San Diego Comic-Con is in full swing and everyone wants in on the action. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a local Starbucks in Hilton Bayfront has made their eatery Harry Potter themed in honor of the weekend’s special devotion to all things magical. They even changed their doorway to look like the entrance to Platform 9 3/4, but this ride takes you to caffeine town instead of Hogwarts.
The place has paid remarkable attention to detail, with lots of special signs that all true Harry Potter fans will likely lose their minds over, much like reporter Sydney Bucksbaum who has been going wild on Twitter:
Though she’s hardly the only one: Lots of journalists who need a hot cup of java to get through the long lines are stopping by.
Henna tattoos may seem like a good idea while you’re on vacation, but as Twitter user James Colley from Cardiff, Wales, recently learned, it’s still important to do your research first. During a trip to Zakynthos Island, Greece, he decided to get a Mike Tyson henna tattoo that he’ll probably be regretting for a while…
While the Henna used by most professionals is a natural coloring that will fade in a few days, some less reputable tattooists simply use cheap black hair dye. Black hair dye contains paraphenylenediamine (PPD), a chemical that is banned from use on skin in the European Union because it can lead to severe burns on some people.
In 2015, Mary Bates of the United Kingdom, then 16, got a tattoo on her leg that led to similar scarring while in Turkey. She was told by doctors from St. Albans Hospital, Hertfordshire, that the scarring could stay with her for the rest of her life.
Dr. Christopher Flower, Director-General of the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association, warned those who seek Henna tattoos to go to reputable artists.
Most people on Twitter didn’t seem to have much sympathy, though.
It’s no secret that a lot of people hate their jobs. Not many grow up and dream of working retail, sales, or a desk job that confines them to the same 3 square feet for 40+ hours a week.
Why not just quit a job if it’s the bane of your existence? Aside from the obvious immediate lack of income, most of these jobs pay you just enough so that you have doubts about leaving without having something else lined up due to the financial hell storm awaiting you a week after your last paycheck.
This is where the whole ‘I’m trying to get fired’ movement took off. If you get fired as opposed to quitting your crappy job, you can go on unemployment and spend those 40+ hours a week looking for a job that won’t make you miserable. At least that’s the idea.
There’s a minority of people that simply don’t want to quit because they refuse to take responsibility for anything afterward. They’d prefer to have something or someone that they’d be able to point a finger at, even if it’s themselves while they were in that position that they were recently liberated from.
My opinion? Use your free time wisely. While it definitely does extend your work day, hopping onto the job boards on breaks at work and during any other free time you have throughout the day is infinitely less stressful than looking for a job because you have no income. After all, you may end up taking an even worse position simply to make ends meet.
Not everyone agrees with me, though. Specifically not these 19 individuals that would definitely prefer to be fired, and are actively trying to do so. Share your thoughts in the comments on whether or not you think their actions are justified.
Too many want to not be responsible for their own irresponsibility.
And put too much effort in trying to get fired.
More effort than they’ve ever put into anything else.
With so many people looking for jobs, it’s crazy to think that there are others looking to get rid of theirs.
Some feel like they’re powerless, and begin to spiral.
Is it all their fault though? Some companies can avoid this by being open to transfers.
Others will wait until someone else pulls the trigger for them before embarking on a risky career move they’d had in mind for ages.
It feels as though one too many are shameless in their efforts.
And many simply don’t have their priorities straight.
It almost sounds like they’re being held hostage.
A few see it as a way to get the company back for the numerous times they’ve been taken advantage of.
Others don’t realize just how good they’ve got it.
They blame their job for being unhappy, but refuse all options other than being fired and collecting unemployment.
The smart ones actively try to remedy the source of their unhappiness themselves.
But far too many just want to take the path of least resistance.
They feel married to the job, and want a divorce.
People assume that it’s about their lack of work ethic, but that isn’t always the case.
But it doesn’t help when so many people respond to the question like this.
Hopefully more people will keep in mind that there are always consequences to those bad decisions.
Perhaps the thing that makes dogs so goddamn pure is the fact that they’re so easy to please. Some love, walks, treats, and belly rubs are all they require for a completely blissful existence (is your heart hurting already?).
So, when you go above and beyond for your dog, their excitement goes THROUGH THE ROOF, and it’s a wonderful thing to witness. One such moment is circulating all over the Internet and one pup is getting her moment of viral fame.
Meet Jolene, a lovable (and newly Instafamous) Golden Retriever living in Modesto, California.
She likes dressing up.
And she loves her toys.
But nothing could prepare Jolene for the excitement she felt upon seeing a life-sized version of her favorite Gumby toy.
At first, Jolene isn’t sure what to make of the whole situation, but once she recognizes the smell of her human inside the Gumby suit, she absolutely NO CHILL. So, of course, she tackles Gumby to ground for lots of hugs and wrestles.
Jolene’s mom Emily Crisp originally shared the video to Facebook on Thursday night — and it’s been viewed nearly 5 million times since.
