I have a (possibly nutty) theory that this is fueled to some degree by the “self esteem” movement of the 70's and 80's. Parents of insecure kids were told to tell their kids how awesome they were, they did, but unfortunately those kids realized when they hit adulthood that the world is not going to keep telling you… Read more
I posted this on the review of the movie, but I am still hung up on her character getting ginormous bleeding blisters. It’s when she & the kid go back to the tower. She takes off her hiking boots and then wool socks. Those are so bloody they stick to her skin from all the raw blisters she’s sporting after hiking a… Read more
I just saw the Earther headline about some sort of plastic-driven sperm count decrease. Please god make it true.
Unfortunately most of the current assholes will die of natural causes long before anything gets really bad due to climate change. That’s one of the reasons they don’t give a shit about changing their behavior.
The moment he turned around and said “I’ve got you ma’am” to the flight attendant melted my heart. But the rest of it was absolutely horrible. One of the saddest things about the last four years is how the ahole in chief taught Americans to openly hate each other and removed the shame that previously stopped most idiot… Read more
That’s actually the only reason I like seeing her. Not because the hairstyles are flattering, but because I’m almost certain her hairstylist is trolling her. The stylist is on record saying she’s not, but if someone were trolling an obnoxious client and wanted to continue to do so, I don’t think they’d admit to it.
The teenage years are when the hero worship clears away and kids begin to get some clarity about either parents true qualities good and bad. It’s fine if the judge did not want them to testify in court. But he could have asked the children in chambers, just with the lawyers present without the parents.
Okay, just as a rule for us to use in this trying time (and at all times, really,) when a god tells you to do stupid awful things, and especially stupid and awful things to children, do not listen to that god. Find a different god. Like the cake god, for example. The cake god will never hurt you and only wants you to… Read more
So many thoughts and questions: Why is a state representative substitute teaching? Why isn’t this being considered a felony assault on a minor? Also, the way he’s following around touching that one male student, I’d put money on him having ‘sinful thoughts’ about members of his own sex. What a fucking clown.
