those darn privileged females
DO YOU KNOW WHY THERE ARE SO MANY GENDER SPECIFIC SHELTERS FOR FEMALES?!?!?!?
BECAUSE PHYSICAL ABUSE HAPPENS SO OFTEN IN THIS COUNTRY THAT THEY HAVE TO BUILD THESE BUILDINGS IN EVERY. SINGLE. FUCKING. CITY.
SO THAT WOMEN CAN FUCKING HIDE FROM THEIR HUSBANDS OR BOYFRIENDS OR EXS OR BROTHERS OR FATHERS AND OH MY FUCKING GOD I COULD RIP THAT NOSE RING RIGHT OUT OF HIS STUPID FACE.
Why is it always guys that look like that too.
The main culprit to blame for there being more homeless men than women is a lack of adequate welfare programs, accessible mental healthcare, and veterans services, since veterans are more likely to suffer from mental health disorders and are overwhelmingly male and more likely to come from lower socio-economic backgrounds.
The main culprit to blame for there being more female college students than male ones is that women have less job opportunities than men, so college has become more of a prerequisite for finding a stable and comfortable career and income than for men, who are paid better for the same job and have more career opportunities available to them with less training.
The main culprit to blame for women having a longer life expectancy than men is mainly a combination of biology (women tend to be more iron deficient than men, which is actually better for cell regeneration) and life choices (men are more likely to smoke cigarettes and eat high-cholesterol foods for example)
And, as previously stated above, there are more gender-specific shelters for women because women are over 5 times more likely to experience domestic violence than men are.
So yeah. There’s that.
Also, that lip piercing looks like a leech is boring into your face.
The Chinese New Year begins today, and what better way to start of the Year of the Horse than to please your pallet with Dim Sum. But for the newbie, Cantonese cuisine can seem pretty intimidating. Rest assured, it’s hard to go wrong with the typical dishes served at dim sum restaurants – and we’re here to help. Here are our top tips for Dim Sum Etiquette:
It is customary to pour tea for others before filling one’s own cup during a meal.
Don’t lose track of your primary waiter (most commonly the person who takes your drink order after you’ve been seated). Status is important in Chinese culture and there’s a strict hierarchy in proper dim sum palaces.
Pace yourself. There are so many dishes to try and you can fill up very quickly. And, per tradition, dim sum is meant to be savored slowly.
If you see a dish you want, but the cart is on the other side of the room, get out of your seat and chase after it. Unlike most restaurants, it is perfectly acceptable to go after the dishes you want, as you see them.
Don’t ask for a window seat or a table away from the action. With Dim Sum, sitting near the Kitchen or in the center of the room actually works to your benefit. You get the freshest dishes when you’re seated in the heart of the restaurant.
Take some risks! Dim Sum is more than dumplings and rice. Some dishes may look intimidating, but they’re much friendlier to the pallet than you would expect. Some personal recommendations: Steamed chicken buns, turnip cakes, and custard tarts. Try these and you won’t be disappointed.
Grab a dessert dish in the middle of the meal. Mingling sweet dishes with savory dishes during dim sum is totally conventional.
Most importantly: Tip, tip, tip, tip, tip! If you had respectable service, make sure to leave a 20-25% tip on the table for your serving staff. While it’s customary to pay your bill at the front, it’s important that you show your appreciation for the food you have been served by leaving a thoughtful tip at the table that you dined at.
Uh, no. He didn’t become a pornstar. Steve Burns actually left because he didn’t want to make a career out of a Childrens TV host for the rest of his life. He wanted to pursue his musical career. There was also the factor that Steve was also starting to lose his hair and he didn’t want that to happen on a TV show..in an interview he stated he was starting to bald..and in the show he began to start wearing hats more and more until he finally retired from the show and let Joe take over.
Steve never “died”, became a “Pornstar” or went to jail for drug possession..again all rumor.. He’s actually doing pretty okay, he’s been in a few things since that time, even a Youtube comedy series called The Professionals.
