Could you live on $8 or $9 dollars an hour? A computer game made by the Urban Ministries of Durham in North Carolina and an advertising firm called McKinney lets you play out life with a low-wage job as a single mom. The objective is to make it a month, juggling getting a job, rent, a place to live, food and coping with the costs of repairs, things for your child, insurance, etc.. Actually a very hard game to play and full of reminders of the difficulties of life on that kind of salary.
Seriously, if you haven’t played before, play it now. If you have played before, play it again. Especially important during this election season.
just playing this game alone made me really stressed and anxious
ALL THE HATER ANONS, PLAY THIS
This game is amazing. Play it, play it, play it! I shared this with a professor who then had her students play it. So real.
DID THEY JUST…
get that filth out of our box
I’ve been receiving a lot of criticism for being “unhealthy”… Now I know I may not look like your idea of “healthy” but I’m treating my body with a lot more love and respect than I ever have before.
Unhealthy were the days where I would binge and purge. Unhealthy were the lies I had to tell to the people I loved because I was so ashamed of my illness. Unhealthy were the days where I would feel guilty for eating ANYTHING. Unhealthy were the days where I would cry myself to sleep at night and pray that I somehow could escape this disgusting body. Unhealthy were the days where I allowed others to dictate how I felt about myself.
So no, I may not look like your idea of healthy. But I’m treating my body with a lot more love and respect than I ever have before. You can say whatever you want about me or my body but it won’t change the way I feel about myself.
no matter how sad I am this never fails to make me laugh
Can I get everyone to REBLOG this please? I can’t imagine this ever happening to kids, especially at a place MEANT for them! Teens or a group of teens are doing this in playgrounds, please watch your child(ren) at all times! REBLOG PLEASE!
People are sick
This is disturbing.
Saw this last night on Facebook and seriously cried about it. Fuck whoever is doing this to playgrounds. Like really fuck you so bad.
Are you fucking kidding me? Fuck people.
I want to murder whoever did this
jfc I just source checked and someone actually did this what the fuck
Dear person, you are the absolute fucking worst and it should not be possible to be as vile and horrendous as you are
i am laughing so hard omg i need more sleep
There should be a warning before something like this hits a dash so you’re not drinking or something when you first see it.
So by my house is an ice cream place called ChillN. It makes ice cream that’s frozen using LIQUID NITROGEN! So they get the base - ice cream or frozen yogurt - and then they add the flavor (say you order Nutella ice cream, they add actual Nutella to the base. Same for the other favors). Then, they put it into these mixing bowls and start mixing, and then in the middle of mixing they just shoot out a bunch of Nitrogen and I swear to God that shit looks like a fucking witch’s cauldron. After that, they add the “Mix-N’s,” and there you go. Fucking Nitrogen ice cream. The reason is that since it cools it super fast, the ice crystals don’t grow as big so that you get INCREDIBLY smooth ice cream. It’s literally the coolest shit ever.
