  1. Two friends were debating a topic (ethical). They’re both civil and rational so the debate helped me formulate my own thoughts and conclusions. Ironically, other friends were admonishing them for wasting time debating online because no one ever changes their opponents mind.

  2. I read that Lufthansa did 18000 empty flights last year. 18k flights without passengers in them. Just because of some regularities that they have to fly to certain destinations a certain amount of times during the year to be allowed to fly to them in the future. This made me rethink my guilty conscience about not driving an electric car at the moment.

  3. I used to be heavily into cancel culture and jumping into a bandwagon of hate and harassment without knowing the full story or context when I was younger, and after I saw this specific one death threat describing in very detailed ways horrific torture and rape methods they wanted to do to this person and their child who they had just given birth to (they were a “problematic” author because apparently writing gender roles accurate to the time their books were set in is super sexist), I was like “what the flying fuck” and from then I’ve been highly against this bandwagoning behaviour in general.
