The amount of people I’ve heard say:
“We’ve come all this way, what time do they come on?” Is staggering.
Solid brown fur cats, apparently it’s some kind of recessive gene in them.
Blimps. I live in northeast Ohio near the Goodyear hangar. We see them all the time. I had to pull up a list, that northeast Ohio has 3 out of 4 operating Goodyear blimps named Wingfoot 1 2 and 3; Only maybe 12 are operating anywhere in the world, with a total of 25 existing at all. But we see them all the time at Wingfoot lake disc golf course. Edit: Helium filled semi-rigid airships.
We have a male tortoiseshell cat. Cat people tend to know they’re quite rare but others probably don’t.
An honest politician.
A stable, loving, peaceful domestic life.
Absolute silence and being in a place where no man made light exists.
Bit of peace and freaking quiet.
The percentage of people with eating disorders that are underweight (5% of suffers).
Critical thinking skills.
Deaths from nuclear power.
Pollution from coal power kills more people *every day* than nuclear power has in its entire history.
Kids getting kidnapped by random strangers in public. My parents always acted like every adult on the street was a potential abductor and that child kidnapping was rampant, but I never knew anyone who actually got kidnapped and the statistics really don’t back up their level of anxiety. I’m in my mid-twenties now, and they still act like I’m gonna get attacked by some rando on the street at any moment. Based on personal experience and statistical evidence, I am much more afraid of violence from those I am close to than I am of strangers.
Man to man compliments I remember about my 7th grade year. It was probably 1994. Me and my friends started telling each other we love you man. Being good friends with a other dude and telling them you love them. That is more rare then anything. We got obnoxious. We just kept telling each other bro I love you. No bro I love you more. No bro your the f*****g man more then me. It was so silly, but still today I think about it and smile. I still miss and love my boys. I try to compliment men and tell them they are killing it s much as I can. Any compliment is amazing. I usually do some dumb s**t like. Damn bro your killing it.
Having loving and supportive parents and a good home life growing up.
I think this Stereotype is pushed a lot by Hollywood and TV, because writers tend to be people who’s creativity was nurtured by their supportive parents and they write what they know.
It’s why almost every family on TV lives in a picturesque suburbia, maybe with a pool, two loving parents and a comfortable life.
My son and I have been discussing this lately. He is a chemical engineer and works exclusively with water. Many of the studies he has been published on also have to do with clean water and forever chemicals. Water is a huge issue that is becoming bigger everyday and normal people are forgetting about it.
Flint Michigan is in year 9!
The time that you have with your close ones before it passes away.
People who have the patience and desire to accommodate the needs of the disabled.
Ask me how I know. :(
Empathy. When people want to and are able to understand the experience of another human being, without projection of own ideas and experiences onto others.
Good, honest friends who don’t have ulterior motives. The ones that genuinely enjoy your company and friendship. Hold onto them!!!
Humility and an understanding that we’re sometimes the victim and sometimes the perpetrator. No one is ever just one or the other.
People who remain friends with you once you leave school.
People in genuinely happy, healthy, well adjusted relationships.
