Two different kinds of unknown seedlings have started growing in the damp sphagnum moss I keep my Sarracenia purpurea in. I have no clue what they are. They must have been mixed in with the dried sphagnum that came with the Sarracenia. I hope they keep growing so I can figure out what the fuck they are.

I love when this happens!

I have those same little green stringy things in the sphagnum moss that my venus flytrap is in! I have also been curious to find out what they are! :>

So stop working at mcdonalds and do something with your life.

Sure! I’ll just reach into my ass and pull out a job! Or, how about I go down to jobland, where jobs grow on jobbies!

Strap on your job helmet and get in the job cannon

…if everyone “stopped working at mcdonalds and did something with their life”, you do realize the entire fast food industry would collapse, right? And if we extend that premise out to other low-wage/low-prestige jobs, society itself would pretty much grind to a halt.
You love to talk shit about retail and food service workers, but who makes your burger and sells you your clothes? Go ahead. Try doing without any labor from someone employed in a low-wage/low-prestige service industry job for a few days. I’ll wait. Good luck.

NEW RULE: If you think working minimum wage jobs is “not doing something with your life” and you look down on the people working those jobs, you’re not allowed to patronize those jobs ANYMORE. No fast food for you! No retail, no coffee shops!

No theaters and no amusement parks either!

Say goodbye to your morning cup of coffee bitches

No places that require the use of a janitorial staff.
That means no school, no public shopping place of any kind, no universities, no airports or train or bus stations.

You can’t call 911 because the operator makes minimum wage. Also sucks to be you if you’re drowning because life guards are minimum wage workers too. 

PREACH


Most retail outlets, for example—including the two largest retailers in the United States (Kroger and Walmart) keep pay for most of their employees at or only slightly above minimum wage. McDonald’s actually pays MORE than those two do in some areas. There are not enough well-paying jobs to go around to everyone who needs to make a living. And your answer is that people should turn down low-paying jobs even when those are all that are available? I’d love to live in your fantasy world where there’s a job that pays a living wage for everybody who needs one, because in this world, it’s not happening. Oh, there’s plenty of money to go around, but it goes to shareholders and top executives, because the people who actually work to make them rich have no power, and they can’t just quit, or they’ll have no income at all. And their bosses know it, and take advantage of it. And a second job? Forget it. Many of these low-paying jobs also refuse to give employees a set schedule, and most forbid moonlighting at any competing company even if you can get a regular enough schedule to work two jobs to begin with.

Our avocado pit split wide open the other day!! After it sitting for a few months not doing anything at all, I was almost ready to give up. I hope this is a sign that it’s going to actually grow eventually. Come on, little avocado pit!!
