Darren Hunt of Utah

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

Misinformation courtesy my local vet’s office. Bleurgh. You can tell they really love kibble. 

Actually, there is a lot of contention as to whether dogs are omnivores or carnivores. They are scavengers, unlike their hunter ancestors.They are very adaptable, with teeth resembling that of a carnivore, but a GI tract resembling that of an omnivore. They are certainly not obligate carnivores.

Their GI tract can adapt to a plant-heavy diet, but that doesn’t mean it’s good for them. They can survive on plants/plant heavy diet, but never thrive. Also, they work overtime to produce amylase in the GI tract, it doesn’t occur that naturally. That and the speed of digestion leads me to believe they’re better suited at digesting meat than veggies. But, like you said, they’re scavengers (we think), and very adaptable. But just because something CAN live a certain way doesn’t mean we should make them. 

Oh no, I’m in total agreement with you! A primarily meat based diet is absolutely better for them. But it is good to have at least some vegetable matter in there too, I don’t want folks to go around thinking their dogs’ food shouldn’t have any vegetable content at all. They need dat vitamin E and all.

Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).

are you shitting me

how did he find this talent…

Oh my….

Alexander Tsiaras’ Anatomical Photography

You’ve seen his art before on tumblr, in google search gif sets (where I found some of these images) and facebook, but you likely don’t know the author of the art because people fail to give artists credit. Tsiaras’ work pops up on my dash constantly and has never been sourced as far as I’ve seen it. So here you go, tumblr. Meet the artist. Learn more in the links provided below.

"Alexander Tsiaras, Founder, Editor-in-Chief and CEO of TheVisualMD, has been called a "Digital Age Leonardo da Vinci". He is a technology innovator, whose roots are based in his art and science photojournalism background. Tsiaras has developed cutting edge scientific imaging software that enables him to scan and record the human body at every stage; from a single cell at the moment of conception, through the biological development of man and woman and he tells compelling stories of wellness and prevention with them. His images simply and compellingly explain health and illness in terms that anyone can understand. Most importantly, they give you a visual map to plan your own optimal Health!"

Even before I read Homestuck I thought this was the funniest thing.

this comic appears on my dash routinely, like every month it appears like “time to read pancakesteins panty raid comic again” and I read it every time

This comic is how I got multiple friends into homestuck.

Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.

" To preserve the open Internet, the FCC must reclassify broadband Internet access as a telecommunications service."
This is very interesting because we don’t need phone lines to access the internet anymore. While phone companies are the ones providing this service we no longer have to struggle with answering the phone and disconnecting the internet.
Verizon’s fiber network is very fast and it seems like this would hinder gaining any new customers (except for areas where it is your only option like apartment complexes and HOAs). Even if you get your existing customers to pay more I’m not sure if this will offset the cost to implement new restriction by a significant amount.
They would need to work on new software and hardware. They would need to add training to their employees. It would be a full nationwide overhaul and unless they just nickel and dime the shit out of you I don’t think there would be a significant enough profit margin.
We could even be going back to pre-broadband speeds if they are going to go to extremes. They could lose a lot of webmaster business through hosting services.
It would also open up a new venture into hacking your wireless and hacking into your neighbors wireless.
I don’t think this was well thought out other than seeing things through comical dollar sign glasses.
Would an economist or tech geek like to explain better?

World’s Most Beautiful Abandoned Places

Italian product manager and web designer Francesco Mugnai recently added a collection of images to his blog touting some of the most beautiful images of abandoned spots and modern ruins that he’d ever seen. The images Mugnai has captured come from empty castles, shuttered power plants, and dilapidated churches around the world. From a sunken yacht in Antarctica to a forever-closed amusement park in Japan, these images all make up a sort of anti-phoenix; rather than rising as new from the ashes, these husks remain preserved in decomposition, forcing viewers to confront the strange beauty of ruination.

I think the reason why the phrase “I’m not like most girls” annoys me so much is because women have been conditioned to feel like they have to disassociate themselves from the female gender to be recognised as an interesting human being and if that isn’t fucked up then I don’t know what is

THE CREATOR HAS SPOKEN

If a girl is lucky enough to receive any sex education, she will be taught the biological basics. She’ll learn that men have penises and testicles and produce sperm and women have vaginas and uterii and produce ova. She’ll learn that when a man and a woman have sex, the man inserts his penis into the woman’s vagina until he ejaculates. She’ll learn that the semen in the ejaculate will render her vulnerable to pregnancy so she will have to protect herself by using a hormonal or a barrier contraceptive. Hormonal contraception is preferable because barrier methods such as condoms, while safer for women, apparently reduce sensation for men which is obviously a no-no. It’s much better that a woman take a pill every day for her entire reproductive lifespan, or get a painful injection every 12 weeks, or have a copper rod inserted into her uterus, or a silicone rod implanted into her arm. She probably won’t learn that 3 out of 4 women never orgasm from vaginal intercourse. She almost definitely won’t learn how women do achieve orgasm. She’ll learn her place as a receptacle.
Let Me Slip Into Something A Little Less Comfortable (via yourtinyraindrop)

That’s some nice anecdote right there. I have some anecdotes too!
Never in my sex education did anyone suggest that hormonal contraception is preferable. Everybody without exception emphasized the use of condoms, because only condoms prevent STI transmission. But condoms do not just reduce pleasure for the male, they do for the female as well. Which is why having a copper rod in your uterus is actually pretty damn great. Nobody ever told me about the copper rod, I had to discover that shit on my own. Similarly, you can learn how to orgasm on your own. Sex ed is supposed to be about the mechanics and safety. You can’t have a class that teaches you how to please your partner or yourself, because everybody is different in that respect.
