Dude, Fafsa, and Lawyer: Can you marry me 5:01 PM I just got back from my school and they said they cannot give me any aid except for unsubsidised loans unless l have a child, get married, or turn 24, so I have to get married Yeah ok I'll marry you I need a better fafsa application too Wait seriously Would you really do it Im doing actual research on it Are we doing this It would have to happen like lightning fast cause my next semester happens pretty damn soon I don't know how fast this happens lemme check Ughhhh okay so we'd need to get a marriage license which can be up to $30 depending on where we get it, and THEN we need to file for a marriage certificate I'm an ordained minister but idk if I could file my own marriage certificate get ordained and do it Can we go to Indiana? Let me check Dude Im so excited Its possible that I can get FAFSA to pay for an entire apartment for me to go to school in Milwaukee DUDE WHAT Okay so there's no minister registration required in lllinois so Yeah I'm looking that up right now Ive heard that if one partner commits adultery, thats grounds for a quicker divorce Yeah this sample form I'm looking at says "irretrievable breakdown" of marriage Worse comes to worse we can stage a fight but I think we can just say yeah it's not working out Does it include adultery divorce ranging from $15,000 to $30,000. Most of this money is spent on legal fees. So Fuck lawyers We don't need a lawyer We don't have kids we don't have property to divide up Oh thats only for a lawyer We don't have alimony to negotiate We're just two guys being dudes. Gettin a divorce portraitofemmy: possiblestoner: marzipanandminutiae: A. imagine your otp B. dear gods this country has massive issues I’ve been looking for this post for ages listen, I’ve read enough fanfic to know that they’re not getting divorced, but it’ll take about 35k of pining to figure that out.

Beautiful, Dude, and Memes: spacehumans-inspace Humans are ADAPTABLE. As FUCK. Just because something happens to a limb, or part of the body, or a sense, it doesn't actually mean anything. Loose a limb? Put a new one on. Broken bone split open the skin? Pop it back into place and stitch it up. Paralyzed/ physically incapacitated? Wheelchair. Heart problems? Here's a new one. Or, even better, a ROBOT one. Blind? Well, who's to say we don't just outright develop echolocation? Humans are are amazing at adapting to situations that would totally ruin or kill any amount of other species Our adaptability and ingenuity in the application of tools and aides set us apart from other alien species, because who else, apart from stubborn, mad geniuses, would think 'right, something's broken beyond all repair? Or even gone completely? We can sort that out. "Right. So, you're telling me, that you lost BOTH of your legs in war, and instead of dying because you've lost half your body, you just... stuck new ones on?" "Basically, yeah. They're bio-mechanical and detachable. Wanna see?" "Wait, you're paralyzed from the waist down? But surely that's enough of an excuse to... stop working? Rest? You're stuck in that wheeled contraption! Isn't that horrendously awkward and tiring?" "Stuck? Dude, if I didn't have a wheelchair, THEN I'd be stuck. It can be awkward, sure, when places don't have ramps and wide enough doors and stuff, but apart from that, the chair lets me... be free again. It allows me to move and be a contributing human being again. Just, yknow. I've got wheels instead of legs." "You're blind? Wait, if you can't see, then why are you on this ship? Our visually impaired never pass even the first level of clearance Well, I'm hardly a navigator, am I? I'm a translator, I don't need to see. I can speak five earth languages and seven alien languages, and I can get around perfectlyI fine, thank you very much. Besides, that's why l've got my cane "But... you can't see? How can you read?" "Braille, mate. Besides, nobody writes anymore. It's all audio or that brain transmission telepathy shit anyway. "Your crewmate appears to act differently to most other humans I've encountered?" "Oh, Alec? He's lovely. He's got this thing called Aspergers, and whilst there's nothing technically wrong with him, it just means he... he processes things differently to someone without it. He doesn't understand jokes or sarcasm or anything, but he's really kind, and has an amazing green thumb. He tends to the onboard gardens." Right, so I've tried to make a little bit of disability positivity in this little drabble here. If anything I've written here upsets anyone, or appears as incorrect, I apologize sincerely! 2,474 notas positive-memes 99+ Humans are beautiful

