they were not kidding when they said this economics textbook had been adapted for Canadian audiences, huh

Happy Birthday, Space Station! I watched 20 years ago when you first launched, helped build you, commanded you, and now marvel at the 1000s of experiments and discoveries. Onwards!

The Canadian Space Agency is proud to have many Veterans among its employees. On this Remembrance Day, join us in thanking them and all Canadian Veterans for their courage, service and sacrifices that have kept our nation strong, proud and free.
(The poppy pin shown above is either old-fashioned or foreign, I’m not sure which. This is what a modern-day Canadian poppy pin looks like. I’m not complaining about the CSA’s choice of picture, but I thought I should give you the correct mental image for what I’m about to tell you.)
The importance Canadians place on Remembrance Day and World War I is probably the biggest thing that surprised me about Canada. I had no idea until after I moved here.
My first November here, the very first time I ever saw someone wearing a poppy pin, I told her I liked her flower. She was rather surprised. I was nearly fourteen: surely I knew what a poppy pin was? But I didn’t, and the people there had to explain to me.
The first time someone referenced “In Flanders Fields” in front of me, I didn’t know what they were talking about. They were surprised: surely I’d had to memorise it in school a few grades back? But I hadn’t, and they had to explain to me.
I memorised it on my own not long after that; I wanted to be more a part of my adopted country. I visited two World War I museums to learn the things a Canadian ought to know. I bought a poppy pin from one of the countless donation boxes for the Royal Canadian Legion, and I try to wear it whenever leaving the house during the first eleven days of November, as Canadians do. This is my country too, now, and its customs are mine.

Those are grains of rice, and that’s a gyroscope. I’m amazed! @caltechedu

No I don’t, I have different spatulas that are best for different situations! I have the spatula that’s easy to clean and perfectly flat but slightly too long to be ergonomic and the spatula that’s really ergonomic but slightly bent.
I will fight other spatulas over the perfection of my offset spatula
my spatula is the best at flipping eggs and that’s the only important thing so it’s the best spatula
Nothing worth while is produced with spatulas.
1) I will fight you for the honor of my pasta not-bolognese, and 2) you’re just saying that because you can’t use a spatula to cook rocks.
#food mention #anything that makes me laugh this much deserves a reblog #high context jokes #(although I did mention the context of the rock thing in a previous post) #((I think I’m also in the ”different spatulas for different situations” camp)) #((mostly based on what material the spatula is made out of))

Okay so I just got off the phone with them. I talked to a trans girl named Aurora & she was super helpful! She gave me a few doctors to talk to & encouraged me to seek therapy instead of just rushing to get my pills. She literally found a trans friendly therapist in my town & I would definitely recommend giving them a call!
Check out their website for monetary help here! People can apply for ID assistance in the form of microgrants, which I previously had no idea about! Also trans folks can train to be a hotline operator, how awesome is that??
