Girl I met at a bar last night doesn't want to leave apartment

2.6k Upvotes

As the title says, after a bit of flirting and kissing at the bar, I brought her to my place and we had some fun. Now it's early in the morning and I'll have to work in 1 hour and she doesn't want to leave because it's 'early and she needs time to wake up'. I don't want to leave someone I barely know alone with my stuff let alone my cat. What should I do, grab her and shove her out? Call the cops? Or has anyone a nice and persuasive way of giving her the message?

Edit: I'm so sorry for not replying sooner, I genuinely thought this would get 2 responses tops, and forgot to check after the situation resolved. I ended up calling work and saying I'll likely be a little later, then convinced her to go home if I call and pay a cab. She was so nice in the bar, the sudden turn of character was crazy to me.

Answered Are people really not using high school geometry in everyday life?

725 Upvotes

I often see people joke that high school math is a waste because “no one uses geometry in real life”, and I am so confused!

I use geometry regularly to hang art, manage my garden, plan the layout of furniture and lighting my home, and even organize groceries and closet storage.

Are folks seriously NEVER using geometry? How do you manage the space around you without it?

…do you just buy random things and hope for the best?

can anyone else control a rumbling in their ears?

239 Upvotes

I asked a few people about this and they all looked at me like I'm retarded. Idk what muscle it is but if I do a very specific facial contraction that feels by my ears, I get a sorta rumbling sound in my ears like buurrrurrrurrr. And it's prolonged as long as I do this contraction.

Am I retarded? Super powers? Or is this a normal thing?

My fiancé pees outside and I don’t understand why? He will pee in the back yard even though we have a bathroom. When I ask him he says “the rocks need my help” can someone explain?

I know. Am Stupid. Just can't quite grasp why they fight to wear it in Canada, but protest against it in Iran.

I realized I’ve never seen a microwave commercial in my life. I’ll sure they were popular in the 80’s, but now I don’t see a single one

So I got cast in my first music video as an extra and it says that for the shoot, I need to be makeup ready. Does that mean I have to show up with makeup on my face, or take my own makeup and they’ll put it on for me? I’m a guy if that helps

Can a picture that has a blurred face still be found by reverse image search or similar?

Upvotes

I’ve considered posting (sfw) pictures of myself cosplaying, dyeing my hair, and other interesting things on subreddits that have those kinds of trends. However, I am a person who is cautious about revealing personal info such as my face on a public forum. The obvious solution is to blur or obscure my face, but would someone still be able to use that edited picture to reverse image search or similar and potentially find the original images I have on my personal social media?

Do people aging from 50+ really think it’s normal for them to be playing their video in loud volume in the middle of a quiet area in public?

Upvotes

This is what I usually notice. It’s annoying, but I also understand that it’s a public place. However, are they also not aware that the area or the room they are in is quiet? A breakroom for example, everything’s silent until the subject started watching their Facebook videos on a loud volume. This is what I also notice whenever my uncles and aunts are staying in our apartment. They would be in the couch and I would here their videos all the way to my bedroom. I know that for some of them, earphones and headsets can be a hassle to fiddle around and some of them are already losing their hearing. But what do you guys think?

Unanswered How real is the cultural stigma of "living with your parents" in the west?

46 Upvotes

As someone originally lived in the states but moved back to my parent's home country as a kid, one of the main cultural gaps that stood out to me is how widely propagated this idea of the nuclear family is in the west. There seems to be a everpresent and powerful motivation to move out, whether it's at 18 or after college to "become independent" etc.

This directly contrasts how in most asian countries, parents will often expect their child to live with them through adulthood regardless of financial situation, more as a sign of familial affection than a transactional exchange (the idea of paying rent to your parents is absurd here)

for example, my younger brother is in his mid 20s, very successful in a tech career but lives with our parents and they couldn't be happier

Help the cat I took in is going bananas

4 Upvotes

Hi, everyone

Recently I took in the outdoor stray I have been feeding for a while since the weather was really bad and I really liked how sweet and cuddle he is so I thought this would be a great home cat. He was okay the first few days since majority of the time he was inside but I let him go poop outside and play around. Since I'm moving away from the house soon I wanted to get him used to the indoors plus he kept eating nice every time he went outside, so I took him to the vet, bought toys, toilet etc. He has used the cat litter which was a huge step, turned out he was also neutered so I didn't understand why is he so persistent to leave. Now every time he sees the door he goes and cries to be let out, so I dont know what to do. If he cant adjust to living in an apartment or indoor I have to leave him here but I'm scared he will freeze to death in winter or noone will feed him.. Any advice?

Unanswered Shows similar to We Bare Bears?

5 Upvotes

So, me and my wife are both in our late thirties and we like to watch We Bare Bears in the morning before we leave to work. It’s perfect because it has short episodes and it’s funny even for adults. Any longer episodes and we wouldn’t have time to watch them before we have to leave.

But the problem is… We are running out of episodes on WBB. I think we are on the last season at the moment. So we are looking for the next show to watch. So specs:

  • must be streamable on Netflix, Disney+/Hulu, HBO Max, C More or Apple TV+
  • 5-15 min episodes, 20 mins tops (but preferably shorter)
  • has a lot of episodes
  • funny to adults
  • doesn’t need to be kid shows nor even kid friendly, since we don’t have kids
