Bad, Books, and Clothes: he Swiss are voting on a plan to end poverty forever. Step one: give every adult $33,600 a year, no strings attached. There is no step two. Photo: Flickr/twicepix fangirltothefullest: tank-grrl: hello-missmayhem: cptprocrastination: doomhamster: belcanta: nikkidubs: attentiondeficitaptitude: belcanta: Guaranteed basic income to every citizen, whether or not they are employed to ensure their survival and that they live in a dignified, humane way, preventing poverty, illness, homelessness, reducing crime, encouraging higher education and learning vocations as well as helping society become more prosperous as a whole.  Wow. Forget raising the minimum wage. This is much much better idea. The minimum wage could actually drop if we had basic income. But Americans would never go for it. Miserably slogging through 12 hour days and having businesses open 24/7 is too engrained in our culture. “BUT WHERE WILL THE GOVERNMENT GET THE MONEY?” screamed Joe Schmoe, slamming a meaty fist onto the table and getting mouth-froth all over the front of his greying tank top. “You libt*rds all think money grows on TREES!! HAHA!”“But where will people get the incentive to work?!” Mindy Bindy cried, flapping her hands in front of her face. She’d had a fear of the unemployed lollygagging about ever since she was a child and her mother told her to be afraid of the unemployed lollygagging about. “You think people should get paid for nothing? I work hard for my money!” “But who will serve me?” grumbled Marty McMoneybags. “Who will make me feel important? Who will do my laundry and cook my food and stand in front of me wearing a plastic smile while I take out all my stress—because I do have a lot of stress, you know, being this rich is stressful—on them?” He paused and straightened out the piles of hundred dollar bills on the desk in front of him, then raised his two watery, outraged eyes up to the Heavens. “Lord, if there are no poor people, how will I know that I’m rich??” I laughed. This is perfect! Well said! The thing is, while I’m sure you could scrape up a few people who’d be willing to just float by on a guaranteed minimum income? For most people the choice to work would be a no-brainer. “Hmmm. I can get by on 33k a year, or I can take that part time job and make 48k… enough to move to a better apartment, maybe take the family on vacation. Sold.” Hell, most people would want to work simply because it gives one a sense of dignity and something to do with one’s time. (Speaking as someone who’s been unemployed, on extended sick leave, etc. in her time, the boredom and sense of isolation that comes with not having a job is almost as bad as the humiliation of having to depend on other people for one’s survival.) And with this system, part-time jobs and “non-skilled” jobs would be much more readily available because nobody would need to work two or three jobs just to stay afloat! Which would ALSO mean that employers and customers couldn’t shamelessly exploit employees the way they can today, because if losing a job weren’t necessarily a financial disaster, more people would be willing to walk out on jobs where they weren’t being treated with dignity. And if this also applies to students (and it should) then student loans would become much less of a problem, and fewer people would flunk out of school because of having to juggle studies and work. Far fewer people would be forced to stay with abusive partners, parents or roommates because they couldn’t afford to move out. And the thing is, all those people who suddenly had money? They’d be spending it. They’d be getting all the stuff they can’t afford now - new clothes, books, toys, locally-produced food, car repairs - and with each purchase money would flow BACK to the government, because VAT, also income tax. The unemployed and/or disabled wouldn’t need special support any more - which would also mean the government could fire however many admins who are currently engaged in humiliating - *cough* making sure those people aren’t getting money they don’t deserve. Same for medical benefits and pensions. And I’m no legal scholar, but I somehow imagine less financial desperation would lead to less petty crime, and hence less need for police and security everywhere? TL;DR Doomie thinks this is a good idea, laughs at those who protest. reblogging for more top commentary They tried something like this out in Canada as a sort of social experiment, called Mincome. What they found was that, on the whole, people continued to work about as much as they did before. Only new mothers and teenagers worked substantially less hours.  But wait, there’s more. Because parents were spending just a little more time at home and involved with their families, test scores increased. Because teens didn’t have to work to support their families, drop-out rates decreased. Crime rates, hospital visits, psychiatric hospitalizations and domestic abuse rates all dropped, as well. More adults pursued higher education. Those who continued to work reported more job flexibility and more opportunity to choose employment they preferred. Basically, now you can go prove to your asshole family members that society won’t collapse without poor people for you to feel better than. The picture is awesome, but read the commentary, that’s what I’m reblogging for. The only reason people are against this is because when people are financially stable there is less crime (therefore less prison industrial complex free labour) there are less medical problems (IE less hospital visits meaning less money for the medical and pharmaceutical companies) and the point I am making is that a full guaranteed income to all means that those wealthy people at the top get less money and so they try and fool you into thinking it’s bad so you help encourage them lining their pockets.

