I can’t say the job made me this way. More like me being this way made me right for the job. I used to think about it more, but, you know, you reach a certain age, you know who you are. Now I live in a little room out in the country, behind a bar. Work four nights a week. In between, I drink. And there ain’t nobody there to stop me. I know who I am. After all these years’ there’s a… There’s a victory in that.

There's a sign in the kitchen at Avengers Tower that says "JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE A SUPER SOLDIER DOES NOT MEAN YOU GET TO EAT ALL OF OUR SHIT ROGERS" (Also thank you for headcanoning with me this is super nice)

Ha! This is great because in Avengers Assemble, it’s Clint who eats things that aren’t his, but when it comes down to it, Clint knows better than to drink Kate’s special fruit juice (it’s probably the healthy, low-sugar variety anyway).

Her protein bars, however, are fair game.

anonymous asked:

How to survive high school????

You’re going to need three gallons of water, a supersoaker, four protein bars, 40 ft of rope, 1 cat, 8 cans of purple spray paint, and a broken television.

What you do next is this:

Step 1: Realize that high school is only four years of your life. Parts of it are really going to suck. It’s high school, it’s ugly and a mess.
Step 2: it doesn’t matter.
Step 3: read Step 2 again.
Step 4: get a part time job and buy a car as soon as you can. Having your own car and being in high school makes life so much easier. It’s doesn’t have to be a “cool” car.
Step 5: just be yourself. You’re going to get shit from people no matter what so you might as well embrace yourself and do you.

I dunno if any of this is going to be remotely helpful. It’s been 7 years since I graduated. I don’t think about it much.

Young black man jailed since April for alleged $5 theft found dead in cell

 A young black man ,Jamycheal Mitchell, 24, arrested by police in Portsmouth, Virginia, on the same day that one of the city’s officers fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old, has been found dead in jail after spending almost four months behind bars without bail for stealing groceries worth $5.

Jamycheal Mitchell, who had mental health problems, was discovered lying on the floor of his cell by guards early last Wednesday, according to authorities. While his body is still awaiting an autopsy, senior prison officials said his death was not being treated as suspicious.

Mitchell’s family said they believed he starved to death after refusing meals and medication at the jail, where he was being held on misdemeanour charges of petty larceny and trespassing.

“His body failed,” said Roxanne Adams, Mitchell’s aunt. “It is extraordinary. The person I saw deceased was not even the same person.” Adams, who is a registered nurse, said Mitchell had practically no muscle mass left by the time of his death.

Adams said in an interview that her nephew had bipolar disorder and schizophrenia for about five years. Nicknamed Weezy, he lived with his mother Sonia and had been unable to hold down work.

This is why jails are always overcrowded. If they only kept people locked up for serious crimes (rape, murder, etc.) then there would be far less people in jail. 

Fine here will be more than enough for stealing  a Mountain Dew, Snickers bar and a Zebra Cake.

I am shoked with this story. 

Can’t believe that  our “law officers” have no any duty of care towards those who unable to care for themselves …

They just killed him…Period

A young black man arrested by police in Portsmouth, Virginia, has been found dead in jail after spending almost four months behind bars without bail for stealing groceries worth $5.

Jamycheal Mitchell, who had mental health problems, was discovered lying on the floor of his cell by guards early last Wednesday, according to authorities. While his body is still awaiting an autopsy, senior prison officials said his death was not being treated as suspicious.

“As of right now it is deemed ‘natural causes’,” Natasha Perry, the master jail officer at the Hampton Roads regional jail in Portsmouth, said of his death in an interview. Perry said there were no obvious outward signs of injury to the 24-year-old’s body. Portsmouth police are looking into the death.

Mitchell’s family said they believed he starved to death after refusing meals and medication at the jail, where he was being held on misdemeanour charges of petty larceny and trespassing. A clerk at Portsmouth district court said Mitchell was accused of stealing a bottle of Mountain Dew, a Snickers bar and a Zebra Cake worth a total of $5 from a 7-Eleven.

