Break out the shock conference call!

You do that, I'll go melt some butter...

The laundry files series by Charles stross are paranormal with some humor chucked in. I can have trouble keeping characters straight myself, but have found these to be a comfortable read. :)

The thing that gets me most about this is that covering a baby up too much and getting no sun is literally bad for them. Obviously don't let them get a sun burn, but no sun and you get a baby with rickets.

Yeah, they're really vague with the details but "help jump-start growth" does sound like it has something to do with search results...

They're diving head first into hardcore monetization this year. All the charges for additional coupons and now this ridiculous tool suite package.

see more

The charges for coupons annoyed me. I don't really understand why I should be paying to take a hit on my profit margin. I get it's a form of advertising but Etsy benefits from taking a cut of those sales and loses nothing whereas I will be absorbing the losses. I'm going to let my listings expire then close shop. With the amount of work I now have to do to get traffic to my shop i might as well just build my own website.

The "safety inspection" is only a VIN check when you first register the car or a semi annual emissions test in the crossroads of America.

Wow that is way more lenient than where I live! I have been failed for having a headrest missing in the back seat before!

Yeah my state (Indiana) does pretty much nothing. Universal tire tread checks every year in this country would save a lot of lives.

see more

Tire checks have been a thing everywhere I have lived. We get a goodly amount of snow and ice so I can't imagine what a mess it would be if we didn't check tires. Bad enough trying to avoid getting hit by idiots who don't understand how to drive in snow already without adding bald tires into the mix.

Hate when people say suicide is selfish. If you've been in that much pain for so long and you've legitimately tried EVERYTHING and you still want to die then I think it's selfish of people to expect you to stick around just for their sake.

see more

Every time I hear someone say how selfish it is I want to smack them in the face so badly. People who say that in my experience are usually people who have zero experience with mental illness and usually are saying it to feel superior. People like that are generally useless to anyone who needs help and can fuck right off as far as I'm concerned! /rant

Sorry bit off topic, but what deck is this? It's beautiful!

The art is lovely. I will have to look for it, I haven't seen this deck before. Thanks!

Could you imagine? You're sitting with your family for Saturday morning breakfast. You're at the head of your table. To your left, your spelling bee champion, oboe playing son Daniel. He has some confidence issues but when he plays the oboe, he slips into another world. Then you look to your right. There's your adopted Asian daughter Mindy. The wife was a little skeptical about giving birth a second time so you agreed upon adoption and wow was it a good decision. Mindy is the class president and is reforming the way kids play kickball to where everyone gets a turn to kick within 15 minutes of their previous attempt.

Then comes your wife, Susan. You met her in high school and she was a bit nerdy but overall cool. You kept in touch a little but she went off to college for culinary arts for 3 years and you lost contact. She comes back to your home town with a little bit of a weight gain but you like it. You take her out to the milkshake hut down the road and hit it off. Now she's the mother of your 2 children.

She comes over to the table and drops the meat-whipper v2 on the table and suddenly, without notice, THE BACON INSIDE IS FLYING OUT. OH GOD! SUSAN DIDN'T WIPE ENOUGH GREASE OFF AND IT MALFUNCTIONED THE SYSTEM! MINDY JUST GOT HIT WITH A BACON STRIP. THE GREASE! OH GOD THE GREASE! IT'S GOTTEN IN HER EYES! YOUR FAMILY IS BEING BURNED ALIVE BY BACON RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU! YOU REACH FOR THE MACHINE BUT IT TURNS TO YOU, YOU HEAR A MANIACAL LAUGH COME FROM THE MACHINE. IT SAYS "I WISH YOU WERE VEGON SO NOW YOU WILL BE GONE!" AND IN RAPID SUCCESSION, FIRES 12 STRIPS OF BACON RIGHT TO THE BACK OF YOUR THROAT. AS YOU'RE PASSING OUT ON THE FLOOR, YOU SEE YOUR YOUNG MINDY CRYING, YOUR WIFE THE SAME, BUT DANIEL. DANIEL IS JUST SITTING THERE SMILING. WATCHING THIS UNFOLD, HE THEN LOOKS AT YOU AND SAYS "Sure wish I had gotten that new oboe for Christmas. Don't you?"

I was going to tell a story about a malfunctioning slicer at a deli I used to work at, but I can't top this gripping tale of bacon fueled terror. My hat goes off to you!

Wait, he is alienating America from the other nations, strengthening their bonds against America and finally favouring Russia to take America's place?

I request a tl;dr of the trumpets justification how this could possibly be a good strategy?

