Anaconda, Fire, and The Worst: able. T% last t ship, she was or fire. A blackened hull sinking beneath the waves We had a deal, Jack contracted you to deliver cargo on my behalf, you chose to liberate it People aren't cargo, mate Andhyou incurred a heavy debt to raise her up again, didn't you? Jack was employed into service for the East India Trading Company and was given command of the Wicked Wench. However, after he set free a cargo of slaves, his employer, Cutler Beckett, had Jack branded as a pirate and the Wench set aflame and sunk. After failing to rescue the Wench, Sparrow struck a bargain with the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones, to resurrect his beloved vessel. Jones returned the ship to Jack in near perfect condition except for the permanently charred hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl (via) Jack Sparrow just got way cooler. BABE Yo, this is why Norrington said he's the worst pirate I've ever heard of" and then Jack followed it up with, "But you have heard of me." Because Jack was branded a Pirate because he freed people rather than stealing anything. So Norrington, with his sense of duty, knows that Jack has been branded a criminal for actively not being a terrible human being. Norrington is torn between his duty as a naval officer and knowing that Jack is right He freed exactly 100 people, that's why his debt to Jones was 100 souls. Davy has a sick sense of irony after all. Jack freed 100 souls and as a consequence his ship got sunk. Now his ship has been raised and as a consequence, he has to enslave 100 souls. This explains his reluctance to actually pay back the debt. VIA THEMETAPICTURE.COM you should probably go to TheMetaPicture.com srsfunny:Jack Sparrow Just Got Way Cooler

Beautiful, Facts, and Memes: Mysterious Photos Of Unexplainably 'Crooked Forest' lin Poland Sometimes the strangest sights are found in nature. In this case, 400 pine trees in the northwest of Poland appear to be almost normal, but they are not. If you look at the base of these trees, you might feel like you’ve just entered a strange mystical fairy tale. All of the trees have the same northward 90-degree bend at the base of their limb. Known as the “Crooked Forest,” this unique site remains an unexplained mystery. Every tree in the Crooked Forest has the same haunting bend, but despite bent beginnings, all of the trees have grown to be tall and seemingly unhampered by their C shape curves. Some experts believe that the trees grew like this because they incurred some sort of damage to the tip and along some side branches. Trees are resilient, and so they continued to thrive, relying on the one branch they had left to take over complete function and grow upwards. Whatever damage occurred to one tree must have happened to them all because they remain uniform in deformity. The Crooked Forest is around 80 years old. It is estimated that the damage that made them look how they do today occurred when the trees were about 7 years old. This would have been before the Second World War reached Poland. Which helps to explain the most popular theory about how the trees came to be crooked. As the story goes, in 1930 a group of farmers planted these trees, intentionally damaging the base in order to create some sort of product, perhaps uniquely shaped furniture. The world may never know if it’s true because the farmers were unable to finish their work after the invasion on Poland during World War II dismantled their plans. ⇒Love ❤️, flow 💬, serve ✨⇐ . . . . . . . . . . . . . nature habitat geyser science amazing facts video natural italy sand wow instatag facts instafun instavideo videos spiritual beautiful london amazingfact memes mindblown fact magic insta sun trees tree poland Credits: 📷 Kilian Schönberger

Family, Lawyer, and Memes: Nelly Threatens Legal Action Against Rape Accuser for False Accusations @balleralert PROPERTYOF DERRTY ENT Nelly Threatens Legal Action Against Rape Accuser for False Accusations- blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although Nelly’s rape case has been dismissed, the rapper is not finished with it. In fact, according to TMZ, the rapper is considering legal action against the accuser for false accusations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Earlier this week, prosecutors dropped the case against Nelly because the accuser refused to cooperate. According to the woman’s lawyer, the alleged victim felt that she would never be able to stand up against his celebrity status and the public pressure. As a result, she refused to move forward with the case. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Initially, officials tried to proceed with the case without the victim’s cooperation, but their efforts failed, ultimately forcing prosecutors to toss the case. Now that Nelly is in the clear, he is considering legal action against the victim, as his lawyer says he “has suffered very real damage to his reputation.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “He has incurred an economic loss and painfully has watched his family suffer. As a result Nelly is planning to proceed with litigation as the first step in restoring his reputation,” the attorney said, adding that “This type of reckless false allegation cannot be tolerated as it is an affront to the real survivors of sexual assault.”

