This is a great movie.

What I want to say EVERY SINGLE TIME. 

Baristas are paid minimum wage to follow their company’s policies. That includes using whatever terms their company decides on for branding purposes. If you want a frappuccino instead of a frappe, a large instead of a venti, or whatever other thing you wanna call your drink, that’s fine. Your barista? They are paid shitty wages and work shitty hours and have to deal with hundreds of people telling them medium instead of grande, or large instead of venti (which refers to the fact that it is, actually, 20 oz of liquid, meaning you’re being a jackass for no reason).

Your barista isn’t stupid. They know what a fucking ‘large’ is and they know their store’s branding and slang sounds dumb to a lot of people. So how about, instead of being an asshole to a minimum wage worker, you consider why you keep buying $6 coffees instead of making that shit at home.

I’ll say that one more time.

Your barista is not stupid.

They know what a large is, what a medium is, and what a small is.

They also know they can be fired for not toeing the company line. And they can be fired for not standing there and taking the abuse you’re spewing at them.

They are being paid to not fight back. They are being paid to stand there all day and translate medium to grande and venti and large and regular and all while you bitch about the specific words you “have” to use. They are being paid to be welcoming and friendly and nice to you while you call them stupid.

Bitch, I know baristas with Ph.Ds, okay? Back the fuck off.

World’s Longest Wooden Sculpture

Chinese artist Zheng Chunhui recently unveiled this exceptionally large and intricately carved wooden sculpture that measures some 40 feet (12.286 meters) long, 10 feet (3.075 meters) high and almost 8 feet (2.401 meters) wide. Four years in the making, the tree carving is based on a famous painting called Along the River During the Qingming Festival, which is a historical holiday reserved to celebrate past ancestors that falls on the 104th day after the winter solstice. The Guinness World Records group arrived in November in Fuzhou, Fujian Province, where the piece is currently on display, to declare it  “the world’s longest wooden sculpture”.

Are You Smarter than an 8th Grader from 1912?

Pictured above is a test that was administered to 8th graders in Kentucky in 1912. The rare test was recently donated to the Bullitt County Historical Museum showing very curious and, of course, dated idiosyncrasies regarding changes between the 20th and 21st centuries. However, the oddest factor regarding this vintage test is it’s level of difficulty. Aside from the spelling and math, it is estimated that most high school graduates would not do well if this exam were given today. However, there is a reason for this.

Children are tested on what is taught to them. These questions were written for the curriculum that was taught in 1912. In modern times, the curriculum being taught is guided by each independent state’s board of education. Textbooks are written to specifically teach to the tests for their respective states. This is why our education system isn’t working well in the United States. Learning is interest-based. If what you are learning is not interesting, boredom will cause your mind to wander. Education has become increasing boring unless you have a great teacher who makes the curriculum interesting and relevant to you.

For students in rural communities in the early 20th century, this test was a crucial step. Those who did well enough on the exam — which tested pupils in their abilities of spelling, reading, arithmetic, grammar, geography, physiology, civil government and history — went on to get scholarships to high school and possibly college. And in 1912 up until the early 1970s, college in your home state was free. Yes, free.

The museum director said he’s gotten hundreds of calls — from interested parties, teachers, and history buffs alike. “With a lot of the questions, people might say, ‘Why would they need to be taught these specific questions?’”

But the museum’s director stated that even if he can’t answer all the questions correctly, he at least knows the history behind it. “Generally, most of the teachers, like me, just enjoy the challenge. We’ll get into a debate over what the answer is. Even beyond the specific answer, it just gets you talking about things.”

Unfortunately the records of what score was needed to pass the exam were not included with the test when it was re-discovered. However, if you would like to test your knowledge on this archaic test and find if you are as smart as an 8th grader from 1912, the answers are available here.

Okay guys please please PLEASE spread this, this is not one of the generic facebook hacks leading to a  youtube video or screamer, I saw this on my Facebook feed, shared by my friend who I KNOW WOULD NOT post this kind of bullshit, but I recognized it right away because I’ve had the misfortune of crossing it before, this is a legitimate video of an kidnapped woman being decapitated.
