    [–] AITA for subjecting my boyfriend to my nakedess? scmrph 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    NTA but this whole thread has is making me realize how incredibly depressing life as a single person is :(

    [–] AITA for expecting my partner to be ready when I pick her up somewhere? scmrph 4 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    Dude I had this problem too and my girlfriend worked in downtown of major city. I couldn't even just park and wait, had to waste gas doing a loop in heavy traffic almost 30 min. out of my way every Friday. I was apparently the asshole though because I wanted her to take the subway to meet me at a stop outside the city.

    [–] 0 - 2 vs the tables. scmrph 17 points ago in IdiotsFightingThings

    In his mind, he does. That's the truth of conservative America, their feelings are the only thing that is right everyone else is either stupid or a liar. I used to say just the far right but I've watched the whole damn party drink the koolaid.

    [–] when China demands names of airline's employees who protested, CEO lists only himself scmrph 1 points ago in UpliftingNews

    Also unfortunately any company that would like to do business in China won't be able to risk hiring him.

    [–] LPT: If you bought a gun for self-defense as a reaction to recent shootings/in general, make sure you train with it, and do enough target shooting that you're confident in it's operation. scmrph -1 points ago in LifeProTips

    Bullshit, the largest news network in the United States is rabidly pro-gun and yet idiots like you keep popping up to talk about how the news isn't 24/7 singing the praises of gun owners. Because your news program told you so over and over again until you believed it.

    [–] LPT: If you bought a gun for self-defense as a reaction to recent shootings/in general, make sure you train with it, and do enough target shooting that you're confident in it's operation. scmrph 3 points ago in LifeProTips

    Which as far as I'm concerned is a totally fair a reasonable reaction on the part of the cop. There's a reason they wear uniforms. My fear is these gun activists are going to arm enough people we are going to start getting shootouts even when there was no active shooter. Some car backfires and 2 wannabe heroes draw guns then go looking for the shooter who never was.

    [–] Police officer filmed yelling at mother for leaving children in hot car scmrph 2 points ago in videos

    Not much in bigger cities or areas with generally high populations. In smaller towns & rural areas, oh yeah.

    [–] John Stewart petting one of the rescue pigs on the animal sanctuary he runs with his wife scmrph 43 points ago * (lasted edited 17 days ago) in aww

    I honestly don't really like him. Not because of the comparison with JS (By that mark John Oliver, Stephen Colbert, Wyatt Cynac, even Rob Corddry and now possibly Ronny Chieng were/are different from Jon but managed to stand out on their own) , it's hard to pin down exactly why but he just doesn't feel genuine. Like I'm very aware that he is a (frankly somewhat mediocre) comedian with a political agenda.

    Not to say Jon didn't have one, he just seemed more honest. The kind of person who will argue with conviction but can recognize when he is wrong or being blinded by his own emotions.

    [–] Whoever thought of making Swim Suits convinced the whole world that it’s ok to wear your undergarments outside as long as there is water. scmrph 25 points ago in Showerthoughts

    Women's swimsuits, and that's pretty recent/it took a really long time to get there. Men's swimsuits are basically just shorts. The only thing special about them now is the material, and maybe the netting inside. But dudes have been swimming in shorts since the dawn of shorts.

    [–] AITA for refusing to adopt my wife’s two kids after discovering who the real father is? scmrph 170 points ago * (lasted edited 19 days ago) in AmItheAsshole

    I suspect this may be a creative writing exercise inspired by recent successful posts involving very similar situations. Explains the odd tone, the 'word mix-ups' despite otherwise very good English, the kids never mentioning their very much alive dad to new dad, and the gaping holes in wife's plan (adopting while a parent is alive, in prison or no is not a simple process that can be hidden from dad)

    [–] How do I (24f) gently let down men I’ve gone on dates with? scmrph 2 points ago * (lasted edited 20 days ago) in relationship_advice

    Welp, since all the advice on here seems to be the same old 'just tell him there's no chemistry', I'll give my take on that line. If it's only been one or two dates, honestly I'd rather be ghosted. It's effectively the same thing without the slightly patronizing platitude.

    3+ dates it becomes a fair reason to end it, but before that you know me about as well as that co-worker who I keep bumping into in the carpark. The takeaway is you don't want to see me again either because you don't find me attractive or because something I did raised a red flag, and in either of those cases if you aren't willing to offer some parting advice then just go for the ghost. I get that some guys don't take constructive criticism well, but they are the same ones who will keep pushing after the no chemistry line anyway and all you can really do is block & ignore them.

    Better to offer honest feedback than give a meaningless platitude. Just my 2 cents on it anyway.

    [–] Mantra Change..........Trying is Not Doing! scmrph 1 points ago in stopdrinking

    Im not sure I agree trying is failing, but i think if my plan is to try, then im really just building a cushion so I can fail.

    [–] I know I should stop, but I don't really want to scmrph 5 points ago in stopdrinking

    I'm sorry anybody who reads this, I think I'm just in a funk for now. I'm gunna leave this post up to remind myself later though (mods remove it if you think it could be bad for someone else to see). Let's hope things will look better tomorrow.

    [–] I know I should stop, but I don't really want to scmrph 2 points ago * (lasted edited 20 days ago) in stopdrinking

    That's part of it, don't really know. I guess just because places like this exist and there's all these feelgood messages about people who did but in a context that doesn't really apply to me. Or i feel like if I can just quit this one thing everything will get better, but then it doesn't (or worse it does for a bit then my back snaps or my knees give out or some other random act of bs) and I just go back to the only thing that really helped
