Oh unloading and loading cargo. Yep they work by the container and not the hour. So lots of money can be made.

If he's like me, he is considering the long term. And wants to do most of the work while he's young. So he and hopefully you can relax some when you need to.

Those jobs usually don't have set hours. But I know when I get in work mode I can stay there for as long as I have to.

Btw. I haven't heard lumper in a long time. :3

But he's your fiance.

Don't block him.

Seems like you need more communication now more then ever.

Not even my boss, but his boss, the head of my business group, texting me out of the blue on a Saturday afternoon that I have to go to Birmingham on Thursday and not telling me what for.

Now I’m conflicted. My usual rule is that I don’t even acknowledge I’ve received messages outside of work hours, but part of me is already dreading that I’m going to need all the time I can find to talk my way out of this.

A new survey shows that overall acceptance of LGBTQ people among young adults has dipped for the second year in a row.

The right is clearly winning the culture war online.

Imo all they do is insite even more resistance and outcome of that is more progress. Am I so hopeful in that, that I'm delusional?

Although GLAAD’s report uses LGBT, my guess is they’re not so much interested in hating you so much as transgender people. I’m guessing it has something to do with Joe Rogan ranting every fourth interview or so about trans athletes in contact sports, and bone density, unfairness, blah blah blah.

My favorite part is how they correctly identify gamers as a problem area, but their solution to push for better representation in the medium is exactly the kind of petty bullshit that galvanizes the average hooting MAGA hog.

It's interesting... you could argue that the LGBT cause is exactly the vehicle that won the culture war for the left since the 90s. But at soon as the legislative victories are achieved, minority rights become a liability. How do you convince the average idiot that "representation" is something that actually matters to people? Or that cultural oppression is a thing, given the obvious implication that a system biased against some is also biased in favor of the rest? Civil Rights was fifty years ago and almost no one has been convinced in the years since that black people don't stand on absolutely equal footing in this country.

If you had Koch brothers money, what would you fund to effectively counter the petty bullshit ramblings online? A left wing analog to Prager University videos? Bots that expose PC double standards? I mean, it’s kind of hard to beat the impulse of being a defiant juvenile. Do you remember those PSAs back in 2008 starring Wanda Sykes and Hillary Duff telling people to “knock it off” when it came to saying “that’s so gay” as a negative expression? These are the kinds of things people relish complaining about but it’s kind of hard to conceive a way to counteract its appeal. Cultural left wing causes are by design empathetic to the downtrodden so it will always appear “weak” to the bros no matter how you spin it. I don’t really see an effective way to repackage it as anything else that could possibly appeal to the average gamer blowhard. One thing is certain, the left sure has a knack for finding the worst solutions that only seem to exacerbate the problem.

That's a good question. People on the left have always held an advantage in culture, because generally speaking they're the only ones capable of using humor or producing art in a way that isn't completely tendentious and tedious and brain-dead. But nowadays politics supercedes media to the point where people actually bought Ben Shapiro's novel. What can you do about that? People would rather opt out of cultural experience altogether than feel like they're being lectured on a topic that isn't already dear to them. Fuck em.

Poison ivy that I've had going on 2 weeks now. I've done everything but take prednisone--just bc I don't want to goto the doctor. It should be at the tail end--no new rashes today at least. I've also washed all my bedding, used tecnu (spray and soap), and caladryl (calamine lotion but clear).

My dad had to take that shit. It can have some nasty side effects. Going without - Just as well perhaps!

I can't deal with side effects right now. I'm going to look them up. If they're super bad I am not going to take it. I'm already at the end of this I hope. It still ITCHES so bad sometimes though!!!

EDIT: Side Effects:

    muscle pain/cramps,
    irregular heartbeat,
    weakness,
    swelling hands/ankles/feet,
    unusual weight gain,
    signs of infection (such as fever, persistent sore throat),
    vision problems (such as blurred vision),
    vomit that looks like coffee grounds,


Nope, no way, not puking up coffee grounded, what I assume, is bile.

Low doses, not so bad. Otherwise, yeah, pretty nasty. Oh, and can make you really moody. They forgot to mention how it can effect your skin as well.

White people’s taco restaurants need to understand the meaning of consent. I don’t consent to you deciding for me beforehand what salsa condiment to add to my tacos. I should have the freedom to choose! /Pro-Choice rant.
