Themistocles was a complicated guy, he probably never had just one reason for doing anything. The Athenian navy was the service of the poorer citizens who were his political base. The navy was a jobs program as well as a defense so what was good for Athens was, probably not coincidentally, also goo...

I'm not a manipulator. I wouldn't call it manipulation, you are just trying to get someone to do what they should be doing. Psychological manipulation has a connotation of abuse, motivating people to do their job properly could hardly be called abusive. Understanding people can be a bit dishearteni...

I already see that spooky shit on my OKcupid profile everyday. Good one. I like how she's been plastering the forum with her pictures, more than anyone else, trying to get attention with threads like "what do you guys think of my hair", "what should I wear", "what do you think of my chin". But the ...

Like I said, cops are like any other employee, good bad and indifferent. They are essentially bureaucrats because they work for an organization governed by rules where managers have limited discretionary powers and there is a monopoly so the customer has no alternative to their service. When trying...

You guys remember the popsicle stick spare ribs? Sadly the blog is gone and I can't find a single picture. Remember when the forum vegan tried to say the baked in popsicle stick bones were meant as serving utensils and not to imitate bones? LOL Then I quoted the blog saying they were bones. Haha Th...

This officer was too ridiculous. He both criticized me for not reporting my brother physically abusing me in the past, while demeaning me for reporting this. I mean, there is documentation of him physically abusing me in the past even though I wasn't the one who reported it, and the only reason I br...

The best thing is to just avoid confrontations with people who seem crazy. Often the situation is a bluff, like how when a dog is on a leash it will display much more aggressively toward other dogs. I've seen lots of people, mostly men, who will display violence on objects as a way to intimidate pe...

Okay, so my hypothetical situation is actually a real situation that happened tonight. I need to make a decision to report it or not right now. But I also am supposed to be studying for a test I have tomorrow so this really couldn't have happened at a worse time. But a psychologist just suggested I ...

I feel so sorry for you that you think animal flesh and secretions are food and you will never understand how heavenly delicious tofu saag is. Especially put on top of naan to make little tofu saag tacos.

We'd go out for burgers.
You've taken the hypothetical situation theme too far.
