Ahh, the old "you're either with us or against us", just dressed up with more words. THIS. Every time I see this kind of argument, I think of Gaston from "Beauty and the Beast" crying "If you're not with us, you're against us!" while whipping up the angry mob. Or, it's...

I love classic holiday music. It's the only time year you hear certain older styles of pop music played in public instead of the standard current hits. Also, it's so merry. Full disclosure: I'm an atheist, but I even like the religious Christmas songs.

I'm not interested in politics, but narratives fascinate me. Something I've noticed is that I always used to see people (particularly on the Left) talking about "The 99% vs. the 1%," or, "it's all of us regular people vs. the billionaires keeping us down," but now I usually see &...

According to this argument, the Right got a set-up where everyone is on their side by default. I know this isn't just applied to moderates, but third-party voters, the politically disengaged (me), "mild" liberals, etc. Even if you're not supporting the Right in any way, you're still suppor...

For me, as a politically unaffiliated person, yes, it's equally applicable if someone on either side behaves this way. Exactly. Which leads to the question why only leftists get labeled this way. If right wants to use this weapon against the left, why doesn't left also use it against the right? I w...

I could be wrong, but my reading of the term "Social Justice Warrior" was that it was meant to be sarcastic (particularly the "warrior" part), aimed at people who viewed themselves as heroes on the front lines of fighting injustice, when really, they were just arguing on the int...

Thanks :). I am on leave because I have symptoms that are listed on the questionnaire we're given every time we come into work. (Although in this case, I took it from home.) When I answered yes to those questions, the system told me to stay home. (I took a screenshot of that message). And I still ha...

Thanks :).

Only a few days this time. Any more than 3 days requires a leave of absence that is approved by an outside company.

I agree, that's what I should do. In October, I didn't get tested because I was too wiped out to leave the house. I pretty much slept all day for two weeks. Everyone outside my fellow anemic family members seemed to be shocked and confused that I didn't rise out of my sick bed and go get tested. By ...

I was on COVID leave from work in October and I still don't understand anything about how the leave process works. Right now I just put in for leave again, even though I don't think I have COVID this time, I have a couple of the symptoms listed on the health screening survey we're required to take. ...

From my teenage years through my 20s, I would try to be very polite and people would still get furious at me over seemingly nothing. I don't think I went a single day during that period without someone being furious at me. There were people who were close to me who acted like they hated me, though i...

I guess I have selective empathy. If a customer at work wants a product and we're out of it, I usually feel badly for them. However, sometimes they'll be talking about the weather or whatever and then suddenly, they'll mention that they have a severely devastating life problem. I know I'm expected t...

I don't know how I would respond to climate change if it happened, so I'm not sure if I can properly answer your question. However, I have a weird view on the topic and I'd like to see whether other people feel the same. Most people seem to either believe that climate change is the most important is...

Dreams. A friend described an amazing one to me that he'd had just the other day and it was hard for me to stop myself waxing lyrical about it, despite it not even being my dream. Dreams are interesting. My dreams are usually about my special interests, such as that I'm trying to get to Disneyland ...
