uhm actually saying “go touch grass” is really offense because some people are allergic to grass and you’re basically telling them to kill themselves via fjdjfhskdiewnaldkskjdjenw 10;8:!/&&/ snjdjdjdjebssk xdmdmw 7 (walked into an electric fence)

TIL Elvis once handed Alice Cooper one of his guns and asked him to point it at him to show off his karate skills. Cooper later said that he genuinely wanted to pull the trigger to do something legendary with his life, but Elvis knocked the gun out of his hand and pinned him before he could fire.
A British wildlife sanctuary has been forced to separate five parrots who wouldn’t stop swearing at visitors. Keepers say the birds encouraged each other to keep cursing, and had to be moved from the main outdoor aviary.
Billy, Eric, Tyson, Jade and Elsie were removed from view this week, The Associated Press reports. They recently joined the Lincolnshire Wildlife Centre’s colony of 200 African gray parrots in August, were put in quarantine together and quickly overwhelmed the staff with their naughty language.
“We are quite used to parrots swearing, but we’ve never had five at the same time,” the center’s chief executive, Steve Nichols, told AP. “Most parrots clam up outside, but for some reason these five relish it.”
According to Nichols, none of the zoo’s visitors complained about the parrots, and most found them amusing.
“When a parrot tells you to ‘f*** off’ it amuses people very highly,” he said. “It’s brought a big smile to a really hard year.”
Still, keepers thought it would be best to keep them away from children so not to ruffle any feathers. They were separated and moved to various different areas of the wildlife center so they are unable to provoke each other,
Nichols told BBC News that the parrots “swear to trigger reaction or a response,” so seeing people shocked or laughing only encourages the birds to curse more.
“With the five, one would swear and another would laugh and that would carry on,” he said.
“I’m hoping they learn different words within colonies,” Nichols added. “But if they teach the others bad language and I end up with 250 swearing birds, I don’t know what we’ll do.”
Macron has absolutely fucking had it with the anti vaxxers.
The French can be very brutal when they have to be.
Ask Marie Antoinette about that one.
Ok but this is the sensible way to frame public policy. Those who have done their part for society get to participate in it once again, while those who refuse to do their civic duty are just facing the consequences of their actions. If you don’t want the vaccine, you don’t get to make it everyone else’s problem. It’s great!
just saw a video compilation of makeup tiktokers showing their makeup with the lights they use for videos on and then just with normal room lights to show “how my makeup really looks in person” and they were all like “see it’s normal to have bumps and texture in your skin, social media is lying to you >:( no one has smooth skin and beauty gurus fake their smooth skin with lights and/or post editing to sell you foundation” babygirl i hate to say this but you literally just showed me the special lights you use in your videos to make your makeup appear flawless and your skin smooth exactly who do you think are the evil social media people making everyone so self-conscious about their skin texture. how can you have so little self awareness that you complain about a problem while showing how you directly contribute to creating it
not to shit on an entire category but i think that if you’re an influencer / makeup artist / fitness blogger you can’t just occasionally address the problem and be like “yeah actually my life / makeup / body isn’t half as perfect as you see on social media and it’s really shitty that social media makes us so insecure about our life and physical appearance” when your entire activity and livelihood depend so crucially on you advertising yourself and your life as perfect and creating those same insecurities you complain about. like these people are out there blabbing about how “social media” make us insecure when they are not only directly creating the problem but also profiting from its existence, like babygirl either you shift your activity to actually doing those things for fun (if that’s even possible because that would require 1. that it’s possible to do those things exclusively for the fun of it and 2. that you were doing those things for fun in the first place) and consciously work towards not creating insecurities in people who consume your content or you shut the fuck up and change career
Some day I want to see a show that does the “no filler episodes” thing from the opposite direction. Just a whole season worth of low-stakes character pieces that seem to move the overall story absolutely nowhere, then episode 26 pulls all the triggers at once and this massive Rube Goldberg machine of a plot the show’s been quietly setting up in the background the whole time hits you like a truck.
… I honestly can’t put it into the words in a way that would do it any justice but…
I feel like I am watching history unfold as I continue to consume Lil Nas X’s music. You cannot tell me it’s not that deep because it actually is.
LNX is out here being unapologetically gay and releasing hit after hit where his queerness is front and fucking center in an industry that already held him up as the golden child making “safe” music like Old Town Road. He forced his way into the spotlight and then used it to highlight social inequity amongst society aimed at black lgbtq folks specifically and does it all without missing in his music, which is clearly fucking important to him.
A young, black, queer artist has gone fucking supernova and he’s giving hope to those who need it the most. Ten years ago this wouldn’t have been possible.
Lil Nas X said “A sign of the times every time that I speak” and meant that shit. I can’t wait to see what he does next.