Community, Facts, and Hillary Clinton: Mikel Jollett @Mikel_Jollett Number of people who go bankrupt every year bc of medical bills: Britain: 0 France:O Japan: 0 Germany: 0 Canada: 0 USA: 643,000 liberalsarecool:Talk about obstruction. What if Republicans really cared about health care. During my stint with my economics degree I did research on homelessness. A lot of temporary homelessness is caused by something economist call ‘income shocks”, in other words unforeseen costs that are incurred that break your bank so to speak.  57% of Americans cant even afford an unexpected price tag of $500 and often non-chronic homelessness is caused by simply not being able to afford a car accident or a medical expense or a relatively small expense that wasn’t planned for. The reason why I mention this and mention homelessness is because it is incredibly sad that in this country, you can literally die on the streets if you can’t afford a medical bill, yet our neighbors in Canada treat their citizens with cancer, auto immune disorders, MS, Aids/HIV etc. virtually for free. Another thing that infuriates me is that even Democrats and their leadership and even Hillary Clinton who ran last year as a “progressive” called Universal Healthcare and Bernie’s single payer plan “pie in the sky” despite the fact that these plans work, are less expensive, and give better health outcomes than our system- also despite the fact that the majority of Americans and the majority of Democrats want universal healthcare.  We need to fight for Universal Healthcare now and until we get it. People’s lives and purses depend on it. The tumblr community should do more to push this. THIS  is a major social justice issue and one that can be easily won since the facts, science, and economics or on our side.  We need this, and we need it now.

Being Alone, The Onion, and Tumblr: rushpartyofcanada: Justin Trudeau Unveils Plan To Meet Healthcare Needs Of Canada’s Aging Prog Rockers   OTTAWA—Saying it was only right to give back to those who had done so much for their country, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau unveiled a plan Thursday that would provide for the healthcare needs of the nation’s aging prog rockers.   Groups from Rush to Triumph to Harmonium are valued members of our society, and it’s our duty to ensure that they’re healthy enough to tour throughout their golden years,” said Trudeau at a press conference, explaining that a new bill slightly raising sales taxes would fully fund coverage for the increased expenses incurred by the nation’s elderly prog-rock vocalists, guitarists, and mellotron players. “While prog rockers represent over 5 percent of Canada’s GDP, they require an increasing amount of our healthcare funds, with The Guess Who and Voivod accounting for millions of dollars in annual medical spending alone. As band members get older and have trouble standing for the duration of 19-minute intros, remembering all the lyrics to their fantasy concept albums, or simply getting around a 40-piece drum kit, we owe it to them to do all we can.”   Trudeau’s plan has reportedly spurred calls for similar legislation in Norway, where citizens will increasingly have to contend with significant healthcare expenditures for their large and rapidly aging black metal population.  SOURCE: The Onion

America, Drugs, and Facebook: THE AVERAGE HIP REPLACEMENT USA SPAIN $40,364 $7,371 THAT MEANS I CAN LITERALLY FLY TO SPAIN, LIVE IN MADRID FOR2 YEARS, LEARN SPANISH, RUN WITH THE BULLS, GET TRAMPLED, GET MY HIP REPLACED AGAIN, AND FLY HOME FOR LESS THAN THE COST OF A HIP REPLACEMENT IN THE US. JOSH SUNDQUIST SHARE IF YOU WANT UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE IN THE U.S. <p><a href="http://libertybill.tumblr.com/post/149098105202/cuzyouwanttotakemypicture-yep-from-wacthe" class="tumblr_blog">libertybill</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://cuzyouwanttotakemypicture.tumblr.com/post/149049455211">cuzyouwanttotakemypicture</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>Yep</p> </blockquote> <p><a href="https://www.facebook.com/WeAreCapitalists/photos/a.195735437264673.1073741832.157541337750750/361763283995220/">From WAC</a></p><h2>THE MISLEADING CLAIM: </h2><p> “The average hip replacement in the USA costs $40,364. In Spain, it costs $7,371.