    I had thought it was a mystery box of girl scout cookies, like you don't know what flavor

    [–] Tennessee becomes first state in the South with hate crime law protecting transgender people flamingfireworks 3 points ago in UpliftingNews

    Imo having it in school is a bad gateway, considering that being mantated to go somewhere that can't say it's impartial to religious beliefs is a bad look.

    [–] Streamer in L.A. shot in leg by security guard flamingfireworks 47 points ago in LivestreamFail

    Yes, but even "do not point your gun if you arent about to shoot it" is a law (to prevent people accidentally being shot, as well as to prevent the streets from sounding like a warzone if a bunch of boomers decide a group of teenagers walking on the sidewalk constitutes warning shots, and to prevent people "accidentally" tagging someone with a warning shot).

    Some states, especially ones with "stand your ground" and castle doctrine type laws will, even when its not outright covered by the law, have courts more favorable to a security guard popping off shots because a guys being annoying. States such as california, massachusetts, etc where there's more of a record of self defense laws being "if you can get away or behind a locked door/wall, you dont have the right to shoot them" will have less legal precedents as well as courts that look less favorably upon people who do things such as shooting someone in the leg for being a bit of a prick.

    [–] anyone else feel like their voice is getting less loud/softer because of the CBD ? flamingfireworks 1 points ago in CBD

    Alright, thank you!

    I dont intend to smoke anything with nicotine in it ever, if thats what causes it. Does the plant matter from using a pipe cause it? and does vaping flower rather than cartridges have any carcinogens or anything in it?

    Wanna try that again without getting pissed off over a suggestion

    [–] anyone else feel like their voice is getting less loud/softer because of the CBD ? flamingfireworks 1 points ago in CBD

    I'm considering vaping cbd, but I don't want to get a deeper or growly voice. Raspy is alright with me, but ideally not deep.

    Banks of all businesses can afford to hire more people, or pay someone enough money for them to be happy with staying later.

    Also some employees are hired solely to come up with ideas for how to manage other people's jobs to maximize productivity and such

    [–] anyone else feel like their voice is getting less loud/softer because of the CBD ? flamingfireworks 1 points ago in CBD

    So, are those there at all on pure CBD extracts/tinctures/vape juices?

    Im asking because a deeper/fuller voice tone is the exact oposite of what i want for myself.

    [–] anyone else feel like their voice is getting less loud/softer because of the CBD ? flamingfireworks 2 points ago in CBD

    Is this long term? im worried that it could (over time) make my voice raspy (the way that long term cigarette smokers get)

    [–] But muh farting cows flamingfireworks 2 points ago in ChapoTrapHouse

    Not to be a centrist, but i feel like theres a HUGE middle ground between "we should only allow billionaires to prototype boring ass electric cars and no other personal motor vehicles should be allowed" and "we should only allow cars from when a fender bender could have easily killed you, a gallon of gas might get you all the way down the road, and earmuffs are required if you dont want them to blast out your hearing".

    [–] Seems fair flamingfireworks 6 points ago in ChapoTrapHouse

    Thats fair, although imo it still works as a solid critique in the way that its kinda like "look at how fucked this system is where even people who are doing pretty okay at first get their shit fucked and ruined"

    Not as some "think of the poor millionaires" thing, but as a "what kind of fucking system makes it so the only way to win or be satisfied in it is to be the only person out of billions or millions who has everything"

    [–] Seems fair flamingfireworks 41 points ago in ChapoTrapHouse

    isnt that the entire point of the game?

    Like, intentionally not fun towards the end as a critique of how capitalism allows single people/groups to take everything and keep everyone down.

    [–] But muh farting cows flamingfireworks 9 points ago in ChapoTrapHouse

    So why should the only vehicles available be inefficient and dangerous?

    Sorry dude, you're on too many levels of irony for me to keep up with

    [–] The US Government is about to put a dog tag on your drone flamingfireworks 1 points ago in gadgets

    man, im so fucking anti law as a whole, but things like traffic laws are the only shit that's actually productive for society.

    "its not fair for the city to tell me that im not allowed to leave my car on a part of their property not designated for my vehicle, generally for safety reasons" is a galaxy take. Besides it not being your road if you're not rockerfeller or some shit, "no parking" tends to be because people need to be able to move a vehicle there for fire or just transportation reasons.

    And no parking signs also mean "if you leave your car here, we are going to take it". Its not telling you theres some magical barrier, its telling you that a car there can and will be towed if they catch it there. The reasoning being that you're either being a dick intentionally, or that you cant read street signs/cant see them (in which case, your drivers license should be confiscated).

    In fairness though, i sympathize with you. I run every red light i see and dont even slow down at stop signs, its fucking bullshit that THE MAN gets to tell me what i can and cant do with my car amirite
