    [–] Women who like romance novels, what books do you recommend? actuallywaffles 1 points ago in AskWomen

    Receiver of Many by Rachel Alexander. It's about Hades and Persephone and is honestly amazing. The characters really grow through the book, and you really feel attached to their story. Plus it really seems to lack a lot of the overused cliches that it feels like romance novels are kinda criticized for having. It's a retelling of a myth, but has a very original and new feeling to it.

    [–] What's your favorite song to have sex to? actuallywaffles 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Exactly. Not even for the memes. It's just a great song.

    [–] What do you hate about tinder? actuallywaffles 0 points ago in AskReddit

    All the guys in my area are ugly, have kids, or are definitely gonna murder me. I live between a major city and a military base, and we're surrounded by like 8-9 colleges. Somehow, with all the possible guys available in that entire search area, I have only found like 2 guys whose profiles I even liked. At this point I only open the app to find weird looking pictures or bios to send to friends, because my options are just bad here.

    [–] What did you find in someone’s bedroom that changed the way you think about them? actuallywaffles 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Visited a friend in another country last year, and while staying in his apartment with him I saw his bookshelf in his living room. I'd always known he'd loved to read, but it was really neat to learn more about him through the types of books he liked. And throughout the shelf he had little belongings like statues he'd gotten as gifts or pictures of his family, and it was really sweet. Everything from a photo of his late grandmother to the candle his little brother had given him were clearly very treasured things. He's a really quiet, and serious guy who really builds up walls and pushes people away. It was kinda nice to see that I was being shown a side he really tries to keep guarded from others. Made me realize how close of friends we really are even if he doesn't show it the way most people do.

    [–] People that have had their wisdom teeth removed, how long did it take for you to feel good enough to function and go to work and stuff? actuallywaffles 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I got bottom and top removed in the same day, and honestly it wasn't bad. I could work same day if I'd wanted to, and it really didn't change anything major in the time it took to heal. Eating was annoying for a bit, but only because it was inconvenient to keep the spots clean. A liquid diet for the first few days can help. I didn't end up taking the pain killers, but I've always had a high tolerance for pain so that might not be unusual. Drink some tea, and put the bags on the sockets to help ease some of the pain if you don't like pain killers. I think the tea I used was black tea, but it's been a couple years.

    [–] Do you prefer your apples sliced or whole? If sliced, peeled or not peeled? actuallywaffles 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Peeled, cored, and sliced into rings is my favorite. It reminds me of when I was a kid, because that's what my mom would always do. Just a pleasant nostalgia to it I suppose.

    [–] Blues fans setup fundraiser for the blind after NHL ref’s miss hand pass actuallywaffles 3 points ago in nottheonion

    I love that Midwestern weapons grade levels of sass. Missouri doesn't have a ton going for it, but sometimes I'm pretty proud of being from there.

    [–] What’s your favorite movie? actuallywaffles 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I mean, I think it's pretty unfair to call it "a botched version". I genuinely enjoy and prefer the English version because being able to understand it lets me relate to the emotion in it more than if I were just reading subtitles instead. Do you get pissed that there are movie versions of Les Misérables in English instead of French? Do you only read The Illiad in it's original Greek or Goethe's Faust in it's original German? Making something more accessible to people doesn't ruin it.

    Yes, you are gatekeeping, and you're doing it in a super condescending way.

    [–] What’s your favorite movie? actuallywaffles 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I mean...yeah, but I still like it just fine in English so I'm not really worried about taking on the role of translating the movie for fun right now...

    [–] What’s the weirdest thing your parallel universe you doing right now? actuallywaffles 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Probably leading a happy, mentally stable life and with a guy that is emotionally prepared for a relationship. Can't relate, but good for her at least.

    [–] What’s your favorite movie? actuallywaffles 2 points ago in AskReddit

    I mean, I've seen both, and I don't think it makes that big a difference. The English voice acting is actually really good in my opinion. Plus I don't speak Japanese, so watching the original just means kinda ignoring the vocals and reading subtitles instead...

