I love….. adding unnecessary e’s to words like spicey or babey. ……. it makes the words pop
Unnecessary, redundant, sloppy, visually displeasing, and a sign of not understanding the English language. But yeah, they “pop” I guess. Just like my assumption that you arent average.
oooo!!! buzzkill syndrome, i see. a true example, what a case study.
someone is angery!!!
what a bitche
The most realistic part about this is that this is clearly a funeral, which means you died a week before this and the manager still didn’t plan to cover your shifts
I was hospitalized when I was 19 due to severe reactions to a medication and texted my boss to let him know before giving my phone to my mom so I could go in for a procedure. While I was in (with no access to my phone) my boss decided that
A) I was definitely lying and just skipping out on work
B) The appropriate thing to do would be to call my mom (she was listed as my emergency contact) to let her know that I was lying about being in the hospital and skipping work
C) When my mom informed him that I was not lying, and was in fact in the hospital and it was quite serious, that it was appropriate to demand to know when I’d be back and
D) Inform my mom repeatedly how inconvenient this was for him and how difficult it was going to be to have my shifts covered
My mom, in essence, told him to go fuck himself and that I’d be back when the doctors told me I was able. But don’t think for a moment that this meme is anything less than completely accurate. Bosses are the worst.
Wow wtf HIV/AIDS was discovered by Flossie Wong-Staal, an Chinese-American woman, and she’s the reason the HIV test even exists. AND THEN she invented the molecular knife that lead to treatments for HIV/AIDS. And she’s STILL ALIVE. We don’t hear about the contributions of Women of Color enough, my word. Madness.
you can always tell a major breakthrough is made by a woman, a woc or any poc because it’s either completely ignored or never credited like it just happened by itself
“I confront [white guilt] every year, about a month into my course on racism, among [white] students who come to me in tears because they cannot deal with the racism that goes on in their families or their home towns or their student residences. Their tears are the result of genuine anguish, care, and a desire to learn and to change. I confront similar attitudes among my colleagues, and I am similarly gratified by their concern. But those who experience white guilt need to learn three things: 1) People of colour are generally not moved by their tears, and may even see those tears as a self-indulgent expression of white privilege. It is after all a great privilege to be able to express one’s emotion openly and to be confident that one is in a cultural context where one’s feelings will be understood. 2) Guilt is paralysing. It serves no purposes; it does no good. It is not a substitute for activism. 3) White guilt is often patronizing if it leads to pity for those of colour. Pity gets in the way of sincere and meaningful human relationships, and it forestalls the frankness that meaningful relationships demand. White guilt will not change the racialized environment; it will only make the guilty feel better.”
The more you look at this picture, the more anxious it becomes.
this is just a normal waffle house
there is a bloody handprint on the door
There is somethung under the counter with the cups
Blind man reading news paper
Skull in the coffee
Milk is $15
Lady’s hand is a tentacle
the bleeding pie, the eyeball and fingers on the blind man’s plate…
I was trying to find something nobody else had seen yet, when I realized…
Look right above the tentacle arm. The second man at the buffet, what the hell is he doing? He’s either throwing up or eating an octopus.
I think his face is just tentacles.
The blind man has gills.
Scariest detail: this image was ripped from the creator’s site and vandalized (edited to remove the watermark), then reuploaded for viral fame without so much as a mention of the artist’s name.
That said, the earlier observation about milk being $15 is off - artist confirms this is based on a 1920’s diner, so the price would be in cents.
The table under the journal is lacquered with ants.
The person holding the skull-creamed coffee paints the underside of their nails. Either that or their natural nails grow red.
The journal’s writing, intentionally made hard to read and partially obscured, is somewhat of a cheat to all the things amiss in the scene. (https://comments.deviantart.com/1/661961724/4372574544) I can make out: “… and eyeball … have to think he is less strange than the horrifying creature that seems to have inhabited the cabinet behind him … all tentacles and teeth … (obscured by cup) … Where in the world can be found such nightmares?!”
