Him: *to a captive audience in a passenger seat* I could never live here. Women in the Bay Area are so stuck up and pretentious. Every time I texted ortalked to them they kept saying I’ve offended them.

Me: *with my rainbow hair, tattoos, piercings, nose ring, guitar earrings, and my Bowie t-shirt.* You’ve offended me just saying that, you prick. Women don’t exist to provide you with entertainment. If we’ve offended you, it’s because we are educated, self-possessed, and don’t put up with your misogynistic bullshit. So maybe go home since we aren’t going to stroke your ego?











This is a video about how people used to walk in the middle ages, and how it changed around the 1500s when people started wearing a different kind of shoes.

the modern heel striker vs. the medieval ball strider

This is how I was taught to take steps in winterguard and colorguard. The people with the instruments did a rolling heel-step instead, because it would preserve the clarity of playing a musical note while moving.

It’s probably relevant that winterguard is usually performed barefoot or with soft footwear with no heel support.

Also, runners – especially long-distance runners – are usually taught not to heel-strike. Instead the ideal place to “hit the road” is neither the ball nor the heel – it’s the middle of the foot. 

Short distance runners usually do ball-strike because it’s faster, for many of the reasons described in that video. You’re leaning forwards more so you can use gravity to help propel you forward, and you’re using more muscles in your legs. Heel-striking usually happens because your steps are too large.

In ballroom dance, too, you wear shoes with very soft soles and glide around on the balls of your feet.

I’m looking at this from a writer PoV – it’s fascinating to know about, because it influences the way people move when fighting.

Not just sliding, gliding footwork thanks to soles with much lower grip than modern athletic footwear, but “poise” in both senses – “having poise” as in looking graceful, and “being poised” as in ready for quick movement.

For reference, a clearer view of what turnshoes look like.


Rather than an infodump lecture on how the characters are walking on the balls of their feet in soft shoes, show what effect it has on the way they move, and the way they sound – much quieter than in modern shoes. Maybe contrast that to the first time they have to wear something heavier, as disguise, uniform, formal dress, foreign costume etc.


Roland Warzecha also mentioned pattens, wooden outdoor “under-shoes”.


A couple of years ago I reblogged a post about sabots (clogs, wooden shoes in general and by extension, pattens) in which I wrote this:

It’s worth remembering that pedestrians going to and fro in a medieval
town (especially in wet or snowy weather) might have been surprisingly
noisy, and that people who went out of their way to be quiet, whether or
not they were dressed all in black, might have been regarded with

Something to bear in mind.

Everyone on this post is making deep mentions about things and their lives and I’m just sitting here thinking: “HA! SCREW YOU MOM! I DON’T WALK WEIRD I WALK NATURAL!”

I’m just thinking about the fact that he said balls so many times

Dewbeaters are some of my least favorite shoes to make and no one walked sensibly in those.


Trans people are afraid of losing their jobs when they report being called slurs and harassed by their coworkers but a teacher faces disciplinary action for mistreating a trans child repeatedly and lies about it in the news and ya’ll are now apparently afraid of losing your jobs for “"accidentally”“ misgendering people. Pathetic.








He designed this special shoes, shared between him and his paralyzed daughter just to make her feel the sensation of walking.


Oh my goodness

This is probably so good for her body, too! Imagine her muscles getting moved in ways they don’t normally and she is upright and hopefully not having any pressure spots! This is lovely in so many ways!

This is a wonderful invention, but the man in the picture is one of the testers. He is not the inventor. The inventor was an Israeli woman named Debby Elnatan who developed this with an Irish company for her son.

Keep that last comment in mind, people! We can’t keep erasing women’s accomplishments like this.

it’s these simple but brilliant inventions that really blow my mind


my school uniform was ESPECIALLY bullshit bc you know how Every Brand In The World puts tiny embroidered logos on their polos? Those weren’t allowed. But! My mom had a solution! She sent us to school wearing little crosses (which WERE allowed) pinned over the logo.

But the principal then told us we weren’t allowed to us the uniform-approved cross pins to cover up logos. We could only wear cross pins on shirts without logos, and logos weren’t allowed?? ? ?

So my family was like “okay, where the HELL are we going to find these shirts without logos?”

and the school was like “most families order from Lands’ End.”

I don’t think I should have to do the math to explain why this wasn’t going to work for, uh, anyone.

You can remove the logos, thought this might leave the fabric a bit warped or damaged.










I wasn’t expecting to see this on mainstream TV!

Holy shit you guys

This deserves to be read, so I’m copying the article into my reblog.

Kendall explains that she was born to be a
sex slave, as her parents intentionally had her for the trafficker she
calls her “owner.” Kendall says that her parents sold her at birth to an
elite pedophile ring that serviced some of the world’s power elite,
describing her first memories as being passed around groups of rich and
prominent men and women for them to “take turns” with her for sadistic
sexual pleasure.

