    [–] What is a fact that you think sounds completely false and that makes you angry that it's true? iprocrastina 273 points ago in AskReddit

    Humans are one of them. Some men have small bumps on their penises called "pearly penile papules". They're actually vestigial penis spikes.

    [–] Gulch restaurant, Milk & Honey, sued after at least 20 diners infected with salmonella iprocrastina 1 points ago in nashville

    The only restaurant that can get that many people sick with salmonella and still stay in business is Chipotle.

    [–] What popular subreddit do you hate and why? iprocrastina 8 points ago in AskReddit

    I'm dubious that anyone has ever been motivated to do anything of significance by an image with text on it.

    [–] What is the most degrading thing you've ever done for money? iprocrastina 28 points ago in AskReddit

    Experiments aren't allowed to pay much relative to what they ask you to do to avoid being so lucrative that poor people are economically coerced into it. On top of that, there are many famous experiments that gave you more money based on luck or performance. For example, gambling and cooperation tasks often have you potentially going home with a lot more or a lot less, as that's part of the experiment.

    [–] Suspect on Ten Most Wanted List Is Killed in North Carolina, F.B.I. Says iprocrastina 3 points ago in news

    Is there more to this? Burglary, attempted rape, and high speed chase are pretty bad, but they're not FBI top 10 most wanted bad, or so I would think.

    [–] After Parkland, everything is different: NRA's in decline and gun control is possible iprocrastina 0 points ago in politics

    Nice copypasta, but your entire argument lies on the premise that mass shootings are acceptable events.

    [–] After Parkland, everything is different: NRA's in decline and gun control is possible iprocrastina -4 points ago in politics

    Ok, so let's do nothing about the fact that mass shootings are now occuring multiple times a year, and not just in schools but in random public places like concerts and waffle houses.

    I used to be all for the second amendment, but it's become very clear we need to ban weapons that enable massacres. The desire to have an assault rifle because it's cool and makes you feel like a bad ass is a stupid reason to ignore these shootings.

    [–] ‘Fox & Friends’ tells Americans it’s their fault their tax returns are smaller this year iprocrastina 10 points ago in politics

    They think that if they do or think something then everyone else must do it too. It explains a lot about their behavior. For example, the people who think homosexuality is a choice and immoral most likely wrestle with strong homosexual urges themselves and assume that everyone else does too but just suppresses it like they do.

    [–] Almost as many people in Japan view the U.S. as a “major threat” as those who view an increasingly antagonistic China as a significant global concern, a new poll has found. iprocrastina -1 points ago in worldnews

    No, Trump lost the popular vote by over 3 million votes. Unfortunately, US presidential elections use the electoral college which ignores the popular vote and instead gives votes based on which states you win. Without going into too much detail, it's more than possible for a candidate that lost in a landslide to nonetheless be elected, which is exactly what happened with Trump.

    As for impeachment, most of the US does want to impeach and has for quite some time. The problem is that in order to oust him, both chambers of congress have to vote to do that, and that's not going to happen because the Republican party controls one of them and controlled the other up until last month. Since the Republican party is blatantly corrupt and puts party above country every single time, they will never, ever vote to remove a Republican politician, especially not their president.

    The situation is far more complicated than you realize.

    [–] Men who have been raped by or pressured/ tricked into unwanted sex by a woman. What's your story? iprocrastina 45 points ago in AskReddit

    I think that's because women's stories are the norm and easily found. You can find no shortage of interviews, books, documentaries, and movie scenes about it. There's an entire social media movement about sharing stories. It's literally everywhere.

    Meanwhile there's not much out there about male rape, especially female-on-male rape. A lot of people can't even imagine it, because it's so far outside the usual narrative. So on a forum like this, where people like to ask questions with interesting answers, it's not surprising people want to hear about female-on-male rape.

    [–] How common is it for people to be rude to servers? Men or Women. iprocrastina 15 points ago in AskMen

    I used to work in a restaurant that got a lot of well off people. A lot of people would just ignore you refilling drinks, taking empty plates away, etc. and not even say thanks or anything.

