Bad, Family, and Phone: 2 When my grandfather was young he owned a roadside motel, and my mother used to do work around the motel for the family.

This isn't a little crank auger, it's a full-on electrical powered snake with a big motor on the back and a little grabby claw on the end So he fires up the snake and sends the metal coil down into the pipes with the claw closed, figuring whatever's down there he'll just bump it a bit, push it down the pipes until it clears - but this doesn't happen either. Finally, in frustration, he twists the control to open the mechanical claw at the end of the coil, closes it on something, throws the motor in reverse and starts to pull it back up By now a couple of members of the staff have gathered in the room to try and tigure out what the hell got flushed down the toilet that this giant machine couldn't remove.

Bad, Family, and Phone: 2
 When my grandfather was young he owned a
 roadside motel, and my mother used to do work
 around the motel for the family. The building was old
 and they had bad pipes, so visits from the plumber
 were a fairly regular occurrence over there
 At one point they had a clogged toilet after a guest
 checked out, so they called the plumber to come
 and clean it out. The plumber came in with his bag
 of gear and set to work, but the clog was stubborn
 After a few tries, he decided he needed to get the
 snake
 I don't know if you've ever seen a serious plumbing
 snake, but the big ones are a sight to behold. This
 isn't a little crank auger, it's a full-on electrical
 powered snake with a big motor on the back and a
 little grabby claw on the end
 So he fires up the snake and sends the metal coil
 down into the pipes with the claw closed, figuring
 whatever's down there he'll just bump it a bit, push it
 down the pipes until it clears - but this doesn't
 happen either. Finally, in frustration, he twists the
 control to open the mechanical claw at the end of
 the coil, closes it on something, throws the motor in
 reverse and starts to pull it back up

 By now a couple of members of the staff have
 gathered in the room to try and tigure out what the
 hell got flushed down the toilet that this giant
 machine couldn't remove. The motor is really
 straining you know that sound an electric motor
 makes when it's working really hard? The whole
 machine is struggling to pull whatever this is back
 up through the pipes and into the roonm
 Finally, after an extended wait, the object is slowly
 dragged, sopping wet, out of the toilet bowl - and it's
 a shower curtain,
 The staff is dumbfounded. They're trying to figure
 out how this could have happened. It would be
 weird enough if the guest had ripped the shower
 curtain down and flushed it down the toilet, but the
 shower curtain in the room is still there. It would be
 even weirder if the guest had brought their own
 shower curtain to the motel and tried to flush it down
 the toilet, but it's clearly one of their shower curtains.
 Did they try and steal the shower curtain, leave with
 it, then feel guilty and come back only to find that
 the shower curtain had already been replaced, and
 then flush the shower curtain down the toilet to hide
 the evidence?

 While they're discussing this, the room phone rings
 The person on the other end is screaming,
 hysterical, so it takes a few minutes for them to
 figure out that it's the housekeeper who was
 cleaning the rooms. After a few moments, the
 manage to get the story out of her:

America, Anaconda, and Andrew Bogut: 100 Nigerian Girls Abducted By Boko Haram Returned To Village @balleralert 100 Nigerian Girls Abducted By Boko Haram Returned To Village - blogged by @worldwidekeege ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The tragic horror that America witnessed almost 4 years ago has relived itself in Nigeria but this time the narrative paints a different ending. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Islamic extremist group Boko Haram which stands for “Western education is forbidden” hit hard again by abducting 110 girls from a Nigerian school in the city of Dapchi. The same group took over 300 girls from a school in Chibok 4 years ago. The group’s reason for kidnapping the girls is to teach them Islam and show them why they shouldn’t practice Western education, instead, they should be married off. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They make the girls live in forests and migrate from place to place running from officials looking to rescue them. All of the girls from the Chibok kidnapping years ago have not been returned but almost 100 of the Dapchi students were returned to their city early Wednesday morning. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As parents and loved ones watched them walk into town, hearts were overjoyed with compassion for what the young ladies had gone through for over a month while being held captive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nigerian officials were highly criticized for not preventing the attack and not doing enough in their rescue efforts to bring the girls home sooner. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hopefully, we can see more efforts for them in the future and maybe the rest of the Chibok girls will be released as well.

