It is with the utmost pleasure that I welcome you to the June 2020 issue of The Libertarian.

This month’s issue may be one of our most exciting editions yet, with a focus on pop culture and its importance in all of our lives. The world isn’t in the best place right now, but our shared experiences with pop culture icons, media, and stories have brought us together in ways we could never have anticipated. The talented contributors to The Libertarian have created a special inside look to all the amazing ways our communities connect, inside and outside of USDF.

In fact, pop culture has an important place in our world today and throughout history. It is known as the people’s culture — the shared aspects of our lives that connect us all, such as shared beliefs, tastes, and attitudes. It helps to shape identities and forge relationships, creating a common bond and touchstone for communities worldwide. It traces as far back as folk music, common ballads that created shared stories among the local people. Eventually, as those songs and stories spread, the culture associated with them spread. Although our shared stories may come in different formats today, such as through social media, television, and movies, they still have the transformative and integrative properties of the stories once told around campfires ages ago.

I hope this issue of The Libertarian will give you an exciting and in-depth look at the way pop culture functions today and the impact it has on all of our lives.

A World of Memes

by Maxite

Memes are everywhere: real life, online, and even in USDF. When Richard Dawkins first described memes in his book The Selfish Gene, he described them as cultural or behavioral information that can be passed down from one person to another, similar to how genes pass down genetic information. Memes are more than our common association to the humorous catchphrases online; they are also ideas, like what side of the road we drive on or the best way to brew a cup of coffee. Memes are an interesting social concept, but what made them a household word was the internet boom and subsequent internet culture. Now image macros, in-jokes, and funny cat pictures form the face of memes to people worldwide.

However, one face stands out more than most, and that is the face of András Arató, who is more famously known as Hide the Pain Harold or Maurice. A retired Hungarian electrical engineer, András was hired as a stock photo model in the late 2000s to early 2010s. What made his stock photos stick out was his gentle expression that seemed to be trying to hide some sort of pain. This expression of unease resonated with people, and in 2011, the meme was born — describing the life of Harold, a man trying to hide his conflicts or dealing with uncomfortable truths about his life or circumstances.

What has given Harold such staying power is ultimately how relatable the meme is regardless of where you are in life. Concerns over health, relationships, jobs, the economy and so much more can all be expressed through the lens of Harold as we grapple with the seeming oxymoron of idealistic cynicism. This journey through emotion can even be captured by András’ reaction to discovering the meme about himself; going from disliking the idea to ultimately embracing it and using it to champion a more positive, if not humorous, message.

Harold hasn’t just impacted the internet in general, but has even infiltrated aspects of the United States Defense Force. His face has been used on posters and inserted into screenshots from Habbo, it has made its way as a custom emoji for the USDF Discord server, and is even just said aloud by personnel on Habbo. Just like the internet as a whole, we have embraced him for either comedic purpose or expressions of awkwardness. He’s been used to vocalize the feelings of discomfort that come from being in a military roleplay, whether that be mistakes made on the job, misunderstandings, or even just jokes that fell flat.

The world of memes for our pop culture is so heavily used in our everyday lives and for all sorts of situations. It can also be said that memes influence our choices and responses — and just like András, we all wear multiple faces. Although he chose to come forward with his real identity, he is still most recognized by his online persona of Harold. In USDF, we carry ourselves by our Habbo avatars and various accounts; hiding our true selves away just as Harold hides his pain. In more ways than one, we are all ‘Hide the Pain Harold,’ and that isn’t a bad thing. Sometimes it is for the best that we acknowledge the awkwardness and move forward in the strange journey that is life.

Peace in Music

by Noahiinq

Music is a type of art or cultural activity that uses sound as a medium to give form  to beauty and is often used to express emotion. It is a universal language with a large variety of genres and musical constructs that allow people to resonate on a personal level with sound. Quite often, music is used to represent significant moments of one’s life or can be linked to someone’s cultural background, playing a crucial role in personal identity and communication—for example, the Maori haka. Music can be considered a lifestyle, with the culture surrounding music differing all around the world. But one thing is for certain: music is an integral part of every single person’s life, whether they are aware of it or not. 

