What do I always say? Most important thing in this town is, when you’re making money, you buy a house in town. You don’t rent. Hollywood real estate means you live here. You’re not just visiting, not just passing through.
ONCE UPON A TIME... IN HOLLYWOOD

An interesting thing about VeggieTales is that the Bible stories it retells are mostly restricted to the Old Testament, because the creator made a promise to his mother that he would never depict Jesus as a vegetable
I demand to know what Christ’s veggiesona is
There’s a toy set that depicts nativity
Jesus is a carrot
no, you ignorant peon, that is laura the carrot’s baby brother PLAYING jesus in a nativity scene. laura is playing the angel, at the top. if you knew anything about anything at all, you would know that these are characters from the veggie tales tv show depicting the nativity. you can see larry the cucumber, pa grape, and mr. lunt are playing the wise men, you brainless sack of excrement. you absolute buffoon. you know nothing. don’t fucking try me.

Vote. Because to vote is to show you are still willing to fight.
Not even on the same team.
This about protecting HER sense of modesty, not what the world will let her show. There are a lot of misconceptions about hijab. Ask a muslim what it means to them rather than looking to someone outside their faith to interpret.
setup and punchline
The artist is luo li rong
The statue doesn’t have big enough titties to have been made by a man.
I know I’ve reblogged this before but the schadenfreude is too delicious.
By the way, the statue is called La mélodie oubliée (The Forgotten Melody). Luo Li Rong also painted it:
And here she and the statue are in a more formal setting (museum or art show, I can’t tell):
“Dork ass losers”
That beautiful statue started from this:
Ms. Luo Lirong graduated from China Central Academy Of Fine Arts. She’s a very talented artist. More of her works:
Beautiful. Extraordinary talent

Because treating people fairly often means treating them differently.
This is something that I teach my students during the first week of school and they understand it. Eight year olds can understand this and all it costs is a box of band-aids.
I have each students pretend they got hurt and need a band-aid. Children love band-aids. I ask the first one where they are hurt. If he says his finger, I put the band-aid on his finger. Then I ask the second one where they are hurt. No matter what that child says, I put the band-aid on their finger exactly like the first child. I keep doing that through the whole class. No matter where they say their pretend injury is, I do the same thing I did with the first one.
After they all have band-aids in the same spot, I ask if that actually helped any of them other than the first child. I say, “Well, I helped all of you the same! You all have one band-aid!” And they’ll try to get me to understand that they were hurt somewhere else. I act like I’m just now understanding it. Then I explain, “There might be moments this year where some of you get different things because you need them differently, just like you needed a band-aid in a different spot.”
If at any time any of my students ask why one student has a different assignment, or gets taken out of the class for a subject, or gets another teacher to come in and help them throughout the year, I remind my students of the band-aids they got at the start of the school year and they stop complaining. That’s why eight year olds can understand equity.
I have to laugh at the folks in the notes claiming this is fake because “no 2-yr old is that advanced”. My guys, I work at a daycare almost exclusively with 2-3 year olds and let me tell you some of the wild shit I heard this last week alone,
“Uhhh, i ASSUME we’re going to the playground soon??” -2.5 year old girl
“[3 year old boy] pushed me because he doesn’t have a manners.” -2 yr old girl
“Did you spill your water?” “No no no no it’s not a concern” -2 yr old boy (while running away, dripping wet)
Kids are hilarious and smarter than you think
I don’t think I even told you guys about the six months he spent saying “fuck” instead of “truck.”
Came up to me the other day, the middle of his pants totally soaked, and said “mama, I’m having a situation called ‘I peed in my pants.’”
Upon being served 1% milk for the first time, instead of his regular 2%: “is this water?”
Me: “no, it’s milk”
Kid: “but are you sure?”
Today we were walking along and he asked me “How many Octobers is it today?” I told him it was the 21st.
He tried a bite of his hot soup at dinner and made a face and said “Mama, my soup is a little too temperature for me.”
The two year-old is now a solid two and a half. Just now, he was sitting on the couch playing with his pretend flip phone and he frowned and said “for gods sake. My battery is empty.”
The other day at breakfast I asked him if he was going to eat any more of his oatmeal and he said “no, I think I’m just gonna move on with my life.”
If you don’t have a lot of interactions with young children:
- Kids are smarter than you think
- Six months makes a really big difference when that is 1/5 of the total time you’ve been alive
All this, and also, they can tell you lots about their favorite things. My 2 year old nephew can tell you all about Star Wars (the 8 movies he’s seen at least) and loves going out of his way to bring up how Anakin was good and bad and good again when he died. Trust me, little kids learn and mimic and reenact all the things they get attached to.
Also, he named his first fish Jengo Fett, and all following fish Boba Fett, so juries still out on how much he understands clones.
