WHOA WHOA WHOA. excuse me.But the minimum wage is set for teenagers with first jobs/ college students TO GET EXPERIENCE. Because a higher paying job isn’t going to higher you unless ypu have experience. AND YOU GET THAT EXPERIENCE BY WORKING AT MINIMUM PAYING JOBS. and the higher paying jobs are harder jobs which is why they get more money. If you raise the minimum wage, then companies wont have the money to pay more employees so they look for the people with the most experience…So if companies can only higher people with experience and you dont have any because companies DONT HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY YOU?? well then you are never going to get a job. And when the minimum wage goes up, the price of everything goes up.And then we have the minimum wage earners complaining again.So stop saying that the minimum wage needs to be raised because it doesnt.What needs to happen is we need a better economy and thanks to obama, thats not going to happen for a while because obama doesn’t know what hes doing.So if you want to make more money, get experience and a better paying job.

You’re a shitty economist buddy.
Less than 15% of minimum wage worker’s are teenagers (age 14-19), the rest are adults aged 20 and over (85.7%). So lets stop pretending that these jobs are meant for students. The economy is shit and unfortunately, people have to settle for low wages because the alternative often is unemployment.
Higher paying jobs doesn’t equate to ‘harder jobs’. Often, the higher a position is, the less labor you are required to do.
"And when the minimum wage goes up, the price of everything goes up."
Inflation doesn’t necessarily work that way. Obviously, you’re just regurgitating the bullshit theories conservatives spew out while disregarding the statistics and history that proves otherwise. But since you’re using that argument, why not raise the minimum wage with the rise of inflation? Or productivity even?
If we had raised the minimum wage with the rise of productivity since 1968, it would currently be $21.72. In other words, we are creating far more and producing more profit for corporations, while being paid for a third of what we use to.
What do you have to say about that?
And raising the minimum wage to $10.10 will raise 1.7 million families out of poverty and reduce the need for them to use public assistance, saving the federal government $7.6 billion per year. Would you say you’re you against that?
The current federal minimum wage is $7.25. In none of the 50 states is that enough money to pay the average rent for a 2-bedroom apartment. 
The minimum wage used to be able to keep a family of 3 above the poverty line. Now, the minimum wage can’t even keep a single parent working 40 hours a week, for an entire year without a single day off, above the poverty line.
When you raise the minimum wage, you’re putting more money into the pockets of the lower/working class. Their money is directly put back into the economy when the buy food, pay bills and generally spend their money. As oppose to higher paid people who have the luxury of saving their earnings. That means that businesses will generally make more money because the working class has more money to spend.
That’s my argument for raising the minimum wage, I would love to see your attempt to counter it.

Most of the lions bred and raised in captivity in South Africa are destined for canned hunts.  Canned hunting is where a captive-bred animal is set loose in an area to be shot with no fair means of escape — this can be due to either physical constraints (such as being fenced in a small enclosed space; or from being preemptively lured in or drugged) or mental constraints (being hand-raised by humans and effectively having all natural fear of mankind removed.)
Numerous lion breeding farms, many of which run out of South Africa and mask themselves as conservation-based sanctuaries or rescues, provide a steady supply of new stock animals for this purpose.  To offset the high expense of raising and feeding these surplus lions, these parks offer cub petting — a very popular tourist attraction and lure for international volunteers which directly supports and funds the rapidly flourishing canned hunting industry.
All the while, tourists and volunteers continue to pay for the privilege, none-the-wiser of what their money is supporting or where the cubs they cuddle are actually going.
Please avoid any facility that offers cub petting, and educate friends and family on the truth of canned lion hunting.

Where there are wolves, there are ravens. Ravens follow wolves around a lot, mostly because they just seem to like them. They aren’t known to follow other predators and they prefer to eat with the wolves instead of alone. Source

wait are you telling me that wolves keep ravens as petscause this is the most goth thing ever since My Immortal

It would be an easier way for the raven’s to get food. And I bet the wolf doesn’t mind the companionship either.

it’s mutualism! Ravens circle ungulate herds and wolf packs, wolves see them, find the animal faster, kill the animal and open up the carcass(which ravens can’t peck through), and then the ravens eat and the nice juicy bits.
oh, and the pet anology is back-assward. ravens play with wolves. and more importantly, wolf pups. you know how animals raised together from a young age are super tolerant of one another? ravens exploit that to get better access to carcasses. 

yeah i was gonna say it sounds more like the ravens are keeping the wolves as pets

This is an interesting case of human language parameters (or, anyway, English language parameters) influencing the tone of a neutral fact. The intimation of an owner/pet relationship is the result of a species who hasn’t been anywhere but top of the food chain in living memory, and for whom creatures of the wild have long since been tamed and house-broken.
However, ~500,000 years ago, when early humans were first emerging from Africa, we developed a similar relationship with wolves. It’s theorized that humans and wolves, both being highly social pack hunters, noticed the similarity in their hunting styles and quickly learned the benefit of a creature on the hunt.
This is one of my favorite images of prehistoric man, and one that doesn’t appear much in media- wolf teaching man, through action, of the habits and strategies necessary to take down the megafauna of the time. Man and wolf as equals in a world of giants, hesitantly friendly when time permitted. Before we were the masters of the world, we were just another animal. These sorts of mutualistic relationships are more common in nature than one might expect, but that’s entirely because we approach it from a human exceptionalist perspective.

How to take stalker pictures when you see an attractive person

That’s very unethical and creepy.

please fucking destroy this culture of taking photos of random strangers you see in public like i dont give a fuck if its because you think theyre cute. this is an unsolicited action upon another persons body. how can anyone think this is acceptable
