Feels like there are still some blurry lines here but it's specific enough for a hypothetical question. I don't change my answer.

Sex, Drugs, and Music. You can only Choose to live with Two. Which Option will you Sacrifice? by Stankmango in AskSaidIt

[–]slabgreen 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I'll take sex and music. Never seen the appeal of drugs (no, not even caffeine), although you're going to need to be a bit more specific on what counts as a drug... I mean, I drink tea. Is that a drug?

Also, what happens if I do take a drug? Do I spontaneously combust? Does it just not affect me? Or disappear, or be replaced with sugar pills? What if it's not on purpose? Questions, man, questions.

Edit: Also, out of curiosity, if you choose no music, it says YouTube and other streaming sites are banned. Does that just apply to music? I mean, you could still watch / listen to YT videos without any music in them, right?

As someone who is pretty-left-leaning I agree.

Plus, the really problematic subreddits aren't being banned, whereas things like r/watchpeopledie were.

I second this. Human evolution isn't just genetic. A gay person may not pass on their genes (and this could change soon, given scientific advances), but they can pass on their labor and ideas. In this day and age it's rather absurd to suggest that having children is the only, or even the most significant, way to impact society.

Also, can we all just take a moment to appreciate how responsible an admin u/magnora7 is?

I've honestly never experienced anything like that. I usually just have a set sleep schedule though, to try to use my time well (then watch videos online for two hours after I wake up super early, negating the purpose of the entire routine). That's kinda cool.

I'm okay with 6 consistently, although I find that it's easier for me to go with an irregular sleep schedule and jump between 4 and 8 hours as needed. I don't start feeling extra sleepy unless I sleep less than 6 hours for several weeks. I used to think I had really bad insomnia as a kid since I was expected to sleep 8-9 hours and frequently didn't fall asleep until two or three in the morning.

I agree that it's pretty stupid to be "offended" at innocuous things and promote censorship. However, it's just as bad to be openly disrespectful and discriminatory and expect other people to be okay with it because "stop being such a snowflake SJW smh." Let's all be reasonable people on some middle ground. And this isn't even really a meme, or if it is it's a shitty one. This is just a blatant political / social opinion pasted over an image...
