In this age, you can find an SD a lot of places. Let’s break this down for you. This post isn’t about the couple hundred per meet SDs, this is for the SDs that will actually sponsor you, offer you a monthly allowance and aren’t bedroom bandits.
Seeking Arrangements: This site is developing into men who feel “I don’t have that much money, but really want to fuck a 20 year old bare, but I can’t afford a hooker and/or I think they all have HIV.” (I’m an escort, most of these dudes can barely afford my hourly) If this is your MO, or you aren’t looking for a big payout for your time, and you are ready to compete with millions of other girls, this is for you.
Other sugar sites: a waste of time. SD4Me might have some redeeming qualities, cause I did have a guy who paid for my laptop from there, but there’s so many time wasters and its a badly set up site. Also many non-SA sites have very inactive guys, but you can’t see when they were last logged in until you pay or whatever. time/money sink.
Tinder: Most 40+ guys on tinder aren’t looking for an SB, mostly because they can’t afford it. Some are open to it but will bail on you. You can use a fake Facebook, if you’re trying to conceal your identity. Don’t ever try to get money for a relationship on the chat. never say sugar baby. Like I’ve said before, unless he offers up the money amount and everything, don’t push for it too early. He has a lot of girls who just want his money, don’t become one of them. Block guys as soon as they say their not interested in an arrangement, just block and move on. Find out if he actually has money buy doing research. The flashy BMW pic? He went to a car show once. Not real. Also flashy does not equal generous.
Other dating sites: YES.
GOLDEN RULE FOR USING NON SUGAR OUTLETS
If you’re looking for a Sugar Daddy and you’re not on a sugar website. Don't put it in your profile. Just don’t. Say you are interested in older men and yachting or fine dining or whatever, but don’t put arrangement in your profile.
(A short piece, inspired by Elsewhere University, based on the Ballad of Minepit Shaw)
The bellow of a brass hunting horn broke the chilly night air, echoed by the baying of hounds as Suzie and Kath sprinted across the building site waste ground in front of Pelham house. Suzie held her high heels in one hand, and a bottle of vodka which was not hers in the other, while Kath had dropped her shoes a few metres back, and clutched two bottles of what she had assumed were fancy coloured spirits. They shifted in their bottles against rhythm of Kath’s run.
“Fucking Pelham house!” Kath panted. “Party flats my arse!”
“Of course he’s a fucking Gent!” Suzie groaned in exasperation. “Of course he is!”
Neither of them risked a look behind them, but they both swore they heard thundering hooves and slobbering hounds. In their panic, they had made a bee-line for the muddy expanse where builders were already sinking the piles for the new Shaw House accomodation. Kath spotted a large bulldozer and grabbed Suzie’s shoulder, pulling her towards it. They ducked under it’s backhoe and pressed themselves against the shadows behind it.
They stood there holding their breath, hearing pad of paws against soft earth drawing closer. Suzie muttered and mumbled what sounded like prayers, fiddling in her purse for a packet of salt, or a bolt, or some little iron trinket. Kath leaned towards the edge of the bulldozer, about to risk a glance around, when a hand clamped on to her shoulder.
She was too startled to scream, but Suzie wasn’t, letting out a short, sharp squeak of terror. A man stood before them, dressed exactly like a campus security guard, except for the fact that every inch of clothing on his body was green. He wore a green cap, green shirt, green slacks, green boots, forest green hi-vis, even his maglite cast a pale green light over the two girls.
“Goodness, you’re in a mess aren’t you?” he said, almost off-hand, as though commenting on the weather.
Suzie looked fit to scream again, but Kath spoke first.
“Please, you have to help us. There’s a guy out there hunting us!” she said, her voice almost cracking with fear, both real and exaggerated.
“Sounds like Lord Pelham,” the green guard said with a little grimace. “A powerful lad and no mistake. Getting suspended would be the least of your troubles. You must’ve done something pretty bad to rile him like this.”
Kath frowned, shifting the bottles awkwardly in her hands.
“Well, okay. We did something pretty stupid. But please, we’ll do anything.”
Suzie shot Kath an appalled look, and Kath sighed.
“Alright, I’ll do anything.”
The green guard smiled without showing his teeth.
“Lucky for you I’m no friend of Lord Pelham. Although, it would certainly be nice to have some kind of recompense for my magnanimity….”
Suzie (a Biomed student) frowned, but Kath did Literature. She laid her bottles on the ground, and nodded for Suzie to do the same.
“Well, I’d say that’s an ample gift. Step this way.”
Kath and Suzie stepped forward, and plunged into absolute darkness. Kath felt her hip bump into something hard, like a metal table edge.
“Just my little home. You’ll pardon me keeping it dark, but power bills are atrocious for my thousand crystal chandeliers,” came the voice of the green guard.
Suzie felt along the table edge and hopped up on to it, sitting on the edge.
“Not much in the way of furniture,” she said, shifting uncomfortably.
“I apologise,” came the guard’s voice. “I’ll admit that solid gold furniture inlaid with precious stones tends to be a little hard on the backside. I’ve only arrived recently, and haven’t had time to unload my thousand silk cushions.”
