My chihuahua is turning 20 in a couple of months. We’ve been making jokes that she’s going for the record… Turns out she wasn’t really that far off.

Too angry to die

I have a little mixed dog part shiba and part shitzu. She almost died when born since she was a runt and she’s stayed tiny her whole life. She’s 21 going on 22 soon.

“oh no that’s so sad those poor mussels :(”

*Looks at sub name*

“Oh thank god those invasive things are gone!”

_qst2o91_

I went to a local wrestling show in March and one of the wrestlers was a buff guy named “Zebra Muscles” and his bit was that he was an invasive species to Austin lol

Good on them. Grew up in a place that was infested with invasive zebra mussels. They’re a horrible organism. More common than rocks at the beach and razor sharp. I’d often see them growing on top of other shellfish. They SUCK

Not so uplifting ftom the mussels’ POV /s

Most lake around Switzerland are plaggued by that thing sadly

Student loan borrowers will get help after an NPR report and years of complaints

“4.4 million borrowers had been repaying their loans for at least 20 years but only 32 had had debts canceled under IDR.”

I’ve never had a late payment in the last 37 years of paying on my loans. I’d be happy if they canceled mine after 40 years of payments. I asked Navient about it last year and they told me that mine could never be forgiven.

> The department and its office of Federal Student Aid (FSA) pledge to conduct a “one-time account adjustment” to give borrowers credit for time spent in what it considers unjustifiably long forbearances: more than 12 consecutive months or more than 36 cumulative months.

Kind of ridiculous they’re going saddle tax payers with someone else’s loan agreements.

Would love to see: “US holds universities and colleges accountable for outrages tuition fees”

SunPakoa

One problem to me is forcing every kid to think they need college. Every highschool shoves these college fairs down your throat and make kids feel lesser if they don’t go. So many of my friends went to do jobs they didn’t need a degree for. They also should be capping interest rates and making them more borrower friendly (no int charged till school over, not letting it accrue like they do now).

Y’all should read the article before posting your ignorant “socialism” comments

Treating symptoms while ignoring the root cause.

MrRGG

Should be noted that this is simply carrying out existing programs for borrowers who are in public service positions or who are low income.

This is great news obviously for those who are eligible, but the headline could easily be reframed as “US government continues to do what it has been doing.”

Arizona Iced Tea founder says the 99-cent price tag will stay the same

“The price is on the can, though.”

Dr__Ed

I can’t find the 99 cent ones anywhere in my area, they only sell more expensive bottles.

Phyr8642

That’s great! I don’t usually drink their tea, but I appreciate them calling out bs. Tea is cheap to make, it’s the packaging costs. Most products have skyrocketed in price lately, businesses taking advantage of current events to jack up prices. Good on them for saying no.

Edit: thanks for the upvotes and award. But man, some comments here are nuts, especially since it’s about tea in a can!

Now they just need to start selling them in gas stations again.

Blue corn and melons: meet the seed keepers reviving ancient, resilient crops – In north-western New Mexico, traditional Indigenous farming methods are being passed down to protect against the effects of climate crisis

> In the summer, this otherwise dry stretch of land turns into a “food forest”, said Lowden, pulling up a photo on his phone showing lush rows of corn, intercropped with Hopi yellow beans, and Acoma winter squash – the “three sisters” of Pueblo agriculture.

> On the edges of the field are giant heirloom sunflowers – used to attract pollinators – and rows of amaranth. “By companion cropping, you’re replicating those systems you see in nature,” said Lowden, describing the traditional Indigenous practice of interplanting crops to deter weeds and pests, maintain moisture and enrich the soil. “This is thousands of years of knowledge passed down,” he added.

Local here. Just FYI, it’s pronounced “ACK-comma”, not “a coma”.

I’m sure Montesano will find a reason to sue them…

I better start seeing some blue melons, or an Oxford Comma, real quick…

Car dealers: *raise prices by $4,000*

ASK_IF_IM_PENGUIN

But to use that, is it an automatic deduction from the sale price?

or am I gonna have to scour my local govt websites to find the form to request the form to be means tested to see if i qualify for the incentive?

Brigadier_Beavers

Lot of negativity in these comments but I’m writing a paper on this for global studies this year and this stuff works for EV adoption – lot of proof from Norway articles

PhoenixJDM

In Quebec, Canada generally, EVs under $ 60,000 CDN get an $8000 discount from the province. The fed government gives $5000 more. Total discount, $13,000. This is taken off the final price of the vehicle at the time of purchase.

meanwhile here in australia there’s literally a fucking tax on buying an EV.

How did they survive in the wild before humans started gathering them?

So how did these animals live before human domestication anyway?