With debt levels spiraling out of control as they are, america might have to do this in the near future, in order to prevent economic collapse from people just not having money to spend. The only problem i forsee with this is that, in order to get the money to distribute, taxes on rich people would have to increase by a lot, and if taxes raise too high, they just fucking move to another country to avoid paying them. If there was a way to prevent this, or if the whole world implemented a standard like this at the same time thereby removing the incentive to flee tax hikes, then this would absolutely work out great

Clothes, Ironic, and Life: Why do l understand this G.O.A.T. @thatudiboy There is always that one innocent spoon in every home that you just dislike for no reason Life Tips: Making Mornings Easier If you’re anything like a normal human being, you have days where you’re just totally off. You sleep through your alarm and suddenly the whole day is thrown off. Below are some of my tips for making those off days or even just everyday a bit easier. 1. Pack everything the night before This seems like a no-brainer, I tell myself to do this often and when I don’t follow through, I wish I had. Set aside your outfit (down to the undergarments-seriously) If you workout (if you don’t-you should try to) set aside your workout clothes and shoes. You’ll have less excuses to not get started. Pack your lunch-don’t forget to fill up your water bottle Pack your work bag-backpack-purse with everything you will need to make it through the day. 2. Be prepared It only takes a bit of time to get yourself prepared for just about anything. Think about your essentials, things you wouldn’t want to be stuck without and things you always find yourself needing. You can either add these items to your daily bag or stash them in your car-desk-locker. 3. Don’t over complicate things If you know you are going to have a stressful week-plan ahead. Stick to the basics 4. Make lists Duh. Take a few minutes to get it together, list out things you’ve forgotten (groceries, errands, etc) and prioritize. It will seem much more simple when everything is laid out in front of you and not jumbled up in your brain. 5. To remember things: keep them close to you I’m horrible at taking off my makeup. I made a nasty habit of sleeping in makeup and only washing my face in the shower. To tackle this, I’ve left my makeup remover right by my toothbrush. This way when I brush my teeth at night, it’s easy to pull out a wipe and get rid of my raccoon eyes. I’ve also added night cream and Chapstick on my bedside table. Taking care of your skin is important! Lips too! 6. Set reminders Use the phone you are undoubtedly attached to. Set yourself alarms and reminders if you simply can’t be bothered to get it together. A little bit of preparation, planning and being easier on yourself can go a long way towards making every day better. billsimportantposts

Bad, Books, and Clothes: he Swiss are voting on a plan to end poverty forever. Step one: give every adult $33,600 a year, no strings attached. There is no step two. Photo: Flickr/twicepix loon-whisperer: tank-grrl: hello-missmayhem: cptprocrastination: doomhamster: belcanta: nikkidubs: attentiondeficitaptitude: belcanta: Guaranteed basic income to every citizen, whether or not they are employed to ensure their survival and that they live in a dignified, humane way, preventing poverty, illness, homelessness, reducing crime, encouraging higher education and learning vocations as well as helping society become more prosperous as a whole.  Wow. Forget raising the minimum wage. This is much much better idea. The minimum wage could actually drop if we had basic income. But Americans would never go for it. Miserably slogging through 12 hour days and having businesses open 24/7 is too engrained in our culture. “BUT WHERE WILL THE GOVERNMENT GET THE MONEY?” screamed Joe Schmoe, slamming a meaty fist onto the table and getting mouth-froth all over the front of his greying tank top. “You libt*rds all think money grows on TREES!! HAHA!”