2021.09.26 17:01 Ramza_Claus I never heard Hitchens give a sincere answer to Dennis Prager's challenge, and I wanna know y'all's thoughts on it.
So, I'm a huge fan of Christopher Hitchens. His courage and wit will likely never be replaced. But one thing kinda bugs me.
During a conversation, Dennis Prager presented this challenge to Hitch:
"Imagine you're in a city where you've never been before. It's late at night and you're walking alone down a sidewalk when a group of young men begins to walk toward you. Would you feel better or worse if you learned these young men had just come from a prayer meeting?"
Hitchens response was usual witty style and he says that he'd had that experience in Belgrade, Bethlehem, Budapest, Bombay and other cities that start with B, and he says that when you're in that situation, you know exactly how fast you should run from these men who just left a prayer meeting.
I believe that. If I saw a group of young men who had just come from some religious gathering late at night in Budapest, I would probably avoid them.
Yet I can't help but feel that Hitch sorta dodged the spirit of Prager's question.
Prager obviously meant a US city. What about Baltimore? Boston? Or Brainerd, MN?
What would YOUR answer be?
If you were in Baltimore and it was late and dark and you saw 6-8 young men who were walking out of a church, would you feel less threatened to know these guys were coming from church? What if they were walking out of their local Secular Humanist meeting spot?

2021.09.26 17:01 1quirky1 Amazon no longer offering a free month of Prime when they fail to deliver
I'm only one customer but there are others like me. Looking at the big picture - the convenience of Prime comes at a cost, whether it be the $119/yr membership fee or the exploitation of their workforce.
I'm paying for Prime to get the same-day delivery. I bought something I genuinely needed that same day. I'm paying for the convenience of not going to a local store, but Amazon is not delivering reliably. I'm paying for this membership and am not getting the promised benefits.
I contacted customer service via chat. The only option offered was an apology and an excuse. I was appropriate and professional because this person is only the messenger with metrics to maintain. I ended up presenting my own option - canceling the order and my Prime membership. Both were done and the chat representative abruptly terminated the chat session.

If you have any suggestions to make the subreddit more interactive and useful. Please comment. Maybe someone incharge would notice.
