Sorry, I didn’t get that far yet. There’s a really great fungus over here. I need a few more photos of it.

The trick is finding someone who appreciates it the same way you do with you.

I have an uncomfortable sensation that the “before” images are the AI generated images. The lady in the upper right looks like there’s a shirt collar that is trying to be removed… all the before images are extra busty, but the corrected images seem more natural.

I had a similar, but less judgy/condescending sensation about statistics. I always feared it because I am not great at math. But, to me, it was the easiest math I’d ever done.

I suppose you need to be seeing a proctologist if your anatomy is that color…

I was thinking the same thing. My kid is a picky eater and I do believe it is sensory. He favors distinct, often bland, flavors. Like plain pasta, veggies or meat. He won’t eat a steak cooked well-done—doesn’t like the texture. He doesn’t like cooked carrots… texture. He is perfectly happy not to eat at all rather than eat something he doesn’t like. He has a very keen sense of taste/smell and doesn’t want the overload.
When I was young, I was also very picky. For the same reasons. Textures bothered me. Flavors could be too intense. Or bother me because they have too many components. So, I relate to him and other picky eaters. I’m not so picky anymore, but I still don’t eat fish. And texture can ruin a meal for me.

In his defense it was a joke. “Krugman said it was part of a piece he contributed to New York Times Magazine in 1998:
It was a thing for the Times magazine's 100th anniversary, written as if by someone looking back from 2098, so the point was to be fun and provocative, not to engage in careful forecasting; I mean, there are lines in there about St. Petersburg having more skyscrapers than New York, which was not a prediction, just a thought-provoker.”

None. The cupcake is moist and porous. You don’t know if the cupcake was placed on the seat before or after the flush, so droplets from flush could have landed on the surface of the cupcake where they would be wicked into the interior.

(From NPR) “[Russell Moore] on why he thinks Christianity is in crisis:
“It was the result of having multiple pastors tell me, essentially, the same story about quoting the Sermon on the Mount, parenthetically, in their preaching — "turn the other cheek" — [and] to have someone come up after to say, "Where did you get those liberal talking points?" And what was alarming to me is that in most of these scenarios, when the pastor would say, "I'm literally quoting Jesus Christ," the response would not be, "I apologize." The response would be, "Yes, but that doesn't work anymore. That's weak." And when we get to the point where the teachings of Jesus himself are seen as subversive to us, then we're in a crisis.”

It would probably be difficult to date a person who had 50 owners. Or any owners really. Seems like they would have a lot of baggage and need a lot of intensive therapy after being owned and used like a fxxxing shoe.

This guy, Alex Schafer, paints all sorts of bank branch’s on fire. He goes to the location and does it. He gets hassled sometimes by law enforcement. It’s amazing.

Tipping is stupid. Change my mind 10 comments
roanoke · 28 weeks ago
I don’t know if you’ve worked in a foodservice job that is tipped, but many of these servers are not paid otherwise. And while I agree that the establishment should be responsible for paying their staff, that’s not the way it is. So, no, tipping is not just a nice extra that shouldn’t be expected. It’s how these people pay their bills and feed their families.
In my state tipped employee minimum wage is $2.13 an hour. I remember that most pay periods that didn’t cover my taxes. My take home was almost entirely from tips.
What should be doesn’t matter. We are faced with what is. If you dine in a restaurant with tipped workers, and don’t leave a tip you, are expecting that person to volunteer their time for you.
I wonder if they found one 2 comments

Just because you’re pay $10/an hour and not claiming to have an employee doesn’t mean I’m not claiming my income (this paying 100% of the taxes rather than just the employees portion).

While very few “pro-life” proponents would deny a women abortive care in a life threatening situation, most support laws that, in practice, reduce or deny proper healthcare to women in life threatening situations.

I remember the time in my life, before I had a baby—back when I swore I never would. So many of the noises children make were deplorable. Then I had a baby. The noises are still deplorable, but you become desensitized. And while I understand that people without children haven’t gotten that desensitization, it’s part of life. Take a deep breath. I know it feels like 29 hours, but babies don’t actually have that much fortitude.
