wow I didn’t know fuckin chocolate eggs were gendered

OKAY LET ME TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT THE FUCKING PINK EGGS.
I work at a concession stand in an ice rink. We sell a bunch of chocolate bars and snacks and shit including Kinder Surprise eggs.
So one day this woman comes up to the counter with her two little kids, a girl who’s probably about 6 or 7 and a little boy, maybe 3 or 4. The mom asks what they want, the little girl points at the Kinder eggs and says “One of those!”. I asked if she wanted the white or the pink egg. She said pink. The little boy pointed to the Kinder eggs and says “One of those!”. I asked if he wanted the white or the pink egg. He said pink. HOLY SHIT IT WAS LIKE I OPENED THE GATES OF HELL. The mom absolutely FLIPPED and was like “YOU ARE NOT GETTING THE PINK EGG IT’S ONLY FOR GIRLS. YOU CAN GET THE WHITE ONE OR NOTHING AT ALL”. The little boy looked at his mom and said “But I want the same as ______ (whatever the sister’s name was)”. The mom completely ignored him and turned to me and gave me a death glare. “He can have the white egg.”
I had to give a little boy a white egg when he wanted the pink so that he could be the same as his big sister and he started crying. The mom just reiterated that the pink egg was for girls and told him that boys don’t cry.
And this is why we shouldn’t gender fucking chocolate eggs.

This is actually a relatively new thing, originally Kinder Eggs were all white like the ones on the left. I don’t know at what point they decided to make ‘girl’s’ Kinder Eggs, but I do not like it.

Holy shit do not even get me started on how moms constantly police their sons’ masculinity. I’ve seen mothers do it WAY more often than fathers.
I used to work at a bakery that specialized in creating custom cakes. We had this feature where we could print out any image off the computer and put it on a cake (with rice paper). One day this lady comes in and asks for an image we had of the baby Sesame Street characters. They’re all together with cake and confetti, and she asks, “Oh, well since it’s a boy, can you please change all of the little pink confettis into blue confetti? I mean, he’s a boy, you know.”
Confetti.
The fucking confetti.
It barely covered 5% of the image.
Another instance was when a lady asked me for an image of four superheroes to put on her son’s cake because her son was turning four. She admitted to not knowing any superheroes, so I offered the most obvious choice—The Fantastic Four. I pulled up a picture of them and she goes, “Oh no no, we can’t have that. Let’s do another one.” Confused, I pulled up a Justice League one with Batman, Superman, The Flash, and Wonder Woman. Again, she said no. I asked her if she needed anything specific (she didn’t know superheroes, why was she so picky?), and she just said, “Oh, it’s just that he’s a boy, you know? We can’t have a girl superhero on his cake.”
I nearly lost my shit. I did temporarily lose my customer service face and ask why, women have been superheroes all the time, Wonder Woman is iconic, etc etc and she was like, “It’s just that my son has been playing with Barbie dolls lately and I really don’t want him to end up… well, you know.”
This shit has got to stop. When you teach boys that certain things are only for girls, you’re limiting them and you’re teaching them that girls or “girly things” are bad. If you want gender equality as an adult, you better make DAMN sure that you’re teaching the same thing to your kids.

So this woman did not want her son to turn out ‘you know’ and her plan for that was to get him a cake with spandex-clad manly men AND ONLY MEN on it? I don’t think she thought that one through too well…

Here is a petition for Kinder to stop making gendered products!

what I bolded. omg.

When I took my 6-month old child to a baby swimming course, the babies were given many bright plastic balls that floated on the water. All nice bright colours. The babies instinctively went for the nearest balls, regardless of colour.
You would not believe how many mothers actually berated their 6-month old male babies for trying to take the *pink* balls. “Not honey, those are not for boys”.
WTF?! These were BABIES. They should have been praising them for being able to grab the toys at all!

Something I realised, after having to help many international tourists count out their change, is that American coins don’t actually have the number value on them??? Like no wonder all these poor tourists are so confused

it just fucking says one “dime”

what the fuck is a dime

how much is it worth

whose idea was this

oh my god i never even realized that what the hell we all just sort of know what they’re worth through some sixth sense bullshit

I didn’t realize this until I went to England the first time.  They have way more coins than we do so it was kind of hard but at least they had the value on them, so I picked it up.  A Brit friend said she never really got the hang of US coinage (even though we only have 4) because they don’t have the values on them, which had never occurred to me.