Music is one of the top 14 listed best stress relievers of all time. Whether it be upbeat rock music, or soft folk music, it can benefit us in a number of ways, including when it comes to health. It is said that music can induce the relaxation response by helping lower blood pressure, heart rate and stress hormones. During exercise, music has the same effect on reducing stress hormones but works in conjunction with serotonin and dopamine uptake to create that ‘feel good’ feeling. 

During these times of hardship, stress relief is essential for the mental wellbeing that has been impacted by the world-wide social isolation. Although Habbo can help with online socialization, everyone needs a little music in their lives. Not only that, OPA takes part by providing a platform for sharing music! With the radio broadcasting almost daily, personnel have a chance to take a minute to tune into the radio, relax and listen to all sorts of music as they work or perform other activities. Many have confirmed that the USDF Radio definitely brightens their mood! 

So my question to our friends here at USDF is this: 

What is your favorite genre of music, and why?

CWO4 KeiKano:

“I love classical music because it has more richness. Classical music is normally more emotional (excluding the baroque era where they sound like they are dancing waltz all the time), and it requires practice, as well as years and years of experience to perfect it.”

CWO4 ggiisshh: 

“I like classic because it makes me want to jump into an orchestra pit.”

LTJG Wolf2512: 

“Reggae and because it is mostly what we listen to in my country and it’s moving so whenever I listen to it I just want to dance.”

LT er:c: 

“K-Pop, Nightcore, and Emo because it makes me feel good.”

CWO2 PiersonP: 

“Does tiktok count as a music genre…?”

PO1 Wolvesrock114: 

“I like pop music because it helps calm me down.”

PO1 Dinsky

“Showtunes because I like broadway!”

CMSgt ectoTrickster: 

“Goth rock because I’m goth.”

CPO KlaudeFredricc: 

“My favorite music genre between all of the music genres is Rock. While I love the one and catchy rhythm formula of Pop music, I prefer hearing the multi rhythm in the song that I listen to and rock songs usually have that. Most of the Rock songs make a transition in a part of the song and change the pace and sound of the music, sometimes doing it multiple times. One of the factors that make me love Rock is the variety of the instruments that are being used in a rock song. The instruments that are used in a Classic, Jazz and even Pop songs are usually limited but Rock songs can contain anything from bass guitar to even a piano. One other factor is the “hardness” of the music. As you may realise Metal songs are carrying the factors that I just counted in this text, but it is the hardness that separates Rock between all of the other music types. Not as smooth as Jazz music, not as tough as metal music. Rock is carrying a hardness that can be considered as loud but not the type of loud that makes you plug your ears. Rock music’s hardness is the type of hardness that puts you in a mood and makes you think about your potentialities and your desires. By doing that, Rock music puts you in a mode and that is the most important factor that I love Rock music the most.”

It doesn’t matter the type of music. All that matters is finding a genre that can make you feel at ease, feel good or create happiness. Music can help you clear your mind and make someone’s day go from bad, maybe even horrible, to good and sometimes great! Continue to listen to music, USDF, and continue to make your day amazing, because OPA has a lot of talented DJs and you may even be introduced to new genres and songs that you just can’t get enough of!

The Reality of Cancel Culture

by idolayainerz

One of the famous trends happening in today’s pop culture is canceling people—especially artists, celebrities, and influencers. With what we’ve been seeing in social media, we have to ask: is cancel culture real? Is it a good idea? Or does it do more harm than good? 

So, what is “cancel culture”? Aja Romano from Vox (2019) defines it as the idea of culturally blocking someone from having a prominent public platform or career. It’s when a person says or does something offensive, it ensues a public backlash that’s fueled by politically progressive social media. 

At first glance, canceling people for their wrongdoings is empowering, because it gives a sense of justice, showing your stance on what is right and wrong. It’s telling people that you don’t tolerate what that person did, and at the same time showing where your morals lie. Additionally, it’s very easy to cancel people on social media, as one tweet or hashtag is all it takes to call them out (such as #XISOVERPARTY #YCANCELLED). 

Most people believe that canceling people out is impactful when in reality, it doesn’t. Cancel culture is a myth—that is, it only works temporarily and doesn’t last long-term. Yes, some people deserve to be canceled, such as those who have committed crimes or shown a pattern of hateful behavior; however, this usually doesn’t make much of a difference for wealthy and powerful people.  An example would be James Charles, one of the highly influential beauty gurus on Youtube. He has been tied to multiple issues within the beauty community and has been canceled on Twitter for quite some time now. Even after losing over a million subscribers after he feuded with another famous YouTuber, James Charles is doing okay—he still makes money off of his Youtube videos and currently has a running show called “Instant Influencers.”

