Clothing is prosthetic fur.

It’s true, but you don’t gotta say it.

No, seriously. This is important.

Like… think about the social model of disability for a second. You have people who are disabled and, say, need to use a wheelchair to get around but they can’t because everyone insists on building stairs everywhere because the vast majority of people are just fine navigating steps. Except for the people who can’t who are turned into second-class citizens.

Now, if everyone used wheelchairs everything would be ramps and using that chair would no longer be an actual disability because the world would be made in order to accommodate it.

Anyway, people talk a big talk about how this is totally different because wheelchairs are for addressing a physical limitation. Except, it’s not, really, because the human body can’t really tolerate anything cooler than the tropics at night without getting awfully uncomfortable without wearing clothes.

Without clothes human beings wouldn’t be able to inhabit 90% of the places we do but we can because we all wear our little fur prosthetics and live in a culture that accommodates and supports the use of those prosthetics (laundromats, closets, ect…) so we don’t even notice that we have these limitations until we forget to wear our clothes when we leave the house.

… and then we get in trouble real fast.

I’m a bit sad that Pepsi didn’t decide to open up a PMC branch after buying up part of the Soviet navy in the 90’s

wait WHAT

“The USSR offered to pay Pepsi with a fleet of diesel ships. Pepsi accepted the deal because they knew that it was the only way to continue to sell Pepsi in the USSR. The agreement included 17 submarines, a cruiser, a frigate and a destroyer, which were sold to a Swedish company for scrap recycling. Those 17 submarines made Pepsi become, for a few days, the 6th largest military power in the world by number of diesel submarines. The president of Pepsi, Donald Kendall, told the National Security Adviser of USA: “We are disarming the USSR faster than you”.“

So last night was my first welding class and the second i walked through the door the teacher said “hey you’re zoe right” and I started to panic because how does the teacher immediately know who I am fuck did I have this teacher before how come i don’t recognize him fuck fuck i’m a terrible person

turns out i’m just the youngest person in the class by about 30 years so the deduction wasn’t that hard

anyways, apparently people keep taking the welding class over and over again and the wait list is like 100 people long and so it was by some act of providence of pure dumb luck that I managed to get a spot. This also means I was the only person there who hadn’t welded before.

I’m stationed at a big center table where the teacher can keep an eye on me, and everyone else is in booths on the surrounding walls each making their own projects. And these are impressive looking projects. One guy is making a side table, a woman is making a giant metal rocking chair, and another guy was making a wind chime out of old compressed air canisters. 

The elderly gentlemen in the booth right behind me introduces himself to me as Jim and asks me if this is my first time and I say yeah and he smiles at me and tells me I’m gonna love it and how this class is so fun.

Immediately Jim becomes my new best friend. He comes over whenever I stop to take a break and asks how I’m doing and even helps me take the welding mask off when I couldn’t figure out how to do it myself. 

at one point i see Jim and another old guy talking to the teacher and i catch the old guy pointing at me. now being pointed at is usually never a good thing. the teacher has had me welding edges of scrap metal together so I can get a feel for the equipment. The teacher comes to check on me and I jokingly as him if those seasoned guys were making fun of me. 

Turns out I’m super good at welding and the old guy didn’t believe it was my first time welding ever and Jim was trying to convince him I was a newbie. :D

So for the entire 3 hour long class, like 15 middle aged and elderly people would periodically come by my table and check in with me, making sure I’m having fun and asking me questions about my life, and things like, do you know where the drinking fountain is, making sure I’m taking breaks, looking out for me and that kind of thing, all while being completely kind and supporting and complimenting me on my welding skills. 

and that’s how a community center welding class gave me 15 new grandparents. i love them all and this class is going to be amazing

this is so pure

I want this

My Wife’s Lovers, 1891, Carl Kahler

God I hope I am immortalised by my husband for having 40 cats

Fun facts:

  • It cost $5,000 in 1888 to have this painting made, which is more than $120,000 in today’s money.
  • I say 1888 because it took three years for Kahler to complete, reportedly because he spent most of the time studying and sketching each cat to get a feel for their personality.
  • It was painted for Kate Johnson, the title was her husband’s idea though, proving him the most patient and good-humored husband in the history of crazy cat ladies.
  • Speaking of cat ladies, the picture actually contains 42 cats. Or more specifically, Mrs. Johnson’s 42 most favorite cats. She had 350 in total.
  • It sold at auction via Sotheby’s a few days ago for over $800,000 dollars, vastly more than its $200,000-$300,000 estimate.
  • The buyer is a private collector in California.
  • Probably someone who really, really likes cats.
  • I mean, really likes cats.

I love that every cat in this picture has a name i dont know. In fact, a name i will never know. Each was loved dearly by someone who knew their names. And now they are immortalised in this painting. Its just so lovely
