5 Things I Learned As A Sex Slave in Modern America

#5. Sex Slavery Is a Thriving American Industry
I was 4 or 5 years old when it started.
If you’re expecting my “sold into child slavery” story to begin with guys in ski masks bursting into my bedroom and snatching me up in the night, the actual story is worse, in a way. One night, my stepdad just pulled me out of bed and said, “Come here, uncle needs to see you.” There were zero uncles downstairs. But there were several creepy, creepy men who passed me around from lap to lap and paid him for the privilege. If you’re asking yourself where my mother was, well, she was right there, watching.

Truly eye-opening article.

Fandom fashion friday…? Bixisarusher suggested “Toothless in an Elsa-ish way” soooo tada? Haha I’m pretty sure this isn’t what you meant, but I’m missing the first message you sent me (I don’t believe I ever got it actually) so if you wanna message it to me again I’ll try to get a redo done for you this weekend! :D

Venomous vs poisonous! If this one’s too small, you can read it on my site here. The animals are: northern copperhead, cane toad, tiger keelback snake, hooded pitohui, northern short-tailed shrew.
If you like my work, check out my Patreon, which is just $1.74 away from $200!

One of my favorite facts…there’s a difference!

Hi friend! Hope you don’t live in any of those ten or so states.
Why Oil Companies Caused 7 Earthquakes This Weekend

There were seven earthquakes in Oklahoma over the weekend. … If this seems odd, that’s because it totally is. From 1978 to 2008, Oklahoma averaged two magnitude 3.0 earthquakes per year. Again, just through the middle of last month or so, they’re already at 207. At least half the country will probably be buried under a pile of rubble before anyone really admits it, but the cause of this epidemic is hydraulic fracturing, which everyone just calls “fracking” now, because one-word phrases make for simpler Twitter protests.

Yikes!!!

July is National Ice Cream Month! 
Pictured is dessert as the author Jane Austen would have known it in 1810. Only the most privileged English families served “ices”—frozen desserts made of fruit, sugar and water or cream. Cooks often pressed these concoctions into fruit- or flower-shaped molds to make frosty, alluring sculptures (as seen above). “For Elegance and Ease and Luxury,” Austen wrote while staying at the manor house of her wealthier brother Edward, “I shall eat Ice & drink French wine”—two exclusive treats that she did without at her own modest home.
Today, variations on the ice cream idea can be found around the world. Italians created gelato, which is similar to ice cream but with less butterfat. A Japanese confection called mochi ice cream is a ball of pounded sticky rice with an ice cream filling. Sorbets, frozen desserts made with sweetened water, have many variations, from Hawaiian shave ice to Indian chuski.

Ice Cream every day…that’s what this means to me.
