What better way to celebrate the impeachment you're too scared to testify at than by lashing out at a teenage climate activist.


While speaking about Greta Thunberg at the Davos World Economic Forum, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said that "she's in no position to give economic advice until she goes to college and comes out with an economic degree."

He also added this condescending ditty:

"Is she the chief economist? Who is she, I'm confused."

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quickly responded on Twitter, defending the teenage climate change activist.

Many other people on Twitter also came to Greta's side.



Grown men, especially those who run powerful branches of government, shouldn't get their kicks making fun of high schoolers.



Mnuchin is hardly a paragon of virtue anyway.


Before long, Thunberg herself had responded to the Treasury Secretary's comments, saying:

"It doesn't take a college degree in economics to realise that our remaining 1,5° carbon budget and ongoing fossil fuel subsidies and investments don't add up."

Thunberg is probably happy to know she has many allies even here in America.


This should go without saying...but bullying young women just trying to make a better world doesn't make you a good person.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