Moreover, I’d like to point out that canceling people is not just counterproductive, but toxic. It doesn’t allow the person who was canceled any room for growth or opportunity to learn from one’s mistakes and the chance to change. It prevents people from changing for the better and making amends for what they have done. However, don’t just take my word for it—here’s what some USDF personnel had to say.

“I feel that cancel culture is mostly boycotting people based on their past mistakes. I do feel that while it’s true that they have made those mistakes, we shouldn’t be boycotting/ruining someone because of it and making them pay over and over for the same mistake. I feel that the cancel culture and those who partake in it are toxic in general, as it attempts to ruin one person’s entire future over one action made in the past. I believe in second chances as even if you were DD-ed before in USDF, you can still apply for a pardon.”

– Captain LMaoZeDonny

“It’s toxic to be honest. I don’t think we benefit from “canceling” someone. I think it’s better to hold someone accountable for what they’ve done rather than completely secluding them from society. People make mistakes, some are far worse than others, but it doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t listen to their explanations. Only make your own judgement after hearing all sides and seeing the evidence presented by both parties. People who are into the cancel culture should be responsible for what they spurt out on the internet, as it may cause severe damage and consequences.”

– Senior Airman Loched

Relating this to USDF, cancel culture could not survive in this military simulation. As previously mentioned above, USDF believes in second, even third chances. We have had personnel that have been pardoned from Dishonorable Discharges or Never Rehires, as well as coming back from a UCMJ punishment. Once someone has paid for their wrongdoings, we shouldn’t continue to hold it against them, and condemning them for their actions doesn’t help anyone at all. Instead of canceling or shaming these individuals, it costs nothing to treat them nicely as a fellow coworker in headquarters. Surely they have been held accountable for their actions and have been doing their best to change, we do not have the right to bring up their past as they may not be ready to talk about it and it is probably not our business anyway. Don’t forget that their past doesn’t define them for who they are now!

Picture this scenario in HQ: a JNCO manning sentry mistakenly lets in a troll. What we would normally do is correct them in a polite, professional and appropriate manner. We would whisper and remind them to double-check people by reminding them of FEAT {S} and “BUM”. This allows for positive reinforcement, encouragement and provides a safe and supportive environment for our personnel. If we were to publicly humiliate that person, they wouldn’t learn from their mistake, they would feel ashamed and discouraged from sentrying again. Having consistently low morale creates the tendency for people to become demoralized, which could lead to demotivation. This is by far one of the worst feelings, and quite often hard to get rid of once you’re stuck in that spiral. 

USDF is a safe place for people to enjoy playing a military simulation. Quoting from the USDF server’s header on Discord, “it’s where leaders of tomorrow are created today.” There are various avenues to choose from and people to guide you. This will help you strive towards your goals, particularly if you think you’re going in the wrong direction. No one is perfect, it’s inevitable to make mistakes, so who are we to judge others? It would be hypocritical to advocate cancel culture with this type of mindset. 

At the end of the day, we need to be responsible for dealing with stuff on the internet. We need to be accountable for our actions and consider how our actions affect others. There are healthy ways to handle situations and play Habbo. But we all need to be committed to doing the right thing and remembering that we are all here to have fun, because after all, it’s just a game. More importantly, we need to treat people with kindness—period.

Behind the Screen

by Infinicorn

tear apart your facial features
mind your nose, you ugly creature
don’t you know the way you grin
can bring about your following’s ruin

press your heart into their faces
wrap them in your false embraces
they can’t feel the love you hold
and numbers mean nothing when you grow old

select the parts of you to showcase
find a way to build up a fanbase
introduce yourself with stories
then redefine your categories

you believe these numbers will thrill you
but in the end none of them will fulfill you
feel your secrets caving in
switching your words till you start to blend in

give up, just let it all go
why hang on to a shell you don’t know
you’ve been gone for quite some time
if only you knew how to hit rewind

The Office of Joint Force Development

by k1e24

For this month’s Office in the Spotlight, I have chosen to shine the metaphorical torch onto the Office of Joint Force Development (OJFD). In doing so, we will look at their incredible work, office responsibilities and importance of OJFD in getting everyone up to speed regarding their training and education!