Making her first public appearance
after escaping from the man she calls her “owner,” Kendall describes
being forced to participate in actions that shock the conscience. She
explains that she was forced to rape children as young as 5- years-old,
and even admits to having been forced to kill a baby by the human
trafficker she describes as her “owner.”Kendall says that she can tell the difference between kids born into
sexual slavery and ones that have been kidnapped, as the ones born into
it are more docile and less upset as it is the only reality they have
ever known. When Dr. Phil asks how old she thinks she was when she was
first raped, Kendall explains that it was “before I could talk – I was used to it by the time I was 2.

She says she doesn’t even know her actual age, as she has been a sex slave her entire life, being trafficked around the globe to be molested and raped by the societal elites – including high ranking law enforcement official, major sports franchise owners and even high level U.S. politicians.

She describes having birthed 3 children while in captivity, all of which have been taken from her by her owner/trafficker, and are believed by Kendall to now be child sex slaves themselves.

“I was allowed to get pregnant, because men paid for that,” Kendall said.

Kendall notes that the pedophiles she
came into contact with over the years were extremely wealthy – often
“pillars of the community” – with some even owning private islands or
large pieces of land.

“They would buy us just to hunt us,” she said.

She recalls one of her most fearful
memories was that of the pedophiles hosting a “hunting party” on one of
their large private plots of lands, making numerous children run and
hide in fear, as they were the “prey” to be hunted. The pedophiles would
then hunt the children as they ran and hid in fear – raping and
torturing them when they were captured.

The activities described by this woman
are so profoundly disturbing they can be almost hard to believe, but Dr.
Phil confirms that his team not only investigated Kendall’s case for
four months, but also consulted with law enforcement experts who
confirmed her story. Dr. Phil said he “100% believes” that she is
telling the truth.

In a damning indictment of the power-elite, Kendall described how the
pedophile politicians would adorn her in designer clothes, well groomed
hair and makeup to give the appearance of class and sophistication. She
explains that she and other children were often hung from cages
suspended from the ceiling, and that they were often drugged before
being transported in the darkness of night.

She claims that she was trafficked to pedophile politicians, and
taken to political parties attended by high-level politicians who used
her for their personal pleasure. The politicians always took great care
to hide what they were doing, according to Kendall, who confirmed
that there are many elite U.S. politicians that have been engaged in
raping children for many years — a reality that has consistently been
covered up and completely hidden from voters.

Perhaps the reason these crimes have been so steadfastly hidden from
public view, is that high-level law enforcement officials have also been
implicated as being part of the elite pedophile network.

This is just the latest case to emerge in what is now being called
#PedoGate. #PedoGate refers to an international pedophile ring composed
of politicians and other high profile societal elites.

After President Trump held a press conference last month, in which he
detailed his plans to go after the victims of the “human trafficking
epidemic,” former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney weighed in on the subject,
noting that going after child predators will lead to the downfall of
both Republicans and Democrats in the United States — as this problem
goes all the way to the top.

As the Free Thought Project has consistently pointed out, pedophilia among the global elite is rampant.

In December, we reported on the massive child sex ring that was exposed in Norway. That investigation quickly led to arrests
of “51 people, all men, (who) are so far involved in the case. 24 of
them come from Hordaland and Sogn og Fjordane. Twenty-six come from
other areas of Norway, from Southeast to Finnmark in the north. Among
the accused offenders, there is also one Swedish national. Two
politicians, one Labor politician from Oslo and a former national
Progress Party (FrP) politician from Eastern Norway are involved in the
case.” One is also a kindergarten teacher, and four of the 51 arrested
were perpetrators in the video evidence collected.

In February, the Free Thought Project reported on the fact that the police chief recently came forward and confirmed that the former Prime Minister of England, Sir Edward Heath, had raped dozens of children. The department also noted how those within the government helped cover up these crimes.

We previously reported on the high-profile elite pedophilia scandal that gripped the U.K.
– with its thousands of victims – being unceremoniously swept under the
rug, which is indicative of the scope and breadth of the actual
problem. In fact, the problem is so rampant in England that officials
issued an order last month to stop naming streets and landmarks after
local heroes and politicians because they could later be exposed as

In the case of the U.K. Inquiry, historical abuse by politically connected elites, celebrities, and politicians was brought to light
— with an official inquiry being started — only to have the inquiry
“crumble” after heavy pressure was exerted by highly placed power
brokers within the U.K. establishment.

This was almost the exact same scenario as what took place in the United States in what became known as the Franklin child sex ring coverup
— which involved high level Republicans during the George H.W. Bush
administration. Once the FBI took over the investigation from state
authorities, it turned into a witch hunt to persecute the child victims –
going so far as to charge them with perjury in a successful attempt to
scare the other 70+ victims to recant their testimony regarding the
child sex ring.

While the story received a small
measure of newspaper coverage, there was a complete blackout of the
scandal by the mass media, thus most Americans have never heard about
this scandal that reached all the way to the White House.

Domestically, there are relatively few high-level arrests, as anytime
‘the elite’ are mentioned alongside the term ‘pedophile,’ the
Praetorian guard, aka the corporate media, shout down all those who dare
pose any questions about those in power abusing the most vulnerable
among us.

For example former U.S. Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dennis Hastert, a known serial child rapist, was never charged for his numerous crimes against children, which the FBI knew about, and had evidence of, for over a decade.

