Deep fried pickle? Like, in batter? My first thought was "Dafuq, that's sick... " - immediately followed by "Hmmm... or is it?"

In Germany in school I never heard about any other german victims of the Nazis but jewish and communist Germans. And that was like "communist germans and Jews.". Not "German-jewish people or anything". And Romani or Sinti (more western and middle European Romani) were never ever mentioned. It took until a feww years ago (!!) to even acknowledge that Romani people were victims, but it's still not widely acknowledged how many Romani people have lived in Germany for centuries.

You're right, that's the same story. I leave it to our Syrian and Lebanese friends to feel uncomfortable with this ;.-)
.
Btw: the Romani part of my family is from Czechia as well. My grandfather came to Austria in the early 1920s, but I never met him, he died before I was born. His story and background were NEVER part of any family conversation. I only learned it thru some racial slurs I got in my Grannys neighborhood when we visited her as kids. My family background in Austria is deepest white trash plebs, so "family history" never was a topic anyway. I have a deep and probably epigenetic favor for Lautari music though lol. Oh, and lots of Romani people here in Hamburg recognize the trait in me. Not kidding. I used to get addressed in romanian quite a lot, when I was in the right/wrong parts of the city where Romani families ran certain illicit trades.

/ctnd. Traditionally, Romani people are prudish, and this type of depiction represents the opposite of their values. Otoh, as Romani people in general were always poor, a significant number of Romani girls were lured away from their families and trafficked into prostitution, reinforcing the stereotypes and ideas of western european men.
Don't get me wrong, many artists had very good intentions, trying to present Ronani people as beautiful, happy and pleasant people, but still this leaves an uncomfortable feeling, watching pictures like that. Especially now, cionsidering how effed up most Romani are after end of the cold war. They were probably the only people in the eastern european countries who had a better live during real existing socialism years. Resulting in way more human trafficking and forced prostitution... but that's another story…

Ok, so I partly have a Romani (not romanian) family background, so I'm not entirely comfortable with this kind of un-official genre, the "Sexy Gypsy Girl" paintings, that became quote popular in the 19th century until way into the 20th. Romani people have been discriminated against in the eastern european countries they have been living in, for like centuries.Western Europeans started idealizing them as "pure and natural country people" as opposed to the over-civilized city dwellers, and pictures of Romani farmers and their families became quite popular. Also, Romni (female Romani) were depicted more and more lewd and sexy, like the picture here. Pretty much all of these pics show very young girls in lascivious poses, showing daring cleavage and lot of naked skin. Many of these pics - not this one - are bordering soft porn. This changed the image "civilized" people, esp. men had about Romni, the stereotype of the "hot blooded, sexy gypsy" became quite dominant. ctnd.

That's probably the equivalent to white tourists with "exotic" tattoos in thai or chinese that actually translate to something like "Peruvian Underwear Porridge" or "me clueless bignose"

From an article on Forbes: "The recommendation algorithms on social media might be complex and somewhat mysterious, but they generally favor engagement; thus, controversy, followed by mass-mockery, is an ideal way to attract an incredible amount of attention.
I’d be surprised if Shapiro himself didn’t understand this contradictory dynamic, and actively seek public humiliation, on a regular basis, for the sake of his career." The guy makes quite a living from being the obnoxious debate club Dominatrix he is.

Actually, that's way easier than cultivating a mainstream bonsai tree. There's tons of Bonsai Buddage pics all over the interwebs. Looks extra yummy and thicc af though...

Retail warrior for some 15 years, so...

German Karens like to say "But customer's always king?!" which I usually counter with "You know what happened to most kings during history, right? Got chased off, when they were lucky."
.
There's a popular saying among retail workers: "Every customer makes you smile: some when they enter, most when they leave"

Pure xtc will NOT cause that face, it makes you pretty chilled and relaxed, even though the molecule is related to amphetamine.

Doesn't everyone hate side quests? Are there games with interesting side quests? Honestly curious, cause I never played any game that's been made the last 20 years.

MY first thought exactly.. however, maybe that's a place where $50 is a huge amount of cash and where bread rolls for breakfast are extremely luxurious or they are gluten&gender-free, handcrafted, elderflower-scented croissants from a bakery specialized in scamming... ehh... serving hipster customers.