Dad, Family, and Fresh: eftbouquetarbiter listen ok. so there's that typical horror trope about the family and the haunted house and yadda yadda. but like, have a movie where this family has gone through many haunted houses before, to the point where they move into this new one and are like 'okay. fresh start number seven and then basically throughout the movie avoid and deflect any typical horror event from the house like it's no big deal. something's under the teen girl's bed? she takes a can of bug spray and some chloroform and uses that shit on the demon creature without turning an eye from whoever she was texting. mom's cooking and the family's nowhere to be found? weird creaking noises? she sighs and continues cooking. family comes through the back door later with some blood on them and carrying a few hockey masks. mom doesn't question it. family looks exhausted and irritated. younger brother walks into his room to find the dog trapped in the wardrobe, wardrobe unable to open? seeping dark smoke and gross liquids? move it and throw some salt around that thang and kick in the back of the wardrobe. dog hops out with a scoff and trots to the door of the room and down the stairs. a shadow follows. lots of growling and snarling and scuffling. a shadow runs fuckin outie back down the hall in fear. dad is in the garage working in the car. car shuts it's doors and locks them. he is unable to get out. he sighs and starts the car. might as well go get groceries. family don't give a fuck. tbonechessor hello, yes, how much do movies cost and how would I fund this there’s a lot of reading for this one but I fully support it - Max textpost textposts

 something's under the teen girl's bed? she takes a can of bug spray and

 continues cooking. family comes through the back door later with some
 blood on them and carrying a few hockey masks. mom doesn't question
 it. family looks exhausted and irritated. younger brother walks into his

 seeping dark smoke and gross liquids? move it and throw some salt
 around that thang and kick in the back of the wardrobe. dog hops out

 runs fuckin outie back down the hall in fear. dad is in the garage working

America, Community, and Crime: The Newest Purge Film Is Taking You Back To How lt All Began With "The First Purge" @balleralert THE FIRST PURGE JULY 4 The Newest Purge Film Is Taking You Back To How It All Began With "The First Purge"- Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For all you horror film fans, specifically of the ThePurge franchise, get ready because its fourth project is coming soon and it’s taking you back to the beginning. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The newest “Purge” film will be a prequel and will tell the story of the “first Purge night,” announced Universal-Comcast Corp. The film will be titled, “The First Purge” and will still be produced by Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes. Writer-director James DeMonaco, the original writer of the series, will be coming back and will work alongside Gerard McMurray, who will be directing. 'The First Purge' will follow the same release date as its predecessor, 'The Purge: Election Year', and will debut the weekend of 4th of July. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’ve never seen any of the films, you might think it’s just like any other horror film. However, unlike any other scary movie 'The Purge' has continuously taken steps to highlight the injustices and greed of America, tackling issues like homelessness, racism and institutional and political oppression. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here is the synopsis of 'The First Purge': “To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This time the film’s creators may just take a few jabs at Trump and his followers by the looks of their poster. Will you be watching?

Read on 👀 ✔️Treat them like real people. While you don’t want to go in the opposite direction and play the “too cool for school” game, try not to spend your time openly fangirling over the person you’re talking to. It’s actually quite uncomfortable to have people gushing over you, and it doesn’t allow for you two to talk as equals. This all sounds really obvious but I’ve heard horror stories about people totally losing it when meeting someone they admire. 🤔 ✔️Don’t be afraid to get a little personal. Talking to important people about their professional lives is already intimidating enough, let alone when they start diving into something personal that doesn’t have anything to do with their career. Keep in mind that real relationships are built once you start straying away from simple small talk , so if the other person opens up that opportunity to really connect, don’t shy away from it! ✔️Don’t skip the follow-up. After you’ve had the opportunity to talk to someone who’s successful and impressive, you might feel like you’re being a nuisance by following up after the conversation.
