So i like beans.

written () ago

I cook beans and onions. What i do is use canned beans. I will sautee some onion and/or garlic. Long slices of onion, not diced. When they are good and floppy i add the beans and then immediately at a little water to the pan. Just enough so the beans are all sitting in water and the water is sizzling. The starch from the bean goes into the water and makes it thicker kinda like a sauce. Keep doing that until the beans are done and the beams are nice and thicc.

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.

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.

Are you woke?

One last thing i want to say on this, in regards to the original post, in case the poster is not aware:

People who talk about multiple genders always draw a distinction between ***sex and gender. ***Sex has to do with the sexual organs you were born with. Gender has to do with what gender you identify as and many (but not all) believe gender is a spectrum.

That is honestly the limit of my knowledge and experience on the subject and I admit i don't really understand what it is like to be born with male ***sex organs but feel that you are actually a woman, or vice versa. I've never felt that way and i am not close to any transgender people. My feeling will always be, as long as you aren't hurting anyone, identify however you want. I will respect you and use whatever pronouns you wish me to.

The few transgender i have been lightly acquainted with (like, three) have been smart and nice people who were pleasant to be around in my experience.


Perhaps these are all things you find perfectly acceptable and agree with, but the brief sentence that is your original post implied otherwise to me, which why i commented.

Life sucks.

The stress and weight of financial insecurity is one of the hardest things while also being one of the things many people have the least sympathy for.

Hoping you catch a better break sometime soon.

From my circle of friends men are done with relationships including me.

If you truly are, great.

Personally i would never be "done with relationships." Im not brad pit so women aren't falling over themselves at me. And im not interested in being celibate. Besides, relationships are pretty nice. Companionship and all that.

There is tbis meme going around that ive been exposed to where men (from what i can tell, young, less experiencd ones) seem to be claiming this? Its like, dude, you're way too young to be done with anything, let alone relationships. Idk if this is a reference to that. There are a lot of folks out there preying for young men's attention by manipulating their fears, angers, or in this case, their everday normal frustrations with tbe opposite ***sex that all men (and women) experience. Ive even seen tbis female youtuber doing it, basically complaining how women are terrible and you shouldn't date them (seriously). Its messed up.

i never was a twitter guy until elon bought em out. i think its worth checking out!

Really the only thing i can tell is different with elon in charge: more intrusive ads, and making it so you can buy tweet visibility in a very sneaky way.

If it wasn't that there are smart people on there worth following inwould not use it.

allow me to correct myself, i mean to say twitter was not something i bothered with until the hype with elon.. the media really made him out to look like a bad guy.. anyways.. so i checked out twitter.. as a non user, doesnt seem much different from other platforms.

I think ADs are always gonna weasle their way in what not.

** sorry for low caps.. i have a pinky syndrome that makes it difficult to press shift

He was controversial because of his approach to content moderatation. Honestly i have barely noticed anything that wise and it wouldn't effect my experience because of how i use twitter.

I don't know that much about Elon. I will give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he is very smart about engineering and maybe also smart about some business stuff (but not that smart, as buying twitter was such an obviously bad investment for himself that he made at precisely the wrong time just-to-be-a-legend).

But i hate how he changed how the verified thing works, its dumb. If he wanted to let people buy twitter visibility, fine, but don't make it the blue checkmark, he should have made it something different.

Twitter always had ads but now you are seeing them more frequently and even in the middle of threads which didn't used to happen.
