hit stick

anonymous asked:

While countless homeless vets are currently sleeping under cardboard boxes, or waiting for life-saving care from the Department of Veterans Affairs, we learn that transgender military recruits now qualify for preferential coverage for sex change procedures that are scientifically unproven and extremely costly.

oh goodie, the old “homeless vets” card, thrown out by assholes who don’t give a single fuck about homeless vets or the VA, so lets review shall we?

at most 8.4 million, less as it happens then what the Secret Service is spending to keep Trump safe at Mar-a-lago, now literally none of that money can or will go to the VA or to any program to help homeless vets, this does not help homeless vets, if you care about homeless vets maybe you should lobby to really spent more money to help them rather than use them as a stick to hit people you don’t like with? Also you’ll be shocked to learn some of those homeless vets are trans! should we help homeless vets who are trans or not? also you realize that troops serving today will one day be vets? shouldn’t we be trying to set them up the best that we can so they’re not homeless vets in 10-20 years? isn’t part of what we offer people when they agree to get shot at, blow up and generally risk their lives for us the best medical treatment we can give them for whatever problems they have? and also to be treated with basic respect and not be treated like shit by civilian assholes on-line? “support the troops” 

My favorite Shady/Illegal tips

*If you don’t have a stamp, reverse your destination and return addresses. The post office will deliver it to the return address for free

*One bag of garbage from a McDonald’s dumpster has hundreds of receipts in it, each of which has a survey. Submit each one for lots of free food

*Holding a cell phone to your ear justifies loitering. This aids in public urination, dumpster diving, stalking, trespassing, etc

*If you’re going to plagiarize, plagiarize something in a foreign language. Use a translator and spend a few minutes touching up the results.

*If they have free refills, save your cup. Next time you eat there, your drink is free.

*A plastic coffee stir stick can fool any push in coin acceptor that loads the coins on edge. Just insert stir stick, push the mechanism forward until you feel the stick hit a bump, push the bump down with the stick and push the mech all the way in

*If you look like you know what you’re doing, no one will bother you.

*When lying, always include something slightly embarrassing, or something that makes you look bad, as part of your story. It’s not only going to disarm their skepticism (admitting to something embarrassing gives an impression of humility), but even if they remain skeptical, they’ll be left wondering why you would make something up that you’d rather keep secret if it were true

*Using Clorox or any bleach will turn the red/pink liquid detection dot on electronic devices back to white so they replace them under warranty

* “A drug dealer in DC taught me to pick my nose if the police are staring at me. No one picks their nose if they think someone is watching them, so it’s the ultimate way of being nonchalant.”

* "I learned that you can get into almost any special event by wearing a chef coat. Even just carrying one and walking like you know where you’re going will work every time. Most people don’t want to look stupid by asking you who you are.“ 

* "My go to missing work call was never "I’m sick”, it was “Family problems”. They never questioned it, it’s vague enough and embarrassing enough that nobody ever asks.“ 

*As part of the employee training at Target, they teach you that if a customer argues over a price, and the full price is under $20, to just give it to them for whatever price they claim. It’s cheaper for the company to move on to the next customer than to call in a price check.

*Put a rolled up sock in the change slot on a vending machine, come back back 4 days later….and pull sock….you will be 6-ish dollars richer.

*If it’s a small lie, like who farted or who put the empty milk carton in the fridge, I’ll tell a terrible lie. I’ll not be able to hold a straight face, contradict myself, basically suck at lying.Now everyone I know thinks I can’t tell a lie to save my life. So when I really need a big lie, I nail it every time. No one ever suspects me when I lie straight faced.

*Bring crutches to an airport. Bypass every line (including boarding) and you are chauffeured to your gate the second you pass through security.

*Make up a secret to share with someone- they may open up and share far more valuable real secrets.

*Here’s a classic. Drive over to your 7/11 of choice. Fill up a Slurpee and drop some candy bars in that bitch. Make sure the candy bars aren’t showing. Cover the Slurpee and pay for it. Free Snickers bitch.

*I tell everyone i’ve never done any drugs. Suddenly everyone offers me cocaine, ecstasy, pot, lsd. I think i’ve had $200 worth of drugs each weekend for free.Same with liquor. "Im not drinking tonight” BOOM! Everyone gives me booze. Its like everyone wants to break your integrity as soon as you tell them you are not doing whatever they are doing.

*If you need to cash from an ATM and its not a large amount, buy a 5 cent piece of gum from a gas station that has the cash back option. Its cheaper than a $3 charge

*Act less intelligent than you really are. Acting stupid can get you out of some tricky situations. Feigning ignorance is way better than admitting you knew better but did it anyway. My old man used to say ‘It is easier to beg forgiveness than ask for permission’…sometimes it’s true.

*Every time I fly, when I land I’ll pen a little complaint to the airline that flew me. You know, I’ll come up with something like “oh, they denied me a drink! Oh, the food wasn’t vegetarian!” Whatever miscellaneous hogwash potpourri comes to my crazy brain. And like clockwork, within a business day, they’re reimbursing me with a $50 voucher, a $100 voucher, I can sell that on the secondary market.

