Art and Oddities
It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.

i love the Women Against Feminism that are like “I dont need feminism because i can admit i need my husband to open a jar for me and thats ok!” cause listen 1. get a towel 2. get the towel damp 3. put it on the lid and twist. BAM now men are completely useless. you, too, can open a jar. time to get a divorce

You can also use a knife wedged gently under the lid and pushed against the jar to release the seal.  Boom, it’ll open easy as pie and no man required.  

Take your jar.

Hold it at a 45 degree angle to your countertop edge.

Tap the side/bottom of the lid sharply against the counter. Not so sharply you break the jar, but you know. Sharply. This will loosen the seal without having to resort to knives.

Open your jar.

I’ll make a video later.

hold the jar in your non-dominant hand with the lid pointed away from you and slightly down

Spank the base of the jar; you will hear a kind of popping noise

open jar easily

who has ever thought this ever

Don’t let your children drink water it might make them think drinking other clear liquids is okay do you want your child drinking bleach

don’t let your children walk, it might make them think its okay to walk away from home

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure not even people who use heroin believe it is beneficial.

Don’t let your child breathe air. Studies have shown thatin the event of a fire, children who breathe in air are much more likely to breathe in smoke than children who’ve never breathed air.

Don’t have a child. 100% of children grow up and die. You’re literally condemning your own children to die.

What the mother-fucking FUCK.  First off, most vaccinations are given before you’re 5 years old (there are a few boosters, but not a lot and most kids HATE getting them) and won’t remember it.
Second, you wouldn’t be anti-vax if you were old enough to remember polio or smallpox epidemics.  You know why there aren’t any cases of those horrible diseases in the US today?  Because we vaccinated against them for enough years that they aren’t here anymore.
Plus, anti-vaxxers got hold of Africa.  Polio is making a comeback in Africa because people have stopped vaccinating against it.

I am old enough to remember when the polio vaccine had only been around for a decade or so. People regarded it as a miracle. Not a terrible burden. Not a heinous way of treating children. It prevented children—and adults, because polio was never only a children’s disease—from needing crutches and wheelchairs and iron lungs for the rest of their lives.

After all that, I never dreamed that people would be SO FUCKING IDIOTIC that we’d see pictures like this again:

Think about what you’re saying, anti-vaxxers. You’re saying that you would rather believe bad science by a guy who was trying to promote an unproven drug and put your kids in leg braces, wheelchairs and/or iron lungs for the rest of their lives. Or maybe you’d rather that this happened:

If I could, I would shove every anti-vaccination fool in the world into a TARDIS and take them back to the days of smallpox and scarlet fever, back to the days where parents warned kids not to drink from public water fountains in summer because it was a great way of picking up polio. I want them to sit in classrooms with kids who have reeking bags of camphor around their necks or pinned to their undershirts—kids whose parents are trying to keep their children from getting near anyone who might be carrying a dangerous disease. I want them to hear parents warning kids—as my parents warned me, because God forbid I should be the one kid whose vaccination failed—to come straight home if they had a bad headache or their legs ached, because both were common early signs of polio, and both often appeared without warning. I want the anti-vaccination idiots to see quarantine signs in windows and realize that no one thinks anything of such signs because illness is so common that the signs are NORMAL.

Xander: Oh and the uh, second problem I'm having... 'come and get it, big boy'?
Willow: Well, the slayer always says a pun, or a witty play on words. And I think it throws the vampires off and it makes them frightened because I'm wisecracking - Okay, I didn't really have a chance to work on that one, but you try it every time.
Oz: Uh, if I may suggest 'This time, it's personal'. I mean, there's a reason why it's a classic.
Xander: I've always been amazed with how Buffy fought, but in a way I feel like we took her punning for granted.
