No way is America ready to vote for Kamala. I know I will get downvoted for this, but this is the reality of the country we live in. We are so fucked.

This is great news! I hope one day my loan can get canceled too. I’d really like that $400/month back in my pocket.

This is a statement from his wife from the Munich Security Conference:

"Thank you to the conference for giving me the opportunity to speak. I’m sure you have seen the terrible news. I kept thinking, should I come here or go be with my children. And it occurred to me that if Alexei was in my shoes, he would be standing on this stage.

I don’t know whether to believe the terrible news we received from Russian government sources because for many years – and you all know this – we cannot believe Putin and his government; they are always lying.

But if it is true… I want Putin and his friends and his government to know that they will bear the full brunt of responsibility for what they did to our country, my family, and my husband. And that day will come very soon.

I want to call on the world community, everyone in this room, people all over the world to come together and defeat this evil, this reign of terror. Putin must be held personally responsible for the horrors he did to my country, our country, in the recent years. Thank you."

Knitting. Super cheap to start, you can pick up a set of needles and some acrylic yarn for under $20. But when you start getting into nice yarns and bigger pieces, you are spending hundreds of dollars on yarn alone for a blanket or a sweater. And you want nice needles in all sizes as well as all types (double pointed, regular and circular)… more hundreds of dollars.

Moral of the story is if a friend knits you something with nice yarn, please appreciate it. Lots of effort and thought went into it.

Mine will likely never be eliminated unless it all goes away because I make too much, and that’s totally fine by me. I want as many people to get relief as possible! Public colleges and universities should be free, and student debt should not be a thing. At least not the way it is now.

This may be an unpopular opinion, but cheerleading is ALL about sexualizing young girls and women. Maybe get rid of it altogether.

Edit: Since this proved to be a popular opinion, let me get on my soap box. Not only does cheerleading unnecessarily sexualize girls, it's also the most dangerous sport for female athletes. There's really no reason for it, IMO.

collegiate cheerleading accounted for 70.5% of all female catastrophic sports injuries and high school cheerleading for 65.2% of all high school female sports injuries.

In my neighborhood there is a old guy who takes his little granddaughter for walks while open carrying a gun. We live in a very safe suburban area. Some people are fucking nuts and are totally looking for a fight.

She was lured in by the cute baby goat in pajamas and kidnapped… like all members of this community would be.

As a parent, I get it. We had to buy 17 luxury RVs before my son turned 18. It’s brutal out there.

This man wives.

When Matt “I traffic minors” Gaetz wants you to resign, you know you fucked up.

As one former senior administration official puts it: “You try working for him and not chasing pills with alcohol.”

Have you tried having integrity and not working for him though?

Podcasts will have ads no matter where you listen to them. That's not Spotify inserting them, it's the podcasts. I pay for a family subscription to Spotify, and I never get ads in between songs, not after updates or anything.

So those are penises…

A stingray's sex can be determined fairly easily based on the presence or absence of claspers, two "penises" connected to the inside of the pelvic fins of male rays. They are usually about the size of your pinky finger on mature specimens and are rolled up into hollow tubes.

“X is enabling an information independence that is uncomfortable for some people,” Ms. Yaccarino wrote. “X is standing at a unique and amazing intersection of Free Speech and Main Street — and the X community is powerful and here to welcome you.”

Wow, the mental gymnastics. Someone call the Olympic committee.

My sincere condolences on being married to a mad person.

She also apparently called CPS on a different mother for questioning her special education program.

“I was just obeying orders” - sounds familiar.

Of course he did. Overturning Roe was on all of their agendas as they were getting confirmed. They would just never admit to it. Conservatives are liars.

These are his actual words... or word salad:

Union was saved by the immortal heroes at Gettysburg. Gettysburg. What an unbelievable battle that was, the battle of Gettysburg. What an unbelievable… I mean, it was so much and so interesting and so vicious and horrible and so beautiful in so many different ways. It represented such a big portion of the success of this country. Gettysburg, wow. I go to Gettysburg, PA to look and to watch. And the statement of Robert E Lee, who’s no longer in favor. Did you ever notice that? No longer in favor. “Never fight uphill, me boys, never fight uphill.” They were fighting uphill, he said. Wow, that was a big mistake. He lost his great general, and they were fighting. “Never fight uphill, me boys,” but it was too late.

This one is more of an icebreaker/game and can be fun to do at a party where there is more talking than partying. You need pen and paper or a phone to take notes.

  1. Ask each person to come up with a color and 3 adjectives to describe it.

  2. Ask each person to come up with an animal and 3 adjectives to describe it.

  3. Ask each person to come up with a body of water (can be specific like “Lake Baikal” or non-specific like “ocean”) and 3 adjectives to describe it.

  4. Ask each person to imagine themselves in an all-white room with no doors and no windows. Write down 3 adjectives that describe how it makes them feel.

Ok, now:

  1. The color and related adjectives is how you see yourself.

  2. The animal and related adjectives is how you see other people.

  3. Body of water and related adjectives is how you see your sex/love life.

  4. The white room is how you see death.

People love this shit. Lots of laughs all around.

Can confirm, am therapist.
