I might need to go watch this now. I think I have a copy hanging around.
These are all going into my daily vocabulary right the fuck now.
I fucking love military acronyms. They are the best.
I know there are a bunch of posts about how to get gender neutral pronouns (they, their) on Facebook, but it always involves using developer tools which some people are not always comfortable with so I was thinking and did this thing real quick to turn it into 3 steps for convenience and the less tech savvy :)
1. Click and drag this link into your bookmarks bar. (You might need to delete the “denied:” part at the beginning of the URL (without quotes).
2. Click this link to go to the Facebook Mobile edit gender page.
3. Click the new link you just dragged into the bookmarks bar.
And you’re done.. Facebook will only ever refer to you by they/their now.
Thanks to whoever figured this trick out first the original way!
GOT MY BUMPER STICKERS
This is so incredibly ignorant that it’s making my head hurt. When people say, “Guns don’t kill people,” they are not saying, “A gun and bullets can’t be used to kill someone,” and you know it. A gun, by itself, cannot kill someone. It doesn’t matter what side of the the debate you’re on. A gun, by itself, cannot kill someone. The problem has always, always been people. If you put the blame on an inanimate object, you are saying that people don’t need to take responsibility for their actions.
I hate to repeat a tired cliche, but if you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns. Or people will find other ways of murdering each other. This shouldn’t even be a political argument, it’s not about our Second Amendment rights; it’s about being able to defend yourself. Let’s say gun control is fully instated, or it’s made illegal to own a gun. One day, you’re walking home, and someone with a gun pulls you into an alley, threatening your life for whatever it is they want. If you point at them and say, “Hey, having that gun is illegal!” do you think they’ll apologize profusely, turn themselves in, and allow you to go on your merry way?
However, if any average person on the street has a gun, do you think muggers and thieves (or even an ill-intentioned average Joe) are going to be more motivated to make a target of someone? Probably not, since there’s a high chance that target will be well armed (like Chicago vs. Houston, if you look at the first article below).
I’m sorry to turn this into a rant, I don’t do this (very) often. Just read the first paragraph, that’s really all I meant to say.
Someone has completely missed the point.
Is that you, Steve Carlsburg?
Oh yes, because owning a gun is your “duty as an american”, isn’t it?
United States, the greatest gun producer.
"Buy a pink rifle to your daughter, teach kids how guns are awesome and cool. Give guns TO CHILDREN." But when they murder each other, blame video games or Marlin Manson. Not the whole gun propaganda nor the president sending more soldiers to kill muslims.
Buy a car, win a gun! Open a bank account in our bank and win a gun! Buy our guns! Guns are cool! Guns are awesome! Having a gun means power! Owning guns will solve crime!
Cut the bullcrap about your freaking guns I’m sick of USA and its freaking guns everywhere and you telling me that all this “gun is for protection we have to have it”.
IT JUST KEEPS HAPPENING
It’s it’s a fact! Cities and states that allow a gun on a person are noticeably lower in murder. Having guns is about protection. No, we are not EVER going to give guns to children. We are not going to tell that that having guns are cool, like it’s a toy. We are going to tell them that it’s a dangerous weapon and can kill somebody, even you, if not handled correctly. We can teach them that they can be used for protection if they’re desperate enough. Wether our not they learn how to use it is the parents choice, not yours. I learned how to use a gun by the time I was 11, and I turned out fine. Tons of other people I know also learned how to use a gun at a young age, but they are crazy maniacs. They are normal people that would only use a gun if needed.
Get this through your thick skull:
GUNS ARE NOT THE PROBLEM. PEOPLE ARE THE PROBLEM.
I AM LAUGHING SO HARD
I CANT BREATHE. ITS TOO GREAT.
I SAW THIS POST 20 MINUTES AGO AND IT WAS ONLY HALF AS LONG AS IT IS NOW HOLY CRAP
I have read this thread 3 times and I just keep bouncing back and forth between hysterical laughter and total embarrassment for those that have no idea what those stickers are about.
The writers have said before that Tony and Steve have one of the strongest relationships in the Marvel universe.
The only reason it’s prob. not canon is because you can’t have two of the biggest superheroes being gay, that would send the “wrong message.”
Annabeth pressed her lips to Percy’s ear. “I love you.”
She wasn’t sure he could hear her—but if they died, she wanted those to be her last words.

The brunette part is really important.
