These will never not be funny
"Fast and CURIOUS”
a lot of these are Netflix’s way of replacing movies they don’t have and I find that hilarious
I swear these knock-off movies are the universe’s way of confusing grandmothers when shopping for presents.
You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
Okay, but let’s talk for a second about how that one lady called turkey “big chicken”
You can’t even buy all food with food stamps. You just… you flat-out can’t buy “food that will be eaten in the store/any food sold for on-premises consumption” or any “hot foods” with food stamps—meaning you can’t buy anything hot, you can’t buy anything that gets blended together, you can’t buy anything “pre-prepared,” in most cases you can’t use your EBT card at restaurants. You literally CANNOT purchase a milkshake with food stamps, because it’s considered “sold for on-premises consumption” (which was ridiculous at the place I worked, because the customer had to mix their own milkshake themself with a little machine we provided them, and several people got upset—rightfully so, I think—that it wasn’t covered under food stamps, because they often only found out at the register after already mixing it, often as a treat for their kids). You literally can’t walk into a gas station, grab one of those hot dogs off their grills/out of the little heated food area, and buy it with food stamps, because it’s hot.
And when I say “can’t,” I don’t mean “if the cashier notices you trying and cares enough to stop you, they’ll refuse to do it for you.” I mean “it is actually impossible to do this.” I’m not even sure these people who disseminate false information about food stamps have paid any attention at all when buying things at the store, because what happens is: We scan in the customer’s items, into our computer. The computer has specific codes for the items and rules for what it will let you pay for things with. We scan the customer’s EBT card, and it tells us exactly how much of that price total can be paid for via EBT, and it will not include anything that isn’t food, and it will not include anything considered “pre-prepared” food. It does this automatically AND THERE IS NO OVERRIDE FOR IT. If our machines say that you can’t use the EBT card to pay for something, there is literally nothing we can do to change that, even if we WANTED to.
So no. You can’t buy iPads or cigarettes with food stamps. You can’t withdraw money from casinos or anywhere else with food stamps. You can’t buy dog food with food stamps; sometimes you can’t even buy people food with food stamps. I’m not even sure if you can buy “the big chicken legs” at Disney with food stamps; remember, you can’t buy “any food sold for on-premises consumption” OR any hot foods, and that’s both.
Literally the only thing these fearmongers listed that you can actually purchase with food stamps even if you are in goddamn cahoots with the evil liberal cashier or store manager is soda, and the judgement against people buying that with food stamps is classist fuckwittery at its finest.
So, as always, Fox News is actually flat-out lying, and hateful conservatives both don’t know what they’re talking about and don’t give a fuck about people going through shit that they will never have to go through themselves, and that they in fact don’t have even the tiniest clue about (not even via five seconds’ research; a list of things that can’t be purchased with food stamps is on the Food and Nutrition Services website) but still think they should spout off about to their TV audience anyway.

the things people will do to get me to write a stiles meta
I actually get Stiles very well and I tend to use him as the introduction character when I’m writing fanfic because of it.
On one hand he’s not complicated at all, he’s too smart for his own head and that manifests, along with his adhd, as weird ideas and questionable morality. He doesn’t have the morals people normally have because his intellect stymies them - that sounds really bad, but intellectually he knows a thing is wrong but there’s that part of him that wants to see why. He’s the sort of person that would go look for half a body because he wants to see the innards - but is also aware in his own head how it would look - he justifies it in his own head with things like “well, I didn’t kill her, and I just want to look” and “but it will help my dad”
Stiles has problems making relationships, he is a great actor and liar and so he has a lot of acquaintances but very few friends, he is what they want him to be as much as he is capable. He is Scott’s loyal friend, Derek’s lieutenant [the one who questions him] and wants to be Lydia’s shining prince but he can’t be. He challenges Peter because Peter enjoys it, and believed himself a friend of Boyd and was hurt by the rejection because he can’t judge relationships with any depth. It’s not selfishness, it’s more like an actor playing a role.
Lydia understands this better than Scott, she plays a role through all of season 1 and most of season 2 and 3 was her shucking that role to be herself. Stiles is different with other characters because he doesn’t realise he’s doing it
he’s to use a description from an essay on Henry Crawford “mercurial to the point of wishing his own character away”
Stiles changes himself to fill the void, he’s terrified of loss and so he’s rarely himself, he’s what other people want him to be, he flirts with Erica but knows it doesn’t mean anything, he pushes Lydia revealing he sees through her shell, he is Scott’s proxy to Allison, and so when we see Boyd rejecting him his hurt is for a split second honest then comical. He overplays his hand to hide his reaction.
It’s one of the reasons his relationship with Derek is so important, of all the characters in many ways Derek is the only one to see through the facade (just as Stiles does with Lydia) he pushes Stiles back and teases him and laughs with him, he lets him be himself and that must be very heady for a kid who wears so many masks.
We know he wears masks because of the few times we saw him without them - when his father found out about the beating for example, we see him craft the mask to appease his father, we see the lie as something vile in his mouth for once - the urge to tell the truth and the knowledge that Gerard might hurt his dad for doing it. We even see it a few times with Scott, we see him fumble before he answers, that’s a kid pulling on his mask, and it says so much a) about the writing and b) O’Brien that we do see it.
Most of 3b was those masks being torn from him - and ironically kitsune in human form were said to wear masks - so it’s like it tore away his masks to replace it with it’s own.
It will be interesting to see Stiles in s4, now that most of his masks are cracked and broken.
