Apparently the Poplar Street Pub in Utah thinks it’s okay to bar people with service animals from their establishment.
(Spoiler: It’s completely not okay. It’s actually rather illegal.)
While I agree with the person in this situation (there should be no reason why someone would refuse service based on a service animal), that sign is up there for a reason. This particular place, the Poplar Street Pub was mostly in the wrong when it used that sign for this purpose, but there are cases when that type of sign is important.
What Conditions Allow a Restaurant to Refuse Service?
There a number of legitimate reasons for a restaurant to refuse service, some of which include:
- Patrons who are unreasonably rowdy or causing trouble
- Patrons that may overfill capacity if let in
- Patrons who come in just before closing time or when the kitchen is closed
- Patrons accompanied by large groups of non-customers looking to sit in
- Patrons lacking adequate hygiene (e.g. excess dirt, extreme body odor, etc.)
Sometimes, it’s necessary that that sign is there to prevent potentially dangerous or rowdy customers to enter your establishment in the first place. As my family is in the service business, I see legitimate reasons to have a sign like that.
Crispy Salt and Pepper French Toast
- 1 EGG
- 1 TABLESPOON MILK
- SPRINKLE OF SALT
- 1/4 TEASPOON BLACK PEPPER
- 1 TABLESPOON GREEN ONIONS
- 1 TABLESPOON CILANTRO
- 2 SLICES THICK BREAD, PREFERABLY DAY-OLD OR STALE
- BUTTER OR OIL FOR THE PAN
- SRIRACHA TO TASTE
In a shallow bowl, beat together the egg, milk, salt, pepper, green onions and cilantro. Dip slices of bread into egg mix allowing the bread to soak up the eggy goodness. Melt a pat of butter or a touch of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the soaked slices of bread and fry, flipping once, 2-3 minutes per side or until deeply golden brown and crispy. Enjoy warm with sriracha to taste.
Please enjoy this ridiculous collection of illustrations from the Doctor Who Cookbook
Illustrations by Gail Bennett, 1985. I’m gonna do my favourites first cause THERE’S A LOT. Like, a good 80 ridiculous drawings of Doctors 1-6 and companions and enemies and whatnot.
And uhh… Probably… content warning for cannibalism? And a lot of disturbing things if you stop to think about it??
I had to start with this one cause SIX IS LITERALLY COOKING SOUP IN A CYBERMAN HEAD!!
Click the “Read More”. Seriously. Click it. It’s… special.
Wow, quite a few of them. Gail Bennett has an interesting sense of humor.
A man admittedly followed and killed an innocent teenager, and was declared not guilty.
States are passing laws allowing guns in public schools.
Women are losing their reproductive rights at an increasingly alarming rate.
Riots are tearing through the streets in cities all over the world.
College tuition keeps rising, sending a generation into debt as soon as they are entering the adult world.
Education funds keep getting slashed.
Privacy no longer exists.
Corporations now have the same rights as people, and the funds to actually protect them.
Through loopholes, many U.S. Corporations pay a lower tax rate than middle class families.
States are now passing more voter ID laws and similar laws that only affect the lower class.
The corporate giant, Monsanto, has pretty much purchased and bribed its way into every grocery product on the shelf, resulting in food becoming less and less like, well, food. There are reasons Cancer rates are getting worse.
Likewise, Monsanto is making sure small American farmers are ran out of business. Also, their constant pesticide use is killing bees and other insects, causing dire environmental issues.
The mass media is more concerned with pop culture and trends, than the real issues the world is facing.
Human population is ever growing, and at rapid rates. It can’t just continue this way.
We have put so much trash in giant landfills all over our world and in our oceans. We are killing our planet.
By planet you mean we are killing ourselves.
Can we also pay attention to the fact that there aren’t just political problems going on???
I mean, seriously, I have been trying to tell everyone, BUT NO ONE IS EVEN REBLOGGING THE ARTICLES THAT COULD SAVE A LIFE
While all this is happening, the Pacific Ocean is being contaminated by not just trash, but Radiation.
There was a leak in the Fukushima power plant that has now poisoned the entire Pacific Ocean.
