How am I supposed to handle this on my own? I'm 25, should be more than old enough to handle my own life, but I'm such an immature, sheltered, timid, lethargic person. Whether I should have still needed her to get by at this age or not, the fact is I did, and now she's gone. I don't understand what I'm supposed to do now. 25, no job, no house, no driver's license, no friends, living out of my gracious uncle's guest room until I finally finish school and get a job, but I'm so unreliable god knows how I'll ever hold one down. Or even get one without any connections. How can I proceed? More
Does the double jeopardy clause protect officials from being impeached on charges they've already been indicted on, or does it not count for some reason, like the fact that impeachments and indictments are tried before different courts?
+29Words cannot describe the despair of getting a call or a text, excitedly grabbing your phone thinking she might have finally gotten back to you, and then realizing that's impossible because she's dead. amirite?
+14The far right and the moderate left believe basically the same thing: that there's a corporate shadow government which now controls the media, the government, and the "free" market, and which, to achieve that control, has secretly perpetrated every socioeconomic injustice in the history of our country, and to some extent even farther back. The core difference is that the far right wants to call that corporate shadow government "the jews," wants to blame EVERY jewish person for its existence, and wants to blame the victims of those past injustices for being unconsenting coconspirators. amirite?

+27People who think political correctness infringes on their freedom of speech don't understand property rights. You have the right to say what you please, but not the right to say it where you please, because you don't even have the right to be where you please. If you want to rant about representational minorities all day, please feel free to go do it at a public park. Just because you're free to be rude doesn't mean privately owned businesses are under any obligation to provide a platform for that freedom. In this sense, it seems it's the left's turn to complain about trespassers.
+22I don't care what an upstanding citizen you think you are. I'm the one who has to drive this old piece of trash, and I will not tolerate upstanding, downstanding, grandstanding, brandstanding, bystanding, backstanding, forthstanding, withstanding, withoutstanding, outstanding, instanding, notwithstanding, or any old Texan standoffs! Either sit down and shut up, or get out!! Or so help me I will turn this tiny clown car right around and we're going to the drug store to pick up 600cc of nyquil. amirite?
+32If the criminal justice system followed Danganronpa rules, there'd be no defendant, no complainant, no defense team, no prosecutor, just the judge and the jury, and the jury would consist entirely of all known witnesses. By the end of the trial, the jury would convict one of its own jurors. An acquittal would be unusual, and would indicate either a failure to subpoena the true guilty party, or a mistake in assuming a crime was committed in the first place. This would be a terrible system, so it's a good thing Danganronpa is nothing but fiction. amirite?
+24Most calls for communism or other kinds of socialism in the US are owed to discontentment with the observation that the free market has been commandeered for the private interests of the select few. However, if we were to adopt communism, the same thing would happen to the means of distribution very shortly. Therefore, perhaps the solution to economic inequality and corruption is to periodically switch economic systems, the way people switch passwords. That way, corporate and government entities alike will have no time to work out ways to abuse the system before it abruptly swaps out on them. amirite?
+29The issue of who politics concern has come to overshadow the issue of what politics concern. This sensationalist treatment of politics in our modern culture is symptomatic of a broken electoral system. It's quite sad that there's no practical and peaceful means to take our governance into our own hands, elevate political platforms themselves above the private interests of the politicians who leverage them, and dispel the insidious perpetual illusion that the public interest is fractured into mutually exclusive "parties." If there were any such means, it would be a true path to world peace. amirite?
How do you feel about the fact that the answers to this poll are all heavily biased to discourage you from giving a positive response?
9% great! i hate free thought, free thinkers who don't like polls like this should all burn 32% it sucks, i feel pressured into giving you the answer you want (so i did... lol) 9% fantastic, i'm too stupid to come up with my own opinions so i'm glad i have these colorful buttons here to tell me what to think 0% it's nice to see someone who agrees with me has created a nice echo chamber where everyone else has to agree as well 3% wow, rude. i also make polls like this and i feel wrongly called out. this is a website for expressing opinions, so there's nothing wrong with me using the poll feature in this way. i'll prove it by picking the only positive response that isn't facetious. 47% other

+28Unpopular opinion: Lawyer isn't a dishonest profession. A lawyer's responsibility is not to state their opinion on guilt or innocence, but to state their opinion on what one must believe to justify believing guilt or innocence. This, in turn, is grounded in the idea that every crime deserves justice and every defendant deserves a fair defense. So, for example, the defense could believe their client is guilty, yet defend their client in court in good conscience, because they aren't saying they think their client is innocent, just that they see a way someone could reasonably think that, amirite?
+28Love is, for the most part, a proactive choice. Almost everyone has inner beauty on some level, in the same way someone you love is beautiful to you, so which person actually winds up being as beautiful to you as they are inside mostly depends on who you choose to spend enough time with to discover that beauty. In that regard, there's no right or wrong answer. Whoever you choose to love is an okay person to love, and if you decide to stop loving them, or the other way around, that's rough, but it's still also okay. It's even okay not to choose anyone. The same reasoning applies to friendship.
+14While admittedly effective at allowing arbitrarily large storage devices, PMIO storage creates a bottleneck. This bottleneck could be resolved by regressing to bank-partitioned MMIO storage, as was the practice with ROM cartridges. Additionally, the recent advent of NVRAM has opened up the possibility of writable MMIO storage, which was a challenge in the age of ROM cartridges. However, with the recent shift in conventional software development education toward high-level work, it's unlikely that drivers supporting NVRAM MMIO will ever be mainstreamed, and NVRAM will likely remain port-mapped.
+38People tend to have a stronger opinion of themselves than anyone else has of them. For as selfish as this may seem, it's healthy. However, it's not healthy for that opinion to be exclusively negative. You are either your own most vocal supporter or your own most vocal critic, or both. But if you're solely your own most vocal critic, there's something wrong. amirite? More
