As an amateur plumber - checking for leaks by hand feel is nearly impossible. I have to use a gray t shirt or something that will visually show moisture.
Yes that's why it's called unpopular OPINIONS
Im going to guess OP is from the US because it seem they are obsessed with perfect white teeth.
how exactly would it accelerate anything?
why would someone spend 15yrs working on a project when they only have exclusive rights to it for 5yrs?
how do you think they should handle things like trademarks, merch, logos
what do you think should happen if there are sequels planned?
Do you know how being silent works?
Exactly! It's why I want to teach it as a tool, not a last result. I want them to have healthy ways of handling situations like that rather then lying. Teaching about lying as a tool also helps teens not result to it as a way to rebel
Teenagers are good liars anyways. I never said that I'm teaching kids that it's okay to just lie. I'm saying that it is needed in certain situations and that there are better alternatives as well. A child should have many options to handle situations rather than just lie or don't lie
All books are just rearrangements of the dictionary
There used to be an unwritten contract between everyone certain behaviors were not tolerated. Self interest became paramount and that was the end of that
Most houses I go to have plenty of them laying around that don't get used. I see 99% of grocery shoppers showing up without bags and getting plastic ones. I'd be willing to be they have 10 or so between their basements, pantries, under the sink, etc. Most people just aren't that consistent with environmentally conscious behavior.,
This is my point, it's not inherently anymore safe or less safe, but our own perspective and realization that danger exists.
Not flat out wrong. You just disagree with that opinion.
The Beings of the Lonely and Forgotten
"In every universe there are beings which live amongst us, hidden from view, that can only be observed by stepping into the Lonely and Forgotten.
These beings sit by quietly observing, learning, and ever waiting, because they know someone will be along to visit them soon.
In fact... I'm sure you have met one of these beings at some point in your lifetime.
They would have appeared in those time which you felt most alone, for, you see, it is the task of these beings to guide us during these difficult times of our Lifes lessons.
Sometimes they do this by offering advice, encouragement, to listen, or to simply remind you that you are not alone.
Just as quickly and mysteriously as these beings appeared... they're gone; though, you don't even notice, as you're left focusing on the message that was given to you.
As time passes even the memory starts to fade like a dream. You will have even forgotten that you never got a chance to thank them...
... or maybe you had...
... what were we talking about again?"
There's a lot of dead people I am happy are dead and gone. We're not talking about Grandma who made you cookies every visit.
The day I was born my grandpappy gifted me a bad climbing rope. It was a weird gift and I kept it in it's original packaging but I've still got it.
