I did this for Halloween one year. I used waterproof stage makeup. Black hands and wrists feathered into white everywhere else. And whiteout contacts. People refused to make eye contact with me.

It’s thought that “mind your Ps and Qs” comes from a similar source. (The lowercase letters look much like one another when you’re looking at the mirror image.)

Incidentally, you’ll notice that there isn’t a great amount of Organic Cheese. You’ll often see cheese that specifies that the cows haven’t been treated with hormones and antibiotics —but much less commonly “organic.” To be labeled organic, the product must be free of gmos. Organic cheese is made using the stomach acid of cows (usually calves). Most cheese made today uses a bacterial rennet, which is genetically modified.
So, this augmented bacterial rennet, saves animal lives, but can’t be organic.

Yeah. I don’t have public sewer. I literally have to deal with the shit. (Though for a single family home, a septic system is pretty low maintenance).
That said, I really appreciate the roads and schools, police and other emergency services, public health facilities and even the public services that provide assistance to single parents or people who need assistance.
As a member of a community, a society, I enjoy being a part of it and doing my part to support it.

I think the second guy was mistaken, she wasn’t approaching him—she was approaching someone else to avoid him.

I worked with a woman who was on Flight 93. She was on a business trip. The company set up a scholarship in her name.

The Domestication of Animals, 13 comments

One of the things that keeps rabbit of American tables is the way it’s handled by the USDA. You can’t sell meat that isn’t USDA/FDA approved. But also, Rabbit doesn’t trigger a mandatory inspection—so it’s elective which means you have to pay for USDA inspection (whereas cows and chickens etc are inspected as part of requirement) and wait for a time when an inspector is available. On the other side of that, because it’s an elective inspection you can (through great pains) get your facility USDA approved and then apply for and FDA approval. This makes the product commercially viable because it isn’t a mandatory inspection item. It’s convoluted and tedious. And rabbits aren’t like chickens—baby rabbits won’t survive if their mama doesn’t care for them and she won’t if she is stressed.

As well as which hand I’m holding the phone with. You can’t cover/shade the light sensor or you’re screen will get too dim.

A couple months ago, I charged a large purchase to my credit card, which put me at my limit. Despite the fact that paid that balance within the week I charged it, my score dropped 17 points.

I guess this makes it really confusing when they have testicles. Does that make them trans?

It’s funny because since the pandemic, people are refusing to work those crappy jobs with inadequate pay (that no one is forcing them to work). And we call them lazy too.

That’s gotta be tough. I still haven’t met a real live flat earthed, so there’s part of me that still questions if this is real or a gag…
