    [–] Daily advice thread. All questions about your personal situation should be asked here dezradeath 3 points ago in investing

    Classic book you can get for cheap is "The Intelligent Investor" by Benjamin Graham. Gives you a basic understanding of investing for getting started. Even experienced investors like Warren Buffet recommend it.

    [–] Ladies, what are some things in a guy's apartment that set off red flags? dezradeath 45 points ago in AskReddit

    Remember those security deposits a landlord collects in the beginning? Guess what pays for professional cleaning when the tenants try to move out and leaves the property in a horrific state?

    [–] AMZN or SHOP, if you had to pick one for a 5-10 year hold. dezradeath 0 points ago in investing

    They were implying that OP shouldn't invest at all in the two. Hence the downvotes.

    [–] What stock(s) have you previously owned, but is never going to buy again, and why? dezradeath 6 points ago in investing

    I've traded AMD for the past year and in the end it's at the same price it was a year ago. The fundamentals of the company are finally improving but for me to make a sound long term position in them I need a confident record that shows they can continue making a profit.

    [–] If you woke up to find 99.99% of the population disappeared overnight, what would you do? dezradeath 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Well it depends on how many people were driving overnight. Say this happened at midnight, it wouldn't be as many cars as you'd think.

    [–] What was bad, then good, then bad again? dezradeath 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Pre-Sequels on the other hand are an odd bunch. Borderlands had one and technically also Lion King 1.5 was one too. At certain parts they have their moments of joy, but altogether they seem like a waste of time.

    The only reason I ever get Dominos is the value for a cheap pizza. The one near me had a deal of $6 large pizzas after 10pm every night. College me loved it. Adult me gags at the fact I did it so often.

    One thing I've always wanted to ask about free range chicken eggs, how do you collect the eggs? Is there someone that walks around picking up every egg in a field? Please educate me if I sound like a foolish city boy, because I am.

    Welcome to the new data-harvesters, same as the old data-harvesters.

    [–] 'Little evidence' Israel tried to minimise Gaza deaths, says UN human rights chief dezradeath 3 points ago in worldnews

    The UN unfortunately isn't an unbiased source, that's the problem. Get some other company, shit I don't care if even Reuters conducted it or Pew Research. Just someone who doesn't have a conflict of interest in the matter to investigate. And it would have to investigate violence on both sides, not one, or else it wouldn't be unbiased. I am perfectly fine with that, the UNHRC isn't an unbiased source as we've learned from experience.

    [–] 'Little evidence' Israel tried to minimise Gaza deaths, says UN human rights chief dezradeath -1 points ago in worldnews

    I just like to analyze every situation like this and I don't believe one sole report or opinion. The fact that a few days ago it was reported that 50 innocent civilians died and a day later it's revealed they were with Hamas is just an example that due diligence is needed before concluding an answer.

    [–] 'Little evidence' Israel tried to minimise Gaza deaths, says UN human rights chief dezradeath -17 points ago in worldnews

    Well since we don't know what the POV of the sniper was, it's hard to know what happened on their end. Perhaps they had intel of Hamas being dressed as medics, which isn't a farfetched idea. This isn't a cut and dry issue, it's very complex and an investigation should be done, but by an unbiased independent 3rd party. You can't just boil this down to "Israeli sniper shot doctor for the hell of it", that's not fair, and you know it.

    [–] 'Little evidence' Israel tried to minimise Gaza deaths, says UN human rights chief dezradeath -19 points ago in worldnews

    I understand that's the report from the victim himself, but are we supposed to trust the person who was shot, when they likely have an interest in the matter and could be suffering from trauma/shock of the event?

    [–] 'Little evidence' Israel tried to minimise Gaza deaths, says UN human rights chief dezradeath -11 points ago in worldnews

    Yes we all understand that and we've heard the outrage. It's not excusable. But think about the logistics and the knowledge that Hamas disguises themselves as various persons. Every human is something: a doctor, a businessman, a janitor, a chef, etc. Every Hamas agent could blend as one of those as well. They could've been in a suit and tie, they could've been wearing a PRESS vest, they could've been dressed as a medic. Through a sniper scope, you can't tell someone's life story. You have to look at their actions. We now know this man was innocent, and we've read his story. I wish we could hear the point of view of the sniper to know what threat they saw in the doctor. But until that day, it doesn't seem fair to all cry out "war crimes" and "Israel is a genocidal Nazi analogue".

    [–] Israeli PM rejects Trudeau's call for independent investigation into the Gaza shootings dezradeath 0 points ago in worldnews

    They'd be executed in 2 seconds if they went to Gaza, are you kidding? But they aren't wrong. The violence is also Hamas's fault. The shooting of this doctor is the fault of Israel, but that doesn't discredit what the MPs said.

    [–] France supports bringing Gaza massacre to UN Human Rights Council dezradeath -1 points ago in worldnews

    This is very anecdotal. We would need a valid peer reviewed study on commenters and opinions. This subject may be way too specific for anyone to even publish. I can be anecdotal at the same time. I have an old account and support Israel, won't go into detail beyond that, and I've seen accounts that are new and only yell our "apartheid" "oppression" and "Israel is taking more land".

    [–] France supports bringing Gaza massacre to UN Human Rights Council dezradeath 8 points ago in worldnews

    But would it end at that or would Palestine demand leaving Israel entirely? I predict this could just move the goalposts but not resolve the issue.

    [–] France supports bringing Gaza massacre to UN Human Rights Council dezradeath 1 points ago in worldnews

    It's actually $3 billion worth of weapon vouchers so Israel can buy arms off American military companies. Fuels the US economy and it's a loophole where the govt can give money to it's own companies.

    [–] France supports bringing Gaza massacre to UN Human Rights Council dezradeath 6 points ago in worldnews

    This whole situation is about Gaza, but IIRC all the settlements in the West Bank are being built in Area C, which was already decided in the Oslo Accords as being under Israeli control. They are literally just building more and more on the land they already have.

    [–] France supports bringing Gaza massacre to UN Human Rights Council dezradeath 8 points ago in worldnews

    There's this concept called peaceful diplomacy that for some reason the leaders of Palestine don't want to engage in.