So for the record:

Penny = $0.01 (1 cent)

Nickel: = $0.05 (5 cents)

Dime = $0.10 (10 cents)

Quarter = $0.25 (25 cents).  That’s the only one that makes any intuitive sense because it’s a quarter of a dollar.

We do have $0.50 coins and $1 coins but they are pretty rare.

Okay, so in Science class yesterday we were talking about sleep cycles and melatonin and my science teacher said, “if you’re trying to sleep, avoid one colour. Blue. Your melatonin levels decrease when looking at the colour blue because it’s the colour of the sky.” GUYS, I KNOW WHY NONE OF US SLEEP. TUMBLR IS BLUE.

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts

like if u have red cheeks or a really red spot, use green concealer over the red areas to cancel them out yo

Reading a good teen wolf fic, with obviously “google translate” Spanish.
Is bad that it makes me cringe a bit ?

Don’t use google translate for ur fics please, like, never

I’m sure there’s people open to help if you ask ( I would always help with Spanish or Portuguese) or just write the phrase in English and say something like “he spoke it in perfect Spanish”

Because although the mistakes weren’t that bad (more syntax, or mixed verbs ) it’s just a pet peeve for a lot of people who has to see their native language written in a bad way

Thanks

Yes. I’m reading “At least there’s the football”, a mystrade fic with some things in Spanish and some scenes in Spain and I’m constantly thinking ‘in Spain there is not best man at weddings’, ‘oysters are not typical from Barcelona’, ‘in Spain we don’t say m’hija'…

If someone needs advice about Spanish habits, and Spanish from Spain, I’m here.

AGRA crack theory

sradanvers:

deducingbbcsherlock:

That last Ask got me thinking about Mary’s files. An idea popped into my head and I’m just going to run with it. (Warning: this is a total crack theory. Feel free to rip it to shreds.)

image

Sherlock fixates on the drive the second Mary sets it down. This is a case, and he needs data. He listens to the way Mary subtly manipulates John. If you love me, don’t read it in front of me. John will comply – he’s a romantic. Sherlock knows this just as well as Mary.

That won’t stop Sherlock from reading the files. But hold on – Mary knows that. Mary knows when Sherlock’s fibbing, she can read him quite well. So, Sherlock realizes, whatever is on this drive, Mary knows Sherlock will see it eventually. That means it contains information she wants Sherlock to see. (And Sherlock undoubtedly knew right off the bat that there was no way someone as clever as Mary would simply carry around a hard drive containing the information needed to “put her away for the rest of her life.”)

Mary setting that drive down was a carefully calculated strategic move. Sherlock knows a game of chess when he sees it. One move, and one survivor.

And this, this, is Mary’s move.

I should have been more daring [with The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes] but, unfortunately, the son of Conan Doyle was there.

I wanted to make Holmes a homosexual. That’s why he is on dope.

Look, we have been freed now from the Breen Office or the Johnston Office or that stupid thing.

In many respects, it’s terrifying because now any idiot and any pornographer can do anything.

But for the ones who are a little bit discriminating, who do it delicately, a grand new thing has opened.

But that was after [I made] Private Life.

The saddest thing about the film is that it was a waste of a year and a half of my life.

When you get to be my age, you say, 'Shit, if I just had the time back that I wasted on pictures that were failures.'

But I’m not ashamed of it. There are many pictures I wish I could scratch out, but this one I’m not ashamed of.

Billy Wilder, on his original intent for The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes.



Reference Notes:

  • Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat have stated TPLoSH was used as their main inspiration and “template” for Sherlock, and Gatiss considers Wilder to be one of “the best screenwriters in the world”. [x]
  • On Holmes’ drug use in TPLoSH, Wilder has said: "I should have been more daring. I have this theory. I wanted Holmes homosexual and not admitting it to anyone, including maybe even himself. The burden of keeping it a secret was the reason he took dope."  [x]
  • "The Breen Office" is in reference to Joseph Breen, one of the primary film censors who applied the Hays Code of “moral censorship guidelines” to Hollywood productions from the 1930s onwards: [x]
  • "The Johnston Office" is in reference to Eric Johnston, the president of the MPAA who took part in creating the Hollywood Blacklist, which denied employment based on alleged membership in or sympathy with the American Communist Party, involvement in progressive political causes, or refusal to assist in government investigations from the 1940s onwards.
