the PR lady at my job is a 50-something 'earth mum' type and she keeps going on at me about how her husband is a homeopath and how it 'just works', nobody in her household ever gets ill, her children have never been ill, how can you argue against that etc ...

she's also had a sore throat for the last 3 weeks. she's the only person in the office who is constantly sniffling, coughing or spluttering. I have no idea how she is so delusional.

(note: I know most common cold type symptoms aren't treatable by normal medicine either, but I'm not talking about that)

I've given up arguing with people about it. Lecturing ignorant people is a complete waste of breath because inevitably they just invoke Pascal's wager.

It got to the point that my wife and her mom would immediately glance at me whenever they said something even they knew was stupid. I don't want to be 'that guy' so I just ignore them now unless they start talking about using hocus pocus crap on my son.

I think it's a sign of intelligence not to always debunk people or prove them wrong. lording over people with fact and 'the science' just makes you unpopular – and you're never going to change their mind. gotta pick your battles and faith based medicine/healing is not a strong candidate.

There's nothing hocus pocus about a gluten-free diet, humans really aren't adapted to eat it.

Also, you're wrong about a lot of other stuff.

True, but it is irritating that so many irrationalities have become mainstream recently. Quacks have always been around, and people have always believed nonsense, but between anti-vaxers and people believing gluten is the source of their miasma I sometimes empathize with hermits.

stopped at a light after getting off the highway underneath the overpass, the G35 (presumably) came off the same off-ramp, bumped off a cadillac escalade in the right lane, and smashed into me. i got pushed into a honda accord in front of me, and he got pushed into the accord in front of him. surprisingly, none of us were hurt and all the cars still ran after the accident

That huge gut you have - it could well be a gluten issue.

Unrelated to what you were just talking about with Jay, but is wildly misinterpreting what people say in your "battles" a required activity, or is that just an optional little thing you employ when you want to annoy people?

So CNN has a table for how much you are supposed to tip people for stuff.
http://money.cnn.com/pf/features/lists/tipping/
I just placed an order that came out to $18.36. All I have are $20 and I really don't want to break another one... This poor delivery guy is about to get a $1.64 tip.

Fuck it must be complicated living in America with such arbitrarily stupid 'rules'.

Also who the fuck pays cash for deliveries these days?

you tip 15% on literally everything that "requires" a tip.

According to you. I could get 50 people and get 50 different answers on 'what you do' every time. Also what 'requires' a tip is just as arbitrarily stupid.

Lets just agree that tipping culture is really fucking stupid in the US.

I'm confused. You say it must be complicated in the US to tip but you say you can find 50 people where you are who all say different?

in any event, i've never had any complications with anybody I know tipping. nobody argues over which percentage. since i've been old enough to pay, everyone pays roughly 15% and calls it good. these tipping calculators and "rules" saying which service requires which % is something i've never experienced nor heard of anybody experiencing.

20% is easier to calculate, and I'm generally just shocked that anybody is performing a service for me at all. Gotta tip your prostitutes.
