Ask @the1janitor:

What do you think about seatbelt laws? Is it ridiculous to make someone do something if not doing so would only hurt themselves.

In general I agree that crimes which have no victim, or where the only victim is the perpetrator, should not be crimes. I do not think it is the purpose of the law to dictate what we "ought" to do.
But arguably, failing to wear a seatbelt potentially affects more than just yourself. If you are seriously injured or killed (events which seatbelt usage is proven to limit), you become a burden on the healthcare system, ambulances and police and and paramedics have to be dispatched to your location, and you'll have to be taken to a hospital, all of which has a cost that is being paid by many more people than you.
This, in and of itself, makes it at the very least understandable why the government has an interest in compelling people to behave responsibly, but I do think that there is a limit to what's reasonable. For example I have argued on multiple occasions for the decriminalization of most drug use (although for some drugs, it may be reasonable for the same reason given above).
Regardless, wear your seatbelt tho

What should a single person do when all your friends are in relationship? 😂

i guess it depends on how you feel about that. Most couples in my experience still like hanging out with their single friends, so you can still do that if you dont mind being a third wheel sometimes. sometimes hanging out in groups is a good way to make it less awkward.
If not, you can try to find more single people to hang out with at social events and other situations where you might find people. Its hard to answer because I never really care that much about it

What do you think about vegans who feed their dogs vegan dog food? Do they have the right to force their diet on their carnivorous pets? BQ: I've seen vegans say they don't trust meat eaters to look after their pets but would you trust a vegan to look after your dog properly, in terms of feeding??

i am not an expert on this, but from what I understand dogs can be vegetarian/vegan as long as their diets are properly supplemented. so it something that can be done but it needs to be done by someone who has done the research and knows what they are doing.
What one might want to take into account is that your dog probably prefers a meat diet and might be bummed out all the time because his food sucks.
Cats on the other hand are carnivorous and need meat in their diets. I don't think this one is arguable, at that point it's just abuse to your pet.
But again, i could be wrong, and feel free to correct me if I am.
