Edit: here's my thought process. Why do they need to tell someone they are not. Then proceed to say the most racist thing, lmao.
From the lore of the Predator species, a Predator who goes for a hunt is trying to prove they are worthy of adult status in their society. As each Predator dies in the film they fail to attain adult status in their society.
Both are pastes made of mashed beans (peanuts and chickpeas are beans.) They also have a similar nutrient profile and are both used for similar dishes.
Like, I just was thinking about how lots of pet species will just eat as much food as you give them to the point of making themselves sick, and keeping them at a healthy weight requires not giving them access to too much food. Obviously some humans have problems with this, but imagine how bad things would be if everyone were basically psychologically incapable of not eating food when we had access to it even when we'd had enough, given our dramatically higher access to food due to agriculture.
You have probably done it without even noticing. The modern world is clearly miraculous.
After a certain point in popularity it is assumed the celeb is going to sooner or later:
Have death threats thrown at them
Be sexually harassed
Have police called on them
Then we have all the Vtubers who are Hannah Monatanning it up and straight chilling. Ironmouse has never been swatted, but by God some people would if they could, and others would probably show up at her house to show their "love".
Dream is an example of someone who shouldn't have let out who he was IMO because the attacks against him seemed to become a lot more real once there was a real human name, face, and location. Like I would have gone to the grave as Dream with how many people hated him before his face reveal.
I still don't get how - with such a perfect tee-up - we settled on "X, the platform formerly known as Twitter".
Besides, imagining Musks reaction to this tickles me slightly.
Much easier to reject bad CVs. On the other hand every job post is the same and you have to check Glassdoor and Crunchbase before applying to a potential bad company
Been thinking a bit about this, popular music (the ones that hit top 100 charts or whatever) never has lyrics that point out real problems or point to culprits and how they're fucking our shit, which is very easy to find in punk rock and some variations, as well as rap.
Of course, part of the problem are the record labels themselves, which often hold artists "hostage" in order to profit off them. Bigger ones will obviously prefer to avoid having such lyrics become popular.
Still, there seems to be absolute zero songs in certain genres that even come within 10 meters of talking/singing/teaching/bringing awareness about situations that affect a LOT of listeners, even from far away, and would be extremely helpful in spreading some knowledge.
Granted, doing so is easier said than done, a catchy tune that calls out big oil's many attempts to burn the world, or big pharma's frequent price gouging, aren't things "any idiot" can come up with. But that nobody outside "angry" genres seems to be doing it is what saddens me.
Playing through the latest Yazuka game about the death of the Yakuza, similar to the last of the outlaws in RDR2.
You could just do an FTX and scapegoat 1 person, or be like WeWork and get rich losing money. Not to mention the hundreds of embezzling, politician lobbying companies out there or even the chaebols in Asia.
Holding your phone can mean tons of stuff now.
Even if it's just an archived version, someone somewhere will find utility in IT or coding advice posted over a century ago.
A "Showerthought" is a simple term used to describe the thoughts that pop into your head while you're doing everyday things like taking a shower, driving, or just daydreaming. The best ones are thoughts that many people can relate to and they find something funny or interesting in regular stuff.
