feniczoroark: copperbadge: laughingacademy: deliriumcrow: thefingerfuckingfemalefury: minerfromtarn: costlyblood: likeniobe: a whole theatre PLEASE LET THIS BE REAL @thefingerfuckingfemalefury @cblgblog @chiribomb Part of me thinks “Surely this isn’t true” but another part of me is like “This is not the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard” There’s part of me that can’t possibly believe this is real, bit I’ve read parts of the Old Bailey records, and this is … not exactly normal, but not that far from it. People stole lots of shit, and drunk theater people are a very odd lot. It sounds like a Leverage/Drunk History mashup. “You guys, lesh…let’s go steal the Globe. We’re gonna steal the Globe Theatre.” @copperbadge, thoughts? @tzikeh says the theft itself is well known, we just now have evidence Shakespeare participate in it, to which I say, a bounty of wealth for the first person who writes a Shakespearean heist novel. @randomnightlord : feniczoroark: copperbadge: laughingacademy: deliriumcrow: thefingerfuckingfemalefury: minerfromtarn: costlyblood: likeniobe: a whole theatre PLEASE LET THIS BE REAL @thefingerfuckingfemalefury @cblgblog @chiribomb Part of me thinks “Surely this isn’t true” but another part of me is like “This is not the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard” There’s part of me that can’t possibly believe this is real, bit I’ve read parts of the Old Bailey records, and this is … not exactly normal, but not that far from it.

blackwitchmagicwoman: auroraluciferi: askmace: scholarlyapproach: DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO CEREAL!!! Listen in the past the poor have had to improvise cheap food the rich never wanted as a means to survive. And over the many years of innovation made the food taste good until eventually the rich where like: “Oh hay you actually like that garbage? Why on earth would you like it?” Then they try it, love it, start buying it, and then drive the price up so much it becomes a luxury good. They do this and its devastating, the food typically never becomes affordable again. It don’t matter how cheap the foo dis to produce, it doesn’t matter if there is almost no meat on the bone or its super difficult to eat and messy. Once the poor discover how to make some bit of cheap food taste good, the rich take it away via driving the price of it up. THEY DID THIS TO RIBS. Ribs were garage meat. Just look at them, there is hardly any meat on the bone, you have to eat them by hand usually, and they are messy. They where an undesirable cheap source of junk meat. But the poor being the poor made them taste good. (Because they don’t have much to choose from.) The rich discovered the meals the poor made with them and decided they liked ribs too. People discovered they could sell a few ribs to rich people and make way more money then selling lots of ribs to poor people and the price was driven up. DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO CEREAL!!! They did the same to brisket.  You used to be able to get brisket for less than a dollar a pound, which meant you could get a twenty pound brisket fairly cheaply.  And then you smoked it, sliced it, and had meat for weeks if not a full month.  And it was tasty.  I grew up eating brisket at least once a month because my family could afford it. It was a cheap meat because no rich person looks at the dangly part of the neck of a cow and goes ‘ooh, that looks tasty!’. But then Food Network started showcasing things like barbecued brisket.  Rich people started showing up at places that weren’t just Rib Crib to get their barbeque.  And the price of brisket went up.  A lot. I regularly see it for over five dollars a pound in stores now.  And while yeah, that might not seem like a lot when you’re talking only a pound or two of meat, brisket is normally sold in ten to twenty pound sizes.  It’s become completely unaffordable to the people that made it delicious. Sushi used to be really cheap, too, until it became ‘trendy’.  Guess why you’re now paying twelve dollars for your order of California rolls?  Because rich people discovered something that poor people had been eating for ages. Noticed the prices of fajita meat, chicken thighs, or ham hocks has gone up recently?  You guessed it.  Rich people are taking our food and now we’re scrambling to afford the things that we grew up eating. Lobster is a perfect example of this phenomenon. For hundreds of years, lobster was regarded as a sort of insect larvae from the depth of the sea. It had zero appeal as a “luxury food” until people living in NY and Boston developed a taste for it. Before the 19th century, it was considered a “poverty food” or used as fertilizer and bait - some household servants specified in employment agreements that they would not eat lobster more than twice a week.It was also commonly served at prisons, which tells you something about prison food. Only by cleverly marketing lobster as an indulgence for the privileged made it cost so much. It became a vehicle for enormous profit spawning a multi-billion dollar global industry in the process. This mythical affection for lobster flesh - not its practical value in terms of taste, nutrition, or any other reasonable consideration - drives its value. LMAO.

Offer to let this person keep standing on your porch while you call a mechanic or tow service (If they’re posing as victims of violence, like in a similar scam, same offer but say you’re calling the cops) A person in actual distress will be assisted and thankful. A scammer will storm off.   ^^^^^ This right here. Please don’t let random assholes keep your from helping people who really need it. Keep yourself safe without abandoning everyone else. : nikki @vianikki DUDE!! This fucking woman came to my house and asked me to come outside and help her out with her broken car. She was crying and sobbing. My mom wanted to go outside and help, but thank the fucking lord I trusted my intuition and said no. Be careful EVERYONE! This happened in FV 12:54 il LTE Mike Duarte < Sunday at 8:11 PM Don't open the door if you see this lady!!! It was posted on the Ring app that she asked for help pushing her broken down truck at 3am. Home owner wisely said no and turned off the lights. He then watched the woman go back to her truck and 2 men got in with her and they drove away. Another person said they saw her on the side of the road with her hood up. They stopped to ask if she needed assistance and saw two men come out of the bushes...they quickly drove away before anything bad could happen..BE CAREFUL PEOPLE!!! Write a comment... GIF (:) II nikki @vianikkii for those who are asking, this happened in Fountain Valley (OC area). Please focus on this issue and beware of your surroundings rather than sending me dick pics.
