In Refugee Arks, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear.

In Capaffedopia, the nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime.

In Archadon, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors.

A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person (pay attention, this one never fails - although the reverse conclusion is not always true).

Sunrise Trail wrote:Archadon. I read yesterday that Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch signalled that they would not reverse the supreme court’s landmark 1973 decision in Roe v Wade during confirmation hearings as well as in meetings with senators. In other words, they lied.

You say « I'm glad the NY law got overturned tbh, it was used to blatantly discriminate and prevent poor people and minorities from being able to protect themselves. » This makes no sense to me. It is beyond bonkers. Individuals in the US are in an arms race to « protect » themselves? The US has 23 times the rate of firearm homicide seen in Australia. Why not say nobody should carry guns? Get a decent police force. One that can be trusted not to shoot people they are trying to arrest for no reason.

The conservatives want the poor to be defenseless and kill each other.

That's why in Uvalde the police didn't go in to stop that school shooting. The police are not obligated to protect or intervene if they don't want to. Hell they're harassing a mother who ran in to get her kids out.

In Florida, I remember an abused wife and mother, who was also black, was carried a life sentence for using the "stand your ground law," correctly to stop her husband from coming in the house, but the state let George Zimmerman go for pursuing a kid, young teen Trevon Martin, to his house, shoot him in the back to death, while using that same law.

In reality, when these states, mostly Southern, have conceal carry, it is mostly to protect white people, whereas it purposely sets up to criminalize minorities.

Recreational Drug Use: First: Nhiu top 2%. Second: Eitherys top 9%. Third: Digital Influencer top 10% … Middle: Atlantio top 34% … Last, Capaffedopia bottom 0%

In Gryosfing, the mentally ill are given high powered automatic weapons for "catharsis therapy".

In StarfleetMedical, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary.

In Cognosco, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up.

In Pacific Northwest Territories, kindergartens are full of kids dressed as superheroes and princesses.

In Remusa, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more.

Wabashenka is known as the cheapskates of Philosophers.

Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.

In North Southum, high school bands practice by moonlight.

The children of Pacific Northwest Territories are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence.

In Miguva, artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common.

Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
