10 actions that should’ve ended Trump’s candidacy

Remember that time Howard Dean got really excited and shouted “YYEAAAHHHHHH!!” at a campaign rally. Remember how we all looked at him and were like, “well, that was friggin weird,” and collectively decided to not talk about him anymore. Remember when Mitt Romney talked about his binders full of women and we were all like, “okay, that’s different and maybe mildly sexist,” and he lost the presidential race.

Remember when Trump’s opponent, the most heavily scrutinized, over-qualified person to ever run for president was a woman? And we were all like, “well she shouldn’t lose just cuz she’s a chick, right?” and then she did. She lost because she was a chick. And when someone is breaking through a racial or gender barrier, they need to be perfect. And Hillary Clinton wasn’t quite perfect.

Donald Trump on the other hand didn’t even make an attempt at being presidential or representing the American population. He thrived on racism, xenophobia, and bigotry and an antiquated concept of what a ‘man’ is. And collectively a large portion of the American population looked at him and was like, “BLAEEAHHH LOCK ‘ER UP. THEY TOOK ‘ER JOBS. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN YOU LOOSERS,” while entirely ignoring the more unjustifiable characteristics of the juvenile they were supporting.

11 reasons you may want to switch to tarp camping – Appalachian Trials

Cooped up in a nylon wrapper can be disorienting and uncomfortable. Tarps can be pitched with ceilings high enough to stand under and open on all sides. For drastically less weight, they can be outright tremendous, big enough to sleep a dozen hikers, or just to give yourself a comfortable vantage of the torrential rain outside. And with a simple lean-to tarp setup, you’re open to quickly and easily pinpoint exactly what that rustling is in the distance.
