THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN LAST WEEK AT MY LOCAL KMART. YES, THAT IS A SEALED VHS TAPE OF JIMMY NEUTRON THE MOVIE, IN 2014, AT KMART, SITTING NEXT TO DVDS AND BLU-RAYS, PRICED AT $8.99 
To give perspective, this film was released on VHS in 2002 and has been sitting unopened in a Kmart store for 12 years, longer than children now in middle school. 
Plain proof that no one does inventory or gives a shit at any Kmart anywhere. Someone could probably live in Kmart and have no one notice. 

In 2001, I did an experiment for school about the idea of living in a big-box store like this. I selected a busy 24hr Meijer, which is a midwest-only combination of Marts both K and Wal. I entered the store on a lovely friday afternoon, and didn’t leave the store until the following sunday evening. I read the entire magazine section, played all of the demos of the games in the electronics section, and beat minesweeper on my phone innumerable times. I ate at the pizza parlour they’d just installed, and slept on the display furniture. I wandered around the racks during the day, bored out of my skull. I considered buying frozen burritos and asking one of the employees if they had a breakroom where I could microwave them, but that felt like it wouldn’t truly answer the question if someone could live in a Meijer; I’d be using resources that weren’t public.
The only time I was ever asked if I needed any help was on sunday morning around 8am, and then it was only waking me up to ask me if I was drunk and had wandered in that night and fell asleep on their displays. I said, “no, I’m fine, I’m just trying this futon.” and was left alone.
The people that work there really don’t care.

u lived in a k-mart

This is the most magical thing I’ve ever had the privilege of reading

you deserve a book deal and a movie just for the phrase ‘marts both k and wal’ 

Magical

10 years ago today, filming began on a brand new series of Doctor Who, starring Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor and Billie Piper as Rose Tyler!

can I passively aggressively point out the way the shot is set up to make both of them equal including cancelling out the height difference and you really couldn’t tell who was meant to be the main character by looking at this photo? (Because of course they’re both the main character and of equal importance rose tyler Ninth doctor (via pygmy-of-triviality)

pludox asked: How many times could you go to college with 17,000?

17000dollars:

waftymingess:

17000dollars:

Depends on which school and where you live.  For some private colleges in the US, it wouldn’t pay for one semester (financial aid aside).

for $17000 you could attend a university for the rest of your life in norway and still have $17000

Sorry, but I need to vent/let everyone know what’s happening.

Shiraz Binyamin (AKA Akemi Yukimura or Aki Yuki Cosplay ) decided that she didn’t like me the minute she met me.

        About a year ago, Shiraz blamed her breakup on me and spread awful, disgusting rumors about me. (Having sex for video games, having group sex, ect.) I’m homeschooled, so a lot of people didn’t know anything about me other than those rumors. When I confronted Binyamin and asked her to stop, she blocked me.

       Months later, in December, I was confronted and sexually harassed by guys after she told them to, and I had to confront Shiraz Binyamin again. Shiraz fully admitted to spreading the horrendous rumors and using me as a scapegoat to her breakup.


Shiraz said she would set things right and get the truth out. Obviously, she didn’t.


       Now, about 2 weeks ago, I was at Gamestop in the mall with Matt, her ex, and we passed by Shiraz Binyamin. She immediately went in the opposite direction and left the store.
About an hour after that, and since then, I’ve been receiving tons of hate-mail on Tumblr. I don’t know how to get her to stop, but enough is enough. It’s been over a year since she’s been unfairly targeting me, ignoring it has obviously just made it worse. This isn’t even half of all the stuff I’ve been receiving this week. This is not okay.

Over the weekend I turned off anon, and Binyamin almost immediately started harrassing me on facebook with her separate cosplay profile.

This has gone WAY too far.

    I don’t think anyone deserves this treatment. Shiraz has admitted that I’ve done nothing wrong, and still continues to harass me, calling me a  plethora of racial slurs and sexually degrading names. She owns a gun, has threatened to kill people and is extremely racist. I REALLY want to get word out so that con-goers can know to avoid her. ESPECIALLY IN THE BALTIMORE/DC AREA. She’s done this before, and she’ll do it again. She could really hurt someone, and no one wants a tragedy to happen at a con. If you could kindly share my story, it would make me feel better after a year of this torture, and hopefully save other con-goers from it. PLEASE reblog this, and share it with any con-goers and cosplayers you know, especially those that attend any American cons.

    tldr; Avoid Shiraz Binyamin at all costs, she is relentless and unstable.

Holy crap, it’s still going on, but I’m so overwhelmed by the positivity and support I’m getting! Thank you everyone! I might not get her to stop anytime soon, but at least I feel better about starting cosplay and the situation in general.

Yeahhh as a person who used to date her I can vouch for pretty much everything here. So cray.

Signal boost.
This whole situation is extremely fucked up, and needs to stop.

To anyone wondering/asking about it, the links above are useless because she’s deleted her facebook accounts, but she still has her cosplay account and cospix account up.

One time when my music theory professor was a student in college, he had to accompany an extremely rude soprano for a recital. She treated him like dirt during rehearsals. Just before going on to perform, she made some really snide remark to him that ticked him off, so he transposed the piece up a half step. She cracked three times.

Always be nice to your accompanists, folks.

There is a special place in hell for people that are rude to their accompanists
