There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.
| Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.|
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !

The problem with this well-thought-out-nothing-could-possibly-go-wrong-this-time ban is that a lot of disabled people depend on them to get water and/or food, and for various reasons other materials absolutely won't work (paper, metal, etc. all have shortcomings that render them useless for many people using plastic straws). As someone who works with this population that would be a genuinely huge problem, one that could easily be fixed but which the law as written doesn't account for. Reducing the amount of plastic in the environment is absolutely commendable, the problem is blanket-banning things without accounting for a fairly obvious problem it creates.

Presenting... the Grand Unified Conspiracy!
- LMAO. This has to be a joke, especially how they have a 4-chan version printed in a green background. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 18:51, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
About the newest CLOG
About that Rome: Total War II thing
Do the people complaining about the male/female ratio of generals in that game not realize that the relevant numbers can easily be changed? Because from what I read, it's not that hard to mod it so that the number of women involved can be anything you want. Yet another reason why the outrage about it is idiotic.Resident Ishtar worshiper (talk) 10:20, 29 September 2018 (UTC)
