PSA: There is probably some kind of election going on in your county this November.

Step 1. Find out what county you live in.

I feel it changing my dna and making me more susceptible to the evil 5G rays, mutating me into a half tree half mollusk type creature. I have already begun to lose my free will and will soon join the Great Horde.


Misinformation about vaccines.

There is a lot of it. Here is a doctor to clear some things up. I hope that if someone who is on the fence of taking a vaccine sees this, they change their minds.


Too much snow.

Anyone have any good experiences? I have recently become interested in investing my money in stocks so I am considering the Fidelity credit card.

Why do young people like socialism so much?

Questions are good but if this is more than a rant, the right question must be asked.

I'm in my early thirties, so i count as young? What about elementary school kids?

And what do you mean by socialism? The usa has tons of socialist policies that no one (or at least not most) seem to have a problem with. Public schools, public libraries, social security, unemployment benefits, the government of most states requiring you to have auto insurance if you want to drive, and others i can't think of right now.

Probably you have none of these things in mind when you say socialism, but are simply aping rhetoric that a pundit is spouting who could care less if your child has a basic education.

The only way a debate like this becomes grounded in reality is by talking about specific problems with specific policies. Otherwise both sides are swiming in a sea of idealisti nonesense.

FYI, Yahoo Answers is shutting down next week.

Maybe that will increase this site's market share lol

So I'm scared I hurt a snake...

Let me say I am pleased to see a bipedal show such concern for his reptilian fellows. while I am not an expert on snakes, I believe that, if it was hurt, you would probably be able to tell. Bones crack when broken, and you should realize that creatures are usually built pretty tough - snakes spend their whole lives on the ground, after all.

He wouldn't have been much safer living in your store, so I believe you did the right thing. On the other hand, I would offer...what if the snake was venomous? I do not know where you live and if there are such snakes in the area, but your job probably doesn't pay you enough to get treated for snake venom. Animal control may have been a better option.

Solipsism (/ˈsɒlɪpsɪzəm/ from Latin solus, meaning 'alone', and ipse, meaning 'self') is the philosophical idea that only one's own mind is sure to exist.

I think, therefore I am. But why not just, Think. Think. Think. And not bother to assume that I must be the one thinking. Maybe the thoughts belong to someone else. To assume the thoughts that appear in the head on these shoulders as these hands type are my own is just as good as to assume that the sandwhich that these eyes see in your hand is mine just because these eyes in this head see it.

There's a giveness to thoughts though-they're personal, no one else seems to hear them unless I open my mouth, and I can do it at anytime that I'm not asleep. How can the thoughts that I can hear that you cannot hear be yours and not mine? But might as well ask why the voice the deaf man cannot hear when he uses his mouth not be his and not mine when I hear it while it's just we two in the room.

Is it wrong to wish someone would go away?

It really depends on the context but i would say in general wishing something has little effect on anyone else's life so the ethical considerations are minimal to be sure.

Why are teachers and other school staff paid so little?

The Teacher's Union is the largest Union in the U.S.

Hmmm it seems it is true that there is an overarching teacher's union but i imagine membership and influence varies greatly by state and local affiliate.

How long until you can report an adult missing?

Probably best to call the police and see what they think.

Yes, I agree with all of this.

I'm just disillusioned with state and national level political options.

Side note: I'm on an organizing committee of a statewide minor political party, so obviously I haven't totally given up hope.

Yeah point was this was just to remind people that there are elections going on everywhere....as far as actual offices up for election, for me it is just my county and some town offices.

It's interesting because I tend to vote a specific party because I don't usually do that much research but on the county level issues, often time party doesn't really matter.

Like the one candidate I am looking at who I would otherwise vote for is opposed to specific development projects that I honestly don't have a problem with. Still looking at her platform to see where she stands on other issues.

I live in a "right to work" state, so no effective unions.

It is so funny that it is called "right to work." I have been listening to a lot of history podcasts lately and the term "right to work" originally related to wanting laws to get passed where the government had to provide you with a job if you could not find one.

Yes, vote, but they never offer any good candidates. The big two parties in the US are both criminal mafias. Vote anyway though.

That is why we should have ranked choice voting...would make it easier for independents to run and win.

Regardless, even if there are only two candidates, most likely you will prefer one to the other...most people have opinions are the major issues of the day.

Also propositions are often on the ballot. Where I live there are propositions that are actually proposing changes to the State constitution. Last year we had a proposition about term limits of county officials.
