Security

By | March 29, 2014

Security Guards Outnumber High School Teachers in the United States. Historically speaking, the more unequal the society, the more people get paid to protect the interests and assets of the rich from the rabble.

Revenge

Idiot Flips Off Woman While Driving, Woman Gets Instant Revenge. So awesome. Sometimes the universe enacts its own justice.

Prop 8

By the way, the new CEO of Mozilla, Brendan Eich, is a known homophobe. Yet another reason someone needs to fork the fuck out of Firefox and make a real browser again.

Not that lost

By | March 25, 2014

This is interesting, but…ok. That’s why this stuff finds its way into high school curricula, while very little of anything before 1800 does. (Anecdote: I once tried to read Paradise Lost in high school. Didn’t make it past the second page. Because: TOO HARD.) I read Paradise Lost when I was 10. Other than a… Read More »

Like an animal

This woman is just…wow. So much talent should be illegal. It makes the rest of us look bad. So fluid. I could never, ever do what she does.
