I am God, and there is a procedure that computes the absolute value of the sense data
100,000 notes and I wonder how many people realise this line was improvised by a 7 year old
I think most of us guessed it when we saw the “people from liverpool” bit.
The mayor of Mississauga, Canada is a badass. via

But women aren’t strong leaders… OH WAIT.

This woman is officially my new hero.
In regards to the flooding in the GTA yesterday, she apparently said that she hasn’t seen rain like that since her neighbour Noah was building a boat.
New hero in life.
What do you mean how did they get away with it?
History isn’t one straight line progressing towards a liberal society.
Look how much Americans attitudes have changed between 1980 and today. 1980 was the first time most very religious people voted, they abstained before that at the behest of their churches. Now they dictate policy at every election.
In my family photo album there are pictures from the 20s of a woman called ‘uncle bob’. She dressed in men’s clothing, and had a ‘companion’. This was a rough industrial town, they were working class, nobody cared. It was her business.
This is why politics is important - the moment you think everything is better today than it was in the past, you let other people take control of the direction society goes in - with you sitting back presuming we’re going forwards.
reblogging for the commentary
At work the other week, a colleague asked why people even bothered to hold on to outdated views. He believed that as soon as people came up with a better idea, we would abandon all of our old baggage and adopt it.
It’s important to never forget that history isn’t a series of steps from a dark past to an enlightened future. What we do, what language we use, and what we are willing to accept as right and proper have consequences. Collectively we decide what our future looks like. Live the future you want to create.
11d 6h 57m: Red returns to Pallet Town
It’s a little late since by now we’ve already beaten the Elite Four, but I’ve been thinking a lot about Twitch Plays Pokemon since I started following the playthrough. I like to believe Red was given a Charmander as a pre-trained Pokemon to help him/his mom with some badly progressing illness while Oak helped find a cause and/or a treatment. I’d imagine it would have been hard on his mother after he disappeared on his journey, and I like to think it was a really nice moment when he returned home safe and sound before heading off to Cinnabar. Now he’s gone and done what some thought impossible—he’s become the Champion. You did it, Red. We’re all so proud of you.
