I wasn’t referring to this in my last post, but… The lawmakers cited U.S. law, which states that funds must be denied to any organization granting the Palestine Liberation Organization “the same standing as member states.” That’s a fucking awful law.
There needs to be a way to make congress responsible for the bills it passes. Like, make members of congress criminally liable for passing shitty legislation, or make it illegal to vote on legislation they haven’t actually read.
Google Maps says it would take about 13 straight days of walking to walk 500 miles followed by 500 more.
I would walk 500 miles / And I would walk 500 more
I get paid twice a month. The first one is annoying because it’s like “I just got so much money! Wait, I have all these bills to pay… I don’t have money anymore!” But the second paycheck is almost entirely disposable income, which is nice.
Toph was a little overpowered in Avatar. Being insanely good at earthbending and inventing metalbending was fine, but the whole lie-detector thing was a bit too much. Also I’m not sure how she was able to defend against rocks thrown at her if she couldn’t see them. Also I still wish Mai and Ty Lee could’ve taken part in the final battle somehow. I think it would’ve been...

girlwhowasonfire: I have the hair and the skin tone and the smallness (for the most part…I’m not that skinny ha) for it, but if I’m going to do it, I want to do it all out. And I just don’t have the funds for a bow and arrow and a pin and fancy boots and stuff. I’ll do that for the premiere and I’ll go all out. If I still lived in Cincinnati I’d lend you a bow and arrows. But alas, my...
Right now tumblr is working better for me than Facebook. This world doesn’t make sense anymore.
Things I’m looking forward to in 2012… The Lorax The Secret World of Arrietty The Hunger Games Final Fantasy XIII-2 The Fault in our Stars JoCo Cruise Crazy II The Legend of Korra Doctor Who Season 7 Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Anything I need to be adding to this list?
Egyptians are protesting the police violence in Oakland.
“Your worship, I only came to know that I was being intimate with a donkey when I got arrested,” a 28-year-old Zimbabwe man told a magistrate on Monday. The man, who had been arrested for being intimate with a donkey, admitted the conduct in question but claimed that the donkey had not been a donkey when he met her at a nightclub last Saturday night, but rather a prostitute. ...
Oh hey, it’s post 666 on this blog.

Interestingly, the Greek hoplite/phalanx defense of Thermopylae never would have worked against the Romans. They would’ve been annihilated by ballistas and scorpios.
Xerxes at Thermopylae reminds me of Zapp Brannigan. You see, Killbots have a preset kill limit. Knowing their weakness, I sent wave after wave of my own men at them, until they reached their limit and shutdown.
There are some features that tumblr really needs. Like a “sent” box, that logs all the asks you’ve sent and all the questions you’ve privately responded to. Or the ability to authenticate users on private blogs by username *and* password, so you can either allow specific users access and/or let anyone with the password view it. And also the ability to follow private blogs...
runalovegood replied to your post: According to the Santa Fe New Mexican (that’s a… Insert horribly cheesy ‘go directly to jail’ joke here? The article mentioned that, but said, Most coverage of this story goes with some form of a “Go Directly to Jail” wisecrack, but that seems too easy. Now that I’m thinking about it, it does make me wonder why it’s constitutional...
According to the Santa Fe New Mexican (that’s a newspaper, not just some New Mexican I happen to know), a 60-year-old woman repeatedly stabbed her boyfriend after an argument that started after she accused him of cheating at Monopoly. Actually, the victim said she first hit him over the head with a glass bottle, and then the knife came out. He ended up in the hospital but is reportedly in...
I was listening to a German song and there was a line like “Ich kann sehen,” except the way she said it, I heard “Ich kann zehn.” I was confused for a minute.
troismerles: …I have a lot of stuff on my computer. Yet, I always whine when it tells me I’m running out of room. I should really just get an external hard drive. I should really get a full-time job.

I was driving to Skyline for lunch and passed “All Saints Catholic Church.” I had the sudden urge to make a graphic of “Worship ALL THE SAINTS.”
I’ll probably get like 75g of protein today. That sounds like a lot, but apparently a lot of people trying to gain weight/muscle recommend 1g of protein for every 1lb of bodyweight. I mean, I have a very light appetite, but I’m also a very light person. I can’t imagine weighing like 150lbs and trying to go 1-for-1 with that.
“Salad isn’t food, it’s what food eats.” -From my coworkers talking about lunch
This is one of the best tutorials to fix Internet Explorer problems I’ve ever read. More of those need to use anthropomorphized browsers in a classic fantasy setting as a metaphor for the real world issues you’re experiencing.
So I have this tech support ticket thingy. And I have 3 coworkers, A, B, and C. ‘A’ forwards me a message saying the issue was fixed in one place but needs to also be fixed in another. The ticket’s history indicates ‘B’ didn’t have anything to do with the fix. I ask ‘C’ what the fix was, and he says it was a change made by either ‘A’ or...
I really need to work on the wiki this weekend. It’s been partially-broken and very much neglected for a while. Runa also brought up the subject of hankgames, so it might be time to start considering adding non-vlogbrothers videos to it. Some thoughts, transcribing all of hankgames would be a huge undertaking, and while it’s be awesome if it happened, I think certain playlists or...
I’m bored. The only thing I have to look forward to tonight is doing the dishes, and that’s not something I look forward to. Meh. I scheduled skydiving earlier, but it won’t be for another two weeks.
I don’t like eating at other people’s houses. I don’t mind going over and doing other things, or eating something like pizza, but I really don’t like going to someone’s house and eating a “normal” dinner.
But seriously, the fact that if you combine Katniss and Peeta one way you get KatPee, and the other way you get PeeNiss, is one of the best things ever.
I should read more poetry. I didn’t have any interest in it until AP Brit Lit, when we read poems that I actually enjoyed. Maybe start with Tennyson, because The Lady of Shalott reminded me of this.

I have friend that went there. Although, #1 on that list, OSU… lots of friends that went there / are still going there.

A public school teacher in Vancouver, Wash., Decker and his wife lived below the poverty line until they decided to go back to school to become educators. He sent in a post because he wanted to share his story. “We didn’t go through all that struggle while raising three kids to support people who don’t feel they need to work or people who feel they are entitled to something...
The more the US manages to pass ridiculous laws, the more commonplace it’s going to be to break those laws. I’m not sure if congress realizes that passing things like PROTECT IP is just going to 1) piss people off, and 2) make people lose respect for congress, the government as a whole, and the law itself. You know how many people on tumblr are watching shows on megavideo and other...

Of course there’s always the chance anything could cause that, but what’s most relevant now is whether that reason in particular could cause another. yes.
