I mean, come on. The best holiday season and businesses don’t even care enough about it to spell check the items they’re gonna sell. Fuck this shit.

Typical examples of what we do to the English language when we are talking to, or about cute animals:

"How bad being!!! All she does all day is bad be!”

"NO! THEY’RE LITTLE SWIMMING"

"He thinks he can have a nose everywhere like he’s even allowed a"

"He’s bein all kitty mad cause his head is a animal one and don’t even know what things are"

image

It’s simple, really!

1) “That animal of some sort is doing something. Or nothing.”

2) “There is an animal in some water.”

3) “That animal has a nose.”

4) “Cats exist.”

California adopts 'yes means yes' sex-assault rule

Gov. Jerry Brown announced Sunday that he has signed a bill that makes California the first in the nation to define when “yes means yes” and adopt requirements for colleges to follow when investigating sexual assault reports.

State lawmakers last month approved SB967 by Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, as states and universities across the U.S. are under pressure to change how they handle rape allegations. Campus sexual assault victims and women’s advocacy groups delivered petitions to Brown’s office on Sept. 16 urging him to sign the bill.

De Leon has said the legislation will begin a paradigm shift in how college campuses in California prevent and investigate sexual assaults. Rather than using the refrain “no means no,” the definition of consent under the bill requires “an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity.”

"Every student deserves a learning environment that is safe and healthy," De Leon said in a statement Sunday night. "The State of California will not allow schools to sweep rape cases under the rug. We’ve shifted the conversation regarding sexual assault to one of prevention, justice, and healing."

The legislation says silence or lack of resistance does not constitute consent. Under the bill, someone who is drunk, drugged, unconscious or asleep cannot grant consent.

Notes to self:

- Stop worrying so much and start doing things more.

- No more goddamn bootstraps - you are not lazy and you do not need to “stop being lazy”, you just need to stop the anxious defeatism that makes you feel like there’s no point to doing things in the first place.

- If you’ve got no energy, eat something and take a nap. Don’t postpone that either.

- Eating at all is much more important than eating “right”.

- Too sad to do anything? Turn on some music. Everything can be worked through with a decent soundtrack.

- Cleaning things up is not a punishment for being a slob, it’s a therapeutic act of taking control over your living space.

- If you’re not under contract, your time belongs to you and you don’t have to schedule your day around anybody else’s whims.

- Stop listening to your mother if she tries to convince you otherwise on any of these points.

DARKEYE VOLUME 1: WILD DOG CITY is now available for purchase!!

As far as Mhumhi knows, the city has always been ruled by painted dogs, hulker monsters are evil, and nobody will ever run out of food.
But after his adoptive mother disappears, Mhumhi, an orphaned painted dog, realizes that underneath the city streets lie deep, dark secrets. Like the fact that hulker children speak like dogs. Or like the fact that there might not be enough meat for everyone anymore. Or like the fact that there are monsters in the sewers, monsters that laugh and have sharp teeth…
Ultimately, Mhumhi finds himself responsible for two orphaned hulker children, and faces a choice: should he abandon them and go back into the sunlight, or should he finish what his mother started?

READ A SAMPLE
PRINT COPIES: Paperback - Hardcover
EBOOK COPIES: Smashwords - Amazon - B&N - iBooks

"Don’t take ~chemicals~ like prozac, I heard you can get the same effect by eating 19 oranges a day, that’s only 570 oranges a month!!!"

"Yeah I understand depression completely stops you from doing everyday tasks AND that you then feel guilty about that… But you have to just power through it and get on with things as normal!"

WHY ARE NONE OF YOU FUCKERS FLIPPING SHIT?!?

NASA HAS DECLARED PLUTO A PLANET AGAIN

IT HAS MOONS!!!!! IT HAS MOONS!!!!!!!

WHAT. WHAT! PLUTO YOU FUCKING DID IT!

VIVA LA PLUTO, YOU DID IT!!!

After many, many years, the end has finally come, and I can reveal the truth of my Pro-Pluto stance.

One again the planety mnemonic is My Very Existence May Justify Some Unsettling New Philosophy

Nnnnno they haven’t? And also, it’s not up to NASA, it’s up to the IAU, who are still very much Pluto-is-a-dwarf-planet. The whole “omg Pluto is a planet again!” thing comes from a debate where the popular vote claimed that they still supported Pluto as a planet. Info here.

This whole thing continues to remind me of folks throwing hissy fits because it turns out most if not all dromaeosaurids and probably therapods in general had feathers.

do you ever think about how little Michelangelo cared

All right, everyone, grab a chair and sit back because I’m going to share with you what I learned about Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel in my Art History Class.
The man NEVER wanted to paint the damn thing. But the pope at the time “forced him to” According to my teacher. Michelangelo hated this man, I MEAN REALLY HATED HIM. So did a majority of people. The pope’s nickname translated literally means “Terrible pope”.
And the working conditions were awful. He had to work on his back with all that paint, which is filled with some toxic shit that gave Michelangelo a limp for the rest of his life. (Also, our teacher made us get on our backs and try drawing with both hands JUST to prove how bad and uncomfortable it is.)
At the time, the ceiling was so high, you could barely see it. You need binoculars to get a good look at what’s up there, by the time people could see the paintings, there was a lot of weird symbolism that Michelangelo hid up there.

This one? The creation of the sun and moon? God is mooning you. And the pope and all others after him prayed under that without knowing.

This one? At the time, dissecting was sacrilegious and everyone found out how behind God was what looked like half a brain. blah blah, science, science, that pissed everyone off.
And also, ALLLLLLL the men and women in the Sistine Chapel are all on fucking steroids. My teacher described the women’s bodies as "Men bodies with boobs slapped on."
And then there is this:

Now this is the back wall. Michelangelo actually wanted to paint this one after he finished the ceiling. (and there was a different pope too, I believe.) However, originally, EVERYONE in that painting was naked. And they didn’t like it. Adam and Eve naked? That’s cool. But Jesus? Now you crossed the line. So the pope at the time hired someone else to censor it and give the important figures clothes. He worked on it for 6 or 9 months before he died.
And then the symbolism in this one is great. Somewhere in the right, there are homosexuals in heaven. (No matter what, the Vatican will say “Those straight men are happy” I’ll get to that in a second), Michelangelo painted himself near Jesus, and the terrible pope is in hell with a snake biting his balls.
And if you were to point ANY of this out to the Vatican, they will deny all of it and claim Michelangelo was a catholic hero. In fact, when they discovered the symbolism around the 60s or 70s, the guy who told the Vatican was kicked out of the Vatican for life.
TL;DR: Michelangelo hated the pope and made the best “fuck you” of all time.
