I mean, their premise isn’t wrong. Children are awful, they will discriminate based on race if there is more of one skin colour but they’ll discriminate based on anything their very very very very short experience with life tells them is “weird” which to them just means “not something I’ve seen as often as other things”
You have buck teeth? Discriminated
You are white in an all black kindergarten? Discriminated
You hold your spoon slightly differently? Discriminated
It’s awful but it’s how children just are because they have existed for a very short amount of time, not because they are “racist”
Learning to not be that way is just part of growing up, it’s a phase that needs to be grown out of, not skipped, if that experience isn’t part of a persons growth one way or the other they won’t know how to deal with it happening in a serious environment internally.

As far as I’m aware Ra is just another way of symbolising rankine. There are 2 other systems that start with R, one is romer which is Ro and raeumur which is Re. From what I know you use R for all three when each is alone or with C/F and use the second letter to tell the difference when comparing them

this falls under the term "unsolicited goods"
you can keep such without worrying about being sued or arrested.
actually if they come back and try to make you pay for it THEY are committing a crime,
trying to force someone to pay for something they didn't "solicit" is illegal.
Now if this was real full package with someone else's listed address and name on it then it would be categorized as a mistaken package, which you are supposed call the shipping company and tell they got wrong. If, after doing that, they don't send someone to get it back within a reasonable amount of time, as far as I'm aware they cant sue you for keeping it. In the case they accidentally give you someone else's package the law is written so that you aren't to be inconvenienced by the mistake of the shipping company.
-
that, however, doesn't apply here, this is unsolicited goods, the person ordered something and received things they didn't solicit and are therefor not obligated to return or pay for the goods.

quick reminder that the british royal family's house used to be named "Saxe Coburg and Gotha" but in 1917 they changed it to windsor so it didnt sound german

I want this, but knowing how the laws are written this might be illegal under a similar law to cane swords being illegal

Looking at the internet archive it’s been removed all month, assuming the date in the picture is the post date I’d assume tit quickly got flagged and removed
However I will say, there are papers that are about topics that would fit this title that aren’t senseless attacks on normal people with reasonable opinions on our chaotic existence. Those papers speak of literal extremist groups using the guise of mischief/trolling tactically to try to make hating on someone for things like race or ethnicity more acceptable. Actually groups of hateful people trying to slowly convert further and further away from hateful people into people that are accepting of hatred.
These groups are tiny, and likely not a threat except for them personally hurting someone else, but it’s something that should be noted, something that should not be allowed to go unnoticed.

this is not true for F, F has a similar 0-100 but one that aligns nicely to human dealings with air temperature
which equates out to weather, which a very large amount of people actively check daily.
it makes a very nice easy to deal with set up where, going from 100 down, you hit the point "comfortable for most people at about 30 away from the top of the 0-100 and then get less and less "widely comfortable" until you hit the same distance from the top of the scale that comfortable is, but from the bottom of the scale with freezing weather outside being situated at about 30 degrees away from the low end of the scale making the whole thing a nice clean 0-100 sliding scale for weather with very easy to remember points that easily represent something that people actually will have some USE for.

there are multiple reasons why F is basically the only measurement system from imperial that's better than its metric equivalent
F is more precise, in general you'll have many spots of "equivalency" where, when using whole numbers like most people do, a change in F wont be shown as a change in C, C's gaps between whole numbers is larger and therefor less precise.
Another big point in favor of F is as follows
generally people herald C as being super amazing because it makes a nice easy 0-100 scale that humans can easily deal with for water temperature with 0 being freezing for water and 100 being boiling for water. This is never used by another outside of a children's science class. When freezing water people throw it in the freezer and wait and then later see if it froze, no measuring. To boil water people do the same with the stove, the nice clean easy for the human brain to deal with 0-100 has no purpose for 99% of the population in C.

