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.

But wont somebody think of the children?: kids, the animal world &gender This morning, my 5yo asked us if his new boy-kitten would grow up to be a daddy cat. We said that no, he wouldn't, and were about to explain that this is because the kitten is desexed when my son said, "Oh, that's right - because if you don't grow up to be a mummy or a daddy, then you're not a boy or a girl you're just a person! It turns out, he's been lowkey assuming that there are three grown-up genders: mummy, daddy, and adult, such that anyone who isn't a parent is, in some sense, nonbinary. We explained that, while he's right in thinking there are people who aren't boys or girls, your adult gender isn't determined by whether or not you have a kid, and used examples of people we know as proof. He accepted this with a nod, then went off to play with the kitten, We had a related conversation at bedtime last week, when the "story" he'd chosen was a book of facts about Australian animals. One of the entries we read was about the barramundi fish, which are all male as babies and only turn female during spawning season. This prompted him to ask if human boys could turn into girls, too, and while he was a bit too sleepy for a detailed conversation, I said something along the lines of, "yes, there are some people who look like boys when they're little, but who realise they're girls and change when they get older." He accepted that, too, and then we read another entry about a particular type of bat. These are only two small examples, but it's endlessly fascinating to me to watch how kids are trying to figure out what gender is and what it means from the world around them. There have been times when my son has come home saying that pink is for girls, because that's what he heard at school, and so we have a conversation about how colours are for everyone. The point is not only that children absorb what's going on around them and try to process it through an individual lens, but that how adults answer their questions plays a massive role in comprehension, too. Don't tell kids they're silly for asking these sorts of questions or act as if the truth is obvious: they're not, and it really isn't. But wont somebody think of the children?

First you want to play any Hardcore gamemode. This is KEY to get any camo fast and easy.The hardest part about getting Gold is to get 100 headshots which is very hard.In Hardcore, one shot to the head is one shot kill so it's much easier and faster to get headshots. I personally like Hardcore Free for All because the spawns are messed up so you spawn near enemies and get the headshot faster. If you're really grinding for these camos, you might get gold on maybe 2 guns in one day! Now remember, it does take time so you can't get all diamond in like one week. But the best part is when you try to get these camo's, you get so much XP even if you're not trying!: would you answer? Remind Me Message First you want to play any Hardcore gamemode.

Happy FathersDay Gothamites! Today it is fitting to discuss father figures within the Batman mythology, the first being Thomas Wayne (cover panel to Batman (Vol 3) 22 by Jason Fabok)! Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger and first appearing in Detective Comics (Vol 1) 33 from 1939, Thomas Wayne was a successful surgeon and respected patron of Gotham City, keeping alive the Wayne family name with the ownership of Wayne Manor and head of Wayne Enterprises. Married to socialite and philanthropist Martha Wayne, they had a son, Bruce, and at his young age, he faced Thomas and Martha's untimely death at the gun of mugger Joe Chill. Although established 78 years ago that his death would spawn the shadowy vigilante of Gotham City, the character of Thomas Wayne represented more than just that sole purpose. Thomas Wayne is shown as an influence past his tragic death in Finger's Detective Comics (Vol 1) 235 from September 1956 in "The First Batman" (panel 2) when Thomas' 'Bat-Man' costume inspires Bruce to track down Lew Moxon, the man who hired Joe Chill to kill his parents. As this classic tale was retold in Len Wein and Jim Aparo's "The Untold Legend of the Batman" from 1980 (panel 3), more modern stories told of Thomas as a brilliant surgeon aiding crime master Carmine Falcon in Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's 13 arc epic "Batman: The Long Halloween" from 1997 (panel 4) and as a guide to Bruce in spirit. Thomas' most thrilling role has been as the Batman, established in Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert 2011 arc "Flashpoint" and Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso's 3 issue side storyline "Batman: Knight of Vengeance" (panel 5). In this alternate timeline, Bruce is murdered in front of Thomas and Martha Wayne, driving Thomas into the lethal and vengeful Batman and Martha going insane and taking up the persona of The Joker. As a large part of New 52's Convergence arc (panel 6 by Ethan Van Sciver, Earth 2 (Vol 1) 17) and bringing words of wisdom to his son Bruce as Batman in DC Rebirth (panel 7 variant cover by Tim Sale, panel 8 and 9 from Batman (Vol 3) 22), Thomas Wayne proves to still be an important part of Batman's amazing history. ✌🏼💙🦇: w,p Happy FathersDay Gothamites!