Officials said that after his arrest, Mitchell was taken to Portsmouth city jail, where he stayed for almost three weeks before being transferred across the city to the regional jail on 11 May.

Ten days after that, the court clerk said, Judge Morton Whitlow ruled Mitchell was not competent to stand trial and ordered that he be transferred to Eastern State hospital, a state-run mental health facility in Williamsburg, for treatment.

The clerk said that typically in such cases “we do an order to restore the defendant to competence, send it to the hospital, and when the hospital has a bed, we do a transportation order, and he’s taken to the hospital.” Whitlow reiterated the order on 31 July and was due to review the case again on 4 September, according to the clerk.

But the hospital said it had no vacancy and the 24-year-old was therefore detained in jail until his death on 19 August, according to Adams, Mitchell’s aunt, who said she had tried to assist the hospitalisation process herself but was left frustrated.

“He was just deteriorating so fast,” she said. “I kept calling the jail, but they said they couldn’t transfer him because there were no available beds. So I called Eastern State, too, and people there said they didn’t know anything about the request or not having bed availability.”

Officials from the court, the police department and the jail could not explain why Mitchell was not given the opportunity to be released on bail.

The 24-year-old had been housed alone in a regular jail cell comprising a bunk with a mattress, a toilet, a sink, a shelf and a slit-like window. She said she did not know the size of the cell and declined to estimate. (x)

Noodles (Mamo x OC)

KBTBB/SITS crossover. 
Nagi befriends OC while she is working as on-call chef at Hotel Tres Spades. Mamo gets jealous because Nagi likes to call her at all hours. 

The day was hot and the hours had been long so far. Eisuke had been pulling strings for weeks to ensure that Revance, the huge boyband that were rising through the charts were satisfactorily waited on as they stayed at the Tres Spades Hotel. I had been drafted in to work as a waitress, offering my skills at cooking, hostessing and baking cakes for the singers as they stayed in the executive suites on floor down from the penthouse. I had been on call twenty-four-seven, and though so far the strangest request had been for caramel bars at four in the morning, I was not particularly looking forward to another call at that time but I had had my pager with me in bed ready to answer anything should they require me.

Mamo had been pissed off at the long hours that I had been working, the lack of intimate time between us being a serious drain on him. He loved knowing that there was food on the table when he came home, and that his woman would be there to give him all the attention he needed when he came through the door. I didn’t mind it, to be quite frank - working as the penthouse and VIP’s personal chef was an enjoyable, if exhausting job, and working out of the penthouse gave me plenty of time to relax in my downtime. Besides, I rather enjoyed being Mamo’s woman, looked after, given affection and treated well, when he could muster up the energy. He was sat, now, playing on the Penthouse’s PS4 with Baba, acting like a teenager as he punched him in the arm, argued with him over who was ahead, and generally messed around.

“Hey, kid, where are you going?” He didn’t even look up from the game as he stilled me in the doorway.

“I got paged by one of the band,” I smiled, “I’ll be back in a half an hour.”

“What if I page you? Will you come back sooner?”

“Eisuke would have my head.” I replied, crossing the room and gently fluffing at his hair. “Play nice with Micchan and I will be back in a little while, puppy.” Quickly, I tilted his head up to meet mine and I kissed him gently, dragging my tongue over his bottom lip. When he drew away, his cheeks were flamed red and I smiled, lightly nuzzling him as he cast his eyes down at the floor.

“…’m not a dog,” he huffed softly, but he was smiling as he turned back to his game. “I love you,” he called as I pushed the door open, and I turned to look at him, smiling broadly.

“I love you too, Mamo.”

Kingsman fandom we need to have a talk. See. It’s like this. In the train scene. He says “fuck you”, NOT “fuck yeah”. I know this, because it’s what the subtitles say as well. It’s a pretty distinct difference, alright? Not interchangeable.
