aka, life in our known universe. with liberties taken, by icarus, age 10.
hi there. let me introduce myself. i’m your next door neighbor, mars. you know i wanted to tell you, i think we have a lot in common :o i mean we’re about the same size, we’re both about the same distance from the…
I just got free fries from Burger King. Evidently they thought it was appropriate for St. Patrick’s day. If I was Irish I don’t think I’d be proud of that.
Anyway, they’ve been giving them away on the 17th and 18th, so if you want free food and you’re local to a BK, you can’t go wrong.
You don’t need a coupon or buy anything anything, just ask for them.
Of course its the “value” size, which is their way not to say “small” since that’s a bad word when it comes to fast food for some dumb reason.
Honestly, the smallest size fries they offer at BK is more than what any sane person would consider a reasonable serving, especially along with a burger and “small” drink large enough to take a bath in.
So free lunch, and I’m ahead several dollars. Yay.
Also, they have green ketchup packets. You can party like its 2000 when oddly colored ketchup was all the rage in the US.
i dont get how making education more accessible to people is a bad thing especially w/ re: to things that are difficult
i am dumb, thank you for making things easier for me to understand so that i can get excited about learning about them too
it’s not that it’s a bad thing. it’s that educating the populace makes the rich people nervous.
because if you have an intelligent population of voters, they want intelligent voter things. they don’t want more seasons of the jersey shore, they want infrastructure building programs for their communities. they don’t want ipad3, they want renewable sources of energy.
they don’t want minimum wage shit jobs. they want jobs that challenge their intelligence and utilise their individual strengths. they don’t want psychotic bosses who are underqualified for their jobs, they want to BE the boss.
they don’t want to pay someone to do their taxes or handle their stocks. they want to cut out the middle man, save money, and do those things themselves. because they realize they can.
they don’t want to war with random countries to ensure we get oil. they want to concentrate on forming alliances for the sake of all nations, and help people out.
they don’t want to let corporations vote, they want to petition governments so that the voice of the people can be heard.
they don’t want to wallow in ignorance and stagnation. they want to be able to say ‘you know, today i’m going to make an intelligent and informed choice.’
this scares the shit out of rich people, because intelligent folks generally take money away from the rich and disperse it better amoungst themselves. they sweep away the broken rules that allow the rich to remain as powerful as they are. they raise generations of kids who want to become astronauts and scientists and artists and cinematographers and writers and directors and phycisists and engineers and mechanics and not a generation who aspire to be on “16 and pregnant.”
intelligent voters are dangerous to the status quo. that’s why certain parties don’t like it.
that’s also why obama begged the american population to devote one year to higher education of some form be it college or a tech school or a night class or whatever. also why he’s doing so much to reform the cost of education to make it possible for just about anyone to DO THIS.
Not-fun, why are you a communist that hates liberty and wants make the people’s lives miserable?
I know your ultimate career goal is to be a writer, but if you have to do the "day job" thing, what kind of job would you like to try? What would you like to work at all day?
I’d like to imagine that I could do almost any job that wasn’t revolting or especially outrageous.
As far as things go, I want very little out of life. If after all my utilities, housing and basic food expenses, if I had 10 to 15 bucks a week to set aside or save for whatever I want, I’d consider myself able to do basically whatever I wanted. I’m a patient guy.
I wouldn’t mind stuffing easter baskets or delivering mail or anything.
As far as a long term career, I might end up somewhere in the shpere of video production. Media studies is my minor at college actually. I enjoy that stuff a lot.
same artist, same character. once a week for eleven years.
See this? -> .
Thats a little tiny internet medal for actually admitting it takes work to be awesome at something rather than just trying to cover up your tracks and act like WAT ME IM JUST AWESOME AT STUFF and misleading people into thinking people are just BORN with something.
I mean, you can be BORN with an aptitude for something but its not going to grow into anything without a lot of hard work.
Democratic Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner is the third female lawmaker to introduce a bill that would limit men’s access to Viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs to make a statement about the dozens of anti-abortion bills that have passed statehouses around the country over the last year.
Turner is opposed to a proposed bill that would prohibit abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can happen as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. The Dayton Daily News reports that Turner’s bill would mandate that men seeking Viagra be “tested for heart problems, receive counseling about possible side effects and receive information about ‘pursuing celibacy as a viable lifestyle choice.’”
Rep. Lynn Wachtmann, the heartbeat bill’s sponsor, told the Dayton Daily News that the comparison between Viagra and abortions isn’t valid.
Turner is one of several female Democratic state lawmakers who are wielding the power of sarcasm to protest a wave of anti-abortion legislation.
In January, Virginia state Sen. Janet Howell introduced an amendment to the state’s controversial ultrasound bill, which required women seeking abortions to first undergo a vaginal ultrasound. The amendment, which failed, said that all men seeking Viagra would have to first get a rectal exam. The ultrasound bill passed after Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell successfully requested that the vaginal ultrasound requirement be removed. Women seeking abortions will still have to receive an external ultrasound under the new bill.
Earlier this month, Illinois state Rep. Kelly Cassidy introduced an amendment to another bill that would require women to get ultrasounds before being allowed to get abortions. The amendment mandated that men seeking Viagra watch a graphic video about the drug’s potential side effects. “If they are serious about us not being able to make our own health care decisions, then I’m just as serious about them not being able to make theirs,” she said.
Having a computer attempt to teach you grammar is like having a computer attempt to teach you how to use your stomach and intestines to digest food.
Its teaching you something that you already do naturally and instinctively without needing to be taught about it, while the computer doing the teaching knows nothing about what eating is like, and so is barking at me for doing things “incorrectly” when I’m not and just making me more confused.