Let’s get a sense of some of the stuff that OJFD really does. OJFD, for the most part, is responsible for a large number of the IRDTs, FEATs, PTPs and DFMAPs that are hosted every single day! It is the largest office within USDF and is notoriously identified by their campaign cover hat and backpack. These personnel make sure that the USDF personnel have the right training to help them progress through their careers. They also ensure that our own training skills are up to par by grading each member of USDF. OJFD personnel are pushed to meet high standards of professionalism and efficiency within training, and in turn, they hold the rest of USDF accountable for the same. 

Here’s what some members had to say about the office:

1SG Goodtop:

“OJFD has been my office since I joined USDF and I can say that it has been an incredible experience. The commitment of our team to ensure all NCO’s are trained is impressive. The OJFD members are all very friendly and contribute to a team spirit that keeps us together. Our Command members are also very committed to the progression of the office and working together with us as a team.”

SgtMaj Emillyz:

“I like the big community and how helpful everyone is, it really does feel like a big family. I love the fact that my duties include providing training to potential future leaders, it’s rewarding and sometimes thrilling to see that I have trained someone who has progressed so far within their career and that I was  a part of their journey.”

CWO2 -Mythology?:

“OJFD is a great office, a lot of people consider it home and quite often it is someone’s first office in USDF, and it continues to be someone’s home long after they’ve moved onto other offices. Many personnel gain experience in OJFD allowing for them to have great career progression through USDF, particularly with the availability regarding a wider variety of Command opportunities. It’s also an important office as it provides the backbone of the training and education system for personnel.”

It is clear that many people in OJFD enjoy their work and the knowledge that one day they can look back and see that, even if it’s just through one training, they have helped personnel in some way to get to where they are now. OJFD has been and always will be an essential office for USDF at the current time and in the future. People often look back on their PTS profile to see who gave them promotions, but funnily enough, their FEAT, PTP and DFMAP trainers are just as nostalgic. It’s exciting to see who gave someone a training, as they may be a role model to you or vice versa.

Furthermore, in my opinion, OJFD is a crucial and important office for everyone in USDF. OJFD members have the chance to influence and shape the futures of our newest members by teaching them the basics and creating a lasting impression. However, they are also able to teach more advanced principles, depending on the type of training. The trainings that you obtain also set you up for other aspects of USDF. Consider FEAT {U}, which assists members in understanding other offices and some of their day to day operations. FEAT {G} teaches the key theories of communication. Both FEATs, among many others, provide knowledge that can be carried with you throughout your career.

OJFD plays a vital role in getting information to the members of USDF, so many OJFD members are easy to approach with questions. OJFD members seem to have a lot of fun with each other and the wider USDF community. Furthermore, members of OJFD seem to establish strong connections with each other.

POPPING Summertime Sweets

by J-Naut

It’s summertime! The world around us is filled with vibrant flowers blooming anew and chirping birds singing their songs every hour. The world is brimming with life, even though a majority of it is stuck inside their homes. We are all trying to handle the boredom and lack of excitement in our lives this year, and as this quarantine lengthens, hope is dwindling. However, fear not! I know it’s been ages since the last time you were able to have fun outside, but these recipes will surely help you to recall the good ol’ days.

First up… Popsicles!

These frosty, savory and sometimes tangy snacks have been with us for well over a century, maybe even before that! Who knows? 

They are a very easy item to make and the fruit of your labor is definitely worth it. 

  • What you will need:
  • A mold to make your Popsicle—if you don’t have a silicone mold, a paper/plastic cup will do just fine
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Medium/Large Mixing Bowl
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • ½ cup of boiled water
  • 150 grams of strawberries
  • 150 grams of peaches
  • 1 tbsp. of lemon juice

Note: This specific recipe is for a peach and strawberry flavor popsicle, but you can make your own variations with yogurt, granola or milk.


  • Dissolve ½ cup of sugar in ½ cup of boiled water, then let cool.
  • Purée the strawberries and peaches until it reaches the consistency of syrup.
  • Combine the fruit syrup with the sugar water and add the lemon juice.
  • Fill your molds with the mixture and insert the stick you’re going to hold your popsicle with. (Tip: you can cover the top of your mold with aluminum foil and poke the stick through to make sure the stick stays in place.)
  • Place the molds in the freezer for at least 45 minutes.
  • Remove from the molds and enjoy your summertime sweetness!

