Wonka said before opening the door to the main room that you can eat “almost anything” in the room. Wonka never said “except the chocolate river; that’s off limits.” Augustus is in a room where people are eating teacups, people are eating giant mushrooms, etc. And he takes a drink from a chocolate river. It’s totally in line with the vibe of the room to drink from that river. How could he know not to do this unless told not to?!?
You have probably seen countless examples of what I am talking about. The top posts in many innocent subreddits (think comics and gaming in particular) are now scantily clad women who think 'cosplaying' is revealing as much as they possibly can. Their costumes are often painfully bad and bought in a cheap party store. 9 times out of 10, these women will have a NSFW Reddit profile including links to their OnlyFans/ManyVids. They are essentially using these more popular, innocent subreddits (which often are viewed by minors) to push their softcore pornography, knowing that some of the more pathetic adults and curious minors will click through to their profile and see their actual porn. All for monetary gain.
Stop upvoting these talentless leeches. They are making a mockery of those who genuinely put time and effort into their cosplaying as a legitimate hobby. You are utterly pathetic if you think these women are going to give you ANY meaningful attention for donating to them.
Edit: To those of you proclaiming that this isn't an unpopular opinion... try posting this criticism on those subreddits and watch as the armies of desperate simps downvote you into the abyss, and mods ban you from commenting.
As the terrified villagers felt the fire consuming them, they finally understood what happens when you try to burn a real witch.
I got married in New Orleans, my hometown. My parents paid for the beautiful venue and I really had to limit the guest list. The venue could only hold so many people.
Wedding was great, but at the reception my new sister in law came up to me and said some guest were acting odd. I go over to look and see 5 girls I didnt recognize.
I approach them and they run off. I notice how they drew graffiti all over my guest book. Stole food and would take drinks from my invited guest when they weren't looking.
They also used a table and made a huge mess. When I caught them they giggled and ran away. Look this is me and my husbands special day. Dont crash my wedding for free food and drinks. And on top of that ruin my guestbook.
I didn't let it get to me at the time, but looking back on pictures I see they photo bombed a lot and I cant even look at my guest book without seeing their stupid graffiti.
For instance in Sweden what side to put butter on your knäckebröd
Or to pronunce Kex with a soft or hard K (obviously a soft K)
Often when debating I hear it said that the reason someone is pro-life (among other reasons) is due to the ZEF being innocent. I take issue with this for a few reasons.
First of all, it has no moral agency so it can't be said to be innocent OR guilty since none of its actions are intentional nor is it sentient enough to care.
Second, its innocence is irrelevant. Someone being innocent (in the sense of being not culpable) is not an excuse to further violate someone's human rights. By using our body without our consent and doing damage to it it violates our human right to bodily autonomy and nothing, not even if you are dying otherwise, permits such a thing.

I am watching the OJ trials on Netflix. I’m 23, born in 1997. So I don’t know much about the public opinion, and I’m not American.
Obviously there’s some dramatizations in the show, but what was real is still very wild stuff.
One thing I saw is the insane support there was for him. It showed people protesting for him it made me angry.
It’s fair that the public didn’t understand dna at the time. But I hate how a gruesome murderer is still living his life.
I’m wondering if this was also the reality of it
Optional questions other than the ones above, which side were/are you on? And how the hell did he get away with it? Was the courtroom actually a circus like the show portrays it? And you can tell me any interesting fact I might not know
Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to explain it to me. For those who don’t understand it and don’t want to scroll for all the answers to many topics, here’s what I found (please feel free to correct me):
There was a case of police brutality against Rodney King, a black man, less than 2 years before the trials started
Police brutality and systemic racism was (and is) a huge topic that concerned the community (and the country in general)
Due to the above, this turned to a political/racism trial instead of a murder trial
Most people did believe OJ was guilty, but the black community didn’t want him charged as a message against police brutality. They wanted a win in the system
OJ was rich and able to afford the best of lawyers “dream team” who were so good and questioned everything from the prosecution side
The prosecution team mishandled situations, further losing the trust of the jury
A fluffy idea I came up with.
To everyone's surprise, and then annoyance/disgust, Harry begins dating Daphne Greengrass.
Daphne is not some brilliant Slytherin politician or some Ice Queen -- she's a sweet, naive girl (not suffering from any mental disorder or illness -- just innocent) that's the epitome of the "blonde, beautiful, and air-headed" stereotype (or, more crudely put the "all tits no brain" stereotype).
People are disgusted with Harry because they believe he's just dating her because she's hot and hoping to score, and they thought he was "better than that".
Truth is, Harry actually does like her -- they have meaningful conversations, share hobbies and interests, and just "click" on a personal level.
When an accident occurs and Daphne's beauty is (unknowingly at the time) temporarily tarnished, people expected him to dump her and just be shallow. However, he not only sticks by her, it actually ends up strengthening their relationship further. They're head over heels.
People's disgust and bemusement turn to intrigue and curiosity as their relationship persists and thrives over time, and it begins to dawn on people that their relationship is genuine and disgustingly... wholesome.
Yeah, they're baffled.
Betting pools begin about their marrying or eloping as soon as they turn seventeen -- mostly on the date to be set.
Edit: Apparently one of the pieces of lore I cited doesn't come out till week 2 of the Season. If you wanna avoid spoilers, I don't suggest you read further. Apologies.
I found this delightfully disturbing story in the new lore for Season of the Splicer, and I haven't seen anybody talking about it, so I figured I'd make a post.
TL;DR: Amanda Holliday accidentally got an innocent Eliksni lynched by teaching him curse words.
In the lore book Beneath the Endless Night, the entry III - Gifts from the Shore shows Saint-14 and Amanda Holliday receiving a shipment of gifts and supplies for the Eliksni Quarter that Crow stole from Spider. As Amanda is working through some shipping manifests, she has the following exchange with an Eliksni worker:
>Amanda turned back to the Eliksni. "That ain't exactly right, but you speak our language pretty well," she said.
>"Thank you," answered the Eliksni, clearly eager for conversation. "Do all Humans here serve Spiderkell?"
>"Serve Spider?" Amanda spat. "Spider's nothing but a—" and the five spirited words that followed were replete with hard consonants.
>The Eliksni froze, wary of her tone while not understanding her words.
>Amanda caught herself and took a breath. "…which is our way of saying he's a kind and generous individual," she said to the Eliksni, who nodded along with her.
Amanda cursed out the Spider, and, careful not to offend the Eliksni she was speaking with, told him that her cursing was a compliment. So, that Eliksni ended up thinking that the English words for "kind and generous" were a bunch of swear words. We catch up with this Eliksni in the lore entry for the auto rifle Chroma Rush:
>Finally, the Eliksni lowered the empty bowl. It breathed in as the blue mist resumed its thin spray. It looked toward Maurice. "I tasted all of it," it said with deep satisfaction. "I am very thankful."
>Maurice's grin turned into a tentative smile. "Glad you enjoyed it."
>The Eliksni stood and held out what looked like a small model of the Traveler. It glowed as it floated in the Eliksni's palm. "Compensation," it said.
>Maurice reached to take the treasure, then drew his hand back. "Fo
