Bitch, Crime, and Driving: did you know? In Finland, speeding tickets are calculated based on your income - causing some Finnish millionaires to pay fines of over $100,000. PHOTO: SWINGLECOLLINS DIDYOUKNOWBLOG.COM trapqueenkoopa: futureevilscientist: thespectacularspider-girl: lewmzi: prochoice-or-gtfo: alternian-neverland: redbloodedamerica: did-you-kno: In Finland, speeding tickets are calculated based on your income - causing some Finnish millionaires to pay fines of over $100,000. Source This is what “equality” looks like in that liberal fairy tale land of Finland.  They punish you proportionately to how successful you are.  Sounds really “fair.” Except… it is fair? Because it’s proportionate. I don’t get what’s difficult about that. An impoverished person paying $400 dollar fine isn’t the same as a millionaire paying the same amount. For the poor person, $400 dollars could mean starving. Would you really claim it would have the same consequence for a rich man? Would it even be noticeable to him, while the absence of food in their stomach would be glaring to a poorer man? Would it be fair for a man to starve for the same crime as a man that would be having a three course meal? By taking income into account, it allows the impoverished able to still survive while paying any fines they may incur. And, ultimately, while $100,000 dollars would be noticeable to a millionaire, they would still get by. And, assuming the law is properly implemented, they would be paying the same equivalent of their yearly income that a poorer person would. That’s what makes it fair. They would be impacted the same way - but you are looking at the amount rather than the equation. Also, it’s important to make sure that even the rich would pause at the cost of a fine. They need to fear the law just as a poor man does.  Oh no… rich people facing fines that might actually make them consider not doing illegal things because the punishments might actually hurt them… how unfair…-V Finnish person here. Our speeding ticket system owns and only people who bitch about them are people who wanna break the laws - the loudest whiners are the rich people who think they can just pay their way out of trouble and that’s why we have laws like that. 400 dollar ticket. Person making 10 dollars an hour: “Fuck, I better slow down” Millionaire driving a Jaguar: “LOL 400 DOLLARS, FUCK THAT, NYOOM” Compared to a proportional ticket. Person making 10 dollars an hour and must pay 400 dollar ticket: “Fuck, I better slow down.” Millionaire who must pay 100,000 dollar ticket: “Fuck, I better slow down.” Like wtf. Some people have been so brainwashed by capitalism and worship of the rich that they literally can’t tell the difference between fairness and unfairness anymore. It IS fair. The fact that it flies in the status quo so much should make you think about that status quo. I can’t believe they tried to rationalize that it wasn’t fair it’s literally the fairest way to assign a ticket wtf.

LOL Like Reply 347 August 5 at 2:31pm Help Today at 1:56 PM Hey Jeremy, Unfortunately I setup a recurring political contribution on Donald Trumps website. After the most recent Trump blow outs, I've left voice messages for his campaign to call me back to provide instructions on how to cancel that recurring payment but l've also logged on to his website and there's NO instructions or place on the website to stop the recurring payment. I don't think it exists and I imagine I'm not the only one trying to find the place to cancel it. I thought maybe if you could bring some attention to it, maybe it would suddenly appear on his site after some news channels made a stink about it. ghostclvb: scrptrx: Mic decided to investigate these claims for themselves and see if this alleged former Trumpian was telling the truth. They set up a $1 recurring donation to the Trump Campaign, and when they tried to cancel it, Mic confirmed that there was no cancelation option. Not only that, but you could not edit or remove your credit card information on the website. Mic concluded that the way to stop donating is to call your bank and cancel your credit card. If not, you will be donating to Trump forever. To be fair, Mic also set up recurring $1 donations to Clinton’s campaign to see if they too tried to trap you into an eternity of donating. Mic noted that it was very simple to cancel donations on Clinton’s website. [kind of important] [how to cancel] LIAR, SCAMMER, MESSY ORANGE GOBLIN WHO LIVES FOR DRAMA

80s, America, and Anime: When Japan is exposed to Western culture DARK SOULS COWBOY BEBOP TRIGUN BONUS IN PlayStation, SPAR MNTENDO Medum level When the West is exposed to Japanese culture nanga THIS EAS THE 0 lemonwicky: jaxblade: cari28ch3-me: mymahoushoujo: rip-roaring-muffin: everyonelovesrobots: where is the lie though? It’s a lie of omission. You’re comparing highly polished mainstream examples of iconic Japanese media to low budget, indie, and amateur american works. If you wanted to be fair the second image should look more like this: The cultural exchange between American and Japanese art, particularly in animation, is hardly a one way streak. Here we have Panty and Stocking, which boasts an artistic style that draws heavily upon modern western animation with it’s hard outlines and comical proportions. Shows like Dexter’s Laboratory barrow dynamic posses, dramatic framing, and highly expressive faces form anime and manga. Early anime and manga developed it’s distinct big eyes and childlike features by taking cues from western animation of the 20′s and 30′s Betty Boop, in particular, was immensely popular in Japan. Her creators even made this short in appreciation of her Japanese fan-base. WAIT I CAN ADD TO THIS ALREADY OBSCENELY LONG POST. The entire Magical Girl genre is a big example of Western (primarily U.S.) and Japanese cultural exchange! BeWitched (which was inspired by the 1940′s American movie “I Married a Witch”) was incredibly popular with young girls! This prompted the creation of the first popular Magical Girl Sally the Witch. When the “Little Witch” Subgenre was big in the 70s the U.S. countered with animated Sabrina (from the Archie comics) which followed the same formula albeit with an older girl. The 80s we start seeing more “flash of light” henshins/transformations being utilized along with the rise of the “Magical Idol” sub-genre in Japan it gave birth to shows like Creamy Mami and Magical Emi, in the U.S. it made way for Jem and the Holograms and She-Re Princess of Power (not a magical idol but still uses “flash of light” transformations). Jem was even a collab with U.S. doing the writing and Japan doing the animation! The “Magical Warrior” sub-genre emerges in the 90s (even tho it has roots in the 70s with shows like Cutie Honey). This doesn’t catch on in America until the early 00′s with Atomic Betty (Canadian creation) and The Life and Times of Juniper Lee but we did see the start of it with the Canadian/Argentinian collab called Cyber Six. We also get W.I.T.C.H. and WINX Club in the early 00s from Italy which are both probably the most heavily influenced from Japan’s then current MG show structure. Today we have Steven Universe, Bee and Puppycat, Star vs. the Forces of Evil, Lolirock, The Miraculous Ladybug, and if it gets picked up Twelve Forever which are all great Western MG shows that are influenced by Japan! I could go on, I haven’t even scraped the ice berg on this! I have a whole hour panel I run on this subject called “Magical Girls from Around The World” The point is the Magical Girl genre- and tbh animation in general- has been Japan and America (with some other Western countries thrown in) talking back and forth since the 60s. I leave you with probably the most direct influence: can I add to this that Osamu Tezuka aka “the God of modern Manga” was inspired by Bambi  into deciding to give big eyes to his drawings so that they would look more expresive. He also remained a big fan of a certain Jewish American animator until his death, oh yeah this guy Walt Disney himself was also intrested in Tezuka’s work, with Astroboy being one of his favorites. A similar case exists now between John Lasseter (Pixar and Disney fame) and Hayao Miyasaki (Studio Ghibli) who are big fans of each other’s work. Japan and America are less of a competition to those who work on it and more of an inspiration, it is very often the fans and not the creators who create rivalries between people that would be friends in real life. SWEET JESUS HALLELUJAH THIS SITE CAN PRODUCE SOME GOOD I LOVE POSTS LIKE THESE.
