No, I get sick too if I don’t eat my breakfast slowly enough. I think the importance of breakfast has less to do with energy (although I get hungry as fuck if I skip, I honestly don’t know how others do it) and more to do with your metabolism though.
I notice the photos don’t include breakfast. Perhaps this could say something about the importance of breakfast?
Hawaiiansquirrel put it really well, but of course the lecture police had to come in to ruin the fun.
The decision to drop the bombs in Japan was not racist bs. The decision to put asian americans in camps and let the germans or italians go free, however, was full of racist bullshit. I don’t agree with the idea of putting people into camps anyway, but the fact that they focused only on the Japanese even though Germany and Italy were America’s enemies as well at the time is something that shockingly get’s talked about very little. You can tell how uneducated SJWs are about WWII because they never use this information against white people even though it’s handed to them on a silver platter.
Yes, as horrible an atrocity as the atomic bombs were, they potentially saved thousands if not millions of Japanese and American lives.
You know what? I actually really like this one. This is the first new trend in a while that has made me feel anything other than “meh”
And yet fist full of yen has somehow stuck around

I don’t think my elementary school taught the George Washington cherry tree story as truth (or that he had wooden teeth for that matter). So I guess that’s one thing my public school system did right.
The “irregardless” thing makes me think of how big a deal it was when “funner” was put in the dictionary. I still get people telling me it’s not a real word though. Yeah, language, bitch!
I know that feel, mate
What’s that? A commercial that doesn’t use stereotypes taken straight out of the 50s?
Being funny is not a requirement for being a meme. It just has to have spread.
“Covering maybe a third of your tits”
Ok there’s barely even an inch of cleavage showing and that counts as 2/3rds of her boobs?
Holy shit I read that as “fucking” the first time too.
The Princess Bride? You mean the best movie ever made.

But you’re still ignoring my point that a lot of public schools set ridiculous rules that go beyond just having a “modest” dress code. Are shoulders and thighs really so offensive and distracting that they must be hidden from sight? Are these strict codes really necessary? One would think that what’s deemed appropriate in a public place like, say, a mall, or a park, or a restaurant would be deemed appropriate in a public school, but instead we have schools that ban yoga pants because they fit to the shape of a girl’s butt (yoga pants are considered appropriate in plenty of work places, by the way). And what’s the excuse for these ridiculous standards? “Girls wearing revealing clothing (i.e. revealing their fucking shoulders god forbid) is too distracting for the boys” That is bullshit.
I see your point, but I’m not entirely sure it’s true boys have the same dress codes. Going from my own experience of going to many schools and having to read many student handbooks, the boys and girls usually have separate sections in the dress code rules. Boys generally (emphasis one generally, not always) get the no-brainer guidelines like you can’t go shirtless but you don’t really hear about boys having restrictions on how short their pants can be or not being allowed to wear gym shorts cus you can see their junk move around behind them. This also has a lot to do with what’s the norm when it comes to what each gender wears, with girls generally wearing more revealing things. Boy dress codes and girl dress codes are two totally different monsters is what I’m getting at. I have occasionally seen bs boy dress codes in my day, though and if men wanted to dispute the dress codes put on them they would have my support.
I don’t mind schools that have a uniform, that is a case of the school wanting to create a more professional and formal environment. But public schools are a different story as they put really strange restrictions on clothing. I don’t really buy a school saying they have the dress code to look “professional” when they allow kids to waltz in wearing pajama bottoms and a t-shirt while they send home the girl wearing spaghetti straps. There is a point where you don’t want the kids wearing clothing that is too revealing and I understand putting restrictions on that but school dress codes have exceeded that point loooong ago. There are more important things schools should be cracking down on and yet they treat arbitrary dress codes as the #1 priority.
Just because problems in other parts of the world are worse than what we have here doesn’t mean our problems don’t exist or are meaningless. Oppression comes in many forms and has many levels of harshness.
Also of all the examples of petty things feminists fight over I think dress codes are not one of them. Dress codes are bullshit and offend both genders by implying a girl’s body is something to hide or be ashamed of while also implying that boys are too stupid and testosterone filled to focus on their schoolwork when a fucking shoulder is shown. Not to mention it feeds the ever growing problem of victim blaming.
Morticia and Gomez are literally my role models
I still find it odd that people treat Tumblr (and other sites for that matter) as a single entity instead of the culmination of millions of users.
Well considering this is an organization dedicated to collecting donations from the public I really don’t see the problem of making an advertisement to get more people to donate. Considering this took place in a busy subway (and is now a viral video) I imagine they made way more money in donations from this than they put into making the ad itself.

I like the way this guy thinks
