I think the discourse we have here is fantastic, but the bar for entry is set past the point of willingness to inconvenience yourself for the good of society. It's really, really hard to have conversations like this with someone that doesn't even speak the same political language as you

The cult of American individualism has progressed to the point that we can't solve problems when the only solution is collective action sustained over time, even when the solution is as simple as a scrap of cloth over the face.

I don't know how to overcome that inertia. I don't know how to make grown men and women grow up.

Once again, international tensions are making me grateful for my (previously) broken leg and current inability to run more than a mile

The DMZ is still the DMZ - Parts of the border are more heavily fortified than others, and since the whole DMZ is about 2.5 miles wide it varies depending on how close you actually are to the international border. I don't have time to look into it as much as I want to, but apparently there's been some effort to remove landmines and other ordinance in the past decade

Snapchat isn't getting the credit it deserves for holding our nation together right now lmao

I mean, for some people graduating high school is the milestone of their young lives. It's a big, big moment for a lot of people even if it's pretty boring!

And uhhh...Yeah, I mean the missed sex thing is a bit hyperbolic, but surely I'm not the only one that found it kind of relatable? COIVD-19 has absolutely made things a bit harder for a young single lad. The only girl I'm seeing right now has had COVID-19 and tested negative for it twice in a row about a month ago, and since she's a nurse she's pretty on top of her health - one of a few people I feel safe having sex with at the moment. I don't think people are going to go insane for a lack of sex, but a lot of humans do be fucking pretty regularly when they can.

Part of it is, I think, is what my friends and I have been calling "Quarantine Horny." With so much spare time and a lack of socializing, I think the hormones have just been accumulating and people are getting pretty friendly with one another. Who knows, though? I might just have weird friends
