    [–] What is usual in Europe, but unusual in America? falconbox 0 points ago * (lasted edited 3 hours ago) in AskReddit

    Here you go!

    You can read the whole study if you want, but here's the abstract and source:

    Evaluation of current evidence indicates that the health benefits of newborn male circumcision outweigh the risks and that the procedure’s benefits justify access to this procedure for families who choose it. Specific benefits identified included prevention of urinary tract infections, penile cancer, and transmission of some sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has endorsed this statement.

    What made you even look for this?

    If you're not from the US it's hard to understand. Canada too, since they have different taxes for each province.

    These are 2 huge countries, each bigger than all of Europe. It's simply infeasible to have the same tax throughout the entire country.

    Massively different populations in each state, different types of economies, etc. Not to mention that the US is based on the fact that each state has its own rights and government that can often supercede the federal government.

    If you add up the total of 3 larger states (New York, California, Florida) with 20+ million people, there's more people there than almost any European countries. Then there's several states that have under 1 million people, which is less people than Estonia. You simply can't govern and tax those states the same.

    Tell that to Insomniac. They directly called it an easter egg on their twitter today.

    I don't think that one is true. Played it on 360 and PS4 and I'm pretty sure it's a toggle.

    Bad experiences with Philly fans. Mainly in Sabres/Flyers games, but still, it soured me on Philadelphia.

    Also, misery loves company. I don't want another team winning their first Super Bowl before the Bills.

    Not an easter egg for the game, but for the trailer. They purposely hid little things in the trailer that weren't a focus.

    Then why does the American Association of Pediatrics even say it? I'll trust them over random not a doctor redditors.

    Killing from circumcision....I'd have to say it's VERY low risk. The studies that I cited actually say the benefits outweigh the risks.

    I always liked this one the best from that same photoshoot. There's a slightly more zoomed out one I can find with her legs too, but it's not as high quality. First one seems to be from Maxim Australia, and the second from Maxim US.

    If I need to purchase a lot of heavy bulky items, I either split it up, use the bike as a "mule" (pushing it), or rent a car from a car sharing scheme by the hour.

    That sounds terribly inconvenient. I can't imagine trying to bring home 20 bags of groceries on a bike, and suddenly it begins pouring rain.

    Pediatric associations have proven it lowers the risk of STDs, cancer, and urinary tract infects, among other health benefits.

    We're well past that point. People are already comparing them.

    It's like trying to compare a vasectomy to getting your tubes tied. (not comparable)

    No.

    I'm sure your son will thank for those...

    Just...so much wrong with this statement.

    Irish Republican Army. Lots of terrorist incidents (mainly car bombs and stuff) in the past. Hence the alcoholic drink named the Irish Car Bomb.

    He's totally wrong. You absolutely can drink in parks, beaches, etc in the US.

    What about nationwide advertisements?

    "$5 footlong" was a popular Subway sub ad, but of course that comes to different totals based on state.