    [–] Explain what is going through the minds of Alabama law makers currently? actuallywaffles 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I'm guessing some thoughts about siblings or first cousins that would make any normal person throw up since apparently incest isn't worth an exception...

    [–] Who’s a person that deserves more recognition than what they get? actuallywaffles 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Delivery drivers whose customers think of the delivery fee as a tip, or who just don't tip at all. Most companies don't give them anything for delivering outside of their base pay, and if you don't tip they're losing money driving out there to give you your food.

    [–] You have to sell a candy wrapper for over 10 dollars. How do you do it? actuallywaffles 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Buy this candy wrapper now for $10 and I'll throw in this free (insert item worth over $10 here)! If they ask why I'm doing it this way just say "Tax reasons".

    [–] What is the best video game you have ever played? actuallywaffles 2 points ago in AskReddit

    World of Warcraft is a favorite of mine. For all it's flaws it still has so much depth and fun. Even at times when I wasn't a fan of the story I could still spend hours playing around with pets, talking in chat, or running raids. There was always something to do, and if I ever felt like I just couldn't handle doing any of those there were plenty of places to just fly around and enjoy the scenery.

    [–] What’s your favorite movie? actuallywaffles 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Yeah definitely. Studio Ghibli makes such great movies, and it's wonderful how they present the stories and topics they convey. I actually read the book before I ever knew there was a movie, and while they're almost completely different it's also my favorite book. I think they did an amazing job of capturing the heart of each character for sure.

    [–] How would science progress be if reasearch was free? actuallywaffles 2 points ago in AskReddit

    I'd imagine a lot more would be done towards helping people, and a lot less would be done to build weapons.

    [–] people of Reddit that was close to committing suicide what made you stop? actuallywaffles 2 points ago in AskReddit

    I was sitting at home the other night thinking about how much I'm just tired of just feeling so alone all the time. Grabbed a bottle of pain killers, and as I was opening the bottle and thinking about ending my life I got a message on discord from a friend asking me to play games. This friend is like a baby brother to me, and it just crushed me to think about the fact that if I die he'd probably never find out. And if I left a note so that he'd at least know what happened there's just no way I could tell him why because I'd never want him to feel like when I say I feel alone I mean that he's not enough of a friend for me to be okay. I have adult friends that would take it hard, but they'd be okay...But he's just a teenager, and thinking about him putting him through that just hurt too much.
    I ended up telling a roommate later that night about what I'd been going through, and had him throw away the pills so I wouldn't be tempted not to. I'm still not in a great place, but I'm just trying to get better. And I know it's better to live for yourself than for other people, but right now it's at least nice to have those other people when I'm not strong enough for me. I don't know how I can thank my friend, but I hope he never feels how I did that night.

    [–] Introverts of reddit (including me), what's a behavior that you thought was normal until someone told you othewise? What did you do about it? actuallywaffles 7 points ago in AskReddit

    Found out most people know how to make friends, and don't look up guides online before social situations. Honestly haven't done anything about that, other than stopped telling people that I had to read a guide on making friends...

    [–] What screams I’m a dad more than squeezing a drill twice to rev it up before using it? actuallywaffles 3 points ago in AskReddit

    My dad's go to golfing or out in public with the family outfit was always reflective sunglasses, a tie-dye shirt, faded shorts that were sky blue on one leg and salmon pink on the other, and the classic socks with sandals.

    [–] You want to make the worst song imaginable, how do you accomplish that? actuallywaffles 1 points ago in AskReddit

    That feat was already accomplished in a way I can't beat, so I'd probably just look up my friend's ex's youtube channel...the dude insisted on bringing an acoustic guitar to school and singing country songs he wrote about her breaking up with him because he knew she hated country music. And he'd do this in every single class throughout the day...That level of secondhand embarrassment and awful vocals combined should really be classified as a war crime.
