It is time to admit that public education operates like a planned economy. Itâ€™s a bureaucratic system where everybodyâ€™s role is spelled out in advance, and there are few incentives for innovation and productivity. Itâ€™s not a surprise when a school system doesnâ€™t improve. It more resembles a Communist economy than our own market economy.
It’s a classical trope in America – probably across the Civilized World – that a young couple will spend at least their 1st year together eating poorly cooked, burnt suppers. But, while all tropes have a basis in fact, this one is probably extremely misunderstood and paints the wrong picture.
If the cooking is constantly interrupted by other activities, the quality of the food is going to suffer. 😆
Cheese Weasel Day (CWD) is the only Internet holiday. Started around 1993, CWD is celebrated each April 3rd as a fun day dedicated to appreciating people who work in the tech industry.
Sweet Dreams Are Made Of Cheese
Legend has it the Cheese Weasel travels the world, leaving a bit of cheese under keyboards or mouse pads of good techie boys and girls. The type really doesnâ€™t matter though Kraft Singles often is the cheese of choice. However, depending on how often you look under your keyboard, the C.W. might place a wedge of cheddar instead. And if youâ€™re luckyâ€“some cheesecake might appear near your computer!
Behold The Cheese Weasel
Who brings the cheese on April 3rd? The Cheese Weasel! Heâ€™s not a silly bunny or a raindeer or a bird, heâ€™s the Cheese Weasel and he’s flying the world on his woodpecker, delivering cheese to all the techies out there.
On May 13th, 2014, Redditor unserplatz submitted an image macro titled â€œFeminist Frank about women in skimpy clothesâ€ to the radical Feminist TrollXChromosomes subreddit, which urged men to treat women who dress â€œprovocativelyâ€ with respect.
The Original Feminist Frank
Feminist Frank was an instant hit with the Feministas and the next day Redditor donut_think_so posted an Imgur gallery of Feminist Frank image macros which gathered more than 2,600 upvotes and 130 comments in five days. In the next week, several “womenâ€™s interest” and Internet humor sites swooned over them and highlighted notable examples from the series.
And so an internet meme was born, even if it did fail to thrive.
Pardon the pun – or don’t – but I find this meme frankly ironic. 😉 Oh not the irony of the stereotypical college “playa” fratboy they used. That was deliberate and well-done irony to make a point. No, I’m talking about the catchphrases that they chose to use.
Just about every one those phrases was misborn in the “Black Community.” Given the near 100% overlap between modern Feminists and Liberals and/or Progressives, I find it very ironic that they used sexist and misogynist slang from their most precious protected cultural group. It’s also a bit ironic that they paired them with such a White person’s image, given that they proclaim to hate cultural appropriation.
Cat’s know coffee, often better than humans do. They know what is good coffee and what is not.
Of course one must remember that cats’ knowledge of coffee and their discenment between what is good and what is not is not instinctual. It is a learned behavior and there’s little that’s funnier than a kitten’s first lesson in the mysteries of bean and roast.
Whoah! So That’s Coffee
It might seem odd to many that cats know coffee. Most do not realize that cats are very spiritual and, hence, know both the perilous power of coffee and what things lurk just beyond the tenuous barrier between the planes.
They know that your order of a Venti, sugar-free, non-fat, vanilla soy, double shot, decaffinated, no foam, extra hot, Peppermint White Chocolate Peppermint Mocha with light whip, upside-down, 1 pump of peppermint, 1 and 3/8 pumps vanilla, 180 degrees, heavy whip-cream, 3 ice cubes, 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg sprinkled on top, with green sprinkles, lightly cinnamon dusted on, stirred, with no lid, double cupped, and a straw is dangerously close to an eldritch incantation that would have devastating consequences upon yourself and our world.
Coffee is good but it is powerful. Learn from your cats; they know coffee. Order and drink responsibly so as not to cause your barista to rip a hole in space-time to the Outer Darkness that would allow the Elder Old Ones to return and retake this, their world…and your coffee.
