you know what i just realized? “oy” is the funniest word in the entire world. i mean think about it, you never hear the word “oy” and not smile. impossible. funny, funny word. “poodle” is another funny word. in fact if you put “oy” and “poodle” together in the same sentence, you’d have a great new catch phrase. you know like, "oy with the poodles already!"
I used to hate traffic, but I realized it’s the only time I fully get to think and reflect. Sometimes, in silence. Sometimes, with music. All calls and emails are on hold. It’s just you—as you journey forward. Cushion time so you aren’t panicking, but I encourage you to enjoy traffic.
The Journey is as important as the destination.
have you ever stopped liking somebody that you liked a lot and suddenly notice that they are a shitty person and realize how blinded you were by how much you liked them
Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.
(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).
Fun fact: John Cleese was actually supposed to say some really long and complicated name, but he forgot it and just said, “Tim” and everyone just rolled with it.
