So many people wouldn’t have asthma in the first place if it wasn’t for these corporations…Shifting blame from actual culprits to people with asthma (and people who can’t help but use plastic straws at that) is peak capitalism.
To put that 635,000 ton figure in context, in the US alone, jetskis and pleasure boats consume some 1.4 billion gallons of fuel a year, responsible for some 22 times the emission from exhaust alone. Hell, even dirt bikes have asthma inhalers beat in terms of emission. Plus, I’m pretty sure the pharma industry could come up with more inert propellants for those inhalers if they were actually incentivized to do so.
Am I being dense or do the reblog balls not actually say which blogs reblogged from who?
Saw Jeremy Corbyn speaking in Sheffield last night. Honestly it was pretty bad. A lot of straightforward questions (what would you have done differently, what do you think of Kier Starmer, the whole second referendum line sucked right, are you going to run for parliament again) totally dodged. The guy has literally nothing to lose now, he’s no longer leader, the Parliamentary Labour Party’s kicked him out and will never let him back in, and all his supporters are being systematically kicked out the party too and yet he still can’t find his voice. It seems like the one thing he’s learned from being a leading politician is how not to answer a question. I know it’s a cliche now but straight talking honest politics? Bollocks.
cis people talking to trans people are literally like ‘omg i’m so sorry i really don’t want to offend you please don’t get offended i’m so sorry if i say something offensive i really didn’t mean to offend you i’m just uneducated and don’t know anything about trans people so please please don’t get offended i’m so so sorry. anyways do you have a dick’
i love when people sincerely believe in ~the coming socialist revolution~ but also gasp and pearl-clutch about the idea of people being allowed to have guns. what do you all imagine happening exactly. are you planning on taking down the government with a series of really scathing tweets
man I really am not expecting much from HRT but given it’s only been 2.5 months and I’m already noticing some fun changes it’s all looking up from here ngl
As someone around for 9-11 and the "NEVER FORGET NUMBER #1 GREATEST TRAGEDY EVER IN HISTURY" response to it I am in thrilled and invigorated by the fact that younger people just make amogus memes and TikTok nonsense about it. A huge chunk of America cared more about it than any entire genocide and thought you would cry learning about it. They hoped it'd make every generation patriotically angry forever and ever and want to join the military. Instead you Photoshop the towers into squidwards house and shit. Never stop lol
I’m physically unable to take 9/11 seriously, entirely because my grade 9 english teacher was bizarrely obsessed with it. We basically had an entire unit on 9/11. We watched that documentary from those students that were doing a documentary of firefighters and wound up getting the only footage of the first plane hitting. We did a novel study of a book about some kid being in one of the towers for take your kid to work day and him and his dad squeezing past the wreckage of the plane to escape in time. We watched that Nic Cage movie of him being a firefighter during 9/11 that gets stuck in an elevator shaft when the place collapses. I am dead fucking serious, we had to make up fictional people that died in the attack, write an obituary for our 9/11sona’s, and then write and deliver a eulogy as their grief-stricken parent. At one point in the unit the teacher clarified that she hadn’t personally lost anyone to the attack, nor was she anywhere near New York when it happened. She never bothered to ask if any of us had actually lost someone in the attack, which kind of seems like a thing you should do before making us invent fictional victims to give eulogies for. The unit began with her demanding to know where we all were on the day of the attack and what we remembered, and she started crying when we told her that 1. we were two years old at the time and couldn’t remember shit fuck, the closest thing was one of the older kids kind of thought they remembered being very confused at adults freaking out over the TV but that could have been literally anything, and so this meant that 2. we were the last class she would ever teach that could possibly remember 9/11. Probably didn’t help that someone pointed out that we were the class born in 1999, so in two years she’d have students that hadn’t even been born during 9/11. That may have contributed to the teacher crying over the whole thing.
That last sentence KILLED me. Jesus fuck.
just wanted to remind people of this in the current context of banning abortion and the recent gun violence by a man believing great replacement theory.
racists desperately want more white babies to be born. they live in absolute terror of becoming a racial minority in America.
