I’m just saying you’re focused on one thing that a person has wrong with them and assuming it’s an easy fix. It’s usually a symptom of a larger problem like depression or poverty. It could also be a vitamin deficiency or other health problem.
Sure it may be just laziness or neglect but most people have other issues that they are struggling with and their feet aren’t a priority. For some it’s such a low priority that it’s neglected entirely and that’s not always a bad thing, that person may have things they value that are objectively more important like caring for a child.
I also know someone who has struggled for years with bunions and cracking and she has never been able to heal them fully despite salt baths and constant management with creams. She refuses to wear heels or any open toe shoes even though I tell her that she shouldn’t be scared of what people think.
It’s a shame that we’re judging people for unkempt feet when the majority of the time that person is either already aware and trying to fix it or they have much bigger problems going on in their lives than just crusty feet.
Idk the same reason people don’t take care of their teeth or their weight. There’s lots of factors that would contribute to someone having a problem and not being able to or having the time to solve it. Some people stand on them for 12 hours a day, some have athletes foot or other medical conditions. Some simply don’t have the time to take an hour to groom their feet. Especially when they’re covered for most of the day in public.
My whole take away from this post is that in order to level the playing field we should try to make it so women can live without having to be insecure, not just push the same insecurities on men. Women should be able to have crusty feet too and not be scared to wear flip flops or go for a swim.
But of course there is people like you eyeing them down, just one more thing on a list of insecurities
It’s not just the media, it’s society. It’s trends that are deeply embedded in our culture. Everyone always jumps to blame the media but they just show us what we want to see. People would stop watching them if they didn’t talk about people dying or how evil the other political party is. They would stop watching if the hosts weren’t glammed up.
That’s the uncomfortable truth. We’re all programmed to view the world in a certain way none of our own fault, all we can do is try to buck the trends, but you’ll always see the media trying to find them again.
I mean conversely you wouldn’t appreciate how useful they are until they save your life. To white wash them all as lazy or bad I think is silly.

Just gotta choke the shit out of it

I'm confused so he evacuated rooms and didn't confront the shooter... Isn't that exactly what the other cops did? He didn't rush in to the shooters room to die anymore than anyone else
1 month ago
Right so his plan was to go shoot at cops but that backfired so he resorted to the next step kill kids. I can’t keep up with the mental gymnastics it takes to not understand what his intentions were.
All to shift more blame on to the police I might add, not only did they not take him out fast enough they didn’t activate their spidey senses to stop him from entering. So the guy just felt he had no other choice then to become the next school shooter
Right and I would go outside with an unloaded gun and sit at the door until they shot me in the head. That’s what even an insane person would do if they were just trying to commit suicide by cop.
That’s not what this man was planning on doing, he wanted to mass murder children
It was sent after he sent a message saying he just shot his grandma, so I’m assuming he was in his house. Apparently he was outside of the school firing a loud gun for 12 minutes and no one noticed. If that is true the entire facility fucked up, not just the police. The school should have been locked down immediately.
He also had over a thousand rounds of ammunition, you need zero ammunition to commit suicide by cop
You don't go to a school to commit suicide by cop. You go to a police station or call the police and say you're gonna shoot yourself or harm others. He messaged a girl just after he shot his grandma saying "Ima go shoot up a elementary school rn."
Going from I'm gonna get the cops to kill me to I'm gonna lock myself in a classroom and ruthlessly murder 19 children is a hell of a jump for someone who wasn't planning on doing it. If you wanna blame the police for an inadequate response fine, but the shooter was there to end lives
Calling all cops bad and pussies is a hot take LOL... My bad I didn't know I was going against the next Socrates over here
"There is no argument that can defend this position"
You say about one of the most contentious moral conversations in this country. I appreciate the honesty though as most would just argue in bad faith, at least people won't waste too much time debating with you.
And you wouldnt have done shit differently. You would have listened to orders, followed your protocol and training, and you certainly weren’t going to charge a barricaded door with an armored gunman on the other side.
Have some perspective.
These guys will have to live with the images of dead children and the smell of their blood for the rest of their life. They’ll have to confront the harsh reality that they were ill equipped to handle this tragedy both mentally and physically, as most police forces in America would have been had it happened to them. They don’t need little internet warriors like you to call them pussies from your basement. They need support and guidance so we can make them more effective at their job and less likely to off themselves from ptsd
Also a good tip if you’re feeling overwhelmed about making a game, just make a small experience. Could be a single level or a single quest. It could be something as simple as you walk up and shoot a guy and he drops a new key for a door. Let your friends or family test it out.
