A little table to how to get rid of all that negative self-talk. We have to learn look at the good in situations too, instead of dwelling on things we can’t change- because you know what? We may not be able to change what is happening but we CAN change how we view it!

If you can name a system that is better than capitalism AND EXISTS, I will congratulate you.

Please explain your answer.

system: anarchosyndicalism

why: workers manage their own work and democratically control industry, people democratically decide how the products of their collective labor are distributed amongst society, prohibits people from living off of society’s wealth without contributing to create that wealth

existed: Spain 1936-39 and Ukraine 1921-23. it’s worth noting, though, that anarchosyndicalists established the first labor unions in many countries including china, japan, chile, and like a dozen others

and i mean the criterion that it has to exist is pretty unfair, seeing as how any time people try to abolish or even meaningfully alter capitalism, the capitalists of every nation rally together to destroy opposition to capitalism

If you want examples of this, see:

  • The tsarist White Army being funded by Britain, Japan, America, Greece, France, and Czechoslovakia as it tried to destroy the Russian workers’ movements
  • US intervention in Korea 1950-53
  • US intervention in Puerto Rico 1950
  • US intervention in Guatemala 1954
  • US intervention in Cuba 1955
  • US intervention in the Dominican Republic 1963
  • US intervention in Panama 1964
  • US intervention in Brazil 1964
  • US intervention in Vietnam 1964-75
  • US intervention in Uruguay 1976
  • US intervention in Argentina 1976
  • US intervention in El Salvador 1980
  • US intervention in Nicaragua 1981
  • US intervention in Colombia 1999
  • US intervention in Venezuela 2002
  • US intervention in Honduras 2009
  • US intervention in Colombia (again) 2009

aside from the fact that this list only contains actions by the us (every capitalist government conducts operations serving the interests of capital), to be clear, most of these weren’t even direct challenges to capitalism, they were attempts to reform it. so you can’t be like “lol well it doesn’t exist so nobody wants it” when literally like, whenever people try to create a non-capitalist society the arsenals of every capitalist state in the world are brought out against them.

~Some popular essential oil uses.

Always remember to perform a patch test when using essential oils, and to dilute in a carrier oil unless it is a skin-safe essential oil, such as rose,lavender, or chamomile.

One might try fredericks.com, especially the sale section.

Also hipsandcurves.com goes up to 4x and their selection isn’t crappy lazily-designed cami sets; they’ve got 2 for $49 bras, 3 for $26 panties, thigh highs and garters—they’re perfect and I’m gonna blow my entire paycheck on it

So if we wanted to watch some French animation, what films would you suggest?

the Triplets of Belleville is about an elderly woman searching for her son who was kidnapped in the middle of a Tour de France race. It’s largely free of dialogue, but the sound effects and such are wonderful. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature—it lost to Finding Nemo.

A Cat in Paris is about a young girl and her cat who discover mysteries in the course of one night. It was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Rango.

Persepolis is based on an autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi about her early life in Iran. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Ratatouille.

the Illusionist is about an aging magician and an imaginative young girl who form a father/daughter relationship. It was also nominated for a Best Animation Oscar, but lost to Toy Story 3.

The Rabbi’s Cat is a story about a cat who swallows a parrot and gains the ability to speak like a human. It is set in 1920’s Algeria.

Ernest & Celestine is the adorable story about a big bear and a little mouse who forge an unlikely friendship. It was also nominated for an Oscar in Best Animated Picture, but lost to Frozen.

Kirikou and the Sorceress is a story inspired by West African folklore that tells the story of Kirikou, a boy who was born with the ability to walk and talk, who saves his people from an evil witch. The film was popular enough to spawn sequels and a stage adaptation.

A Monster in Paris is a 3D animated musical film that is reaaaaalllly loosely based on the Phantom of the Opera. It’s set in 1910 and is about, surprisingly, a monster that lives in Paris, and his love for a young singer.

The King and the Mockingbird is an 80’s film about a cruel king titled Charles V + III = VIII + VIII = XVI, who is obsessed with a young shepherdess, and whose attempts to capture the young girl are thwarted by a mockingbird whose wife the King had previously killed.  

Those are probably the most famous of the feature length animated films.

