Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.

People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings.

I mean this is cute and all, but there are already products out there that do this (cups, straws, and coasters) which already test for this. Also according to a study done in 2005 by the U.S. Department of Justice “DFSA (drug-facilitated sexual assault) is more of a problem due to the subject’s own drug use, rather than surreptitious drugging by the perpetrator.” (https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/grants/212000.pdf p. 9). And of course, women are always taught to always watch their drinks, go out in groups and watch out for each other. All this though is a bandaid, it ignores other problems with rape culture and reinforces stereotypes about how rape happens. What the study (and those that think this nail polish will stop rape) doesn’t consider though are victims who are under the influence of alcohol (for example the Steubenville Rape Case), or those who are raped by acquaintances (friends, community members, boyfriends/girlfriends). I don’t think there is a product out there that can prevent rape, sexual harassment or assault, other than people respecting each other and educating people on what is consensual sex.

Police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest over the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said on Sunday.
Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing global attention to race relations in the United States.
Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the teen had struggled with the officer. Witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.
The discrepancy has revived calls for officers across the county to be outfitted with body cameras to help capture an accurate record of police-involved incidents.

One of the things that helped me the most with Captain Jack was a book by Bernard Moitessier, and it’s where I found the last line for the first Pirates movie. The writers were stumped and they’d say, “Well, what about this?” And nothing seemed to click. I was reading this Moitessier book on sailing the Earth, and he had written about how the ultimate for a sailor was the horizon, which you never get to, which is why it keeps pushing you forward. I thought, That’s it! That’s it! So I went to them and said, “I’ve got a line for you: ‘Bring me that horizon.’” And they looked at it and went, “Nah, that’s not it.” But about 45 minutes later, they came to me and went, “That’s the line.”

The automatic criminalization of black and brown bodies

The only problem I have is the blatant disregard to basic trigger disciplne

It may also make somewhat of a difference that the black kids have these stern, hardened looks on their faces and the white kids are smiling and standing behind a Christmas tree???Also, why constant references to people’s bodies?I see your kind doing that literally all the time and I don’t see the value in it.

wow “your kind”

yeah I’m more bothered by the disregard for safety in both pictures (fingers on the trigger and pointed in unsafe directions, ex at the person next to you face)

but imagine if we had tiny little dragons

the size of puppies

and they would go wherever we went sitting on our shoulders and hissing at everyone who tried to touch you because you’re their most special thing in the universe and they are so tiny it’s ridiculously cute

the fact that this post has more notes than i ever expected makes me really glad
