Obviously, I mean virtually nobody, as beer and wine have existed since the beginning of times and, just due to the sheer amount of people that have tried it, obviously someone did "naturally" like it.
But that's not the case for the vast vast majority of common mortals. I'm convinced that nobody legitimately ever drank their first beer and honestly thought: "Yeah, this consistency and taste is pretty good, I would rather drink more of this instead of some natural juice or tea".
They're all awful in varying degrees. Stuff like Vodka is just awfulness in liquid form, people mix it with other stuff to try and mask the horrible taste of alchol.
So, my thesis is: It's the amazing effect of historical peer pressure, some dudes learned to like this awful thing and managed to peer pressure generations upon generations of humans into pretending they like it just to fit with the other people that are also pretending to like it.
American fans can be told that I play on the best football team in the world? Of course you do. We have the most successes, so there is no reason not to say so. Am I one of the best footballers? I let people talk about things like that. I'm a normal person who just happens to play ball in front of a lot of people. My friends make me stay on the ground.
A record transfer to Real? I know there's no such thing in the United States, because the system is more exchange-based there, but when a club in Europe buys you for a lot of money, there's a lot of pressure because God knows how many millions have been paid for you. There is this pressure to present yourself in the right way. When my transfer came about, it was a little strange. I knew it was a world record then, but I never really thought about it. I left it and I just wanted to play ball. What happened happened happened, and I tried to show my best side on the pitch. You know, a lot of people said I had to prove my worth,
People should stop proposing on public, the pressure and stress experienced by people who were proposed to in public makes some people just say yes because they don't want to embarrass the other party.
Looking for some advice on how to approach this problem.
So I recently purchased my first gas powered pressure washer. I did not know how loud this thing was until I actually started using it 😳.
Well my next door neighbor isn’t so happy about it. I used it for about 30 minutes before she came out and asked me to stop using it because it was giving her a headache. Mind you this neighbor has always complained about everything we do even though we only do things outside every once in a while (maybe 4-5 times a year in our backyard). My neighbor is a pretty decent neighbor but she’s retired and she has always complained about noise. Also it’s not like I was using this pressure washer 6am in the morning. This was on a Sunday afternoon around 5pm.
I’m not sure if I should return this pressure washer and or if I should keep it. It’s pretty handy for washing my cars and I can use it for other things like cleaning my patio/siding.
What would you guys do?
One of the stupidest things I’ve seen recently is the politicalization of the situation that we’re in right now. I’ve seen so called preppers call other preppers sheep for wearing masks and other so called preppers calling those who don’t wear masks, uncaring and hateful. Both sides are being morons.
Here is my rule of thumb: I don’t trust anyone except my family and my prepper community.
I don’t trust that the government is giving me the right information. I don’t trust that people are wearing their masks correctly. I don’t even trust preppers on this forum or other forms for that matter to know what’s best for my family. Why the hell are there so many of you who are getting peer pressured into one side or another? Do your own stinking research and make your own decision. Then trust others to do the same. If you want to be overly cautious be overly cautious. If you don’t think this is a big deal, then don’t think it’s a big deal and go out in public.

Staffords combined passer rating under pressure of 83.8 is the third-best mark of any qualified NFL quarterback since 2016, trailing only Matt Ryan (87.9) and Alex Smith (86.3).
It’s 2am, I’m crying, and I just need to get some thing off my chest. Lord knows my parents won’t listen to me without condescending or just making me feel worse, so I guess I just need some Internet parents right now.
There are several things on my mind. The first has to do with school. Ever since it’s transitioned to being online, I’ve had such a hard time with keeping up. My parents get on me about it, but most days I find it hard to get out of bed to feed myself, let alone do school work. Even the word has started making me feel anxiety. I should be able to do it. I shouldn’t be a month behind. It’s almost over, I should just be able to push through, but I just... can’t. And I’m scared for that. My parents will take away my phone for the entire summer if I don’t get good marks. School has always been a huge priority for them. I mean, as a child, it was drilled into me that I’m going to university, I’ll have to pay for it (my family could never afford to put two kids through it, es... keep reading on reddit ➡
For me, it would definately be Adnan Januzaj. The Belgian winger was supposed to become the next Giggs/Ronaldo but just was left to be wasted on loans. The other person would be Ravel Morrison. Labled as the best player during his youth years in a team consisted of Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Micheal Keane. Sadly, he made wrong decisions and currently trying to salvage his career at Sheffield United (but the looks of it, he's also struggling.
Share your opinions! Would really love to hear them.
Say the word "yummy" one more time...
Let me start by saying that I know this is such a non-issue, especially in today’s climate but I’m having a bit of existential crisis, maybe it’s the lockdown.
I have just finished my degree at 29. I have been with my partner a few years and we would like to start a family, not right away, but I feel my clock is ticking, especially if want to give my child a sibling.
I have a job in the sector but I will need to work for a few years to get to where I want to be, and I chose it due to the high earning potential. But that means taking maternity leave when I hardly know what I am even doing yet, which will undoubtedly set me back in my career, before I have really even started. I also won’t reach the high salary that I spent the past years studying for.
So then I’m thinking wait a few years and get more set up in my career, but then I’m running the risk of fertility issues.
I don’t know, I just wanted to get this off my chest, my friends have been working for years so they don’t... keep reading on reddit ➡
