Back when I first got my very own apartment (no significant-other, no roommate, just me!) I decided to decorate the kitchen in a witch theme. My mother had always had a kitchen witch or two in her kitchens over the years, so I decided to start collecting all cute witch figures, plaques, dolls and any Halloween kitchen items that didn’t actually say Happy Halloween on them anywhere, so that I could have them in the kitchen year-round.
As the months went by I added more and more items. One late summer day I found several species of carnivorous plants while out shopping. I figured a Venus Flytrap, a Pitcher Plant and a Sundew would fit right in on the windowsill of my little bewitching kitchen.
Several weeks later I started to notice that my apartment had a strange smell. It smelled like rotten meat. I cleaned the entire place, top to bottom. The smell lingered. I moved the stove out from the wall and cleaned behind it, and moved the fridge out and cleaned under it, thinking that maybe I’d dropped some raw ground beef somewhere.
The smell didn’t fade.
Mind you: it wasn’t a horrendous stink, just this subtle whiff of rotting meat.
About a year went by and I decided to re-pot all of my carnivorous plants.
While removing them from their pots the smell of rotting meat got really strong, and I realized something I’d learned about botany as a child, but apparently forgotten over the years: carnivorous plants give off an odor of rotting flesh to attract insects.
The moral of this story is don’t get a shit ton of carnivorous plants for your house. They stink.
(what? I told you in the title that it was random.)
Kids work together to create eternal recess
Nobody gives the black girl mob credit for being smart as fuck. They clown but at the end of the day they are really intelligent.
And it’s not subtle at all.
Taystee is a math prodigy in addition to being well-read, Poussey is multilingual, Cindy just knows shit, Suzanne studies Shakespeare, Watson was a good student in addition to being a track star, Vee is basically an evil genius. Piper often learns the most from them; they taught her how to fight and helped translate Pennsatucky’s biblical threat.
The show flat out acknowledges the (academic) intelligence of the black inmates time and time again, but the audience collectively ignores it.

Okay, so since I don’t have my own picture to accompany this story I uploaded one that best fits. However, this is something that happened years ago that to this day, I will never forget. My sims were out on a date and since they had babies (twin boys) they had hired a baby sitter. Well as I am on the date I decided to check back in with the sitter and the boys and LITERALLY AS I FUCKING CLICK ON ONE OF THE BOYS AND GO TO VIEW THE HOUSE I SEE THE BITCH PICK UP MY BABIES AND JUST WALK OFF THE LOT. Since it was an open world, I continued to watch as she took them to the fucking ocean and I fucking shit you not she puts the twins in the water and then they just disappeared. The parents returned and had no reaction whatsoever, they even paid the fucking sitter. The part that sucked: they were never removed from my house list. If I clicked on one of the boys, THE GAME TOOK ME TO THE GOD DAMMED OCEAN TO SEE NOTHING BUT FUCKING WATER.
I will never live this down and upon finding your URL, I felt the need to share this with you all.
LITERALLY MY FAVORITEThis is so much better than any russian roulette or “poison cookie” analogy.
there is a huge difference between genuinely liking someone and liking the attention they give you and it took me a long time to realise that
