I’m on season 3 of Breaking Bad
And how anyone can want anything but Walt’s throat cut open with a rusty meat cleaver is beyond me.
It’s Finals week!
Which means it’s time for my brain to go curl up in a ball in a corner somewhere and for me to desperately try to rouse it to do SOMETHING ANYTHING WAKE UP AND STUDY AND DO STUFF and it will resolutely refuse and demand a nap or a Netflix binge.

I saw on the surveymonkey responses that the two of you are willing to drive the SUV’s- which is great because we needed two more drivers! I wanted to know if either of you are night-owls or comfortable with driving in the snow, or both! I just think it’d be easier if we could schedule first shift ( possible driving from 12-6 am) or second shift (driving in the snow from6am-12pm). For instance: I am definitely a morning person so I would prefer the second shift.
We are still waiting on one more person to respond to the survey. We shall see if she is willing to drive, which may shorten our shifts!
Let me know~”
WHAT THE FUCK I DID NOT AGREE TO DRIVE FOR SIX STRAIGHT HOURS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GODDAMN NIGHT.
Gov. Nathan Deal (R-GA) was elected in 2010. He is running for re-election in 2014. His inclusion stems from: (1) using his gubernatorial campaign to benefit his daughter-in-law; (2) using his office to benefit a business partner; (3) using his office to benefit a top donor; (4) arranging a taxpayer-funded job for a political foe; and (5) obstructing ethics investigations into his business dealings.
Gov. Deal was previously included in CREW’s 2009 Most Corrupt report. The report cited the way then-Rep. Deal and his top aide, Chris Riley, blurred the line between Rep. Deal’s private business interests and his official duties, using public resources to attempt to influence other public officials to benefit his private affairs. The pattern continued during his successful 2010 campaign for governor and his term in office.
And he will still likely beat Jason Carter next year, because we sure love scumbags here. (See: Gingrich, Newt; Chambliss, Saxby; Gingrey, Phil; Broun, Paul)
Men want what they want.
So much of our culture caters to giving men what they want. A high school student invites model Kate Upton to attend his prom, and he’s congratulated for his audacity. A male fan at a Beyoncé concert reaches up to the stage to slap her ass because her ass is there, her ass is magnificent, and he wants to feel it. The science fiction fandom community is once again having a heated discussion, across the Internet, about the ongoing problem of sexual harassment at conventions — countless women are telling all manner of stories about how, without their consent, they are groped, ogled, lured into hotel rooms under false pretenses, physically lifted off the ground, and more.
But men want what they want. We should all lighten up.
It’s hard not to feel humorless as a woman and a feminist, to recognize misogyny in so many forms, some great and some small, and know you’re not imagining things. It’s hard to be told to lighten up because if you lighten up any more, you’re going to float the fuck away. The problem is not that one of these things is happening, it’s that they are all happening, concurrently and constantly.
These are just songs. They are just jokes. They are just movies. It’s just a hug. They’re just breasts. Smile, you’re beautiful. Can’t a man pay you a compliment? In truth, this is all a symptom of a much more virulent cultural sickness — one where women exist to satisfy the whims of men, one where a woman’s worth is consistently diminished or entirely ignored.

There is a serious dearth of White Christmas gifs.
If you are 35 or younger - and quite often, older - the advice of the old economy does not apply to you. You live in the post-employment economy, where corporations have decided not to pay people. Profits are still high. The money is still there. But not for you. You will work without a raise, benefits, or job security. Survival is now a laudable aspiration.
Quoted from Sarah Kendzior’s “Surviving the Post-Employment Economy"
Remember how we don’t need unions anymore?