“But where will people get the incentive to work?!” Mindy Bindy cried, flapping her hands in front of her face. She’d had a fear of the unemployed lollygagging about ever since she was a child and her mother told her to be afraid of the unemployed lollygagging about. “You think people should get paid for nothing? I work hard for my money!” “But who will serve me?” grumbled Marty McMoneybags. “Who will make me feel important? Who will do my laundry and cook my food and stand in front of me wearing a plastic smile while I take out all my stress—because I do have a lot of stress, you know, being this rich is stressful—on them?” He paused and straightened out the piles of hundred dollar bills on the desk in front of him, then raised his two watery, outraged eyes up to the Heavens. “Lord, if there are no poor people, how will I know that I’m rich??” I laughed. This is perfect! Well said! The thing is, while I’m sure you could scrape up a few people who’d be willing to just float by on a guaranteed minimum income? For most people the choice to work would be a no-brainer. “Hmmm. I can get by on 33k a year, or I can take that part time job and make 48k… enough to move to a better apartment, maybe take the family on vacation. Sold.” Hell, most people would want to work simply because it gives one a sense of dignity and something to do with one’s time. (Speaking as someone who’s been unemployed, on extended sick leave, etc. in her time, the boredom and sense of isolation that comes with not having a job is almost as bad as the humiliation of having to depend on other people for one’s survival.) And with this system, part-time jobs and “non-skilled” jobs would be much more readily available because nobody would need to work two or three jobs just to stay afloat! Which would ALSO mean that employers and customers couldn’t shamelessly exploit employees the way they can today, because if losing a job weren’t necessarily a financial disaster, more people would be willing to walk out on jobs where they weren’t being treated with dignity. And if this also applies to students (and it should) then student loans would become much less of a problem, and fewer people would flunk out of school because of having to juggle studies and work. Far fewer people would be forced to stay with abusive partners, parents or roommates because they couldn’t afford to move out. And the thing is, all those people who suddenly had money? They’d be spending it. They’d be getting all the stuff they can’t afford now - new clothes, books, toys, locally-produced food, car repairs - and with each purchase money would flow BACK to the government, because VAT, also income tax. The unemployed and/or disabled wouldn’t need special support any more - which would also mean the government could fire however many admins who are currently engaged in humiliating - *cough* making sure those people aren’t getting money they don’t deserve. Same for medical benefits and pensions. And I’m no legal scholar, but I somehow imagine less financial desperation would lead to less petty crime, and hence less need for police and security everywhere? TL;DR Doomie thinks this is a good idea, laughs at those who protest. reblogging for more top commentary They tried something like this out in Canada as a sort of social experiment, called Mincome. What they found was that, on the whole, people continued to work about as much as they did before. Only new mothers and teenagers worked substantially less hours.  But wait, there’s more. Because parents were spending just a little more time at home and involved with their families, test scores increased. Because teens didn’t have to work to support their families, drop-out rates decreased. Crime rates, hospital visits, psychiatric hospitalizations and domestic abuse rates all dropped, as well. More adults pursued higher education. Those who continued to work reported more job flexibility and more opportunity to choose employment they preferred. Basically, now you can go prove to your asshole family members that society won’t collapse without poor people for you to feel better than. The picture is awesome, but read the commentary, that’s what I’m reblogging for. “Wait, so what happened?  Why did Mincome end if it was working?” Wikipedia:  “–  was closed down in 1979 under the Conservative government –”“Ah.”

