Here’s the big thing about it that might scandalize Americans even more so than the idea of free housing: you don’t have to do anything to “deserve it.” Most countries use what’s called “the staircase model” – you start by being in shelter, then maybe a halfway house, then permanent housing. You can “move up” by going through rehab or getting a job or accessing other services. The idea is that housing is something you get as a reward for good behavior, not something you get by right.But with the housing first model, you get the house first, and then deal with everything else. It’s a lot easier to stop using drugs and alcohol when you have other ways to pass the time and aren’t under constant stress. It’s a lot easier to get a job when you have an address to put on your applications. It’s a lot easier to treat mental illness when you’re in a safe place that doesn’t add to your fear and pain. But if your mentality is that housing is something only the morally pure and socially acceptable deserve, and the only way to get it is for people to jump through hoops to prove their goodness, then of course you’re going to hate this model.

Android, Apple, and Friends: when an android user drops their phone & the battery pops out This is the most ghetto sh*t I've ever seen in my life. thisisnotjuli: officially-william-dudley-pelley: the-true-todd-howard: officially-william-dudley-pelley: the-true-todd-howard: officially-william-dudley-pelley: the-true-todd-howard: officially-william-dudley-pelley: the-true-todd-howard: superpagangirl: Oh man a battery that comes out that means it can be replaced thats so shit, ya know the ability to change the battery when it barely holds charge just ugh i love phones that break when the wind changes that are a decade behind specs wise Id rather a phone where the battery pops out then a phone that’s shatters at a tap Or a phone thats not worth £50 that costs £400 Man iPhone ain’t worth it Yea no shit a fuckin £1000 phone that is glass all over and features animated emojis Look at me I’m an iPhone user..whoops my phone is in shards but it’s worth it Apple device user: i dropped it and it broke into piecesAndroid user: i fuckin tossed my phone at a wall and it was ok Apple user: so I rubbed my phone with my shirt and it’s crackedAndroid user: no big deal just a scratch after I hit mine with a car you guys don’t realise how real this shit is; I’ve seen like 5 shattered screens in androids phones in my hole life and like 2 of them where just a tiny thing. you know how many shattered iPhone screens I’ve seen? more than I can count. I think it’s easier to count my friends who didn’t shatter their iPhone in the first five months than the other way around. and this is just talking bout the screens don’t get me started on the actual phone

Advice, Bad, and Beautiful: HISTORY h What Greek goddess is known for being the most beautiful? zabchan: the-musical-cc: angelrin89: true-king-of-monsters: luxy-lightning: thestrangedaysofkrei: knitmeapony: 28weekslaterhater: knitmeapony: ravenclawslibrary: smurflewis: DONT ASK ME THIS, THIS IS HOW THE TROJAN WAR STARTED, I DONT WANT THIS MAN Right away, Aphrodite popped into my head. And then I’m just like, “DAMMIT, DID YOU LEARN NOTHING FROM PARIS? YOU ARE AN EMBARRASSMENT, AND NOW ALL THE TROJANS ARE DEAD. I HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY.” If you are ever actually in this situation, pro-tip: name Persephone.  Half the goddesses will be too surprised to smite you immediately and while Hades won’t do you any favors he may at least high-five you while your on your way down. Another tip: name Mesperyian. Not only will you shock everyone, including her (since Aphrodite was a jealous ho who burnt half her face off), but you’ll win Hades’ favour. As his most beloved daughter, anything that praises her will make you a kind human to her, an okay human to him, and a genuinely good person to anyone else. I heartily endorse this alternative answer. I love how all of this advice leads to “please Hades at all costs.” #because Hades really wasn’t that bad No shit. The only real villain that caused so many problems was Zeus’ Thunder Cock and that thing has been in Olympus-knows-what.  ZUES’S THUNDER COCK To be fair, Poseidon was like the greek mythology personification of the phrase ‘BITCH, FIGHT ME’ reblogging for BROseidon and FIGHT ME
