Dogg, if you’re going to spend the rest of your life doing electrical engineering, you shouldn’t be allowed to graduate until you can demonstrate that you can see the world through the lens of something other than the white male lens. Don’t worry, asshole, you’ll be back cloistered away with your white dudes soon enough.

Anonymous asked: How come when you say 'don't be racist' racists hear 'don't be white'?

I gotta say, it’s probably because they’re stupid as all hell.

Be a dad. Don’t be ‘Mom’s assistant.’ That’s depressing, just waiting for her to write you a list, walk around a store staring at it, calling her from the cereal aisle to make sure you got the right thing. Be a man. Make your own list. Fathers have skills that they never use at home. You run a landscaping business and you can’t dress and feed a 4-year-old? Take it on. Spend time with your kids and have your own ideas about what they need. It won’t take away your manhood; it will give it to you. I did that. I spent more time with my kids. And I found out that I’m a pretty bad father. I make a lot of mistakes and I don’t know what I’m doing. But my kids love me. Go figure.

Also, dont talk badly about your wife when she’s not around, it’s unnecessary at best and cruel at worst. So many men do this, especially when you’re working with their kids.

Why Edmonton city council could benefit from political parties | Metro

mastermaq:

"I believe that the democratic process is enhanced through opposition. Challenges and concerns are aired in public and it becomes clear who supports what and why. That’s not so in Edmonton. It is difficult to tell how your representative voted on any given issue. Beyond the banalities of a belief in a “welcoming” and “vibrant” city, it is difficult to tell what a municipal candidate actually stands for. Political parties with real platforms might just change that."

I agree with a desire for more transparency & accountability, but I don’t think political parties is the way to do it.

Ugh gross no!!!!

somebody should write an essay comparing and contrasting tina from bob’s burgers and meg from family guy and explain why tina hit the mark for respectfully portraying the awkward teenage years and why meg is a huge fucking insensitive joke that isn’t even funny

Tina is a character, Meg is a punchline. 

wow that’s a pretty concise essay

The art of Jaime Hernandez - the secrets of life and death by Todd Hignite.

But the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours (the average office worker gets less than three hours of actual work done in 8 hours) but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work.

We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing.