According to FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds:

Since 1996 the FBI has had tons of information on Hastert
which was gathered in Chicago by the FBI’s Chicago Field Office. The
incriminating criminal evidence in those files range from bribery,
extortion, fraud, money laundering and embezzlement, to sexual crimes
against minors and participation in foreign-operated drug operations.

Since 1997 the FBI has had much hard evidence on Hastert gathered by
the FBI’s Washington Field Office. The documented deeds range from
espionage to foreign bribery.

But that’s not all. The FBI also has had hard data on Hastert’s
sexual violations outside the United States. The involved countries
include Vietnam, Thailand, Turkey and Morocco, among others. This also
included sexual favors as means of foreign bribery. Interestingly, the
CIA had been documenting those sexual activities for many years, and not
only on Hastert but on many others; elected and appointed.

So, when corporate media tells you #PizzaGate is fake news and that
investigating whether Denny Hastert’s good friend, John Podesta, is
involved in some way with pedophilia – given his close friendship with
Hastert, proclivity for strange art featuring nude children and strange
code words found in his leaked emails — it shouldn’t be shouted down as
“fake news,” but investigated instead.

It seems that American politicians and their political cronies are
virtually untouchable in the ivory towers of government. Since January
of 2017 over 1,500 pedophiles and human traffickers have been arrested.
However, the power-elite operating these child sexual slavery rings have
not been among them… yet.

Here are the YouTube videos embedded in the article:


This is so disgustingly disturbing but not at all surprising. Hang them all.

please please please share and spread this far and wide 

holy fuck oh my god

I started crying and literally had a panic attack and nearly vomitted. Those poor poor kids.

@feferi-hates-pedos @report-a-predator PLS SPREAD THIS ON ALL ANTI BLOGS!!!!


Humans have done things like this for centuries. It can’t be cured. It has to be cut off. It’s a gangrenous limb that will poison you

Mainstream Media Finally Exposes Elite Pedophile Rings in a Horrifying Episode of Dr. Phil


You know what? The top dysphoria may be real but as it stands im still the sexiest motherfucker you will ever see in your life and that’s a fact

“Work it”



Why is this on shitty car mods? This is revolutionary

becomes extremely enlightened when my airbag deploys and pushes all of these into the exact center of my brain

I was about to suggest this was a terrible idea. The last thing you should ever do to your car is fill it with sharp, heavy, lethal objects that can dislodge, stab, or fly through the air.










Let me tell you about my panda mini-washer

As an apartment dweller, this is a game changer. My current apartment doesn’t have a laundry facility and the closest Laundromat about a 30 min bus ride which is just not practical. The mini-washer is a life saver

The panda mini washer hooks up to the sink, is incredibly lightweight (about 28 pounds, so light even I can lift it) and easy to use. 

It has a surprisingly large capacity. The basket from the first picture represents about one and a half loads. The jeans took up a whole load while the rest filled the bin only half way. 

Here’s the inside. The left is the washer the right is the spin dryer. Yes, it even drys.

Basically you shove your cloths into the washer, fill it up with water and let it go. I use my shower head to fill it up so it goes faster, the sink hook up took about five minutes to fill the whole tub, with the shower head is is down to a minute an a half. I do it in three wash cycles, a five minute rinse with baking soda, a five minute wash with soap and a three minute rinse with water. You have to drain and refill between each cycle so it’s a little more labor intensive than a traditional washer. 

That’s the spin dryer. It’s about half the capacity of the washer so one wash takes about two loads to dry. The spinner is much more effective than I was expecting. A three minute spin gets my cloths about 90% dry. I hang them up to air dry for that last 10%. 

The machine cost me about 150$. When you factor in two dollars for the bus, five for the machines (per week), the mini-washer pays for its self after only about six months worth of laundry. 

I’m not great at expressing emotion, but I’m hoping you can tell how excited I am.  Let me just say that the panda mini-washer is great and I highly recommend it to anyone currently using a Laundromat.  

Read this and immediately bought it on Amazon for $180. I spend $15 a week to have my laundry done so this pays for itself in 3 months for me. THANK YOU JESUS.


@ all my nyc pendejas

Oh by the way, they have table top dishwashers that are pretty much the same thing:

This is one of the biggest technological breakthroughs for the everyday homeowner in the current decade: the realization that refrigerators aren’t the only things that can be miniaturized for better affordability and minimal space requirements.

Can you IMAGINE how this is going to change the lives of college students and apartment-dwellers? Or anyone with a lower income who can’t afford a place with “luxury” appliances like dishwashers and laundry machines?

There’s an even cheaper option called the Wonder Wash where you tumble the thing yourself and you’ll have to line-dry the clothes, but it apparently works very well.

As an apartment dweller, I want to spread this.

We recently got the dish washer, and it’s great. Unfortunately our cupboards are about ½ an inch too close to the counter to fit the dishwasher on the counter next to the sink like we hoped, but I bet it would be fine in most homes.

Cut a piece of plywood The is the precise width of the washer and put that beneath it. It will be heavy enough to keep the machine in place, and stable with a slight overhang. Provided you have the upper clearance to do this
