I love this website: FlightRadar24.com
You know why? Look at this (I live approximately at the location pointed by the arrow):
See that AAL234? It is an American Airlines Boeing 777-200 flying from São Paulo to Miami. Now look at that baby over there:
Tiny, eh? Well.
Now reconsider because this was taken with a fucking iPod touch.
This is the same man.
This works quite nicely at debunking the “beefcake guys in comics are objectified for women just like women in comics are for men!”, imo. On the left: a magazine tailored for a male audience, showing him in full beefcake-type mode with headlines about how you, too, can look like this. On the right: a magazine tailored for a female audience, which has a headline about romance and shows him looking more or less like a normal dude.
Tell me again how comic book guys are designed for female sexual enjoyment, completely equivalent to anatomically-improbable spines and giant tits with their own individual centers of gravity, and totes aren’t just male power fantasies.
I just saw that video a few days ago of a woman high on heroin on the 66 bus with her young daughter by her side because some misguided individual thought I would find it funny, and it makes me sick and angry on so many levels. I used to ride the 66 bus at least twice a week up and down Frankford…
Beware of Artists. This is a Tumblr meme (and not a McCarthy era poster as widely reported). Neither is it a direct quote from Queen Victoria, but rather a letter King Leopold of Belgium wrote to Queen Victoria in 1845, "The dealings with artists, for instance, require great prudence; they are acquainted with all classes of society, and for that very reason dangerous;…" I still love this quote.
dumbfounded a murder of crows isn’t on here.
my english told me that a group of unicorns is called a blessing and thats the most beautiful thing I’ve ever heard
I have been looking for this my entire life!
Q:I hate that people of septa Facebook page. I've been following the story of the little girl watching her mother nodding off on the Route 66 bus, and it just gets me more and more angry. This whole situation was handled so poorly by everyone involved, and it just upsets me on a deep level. Worst part is, they're probably more popular than ever because of that post.
I just saw that video a few days ago because some misguided individual thought I would find it funny, and I share your reaction or feeling sick and angry upon viewing it. I used to ride the 66 bus at least twice a week up and down Frankford Avenue when I worked in the Northeast. Unfortunately, people who are really messed up as a result of drugs was an almost expected occurrence.
All that said, here’s what I don’t understand. Every time I have been on public transportation, or out in public and seen someone who was really messed up on drugs as the woman in that video was, not once was my reaction, “Oh shit, I better break out my phone and get video of this so I can put this up on the internet.” That’s the last thing on my mind. I have asked people if they were alright, contemplated calling paramedics, kept a watchful eye on them to make sure they didn’t collapse or anything like that, but not once did I ever think to do anything as despicable and disgusting as film them for others to laugh at…especially since one side of my family has numerous people who are currently hardcore drug addicts. If anything, it made me really sad knowing the effect that drugs have had on the people in my family, and have likely had on their’s.
I said it once, I’ll say it again: fuck People of Septa. I don’t like having beef with people, or other websites…and I go out of my way to make sure I don’t have any, but when it comes to People of SEPTA, I couldn’t care less how they feel about me because I know they certainly don’t care about people. It’s a heartless and outright cruel endeavor to take a picture or video of someone who clearly has a lot going on in their lives without their knowledge and then put it up there for over 45000 people on Facebook to make judgmental comments about.
Something I always think about when I see people who are in clear need of some help: that’s someone’s daughter, or son, and might be someone’s father or mother. How would they feel?
Fuck People of Septa, and I don’t feel bad for saying it.
