I just had to shut 5 tabs for overnighting steamed blue crabs because, let’s be honest, either I can order a dozen and pay more for shipping than I would for the actual crab, or I could order a 1/2 bushel and that’s going to be stupid expensive.
Someday I want to take a food vacation where I go to all the crab/lobster festivals in the world. ALL OF THEM.
The other day, I borrowed my mom’s carpet cleaner and we got into a snit about it because she wanted me to clean off the cobwebs from it being stored in the garage before I stuck it in my car and I didn’t give a fuck so said just stick it in and she was basically like, if you want to use it, you have to clean it off because it’s mine and I make the rules, and I just rolled my eyes and let my brother wipe it off because whatever, mom, be a weird fucking control freak about it.
And now that it’s here, as I was cleaning the cat and dog hair off the bottom before I used it, I realized that it smells vaguely like pee (which, no surprise, because she got it to clean up animal pee!) and I don’t even want to use it anyway.
can someone verify? https://twitter.com/Lussenpop/status/500043697795661824 looks like state police marching alongside protesters and you know, not shooting them.
It doesn’t look like that tweet is still up, but according to this:
Early Thursday evening, St. Louis County police and state troopers were walking alongside demonstrators. Several marchers stopped to shake hands with officers. One woman hugged Capt. Ron Johnson of the Highway Patrol, who is overseeing security.
“There are First Amendment protections for people photographing and recording in public,” Mickey Osterreicher, an attorney with the National Press Photographers Association, told The Huffington Post. According to Osterreicher, as long as you don’t get in their way, it’s perfectly legal to take photos and videos of police officers everywhere in the United States.
This misconception is pervasive enough that the New York City Police Department circulated a memo last week reminding officers.
“Members of the public are legally allowed to record police interactions,” the memo states, according to the Daily News. “Intentional interference such as blocking or obstructing cameras or ordering the person to cease constitutes censorship and also violates the First Amendment.”— It’s Perfectly Legal To Film The Cops (via omgstopembarrassingyourself)
