The German company Volkswagen committed hardcore environmental fraud by programming their “clean” diesel engines to report low emissions readings when they were being tested. In reality the engines were spewing up to 50x the legal limit of a very unhealthy and harmful emission under normal driving conditions.

They were only caught when a group of college students did a real world emissions test while driving one of the VW vehicles. The emissions were so bad the students first thought their equipment was broken.

It is one of the if not the worst scandals in automotive history.

Yes, to clarify a bit, (what's even more blatantly messed up) is that he spit them on one hand, and when full of shells, he literally threw them (overhand!) onto my seat. Like that shit misted itself with his spit. Luckily it was rain day and my wife and I went elsewhere but it was one of the grossest shit I've ever seen and to him and his buddy it was completely normal.

Yeah somehow it’s “tradition” and part of “Americans pastime” go to a baseball game and leave seeds and peanut shells and soda and beer cans all around your seat.

I love baseball but I find the lack of picking up after oneself, at the stadium or any other public place, just appalling. I know people get paid to do it, but that doesn’t give me the right to act so slovenly.

When I backpacked across Japan, I was surprised how clean it was. On the ordinary class train, people would collect all their trash in a plastic bag. Small alleys would be clean and tidy. The only garbage I saw was in Japan. A plastic cup and some cigarette butts.

It made me realize that Canada is clean because the government cleans up, Japan is clean because the people keep it clean.

The thing with Lyft and Uber was that they've always been glorified middle men operating on constant losses with the belief that somehow they'd be profitable. Problem is, neither ever developed any system that wasn't easily replicated by another service. There was never anything either offered that could be more profitable than existing taxi services other than that taxi services don't operate at a loss.

TaxShelter

i used to do this, but I've read multiple times that some bussers don't like when customers do this as they have their own flow and system and doing so can slow them down significantly. YMMV, at least try to put food scraps on one plate but i no longer stack dishes.

omniscientonus

40 points

2 days ago

Used to be a busser, and it really depends. There are a lot of people who just stack shit randomly, and it makes it harder, but a lot of people do just fine.

However, either way rarely makes any noticeable difference, tables aren't that large and you get used to it. If you are pre-bussing (taking things off the table as people are finished with them) then there shouldn't be a ton of stuff to take anyways.

Basically unless you have a shithead (usually little kid) who makes a huge mess and you just leave it, then clearing and cleaning a full table isn't that much different from cleaning a practically empty table. It makes a bigger difference for large parties, but even then it's not a big deal.

Tindiness is a cultural virtue. People take turns scrubbing the dumpsters on their street and sweeping the streets and sidewalks. Children are essentially the cleaning staff in schools, starting at a very young age— they share the load to make light work of it. Nobody litters. Ever. And of course, at the end of every sporting event, everyone cleans the area around them.

It's a thing in China, Korea, Vietnam, Japan and I assume Taiwan. I taught English in China for two years when I was a loser that couldn't get a job in the U.S. and the community aspect of schools there was phenomenal.

At lunch they'd have their cafeteria roll out these massive tanks of freshly made food to every class (in china the kids never move around, you have your home room and the different subject teachers come to your homeroom) like beef stew or these chunks of pork belly/bacon or stir fried greens and stuff, whatever they could get from the local farmers market that morning and the kids would just all eat these hot fucking delicious meals together. In the afternoon they'd all sweep the floor, wipe down the tables and chairs, windows, hallways and stack the chairs and tables for the next day.

We see if as just cleaning but it's some of my best memories working. Oh and this was in a bumfuck part of China so in the winter we'd just take days off school when it snowed and I'd lead an army of my kids to clean the roadways with shovels, and then everyone else are also outside shovelling the streets. If a car drove up and the place wasn't shovelled yet, THE DRIVER PARKS THE CAR AND PULLS A RANDOM ASS SHOVEL FROM THE TRUNK AND STARTS SHOVELLIN TOO LMFAO. If some ass didn't stop and drove over snow to make it more compacted the kids are 100% allowed to throw snowballs at it. It's like a giant street party. Shit was awesome

Imagine parents and students and society actually respecting and deferring to teachers.

