    I went over to my parent's house tonight for a get-together with my family for my birthday (I turn 32 on Tuesday!).

    My sister-in-law works at a bakery and takes advantage of any opportunity to bake something for a family function. Well, she knows that Back to the Future is my all-time favorite movie and this is what she came up with for my cake:

    She went above and beyond! I love her to death for this cake (and it was deelish too!). She also put words on the other three sides "Save the clocktower" "Great Scott!" and "1.21 jigowatts". I was pretty impressed with the attention to detail since she isn't a BTTF fan, but she said she came up with everything herself.

    This is not my car, it's a Corvette owned by a guy working in my building. The Klingon symbol stickers have been there a long time (including a large one in the center of the rear window), but the characters are new. I need to find out where he got these!

    You should buy more tribbles and keep adding a few every day to his car, secretly.

    The best part about those decals is the TOS Klingon. We don't see enough classic '60s Klingons on Trek merchandise.

    It gets worse. Now Jack in the Box accepts EBT as payment...

    Most of those energy "drinks" aren't even worth getting for free.

    So what?

    Seriously, fuck this noise. It's hard as hell to be on food stamps -- it's scary, humiliating, and depressing, and a major part of that is the knowledge that people are judging everything you put in your basket.

    You know what? It's really none of your business what people on food stamps eat.

    This. I'm one of those "government employees". I'm currently involved in the conversion of our current EBT system to a new one from Xerox over the next several months. There's so much bullshit out there about fraud and "I saw someone buying lobster with EBT". Food stamp fraud is on a par with voter fraud as a valid issue. No - some foods aren't healthy. So what? Find another way to shame people...
