From the folks over at Demonoid IRC:
PSA: Do not use the “new” Demonoid. Everything about the site says sketchy.
* The site is not run by the original Demonoid staff or owners, or anyone knowingly affiliated with them in any way.
* The .vu address is actually hosted in a United States…
I am legit having a argument over facebook with my girlfriend and her friend about whether it’s called Soda or Pop.
Where I’m from it’s called Soda, not pop. Therefore I’m right xD
It is pop.
everything is a coke
YOU WANNA GO
In Quebec we call them soft drinks. We just have to be different from everyone else. ><
I always forget, and then get funny looks when I ask what soft drinks they have at a restaurant or whatever.
If I’m at a restaurant I ask what kind of soda or sometimes I say soft drink. If I’m being silly I say soda pop.
I cannot get over the fact that Martin Freeman is the tallest person in this photo
now look who takes the precaution of short friends
he looks so proud there
Is he sucking in his cheeks so he has chiseled cheekbones?
In Nigeria, the Lady Mechanic Initiative trains women to fix cars. Founder Sandra Aguebor-Ekperuoh started the initiative after having a vision from God.
She has trainee mechanics all around the country. Some of the young women are from disadvantaged backgrounds, some former sex workers and others just hugely enthusiastic.
Faith Macwen, who graduated from the Lady Mechanic Initiative in 2009, now works for a top automobile company in Nigeria.
Macwen says men at work were initially dismissive. “Actually, at first, the male were feeling, ‘You can’t do it, that it’s our world.’ But we made them realize — I made them realize — we can do it. I want other ladies to take up the opportunities. Go out. When you have a flair for something, go in for it,” she says. “Don’t let anybody tell you you can’t do it. You can do it.”