also im realizing coming back to this comment section that they likely wouldnt just put it straight in their mouth, they'd taste it and, being basically a soap pod, they would probably not even do more than break it open, smell it, and lick it before they threw it out and labeled it as "not food"
on the topic of IQ tho
i would really like to see an experiment done where a group of primates, be it gorillas or chimps or whatever, are taught sign language as an entire group and then a generation later the children being taught the language both from their parents and humans which later is used to give them something akin to a formal human child's education. See how far their understanding can go. Do it a few times with the same group of primates generation after generation and see if you can eventually get a group of them that understand what we teach in highschool at the same level as your average human student

well, they would be in danger of eating tide pods but only the first gorilla to do it in each information sharing group, they dont have the benefit of knowing contextually what "Tide" is or what laundry is

horses sleep standing, laying down for a full sleep session could be lethal to them.
id assume their horse bits would be standing but the human bits would be laid up against a taller version of one of those things

it would be more than eyelid shape, more like bone structure which we cant really fix tho it seems like, based on the artificial eyes thing, they seem to think their actual eyeballs are "wrong" which seems to be closer to dysmorphia rather than dysphoria, tho i wouldnt be suprisied if a professional headshrink was to say that the dysmorphia stemmed from the dysphoria being dealt with incorrectly and unhealthfully. From what ive read in the past about the topic, while surgery is a thing they do and is a thing generally accepted to be an actual solution to the problem, a big part of the treatment is also a lot of therapy related to exactly what this post is on about, letting the dysphoria dictate activity, rather than the activity being crafted to help deal with the dysphoria.

idk much about the topic but assuming that the stuff that trans people take during transition to get more of the hormone they need is a liquid, ive heard it or i guess more accurately read it referred to as "T shots, E shots" so i assume its a liquid in a needle, wouldnt THAT be "gender fluid" that's "changed" regularly?

just to give some perspective on this from the "point of view" this post person is wrongly ascribing to my people
Im assuming she's on about the whole "well you cant celebrate the 4th of july because its celebrating natives being killed, oppressed, kidnapped, removed from our homelands, etc"
we celebrate the 4th of july too. Big gatherings of extended family are a fairly large "thing" in our culture to the point one of the most common kinds we do in my tribe has its own wikipedia page
[link in next comment]
the 4th is a perfect excuse for that because its a widely observed holiday and a lot of places are closed on the 5th too giving a really good excuse for having the gathering last into the dark hours and still drive home afterwards since many dont have to worry about getting up the next day.
-
side note: It's gotta be divine humor that this person's post about white people being racist actively implying that a minority racial group observing a cultural event are ignorant children.

"without zero hesitation"
the way this is worded accidentally makes her statement basically
"if you hesitate to celebrate the 4th of July full blown you X"
also
"a hillbilly redneck" is an oxymoron
a hillbilly is a rural county person who lives, you guessed it, in the hills isolated from the rest of the world, the kinda place where your closest neighbors a drive away.
a reckneck is a rural country person who lives either in a small town community or very close to a small town community. To be a hillbilly redneck you would have to live both in the backhills of the country isolated from other people and also either in a town with or very close to other people.
not to mention that "redneck" as a term has an entire culture around it and "hillbilly" as a term has a different entire culture around it.

To expand on this and what purplepumpkin said above
technically there isnt an age of consent in the US, the federal government doesnt touch it, federally there is no such thing as an age of consent, however ever state has their own age of consent the same way that japan has every region giving their own age of consent. It's just that the US doesnt have a federally required minimum that the states cant go under.

Rankine, where kelvin is Celsius but it starts at absolute zero, is fahrenheit but starts at absolute zero.
The main thing that separates Kelvin and Rankine is that Rankine is more "precise" which is to say, using Celsius and Fahrenheit as examples
22 Celsius is 71 Fahrenheit. 23 Celsius is 73 Fahrenheit. Fahrenheit is more precise in that the space between 2 adjacent whole numbers in it is a smaller temperature change than than the space between 2 adjacent whole numbers in Celsius. The same is true of the difference between Rankine and Kelvin.

just a bit of advice when it comes to fuck ups like this, dont try to play it off. People tend to be understanding about nerves, especially being nervous about stuff like this. If this dude had just been honest and said something like "im sorry, im really nervous and your name has a couple letters in common with it, i meant to say your name"
she probably would have understood.

At least it wasn’t kept long enough to form a strong bond and have it’s little heart broken, maybe it’s lucky enough to just see it as having been a nice little holiday rather than a failed escape attempt or an abandonment