Next up… Pop Tarts!

This quick sweet snack is considered a staple in the dessert world from the western hemisphere. Pop Tarts were first introduced in 1964, with the frosted version taking off in 1967. If you are even moderately conscious about your health, you should know better than to eat the ones sold in your nearby grocery store as they’re absolutely packed with preservatives. That’s why making your own is a much better and healthier choice, plus it’s fun!

What you will need:

  • 2 cups of flour—with a little extra for rolling and kneading
  • 1 tsp. of salt
  • 1 tsp. of sugar
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter cut into little pieces
  • 4 tbsp. of cool water
  • 12 tbsp. of strawberry preserve
  • Powdered sugar


  • Whisk the flour, salt and sugar in a bowl until evenly mixed. 
  • Add the butter pieces to the mixture and blend until smooth and no pieces of butter are visible.
  • Add water and mix until the mixture starts to clump into dough. 
  • Knead the dough until it is nice and soft then roll into a ball and cut in half.
  • Roll the halves out into disks and let them chill for an hour.
  • Preheat your oven to 350-375°F and line a baking tray with some baking or parchment paper. 
  • Roll and trim the dough from one disk into a batch of rectangles. Make the rectangles slightly smaller than you want the size of your Pop Tarts to be.
  • Spread strawberry preserve on the rectangles, leaving at least a half inch (1.25 cm) border around each rectangle. 
  • Roll and trim the dough from the other disk into rectangles the same size as with the previous disk.
  • Place these rectangles on top of the rectangles with preserve, making sure to line up the edges. 
  • Gently press around the edges of each rectangle to seal the edges of the dough. You can also crimp the edges using a fork to help seal each side and to be more aesthetically pleasing (but make sure not to press all the way through).
  • With a toothpick or fork, poke a few holes at the center of the top layer to allow for heat to escape and proper cooking all the way through. 
  • Place on the baking tray and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Decorate the top of each Pop Tart as you wish, though powdered sugar will do just fine.
  • Serve warm and enjoy!

Hopefully these treats were enjoyable to make and just as wonderful to eat. The world of food is vast and can cater to your every need, so keep exploring.

That’s the Team Spirit

by Noahiinq

It’s USDF vs. HIA and the Titans have just entered the field. The crowd fills the stands as excitement and a little bit of anxiety fills the air. On the radio, commentators prepare to showcase the best plays of the game. Everyone knows just how treasured USDF football matches are, but the impact of sports culture extends far beyond Habbo.

The impact that sports has on our society is massive. Millions of people spend their weekends watching all sorts of sports, with football and basketball being among the most popular. We are also seeing a rise in new types of sports as our society progresses, with the addition of the video game division. Billions of dollars are spent per year, per month, even per weekend within the sporting sector as it generates high revenue and tourism. What the sporting industries spend, they get back in full with a large profit. The numbers tend to add up quickly as things become more and more expensive. 

On average, Americans spend up to $100 billion collectively in just ONE year with $56 billion spent on attending sporting events. This includes tickets, transportation, food, and beverages. During the Super Bowl, a hotdog can cost $12 and a chicken sandwich $14 with merchandise in the hundreds! The amount of money that Americans are willing to spend on sports culture can sometimes border on insanity. Even though the prices can be outrageous for any game, Americans still choose to spend money to take an airplane or drive for hours just to see their favorite team play at a game they spent even more money to attend. For example, a ticket to Super Bowl LIV cost anywhere from $4,220 to $60,000.

Regardless of the personal loss of money, sports has a positive effect on society as a whole and on an individual level. Watching and playing sports provides a way to escape the stress of our daily lives and come together as a community. Coming together in that way can also boost morale, with many feeling they belong to a team. It provides a sense of alliance or healthy competition as people attend games or just sit at home with friends, rooting for their team or just the game in general. 

Each year more and more amateur watchers, who are new to sports, are willing to pay just as much as hardcore fans to join the experience. Quite often it’s the atmosphere and experience with their friends that is being paid for, just so they can have one of those “once in a lifetime” moments where they see a game that goes down in history. It can also be said that people chase the more thrilling, high intensity and tension filled environments, fans or not, just for that particular experience. 

