Tbh you don’t really have the right to judge what somebody else is putting in their body. Poor people crave soda and get their periods and have kids who want Cheetos sometimes too. Nobody is going through your grocery cart with a fine-toothed comb. Trust me, that alone is privilege. Carefully selecting the least judgmental looking cashier at a grocery store is a real life thing people deal with. I promise.
To me, this is the same thing as saying I can’t buy something nice when I finally catch a tiny break in life. JUST BECAUSE WE’RE POOR DOESN’T MEAN WE DON’T WANT STUFF TOO. There is nothing worse than saving up for something you really want for a long time and then getting judged for it. I remember how much shit I got on here for posting about owning a MacBook (which was GIVEN to me, but I didn’t specify that because it’s clearly nobody’s business) and anyway it was just so discouraging and annoying. Like we don’t deserve to have nice things. Whatever
Hi I have food stamps and I shop at Whole Foods and buy gluten free things and then get shitty looks when I DARE to buy a 12 pack of generic ~*organic*~ sprite too. This mentality needs to fuck right off.
Reasons I use the self checkout at Giant.
This is also neglecting to realize that food stamps are not infinite, and that the junk food is cheaper for how many people it feeds. Being able to shop healthy is a privilege in the United States, and that privilege is not available to people who rely on food stamps to survive. Get off your goddamned high horse and go fuck yourself.
Sergeant Stubby, so named for his lack of a tail, was a stray pitbull found wandering Yale campus by some soldiers there during drill.
"He learned the bugle calls, the drills, and even a modified dog salute as he put his right paw on his right eyebrow when a salute was executed by his fellow soldiers."
He was smuggled into WW1 by a soldier, and allowed to stay when he saluted the man who would later become his commanding officer.
He was sent to the trenches where he was under constant enemy fire for over a month. He was wounded in the leg by a German hand grenade, sent to a hospital to convalesce, then returned to the front lines…
After being wounded in a gas attack, Stubby developed such a sensitivity that he would run and bark and alert the other soldiers of incoming gas attacks AND artillery attacks precious seconds before they occurred, saving countless lives. A canine early warming system.
He would go into no man’s land, find wounded men, shouting in English, And stay with them, barking, until medics arrived.
He once captured a German spy.
The spy, mapping out Allied trenches, tried to call to Stubby, but Stubby got aggressive and then chased down and attacked the spy when he attempted to flee, allowing Allied soldiers to capture him.
For this he was awarded the rank of Sergeant- the first dog to do so.
After helping the Allies retake Château-Thierry in France, Sergeant Stubby was sewn a uniform by the women of the town, on which to wear his many medals.
He went on to meet multiple Presidents, dignitaries and ambassadors and become the mascot of Georgetown University football.
There is nothing about this that is not magical.
A very good dog.
The skull-shaped Snapdragon Flower Dragon(Antirrhinum majus) seed pod. The Antirrhinum, commonly known as the snapdragon has been a popular garden plant for many years. Also known as the dragon flower, its common name derives from the resemblance of the flower to a dragon’s head.Yet once the flower has died, leaving behind the seed pod, something a little more macabre appears. The dragon – just a visual metaphor after all – appears to have a skull.
Deleted scene from the critically acclaimed film, Gravity.

Somewhere on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, nestled at the foot of a desert mountain range, sits a peculiar sight that is almost completely out of place: hundreds of seats for an outdoor movie theater. Estonian photographer Kaupo Kikkas recently visited the desolate location and brought back these amazing shots of a decaying dream. He shares via his blog that the theater was built not too long ago by a man from France with considerable means. Tons of old seats and a generator were hauled in from Cairo, not to mention a giant screen that looked like the sail of a ship.
Everything was set for opening night, with one small problem. Kikkas says the locals weren’t particularly keen on the whole idea and decided to discreetly sabotage the generator. A single movie was never screened. So now it sits in the middle of a desert, a random movie theater in the middle of nowhere. You can still see it on Google Maps.
