Op is denying us the fucking golden replies to this tweet omg

My mom likes to tell the story of my broken wrist. As they put me down to reset it they asked “you still with us?” I would mumble and they would dose me more, several times later the doc asks “okay Mike you with us?” I go “let’s sing Irish drinkin songs” and proceed to attempt to sing as the doc sings whiskey in the jar in the ER

The other issue is the penalties that American workers face for calling in sick to work.  Many of us go to work and continue life as normal, send kids to school, etc with cold/flu like symptoms until we can’t function anymore.
Businesses may talk a big game of being supportive of workers, but when you’re sick and get a guilt trip for calling out, or in some cases receive action against your work file, they will encourage spread of the virus when it hits the population. The only one who will fix this problem is Bernie Sanders because he’s the only one who supports UHC. We will have to vote for him if we don’t want this to be a problem in the future.

I’m honestly surprised this ISNT being used as a topic of debate, seems like a good outlet for talking about their healthcare plans and what they’re going to do for preparedness in the future.

This is true for the UK as well

I didn’t have a single sick day for six months and then had one because of the flu and got called into a disciplinary where I was told my attendance isnt getting any better and got put on a warning so now I’ll be fired if I have a sick day within the next two months

My boss cut my hours for calling off once in the previous month after witnessing an arson and attempted murder, saying he’d only missed a single shift in the last decade when his doctor literally wouldn’t let him come into work because he had pinkeye. Now he’s threatening to fire me for taking time off to recover from a workplace injury that’s actively aggravated by overwork. Our on-the-books policy is we’re not supposed to come to work when we’re contagiously ill but this is how any and all absences are treated, as a mark against your employment regardless of the context of the absence.

Even if you’re contagious, even if you get a doctor’s note, the fact that you missed a shift is a black mark on your file that puts you that much closer to being fired.

Have I mentioned I work in food service?

This is dangerous in the UK too, I can confirm. I have an office job and I can call in sick whenever, but I have plenty of friends working in hospitality, and most of them lose money if they call in sick because they are paid by the hour and get no sick pay. They may not get fired, but that is still money cannot afford to lose.

A friend kept going to work for a well-known food chain despite flu symptoms last year because missing hours of work would have meant being short on rent and she could not afford that. Her conscience told her she should stay home, but she needed to make rent. So she went to work, with the flu, and made sandwiches the whole day. 

Would you eat a sandwich made by someone with an infectious disease? Me neither. 

But chances are, we did. Several times Because of this shit.

today in “things i’m disproportionately emotional about”:









it’s facial reconstructions of prehistoric humans!!

like, look at this part-homo sapiens, part-neandertal man from well over 30,000 years ago:

doesn’t he just look like a dude you’d wanna hang out with? like he probably washes dishes in the kitchen with you, and has excellent weed

what a charming fellow. what stories he probably has to tell. i’d definitely go shoot the shit with him on Contemplation Rock after i’d finished my day’s work carving a bone flute for the autumn hunting ceremony, or whatever

people have been people ever since people first became people, i tell you what

they all had lives and histories and families and friends and dumb gossip and games they played and total bullshit in which they believed wholeheartedly

they all argued about the nature of the world, and of themselves

they all sang songs

they all drew pictures

they all buried their dead in graves, and they buried their dead in graves well before they did a lot of that other stuff. they buried their dead with flowers, with panther claws, with the bones of animals they’d killed, with the bones of family members who had died at the same time or earlier. they buried their dead with their arms folded across their chests

they fell in love

they took care of their old and their sick and their disabled, even when it cost them

they made new things, and worried about what the new things meant for people everywhere, as a whole

Oh I like him he looks like he would appreciate my jokes

This dude would have great stories at a get-together and would bring some really great homemade dip. 

I feel like he really digs Lo-Fi Music

This guy was sculpted by Alfons and Adrie Kennis, and their Neanderthal reconstructions are all delightful

I love the kid in the last picture a lot- they look like a kid, just a little kid who’s done some mischief and is trying not to laugh about it.

I also adore their Lucy- they’ve struck a wonderful balance between the falling angel and the rising ape.

And their Turkana boy- there’s something precious and wistful in those eyes. 

But my favorite has got to be their reconstruction of H. floresiensis.

Just look at her. That’s a face of someone who’s lived and seen a lot, but also a face that’s known love and joy and laughter. That’s a face with a soul

They are all beautiful

What an amazing work, Kennis & Kennis! 

why… why is Lucy looking at me like she’s my granny?…

she is your granny.
