“Each of these people is extremely abusive, and each of them deserved what they got from me. I’m a live and let live person but if you come for me, expect to feel bad about it.” Read more

That was a good read! Fuck TERFs/FARTs, and Brennan in particular. The cognitive dissonance of saying trans women are mentally disturbed men but she fully supports their rights to a job, while pushing completely against all trans rights, just hurts my brain.

The more I think about it the more convinced I am that she went to the border as some kind of racist tourist, looking forward to seeing the misery her fiance created, and concocted this thin veneer of a reason.

My co-worker works from home. She has two kids and they both know when I’m calling from the office. Her oldest, typically, brings up “Mom, what are we having for lunch?” Her daughter, a lovely two year old, recognizes my voice now and will try to talk to me over her mother. So, I find myself talking to the two year Read more

I think the basic assumption that the first shaker is talking to the second is inconclusive. The use of “you’re” implies that the shaker is speaking directly to the reader, not to or about the other shaker. So the correct answer to what goes where is: Read more

God this is fucking stupid. Put salt in the one with the word salt on it. Put pepper in the one with the word pepper on it. The wording doesn’t even make sense if you try to interpret the phrase as being spoken by the shakers. There’s no standard around which shaker has more holes. Many of them have the same number.

Just base it on the number of holes on top. Want more salt than pepper? Cool, salt goes in the “You’re the Salt..” shaker because it has 3 holes as opposed to 2 (giggity). Like pepper more than salt? Flip it around.

Came here to say this! I could tell from the headline of the People story that it was family therapy and not couples counseling.

Prepare your food on a salt block in a salt cellar from which you oversee your peons working in your salt mine.

Not to be a pedant, but Jolie and Pitt are doing family therapy - which is TOTALLY different from couple’s therapy. It’s a whole different set of goals and skills you work on, and in cases where the parents have already divorced is going to de-emphasize the couple to focus on the emotional/psychological needs of the Read more

Again, people don’t quit jobs — they quit bosses. And we’re rapidly determining which companies are trying to do the right thing, and which are just... fucking terrible. Read more

What the fuck kind of message do these companies think that “fuck your children and fuck their well-being” conveys to their clients?

I went to grad school with a woman who did a similar thing with her husband’s nephew, who was only 13 at the time. The son they had was my son’s age and we couldn’t figure out why the guy was in a football league for guys 21 and under. In an email, she eventually admitted how old he was and what happened. I forwarded Read more

This whole case was train-wreck TV at it finest back then, and I can’t believe the access they both gave the media when it came out. They did interviews together, they talked about how in love they were....it’s unbelievable.

He was absolutely convinced (brainwashed) that he was in love with her, and the story was Read more
