What Would You Do? (x)
yeah, same. and I really appreciate that the guy himself says “That wasn’t heroic. That was just…being a person.”
when we think minimum decency is extraordinary, that’s a sad commentary on our state of affairs.
i could go into the kitchen and make soup right now. i could chop up a whole onion and put it in there and nobody could stop me. i could put cereal in it. i could dump the whole bowl onto the floor and roll around in it naked while barbie girl plays and then order ten of those 7 foot long gummy snakes online and nobody could do a goddamned thing. being an adult is terrifying
Fast food and retail workers to walk out nationwide Aug. 29
If you go to your local McDonald’s, or Wendy’s, or KFC or Burger King on August 29, you may find something unusual: A picket line. And as one New York Times food columnist wrote last month, “If you want to show support, don’t cross it.”
And the same caution applies if you drop in at a major retailer - Macy’s is prominently mentioned - to take advantage of a “pre-Labor Day sale.” More pickets.
That’s because hundreds of thousands of fast food and retail workers nationwide, fed up with minimum-wage jobs with no benefits and no advancement, plan to strike that day. And they’re drawing enthusiastic support from the nation’s unions. […]

Hole Under Door Lock
Wednesday, I approached my truck from the passenger side to place my computer bag in the front passenger seat.
As I reached to open the door I noticed there was a hole right
under my door handle.
My first thought was, “someone has shot my truck !”
I began to think about it and inspect it a little closer and
the “light” slowly began to come on.
I phoned my friend who owns a body shop and asked if he had any
vehicles with damage to the doors that looked like a bullet hole.
“Yes, I see it all the time. Thieves have a punch and place it
right under the door handle, knock a hole through, reach in and
unlock it, just as if they have a key. No alarms, broken glass,
I then placed a call to my insurance agent and explained it to
him. I was puzzled that they left my GPS and all other belongings.
Here is where it gets scary !
“Oh no, he said, they want the break-in to be so subtle that you
don’t even realize it. They look at your GPS to see where “home”
is. Or check your address from Insurance and Registration in your glove box. Now, they know what you drive, go to your home, and if your
vehicle isn’t there they assume you aren’t and break into your home.”
He said they will even leave a purse or wallet and only take one
or two credit cards. By the time you realize there has been a
theft, they may have already had a couple of days or more to
(I didn’t realize my situation for two full days!)
They even give you the courtesy of re-locking your doors for you.
Periodically, walk around your car, especially after you park
in a shopping center or other large parking area.
Report thefts immediately….your bank w/missing check numbers,
your credit card agencies, police, and insurance companies, etc.
This makes me want to run out and check my car now to see if I have holes in the door handle. Be careful. Thieves are finder better and more discreet ways to steal from you.
reblogging on here because shit people need to know about this wtf
That’s mad creepy if it’s true.
Safety Note: Always keep your wallet and phone on you and instead of buying a fancy GPS, buy a smart phone and use that as your GPS.

The Government of Bangladesh is scheduling the execution of a 91 year old man for crimes he did not commit in March of this year despite the pleading of the Turkish President to halt the execution.
This man could be your grandfather.
It’s our duties as Muslims, as whatever religion you may be, as Humans, to save an innocent man’s life.
A girl I know is his grandchild..
Bangladesh gov’t is one of the most f up, no offense
