Q: I make $15 an hour doing work that actually requires my brain, if they raise the minimum wage and I'm quitting and finding a career flipping burgers lol

demonic-lionfish:

Working with your hands does not preclude working with your mind.

Take my job for example. You may call what I do “unskilled” or what a line cook does “just flipping burgers”, but that is because of a classist bias against blue collar work. I am a prep cook. Every day I utilize my knowledge of physics to successfully balance and carry multiple dishes and ingredients in my hands, as well as to lift objects that someone of my size should not be able to lift. I use my logical analysis skills to figure out which recipes need to be made first, and even then to further prioritize on a number of criteria, because it is paramount that certain items are ready before open and that all items are made as soon as possible. I use basic division and multiplication to determine ingredient amounts for recipes depending on how many times we need them made, which has been projected given the day and other criteria like weather that affect our guest volume. I will do this math across multiple measuring systems, converting up and down on two different scales depending on how a recipe is written. I use a knowledge cache of cooking techniques, which require studying and practice, to execute dishes to perfection and I must do it perfectly every time, or else it’s waste.

And the line? Try making 30 burgers at the same time. All of these have side dishes that guests pick from a list of five sides. All 30 entrees came to you at the same time. You’re on grill and hot sides, and you have a coworker on pantry and a coworker on hot box that fulfill other sides and entrees that don’t require the flat top, convection stove, or fryer. All of these have to go out around the same time, but you can only make two or three plates at a time tops. This is pretty complex time management man, especially when you factor in the fact that beef is ordered to different taste and you have to keep track of that too.

Judging by this question, you aren’t qualified to “flip burgers”.

redphilistine:

One of the themes of Tolkien’s works is that “North” and “West” equal enlightenment, civilization, and salvation while “South” and “East” represents darkness and evil. I don’t think this is an accident or coincidence, it’s quite clearly the result of Tolkien’s biases and perhaps bigotry. So I take great pleasure in analyzing his heroes as metaphors for real-life “Eastern” people, who his works demeaned.

25 things i wish i realized while i was still in highschool
  1. That zit on your cheek literally does not matter
  2. Skipping class one time will not ruin your entire life
  3. The boy you’re trying so hard to impress will mean nothing to you in a year
  4. Bring coffee to school and ignore people who make fun of it
  5. Bring a snack, too. Don’t care if people hear you eating in class.
  6. Being popular isn’t and will never be something that seriously defines who you are
  7. Appreciate your teachers
  8. Doing/not doing drugs doesn’t make you cooler than anyone else.
  9. Neither does drinking
  10. Talk to the kid sitting alone; even though it may not change your life it could drastically change theirs
  11. Participate in school events
  12. Wear sweatpants everyday
  13. Or wear a dress everyday
  14. Wear whatever makes you comfortable
  15. Nobody will laugh at you if you sit alone at your lunch table for five minutes
  16. Utilize the library
  17. Don’t wait 20 minutes to text someone back just to seem cool
  18. Tell your friends how much you love them
  19. Cherish your free textbooks… seriously
  20. Help confused freshmen, be nice to them. Remember how much you would have appreciated it a couple years ago
  21. Compliment the other girls in the bathroom
  22. That fight you had with your mom really isn’t that big of a deal
  23. It’s okay to cry
  24. Don’t let your desire for a romantic relationship stop you from forming platonic relationships
  25. Remember that life does go on

I think that the USA needs to move on from September 11th.
Now before all you pseudo-patriots come attempting to sway my opinion with your “unwavering loyalty to the country”, let me just take a minute to explain things. I am an American. I’m a female. And I was a young girl when the events took place.
The events are tragic. I’m not saying that they aren’t. But the US government and the media make it out to be some worldwide catastrophe that claimed the lives of millions of people around the world, when really, the event only killed about 2,600 people, which in the grand scheme of things for a large country like the United States isn’t a huge number.
Also, we’re Americans. Not only are we extremely self-absorbed with our ignorance, fueled by the liberally biased media, we’re hardly sympathetic for our victims. We forced unspeakable violence upon the natives when we came here, we killed almost 150,000 people in dropping the atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and we’ve pointlessly murdered innocent people in the Middle East.
I understand that a lot of people died, and I should be respecting them. But while we honor the dead, we can’t have these extravagant 2-hour TV specials reading the names of all these people who died 12 years after the disaster. You don’t see Japan having these insane specials reading off the names of people who died in their terrorist attacks. Yes, that qualifies as a terrorist attack.
I honestly don’t care anymore. Terrorist attacks happen all the time in other countries every day. Just because this one happened in America doesn’t make it any different. It was a terrible thing that happened, but it’s been 12 years. We killed Osama. Why we are still in Iraq, I will never know, but that’s a story for another time. The USA is comparable to a person who still clings to their ex-spouse or significant other years after they broke up.
We have to move on with our lives. Not forget about it completely, but just move on and keep in it the back of our thoughts.

Finally.
Finally someone says it.
Kudos.

im Canadian and I even felt gulty saying it. but this post is true as fuck.

you deserve the Wisdom Nobel Prize though

This is what happens when a smoker quits. Pass it on.

This is so important

How does this not have more notes?! Seriously, take the time to read this because it could save a life. Or SEVERAL.

I like this better than the anti-smoking advertisements on TV that try to scare the shit out of you.
