    She figured the dude would do some unpleasant stuff to her if she didn't do what he said, so she complied without recieving any explicit threats. I agree, I have heard of some funnier shit myself.

    still not seeing how its funny at all

    See, according to the mugger's society code, he wasn't allowed to attack her unless his opening proposition explicitly stated that he will. The victim, who was clearly did not have a complete understanding of the code and its technicalities complied with his request, even though she was completely safe. It's a hilarious workplace misunderstanding brought on by procedural technicalities!

    I think Hobnail is agreeing that it's unfunny. Unless I am wrong. I only have enough energy to be mad at one person, so hopefully I am not.

    Yeah Hob was saying it's not funny.

    Why whats-his-face would say it's funny is beyond me. That's worth a smack upside the head.

    i kind of assumed nobody meant it was "haha funny" and more of a "well that's an interesting way of mugging someone" funny

    like not funny in a humorous sense

    just funny

    does that make pennies to anyone else

    its funny in the sense that it indicates how oblivious male privilege is to how threatened women can feel in certain situations

    I think it's sort of funny given the way it's written and not how it probably went down

    because it sounds like sort of a reverse mugging

    maybe I'm just sick in the head

    I thought it was funny, but not in a ROFL sort of way.

    The closest I've ever been to getting mugged is some dude on the Case campus telling me the point in his jacket pocket was a gun like Kevin Costner in Field of Dreams. My buddy I was with reacted almost exactly like James Earl Jones and the guy walked away when we didn't believe he had a gun.

    Not at all
    never put goldfish with any other fish except for, possibly, a bristlenose pleco. Sometimes a few corys might be okay, but generally, just goldfish. Also we are talking fancy goldfish here, not common or comet goldfish, which you should never really be keeping in a tank unless you have a 100 gallon tank.
    goldfish are huge assholes and will either kill/eat/harass/terrorize everything else or be harassed/killed/eaten/terrorized by everything else

    if you are interested in keeping goldfish here is the best resource for information on the topic

    take it to a pet store and exchange it for a fancy goldfish (Which needs a 20 gallon tank and is still not compatible with other fish) or get ready to build an outdoor pond/buy a 50 gallon+ tank

    even wikipedia knows youre fucked, commons get 12 inches plus. And that is not a, well baaaw they only get the size of their tank!! that is total false bullshit and is like saying well I will put this baby human in a box, it will only get as big as this box. Yes, because it will die. I mean honestly if you want to put it in whatever I don't personally give a shit, but it is going to either die or eat your platys. Also goldfish release an amazing amount of ammonia aka poo-pee into the water so you'll need to up your filtration in your tank or do more water changes anyways. but hey, the good thing about fish is that they are cheap and you can always replace them.

    oh god i love lil adorbs nano tanks for bettas

    fishless cycling is such a bittcchhhh, I had to do it for my 15 gallon axolotl tank and now it looks like the filter is being a bitch again so I am going to take the media from my goldfish tank and use it til it gets back on its feet

    edit: I really wanted to try taking a 2gal fluval spec and trying to do corals in it, there's a big aquarium society here with a shitton of coral frags for sale/trade. But I am so busy now with my other tanks bluhbluh

    that is a fucking genius idea. Buying another wallet tommorow.

    If you can get your hands on some defunct and/or worthless currency, say, some Zimbabwean dollars or Saddam-era Iraqi Dinars, stuff it with that.

    Carrying a gun always seems like a bad idea. I'm sure some of you know exactly how you would react, but I don't think most people can say how they would react if they got mugged, and if you aren't a badass, there is a decent chance that your own gun gets you killed.

    Probably not, but whatever.

    You're certainly not any safer carrying a gun unless you're willing to actually shoot someone.

    Yes I do. It also serves the purpose of having a hardened metal point on the hilt to break glass. Which can also be used as a hammer. Or a human skull cracker.

    I was thinking it might have been more in regards to what they called it "aggressive solicitation of money" as opposed to "robbery without physical assault"

    I used to carry a canister of CS Gas spray in case someone tried to mug me.

    Incredibly stupid. I'd have been more likely to go to prison than my attacker.
