Trivia from The Lion King

WAIT THOSE ARE MICKEY MOUSE’S EARS??? I THOUGHT THEY WERE ITS EYES????

They are! c: I had to look this up myself, but the text is very misleading. The mickey mouse ears are on the back of the bug in the top right corner, the one “highlighted” by a lighter circle.

OH! I thought they were on the one in Timon’s hands lol

look at that fancy fuckin bunkbed jesus christ. back in my day, there were no stairs for easy access to the top. the road to the top bunk was a vertical fucking climb of wooden slats that you had to scramble to find purchase on. the one that made it to the top was not only a victor, but a survivor

if a guy is hitting on u and he is clearly the alpha in his group of guys.. go for the third in command and undermine their whole power structure

Oh god, I used this tactic so often. Because in most cases I was trying to pull dudes for my friends, rather than myself. You figure out who their leader is, go for #3 or #4 in the group, who is generally much cuter and a bit more shy. This is why he ranks high, but not too high. You go hard on this dude. You hold his hand and smile at him. You don’t even have to go further. Dude #3 is just bewildered you brushed off #1. This makes the dude at the top antsy. It causes dissent in the ranks. Your friends can now swoop in, picking from the remaining dudes as they start to scatter in the wind. They have lost all sense of self. You have secured free drinks for the rest of the night. And whatever else your genitals desire.

She broke that shit down so beautifully

women are masterminds and i love it

Hey girls sorry to be *that guy* but we aren’t wolves. Yes, we travel in pack, but we ain’t a “First male”.
Usually, there is the “manager guy”, that is commonly found bordline losing his shit trying to making the pack doing something

Minimum wage: $7.25

$7.25 x 40 hour full time work week: $290

$290 x 4 weeks per month: $1,160

In every Southern state (didn’t have time to look at the rest of the country) you can find some sort of studio apartment for around $500 per month, sometimes less than that. Why bother lying about something so easily disproven? 

Because Bernie Sanders supporters aren’t going to fact check him, and they’ll ignore any contrary evidence that’s presented to them anyways.

Things like this really tick me off and It’s not political or anything but it’s the fact that you think all that money is there. Here’s what I mean;

That weekly check comes to, according to you, 290. Most places DO NOT pay for your half hour lunch that is required by law. So your beginning number was wrong. $7.25 x 7.5 hours a day x 5 days a week only gets you $271.88.  Most people in America get paid bi-weekly, so let’s double it to get the budget. $543.75. That’s GROSS, not NET. Out of that comes anywhere between 10% and 15% taxes depending on state so we’ll low ball it at 10%. Automatically down to $489.38 a pay check. Now health insurance. Usually anywhere from 70-100 a pay check for the cheapest plans. Again, we’ll low ball and go $70. So now we have $419.39 a paycheck. x 2  = $839. 

Eight hundred thirty nine dollars. A MONTH.

But again, you seem to think that’s fair. So let’s proceed. You say rent is $500? Okay. This person now has $339 left to buy groceries for the whole month, pay utilities, car payment, car insurance, and gas money to get to work. 

Those are the bare needs. You have to eat. You have to pay for heat, water, garbage removal, gas and or electricity because apartments do not always include things and rarely all of the above. Most cities in America do not have public transportation. Mine doesn’t despite the fact that our population is over 15,000 people, not counting a taxi. If you have a car, you have to pay that. If you have a car, legally you have to have car insurance. You have to pay that. You have to have gas in that car to get to work to make that money.

Now if you can tell me you can get all of that out of $339 you’re lying.

You are so focused on rent that you aren’t thinking about everything else people have to pay for. Rent was an example. This is a breakdown of the budget you gave me and it’s not possible to live off that in 2017 America. 

And BECAUSE this person makes over $800 a month, they probably won’t qualify for financial aid or food stamps. $800 is the line in my state where they won’t help you. No food stamps, financial aid, or government housing if you make more than $800 a month. 

Why does it bother you that people deserve to live above the poverty line?

Preach.

That’s because you aren’t supposed to live on minimum wage. Minimum wage ($7.25 an hour) is the entry level earning. I was on minimum wage for three months. My pay steadily went up and I now make $8.50 an hour which boosts my paycheck. Most jobs only have employees on minimum wage to test out the employee, it’s called a trial period. During the trial period at my job, they only had me on minimum wage because during those three months they can fire me for any reason. After I proved I was a good worker, my pay immediately went up. Employers don’t keep good employees on minimum wage.

Also

NO ONE IS FORCING YOU TO WORK AT A JOB THAT PAYS MINIMUM WAGE. IF YOU WORK THERE FOR MONTHS OR YEARS ON MINIMUM WAGE, THAT’S ON YOU FOR NOT LEAVING. NO, MINIMUM WAGE IS NOT A LIVABLE WAGE, BECAUSE YOU AREN’T SUPPOSED TO LIVE ON IT. DO YOU PEOPLE NOT KNOW HOW JOBS WORK

“How jobs work” thats not how they fucking work though. My girlfriends job was supposed to give her a raise every six months. That raise was 5 goddamn cents, which the state immediately ate in taxes.

