Answered What are Florida ounces?

107.6k Upvotes

I didn't think much of this when I lived in Florida. Many products were labeled in Florida ounces. But now that I live in another state I'm surprised to see products still labeled with Florida ounces.

I looked up 'Florida ounces' but couldn't find much information about them. Google doesn't know how to convert them to regular ounces.

Answered Are men really that much stronger than women?

40.1k Upvotes

I’m a man, and recently I’ve been seeing post about women being weaker than men exponentially. This post is the one that surprised me a lot. It made it sound like the average guy is much stronger than the strongest woman. This post had comments saying that her deadlift isn’t super heavy. I do lift weights and can deadlift over her weight, but I thought it was just because she doesn’t work out much.

Personally I have never been a situation where I have had to fight a women or pin one down, so I don’t know. I just thought women were slightly less strong if not equal, but I’ve been seeing things that say otherwise.

Edit: To everyone calling me a dumbass, the subreddit is called no stupid questions.

Edit 2: I have gotten so many replies my inbox has literally broke. Please stop.

Is Russia truly doing such a poor job in the invasion of Ukraine or are we just being fed propaganda?

39.8k Upvotes

Propaganda is certainly in full swing on both sides but the narrative, from a western perspective, is that Russia has royally screwed the pooch during this invasion. If we are to believe what is being spoken it seems like they are just throwing meat and materials into the grinder in Ukraine and getting obliterated. Are the Russians truly taking such monumental losses and is their economy soon to be as fucked as people claim?

Answered How to prepare your house for an active wartime?

37.1k Upvotes

I'm Ukrainian and as you might know, shit's about to hit the fan (maybe not? I don't know).

If it gets relatively bad, we may be cut from electricity, water, heat supplies, so how do I prepare for that? Is there some survival lists/kits to look into? Like obviously we'll need water, canned food, maybe some way to start a fire inside if it gets to that, some way to cook (gas camping stove?), but what else?

A place for excrements in case of plumbing issues, some medication? I have no idea how can one prepare to live in a war zone, and I don't want to panic but I'd rather be ready for at least something than just sit here and wait for what's to come.

Thanks. I wish you all a peaceful sky above your heads.

oh and by the way, is there something to do with the apartment itself? I don't know maybe like some sheets or platic over windows etc

edit: oh wow so many great replies, some people even offered me shelter in their country, this community can be so incredible. Thank you all. I hope it won't come to that.

There's so many comments, I'm sorry I can't reply to all of you, but thank you, I will try and do my best.

It's over a thousand replies now so I'm sorry again if I missed anything, but if you want to ask/know something, just DM me and I'll try to answer.

TL;DR: I live in Kyiv. People are split, but no one really wants to aknowledge the fact that we might be on the brink of war with (the better word would probably be 'destruction by') russia. Like, what's the point in talking about it? So we don't. Government just issued a leaflet about what to have in your medkit and how to behace in case of artillery strikes, so there's that. News are bleak, you don't know what to believe, maybe it's propaganda, maybe it's the boy who cried 'wolf', maybe it's a distraction. Fireworks went out yesterday (which are by the way illegal due to veterans with PTSD from war) and I was scared it was a strike. I'm prone to anxiety so maybe I'm not the most objective spectator, but it's fucking hard. You either read the news and realize it gets worse and worse, or you stick your head into the sand and wish it would all go away. Something like this happened before, but never on this scale, they're spending a lot of effort and money bringing all these troops (over 100k) and vehicles (they even had 90 trains with tanks in Belarus out of a sudden) and ships around us. And since the west didn't blink, either putin's bluffing or doesn't care. Fuck.

EDIT on 24th of Feb since people keep messaging me. It happened. Nothing can prepare you to waking up at 5 am from explosions, it was the single most scary experience of my life. People are fleeing kiev. hundred-long lines to pharmacies and food stores. nothing else to say.

Am I weird for thinking my wife’s weird for keeping all our kids fallen off body pieces (teeth, umbilical cord, nail clippings etc.) in a chest in the closet?

36.6k Upvotes

Edit: She came out of the bathroom just a moment ago and said “you asked f****** Reddit”? She’s not talking to me now but if you read this Hunny, I told you it was weird.

Edit 2: My wife isn’t mad everyone lol, she’s more upset/surprised that the majority agrees weird . Some on Reddit need to realize not every married couple turns everything into a fight. We both had a great morning of laughs over this. Some on Reddit also need to realize just because something is weird doesn’t mean it requires mental health professionals lol. While I think she’s weird for it, it’s really not a big deal. They’re her kids she carried and she can keep whatever body pieces she wants. I will however of course start storing used baby wipes from changing the newborn in my closet in a chest for her to find.

Answered What does dying feel like?

I’m 21 years old and I am a terminal cancer patient. I was doing well for awhile but it appears my borrowed time is up. I have Ewing’s sarcoma in my lungs and I was wondering if anyone here could help me understand what’s going to happen as this starts to progress further. I want to know what I’m in for. I’m not looking for a sugar coated “everything’s fine” approach. I know I’m dying, I just want to know what’s coming before the end.

Edit: I’m not looking for the moment of death or afterlife. I’m asking about the physical decline I’m in for.

Edit 2: to anyone that reads this thank you very much for your comments. I got many great answers to my question and many of you shared personal experiences. I can’t thank you all enough.

Edit 3: please stop telling me to turn to religion. Simple as that

Edit 4: With an extremely heavy heart I’m sorry to say that OP lost his battle with cancer today. OP was blown away by all the support and advice he received from this thread. He definitely appreciated all the advice.

Answered Is life really just working a 40 hour work week to savor a precious weekend over and over again until you die?

34.1k Upvotes

I just turned 18, and from my understanding, being an adult means: working a meaningless and grueling job 5 days a week to have enough money to pay for livable accommodations, while having little to no time for relationships, hobbies, or really anything that makes life worth living. And the weekend is just two days of stress trying to get as much done as possible because you don't have time during the week.

Is it like this for everyone? Is there a way to NOT have to do this? What's the point?

EDIT: I should add that I'm NOT someone that would rather party every day and engage in grossly hedonistic alternatives. I don't want a massive house/s. I don't want a brand-new sports car/s. I don't want 10 wives. I just want to live with someone I love and spend as much time with them as possible while furthering my knowledge and pursuing art. That's all.
