I think I followed it alright haha. It sounds like you've envisioned a fairly rich world for all these mishaps to take place in. Yeesh, being boiled alive in rice by insects and served at a feast. Not the way I'd want to die. It's quite the rabbit hole to journey down at any rate!

How healthcare should be 25 comments

The productive members paid the bill, allowing the generation/continuence of new productive members, who will in turn pay the bills for other non-productive members. It's not so different than getting an insurance policy, it's just mandatory and guaranteed.
A lot of productive members of society in countries without free healthcare can't afford to get treatments they need, which can cause something that might have been a simple fix to turn into a lifelong debilitation, causing them to be unproductive even LONGER, and to likely end up needing assistance anyway.
I don't see why anyone wants to tear down a function in a society that gives people having a hard time a financial break in situations like these. Maybe you don't want it, but the simple solution would be to cancel your plans to move to that country

Your character boils themself alive in a pot of rice? That seems... oddly specific. I'm intrigued

Additionally:
-Your foot, on average, is about the same length as your forearm (wrist to elbow), which is roughly the same length as your face (vertically).
-Your thumb, on average, is roughly the same length as your nose, which is roughly the same length as your ears.
-Your head on average composes about 1/7th of your height. Meaning you should be able to stack seven of your heads on top of each other and the resulting pile would be roughly as tall as you are.

I went to some restaurant in the US that gave you peanuts and the waiter was like "you can just throw the shells on the floor! No, seriously." And then he threw some shells on the floor, and everyone at the table kind of looked at each other, but none of us ended up throwing shells on the floor. It felt weird and unnecessary to do it

There was actually some sort of test or what have you done where a homelessman was given a million dollars, blew it all in very short order, became homeless again, and said he wished he'd never had the money in the first place.
I think it's a misconception that *having* money and knowing how to *keep* money and be responsible with it go hand in hand.

I have no idea what a moomin is, but my brain instantly supplied a Mormon cow, and now I think any other definition might be a huge letdown in comparison.
Also I'm really enjoying how this originally negative comment has turned into interesting/random facts about Finland

-Please do not always taste your food *while* it's cooking if your food contains raw meat..
-Whether garlic makes your chocolate chip cookies better is open for debate

-The weight thing would depend largely on the type of cake your baking I'd think

There are lines everyone has, and there's nothing really wrong with that when it's something truly important. But as you say, penis length, for me as well, is far from a deal breaker.. Within reason. I will admit if a guy had a 12" penis, or an abnormally skinny (like the size of a piece of spaghetti) I'd probably have some second thoughts. But the first scenario puts me in potential actual danger if he's not careful, and the second shouldn't be humanly possible (I would hope).

Haha no worries. It happens to the best of us. Especially those of us like you and me who literally fill two-three comment boxes per post. We should get whoever made that thread about people making long posts in here - we could blow their minds with the sheer length of this discussion, today alone.
I'm not going to pretend I'm not guilty of getting heated haha. It can be especially difficult online because people have no real context for your emotions. There's no tone or anything, and more than once I've realized a joke I made sounded genuinely like I was just being a bitch, and then you're off to the races all over again.
I do agree with you though, as long as people are willing to be a bit more lenient on deciding which hills they want to die on, most people can discuss most subjects amicably. It's when we get stupid about it and decide we have to fight to the death over things like whether cake is better on Tuesdays than Thursdays that we have problems

"Oh. I only like THIS particular wine that comes from this obscure village in France. Sorry. It's a pretty bottle, though."
Considering the value a lot of people place on wine, I wouldn't say the guy necessarily is out of order if he's a little upset by this. I mean, yes, you can say he has the problem for not sucking it up (not literally, unless the situation calls for it) and dealing with it, but the guy now has a potentially ruined bottle of wine he might not be able to resell, potentially a bad memory, and the whole mess could have been avoided if she'd just stated from the start that she only likes that one kind of wine. He'd have been able to say "I don't have that in stock," and they could move on, no harm, no foul. Most normal people I've encountered would be at least a little annoyed/put out by that situation, and that's without even involving their penises
Hopefully this wording makes a bit more sense

I feel like we were both agreeing or making the same point on your first two comments but you said this is where you have trouble following my logic, so I'm not 100% certain if I am misunderstanding something, or if this has to do with us posting more or less at the same time and things just getting lost in the shuffle haha. I'm not sure how to clarify other than saying I agree the person with the problem is the one that should be held accountable in most circumstances, and in this particular one I feel like the girl has the problem in only wanting to have sex with a very specific penis length (<- this feels like a very bizarre sentence to have typed for some reason). Admittedly, the guy could be considered as having the problem for being the one who might be over sensitive, but to me, using your example, that more falls into a scenario where the girl walks into his winery, strongly implies she wants to taste the wine there, and then, after he's already uncorked the bottle, saying

Honestly, the amount of puns in this conversation is getting a little out of hand haha! It has been one of the better debates/conversations I've had on here, or on the Internet in general. Normally they devolve quickly into ridiculousness and petty shots and then you're left there thinking "I don't even CARE about this subject anymore." You usually manage to offer different perspectives on a lot of topics in a rather eloquent manner.
I'll admit when I initially saw it was you responding part of me went "oh shit," because I knew it was about to get real and intellectual on a whole other level, and I wasn't quite sure I was prepared to take you on. In a good way, though. Like 98% in a good way

And it's true, compatibility doesn't lie solely in penis length by far, that's just the issue this post was talking about, and so I was specifically addressing it.
Being terrible in bed is a relative thing a lot of the time it seems, and arguably what constitutes a "large" penis can be relative for people as well, though that just leads me back to "if the girl has a general concept of how small is too small for her, then that's what she should work off of."
True, a guy with a smaller sized penis could announce this to anyone he intends to sleep with, but since most of them might not even have an issue with it, it seem a slightly unnecessary action on his part.

As you say, everyone has the right to dismiss anyone else for whatever reason, but I do think that the bulk of responsibility would lie on the person with the "problem." Just using race as an example, it's not up to an Asian person to ask everyone they meet "hey, are you okay with me being Asian?" If they approach someone, and that person seems amenable enough, it only makes sense they'd assume there isn't a problem unless told otherwise. The person who doesn't like Asians would néed to inform them "sorry, I'm not into you," preferably before getting them naked. Granted, race is (usually) much easier to get a general feel for than penis size, but at least if they have the heads up, when they ARE naked, they'll know to expect it might not work out. If it does, then even better.
I guess it kind of follows the philosophy of an optimist can be disappointed, but a pessimist might be pleasantly surprised.

I understand where you're coming from, although if we take into account the scenario you suggested earlier (meeting a random person at a bar and flirting etc), and then consider that you then presumably left the bar (or are about to be registered on the sex offender list) and went somewhere private, likely kissed among other things, and have now taken off clothes, if sex isn't at least heavily implied by both parties as the end point there, I have no idea what the alternative would be haha. If it's meant to be strip poker, they've missed a couple steps
I do feel there is a bit of a line between physical "limitations" than criminal or financial ones, since criminal and/or financial usually require conscioius choices on the person's part, whereas, unless you're willing to go to extremes, most physical "limitations" can't be rectified. Even bad breath is something that's easy to fix.

Well, I misread days as gays and I was really curious how they'd come to that conclusion

As a side note - the sheer amount of time/length of the comments we've spent talking about penis rejection is both impressive and baffling at this point
