And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell.

Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

Friendly reminder from The Oatmeal.

Definitely needed to see this.

Fuck yes




Bloating. It happens to everyone. Me when I got up this morning VS me after 5 hours of yoga and two slices of deep dish pizza in Chicago. Did you know your muscles retain water after working out which actually makes you more bloated? Fun fact for ya. Same underwear, same pose. Just bloat. Obviously I didn’t gain like 20 pounds in a day. I’m also about to start my period. So yeah, there ya have it. Don’t freak because you had a bad eating day or you’re pmsing or your sodium intake was high and you look in the mirror and see something bigger. It’s not real or permanent. The wonders of the human body.

wait, it looks like your boobs and a little bit butt got bloated too

I’m wearing 2 sports bras in the first picture because I’m about to go to a yoga festival. second pic is a loose surgery bra - I also recently had a boob job so my boobs swell throughout the day. Also the wonders of different lighting.

Fitness Tip: When working out, don’t measure your success by how much weight you lose. Measure your success by whether or not you would survive being a member of the Fellowship.

also during the hunger games, battle royale, zombie apocalypse.

Any fictional setting really. If you can survive it, you’re looking good. If you don’t think you can, you got more work to do.
