Yeah like…i’m always surprised when people say things like “but the NICE whiskey wouldn’t exist in communism” and talk about how stuff we consider really quality nowadays that is mostly restricted to rich folk because it’s handmade/artisan/whatever wouldn’t exist in communism and it’s just like…?
How could that be true? I’m pretty sure that people who are making whiskey because they’re PASSIONATE about whiskey and not just cranking it out in some factory so they can survive are gonna make the GOOD shit.
Why would everyone have to suffer through mediocre shit in communism when that mediocrity is mostly a result of unsustainable, shitty mass production type bullshit that we have nowadays?
Not that nothing would be mass produced, but like…if people are passionate about doing something, it stands to reason the goods and services that come out of that are going to be BETTER.
I work for the Mart of Wals and I cannot tell you how many people will walk up to me when my vest is opened, my name tag is off, and my phone is IN MY HAND and I’m CLEARLY CLOCKED OUT and be like “do you know where (bullshit product) is?” Like, couple of things: I work in the deli, not stock or anywhere else. So, no, probably not. Secondly, I’m clearly off the clock, and it’s against policy and also probably illegal for me to do what is considered work off the clock for free. Thirdly, why don’t you ask the 10+ people milling around on the clock who actually work in this department where this thing is??? Some of them you PASSED on the way to bother me! I’d like to clarify that if the people ask me nicely and I know where it is I’ll point them in the right direction or if I don’t know I’ll grab someone for them, but when people are rude I’m just like “sorry, I’m off the clock and I don’t work in this department. Maybe they (literally pointing to a employee 5 ft away) can help.”
like one of the most annoying fucking trends lately in the tech industry is slapping dumb bullshit features onto a product in order to make it “smarter” or “more modern” even when literally all it does it make it harder to use and needlessly complicated.
Don’t you just hate those acne product ads that show a person that literally has like two pimples. And they always say how tough it was to “live with acne”
Like gimme a break. I’d kill to have the before skin in many acne product ads.
idk if this has been asked before: what is your opinion on those "detox tea" things? i keep seeing it everywhere :/
If hasn’t been. Interesting question.
Honestly anything from a store shelf, a crash diet, or any “detox cleanse” product is bullshit that plays into diet culture. People see the word “detox” and think “ooooh! I’ll weigh less if I rid myself of toxins!” They are buying into a product or idea that may be healthy, depending, but it’s not necessary. If your liver and kidneys work, you’re already getting a detox, like, every day. Many of these products seems to work on the principle of a placebo effect; people who feel better using them feel that way because they expect to. Similarly, people who go on “detox diets” often complain of low energy at first but then feeling better after a few days. They attribute their energy change to “detoxing”, but really its most likely because they’re eating a lot more fruits and veggies than usual, instead of junk food. Eating better usually makes you feel better.
The last issue with this is that a majority of these products, like most “fast fixes” in the diet industry, aren’t regulated in any way. John Oliver did a great bit about how dangerous that can be that I can link you to later.
A few years ago I bought some loose leaf detox tea, and it tastes great, but it isn’t doing any magical thing that my body doesn’t already do.
So.. basically I think it’s bullshit trying to market to people desperate to lose weight who don’t understand how their bodies work, so the industry takes advantage of them and makes them feel bad about themselves, and so you end up with greedy companies and people paying because they’re desperate to love themselves and feel better without giving up what they already have. Sad, really.
I swear to fuck, staff, whatever godawful sexist datatrawling you and yahoo have cooked up to suddenly put this bullshit:
front and centre on my dash needs to fucking stop, OK?
I mean, if I wanted a company to assume I give a shit about laundry detergent because their data says I’m female with a kid, then I’d stay the fuck on Facebook while sipping a cheeky chardonnay liberally seasoned with tears of despair, on account of how I’d be dead inside.
You wanna advertise shit on tumblr? Maybe take a goddamn trawl through the kinds of products your userbase is already reblogging and recommending enthusiastically and which aren’t typically advertised elsewhere, like FtM underwear and geeky gadets and Mountain Lodge candles or whatever, and try to lock that shit down instead, maybe by, oh, I don’t know, forming innovative partnerships with the many small businesses now flourishing as part of the digital craft economy and utilising what makes tumblr a unique marketplace for such items to turn a profit rather than just shilling us the same ugly crap we’re getting everywhere else.
dont let this website skew your idea of how you should act in regards to your mental illness. like… i know its great to find people going through the same shit as you and you can get 500+ notes on a post about avoiding someone or feeling shit or w/e
but then you will only get 6 notes when you push through that bullshit and have a productive ass day when you wanted to stay in bed with your phone off
you build an identity around your illness and you have to keep it up in order to keep the “community” and the attention you wouldnt get otherwise.
it happens in support groups and you can bet your ass it happens here whether you acknowledge it or not.
what do you like the most about your best friend?
UUuuuuauuUUuuuuuUUuhhhHhHhHh everything! I don’t really have a good answer bc I like everything about @my-heart-is-a-fish :’). She’s hilarious, witty, patient with me, cute af, and just sings like she’s a mermaid princess. I’m going to really miss her a lot when i start grad school bc she’s my favorite person <3.
🌟 what do you like about yourself? (must choose at least 3 things!)
I like that I’m able to learn things on my own. It lets me dabble in a variety of stuff. I also like my ability to bullshit a pretty decent product. And this is vain but i really do like my eyes.
💫 who inspires you?
My friends tbh. They’re all so creative or good at what they do and it makes me want to get better at stuff
ALRIGHT NOW LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT THIS FUCKING RAINBOW ART BULLSHIT.
IT WAS LITERALLY EVERY KID’S DREAM TO OWN ONE OF THESE. I MEAN LOOK AT THOSE FUCKING PERFECT RAINBOWS EVERYONE IS MAKING. EVERY SINGLE KID WANTED TO CREATE SUCH A VIBRANT MASTERPIECE IN JUST ONE EASY STROKE.
THIS PRODUCT WAS MADE TO TEACH KIDS THEIR FIRST EVER DISAPPOINTMENT. BECAUSE WITH YOUR FIRST STROKE THOSE COLOURS WERE FUCKING MUTED AND PALE AND MOST DEFINITELY NOT A VIBRANT RAINBOW HELL. BUT THE SECOND STROKE. THE SECOND FUCKING STROKE. AS SOON AS YOU TRY SOMETHING AFTER THE FIRST STROKE, ALL YOUR COLOURS WILL TURN BROWN LIKE THE TOTAL BULLSHIT THIS PRODUCT IS.
