I used to see things like the fork and think “that’s fuckin’ lazy” or that product that holds a gallon and you just tip it and pour. But then I started working around the disabled and impaired and found out that these products aren’t meant for lazy people, they’re meant for people who need help.  So maybe next time you see something, instead of thinking “Wow, are people that lazy?” just be grateful that you’re able to do the things you do every day and take for granted, like being able to feed yourself and wipe your own ass because you have enough coordination and bendy joints to do it.  This isn’t specualtion either; the majority of products from commericals that we think are funny or silly are autally MEANT for hte disabled.But they are marketed towards the abled because the disabled aren’t considered a viable enough demographic on their own. the Snuggie for example? Created for wheelchair users. This is actually really nifty. oh my god of course the snuggie was for wheelchair users The fact that anyone buys these products besides disabled people drastically lowers the price of them. These would normally cost hundreds if not thousands if dollars. Because if spent time and money creating it, the company wants to get more than that back. And they can’t do that if they sell and market these primarily to disabled people for $20-$40 a piece or whatever. They’d lose money on production. If they can sell hundreds of them to everyone, they can lower the price drastically and therefore disabled people don’t die while trying to scrape up the money to buy these things and be a bit more independent. I never considered that last part and that’s actually genius Like yeah, a handful of people ARE that lazy. But those are the people who use these products even though they don’t need them and thus allow the price to be lower for those who DO. So honestly in this case good bless the lazy and those prone to gimmicks because they are invaluable to the elderly and disabled in this sense. @thebibliosphere Look! People learning about disability and why to be kind! The normalization of disability aids needs to be a thing precisely so they can cost less. : SENORGİF/COM thebibliosphere: alwaysatomicconniseur: ruffboijuliaburnsides: mistersaturn123: a-can-of-mountain-jew: dragonenby: tabbitcha: lemonade-cat: talkearlietome: cartel: hotboysofficial: the future is now are people that lazy to need this While I’m sure there are people too lazy to spin a fork, keep in mind people like this person who may be suffering from arthritis or a neurological disease or nerve damage or a thousand other conditions that might impair their ability to do things as simple as spin a fork to eat spaghetti.  These are used with people who can’t grip well:  This is for Parkinsons’s:  For people who can’t even bend their joints:  Here’s a product that guides your hand from your plate to your mouth  This one holds a sandwich  Like I get it.

The Purge: Maybe we are good people: hipsterkittypostingteenybopper Re: Purge. If everything was legal for like twenty-four hours I'd start a communal garden. This is barely even hyperbole. I would legit start a communal garden with whoever wanted to join me. I think that would be fucking dope. derinthemadscientist Rewrite of The Purge where, for 24 hours, people hurriedly complete all those renovations and projects that the council forbids. Helen, leader of the PTA, laughs maniacally as she tears grass from her lawn with a pitchfork, her thirteen- year-old daughter Emily's arms red with mud as she wades through the carnage, planting thyme. Jack and Mitch have left their friendly smiles behind at the RSL; today their faces show only grim determination as they methodically shovel gravel into potholes and pour bitumen. The local biker gang, gathered on the corner, are the most rambunctious of the mischief-makers, whooping and hollering as nail guns are driven into plywood, assembling miniature by-the-road shelters for the homeless to rest on cold nights. Their noise covers the sounds of Katy and Sam moving from street to street with their trolleys, picking up unsold or unwanted food from houses and restaurants to give to the hungry without fear of taxation or food safety reprisals. They're young, and still scared of being caught But there's no one to catch them. Not tonight dreamerinsilico ...You know you live in a dystopian capitalist hellscape when.... The Purge: Maybe we are good people

Makes a lot more sense now: thatscorpionbitch Like, 90% of infomercial style products were designed by/for disabled people, but you wouldn't know that, because there is no viable market for them. THey have to be marketted and sold to abled people just so that any money can be made of off them and so the people who actually need them will have access. I think snuggies are the one example almest everyone knows. They were invented for wheelchair users (Do you have any idea how hard it is to get a coat on and off of someone in a wheelchair? Cause it's PRETTY FUCKIN HARD.) But now everyone just acts like they're some quirky, white people thing- and not A PRODUCT DESIGNED TO MAKE PEOPLES DAY TO DAY LIVES 10000X EASIER. But if at any point you were to take your head out of your own ass and go "Hey who would a product like this benefit," that would be really cool swamp-spirit This makes informational make so much sense now Like... of course there's no reason for that guy to knock over that bowl of chips However, the person it was actually designed for has constant hand tremors that would make this pretty rad, but since we don't want to show that in a commercial, here's an able bodied guy who can't remember how gravity works. Shit. Those commercials suddenly get a lot less funny when you realize it's pretty much just people ineptly trying to mimic disability xtremecaffeine Or like the thing for the eggs? Like, oh, it cracks eggs perfectly, you only need one hand? IT WAS DESIGNED FOR PEOPLE WHO ONLY HAVE THE USE OF ONE HAND Or the juice bottle pourer? For people who're TOO LAZY TO POUR THEIR OWN JUICE? Or FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIFFICULTY BEARING WEIGHT IN THE HANDS silenceofthecam It's amazing how with just a few words by a few people, my whole perspective on something can shift entirely fumblingcuriosities I feel so ignorant for never having realized this before Makes a lot more sense now

queerenbian: rawr0609: simplytryingnottocry: afunnyfeminist: commanderoswald: weavemama: weavemama: IMPORTANT INFO FOR WHAT’S CURRENTLY HAPPENING IN TRUMP’S AMERICA: a lot of unwarranted raids are happening across the U.S right now. The latest states that have been targeted by this massive sweep is California, Arizona, Texas, and now Georgia. Over 100 people have been detained, most likely without a warrant. And before someone says “they’re just keeping the criminals out!1!”, lawyers who were able to consult some of the people detained did not have a criminal record. There have also been reports of officers trailing kids walking home from school to lead to their parents.  These officers DO NOT. HAVE. THE RIGHT. TO DETAIN PEOPLE. WITHOUT. A WARRANT.   KNOW YOUR RIGHTS AND DON’T FORGET TO #RESIST Here’s some more info on what’s happening in Georgia  I told you the Muslims were the first step. They’re coming after Latinos with no criminal records in their own homes now. Three minutes from my house they detained over 100 people yesterday and literally dragged them out of their houses. They are pulling drivers over on the streets asking for papers. They are following school buses home and arresting parents when they meet the children at the stops. They’re not releasing the names of anyone they have apprehended. They’re not answering any questions from journalists/CHIRLA/the public or giving reasons as to why they’re detaining people without access to immigration attorneys. ICE has gone rogue and it seems to be in retaliation for the 9th circuit ruling against the Muslim Ban. It was clear that the Justice Department was losing during arguments on Tuesday and about 24 hours later random raids all across the country started happening? Not a coincidence. Meanwhile on Twitter, Republicans are challenging each other to see who can report more “illegal looking people” to the ICE tip line. There are accounts proudly boasting their report tallies and encouraging more to follow suit. Others are saying they reported their neighbors or friends of friends.

Seek McCartney, a Chinese-French production, stars pop star Han Geng alongside actor Jérémie Elkaim, and recieved the greenlight after a year of deliberation. In response to the news, Director Wang Chao called it "a small step for the regulator and a big step for filmmakers. It was not easy, but was delightful." Earlier this year, another film featuring a same-sex kiss, The Dead End, was also approved. Seek McCartney will be the first mainstream Chinese release for a gay-driven film.
