The solution is to stop using straws!
You don’t need to invent something new to help people drink. This is not a problem. People have been drinking liquids for thousands of years without straws. In what crazy universe did a straw become a necessity?
However, I now regret the many years I have not known of this sorcery!
I was on youtube and suddenly this popped up!! What the fuck??

I'm not using youtube any more. Screw thar!!!
EDIT: This happens to people in the EU and still I believe its complete BS! I'm not trusting them with my ID or even Credit card info! I get scam texts just from "trusting" companies with my phone number but they experience leaks... How bad could leaks about such sensitive info like this be? VERY BAD! Hence my attitude of SCREW THAR!!
I really hope that this time I’m not stupid enough to go back. I just feel so lonely and I’m weak when it comes to him.
My boyfriend and I live in Europe. I am a US citizen and registered democrat and he buys into every conspiracy known to man. He is quite ignorant about US politics so I attribute a lot of it to that (*Edit: which in itself is understandable. I don’t know all that much about the political intricacies of many foreign countries either). This morning I made the mistake of trying to explain to him that the Biden = pedo thing is Republican propaganda.
He started flipping out, calling me names, telling me to leave. The apartment we live in is in his name and he kicks me out often. I have a 2x2 m room that is my own that I can always go to, thankfully.
It was just awful and this time he really went too far. My maternal grandparents are conservative-ish Dutch people but they’re honestly waaay more liberal and tolerant than my bf. They’re also incredibly kind and generous. They frequently take ud grocery shopping and pay for everything. They give us stuff that they think we need. They’re always inclusive of my and my siblings/cousins’ partners. But anyway my grandma is pretty much in love with the Dutch Prime Minister and the king, Willem-Alexander. Which is stupid but whatever, boomers gonna boom. But of course my bf believes that her two favorite fellows are PEDOPHILES!!!!11
Today during his rant my bf said, “go to your stupid grandparents so you can praise the Dutch monarchy and pedo Biden with them. What are you doing with me? Go be where you belong and where you’re wanted.” Then came a storm of mainly gendered slurs and most notably a hilarious “btch-ass ngga” which almost had me rolling coming from a white euro-boy like him.*
I am so done. I so want to be done. I feel unheard, strawmanned, disrespected, used and PATHETIC. Let this please be the day I walk away for good even though it’s so fucking hard being on my own. Thanks for letting me vent.
I'm on TD and thinking of trying Etrade. TD decided to stop allowing trading for stocks I have already been investing in and I find it disgusting that my broker is trying to tell me what companies I can and can't invest in and then blatantly making policy choices that go directly against my investment. This really grind my gears today.
I'm open to suggestions. My main strategies are buying shares mid term swing trades and zero day options on SPX
I'm thinking about contacting class action attorney's.
Tonight I was reading this thread in /r/CoronavirusUK (please treat it as a read-only thread, there's a lot of vulnerable people in there). It probably the most "Fuck it! I'm done." thread I've seen on in the sub since this thing began, and it's a huge shift in tone from what you normally see there. It's actually quite distressing reading some of the accounts.
Was tonight's announcement a water-shed moment? Is this train actually leaving the station? If so, how do we help it along without derailing it? I feel like it would be very easy to drive people away by digging up old arguments.
