The Rowdy 3 gang! 💙⚡
I think, they are hungry.

(and yeah, i now they don’t have vampire teeth in the show, but i wanted to draw them with it!)




if you are going to do historical inaccuracy, then go big. Just take it to a whole ‘nother level.

I mean like Knight’s Tale “chanting Queen at the jousting tournament ‘foxy lady’” levels of anachronism. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters with Hansel injecting himself with insulin and Gretel wielding a multiple-shot crossbow levels of anachronism. Go for Blazing Saddles, Blackadder, Jack of All Trades, Connecticut Yankee levels of anachronism

you either have to play by the rules or throw out the book.

Go full on Xena. All of history happened at the same time. Get your legs broken by Caesar and find out Lao Tzu didn’t write that book, his wife did, and she hitting on you…all 10 years before you go meet up with Helen at Troy. Fight with Beowulf and commission Sappho within a few months of each other. Abraham and Issac? Only like 2 years before Jesus. Invent CPR and the kite during the bronze age. Watch your gal pal teach Homer how to be a better bard. Have a fucking battle of the bands in Ancient Greece. TIME IS MEANINGLESS.

Go Full On Xena

Amazon Patents Wristband to Track Hand Movements of Warehouse Employees






What Amazon will probably say to justify this later:It’s so we can tell if one of our staff is stealing

What the article says it’s for:It vibrates or shocks employees if they sort the packaging wrong

What Amazon’s ulterior motive probably is: We can track the pace of their work and if they’re taking a few seconds too long or using their hands to wipe their sweaty brows, we bring it up at a performance review and will fire them for it. But remember that if you whine about this or demand better conditions/wages, we’ll just replace you with robots, so keep working you mindless and invasively-monitored drones

what the fuck kind of dystopian bullshit

OKAY SO normally I would save my comments for the tags but I have first hand experience working at an Amazon warehouse, and I just have some feelings about this especially as a former employee. They paid decently higher than other places I had worked, so I thought it would be worth it. It is not (I made 11/hr before taxes so like not even that much tbh). On the first day of training we were shown the robots. It was presented in a way that was like “wow look how cool these are ps if you fuck up always remember that you are replaceable with one of these.” Then we were taught how to sort packages. I’m a very very petite person, and there were some boxes that I could barely lift on my own but the supervisors basically stood around and watched as I struggled several feet with a box bigger than myself. It was only the other ‘lower level’ warehouse workers who helped, and one girl was the same size as me. We had legally mandated breaks, which they would often send us late to and call us back early from. On top of all this general poor treatment, if it was seeming too slow (this happened every single day before the big package rush btw) they’d send tons of people home so that they wouldn’t have to pay them. Of course then everyone left behind was stuck dealing with the rush that inevitably happened, but again management didn’t care because it saved them money to pay less people for more work. I got scolded and yelled at on the daily for not working fast enough or because I was carrying only one box at a time, even if it was a massive one. We were judged based on number of boxes scanned per hour, and I was like super slow at maybe 100 an hour I think?? Don’t really remember but most people did 200+ and so I got in trouble a lot. Anyway, TLDR, Amazon fucking sucks and they treat employees like garbage so this is definitely believable imho as a way to further dehumanize and control their workers.

This is why we unionize.

Look, folks.  I get how scary unionizing and strikes can be.  I’ve both been involved in unions and refused to cross pickets in my life.  Back when we had to fight this war the first time, violence regularly broke out against workers striking.  Even here where I live.

But that’s what we need to do.  It’s our turn to organize and fight for our rights. This is how we reclaim the country that has increasingly swung backwards to the days of moguls and dynasties.

We’ve been here before.  No kidding.  This?  This is nothing new.  Even 45, corrupt moron rich man, is nothing new in this world.  Bezos, mistreatment of workers, brutal hours and poor pay is nothing new.  Think industrial revolution.

The way we won then was by coming together and unionizing.  It was organizing and unfortunately, it was risking too. But don’t ever forget, we outnumber them.  We outnumber them even with the militarized police and even with their money, and somewhere deep down, they sure as hell know it.

Join a union.  Organize your workplace.  Fight back.  The robots are coming anyway, we might as well organize now so we’re ready to support each other and hold our politicians feet to the fires.

I’m a part of a union and I love it.

Here’s a feminist issue and hey, whaddaya know? Almost no western feminists talking about it. Imagine that.






I hope that she is released alive and safe and that there will be a day when things like this dont happen. This sort of treatment is unjust and oppressive.


Damn I hope she is safe

Serious courage

I’m not Muslim but this is quite clearly why we need to listen to non white women on this. Plenty of people who live in the West and wear the hijab have outright said they do not feel they are oppressed, while women in countries where it is law. often do feel oppressed by it. It doesn’t mean one size fits all rules should apply. Listening to people should not be this hard.



when i see those posts about like “what division of starfleet would you be” i’m like…. if the star trek universe was real i would just fuckin live on earth in a little house and chill out in post-scarcity utopia i’m not gonna go to space and DIE

Thin blue line on fb got hacked so im having a great day so far




i foun d my old wallet in the drawer next to my bed and it had $400 in it im having a heart attack

reblog the aquabats! wallet of good fortune & you’ll b blessed w/ good fortune


Let me be honest about Paisley.

I didn’t want her at first. She annoyed me on every level. I thought she was the dumbest dog I’d ever seen, and I’ve known some really hard to train animals.

I used to joke that it was lucky she was so cute and cuddly or she’d have nothing going for her.

But then I changed how I tried to train her. It was some post about learning disabilities and how people learn differently and it clicked for me. But only after a disgustingly long time. I should have known better. I should have known it sooner.

Triton is a working breed. He aims to please. He enjoys learning. He picked up four languages, hand signals, finger snaps, and whistle commands by 2. He trained himself to stop me from hurting myself while I was sleep walking. Triton is a fucking genius.

Paisley took six months to learn to lay down. She still struggles with stay.

Paisley is a weird mix of breeds. She’s stubborn. She’s reward oriented. She needs to be exercised first. But she’s loyal. Despite our rocky start she picked me as her human. She will lay on me when I’m sad or sick like she is going to crush the bad out of me.

I feel bad for the things I’ve said about her over the years. She just learns differently. But the stuff she likes to do? My videos today show she can be the best. How many dogs wait eagerly for their teeth to be brushed? Triton is hit or miss, he won’t let me every night. She won’t let me out of the bathroom until I brush hers.

She knows the sound of the cheese drawer means it’s learning time and tries so hard.

Basically, she’s a great dog and I love her.

And next time I get another dog, I’ll be a better owner because of her.

Please ignore my dirty bathroom to watch Paisley impatiently waiting for teethy brushin time. Such a good girl.
