Idk. I have difficulty with full gallons of milk and orange juice. This could be really great for people with dyspraxia or other disabilities that cause weak motor skills.

A. Full gal of anything is just asking for me to make a mess, really. I haveta pour with two hands and then who is holding the cup?

my partner has awful hand tremors if she has to hold anything tightly for more than a few seconds so this would be excellent. She could pour her own drinks (she still couldn’t fill them up too much, shaking might spill) and yeah!

I have an inconveniently intermittent tremor so it is like…. Oh you THOUGHT you were holding that just fine… Lol.
Stuff also just drops from my hand if I am not paying attention to it. Plates and cups tip forward until I have a mess. Always have done too. My mom was always mad at me like I was intentionally doing it. But damn I still spill stuff. I usually eat and drink out if heavy things just so I can have two hands on what I am pouring. And wandering around leads to drooping and dropping inevitably unless I am consciously thinking about keeping it level.

Plus, this is great for small children who can’t hold a huge gallon but want to get their own milk/orange juice.I swear, sometimes the people making judgments about shit are so short-sighted. I DON’T SEE ANY USE FOR THIS SO IT MUST BE USELESS.Fuck that.

Ableism: When you are so used to having a world that works for your level of ability and skills and resources that assistive devices look like “laziness” to you. Because you don’t ever have to think about what it would be like if suddenly your abilities didn’t match the way the world has been designed. 
And fuck this laziness bullshit. Fuck the idea that if you do something to make a menial task easier, quicker, less messy - even a task that you COULD do another, more labor intensive way - that it’s laziness. Assholes, humanity is the dominant form of life on this planet exactly because of this.
Laziness, and by laziness, I mean figuring out ways to do things with the least amount of time and labor put into it while still getting the same or better result - is OUR FUCKING GENIUS AS A SPECIES. It’s why you even have fucking orange juice in a fucking jug, asshole OP who made this picture. It’s why you even have fucking Tumblr on the fucking internet or fucking photography. Because lazy motherfuckers have been figuring out how to use less work and less resources to get the same/better results for tasks they do for centuries. So write them thank you notes, don’t show your ass. Fucker

I have tendonitis in my wrists - RSI.
And I sometimes have trouble holding anything heavier than a liter. 

Fun fact: “fluid ounces” are called that because they were originally calibrated to the volume of an ounce of water. The current definition of a gallon is 128 fluid ounces of liquid… which means a gallon of water weighs in the neighborhood of eight pounds.
I don’t know the specific gravity of orange juice, but I don’t think it gets lighter when you replace some of that liquid water with solid pulp.
In short: this stuff is heavy.
Also, use as assistive technology aside, this looks like it was designed for a continental breakfast or other commercial breakfast nook type set up to me… the sort of place where you’d want as many people as possible to be able to pour their drinks as quickly as possible with as little mess as possible. Nobody says that a Minute Maid OJ dispenser is “lazy”, even though it takes less work.

Abandoned 123 year old school

For sale: totally not haunted, we promise. Like we pinky swear. No wailing child ghosts. No endless walls of text about the coming of the end times appearing on chalk boards when you turn your back. No creepy singing. Totally cool.

I’d really appreciate people sharing this around - this little girl, and her parents, need your help.