There’s nothing like sitting in a stadium with hundreds of thousands of people all fired up, sitting on the edge of their seats with the intensity ever-growing, right up to the last second of the game. It can make even the most amateur sports fans jump out of their seats and cheer on the winning team. This is a universal feeling, as sports is something everyone worldwide can get behind. This unity of sports through belonging to a team but also competing is also shown through the Olympic Games where countries across the globe put aside their differences and issues to come together for enjoyment, entertainment and collaboration.

Sports will continue to make all sorts of impacts on our society. It is up to you to choose whether we all are a part of that impact. Sports are awesome, honestly, and people deserve the right to watch and be a part of the experience. USDF even contributes to this! Each event we host between allies and among ourselves, such as the Titans football games, is amazing. It has always generated good feedback, and we all hope it never ends. 

Even if you aren’t a fan of Habbo football, you can’t help but root for our talented team, The Titans. So pop down to their next game and support a free sporting event, one where you can get this same experience, but even more personal, by cheering on your friends and co-workers.

Just for Laughs

by Maxite

It’s been quite a bummer the past few months. A pandemic has resulted in pretty much the entire world shutting down in one form or another. Fortunately, Habbo has served as an escape from the drama of reality with activity being at its highest in years. New people are discovering the joys that Habbo has to offer, along with the many veterans returning to see what has changed. 

The Libertarian has discovered that some of USDF’s newest members that have joined during this lockdown are none other than former members of the musical group One Direction that swept the world in popularity, and they have agreed to give us an interview.

LIBERTARIAN: So what made you decide to join Habbo?

LOUIS: I was checking my Twitter, and I came across news stories of this game, and I just had to check it out.

LIAM: Since we were collaborating on a few things, the rest of us figured “why not see what this is about?”

LIBERTARIAN: But somehow you ended up in USDF together. Why join a Habbo military?

NIALL: I just wandered into one of the more populated rooms, and it was just this giant dance club. It was pretty crazy, but I wanted to relax by doing something a bit different than what I normally do.

HARRY: Yea. We figured a military would be pretty much the opposite of music, we wanted to try something different to our real lives, you know?

LIBERTARIAN: You all ended up in different branches within USDF. How did that happen?

NIALL: I just joined the Army because that’s what the person at the front desk suggested to join.

LOUIS: I knew it had to be Marines for me. So much power in that branch.

HARRY: I had played Habbo before when I was younger back when I was in school. I’m familiar with being a part of groups and managed to get a transfer into the Navy based on my past experience roleplaying back in the day.

LIAM: I wanted to be a plane. Woosh!

LIBERTARIAN: Any plans for the future in the USDF? Any offices you want to join?

HARRY: Just looking forward to winning branch wars!

LIAM: I want to join OJSIG and arrest some bad guys.

NIALL: I was leaning towards mess hall or engineering, since those seem like cool military professions.

HARRY: Those aren’t things in USDF, Niall.

NIALL: Tank operator, then?

LIAM: Niall, you should join the Air Force. We’ll set you straight.

LIBERTARIAN: Have you run across any interesting people during your time on Habbo?

LOUIS: I dunno about interesting, but one of the Senior Commanders looks kinda like David Hasselhoff.

LIAM: David wouldn’t play Habbo, would he?

HARRY: Most definitely not. He’s more of a Fortnite guy.

NIALL: I’ve met lots of nice people in the USDF.

LIAM: Of course, because OJSIG fires the mean ones.

NIALL: Oh. That makes sense.

LIBERTARIAN: What’s the most memorable thing you’ve experienced at the USDF?

LIAM: That STAB game. It’s so much fun, and I keep killing Harry every time we play it.

HARRY: The practices for branch wars. So many varieties of games, you could never get bored.

NIALL: It’s gotta be the people that do it for me. I’ve made so many amazing friends from all around the globe here.

LOUIS: The uniforms.

LIAM: What?

LOUIS: You’ve never appreciated how good a person can look in nice clothing?

HARRY: Oh yea.

We were asked by the members of One Direction to hide the identities of their Habbo accounts so that they can enjoy a relaxing time in USDF. Who knows who else might be playing this game with us, or who might be sitting in the seat next to you. It could be a famous celebrity, or it could be a potential best friend.
