Attention all foundation personnel: SCP-049 has breached containment and is showing some sick tricks

What do Trans Women have to do with this?

35

u/Mercarcher 8d ago

The prime directive of the trans agenda is to sieze SCP-113 by any means necessary.

8

u/Proton555 8d ago

funny thing is, that the trans community actually does have a prime directive
(That if you find someone, who you have suspicions about being trans, but they haven't realized it yet, you're not supposed to tell them and disrupt their natural development. Literally the egg prime directive.)

4

u/Mercarcher 8d ago

Just send them to r/egg_irl and be on your way.

7

u/OneEyedOneHorned 8d ago

Unlike Star Trek, the trans community takes the Prime Directive seriously.

u/MagicallyMalicious 9d ago

I’m sure you’re great at lots of other things!

I’m horrible at opening canned goods. I’m almost 40, I have kids and a career I enjoy. But I always shred the can and end up having to pry it open with a butter knife. 🤷🏻‍♀️

12

u/SneedyK 8d ago

I love this optimism this early in the morning! You’re starting off my day on positivity, and it’s uncommon! Thanks!

My most maladroit issue comes when I’m eating. I learned bad eating habits as a teenager as my friends and I had to drive to fast food, eat and get back to campus in 50 minutes. We scarfed it down day after day.

Now I’m 41 and I feel like I shouldn’t be allowed in fancier restaurants. I’m house-trained, know the protocol for manners, I just eat like an escaped mental patient. Also I naturally look like a starving guy, but I feel like I eat like a slob who goes after everything. Is it a metabolism thing?

u/Natural_Technology33 8d ago

haha. Even the cans with the tabs - I break those damn things off more than not.

4

u/SingularityPrime 8d ago

Have you tried buying a good quality can opener? I had a cheapy that struggled with its job for a while. Instead of puncturing fully through the lid, it would lose its grip on the can and slide up a bit, leaving bits still connected.

3

u/Tiops 8d ago

Are you left handed by any chance? I always sucked at opening cans, until I learned that I was messing up for being left handed but using a regular opener.

u/kev_bot28 8d ago

Your optimism is lovely this early in the morning.

As for your can opener woes, There are possibly 2 things at work here:

1) You may be using a can opener incorrectly- most people do and I had the same issues you talk about until I changed how I open the can. https://youtu.be/21rxwY7o1d8

2) The blade may just be dull - who ever thinks of getting a new can opener?

Also, there are counter mounted can openers that make it a breeze, they require installation however, it’s usually what they use in restaurants.

Just before seeing this, I went to pick up the remote and my phone just fell out of my hand because apparently my brain can only grip one at the same time. I'm right there with you.

And that's without an audience and someone filming you! Imagine! If I had even 5 people watching me drink my coffee, it would be an outright mess. Performers deserve more credit than we give them.

u/Fluffy_Fsh 9d ago

Please don't, I'm a relatively talented object manipulator and circus artist and while I can carry a coffee, I can't hold down a job and I'm perpetually broke.

Only benefit is that pretty much every other circus artist I've ever met is also a queer, neurodivergent person with a huge heart and an empty wallet so there's camaraderie at least 😅

4

u/Natural_Technology33 8d ago

Hear hear! I think life is truly lived on the fringes - and there is something wonderful about people who embrace their queerness. I'd rather be broke and happy, than the richest person in the world, and stuck in a rut. I'm somewhere in the middle (no where near the richest person in the world - but somewhat stuck in a rut!).
