  • Maybe you want to elaborate on your idea, Timmy? Why do you feel like the internet being available after 8pm and on Sundays has made people 'lazy' and 'socially incompatible'?

    Because I really don't see it.

      And secondly, I try to. I'm not a hoarder though, I like to eat fresh and I rarely know on Monday what I want to eat on Friday, so I usually go grocery shopping 2-3 times a week and only get the stuff I really need in the next 2 days. This works perfectly fine until you're forced to stay / work overtime and planned to go shopping that evening.
      It's completely ridiculous to not be able to go to a shop and buy food after 6 or 8 pm . Like what ? Its 2020.
      I had no idea Germany was like that And I've been there a few times.

        I see where you're coming from, but that would not achieve anything aside from being really impractical or even harmful in some situations.

        Omg, I literally thought that Timmy came back when I saw this

        • Omg, I can think of nothing worse than not having access to the internet after certain times.

          I wouldn't be able to watch on demand TV, I wouldn't be able to do work, or access UKMIX!

            It's killing me that his post is timestamped: Today, 00:40 .

            I mean come on theMathematician you are often active quite late into the night here so it's not like you log off at 6pm sharp and spend your evening on alternate non lazy and more socially compatible ( in your eyes) activities

              • I wonder if he's deliberately posting all these conservative 'ideas' to gain reaction or not. Can't say it gains a lot of sympathy.

                • Imagine if that was actually the case during Corona and the lockdowns. The world would have disintegrated into absolute and utter CHAOS.

                  • I deliberately posted it in here since I'm aware that it's an unpopular opinion but I still wanted to spread it for others to take note of it. It is correct that I sometimes am online late - usually after work (I work part time nightshifts). Since I've got a bit busier with my requirements, I have been able to limit my internet consumption, but I'm not there where I wanna be yet.
                    Lately, I simply find things that I strongly disagree with in some way being connected to the internet, may it be home learning, home office, ghost restaurants, the rise of online shopping and streaming, social media and others. I dislike that trend and fear that weak individuals within our society struggle to keep reality and digital media apart more and more. It won't be long before you don't need to leave the house anymore at all. That's why I feel like the internet should be much more regulated by the government and if that means to regulate my way of consumption, I'd be totally fine with it.

                      It's coz Merkel's conseravtive christian party has ruled Germany for eternity and they have forced down these dumb ass rules down our throats. Gay marriage and adoption is also VERY recent phenomenon in Germany. Gay marriage also only got approved after the population demanded it coz Merkel's homophobic ass was never go allow it on her own.

                      • What about people who work in those retail stores ? Are you saying that they should be denied the use of the internet forever ? ( Seeing as you want it to be cut off as soon as they leave work )

                        Comment


                        • Good point. I don't work in retail, but I'm a big fan of retail and work in other service-related jobs, so their needs matter to me. Assuming that retail is open from 8 to 8 on 6 days, that would be 72 hours per week. Strictly going by numbers, that would still be enough time to use the internet.

                            Your original point was that the internet should not be available outside retail hours.

                            It's a bit frustrating to discuss with you sometimes because you start off saying one thing, then when someone makes a point as to why that would not make sense, you change it to something completely different in an effort to make yourself be correct, even though your first point was shown to be illogical and not at all related to your second point.

                              Maybe that's my discussion style, indeed. I mean, I try to keep it as coherent as possible, but then again, it's the 'unpopular opinion' thread, so trying to convince other users to share my views is not my main motivation here ;) .

                              That's not really a style tbh, its just deflecting/ circumventing when proven wrong. If you wish to move on to another point fine but its pointless quoting someone who replied to a completely different point which has nothing to do with the next point you are then making. Anyway I completely disagree with any government control over internet hours

                            It's also ironic because conservatives love to shout 'sOciALisM!!1!' and 'DDR!!' whenever other parties try to regulate aspects of the economy. But then they come up with stuff like 'only restaurants can sell food after 8pm' and you're like MakeItMakeSense.gif

                            But the people are so lazy and brainwashed, they keep falling for it. 4 times (or 16 years) in a row, soon to be 5 times (or 20 years). Like turkeys voting for christmas.

                              Yeah true. People here really suck up everything in the name of not causing "social unrest". The even worse thing that they also try to undermine other people that fall out of line. I am usually someone who questions how things have been done and you won't believe how many times people try to shun me or undermine me for not obeying the status quo.

                              Also the service sector in Germany is a joke in all aspects: from the short opening hours to the lack of variety to the rudeness and indifference of the staff. I am always amazed when I travel to other countries at how amazing and costumer friendly their servicing is only to come back here to deal with Karens who hate their job (& life) and are rude and unfriendly af.
