Beast is a steak and crab joint that’s both deeply silly and ruinously pricey. But the owners are deadly serious, says Jay Rayner
This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York. This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.
Talk about a cover having nothing to do with the interior…
They’re arguing the right to euthanasia right now in Canada Parliament and court and the only argument I have heard really against it is ‘God is supposed to decide’ and ‘well we’ll have 100,000 euthanasia’s a year!!!’
So basically religion and slippery slopes are all you…
The only viable point against euthanasia I have ever heard was that it puts undue stress on the elderly, particularly in resource-poor setting, to end their lives over treatable conditions just so they wouldn’t become a financial and/or personal burden on their families.
Though that would easily be remedied by widely socialised healthcare that also includes the payment of care-personnel for the elderly, so that the families don’t have to build their lives around them, and improved investments into palliative care.
Basically, the discussion about euthanasia is the same as the one about abortion: Both of those activities would only occur in neglible amounts if we were willing to invest a little bit more money to improve people’s lives. And the only reason why there are debates over both of these things is because it is simply cheaper to outlaw them in order to make them go away (only, not).
Remember in 1993 when Jurassic Park was like…the end all, be all of special effects?
not gonna lie that still looks intimately real
I’m still somewhat convinced that someone sold their soul to create the special effects in Jurassic Park because that shit is over 20 years old and it still really, really holds up, better than the stuff in a lot of current movies, even.
Fucking witchcraft, man.
That would be because everybody uses alost exclusively CGI now, while Jurassic Park used a mix between CGI and excellent animatronics.
Percent without health insurance by US state, 2008-2014
Texas is called the lonely star state because wishing upon a falling star is still the only way how a poor person may receive health care there.
There is no era of television that inspires such a pure, fervent nostalgia as the Golden Age of Nickelodeon. During the late ’80s and early ’90s, the network aired wonderful and strange series that…
What a fuckhead…

[Action comics #4]
See, I don’t get that. We have tons and tons of characters in superhero comics that have just powers. They are strong not because of their bodies, but because they, like, are solar-powered. They are fast not because of their bodies, but because of a connection to the speed force. They stick to walls, form constructs with their minds, fly, not because of their bodies.
Superhero comics are the last place we need to have impossibly buff physiques. The characters (for the most part) are super-human. They have transcended the need for top-model bodies.
Superman has no need for cardio, is what I’m saying.
I have so much respect for CAPTAIN AMERICA, one of my favorite all-time superheroes, that I wish I could meet this guy(?) personally and kick him in the nuts a redundant amount of times. I want there to be foxing on my new steel toe boots when I’m done mashing his gonads, and then I’m taking his/her wallet to get new ones, and if he’s smart the ambulance will have taken him to a clinic somewhere beyond county borders. He looks like Cap was put through a WWF process. Shiny boots with little shields??? Those shiny knee pads, I suspect have something to do with how he earns his money in the San Francisco metropolitan area, where he very likely uses most of it on an expensive perm, used as a napkin, once he’s done earning that cash in some back alley, after ingesting contraband over GHB and Rohypnol laced drinks. For the same reasons your eyes making you laugh and wretch simultaneously, It with it’s Fabio-gone-wrong hair gets a (joke costume of the worst sort) 3.0-DW.
Hey Asstard, If you’re going to set-up an entire blog just to nit-pick and rag on cosplayers and costumers you should at least make sure that you actually know what the fuck you’re on about.
That is NOT “Captain America”, that is American Dream and the person who’s testicles you seen to have taken umbridge with is CLEARLY without them.
Look at that fuckass, respecting Captain America so much he/she (but really, very probably he) doesn’t know about different versions of the character.
