I hear all this "White culture". During the first world war most people were not "White". Irish- nope, Germans - nope, most people of German decent were bared from voting, and there were many more. Even my Dad growing up coming from Hungarian background was called a dirty slav and forced to speak only English in school. Yet, now society considers him White. What would happen if we all just rejected being identified as a color?8 AnswersOther - Cultures & Groups2 months ago
My friend and I have played RPL games for a long time. I am much more interested in developing an interesting character and want to enjoy the story aspect of the game. My friend however tries to find was to do the most damage and tries hard to gain advantage throughout the game.
I've made a Wizard who's wand is the handle of an axe. He spins it in a dance to cast spells. He also is an Elf who does not want to harm the environment and fight fights passively. Making his enemies incapacitated or charmed.
My friend plays an assassin Rouge. Your basic trope of parents being killed and now kills everything in his path. Every encounter he says; "It's evil kill it".
Now that were higher levels, He is giving me the gears for not learning the fire ball spell. To me that's like asking batman to use a gun.

A friend of many years is sliding into mental disorder and has accused me of sexual assault. Should I ever speak to her again?
I have not seen my friend for ten years. Another person phoned me to tell me that she is in a bad way with her schizophrenia and is in the Hospital. I live in a different city so I phoned her long distance. Right away she accuses me of hiding phones in her room and then hangs up. She phones me again to tell me that she is going to sue me for sexual assault and then hangs up.
She phones me yet again and leaves a message to apologize, saying she was sleep talking.
She was a good friend for many years when I was young and regarded her as my little sister. She often stayed at my place at night because I worked the graveyard shifts. Her quirky nature turned dangerous when she started fires in my apartment. She would burn pictures of herself because they felt it wasn't her. I took her to the hospital, and then she moved to a group home. Then I moved away. I would talk to her via e-mail or phone once a month, and then we just drifted
I can not see how I can ever talk to her, or even see her again. I've seen what happens to me when they get falsely accused of this, and it scared me.

I work as a Chef and recently I was asked to donate some food that was to be thrown out for bear bait for some photographers. Usually people wanting bear bait ask for the old deep fryer oil but we have a lot of donuts that we toss at the end of the day that I can set aside.
They wanted them, but if I give them chocolate donuts will that be a problem for the bears? I know dogs and wolves don't do well with chocolate but how about bears?

Atheists, what would it take for you to believe in something you can not see, but has and effect on others?
This is not a faith based question but a food safe handling question.
I work in a very large kitchen where are many immigrant workers and I am the minority but in charge of a section.
I am trying to get these people to change there habits and practice safe food handling. They leave raw food for hours on counters, thaw frozen pork loins in hot water, chopping meat and vegetables on the same cutting board. I tell them again and again. I get angry, and they just take it out of my sight or blame the next guy. It is so frustrating! I had a talk with several and I do understand why they are like this, but do not agree.
They do not believe in bacteria! Since they can not see bacteria, they never believe they get sick from it, and they don't see anyone being affected by it. If a customer ever complains they got sick, they all figure that person is just trying to get something for free. They just think it is me making work life hard on them because I am bossy white guy. They are truly are non believers of germs. There is no evidence I can show them that proves that what they are doing can make people sick. Maybe not them or there friends but maybe a small child or and elderly person.
So if you truly do not believe in something, is there anything that may get you to change your mind,or a least maybe just change your point of view?5 AnswersOther - Dining Out7 years ago
When I was growing up my public school was a couple blocks from another school that was for kids the were retarded. We were often told to treat these kids with respect and not be afraid of them. After school alot of us would mix and play 4 ssquare or hockey.
In Canada we have highway signs that say "the use of engine Retard brakes is prohibited"
In French it means late or held back. Words that have Latin or French origins are never considered bad.
When, why, and where did this word become Taboo? If it is only because it's been used to insult people by ignorant people then there are so many words that should be added to the (one letter)-word vocabulary. Like "Fat".

I bought a Venus fly trap and give it distilled water. It seems to catch fruit flies. I keep it in the window facing North.
The problem is the pant seems to flourish one week, almost growing out of the container. The next week it withers. The traps turn black. The next week it flourishes. What is getting it stressed?
The container is small. How much space does it need. Can I feed it anything? Fish food?

I love my girl friend but there is an issue brewing. She wears these gorgeous stockings to bed but when I come in she tells me I have to take off my socks.
Her stockings or leggings are nice, some have nice art work on them like peacocks and cranes on them. She says she paid quite a bit for them in Italy and Egypt. She looks real good in them too.
When I come in she tells me to take mine off though! Mine are quite nifty though. I like the fact they are brown so they never look dirty and they have nice green diamonds on the side. They have a little man swinging a golf club. I may not of gotten mine in some foreign land but I must of paid a fare chunk of change because they came in a big box from Costco, a couple of years back.
Please help, I am a tall guy and my feet get cold cause they stick out. She is calling me a farmer and is worried that I am going to wear my boots to bed (how she figured that you only the devil knows)

I was listening to my Daughters music and I noticed that a lot of Nicki's music is seems to be calling out some one that in her songs she refers to as simply "You"
When Alanis Morissette said "you" in the song "you otta know" she was directing her anger at Dave Coulier. Stevie Nixs directed her songs at Lindsey Buckingham, or so that what I've been told.
