Women (and men) look uglier after plastic surgery. Especially after Lip Jobs, Nose Jobs, and Boob Jobs.

Basically title. They just look so much worse than what they did before. Especially Lip Jobs. Most Men hate Lip Jobs, it is really not appealing and very ugly. All people who get unnecessary plastic surgery look worse than they did before and are out 10K. Please don’t get Plastic Surgery, it’s ugly and very expensive.

AITA for uninviting my mother from my wedding after she called my with indecent for having plastic surgery?

My(31m) partner of 11 years Sarah (32f) was in a car accident 3 years ago that led to her having scars across her torso, left arm and jaw. She has been hiding them with make up but you could still feel them and they made her very self conscious. We had talked about her having them removed before we got married as she admitted she wanted to put off getting married due to them. At xmas of 2019 I got an unexpected bonus from work and as we already had a substantial amount set aside for a wedding I suggested we use the bonus to pay for plastic surgery.

This went ahead and Sarah is now much happier with how she looks, she still wears a bit of make up to hide a few small lines from the plastic surgery but they will fade to white with time and be less noticeable(currently they're still quite pink) we had been planning for our wedding in Oct and she recently went dress shopping with my mother, her mother and her sister. At the shop my mother saw the scars and enquired about why they looked so different from her original scars. Sarah explained about the plastic surgery and then my mother didn't mention it again so we didn't think it was a big deal.

Until yesterday when I was at my parents discussing the business dad and I co-own and she butted in telling me it was immoral to marry someone as indecent as Sarah and that it was disgusting that she had plastic surgery. Etc etc etc. There was a massive argument and I told her if she was going to talk about Sarah like that then she wasn't invited to the wedding at which point she broke down in tears and I left. Now half my family is pissed at me for uninviting and upsetting her. AITA here?

Life is short, and you are worth it: get the heavy duty foil and the good plastic wrap

Chef John on Fooooood Wishes (dot com!) recommended in one recipe video using heavy duty aluminum foil when preparing the dish. I’d never used it before and I was out of the regular stuff, so I bought some.

I’m never going back. Regular foil is worthless tissue paper in comparison. Same with the off brand plastic wrap. It’s infuriating garbage that never sticks where it’s supposed to.

Life is short; don’t waste time with discount foil and plastic wrap. You are worth it.

TIFU by feeding my child plastic star glitter

Took my kid (5M) on a brunch date and went shopping. Went to the local pancake house and walked off our feast with some light toy aisle browsing at the Ta**et down the road. Was genuinely having a great day and decided to buy sundae supplies for after dinner since he was being a good sport about running a couple errands here and there.

We had been out for a few hours at this point and the Saturday shoppers were finding their way to the grocery. We managed to get a flavor of ice cream and waffle bowls. My son very not so casually pointed out that I did not get syrup and we dodged the grandma's for him to question all his life choices between Caramel and Strawberry.

Spoiler alert - he let me pick.

As we started to leave, I remembered our younger child (2M) got hold of our giant variety sprinkles and managed to trail them accross the house the weekend before and I suggested we get a brand new pack to celebrate! Having purchased many shiny, metallic, and rainbow sprinkles before, we jogged over to the bake aisle and found the good stuff. Lo and behold, holographic stars. The cutest most sparkleist thing my son and I ever thought to adorn our sundaes. A fresh shipment... I grabbedΒ  a container and ran.

After dinner, and so excited to make our sundaes, we piled together our ingredients and made sure to give ourselves a generous helping of unicorn star sprinkles each. Admiring our work, we dug in.

And that's where the tingling pain began. Tiny little daggers of plastic hell digging in between teeth and cutting my gums. Flat sheaths of stars scrunched as I chewed. Oh no, these were not sprinkles, these were Satan's glitter in a fucking sprinkle container. I went to the kitchen and grabbed the offenders and there was. absolutely. no. food label. My husband was horrified. I was horrified. Our son was finished his sundae.

Called Ta**et and they ran the barcode. Turns out I bought glitter. The guy on the phone about shat himself, we all had a good laugh. My husband told my son he would poop glitter just like mom.

Here is a photo of the stars that were plastic (right) and the stars that are edible (left) that come metallic colors

Tl;dr I was in a rush and bought glitter stars instead of sprinkles and accidentally fed them to my son and myself.


Edit: We did contact our son's pediatrician and emailed a photo of the glitter. He is not concerned and he said since my son just started 2 antibiotics (deer tick)

Don't sell for life changing money, sell for world changing money! Our combined tendies could solve climate change, world hunger, deforestation, plastic pollution, poverty, homelessnes, protect wildlife and so much more!

TL;DR: Once we are rich we should organize and change the world together, we have already started doing so over at r/Apephilanthropy where we will share charity DD, coordinate donations, and potentially also create our very own ideal organization/NGO and fix the worlds problems, together! Come join us!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to change the world in four simple steps:

  1. Hodl GME
  2. Get squeeze tendies
  3. Organize
  4. Change the world for the better!

Title says it all, together we could do so much good with our combined tendies after the squeeze! We would be an unstoppable philanthropic horde of apes the likes of which the world has never seen!

Just imagine:

  • World hunger, eradicated
  • Amazon rainforest, saved
  • Wildlife at the brink of extinction? Not on our watch!
  • Stop climate change? Check
  • Veteran homelessnes? "You get a house, you get a house, everyone gets a house!"
  • etc!

The possibilites are endless once we are rich!

We are already a community dreaming about this and much more over at r/Apephilanthropy, come check us out if you too want to join us in changing the world (after the squeeze).

The plan is to share charity DD so that we don't donate to shills and scammers, coordinate donations (imagine 200 000 apes donating 10 000$ each to any organization!), share charity porn (the best kind) and some have even dabbled with the idea of creating our very own NGO and buy an Airbus for apes to just fly around the world and fix stuff; extreme makeover/queer eye style, just with world problems!

I have already started dreaming of a better world. Together apes can do great things! As another user once said:

>Be a better 1%

Much love, u/A_scandinavian
