Furio Tigre is one of my favourite Ace Attorney characters because the whole case is like one of those kids cartoons where one of the characters gets like, an evil robot clone and the other characters are all like OH NO WHICH ONE IS THE REAL ONE?” even though one is clearly made out of aluminum siding and bolts.

TurboRoo, a chihuahua born without its front legs, was given a 3D printed cart made by San Diego firm 3dyn so he could train to be a service dog for disabled children.

I think we could all use these pics today.

Here’s Where Your Living Will Can Be Ignored When You’re A Pregnant Woman

Frightening, but I guess there’s no better way to show you think women are no better than incubators than ignoring their living will.

IF YOU HAD ROOM WITH ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IN IT AND THE WALLS CEILING AND FLOOR WERE MADE OF MIRROR WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE IN THE MIRRORS

No.

Holy shit I asked my dad who’s a physics teacher and he just looked at me, looked at the table, looked at me, tried not to smile, looked angry, and started to look up where you can buy big mirrors.

this is an actual room of mirrors.

as you can see, it leads to glitches in the matrix

Joke of the day.

frostedsammy:

An Englishman, a Frenchman, a Spaniard and a German are all standing watching a street performer do some excellent juggling. The juggler notices that the four gentlemen have a very poor view, so he stands up on a large wooden box and calls out, “Can you all see me now?”

“Yes.”
“Oui.”
“Sí.”
“Ja.”

what

Took me about ten minutes to finally understand this

stupidest/most awesome joke ever

These tweets (and one retweet) are from my friend Ryan, a journalist who has been on the ground in Ferguson for the past few days. (His Twitter account is here, and it’s a great source of updates on the situation there   [x]).

I just wanted to remind everybody that while spreading word about Michael Brown’s unjust murder and the horrifying events of the night of August 14, 2014, please do not oversimplify or ignore the complexities of the situation.

Journalists in the town have been doing what journalists do: focusing on all the negative aspects about the community to try and make it look like a hell-hole in order to sell their own pictures and stories, and basically all many of them want to do is further their own careers. But focusing on all that negativity only paints the picture of one side of the story, ignoring a lot of other important things going on there.

Please do not fall prey to the media’s game. Anger at the actions of the police in Ferguson is totally justified, but in the midst of that we cannot allow the people who are living with the situation every day to be dehumanized. Despite all this tragedy and chaos going on around them, they’re still a community and in many ways they’re pulling through all of it together. They want peace. Anyone looting or burning things down is a very small portion of the community. The whole story is so much bigger.

A story doesn’t need tear gas to be interesting. We need to hear every side of this story, not just the horrific parts.

TL:DR: please don’t fall prey to media attempts to dehumanize and oversimplify the situation in ferguson!!

sometimes i think “wow wouldn’t it be great if the government provided this basic human necessity” then the other half of my brain goes communism. the thing you are thinking of is communism. and it was so fucking drilled into my head in school that communism is a big, giant horrible BAD THING that will destroy everything but like it actually makes a lot of fuckin’ sense

Would it make you feel better if I told you that it is not communism?

The majority of Americans have been taught that socialism and communism are essentially the same thing and that any time the government provides basic human necessity, it’s communism.

And, of course, communism is evil.

First of all, Medicaid, Medicare, welfare, food stamps, etc, are socialist. In fact, the United States is a mixed economy - it has capitalist and socialist elements.

It’s western socialism, which says “Prove you need it and you can have it.” Other western countries have socialized medicine, which means everyone pays in and everyone gets out (It’s NOT free healthcare, that’s a misunderstanding. In the UK, for example, it is called “National Insurance” - you pay contributions, just the same as to social security).

Communism is different.

Marx stated “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” This evolved, or devolved, into the idea that everyone gets what they need equally regardless of their job…you do the job you’re suited for, but a general and a janitor should not get different paychecks.

Needless to say, this doesn’t work except for small voluntary communities (A form of communism has been practiced by monastic communities in the east and the west for centuries).

The reason Communism is wrong is not so much because it is evil as because it goes against human nature and human needs and doesn’t work. Because it doesn’t work, you start having to “Build a wall to keep your people in” - to apply force to the situation.

And because people have a desire to earn more than their next person, communist systems on any large scale rapidly become corrupt.

Socialism, on the other hand, says “Give everyone their basic needs, let them earn the rest.” To be socialist, there has to be a central plan as to what those basic needs are - which results in massive infrastructure that decides who needs what, system fraud, and people not getting things they actually need.

The other alternative, the government simply handing people enough money to cover basic needs is called Guaranteed Income or Basic Income and has been toyed with and experimented with, and is under serious discussion in Switzerland. This is not true socialism, because you aren’t planning people’s lives. If you give somebody, say, $1000 a month, it’s their fault if they spend it on booze then don’t make the rent, so there’s still freedom and personal responsibility…and I could go into that all day (needless to say, I’m a proponent of Guaranteed Income as a solution moving into a society in which the amount of necessary labor keeps dropping).

THANK YOU SO MUCH

YOU JUST TAUGHT ME MORE THAN ANY GOVERNMENT CLASS EVER
