    The alt right does not really exist, it is a bunch of different ideologies and when people confuse Conservatives with the alt right/Faschists they are making a big mistake

    1. I'm not 13 even though I may look like it
    2. Just bc I'm quiet in class it doesn't mean I'm not friendly
    3. Not all 1D fans are 12 years old
    4. My name isn't "Georgina" it can't be that hard to pronounce my name right
    5. Just because I can speak Cantonese it doesn't mean I can read/write it

    On that note, I may as well clear up the misconception that the towers fell from the steel beams "melting".

    They didn't, they got really hot and they started sagging. Under high temperatures, steel's strength is massively reduced and that's partly responsible for the collapse. Also jet fuel wasn't the only thing burning.
    Indeed, that's not why the original saying came about.

    Melted pools of steel were found.
    I believe the explanation given for this was jet fuel.

    Losing weight in the form of fat isn't some magical combination of factors, eating the right 'macros' in the right order, obsessively using fitness apps, eating almonds whilst spinning on your head three times...

    Eat less that you need to stay a stable weight. Chuck some exercise in too. Don't be extreme.
    Also, being fat isn't determined by your genes.
