I post fan gifs alongside whatever pretentious stuff I happen to be interested in at the time. Don't expect to find depth or coherency here.

You grow up readin’ about pirates and cowboys and spacemen and stuff, and jus’ when you think the world’s all full of amazin’ things, they tell you it’s really all dead whales and chopped-down forests and nucular waste hangin’ about for millions of years. ‘Snot worth growin’ up for, if you ask my opinion.

Limbaugh claimed that requiring affirmative consent is an unreasonable standard because guys know that ‘no means yes if you know how to spot it.’

A top Democrat is calling on radio stations to stop broadcasting the Rush Limbaugh Show (via think-progress)

The NDP issued a statement saying “the agreement will give China’s state-controlled companies the same protection under the law as private Canadian companies.

"In effect, it will give China access to, and control over, some of Canada’s natural resources for the next 31 years."

NDP trade critic Don Davies put forward a motion in the House of Commons in April 22, 2013, calling on the government not to ratify the agreement. The motion was defeated.

Green Party Leader Elizabeth May in a statement on Wednesday said the FIPA with China was a “sell out.”

Deputy Green Party Leader Bruce Hyer added cabinet is, “signing of this deal behind closed doors, instead of giving Parliament a say, is not just undemocratic in itself … it is also a profound attack of Canada’s sovereignty as a nation, and an erosion of the rights of all Canadians to make democratic decisions about our economy, environment, and energy.”

"survival of the fittest exists in nature, so it’s only natural that humans should do it too"

get the fuck out of my face

I actually read something recently about how this argument actually presupposes a divine or supernatural agency in nature that decrees how everything…

Survival of the Fittest is a myth.

Behold!: http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn13671-evolution-myths-survival-of-the-fittest-justifies-everyone-for-themselves.html#.VBiVSOvD-aw

"What we see in the wild is not every animal for itself. Cooperation is an incredibly successful survival strategy. Indeed it has been the basis of all the most dramatic steps in the history of life. Complex cells evolved from cooperating simple cells. Multicellular organisms are made up of cooperating complex cells. Superorganisms such as bee or ant colonies consist of cooperating individuals."

Its just another example of how poorly the average person understands the ecological system UPON WHICH WE DEPEND FOR OUR LIVES, actually works.

One of the most radical things you can do is to actually believe women when they talk about their experiences.

It seems that when you have cancer you are a brave battler against the disease, but when you have Alzheimer’s you are an old fart. That’s how people see you. It makes you feel quite alone.
