I had never seen a garbage disposal before until I moved to a rathole apartment in Boston to go to college. But, I knew they existed, and I didn't freak out upon seeing one in my new rathole apartment. I was just like okay what are the rules for this thing? Food only, but no bones? Okay, got it. Done.

This woman can’t be for real! I grew up with corn fields around me and in a house with a septic system. I knew what a garbage disposal was as a kid. She has to have a low IQ, I just cannot imagine any other reason.

And if you really don’t know what a disposal is, do you post it on social medial so other people can make fun of you or do you google it and say ok, cool device?

Wonder if she knows what a toilet is? Probably shits into a bag. Jack.
You're talking about that contraption that the 1% use? I hate people like that. I don't know why they'd need a toilet when they have a perfectly good garbage disposal they can deposit into.

She’s a permanently stoned retard , smoking that hank Johnson Guam weed,
thought she could start “ ban garbage disposals” movement.

And get a street named after her in every city. The one in between Malcolm x and mlk blvd.
My town actually has a ban on garbage disposals. Flipping that switch is like a little f*** off to town gov.
I can't fathom how they could enforce this crap.

I was getting worried that Pelosi had her locked up. Everyday I look for our favorite Bimbo to open her mouth. Well, she is back. Along with Bernie.....
Ocasio-Cortez, Sanders call for 15% cap on credit card interest rates

This has to do with capping what credit card companies can charge for interest rates. You know, those big bad banks. It is their fault that people cannot pay off their credit cards. It has nothing to do with the people buying crap that they shouldn't. I think the opposite of these two idiots. I think interest rates should be no less than 35%. That maybe would curb people's spending habits and probably fix the personal debt crisis.

"Care for us! True, indeed! They ne'er cared for us yet: suffer us to famish, and their storehouses crammed with grain; make edicts for usury, to support usurers; repeal daily any wholesome act established against the rich, and provide more piercing statutes daily to chain up and restrain the poor. If the wars eat us not up, they will; and there's all the love they bear us.".....William Shakespeare

Why is she hot and not at the same time? I vary from thinking she's the ugliest woman on earth to thinking she's a solid 8. Someone help me. All politics aside. All Hitler Esque Socialist disarming propaganda aside and her inept brain numbing stupidity aside. Is she hot?
Please get out more and clearly establish standards for yourself.

I had to Google:



So if her apartment is a bougie, is her disposal the passage?
"Bougie", in modern/NYC slang, is short for "bourgeoisie." "This apartment is bougie" means "this apartment is typical of the upper-middle class bourgeoisie (read: white) existence and gentrification." See also "yuppie."

You probably know but bougie is an adjective not a noun.

See, you're not the only Aspie.
Correct, see above.

I prefer the other definition. We already have a word for what you described: Bourgeois. Same number of syllables.

Modern Americans CANNOT parlez le francais. On ne parle pas français. Listening to someone under 30 who hasn't had any francophone experience or training try to pronounce French-origin words is like listening to nails on a chalkboard. Particularly certain demographics who receive their elocution lessons from rap videos.

I notice it rather often because with law school, there's a large amount of French words based on Law French and the 19th Century adoption of French as the language of sophistication here in the US, e.g. "RSVP." I think the problem comes from three things: 1) schools teach to the lowest common denominator and don't really emphasize elocution; 2) French isn't taught in public schools (I don't know about private schools) because of the dominance of Spanish as our second language, the French loss of global power, and the Franco-American community losing their French/Quebecois identity and becoming 'Muricans; and 3) schools teach kids to just read words like how they look and French isn't intuitive to an American. For instance, Texans say "voir dire" as "voor-dire", as in, "dire consequences." "Petite jury" could be said "peh-tight jury."

This will probably continue to get worse as French declines in global prominence and the French become less nationalistic about their language.

Edit: think about it this way. French used to be the language of culture, the arts, and diplomacy. When was the last time in mainstream culture you heard about the French or about French culture? How often does the average American even think about the French besides as surrender-prone cowards?