Reblogging for the correct source (I didn’t even notice the OP wasn’t the artist oops).
There’s a second one, and there’s even more in this
AAAHH, cool, but AAAAAHHHH
Just a regular morning in Innsmouth.
Passing your perception checks isn’t always a great idea
There’s another one!
These are so neat
did you guys know that the robot genre of science fiction sprung up as a critique of the way in which industrialization reduced workers to taking up monotonous, unskilled factory jobs in order to earn profit, jobs which in turn alienated them from their own humanity? did you know that the theory of the alienation of the self under capitalistic mode of production is a core principle of marxism? did you know that robot itself comes from a czech playwright who, for a science fiction play, coined the word as a derivative of the czech term robota, meaning forced labor? did you know that the robot genre is rooted in anti-capitalist sentiment?
Who knows about Sally Hemings?
She was Thomas Jefferson’s slave.
Called his “mistress,” but how can you be a mistress when you were a slave, a child, and could not consent? Had absolutely no choice?
She bore him 6, perhaps as many as 8 children. He kept her locked in a basement room.
The room was recently unearthed, and DNA evidence has proven the lineage of Sally’s children.
She was beteeen 12 and 14 years old when he started raping her, and Jefferson was in his forties. He freed the children that he had with her, but not Sally. Her daughter had to free her mother after Jefferson passed away.
This is not taught in schools. This side of history. We are supposed to consider the founding fathers as great men, fighting for justice and freedom, guided by God… when they are evil men. Selfish men who did nothing, save that it was for their own aggrandisement, personal benefit, and financial gain.
I would also like to add that Sally was Jefferson’s dead wife’s half sister. Sally’s mother was raped by her owner, who was Martha (wife of Thomas) Jefferson’s father.
These people left a legacy.
A legacy of entitlement under the most criminal of circumstances, and White Supremacist beliefs which pervade U.S. Society and Culture, to this very day.
While you’re at it:
Malik was a 23 year old paraplegic man who was shot at 84 times by the police.
He was sitting in the passengers side of a car and someone had called the cops on the driver of the car, a White Woman, for yelling.
Before the cops murdered Malik, they told the White Woman to “Run”.

truly there is no other website where the entire userbase violently bewails every single update, and a third party valiantly, actively undoes every new feature so users can continue to use an increasingly different version of the site than the one the developers are actually creating. effervescent
Posting this because it’s absolutely disgusting and I can’t find anyone talking about it!
Australians have been protesting against indigenous deaths in custody and for black lives matter for ages now with no change and the police responding by inciting violence against protestors.
I went to the first BLM protest held in Adelaide after the murder of George Floyd, at that point there had been 432 Indigenous Deaths in custody, that was only a few weeks ago and the number has risen to 438. There has NEVER been a single conviction.
This is how the South Australian government have chosen to respond, further weaponising and militarising the police force. They know it’s wrong, they know it’s against the needs of the people’s, they don’t care - it’s clear their priority Is control.
PLEASE raise some noise about this, I know it’s hard, there seems to be something new we have to raise awareness about every hour but australian issues and even more so anywhere that’s not Sydney or maybe Melbourne there isn’t any media attention except MAYBE local papers/stations. This is going to endanger the lives of indigenous people in Adelaide, this is going to kill them.
I go into the city everyday for school and work, I can already tell you the way the police treat the indigenous peoples, homeless, substance users, and anyone who is vulnerable there is horrific, I can’t imagine the level of risk this is now imposing by adding these ridiculously unnecessary weapons. The majority of our crime is related to substance disorders (meth captial of the world), homelessness, mental health crises and theft - these aren’t issues the police solve! These are issues the police aggravate and escalate.
I’m sorry if this isn’t the most coherent post but my blood is boiling, as someone who knows exactly how the vulnerable are treated by police in Adelaide and especially the CBD this is extremely concerning.
Please share around, make some noise, this is not okay. Silence has lethal consequences.
