Being Alone, Children, and Police: Andy Ternay added 2 new photos. 11 Feb at 19:57 Adventuresome morning today! Mary Ann and I went to First Watch in Richardson for a quick breakfast but it was not to be First, we were approached by a manager who let us know that customers were very distressed by my shirt and that children might see it. T expressed deep sympathies and let her know that explaining "grab 'em by the pussy" and golden showers to my daughter was equally unpleasant. A Latino woman checking me out tells me she loves my shirt and thanked her. Again as we were being seated she expressed that a particular group of customers was suffering due to my indescribable poor taste. replied that I did not see the problem As we are seated two African-American workers individually tell me how cool the shirt is. One of them states that the people did not tell their server - a person of color - their complaint. They requested the manager, a white person, to complain to. I personally did not witness this but that is what I was told Our drinks are served and our order is taken Then one of the cooks comes to the table and very apologetically explains the owners have been called and we are being asked to leave We ask to tip our server for occupying her table, get drinks to go and leave. One table of white people applauds. We are stopped in the parking lot by one of the African American servers who had stopped to comment on the shirt. If I understand correctly, he was quitting the job on the spot over us being asked to leave. He told us: "you should hear these people asking not to be seated near Muslims." So we get in the car and start to leave as the Richardson police pull up outside.I stop the car and ask the officer if she is there over a t-shirt. She affirms this to be true and asks my name which I respectfully decline to give; she starts in on the shirt - whereupon l cite Cohen v. California, 1971, in which the Supreme Court upheld the right to wear a T- shirt saying: FUCK THE DRAFT. She's like: just leave, okay? MAJOR TAKEAWAYS: 1. If your kids can't handle the word "Fuck" they are going to have a really tough time in this world 2. Compared to racism, bigotry, misogyny and collusion with a foreign power, "Fuck" gleams with cleanliness and purity. Treating Muslims and people of color, LGBTQ and women as "less than" is the real filth and harm to our country 3. Everywhere I go with this shirt, white males sneer and people of color smile and give me thumbs up. I think it is very worthwhile to let people of color know they are not alone - that some whites also see the evil of racism is resurgent - and we will fight with our brothers and sisters of color against it 4. Regarding the restaurant - I'm fine with being asked to leave and I don't urge a boycott. These things are never easy for businesses, and the workers were polite and professional Besides, we hope to be back soon 5. Challenge authoritarianism anywhere and everywhere.. otherwise, it wins. you THE RACIST LT-RIGAT FUCK RUMe ND FUCK YUU FOR VOTING FOR HIM

Bored, Children, and Drunk: thecheshiresmiles everytime I hear about children of the corn I think about the guy I met at comic con who actually lived in the town they filmed that movie at, and on the farm where they filmed in the corn. he was a teenager at the time and him and his friends would get drunk on moonshine and rustle the corn and let the air out of the tires of the production team's trailers and shit. and now there's Wikipedia pages about how the children of the corn set was haunted and they thought they angered god but it was really just drunk hillbillies trashcandean I don't like adding to posts but I also have a funny story like this, so lI was watching the movie the Blair witch which takes place in burkettsville maryland which to me is so funny because that is were my grandfather lives and the town is literally just old people and cows with their main street consisting of a post office. Well anyway he told me that after it came out people were coming in like bus loads to the town to find the witch and my grandfather lives up in the Mountain area and people were up in his property trying to find the witch and it made him angry so he went out and hung up stick people and stacked rocks and it freaked the people out so they started thinking something was out there when really it was my 80 year old Italian grandpa who wanted people out of his woods ginathethundergoddess We had ghost hunters come to a historic house in my town to film and if you think every high school kid in town respectfully stayed at home that night instead of going to fuck up that filming you're dead wrong animentality this is comforting, actually, sometimes paranormal things are just a bunch of bored people dicking around in the woods thepoorgroomsbrideisatrot New favorite cryptid: locals Source:thecheshir esmiles The Hillbilly Horror Picture Show

