Unanswered Do I have extremely low bar or are people on subreddits like r/amiugly really good looking?


I find people that post on subreddits like amiugly mostly (like 90% of them) are really good looking the other 10% either should just work on their fashion choices or not my type but not ugly. Which frustrates me and sometimes the comments are really harsh towards people who I find really good looking. Do I have extremely low bar or do some people have expectations that are really high?

Answered Was there really a game in the 90’s where you punch someone when you spot a Volkswagen Bug?


I was a young kid growing up through the 90’s - my mom used to punch the shit out of my arm and exclaim “SLUGBUG!” every time she saw a VW Bug on the road.

Did my mom invent some sort of latent child abuse or did other 80s/90s babies get punched while just fucking listening to meatloaf in the car?

Do people seriously not think drinking every night of the week is a problem?


Do heavy drinkers, I wouldn't quite say alcoholics but I may be wrong, really not think going to the bar every night is bad for them?

EDIT: I'm not trying or wanting to judge these people. I just genuinely didn't understand their thoughts on it.

Is it OK to start on a treadmill by walking? I'm too unfit to run.


In the last two/ three years I've gradually become obese. I didn't realise until last year, when I was in a mental-health hospital, how much weight I've put on. I've put on 5/6 stone.

I tried to run on the treadmill, but I fell off. I thought I would be fine, but I damaged my back, and arm.

I need to do some exercise, but I'm far too unfit to do any running. Can I start by walking?

Edit: Thank you to everyone that answered. I'm really sorry, but I don't have time to answer all comments. I can't swim, unfortunately. However, I may try to learn, when I can afford it. I am going to try and do the coach to 5K. I don't know if I'm going to be able to do it, but I'll try. I have spoken to someone at my gym, and they are going to show me some tips to help me on my way.

Do they think about random stuff or are they always 100% attentive or is it a zen like meditative state waiting for something to trigger their spidey sense?

Would you use an app that lets you discover unknown art from people who have passed away?


I mean, think about it. There must be so much good stuff out there that is basically unknown, especially from people who are longer with us. This app could be a way to honor those who have passed away but left something behind, some kind of amazing art: a song, a book, a poem, a painting….

Is there any difference between different types of pasta like spaghetti, fetuccine, spirals, shells etc, other than the shape?


They're all the same thing right, they're just shaped differently?

Edit: I'm thinking about when I go to the grocery store and there's 15 different packets, but they basically all look the same colour, they're just shaped differently.

Can anyone recommend YouTube channels that teach the basics of learning makeup for someone who’s never learned how?

Why don’t movie studios make the boom mics green?


I was watching a tik tok that showed the boom mic breaching the frame in Avengers Endgame, a movie with a massive budget. I just feel like an easy fix to this would be to make the boom mic green like the green screen shade so that it can easily be edited out.

Why do I find it hard to feel proud about my achievements?


I feel like I've made so much progress, I'm definitely not the person I was a year ago. However, progress I've made feels pointless somehow because I can't bring myself to feel proud about it. What could this be? I have a few theories, but I'd like to hear what you think. Thanks :)

Do Ambulances and Fire Trucks get gas like every other vehicle?


This is a question for US, perhaps even NY. Call me nuts but I feel like I’ve never seen a fire truck or ambulance at a gas station. Is there something I’m missing? Do they get their gas differently or is it just odds.
