“This is really good news!!!!” a friend screamed over text message with this link this afternoon. This is really good news. Yesterday, Houston held a parade to celebrate the fact that the Houston Astros won the World Series, but they ended up accomplishing something great themselves.


Scream in satisfaction as thousands of individuals collaborate in flinging a hat all the way to the top of the exterior of a parking structure, tier by tier; celebrate the harmony of baseball fans, the caring nature of the hominid species, and maybe even the full expression of freedom because this happened in America, fuck yeah.

The custom is to “h/t” the source, but I can’t hat-tip because Houston just fucking hat-tipped everyone. Thank you to Josh Pherigo for this footage.

Are you good with money? Please tell me your money saving tricks. I’m living paycheck to paycheck. I’m so discouraged because I’m like “I did not go to college for a million years to be working poor.” I have always had difficulty managing money. I dream of being debt free, but even trying to get a $1000 emergency fund seems out of reach right now.
