In response to a confession. Holy shit... apparently, edibles make me extremely passionate about the oil industry.

In response to a confession. Flyover states is exactly how they see us. I remember a few years ago when Los Angeles got a little rain and it made the national news. There was major flooding and drought going on in the rest of the country, but yes, let's all focus on a small rain shower. I swear, the west coast is like an annoying, attention seeking sibling. Sit down, Karen. We have plenty of jobs here in Iowa.

Has your jealousy ever been so severe it’s gotten you depressed? One of my distant family members got super rich super fast and now won’t stop rubbing it in my face how he’s a dropout making 12k in profits a month while I have two bachelors and barely make 70k a year. He’s always been a druggie drunk partier and opened up a head shop on a whim and suddenly got so successful he’s opening up multiple businesses and it’s making me so depressed how easy it was for him but I’m struggling so much. I feel guilty for feeling this way and comparing ourselves but damn when I tried opening my own business it failed and for him it was just so damn easy. I guess at the end of the day it’s all just luck. /rant

In response to a confession. I'm sure I'll catch hell for saying this, but this just seems a little, idk, shortsighted. Like whoever wrote this hasn't spent much time in the "flyover" states. You seem to be a little misguided. Believe it or not, the oil industry is alive and well in middle America. It isn't offshore drilling, which is what I'm assuming you're referring to, but oil companies have a huge presence all over the country, even Iowa. Sorry, I'm just kind of giggling over your assessment of non-coastal cities. I'll blame the edible I had an hour ago.

In response to a confession. The oil industry is one of the largest in the country, all over America. Even us little piddly states have oil fields, pipelines, drilling operations, corporate offices, etc. I'm kind of scratching my head over this. Is this really how people on the coast view the rest of the nation? Just because y'all have a lot of people doesn't mean you have more jobs. And there are loads of large, middle American cities that were built on waterways, around importing/exporting industries.

I use the phrase "Make it so." from Star Trek way too often.

What is it with women lecturing others on social media about a certain topic but their husbands do the exact opposite and they don't care. For instance a friend of mine is super into healthy eating and fitness. She posts her meals and even her indulgences which are still pretty healthy. She posts about all her workouts but during these posts lectures other moms on setting an example for your children with a bazillion hashtags about moms and being healthy. Meanwhile her husband is easily 300 pounds but her posts usually put all the responsibility of teaching children healthy choices on the moms. Another friend who is vegan also regularly posts about the cruelty to animals and shame on people for eating meat yet she still cooks meat every night for her husband. I know she cooks the meat because she has told me before she does all the cooking.

In response to a confession. A lot of people live on the coast because that's where a lot of jobs are. Cities were built on bodies of water because before air travel because that's how you got things. You couldn't just fly things in and then throw them on a truck to wherever. In fact, just about every import still comes in through ports on the coasts. Most major cities are on a coast for that reason. It's hard to work in the oil industry, for example, if you live in Iowa. Look at population maps. The bulk of the US population lives on a coast. Even if you live in the middle of the country, as far away from the ocean as possible, you are still at risk for tornadoes, flooding, etc.

Why is it always a "I have it harder than you" contest around here? HUGE EYEROLL
