"If you want to hire creative thinkers, interview them in pairs, and beware of the over-eager interviewee nodding, bucking, and jiving when you’re trying to tell him or her about your company. That guy’s probably a little slow."

Could your body language during an interview give away the fact that you’re dumb and unimaginative? Stanford scientists think so. (via fastcompany)

Wha? What if you are just a really relaxed person. This is dumb. I feel like it’s resting bitch face… Know what I mean? I am not going to assume you are not creative because you slouch in a chair… Whatever! .

The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.
I’m going to let that sink in.

Ah yes let me just up and leave school right in between my classes so I can go see the friend 40 miles away that i’m currently texting instead of making idle chit chat with the people around me that I don’t particularly care for.Fuck your pretentious shit.


"whines evil technology is making people antisocial its not real communication if its not face to face and im a pretentious self righteous shitbaby that asks random people on the street for the time and feels good about it"


This!

"When we did the Mouth of Truth scene, which is that monument in Rome and the legend is if you dare to put your hand in the Mouth of Truth, if you’ve lied, it’ll bite your hand off. But we had that little scene to do, and I remember an old bit that Red Skelton used to do. When he’d shake hands with somebody, he’d come like that [saying that, Gregory hides his hand in his sleeve]. Well, I said on the side, to Willy Wyler, ‘Well, supposing I spring that on Audrey when I put my hand in the Mouth of Truth. Is it too corny, too awful?’ he said, ‘Oh no, do it, let’s see her reaction. But don’t tell her you’re gonna do it’. So I put my hand in there and then when I brought it out, well Audrey  just screamed and went bonkers and it was a wonderful, spontaneous moment. That was only one take." Gregory Peck

Love that scene even more now that I have read that story.

That is totally me. I always have the twitch (that’s what I call it)..and then, inevitably, I will witness the most horrible tantrum ever and my ovaries just close up.

"Telling my child he’s white also won’t help him understand why children who were less than one-quarter Japanese were interned during World War II; why a stranger would look at him and say there are no “pure races” anymore; why a leading theatre company in our city unabashedly staged a yellowface production of an operetta; why kids on the playground pull back their eyes in a slant and spit out one of those ridiculous anti-Asian chants that just won’t go away. When I tell my son that he is Asian, mixed-race, multiracial, and a person of color, I’m not denying him parts of his ancestral-ethnic heritage. I’m teaching him about the race politics that intrude upon our lives whether we want them to or not. I’m preparing him to exist in a world that obstinately persists in being racially divided. And I’m trying to let him know something about the ways he has and will continue to be judged throughout his life, not because he’s white — but because he’s mixed with color."

A Child’s Host

Seriously, the State Senator of Virginia referred to a woman as a child’s host? Women aren’t even people. WTF
