If you’re feeling small today I dare you to sit up straighter, look someone who scares you directly in the eye, take up room at the dinner table, make yourself bigger, when ‘sorry’ laps at the back of your tongue, tries to pick up after you, remind yourself that your existence doesn’t demand an apology, that you are allowed to make mess and take up space. Do not be afraid to expand. Every single goddamn minute. Expand, expand, expand.
Land of the free home of the rich
What really scares me is that they all have significantly cheaper health care AND education, which means Americans not only make they least, they pay the most.
I think it should be said, the little * next to the Canadian minimum wage, means that that is the minimum STUDENT wage. As of right now, my wage is $9.75, however as soon as I turn 18, my wage will increase to $10.25 (although come June, the minimum wage is increasing from $10.25 to $11.00)
This must be an old tweet, NZ minimum wage is $11.40 for youth workers (16-17 year olds), and $14.75 for everyone else. And yeah healthcare is pretty much free if it’s accident related (incl. heart attacks and the like). Our food is expensive as shit though.
i can’t tell if this is a girl doing female to male makeup and just put on lipstick and eyemakeup or if this is a guy who put on makeup
Either way you look at it, they have a sweet stache and deserve a high five
I am so lost
however, even if someone else in that room had been a human boy at some point, they 100% would not have played with ships in bottles because unlike captain picard, they did not emerge into the world fully-formed as an erudite 19th century gentleman.
In 1808, Napoleon, running out of scenic holiday destinations to invade, somehow totally forgot about his neighbor to the south, Spain. So that year he dispatched his troops, kicking off the Peninsular War.
Only 20 years old and working as a barmaid in the town of Valdepenas, Juana Galan was not expecting a surge of French soldiers to come storming through her village. But on June 6, that’s exactly what happened. At that time, most of the men were fighting Napoleon’s forces elsewhere in the nation. Juana, unfazed by things like rifles and Frenchmen and French riflemen, began organizing the women in her village to form a trap for the approaching army.
When the army arrived, Juana and her friends were ready. They dumped boiling water and oil on the French troops, which by all accounts will instantly take the fight out of pretty much anyone. Then Juana, armed with only a batan, beat back the heavily armed French cavalry with her squad of village women, almost none of whom were armed with guns.
The French retreated, giving up on capturing not just Juana’s town but the entire province of La Mancha, leading to ultimate Spanish victory. Today, she is seen in Spain as a national hero, a symbol of resistance, strength, patriotism, feminism and hitting shit with a stick.
That’s one hell of a portrait.
hitting shit with a stick
This is maybe the best portrait of anyone that I’ve ever seen, ever.