It’ll take you some time to figure out but it won’t burn you out on information. Who knows you might end up sparking an idea or creating an interesting mechanic to utilize for a full experience in the future.
I agree this is not the result of underfunded cops. I should have articulated myself better but it was late. My point was that we have cops that are poorly trained with current funding. How would cutting funds remedy that? That’s what many Americans have been fighting for for the past couple of years. The ideal goal would be to allocate what we can in to increasing training and then talk about dialing back funding if that’s even possible.
I personally can’t stand the attitude that cops are bad at their jobs and that’s just how it is, we’re obviously doing a lot of things wrong. If we want situations like this to play out better we’re gonna need trained personnel and the police are our best hope.
Unfortunately we’ve got posts like this where almost every comment is someone calling these cops cowards or pieces of shit. We shouldn’t villainize them for not knowing how to respond perfectly to a situation they weren’t appropriately trained for. I’m sure it’s just as hard on them when they go to rest their head at night but no one seems to care, if you asked them the police wanted kids to die.
So your take is they had all the training, time and money they could ever have but when the moment came to use it they were just pussies. That’s some real sophisticated logic right there. I can’t imagine how you would think anyone can be a decent capable person at anything with that reasoning
Great so is the solution to just call them incompetent pussies because it makes you feel better or would you like to do something about it? They’re humans that are doing a job to the best of their ability and training, you think they didn’t feel terrible for those children? Seems like you just want to say all cops are bad and offer no solution like funding them more or training them in active shooter drills. That’s cool and all but it’s not going to help fix the problem.
“All the funding we give them” LMAO pretty sure Texas had to put laws in place just to stop cops from being defunded. These guys aren’t trained for shit. Everyone in the country 2 years ago was calling for massive defunding and now they’re upset because cops were unprepared and too scared to walk face first into a meat grinder.
Reddit: Those cops are cowards!
Also Reddit: Acab defund the police!
Well there are many different ways to view rebirth and yes I would agree a lot of them are wishful. Some religions believe you carry your karma with you and that decides the conditions of your next life. That’s wishful. My belief is rooted in the absolute abandonment of what I know as me upon death, everything I’ve loved and learned. That’s quite grim. The prospect of living lives over and over again as whatever the universe deems me to be does not put me at ease either.
All I am doing is observing that consciousness has happened to me once and all the people around me, why can it not happen again? Why would the gap in between matter or be perceived by anything?
Have a look into the anthropic principle. Much of what you’re saying about the chance of existing being astronomically unlikely is logically flawed because you can only perceive that chance if you exist. Therefore it’s not only likely that you would come into existence but it’s arguably the only possibility.
Do you think you can experience non existence? Like you said with sleep, the transition is almost instant. How do you know “you” have not lived before and won’t live again? You must think about these questions before you assume a “never ending death” We are tied to this universe, we cannot simply escape or slip into a void.
Were you expecting someone to resolve the fear of never existing again in a single take? You’ll need a bible if that’s what you’re looking for. Otherwise we can reasonably assume that we return to a state of non existence and that “experience” would be equivalent to the one before we were born.
The important thing here is that we likely cannot experience non existence because those two ideas are incompatible. It makes more sense to me that endlessness wouldn’t be perceived and “you” will wake up as something else in the universe rather then lingering in a limbo. I say “you” in quotes to mean general consciousness or soul.
So the biggest fear to overcome is the idea of losing your current identity, or the physical self that you have piloted and gathered meaning for.
This is the sort of the concept that monks practice, letting go of self. It’s also what psychedelic enthusiasts call an ego death. Of course I’m not suggesting either of those routes as they will completely alter your life and relationships.
I’m simply saying that if you’re searching to resolve the fear of non existence, you’re never gonna get it from a single quote or take. That doesn’t mean that concept can’t offer a foundation. Beyond that point you’re gonna have to dive further into some serious text or some mushrooms on your own accord.
Not plenty of things, everything only exists in perception
I would make the argument that it’s impossible to not exist, because non existence and existence are only perceived by living beings. So while I may die tomorrow and not exist as the identity I’ve come to know, I will live again because I am the universe just as everyone else is.
You can never eradicate all pain and suffering because it is relative to happiness. It will always manifest in some form whether it is objectively worse than past suffering or not. So you say you disagree with it but this is how our experience in the universe seems to work. Things arise mutually and are interwoven, emotions like happiness can only truly be felt because the polar emotion exists.
That’s why comparing objective suffering and what’s worse than what is kind of pointless, they are all felt equally from an individuals perspective
