what about reduce reuse recycle
sometimes i just want to laugh at how absurd everything is. like, jeff bezos has enough money to literally end the war in yemen. he could literally end it. nearly any celebrity in the world has the money to fix the flint water crisis. like there is a handful of rich people who, if they just put their money where their fucking mouths were, could solve so many problems. but they dont!!! they just buy another house, or a car, or a company where they don’t pay their workers fair wages so they can get richer. it’s just!!!!!!! sometimes i want to laugh bc it’s so absurd and this is why we say eat the rich.
everything about Sting is funny
his real name
the fact that he was a Captain Planet villain named Zarm
his inexplicable normie vibes??? hello??? I am fascinated by how uninteresting he manages to be as a person. he is so… 90’s TV special.
okay story time!!!
my grandma and grandpa traveled to australia for a vacation in the 80s. my aunt called them after a few days to see how they were doing. they gushed abt the experience, the people, the sights, the food. “and we met the NICEST young man! we had dinner w him just the other night!”
my aunt asked them to elaborate. “what was his name, honey?” said my grandmother, as they tried to remember. my grandfather exclaimed. “ah! his name is String! String!”
my aunt lost it. “STING????”
my grandparents had been staying on the fancy top floor of a fancy hotel. it turned out that Sting had been staying in the only other penthouse on that floor. they had absolutely no idea who he was, but they adored him and thought he was very polite and charming, and I imagine he was happy to encounter people who were unaware of his celebrity. he took them out for dinner a couple times.
when youre laying down and your pet walks across your internal organs and youre like OW FUCK and they dont even care they just keep standing on your spleen like its their job
this is why i keep my skin closed at all times.
you….. you what
A lot of reducing your stress and your kid’s stress when parenting just involves asking yourself why you want them to do a thing. Neurotypical or not, but especially neurodivergent kids. Is there actually a point to it or do you just want it done because ‘that’s the way it is’ or you’re worried other parents will look at you weird?
Socks drive her crazy when they’re not inside out? Why do they need to be right side out? Why is that worth making a kid uncomfortable all day and starting a recurring argument over?
Your kid needs to eat at the table standing because otherwise he’ll fall out of the chair constantly wiggling and hanging out of it? Ok. Move the chair and let him stand and don’t let your mom give him a hard time about it. He’s eating food and at the table. You’re already winning .
Kid has sensory meltdown in public? Yelling and rushing them because you’re embarrassed will only make things so much worse and add you as part of the problem. Leave the store, sit down in the pasta aisle and hug them, pull up cooking videos on your phone, just do what you need to do like taking care of another panicking distressed human is more important than a few old ladies giving you stink eye.
The more we loosen unnecessary rules our parents gave us the less stress we put on ourselves and our kids. The more room we make for people to be open about their emotions. The more we set a better example to people around us and show them that allowances don’t have to be hard and kids and adults alike deserve some breathing room.
SPINY LUMPSUCKER: *exists*
EVERYONE, INCLUDING SPINY LUMPSUCKER:
Spiny lumpsuckers are glorious, goofy and globose members of the Pacific coast’s northern, cold-water seaweed communities. Lumpsuckers get their name from their bulbous bodies and their specialized pelvic fins that are fashioned into a suction cup, allowing these preposterous pisces to stick around, quite littorally!
Ive met way more than 10 cops
Ed: pulls his shirt up revealing all the angsty scars like something out of a teenage romance
Winry, tracing her fingers over the scars delicately with the touch of a flower petal: what happened to you……..
Ed: well THATS from when al flung me into the sky and that ones from fighting a swan and THATS when I went ice skating with Fort Briggs-
Winry: I can’t help but notice you haven’t mentioned this puncture wound that goes all the way through your torso
Ed: w e l l

How many times and how many ways do you TERFs, garden variety transmisogynists and transphobes, and crypto-TERFs need to be told to get the fuck off my lawn. You are not welcome here. I know none of you care about personal boundaries but it’s literally in my about that I don’t want you here, I don’t want you interacting with me in any fucking capacity. You are by definition unsafe to be around, you make spaces unsafe. My content is not for you, was not made with you in mind, is not applicable to any theory which excludes and promotes violence towards trans women.
