This is called shape memory. It’s made from an alloy of titanium and nickel (I believe it’s called nitinol). It has the ability to “remember” the shape it’s taken.
When cold you can bend it whatever which way, but once you heat it (or in this case put it in what I presume is hot water) it will take the original shape.
“I’m sorry. This is the first time I’ve hired a maid.”
The only woman on this movie whom I saw fit to raise a child, and she was the only one who couldn’t.
I absolutely loved her character.

Through their writings, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald—the young, glamorous literary couple du jour—defined the Jazz Age as we know it. Scott declared his Southern belle wife, whom he married in 1920, “the first American flapper.” The inspiration for Daisy Buchanan in “The Great Gatsby,” Zelda was known for her wild antics, like drunkenly jumping, fully clothed, into the fountain at New York’s Plaza Hotel. Even as a kid, she was always creating a scene: She stole a car when she was 8; she went swimming in a flesh-colored bathing suit in her teens….
But Zelda, as fearless and trail-blazing as she was, can’t even embody the flapper movement fully. For one, it was not all white women, as NYU’s Modern America reports: “For the time being, the bob and the entire Flapper wardrobe, united blacks and whites under a common hip-culture.” Secondly, the flapper’s rebellion against Victorian sexual mores didn’t start among the high-society debutantes, but in “working-class neighborhoods and radical circles in the early 1900s before it spread to middle-class youth and college campuses.”

I’ve seen so many Mother’s Day gif sets. But I wanted to make a gifset dedicated to the girl who didn’t choose to become a mother, but had to. Nani. She was the best mother she could be to Lilo, and the best sister too.
She didn’t just lose her mother and father, with all the things she was doing wrong, she felt like she was losing her sister too.Nani, hardly gets recognition, and throughout the entire film she did everything she could and it seemed like the odds were against her. So, appreciation for Nani, as she’s one of the strongest, most realistic & realistic looking Disney character ever.
Wow okay the reason my generation is selfish is because we have to be.
Let me break it down for you:
- 60% of US college students are borrowing money to cover schooling costs
- The average college graduate owes $24,301 in student loans but this changes depending on the type of institution you attend:
- Average debt of a student attending a 4-year public institute: $7,960
- Average debt of a student attending a private institute: $17,040
- Average debt of a student attention a for-profit institute: $31,190
- The average annual salary of a person with a bachelor’s degree is $43,143
- The average cost of living for a single person age 25 and under in the U.S. in 2011 is $23,705 (includes rent, utilities, food, cleaning supplies, trasportation, personal hygene products, and healthcare; excludes alcohol, entertainment costs, food away from home, and clothes).
- 53% of college graduates are either unemployed or underemployed
So, over half of college grads are either a) working minimum wage jobs (the federal minimum wage is currently $7.25/hour, which is an annual income of roughly $15,080 if working a standard 40-hour week), or b) aren’t even employed.
On those kinds of wages, with this kind of debt, half of us can’t afford to move out of our parents’ houses.
So don’t act fucking surprised that we’re still living with our parents when we’re 30, or that we aren’t getting married or having kids or buying houses and cars.
We were told that going to college would make our lives more comfortable and better and we’d get a good job doing something we enjoyed. We didn’t realize that trying to better our lives would actually make it fucking worse.
We’re not being selfish. We’re surviving.