Suzie and Kath were silent for a moment. Kath ran her hand over the tabletop, feeling little lumps and bumps across its surface.
“It can’t really be gold, can it?” came Suzie’s voice.
“Even if it isn’t,” said the guard, “you’re a long way away from Lord Pelham, aren’t you?”
Kath didn’t respond. She supposed she owed him that much. She lay down on the table and closed her eyes, for all the difference it made in the dark.
When light came, it was harsh and hard. A bright autumnal morning dawned across the campus, bringing a cold breeze that blew across Kath’s sleeveless arms. She leaned up and looked around, and saw where she was. Then she let out a laugh.
She and Suzie had tumbled in the night and fallen into one of the pilings for Shaw House. She’d spent the night lying at the bottom of a muddy hole on a half-buried I-beam, and she could already feel the bruises where its rivets had dug into her. Suzie roused herself beside her, mumbling darkly about a headache.
At the top of the piling pit, a human head in a hard hat shouted down to them.
“Oh thank God!” it said. “I thought you were dead!”
“No!” Kath shouted up, smiling. “Although my friend may wish she was.”
* * *
It wasn’t until later that Kath got back to her room. On her desk was a note dotted with rhinestones and written in glittery green gel-pen.
It simply read, “Whether he was a security guard or a Gentleman, remember: ‘there’s more things told than are true, and more things true than are told’.”
At the bottom it had been signed by a ‘Lord Shaw’, in long looping handwriting.
In 1980, Congress established Superfund, a federal program tasked with cleaning up sites contaminated with pollutants and hazardous waste. Many of these sites now have housing developments on or around them, because what could possibly go wrong with that?
As you might have guessed, many, many things could go wrong with that. At the West Calumet Housing Complex in East Chicago, signs are posted warning residents of the 109-building complex to stay the hell out of the dirt. Contaminated with arsenic and lead from a defunct factory, the EPA is racing to remediate the site and make it safe. In Brooklyn, homes lining the industrial waterfront are experiencing “vapor intrusion” – fumes rising from contaminated soil and groundwater carrying airborne pollution inside homes. Also in New York, a Halloween night rave – a legal one – was shut down by the fire department. The problem? Nobody realized the warehouse used for the rave was a toxic site that was flooding party-goers’ bodies with harmful chemical substances (of the non-recreational variety).
What are the effects of living on or near a seething pool of toxic sludge? That’s not an easy answer to give, and not just because the EPA isn’t super eager to divulge just how deeply into shit we’ve waded.

Whether it’s indigenous water protectors or led-poisoned black children, communities of color are disproportionately impacted by the effects of environmental degradation. While the oppressors in power harm & exploit the Earth and it’s inhabitants, we have & continue to fight on the frontline of the struggle but we are not always heard and this needs to change. In an effort to center the importance of our voices, Muchacha Fanzine’s “Madre Tierra” (Mother Earth) invites people of color to share short stories, visual art, photography, comics, thoughts, poetry, rants, doodles, and essays all related to environmental justice. Women, queer, transgender & non-binary folks of color are especially encouraged to submit their work.
Ya sea que se trate de protectores de agua indígenas o de niños negros envenenados con plomo, las comunidades de color son desproporcionadamente afectadas por los efectos de la degradación ambiental. Mientras los opresores en el poder dañan y explotan a la Tierra y sus habitantes, luchamos en las frontera de la lucha, pero no siempre somos escuchados y esto necesita cambiar. Con el objetivo de centrar la importancia de nuestras voces, Muchacha Fanzine’s “ Madre Tierra” invita a las personas de color a compartir cuentos, arte visual, fotografía, cómicos, pensamientos, poesía y ensayos relacionados con la justicia ambiental. Las mujeres, personas gay, transgeneros y personas no binarias son especialmente alentados a presentar su trabajo.

🎨: “Mother Earth Nourish” by Malaysian artist Jennifer Mourin
Even though @bethgreenewarriorprincess has already covered this tweet (X), I wanted to add my thoughts, as I have received many asks about it. I am not concerned about this tweet. The account is not trolling. The Skybound account promoting Beth has been going on for two years. They even tweeted “Beth lives” on three separate occasions (X), and they are not the only source of promotion for Beth/Emily (X) (X) (X). I warned you guys that the promotion and seeding would become heavy in the back half. By tweeting that the person is Beth, TPTB are preparing for the reveal. No one is going to actually believe that Boots is Beth. Most people will think the account is joking. Once Beth does return, TPTB will be able to prove that her return has been the plan all along, rather than fan service. As Christy and @allatariel discovered, hardcore Beth fans (those that signed the petition), make up less than one percent of the show’s average viewership (X). The network will also cut corners for its big programs in order to save money (X), so the network would not allow several of its related social media sites to waste time and materials in order to promote a dead girl.
You guys need to remember that this tweet exists as a part of a pattern. Repeat after me: The promotion of Beth is part of a two-year pattern. This isn’t one or two incidences; this is a marketing campaign. The marketing campaign also exists in context of the other Beth-stuff, such as her missing body and the missing spoilers, Emily not having panels, etc. Everything is interconnected.
