    [–] Car battery died in the middle of an intersection, everyone drove by and this man stopped, tied rope to my truck and towed me to the nearest battery plus a mile away (car was in neutral, completely dead) zombychicken 7 points ago in pics

    The issue is that some posts on this subreddit are actually amazing pictures, while some are this Facebook bullshit. If a sub is meant for cool pictures, it should only have cool pictures. This may be a cool story, but it is not a cool picture. It should be in a different sub.

    [–] CMV: Pestering someone to drink alcohol is morally reprehensible. zombychicken 1 points ago in changemyview

    I think the best way to address your argument is to address your claim that alcohol has “zero” benefit, because if alcohol truly had no benefits, people wouldn’t drink it. I generally don’t drink because, for me, the costs largely outweigh the benefits, but to pretend there are no benefits is simply false. For me (and most people) alcohol, in moderate doses, has the effect of making me temporarily happier, more social, and less anxious. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your view), I can’t sleep and get extreme hangovers, even if I’ve only had 2-3 drinks the night before, which basically ruins the following day. However, I know that not everyone reacts this badly to alcohol. Some people can get completely plastered one night and be totally fine and productive the next day. For them, it would seem that the costs of drinking are fairly minimal, and if they don’t fully realize the negative effects that drinking can have on some people, they might not see a problem with encouraging others to drink. In their view, they are attempting to spread low-cost happiness to others. Is this really morally reprehensible?

    Imagine you discovered a restaurant that serves the best burger in the world, but unfortunately violates several health codes to create this burger. Perhaps you have a gut of steel, and no matter how many of these burgers you eat, you suffer no drawbacks, but people with weaker digestive systems simply can’t handle the unhealthy, unsanitary, albeit amazing burger. But since you don’t exactly discuss the quality of your shits at length with even your closest friends, you aren’t aware of the extent of the trouble that comes along with these amazing burgers that you can handle fine. You simply want everyone else to enjoy the burgers in the way that you do, so you tell all your friends about it and actively encourage them to eat these amazing burgers. You’ve never personally experienced any problems from eating them, so why would other people have problems? You just see the burger joint as a factory of happiness, and you can’t see why anyone else would not want free joy. Even if you need to pester other people, you believe this to be a necessary evil that will ultimately make them happier. Is this really morally wrong?

    Again, I’m not really an advocate for drinking, but I can understand why others would want to encourage others to drink. It’s simply a matter of not knowing the extent of the problems drinking causes for other people, not malevolence.

    [–] Americans you see in a European hostel starter pack zombychicken 1 points ago in starterpacks

    I legit know a guy like that who got stranded in Italy because all of his stuff got stolen. I think he finally got back by working on a random farm until he had enough money for a plane ticket.

    I love being a centrist because it means I get to be called both a Commie Liberal and an alt-right Nazi depending on who I’m talking with.

    How can you be racist against a writing system

    [–] Rule #1: Don’t underestimate your audience. zombychicken 446 points ago in comedynecromancy

    Tbh I think the original was more clear. Didn’t get that it was supposed to be captcha until I saw it.

    [–] RIP to a real one zombychicken 0 points ago in BlackPeopleTwitter

    People here are acting like Obama was personally gunning down millions in the streets. Why don’t people blame the terrorists who purposefully hide among civilians so that innocents necessarily have to die? Maybe it’s worth killing 10 innocent people so that 10,000 can live? Then again, I don’t know shit, maybe everyone involved in the decision making is a heartless cunt. But it’s definitely not black or white.

    [–] Does FL studio ever go on sale? zombychicken 1 points ago in FL_Studio

    Wondering the same thing. Funny how we both stumbled on this old thread at the same time lol

    [–] What's up with Netflix cancelling all of its Marvel shows, and how is Disney involved? zombychicken 7 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    Yeah, but everyone hates it, and EA would definitely have wayyyyy more sales if all their games were on steam. Referring back to the streaming example though, it does seem like it could work for Disney since streaming services don’t exactly double as social networks like Steam and Origin do.

    Well, the fedora was invented for a reason.

    [–] Older mall santas, how has what kids ask for changed over the years? zombychicken 4 points ago in AskReddit

    I don’t get how parents grow up watching shitty spoiled children in every kids movie and cartoon and fail to recognize and shut down that shitty behavior in their own kids. Like if I feel like it’s pretty easy to not have your kid act Dudly Dursley or Eric Cartman.

    [–] Pornsites be like zombychicken 1 points ago in dankmemes

    I remember reading on here that it’s because most people don’t pay attention at all the the incest part, but people who do really pay attention to the incest part, so they might as well kill two birds with one stone.

    I would send this to my mom but then she would just yell at me

    [–] Older mall santas, how has what kids ask for changed over the years? zombychicken 2 points ago in AskReddit

    My dad got me a Red Ryder BB gun when I turned 10 and my mom promptly yelled at him for it. Still have it (and my eyes) though.
