I love that the people arguing over raising minimum wage are probably people who have never had to work at minimum wage most likely while doing school and/or taking care of a family at the same time. And waiting to be promoted to a manager at the shitty fast food chain or retail shop they work at so they can live a little less shitty. Except then they’re trapped in that place much longer. Because you don’t generally “get the skills” as a Starbucks cashier to suddenly go be a stockbroker or chemist or whatever the hell. Why not let some politicians live on $8 an hour with ever-rising rent? Tear up the system? Start an experiment? Let it roll
YOU GUYS IT’S DECEMBER 10TH YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS HAS BEEN IN MY QUEUE SINCE FEBRUARY
How to tape up your hands before a fight
Let’s go beat someone up! But no seriously, does this prevent pain or something ? What do these bandages actually serve ?
It keeps your bones aligned to prevent injury, compresses soft tissue to make the fist more rigid, and pads the knuckles. Skull bones are sturdier than hand bones, and even if you know what you’re doing there’s a high risk of damaging your metacarpals if you punch someone barehanded. It’s why they recommend if you find yourself in a fight unprepared to bunt their nose with the butt of your palm, because if the other person tucks their head and you end up hitting their forehead instead it’ll do a lot less damage to your palm than your knuckles.
