Do you know what Extra Life is?

It’s a fun thing. A fun thing that helps kids.
Extra Life is a 24 hr long game-playing marathon that raises money for Children’s National. It goes directly to helping sick kids not be sick anymore, and to make their sick-time less sucky.
Every year, my boyfriend participates, and also live-streams his gaming marathon.  I know we’re all poor, but if anyone feels like they can donate even a dollar or 2, you can do that here. He get’s no benefit for doing this; it’s all for the kids.
 
You heard me.
Do it for the kids.

When a local government’s very existence depends on its citizens breaking the law — when fines from ordinance violations are written into city budgets for the upcoming year as a primary or even the main expected source of revenue — the relationship between the government and the governed is not one of public officials serving their constituents, but of preying off of them. When the primary mission of a police department isn’t to protect citizens but to extract money from them, and when the cops themselves don’t look like, live near or have much in common with the people from whom they’re extracting that money, you get cops who start to see the people they’re supposed to be serving not as citizens with rights, but as potential sources of revenue, as lawbreakers to be caught. The residents of these towns then see cops not as public servants drawn from their own community to enforce the laws and keep the peace, but as outsiders brought in to harass them, whose salaries are drawn from that harassment. The same goes for the judges and prosecutors, who also rarely live in the towns that employ them.

I like the coach, putting his hands on his knees like, “Welp, that wasn’t it.”

i was almost like “oh man that sucks” and then her leg popped and i fucking lost it

That leg is killing me

THE LEG KILLED ME

falling with style

i reblogged this a million times and i still dont know what it’s funnier: the leg or the coach

the fact that the coach is her father makes this funnier

I’ve always assumed that history is fully as speculative a discipline as writing science fiction. Our narrative of history changes as we go along, and hundred years from now, the deep past—assuming that technology continues to emerge at the same rate—the deep human past that those people will be able to see will be quite unrecognizable to us.

a discussion on sexual orientation

  1. me: *explaining various sexual orientations to a classmate*
  2. classmate: wait, what's polyamory?
  3. me: well, it's when someone has more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved.
  4. professor: *overhears from front of class*
  5. professor: that is d i s g u s t i n g
  6. me: *defensively* um, actually, no it's--
  7. professor: how DARE they put a greek prefix on a latin root like that?! What right do they have to decimate my beautiful antiquated languages?!?! GREEK AND LATIN DO NOT FRATERNIZE THIS IS LIKE THAT STUPID ROMANTIC SUBPLOT BETWEEN THAT DWARF AND THAT ELF IN THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!
  8. me: ....
  9. me: ....
  10. me: ....
  11. professor: it should be polyerosy

Image description: On Saturday, the Navy christened a new research ship the “Sally Ride” after the first U.S. woman and youngest person in space. It is the fifth current ship named for an astronaut. 
Photo from the U.S. Navy

the person doing the christening is dr. tam o’shaughnessy, ride’s partner of 27 yrs. sally ride was not just the first woman and youngest person in space: she was also the first lesbian in space - likely, the first lgbtq person in space.

I know we shared this before but finding out that this ship was christened by Dr. Tam O’Shaughnessy was something that required re-sharing.