We own two gingers, a male and a female. I can confirm this. They’re assholes of the highest degree.

see more

I have had one ginger who was the sweetest most snuggly exception to the rule, but in general I agree. My aunt's ginger cat frequently gored me as a child.

That was actually the final episode ("Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen") and it haunted a lot of people.

That was some seriously disturbing shit.

see more

I didn't realize that was the final episode. I saw them kind of out of order. What a dark way to end the show, it sure as hell stuck with me!

It does get better. The final episode was two hours long and that incident happens about halfway through. Hawkeye more or less recovers his sanity in the last half of the episode. The chicken incident was his big emotional breakthrough that allowed him to start to heal (as he was no longer in denial about what had actually happened).

I heard they had cut the finale into normal episode lengths to replay in syndication, but I have never seen it done that way. That might be what you saw, and if so, it's pretty messed up to leave viewers hanging like that without the resolution you get in the rest of the episode (i.e. Hawkeye recovers and goes back to the 4077th in time for everyone saying goodbye after the war ends).

see more

Yeah I'm pretty sure I saw the short version, I will have to look for the full length one. They definitely glossed over a lot of his recovery in the short version so it would be nice to see what got left out.

My sister is legit afraid of sending her kids to school now cause of these shootings. How can the US call anywhere else Second or third world is beyond me at this point.

It's awful. Every day I put my kid on the bus and part of me wonders what I could be sending him off to. Trying to explain lock downs to a six year old without scaring him half to death isn't easy and shouldn't be a thing, yet here we are.

There was a pawn shop in Keene, NH that used to play CC 24/7 in the storefront window. That shit was gold when you were coming home from a college party drunk or whatever.

My Instagram is most up to date. I'm kind of crap at consistently keeping my social media updated, but I'm working on doing better so there is recent work at least :) If you have an online album or anything I would love to check it out too.

Thank you! I have followed you as well. You have some very nice work!

I hate Archie. He’s actually the worst character in the whole show. Everything he says and does makes me cringe, especially the “making his bones” stuff.

Also I miss Joaquin. He was cute af.

see more

I don't hate Archie, but I started getting a bit frustrated with the fact that he is basically the idiot plot personified at this point. I know kids can do some dumb things, but holy shit Archie why???

2 points · 13 days ago

Well if we're stating unpopular opinions, I kind of feel that gets exaggerated. Yeah the guy's made his fair share of bone headed choices, but he's hardly the only one and a lot of them do at least have some point behind them.

This is pretty fair, they all make bad decisions pretty regularly. I'm rewatching season two and am right in the middle of his doing whatever Mr Lodge asks him thing so it may just be fresh in my mind.

It's fantastic! Good luck at the art show!

There is a group art show coming up in the area with the theme "90's" so I thought what better subject than a character from one of my favorite movies! Wanted to share since I am pretty proud of how it came out :)

I tried thinking something that embodies the spirit of America more than this. I couldn't. Maybe add a tip jar next to it?

I would seriously award bones points because this is based on a pinterest idea that has been floating around for years. I see it pop up whenever I search retail or craft show display ideas. This is grade A American mommy blogger virtue signaling at its finest. Somewhere off camera there has got to be a "live, laugh, love" sign.

5 points · 14 days ago

Unfortunately those live, laugh, love signs are universal.

I still silently judge people for having them, but you are correct they are everywhere. They are like the herpes of home décor.

It has good color selection and is proportional with the head, body and arms. I like the background pattern The hair looks a bit like it’s a separate from his head. A good job overall 🙂

Thanks, the hair is a bit overworked imho but overall I'm pretty happy with it.

Sorry about the glare on the wet paint, but I thought you all might appreciate this :)

Eh. I think you just misunderstand the message. Don’t spend years with someone and tell them you love them if you don’t intend on staying. That always causes serious pain for someone.

I can see it being interpreted this way, which would make sense.

In my defense the person who posted this was for sure not posting it in that sense, but that context is totally lost if you don't know her I must admit.

No need to defend yourself I see exactly what your saying too!

Original Poster1 point · 15 days ago

Good natured defense :) This one can be interpreted differently depending on the context it is posted in for sure.

Question is, why do they refuse him access. I get that they're legally allowed to, but if everything going on inside is up to par, you'd think they would let him in (even if it was without the media).

The fact that it's closed, windows blacked out, nobody is allowed entry and there are UNACCOMPANIED MINORS in there is what worries me.

see more

I don't have strong enough words for how troubling this is. My stomach twists into knots thinking about how terrified this kids must be to begin with, and knowing what we know about how kids in the system are often treated I can not imagine what these children who are even more vulnerable are likely going through. I am so ashamed of the country I was born in. Everything about this is just wrong.
