industrial shop


{5/100 days of productivity} | I feel really inactive when it comes to making original content, but anyways today was the first time i took public transportation to someplace other than manhattan, and it was stressful. I dropped by this cute cafe two days in a row, and i still can’t get enough tbh 

Please fire me. I’ve started working as a waiter 4 years ago with no experience at all. After 3 years I wanted to learn to draw on coffee. It took me 1 year to learn everything from YouTube, but now I can make some really good latte art, and I love it.

Then one day my boss told that I’m not allowed to do any latte art because this is not what other coffeo shops have, so neither will we. Isn’t it better when your worker wants to be better? Isn’t it better that you have something that others in coffee shops don’t have? 

It is our duty now to begin to lay the plans and determine the strategy for the winning of a lasting peace and the establishment of an American standard of living higher than ever before known. We cannot be content, no matter how high that general standard of living may be, if some fraction of our people—whether it be one-third or one-fifth or one-tenth—is ill-fed, ill-clothed, ill-housed, and insecure.

This Republic had its beginning, and grew to its present strength, under the protection of certain inalienable political rights—among them the right of free speech, free press, free worship, trial by jury, freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures. They were our rights to life and liberty.

As our nation has grown in size and stature, however—as our industrial economy expanded—these political rights proved inadequate to assure us equality in the pursuit of happiness.

We have come to a clear realization of the fact that true individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. “Necessitous men are not free men.” People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.

In our day these economic truths have become accepted as self-evident. We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights under which a new basis of security and prosperity can be established for all—regardless of station, race, or creed.

Among these are:

  • The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation;
  • The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;
  • The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living;
  • The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;
  • The right of every family to a decent home;
  • The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;
  • The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment;
  • The right to a good education.
  • All of these rights spell security. And after this war is won we must be prepared to move forward, in the implementation of these rights, to new goals of human happiness and well-being.

America’s own rightful place in the world depends in large part upon how fully these and similar rights have been carried into practice for all our citizens. For unless there is security here at home there cannot be lasting peace in the world.

Mr Thesassygandalf got me a present *-*


“Hi, Miss Potts, this is Steve, I would like to ask you if Stark Industries starts a coffee shop recently? Yes, Tony said he you asked him to drink each and every kind of coffee, which is more than ten cups, to be sold in the chain coffee stores named Starkbucks…”

Tony: *runs away*

Starkbucks™ again!! :D I swear I will drink at least three cups of coffee if there is a Starkbucks heehee. And Tony, just don’t think you can lie to Steve and outrun a super soldier. You would regret it.

(Why Tony is so cute I just can’t *cries*)

Ideal Careers Based On Your Zodiac Sign -- Virgo

Virgo - August 23 - September 22

Virgo—ever the perfectionist and ever at the service of others. A natural follower, you’re compassionate and considerate and you take direction well. As a boss, you’re practical and protective, while demanding the best from others. You have a tendency to be hard on yourself—harder than anyone else—so you need to be reminded by others not to get lost in the details every once in awhile. You’re basically the ideal employee.

Ideal careers: Virgos have amazing memories and their perfectionism means they deal well with mass amounts of information and know what to do when emotions run high. They do extremely well in the service and care industries—as servers, running shops, working the front desk, and as therapists—while they also excel at anything that requires mass amounts of research or stats—think fact-checker and editor, technician, translator, or detective.



This is as close to minimalist as my designs get.  Four pulley wheels but they also look like wheel rims, feeding down a length of chain.  I wracked my brain trying to figure out a way to make this one move - couldn’t do it so it’s fixed.  The wheels are bolted down and the chain length is attached to the wheels.  It’s all attached to a vintage brass wire hanger on a rollo link copper chain. I like using the three main metal tones, copper, gold and silver in a single piece so it can be worn with any other jewelry metals.

It’s mechanical that’s a little bit distressed designed to be worn high on the neck so there is room for the tiny round brass drop weight to move with the body. It’s US$75 plus postage ($7) in my Etsy shop.

Please fire me. I work as a cashier at a local supermarket where we have a campaign that we hand out a small sticker for every 5 dollars our customers shop for. The customers collect the stickers in a booklet which the customer then hands in, in order to get nice silverware and chef knives and such,

The first 10 customers rejected my offer to give them stickers by laughing at me. The eleventh customer had a big grin on her face and told me she would love to get some stickers for every 5 dollar she shopped for. Turns out she had bought an entire new kitchen set for over 5000 dollars… I seriously had to close my cash register and count stickers for the rest of the day while the customer was humming and playing with her phone. When I was done she told me maybe her son would like to play with these.
California just became the first state to force pet stores to sell rescue animals only
California has become the first US state to ban the sale of animals from puppy mills. A new law signed on Friday means that pet stores are required to work with animal shelters or rescue operations if they want to sell dogs, cats or rabbits. Despite 36 cities across the state, including Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego, already having bans on mass breeding this is a landmark move in the campaign against large-scale operations that breed dogs for profit.

“Matt Bershadker, president and CEO of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, told Business Insider: ‘This landmark law breaks the puppy mill supply chain that pushes puppies into California pet stores and has allowed unscrupulous breeders to profit from abusive practices.’  But the pet shop industry responded to the ban by saying the changes remove important consumer protections.”  I’d like to know who represents the “pet shop industry” and who the “industry” includes, because they are the enemy.
