'SJW' Puts Climate-Change Denier In His Place

Former Toronto Sun Editor Lorrie Goldstein claimed in a tweet that no "SJW" would be able to explain the actual science behind climate change. He was in for a significant amount of embarrassment when Writer and Content Strategist Karen Geier replied to the tweet with a whole arsenal of facts and evidence.

By the way, what believing in climate change has to do with being an SJW, we'll never know...

Twitter Thread About Sick Days In The Service Industry Is Depressing As Hell

Most of us have had to or will have to work in the customer service industry at some point in our lives. Whether that be bartending, serving, or working at a grocery store, all of these jobs have one thing in common: virtually no opportunity for paid sick days, which can lead to employees infecting others and even ridicule from management if one dares to take a day off.

Writer Lauren Hough took to Twitter to highlight these problems, and we have to say that it's very informative and 100% worth the read.

And once again, here's a link to some hilarious (yet ultimately depressing) memes about our "wonderful" healthcare system!

Earthquakes are arguably the most terrifying of all the natural disasters due to their unexpected nature - unlike tornadoes or hurricanes, it's nearly impossible to plan for an earthquake or know when one is about to strike. This particular earthquake, which occurred in Japan in 2011, was followed by a tsunami and the infamous Fukushima reactor meltdowns. It was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan.

And of course, we gotta give props to the brave person who filmed the whole terrifying event from an airport!

Potluck Twitter Thread Spins Cringey Tale Of No Seasoning & Extra Salmonella

The whole "white people don't season their food" thing sometimes feels offensive to those of us who lack melanin and worship the spice cabinet, but this Twitter story is proof that the stereotype exists for good reason. Twitter user @cavebeauty experienced the horror first-hand at a company potluck when her colleague brought raw chicken and a deep fryer to the event. Not only did he decline seasoning the chicken before frying it, but he was handling the chicken with his bare hands and touching stuff without washing them. Disturbing. Hopefully you'll read this nightmare long after digging into lunch. 

Funny twitter story about dude bringing raw chicken to company potluck, cringe | tweet by caveofbeauty My coworker brought raw chicken to the potluck today. And yes, yes he is. I'm literally shaking n.I need my inhaler. he's just casually walking around the room touching things after touching RAW CHICKEN. This entire place is contaminated. Oh my god Update: He just bit into one to see if it's cooked. It's still raw.

Tumblr Thread Reveals True Meaning & Full Versions Of Classic Proverbs

I can't remember the first time I was told that "curiosity killed the cat" but it was probably by my mother. The petite neurotic woman was convinced that at any moment something terrible was about to happen to one of her brood. While it's been many years since I realized the adage was antithetical to a rich and full life, it wasn't until this Tumblr thread that I realized there was more to the proverb. As it turns out, the phrase is not meant to ward off healthy curiosity. The thread doesn't stop the splainin' there, either. We've never felt more sure of ourselves regarding the use of tired proverbs. Knowledge truly is power.

tumblr thread about the full version of classic proverbs | curiosity killed cat is actually not full phrase actually is"curiosity killed cat but satisfaction brought back" so don't let anyone tell not be curious little baby okay go and be interested world See also: Blood is thicker than water- blood covenant is thicker than water womb. Meaning relationships formed by choice are stronger than those formed by birth.

Fascinating Twitter Thread Sheds Light On Beethoven's Complicated Life

As laypeople, we have the tendency to put brilliant artists on a pedestal, forgetting that they too are human just like us. However, more often than not they face the same sorts of adversities as the rest of us would, and sometimes making it big just comes down to sheer luck.

Composer Ludwig van Beethoven was certainly of no exception, as this fascinating Twitter thread written by classical pianist doodlyroses will explain. It may be long, but trust us when we say that it's completely worth the read.

Interesting Twitter thread about Beethoven's life | tweet by doodlyroses Another thing people overlook they get hung up on deaf-guy-writing-music thing; they see music through an abled lens which deafness is something Beethoven overcame, not something which deafness actually led unique creative decisions!
