    [–] CMV: Military spouses and dependents should not be regarded as heroic as their military sponsor. WelfareBear 4 points ago in changemyview

    Technically it’s not a sacrifice if you don’t have a choice. It’s more of a penalty. Sacrifice, by definition, has to be intentional.

    [–] Ghost stories - Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery” is still chilling WelfareBear 14 points ago in books

    Thus US im guessing. Where did you grow up that this wouldn’t be allowed?

    [–] She could save others from obesity, but not herself. WelfareBear 12 points ago in PrequelMemes

    Fuck I dont give a shot about sobriety. Give me a reasonable, honest, drunk politician and I’ll be a happy voter.

    [–] TIL the Chocolate Chip Cookie didn’t exist prior to 1938, when it was invented by the owner of the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts. WelfareBear 64 points ago in todayilearned

    I was out drinking in Washington, D.C. a few years ago and these french girls came up to us and asked for a cig. We obliged, hung out for a while, and this one girl was flirting with my buddy so we all tried to keep the others entertained. One thing leads to another, and these girls start bitching about America’s global influence and how there’s a frackin McD’s in sight of the Eiffel Tower. Like I get it, but how is that my fault, and if you hate America so much MAYBE DONT COME TO OUR NATION’S CAPITAL. Like sheesh, Parisians make it hard to be anything resembling a Francophile

    [–] Jaywalking in traffic... wcgw? WelfareBear 7 points ago in Whatcouldgowrong

    You sound stupid when you use words like “feels” unironically. You’d be doing yourself a favor to just speak like a normal human.

    [–] TIL chicken sold in supermarkets are "plumped" with water or brine before being sold, some breasts can be up to 40% water after plumping WelfareBear 11 points ago in todayilearned

    Put your cost per protein is the same. Plumping the chicken doesnt make it more affordable, it just makes a smaller amount seem more affordable. The economic reality is that it costs money and poor people would be better served by buying a smaller amount of unplumped chicken that someone didnt waste time and money plumping in the first place.

    [–] What are some of your controversial views regarding books? WelfareBear 1 points ago in books

    His I, Robot series is fantastic as well. The first is a collection o short stories set in the same universe and develops the world. The second two are essentially detective sci-fi noir. Forget anything about the movies.

    [–] What are some of your controversial views regarding books? WelfareBear 2 points ago in books

    I’ve always loved Catcher. I read it when I was 16 so maybe I identified more with Holden than I would now, but I still think it’s a great bildungsroman. Plus, I learned the word “bildungsroman” while reading it. Great word, that; I use it whenever I can.

    [–] Lucid dreamers of Reddit, have you ever tried to go to sleep in your dream? What happened? WelfareBear 1 points ago in AskReddit

    “Going to sleep in my dream” is one of the only ways I can consciously end a lucid dream. Works about half the time, then I wake up.

    [–] Golf Deals of the Day - 5/16/2018 WelfareBear 1 points ago in golf

    “Stability ion brands”? How stupid do you have to be to advertise such bullshit?

    [–] Golf Deals of the Day - 5/16/2018 WelfareBear 1 points ago in golf

    Ya even the stupidest people I know don’t believe in that junk. They’re up there with spirit crystals and homeopathy. Just ridiculous in every sense of the word, up to and including in the sense that I would publicly ridicule someone for wearing one for any reason other than fashion.

    [–] Drug users of reddit, what is a drug you will NEVER use again? WelfareBear 5 points ago in AskReddit

    I think we’ve all met this guy at a party before. Fun to laugh at, if nothing else hahaha

    [–] Drug users of reddit, what is a drug you will NEVER use again? WelfareBear 7 points ago in AskReddit

    No man, your just subscribing to some new-age malarkey that spiritualizes mundane events. You were just high. Watch a recording of yourself when your tripping balls, that’s the reality of the situation. There’s no existential magic here, your consciousness remains in your body, you’re just really high.

    [–] Drug users of reddit, what is a drug you will NEVER use again? WelfareBear 4 points ago in AskReddit

    Been there done that; you’re just really fucking high, nothing more.

    [–] Which U.S. state has the best chance at coming out on top of a free for all? Why? WelfareBear 0 points ago in AskReddit

    Well we clearly had different experiences. Most if the kids I met from Amherst were spoiled yuppies who didn’t do a lick of worthwhile work.

    [–] Which U.S. state has the best chance at coming out on top of a free for all? Why? WelfareBear -1 points ago in AskReddit

    Have...have you been to Amherst College? Overall I agree with you but you’re looking in the wrong place is all.

    [–] Which U.S. state has the best chance at coming out on top of a free for all? Why? WelfareBear 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Lol I hope you mean UMass Amherst and not Amherst College...UMass is a stretch for sure but I’m pretty sure the boys over at Amherst College don’t know the meaning of the word “research”. Deconstructive lit and history degrees only get you so far during wartime!