But the animated short films are just as glorious. Here’s a compilation of a bunch of short films and I can link you to others as well. 

Sorry for the long answer but I just really love French animation.

To the man standing on the corner holding a sign that said “God hates gays,” I bet your God would have made Eve without a mouth and taught her how to spread her legs like a magazine that she will never ever ever be pretty enough to be in.

Sooner or later, you will realize that you are praying to your own shadow. That you are standing in front of mirrors and worshipping your own reflection.

Your God stole my God’s identity and I bet he’s been buying pieces of Heaven on eBay. The next time you bend your knees, the next time you bow your head, I want you to tell your God… that my God is looking for him.

Some of these are real good, gonna have to try them. 

I love this

For #7, add some scent to the water and it refreshes the air too. We used rose water cause our monsters didn’t like to smell like flowers.

I often stand in awe of the ingenuity of good parents. I salute you all.

The hammock thing seems dangerous but these people were destined to be engineers

Be super careful with #1. A lot of laundry baskets have sharp edges or can trap fingers.

i love that one of these is put sprinkles on everything because that’s so true. that still works on me now

White Peach-Lavender Soda
Makes about 4 to 6 servings (enough to fill a recycled 1-liter soda bottle)

1 cup water, plus more to fill the bottle
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons lavender flowers
1 pound very ripe white peaches
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Pinch salt
1/4 teaspoon champagne yeast or baker’s yeast

Need: one clean 1-liter plastic soda bottle with screw-on cap

Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan on the stovetop or in the microwave. Remove from heat and add the sugar and lavender flowers. Stir to dissolve to sugar. Let stand for 20 minutes to infuse the sugar water with lavender.
Wash and roughly chop the peaches. It is not necessary to peel them. Strain the lavender flowers and pour the infused sugar water over the fruit. Add the lemon juice and salt, and stir to combine. Let this stand for 10 minutes to macerate the fruit.
Working in batches, puree the peaches with the sugar-water in the food processor or blender. Strain the puree into a bowl, collecting as much juice as possible without forcing any solids through the strainer. You can also strain the juice through a flour sack towel or cheesecloth to yield a cleaner soda. You should end up with 1 1/2 to 2 cups concentrated fruit syrup.
 
At this point, you could stop, refrigerate the syrup, and add it to a glass of sparkling water to taste. To naturally carbonate the soda with yeast (you intrepid brewer you!), proceed onward.
Pour the juice into a clean 1-liter plastic soda bottle using a funnel (see note). Top off the bottle with water, leaving about an inch and a half of head room. Give it a taste and add more lemon juice or sugar if desired. The extra sugar will dissolve on its own.
Add the yeast. Screw on the cap and shake the bottle to dissolve and distribute the yeast. Let the bottle sit at room temperature out of direct sunlight for 12 to 48 hours. Exact fermentation time will depend on the temperature in the room. Check the bottle periodically; when it feels rock-solid with very little give, it’s ready.

Refrigerate overnight or for up to 2 weeks. Open very slowly over a sink to release the pressure gradually and avoid bubble-ups.
Notes: 
• Feel free to substitute white nectarines, yellow peaches, or yellow nectarines for the fruit in this recipe. I’m also feeling tempted to try plums. The color and flavor will be slightly different, but most definitely still very tasty.
• For a stronger lavender flavor, infuse the sugar water for a longer period of time. Taste periodically and strain the sugar water when it tastes good to you. Since using more lavender can quickly make foods taste soapy, this is a safer way of amping up the flavor.
• I recommend using champagne yeast over baker’s yeast whenever possible. It has a crisp and clean flavor that lets the fruit shine through, whereas baker’s yeast tends to make sodas taste yeasty. Not a terrible thing, and fine in a soda-craving pinch, but get some champagne yeast if you can. It’s sold at any homebrew supply store and online at places like Northern Brewer.
• The fruit mash left after straining makes a very good afternoon snack with yogurt.
• Sodas can also be bottled in glass or swing-top bottles, but it’s more difficult to tell when the sodas have fully carbonated. To do this safely, with every batch you bottle also fill one small plastic soda bottle to use as an indicator for when the sodas have finished carbonating. Refrigerate all of the bottles as soon as the plastic bottle is carbonated; never leave the glass bottles at room temperature once carbonated.
