America, Community, and Cute: Mira Jacob @mirajacob Two things I didn't know until I was yesterday years old: 1) Memorial Day was started by African Americans honoring fallen Union solders 2) The Statue of Liberty was gifted to America to celebrate freed slaves, not immigrants.

It reminds me of that post about coconut husks as a wood alternative that’s been circulating recently - a screenshot of a white man above a news article is posted with the complaint that white people “discovering” coconuts after disregarding them as useless when the article is about a new method of processing coconut husks that allows them to be put to new uses. That blog is fascinating. And has a lot in common with thatpettyblackgirl - both of them reblog their own posts at a rate that’s higher than I’ve seen on most tumblrs (btw, you should know that a while back I asked for volunteers who would let me explore their tumblrs and while my research sample isn’t random it is a collection of small and large blogs and none of them have *checks notes* reblogged their own post of a bunch of screencaps of a tweet storm five times in the last couple of days). Both of them tend to post screencaps, neither one really writes much. They reblog a lot of memes, and both have some pretty big textposts that are just straight rip-offs of tweets (”bi folks have you eaten today? answer quick and iced coffee doesn’t count” is one of thatpettyblackgirl’s recent popular textposts and it’s ripped off from twitter.) They also reblog eachother a fair amount - along with @whyyoustabbedme and @endangered-justice-seeker, who ALSO have really weird posting patterns. Also all four of those blogs are part of a group of nine blogs that were created in a three-week period of 2017 that I’ve been watching that don’t seem to follow a pattern of normal tumblr behavior and that also post an awful lot of incorrect viral posts and are staggeringly popular (for clarity: blackqueerblog is not one of the nine created in that time period).

If Jewison had made the film, he planned the opening scene with an immigrant carrying a sick child up the stairs of a tenement building.

Please direct your attention towards the manga.As you can see there are small pieces of paper sticking out of every volume.But no such paper is sticking out of the Batman comic.The reason?

Your honor! Please direct your attention towards the manga.As you can see there are small pieces of paper sticking out of every volume.But no such paper is sticking out of the Batman comic.The reason? The Batman book doesn’t belong to the library. The photographer put it there to take a picture.

