R.I.P. Staff Sergeant “Wild” Bill Guarnere (April 28, 1923 - March 8, 2014)
When I went in, I was eighteen. I thought it was all glory and you win lots of medals. You think you’re going to be the guy. Then you find out the cost is very great. Especially when you don’t see the kids you were with when you went in. Living with it can be hell. It’s like the devil presides in you. I knew what I sighed up for, yes, and I would do it again. But the reality of war—words can’t begin to describe it.
HOW ARE KANGAROOS SO FUCKING BUFF THIS IS LEGIT SCARING ME
i thought this was photoshopped so i googled it
i feel like ive just googled the furry equivalent of those fireman pinup calendars
You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
People who disseminate false information about food stamps are shitty human beings, lets be real honest
It gets better—the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing
Best thing I have ever seen I love cats so much omg
Your cute cat of the day
Not only that, but if you notice at the beginning, the cat *gets the man’s attention* as any person who wanted to talk to a deaf/hoh individual would (well, and vice versa IME). I’ve done sign since I was 5, and generally, w/o eye contact initially, you wave a hand or lightly touch the arm (if that’s ok with the person you’re trying to converse with, of course).
Generally, adult cats meow mostly to humans, but this cat has figured out that’s not going to work and has adapted. Animal companions! They are INCREDIBLE.
What a smart, sweet kitty!
this is the cutest thing ever omg
What impresses me most, on repeated viewing, is the little paw-swipe through the air that the cat does before bringing its paw to its mouth. It isn’t just patting its mouth; watch how carefully it braces itself before making that swipe, both times, like that’s the hardest part of what it’s doing.
I think it’s trying to mimic the finger-and-thumb grasping motion that accompanies the “food” gesture. Without opposable thumbs, that little swipe with pads extended is the closest it can get.
Cats, man. So amazing.