Memes, Zero, and Desk: When you put something in the cart when ur shopping with ur mom and u hope she doesn't notice. @Dr Smashlove Aw hell, fvck, nah Bruh 😂. My mama had eagle eyes at the grocery store line like a MOTHERFVCKER bruh. Hershey bar? Out. Pack of gum? Out. Box of Oreos? Out plus slap 😂. That was a no brainer. I would literally see the cashier grab it and she was juuuuuuuust about to graze it across the scanner and right before the laser hit the package's bar code my mama said "I am sorry. Please put that to the side." And just then I would bear down, close my eyes, and SHMACK! Yep. Didn't even hurt. Just a minor sting. I expected that shit. Ayeeee thank u mama. There were a few (maybe four (4) or five (5)) times in my upbringing where I thought shit was sweet. And u were always there with a glare and that little (albeit fierce) hand to remind me that by all means, shit isn't sweet, shit was never sweet, and, to be clear, at no point in the future will shit ever be, sweet. Ain't no sweetness bih. Zero 😂. I went thru a fat phase as a adult where I would eat like 18 Twix bars at my desk like "HAHAHAHA SEE MAMA SHIT REALLY IS SWEET" but then I'd feel nauseous, disgusting, disgusted, and unhappy and realize, "U know what, shit ain't sweet and that's potentially a good thing. Too much sweetness will make u sick and give u sugar diabetes." Mama u was a wise one. Or just cruel, and your cruelty masqueraded as wisdom. One of the two. Either way, u da real MVP 😍😂😂😂

Craigslist, Memes, and Texting: Florida Woman Sells Positive Pregnancy Tests or Urine on Craigslist to Pay for School @balleralert ONLY ON ACTION NEWS JAX woMAN SELLING POSITIVE PREGNANCY TESTS ONLINE EAST ARLINGTON N NEWS JAX 45 Florida Woman Sells Positive Pregnancy Tests or Urine on Craigslist to Pay for School – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ College is very expensive and very few have the means to pay their way through school. Therefore, many get jobs or find creative ways to make ends meet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to AJC, a Florida woman took creative to another level, when she told reporters that she has been selling her positive pregnancy tests and urine on Craigslist to pay for school. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The woman, who did not want to be identified, said she sells the tests or urine for $30 a pop, however, according to the ad, which offers “positive pregnancy tests or urine” in an “absolutely no questions asked type of deal,” customers traveling over 60 miles can get two tests for $35. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Very self-explanatory,” the post reads. “I am providing a product in which the consumer is able to purchase positive pregnancy tests or urine for your own use. Whether you are using it for your own amusement such as a prank, or to blackmail the CEO of Apple who you are having an affair with, I don’t care at all. This is an absolutely no questions asked type of deal. Tell me what you need I provide it for monetary exchange. I will not overcharge for the urine test but I will not be low balled either. Do not contact me if you are going to be cheap and difficult. Contact me by text and you will get an immediate response. Feel free to contact when you need to I check my email every hour. For those traveling over 60 miles I will give 2 tests for $35.00.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, this whole ordeal started when the woman was trying to find a job online, looking for things she could do at home while pregnant. She said she makes “two hundred dollars in a day,” from peeing, something she must do “no matter what.” “Me being in college working on a bachelor’s and needing all this money to pay for a degree, this was a no-brainer,” she said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Apparently, there are no laws against selling urine, however, faking a pregnancy can lead to fraud charges, reports state.

