“So we have these Santas at work, right, okay? We have black and we have white Santas. And they’re like creepy, five-foot tall, lifelike animatronic… like, Santas that hold plates of cookies and milk, and they kinda look like they could wake up and come to life and murder you in your sleep– and they don’t include batteries, but we have these Santas. Like nothing screams ‘festive holiday cheer’ like a big, hulking Santa. Um. Nothin’ will jingle your jangles more.
So, um, this woman comes in and she’s like, “Do you have these?” and I’m like, “Oh my god, yeah!” So a couple weeks ago we sold out of our white Santas, and we are down to like, three black Santas. And so, I take her to the aisle, I show her the Santas, and the first thing out of her mouth is, “I’m not racist, but…” and I’m like, well, I can’t– I’m not in the position to decide if you are or not, but if like– if I could use context clues and infer, uh, I would say maybe that you might be. And three, we’re talking about Santa. Like– (stuttering) did we switch subjects?
And so, um, I’m in like, I– the next thing that pops out of her mouth is like, “This is not right.” and I’m like, okay, I’m sorry, but this is what the picture was. And she’s like, “No. Santa is white.” And I’m like, oh no, okay. Okay. So I’m in– I’m about to tell her, I’m like, mid-sentence, like, “I’m sorry, do you want me to go call another store, do you need me to, like, write you a raincheck just in case we we get any more.” And she’s like, “This is wrong, I want them taken down.” She interrupts me, says that, and I’m like, (pause). I like, look around, and I’m like, is she talking to me? Is this, like, my own, like, personal hell? But like, of course it is.
So, um, I’m like, “I can’t take these Santas down.” And she’s like, “Why not?!” And I’m like, “You either have to buy them, or take them down yourself.” And that was like, the stupidest thing I could have ever said, because– (sighs) she takes this bag, with like, Jesus’s face, like, slammed right in the middle as a design– it’s big– she takes it off her shoulder, and starts beating these black Santas! She starts beating these Santas down, they were like, falling down… and I’m like, oh my god! What– what is happening?
So like, I step in the middle of her and these Santas and I’m like, “Ma’am, ma’am, you need to leave, you need to stop, or I’m going to have to call someone.” So she like, stops, and she’s like, beet red, and like, huffin’ and puffin’, and she like, looks at me and I can tell she’s just trying to get like, a one-liner in, and she’s like, “The Santa I know is white.” And then she walks away. And I’m like, well– I’m processing what’s happening, while also thinking, like, the Santa you know? Santa’s not real. So unless you’re using an ouija board to contact good old Kris Kringle, um, from like, B.C. or whenever, I’m like, that’s pretty impressive, but how ya doin’ that. And, um, I– the last thought that ran through my mind is that, I’m like, I would hate to be in the room with her when she finds out that Jesus is not white.”
Anyone have the gif’s of the Chilean goalkeeper Christiane Endler lifting two of her teammates with ease.
I need them for um reasons lol
Let’s take a look at it one more time
Just so we’re clear about what an absolute unit this woman is
Update: She can actually hold up three team mates.
i wanna make this post for trans and nonbinary people who still call themselves “girls” or “boys” on accident sometimes.
it’s ok. you’ve internalized that for your entire life. you’ve been classified as a “he” or a “she” for your entire life. if you are not out, you probably hang out with people who call you a girl or a boy, and who laugh and and joke and have no idea.
and so it’s ok if you slip up. it’s ok.
it’s a process, even learning to get your own gender right.
Trope where there’s one girl in a group of guys but then over the course of the series they all eventually realize that they’re trans and start transitioning and it turns out that all along it was one guy in a group of girls.
The boy comes out at the end of the second to last season after the leader of the group who’s been out the longest calls them a girl gang and he goes “Uh, actually Keisha… about that…” and she goes “Oh don’t tell me. Not you too.” and he goes “Uh, yeah I was gonna tell my mom first but what the hell I’m Caleb now.”
The first episode ends with the one who will be called Keisha saying “Let’s go boys and Steph” and in the last episode she says “Lat’s go girls. And Caleb!”
The series has nothing to do with being trans of course. It’s an ongoing joke at worst. It’s a group of teens that fight corn demons in the midwest.
There’s a pair of twins who pose together like team rocket whenever they’re making an announcement. When they come out they make sure to pick rhyming names. They’re not identical twins they’re just like that.
RK900 is a sub. He can top or bottom but he’s ALWAYS submissive.
Y’all are saying “stronger, faster, more resilient” + “cool eyes” = sadistic dom, as if physical appearance could determine someone’s sexual preferences *rolls eyes*.
But hear me out. This makes absolutely no sense canon-wise. Why was RK900 created in the first place???
Oh, right, because Connor was not obedient enough. Because he was a rebel who never listenened to anyone’s orders, be it Hank’s or Amanda’s.
Look at RK900 in its restrictive clothing:
Standing straight, patiently listening to Amanda and Connor talking. Everything in his behavior says ‘well-behaved to a fault’. Hell, he doesn’t even react when Amanda pats his shoulder like she’s presenting a racing horse.
TLDR; RK900 is a sub, and, occasionally, a service top. Connor is a dom, and, occasionally a power bottom.
Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
The thing about the “and they were roommates” girl is I bet she really did just say something truly wild or explosive that totally warranted the unbelieving “and they were roommates”
I think you met Chris Redfield.

