Cars, Fucking, and Run: SheStayFabulous @Shestayfabulous Man old cars really were made to last 1/5 Ayton SZN @ReeceDontTweet ) his car ain't break a sweat becausedragonage: freshest-tittymilk: princealigorna: And this is why we used to make cars out of STEEL instead of FIBERGLASS! Sure, fiberglass is a lot lighter in weight and hence a hell of a lot better for gas mileage. But you hit anything at more than 20 mph and the entire body explodes off the fucking thing, and now you’re spending more to repair the car than it’s worth because you need a entire front end, read end, or side panel. They can’t just take the damaged section off, beat it out with a hammer, sand it, and repaint it. Everything is made with the idea of it being easier to replace than to maintain, aka planned obsolescence. Thanks, capitalism You guys are obscenely, dangerously wrong.  It’s not planned obsolescence, it’s physics. Modern cars crumple to absorb and distribute the forces of impact in an accident in an effort to protect the occupants. When cars didn’t have those crumple zones, the occupants, being the soft, squishy things they were, took those forces and were mangled or killed in horrible ways. Also, those older cars took hidden damage that often went unnoticed and made them very dangerous to drive.  I recently watched a TV show where a small sedan was run over by the trailer of an eighteen-wheeler. Run. Over. They had to unwrap the crumpled ball of a car from the undercarriage of that trailer. Guess what? The driver suffered only minor injuries because the car collapsed in exactly the way it was designed to so that she, in the very strong frame surrounding the passenger compartment, was protected.  And no, don’t thank capitalism for these modern cars. Thank Ralph Nader and countless other safety activists who worked tirelessly to make car manufacturers accountable for the safety of the people who drove their cars.

Dude, Life, and Love: Joshua Raclaw @joshraclaw Watching Thor: Ragnorok and never get tired of hearing Bruce Banner brag about his 7 PhDs like it's a sign of brilliance and not just poor career planning, dude. Like, maybe do the one PhD and then some postdocs, guy Joshua Raclaw @joshraclaw And can you imagine being on his committee SEVEN TIMES? I mean, sure, seven different advisors, but he must have dragged at least one poor faculty member across all those committees he had to put together. Joshua Raclaw @joshraclaw And I really feel for his seventh advisor. Like you have to know this dude doesn't even love your discipline that much. He picked it last! He's obviously just going for the seventh because it has a far nicer ring that "that Banner guy with the 6 PhDs" Joshua Raclaw @joshraclaw Addendum: tney do tnis with Charies Xavier, too. Check out his Wikipedia page under the POWERS & ABILITIES SECTION Charles is a genius with multiple doctorates. He is a world-renowned geneticist, a leading expert in mutation, possesses considerable knowledge of various life sciences, and is the inventor of CerebroHe possesses Ph.D.s in Genetics, Biophvsics, Psychologv, and Anthropology, and an M.D. in Psychiatry. He is highly talented in Joshua Raclaw @joshraclaw That last part where the screenshot is cut off reads "he is highly talented in writing application letters." rustandruin: Has anyone written something about the Marvel Universe’s multiple PhD holders discussing their academic experiences?

Ali, Christmas, and Doctor: Aliyu Ndajiwo I @Ali Ndaj Picture of the day! A pregnant doctor with her child on her back is performing a cesarean section to save a mother and a kid in Kenya. smokeymcbandit: quasi-fluent: lagonegirl: WOW! This I don’t know her name but this is truly amazing!  #blackwomen #BlackGirlMagic  Her name is Swabra Swaleh Breik, and there is more to the story.  She saved the mother and the baby. Her son was sick Her partner wasn’t available, working in a hospital a long way away Her co-workers were all also working, over-worked. If she didn’t perform the surgery the mother and/or the baby would have died. She was fired for unreleated reason The hospital would not okay her study leave to advance her skills because they said she might not come back From what I can gather, they try everything they can to ensure doctors are unskilled enough to keep their pay down, and if they reach enough time on staff that they would need to be paid more they are let go in favor of fresh lesser experienced doctors Swabra spoke out over the feeling of wanting to give up And despite pushing hard to help people and still get paid a fair wage and obviously saving lives even in tough situations… people have decided to criticize her. “That’s dangerous to the baby” “That’s dangerous to the patient” “That’s unprofessional” She saved lives you assholes And she did it while being worn down by a corrupt system that actually bought 2 million dollar Christmas trees. No lies. County govt said it had no money to upgrade doctors’ pay but have huge sums for paltry, momentous Christmas trees. Drs been on strike for 3wks while govt act like the Gen Pop can do without medicsIt’s a shit storm we live in.

