American Gothic: glumshoe Wheat fields are more mystical than fields of other crops. You are 7,000 times more likely to meet an old god or see a portent of doom in a wheat field than in a field of like... soybeans. greatrazinsofthesunne For your consideration: cornfields glumshoe Cornfields are less mystical than wheat fields but more mystical than soybean fields. Two-bit monsters congregate in corn fields to eat people, but their power is nothing compared to the things that manifest in wheat fields. systlin Have been in both wheat and cornfields; can confirm. Cornfields host monsters who eat people. Wheat fields attract old gods. whadyameanhesdead I have a theory that this is because the notions most of us have of "old gods" are pretty intrinsically European, and wheat was (and is) the staple crop of European life. It is quite literally tied to the ancestral rituals and beliefs of most white people. Odin, the Morrigan, and even Zeus are actually linked to a set of peoples who cultivated wheat. Meanwhile, corn (maize) is a crop native to the Americas. It features in the white cultural imagination in a very different way. Corn is a motif seen not in our ancestral myths, but in a much newer genre: the American Gothic. With its focus on the tensions between man and nature and-perhaps more importantly-the United States's history of genocide against its indigenous population and trade in enslaved Africans, the American Gothic is VERY preoccupied with agriculture. Our monsters come out of corn fields because corn is a symbol for not only what we did to the Native Americans (who were the first to grow the crop), but of what we are doing to the very land itself. Corn is a monument to our cultural sins. Meanwhile, I suspect that corn features very differently in the imaginations of people of color. If you asked a Native American person or a Latinx person what sort of mysticism they associate with corn fields, I imagine their answer would be very different than ours. TLDR: White people associate wheat with our ancestors' gods because our ancestors grew wheat. We associate corn with terrible monsters because it is a literal sign of our own monstrosity. moniquill Native American here, can confirm that small plots of corn feel safe and homey; ideally they should be interplanted with other crops. You find turkeys and possums and raccoons in the corn. It might tell you important knowledge. However. Giant monocultures of corn, where the corn grows unbroken for miles and miles, not near human habitation, devoid of local wildlife, just co on corn in the soft wind? Corn mega monocultures? Those sound like screaming. 36,181 notes American Gothic

My favorite teacher in high school started selling Monat. I commented on her post a link about hair loss and scalp burns. She messaged me. (I kept in the positivity at the end so we all had a slightly more positive ending).: 10:37 SAT 6:15 PM Hello, friend. It seems like you have concerns about Monat. http://isthisanmlm.com/? utm source=share&utm_medium= ios app&utm name-iossmf Type in Monat Check whether a company is an MLM Scheme. isthisanmim.com MLM scheme? Yes Pyramid How did you arrive at that conclusion? The conclusion that MLM is a pyramid scheme or the conclusion that Monat is MLM? MLM scheme According to a report that studied the business models of 350 MLMS, published on the Federal Trade Commission's website, at least 99% of [8] [9] people who join MLM companies lose money. Nonetheless, MLMS function because downline participants are encouraged to hold onto the belief that they can achieve large returns, while the statistical improbability of this is de-emphasised. MLMS have been made illegal or otherwise strictly regulated in some jurisdictions as merely variation of the traditional pyramid scheme. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi- level marketing?wprov=sfti1 Multi-level marketing Wikipedia en.wikipedia.org Is Mary Kay also a scheme? Yes So the free car that I earned through Mary Kay plus insurance was a scam? Scheme does not equal scam Good point It seems like you have a hard time trusting the marketing plan of MLMS I understand that you probably are proud because you've invested a lot of time, energy, and money into this and got your hopes up. Just trying to help. MLMS function more on a recruitment process than a selling process. The majority of them make more on recruitment. If you are able to recruit a lot of people, then you're more of a successful person at the company. But if you recruit someone who isn't good at recruiting, what happens to them? 99% of the time, they come out breaking evern or net loss. 99% of the time? 99.25%, to be exact, according to the Federal Trade Commission It's obviously very important to you to do your research and be as informed as possible. What makes you say that MLMS function more on recruiting? Although each MLM company dictates its own specific financial compensation plan for the payout of any earnings to their respective participants, the common feature that is found across all MLMS is that the compensation plans theoretically pay out to participants only from two potential revenue streams. The first is paid out from commissions of sales made by the participants directly to their own retail customers. The second is paid out from commissions based upon the wholesale purchases made by other distributors below the participant who have recruited those other participants into the MLM; in the organizational hierarchy of MLMS, these participants are referred to as one's down line distributors. (5 MLM salespeople are, therefore, expected to sell products directly to end-user retail consumers by means of relationship referrals and word of mouth marketing, but most importantly they are incentivized to recruit others to join the company's distribution chain as fellow salespeople so that these can become down line distributors. (3] [6] [7] Many MLM companies do generate billions of dollars in annual revenue and hundreds of millions of dollars in annual profit. However, the profits of the MLM company are accrued at the detriment to the majority of the company's constituent workforce (the MLM participants). Only some of said profit is then significantly shared with individual participants at the top of the MLM distributorship pyramid. The earnings of those top fau narticinante ie amnhaeizad and chamninnad nt in the MLM with a false anticipation of earning margins which are in reality merely theoretical and statistically improbable. [12] 6:46 Companies that use the MLM business model have been a frequent subject of criticism and lawsuits. Legal claims against MLMS have included, among other things: their similarity to traditional illegal pyramid schemes price fixing of products or services, collusion and racketeering in backroom deals where secret compensation packages are created between the MLM company and a few individual participants, to the detriment of others high initial entry costs (for marketing kit and first products), emphasis on recruitment of others over actual sales (especially sales to non-participants) encouraging if not requiring members to purchase and use the company's products, exploitation of personal relationships as both sales and recruiting targets, than other types of businesses:58] "The vast majority of MLMS are recruiting MLMS, in which participants must recruit aggressively to profit. Based on available data from the companies themselves, the loss rate for recruiting MLMS is approximately 99.9%; i.e., 99.9% of participants lose money after subtracting all expenses, [58) including purchases from the company." In part, this is because encouraging recruits to further "recruit people to compete with [them]"4 leads to "market saturation." [22] It has also been claimed " |(b)y its very nature, MLM is completely devoid of any scientific foundations." 59] So a person can make money simply by selling the product and not recruiting? Which company's compensation plan have you researched individually? 99.25% of the time, they cannot. can't speak for the remaining.75% However, MLM products are also notorious for being terrible and cheap. Including Monat, which has several lawsuits against them for hair loss and scalp burns. What is the latest news on those lawsuits? Notorious for being terrible? You can sit proud ly behind your screen and adamantly believe that what you are doing is right or you can do the research on MLMS. I would be happy to support you with many resources on them. You seem to think I haven't done my research. Obviously not well enough if the Wikipedia page on MLMS and it's information is foreign to you. I'm not going to hold your hand and walk you to the conclusion. I'm not going to sit here and read your automated response customer-service- sounding and patronizing responses. I gave you answers to your questions and several sources for your aid. I was just trying to help you but guess no one can say I didn't try. Pride really gets in the way of some of the best people. I'm sorry if I offended you. And I'm sorry if someone you know got burned Yes, there are terrible experiences out there. I've had nothing but good experiences and I made huge differences in women's lives. Both when I sold Mary Kay and now, I've had the opportunity to connect in such positive ways with so many people I'm sorry this interaction between you and me is not a positive one. I still hold you dear in my heart You know that you are one of my favorite people on earth. I'm sorry as well, and I'm sure it feels amazing to feel like you are helping people. But the fear of ever harming someone over something as trivial as a MLM scheme to bring in extra money is not something I would ever want you, that client, or anybody to ever feel. I want things to be great for you. I want you to have extra spending money or more wiggle room. But I'm scared that you will end up losing your money and start out worse than before. Or have that happen to your client. I will always respect your choices and what you choose to do with Monat, specifically, as I wou ld with anyone. But all I meant by this interaction was to read about MLMS and how they have negatively affected millions of people. I appreciate your care. I'll see you around and I'll have a big fat hug for you. 1 Аa My favorite teacher in high school started selling Monat. I commented on her post a link about hair loss and scalp burns.

