Well, let’s fight then. Acrylic is far and away the best for charity knitting. And knitting for children, and home dec. There are hella nice acrylics out there now- its not all red heart super saver. I’m probably going to do a sweater for myself out of acrylic soon. Not every hand knit needs to be precious. Sometimes… Read more
As a pretty avid Raveler, you canNOT escape these people. I saw a convo taken down six or so minths ago in a group for LACE KNITTING(which doesn’t seem like a place for burning political discussions). It started out being a random lament from a lace knitter that they couldn’t read Russian or other Eastern European lang… Read more
Yeah, the first like 5 or 6 apps I sent my scores straight from the college board. Yale was a wild hare suuuuuper late, I went to my guidance counselor to help me with that, found out later she never sent the scores along. I didn’t really think i had a shot so didn’t put a ton of effort in. 🤷♀️ If I had known there… Read more
Ok. Lots of really shitty people started companies. And a company that faces up to its shitty history and tries to make some attempt at recourse is still ok in my book.
At my school, the counselors sent all the test scores out. It was a very small, very rural school. I didn't really question it when I was 17
At my school(very small, very rural) our counselors received our test scores and we told them what schools to send them to. 🤷♀️
My guidance counselor cost me acceptance to motherfuckin’ Yale. I had a really good GPA, a surprisingly high SAT, and extra curriculars out the wazoo. I applied at a few Kudzu league schools, a few back ups and decided “ what the hell. Send an application on to Yale for shits and giggles”. Somehow my SAT AND ACT scores… Read more
If I were on the Warren campaign, I woukd suggest Sheryl Crow’s “A Change Would Do You Good” catchy, immediately recognizable, a subtle call back to Obama, and also letting people know that you are here to fundamentally change American politics. Plus Lady Prez for the c-c-c-c-combo breaker
For me, personally it’s Disney. I was raised on a steady stream of Disney and Disney-esque (shout out to Odette from the Swan Princess!) girls who were smart and capable and all that jazz but who had all their hardships wiped away by becoming royal. Now, I’m a pretty strident feminist who need a man like a fish needs… Read more
There are literally DOZENS of us!
Chernobyl gives me the HIGHEST hopes for His Dark Materials
Eh, I actually think it’s the opposite really. A population whose imaginations are fired up by “plausible” science fiction do amazing things. Make space fun and inspire kids to want to explore and discover aliens. Get them interested in STEM because of science fiction and let them write the science papers of tomorrow.
How badly has she pissed off the makeup people? Every week she is more and more ham colored.
Yeah. I only skated with a lecture and a huge reduction in my grade on that paper because I was an undergrad and the rest of the paper was completely cited and foot noted. The professor could tell I wasn’t trying to “get away” with anything- I just made a bonehead mistake. Bonehead mistakes are things that undergrads… Read more
