actually, i hated vegeta with a passion as a kid. the guy terrified me to the bone. now i obviously like him better (probably realized how much of a nerd he is), but my favorite character still is 18, hands down
i can even pinpoint the second i became her hardcore fan actually
THIS FIGHT WAS THE BEST FIGHT
i didn’t hate vegeta or anything as a kid, but i definitely disliked how he was a huge douche and how all the dudes i knew adored him
so when he swaggered around and then this girl OUT OF NOWHERE just beats the shit out of him and breaks both his goddamn arms.
that was just the best. it really was fuckin satisfying.
my headcanon is that eighteen and vegeta just constantly have this minor GLARIN AT U rivalry from that time, like any time they see each other there’s this mutual look of YEAH I COULD BEAT YOU RIGHT NOW YOU’RE LUCKY MY HUSBAND/WIFE’S HERE
sometimes eighteen just goes “remember that time i broke vegeta’s arm with one kick” and krillin just sighs and smiles and then they make out a lot
You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
That is a massive man and a fearless dog!

In conclusion, Ron is awesome. The end.
and he put his shoes and socks on dobby to be buried in because he knew how much dobby loved clothes. disliking ron weasley’s character makes 0 sense.
reblogging for the 100th time because ronald.

IF YOU DISLIKE ANY WEASLEY BUT ESPECIALLY RON WEASLEY THEN WE CANNOT BE FRIENDS
well maybe percy is a little understandable but he comes back

the thing to realize here is that conservatives find the idea of paying workers a livable wage so absurd that they make hyperbolic comparisons like this
because fifteen dollars and hour and a hundred thousand dollars an hour both mean the same thing to them; more than you deserve
^That commentary is very important.
[rant]The problem is a lot of businesses believe that just because they have a job they want done, they’re entitled to labor to do it. It’s a hard pill for a lot to swallow - but if your business isn’t doing well enough to pay somebody what they deserve for their time - you don’t deserve that labor. Period. End of story. Yes it would be great if somebody would just boost the productivity of your business for (practically) nothing - but that’s literally fantasy. People aren’t elves. They have actual practical needs, and need actual practical money.
In some ways getting paid minimum wage is almost worse than being unemployed, entirely because time is valuable - much more so than money. If you are stuck in a minimum wage job or jobs - and that is your income - you’re not going to have the time or money really to even pursue a better paying job. You can’t afford a car, you don’t have time to go to interviews, you cannot afford to get higher education so you can get a better paying job - because you don’t have the time or the money, you have bills and you need food. It’s our era’s serfdom.
Further - who employs the most minimum wage workers? Giganto-huge corporations. Look, Wal-Mart and Taco Bell aren’t exactly out on the street corner with a sign and a tin cup, and yet these businesses are essentially asking poor people to do charity for them - on the behalf of the millionaires and billionaires who run the businesses. If you’re working for $7.25 or less, you’re basically doing a business a favor. They’re not doing you a favor, they’re (usually) not being kind to you, you’re being kind to them, more than kind in some instances.
Never mind of course that low wages are incredibly destructive to a capitalist free market economy which rides on mass production and consumption of goods. People - a lot of them - need to have money to buy things. This isn’t the 1700s when there were less than a billion people on the planet, and a few aristocrats buying hand made furniture and clothing was an economy. An industrialized economy is supported by consumers, obviously they can’t consume if they don’t make enough money to. In the long run having a ton of people living below the poverty line stalls the economy, it’s self destructive basically. Henry Ford realized this a century ago (literally - 1914) when he introduced the $5 work day ($112 today) - more people making more money meant more people buying his products. But more importantly he also realized (no duh here) that paying his employees almost twice as much as his competitors meant: he attracted the best employees, lowered turnover (and thus training costs) and boosted productivity. Ever taken notice that the companies which insist on paying their employees next to nothing also suffer from high turnover, training costs (or a lack of properly trained personnel if they try to skimp on training to make up for turnover) and low employee productivity, job satisfaction, etc? Who’d of thunk it? It turns out you get what you pay for.