“</p><h2> The Reality:</h2><p> First, note that Spain has a single-payer health care system run by the government. Their system requires, by law, that the state provide healthcare at “no out-of-pocket” cost to the individual. (except for prescription drugs.) Thus, costs are incurred by taxpayers. </p><p> One reason the cost of surgery is different between the two countries? Incomes are lower in Spain than they are in the U.S. This means the labor component that factors into your hip replacement is severely reduced.</p><p> The Median salary of an Orthopedic surgeon in Spain, for instance, is only $64,152 a year. The same position pays about $432,552 a year in the U.S.</p><p> The labor component for surgery in America is therefore roughly 6.75 times greater than it is in Spain. If one were to adjust the cost of a hip replacement surgery in Spain by accounting for what the surgeon SHOULD be getting paid, we’d see a final price much closer to what’s charged in America. </p><p> WHAT’S THE COST RELATIVE TO MEDIAN INCOME?</p><p> Spain’s Median Household Annual Income, adjusted for purchasing parity, was $17,191 in 2011.<br/> The United States’ Median Household Annual Income, on the other hand, was $50,054 in 2011.</p><p> If the average cost of a hip replacement in Spain is $7,371, that’s roughly 43% of that country’s median household income. Note, that price is billed to the taxpayer. As we’ll demonstrate however, in America, the cost is less burdensome. </p><p> Now, there is no such thing as an “un-insured” price for medical care in Spain, since everyone is insured via the government. Therefore, Spain’s cost must be compared to what INSURED individuals are charged in America. The Average Cost of the same hip replacement surgery in the U.S. is $39,299 (per our sources). This would represent a whopping 78% of median household income IF - and only if - people actually paid it, but they don’t. Most of the cost is billed to private insurance companies, which sustain themselves via profitable investments mitigating the need to profit directly off of consumers. Only about $3,000 is ever billed to an insured individual. That’s around 6% of median household income. </p><p> One might point out that while the costs are mostly incurred by private insurers in America, those insurers merely disperse such costs amongst their customers not unlike the Spanish government passing costs onto taxpayers. This is a fair critique, and for the sake of argument, we can attempt to adjust for that. </p><p> For 2011, premiums for employer-sponsored family-health coverage were roughly $15,500. (Paid largely by the employer) On average, workers, however, only paid about $4300 of that. For single (non-family) coverage, workers paid even less, with an average contribution of only about $950. [x] If we were to include one year’s worth of insurance premium contributions with the cost of this surgery, the cost in America would still only range from $3950 - $7300. That only represents 7.9% - 14.5% of our 2011 median household income, which is significantly less than Spain’s 43%. In fact, for the burden of a U.S. family to match that of Spain, we’d have to include, not only the out-of-pocket expense from the surgery, but also over 4 years of health insurance contributions. For individual coverage, we’d have to include 19.5 years of health insurance contributions! Luckily, our burden isn’t 43% of our median household income. </p><h2> WHAT’S THE CONCLUSION?</h2><p> Yes, the absolute cost is lower in Spain than it is in America, but that cost represents a burden far greater than what we experience in the U.S. Meanwhile, in the United States, depending on how you count it, people only pay an amount equivalent to about 6%, 7.9%, or 14.5% what they earn annually. When Spain’s burden is 43%, which system sounds less burdensome to YOU?