    [–] Redditor offers truest definition of fondant itwasonlythewind 8 points ago in bestof

    The great British bake off poopoos fondant and is really entertaining. The judges are fair as well.

    [–] Facebook confirms it records call history, stoking privacy furor itwasonlythewind 13 points ago in news

    This is why the Indian telemarketers who call me 10x a day are able to spoof area codes of cities I’ve only visited once. Maybe pointing out that telemarketers are being sold your “FB data” will get people angry.

    [–] Attorney General tells prosecutors to seek death penalty in drug cases itwasonlythewind 9 points ago in news

    Patients lie, especially ones seeking drugs. As a doctor you can’t deny a patient healthcare without a good reason. The doctors who are obvious pill mills get arrested. Remember: pharma lies to doctors too. So far, pharma is going way more unpunished and need some heat under their asses to make changes.

    [–] What were you surprised you ended up liking? itwasonlythewind 8 points ago in AskReddit

    If more girls dated “not their types” and gave them a chance I think the “all guys are assholes” thing would decrease dramatically.

    [–] Colorado bump stock ban fails in legislature itwasonlythewind 5 points ago in news

    Some people can’t live with the idea that killers exist. Especially ones they can’t explain away easily. Some people call them serial killers, gangsters, soldiers, or whatever type they may be but they’re sure as shit out there and they’re not going anywhere if history is any example. Doesn’t make you powerless.. unless of course you’d like to ban that power. Some people get so so close to thinking logically but don’t play the tape through before getting worked up.

    [–] TIL L Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, had a son Quintin who was tasked to take over from the Church of Scientology. When Quintin came out as gay, he died of an ‘apparent suicide’ in 1976. itwasonlythewind 9 points ago in todayilearned

    When people first agreed upon the tax structures and expenditures of NPOs they didn’t have think a cult would set up shop and use its loopholes for land grabs. It allows them to do business with no taxes and they aren’t a charity. I honestly don’t give a fuck about the semantics of the situation and whoever does is an asshole, it’s very obvious they’re abusing the system, I’m sorry if I can’t encompass that perfectly, there’s plenty of documents and Wikipedia articles that do.

    If someone else isn’t paying taxes and you are literally everything that taxes pay for they are using for free. At the very least it puts them at a huge advantage over everyone else when it comes to things like buying up land and running tax free businesses.

    [–] Making a fishing lure itwasonlythewind 7 points ago in interestingasfuck

    When I was a teen I used to tie a fly to my spin rod because there was too much brush on the edge of our pond to fly fish properly without catching trees. I’d pop the drag and use what’s known as a roll cast in fly fishing. I couldn’t cast more than a few feet because the line obviously didn’t weigh enough. BUT it was really really fun because the water was shallow enough to see everything the fish did around my fly. Brim still ate it up, nothing big but the visual of watching them come out of hiding and doing that slow creep up to the fly kept me out there until sundown.

    [–] Defendant collapses in court after guilty veredict itwasonlythewind 109 points ago in videos

    I am not a doctor but it looks like a bad case of dramaqueenitis. Fortunately, she was able to be treated with a heavy dose of sitinprisonandrelaxis after self-medication with entitlementzac proved unsuccessful.

    [–] U.S. Ambassador Haley Tells U.N. Russia Responsible for Chemical Attack itwasonlythewind 180 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in worldnews

    Russia is trying to push every country’s boundaries to see what will happen, who will speak up, what they will do, whose got whose back. They create discord and it works really well for them. It also creates a shitstorm in the media so no one can focus on their own problems and instead has to focus on them. But they fucked up.

    [–] My housemates owe me 80$ in internet money that they won't pay. The utility bill came in and it was 55$ per person and I refused to pay. Now my landlord wants to report me even though I don't owe money technically. What do I do and what are my rights (In Canada, Ontario)? itwasonlythewind 11 points ago in legaladvice

    It sucks but you’re learning a lot of life lessons that many young people have to learn the hard way. Put a lock on your room door, put a screen saver on your laptop, and don’t involve landlords in domestic spats bc they can’t do anything and will evict you for withholding payments or at the very least refuse a renewal when the lease is up. In the future change the WiFi password and don’t shit where you eat, regardless of how others act.
