Bad, College, and Energy: Kodak Black @KodakBlack1k Real Niggas Dont Wash Their Hands After They Pee A little back story on me I’m Karon I’m 22 from nyc and I been running this meme page since my sophomore year of high school. I’m in college right now. (6+ years since ). I Couldn’t even tell you what year standing I am cause I got screwed over on some super fuck shit that happen the beginning of the year. I remember when I first started comedy hella pple was hating on my shit like “you wanna be famous so bad you not even funny” then when I started gaining clout then everyone wanted shoutouts and etc.. I brought that up to say this ... things gonna go full circle And like it’s a real fucked up reality that some people only fuck with you when they decide too or find it beneficial. Then try to use other things to justify why they did some backwards fufu fuckshit to you. You know what I mean. Like use different scape goats to take away from the fact they fucked up. Stay clear from those type of people they will steal every ounce of you till you can’t give to their desire. Don’t expand your self to the last limit for someone. The hardest thing I think for a lot of people is balance. Clicking on all cylinders within your self and I mean like emotionally physically and mentally and to some spiritually. Like it takes a lot of mental toughness but it’s capapdle limit your distractions and keep your energy and spirits high. I’m not tryna make this some sad post it’s just my heart been heavy with the reality I be seeing in my personal life. And I know someone feel me. Stay strong if you need someone to chop it up with and talk y’all can hit my inbox. I don’t want people going through shit and have no way to ventilate Thier interior thoughts. I love chatting with you guys much love - Genuine

Drinking, Energy, and Life: THE LAST STRAW TOSSEL on Reason <p><a href="http://redbloodedamerica.tumblr.com/post/176022832961/plastic-straw-myths-do-you-enjoy-sipping" class="tumblr_blog">redbloodedamerica</a>:</p> <blockquote><h2> Plastic Straw Myths </h2><blockquote><p> Do you enjoy sipping drinks through plastic straws?  Well, if activists get their way you won’t be allowed to anymore.  “These must be banned,” they say.  </p><p>Why?</p><p>When celebrities speak, politicians listen.  Seattle recently banned straws, and other places want to do the same.  “The idea that you’re going to ban straws and save the world is ridiculous.”  Angela Logomasini studies environmental issues at the Competitive Enterprise Institute.  What will banning plastic straws accomplish?  “Probably nothing at all.  It might make some people in Hollywood feel good.  It may make some politicians feel good, like they’re doing something.  It might sound good at parties, but it’s not going to solve any problems.” </p><p>Plastic pollution in the ocean <i>is</i> a real problem, but only about 1% of it comes from the United States.  Of that 1%, a tiny amount comes from plastic straws.  But what about that 500 million number?  Where do they all get that number?  They got it from this child’s school project.  He says he got the 500 million straws a day figure through a phone survey he conducted with straw manufacturers.  The media just accepts his 500 million number.  But the actual number is much lower according to the analysis firm Technomic.  </p><p>Okay, so activists and media exaggerate the problem.  Still they promised it would be easy to get rid of the straws. “If we can reduce something that is easy, that is polluting in the environment, that is getting stuck in turtles’ noses and causing damage to the environment, let’s do that,” says progressive talk show host Ethan Bearman.  “Sometimes we do need a little gentle guiding hand from government.”  <i>Governments gentle guiding hand</i> will either ban straws or order us to replace this cheap plastic straw with ones like these made of paper or bamboo.  “Plastic doesn’t actually biodegrade.  So unlike a lot of other things, paper, for example, actually breaks down into other components.”  </p><p>That’s not a good thing.  That means paper straws break down, even while you’re using them.  They get soggy, they leak.  “That’s the beauty of plastic, it’s enduring,” says Logomasini, “Paper straws are going to break down while you’re drinking with it.”  Paper and bamboo straws aren’t environmentally pristine either.  Paper products take more energy and more effort to produce.  You’re going to have a net negative environmental impact.  The paper doesn’t degrade in a landfill either.  Everything is essentially mummified.  <b>You’re replacing a superior product with an inferior one and you’re asking people to pay more for it.</b> It doesn’t make a lot of sense,” she says. </p><p>It doesn’t, and the higher price is the final result.  Paper straws are eight times more expensive to make than plastic straws.  Won’t this hurt businesses?  “I don’t think so.  Maybe people won’t use straws,” claims New York City Councilman Barry Grodenchik.   “If it’s a $1.79 to get the fountain drink at Joe’s corner deli that we’re talking about, and now it’s a $1.83, I don’t see that as being a huge difference in the price,” says Bearman.  </p><p>“This is what environmentalists will say about <i>every</i> policy they put out.  A few cents here, a few cents there eventually begins to become a burden,” explains Logomasini.  We don’t need straws.  “You know a lot of things in life are not <i>necessary</i>, but beneficial and enjoyable.  Banning straws isn’t going to do anything for the environment.  So what they’re just trying to do is take away my freedom for nothing in return.”  </p><p>As the environment has become cleaner, that’s become a specialty of the environmental movement: spend <i>your</i> money on feel-good policies that make no real difference.<br/></p></blockquote></blockquote>
