You can be as derisive as you want, but it won't stop me from writing erotic Food Network fanfiction, which is a critical part of the Food Network Extended Universe

Hey, can I just say, because capitalist propaganda is so hard to unlearn:

If you have a job, any kind of job at all, I'm so proud of you. This shit is hard. Working, period, is hard.

And if you don't have a job? That doesn't make you lesser than the people who do have one.

We all deserve the same level of respect as human beings. Capitalism fails to uphold what should be a law of human rights.


Stoicism is Buddhism for white people.

Cryptocurrency is the Paleo of finance.

Cheerier note thing.

I have never wanted to cosplay, but re-reading KSR's Red Mars has rekindled my affinity for Nadia. My costume is nearly fully formed in my head.

Bottom line, your tip helps your driver keep their head (barely) above water. If you tip at a sit-down restaurant*, tip your delivery driver.

*if you're in the US and don't tip at sit-down restaurants, I don't want to know you.**

**this is not the place to debate tipping in the face of poor service. I still don't want to know you. Leave a note with the tip or talk to a manager about why you're unhappy.

Yes, there are ways for a driver to maximize their earnings, but they mostly coincide with driving at peak times (more time required per delivery) and still don't bring your gross hourly to minimum wage.

Ever wonder what your delivery driver is making? Here's an example from Orange County, California.

Note that time and mileage from accepting the order to reaching the pick up point is *not* compensated.

Also note that delays are almost *never* your driver's fault; the longer it takes to get your order to you, the more eats into their per-hour earnings.

If you use a delivery service (DoorDash, Postmates, Instacart, UberEats etc.) and don't tip, I'm going to judge you.

boost this to convince me to call the doctor to set up an appointment to get help for my mental illness (this is the strangest, most authentic and shameless thing I've ever tooted)

I would like to understand why it is so difficult to find a small (4") potted schefflera arboricola in Orange County. I can find them online, but then pay 150% of the plant's price in shipping.

I just want a little plant to keep me company in my office. Why is it so difficult?

If you haven’t heard about Yandy, they pulled their Handmaiden costume cause a bunch of white women complained about it. So naturally we as indigenous folks asked Yandy again to pull their costumes. The company said they would not unless enough people demonstrated against it.

I need others to understand and truly unpack how white feminism is constantly privileged over indigenous humanity. Like this should serve as a blatant example of how we allot humanity to one group while denying another’s. I’m tired of us having to fight for our humanity to be acknowledged.

If your ideology regarding liberation excludes indigenous peoples humanity then fuck you, your praxis is garbage.