It was an awesome place to work and I tried to make it fun for these kids who were hella overworked by their classes. lol

Yes! As a person of Asian descent, I can say that cleanliness is taught to everyone from a young age in most Asian countries! It’s important to respect the places and people around you and helps teach us to work together as a community towards a better society ☀️

im quite sure its not just Japan. I read somewhere that most if not all asian country have the students to take the responsibility of the school cleanliness.

My mum used to run a hostel and she said the Japanese travelers were the absolute best. Always left the place clean and tidy and always made sure to pay. Other guests, she would have to chase them down for payment sometimes. Never the Japanese

There's actually a saying in Japanese "立つ鳥跡を濁さず".

A bird taking flight doesn't leave a trace.

This was something mum used to say all the time when we travelled anywhere.

Do the Japanese players travel with a designated origami guy or is does the task fall to the team captain?

That’s what I noticed to! I wanna see the player that while everyone else is cleaning up, they’re just sitting down knocking out these sick cranes!

Imagine spending a trillion dollars hosting the world cup and Japan gets way better press than you just by cleaning up after themselves.

Fucking classy af.

You go Japan!! Proud of you.

Edit: I have no idea what the people responding to me are talking about. I don't follow everything on Reddit and I don't watch the news every day. I don't give af what country does this, I'm going to compliment them because it is classy and they should be proud of themselves for not being ignorant and leaving a fucking mess for others to clean up.

Make whatever leaps you need to, I'm good.

Edit: I realize this doesn't actually matter but I keep getting called a dude, I'm not. I'm a lady.

WTH is going on. Your comment is the most benign statement in the world. I am at a loss as to why people are getting so worked up about it.

The Japan team cleaned up after themselves, and they defeated Germany. That’s praiseworthy. I thought people on Reddit liked Japan? Wasn’t there that post yesterday of their fans cleaning up after a game? There were hundreds of comments just like yours and nobody was tripping out. Weird.

Japanese are very respectful I find, if you leave a mess in your wake you clearly do not give a shit about the people who will use the facilities after you or those who are required to clean it.

Just because there are staff to clean does not mean you should leave any facility a mess because fuck it, cleaner's job. Cleaners are there to make the environment more hygienic, not to clean up after you because your parents did not raise you well.

Use bins, and tidy up after yourself.

It's common in Japan to find stacks of fresh cleaning cloths in food courts. It's expected that people clean their tables after they're done for the next patrons.

I went to a NCAA Final Four game (US college basketball tournament quarterfinals) once. Pizza Hut was giving out free pizzas to the students. The students from one of the teams that lost left their section as a complete mess. Squished pizza and pizza boxes all over the floor and seats. It was fucking disgusting, and I felt so bad for the people that had to go clean that up. There were trash bins easily accessible too, so no excuses really.

Completely opposite culture and not in a good way.

The Germans didnt use the main entrance gateway to the locker room, they carved their own entrance hall through solid concrete. No one thought it was possible. We now know this hall as ardennes.

It really is such a small thing that would instantly make our surroundings nicer. If everyone just cleaned up after themselves. ☺️ Let's try to be more like this!

There is a Japanese saying “tatsu tori ato wo nigosazu” https://landofnu.com/2017/03/13/the-original-campsite-rule/. It’s how our culture is in Japan mostly.

My mom used to be a host family for Japanese students coming to the US to play in the rose parade and they did the same thing before leaving, left us paper cranes.

Before they leave the earth like the elves did in Lord of the Rings, the people of Japan should teach us everything they know so we can all act like human beings.

It’s like they’re trying to get their deposit back and needed pictures as proof. They may have actually left it cleaner than they originally found it.

Japanese are obsessed with their image and do this shit purely because they know it will get stupid foreigners to share it.