This haunts me three days later
So you know how I have Leon’s name tattooed, and someone asked me “what is the Leon on your arm for?” And I explained it is for Leon Kennedy from Resident Evil, and they just went like pffff and as they walked away they said “his ass smells like onions” and I’m like ?
the best thing about this is that when there’s plenty of resources, domesticated cats will naturally form colonies. in these colonies female cats raise their kittens communally with their kin. so you get situations where moms will raise kittens with their daughters from a previous litter, cats from the same litter will raise kittens together, etc. so not only does this little old kitty see her human as family, she is also excited to help her with her kitten.

That’s because it’s not skilled labor, anyone can do those things. In order to make good money, you have to be able to do something that not everyone can do.
ARTISTS aren’t skilled labor? Really.
Make me some art RIGHT NOW. Paint me a portrait in oil-based acrylic.
What? You don’t know that acrylics are water based, not oil based? Gee, that’s something only a skilled painter might know.
Or instead compose me a song. Design packaging for this new product we’re launching in 10 days. Make me a webpage with eye-popping graphics you didn’t steal from another site.
Artists do all that. In fact, every manufactured thing you touch passed through the hands of a skilled artist at some point.
FAST FOOD! If fast food is ‘unskilled’ then why does Wendys, McDonalds (et al) expend time on training employees? Surely if any asshole off the street could do the work they can just slip right in there and start slinging happy meals on day one, right?
Do you know the correct EH/OSHA-approved way to wash your hands? Do it wrong and you are literally violating the law.
Quick: what do the symptoms of Hepatitis-A look like?
Or let’s talk janitorial services. Do YOU think you can clean an entire floor of an office building in the allotted time? Where does the trash go? The recycling? How do you get ahold of the waste removal company when the dumpsters are inexplicably full at 4am? Whom do you call? What’s the account number? Is this even your job to worry about? If the dumpsters are full where do you put a night’s worth of collected trash?
What do you do with hazardous waste you might encounter, if you’re cleaning (say) an industrial workspace? Dispose of it incorrectly and that’s a crime.
What’s the procedure for when you encounter a trespasser in a secure building where supposedly nobody but you is working? Can you identify a fake or expired employee badge? Are you supposed to? Your training probably covered that.
How much would we have to pay you, dear @ithinkthatthismustbetheplace, to deal with a seriously clogged toilet? Shit-smeared walls, standing waste water, the entire place trashed as if it was 3am after a frat party? You have less than an hour to return that restroom to pristine condition. And no, building services is not going to help you.
You don’t think that requires skill?
Or adequate compensation?
let’s abolish all clocks, the concept of time itself. live by sunlight. primal instincts and internal clocks ONLY
when is the next bus getting here? its a surprise :)
That’s no different from how buses already operate (:

Note from a graphic designer who has to fix this shit all day: rich black is prettier sure but for the love of the gods don’t use it for text if it’s going on newsprint. If its anything other than solid black it will bleed out and become unreadable.
Half my job is fixing this mistake all day from people who really really should know better. And now you know!
