which fucking fedora wearing friendzoned nerd made this thing
yeah but notice that the seal’s intent is to eat those fish and the shark offers a mutually beneficial relationship for them
in which a dudebro unintentionally makes a really accurate analogy for the reason that they’re single forever
That’s a whale shark. They’re docile and in no way threatening to people or those fish depicted. Seals, by contrast, will attack people, possibly out of a frustrated sense of entitlement combined with poor socialization skills.
Well that backfired spectacularly.
I know I’ve reblogged this before, but reblogging again for updated commentary.
So as you know, I have been working for the past several months to get my love-child business “Love and Happiness” developed and off the ground. Love and Happiness is going to be a store for plus sized loungewear, lingerie, and comfort and spa items that promotes body positivity and celebrating those of us who are regularly ignored and excluded by mainstream media, traditional clothing stores, and in fashion.
My first steps to my business have already been taken and I have been majoring in school in marketing, business, and learning about the garment industry and fashion forecasting. The next step in my goal is to improve my technical sewing skills, which means learning how to construct clothing, how to sew difficult clothing such as bras (which are definitely tedious), and how to finish clothing in a way that is accurate and professional to give the people the most quality clothing I can in fresh young styles that keep up with current trends.
This is where YOU guys come in! I am a self taught designer who works minimum wage and pays for school myself, so all of my learning has come from books, Youtube, class havens such as Craftsy and CreativeBug, and old fashioned trial and error versus a traditional design school upbringing. At a class at Hancock Fabrics I was introduced to a long time used garment designing system known as “Tru-Fit”, also known as the “Lutterloh Pattern System” or “The Golden Rule”. The Lutterloh Pattern System is used to construct garments based on your exact measurements, and with their ruler and their sets of mini patterns you can create almost any garment you so desire. This not only allows me to learn how to piece together garments, but to use this system to grade up a commercial pattern that would otherwise be unattainable for plus sized people. Making the unattainable attainable and celebrating diversity in people is my driving passion and I can make it happen with the right tools available to me.
So what will your donation help me buy?
1. The updated Pattern Making Manual for Lutterloh which includes the original 300 base patterns.
2. The updated Pattern Making Manual for Lutterloh in XL and XXL which is meant for waist/bust circumferences of 60 inches and over.
3. The design rulers meant for both size sets.
4. The Advanced Guide to the Lutterloh Pattern Making System, which shows me how to more effectively use the patterns, as well as tips from designers who use the system
5. Design Books 1, 2, and 3 Separated by tops and bottoms and showing you how to take the available pattern pieces in the Lutterloh pattern making system to make your own designs.
6. The Sewing for Success book, which has designers trade secrets for how to sew faster and more efficiently, as well as tips for time and money saving options for fabric.
7. Mens Supplement by Lutterloh, which shows this same method but for mens clothing, which will be a great aide for people who prefer this aesthetic and enjoy menswear based designs and more relaxed loungewear. Also a great way to accommodate people who closely match this build.
To get all of these things including shipping and handling, I would have to raise 375 dollars for all of these books! This will be the first steps in my long journey but it is worth the investment in the long run to give you all the quality ready to wear products you deserve!
Every little bit helps! Even if you cant donate please signal boost! I need all of the resources I can get to make this dream a reality!
A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.
"ooh! a poor person in need of help! i better make sure they get arrested!" to me, that’s the issue that’s most troubling. Apart from that, the statue, and the idea behind it, is one of the parts of Christianity that even a grouchy atheist like me has to admire…
"Hey, how do you spell Massachusetts?"
"How should I know? Just grab a handful of Scrabble tiles and let fate decide."
this is like a beautiful unicorn of mispellings

Don’t get me wrong, VR is not bad for social. In fact, I think social could become one of the biggest applications of VR. Being able to sit in a virtual living room and see your friend’s avatar? Business meetings? Virtual cinemas where you feel like you’re actually watching the movie with your friend who is seven time zones away?
But I don’t want to work with social, I want to work with games.
Fortunately, the rise of Oculus coincided with competitors emerging. None of them are perfect, but competition is a very good thing. If this means there will be more competition, and VR keeps getting better, I am going to be a very happy boy. I definitely want to be a part of VR, but I will not work with Facebook. Their motives are too unclear and shifting, and they haven’t historically been a stable platform. There’s nothing about their history that makes me trust them, and that makes them seem creepy to me.
And I did not chip in ten grand to seed a first investment round to build value for a Facebook acquisition.
