I literally struggle to understand what people from the South are saying.
I am still salty about losing the district finals of the sixth grade spelling bee because the official pronunciation lady had a strong Southern accent and we were in Suburban Los Angeles.
The word was Dowry, which sixth-grade me had never heard, but this bitch pronounced it DAWL-ree, with a strong L sound that didn't make phonetic sense. I spelled it the best I could... using a letter L.
Hasbro is recalling a troll doll of a campaign claiming a seat sensor on the doll's butt is "intended to normalize pedophilia." Hasbro tacitly accepted blame by recalling the toys.
I honestly find that what this actually normalizes is misandry by seeing pedophilia in every ambiguous thing and assuming the worst. It also has the kafka trap property where if you don't agree with the ban campaign, you're supporting pedophilia.

Good video, with good advice.
Firearms training, and carrying a firearm, is excellent training in what truly matters. You're no longer interested in "throwing down"... because if it's not worth shooting someone dead over, it's not worth fighting over.
Fighting is for defending what you have, or getting something you don't, not for adjusting your self-image.
@tb87670 I'm a "jot down cool ideas" kind of guy which led me to discover that lots of women's houses have ZERO paper or writing instruments. I'd find myself tearing a strip off the rim of a grocery bag or picking junk mail out of their trash just to have something-anything to write on. Great requisitioning of resources if he did pull them from within the house, and lucky the teflon-y underside of the toilet seat she never lifts was clean enough to hold a sticky note.
