• Why does our clock have 24 hours?

    Because If we divided our day into 60 seconds in a minute, 48 minutes in an hour, and 30 hours in a day, that comes up to 86,400 seconds in a day, which is just as long as what we have currently with 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, and 24 hours in a day.

    Because If we divided our day into 60 seconds in a minute, 48 minutes in an hour, and 30 hours in a day, that comes up to 86,400 seconds in a day, which is just as long as what we have currently with 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, and 24 hours in a day. So who decided that we were better off with a day consisting of 2 twelve hour periods, instead of 2 fifteen hour periods? (I'm only using 15 hours as an example of something else it could have been. I don't actually think that's the way it should be) Thanks!

  • Is it wrong that I want to move back to Ireland when I turn 18 in year ?

    Best answer: No it's not wrong. But you need to discuss it with your parents calmly.

    Think carefully about all the pros and cons. Seeing your family and friends. Not seeing your parents. Where would you live? A job or uni? Who would pay for your upkeep?

  • I don't understand how other people grow up by themselves?

    Best answer: "Parenting" on this level was usurped by the educational system, with the government behind it, pulling the strings.

    Best answer: "Parenting" on this level was usurped by the educational system, with the government behind it, pulling the strings. Your parents were, if like most people, busy and consumed with just trying to stay afloat one day to the next, working, where taxes eat them up like a parasite.

    You were not taught those things in order to make you dependent upon government. It is designed to make you a compliant little minion.

    Sometimes, rarely, some people start to wake up from this induced trance. You are starting to see, but you are responding with a "conditioned response" where it was your parent's fault, especially if they have conservative leanings.

  • Why change the date, why not change the name?

    Changing the name from Australia Day to Invasion Day would please everyone. The Aborigines could let loose in a sea of self-pity, the bogans could indulge in a whole day of chest-thumping and flag-waving, the inner-city bleeding hearts could spend the day doing what they like best: scolding the Anglos.

    Basically back in 9th grade high school I was classmates with this girl who I always found cool and interesting. She became famous on vine , and by the time I was in 11th grade I was in class with her again. I REALLY admired her confidence , her creativity.. when she always spoke against racism and spoke for lgbtq people in school I just admired her more.. Until I realized she was fake.. She wouldn't talk about racism in front of her white audience and wouldn't bring up black lives matter and all the activism. She used to bash veganism but now she's vegetarian and preaches about it. She just listens to whatever is popping rn and acts like a fan. She done and said a lot of hypocrital things that her fans defend as "jokes" I did something stupid by going on a forum and telling people all of what I'm writing now.. People were just skeptical of me and saying people change and aren't who they were in the past. I AGREE. But that girl is a hypocrite and no one believes me. I used to keep checking her social media and I thought it was because I was jealous, but I realized it was because she was my role model and seeing how she wasn't who I thought really hurt me. So yeah I need to let go of that hatred I have but everytime I seem like I'm doing good I see her face in a vine compilation, and I get worried about people reading what I wrote in the forum and thinking I don't make sense and I'm wrong.
