“For more than a decade, Ginsburg has worked with a trainer in the Supreme Court’s small ground-level exercise room. Recently, Breyer used a machine that Ginsburg had been using; she set it at six, while he could handle only five. Kagan uses the same trainer as Ginsburg, and when the younger Justice struggles with fifteen-pound curls the trainer says, ‘C’mon! Justice Ginsburg can do that easily!’”

yeah, don’t talk about anything substantial or controversial or anything that has actually contributed to making you you. be a fake watered-down version of yourself. connect on vapid, superficial levels. <3

yeah if someone’s not willing to talk about either food or politics then it’s gonna be one boring date

I’m not saying my family drinks too much. I’m just saying if we lived in Maine we could comfortably fund a small nation with our bottle returns.

so story time. across the street from us (in Maine) there used to be a redemption center, where you bring your bottles and cans for cash back. and every year there was a family from Rhode Island, where you don’t get cash back, who saved all their recyclables all year, and once a year drove up in their pickup truck with the back *full* of bags of cans, to return them. they funded their entire week-long Maine vacation every year using returnables

note: it is illegal to redeem recyclables in one state that were purchased in a different state. they took a week-long illegally-funded vacation every year