*I’ve always had a lot of success in shutting nosy people up by blaming any personal issue on allergies. Crying from a panic attack? Allergies giving me puffy eyes. What’s that mysterious pill I’m taking? Allergy meds. Why am I acting spaced out/hungover/tired? Allergies meds making me drowsy.

*If you really wanna get away with some shit, buy a reflective vest, a white hard hat, and a clipboard. You can go ANYWHERE.

We blindfolded 15 homophobes and asked them to hit piñatas with a stick. The piñatas were actually deadly Asian giant hornet nests. What happens next will warm your heart.

Hey who want’s a headcanon about Genji? No one? Too bad!

Okay so I hc that Genji had a bunch of piercings when he was younger but not that he’s a cyborg he doesn’t/cant wear the jewellery. So a group (spearheaded by Hana) go out and buy him a bunch of those kids stick on earings and he’s not crying, you’re crying

( like this)

(And extra headcanon he takes Hanzo to get his haircut and pierced and picks out his jewellery because he knows what he’s doing)

me: tries to express my wants to my s/o
my bpd, hitting me with a stick: MANIPULATIVE MANIPULATIVE MANIPULATIVE MANIPULATIVE MANIPUL-

alright, SO 

  • sana made noora trip with her foot
  • noora landed on vilde 
  • noora grabbed onto vilde’s pearl necklace
  • vilde’s pearl necklace broke 
  • the pearls rolled down the flight of stairs 
  • eva was going down that flight of stairs
  • the pealrs made eva trip
  • which made eva accidentally drop her drink on chris
  • which made chris, who was holding a selfie stick, hit even’s nose with said selfie stick
  • even’s nose started bleeding 
  • even and isak squatted to the ground as even’s nose bled

The Cube? Yeah, it runs Doom. Or at least, can show it.

“The Cube” is the name for Deadmau5′s frankly ridiculous DJ stand/stage setup, which basically consists of a giant three-sided LED display on motors for motion control, with Deadmau5 sitting on top doing whatever it is Deadmau5 does. Look, I’m old and set in my ways, alright? If you can’t strum it or hit it with a stick, I don’t know how music is made with it. It just happens. Like babies.

Anyhoo, speaking of babies, recently Mau5 commissioned a little babby version of The Cube, dubbed “Cube Lite”, that’s largely identical to the real thing, just shrunk down to about three feet tall so he can work on his light show from the comfort of his studio, and not, like, an aircraft hangar or something.

It can do other things too, as one Twitter wit managed to convince Mau5 to demonstrate. Click the link for video! I couldn’t embed it or download it to repost here, because Twitter be cray.

Thanks to @ask-travisthefatlazyauthor and @scrubdowner for submitting this!

hmm, so I’ve been thinking a little bit about the trailer, as one does, and a thought hit me all of a sudden. see, I’ve been looking at the events that happen in the trailer as things that all need to happen still – but what if they simply symbolize events that have already taken place?

what if Sana tripping Noora, which leads to her falling, isn’t something Noora will be doing this season but something she’s already done – for William, after the all changing conversation between her and Sana in the window sill during season two. what if Noora’s fall leading to Vilde’s pearls breaking isn’t something that will happen this season, but something that’s already happened – when Noora disregarded Vilde’s feelings for William entirely and pursued him anyway, and then decided to follow Sana’s advice and tell Vilde about her and William. what if Isak standing by Even, putting his hand on his cheek and very openly loving him isn’t something that’s necessarily going to play a big part this season, but rather, symbolizes something that’s already happened – the last episodes of season three, during which Isak decided to stand by Even, where everyone could see, after all the important conversations he’s had about exactly that with Sana. what if Even being hit by a selfie stick doesn’t symbolize something that hasn’t happened yet, but something that already has – the things he wrote on the Facebook wall when he was still going to Elvebakken, because of the people Sana’s brother hangs out with, because of Sana’s religion, too.

what if we’re waiting for the first domino to fall, when it has already fallen a long, long time ago, and only now, is Sana, and everyone else going to have to deal with the consequences.

AN: This was an anon request for a Soulmate AU where you didn’t see colors until you met your soulmate. I hope I did this justice because Soulmate AU’s are my FAVORITE. Love ya’ll, let me know what you think!

Title taken from Halsey’s Colors. The Veselka and Space Billiards are real places in NYC. You’re welcome.


If there was anything you wanted more in life, it was to meet your soulmate. As strange as it sounds, meeting your soulmate was a top priority in everyone’s life, because you needed to meet them in order to see color. The world was just a drab mixture of blacks and greys before that. Your mother had explained it to you once when you were small, that color would wash over your vision slowly, dull and drab, but still there. It was only when you got to know them more that the colors would become brighter, streaks of red and blue and yellow lighting up the world in full HD.