I can’t even...: @ 80% l Verizon 11:45 t 10 TShare 21 Award No no no, it's a choice I know I'm straight. But there are always straight impulses going through the human brain and some people have stronger impulses and hormones than others. Gay people are so confused because they know they are gay, but are just empty in side. "its because people like you" you don't even know your own 'people'? I don't fucking know but that's not why the LGBT suicide rates are through the roof. It has nothing to do with prejudice and all to do with the unfulling degenerate lifestyle of an LGB. Statistically lowest marriage rates out of any ethnicity, gender, or anything else. (black LGB, Latino LGB, White LGB). This means that these people are near devoid of happiness and fill it with pleasure (i.e. gay sex). It's reason why so many gays have fetishes. That is the reason why LGB have high suicide rates. When 70%+ of Americans support LGBT and the movement it has nothing to do with people like me and you know why? You are going to brush off anything I say as prejudice and offensive and it is going to have no impact on you. In one week are you going to be thinking about that mean comment from a redditor? No. People like me who speak hard truth don't take space in your minds unless you want us to. Also it is your choice to like girls. I'm straight I could easily go gay for a year and then go back. It's not that hard I could go gay my entire life its a choice. There is no gay gene, you aren't born with gay people just have weaker and stronger hormones than others. Some of them have near neautral levels of estroger so they come out as gay. I can’t even...

It's really hard to tell if women are to write about). My high school(s) didn't have many and all the ones there were actually sexually attracted to men (dm me for details), maybe on avg their libido is a lot lower to the point of negligence but rejected me. I feel as though finding a girlfriend is moreso being in the right place at the right time than physical attraction (unless you are insanely good looking) -in which case anyways-I don't know enough about them to draw any conclusions. -Lastly, and most importantly, I need a girl I still have every right to hate my environment(s). to be my hero and save me from the trenches of loneliness and misogyny. this guy i met on tinder...

Hmmm :/: ephemeralhorror cyberpunk tabletop things decency and personhood being tied to how many so obsessed with why are surgeries you haven't had ephemeralhorror "if you have a prosthetic it takes out a part of your soul" like thanks shadowrun rlyehtaxidermist along the in early cyberpunk, the point was more lines of "if we integrate technology into our bodies we risk becoming dependent upon the people and institutions who control that technology, who would then use that to enrich themselves at our expense" unfortunately that was too anti-corporate for American mainstream culture so as cyberpunk moved out of its niche it became "uhhh it eats your soul I guess" the960writers #this is important context #if you weren't around at the time it is easy to miss but #anti- corporate sentiment was pretty much the lynchpin of cyberpunk until there were movies and games making money off it #it was the 1980s you guys #the entire point was that corporations are evil and technology should be used to circumvent them and escape their control over our lives #and not be used to make ourselves into another product #now that the internet is entirely monetized and corporate it's harder to remember that originally it was synonymous w freedom & independence Yes, exactly.