I just saw your post about homemade toothpaste being unhealthy so I'm just wondering ow bad are the abrasive properties of baking soda and do you know a zero-waste alternative??
Sorry for the delay, Anon, I just got this message today!
Minerals are given a hardness rating using something called the Mohs hardness scale, which goes from 1 (talc) and 10 (diamond). The harder a substance is, the more difficult it is to scratch. Tooth enamel is around 5, and baking soda is 2.5; a lot of zero waste and natural health sites have used this fact to say that baking soda is not capable of scratching teeth.
However, softer substances can scratch harder ones. For a non-dental example: iron and steel have a hardness of approximately 4 while glass is 5–despite being harder, glass is easily scratched by iron, it’s just that the iron is damaged more than the glass is in the exchange.
Baking soda crystals are less abrasive than steel, obviously, but have been shown to cause small abrasions over long-term use, which is why a number of medical professionals caution against brushing with baking soda. These tiny grooves provide the perfect habitat for bacteria to grow, and can make you more susceptible to cavities further down the line.
On the other side of the coin, a number of commercial toothpastes contain silica (hardness 7), and have been known for at least a decade to abrade enamel, the results of which are worsened by regularly drinking acidic beverages (this study has a lot of good information for those interested in reading more about the above).
The take home message of the dental literature I’ve read (disclaimer: I’m not a dentist nor a doctor, not giving anyone medical/dental advice) is that baking soda is less abrasive than some commercial toothpastes, but still too abrasive to be using on a daily basis. It has been shown to be good at removing plaque, but this is a once a month rather than daily type of requirement.
What I do personally is brush with water daily, and dissolve baking soda in a glass of water to make a mouthwash. This gives you the pH-balancing action of the baking soda while getting rid of the abrasion. I do brush with baking soda, but only once a month to once per two months, depending on whether or not I see plaque buildup. This is actually how old-fashioned tooth powders were used a century ago, on an as-needed basis. They have become popular again, but people have forgotten how to use them (and there are plenty of 1950′s and before patents and papers demonstrating their effectiveness when used in this fashion).
imagine if like every so often, Soundwave lures Starscream around the ship/base/whatever and they always end up at a waste disposal site and Starscream’s like “why are were here Soundwave” and Soundwave just goes “it’s my turn to take out the trash” and they squabble like children while Soundwave tries to shove Starscream headfirst into the bin/compactor thingy and Megatron has to come seperate them
Initially your hate-boner was funny but it’s just not anymore. I disagreed with you on “how crazy” it was for an LGBT organization to not want Chick-fil-a to be on campus. They filed a motion, they lost, and they moved on with their lives. Which is how things are supposed to happen. That’s what a healthy environment looked like.
“Yeah, we brought it to a vote and we lost. We don’t like the fact that we lost, but it happened” is literally the entirety of the story.
Look, I get it. You have a history of finding my posts and going through them to start shit, even though you don’t follow me. You’ve been reblogging my shit for months, which was particularly annoying because on your old blog you were shadow-banned and I’d just randomly get hate mail and mocking notifications seemingly out of nowhere.
It happens. You’ve called me immoral because I lobbied not through cash but through grass-roots activism for a non-profit that helped establish scholarships for the poor, clean up nuclear waste sites, and help people represent themselves in Civil Court when they couldn’t afford legal aids.
For some reason you ask me to defend feminist talking points
But go bother someone else. I’m tired of regularly getting emails and notifications from someone who doesn’t read what I’m saying and talks shit. I’m tired of being tagged and notified because dumbasses get a bug up their ass over someone who doesn’t agree with them. You were amusing for a while but now I’m just seeing your petty and it’s making me hurt for you.
It’s been enough time. Fuel your rage-boner another of your betters somewhere else.
I’ve had enough of poor salty men wasting my time then calling me just a ‘stupid slut’ when I refuse to meet with them for 2 hours of sex for £80.
They’re on a sugar daddy website and are looking for escorts! They just want sex, heck I’ve come across a man on there boasting how he’s never paid out because 'there’s girls just wanting to be fucked on here’ !!!!
Please can we team together as a force and say something to SA!
We need to be given the option to have them kicked of the site for wasting everyone’s time if they get so many complaints/votes against them!
Please can we at least try cause it’s really grinding me down atm. I feel like I’m just going on there to argue.
BSD Novel: Dazai Osamu and the Dark Era (Chapter 2, Part 6)
This is by far my favourite part to translate thus far and I hope you will think the same too! Much thanks goes to @nakaharachuyaa and @mlntyoonqi for their speedy proofreading as well as @fukasenanairo for the kanji help!
After casting a salt circle, what would you do with the salt after? Like, how would someone properly dispose of it
It really depends on the type and amount of salt that you have. From what I’ve read, rock salt should be taken to a waste management site, no matter the quantity. Leftover table salt (the finely ground stuff you buy in a weird looking cylinder from the grocery store) can usually be repurposed for a number of things or washed down the drain in small amounts. If you have a lot of salt, like more than a tablespoon, it really should be handled by a waste management site so it does not add to the already growing problem of the
salinification of ground water.
