This might be unique, but I’m infinitely more terrified of sober drivers on cell phones than I am of drunk drivers who are looking at the road.
I’ll take a drunk driver who is striving to pay attention and maintain speed and looking dead ahead at where they are going over a completely sober driver who is driving completely blind because they are looking down at a phone to text, any day.

Me - “Do you want olives on your sandwich?”
Customer - “Yes, please, I love olives!”
Me - “Me too! Do you want pickles, too?”
Customer - “Yeah! I love pickles, I could eat them plain out of the jar!”
Me - “Me too! I’ve never met an Italian who wont do that.”
Customer - “You’re Italian too? Same here, I could eat olives out of the jar like pop corn.”
Me - “Me too, I do that all the time! Do you want banana peppers too?”
Customer - “Hell yeah, you know us, we love pickled stuff, what else do you have?!”
Me - “We have peperoncini!”
Customer - “I LOVE peperoncini!”
Me - “*laughs* I just had peperoncini on my bagel!”
Customer - “That’s the most Italian thing ever! *laughs*”
Me - “Let me guess, you don’t want lettuce on your sandwich, right?”

Co-worker - “I don’t even want to know what the fuck just happened.”
"I joined Etsy when it was still small and developing back in 2006, and since then I’ve watched budding artists within this community develop into world-class designers. Because of the enthusiastic and supportive Etsy culture, I was able to start my own small business and grow it into a sustainable, full-time career." — Melanie Casey

Non-vegan - “Lol, eww, that must be pretty shitty, flavorless food if you have to mask it in so many flavors just to eat it, lol, good luck, meat tastes way better!” *covers cooked steak in BBQ sauce, garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, oregano and a tiny bit of soy sauce*
Watching “Cut, Poison, Burn.”
You can’t always fight fire with fire, or in this case, fight poison with poison.
You can’t fight cancer, but you can try to avoid it, stay active, don’t smoke, don’t eat animal products, don’t drink things stored in plastic, avoid microwaving food, avoid processed food, avoid canned foods, avoid non-organic foods, don’t eat synthetic vitamins, avoid OTC pills and brand name medicines, avoid don’t eat GMO foods, don’t eat anything artificial, don’t use chemicals.
Our country isn’t trying to avoid it because that would cost them money.
No fucking shit.
The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology has dealt a devastating blow to the notion that men and women are fundamentally different when it comes to how they think and act.
“Although gender differences on average are not under dispute, the idea of consistently and inflexibly gender-typed individuals is,” Bobbi J. Carothers of Washington University in St. Louis and Harry T. Reis of the University of Rochester explained in their study. “That is, there are not two distinct genders, but instead there are linear gradations of variables associated with sex, such as masculinity or intimacy, all of which are continuous.”
Analyzing 122 different characteristics from 13,301 individuals in 13 studies, the researchers concluded that differences between men and women were best seen as dimensional rather than categorical. In other words, the differences between men and women should be viewed as a matter of degree rather than a sign of consistent differences between two distinct groups.
