Why Do We Have Sex?
whateverlolawants: After conducting one of the most comprehensive studies on why people have sex, a study at The University of Texas at Austin revealed hundreds of complex motivations—from the spiritual to the vengeful. People’s motivations ranged from the mundane (“I was bored”) to the spiritual (“I wanted to feel closer to God”) and from the altruistic (“I wanted the person to feel good about...

i was outside and on the phone with my boss. a couple different runners came by. I turn around to leave and see $5 folded up on the ground. I thought to myself ‘this has to be a runner’s smoothie money…i can’t take this. Hopefully they will come back on their path and be happy that it’s still here” so i left it.

Overheard In The Office (via peterwknox)
CSR, on speakerphone: And where would you like this order shipped?
Secretary: 123 Main St.*, Los Alamos, New Mexico.
CSR : We don't ship out of the country.
Secretary: That's fine, but this address is in the country.
CSR : No, you said to ship it to New Mexico.
Secretary: Yes, New Mexico is a state in the US.
CSR : Sorry, but we can't ship out of the US.
Secretary: Do you have a supervisor I can talk to, please?
CSR supervisor: This is Tim. Can I help you?
Secretary: I hope so, Tim. Your employee doesn't seem to understand that New Mexico is a state in the United States, and so refuses to ship me your product.
Supervisor: Well, that's true. We can't ship out of the country. I'm sorry ma'am.
Secretary, raising her voice a little: Have you never even heard of the state of New Mexico? It's one of the big, square ones? It's right between Texas and Arizona? It's one of the 50 United States?
Supervisor: I'm sorry, it's just our policy not to ship out of the US.
Secretary: Tim, let me get this straight. Your company is going to lose a $14,000 order because the people in your customer service department are too moronic to know or comprehend that the state of New Mexico is a part of the United States?
Supervisor: Yes, ma'am. That's our policy.
Secretary, completely exasperated: Well, I guess there's nothing more to be said, is there?
Supervisor: No, ma'am. Have a nice day.

margeeka: Since posting one of my old diary entries, I’ve been thinking about starting up a Public Tumblr Group for people that want to post old diary entries. Something similar to Mortified’s Woe and Tell section, but better (because it would be a Tumblr). Does something like this already exist? If not, would anyone be interested in this kind of thing?
