What are you?
And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

"Why Don’t the Unemployed Get Off Their Couches?" and Eight Other Critical Questions for Americans (via seriouslyamerica)

"7) Why are Walmart and other businesses opposed to SNAP cuts?
Public benefits are now a huge part of the profits of certain major corporations.”

Or, in short, the government pays Walmart to starve it’s employees.

do you ever get in those moods where you don’t feel like reading and you don’t feel like being on the internet and you don’t feel like watching a show and you don’t feel like sleeping and you don’t feel like existing in general

BUT YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING.

Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.

And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.

That’s how you apologise. Short, honest, shows understanding.

Hey everyone!

We’ve decided to begin cleaning up the network a bit! Basically, we’re doing a really simple reapply: if you’re still interested in staying (and being active!) in the network, please fill out our re-app here! (It’s just 2 questions!) If you’re not interested, just don’t reapply and we’ll send you off, no questions asked.

We’ll be sending PMs to everyone as reminders, too!

Thanks everyone!

I’m not super active but i still want to be involved, is that okay?

Oh dear, your claws have gotten a bit too long… we’ll have to groom them. And your paw pads are full and plump. Very attractive!

SPICE MASS

Private commission for a scene from Frank Herbert’s DUNE.

I was pretty pleased to get asked to do this as I love the book and have read it several times.