<br/> —————————-<br/> Sources: <br/><a href="http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.salaryexplorer.com%2Fsalary-survey.php%3Fjob%3D994%26jobtype%3D3%26gender%3Dm%26loctype%3D1%26loc%3D203&amp;h=JAQFvcvTOAQH7ZRfnwmS7NNEEu5HJUfydJQymIdu_t68lMg&amp;enc=AZPZyj0NReNb807keEKuTPW5Zc8ONlHriOBnqNjp_4pYOHA-Z4LNhac6xVepItYw1t2KPkJ9IHt6FFhn452_o29emowg4G2sX8LziIZCnJxlYMvjljOqi2xAcBvO2n67lrcMNaBS3BhRT4-S9adhoftpSDiUNCV5QAYq42UoiGwYp9-16owUA9UF6eEjZYunhPs&amp;s=1" rel="nofollow">http://www.salaryexplorer.com/salary-survey.php…</a></p><p> <a href="http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.npr.org%2Ftemplates%2Fstory%2Fstory.php%3FstoryId%3D112014770&amp;h=LAQEsg9VXAQFwotpcEQoZZK3NRwUun6wL2bDTRa5aBqd6vg&amp;enc=AZPCCdAPstZvalT4mAtoA46dEyUog5lwvXO4M0L4Oer3XGb6nPoovWD6IcujzshuZcmY-oJtDZg9x26JYmJHE7KnYwhqDefoFzLL2bFDHW1P91r2_fBqyuDAvKSQtYyK6VYcWd-o-Sc2nB0o5ZzyUekjnyPJEVtXZm2tntpyVjNccK8hDzKMtdR-dsWAVYbXB3Y&amp;s=1" rel="nofollow">http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php…</a></p><p> <a href="http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ine.es%2Fen%2Fdaco%2Fdaco42%2Fetcl%2Fetcl0412_en.pdf&amp;h=OAQFGXKQPAQFwLOZpsxTntZ4lwKiqfQkh_uc5yobV6le0iA&amp;enc=AZMTgp-PsHVSHlhvH3WIDCJkEoutGi3xv4F-sz_s1S1C2PG9vVYS9Ck3iT-Rj2LBWv-q2aJlYNY4wW7aiWIHqD5OJ0eq3erC6i1er92ZGLYgbmqzOjBhU2SUP1opihR4zhqlKzRo3DCI5ce32QRfH6OIvUa8zr8IdTr1wmdzDs9YjyQtTD0JfRf45s3k1Y7XYy4&amp;s=1" rel="nofollow">http://www.ine.es/en/daco/daco42/etcl/etcl0412_en.pdf</a></p><p> <a href="http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fstats.oecd.org%2FIndex.aspx%3FDataSetCode%3DIDD&amp;h=cAQGSs6HyAQGkxsdSUp97tqc-deK1iQtU-A6Wqng-u8U0Rg&amp;enc=AZPGImFXgUez1viYoTMZGnhZvfozAfQUDpXN6aaMKD1tKwZ72SjKwc8hzQegbD76-J8ra8NOTQYunqDa98BxhRfPR8CFgYvWj4TrTvqA4Lf_xk-t9hUV3AMiZONtiV2mzOurb3w9f0Gp1VRiVa9SHRuO39JAzDANVYD0d_UsdZ5Fmhi0Tn4jIuTK--l5HnlJDYU&amp;s=1" rel="nofollow">http://stats.oecd.org/Index.aspx?DataSetCode=IDD</a></p><p> <a href="http://health.costhelper.com/hip-replacement.htmlanted=all&amp;_r=0" rel="nofollow">http://health.costhelper.com/hip-replacement.htmlanted=all&amp;…</a></p><p> <a href="http://www.justlanded.com/english/Spain/Articles/Jobs/Doctors" rel="nofollow">http://www.justlanded.com/engli…/Spain/Articles/Jobs/Doctors</a></p><p> [x] (*2011 figures were approximated.

Beautiful, Fashion, and Friends: I read this today and thought it was so fitting A customer wanted to purchase a beautiful Wire Wrap Bracelet and spotted an artist who did absolutely amazing work, but she charged a good price too The customer thought that the artist's price was way too high so she approached the artist and in quite a brusk fashion stated " want to buy a Bracelet from you, but I think you charge too much." The artist was a little taken aback but replied, "Ok, how much do you think I should charge?" The customer replied "I think you should charge "X" much, because the wire will cost this much, and the clasp this much, and the cabochon this much. I even factored in the price of your pliers." The final price the customer had calculated was a lot cheaper than the artist's original price, but she said "Ok, deal. You will get your goods in a week" The customer was very pleased with herself and can't resist telling all her friends what a fabulous deal she has negotiated and how smart she is, and that in a week she will have her gorgeous Bracelet A week later her parcel arrives in a lovely packaged box. She opens it and inside is Wire, a Clasp, a Cabochon, and 2 sets of Pliers. Angrily she contacts the artist asking "How could you do this to me? I asked you for a Bracelet and you sent me a box of Wire, a Clasp, a Cabochon and 2 sets of Pliers?!?!" The artist quietly replies "My dear, you got exactly what you paid for, if you think there is something missing, then you will need to pay for it." Moral of the story, when you buy handmade you are not just buying the materials you are buying the artist's, time, effort, love and dedication that goes into making your pieces protowilson: wahrsager: meeko-fitz: nostopdasgay: chantdsyrinx: THIS whoomp there it is artists are not just little art robots, who’da thunk it. THIS THIS THIS THIS People don’t realise there’s a cost incurred that allows for all the years that artist worked on their skills to improve, that compensated for the times they had to work two or more shitty jobs just to cover the most basic bills, that acknowledges that what they do represents a unique point of view and displays their own personal style. Art is more than the sum of its materials, and so is an artist. When you try to talk an artist down in price, you’re being insulting. THISS
