in Canada they don’t pronounce Z as "zee"
they pronounce it as "zed" and that is crazy to me
it sounds like they made a typo when they invented it
They do that everywhere in the world that’s not America. We do that here in the UK too.
America is weird man.
So why isn’t C “ced” or D “ded”? Do you call the striped horse-looking animals “zedbras”?
Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.
I’m having a good laugh right now because our associates just got collectively reprimanded for leaning on the counters during 8 hour shifts on their feet, because it isn’t “professional” looking. So apparently they can put up with a camera over their shoulder to make sure they do their jobs correctly, but a cop with a gun cant?
There is only one reason a cop would resist having a bodycam, and it’s the same reason they try to scare you away from filming them and it’s the same reason they’d tape over their badges and it’s the same reason racists love the Anon feature and it’s the same reason the KKK wears hoods.

this is so important.
That story about a 27 year-old Jay Z plotting on Beyonce when she was 16 is weird, in every other scenario he’d be viewed as a pedophile. But since it’s Hova …
and that’s how a lot of pedophiles get away with it is by using their public respectable image and money to seem super-normal
it’s always disturbed me tbfh
That is fucked up
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loathe Ronald Reagan.
I was a little younger than this when Reagan replaced Carter, but it’s funny that just like this guy, I could read the differences in their faces, in the way they spoke. I think you’re more able to detect insincerity and venality perhaps at that age. I felt my heart sink when Reagan won. it felt disquieting to me. and then my fears were well-founded as I spent much of my teens like everyone else living under the constant terror of nuclear annihilation. documentaries on TV all the time about how to build your own fall-out shelter. Fox likes to remember him as the man who said “tear down this wall”, but I remember him as the man who joked “we start bombing in five minutes”. it was fucking terrifying.(via secret-icecream-empress)
