Jessica Williams speaks with Sgt. Jasmine Jacobs about Army regulation AR 670-1

Jessica Williams and Travon (one of the staff writers) do it again!

Yeah. This is the problem. And it’s not just a problem in the army - school dress codes also often discriminate against natural African hair. This is racism, specifically it’s an aspect of the kind of racism that says that African hair is inferior to Caucasian hair - as opposed to simply being different.

How to catch an emu - Video

LET ME TELL YOU A THING

THIS IS A LEGIT THING

THIS IS LITERALLY WHAT PEOPLE DO TO GET EMUS TO COME CLOSE

Apparently you lie on the ground on your back and move your arms and legs.

And the emus are very curious and come over like, “The fuck is that.”

And that’s literally what it is. They come over wondering what the fuck you’re doing

This might be my favorite piece of information I have ever learned.

So like the dodo, which would come in profusion once they heard one squawk to see what was going on and if, perhaps, their friend could use a bit of help.

Cute little marshmallows 

this makes me so happy


Wait. Is that big marshmallow licking that little marshmallow?

Is it a… cannibal?

I think it’s the marshmallow’s mom and it’s trying to comfort the little marshmallow

Maybe it’s a habit specific to the marshmallow species

oh ok

"Come here, let me soothe you… OH MY GLOB, WE ARE DELICIOUS! This changes everything.

All X-Teams have radio/telepathic connection to one low level powered mutant who tracks the fliers and helps them orient themselves when flying in the air. It makes the low powered mutants be a part of something greater without risking lives needlessly.

THEY ENDED UP POSTING MY BLAND MARVEL HEADCANON!!!

I like these.  They definitely enrich the fictional world.  I would want to read a story about a psychic air traffic controller for superheroes.

The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that psychiatrists cannot reliably tell the difference between people who are mentally stable and those who are mentally unstable.

8 mentally stable people were granted admission into 12 different hospitals. They all told the same story of how they would hear a voice inside their head, it was unclear but often said “empty”, “hollow” and “thud”. 

Right after they were admitted, the patients stopped showing any signs of abnormality. They took part in activities and talked to faculty and other patients as they would normally. 

None of the psychiatrists ever stopped to say “I think they are getting better” or “they seem absolutely fine now” In fact, nurses and psychiatrists took normal activity such as walking or writing and attempted to represent it as a form of pathological behavior. 

For example, staff would point to patients waiting outside the lunchroom as a form of oral-acquisitive syndrome, when really they were just bored and were anticipating their meal. 

It’s interesting to note that even though staff didn’t recognize that these people were completely fine, patients recognized that they didn’t seem to have any problems.

This study highlights how powerful labels can be.

EVIL EXPERIMENT

Yeah, Tumblr, if you are going to “suggest” blogs to me whose names suggest that I be murdered, raped, mutilated, degraded, or otherwise harmed, I am going to click that X. Please either fix your algorithms or, better, STOP “SUGGESTING” BLOGS I DO NOT FOLLOW BY PLACING THEIR HATE ON MY DASHBOARD. If I wanted to follow them, I assure you I would on my own.
