Whatever your job is, if you've been doing it for awhile, you've probably heard it all. As soon as you say whatever it is, someone will comment on it like they know all about your life. Well, you don't. Being a blogger contains multitudes, okay?

Designer Louie Mantia asked his followers what people most often misunderstood about their jobs, and there are a lot of people who are incredibly frustrated with the general public.

There are the overworked and underpaid college faculty:

Folks whose job it is to criticize popular culture—key word is job. They aren't just complaining:

Journalists have been getting a really bad reputation the last few years, as we all know, and the truth is they're mostly not all that elite:

Um, bloggers:

Just because someone works for Netflix doesn't mean they can control Netflix::

Reverends don't have six days off a week, did you know?

Just because someone's work involves a computer doesn't mean the computer is doing the work:

Libraries are all stocked up on The Da Vinci Code, thanks:

Stop complaining about video games taking so long to come out (which I guess is something people who play video games do):

Just because it sounds awesome doesn't mean it's not a real gig, with work involved:

Studying religion and being religious may relate, but they're not synonymous:

The Earth is what's going to kill us, according to this scientist:

Don't ask your friends who do graphic design to draw you:

Tip. TIP.

This is honestly something I hope everyone knows:

But this I cannot accept:

If digging up old bones isn't super cool, there's no longer any point to blogging my way through archeology school.

RecircHumor22 Images That'll Give You Bad Luck Just By Looking At Them

I grew up in a marginally superstitious family who brought some beliefs and hocus-pocus superstitions from the old country. I couldn't make too much noise late at night for fear of attracting a "jinn." I couldn't point at cemeteries or stare into a mirror for too long or my face would become deformed, and heaven help me if I was ever mean to or disobeyed my parents or grandparents, because then I'd be looking at a cursed life that would ruin me until the day that I died.

But the idea of "back luck" or stepping on cracks, walking under ladders, or stealing a black cat's macchiato isn't something that my family really bought into. Sure, we believed in supernatural stuff and the idea that karma gets back around to mess with you or your kids, but "bad luck"? 

No honey, it isn't luck that's ruining your life, it's an unseen species of metaphysical monsters that exist in a different plane we know little about—but they are mentioned in the Quran, so be careful!

There are phenomena so unfortunate that simply looking at images of them will cause the same bad luck to befall you. So on this Friday the 13th, gaze upon these pictures with extreme caution.