Butt, Chill, and Comfortable: Calvin Rickson, an engineer from Texas A&M University has designed a bra that keeps women's breasts from jiggling, bouncing up and down, and stops nipples from pushing through the fabric when cold weather sets in. After a news conference announcing the invention, a large group of men took Mr. Rickson outside and kicked the shit out of him. Michelle de Mooij I cannot believe how disgusting some of the comments on this post are. Boobs are not men's toys to look at and play with. The bra would be made for a reason. For women to wear and feel comfortable in, not for men to throw a fit about because it doesn't please them. Ugh. Like 33 More Yesterday at 01:58 Ahen l will have to respectfully disagree ma am! Like 4.Yesterday at 14:53 HOTHING Taeja I agree to Disagree ) Like Yesterday at 16:33 Joh boobs are definitely men's toys Like Yesterday at 17:37 Michelle de Mooij No they aren't. Boobs are made for babies. Not for men to objectify. It isn't rocket science. Like More Yesterday at 17:47 Hannah A OMG Michelle chill out.... Yes boobs are ment for babies, but while your baby is not using them let the men enjoy!!! My god stop being a prude!!! That's like telling you that you're not allowed to look at a man's, butt, chest, or back!!! Get over it, we should be proud of what we have not ashamed!!!As long as it's covered up who cares who looks!!! Like 10 hours ago Michelle de Mooij I never said we should be ashamed of what we have. I'm not being a prude at all. I'm simply saying men are making a huge deal about this. This is made for women to feel comfortable in, as not a lot of women appreciate men staring at their chests, covered up or not. Especially women with larger chests are bothered by the bouncing and jiggling, and nipples poking through the fabric when it's cold is just annoying. Like I said, men are just upset because they can't carry on objectifying women. Nothing about that is prude. Randall A fucking lesbians man Like 3.5 hours ago Michelle de Mooij I'm sorry Randall, but I fail to see how my words about men being objectifying and misogynistic has anything to do with lesbians. If anything, you just proved my point by labelling me as a lesbian simply for using my brain. Like More 3 minutes ago

Bowser, Friday, and Golden State Warriors: D.C. Mayor Welcomes Golden State Warriors "If Anyone Ever Tells You That You Cannot Come to D.C., Tell Them Mayor Bowser Invited You" @balleralert D.C. Mayor Welcomes Golden State Warriors “If Anyone Ever Tells You That You Cannot Come to D.C., Tell Them Mayor Bowser Invited You” - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Friday, StephCurry shared his opinion about the Golden State Warriors’ championship visit to the White House. Although he didn’t want to go for his own personal beliefs, the final decision would be left up to the team and organization. However, before the team was able to decide for themselves, Trump took offense to Curry’s statement and withdrew the invitation, prompting a Twitter storm of backlash. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In turn, the Warriors released a statement, saying they would use their trip to D.C. to embrace their team values of equality and inclusion. Shortly after the team’s announcement, another elected official in D.C. welcomed the team to the nation’s capital. D.C. Mayor MurielBowser shared a statement on social media welcoming the team to practice their First Amendment rights and-or lose to their beloved Washington Wizards during Warriors’ visit in February. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We are Washington, D.C. We are proud to be our nation’s capital,” Bowser said. “We welcome over 20 million visitors a year. Whether you’re here to work, play, practice your First Amendment rights, or lose to our Wizards, we welcome all to visit our museums, our monuments, our restaurants, and our thriving neighborhoods if they do so peacefully and respectfully. While you’re here, Warriors, we are happy to identify ways for you to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion – what we call DC values. And if anyone ever tells you that you cannot come to DC, tell them Muriel Bowser invited you.”

9/11, Anaconda, and Apple: Chick-Fil-A Set to Open Five Story Location in New York City @balleralert Chick-Fil-A Set to Open Five Story Location in New York City-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In NYC, it's either go big or go home. So in true New York fashion, ChickfilA has announced that they will be opening their biggest restaurant right in the Big Apple. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The fast food chain revealed Monday, that their third N.Y.C. location, will be the largest location of their 2,100 restaurants across the country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The restaurant will be located right in the middle of the city’s Financial District. With 12,000 sq.-ft., the restaurant will consist of five levels, with floor-to-ceiling windows and rooftop seating for customers to take in the view of Manhattan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to design manager Nathaniel Cates, while the location will be the franchise's tallest location, it will be quite narrow at only 15-ft. wide, but will pay homage to the events of 9-11 in a major way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “With the restaurant sitting under half a mile from Ground Zero and the 9-11 Memorial, Cates’ team wanted to respectfully pay homage to the significance of the location,” reads the press release. “They drew designs for the front of the building to be stacked fully with glass windows, with elements built into the façade that give a subtle impression of the Twin Towers – one on each side of the restaurant. It’s a feature that acknowledges the significance of location.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The doors of the new location are slated to open early next year.
