Says you.  I challenged somebody in a thread yesterday.  Oddly they didn't respond.  I will have to assume they are contacting their second to deliver their answer for them.

1. Passing out to express your emotions

I usually just do that to express my drunkness.

Why would you do that unless you already know them personally? That's creepy. Let people have their privacy

You have your privacy... in your own home.

Saying hello to people in the street is PUBLIC, also it used to be good manners because there weren't millions of us in each city. Your town might have only had a couple tens or hundreds of residents. Saying hello would only be polite manners

One of my favorite D&D artworks was a module where the guy on the cover is being attacked by an opponent with a sword in a tavern and he is parrying with a loaf of bread.

A dinner duel in bed sounds amazing.

That's sad. Please, whats's wrong with a brief eye contact, a smile, and acknowledegment of another human being?

If you don't want to deal with other people, don't go outside.

And don't visit my town. We smile and wave at drivers who stop for us at zebra crossings.

1. Passing out to express your emotions - we all have a Drama Queen in the family
2. Wiping your hands on the dinner table - and rolling your eyes at forks - Chuck E. Cheese
3. Dueling to sort out conflicts - that's what lawyers are for.
4. Suppressing smiles in photographs - all the rage at DMV
5. Having dinner parties in bed - "600-pound Life" is a depressing show

Seriously.
I smile, say hello, etc. at folks in Washington DC.
People think I'm a nut
And they're right.
But that town is full of grey-suited, stuffy assholes, too.
Nothing wrong with spreading kindness, though. You never know what other good stuff it can put in motion.

I'm with you.  Here in New Orleans, it's totally acceptable and welcome to say hello to anyone walking down the street.  I go back to my hometown of Chicago and people think you're a creep or something.  Now that I've been here in NOLA for 10+ years, it's sort of a reverse culture shock.  I never realized people are so... dismal... in Chicagoland.

I used to favor the "nearly imperceptible head nod" - almost a tic - to people passing by on the sidewalk with whom I exchanged eye contact.  Just to be friendly.  I don't bother anymore; most people are engaged in the very perceptible head nod of staring down at their f*cking phones and about to get hit by cars.  Being a witness to that would just be too time-consuming to bother with.

True.
Sometimes the culture is don't bother.
I'll still do it. People look at me funny, but I don't care.
I find the head nod to be a great sign of 'back the fark up' as a woman.
Stare right into their eyes, and nod.
It intimidates the creepos right back.
 
2017-11-04 04:12:08 PM  
Of course we don't challege each other to duels anymore.  That's how we end up with things like tomacco and rap musicals.

How about some obscure table manners? In my family I was taught that it was bad manners to butter an entire dinner roll and then eat it. The only proper way to do it was to break off a bite sized chunk, butter that as necessary and eat it, then repeat that for the rest of the roll. As an adult I've only ever observed one other person following that rule and he was 25 years older than I am.

GTFO with that passive-aggressive "poor me" bullshiat. Don't even pretend for a second you didn't use the term "lib" as an insult, which you then used to mark me "irrelevant".

Your regressive ilk has perfected "playing the victim" because you aren't getting used to getting your sexist shiat called out, so you whine about getting insulted. Tables have turned grandpa. You're a dying breed.

Nah, I don't think it's an insult. You intended it to be an insult, and are now playing the game of passive-aggressive condescending nonchalance.

Whenever I see someone use 'lib' or 'libtard' in a dismissive, derogatory connotation, like you did, I chalk it up as a compliment and as a sign of how regressive that person (you) is.

Thank you for confirming the hypothesis.
