I'm a different person, but I'm a Russian immigrant, and we have some serious racism. People think of Roma as basically subhuman. After my parents moved here they were rapidly like "omg these black people do all this crime!" The anti-Semitism was breathtaking; my mom couldn't go to the college she wanted specifically… » 12/17/14 10:36am Wednesday 10:36am

I wouldn't work if I didn't have to. I'd just paint. Why not do that as a career you say? Well I like making money for one, and marketing yourself as an artist sounds way more miserable than what I do for a living for another. So yeah, I'd retire to do what I love no strings attached. Sheesh. » 12/15/14 9:23am Monday 9:23am

I'm not even supposed to be typing (injury), but CANNOT resist - that guy goes too far out of the way to say he's a POC and does not like "people like him" being "pandered to." If that was written by a POC, I have a bridge to sell you. » 12/06/14 4:47pm 12/06/14 4:47pm

Hah, you might know this already, but California tried to pass a proposition to drug test doctors. It failed 60-40. I had an argument with a coworker about it (we're actually doctors of furthings) and I told her that if it passes she needs to be prepared for a lot of fired doctors. She was pearl-clutching shocked I'd… » 11/21/14 10:31am 11/21/14 10:31am

I've been disturbed by a recent trend of people saying that photographers shouldn't be paid because photography is a hobby and anyone can be a photographer. Ok, I have a DSLR I play with. The idea that my pictures are as good as a professional's is absurd. I'm conceited enough to think I could be really good if I… » 11/20/14 7:27am 11/20/14 7:27am

Wait, hold on. You shouldn't spend $x on your cat, you should put it down and get another one from a shelter so you can put that one down when it gets sick? Yah, LOGIC. It's a cat, not a used car! I'm in the furry health care field, by the way, and we love people like you and I'm sorry people have said shitty things… » 11/17/14 4:05pm 11/17/14 4:05pm

Mr. strange always helps me cook dinner, always vacuums, and does the dishes probably about 75% of the time. I do the laundry and the bathroom. We used to fight because I was the slob. And he still says to me "thank you for making dinner" if I end up doing all or most of it. See, it's possible! » 11/16/14 3:11pm 11/16/14 3:11pm
