Try screaming, 'Get a job!' at one of these folks. They'd laugh in your face.

When your back's against the wall, how far would you go to confront a monstrous system that's devouring your family's future?

Spain's had a rough go since the world economy tanked in 2008 (great explainer here). And what's happened since should sound way too familiar: Banks got bailed out, and people are getting sold out.

Today, the country is in full-blown depression. A quarter of the workers can't find jobs, and young people have it especially bad. It's a painfully complicated situation that isn't improving quickly enough because, well, politicians.


The Spanish government is shredding safety nets and making rule changes that are supposed to boost employment, but in reality they're turning people into disposable assets and worsening inequality.

Why are they doing it? Because Germany said so. The stated goal is to reduce debt (which it isn't), but the entire premise for the plan — that Spain spent too much in the run-up to the crisis — is completely bogus. It was the banks! They were slinging shitty loans like Halloween candy, creating a debt-driven bubble. Well, the f**king thing burst, and here we are.

Protesters want the government to quit trippin' over debts that were questionable to begin with and start investing in stuff that's actually going to help, like education, health, and employment efforts.

If you're wondering why you should care, keep in mind that we live in a tangled global economy and what happens in Europe can have significant global effects. But beyond that, who really wants to live in a world that values profits over people?

Brittany Kinley, a mother from Mansfield, Texas, had a hilarious mom fail her and she's chalking it up to being just another crazy thing that happened in 2020.

When Kinley filled out the order form for her son Mason's kindergarten class pictures, there was an option to have his name engraved into the photos. But Kinley wasn't interested in having her son's name on the photos so she wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" on the box.

Well, it appears as though she should have left the box blank because the computer or incredibly literal human that designed the photographs wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" where mason's name should be.

Marcos Alberti's "3 Glasses" project began with a joke and a few drinks with his friends.

The photo project originally depicted Alberti's friends drinking, first immediately after work and then after one, two, and three glasses of wine.

But after Imgur user minabear circulated the story, "3 Glasses" became more than just a joke. In fact, it went viral, garnering more than 1 million views and nearly 1,800 comments in its first week. So Alberti started taking more pictures and not just of his friends.

In December 2018, The Utah Department of Transportation opened the largest wildlife overpass in the state, spanning 320 by 50 feet across all six lanes of Interstate 80.

Its construction was intended to make traveling through the I-80 corridor in Summit County safer for motorists and the local wildlife.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that there were over 100 animal incidents on the interstate since 2016, giving the stretch of highway the unfortunate nickname of "Slaughter Row."
