sheblindedmewithwords: Hm…. Is the call to prayer in the wake of tragedy by religious people an expression of dumbfoundedness towards the absurdity that is existence and the concession of the hope that things will be okay even though there’s no reason to think so? Further, is it a call to action? Or is it a means of desensitizing us to action, by making us think that real change is out of our...

And so concludes the 5-part series of Things my Mother Says. Stay tuned for more because I’m stuck with this woman for two more days. And she wonders why I barely come home.
Things my mother says: Part 5
Mom: I don't think single mom's should get free school unless they deserve it.
Things my mother says: Part 4
Mom: Jessica, we needs guns! What are you going to do if the government tries to take away your rights?
Me: I'm not delusional enough to think that my government is out to sabotage me.
Mom: Well you're crazy for thinking the government is even REMOTELY on your side.
Me: Yeah. Because a rifle can stand up to drones and tanks. That's like bringing a knife to a gun fight.
Things my mother says: Part 3
(talking about affrimative action)
Mom: If I was discriminated against in the workplace, would your boyfriend help me out?
Me: Mom, you're not a minority. . .
Mom: So I'm being treated unequally!
Me: Mom, you don't understand.
Mom: IF there is racism, there isn't any in MY workplace.
Me: You work with all white people...
Mom: So what? If I did work with *whispers*black*whispers* people, they wouldn't be discriminated against.
Me: Not openly, no. But indiscriminately, yes.
Things my mother says: Part 2
Me: *struggling to open water bottle*
Mom: Need help with that?
Me: No, I'm just not used to bottled water because I drink from tap.
Mom: Why do you do that?
Me: Because bottled water is bad for the environment and made with plastic.
Mom: *squeezes water bottle* Doesn't seem like much plastic to me.
Me: Well it ends up equaling a lot. Not only that, but plastic is made from oil.
Mom: Oil comes from the ground, Jessica. It's natural and that means it's good.
Things my mother says: Part 1
Grandpa: So what's the plan with your boyfriend's career?
Me: Well, he wants to do something along the lines of improving affirmative action in the workplace.
Mom: Don't tell my he actually believes in affirmative action...
Me: Well yeah he does, and so do I.
Grandma: What's affirmative action?
Mom: It's where people are treated unequally.

skepticalavenger: foodncocaine: “A fire-breathing dragon lives in my garage” Suppose (I’m following a group therapy approach by the psychologist Richard Franklin) I seriously make such an assertion to you. Surely you’d want to check it out, see for yourself. There have been innumerable stories of dragons over the centuries, but no real evidence. What an opportunity! “Show me,” you say. I...
