Anaconda, Books, and cnn.com: Student Accidentally Receives $1M in Financial Aid @balleralert Student Accidentally Receives $1M in Financial Aid - blogged by: @its_sharr β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β € A South African student accidentally received a deposit of $1 million in her financial aid account and spent more than $60k before authorities realized the mistake. Walter Sisulu University in Eastern Cape province accidentally loaded the massive funds onto the student's financial aid debit card. β €β €β €β €β €β €β € The financial assistant was only supposed to be a $100 stipend for food and books, and was available to the student immediately. However, four extra zeroes were accidentally added to the deposit, quicky turning the student's $100 stipend into a $1 million shopping spree. University officially didn't realize the mistake until another student discovered the young woman's newly found extravagant spending habits and alerted authorities. β €β €β €β €β €β €β € While several media outlets identified the student on social media, university officials have refused to release the student's identity in compliance with South African law. In just a few weeks, WSU claims that the student spent tens of thousands of dollars on miscellaneous items and WSU officials have started examining her transaction records to determine the extent of her shopping spree. β €β €β €β €β €β €β € According to CNN, the student's financial aid account has been blocked and the remaining balance has been retracted. β €β €β €β €β €β €β € "The student will be liable for the money she's already spent," a WSU spokesperson stated. Intellimali, the financial aid company responsible for issuing the cards, has taken full responsibility for the oversight and have put new polices in place to ensure this incident never happens again. β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Intellimali has also appointed an auditor to investigate the incident further and claimed legal action will be taken against the student for the misuse of funds. The South African Parliament also weighed in on the oversight stating, "this is unacceptable that such a grave mistake as this one could occur undetected on money appropriated by Parliament."

Also I do all my shopping thru the southwest rewards website so even if I buy shoes at Nordstrom I get points." I'm like "wow. For me though southwest been low key getting more expensive though(?)" And she just like "yeah I don't let them drop the price on me. If they do, I switch to the next day flight, then switch back. Like if I book at $400 and it drops to $300, I switch and switch back. Down to $250? Same. Until I'm satisfied I got the best price." DID YALL HEAR THAT SHIT. "UNTIL I'M SATISFIED." She the MF queen bruh, southwest exists to shuttle her pretty ass around.

Ass, Clothes, and England: The Ionian Chiton. The Dorian Chiton. Costume. Chitons Marjorie & C. H. B.Quennell, Everyday Things in Archaic Greece (London: B. T Batsford, 1931) killerchickadee Wait, wait.. Is that seriously ? How their clothes go? yeah hey whats up bout to put some fucking giant sheets on my body childrentalking lets bring back sheetwares ardatli When you're carding, spinning and weaving everything from scratch, using the big squares exactly as they come off the loom must seem like a fucking brillant idea. 90% (or more) of pre-14th century clothing is made purely on squares (and sometimes triangles cut from squares) annathecrow How did they get the fabric so fine it draped like that? Was that something medieval europe forgot? Or do I just have a completely misguided image of historical clothing? ardati Medieval Europe also had incredibly fine weaves, though the ancient world tended to have them beat. Linen was found in Egypt woven with a fineness that we're still trying to replicate, and there was a kind of cotton woven in India caled woven wind that was supposedly stil translucent at eight layers, and wool shawls so fine that the entire thing could be drawn through a wedding nng The way they could get away with pinking and slashing doublets in the 16th century was partially because the fabrics were so tightly woven that you could simply cut a line on the bias and nothing would fray Modern fabric machining sucks ass in terms of giving us any kind of quality like the kind human beings produced prior to the Industrial Revolution yells about textile history* Reblogging because its fascinating uidu-regani The Celts made very fine clothing as well. They invented plaid after al, and the same weaves that have been found at the La Tene/Halstatt salt mines in Austria were also found as far away as westem China in the tombs of the Tarim mummies Can we talk about 18th century and regency era musin as well because that shit is gorgeous. It's so fine it's more transparent than silk chiffon and oh the tiny hems you can make with n I have an 18th century neckerchief and the hem is about 2mm wide. Not kidding, 2mmll Because it didn't fray lke our stuff does now. All we can produce nowadays is a rough, scratchy, bullshit excuse for muslin and it's horrid bmwiid I love this because we've gotten so blind to what makes 'good fabric now machine lace? horrible scratchy shit mostly made from poly. Actual lace is handmade, lasts for fucking EVER and looks stunning. Regency gowns fucking rocked in terms of fabric quality- we use muslin as a throw away' before sewing the real fabric, back then it WAS a real fabric and it was so finely made you wouldn t even think it was the same stuff Hand hemming is still the best way to finish off anything, but harder than hell because of the shitty weave of modern fabrics. Satin? Silks?I Pah. Yes, fabric is cheaper, more affordable and varied than before, but it is an area where QUALITY was sacrificed for QUANTITY (I don't want to seem like I'm shitting on how great we have it now for clothes and martials or anything, because YAYll but also, I'd love to get my mits on a bolt of real Muslin) archaeologists recently found some Bronze Age fabric woven on site and preserved in marsh in England. it's fine to die for. they were exporting it and trading into Asia.