Some think that oh, maybe it will go away with time. Sure, it will, in about 16 million years. Yes, you read that right. Due to the long half life of iodine-129, the whole ecosystem of the Pacific Coast will be contaminated pretty much forever.
Here is the radiation levels in the ocean.
Everyone needs to wake up.
The government needs to be set straight. They were hiding this information so that people don’t panic. Well, now everyone’s gonna die and not know why.
Shit is going down, and we need to make sure EVERYONE knows EVERYTHING that is happening in this place we call home.
Holy fucking shit
fukushima is one of the scariest things going on and it’s literally getting less attention than that real houswives couple who are going to prison.
whoa whoa whoa not cool guys read pls
Wow, wow, I can see how fast ignorance gets reblogged around here. Nice way to conflate an already questionable article with even more questionable graphs and sources.
The initial list, a bit of truly scary things mixed in with questionably scary things. Human overpopulation? Yes, truly scary. Cancer rates linked to Monsanto? Eh, not so conclusive. Long term studies are needed. Cancer rates are increasing for a variety of reasons, food is a possible one of many.
But Iodine 129? Mostly false. Iodine 129 is naturally present and at the levels from Fukushima, not really bothersome. Here’s a study of Iodine 129 levels from Japanese waters:http://geolog.egu.eu/2013/07/17/following-fukushima-what-happened-to-the-iodine-isotopes/
and an abstract from a medical article: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23461388
The more radioactive chemicals like Cesium 134 and Cesium 137 are more worrisome, but again, not at high enough concentrations to be worried about yet. Here’s an article on that:http://www.livescience.com/43631-fukushima-radiation-ocean-arrives-west-coast.html
Now, long term consequences, who knows? Depends on how soon the power plant at Fukushima gets the leaks fixed and what kind of concentration of radioactive particles get spread around. It’s hard to tell because ocean currents can spread particles around to unexpected places. They’re a lot less straightfoward than tsunami paths, especially since most of the radiation leaked after the tsunami wreaked havoc on the power plant, not while the tsunami was happening.
And stop using the Tsunami WAVE HEIGHT map as an indicator of radiation. Here’s a link to the NOAA website talking about WAVE HEIGHT, not radiation: http://www.noaa.gov/features/03_protecting/japantsunami_oneyearlater.html
I got your backs, guys.
2. (I couldn’t track down the actual recipe for the second picture, so I’m just going to assume it’s Chocolate Coffee.)
3. Again, I couldn’t track this one down, but I think it’s an ice cream cake. Here’s ten different recipes for ice cream cakes in exchange for not finding that particular one.
6. This cake is supposedly from a restaurant or high-end bakery, but I wasn’t able to find the source or recipe for it. Sorry!
7. I know what these are! York Peppermint Patty Brownies!
8. yeah i’m pretty sure this is just a disassembled oreo smore thing it’s sort of self-explanatory
9. *shifty eyes* I couldn’t find this one either but here make this instead
10. My only guess for these is homemade ding dongs.
You are the greatest of human beings.
Wooh, chocolate! And now with recipes!
I am a black student at Mount Holyoke College, the first of the seven sister schools, which was started because no other American colleges accepted women. Mount Holyoke women are taught to be bold,…
PLEASE READ AND SPREAD
This got under my skin. This is what white privilege looks like, for those of you who can’t see it. BMC, there’s nothing keeping this from being a story at our school. Nothing.
Erk, rent-a-cops seem to have a higher incidence of treating people badly. And that’s saying something when cops are allowed to shoot and kill because they “thought” the suspect had a gun/ was aggressive. The campus cops just made a bad situation worse by assuming way too much and yeah, the statement, “Just stay calm,” is probably the worst thing to say to an increasingly hysterical woman. No matter the supposed initial crime, the way it was handled subsequently is just awful.
New Zealand has giant Carnivorous Land Snails!
Some of them have a shell up to 9 cm across and they have a giant, disgusting mouth for cramming worms into!
They’re SO inspiring.
Nothing compared to the venomous cone snails!
They stab fish with their radula and swallow the whole thing down.
