Úgy szeretnék gazdag lenni, Egyszer Zsírós kenyeret enni…”



“Úgy szeretnék gazdag lenni .
– Egyszer Zsíros kenyeret enni,
de úgy, hogy ne kelljen kérni!
Zsírt és Kenyeret magam tudjak venni!
S ha rám nézne egy Égi Hatalom,
és SÓT is vehetnék, ha úgy akarom,
és hagymát és …
– De lám megint álmodom
itt e kopott téren, e zúzmarás padon.”

HILARIOUS: 5 Psychological Experiments That Prove Humanity is Doomed


5 Psychological Experiments That Prove Humanity is Doomed

#2. The Stanford Prison Experiment (1971)

The Setup:
Psychologist Philip Zimbardo wanted to find out how captivity affects authorities and inmates in prison. Sounds innocent enough. Seriously, what could go wrong?

Zimbardo transformed the Stanford Psychology Department’s basement into a mock prison. Subjects volunteered by simply responding to a newspaper ad …

Not the actual ad

… and then passing a test proving good health and high-quality mental stability, which are very important factors in deciding who goes to prison. These volunteers were all male college students who were then divided arbitrarily into 12 guards and 12 prisoners. Zimbardo himself decided that he wanted to play too, and elected himself Prison Superintendent. The simulation was planned to run for two weeks.

Yep, nothing at all can go wrong…

“I was illegally terminated”: A working mom’s Wal-Mart nightmare

“I was illegally terminated”: A working mom’s Wal-Mart nightmare

An absurd policy allowed the mega-retailer to run roughshod over Tiffany Beroid. Here’s how bad it really got


Enlarge"I was illegally terminated": A working mom's Wal-Mart nightmareTiffany Beroid

Politicians love to talk about working moms managing their busy lives, particularly when those working moms managing their busy lives decide to go back to school. Add in a pregnancy, and you basically have the ideal hypothetical woman, tailor made to be praised and lionized during some campaign speech from some candidate explaining just how focused they are on the needs of women.

But Tiffany Beroid isn’t a political abstraction, she’s a real person who wanted to finish her degree while managing the demands of work, family and a high-risk pregnancy. And despite a lot of lip service from lawmakers, policies that support working mothers are few and far between. Beroid was employed at a Wal-Mart in Laurel, Maryland for about three years when she decided to go back to school part-time. She said she tried to work out a schedule that could accommodate the demands of work, family and school, but the company responded by cutting her hours. In fact, her hours — and income — were cut so drastically that Beroid eventually had to drop out of school. When her high-risk pregnancy meant that she needed to be put on lighter work, she was placed on unpaid leave. When she raised these problems to Wal-Mart, she was fired.

“Wal-Mart fired me for speaking out,” Beroid said of the ordeal….

Back in 1977, Liza Minnelli famously sang, “If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere.” Since then, the “Theme From New York, New York” has been sung by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Stephen Colbert, embedding mythologies about the Big Apple in our hearts and minds. But if you’re not one of the ultrarich living in a $100 million apartment, when you head home after a hard day of hustling to make it, you might be entering your building through the side door.

On Sunday the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development confirmed to the New York Post

You’ve probably heard the name Shanesha Taylor at this point. She’s the Arizona mother who was arrested for leaving her children in the car while she went to a job interview. Her story went viral thanks likely to a truly heart-wrenching, tear-stained mugshot.
