The effect of Eowyn’s effeminate essence was the execution of evil.

Affect is a verb.

Effect is a noun.

Maybe I’ll finally be able to remember which one is which now.

something i have been trying to understand: the fact that raising the minimum wage would ruin the economy. if you could link me to an article that you know is good/previous post that would be appreciated.

redbloodedamerica:

Raising the minimum wage wouldn’t necessarily “ruin” the economy.  However, it will prolong unemployment, stymie economic growth and stagnate economic mobility which is the very thing it was set out to overcome in the first place.  It’s a political band-aid that makes it look like a “compassionate” politician is doing something to attack poverty proactively, but has very little economic impact in reality.  The government can’t solve the war on poverty.  They only prolong it.  But they must move their hands around to make it look like they’re doing something to help; but like Ronald Reagan famously said, “the nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’” 

Think about this, has raising the minimum wage in the past ever put an end to poverty?  Has it really ever helped those who work minimum wage jobs?  No; it’s artificial market price fixing and it only diminishes the progress that some workers have made to advance themselves to higher wages.

Why can’t I just feel well and not like the air pressure of our planet is going to crush my ribcage? Why do people have to be so fucking loud? Why do people have to say such dumb shit or do such dumb things? The fuck is wrong with today?