Then everyoneI have Fun Facts like "elephants are ACTUALLY closely related to rock hyraxes!! Even though they look nothing alike!!" e realized abou t genes and evolution and so on, and so now we These Fun Facts are appealing because they're not intuitive. So why is dog-sorting intuitive? Well, because if you eliminate all the other possibilities, most dogs are dogs. To process Things- whether animals, words, situations or experiences our brains categorise the most important things about them, and then compare these to our memory banks. If we've experienced the same thing before- whether first-hand or through a story then we know what's happening, and we proceed accordingly If the New Thing is completely New, then t question marks, shunts into a different track, counts up all the Similar Traits, and assigns it a provisional category based on its similarity to other Things. We then experience the Thing, exploring it further, and he brain pings up a Our brain t categorises the New based on the knowledge and traits. That is how humans experience the universe. We do our best, and we generally do it well. This is the basis of stereotyping. It behaviours (racism), some of our most challenging problems (trauma), helps us survive (stories) and sharing the ability with things that dont have it leads to some of our most whimsical creations (artificial In fact, one reason that humans are so wonderfully successful is that we can effectively gain knowledge from experiences without having experienced them personally! You dont have to eat all the berries to find the poisonous ones. You can just remember stories and descriptions of berries, and compare those to the ones you've just discovered. You can benefit from memorics that aren't your own! On the other hand, if you had a terribly traumatic experience involving say, an eagle, then your brain will try to protect you in every way possible from a similar experience. If you collect too many traumatic experiences with eagles, then your brain will not enjoy eagle-shapecd New Things. In fact, if New Things match up to too many cagle-like noise!! 。The hot Glare of the Yellow Eye CLAWS VERY BAD VERY BAD Then the brain may shunt the train of thought back into trauma, and the person will actually experience the New Thing as trauma. Even if the New Thing was something apparently unrelated, like being generally pointy, or having a hot glare. (This is an overly simplistic explanation of how triggers work, but it's the one most accessible to people.) So the answer rests in how we categorise dogs, and what "dog" means to humans. Human brains associate dogs with universal categories, such efour legs Mcat Eater e Soft friend An BORK BORK Anything we have previously experienced and learned as A Dog gets added to the memory bank. Sometimes it brings new categories along with it. So a lifetime's experience results in excellent dog-intuition And anything we experience with, say, a 90% match is officially a Dog. Brains are super good at eliminating things, too. So while the concept of physical doggo-ness is pretty nebulous, and has to include greyhounds and Pekingese and mastiffs, we know that even if an animal LOOKS like a bear, if the other categories don't match up in context (bears are not usually soft friends, they don't Bork Bork, they don't have long tails to wag) then it is statistically more likely to be a Doggo. If it occupies a dog-shaped space then it is usually a dog. So if you see someone dragging a fluffy whatnot along on a string, you will go, Mop? (Unlikely-seems to be self propelled.) ° Alien? (Unlikely-no real alien ever experienced.) Threat? (Vastly unlikely in context.) Rabbit? (No. Rabbits hop, and this appears to scurry.) (Brains are very keen on categorising movement patterns. This is why lurching zombies and bad CGl are so uncomfortable to experience, brains just go INCORRECT!! That is WRONG!" Without consciously knowing why. Anyway, very few animals move like domestic dogs!) Very fluffy cat? (Maybe-but not quite. Shares many characteristics, though!) Eldritch horror? (No, it is obviously a soft friend of unknown type) Robotic toy? (Unlikely too complex and convincing.) animal detected!!! Thi s is a good animal!! This is pleasing!! It may be appropriate to laugh at this animal, because we have just realized that it is probably a DOG!! Soft friend, alive, walks on leash. It had a low doggo-ness quotient! and a confusing Snout, but it is NOT those other Known Things, and it occupies a dog-shaped space! Hahahaha!!! It is extra funny and appealing, because it made us guess!! We love playing that game * PING! NEW CATEGORIES ADDED TO "Doggo set mopness, floof. Snout. And that's why most dogs are dogs.

 These Fun Facts are appealing because they're not intuitive.
 So why is dog-sorting intuitive?
 Well, because if you eliminate all the other possibilities, most dogs are
 dogs.
 To process Things- whether animals, words, situations or experiences
 our brains categorise the most important things about them, and then
 compare these to our memory banks. If we've experienced the same
 thing before- whether first-hand or through a story then we know
 what's happening, and we proceed accordingly
 If the New Thing is completely New, then t
 question marks, shunts into a different track, counts up all the Similar
 Traits, and assigns it a provisional category based on its similarity to
 other Things. We then experience the Thing, exploring it further, and

 This is the basis of stereotyping. It

 helps us survive (stories) and sharing the ability with things that dont

 In fact, one reason that humans are so wonderfully successful is that we
 can effectively gain knowledge from experiences without having
 experienced them personally! You dont have to eat all the berries to
 find the poisonous ones. You can just remember stories and
 descriptions of berries, and compare those to the ones you've just
 discovered. You can benefit from memorics that aren't your
 own!
 On the other hand, if you had a terribly traumatic experience involving
 say, an eagle, then your brain will try to protect you in every way
 possible from a similar experience. If you collect too many traumatic
 experiences with eagles, then your brain will not enjoy eagle-shapecd
 New Things. In fact, if New Things match up to too many cagle-like

