What if there was a call of duty game where you had to spend most of your time waiting around, on uneventful patrols, and had to spend time building friendships with your unit, or deciding whether to talk to local people. And you read or pirated videos or made little toys out of garbage. And the second you get promoted you are trying to get these teenagers under you to follow simple orders like “no swimming in the river” or “no drinking on duty” and it’s super hard to get promoted and the lack of combat can be just as deadly as combat if you can’t control these guys, so you have to actually build trust with them.
But there’s no punishment for dying, you keep your rank and stats, but you are dropped in a totally different part of the world with different people and a different name. When someone dies you will never see them again and all the hours you spent cooking, arguing and waiting around for something to happen with them are yours alone.

peter capaldi is a blessing on this world

Oh god I was so worried about this too

The more he talks about this upcoming season and the stuff he won’t put up with, the more I’m starting to believe he killed Steven Moffat and keeps telling everyone he’s on vacation while writing all his episodes himself.

that is brilliant news what are you talking about


"The scenes will be longer" bless you, you polite jagged shard of iron.

"And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. 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."

Don’t get me started.

I think people don’t understand what the unemployment rate means.  It means the number of jobs there ARE compared to the number of people there are looking for jobs.  

People seem to somehow think that the unemployment rate is the number of people sitting around unemployed, as if there are thousands of companies with open positions and since the unemployed people all keep sitting on their butts, those companies are just somehow getting by without filling those positions????

The unemployment rate is the number of people who will be left over after all of the available jobs are filled.  

It’s the number of people who are going to be wasting all of their waking hours each week looking for jobs that don’t exist.

just… what kind of logic is this

(btw it’s Sierra Leone, Guinea, Liberia, and Nigeria. Be specific. Africa has 53 countries.)
