An Israeli company called SodaStream builds an environmentally sustainable product that allows for soda to be produced inside the home without having to waste many soda bottles. Jews, Israeli Arabs, Palestinians, and Druze all work together inside of this factory. Some of the Arabs have even reached management level positions within the company and the company provides Muslim worshipers within the company a prayer room, accompanied by break time so that they can pray.
Additionally, SodaStream offers Palestinians a livable salary that permits them to live a life full of dignity, something which many other Palestinian Authority-run jobs don’t provide. Yet, members of the BDS Movement seek for SodaStream to be shut down, even though it is an oasis of coexistence between Jews and Arabs in Judea and Samaria. The Palestinian workers at this factory are opposed to this, claiming that such attempts would take away one of the few means available for them to earn a decent salary.
WHY DO THEY ALWAYS SLICE THEIR PALM TO GET BLOOD. do you know how many nerve endings are in your hand?!?! why don’t they ever cut the back of their arm or their leg or something omfg
me everytime a character in a movie has to get a few drops of their blood for some ritual bullshit (via jtoday)
WHILE WE’RE AT IT, why do people try to cross those skinny bridges over lava/chasms/whatever by walking upright. IT’S CALLED CENTER OF GRAVITY. get on your hands and knees and crawl across that thing. HUG IT. SCOOT YOUR BUTT ACROSS. “but i look stupid!” lalalala but we’ll avoid that ~dramatic moment~ where you almost fall over and die because your damn fucking self wanted to look COOL
and stop yanking IV lines out of your arms the minute you wake up in the hospital
Kathryn Bigelow, director of The Hurt Locker, is the only woman EVER to win a Best Director Oscar. Only 4 women have ever been nominated. Women made up only 6% of Directors for the top movies of 2013. There were NO female nominees for directing, cinematography, film editing, writing (original screenplay), or music (original score) during last year’s Academy Awards.
I can never get enough Winchester code words. Also, being from the pacific northwest, my first reaction was “what the hell is a Poughkeepsie?”
I had to google it. Apparently it’s a city in New York.
What the heck happened in Poughkeepsie?
I love when we heard their code words. Like funky town. Or how if they get separated, to go to the first motel in the phone book. Can we have more Winchester secrets, please?
Winchester Secrets We Currently Know:
- Poughkeepsie: Drop everythign and run
- Funky Town: There is a gun at my head.
- If they get separated, go to the first motel in the phonebook
- Five-O: I’ve been caught, get the Hell out of here
- 11-2-83: The combination to the compartment in Baby.
