I think on one hand some people did underestimate him but we also have to remember she did actually get more votes. I think travelling for an inauguration is less of a priority than traveling for your rights is as well.

We sous vide a bunch of meats at work and pork chop is by far the best one, I highly recommend giving that a try.

I honestly see countries that are working to slow climate change threatening sanctions on countries that drag their feet. It's really the only way to force places to catch up.

When my ex joined the first time he actually quit basic training just before finishing because he realized he didn't trust a single one of the people there with his life. He joined shortly after 9/11 and there was a lot of people impulsively joining without really thinking things through. He told me a story about how barely any of them could figure out how to put their sleeping bag together so he sat there putting his together over and over again to show them. A higher up even mentioned to him that this was unusual and he was sorry he got stuck with such a shit group. He ended up joining again later for something else and that seems to have gone better.

Damn I would expect way longer out of boots for that price and I beat the shit out of mine. Maybe ask kleinbl00 about some good long lasting boots because as the story goes his are older than me.

Do people between 13 and 16 who work get exempt from this curfew thing or do people normally get their first job later in Iceland ?

I went to a yoga class the other day and I forgot about the whole " be totally silent as soon as you walk in so you don't disturb other peoples silence" thing which led to that very weird first class feeling of wtf do I do now.

Also, this whole time I thought that blue stuff on the tub peeled off and I'm really disappointed to hear otherwise.

I kept waking up last night because my building would start shaking right before some big chunks of ice/snow came sliding past my window. For the last few days it was overcast but still warm which generally means snow is coming and it came right on que this morning to replace those chunks. I can't imagine living somewhere everything melts over night.

Most people I know have accepted it and decided to chose different paths from their parents which is something I think will be interesting to see down the road. I think society will start to look very different. Most of the people I work with have university degrees and none of them are using them. A co-worker and I were talking the other day about how people our age are starting to figure out careers in things our parents never taught us like gardening and crafting that skipped a generation. One example was a woman in Montreal who grows mushrooms and delivers them to restuarant on her bike.

Quit playing dumb, you know perfectly well I mean heforshe has nothing to do with your slogans "teach men not to rape" those are posters you saw online and felt victimized by so they're clouding how you see other campaigns which have nothing to do with it. Kind of like how when people are actual victims they have a skewed view of anything related to the thing they are a victim of which causes them to be triggered.

Holy shit, and heforshe has nothing to do with that.

You're trying to a be a victim because you're taking a conversation that has nothing to do with a campaign you dislike and inserting it in there so you can be a victim.

You didn't say "the messages" you said "don't rape" as if you thought the posters saying things like don't rape or don't be that guy had anything to do with heforshe. The campaign addresses the bystander effect in everybody not just men. The name is simply a call that men can join in on this as well.

You are not the victim, stop trying to be the victim all the time FFS.
