George Bush doing the ice bucket challenge thing is really unsettling to me because it’s all over my dashboard right now and I truly don’t understand why people on this website now seem to think of him as America’s goofy uncle that does bad paintings you do remember who he is right?

Now in the news: Guy that popularized and supported waterboarding as an interrogation technique is doing ASL ice water bucket challenge.

Next up: The concept of irony is retiring, says “I just can’t deal with this shit anymore.”

Speedball becomes Penance.

Always thought that was the ninetiest thing ever, too bad it happened long after the nineties.

See the lions? None of them have manes. They’re lesbian lion parents. No one can convince me otherwise.

comics exaggerating and over sensitizing the “social justice warriors” on this website are inaccurate and unrealistic and the orca agrees

Shall I continue…?

I am so done with a lot of humanity

So, lots of groups have a right to be heterogenous, like loud sports fans and less loud ones and those that prefer sitting at home and watching on the tv over the stadium, and those that don’t, or anime fans, or car fans, or…or…or…

But people that bring up social justice issues on tumblr have to be homogenously pure and friendly and kind, otherwise any attempts at bringing social justice topics up is wrong and deserves derision.

I got that about right?

The Fuck is going on in the second picture?!

Looks like some people used a popular tourist spot to make their protest more visible, and the tourists didn’t care.

Umm… two problems with this little challenge. First being that it’s insanely difficult for me to think of one thing to name that I like about myself. The second being that I only have 9 followers, you being one of them.

Okay, so lemme think about this…

1. I have a good sense of humour…. wait no, you and Zemo have better sense of humour. Lemme try again

1. I have a full thick head of hair… which is bothersome at times, especially for my unfortunate stylist. Sigh. Trying again.

1. I am good at drawi….uhm… no, not good enough to like that. Restarting!

1. I can bake a damned nice loaf of bread… but then again anyone can if they follow the recipe. Urgh… this is so haaard. Okay, think I can start now.

1-5. I try.

Drawing, Eeyore, you can draw.

  1. I’m very mild mannered and laid back person, and one has to put actual effort into making me angry at them. I simply don’t have any temper to speak of.
  2. At the off chance that you actually do manage to make me upset, rest assured that it won’t last. I don’t hold grudges, and can’t stay angry for long.
  3. I’m awfully emotional and not the slightest bit ashamed of it. In fact, I think it makes it so much easier for me to empathise with others. I’ve been told I make a great mediator.
  4. Being kind to others feels wonderful, which is why I do it as much as I can.
  5. I also like to believe I’m pretty humble. Case in point: Most of the time writing this post was spent worrying that I may have painted myself in too a positive light.

Wow, this was difficult - but thanks so much for the ask!

6. Echinoderms can regrow parts of their central nervous system and walk on tiny legs they move by pressuring water into them.

Iggy Azalea and spilled fries

Can we be critical about Iggy Azalea without bashing her looks? It’s not like she hasn’t got enough flaws to pick and choose without going for the low brow.

Gentle reminder that ALS, of the “ice bucket challenge” fame, also goes by the name of MND (motor neuron disease) in Britain, SLA in France, etc. You can click through to your language on the wikipedia article to find the correct abreviation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amyotrophic_lateral_sclerosis

If you want to participate in the challenge, it is almost certain that there is a national organisation for the awareness of the disease in your country, they’re just using another name.

Link to the NYT article on the autopsy

what the fuck man

So basically, that cop fully intended to murder a black person that day. I hear that the Justice Department or FBI is investigating whether or not Michael Brown’s civil rights were violated and I so, so, SO hope they were because that makes his murder a FEDERAL CRIME and that folks, is a whole different ball game. I also hope that they can slap him with a hate crime charge, if they can establish that the cop murdered Brown because he was black.

Probably going to sound like an ass, but the way I have been reading the recent revelations is that the cop simply panicked and started shooting away. The entry wound on the head would have come from Brown keeling over from being hit several times and Wilson continuing to shoot.

Of course, Wilson should never have pulled the trigger to begin with, so it doesn’t excuse what he did. I just don’t see the rationale for calling this an execution.
