In the US it seems like they take chiropractic pretty seriously, some medical doctors even recommend going to a chiropractor for back issues and these people can sometimes call themselves "doctors". In Italy I don't think there's a regulatory body for chiropractors, personally I don't know much about what they do but I've always put them in the same category as crystal healers and the like. I only know one person who's ever gone to a chiropractor and she swears by his abilities to cure back pain with just a couple of adjustments. She made me wonder how widespread chiropractic is outside of its country of origin, if there's any other country where it's taken as seriously as in the US. So, what is your country's opinion on chiropractors?
By that I mean something like an attempt by a party or movement to create a union with another country or region that is actually taken at least somewhat seriously by society.
So, just as an example, a movement to unify Benelux or to reunify Scandinavia. I can't think of any, but I am curious
In Estonia a small wedding is only the closest family and maybe few friends, if any. So maybe 0-20 guests. Medium is around 50 guests and a big wedding is 100+ guests.
Sometimes the couple is only registrating alone and won't do wedding party at all. But mostly we have noon/afternoon registration and then a wedding party after that: lots of food and drinks and lasts until morning hours. Some weddings last for 2 nights (3 days).
Location is mostly countryside, by the sea or in a manor.
Welcome to our daily scheduled post: Daily Slow Chat, which will replace Slow Chat Sunday from now on.
This is a post meant for general, unrelated, more civil, and all-over-the-place every day, and meta discussions that do not warrant their own threads. So if you just wanna chat about your day, if you have questions for the moderators (Please mark those [Mod] so we can find them), or just wanna talk about oatmeal this is the thread for you!
We have a server on Discord BTW. It's very small right now, and we'd love to have more of you over there. Do both of us a favor, and use this link to join the fun. If you need manual verification, just ping one of the mods: they should be visible at the top of the sidebar.
The mod-team wishes you a nice day!
What's your country's Secret Service? Who are the individuals chosen with protecting/being bodyguards of your prime minister/president/head of state?
In the U.S. we have the Secret Service who've existed for nearly 160 years but have provided protection to our Commander-in-Chief for 120 years.
Is it the same finger as for the wedding ring or is it a different one?
Are there rules about what does an engagement ring have to look like to be an engagement ring? Or what the wedding ring can or can not look like?
