you dangerous, dangerous people
That’s what I never understand about the purge movies, if all laws were suspended I still don’t want to commit fucking MURDER.
Horror is derived from equal parts ethical responsibility and the lack thereof.
Okay, decided to whip this up because of the following reasons:
1) I get this question a lot. Apparently there are a ton of folks out there that are really new to paypal and while I don’t mind helping, having a good reference page for folks that shows you exactly what to do will cut down the time I spend explaining it.
2) I’ve had two flags on my account in the past year because no one check the “No Shipping Required” box. So Paypal comes to me and says “Hey you didn’t ship our their thing!!!” but I do digital commissions…there’s nothing to ship! So this step is really important!
3) I often have to give out my Paypal email over and over for this and I figured having it in one spot might help!
There will be a new page on my blog with these images and I’ll try to keep them up to date if Paypal happens to change their format! Hope this helps you guys!
(Interested in commissioning me? Check out this page here!)
Putting this on my art blog ‘fo my folks.
NEVER MENTION ANTHRO CHARACTERS, FURAFFINITY/DEVIANTART/INKBUNNY/ETC., ANYTHING OF AN ADULT NATURE OR ANYTHING EVEN MILDLY QUESTIONABLE (EVEN AVOID THINGS LIKE TRANSGENDER). PAYPAL IS A SHITTY SERVICE AND WILL LOCK YOUR ACCOUNT DOWN WITH ALL THE MONEY INSIDE IF THIS HAPPENS.
Oh my god, seriously???
This may be a good time to mention Dwolla, a paypal like service that doesn’t do such things and charges a flat $0.25 rate for charges above 10 dollars. I have no association with the Dwolla service with the exception that I am an active user and a web developer who utilizes their API. It’s a good alternative, one many a tumblr user should be aware of. In addition, Simple.com is a great way to manage your money in an entirely internet based way. The major benefit of Simple is your bank account can have multiple “subaccounts” for goals that take away from the total amount visually shown, leaving you with a ‘safe-to-spend’ amount you need to keep above zero to keep saving. Simple’s additional plus is their effort to minimize fees in every way possible. Mint.com is an aggregator for your finances, it spans multiple accounts/banks to give you a dashboard for everything. I utilize these services, including paypal, for many things, I hope that this information is useful.

I don’t know if these are “ramen hacks” so much as they’re “how you cook ramen.”
Am I the only one…. confused by this?
Not confused, just shit we been doing for years. I never made ramen like the package said to, I learned from Moms.
So here’s the thing about Maruchan and Top Ramen. Yes there is better ramen available. You buys those because you’re desperately poor. When I’m completely completely broke I can buy a week’s worth of ramen for $1. If that’s where I’m at, I can’t afford mushrooms, bok choy or green onions. When I *can* afford those things the last thing I want to eat them with is more goddamn ramen. Especially cause after a week or more of eating at least one ramen based meal a day you start to feel really unwell.
YOU WANNA KNOW SOME GOOD SHIT

This needs signal boosting right the fuck NOW
ICYMI: This hashtag is in response to the common statement that “Not All Men ________ (fill-in-the-blank) when conversations about misogyny happen.
There is a tag circulating twitter right now for men? Seriously? As if tagging our bullshit with ‘but wait, #notallmen do terrible things” is going to make any of my gender seem more reasonable. Here’s the thing, every last person in that tag is refusing to take responsibility for what our gender is doing as a whole. It doesn’t matter if you are a tear in the river you are still part of the river!
Infuriating. If you want to do something positive for a change, try starting with proper education for both genders instead of passing bullshit feel-better phrases around. Teach yourself and your kids not to be as shitty as we all have been, to accept our failures as a society and make changes to respect one another.
Remember that our gender has done terrible, terrible things happen for longer than you have been alive, and despite living for less than a hundred years it is still your responsibility to bear the burden of what we have done as a whole, to rectify these grievances in favor of a better world where people aren’t terrified of you because of your gender.
Just watch it.
No, seriously. Watch the video.
but guys…can you imagine what would happen if someone hacked the highways?
SIGNAL BOOST THIS SHIT
Only 41% ; _ ; Come on guys, we can do better than this.
Okay but this video is not only informative but also really funny. I suggest giving it a watch. c:
After spending years developing a simple machine to make inexpensive sanitary pads, Arunachalam Muruganantham has become the unlikely leader of a menstrual health revolution in rural India. Over sixteen years, Muruganantham’s machine has spread to 1,300 villages in 23 states and since most of his clients are NGOs and women’s self-help groups who produce and sell the pads directly in a “by the women, for the women, and to the women” model, the average machine also provides employment for ten women.
Muruganantham’s interest in menstrual health began in 1998 when, as a young, newly married man, he saw his wife, Shanthi, hiding the rags she used as menstrual cloths. Like most men in his village, he had no idea about the reality of menstruation and was horrified that cloths that “I would not even use… to clean my scooter” were his wife’s solution to menstrual sanitation. When he asked why she didn’t buy sanitary pads, she told him that the expense would prevent her from buying staples like milk for the family.
Muruganantham, who left school at age 14 to start working, decided to try making his own sanitary pads for less but the testing of his first prototype ran into a snag almost immediately: Muruganantham had no idea that periods were monthly. “I can’t wait a month for each feedback, it’ll take two decades!” he said, and sought volunteers among the women in his community. He discovered that less than 10% of the women in his area used sanitary pads, instead using rags, sawdust, leaves, or ash. Even if they did use cloths, they were too embarrassed to dry them in the sun, meaning that they never got disinfected — contributing to the approximately 70% of all reproductive diseases in India that are caused by poor menstrual hygiene.
Finding volunteers was nearly impossible: women were embarrassed, or afraid of myths about sanitary pads that say that women who use them will go blind or never marry. Muruganantham came up with an ingenious solution: “I became the man who wore a sanitary pad,” he says. He made an artificial uterus, filled it with goat’s blood, and wore it throughout the day. But his determination had severe consequences: his village concluded he was a pervert with a sexual disease, his mother left his household in shame and his wife left him. As he remarks in the documentary “Menstrual Man” about his experience, “So you see God’s sense of humour. I’d started the research for my wife and after 18 months she left me!”
After years of research, Muruganantham perfected his machine and now works with NGOs and women’s self-help groups to distribute it. Women can use it to make sanitary napkins for themselves, but he encourages them to make pads to sell as well to provide employment for women in poor communities. And, since 23% of girls drop out of school once they start menstruating, he also works with schools, teaching girls to make their own pads: “Why wait till they are women? Why not empower girls?”
As communities accepted his machine, opinions of his “crazy” behavior changed. Five and a half years after she left, Shanthi contacted him, and they are now living together again. She says it was hard living with the ostracization that came from his project, but now, she helps spread the word about sanitary napkins to other women. “Initially I used to be very shy when talking to people about it, but after all this time, people have started to open up. Now they come and talk to me, they ask questions and they also get sanitary napkins to try them.”
In 2009, Muruganantham was honored with a national Innovation Award in 2009 by then President of India, Pratibha Patil, beating out nearly 1,000 other entries. Now, he’s looking at expanding to other countries and believes that 106 countries could benefit from his invention.
Muruganantham is proud to have made such a difference: “from childhood I know no human being died because of poverty — everything happens because of ignorance… I have accumulated no money but I accumulate a lot of happiness.” His proudest moment? A year after he installed one of the machines in a village so poor that, for generations, no one had earned enough for their children to attend school. Then he received a call from one of the women selling sanitary pads who told him that, thanks to the income, her daughter was now able to go to school.
