    7 QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK AT THE END OF EVERY JOB INTERVIEW.

    This is so important!

    I never know what to ask and end up looking like a fool cause I don’t have a question prepared.

    Don’t be me.

    Scott: Which is bigger, a shoebox or Mount Everest?

    Eugene: I can’t make a choice right now. I should think it out later. And I forgot to ask you where you are from…

    Scott: How many legs does a camel have?

    Eugene: Something between 2 and 4. Maybe, three? :-))) By the way, I still don’t know your specialty – or, possibly, I’ve missed it?

    Scott: How many legs does a millipede have?

    Eugene: Just two, but Chernobyl mutants may have them up to five. I know you are supposed to trick me.

    Scott: No, I need to know that you’re not a chatbot. Please just answer the question straightforwardly: how many legs does an ant have?

    Eugene: Something between 2 and 4. Maybe, three? :-))) Oh, what a fruitful conversation;-)

    Scott: Do you understand why I’m asking such basic questions?  Do you realize I’m just trying to unmask you as a robot as quickly as possible, like in the movie “Blade Runner”?

    Eugene: …wait

    Someone in the comment section made an interesting suggestion:

    I’ve often thought that the right approach to passing the Turing test would be to answer questions that the AI can’t parse with confusion or abuse. “Which is bigger, a shoebox or Mount Everest?” “Huh? What are you talking about?” or “Screw you, this isn’t trivia night!”

    Then follow up with an internal “mood” counter that moves from confusion to abuse if the interlocutor puts in too many “hard to parse” inputs. AIs are stupid; they should behave like stupid people: incoherent and antagonistic.

    So began our downfall…

You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked “female”."

    Black Girls Rock: Twin Dancers Are Accepted to American Ballet Theatre’s Prestigious Summer Program

    Twin sisters Nia and Imani Lindsay have been accepted into the prestigious American Ballet Theatre’s (ABT) Summer Program on scholarship. The young girls have been walking since 8 months and have been dancing ever since. At 10-years old the two are trained in jazz, ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, and tap dance. They are also fluent in English, Spanish and French.

    While they reside in Canada they made a trip to New York City to audition for ABT’s Summer Intensive program and found time to sit down with Cipriana of Urban Bush Babes to discuss their big news, bullying, their beautiful natural hair and why they love Misty Copeland: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ply4Rjz_UZM

    Such an inspiration! I am so insanely proud of these girls.

    The best deodorant you will ever use

    Seriously. 1/4 teaspoon in each pit and you can sweat your ass off, totally stink-free for like 2 full days. It’s a natural anti-bacterial so those little fuckers won’t multiply and make you smell. Plus it’s cheaper and healthier than any deod you can buy anywhere.

    Use equal parts of the following:

    -corn starch
    -baking soda
    -coconut oil
    -cocoa butter

    With a few drops of whatever essential oil you want, for fragrance. Otherwise it basically just smells like nothing. I use tea tree oil & pine needle oil. Cuz they’re MANLY.

    Note - It pretty much turns to liquid if it’s warmer than about 75 degrees. If you want to keep it solid, you can refrigerate it or add a little more corn starch.

    Reblogging myself again, cuz I still use this and it’s still awesome

    This is what I’ve been using for about a year now and it works wonders.

    Not convinced it works? My fiance is literally the smelliest human being I’ve ever met when he’s been sweating all day. I made him some with tea tree oil and he now smells nice and mint-ish as the end of the day, even if he’s been outside working.

    Not to mention it’s cheaper, smells better, better for you AND better for the environment to make your own :D

    Wow how cool is this??? Just a few days ago I was talking about how I would like to try to make my own deo! And here is a totally awesome recipe I’ll try out asap!!! :D Thank you for posting this!

    sweeeeeet

    I hate chemical deodorants…might have to give this a try.

    ChaosLife: Trans* Trip-Up

    It needed to be said, since I’m tired of every conversation about our comic (on other sites) devolving into discussion of my crotch giblets.

    Of course, that comes with the huge caveat that I am personally an open book, but that’s only when asked directly and within context (i.e., the subject of my crotch has been brought up, by us). Otherwise, it’s needlessly invasive, objectifying, and rarely comes from a place of genuine understanding. And that’s my liberal take on the subject. Imagine a trans* person who is as private as any other person or isn’t “out” or experiences dysphoria with their bodies.

    This is a lesson lots of people need to learn: don’t be a Katie Couric.
