SCREEN JUNKIES DID AN HONEST TRAILER FOR THE WINTER SOLDIER BUT IT WAS SO GOOD THEY COULDN’T EVEN TAKE THE PISS OUT OF IT SO THEY JUST TALKED ABOUT WHAT A GOOD FILM IT WAS
Remember that movie in which Jack Black was a teacher and building a rock band and when a little black chubby girl asked to be a singer he only said “sure! let me hear you” and the moment she started using her beautiful voice his lit up like all of his dreams came true, PLUS the same little girl was scared that people would make fun of her because she was fat and he started listing awesome singers with some weight on and included himself and told her that people wouldn’t laugh because she is awesome at what she does and that is all that matters PLUS that it’s ok to enjoy food?
Also, when a little boy asked to be the band’s stylist he just said “sure, go ahead fancy pants” like, there wasn’t a single second of questioning it, he went into “ok, that will be your position then” right away
That fucking movie is an hour and a half of Jack Black teaching kids to love themselves disregarding all of the stereotypes
Not to mention also teaching them valuable entrepreneurial skills.
BREAKING: Seattle becomes the first city to raise its minimum wage to $15/hour. SHARE if Congress should take Seattle’s lead!
the current minimum wage (at least in NY) is $8.00 and less than a year ago it was $7.25, so yes.
Nope nope and nope. Make better decisions and life and you won’t be working a minimum wage job.
^ That’s literally the dumbest fucking thing I’ve ever read in my life. Are you the kind of person that goes up to homeless people and tells them to get a job? Good fuuuuuuuuuuuucking lord. If everyone was able to get a “better” job, there would be absolutely no-one populating the mass expanse of the workforce. Are you unable to see how this suggestion is completely and utterly illogical? And extremely rude?
Thank god people in Seattle have good heads on their shoulders so single mothers working 3 minimum wage jobs to feed their children can finally be treated like actual live human beings with needs and not capitalistic automatons.
"Just get a better job" is the most white bread privilege shit I’ve ever heard.
I don’t even think it’s white privilege. I think it’s just near-bottomless dumbfuckery.
"Get a better job," they said.
Suddenly, every custodian everywhere quits their job and gets a better one. Now, upon entering public restrooms, everyone is handed a spray bottle and toilet brush, because now they have to scrub their own shit out of that public porcelain throne. Women’s restrooms come complete with plastic bags, because they have to bring their soiled period products home with them and dispose of them at home, because there is no more public waste removal.
"Get a better job," they said.
All fast food employees quit and find a “better job”. No more fast food places! There also aren’t any restaurants. Better learn to cook your own shitty garbage burgers. You have only yourself to yell at if you forget the cheese.
"Get a better job," they said.
Retail stores no longer have any employees. All shopping must be done online, but you have to drive out and pick up the supplies yourself because the Fedex people quit and got better jobs, too.
"Just get a better job," they said!
You now have to grow and make every single thing you ever consume for the rest of your life, because no one wants to do it for you at $7 an hour.
^ THE LAST COMMENT THOUGH FUCKIN AMEN
So….I totally never thought about this. I’m sure very few of you have. I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit disturbed…
Wow. Food for thought. I’m sure there’s an answer though.
Their names were translated/Anglicized after going from Greek to English.
The names of the Apostles are of Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew origins. The Hebrew, Aramaic and “Greek” named Apostles were:
Shim’on = Simon (Hebrew origin).
Y’hochanan = John (Hebrew origin).
Mattithyahu = Matthew (Hebrew origin).
Ya’aqov = James (Hebrew origin meaning Jacob).
Bar-Tôlmay = Bartholomew (Aramaic, which is related to Hebrew).
Judah = Jude / Saint Jude (not to be confused with Judas Iscariot, Hebrew origin).
Yehuda = Judas Iscariot (Hebrew origin, Betrayed Yeshua/Yehosua the Messiah).
Cephas / Kephas = Peter (Hebrew / Aramaic origin meaning “Rock”).
Tau’ma = Thomas (Aramaic origin).
Andrew = Andrew (Greek origin. Is the brother of Cephas / Kephas).
Phillip = Phillip (Greek origin).
You will note that there are only 11 names, that is because there were 2 Apostles named Ya’aqov (James), which brings the total to 12 apostles.

Another fun little tidbid: look at the name we get Jesus from: Yeshua. Moving from Hebrew to Latin and Greek, the Y became an I, then a J when the “ya” sound shifted to “ja”. Look familiar? That’s right; Jesus’s proper Latinized name isn’t even Jesus, it’s Joshua :)
So why did the back change? Greek and Latin don’t have male names that end in vowel sounds; those are typically reserved for women particularly among the Romans where women were long named after their fathers (i.e. Julia is the feminine version of Julius, so it would be read by a Roman literally as “Julius’s daughter” or “Julius’s girl”. By-and-Large Not a fun time being a lady in Republic and Imperial Roman society). As such, a vowel-ending hardly seemed appropriate for their new man-god and they gave it a male ending, -us. Yeshua becomes Yeshuas, and because end-of-name dipthongs like that are also uncommon in Latin and Greek(this is one reason why ancient scholars assumed the Perseus stories and cult originally came from “The East” btw; the ancient Greeks blamed anything odd about the practices and stories of the common folk as coming from “The East”[mostly because they believed everyone to their North and West to be uncivilized savages with nothing to contribute to Civilization, even though most of the precious metals they used likely came from their North and West] so never let anyone tell you Orientalism is a new thing :p In modern times, classics scholars typically think it means Perseus predates the Indo-European Greek culture), it got taken out too, making Yeshus Iesus, then Jesus when J was invented :)

Not gonna lie, studying international religions to learn how humans have created and maintained their belief systems is FASCINATING.
