Ooh, I was hoping for that lipstick. I love a bold red. I got that awful Barbie pink lipstick instead. :(

For the record the guy with running shoes is an idiot. Many kitchens require and most recommend step safe or some variant slip resistant shoes. The bottoms have a hexagon pattern that sticks to kitchen floors like glue. They massively reduce accidents in an environment that's coated in oil. You can buy them like normal shoes and put an insert in them. Which is what like half the line cooks do in this country. So not only is this guy angry and stubborn but he is for literally no reason. There are better solutions to his problem that dont involve massively increasing your safety risk. It's hard to say those jackasses dont deserve each other.

Yeah, maybe it comes from working in an industrial setting for a few years, but I don’t fuck around with safety equipment. Non-slip shoes are easy to find, and there’s a ton of options. Somewhat fewer if you also need safety toes, but I’d guess a kitchen worker probably doesn’t.

Those comments and that subreddit in general are perfect examples of how lots of Christians pick and choose which parts of scripture to follow and how Christians often twist scripture into their own sick interpretations.

That little twist of “AIDS is punishment for the gays,” is always just delightful. If you think that, the logical conclusion is that God loves lesbians. Women who have sex with women have the lowest rates of infection.

I've had people who routinely shat on Obama for being an awkward ex temp speaker lavish praise on Trump's nonsense. It boggles the mind.

Trump’s making W look silver-tongued in comparison.

My ex girlfriend and I got into a pretty heated argument about where the bed sheets should be stored. Personally I just thought that her putting them down with the canned foods in the kitchen didn't seem to make as much sense as putting them with the curtains and towels in the bathroom. But apparently that makes me an idiot.

My sister has taken several of my baby photos and photos of kid me and put them up on Facebook insisting it's her. Like sweet, tender moments in my childhood -- which were few and far between -- and she just takes them right off my Facebook and puts them on her own. It's even more frustrating because my family always forgets about me and calls me by her name (even when she's standing right next to me!!) and it feels like my identity is just being scrubbed away.

When I argued with her that the photos were me, we asked our parents, then grandparents. I finally found the originals and on the back, in our grandmother's curly handwriting, was my sister's name -- crossed out and corrected with mine.

Fuck yeah, validation!

Up until about age 2, my brother and I were basically identical. Mom did gender neutral baby clothes, and neither of us had much hair. If it’s not close up enough to see whether the baby in the photo has green eyes or blue, we have to try to date the furniture in the background or other people’s clothes to figure out which one of us it is. Only our mother can tell at a glance.

We have argued over who is in a photo more than once.

As someone who remembers watching that on TV at a very young age, all I can say is fuck these people.

And that’s what sucks about this, b cause if it’s introduced to those morons, you are just asking for an epidemic.

I’m young enough that I never got a polio vaccine, because it was eradicated by the time I was born. So you give these assholes polio, others like me may get it too.

Of course, I’d get a polio vaccination if it was offered.

They’re still giving polio vaccine. I think it’s smallpox that got knocked off the schedule.

Some people think the effects of aids are only effects of hiv treatment, and that hiv is just a gene in our immune system some people have, not a virus at all.

I want to believe those people are too young to remember the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s, and how there was no treatment, and it was a death sentence, but probably they just weren’t paying attention because most of the people dying were gay.

Electronic ignition on gas water heater not lighting.

I had a brief interruption of gas service, (old neighborhood, it happens every couple of years.) and can’t get my water heater to relight. It’s less than 2 years old, and has an electronic ignition box. I’ve turned the dial to “pilot,” depressed it, and clicked the button as directed in the manual. Including my dad’s highly technical advice of “click the shit out of it for about 45 seconds.” No luck.

Now I’m missing the previous dinosaur that only needed a match. Too bad it bit the dust.

Anyone know a way to diagnose whether this is a hardware store problem or a call a professional problem? And would I call a plumber, or some other specialization? Thanks in advance for any insight.

An interruption of gas service could introduce air into the pipes which will make it take longer than usual to re-light.

edit: especially because the pilot light tube is so small it doesn't let much gas through.

That does make sense. So, would I just keep trying it every few hours and see if it catches later?

Do you have a gas stove? If so you could open a burner for a few minutes and that might speed up the process. Otherwise you just kind of have to sit there holding down the pilot light button.

Sadly, no, just the water heater, the furnace, and a little built in space heater in each bathroom. I’m a little paranoid about filling up the basement with gas. I suppose I’d smell it if it got to be too much...

I was not expecting to see a Hedwig reference today, and I’m delighted by it.

And while those laws are sometimes struck down in lower courts, they know they have an ace in the hole: the Supreme Court. We must never forget that the court that keeps delivering these 5-to-4 decisions in favor of Republican efforts to rig the electoral system was itself rigged in favor of Republicans. When Justice Antonin Scalia died in February 2016, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) — with the support of every single Republican in the Senate — simply declared that he would not permit President Barack Obama’s appointed replacement to even get a hearing, let alone a vote, for no real reason other than that Obama was a Democrat. It was unprecedented and indefensible, and it’s the reason the court is now divided 5 to 4 in favor of conservatives instead of 5 to 4 in favor of liberals.

Lets not forget... Merrick Garland was seen by Obama as something of a centrist. He tried to pick someone palatable to Republicans and those ratfucks still spit in his face.

If GW Bush had nominated Garland, they’d have barely blinked before he was approved. Congresscritters just didn’t want Obama to appoint anybody.

To be fair I'm nearing 40 and I haven't ever heard "cotton pickin'" uttered in a public space my entire life. Hardly common.

It’s very dated. My grandmother used to use it. Never in a way that really read racist to me, more like “Darn it all, the cotton-pickin dishwasher broke.” Sometimes she used “pea-pickin” instead.

It’s unquestionably shitty and intentionally chosen as a dog whistle in the context of this incident, though.

Yes! imagine how much more trauma your nephew would have experienced if you had not showed up then, or if you hadn't showed up at all. Years of torment and feeling as though he had imagined things, just as you had felt when you were abused. You saved him.

Just knowing that an adult knows about it, knows it’s not okay, and told him it’s not his fault is going to help him.

It sure scared the crap out of the company I reported them to a few years ago. Got my refund three days after the bbb began an investigation and found others have been shafted too.

Ended up being part of a small group of people (2 dozen or so) and we collectively sued the company and won.

If it’s a really small company, sometimes they give a crap. Big ones tend not to.

The big problem they’ve found with oxybenzone is that it can harm coral. So if a lot of people slathered with it get into the same area of the ocean, that’s a problem for the environment.

The craziest part is the “so just don’t wear sunscreen!” part. If you’re concerned about oxybenzone, there’s always zinc oxide. You’ll look a little chalky, but it still beats melanoma.
