I’ll be honest… my Christmas spirit goes about as far as the bottle of Honey Jack i intend on buying myself tomorrow… otherwise… much like previous years… MEH
gays. you will probably get mugged.
like manchester, but less gay. you will definitely get mugged.
probably quite good for canadians as exists in permafrost and has never left the 90s.
it's a lot cheaper than london
leeds but awful
gun death capital of the uk!
intense rivalry with nottingham, literally no one else in the country or world gives any fucks about this.
violently resist anyone who attempts to take you here
i'm not sure this is a real place
this is an illustration from the top of a christmas biscuit assortment
brighton & hove:
more gays. is only a pretend city. mild to moderate chance of mugging. contains some deeply annoying hippies. basically if san francisco was british.
there is literally nothing here.
exactly the same as portsmouth but smells of off milk
you have a 1 in 10 chance of ending up in a bbc recording. everyone sounds like a farmer or bob marley.
you have a 1 in 5 chance of ending up in a bbc recording, and a 1 in 3 chance of being glassed.
post apocalyptic wind tunnel full of drunk sailors pissing on depressed hookers. do not enter.
everyone here is from london now.
no one from london is actually from london and even breathing is expensive.
windy and full of equal amounts of homeless drug addicts and public schoolboys. the junkies are nicer.
same number of cunts as cambridge but easier to escape from due to all-night bus to london
a goth turned into a city. basically london but slightly more scottish.
it is impossible to tell whether people are angry or happy.
las vegas at the point when vegas starts crying uncontrollably
do not order "an irish car bomb" OR "a black and tan" here.
really, really don't.
count people's fingers. mutations walk here.
like plymouth, bombed flat in ww2. like plymouth, failed to take the hint. like plymouth: do not alight here.
you probably got off the train to Edinburgh a couple of hours too early.
Blake Fall-Conroy, “Minimum Wage Machine,” 2008-2010
This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York.
This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.
A few months ago, physicist Harold White stunned the aeronautics world when he announced that he and his team at NASA had begun work on the development of a faster-than-light warp drive. His proposed design, an ingenious re-imagining of an Alcubierre Drive, may eventually result in an engine that can transport a spacecraft to the nearest star in a matter of weeks — and all without violating Einstein’s law of relativity.
uh when did we start living in the future
wtf science you’re moving too fast for this relationship
