    I feel like you're holding onto the specific term tragedy. The greatest downfall one could have. That's not what I mean. '...distress, suffering...' as a shit moment in one's day. I assume if you can't the Obama joke, you're maybe a racist or homophobic, because a brown man can't be aesthetic...that's naive, ignorant, and now you're the butt of the joke. The woody allen joke(there's a lot to unpack and get sidetracked on) is the same self deprecating joke where MY(2nd person) suffering is paid for by the laughter.

    if we both get it, sure. But the idea that semantics or pronunciation have an inside joke mean that someone else is not smart enough or included in the group to 'get it'.

    I learned the hard way jokes. I like the 'social capital' reasoning part of the prompt.

    Yourself (3rd person) as the object doesn't change the premise that someone has to be the belittled individual or concept.

    My better half working, in retail produce would be so enamored about this thread. She dislikes going to other stores, but if we're in self checkouts, she; who can't be decisive about is it raining; is totally on point as I try to weigh and identify products with the angry eyes of the next persons waiting.

    Been playing HyperDash VR for a few months now every few days. I'm a pretty unrefined gamer tbh, but have enjoyed the gameplay quite a bit. The only drawbacks are 1: I'm a not as quick or experienced as other users, 2: there are way too many children(7-12yrs old) playing; this is quite tiresome when there are kids literally screaming their reactions. 3: users aren't equally matched up. I get my ass kicked by those same kids @ lvl99 .

    All in all though gameplay does outweigh those drawbacks. You can mute individuals or opponents, or everyone entirely. That part is great to just let you play.

    Oooh yeah, I linked the correct song for my contribution.

    To give perspective; this is the 'hold music' for an art gallery I have to call sometimes. Maybe that's why I take such offense to it.

    My cringe about it, is its lack of structure, how slow and the crappy story is. And the kill me reference was to what I expect ramona to say, because that's what I want every time I hear this.

    Your experience isn't what I expected as a response, and am glad that you did respond. I can't imagine the eye rolling garbage you've had to endure. I didn't mean to make a affront that this guy/band should stop writing and playing... it's just that I can't begin to have any appreciation for this...and it's use as a 'hold call' interlude.

    The list could go on; access to clean water, basic shelter, nutritious food, transportation, a supportive community, an UNCONDITIONALLY ACCEPTING & LOVING FAMILY... living without fear of violence for being profiled by authorities...being dismissed for not having monetary equity...ONE person in the world, settling for you AND all your flaws; that you are able to accept too...like I said, the list is never ending.
