It could hypothetically go:
"Hey you want an orange?" *proceeds to peel orange*
"No thanks I don't want an orange."
"Come on man I already started peeling it. If you don't take it it's gonna go bad. I just wanted to share my orange with ya."
"Fine I'll take the orange."
"Awesome, hey by the way can you spot me some cash? I gave you my last orange so you think you could help me out?"

I would wager in most places this would occur would be "larger cities" here in the US. In those cities you already have homeless or otherwise destitute people doing whatever they can to make a living. Having been to time square in NYC the effort people put into trying to strong arm money out of you is nuts. I had a man attempt to slip a cd into my coworkers pocket and refuse to take it back to guilt him into paying for it. I imagine it could be similar to that of someone handing you a rose then asking for payment or someone "cleaning your windshield" with water and towels at a stop light then asking for money.

Imagine if you will a black woman boards a plane. She goes to sit down. And all she sees is a burger King crown above the seat line. Now imagine the jaws theme begins slowly ramping up. As the music gets more intense the racist man strikes like in jaws.

It's a reference for the tendency in horror films involving sharks for the sharks fin to crest the water line. It makes things more tense. If it weren't for them doing that you'd never know they were there. Basically it's saying that that's the only warning you get that this guy is present before something racist is said.

One thing I would add to your list is the potential of nefarious people hoarding the fruit for monetary gain. It would be hard to police people from mass picking the fruit to sell later at a farmers market or just right off the corner.

This is from a video posted around of a middle aged white man sitting in the seat of an airplane during the boarding process. The man wearing a Burger King crown is shown with his face mask pulled below his mouth whilst he yells racial epithets at a woman. The most famous of his quotes is "Kick that N****r bitch off the plane." Which got memed on several right leaning meme sites. I don't know if he faced any repercussions. I just know what this is referencing.

In the US if you pursue a prostitute you get hit with solicitation charges so you really can't buy sex legally.

The attempt was to discredit radio as a reliable source so that people would return to printed media. As history went along radio surpassed printed media as televised surpassed radio and as internet will surpass televised. The dying media tries its best to discredit the new form of media.

Unfortunately modern historians believe the hysteria was made up. As far as I can tell from my looking into it, which is admittedly surface level, much of the hysteria was played up printed publications.
-
The term Yellow Journalism arises from roughly 40 years prior to the 1938 broadcast. Yellow journalism is similar to our fake news movement of today. Sensationalism is nothing new in our modern era.
-
With that being said new and old media often times have a war between them in the interim between one reigning Supreme. This war was between radio and printed publications. The people of the depression era came to largely accept what was being said on the radio as truthful. Whereas printed media had been known for year to be sensationalist. Printed outlets attempted a character assassination on radio because of how the story was framed. The story was framed as a news bulletin interspiced with interviews and speeches from, an impersonator, the president.

Are you referring to the supposed hysteria the broadcast caused?

The issue is over semantics, as so many an internet argument are. What NYTB should have said was popularized rather than invented. War of the world's amongst the several other science fiction books Wells wrote brought about the genre in popular culture like no one else had before. Mary Shelley largely invented the novel version of science fiction with Frankenstein but throughout history the "genre" existed. In ancient times amongst a, albeit very small, number of Greek authors who played with the ideas of interplanetary warfare and things of the like texts existed. In today's views these texts would be more fantastical than scientific but with the technological development of the age these would very much be in the genre of science fiction.

It wouldn't surprise me if the prosecution isn't throwing the trial. Nothing I've heard from him holds any weight as far as I can tell.

Non-fungible token. As i understand it, it's basically a crypto currency that there's only one of. This currency is often represented by an image of some kind so it's often seen as a meme thing.

If they were fraternal Twins and one was a male, I’d assume the male would be the heir, 7 comments

Okay, I came back to fs roughly an hour ago and saw this comment and did some research. My error comes from my using of the word "is" rather than referring to historic presedence by using "were" in it's place. If I would have done so it would have better portrayed what I had meant.

In this day and age you're correct in your assertion that the majority of monarchical states today aren't following male preference anymore.
-
The numbers are as follows:
24 nations/states have succession laws that gender don't pertain to. (16 of these being under the UK's monarchy)
-
18 nations/states still obtain laws that either only allow male succession or strongly favor male succession.
(You mentioned Spain as the only European country but Lichtenstein also is male succession dominated.)
-
In conclusion you are correct as I fucked up my wording.

It's honestly insane how often in the death of one person entire nations can fall. Peaceful succession of power is a rarity throughout most of history

For anyone who's interested in Lafayette Mike Duncan wrote an excellent book called "Hero Of Two Worlds". I would highly recommend as it gives a hell of a summation of his life and his views of politics.

This leaves out several of the other minor nations who fought for various reasons. Which I could go into if requested. Some examples would be Italy, Romania, Bulgaria, Belgium, Japan, or even Brazil.

Differing schools of thought, most commonly due to country of origin of said historical work, put the emphasis on different countries.
-
For example most of the English speaking world blamed Germany for the war as neither UK and her colonies nor the US would have entered the war if it weren't for German willfull hostility towards neutral nations.
-
In France the war was blamed on Germany for the German government backing the Austria in it's attempts to destroy Serbia.
-
In Russia the war is blamed more on Austria than anyone as if it weren't for the Austrian invasion of Serbia none of it would have happened.
-
As far as I'm aware Germany blames the war on France backing Russia in its claims to defend the Slav peoples.
-
Austria blames Serbia for it's involvement as they believed the Serb government was behind the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand.
-
Lastly the Ottomans joined the war due to a group of reformists sending warships to first strike a Russian port.
