A commercial plane carrying 295 people was allegedly shot down between the Ukranian and Russian border Thursday. The plane was flying at an altitude of 33,000 feet. While most outlets are reporting the plane being shot down, we currently have no official confirmation on what caused the crash or who was on the plane.…
I am currently in job hunting hell and a question I keep coming across is "What advice would you give your teenage self?"* and since this is Backtalk I thought we could give this a Nic Cage twist!
Have you ever looked back at a past decision and been like "thank god I didn't go the other way!". Maybe it was a person you almost dated [or married!], a place you almost moved to, a school you almost went to, or job you almost took? Come tell me about it!
This is officially my favorite thing on the internet. Somewhere a bald eagle just shed a single red white and blue tear thinking about the beauty of this post.
Dear Mr. Pinkham
UPDATE: So I spent $50 and the last 10 hours running a very fancy recovery. About 10-20% of my data was recoverable (the rest had already been overwritten). I am super upset about it. I no longer have back-ups of a lot of my schoolwork. Thanks for all your suggestions.
ETA: Thanks for all the great advice. I am just going to tell her that the paper needs more editing than I can provide and ask her to speak to the ESL and writing centers. This post will self-destruct in a while.
I know some other GTers share my love of Erika Moen's weekly comic on all thing sex positive, known as Oh Joy Sex Toy* (it you haven't read it, it is really great) and they just announced that they are going to self publish a book of all the comics from the last year, along with some new things. If you would like to…
Good Morning/Afternoon/Whatever it is where you are, Hivemind! I am in need of your help. My sister needs a new Yoga mat. She would like it not to cost a million dollars but all the cheapos ones seem to not be very slip-resistant. I know we have some Yoga-fans on here so I thought I could reach out for help. Any…
Because I desperately want to like her and it gets harder and harder everyday.
Ms. American agrees.
I took the day off today so that I could work on my paper that is due tomorrow but instead I slept until noon and spent most of the day watching Rehab Addict on HGTV. Then a few hours ago I decided I had to work on my paper so I turned my nanny program on in Chrome so I couldn't cheat and guess what? I just…
SNACKTASTIC F*CKING CURSED ME!
So I finally joined the rest of you in the 21st century and got a RSS reader (feedly) so I won't have to click through bookmarks folder for blogs. Now I am looking for more and would love suggestions! Any favorite sites to recommend?
So I am freaking out because I have a paper due in a few hours and for the first time in my life I am under the page count (I am normally very long winded). The assignment reads that it should be "approximately 15 pages" and it looks like I am going to clock in at 13 full pages, spilling a little onto the top of the…
I watched Clue and Mean Girls last night and I am watching Robin Hood Men in Tights for the first time in years. It is seriously the best. So any of you find anything good to watch this weekend?
So my boyfriend is considering making a Kinja account so he can post on GT. You may either try and talk him out of it or try and talk him into it. I am on the fence about which one I would do at the moment. Make your best arguments!
I love you, whoever you are (I know it was someone from GT). I finished her all 3 books of her 50 Shades of Grey recap series and started the Buffy ones. If you haven't been introduced to her yet, let me be that person for you, this is her blog and it is wonderful. She is seriously hilarious and wicked smart. I have…
On the new version of YouTube there is an option for me to mute old comments so I won't get notifications about them anymore, and I love it. I desperately want this for kinja. Especially if we could do it for comments and posts. Who is with me? What would you mute?
