Americans: do you have what it takes to go to sleep without the use of a pillow?

Americans are a very self indulgent country because there are too many Starbucks and outlets to facilitate selfish instincts.

So i challange Americans to see if they can sleep without a pillow for the rest of this month.

Then for Febuary the early part try dopimine detox.

@cherokeepatti Have you ever seen any of the video's made at Buc-ee's?
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@Stereoguy yeah I saw it on a tv show too.
Stereoguy · 56-60, M
@cherokeepatti Their sandwiches are pretty good. They actually have a real bakery on premise too.

You make is out to be bad people. America and her people can't be such a bad place if we are literally being invaded by illegals trying to come get their piece of our freedom and opportunity pie.

@EsculationOfEpiphaniesAndCosmi 🙄

Another one of them. To the victors go the spoils!

In the meantime suck our collective dicks🍆

I remember our dog would always sleep on his favorite blanket, but would first shuffle around it to make it to his liking. If anyone had left clothes on the floor, he'd pick it up and include it with his blanket to make his bed even better.

The best part is most Americans don't give a rodents rectum what you think. Oh i must be one of the 1% because i own a pillow. What country are you from ?
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@kodiac probably lays his head on a rock or something.
kodiac · 22-25, M
@cherokeepatti It just gets old so many people rag on Americans but no other country.
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@kodiac They probably watch Hollywood movies and TV shows and believe all Americans are that way. Not a lot of critical thinking in their thoughts.

ignoring the weird pillow challenge, but self indulgence has nothing to do with nationality, however American culture is very consumeristic compared to other countries in the East especially that practice sustainability
caPnNathanael · 26-30, M
What do pillows have to do with starbucks? Wouldn't a better challenge be to not buy starbucks?
MasterLee · 51-55, M
@caPnNathanael I would never buy anything from there
caPnNathanael · 26-30, M
@MasterLee same. I've never actually been to starbucks
Paladin · 56-60, M
You've figured us out. Starbucks is the root of all evil.😄
But no, I won't give up my pillows. There is no reason to.
@Paladin just till the end of January?
Paladin · 56-60, M
@EsculationOfEpiphaniesAndCosmi No can do. Can't go against dr.s orders.

As a non American I don’t regard the presence of Starbucks as an indication of self indulgence. It’s just very mediocre coffee disguised with lots of sweet flavours.

What’s it got to do with pillows? Pillows aren’t self indulgent either, any more than bedding or clothes or sofas or….
Heartlander · 80-89, M
@Diana50 Coffee and tea are the social lubricants for much of the world. Probably more so than alcohol.

Without a pillow, I'd probably sleep on my hands. And maybe even take off and roll up my shirt or pants for a tiny bit more upper elevation.
MasterLee · 51-55, M
Yes but why if it is unnecessary
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
What kind of device are you using to post this question? A cell phone, computer, Ipad or what? Seems like you could afford a pillow if you can get online and post stuff.
@cherokeepatti i am using a mobile fone
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@EsculationOfEpiphaniesAndCosmi You can afford a pillow if you have a phone. It’s your choice.
🤣...So, is Canada 'superior' in your mind then?

I have been sleeping without a pillow for about a week....I won't divulge my reasons.
@LunadelobosIAMTHEDRAGON well done, keep it up
LetsGoBrandon · 31-35, M
I'm sure an Elite would agree with you
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@LetsGoBrandon yeah next thing…let’s take their pillows away…
LetsGoBrandon · 31-35, M
@cherokeepatti to Mike Pillow???? NOOooooooooo
Jackaloftheazuresand · 26-30, M
I sleep on a floor there ain't no pillow
@Jackaloftheazuresand good for you
CopperFox420 · 36-40, F
Go tell the millions of homeless Americans this too.

Sounds like the intro to an action movie.
Diana50 · 51-55, F
@SilkenMist Or a reality survival program. “We challenged six Starbucks customers to sleep without a pillow every night for a week. Can they make it? Who will crack first?”
SilkenMist · 46-50, F
@Diana50 Probably younger millenials and GenZ
I live in dopamine detox. Already don’t use a pillow haven’t in three years.
Diana50 · 51-55, F
What’s wrong with pillows?
@Diana50 they foster self indulgence
Diana50 · 51-55, F
@EsculationOfEpiphaniesAndCosmi So is self indulgence necessarily bad? Does that include any form of comfort e.g. bedding or chair with cushions?
I've spent random nights in jail here & there so yeah for sure
Nebula · 41-45, F
@Nebula im not surprised
Nebula · 41-45, F
@EsculationOfEpiphaniesAndCosmi I've been through my fair share of uncomfortable shit
@Nebula example please
ChipmunkErnie · 70-79, M
Hell no -- three for my head and one to hug
JimboSaturn · 51-55, M
I think most people use a pillow; not only Americans.
ViciDraco · 36-40, M
I've been going without the use of a leg for a few years now. I think I'll keep the pillow.
