I don't get the people who are complaining about how the Series of Unfortunate Events show is "too depressing". I went on my irl Facebook for once in a blue moon and that's all my friends/relatives are bitching about. Like did you ever read the books?? There's a warning at the beginning of every show saying that it's a sad story. The title even says that it's going to be sad. What did you expect???

That's kind of funny actually.

Why do Star Trek and Star Wars fans hate eachother? like, why can't we just get along?!
I love Star Wars, but I also love Star Trek, why is that considered a bad thing by people?

I'll never understand why people just feel like its ok to piss someone off just because they are mad. No need to spread the anger. Another thing that I'll never understand is why people stomp really loudly when mad, like there's no point!

America tbh.... I just like can't comprehend the whole political system, especially. Also guns. Like the majority of the population voted in Trump, that's not his fault ??? Also why are you rioting about him "destroying america"?? The population are the ones trashing the streets, burning stuff, smashing windows ???? Hillary was bad, too like she was corrupt AF ??? tbh Hillary representing what was wrong with government, and Trump representing whats wrong with culture!!

Actually about 2.9 million more people voted for Hillary than Trump but since the American voting system is weird she still lost. People are rioting because they're afraid, they don't feel safe and are afraid Trump is going to take away their rights and freedoms. He hasn't acknowledged any of their worries, rather he has mocked them. That's why people are so upset
Hillary was a bad apple too but at least if she had won people wouldn't be fearing for their lives and basic human rights

I don't get why so many people make their sonas or characters in general have the same perfect body. Well in a way I do as media makes people think its "the" body to have and want, but I still find it kinda odd so many people have the same perfect body especially for their sonas.

I don't find the "perfect body" thing really attractive.

Like sure some muscle and strength is good but like the OVER BUFF and SUPER SKINY thing is like... not good.

On the other hand being really fat, out of shape, and gross doesn't seem attractive either.

Just right in the middle is perfect.

I suppose that's mostly your opinion, saying what is "perfect" right?

But honestly, as long as the person is comfortable with their body and is healthy and not harming themself, the person has the potential to be attractive to me.

I think everyone has preferences of course, but, it's really unrealistic to depict sooooo many characters as Calvin Klein-esque models lmao

I always thought it was because animals in general are slender... At least most canines are. Dyno is slender and skinny because he's a zootopian fox, thus he resembles Nick Wilde pretty well, though he's also shorter has a bigger tail and stuff. Either way, I didn't make him how he is to look like a model, I was just making him fox-like.

I kinda used "perfect" as an overexaggeration but I agree with you.

I don't get how people see small pets as low maintenance
Like they're just like any other pets
You need to keep them and their area clean
Give them as much attention
Feed them daily

I cannot stand this enough, first of all, small animals (especially feeders, such as mice and rats) tend to be less hardier than other domesticated animals. They tend to be more intelligent than others, therefore, requiring more attention (some hamsters, however, don't require constant attention)-Most are packing animals, very sociable, and need AT LEAST one or more teammates of the same species and sex. Meaning more money spent of expensive quality foods, liners/bedding, cages (fuck these are the most expensive for some reason), toys, and other kinds of supply.

Many small animals tend to catch Pneumonia, Respiratory issues, a variety of viruses, cysts, tumors, cancers, and carry LOTS of parasites due to mass production in chain pet stores and feeder bins. This even goes for breeders, these kind of pets require lots of quarantining and can transmit diseases like the black plague.

They're really expensive and an overall shitty pet, but if you're up to the challenge of constant care and vet bills, than sure, go for it-

Now I'm not scaring you out of keeping a mere hamster, I'm just saying how much commitment small pets really require. Some tend to be easier to care than others (Flying squirrels, NOT SUGAR GLIDERS, are an easy pet to care), just do your research, I BEG OF YOU

As for the beta fish (or Siamese Fighting fish, as some call), I think they get less torture than most pets. Now these guys are damn hardy than your average fish, they're from the tropical regions, but can survive well from most malfunctions and are damn cheap and easy to find. Most fish hobbyists that I've seen tend to get their bettas from the LFS (Local fish shop), and many bettas are 'rescued' in a sense.

They don't require tank mates, unless you're building a sorority, but are mainly easy to care for than tetras and goldfish

However, despite being hardy and an overall easy fish to keep-They still NEED proper fish requirements, such as cycling the tank correctly, weekly water changes, feeding, temp, ect.

The bowls are the worst, and you can get large 20-40 gallon tanks at Petco for cheap-They have all time sales for fish tanks, price rises every gallon so you can get a 50 gallon tank for 50 bucks

Smaller tanks (especially bowls) are harder to keep the temp right, and even to clean-

Birds are pretty self explanatory, but seem to get more proper care somehow-Parakeets tend to get it a little bad, but have died in demand over the years honestly.

Guys, just please, PLEASE, do your research
