your phone turns down your brightness? what OS is this
Lol... Android brah
i do have android, and use it to 2% every day. but it never turns down my screen brightness?
it's a google phone so bare bones OS. is it cause i'm not using the battery saver?
Yeah, could be based on phone/OS. I only noticed the feature when I got my S7. My previous S5 did not have it.
Bro you're out here getting quoted in articles and shit:
Lol, that's nutty. Reminds me when I made a fairly popular comment, went out for lunch, and the dude sitting next to me quoted my comment verbatim. Makes me wonder why anyone would trust such an anonymous source.
I don't think you're using "nigh" correctly.
Shit. You're right. I'm being unclear. Always thought I saw nigh being used to signify an end, but a quick search in my word app shows that it only signifies something being near. I did not specify what it was that was near. I'll have to fix that. Thanks for pointing it out a mistake that I hope I won't make twice.
They promised it would feel better in the morning. But now it's the morning. Mom isn't coming back. How can it ever get better?
I like having my uncles and cousins around at the house. But that's all they keep saying. How come it doesn't feel any better?
Yesterday, people that I've never met had said those same words to me at the funeral home. How do they know what will make me feel better? I want my mom back.
Judge people by the most frustrating situations on the planet... nice
And the most depressing. Fuck man, no one likes rainy days
Edit - I'm wrong. Different strokes for different folks... And I'm sure some of y'all will call me crazier when I say I like snow
Yeah. It's an extremely normal and healthy amount of inflation per year and 133 years is just a long time.
People are just stupid and often don't know what the hell they're talking about yet feel the need to proclaim their opinions anyway.
So I shouldn't bet on becoming a billionaire soon?
Simply? Yes I think that’s fucked up. This isn’t a dick measuring contest for worst atrocity.
That's a shame you think I'm making this a dick measuring contest. Based on what I've been reading in this thread, many don't know of these, and similar stories so I'm just giving my take, sharing them. If someone wants to read more, than they could click the link I easily provided.
The only crime worse than the ones being perpetrated here, are to forgot the stories as a whole. For how can we improve ourselves and become great, if we choose to ignore the mistakes we made in the past?
If you didn’t want it to be a dick measuring contest, you wouldn’t have said:
(Paraphrasing here) “Oh you think that’s bad? Try THIS on for size”
Than maybe you shouldn't have stated that "This rivals, if not surpasses the Trail of Tears".
I didn't even try to compare any situation because every situation is different from one another. All I'm doing is sharing relevant stories that many are unaware of happening.
Lock him up
Won't help the situation. He's Chris Brown. His net worth is in the millions. He'll get a good lawyer and if he can't get out of jail time, he'll end up being placed in "nice" jail where he'll get out early due to good behavior.
If you hate the man so much that you want to see him locked up for his immoral nature, follow through with the instinct all the way. Don't give him your time. Don't stream his music on YouTube or Spotify. If you're in the car and one of his song comes up on the radio, switch that shit to another station.
As individuals we can't do anything drastic, but together, if hundreds of thousands play a small role, we can create negative consequences for those who don't abide by the moral standings we see fit.
Don't give him your time. Don't stream his music on YouTube or Spotify. If you're in the car and one of his song comes up on the radio, switch that shit to another station.
lol the way you say this gives me the impression this is a struggle for people...are y'all actually that interested in listening to some prettyboy seduce you over pop beats like that? CB makes a type of music I've never been interested in lol, I always get pissed when he shows up on a feature and fucks up the vibe of a rap song.
Some people don't understand that when they listen to a song, the artists gets .00000025 of a cent (that's a hyperbole, don't know the exact figure, but it's tiny). I agree with the logic that we vote with our wallets, and I use wallets figuratively here in replacement of the listening of music.
Personally, I never enjoyed his music. As you said, ruins the flow of the songs I do like where he's featured. His past actions however, have made me go out of my way to avoid his music. I have Sirius in my car and the radio deck tells me the artist of the song. Whenever I see CBs name, I instantly switch up or down a station. I know it probably doesn't do much, but I feel a bit better, kinda like when I buy Paul Newman's BBQ sauce over a different brand knowing that a few cents of my purchase are going to a good cause.
Another problem people have streaming Chris Browns songs is that they're just randomly placed in pre-made playlist. They just come up in their que and they don't even realize that his song is playing because they're focused on something else and the music is only there for background noise. I use my own Playlists on Spotify and recently, I just dropped Drake off them, but that's an entirely different discusion.
I bet that guy couldn't trick a 4 year old. Not Muslim, just calling it like I see it. This needs to be in thathappened section.
I'm perplexed as how the guy could write that story, than immediately follow it up with "respect is a two way street". May be a 14 year themselves evident by the lack of critcal thinking.
It really isn’t stuck on that.
Would you like to post something that would back up your claims?
First sentence - "Scientists do not know how life began on Earth"
There are a million other links on Google with similar lines. We have many theories behind our origin, but no definitive answer. And it's not like I'm some religious nut freak. I have a high school understanding of biology, I know and accept how mitosis and meisos work. My question is how did the first cell come to being, if there was no prior cell to be recreated from. No one has an answer for such a fundamental question like that.
Thing is, you don't know how the first lifeforms on Earth were created either. Science can make out a little something, you have your ideas... but you do not know either, so you should not act as if you're all high and mighty. It's just like why I'm agnostic. Nobody has hard proof that there is a god, nobody has hard proof of how many there would be, nobody has hard proof that there isn't one. So why should I pretend to above people on the topic? Edit: Expanded my explanation
Very well put, but what you say is kinda what I said. In my first comment, I ended with (not that religion has any better explanations). My following comment after, I ended saying no one has a definitive answer. All I was trying to convey was that even science doesn't have an answer for a question religion attempts to answer, which in the context where someone says "but science isn't stuck on that" is false. They are. I'm sorry if my comment got misinterpreted as, God created us, that was not my intent.
Agnostic is probably the closest thing I identify with, but I also borrow ideas from Jainist and Confucius belief along with the Christian scripture. One of my biggest problems with religion is its failure to adapt to overwhelming scientific consensus. I like to think that the Big Bang was God itself, but when certain sects of Christianity believe that the world was formed 5000 years ago, I can't help but to laugh at the poor interpretation, especially with the amount of evidence that's says contrary.
I have a similar problem with "science". In the past few centuries it has accomplished so much and it is purely the reason we could have this discussion right now. However, many people take on a mentality resembling, "science can answer everything", which is not the case for a multilude of fundamental questions. When you say that we shouldn't pretend knowing the unknownable, does that same circumstance apply when science can only come up with theories?
Oof. How can one expect a child to fully understand the vastness of the universe? I can barely grasp the size of the ocean and that's significantly smaller while also playing a larger role in my life.
Frank's antics come in handy at times. Just like in Charlie Work when he started painting himself black, Charlie used it to his advantage making Frank imitate the sounds of a carbon monoxide alarm while he was hidden in the dark from the black paint.
6% interest rate? I'd love to bank there!
Nah mate. Think you missed the dot in front. Three fifths of a percent. At least that's what Bank of America gives me on my savings account.
And that reminds me, I'm American so ,6% may be more appropriate to use for some.
Lol, the bank? You mean to get that sweet .6% interest rate? Honestly, safe investments such as mutual funds are a more appropriate channel to accumulate wealth.
But, if people get enjoyment from playing a game, let them buy it. What makes you think you should have a say in how people choose to spend their own cash?
