Let me just elaborate. You're trying to justify something by saying "It's not a big deal because it doesn't happen often enough." Sometimes once is too many.

I agree that getting shot or getting into a plane crash is once too many. But those things are also extremely rare.

 

I disagree that sitting next to a fat person on a plane is once too many. I don't think it's that big of a deal.

 

These things should not happen at all. EVER. Essentially, when you're sitting next to someone who occupies even 1% of your seat, they're stealing from you. They're using a space you paid for. If they knows that they're unable to fit his large figure in one seat, the responsibility to make arrangements lies with they. No one else. Whether this happens once per flight, or once a year. There should be no difference. Each passenger has the right to equal comfort in their given seating-class (economy, business, first, etc.). Expecting someone to buy a ticket out of their class because SOMEONE ELSE causes them discomfort is ridiculous.

In an ideal world, that's how things should be. But in the real world, these kinds of things things do happen all the time, and they're going to continue to happen until the day you die. The longer you resist this truth, the longer you'll remain unhappy whenever the world treats you unfairly.

 

Well frankly i don't have to worry about sitting next to a fat person in a plane because whenever i fly it's either first or business, or in the pilot's seat. But that doesn't mean it's not an issue i'd like to change for people who aren't as fortunate as i am. And it's your mentality that prohibits the world from progressing and becoming a better place to live. "Crime will happen. Get used to it. It'll happen till the day you die. No use getting upset over it." If enough people fight together, changes can be made. Or did gay marriage not just become legal?

tl;dr: crime, fat people on air planes, and gay marriage wouldn't really be issues in the first place if everyone had the same mentality as me

Okay, but the argument you linked happened because people with your mentality don't listen when something challenges your preconceptions :v

Would be cool if the next time someone here takes a flight, they could walk down the aisle and check how many people are spilling into other people's seats. Data yo.

yeah and also, if you see anyone spilling into anyone's seats, make sure you ask the obese passenger what their bodyweight, BMI, and bodyfat percentage is. if they don't know, make sure you keep a scale and skinfold calipers on hand. for science. :D

No, what i hate is people getting preferential treatment for some bullshit reason. And having an obese person pay for two tickets is not giving the other person preferential treatment, it's giving him the exact right treatment he paid for. Allowing a fat person to take up his own seat, and any portion (no matter how big or small) of a neighboring seat occupied by someone else is giving the fat person preferential treatment. 

 

But enough of that. I'm already sounding like Mojo-Jojo. Besied it's pretty clear that with my multi-cultural experiences, my views and opinions are likely to be a lot more realistic that the majority of people who probably never even left their own country, or even their own state.

What do you mean?

Sweeping statements about why an entire demographic could do to be happy, while ignoring what they say makes them unhappy, not doing the research on it yourself because it might make you unhappy, and enforcing labels that simply are not adequate... which is part of what makes people in that demographic unhappy. Sort of the same vibe I get from a lot of religious speakers; it feels like it's more about validating your own happiness than it it about helping other people find theirs.

 

Also I'll take notes on passenger demographics next time I have to fly down to Arizona. Would the fact that it's the southwest skew the results, and will they even let me take a pencil on the plane? I'm pretty sure those are more dangerous than bottled water, after all.

As long as you don't put too fine a point on that observation in front of say, the TSA officer at the security checkpoint, I think you'll be fine :-D.

The pencil is probably fine. Just sharpen it before you leave and don't break it because the sharpener probably isn't allowed.

Are you implying that an entire demographic of people are exempt from basic success principles and happiness psychology? >_>

Individuals in various demographics are, yes.

 

But, ya know, we've already established you're not willing to accept that it's worthwhile to try and help equalize society because everyone should just pull themselves up by their bootstraps, so I'm not really sure why anyone bothers with this debate.

Lost my job, already got interviews lined up for another job 2 weeks later.

This is a great time to be looking for a job too. You're gonna get paid so much

 

Yeah a lot of places pay more for the same job I was doing, best time of the year I guess to apply for jobs.

The Canadian federal election campaign officially begins today, with the Election set for October 19th. As of now I'm leaning towards the Conservatives, but the Liberals could win me back over with a well thought out and costed economic plan.

I say I'm in the same boat, but so many things I'd want the libs to change go against their core philosophy...

 

I don't like the conservatives, really...I just think they are by far the best option. Or at least, the least bad option...

This is the story of politics in general.

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Mmmhmm.”

Probably butchered it but that's fine.

 

Kinda sums up what is being said above there.