 Then the brain may shunt the train of thought back into trauma, and
 the person will actually experience the New Thing as trauma. Even if
 the New Thing was something apparently unrelated, like being
 generally pointy, or having a hot glare. (This is an overly simplistic
 explanation of how triggers work, but it's the one most accessible to
 people.)
 So the answer rests in how we categorise dogs, and what "dog" means to
 humans. Human brains associate dogs with universal categories, such
 efour legs
 Mcat Eater
 e Soft friend
 An
 BORK BORK
 Anything we have previously experienced and learned as A Dog gets
 added to the memory bank. Sometimes it brings new categories along
 with it. So a lifetime's experience results in excellent dog-intuition
 And anything we experience with, say, a 90% match is officially a Dog.
 Brains are super good at eliminating things, too. So while the concept
 of physical doggo-ness is pretty nebulous, and has to include
 greyhounds and Pekingese and mastiffs, we know that even if an animal
 LOOKS like a bear, if the other categories don't match up in context
 (bears are not usually soft friends, they don't Bork Bork, they don't have
 long tails to wag) then it is statistically more likely to be a Doggo. If it
 occupies a dog-shaped space then it is usually a dog.
 So if you see someone dragging a fluffy whatnot along on a string, you
 will go,
 Mop? (Unlikely-seems to be self propelled.)
 ° Alien? (Unlikely-no real alien ever experienced.)
 Threat? (Vastly unlikely in context.)
 Rabbit? (No. Rabbits hop, and this appears to scurry.) (Brains are very
 keen on categorising movement patterns. This is why lurching zombies
 and bad CGl are so uncomfortable to experience, brains just go
 INCORRECT!! That is WRONG!" Without consciously knowing why.
 Anyway, very few animals move like domestic dogs!)
 Very fluffy cat? (Maybe-but not quite. Shares many characteristics,
 though!)
 Eldritch horror? (No, it is obviously a soft friend of unknown type)
 Robotic toy? (Unlikely too complex and convincing.)
 animal detected!!! Thi
 s is a good animal!! This is
 pleasing!! It may be appropriate to laugh at this animal, because we have
 just realized that it is probably a
 DOG!! Soft friend, alive, walks on leash. It had a low doggo-ness
 quotient! and a confusing Snout, but it is NOT those other Known
 Things, and it occupies a dog-shaped space!
 Hahahaha!!! It is extra funny and appealing, because it made us
 guess!! We love playing that game
 * PING! NEW CATEGORIES ADDED TO "Doggo set mopness, floof.
 Snout.
 And that's why most dogs are dogs. You're so good at identifying dog
 shaped spaces that they can't be anything else!

Dear sick Kitties, Please save this to your computer because one day you might be well enough to work in some capacity and it’s unfair for you to have blank spots on your resume/CV. You have worth and validity even if you don’t have a huge work history. YOU have value.


This is mostly really good, but I have a couple minor disagreements.  So…here are three recommendations from an HR person who reads a shitton of resumes every day:

Move the skills section up to the top!  You know what I give a fuck about the most when I’m reading a resume (at least for entry-level positions)?  WHAT YOU CAN DO.  I frankly don’t give a shit where you learned it.  Tell me what you’re capable of in concrete terms, organized in a bullet-points list or table that I can quickly scan to see if you even stand a chance of matching what we need, because that is all I’m doing in those critical first couple of seconds that decides whether I even bother looking at the rest of the resume.  (Which I get sounds kinda callous but when I have to get through a couple dozen resumes, meaning download, open, read, decide what to do, forward it to the appropriate person if it makes the cut with my comments/summary/recommendations, file it appropriately and go on to the next one, and get back to my other duties and responsibilities - which I don’t have enough hours in the day for as it is - I can’t afford to depth-read every single resume that hits my inbox.)

Include volunteer experience as work experience if you have any.  Running the concession stand at a high school club event of some kind counts as cash handling and customer service experience.  Making blog themes for your friends counts as web design experience.  Just because you weren’t getting paid doesn’t mean it wasn’t work experience you can potentially leverage to get actual paying work.

Rework that top statement - in its current form it’s looking like some odd hybrid of an executive summary (good!) and an objective statement (bad!), and I’m not sure how I feel about it tbh.  I think it’s the “leveraging…to positively contribute” bit that is pushing all my “ugh no fucking shit sherlock” buttons.  Like…what were you going to say, that you want to skate along doing the bare minimum amount of work and you don’t give a shit about the organization’s goals?  I see way too many regurgitated statements like that - “positively contribute” and “maximize success” and “utilize my skills to further goals” etc. - and they just make my eyes roll out of my head at this point because they’re so generically corporate.  I’d rather see a declarative statement about what you are and what you can do, than what you want.
