    That feel when you're talking to someone and they sound super-excited about a thing but you're also pretty sure they don't actually, like... understand it at all, but you don't want to harsh their buzz by being condescending and preachy, so you just sit there like _(:ι」∠)_

    Do they not teach kids how to work google anymore? I'm not around a lot of teenagers, but I'm on the larping subreddit a lot and about half of the posts are "I can't find a larp near my city! I've looked and looked and I don't know what else to do?"

    Meanwhile, googling "Larp [city name]" gets at least one good result, and possibly a database of three or four, for any given metropolitan area. Getting in contact with that community can help you find something to suit your specific tastes.

    I mean google does not give everyone the same results, it is quite possible the personalized algorithm has taken your interests into account while theirs is very confused and trying to cough up any given thing except something helpful. Just yknow. It's a thing, google is a kettle of worms that doesn't even work reliably half the time anymore.

    People giving me advice when I do not ask for it. If I am griping I want to gripe. I do not want advice. If I want advice I will specifically ask for it. I don't see any point in playing games with advice getting.

    How can a book set in a supernatural prison make the setting sound so completely boring? Even Holes, a book for children with a very Beige Prose style, managed to make its prison-camp setting sound at least somewhat unpleasant to be in!

    My father seems to have picked up the same volume problem as my cousin, he’s so loud I can hear him through the wall and it feels like my bed is vibrating.

    I bought jasmine rice instead of basmati rice and then made my sauce too thick for it >:(

    Deresto What's your favorite Pokemon?

    Why do I keep falling in love with anime adaptions of Japanese light novels!!! The ones I seem to find usually end up cut short, with little to no satisfying endings, and I am die

    I found something which was either a squashed slug or an incredibly rotten leaf in my bag of salad. Gross. Gonna chuck that out.

    It's my first day of "no junk food during the daytime" and my stomach is aching and making hungry noises even though I don't think I can possibly be actually hungry since I ate a decent healthy lunch. Is this normal?

    I think so. Junkfood is addictive.

    Okay, that's good to know. It should stop doing that after a few days, then?

    Found some info here:

    Unfortunately it seems recovery is different for everyone, but it should get better over time. As far as the tummy grumbling, it could also be your gut microbiome not getting what it's accustomed to. That too should improve over time.

    Okay, good. I've had similar problems when I made changes before, but most of those went away pretty quickly. Hope this one does too.

    Almost every store in town is out of toilet paper and paper towels. I work in the home depot and people should not have to be so desperate for tp that that's where they have to go. If I have to hear another customer freak out about the tp situation I'm going to riot.

    Why are people hoarding toilet paper, anyway? The cleaning supplies are comprehensible, but I have no idea why people seem to think TP is a high-priority good.

    Beats me. Another customer apparently wanted one of our floor model freezers for "medical reasons." I honestly don't understand what's been happening. The last two weeks have been so weird.

    Given that current advice is to cough and sneeze into your bent arm, it would seem that people literally don't know their arse from their elbow.

    possibly some of them are hoarding toilet paper because people are hoarding toilet paper, and they don’t want to be stuck without it.
