Here’s a tip for succeeding at life: If you’re feeling critical, criticize people who are total jerks and not people who are doing good deeds. Seriously, the fact that she recorded the encounter is the thing that’s got your panties in a knot? Not the fact that some wanker was being a verbally abusive xenophobe? Really?? Maybe it’s time to review your priorities, dude.
Response to What’s Your Go-To Potluck Recipe?:
Smoky, Sweet, & Spicy Beer Chili 1 lb ground meat (I usually use either turkey or chicken but whatever works)
1 white onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 sweet bell pepper, diced (red, orange, yellow, doesn’t matter)
1 medium sweet potato, diced
28 oz can stewed tomatoes
16 oz can hunt’s chili beans in hot sauce
3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp liquid hickory smoke <— IMPORTANT AND DELICIOUS
2-3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup beer (Any beer with a strong flavor, like an Oktoberfest or IPA)
2 tbsp tomato paste
Cayenne pepper to taste (I use quite a bit because I like the spice, but the chili beans in hot sauce usually give the chili some heat by themselves without being overwhelming.) Heat a bit of cooking oil over medium heat in a Dutch oven and cook the ground meat until browned and cooked through. Remove the meat to a plate and add the sweet potato (and more oil if needed) to the Dutch oven and cook about 5 minutes (don’t worry if it hasn’t softened too much — it’ll cook completely later). Add the onion and peppers and cook another 5 minutes or so — then add the garlic and cook for a minute — then add the cooked meat, chili powder, cumin, and cinnamon and cook for another minute. Add all remaining ingredients, stir, and let simmer on low heat for a good while, stirring occasionally. (I try to aim for an hour at least.) You can substitute a cup or so of cooked quinoa for the ground meat for a pretty good vegetarian option. And that’s it! The liquid smoke is really freakin’ good — highly recommend giving it a try. :D

If you read the first 3 chapters of Harry Potter, you’ll find out that wizards actually exist too.

You know who makes money? Vaccine manufacturers. But do you know who makes more money than vaccine manufacturers? Hospitals *and* drug companies when they’re treating idiots who caught preventable illnesses. You know… maybe… just maybe… your conspiracy is stupid, hm?
I watched Good Will Hunting right after Robin Williams’ suicide. The part where he keeps telling Will “it’s not your fault” destroyed me. I ugly cried for a full 20 minutes.
Response to I Asked My Mom Why She Didn’t Vaccinate Me:
There’s a huge difference between having children who cannot be vaccinated, and having kids who can but aren’t because of unfounded fear and ignorance. No one is blaming you for being unable to vaccinate your kids. But you need to be an advocate for *other* people vaccinating their children. Your children are at risk and the best way to protect them is by other parents doing their part and vaccinating.
Response to The 36 Struggles Of Using MyFitnessPal:
That’s like… 400 calories of peanut butter in #17. I shuddered and salivated at the same time.
Sorta, kinda! My wife and I met online and had been chatting for almost 5 months before she came all the way from Croatia to visit me in the US. I’m bisexual and it was sort of my first time with another woman, so our first night together was relatively tame… but the next morning was a different story. :D Two years later, we applied for a fiance visa, which was thankfully granted, and got married last May. <3
Literally, how can Thor be anything but a Norse god? Diversity is awesome and I loved Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury, but seriously, Thor depicted as anything other than a white Scandinavian is… well, not Thor.

Response to This Girl Gave Her Boyfriend The Present Of His Dreams And His Reaction Is Unbelievably Adorable:
My wife and I are opening our presents to each other early because we’ll be traveling to see our families on Christmas. For a lot of people, I think it’s just a matter of busy schedules. :)
