Which hill are you willing to die on?
#1
To 'die on a hill' is an English phrase that basically means you're willing to stand by an opinion or statement, no matter how unpopular it is or how many people are against you.

For me it's child abuse. You should never, ever, ever hit your child, no matter the circumstances. The amount of damage physical abuse leaves on your child is irreparable. There is always a better way. You can try to fight me on this, I'll never change my mind.

So, what kind of hill are you willing to die on?

Its hard for me to think of one. I'm quite undecided about a lot of topics and even things I strongly believe in probably have exceptions where they don't apply.

I think the issue of child abuse is interesting because people are always against hitting children but more subtle forms of abuse such as psychological abuse (possibly more damaging) are never spoken about.

The cured pork breakfast product native to New Jersey is called Taylor Ham, not pork roll.

Also, the crap that is mainstream regular peanut butter (Jif, Skippy, Peter Pan; U.S. brands) is not actually regular peanut butter because peanut butter should never contain added sugar, added saturdayed fats, and trans fats. Actual regular peanut butter should just contain peanuts and salt (if you want).

no, i'm in the wrong era. the dumbing down is too serious here. sometimes it feels like everyone is a stupid idiot. i'm not calling out anyone in particular. just saying. the fact that people use the internet as an excuse to justify being a fuckhead idiot is proof enough. i guess another good example is in that one country they have a complete dullard running for president and everyone just makes jokes about it. we have thousands of videos on the net of people recording their selves doing stupid shit like setting their self on fire or being a bastard to someone else or a harmless animal. even basic things like two people greeting each other is a rarity in many places.

there is no such thing as a human being anymore. we deserve to be destroyed.

My government killed a man for no reason. They had no proof he was involved in 9/11 no one even charged him with it. He was never indicted, arrested or tried for the 1998 bombings but was gunned down like a dog in the street. One day we will find out the truth about 9/11.

I strongly believe that most of what people tend to call "intellectual property rights" are a bad thing that provides no benefit to society and should be eliminated; the only salvageable form of IP I've ever seen are trademarks.
I believe that any sexual activity between consenting people (and that implies the ability and maturity to consent) is only those people's concern and should never be the matter of government regulation; that goes from regulations against some kinds of porn to regulations against incest.
And talking about maturity, I also believe that, while minimum ages for various things are a necessity due to a lack of a better easily-measurable predictor1 of a person's maturity, they aren't particularly relevant to people whose maturity you can ascertain directly — and as a result, any statement such as "kids shouldn't do <X> until they are <N> years old" is almost certainly a wrong rule to follow for your own kids, who you should be able to know better than through an age calculation.
I think that most forms of local conventions (language, time zones, calendars, units of measurement, driving on the left/right...) are doomed to disappear sooner or later ­— for the greater good of us all.

But most importantly, I think that pineapple on pizza tastes awesome. Fight me.

1A predictor is a variable you can measure used to approximate (i.e., predict) the value of a variable you cannot. For instance, you cannot directly measure a person's performance in a certain task until they actually execute that task repeatedly, but you can test them and get test results that correlate more or less strongly to their performance — so if the test results do correlate strongly to their performance, you'd say that test scores are a good predictor of performance.

I agree but how would time zones disappear? Don't they exist because the sun rises and sets at different times in different places?

Yes, but correlation between solar time and civil time is slowly eroding. One hundred years ago, timezones were extremely granular, to the point of having five-minute differences (or even less!) between nearby cities just so that civil time would align with solar time — this is known as local mean time (LMT), and it refers to the timezone that matches up exactly with solar time at some point on Earth. Nowadays, most of the world rounds LMT to the nearest hour, and even accepts one- or two-hour differences from LMT, just so that time will be consistent within their country and with the rest of the world; we've gone from hundreds of timezones to less than forty (not including DST variations).

In the end, the number we assign to a certain point in time is a convention, and so is much of the daily cycle. We work here from 9:00 to 18:00 because that's the standard; if we suddenly decided to use UTC, we'd work from 12:00 to 21:00, have lunch at about 16:00, and so on, and not a single thing would have changed in our lives. Hours are meaningful because we give them meaning; that meaning can be changed.

You can see this change in work hours in far western China where noon is at 2pm - 3pm.

How do you define "modern" song? Is it just any song made recently, or it has to be a new-ish genre like rap/EDM?

And by "song" do you mean the original meaning as in music with lyrics, or just any music even without lyrics?

I mean I don't like modern songs in general.

Look, you can call me ignorant all you want, but the fact of the matter is I don't generally like modern music. That's just how I am. I've heard plenty of modern popular songs to come to that conclusion.
