Please don't make the Joker into a Woobie. You're breaking everyone's brains.

PSA from the Department of What, are you an idiot? STFU!
No one likes hipster racists. I remembered something from my childhood. When I was young, I remember a time where everyone was freaking out. Vaccination records needed to be produced, and some were vaccinated at school. I didn't get a shot since my vaccination records merely had transposed dates, and were considered valid. This article is here so I don't forget it,

I also remember there being a huge push about washing your hands and the danger of Hepatitis A. Here's a journal article about that outbreak.

This story makes me feel kind of weird. Why all the focus on how a 14 year old is OMGFLAUNTINGHISSEXUALITY with his OMGMAKEUP! and OMGHIGHEELs!? Doing stuff like that is the sort of thing that 14 year olds will do. I wore a halter top to school once, for heaven's sake! But murder? Now, that's a heinous crime even if some guy was OMG!COMINGONTOYOU!!

I am trying to watch the classy news[PBS] and they mentioned that this one girl had failed the science part of some high stakes test 14 times because she was working 2 jobs, 70 hours a week. This girl is in high school, but I am not sure if she is overage or not.

eta: she's 20!

AMVs of Cowboy Bebop=yay

I am glad Color of Change is making national TV. Colbert is doing something on them, and is funny while proving their point.
'Marry Your Baby Daddy day'?

I don't think marriage is magic. If he's unemployed before the wedding, he's not going to suddenly get a job, ok?

In a movie theater, I saw a guy who had foolishly brought a five year old to The Dark Knight. He also had a tattoo saying Tennesey on his arm. Personally, this sounds rude but I wouldn't marry that guy if you paid me! And I bet the mother of his child didn't marry him for a reason. [and if she did marry him, well..I wouldn't marry a guy who hits on random girls in the movies]
Ah, good old sanctimony. Has it occured to ms. ladidah here that maybe people have different values than she does? I think we fetishize independence at the cost of many other important things. If someone is able to instead of spending 13 years in undergrad, working at MiccyDs, to only spend four years in, and gain many internship oppurtunities because of their parents' help, why suffer just to sound superior?

I think that families supporting each other should become a more important part of this culture. If your parents helped you with school, you still studied, and did the work. If you buy things with money you only worked 20 hours a week for on top of school instead of 50 hours a week for does that make your work disappear? The problem with this is that it presupposes that everyone is the same. The girl who can make As without opening a single book is the same as the girl who has to read the book, go to class, study and go to tutoring. They both have equal stamina too. Nobody ever gets so exhausted they can't concentrate. It's all just time management! If you can't write 20 pages at 3 am the day before it's due, you're just lazy! And working? Doesn't take any energy. No one needs more than 5 hours of sleep at night, anyway.

I really just think people's health, mental and physical, should be more important than independence. Even if they are just buying Gucci bags, well..woopty do.
"It occurred to me, while I was looking at two decades of Penthouses, that Penthouse and other magazines like it had absolutely nothing to do with women and absolutely everything to do with pictures of women" Neil Gaiman on page 25 of Smoke and Mirrors.

But many people never come to this realization that real women and real sex aren't the same as porn women[posed and directed just for that moment] and porn sex[written by a person, most often a man].

Anyway, I bring you the worst porn ever. If you read this, you'll die laughing.
Best page ever.

Oh those wacky folks! Personally, I think he should eat the wafers and donate the Korans to a charity, because it seems wrong to waste a perfectly good book.

Although I have to take issues with the ohnoes!thecraaazymoooslims posters. The folks sending death threats are an example that Christians are just as insane. I'm not saying that taking people's religious wafers is good, but cool it with the death threats. My religiosity has faded so much I'm having a hard time understanding what's going on, actually. I always thought the wafers and grape juice were merely symbolism, that the whole communion was a ritual to remember Jesus' sacrifice. So the whole issue is hazy in my mind, because to me, the wafer itself has no power, it's the ritual that has the power. So to me, without the belief, it really doesn't matter what happens to the wafers.

Remember: No man's penis is too large for a condom. Wrap it before you tap it.
t Amanda is against anti-vax crazies, and on this I agree with her.

I was wondering if Penelo being changed into a staff chick in FF12 on the DS but I found this great whine on etsy. You say omg,obama kills baaaaabies and then flounce? total pussybaby stuff.
This old comment made me think about racism and sexism together. In that situation, the white women not only have the burden of protecting the man from the consequences of his actions, but racism is also furthered- he knows he won't have any repercussions for airing such horrible words because women will smooth it over, and such things become acceptable to be aired.