Drone, Obama, and True: STRENGTH MPERIALISM beyonslayed: c-bassmeow: beyonslayed: This post is wack cause Obama was full strength imperialism if anything Trump’s (unintentionally) impeding the US from exercising its might i agree except with the last part cus Trump is expanding war in a few more countries as well as increasing drone strikes by hundreds of percentage points so what am i missing?   wanting to tank NATO, alienating European allies, tearing up the Iran deal, picking a (more overt) fight with China , leaving the UN human rights council, etc That may be true but there is again many counterfactuals to this narrative that trump is impeding the US’s ability to exercise its might. He wants to invade Venezuela and had to be talked out of it even tried to convince the Colombian President and even mentioned it in meetings despite his aides pleading him not to , he has warhawks as advisors who will, mark my words enter us in more wars or proxy wars, The Syria bombing and military efforts, he may be alientatint NATO but he also had their troops stationed around Russia’s borders despite liberals claiming he’s soft on Russia, and again he has increased military actions in more countries and increased drone strikes so tearing up deals doesn’t mean much when we are still the military bully of the world killing more innocent brown civilians then before. I hate Obama but still . what you said is partly true by establishment PR friendly standards and yes he’s scaling back on some things (some which are good like environmental agreements). he’s throwing over the chess game that establishment types set up but he’s actually much worse in other areas. I don’t think he’s damaging US imperialism but just taking it in a different direction. His regime will support right wing governments around the world and he will as all presidents do arm terrorists and paramilitary groups.

Please spread! I was worried that this post would be a protest against these employers, and am pleasantly surprised that this is being promoted as a positive. Many, many people are either wrongfully convicted, or grossly overcharged due to mandatory minimums in drug possession, minor crimes, and three-strike rules. Disproportionately, these sentences fall on people of color, especially poor people, and particularly black people.  Prison is dehumanizing and deprives people of far more than their liberty. Individuals with a felony conviction, even once released, have trouble finding housing, jobs, income sources, etc., and society provides barely any aid or recourse. Bless these employers for going against the tide and helping change a brutally unjust system.  All of the people subjected to the brutality of the American criminal justice system deserve the chance to rebuild their lives.

Apparently, Dude, and Future: Kook Aid systlin: triforceofdoom: mittensmcgee: samthor: transgirljupiter: armeleia: pomegranateandivy: screamingnorth: gunmetalskies: Here’s a “life-hack” for you.Apparently concentrated Kool-Aid can be used as a pretty effective leather dye.I was making a drink while cutting the snaps off some new straps for my pauldrons and I got curious, so I tried it, thinking, “ok even if this works, it will just wash out.”Nope.It took the “dye” (undiluted) in about 3 seconds. After drying for about an hour and a half, it would not wash off in the hottest tap-water. It would not wash out after soaking for 30 minutes.It did not wash out until I BOILED it, and even then, only by a tiny bit and it gave it a weathered look that was kind of cool.Add some waterproofing and I’d wager it would survive even that.That rich red is only one application too.Plus it smells great, lol.So there you go, cheap, fruity smelling leather dye in all the colors Kool-Aid has to offer. WELL THEN! this may be important to some of my followers *and certainly not just getting reblogged because of my costuming and my boyfriends desire for leather armor* When I was in middle school we used to use it to dye our hair.  Potent stuff. If you’re dying anything with kool-aid it’s best to use SUGAR-FREE ones otherwise the thing you’re dying might get all sticky the flavor only packets where you are supposed add sugar are the best. they will dye any natural fiber: leather, wool, cotton, hair,  flax, jute, silk and so forth. heat the dye water so it is more potent. let dry then rinse excess out in cold water. there’s  a whole system to this.  Oh my god This will prove very useful for any future cosplays I wanna do.

As if we don’t have the very recent, devastating shipwrecks of the Costa Concordia (2012) in which video from firefighters helped prove the captain abandoned his ship in a disaster that resulted in 32 fatalities or the sinking of the Sewol ferry in Korea (2014), in which over 300 people, mostly middle school students, were drowned, but not before many sent footage of the ferry’s announcements telling people to stay seated and not evacuate, proving the negligence of the ferry’s crew. Many of them were able to get final goodbye messages to their friends and family before they drowned.  Ability to send final messages aside, documentary archival video footage is PRICELESS in situations like this. After any kind of public event, you bet your ass police are asking for any and all cell phone footage from the area.  anyway, in conclusion, that artist can fuck off  technowogy is scawwy Yes, at least a handful of people probably would be recording it on their phones because then they could alert authorities to send aid and let loved ones know where they are and what’s going on. I can’t stand the anti-technology stigma that really just boils down to a bunch of bitter old people being scared and confused by something they’re unfamiliar with and want to make themselves feel better about by painting it in a negative light.