    As for going out of their way to be rude though, that was rare, but still happened several times I was there. Usually it was the old people with an inflated sense of self-importance. They'd act like they were better and smarter. For example, one couple asked me about renovations going on at another store in the strip mall. I, of course, knew nothing about that and they rolled their eyes at me like I was an idiot. Funny part was, I was just moonlighting there to get extra cash to pay off medical bills; my main job was being a neuroscientist.

    [–] Mom who seduced teen sentenced to 1 year in jail; DA calls sentence double standard iprocrastina 3 points ago in news

    No, sexual assault does not require physical assault. The DOJ definition is “any type of sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the explicit consent of the recipient.”

    Since minors cannot consent this was sexual assault.

    [–] Insects could vanish within a century at current rate of decline, says global review iprocrastina 139 points ago in science

    It wouldn't be removing just one part of the food chain, it would be removing the entire base of it. Anything that isn't a herbivore either eats insects or eats things that eat insects. Insects also keep plant growth in check, and pollinate.

    Losing insects would result in a more or less complete collapse of the animal kingdom and wipe out all flowering plant species.

    [–] Flight attendants, what's the worst situation you've ever witnessed whilst on a plane? iprocrastina 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Only time I was on a plane where everyone clapped after landing was when the plane had to make an emergency landing due to mechanical problems.

    [–] Sean and Seth give a shout out to Boltons on Hot Ones iprocrastina 3 points ago in nashville

    I did mild at Bolton's and it on par with Prince's hot. I was dying but damn that food is good.

    [–] What's the oldest man-made object you touched with your hand? iprocrastina 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Found a stone hand axe at a river. No idea how old, but unless some guy has a hobby of making hand axes and just dumped one in a river, it's got to be the oldest thing I've touched.

    [–] Fox News host defends Trump's 'executive time' which he spends tweeting and watching TV: 'It sounds a lot like work' iprocrastina 1 points ago in politics

    Yes, watching news to stay informed is productive for a president. It's not like the president has the full resources of the world's most advanced and capable intelligence agencies at his disposal to give him expert analysis of situations that reporters aren't even aware exist.

    [–] Groundhog Day: Punxsutawney Phil doesn't see his shadow, predicts an early spring iprocrastina 4 points ago in news

    Actually Groundhog Day is celebrated in Canada too, and the whole thing is an adaptation of a German superstition that claims badgers are the ones who predict the weather based on their shadows.

    [–] What dire warning from your parents turned out to be bullshit? iprocrastina 26 points ago in AskReddit

    That if I took a shower or used a faucet or used any plugged in electronics during a thunderstorm there was a real risk of getting electrocuted by lightning.

    Found out at 30 that's a myth and it's more or less completely safe.

    [–] The tables are beginning to turn! iprocrastina 1 points ago in gaming

    What will happen is that companies will scrap the lootbox system for versions of games released in those countries. Probably by replacing them with digital stores where you just simply buy the stuff instead instead of pouring an endless amount into lootboxes hoping this is the one that gives you the skin you want.

    If it becomes outlawed enough then lootboxes will simply disappear replaced with those stores.

    [–] The tables are beginning to turn! iprocrastina 1 points ago in gaming

    I don't think it's a slippery slope. There's a clearly defined legal reason here. Lootboxes are gambling. Gambling is heavily regulated in most places. You definitely can't allow minors to gamble, because that's illegal. These laws are already on the books, the only thing that changed is that governments finally took notice and called it out for what it is.

    You're worried about censorship, but this isn't censorship.

    [–] SC police, doctors fighting medical marijuana; AG calls it US's 'most dangerous drug' iprocrastina 2 points ago in news

    Maybe the most dangerous drug for opioid manufacturers' profits.

    Opioids: - expensive - extremely addictive - easy to OD; just touching some opioids (eg fentanyl) can kill you - intense, agonizing withdrawal

    Weed: - cheap (at least in legal states) - low addictive potential, and even then its only psychological - impossible to OD on - worst effect of withdrawal is irritability, assuming you have any symptoms at all