Shes been stuck on minimum wage for 3 years despite being the best worker there, something her bosses have said numerous times IN WRITING.

And no, this isnt an “isolated” or “special” case, its the reality for most people below the poverty line.

“Just get a better job” how sway!?!?

No where else in our town is hiring. We’ve fucking tried.

Its not us that doesnt know how jobs work you ivory tower fuck.

Employers don’t keep good employees on minimum wage.“

Oh honey, if you only knew how the world actually works.

out of curiosity, when did y’all start the harry potter journey? 

In 1999/2000. The Philosopher’s Stone was published in 1998 in Italy and that year my sister got the book for Christmas. She did not ask for it, she knew nothing about it, but my parents thought she might like it. I remember being curious about the book (I already was an avid reader as a child) and wanting to know why Harry was wearing a mouse hat. I remember being 8 or 9 at the time, so it must have been 1999/2000. I remember I read the first three books more or less in a row (if anyone else from Italy remembers it, I still have the first three books with ‘Pecoranera’ instead of ‘Corvonero’, and it was so weird when in the film and in the fourth book they said Corvonero). Then I remember waiting for The Goblet of Fire and for the first movie, they both came out in 2001 here in Italy. I remember talking about Harry to all of my school friends, and mispronouncing so many of the names! I am glad I started reading them in primary school, so that they could be with me throughout my childhood and my teenage years. I grew up with Harry Potter, just like many other people. That does not mean, of course, that you cannot fall in love with the books if you read them all as an adult, or if you just start reading them now because you are a child or teenager now. 

But they have been part of my life for so long, and I guess I would be a different person without them. 

P.S. Corvonero is the Italian translation for Ravenclaw, it literally means Blackraven. Pecoranera on the other hand meant Blacksheep, and yes, it has the same figurative meaning it has in English. 

I think back in 1999. I’d heard of it before from my elementary school teacher, but only got into it on my birthday, which was also my best friend’s birthday. My mom got each of us a book in the series, my bff got the Chamber of Secrets and I got the Prisoner of Azkaban, so I read that (despite the lack of context) and loved it so much I went back and bought the first 2 books and read them, reread PoA and then waited for GoF and the others while they came out :’D Deathly Hallows was the first ever book I read in English because I couldn’t wait for the translation in Italian and I remember perfectly the day I put myself in line to buy it… and then I read it all in 5 days which was pretty noteworthy considering my english wasn’t as good as it is now and I wasn’t used to reading whole books in English, nvm reading books that long in another language.

Hey guys

Remember LJ icons?

They were TINY. 100x100 pixels. That’s, like, digital scrimshaw. And people were obsessed with making good ones - and there were CONTESTS, super cutthroat ones, and trends would sweep the icon-making world every week or so and as soon as you mastered a technique it would be passé, and there were whole communities dedicated to tutorials and icon-making resources, and it was all its own WEIRD LITTLE WORLD.

Is there anything like that now? What do graphics-obsessed people make in the Tumblr era?

If there is one thing I miss about LJ it’s the shadow-conversations people used to have in comment threads solely with their icons. Icons had a vocabulary, and a grammar, and you had to learn it.

Gif sets: not quite used the same way.

Right! It was a whole different dynamic because you could choose which icon to post with. So it would be like “I’m wearing my Severus Snape with a Weird Al song quote mask to say this.”

FLASHBACK MAAAAAN.

For a year or two I had a paid LJ account and I remember being actively excited about the EXTRA ICON SLOTS. I would be able to express myself with a wider array of Thor and Batman reaction images!

a friend and i once had a conversation that went to, iirc, something like 6 pages of comments, just the two of us, only with out icons

100x100 pixels wasn’t scrimshaw on the monitors we were using. It was a totally reasonable percentage of screen space in the resolutions we had at the time.

Icons were your mood indicator, emoticon and gif rolled into one.  I actually miss having multiple icons to choose from.

I truly miss making icons. Working on a 100x100 px canvas made for interesting challenges while also forgiving low screencap quality. It taught me so much as well. We LJ graphics people also made headers, don’t forget that. And that is what follows us to tumblr. It’s the bigger edits, but they were never our main focus back in the day. And let me tell you, I still sometimes go back to some of my big batch posts and I’m amazed at how good I actually was. I never do that kind of stuff anymore! Makes me kinda sad…

This sounds like a lot, but it’s true. An estimated 100,000,000 sharks per year are killed, threatening many species with endangerment or extinction.

Professor Stephen Hawking believes Zayn might still be in One Direction - in a different universe

The important thing about this is that Stephen Hawking well understands the fact that you can enjoy and/or be upset about frivolous things while simultaneously enjoying and/or being upset about important things.

He also turned this into a massive encouragement for girls to become female scientists as they age.

I fucking love Stephen hawking he gave this a serious answer instead of trivializing teenage girls like most men (esp. highly intelligent nerdy men) do

god bless you sir

Hawking is a treasure!
