Can we get a r/insanepeoplereddit?: Posted by 486 Proposed to girlfriend whilst drunk on NYE night, can I cancel and get the ring back? Locked (by mods) | 113 Comments Share : Save Hide Report | 5.1k points · Not been bothering with Reddit over Xmas; but it's nice to come back to an early nominee for "stupidest post of the 3 year", especially so early on. Let me check I've got this straight: You were planning on proposing to a work colleague when you go on holiday, despite the fact you are still seeing someone you class as your girlfriend. However, in a twist of fate, you took that engagement ring out with you on New Years Eve. Either that, or you took the wrong girlfriend out. Either way, mistakes were made. Those mistakes were compounded when you got caught up in the heat of other people's affection, and proposed to your (wrong) girlfriend. And now, you want legal advice on whether you can get the ring back, so you don't have to buy another ring and can instead give your intended fiancée your accidental fiancées' ring. Well, from a legal perspective you're shit out of luck because a gift is a gift, even when given by a moron. However, there is a solution: tell your (current/accidental) fiancée about the mistake. Honesty may actually be your best policy here, because I suspect that the realisation that you are such an utter fungus of a person will lead her to take the ring off and fling it. If you're lucky, you may be able to find it and then can give your ex-fiancée's sloppy seconds to your bit on the side. And what a lucky girl she will be! Can we get a r/insanepeoplereddit?

sirfrogsworth: Apparently, you can’t be a climate activist unless you know how to literally solve climate change.  Some other gems in the comments… “She’s basically Hitler!” “Why isn’t she a seasoned public speaker who can give spontaneous answers to one of the world’s most complicated issues?” “She’s just a propagandist for all of those greedy climate scientists who make an average of $35-50K per year!”  And, my favorite… “Why doesn’t she time travel and sabotage Time Magazine’s printing press?” Being an advocate for the world not ending is exhausting.  But if even one of them reads even the summaries, I will be happy.  Here are the links to the report for anyone interested. They actually improved the website quite a bit from the last time I visited. I don’t even think you need to download PDFs for most of the information.

So, when I saw that she won TIME magazine's person of the year, I figured she has made great strides in combating climate change, and therefore I should probably take notice and take a look into how she is doing it and what she has proposed. Thankfully, I didn't have to look far since many people were posting her greatest hits here on FB. I admit, she appears quite passionate and she makes compelling points that something needs to be done to reverse climate change, all while being critical of everyone that says something needs to be done, but without proposing real world, tangible solutions that can broadly be applied to society. So, I keep watching and waiting for these solutions. As the videos draw to an end, I am yet to see anything of substance. Am I missing the part two of these? What is unique about her brand of activism? Is it just the accent? I am seriously interested in what reaction and results her activism has yielded. Can someone please explain it to me? I do have some issues with her "undeniable facts" and climate change activists, I will do my best to follow-up in the comments and/or other posts. Ben Grelle Yes, why isn't the 16-year old solving this crisis? What the hell, dude? Greta submitted the IPCC report as her testimony before Congress. That is what she bases her science on (as well as 99% of climate scientists) and that is where she asks people to go to look for the data and some of the solutions. (We won't have all the solutions as much of the research and emerging tech isn't well funded yet.) I don't think it is her responsibility to solve this. She is asking politicians to take this seriously. And she is inspiring a new generation to not be apathetic on this topic. That is what her activism is based on. And I think that is plenty. If you really want to look at the "real world" solutions, you can read the same report she did. There are 3 parts. The "summaries for policymakers" are the easiest to understand and a good place to start. You may need to download some PDFS. https://www.ipcc.ch/sr15/ https://www.ipcc.ch/report/srccl/ https://www.ipcc.ch/srocc/home/ sirfrogsworth: Apparently, you can’t be a climate activist unless you know how to literally solve climate change.  Some other gems in the comments… “She’s basically Hitler!” “Why isn’t she a seasoned public speaker who can give spontaneous answers to one of the world’s most complicated issues?” “She’s just a propagandist for all of those greedy climate scientists who make an average of $35-50K per year!”  And, my favorite… “Why doesn’t she time travel and sabotage Time Magazine’s printing press?” Being an advocate for the world not ending is exhausting.  But if even one of them reads even the summaries, I will be happy.  Here are the links to the report for anyone interested.

"capitalism as we know it will never end": [-] VietStamm 5 poeng 16 dager siden Youre trying to go from 0-100 and thats unrealistic. Capitalism as we know it will never end, only change, and thats what yang is proposing. I actually dont even understand WHAT youre proposing to be the answer, but youre stating that yangs idea is outlandish for some reason, kinda seems like you heard someone say he was bad and now youre just running with it. Incremental changes, dude. permalenke embed lagre foreldre rapporter give award svart 1 poeng et minutt siden (0 barn) [+] MLPorsche [-] RachelTheEgg 11 poeng 16 dager siden* Youre trying to go from 0-100 and thats unrealistic. The only positive change that's ever happened in the world resulted from societies going from 0 to 100, despite naysayers warning them that they're being unrealistic. Capitalism as we know it will never end, only change Every great economic system that has ever existed has ended at some point or another. Feudalism ended, slavery ended, state communism ended (mostly). Capitalism will end. What remains to be seen is whether it will end by our own will, or by catastrophe. I actually dont even understand WHAT youre proposing to be the answer A guaranteed minimum standard of living. Providing everyone with the basic necessities of life with no questions asked, no means-testing, and no ruling-class gatekeepers. Libertarian UBI is a step in the opposite direction. permalenke embed lagre foreldre rapporter give award svar [-] VietStamm 7 poeng 16 dager siden Andrew yang is offering a thousand a month no questions asked, no means testing and no gate keepers. Everyone is included. Youre delusional if you think its a step in the WRONG direction. UBI is LITERALLY a minmum standard of living. Unless you plan on starting a revolution tomorrow morning, id say Yangs UBI is the best movement for the time being. Youre looking at the end goal, im talking short term. At some point you gotta stop talking about fantasy on the internet and actually talking about current solutions, amd UBI is a viable one atm. If we could destroy modern crony capitalism tomorrow, i would be agreeing with you. But we cant yet. So now were here. "capitalism as we know it will never end"
