this is what i just picked up from the grocery store. it cost $32. Thirty. two. dollars. for 1 pineapple, 2 bags of grapes, a small container of raspberries, 1 soft drink and 2/$1 nuts….
do you know how much junk food i could have for $32? do you have any clue how much McDonald’s you can get for $32?
stop shaming fat people poorer than you or people poorer than you in general for not eating healthier. stop lying about how cheap it is or how it’s comparable to fast food. just stop.
when I’m buying food while broke (which is…always, now) the caloric mass per dollar is absolutely a factor in what I buy. How long can I run my body off the calories in this item of food vs. what it costs.
just take his word for it
just pointing out that in this gif
snow looks like a terrifing fuckin santa claus oh my g od

Toho lawyers closing in like
They’re taking their sweet time, then. I actually toured the brewery that makes that beer with my ex-girlfriend and this was available there at that time—in May of 2013.
Toho usually doesn’t take over a year to swoop in, so either they don’t know or they don’t care.
Giant Condor. He’d go straight for that extensive and ridiculous neck on the Giant Claw. Even if things started to go south the GIANT KAIJU POSSE would show up (Giant Octopus and Giant Sea Snake) and beat the crap out of him.
You’re forgetting one thing: The Giant Claw is surrounded by an Anti-Matter Shield that cannot be penetrated. The Giant Condor would be vaporized on impact.
And people say the NECA sculpt isn’t good… ψ(｀∇´)ψ
Welp, you just melted my face off with awesome.

Today, September 8th, is the 60th birthday of Ruby Nell Bridges - a woman who, being the first black child to attend an all-white school in New Orleans in 1960, underwent a traumatizing ordeal that came to signify the deeply troubled state of race relations in America.
On her first day of school at William Frantz Elementary School, during a 1997 NewsHour interview Bridges recalled that she was perplexed by the site that befell, thinking that it was some sort of Mardi Gras celebration:
"Driving up I could see the crowd, but living in New Orleans, I actually thought it was Mardi Gras. There was a large crowd of people outside of the school. They were throwing things and shouting, and that sort of goes on in New Orleans at Mardi Gras.”
Only six-years-old at the time, little Ruby had to deal with a slew of disgusting and violent harassment, beginning with threats of violence that prompted then President Eisenhower to dispatch U.S Marshals as her official escorts, to teachers refusing to teach her and a woman who put a black baby doll in a coffin and demonstrated outside the school in protest of Ruby’s presence there. This particular ordeal had a profound effect on young Ruby who said that it “scared me more than the nasty things people screamed at us.”
Only one teacher, Barbara Henry, would teach Ruby and did so for over a year with Ruby being the only pupil in her class.
The Bridges family suffered greatly for their brave decision. Her father lost his job, they were barred from shopping at their local grocery store, her grandparents, who were sharecroppers, were forcibly removed from their land, not to mention the psychological effect this entire ordeal had on her family. There were, however, members of their community - both black and white - who gathered behind the Bridges family in a show of support, including providing her father with a new job and taking turns to babysit Ruby.
Part of her experience was immortalized in a 1964 Norman Rockwell painting, pictured above, titled The Problem We All Live With. Her entire story was made into a TV movie released in 1998.
Today, still living in New Orleans, Briges works as an activist, who has spoken at TEDx, and is now chair of the Ruby Bridges Foundation.
1960. My mother’s time. This is literally one generation ago. And where have we gone from this? Not very far.
