So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?
ok, why the fuck is the graph upside down. that is incredibly misleading
Because its from the Florida Department of Justice, and they have a mandate here.
for those who have trouble inverting it in their head, ftfy:
this is some of the most blatant twisting of info i have ever seen holy shit
This pisses me off every time I see it. Fuck you, Florida.
So I made this Facebook post about how I should do a cosplay photoshoot sometime since I won’t be able to wear my Jareth costume to Norwescon. Carson commented that I should get our friend Dana to do the shoot - her niche is boudoir photography, but she can do a lot of other great stuff too. So then the dude jumps in with “I would say my friend over at X studio is superior. :)”
Dude. Do you really not get how rude that was? I got onto him about it and tried to de-awkwardize the situation in the comments, but gatdamn. He genuinely had no idea he was being rude and thought the smiley face would “soften the blow” instead of coming off as passive-aggressive.
dear fucking tumblr
this is a fucking bumblebee
this is a fucking bee
this is a fucking hornet
this is a fucking wasp
as you can fucking see the longer their legs are and the less fuzzy they are is equivalent to how fucking evil they fucking are
I feel like I just watched a step by step pokemon evolution

i reblogged this at the beginning of the year wishing for a job and well by the end of january i got an interview and was hired on the spot so yeah
Sure, why the hell not, I wish the clinic job I applied for would call me because DAMMIT I WOULD BE AMAZING AT THAT JOB
The trailer came out today for Gone Girl, a movie whose substance I care nothing about, but large parts of which were filmed in my hometown.
I’ve spent the last couple of years not really caring whether I return there or not. I’m in this totally different chapter of my life, and there are a lot of aspects of small-Missouri-town that I don’t particularly care to relive. But damn, after watching that trailer I really miss it.
I feel like I’m slowly but surely becoming more socially inept, and I’m not sure what to do about it. Like, I’ll be having a conversation with a group and then find out later that I was coming off as catty or snarky when I wasn’t meaning to. Or when I’m trying to explain something or answer questions under any sort of duress I start stuttering and have a hard time finishing my thoughts.
I’m not sure what to make of this, but I need to come up with SOME sort of strategy, since I’m actively looking for a job and want to avoid looking like an incoherent arse at interviews.
1. I don’t like folding laundry or talking about my emotions. I’m likely to leave both scattered all over.
2. I’m not much for cooking but there will always be coffee.
3. I’ll wear anything of yours with sleeves. I love when they’re long enough to wrap around my hands.
4. Sometimes the world is too harsh, too big. It’s hard to leave the house on days like those.
5. When I was sick as a kid my mom would run a bath for me and wash my hair. It was always so soothing. Maybe you could do that every once in a while.
6. I find it difficult to finish most things. My room is home to countless journals of incomplete thoughts.
7. I won’t love you any less in December. I think my heart just wasn’t meant for the cold.
8. I never truly know why I’m crying so don’t bother to ask, simply be there.
9. There’s whiskey in the medicine cabinet.
10. If things get terribly bad, please don’t give up. Get me in the car and drive to the sea. The waves beneath my toes will wake me up and I’ll be yours again.
Things to know before promising you’ll stay. (via seabelle)
Spot on with #4, 6, 7 and 8. Whoosh.
The dad cat liked to hang out in the sink by himself
AND THEN THE KITTENS FOUND HIM
HE LOOKS SO ANNOYED
I DIDN’T SIGN ON FOR THIS SHIT.
it literally can not get cuter than this
Today is the day I reblog a lot of cats doing cute shit, apparently.
That cat is not even playful, he is -concerned- about this fucking penguin
CAT: ARE YOU OKAY SMALL WIBBLY ANIMAL
S-sir? Sir, what are you-
Sir, are you-
Sir, please stop.
Are you okay?
I can’t remember if I reblogged this or not but I’m reblogging it now
I think I’ve reblogged this before, but I’m gonna do it again because this kitten reminds me of the foofy kitten that took up residence in our garage the last summer we were in the old house. I named her Thing.
night vale is one of those things you gotta pay constant attention to because if you zone out for one fucking second you are lost in the pacific with no life boat and you have a better chance of turning into jesus and walking on the water to shore than understanding what the fuck cecil is talking about
Which is interesting because when it first started it was almost entirely a monster-of-the-week show. Like, there were a few things that connected between episodes, but those usually weren’t too relevant to the overall plot of the episode, so you could totally play someone an episode out of context and they wouldn’t be confused. Or at least, no more than the general confusion most people encounter upon first listening to Night Vale.
And then we meet StrexCorp and shit gets real.
i don’t trust people who are super into “proper grammar” and “correct punctuation” because what lies just beyond that smug superiority is some sinister classism that gets acutely racist in a red hot minute, so for similar reasons I’m instantly wary of anyone who takes great pride in their love of “logic” and “intellect”
Most people love proper grammar and punctuation are people who are…
Writers and authors?
The people who make textbooks.
Appreciating literacy, punctuation and grammar is important, and doesn’t mean racism or discrimination.
I don’t even know where that mindset came from, but it’s utter confusion.
You’ve been taught since Kindergarten to use periods, commas, apostrophes and the difference between your and you’re. They’re important, especially when writing essays in college and high school and filling out resumes and job applications.
Nowhere down the road did proper grammar and punctuation ever amount to discrimination. Those are two things that should not be pigeon-holed with each other EVER.
It’s only those people who are like “you missed a comma, you’re r***rded” are the ones who are smug. Not the entire population of people who use good grammar, punctuation and spelling.
this was tagged “why do people not appreciate good english anymore”
uh, maybe because speaking english is not the be-all, end-all indicator of intelligence? maaaaaybe bc english isn’t someone’s first language?
Yyyeah, I was an English major. And I won’t lie, I used to think like this. But honestly, all it takes is one decent linguistics class to make the point that language is fluid, changing constantly, and therefore the idea of having “standard” English be the goal for which everyone should strive is pretty pointless at best.
"Nowhere down the road did proper grammar and punctuation ever amount to discrimination." Oh, really? Then why is it that when Black people talk in a way other people consider "proper", they so often get told they "sound white"? Or that the go-to indicator of lack of intelligence in media is a redneck drawl?
Also, nowhere did the OP say that anyone who uses “proper” language elements is a smug asshole, although that may well be true to some extent or another. They were talking about those people who are vocally proud of their own language/grammar skills, feel superior for that reason, and hold others to that same standard.