Apparently, Bitch, and Children: An Incomplete List of Notable Peoplel Delivered Pizza To... tybaar It's coming up on a year now since I got my curent job as a pizza delivery girl, and I thought this would be a good time to delve into the lttle ever- expanding WTFPIZZA note I keep on my cell that helps me remember some of my more, uh -interesting deliveries So without further ado and in no particular order, here's some pizza customers who left a lasting impression on me thus far A bearded man who answered the door and periodically spat blood into a crusted Harley-Davidson coffee mug while counting out his cash. A woman who slipped me a business card (in ieu of tip) for a laser tatto0 removal clinic, explaining In case you want to bring your mutilated skin back to how God intended it to be. At least three Batmans so far, but only one who did the voice. - An elderly Spanish woman who meekly presented me with a (rather classy) pead-handled .32 snub nosed revolver and asked if I knew how to load it (I do) and also, #1 could load it for her (I didnt). -A group of EMTs hanging out in the back of an ambulance at a recently extinguished (but still smouldering) house fire. -A man with a thick Alabama accent who admonished me for standing in front of his mailbox while I waited for him to answer the door. He then explained how this was a federal offense because I was "obstructing the mal system and demanded my social security number so he could report me to the proper authorties A group of young teenage girls (like 14-16) who begged me to buy a case of Bud Light (ew why) and bring it back to them. - A hotel room full of badass middie-aged women all dressed as Professor McGonagall from the Hamy Potter films, who were also completely wasted on Jello shots. They kept encouraging me to stay and party with them. A 20-something dude who answered the door with an unsheathed katana dangling through a belt loop on his jeans. Multiple instances of people asking if# I would sell them pot. (bitch get your own dealer sheesh) A guy who slipped a twenty directly into my shirt because I apparently was the "spitting image" of his deceased daughter -A woman who admonished me for driving a Mazda, and wrote "get a real car in the tip portion of my credit receipt. A very drunk dude who gave me his iPhone and had me take a bunch of Myspace-esque pictures of the both of us. He did the duck lips thing in every shot Multiple prank deliveries joke's on you motherfucker, I get paid for the gas AND I eat the pizzas you ordered) - An elderty man who wrote FUCK OFF as his signature on a credit receipt - A thirty-something guy who begged to get his order for free because he works so hard. He visibly teared up and sniffled when I told him I couldnt do anything. A dudebro wearing a bath robe and socks+sandals (indoors) who straight up wordlessly yanked the pizzas out of my hands without paying and shut the door. Multiple knockings were of no avail -A woman who angrily demanded to see my ID because she refused to believe my claims that I'm female. She proceeded to snatch my drivers icense out of my hand, run back into her house and show it to her children while pointing back at me. A kid no older than 14 who desperately tried to convince me to play WoW on the free custom server he was playing on. (But it has double - A guy who spent the entire time I was there digging a (impressively large) booger out of his nose. He proceeded to smear it on, thankfully, HIS copy of the receipt. An on-duty cop who flagged me down by intercepting me on the road before I got to the police station and pulling me over to get his pizza. -A drill instructor looking-guy who filled out his entire credit card receipt, specifically wrote 0.00 in the tip portion, then proceeded to write out a check for seventy-eight cents and handed it to me. It said pizza tip" in the For section A furious lady who yelled at me for a solid five minutes (1 kept track) al about how long it took for her delivery to get to her. She then tipped me an extra ten bucks on a six dolar order. I dunno. - An incredibly stoned teenager trying and failing to look sober. When I complimented his Adventure Time wallet (which was super cute) and asked where he got it, he immediately looked temified, sat down on the floor and muttered 1... I don't know... - Obligatory naked man with unimpressive penis - A chick at a house party who answered the door and immediately tuned to vomit into her mailbox A surly Korean mom with an amazing shoulder tattoo of a baby giving birth to a fullgrown woman - A man who lived in one of those mini-mansions inside a