What would be the most amazing adventure to go on?

Hunting, in the woods, way off the beaten path. You’ll see some of the most beautiful landscape in the world that very few ever have. The hunting part is what keeps you quiet and way more observant than you would be just hiking.

To die would be a great adventure!

I do it every night. That mystical adventure full of perils and traps.

The trip to the fridge in the middle of the night when your parents are asleep.

Death is the only adventure you have left!

Fellow Americans, How would you feel about eliminating tipping in exchange for providing a livable wage for the service industry?

Wonderful. A tip should be for exceptional service, not the norm.

As an Englishman, I concur. I can't believe waiting staff in the US are paid fuck all and the customer who already paid for a meal has to pay the staff too. That's so fucked up.

I completely agree with this. I don’t think people should be at risk of not getting by if they live somewhere with assholes

I'm all for it; provided restaurants actually pay a living wage. Not minimum wage bullshit. Otherwise you're just giving people who rely on tips a pay cut.

What is the stupidest thing that makes you irrationally angry?

What is the stupidest thing that makes you irrationally angry?

I comment this just about everytime this question comes up.

When people tell me to do something the exact moment before I'm about to do it.

If you told me to take the trash out as I'm reaching for the bag I just get instantly irritated.

People who use ask reddit for questions they could literally google in 2 seconds! (not a dig at OP)

Was recently told the stuff that actually takes place in Washington DC regarding politics is so unreal you likely wouldn't believe it. Redditors who have witnessed crazy DC politics first hand, what are the types of things that made your head spin?

My dad was a lobbyist and he mentions one congressman that flat out told him that he wouldn't talk to my dad for less than $10k. And no, my dad didn't pay. The only bribing he did was bring pizza to the staff whenever he visited since they don't really get paid much.

Decisions on building a monorail are influenced by catchy jingles.

You should probably clarify that. My brother is a lobbyist too, so I know how this game works. A congressperson demanding $10K to go into a campaign fund happens all the time, particularly when the lobbyist is repping an issue that the congressperson is not interested in entertaining. This is kinda a polite way of telling a lobbyist to fuck off without damaging the relationship.

I seriously doubt that the congressperson wanted $10K for him/herself simply b/c nobody is going to risk a felony for such a small sum of money. As a comparison, Rep Duke Cunningham, who was notoriously dirty, took in $2.4M in bribes in one year alone, and most people agree that the FBI/DOJ could only source part of the money. He went to jail for 8 years and a whole slew of other people did too.

That people in this area are so consumed by gaining power, that they use other people to their advantage. They befriend you, make a sad attempt at caring about you and what you do, but in reality, they want to know how much money you make, who you know, and how can you help them get ahead in their power-thirst. Politics people are shitty people. I refuse to talk to anyone who only care about politics.

What is something you've never done, that most people probably have?

I've never broken a bone.

I have never learned how to ride a bike.

When people say "this will be as easy as riding a bike" my brain always immediately thinks "yikes".

I have never snuck out of my house when grounded

You might like them, if you give them a shot. I am a little biased, though.

There's a room in your house where time doesn't flow. You could stay in there for as long as you could possibly want, and not a second will have passed outside that room. What would you use this room for?

Sleep.

Mastur... Master a skill.

so basically, I have a hyperbolic time chamber in my house?

Does time exist in the room seperate to outside? For example, do I continue to age while in the room?

edit: On top of that, while in this room, can I impact the space outside of the room? What if I take a phone into the room. Can I then flood Reddit with shitposts faster than auto mods can respond to?

Watchmen, apparently.

Stardust. Great feel good movie. Doesn't seem to get much attention.

Pacific Rim. Everyone rips it for the shitty romance and lack of plot or consistency and such, but damn if I didn't want to see giant robots fighting giant monsters in super cgi since I was a kid and I saw the '98 Godzilla movie. It's a *sploosh* from me.
