Look how many people hate him. I’m pretty damn happy about that 😁😁😁😁😁😁

All I want is this post to get a small amount of a million notes

All I want is this to be the most popular post in the history of this site

Let’s make the notes disappear y'all

I’m doing my part.

President Velveeta plagiarized his inauguration cake.

A. Cake.

This is real life.

They took the man’s cake design like they are so low down



it’s cool that the bakery also gave a shoutout to the original cake designer

like they absolutely knew how shady this whole thing was and managed to handle it in the best way possible

Update on #cakegate.

Also? It was inedible. Made mostly out of styrofoam. Trump’s team specifically requested a knockoff of Obama’s cake that no one could eat.

What a perfect metaphor.

This whole thing has confused me for two days solid, because I couldn’t figure out several things:

1. Why would they copy the cake when they knew they couldn’t hope to prevent it being photographed and comparisons to earlier cakes being made?

2. Why on earth, in that case, an EXACT REPLICA when the baker OFFERED to make them something new/inspired? 

The fact that most of it is inedible isn’t a shocker, most high-tiered wedding cakes are too (was the Obamas’ cake fully edible? That would actually be much more surprising). My parents’ multi-tiered wedding cake was two actual cakes on top of several more frosted “cakes” made of cardboard. 

But I think I’ve figured it out. 

I think Donald Trump peed on the cake. I allege Donald Trump peed on the cake. 

We know he’s furious about anything to do with the Obamas and that if he has a chance for any kind of petty revenge he will totally take it regardless of how stupid it makes him look. Intentionally ripping off Barack Obama’s cake makes him look pretty stupid, and let me tell you, I bet he looked inordinately, incredibly stupid peeing on a fake Obama cake. 

Picture Donald Trump, allowed into the kitchen after the cake has been eaten for a moment of privacy with his legacy. Imagine his red face a rictus of rage, like an angry, poorly-lit blob of half-risen bread dough, as he impotently pees on frosted styrofoam in some kind of magical-thinking spell that will make him someone most of the country doesn’t hold in complete disdain. Picture him trying to pee harder, as if it will somehow put him on even footing with a man he knows he can’t hope to emulate even in the most basic of mannerisms. 

Hold that mental image in your head for the next four years and whenever you are tired of fighting, remember Donald Trump is so completely incapable of being a better person that he peed on a fake cake like a toddler.

Then go punch a Nazi. Do it for the poor fake cake. 

@copperbadge ^^All of this. And yes Obama’s inaugural cake was entirely edible, because he deserved the best.

That makes sense, they’re a class act. 

And they did have a lot more people to feed.

In the wake of Carrie Fisher’s death four days after she suffered a massive heart attack, one thing that was reported by some news outlets was that she had been in “significant distress” on the flight. We don’t know the exact details of this, but in my experience as an EMT, it often means “hysterical woman having a panic attack and thinking she’s dying…*woman dies* …oops, guess she really was dying.” 

It is SO IMPORTANT to remember that many women present in what medicine considers an ‘atypical’ manner for heart attack, but it actually IS typical…for women. Women are more than twice as likely to die from cardiac emergencies, not because our physiology is that much different than men and thus gives us a worse chance at survival (it’s actually better if treated promptly and adequately), but because our symptoms are more likely to go unrecognized or to be dismissed entirely.

Thus, please take a moment to review and pass on this list of cardiac distress symptoms as seen in women: 

Shortness of breath - This is the most common one. If a woman, especially one without prior history of respiratory issues or shortness of breath, seems to be having trouble catching her breath and/or complains of such, pay very close attention. If she continues to feel winded after sitting or laying down, it’s probably time to call for help.

Feeling of impending doom - This can range from a sense of general unease to a full-blown panic attack. This one is extremely important, and is the symptom most commonly disregarded by doctors and hospital staff. If a woman tells you that she feels ‘not quite right,’ or like something terrible is about to happen, or that she’s about to die, LISTEN TO HER FFS. 

Nausea and “indigestion” - Also common. Heart attacks frequently present as a feeling of vague nausea or indigestion, but unlike typical heartburn, antacids and other OTC treatments will not alleviate the symptoms.

Hiccups - Unexplained hiccups, especially if seen with any of the other symptoms listed above, can be indicative of heart muscle that is being acutely or chronically starved of oxygen.  The exact mechanism isn’t known, but it’s thought that the enzymes released by the dying muscle irritate the pericardium and adjacent diaphragm, causing spasms in the healthy muscle. 

Fatigue - This is another commonly seen symptom, and is often overlooked or ignored as just transient tiredness. Many women having a heart attack will complain of feeling “flu-like” symptoms of nausea, sweating, fatigue, and shortness of breath, and they’ll lie down for a nap and never wake up. 

Lightheadedness - A feeling of being lightheaded or about to faint isn’t terribly uncommon in many benign conditions, and many women experience it on a monthly basis. However - be aware when it appears unexpectedly or unexplainedly, and/or with one or more of the other symptoms on this list. 

Sweating (diaphoresis) - Heart attack does funny things to the sympathetic nervous system, which is behind reflexes such as sweating and hiccups. If a lady is experiencing unexplained or excessive sweating, pay attention to anything else that might be going on with her. 

Tingling or numb extremities - A feeling of numbness or “pins and needles” tingling in the extremities can be an important sign that cardiac function is being impaired and those body parts aren’t receiving enough oxygen. 

Peripheral and/or central cyanosis - Often accompanies tingling or numbness, and is considered a later-stage symptom of cardiac distress and heart failure. Finger and toe tips will turn pale or blue first, and lips and gums after that. Important to remember that darker-skinned women may present cyanosis as ashen, grey, or darker purple rather than pale or blue. 

Back pain - Pain between the shoulder blades, in the cervical spine, or even further down in the torso or lumbar region can be a symptom of heart attack. Alone, it isn’t that suspicious, but if it’s unrelenting and presents with any of the other symptoms above, keep a watchful eye on things. 

Classic “crushing” or “tight” chest pain or pressure - Women DO experience this classic pain, too, just not as frequently as men do. This may be due to our higher pain threshold, or differences in blood volume, or maybe we’re just not sure because nobody’s bothered to really study it. Whatever the reason, some women do still experience the crushing or tightening pain, and others may experience less painful pressure or tightness that doesn’t seem to be relieved by anything.

Arm and jaw pain - Another “classic” heart attack symptom, and a bit more common than central chest pain. Unexplained pain in the left arm or shoulder, and on the left side of the neck or jaw, should not be ignored by anyone.

Since 2010, every senior class has had 100 percent of their students admitted to college, the school’s website says. The school’s motto is “We Believe,” which serves as a reminder “that Urban Prep students will not fall into the trap of negative stereotypes and low expectations,” the school’s website says.

The OA: hella interesting but… honestly, I would give my right arm to have had the chance to give feedback in the draft stages.

@sherlokitten @welcomepineapple
