Trying to get basic banking services to cash Social Security and disability checks was a persistent source of anxiety for Patricia Geary, A 65-year-old Philadelphia resident. She receives her payments in paper form, but since she didn’t have a checking account, she had trouble figuring out how to convert them into usable form.
“It was so stressful,” she told me. “It put me in such a fragile and depressive state that I had to seek out professional help at times.”
Commercial banks have too many hidden fees and minimum balances that are too high to help her. The check-cashing places she relied on require large fees for her to get cash and even more fees to convert some of that cash into money orders to pay bills. Keeping her money entirely in cash made it hard to budget well and left her vulnerable to theft.

I’d rather teen girls reading nothing but terribly written fanfics about their favorite OTPs that express healthy and emotionally-sound romantic relationships than “great literature” that teaches them they are prizes to be won or creatures to be controlled or destroyed.
Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone.
look me in the eye and tell me that’s not a fucking dragon
And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol.
And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result.
What? Just WHAT??
The second one looks like Fawkes omg dumbledore never mentioned his Phoenix survives on animal bones
The distinct “death panel” knowledge came from within. They built that!
here is where i fell in love with kaidan.
Do you think Morrigan ever turns into a bear or a giant spider at camp just to fuck with people?
For instance, Alistair wakes up to a snarling bear right on top of him in the middle of his tent and nearly soils his smalls trying to scramble away…
She would never NOT do this. To the point that Alistair just rolls his eyes and mutters, “Get off me, you despicable wench.”
And then, once it’s a real bear?
