Anonymous asked: I FEEL YOU SO HARD regarding that job stuff. I really should get a job too but, uh... PEOPLE and other things... I'd totally freak out. [pulls you out of the trash compactor] Stay outta those, man, that'd be a horrible way to die. [hugs] I really hope things look up for you!
Aww, thank you man… THAT’S WHAT IT IS the people, I think dealing with customers is the most intimidating thing I can think of. Mostly because I would goddamn melt into a puddle of pathetic tears if a customer yelled at me about anything. You could do what I did and get a night crew job, but ahhh, they obviously screw up your sleeping schedule and you can’t just rely on those because they’re in shorter supply, sadly. GOOD LUCK TO U TOO~

I get so mad about not being able to do things that are so easy for everyone else without turning into a sweaty nervous wreck.
I feel like I am doomed to a future of inescapable inconsequentiality because I can’t even take on a low-tier minimum wage job without my brain blue screening every time something goes slightly wrong.
It’s called the Salton Sea. It’s the largest body water in California. And it’s not even supposed to be there. At the turn of the last century, an engineering screw up of epic proportions diverted the Colorado River into one of the lowest, hottest land basins in the United States. It took two years to stem the tide and when the flooding finally stopped, 350 square miles of desert lay underwater. Everyone assumed the giant inland sea they had created by accident would just dry up. But when it didn’t, real estate developers tried to turn an ecological disaster into an opportunity.
For a while it really did seem like a miracle. Tourists flocked to a place that had once been unforgiving desert. People bought homes, built schools, restaurants, yacht clubs.
But then the sea turned on them. Over the years, it’s water, fed only by agricultural runoff, became saltier than the ocean. Botchalism poisoning killed millions of fish and massive die offs during the height of 120 degrees summers, made the air almost unbreathable. The sea began to flood unpredictably. Tourists fled. Boomtowns turned ghost towns.
Today, what remains is a landscape out of science-fiction. Streets, every one of them named, still waiting for neighborhoods that never arrived. Beaches, made not of shell or sand, but of the pulverized skeletons of uncountable millions of fish. Houses half tumbled into toxic looking pits. An old army base, it’s land made uninhabitable by unexploded bombs. Ominous warnings painted on walls.
Is this strange place a tragic failure? Or a sort of post apocalyptic wonderland? (x)
YESSS THE SALTON SEA
Fact check: it’s the birds that die of botulism, not the fish. The fish died of the insane salinity, except for tilapia, which are magic satan fish and can survive in space. beware the satan fish.
Damn do satan fish taste good when covered in batter and deep fried though.
Sky burial is a Tibetan funerary practice wherein a human corpse is incised in certain locations and placed on a mountaintop, exposing it to predatory birds.
Can we ever have anything about dinosaurs not fall flat on its face in an attempt to appeal to toddlers? Who even started this association of giant prehistoric beasts with the little-widdle kiddies?
Little-widdle kiddies like them in documentary form too! I know I did, I much preferred the Discovery channel docs to Land Before Time when looking tolerance about dinosaurs
DUDE I am especially mad about this because the original Walking With Dinosaurs series blew my mind when I was 8. It’s bullshit to feed kids this watered down dinosaur garbage when you could be giving them the REAL DEAL. Mainstream media needs to stop treating kids like they’re total dummies that are only interested in fart jokes, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy.

I wanted to get my night crew stocking job back for a bit over winter break, but there weren’t any positions available on the night crew so the manager was like ‘but we could use you on the front end, bagging and stuff!’
To which I replied “UH WELL MY SKILL SETS AREN’T EXACTLY TAILORED TO… THAT, MAYBE I SHOULD JUST COME BACK FOR THE SUMMER-“
"No, that’d be great, come in on Thursday!"
You guys, I can’t work in a grocery store when there are actually people in it. Especially not bagging. I CAN’T DO THINGS FAST, ESPECIALLY NOT IN FRONT OF PEOPLE. I CAN’T DO THINGS IN FRONT OF PEOPLE, PERIOD. BUT HE WOULDN’T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER…
I’M GOING TO PUKE. I’M GOING TO PUKE UP A GALLON OF BLOOD AND DIE.