Alive, Baked, and College: they grow up so fast @Drsmashlove Ladies if u want a man in your bed u gotta have a comfortable bed. With that said lemme give u my guide to a bed that will not make me invent a work emergency and Usain Bolt out yo crib after I smash u out. (1) Multiple pillows. A brother like me got stomach issues from leading a high stress life. Plus, pillows can be used for various sexual positions. U can never have enuf pillows. One definitely ain't enuf. U gotta be out yo damn mind to try to pull the ol college student "sorry! I usually sleep alone 😬" one-pillow situation - that we gotta share 😫. Do u still wear flip flops to the shower and eat lunch and dinner in a cafeteria with swirly ice cream for dessert ol freshman 15 lookin ass? No? Exactly. U an adult now, go to target and buy some pillows. (2) Covers. The professionals among u got two comforters which makes your situation damn near a furnace - u smart. U very smart 😍...and that lead me to my next point. (3) Cool room. All u ladies who live in a old ass building in Wrigleyville with a bed by the heat radiator for Chrissake your room is a sauna. U pull the cover off me and steam might come off my ass and burn your face like a baked potato out the oven after u tear the aluminum foil off. Just put sour cream and cheese on me Cot damn it I been cooked alive. If yo room is a steam bath, crack a window. The hot-cold can be refreshing. (4) If the sheets is stinky winky status I'm gone. Imma invent a work emergency before I even get nekky. This is a no brainer. I love a womanly scent all over the bed because sweat is sexy to me but keep things tidy and let us be the ones to fvck it all up 😀. Anyway, if u meet these criteria, imma move in. Congratulations. I'm a roommate now. U just started a family. U feel me? We adopting a pup. Let's go to traders joe and buy wholesome, nutty organic non-GMO snacks to eat while we watch Netflix after we just smonked the marijuanas. Simple as that. It feels good to be home 😍😂😂😂

Condom, Honeymoon, and Lesbians: 1. Myth: A woman's "first time" is meant to hurt. A woman's first-time might hurt if she's not turned on enough, if her partner is too rough, or if she's feeling anxious and tense Also, while most women's hymens are worn away before their first times, it plays basically no role in discomfort during sex anyway. 2. Myth: You can tell when you (or someone else) have an STI. Unfortunately, a quick peek with a miror every now and then won't cut it. Lots of STis don't have any signs or symptoms at all, and the only way to be sure you're clear is if you get tested. 3. Myth: Hymens "break" the first time a woman has sex. Nope. Hymens can't break. They're more like a door frame than a barier. They're usually worn away by the time you're a teen thanks to things like exercise, and even walking, and if they weren't, you wouldn't be able to menstruate properly. So, if women bleed during their first time, it's nat their hymen "breaking"-it's probably vaginal tissue bleeding because of poor lubrication or 4. Myth: Taking PrEP means you don't have to use a condom. PrEP is a drug that significantly lowers the risk of becoming HIV positive and some people believe that if you take it, you no langer need to use a PrEP only reduces the risk of HIV infection, so it doesn't protect against other STDs like gonomhoea or chlamydia, and it only works if taken daily. Using a condom and PrEP also reduces the risk of Hiv even further, so it's a no-brainer 5. Myth: Most women can orgasm just from vaginal sex. Most women need stimulation around their clitoris to orgasm, and that's totally normal. Around 70% ot women can't orgasm just from vaginal sex. So it you want to orgasm during penetration, make sure that area gets some attention. 6-Myth: Using a condom ruins" sex. Can't teel anything when wearing a condom? This is most likely because you're wearing the wrong size and there isn't enough lubrication. Finding the right fit will drastically improve your experience. 7. Myth: Vaginas get looser the more a woman has sex. A locked up, squeezed up, shut-down vagina is a tense, non-aroused one, not a virginal one." When women are turned on and relaxed, their vaginal muscles loosen slightly, and tighten again after sex. Or, put another way, if giving birth to a baby doesn't permanently change the shape of a vagina neither will a penis 8. Myth: Lesbians can't really have sex. This one neads to be debunked, like now. Lesbians can detinitely have sex, in lots of difterent ways, with or without sex toys-just like any other couple 9. Myth: Virginity only involves a penis and a vagina. There isn't one solid, exact definition of what "sex is. Most of us grew up thinking losing your virginity only involved PIV sex, but this is a realy heterocentric view that excludes a lot of people's realities and experiences. The truth is, "virginity" has different meanings to different people and only you get to say when you've "lost it" or not 10. Myth: You only need to use condoms for penetration. You can get STis from oral sex, so make sure to get regularly tested, and to use condoms or dental dams- whether you're giving or receiving. You can also get STis from sex toys, so putting condoms on them reduces the risk of you catching something (and can make them last longer 11. Myth: Women should pee before sex to avoid UTls. High school lied to us. Peeing before sex is the number one cause of honeymoon cystitis. You should wait to pee after sex because a strong pee stream increases the chances of pushing vaginal bacteria back out. 12. Myth: Older people never have sex. Your gramps are totally doing it. Studies show that 60% of men and 42% of women aged 65-74 are sexually active, though the trequency of sex reduces with age Basically, sex has no expiry date. 12 sex myths debunked!
