Unanswered Why do so many girls believe in astrology?

9.2k Upvotes

It is genuinely baffling to me. I don’t think I know a single guy who believes in astrology yet a truly crazy amount of girls do. The thing is some of those are genuinely rational and intelligent human beings, so I can’t understand why they believe in it and more so why is it a girl thing.

Unanswered my boss just asked for my original resume after Ive been employed there for 10 years

9.1k Upvotes

As title says, Ive worked here for 10 years, the last 8 months I've been on compensation after a safety incident where my head was severely injured, I'm doing quite well now, but why would my boss ask for my resume after all this time ?

Edit: thankyou all for advice, Ive told them it's no longer available, they indicated it was to do with the workers compensation, and I'm get to hear anymore, thankyou again for your advice and information.

Unanswered Why are people collectively pretending COVID just isn't a thing anymore?

714 Upvotes

It can't just be me who's noticing that people are just...pretending like COVID never happened out in public, right? No masks anywhere to be seen outside of medical facilities, people sneezing and coughing into their hands to spread their germs everywhere, cramming into places like a sardine can. It's like we haven't spent the last three years dealing with this thing.

Why have people just decided to pretend that COVID is over? Have we just collectively given up on trying to protect each other because of how many people refused to do anything related to preventing COVID so they could go out and party instead or because "MASKS PREVENT YOU FROM BREATHING!!!!!!!" nonsense?

Like...I'm legitimately at a loss, going out and seeing people act like this disease which has killed so many already isn't still around killing so many more.

Unanswered is it actually rude to DM someone?

793 Upvotes

I was in a book reading server on discord, noticed someone wrote they were from same country as me, so I decided to DM and ask if they could recommend a good book in our language. No responsive given - but 10 minutes later a mod warns me in public chat.

I apologized, but truth be told I don't see how it can be offensive, unless you DM something rude. I think warning me in public like that is more rude.

When I make reddit posts I occasionally receive DMs regarding my post, never once did I consider it to be rude

Unanswered Why are shy people told to become more outgoing but outgoing people are never told to be more shy/shut up?

11.3k Upvotes

As a shy person, I've been told many times that I need to be more outgoing. However, I overthink conversations and think, "if I say this, where does that lead this person to say". However, outgoing people are never told to be more quieter or just shut up. I've been on the receiving end of many boring stories I can't relate to or just stories that lead nowhere in conversation when it comes to my turn. They just generally end with, "well, you had to be there" type situations.

Unanswered Who the actual fuck is keeping black liquorice producers in business?

2.4k Upvotes

I have yet to meet another human being that tastes the equivalent of a gangrenous haemorrhoid and is like "this is some serious gourmet shit". It's the Domino's pizza of candy, the most egregious use of the word "food" and yet it's produced worldwide with profits evidently.

There is unholy amount of production, and it's hidden in products like jellybeans to ruin the entire experience. Is the business for producing the flavour just that lucrative? Or is there some secret inner circle of payoffs to let black liquorice be inserted into various products? Or is it just popular despite an almost universal hatred?

2.5k Upvotes

It's been 10 years last March since I graduated college, but I still have that occasional nightmare of me coming into class one day totally unprepared for a test, me realizing I've been skipping one particular class all semester and now will have to retake it, or me forgetting about a project that's due today.

For the record, I never had these issues during my time in college. Why am I being haunted by these thoughts years later?

Unanswered Not being political but am actually curious, how is it that cops seem to detain these mass shooters but so many end up killing someone over smaller crimes?

1.4k Upvotes

It’s weird right? I mean, we hear about police abuse so much and over nothing to smaller crimes like drugs that it feels like the majority of them are untrained and scared. However when a mass shooting comes up, so many cops become tactical, patient. Pulling away from big emotional issues or political points of view, why does this seem that cops become more level headed in these situations? Is it because their bosses are usually on the scene? Is it because there are more of them? Are different quality of cops called in for these situations?

Unanswered If your kidnapper was forcing you to write a "I'm okay i ran away" letter, how can you communicate duress without the kidnapper knowing?

23.7k Upvotes

I remember listening to a true crime podcast about a girl that was kidnapped, the police were looking for her.

After she stayed in the news for a while the kidnapper made her write a letter which he would send to her home, she ended up pushing her fingernail into one of the words in attempt to communicate duress for the investigators. But before it could be mailed, the kidnapper saw what she did and tortured her, making her rewrite the letter while looking over her shoulder.

Handwriting experts weren't able to deduce duress from the letter the kidnapper sent, and no one was sure if she was being held against her will or not. So how could one communicate duress secretly in a letter like that? I was thinking, maybe pressing the pencil down a little harder at the end of the letters h-e-l-p, just enough for investigators to notice if they very closely analyzed the letter. But Idk that sounds too obvious. What would you do?

Unanswered Why are people in the US so obsessed with moving out at 18?

102 Upvotes

Basically from my experience thru Reddit, I have seen that a lot of people want to move out at 18, before their education is even complete or they even have a decent job.

Here where I stay, most people never move out, but I’m not asking that. Why don’t y’all move our once y’all are independent, and can earn decently.

On the crust, it seems that it would solve a lot of the problems y’all have (read- living paycheque to paycheque, student loans ).

Since rent is a major cost, it can be almost fully eliminated, and in a fraction of a cost, you could even help your parents out in their house.

Unanswered Has the sun gotten much more intense or is my memory tricking me?

73 Upvotes

I remember that when I was a kid, I was spending all day outside in the blazing sun in Switzerland. I rarely got any sunburn, it was never so hot that I needed to seek shade to rest and overall it felt less "intense".

Nowadays I hide inside during the summer. The sun feels like stinging needles on my skin and the heat is overwhelming. It's not even about the temperature but more about how "intense" the sun feels on the skin and how uncomfortable it is now. It used to be like a warm blanket and now it feels like sandpaper. Is that because of higher UV? Or is my mind playing a trick on me and I am just getting old?

What is the “free speech” that Elon Musk is going to allow on Twitter that isn’t already permitted on the platform?

I see tweets and comments like this and it has me confused.

What types of free speech are currently being stifled by Twitter?

Can somebody please give me an example of free speech that would return to the platform, that isn’t hate speech, racism, discrimination or similar?

Or does Elon Musk just mean he will allow those types of comments, more openly than they already are allowed?
