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.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
