Apparently, Confused, and Family: Rock Apparently Factors Into Girlfriend's Shower Routine NEWS Local Relationships ISSUE 49-29 Jul 16, 2013 23 Jacob Ferris, 25, has no idea what his girlfriend Sarah uses this rock in her shower for rubitrightintomyeyes: theonion: Rock Apparently Factors Into Girlfriend’s Shower Routine SEATTLE—Saying he was confused about the full extent of its purpose as well as its overall benefit, local man Jacob Ferris, 25, nonetheless surmised today that the oblong rock located in girlfriend Sarah Milstein’s shower caddy must somehow factor into her bathing routine, sources confirmed. “I guess at some point while she’s showering, she rubs a rock on her body,” said Ferris, expressing what he claimed was “the only possible conclusion” about the light-gray rock in his girlfriend’s bathroom. “I mean, it looks sort of nice, so she could just have it there for decoration or something. But it’s usually right near all the other soaps and her loofah, so I think it’s probably something she actually uses while under the water.” “I really don’t know how it all works,” Ferris added. “All I know is that in between Sarah getting into the shower and getting out, there’s a rock involved.” Ferris, who said he was unable to determine exactly when in the showering process the rock first comes into play, told reporters he is equally clueless about what part of the body the rock is used on. In addition, Ferris said he occasionally inspects the roughly 3-ounce object when he’s in Milstein’s shower, and told reporters that the rock is nearly always wet and is occasionally moved to slightly different spots within the bathtub, leading him to believe that his girlfriend uses it fairly regularly. He also noted his girlfriend’s bathing time never seems particularly longer than the average person’s considering she has added a rock into the mix. Ferris added that all attempts to incorporate the rock into his own shower routine have ultimately been unsuccessful. “I tried rubbing it on my skin once, and it hurt,” Ferris said, concluding that pouring soap and water directly onto the rock neither made it softer nor easier on his skin. “I could maybe see how it could get some dirt off of your body, but it seems too painful to work. Her skin usually looks nice though, so maybe I’m wrong.” “There is a chance it could be a hair thing,” Ferris continued. “Maybe she rubs the rock in her hair? I don’t know.” Ferris confirmed he has considered numerous reasons for why his girlfriend uses the rock in the shower, including that she has some type of skin condition, that the rock is some sort of weird tradition her family has, or that everyone uses rocks in the shower and he has been out of the loop the entire time. “It could be for cleaning the bathtub,” said Ferris, adding he once suspected the rock was a device for making the bathroom smell nice, but then noticed it had no discernible smell whatsoever. “Like every few weekends she scrubs the tub with this rock? I guess I could see Sarah doing that.” While Ferris said he is mostly certain that the rock was initially purchased at a home goods store of some kind, he was not able to completely rule out the possibility it was just a rock that his girlfriend found on the ground and decided to put in her shower. “I wonder if I should put a rock in my shower for when she’s over here,” said Ferris, who said he once tried to locate a rock at a Bed Bath Beyond, but left after not wanting to walk up to a sales clerk and ask them where they kept their “shower rocks.” “Or I could just tell her to leave a rock at my place if she wants.” “I’m probably not going to do that,” Ferris added. At press time, a visibly perplexed Ferris had seen the rock sitting in Milstein’s trashcan and then looked in the shower to see another rock sitting in its place.

Children, Dad, and Facts: dare-i-say-asexual Can we please be the generation that stops putting up with the family child molester? The grown uncle who dates teenage girls, the husband who makes uncomfortable comments about young women's clothing, or the cousin who raises red flags with their behavior towards children but no one wants to talk about all need to go Children, especially young women, are expected to "keep the family together" by not making a fuss over incredibly traumatic behavior Children don't deserve to suffer trauma for adults' feelings of togetherness. They're more worthy of protection than predators. A healthy family is not built on the backs of abuse survivors expected to live their lives in silence without justice, support, or protection baamilk * to-Price ladyfatmouse We are that's why a lot of the generations before us don't like us clarknokent Facts, as call them out on their shit soon as we find out. Or let it be known that we not going to stuff they're gonna be at yourunclesatan one other thing don't limit your vigilance to men. female abusers almost never get caught, reported, or even spoken of. i never got help because everybody assumed that a mother was incapable of sexually abusing her own kids. nobody was looking out for me or my brothers and if they had been, they would have automatically suspected my dad who never lifted a finger to harm us. the nurturing gentle woman stereotype/gender role held in place by sexism allows abusers to get away with everything - don't buy into it and don't assume that women can't be abusers too root out every abuser in your family, even if they 're women.

