Happy birthday, Jedi scum!

Very nice. I have always preferred the older Fallouts to the newer ones. It is nice to see some people still retain love for the originals and not the Bethesda games.

안녕하세요, /r/history에 관심을 가져 주어서 감사합니다. 강혁님의 두번쩨 포스트에는 몇가지 개인적인 이론들에 대해서 쓰셧는데요, 우리 서브레딧에는 그런 콘텐트를 용납하지 않습니다. 만약 역사학자들의 이론에 대해서 이야기하고 싶다면 그 이론들을 뒺받침하는 출처들을 넣어주세요.

안녕하세요, /r/history에 관심을 가져 주어서 감사합니다. 우리 서브레딧에는 여러 규칙들이 있는데요, 오른쪽에 있는 Sidebar에 가보시면 그 규칙들을 읽으실수 있어요. 지금 만드신 포스트는 우리 규칙에 어긋나느 포스트 입니다. 포스트의 표제는 그 포스트에 무엇이 들어있는지 암시헤야 합니다.

I lived in Korea for 3 years and I've never felt safer in a country. And I've been to quite a few countries.

The South Korea from right after the Korean War is completely different from the South Korea we have today. South Korea has their problems but nowhere close to the picture you have of South Korea.

The safety you feel now is the product of dead and missing university students that protested against the conservative regime. I am not saying that modern SK is a dangerous place to protest, but the fact that massive protests brought about the change resulting in your feeling of safety is a pertinent fact in this topic.

Ahh I understand your comment now. I thought you were talking about current South Korea. I thought you were implying that people could potentially get shot in Korea for protesting right now.

To reply to your current comment. I would have never moved to Korea if it was still what it was in the 60s, 70s and 80s. So my point of me feeling safer at a protest in current South Korea in comparison to a protest in current USA still stands.

I 100% agree with you that protest is great and can massively change a country for better. The thing is that Americans right now don't feel threaten like the people in South Korea did when those massacres happened.

Shit a good percentage of the country doesn't care what Donald Trump does as long as those "fucking liberals" aren't running the country. They will vote for anyone or anything as long as they get to keep their guns and pay less taxes.

Oh I wasn't the original guy you were conversing with, just a native from that peninsula dropping in on the topic.

A healthy democracy comes from a well-informed, socially conscious, and politically active citizen base. It is very telling that it was the college-educated in my country that sacrificed their youth and for many of them, their lives, to protest President Park and his stooges' tyranny. Without them, SK would have remained just another one of those failed democracies America littered behind their attempt at preventing the Domino Collapse.

And then of course the elderly who romanticise the time of the dictator Park votes for his fucking daughter and his party. So it goes.

Improvement will only come with a rejuvenation of how your nation treats education.

I have never taken a day of vacation in my life. I've had periods of joblessness and homelessness, but nobody has ever paid me to sit at home in my pajamas beating off in between Netflix binges.

Your post was removed because of Rule #5:

make your titles descriptive and just about the food. We allow titles that describe the food, just the food and nothing but the food. Not allowed: location, the occasion, any narrative backstories, any extra details that do not describe what the food is. This includes "from scratch", first time, tried my hand, etc. If you are going to post a compilation album, you must describe the first three ingredients. Avoid all caps. If you are posting [vegan/vegetarian/gf/keto] foods, do not title them with those words. Use the specific flair for them.

Mod discretion will be used to encourage you to repost with a different title, like this auto comment for example.

Please resubmit your post using a title which is just a concise description of the food. Thank you.

These observations are for both men and women, I've seen the following in both who are unsuccessful ( I use the general "you" here):

-Just not putting yourself in a position to meet anyone. I'm super introverted, so I get it, but if your whole life is sleep/work/gym/tv/sleep you're not going to get anywhere.

-Not taking care of yourself. Bad hygiene, sloppy appearance, etc.

-Wanting qualities in a partner that you yourself cannot match. Like wanting an ambitious doctor when you're lazy and underemployed. Wanting a sexy, fit person when you are obese.

-Being desperate. Every date you do get, you pin all your hopes and dreams upon them. You stifle down your personality in an attempt to get an SO. You become clingy and/or move too fast, scaring them away.

-Sort of like above, having "oneitis". Fixating on maybe a person in your friend group, or an acquaintance, and becoming obsessed with them. Leads to fruitless unrequited crushes. I suspect people who do this a lot are scared of intimacy and use their crushes as a way to avoid real relationships.

-Anger or entitlement issues. Basically taking rejection terribly. Rejection sucks, but resist sending that DM calling someone a whore or an asshole if they won't go out with you. You're only confirming their decision to reject you as the correct one.

-Becoming angry at your preferred gender and painting them all with the same brush. After a run of bad luck, it's easy to be like, "men are fucking pigs" or "women are shallow whores". But this bitterness is unfair and holding you back.

tl;dr: r/niceguys and r/nicegirls

Yes, the North should have and did allow slavery to continue as it was the law. If they wanted to change the law they should have canvassed and informed people about how bad it is instead of saying "fuck it you don't get to vote on this anymore."

 

Slavery is wrong, but full blown despotism is worse.

 

Oh right, every single civilization from 10,000 BC to AD 1864 was a criminal enterprise and the whole world was expected to willingly and immediately collapse when a few guys said, "you know I don't much care for this practice." forgot about that.

I understand that this is an intense discussion, but sweeping generalisations and name-calling of sizeable swathes of the star wars community is not called for. Neither is it conducive to productive discussion. Please check the sidebar and familiarise yourself with the rules.
