Have you ever stopped frequenting a favorite place when people that also go there become familiar with you, and are even happy to see you?

I have - and quite a bit, actually.

I can't really think of a place I frequent in real life besides big corporate chain stores for groceries. They never recognize you and I never recognize any of them. Too much turn over rate and customers.

I get almost everything else online, and for stuff like cafes and restaurants, I usually try out a different place every single time. Only so much time to live, after all, why not try something new whenever you can?

Would be nice to have a 'favorite place you can chill out with employees and owners' though.

What movies do you disagree with the morals or the main characters?

Like jurassic park 2: GOOD GOD jurassic park 2. The heroes are basically murderous eco-terrorists who are SAVED by the "villains" at one point, with zero ill intent on the villains part besides "They're humans and we don't leave other humans to die", then proceed to steal the villain's bullets, which is basically attempted murder on dinosaur island.

Invasion of the Democratic Monarchy of Ladies Skeksis (Graham) 41892608[View]

Hi /oat/ having a bit of a nature moment I wanted to share with you. Nature general if you want to share anything back!

Been raining a fair bit here in florida over the last week or so, following a rather long dry spell. I walked into my room tonight and was shocked to see what I'm pretty sure is Camponotus floridanus commonly known as 'carpenter ants' in florida, marching out of the window, across the ceiling, and down into of all things my dirty laundry.

I don't know what they are doing, perhaps just drying off from the rain? I am certain I don't have any food in there. By my best estimate there are 35-50 of them in my dirty laundry/closet area now, a couple marching in or out at any given time. No pupae spotted. Not carrying anything either way. Don't seem interested in perimeter patrol that much either.

After verbally griping at their decision and freaking out for a moment I decided we're just going to ride with it for a bit and I'd poke at the laundry now and then to remind them this aint the place to live. As long as they don't start bringing their babies in here I think theres a good chance they will just move along once the rain stops. If not I'll try to drive them out with bright lights citrus oil or cinnamon or something :/

Anyone good at ants? These ones are pretty docile but they're also freaking huge at 0.8 in each or so. You don't want to piss the majors off they are just about a full inch and the biggest segment on their bodies are their heads, I can spot them from my desk 6 ft away. I'm hoping they aren't trying to move the nest right now >_> I suspect they'd be much more interested in locking down the whole room if they did though.

I pretty much slept and lived with these things when I lived in a house in the middle of a forest/mountains. Never got bitten or anything. I am very fascinated by ants.

They raided the pantry every now and then and that was annoying, but they are 100% harmless unless you are allergic to whatever shit they secrete when biting you. Which shouldn't really happen unless it's an aggressive species.

Carpenter ants are not aggressive. They are huge by ant standards, but they do fuck all. No venom or anything like that. You can stomp, play with them, or do whatever, though I would hope you show them some sympathy.

They can however cause structural damage to wooden stuff, hence the name.

those people Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41893057[View]

So I was talking with someone today about making friends n shit, and we got on the subject of a certain kind of people that irks both of us and deters friendships.

Basically people who are kind of "fake" or superficial, but not in the materialistic kind of way, more in the opinionated kind of way.

People who's opinions aren't genuine, or who's opinions aren't even really their's. Like, people who you know are just saying things because they heard it on TV or somewhere else, but the point is they're proclaiming they believe things, or are experts on things when they actually know very little about it.

People who talk from shallow observation rather than engagement or experience. And I'm not trying to say it's wrong to not know/understand things--nobody knows everything about everything, in fact nobody knows everything about ANYTHING--but I just hate when people pretend they do, or give the implication that they do.

Like, I don't participate in certain kinds of discussions because I know that I don't know anything about the subject, and I would probably embarrass myself if I tried to speak on it. But I can admit that. Some people can't.

I don't have a problem with people not knowing things, it's just like, if you don't have a real interest in something, if you haven't explored it in depth (at least to an extent that you have knowledge about it), then don't try to act like you're a big fan or something. This especially gets to me with music, but people being dumb about music triggers me easily.

I guess what it comes down to is, don't be a basic bitch. If you want to feel smart about something, actually get into it, don't just repeat what other people say. Form your own opinions. Learn enough about something that you can have a dialogue about it and offer something different, instead of just something you read online somewhere.

People who can only reiterate what they have heard from other people are boring. I want to discuss interesting things with people who can show me new perspectives that I may not have considered before, maybe even change my mind completely.

It never really bothered me in particular but I can fully understand it

It only gets annoying to me when they act like they know about something more than me despite me spending so much time understanding and learning about it; when I know de facto they haven't read a damn thing into it.

I'm kind of on the fence about this one. On the one hand, it's frustrating when people try to speak with authority on a subject they know almost nothing about, especially when they actively refuse to actually learn more and engage with the subject. On the other hand, people can have a wide range of interests, and the opportunity cost of spending time and energy engaging more with one of those interests is that time and energy isn't spent engaging with other interests. I don't think people should be barred from or feel uncomfortable discussing things they might be less knowledgeable about; that can be a valuable tool for them to engage with and learn more about that subject. It's important to be self-aware and have humility, but I don't think anyone should let "imposter syndrome" prevent them from taking an opportunity to learn more about a subject they have genuine interest in by discussing it with more knowledgeable or experienced people. Even if you're an expert in something, there's probably someone out there who's more of an expert and might catch you saying something that indicates you haven't fully explored the subject at hand, and that's totally okay -- as long as you're not pretending to be the smartest person in the room.

this still gives me goosebumps

although it's one of those scenes where you really have to be a fan of the show already for context because it is basically the culmination of all these other things about an important character

and this scene is the moment where everything falls into place and you're like "oh shit"

Flag Day.

Pet peeve of mine is Irish-themed establishments that put the Tricolour under the Stars and Stripes on the same pole (Flaherty's Bowling in Arden Hills). Highly disrespectful to put national flags at different heights in peacetime.

Also, people who still believe the myth that a US flag that touches the ground is ruined and must be immediately burned. Old, worn out flags are respectfully retired by burning, and the flag isn't supposed to be allowed to touch the ground, but if it does, it isn't somehow contaminated.

For the same reason you hang your flag over captured enemy territory - expression of ownership.

It's also an assertion of national superiority over others.

The uppermost flag indicates ownership, command, control etc. The lower flag simply indicates their presence. In the same way that if a king were visiting a lord's a castle the king's banner would fly above the lord's because the king has precedence over the lord.
