SCOTT MCCLOUD LIKES THE NEW AFTER HOURS
YES, THAT SCOTT MCCLOUD
I was so excited when Soren started mentioning Understanding Comics! The arguments were SO on point with the theories in the book!
The cat isn’t set on fire, it is a bit of her fur. Chill.
I despise people.
I hate people.
LET ME TELL ALL OF YOU A LITTLE STORY!
when I was a youngin, I had a neighbor about my age with a bunch of cats. There was one he had that he called Coco, and she was a beautiful little brown tabby who was most definitely the runt of her litter. So she was easier to pick on. This fucker set her whiskers on fire. WHISKERS ARE THE MOST SENSITIVE PART ON A CATS BODY. THEY USE THEM TO NAVIGATE IN THE DARK. This little cat came over to our house singed and in massive amounts of pain, and she never came out of our house again. Her name is Heidibelle, she has lived with us for eight years now, and she acts like a mother cat would towards my brother, sister, and myself. Every night she goes into all of our rooms to make sure we are safe and sleeping soundly. If one of us is upset, she comes to make sure we are okay. My Heidibelle is lucky, and I think she knows it because she has gifted us by being an amazing, loving kitty when she had every right to be distrustful of people everywhere.
HARMING ANIMALS IS SERIAL KILLER BEHAVIOR! YOU ARE A SICK, TWISTED, AWFUL HUMAN BEING IF YOU THINK HARMING INNOCENT ANIMALS IS FUN! Instead of regulating gun laws, we should regulate pet owners. My Heidibelle was lucky, but not every creature is. NO ANIMAL DESERVES TO BE IN A HOME LIKE THIS NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU “DONT LIKE CATS” OR “ARENT A DOG PERSON” OR WHAT THE FUCK EVER. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO HARM A CREATURE THAT, WHEN GIVEN THE CHANCE, WANTS NOTHING BUT LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE.
Now everyone fucking forgive me I gotta get off tumblr and hug all my animals because this shit pisses me off and hurts my heart more than anything else ever could.
Her real name is listed someone should file an animal abuse complaint and have her pay for this. She lives in Redlands, California.
i have never seen any creature, human or otherwise so passionate about iceberg lettuce, nature’s blandest green.
You can’t solve a problem without illustrating it.
#4. Not Questioning Institutions
Why aren’t there more female investment bankers? Maybe it’s actually the same reason there aren’t more male investment bankers who aren’t insufferable alpha males — because investment banking is a gigantic fly trap for macho assholes and ideally nobody should be doing it. … This is of course in no way to suggest that efforts to reduce gender imbalances should cease, because there are going to be people of any gender who want to be investment bankers for whatever reason, and equality means all of them should by God have an equal chance at wasting their lives… The point is just to illustrate that what men do is automatically seen as desirable, as opposed to maybe asking if maybe something having no women in it maybe means it’s maybe bullshit maybe.
I love this article. I can always rely on you, Cracked.
Pain is not exclusive to humans.
this genuinely makes my heart hurt
I really dislike when people say animals aren’t smart, or that they can’t feel emotions.
Sorry to rain on your parade but… While true, these are not emotions of sadness. These are emotions of dominance.
This isn’t a bird mourning over a dead bird.
This is a male bird raping the corpse of its rival to show dominance so that the chick birds will come mate with him and other males don’t step in his territory looking for mates.
Birds are fucking brutal man.
At first I thought this was a joke, but now that I see you’re serious I’m actually embarrassed for you. And disappointed, but let’s get to that later.
The pictures here belong to photographer Wilson Hsu, and if you knew the first thing about birds (which you obviously don’t), you’d be able to tell that the deceased bird is a female due to its more desaturated plumage and shorter tail feathers. Here, let’s post the coloured version to confirm, because tumblr has some sort of bizarre fetish for making everything black and white.
There goes your first point.
If you knew the second thing about birds, you’d be able to identify this species as a Barn swallow. And while you are correct in your assumption that the males are fairly territorial, they also mate for life and are fiercely dedicated to their female counterpart. Barn swallows, along with most small birds, are actually physically incapable of any sort of penetrative sex, because they have a cloaca instead of a penis. Mating is done by passing a packet of sperm from the male’s cloaca into the female’s, not by inserting a penis into a vagina. Necrophilia in this species is completely unheard of, and would be a complete waste.
So if we take all this information I’ve just told you, and couple it up with the fact that Wilson Hsu’s entire collection of these photos is uploaded online, which vividly depicts a male Barn Swallow trying to rouse his mate which has just died, we can infer you know literally nothing about the species as a whole, didn’t even bother to look up where the pictures were from, and are deliberately spreading misinformation for the sake of looking COOL N’ EDGY on tumblr dot com.
Normally I wouldn’t get so heated about this sort of thing, but that’s just stupid as hell.
Now that was a first class read *applause*
"Allies have raised our profiles beyond what is necessary to help the LGBT community. It’s been a big year for allies to get famous, grab a book deal, win awards, maybe pocket some speaker’s fees for appearances. Resources that should be going to empower LGBT voices are instead going to enhance the visibility of straight people. We’ve created professional allies (or, as the history major in me would call them, mercenaries). We’ve created famous allies. Think of how absurd that concept is."
do you know how hard it is to find a non sexualized picture of scarlett johanssen i’ve literally been looking for this picture for an hour and a half
