I am now identifying as swagkin. I require swag, swags, and swagself pronouns. Not doing so will trigger my swag dysphoria. It will remind me that I am too poor to have swag. You also must call me Jesse. Please don’t tell me I’m wrong. This is how God made me.
Fun Fact: In Germany you need a coin in order to operate shopping carts.
Isn’t this everywhere in Europe? I know this is the case in the Netherlands and France as well….
Yup. Same in portugal
It’s certainly a thing in the supermarkets I go into in Britain
are you serious
In the US we have ALDI, which also uses that system. But it is the only place I’ve seen it in the US.
What was so great about Mewtwo, anyway.
Edit: Fixed the typo.
we went on a field trip to the zoo last week

Common Core also has data mining
Schools have already added Iris scanners for students to use, and also tracking ID cards students have to keep on them. As well as knowing what your religion is, what political views you have, are you gay and other very personal irrelevant information and other intrusive questions. It also inserts political views and ideologies into test and assignment questions and word problems. Global warming, presidential executives orders, rewording and changing the meaning to things like amendments in the constitution. It leaves the bureaucrats in Washington and the federal government in total control to dictate how what gets taught in schools on an unproven experimental program that comes with a hefty price tag for its uniform standard cookie cutter one size fits all approach to education, killing teacher flexibility and specialized education for individual students. Because common core is for primary school, once you enter high school, the learning curve will be steeper than it ever was before when you have to forgot common core, and do things the old way that is still used in high school, that you would have learned in primary school to begin with before common cores creation.
Initially common core was touted as being this super effective form of teaching that proved highly successful over seas, but they had to recant those claims when people here began to review it and research the claims. Then the federal government said they would not give federal funding to states that did not accept common core, forcing them to accept it if they wanted funding.
If you do not know why one of the pics is considered bad, let me know and I will explain.
I know mothers who are pulling their kids out of school right and left and looking for ways to home-school them because of ^THIS BULLSHIT.
Pardon my French.
But this is bullshit.
Every time I read about the American education system I thank fucking God for being born in Europe.
My mother is a math teacher at a charter school that doesn’t use common core and tells me about how a ton more peoples tarted trying to get into her school when the main district started using common core. People aren’t joking when they say that parents are literally changing their children’s school to get out of this shit.
It’s not about thinking. Everything reproduces…organisms that don’t have the desire to reproduce don’t reproduce and thus their genes don’t get passed on. If a whole species stopped wanting to reproduce, they would be extinct in one generation. Only organisms that succeed in reproducing pass their genetic information to the next generation.
In fact, complicated brains and (and the social structures that require them) actually interfere with the genetic imperative for reproduction…allowing people to live entire, satisfied lives without passing their genetic information on (which is contrary to what their genes were designed for.)
One final point…sometimes we portray early humans as brutish…only caring about survival and sex with the men clubbing women and dragging them back to their caves. From what we can tell, early human societies were nothing like that. They were socially and culturally complicated. They had myths and culture and art and music and love and families just like we do.
Funny how the people who raged on ‘Frozen’ as supposedly responsible for every evil under the sun ‘cuz it’s another kids movie that stars white folks are the same ones who rave about ‘The Avengers’…
A movie that stars 5+ white guys…….
And the one black guy and white woman conveniently shoved at the back in the poster……………
I don’t see none of y’all raising hell over this……..
This reminds me that Frozen has two prominent female characters and the rest are male. I’d hardly call that amazing by any means.
Daft Punk’s cameo in Tron: Legacy.
Wait is that actually Daft Punk or did they just base the costumes off them or something?
