bothering.

    [–] Will we be able to synthesize any more new elements? What about a whole new “line” of elements? NaomiNekomimi 1 points ago in askscience

    What do we hope to gain by pursuing these higher echelons of elements? I'm all for knowledge for the sake of knowledge, I'm just curious if there are any benefits or uses that we can predict for the future.

    [–] 420,000 counterfeit xanax pills from dark web distributors, seized by police, estimated street worth: $3,000,000 NaomiNekomimi 1 points ago in interestingasfuck

    As someone who suffered through a xanax addiction last year this picture is giving me the strangest and most conflicting feelings. Sort of like seeing an abusive ex you still have feelings for but know is dangerous and terrible.

    Though they are counterfeit, so who am I kidding they are probably all fentanyl.

    [–] A mosquito's foot at 800X magnification. NaomiNekomimi 6 points ago in interestingasfuck

    Looks like something you'd see in a bad acid trip.

    [–] Couldn't afford to spend my pocket money, so my friend really surprised me with getting Sekiro just because he remembers "you like samurais, right?". I was laughing and crying at the same time, and I don't remember when I felt that way NaomiNekomimi 3 points ago in gaming

    As a tip, practice fighting enemies in more than one way. It may be easiest to do the one thing that you have found works, but if you do you'll miss the opportunity to practice different things, and you'll have to figure them out once you fight a boss that does them. Stuff like the deadly attack counters and perfect deflections. You really do have to actually deliberately practice the fighting, because of how skill based it is. I think you'll love it, just don't get discouraged if it doesn't click right away.

    [–] Two university students blamed for a forest fire in the Italian region of Como have been fined €13.5m (£11.7m). NaomiNekomimi 33 points ago in news

    Yeah, I dunno. I think if you start a fire but it's an accident and then you did everything you could to stop it ESPECIALLY alerting authorities then the punishment should be dramatically lessened, especially with a high risk area like that. This feels like ruining people's lives for one stupid mistake, not justice.

    If you accidentally start a fire and then run away and hide you get fined millions. If you accidentally start a fire and then call authorities and try to put it out, you get some community service but not an obscene amount.

    Seriously, it feels like people don't consider the precedent their actions set. If you yell at your kid for being honest about fucking up it won't stop them from fucking up in the future but it sure will stop them from telling you.

    [–] My girlfriend's stapler doesnt use staples NaomiNekomimi 1 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    I'm no expert, but I've had a major artery punctured before by a small needle more than once. You'd die pretty quick even with a small puncture wound, just due to the obscene pressure.

    Obviously this would be significantly easier to do to yourself than someone else, which is probably the reason they don't have staples.

    [–] Trump vetoes bill to end US military support for Saudi-led war in Yemen NaomiNekomimi 2 points ago in worldnews

    What you said about him is true, but keep in mind how underhanded and manipulative his people are. The quality of an individual does not matter if the only things people know about them are cleverly fabricated lies and misinformation.

    [–] Uber lets female drivers block male passengers in Saudi Arabia NaomiNekomimi 1 points ago in worldnews

    Atheists are WAY too big of a group to summarize so succinctly. Remember, you're not talking about a specific religion's followers, you're talking about the "No Religion" option. It's not just one group of people you can generalize.

    [–] Uber lets female drivers block male passengers in Saudi Arabia NaomiNekomimi 41 points ago in worldnews

    God is used as an excuse by shitty people to do shitty things.

    I'm not saying there's no place for spirituality, but you have to acknowledge that religion is a common thread in some of the worst aspects of humanity.

    [–] Everyone talks up Black Panther for being really diverse, but in reality, it's one of the least diverse films ever made. NaomiNekomimi 2 points ago in Showerthoughts

    The main thing I had a problem with was how much of a "I'm better than you" attitude they had in the whole movie. Sort of felt like a characature or a joke because of how much it was just like, Wakanda is objectively better than anything else and even a little kid character is such a genius that she sees the main characters who are quite intelligent and educated as idiots.

    I really love the idea of a movie celebrating and giving other countries and ethnicities the limelight. I know personally I would love and identify with a story about a native hero learning and uncovering the importance of their people's history. But did they really need to shit on the main cast and the entire rest of the world just to hammer in the whole "Wakanda is objectively better than you at everything" thing? It just felt a little bit excessive to me and broke my immersion a lot. It wasn't a terrible movie, but it was overrated as hell and honestly just kind of annoying to me. I'm not even normally a super critical person, it just wasn't a very enjoyable watch for me during a lot of parts.

    [–] What's the best closing passage/sentence you ever read in a book? NaomiNekomimi 6 points ago in books

    "'You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world, old man. But you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices. I hope she likes her's.'

    I do, Augustus. I do."

    Maybe not the most artsy pick but The Fault in Our Stars has always had a special place in my heart because it's what got me into reading, and that ending made me cry like a baby.

    [–] WCGW if I lit a firework in my pants? NaomiNekomimi 1 points ago in Whatcouldgowrong

    Speak for yourself, but I'm not even a dude. I'm far from jealous of bro-type people like that, I just notice the trend.

    [–] Fire breaks out at historic Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris NaomiNekomimi 4 points ago in worldnews

    Yeah... watching the clip of the spiral falling made me start crying immediately. It took generations to build and construction started in the 10th fucking century.

    [–] Turning a van into a home NaomiNekomimi 12 points ago in interestingasfuck

    I feel like my dream life would just be getting something like this and travelling the country in it while freelancing or contracting.
