    [–] Women, what do men think YOU want in a man that you really don't care about, physically, mentally etc.? Samgt27 12 points ago in AskReddit

    Not sure if this is universal but just speaking from experience. As a shorter guy who has dated a girl the same height as me I actually found a lot of guys (especially friends) would make fun of me (often jokingly) about not being taller than my girl. Not sure if this is common but if it is it could explain insecurities. I have found over the years no matter what a lot of taller guys like to use their height as leverage against me, which to me seems a little pathetic as it's not like I can put in hard work in order to grow.

    [–] What small thing should be illegal because it pisses you off on a daily basis? Samgt27 2 points ago in AskReddit

    When airports force everyone to walk through a store and the path you need to walk is lined with perfumes. I suppose nobody has ever heard of asthmatics or just people that are allergic to scents. Either way I now get to enjoy riding out an asthma attack while I wait to board my flight.

    [–] TIL that sustaining a second concussion before fully recovering from an initial one (even an extremely minor one) can cause a condition called Second Impact Syndrome, which causes severe brain damage 100% of the time and frequently results in death. Samgt27 3 points ago in todayilearned

    I think that's the key is to avoid lingering on the thought of it. At the end of the day I accepted you cannot undo the damage already caused and whatever happens as a result will happen. All you can do is ensure you avoid further concussions and if you do to be extremely cautious with it. I've been diagnosed with brain damage as a result of repeat concussions which causes all sorts of issues but you just learn to live with them and honestly while every case is obviously much varied due to the nature of concussions, I personally have been able to continue to live relatively happily despite it all.

    [–] [1:00 GMT] Toronto FC vs Colorado Samgt27 1 points ago in soccerstreams

    Nvm I'm dumb. Get the MLS live app and it should be free in there right now.

    Any idea how to make that work? I created an account and it shows the game existing but nothing happens when I click it.

    [–] Canadians Are Mad as Hell at Tim Hortons - Boycotts & pickets are some of the responses to Tim Hortons franchisees stripping paid breaks & benefits to their workers. Samgt27 -2 points ago in worldnews

    I'm just saying Kathleen Wynne and her decision to put in such a dramatic change with little warning is the route problem. Of course this cannot be undone but she plans to continue raising minimum wage unnecessarily in the future so I would say the coming election would be the solution there. However, I am not trying to tell people how to vote I am just saying that people should vote in an educated manor.

    [–] Canadians Are Mad as Hell at Tim Hortons - Boycotts & pickets are some of the responses to Tim Hortons franchisees stripping paid breaks & benefits to their workers. Samgt27 8 points ago in worldnews

    I mean why boycott Tim Hortons for reacting to a shitty call from our provincial government in order to ensure the business doesn't suffer greatly. How about address the route of the problem. Quick reminder there are provincial elections coming up this summer.

    [–] Canadians Are Mad as Hell at Tim Hortons - Boycotts & pickets are some of the responses to Tim Hortons franchisees stripping paid breaks & benefits to their workers. Samgt27 7 points ago in worldnews

    Exactly, businesses (especially small) cannot survive with these changes so workers will lose benefits and prices will go up. With prices increasing that means we will now pay more for food, and basically everywhere in life we will pay more but food is most important of course. Tim's workers for example will now have to use the extra cash they get on the benefits they no longer receive, however, now they have to pay more for food so overall it is likely they actually are going to have less extra cash on them. It is pretty simple to see. Not to mention the number of small businesses that are already closing down (in rural areas) is ridiculous and very sad to see. My rural small town is going to have nothing left after this but a Tim's, McDonalds, and Subway. It's kind of depressing.

    [–] People feeling down, what is making you feel that way? Samgt27 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Thank you, I sure hope so. I received majority of these concussions around 4 or 5 years ago and since have suffered from depression and some other issues. I kind of just had assumed that a lot of it was that stage of my life I had changes occurring and I told myself the depressive feelings were normal. It progressively got worse and the symptoms became more aggressive into university as stress levels increased so I saw a doctor about it. It has also led to ADD but I have medication now that somewhat works and I mean I willed myself on for nearly 5 years through depression with no aids at all so I just keep on going haha. My one hope is that the brain damage hasn't destined me for some form of brain degenerative disorder with age but I suppose there is no way to tell but time.

    [–] People feeling down, what is making you feel that way? Samgt27 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I was recently diagnosed with permenant brain damage at the age of 18 as a result of a ridiculous amount of concussions. The list of implications it has on my life is quite something. Icant even get drunk without feeling like I'm concussed for the following week. Oh yeah mostly exams though honestly those are hell.

    [–] What are some red flags we should recognise within ourselves? Samgt27 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Just want to mention a lot of these responses refer to early symptoms of depression. Depression can sneak in without you fully realizing you are suffering and it can have massive affects on your life as indicated by these red flags. If you're suspicious that this may apply to you please sit down with somebody you trust or even just yourself and take a good hard look and figure out what you can do to solve this before it worsened. I ignored my depression for five years and trust me that is a horrible idea it will just build up and get worse exponentially as the worse it gets the less desirable you are to be around. Face it immediately and get help please.

    [–] Video shows Charlotte man had arms raised when police shot him - Story Samgt27 0 points ago in news

    I too was taught to question the media in my mandatory general English classes back in high school in Canada.

    [–] Thugs who throw acid can now be given a life sentence, even if they miss their victim Samgt27 1 points ago in worldnews

    Well thank fuck that was cleared up finally. I can't believe previous perpetrators of this crime received such light punishments in comparison to what their victims had to deal with. Just horrific. Anybody who even considers this ought to burn in hell.

    [–] Police say man threatens to kill Wendy's employee because he felt his salad didn't contain enough cucumbers Samgt27 1 points ago in news

    Yeah I recieved a death threat (in quite interesting detail) from a lovely lady over pizza once. Then again I mean it was pizza and I also would kill for pizza.

    [–] No countries with nukes adopted the U.N.’s “historic” nuke ban Samgt27 2 points ago in worldnews

    Here in Canada we threw away our nuke rights when we couldn't find a big enough way to say sorry.

    [–] Report: Putin Sanctioned Whistleblower’s Murder in Paris Samgt27 3 points ago in worldnews

    While I don't doubt this would happen it has to be said I'm always skeptical of the validity of information when the first line ends with "BuzzFeed reports"

    [–] 'Gunshots' at Paris's Notre Dame - BBC News Samgt27 9 points ago in worldnews

    Man I hate the clickbait titles! I mean don't get me wrong I'm glad the situation wasn't too severe but "gunshots" makes it sound as though somebody just opened fire on people when realistically the shots were fired by police. Unless the title was put there before the article updated but still it's just frustrating.

    [–] 20 million people are starving and the media only cares about Trump says UN Samgt27 0 points ago in worldnews

    To be fair, Trump in the news is at least usually news. There is good reason for him being in the news often. It is much better than celebrities.

    [–] Big sunken boat in lake Samgt27 2 points ago in interestingasfuck

    They have a glass-bottomed boat that you can go on and view all the wrecks in the area as there are quite a few. It is a beautiful area and definitely worth visiting.
