America is more culturally Protestant than Catholic

I can't remember the last time I actually met a Catholic. I'm convinced that they only exist in New York State.

see more

I live in the Midwest, and there are quite a few here. Lots of Catholic schools and such, but who knows? The vast majority of countries can’t be accurately represented by just one religion.

That there’s nothing but cornfields and farms here. Sure, our cities may not be the most famous, but there’s still a lot to do! I think people would be surprised if they came to visit.

Also, in Ohio we have some pretty cool nature. Hocking Hills is great, as are the other state parks, and there are lots of forests here.

What show was this? I remember it so fondly but I can’t remember the name

It was a game show on Nickelodeon called BrainSurge if I remember correctly. Had to look it up.

As an American, I lurk here a lot but never comment. I just want to say that we really do admire and appreciate you guys, even if the news doesn’t always make it seem that way.

Sorry about the tariffs and trade war and everything. Happy (belated) Canada Day!

I believe the word you’re looking for is football. /s

Amazing work, OP!

So is it okay for this to happen to a man? Because this absolutely happened to me (took a selfie in front of Notre-Dame and got grabbed and kissed by a random girl mid picture).

Edit: Am I really getting downvoted for talking about this? Guess it's not okay for men to admit that something's wrong.

Not the original commenter here, but what that girl did wasn’t okay at all. It’s not acceptable for any stranger to do that sort of thing, no matter their gender and yours. Sorry that happened to you.

A handwritten thank you note can never be underestimated. It's a dying art.

Just got done writing some thank you notes for retiring teachers. My hand hurts, but it was definitely worth it.

Yeah, I do occasionally. My favorite would have to be The Inbetweeners. I can’t thank my English friend enough for introducing it to me. British humor is somehow funnier to me than American :)

Edit: Haven’t heard of Love Island, though. I’ll check it out.

Jesus Fuck!

And they complain about dumb questions on r/askanamerican

Nearly certain this was meant to be a joke, dude.

Well did you pick both? Because I did. Not sure if that was right though.

see more

I picked both, but I’m not sure either.

I don’t think there’s really a need for it. Like you mentioned, we have driver’s licenses already, and some people have passports as well. Those serve our needs perfectly, and even if we didn’t have one of those two options, which is rare, many places of education and work provide people with IDs. I’m pretty sure there are also state IDs.

So no, we don’t need a national ID card. I don’t think the general public would be against them, but they probably wouldn’t be adopted very readily. If they weren’t required to have them, people would be indifferent, and if they were mandatory to have, I think some people might be a bit annoyed, but nothing more.

I’m from Ohio, and I don’t think there’s a specific answer to your question, but it could be that we’re just a bit more resistant to change here. If the recipients of your calls already have suppliers for whatever you’re selling, they may not want to rock the boat at all. We’re a bit plain-Jane around here.

Again, not sure if that’s why, but you certainly have a weird pattern on your hands.

I made some maple syrup on our farm with my grandad up in PA. Omg, it was the best syrup I have ever had. I ate pancakes and waffles for days.

see more

We used to make it at my elementary school (in Ohio)! I distinctly remember having pancake parties once it was ready later on in the year.

INTJs actually don’t vibe well together unless you have many similar views/opinions. We all think we’re right so INTJs with opposite views clash pretty hard. Also, I would argue with the above comment that INTJs might seem quiet in certain situations, but also might be mistaken for an extrovert if we’re in a situation that we’re comfortable in, or enjoy talking about. Ex. I might be super quiet in a class I’m not interested in, and might be the main instigator of conversation in another class I’m interested in. In close friendships, we are definitely not known as quiet. Find yourself a ENFP - they can click really well with INTJs and seem like introverts sometimes.

see more

I can concur with this. My best friend is an ENFP and we get along incredibly well. There’s never a shortage of things to talk about.

I have the same problem! I’m disappointed because the only update I got was seeing “West Asian” instead of Middle Eastern. The match strength option is available, but mine is empty like yours.

But this literally happened in Colorado today, this type of weather. Not sure about gif.

Happened in Ohio as well. Let’s just say weird weather is a general North America thing.

American Pie

(It’s a good song, okay?)

I get asked if I live on a farm a lot. Mostly by people who live on the coasts.

What app is that

I could be totally wrong here, but it looks like Procreate with a multicolored background and a custom brush.

I’m hoping this is a joke, but...

Murdering isn’t heroic. Murderers selfishly take the lives of other people, oftentimes without considering the consequences. In some cases it might be a call for help, but it doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be treated like a sick child, and in no way are they better than other people.

It’s not as deep as you’re making it.

False. The one who was murdered, if anything, is the selfish one. They were likely culprits in cultivating the alienating environment that produced this murderer. I know I deserve to be murdered, for I am middle class, and while people of my bracket vote for corrupt politicians who continue to condemn entire communities to destitution, more people are driven to commit these desperate acts of killing. Honestly, everyone besides the poor should be murdered.

see more

Get some mental help, dude. What even is the “alienating environment” you’re talking about? People kill people for drugs, money, food, on accident, on purpose, without thinking, with premeditation, or just because. There are tons of different situations. You can’t simplify all murderers into a collective group.

Seriously, just stop before you seem even more emo and fake-deep.

For some reason my school had plastic milk bags. I think it was there attempt to save money, but for us kids we could squirt milk far across the cafeteria.

Same, but it sucked when you accidentally punched the straw through both sides of the bag.

Dissenters? What is this, 17th century Puritan society?
