We’re always burning calories no matter what our bodies are doing. That’s the entire reason why we need to eat them - It takes energy in order to stay alive. So measuring out calories in terms of only exercise seems so silly. We’re going to use them at some point, even if we don’t exercise with the specific purpose of burning them off.
So I prefer to measure these calories in the time it takes me to sleep them off:
- Donut: 3.7 hours
- Egg McMuffin: 4.8 hours
- Cookie: 7 hours
- Pizza: 5.1 hours
- Rice: 4.3 hours
- Cinnamon Bun: 8 hours
- Burger: 12 hours
- Brownie: 6 hours
- Fries: 8.7 hours
- Burrito: 6.6 hours
A burger is much less intimidating once you realize that you can burn it off by just laying in bed all day. Literally.
I started thinking one day how I’ve never really seen any serious traditional ladyheads of black women in tattooing. If I can’t think of any, that at least means its rare if anything. Sadly, racism still exists in tattooing, and I’ve unfortunately witnessed it countless times. It’s fucked up and it makes me hate a lot of the trends that so many people try to pass off as continuing on tradition. I hope the new generation of tattooers starts to bring in more of their own personality and creates work with care and mindfulness. Our work is too important to ignore our influence. This is a big “fuck you” to all the racist fucks I’ve met in this craft, and hopefully the start of some new imagery from my peers. Beauty is beauty.
such a stand up gentleman.
I still want to trade with you
Bless this post and OP <3
I’m just going to leave this here because it’s something I’d never thought about, nor is it something I’ve ever heard a tattooed friend or an artist contemplate, and that says a lot. Also because this flash is lovely.

“My weight/loss/gain since I was a child has tormented me. No amount of help has ever helped my pain about it. But YOU have. My boyfriend prefers me curvier, when I eat and am healthy and not so worried about my looks, I’m happy. Happier then I have ever been. I am not going to go on a psycho-spree because of scrutiny. This is who I am. And I am proud at any size.”

Two years ago today, Dr. George Tiller, one of only three practitioners providing late term abortions in the US, was viciously gunned down in church in front of his wife and other parishioners who tried to stop the shooter. He was an incredible man, who never intended to carry on his father’s practice after his parents, brother, and sister-in-law were killed in an aircraft accident. But when he moved home to Wichita to take care of his one year-old nephew, he found that his father had left behind a community of desperate women who needed services free of judgment. After one of these women died from a botched illegal abortion, Tiller took over his father’s clinic in 1970, and ran it for 39 years (in which time he was fire-bombed in 1986, and shot in his car 5 times in 1993).
In this article, various patients remember Dr. Tiller and how he affected their lives. I truly defy anyone, anti-choice or not, to read these stories and still be incapable of feeling any empathy for Dr. Tiller or his patients.
I can relate, lol. Sometimes they’re just too catchy! :)
