How long until the 15 year olds take over this post with their garbage

Did you mean: How long until you get called on your bullshit? (By the way, you don’t get to decide that everyone who disagrees with you is fifteen years old and you also don’t get to decide that teenagers opinions don’t matter!)

Are you one of the above people? Then please say so, and I do not have any issue with you discussing your experience (although I may still respectfully disagree with some of your conclusions!)

Because I am a woman who acknowledges that rape culture is a thing (yes, even if “not all guys are like that”) and that men have a hell of a lot of privilege in our society. And I am a lesbian who does not like the word “faggot” and I don’t think that one person saying it’s cool means that straight people can use that term and no one will be hurt.

And I am a white person who acknowledges that I have white privilege, and I think cultural appropriation is a thing and I don’t think I have the right to say it’s probs fine when I know that some people of color are really bothered by it and find it really disrespectful.

So that’s where I’m coming from. Where the hell are you coming from? You aren’t all of these people, which means that with at least some of these characters (who knows, perhaps all of them!) you are speaking over real people. You are putting words in the mouths of people you clearly don’t like listening to. 

Also before you say I’m fifteen, I’m 21 which according to your blog is like a year older than you so probably I’m a year more right than you, by your logic. Twenty year olds and their garbage.

PSA - PLEASE READ AND SPREAD HE WORD!!!

IF YOU SEE THIS PLANT AT ALL, DO NOT TOUCH IT!!!

Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is an invasive herb in the carrot family which was originally brought to North America from Asia and has since become established in the New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Northwest regions of the United States. Giant hogweed grows along streams and rivers and in fields, forests, yards and roadsides, and a giant hogweed plant can reach 14 feet or more in height with compound leaves up to 5 feet in width.

Giant Hogweed sap contains toxic chemicals known as Furanocoumarins. When these chemicals come into contact with the skin and are exposed to sunlight, they cause a condition called Phytophotodermatitis, a reddening of the skin often followed by severe blistering and burns. These injuries can last for several months, and even after they have subsided the affected areas of skin can remain sensitive to light for years. Furanocoumarins are also carcinogenic and teratogenic, meaning they can cause cancer and birth defects. The sap can also cause temporary (or even permanent) blindness if introduced into the eyes.

If someone comes into physical contact with Giant Hogweed, the following steps should be taken:
  • Wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and COLD water as soon as possible.
  • Keep the exposed area away from sunlight for 48 hours.
  • If Hogweed sap gets into the eyes, rinse them with water and wear sunglasses.
  • See a doctor if any sign of reaction sets in.
If a reaction occurs, the early application of topical steroids may lessen the severity of the reaction and ease the discomfort. The affected area of skin may remain sensitive to sunlight for a few years, so applying sun block and keeping the affected area shielded from the sun whenever possible are sensible precautions
PLEASE, DO NOT JUST READ AND SCROLL! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND POTENTIALLY LIFE-SAVING INFORMATION!!!

Extra note: if you live in Oregon, New Jersey, Michigan or New York and see one of these, call your state’s department of agriculture to report it, and trained professionals will come kill it before it can produce seeds and spread.

Frankly, if you see one in general, probably call your DOA and see if there’s a program in place.

Do not burn it, because the smoke will give you the same reaction.

If for some ungodly reason there isn’t a professional who can handle it for you (and please, please use a professional), the DOA of New York has [this guide] for how to deal with it yourself.

OH MY FUCK I HAVE THESE IN MY BACKYARD.

Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles? By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.

And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. Here are some statistics from treehugger.com:

“The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year. About 80% of those plastic bottles end up in a landfill!”

To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles.

The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America.

Many people in third world countries have taken up building homes out of plastic bottles, from Africa to Asia. Perhaps the trend will catch on in America and all of those bottles will stop ending up in the landfills. Wouldn’t they be better off housing the homeless? Kinda like all those empty houses scattered all over the country?

Perfect

Architecture doesn’t have to be formal contracts and expensive materials. This is fantastic, and is exactly the sort of thing that can solve so many problems with the current contract system, where everyone gets mired by costs and nothing gets done.

I always find it interesting when white people try to quote MLK. They always seem to forget this one. Hmm looks like Dr. King wasn’t a fan of white “allies” very much…

Keep this going until it’s as remembered as the two or three quotes people only remember him by.
