  • I’m talking verbal replies, not head nods. I don’t remember any head nods.

    I would say there’s a pretty big correlation there because friendliness is the quality of being willing to engage in conversations with people (even brief ones) and potentially make friends. If you’re not even willing to reply to a simple greeting, that’s understandable, and someone who does that may still be friendly in other contexts, but they’re not friendly to strangers on the street, and that’s what I’m referring to. I’m not trying to throw shade or anything; it’s an understandable learned response. It’s just that city life is a different culture than suburban/rural life, and different sorts of people are going to prefer each.


  • I’ve walked down the streets of Philadelphia on a Sunday morning - much less crowded than public transportation - and said good morning to people I passed. Even then, only half of them even gave a greeting in turn. There may be more friends, clubs, and hobby groups available in cities, which is certainly a nice thing, but there’s a loss in the friendliness of people on the street because there are so many of them. To each their own.

    Forgive me for not knowing the names, but I randomized a few to test.

    Red: “We slice the meme. Everybody is using panels.”
    Stripes: “We slice the meme.”
    Red: “A sliced meme.”
    Stripes: “A sliced meme.”
    Red: “We use slices.”

    Red: “A sliced meme. Everybody is using panels.”
    Stripes: “A sliced meme.”
    Red: “We use slices.”
    Stripes: “We slice the meme.”
    Red: “We slice the meme.”

    Red: “We use slices. A sliced meme.”
    Stripes: “A sliced meme.”
    Red: “We slice the meme.”
    Stripes: “We slice the meme.”
    Red: “Everybody is using panels.”

    I guess it works? Weird that it ended up with the same speaking order each time.

    At my family’s house, the men’s shampoo is of the same brand and packaging as some of the women’s shampoo, just with less floral names like “ocean” and “gingham legend,” whatever that’s supposed to mean.