Fun fact, our hair color reveals our place in pansexual society. Blondes are our record keepers. The great librarians, they collect, analyze, store, and distribute information to the rest of us. They are blonde because they reflect the light of knowledge. Those with Black Hair are our inventors. They investigate, produce, and teach new technologies so that we may thrive in future times. Their hair is black because of their frequent dives into the void of the unknown. Burnettes are our ambassadors. They interact with people, plants, and animals, forging bonds that can protect us when we are threatened. Their hair is brown because of their deep connection to the earth.
And as for redheads.
You don’t want to know the purpose of the Red Heads. But may their hellfire consume our enemies.
History of American Urban Squirrel
Until recently, Etienne Benson, an assistant professor in the University of Pennsylvania’s Department of History and Sociology of Science, has trained his academic eye on the history of conservation of large, charismatic wildlife, such as tigers, grizzly bears and orcas.
With his latest publication, however, he consciously chose to investigate a creature that may be considered less exotic, and is certainly smaller.
"I wanted to write about something a bit closer to home, about things we see and encounter every day," Benson said. "I wanted to shift the focus to the urban and the quotidian and, in some sense, the trivial, to see what we can learn by looking at trivial nature, or nature that is at risk of being interpreted as trivial."
So he turned his attention to the squirrel.
His paper, “The Urbanization of the Eastern Gray Squirrel in the United States,” published in the December issue of the Journal of American History, examines how the now-ubiquitous bushy-tailed critters found homes in American cities, and how their presence there altered people’s conceptions of nature and community.
Benson explains that though many people may think that squirrels have simply persisted in urban landscapes since Europeans arrived in the U.S., their presence is actually the result of intentional introductions.
It’s a cold & miserable Sunday evening (if you’re anywhere near my part of the Northern hemisphere, anyway), so now seemed like a good time to rec some fanfic by eleveninches, AKA author Erin Claiborne. I guess most of our Tumblr followers have already read the free excerpt from her hilarious YA fantasy novel, A Hero at the End of the World, but here’s some of her fanfic writing to tide you over!
Lord of the Rings
How to Save Your Marriage (4457 words) — “Aragorn needs an heir. Arwen wants to go home. Legolas is just there for the free food."
I reread this today as ~homework~ and I legit hurt my abs from laughing too hard. (Admittedly, I don’t have many abs. But this fic is still funny as hell.)
Crime and Medicine (31,404 words) — “When a simple extraction on Cobb goes haywire, Arthur loses a friend, gains an enemy, falls in love, and finds out exactly who he is — give or take a new alias or two. In which Fischer is incepted, Cobb’s secrets are property of the U.S. government, and Eames teaches Arthur that PVPing is an excellent life skill to have when you’re accidentally becoming a bad ass dreamsharing motherfucker." Arthur/Eames
One of my fave things about Inception fandom was the way everyone agreed, almost immediately, that Dom Cobb, the supposed protagonist of the movie, is a laughable weirdo. All of Erin’s fic in this fandom is tremendous, and I rec all of it, but I particularly enjoy the way she writes Cobb as being an Embarrassing Dad 99% of the time. Once you have experienced Inception fanon Cobb and/or Erin’s interpretation of his character, rewatching the movie becomes 10,000x funnier.
The Material Life of the Californian Suburb (35,756 words) — “Arthur seduces Eames into good." I basically wanted to quote the entirety of this fic for you guys, but you should probably just read it instead. IT’S AWESOME.
People Are People (Except When They’re Wraith) (22,698 words) — “Sheppard has a run-in with the Wraith from Common Ground. Things go downhill from there." Basically, Sheppard accidentally mind-melds with a Wraith. McKay/Sheppard
IDK how much overlap there is between Tumblr fandom and people who were into Stargate Atlantis in the late-2000s, but Erin had some really interesting fic ideas in this fandom, and wrote some great depictions of John Sheppard as an embarrassing idiot dweeb. I reread “People Are People…” recently and was CROLing all the way through at John’s blatant terribleness. (Also Rodney’s blatant terribleness, because obviously.)
There’s No Such Thing As Daniel Jackson (42,456 words) — “Six months after a devastating attack against Earth, Sheppard gets a promotion and a reassignment to Russia, where he encounters evil aliens, Rodney McKay, SG-1, a possible plot against him — and a series of unexplained visions." McKay/Sheppard
Magneto’s First Step Towards Conquering the World and Exterminating All Humans, in the Aftermath of San Francisco (607 words) — After the events of X-Men: The Last Stand, Magneto needs to find a new job.
