    [–] Charles Mason is not a horror icon thewindandrain -47 points ago in horror

    Meh. It's a circlejerk buzzword thrown at anyone with an unpopular opinion and stopped being amusing years ago.

    [–] Charles Mason is not a horror icon thewindandrain 4 points ago in horror

    Too many people idolize and sympathize with the devil. Jeffery Dahmer lovers grind my gears most of all. /r/serialkillers is full of these freaks.

    [–] Filtering necessary? Is the sediment active or just dirt? thewindandrain 1 points ago in PoppyTea

    Considering the amount of different alkaloids in tea, youre almost certainly denaturing some goodies by simmering.

    [–] Filtering necessary? Is the sediment active or just dirt? thewindandrain 1 points ago in PoppyTea

    I feel like I just came from an opposite universe where sugar was not water soluble. My whole life I knew that as a fact, but it appears I am wrong. Mandela effect is creepy.

    [–] Courtroom shows hidden camera of how veteran died in nursing home thewindandrain 18 points ago in watchpeopledie

    I worked as a nurses aide in an Alzheimer's clinic. Quit because all my co-workers were calloused and neglectful to the patients. Seems it is such an emotionally exhausting job that the people who stay tend to be the ones with less empathy.

    A fight for politicians and rich people is not a fight for your countrymen. For all we know, he joined as a psychopath who wanted a chance of power to hurt others. Not saying we should assume that, but you can't assume he's a hero either. I have a lot of respect for law enforcement defending American cities, but I wouldn't automatically assume they are all good and noble.

    Ah yes, just following orders. A course of action guaranteed to absolve one of all responsibility and automatically make them a good person.

    [–] Courtroom shows hidden camera of how veteran died in nursing home thewindandrain -5 points ago in watchpeopledie

    Well technically veterans who joined voluntarily are closer to murderers than your average citizen. There's nothing inherently noble about someone who gets tricked into giving up their rights to fight a war for oil or foreign interests (your so-called good fight.) The military has been more homicidal than noble in their operations the past several decades. God does not endorse America's military, and everyone else isn't evil.

    [–] I'm 24. Is it worth saving for retirement? thewindandrain 2 points ago in collapse

    If your family owns land, then yes. Otherwise get used to poverty, and try to enjoy day to day life despite certain financial doom.

    Hey man just because they disagree with you doesn't mean they have down syndrome. God what a jerk.

    [–] Around a year ago I put airless tyres on my bike, a lot of people in the comments wanted my thoughts so here they are! thewindandrain -1 points ago in bicycling

    From what i can see, it is built for those who want a lightweight training tire. But with the size of thorns where i live, they don't provide anymore protection than the gp 4000.

    [–] North America, 46 states of almost equal population thewindandrain 2 points ago in imaginarymaps

    Ive been to 45 of these. I find it funny how people always group New Mexico and Arizona together despite them having completely opposite cultures and political climates. Likewise with Colorado and Wyoming.

    [–] Around a year ago I put airless tyres on my bike, a lot of people in the comments wanted my thoughts so here they are! thewindandrain 0 points ago in bicycling

    They are extremely lightweight. The belt of rubber isnt thick enough to provide any additional protection from thorns compared to racing tires from my experience.

    [–] Smoke shop owner sentenced to 90 years in prison for selling synthetic drugs thewindandrain 3 points ago in Lubbock

    I follow alerts of cannabis-related convictions in the southwest and almost every time a sentence like this is handed down, it's to a black man in Texas.

    [–] Smoke shop owner sentenced to 90 years in prison for selling synthetic drugs thewindandrain 7 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago) in Lubbock

    This is very sad, and that sentence was probably partially racially motivated. 90 years?! 3-5 would have sufficed. It's infuriating to see this inhumane draconian policy still exists within America. If lawmakers weren't so concerned about adults harmlessly using cannabis, people wouldn't keep getting hurt over poisons that are widely available to purchase online and still will be. Where Im from cannabis users aren't treated like murderers, so nobody would consider using toxic synthetics.. Either way, those customers were all adults responsible for their own decisions. The defendant never forced anything and was not violent. Then they turn and let rapists off easy with a slap on the wrist. What a sick justice system.

    [–] Messy execution with a rifle thewindandrain 7 points ago in watchpeopledie

    Californians cause cancer wherever they go.

    [–] Messy execution with a rifle thewindandrain 89 points ago in watchpeopledie

    I'd rather not prolong the process of dying. This sub makes it look quite unpleasant.