People are posting on the intertubes about hardcore gaming and all. Eh, the truth is that even though I'm excited about getting FFXII: Revanant Wings, and am squeeing about it, and am also excited about Civ revolution and Spore: PC, that doesn't mean I'm going to put down folks who want to use their ds for a diet helper[there's really a game like that!] Really, it's all capitalism. The amount of people who want to spend even 30 hours playing a game is much smaller than the amount of people who want to play something for 10 minutes or so, and then put it down. If Nintendo can collect money from those folks, of course, they'd want to.

Of course, I'm so behind in my gaming that there are enough not so casual games on PC, PS2 and DS to have me playing for at least 5 years, so even if Nintendo only released Sudoku games for all its systems for a year, I'd be happily gaming away.

I'm glad someone else noted that the purpose of black people on earth is not to make white people happy. If white people want to be happy, they should go and make their own selves happy. Really, if you want to think badly of black people, you're going to think badly, even if black people shit rainbows and give you free unicorns.

More stupidfree. On one hand I want to be like no assault, blah blah, on the other hand, I can see how someone can be sick of being nice all the time. Also, nothing black people can do can end racism. I don't think walking away or giving her a lecture would have any effect, and punching her would at least be satisfying.

My woman hating friend has beat Perfect Cherry Blossom on Lunatic difficulty. It took him over a year to beat this shooter. I'm happy despite my rash, diarrhea and god knows what else is wrong with me at the moment. He says I didn't believe he could do it.
Lady wears dumb shirt, gets ass beat, the internet laughs. I'd like to note that black people can choose to beat the asses of any idiots they desire, and racism isn't their fault. That's what annoys me about the whole they didn't march so you could beat some idiots ass stuff. Dude, we're human and can be anyone we want to be. We deserve rights even if some of us are assholes, if some of us make mistakes. I say this because the whole blacks only deserve x, y or z if they are perfect stuff plays right into racists' hands, because someone, somewhere, will wear questionable fashions, have mental illnesses or even just do things that are fun and interesting, so you can't win at that game.

Ah, on the internet, we have stupid. Really, Africa isn't a country, and really, yea, some people do eat clay, which may or may not be bad for them, but no need for eugenics crazy,ok?

On a lighter note, Indians find fun and creative uses for condoms.

Today's link post is about the subject that measles is nothing to sneeze at.

What measles is. Note the death part

Measles is caused by a virus that normally grows in cells that line the back of the throat and line the lungs. It spreads through contact with a sneezing, coughing, infected person.

Symptoms include rash, high fever, cough, runny nose, and red, watery eyes. But about 1 in 5 measles sufferers experience more severe illness that can include diarrhea, ear infections, pneumonia, encephalitis and even seizures and death.

Again, measles can kill children.

Measles remains a leading cause of death among children in poor countries, killing about 250,000 people a year globally.

Really, vaccinate your kids.
Nobody wants an outbreak of the measles.

"What concerns me is the trend of more and more people not vaccinating their children because of fears that vaccines cause autism — although no studies have proven this to be true," Dr. Joseph Rahimian, an infectious disease specialist at St. Vincent's Hospital in Manhattan, told FOXNews.com in May.

Last month British health officials said measles had become an epidemic in that country for the first time since the mid-1990s due to parents not getting their children vaccinated.

"With the whole debate about vaccines — and now parents due to their personal beliefs not vaccinating their children — what we are seeing now is that we are going to have these epidemic outbreaks throughout the country," said Dr. Manny Alvarez, managing editor of health at FOXNews.com.

"If this continues, we will see outbreaks throughout the entire developed world — something we have never seen before," he added.

There should be a public health campaign- "Not vaccinating your kids? That's a dick move". It's mean, but being mean never gave anyone seizures and death. Death- not something people appreciate- especially people in poor neighborhoods with immune systems run down by stress, poor nutrition and disease, and of course, our people living with AIDs. Yes, your child can transmit the measles.

I beat FF12! But I'm sad to beat it. But then again, it was nice to see the really high quality CGI again and the FFT style art in the ending. And if I'm really sad, I guess I could just save up for the sequel.
Shame on people who attack transyouth

On 30 days, morgan spurlock lives on a Navajo reservation and is exposed to the poverty and joblessness there. He does do some omg, they are so connected to the land stuff, but seeing the native americans themselves talk about their situation counteracts that

Best video ever. My favorite parts are: the sticker saying I'd rather ride a unicorn on his sewing machine, the rainbow thread, and the fact that he tied a hammock to a stop sign.