Community, Fire, and Police: Robert Littal Follow aso @BSO Cops Resign After MO Town Elects 1st Black Female Mayor bit.ly/1F41Fdw wia @Tamantha5 7:15 PM - 19 Apr 2015 わ ★ 180 RETWEETS 47 FAVORITES David Waldman @Kagrox Follow Refusing to abide by your oath of office bc the mayor is black tells us everything we need to know about how you regarded the oath before. 8:25 AM-20 Apr 2015 27 RETWEETS 18 FAVORITES bilt2tumble: lisafer: peroxidepirate: antilla-dean: micdotcom: Several Missouri cops have resigned after their town elected a black female mayor  The city of Parma, Missouri, has seen mass resignations among the local police force after the city’s first black female mayor, Tyrus Byrd, was sworn in on Tuesday. Five of the force’s six officers handed in their resignations to the outgoing mayor — but they weren’t the only ones to quit on the new mayor. Beyond microaggressions.   This is what black women have to deal with in any professional situation.  This is the most extreme, but we are constantly having to prove our competence. I feel for this woman. I really do. But those cops who are such racist pieces of shit they refuse to work for a Black woman? Good riddance. Mayor Byrd and the whole community will be better off without them in positions of authority. Wait, it’s bigger than this. This mayor ran on an anti-corruption platform, and there were a total of twenty people who resigned from various parts of the city - city attorney, police, water supervision. It’s suspected that they were all linked to the previous mayor and were part of the corruption she was campaigning against. Citizens have been complaining for years about the corruption with the previous Mayor Randall, and it’s suspected that these resignations were from his cronies. Which makes her the one of the most effective mayors in the U.S. simply by being elected. Going through the records to figure out just how corrupt/racist/abusive they were before she stepped into Office and handing out indictments/canceling pensions is gonna be hard enough. But, at least, now she won’t have to fire their asses.

Community, Doctor, and Facebook: MEDICAL MIRACLE: MAN'S BRAIN TUMOR VANISHES WITHOUT SURGERY Several doctors are dumbfounded after finding a patient’s suspected malignant brain tumor disappeared without surgical treatment, giving the patient a renewed sense of hope. CBS Sacramento reported Friday that the neurosurgeons and specialists in charge of treating Paul Wood, a patient from Lodi, California, are scratching their heads after brain scans revealed his tumor disappeared the day before he was scheduled for surgery. Wood, a father and volunteer in his community, noticed something was amiss several months ago when he could barely stand up straight. “I had massive headaches, I couldn’t walk down the hallway without holding on to the walls,” he said. The Lodi man went to his primary care doctor, who referred him to a neurosurgeon at UC San Francisco. The neurosurgeon said his brain was bleeding, but radiologists said there was evidence of a tumor. Wood, who considers himself a man of faith, turned to his community for support. But what he did not expect was the overwhelming amount of prayer and support for him on social media. “My phone is blowing up, my Facebook is prayer after prayer, all over California,” said Wood. When doctors took another brain scan the day before his operation, they canceled the surgery because the tumor had disappeared. Wood said it was nothing short of a “miracle” from God. “It’s a miracle and that is the way God planned it,” he said. Wood’s doctor struggled to explain why the tumor disappeared, admitting that there are some things “that we can’t explain.” “We do tests and we have medical technology and we try to come up with some conclusion… sometimes things happen that we can’t explain,” said Dr. Richard.