gated community, who sported a seemingly massive collection of what appeared to be solid glass spheres of varying size and color. I only got a quick glance in his house but there had to be hundreds of them in display racks, tables, shelves- everywhere. - A group of 20-something guys who challenged me to sing the original Pokemon theme song, which I did. And perfectly, I may add. A completely iced-out musclebound gangster kid who was blaring Regina Spektor so loud and with so much bass I actually couldnt hear anything he was saying. An elderty guy who deadpan asked me if I knew anyone who could score him holowpoint bulets. - An adorable older lesbian couple who were mortified that they didnt have any extra money for a tip, so they gave me a big sack of pistachios nstead. It took me three weeks to finish the bag this was so worth reading Souroe: tybaar story time his is. 219,895 notes realy cool actualy Pizza for Strange People

Being Alone, Crazy, and Facebook: A mother-of-two suffering from postpartum depression has posed for a powerful photoshoot featuring two vastly different parenting scenarios to show what it is really like to live with the mood disorder Kathy DiVincenzo with Paul DiVincenzo and Danielle Fantis May 2 at 7-27am- Chances are, you're feeling pretty uncomfortable right now (trust me I am too). I'm going to challenge you to push past the discomfort soclety has placed on postpartum mental illness and hear me out May has been declared Postpartum Depression Awareness Month and as someone with diagnosed postpartum depression, anxiety, and OCD I feel like it's time to show you what that can really look like, not just the side of me that's Facebook worthy The truth is, both of these pictures represent my life depending on the day. I would only ever comfortably share one of these realities though and that's the problem. The only thing more exhausting than having these conditions is pretending daily that I don't. I work twice as hard to hide this reality from you because I'm afraid to make you uncomfortable. I'm afraid you'll think I'm weak, crazy, a terrible mother, or the other million things my mind convinces me of and I know Im not alone in those thoughts. We need to stop assuming that the postpartum period is always euphoric, because for 1 in 7 it's not. We need to start asking new parents how they're doing in a deeper way than the normal, "so how are you doing? that triggers the knee jerk, "everything's greatl" response. We need to learn the signs, symptoms, risk factors, and support plans for postpartum conditions. We need to break the stigma and BEndTheSilence by sharing our stories and letting others know theyre not alone. If you have had a postpartum mood disorder please share your story below, or simply postto show you can relate. Let's show athers that they don't have to suffer in silence n case no one has told you, you're doing an amazing job. You are loved and you are worthy. You're nat alone. Information to local and national support will be in the comment section. I know how unbel ievably hard it is to reach out, but I promise you it is worth it. YOU'RE worth it Thank you to my close friend Danielle from Danielle Fantis Photography, a fellow mom that struggled with ppd, for capturing these images for me and encouraging me to share them with you. She encouraged other women who have dealt with postpartum depression to share their stories. Many did Lauren Fisher So very true and such a serious topic that needs to be out in the open more! I struggled with both postpartum depression and anxiety. I'm lucky to have a great support system of family, friends and doctors that helped me through it. I pray all those that experience it don't suffer in silence. Like Reply 1 Yesterday at 12:10pm Charly Higson I feel like this most days, suffered with ppd with my 1st and still suffering a year later with my 2nd child. X Like Reply 21 hrs Grace Cenita nobody would understand postpartum even your husband doesn't know about it! Thanks for your bravery. Count me in, im one of the others Like Reply 1 Yesterday at 12:16pm Edited Stephanie Creasey Thank you, so much for sharing this. I was fortunate enough not to have ppd,but I do have OCD and as a new mom, I've struggled daily with making sure everything is always picture perfect. You are strong, you are oved and you are doing a great job! Don't let your inner demons win. Like Reply 1 Yesterday at 9:44am Now go find a mom in your life, and ask her "how are you? No, how are you really? And then listen. Mom goes viral with photos showing what life with postpartum depression actually looks like.
