you’re welcome.





many of the things wrong with the world can be summed up in this comment

how do people still find this joke funny? 

Sandwich jokes are a product of men feeling intimidated by women who are smarter, stronger, or more successful than they are.

Quit posting absolute bullshit and get over the fact that a fucking criminal was put to rest that day. If he would have never stole from the store, he most likely wouldn't have had contact with police that day. If he would have never assaulted the officer and reached for his gun, he wouldn't have took a bullet to the skull. #justicehasbeenserved


Even if he stole Rellos, would he get the death penalty? No.

Even if he stole an officer’s gun, would he get the death penalty? No.

Even if he punched a cop, would he get the death penalty? No.

Never mind the end of that video shows Mike Brown paying for his Rellos.

Never mind the store owner said there was no robbery and that no one working for him reported it.

Never mind the police chief said Darren Wilson did not know Mike Brown was a “suspect” in a robbery — he was stopped for walking in the street versus on the sidewalk.

Never mind the autopsy report that says he was shot from nearly 35ft away.

Never mind that report shows wounds consistent with him being shot with his hands in the air.

Ultimately, you have one White cop who gunned down yet another unarmed Black man, a police force that has not been at all forthcoming with any answers, and a Black community tired of their children being murdered for shit as simple as walking down the street. That same police force (accompanied by National Guard and Missouri Highway Patrol) has used violence to try to quell peaceful protest.

When looting broke out, the people in that community banded together to PROTECT local businesses from the looters who looked a fuckton like your shitstain self.

Here’s a newsflash, cockwagon: If you stole Rellos, your ass might spend a few hours in a holding cell. You might stay overnight. But you’re never gonna be thought of as a suspect right off the bat by a cop when you’re just walking down the street with a pal. You’re never gonna have to worry if your hoodie makes you suspect. You’re never gonna have to wonder if a traffic stop is going to end in your murder.

And if you go all mass shooter on us, which White boys like yourself are wont to do, rest assured your legacy will be burnished with sympathetic interviews bemoaning how such a good boy went wrong. The media will not pour through your social media profiles looking for the most “thug” picture of you mean mugging for the camera. In fact, if you have a gun selfie on your Facebook, you’re just standing up for your Second Amendment rights. Of course you’re not a thug like THOSE people, amirite?

Also, you’ll be a hell of a lot more likely to be taken alive after committing mass murder than a young Black man who was simply suspect for walking down the street, or holding his wallet, or who fit the description — that catchall justification beloved by policemen everywhere. Or even a young Black woman seeking help after a car crash. If you pound on a stranger’s door, you’re getting a ambulance instead of a bullet in the face.

Take your impotent Wonderbread™ White supremacist opinions elsewhere, son, because I am fresh out of fucks to give and won’t be restocking any time soon.

P.S. Your wrong as fuck hashtag up there means as much as your opinions. I think you forgot how to internet.

As for a movie with a non-white lead; if Marvel makes Thor 3 before it makes Black Panther, it will have made ten movies headlined by blond white men named Chris before it makes one movie headlined by someone who isn’t even white. (They can cast a black actor named Chris. That’s totally OK.)

Stop sexualizing my body stop shaming my body stop policing my body







  • ORGANS!!!

source: X



Breasts are mammary organs, meaning their true and primary purpose is to nurse babies.

I’ll repeat that for the slow people in the class, you warthog-faced buffoon.

Breasts are mammary sacks. They are meant to feed babies, just like a cow’s udder. They aren’t sexual organs. They aren’t classified as such in biology texts (certainly none of the ones I checked out to answer this post)

Men have breasts, you pile of refuse. Their breasts are smaller than women’s, but they possess the same mammary glands and, properly stimulated, can produce milk. Men can get breast cancer. They can develop larger breasts due to excessive hormones. Their breasts are exactly like a women’s breast, except that since their testicles produce testosterone in high degree, they don’t have enough female hormones in their bodies to start lactating.

So, you pile of putrescence, you’re probably thinking, “If breasts aren’t sex organs then how come guys get horny looking at them and women get turned on by playing worth them, huh?”

The answers to both are so terribly simple that you might just be able to follow them if you pay attention, pig.

Men are enticed by breasts because they’re not allowed to see them. Women are sensitive because stimulation triggers two responses - bonding hormones and lactation.

In case you’re too simple to get this, I’ll break it down further for you. In cultures where breasts are viewed daily, they don’t do much to get a guy hot and bothered. There are hundreds of paintings from the renaissance period and earlier depicting women nursing babies, especially images of the Blessed Virgin nursing Christ, and none of these have ever been considered provocative, because that’s what boobs are for. Meanwhile, in cultures where everyone from baby sister to great-great grandma walk around topless because the weather will kill them otherwise, dudes don’t get raging erections every time they see a breast. They don’t find boobs enticing the way men do in America, where boobs are considered shameful and need to be hidden.

As for women getting aroused by their boobs being played with, you brainless donkey, a woman’s body responds to get nipples bring touched by flooding her body with bonding hormones that help her attach to get babies - you know, the people her breasts are actually supposed to be used by - and hormones that get her glands making milk. Also, please note that many women with large breasts don’t feel any stimulation when fondled, meaning they aren’t sensitive enough to get off on having their boobs played with.

Do me a favor and GET THE FUCK OVER YOURSELF YOU PURITANICAL ASS! My breasts are NOT SEXUAL ORGANS. They are lactation organs designed for my use and my baby’s use. Not for any man’s use or pleasure.

You inconsiderate space herpe.


The night of August 19th, 2014 was not without some struggles, but was still refreshingly peaceful by recent Ferguson standards.

There was only a few moments of tension, and the police did have to use some forms of crowd control, including rubber bullets and some mace. To many protesters’ relief, no tear gas was used.

Tonight saw the isolation and arrest of various violent individuals, now mostly known as “agitators”. Many of the arrested agitators were revealed to be out-of-towners who appeared to have purposefully gathered to spur the situation towards violence.

Community leaders and peacemakers played an invaluable part in keeping the peace, rising spectacularly to the challenge; at one point, many linked hands and formed a human wall between protesters and police.

Earlier in the protests, a Thomas the Tank Engine Peace Train was driving through, adding a whimsical touch. Unfortunately, it was ordered away by police officers.

A rising concern seems to be the handling of media and the media staging areas (“media pens”), and the growing amount of media personnel on the ground — while intentions appear to be good all around, the sheer amount of people covering the situation has made things unruly. Hopefully there will a solution soon.

It is expected that protesters will be gathering again in the morning for important developments in the Michael Brown case. We can only hope that their patience and grief will see some reward.

The Truth About Fake Blood - Frankenstein MD Episode 2

It seems like no matter how many blood drives we have, hospitals never have enough blood to go around. To solve this problem, scientists have been trying to create synthetic blood for decades. And since we keep on having blood drives, you can probably guess that scientists still haven’t succeeded. But at least we get cookies when they stick us, eh?

In episode 2 of Frankenstein MD, Victoria introduces some of the basic principles behind the engineering of synthetic blood products. Much like we’ve done to create everything from insulin to diesel fuel, scientists have employed recombinant DNA technology to create human hemoglobin within E. coli bacteria, the microscopic workhorses of biotechnology.

I gotta say, I love how casually we tend to discuss recombinant DNA these days, as if it’s as simple as making toast. While it’s a fairly routine molecular biology procedure, it’s important to remember that we are cutting and splicing the DNA fabric of life like biological wizards, and that’s amazing.

First, the gene for hemoglobin is inserted into the bacterial cell. Or really, it’s genes, plural, since human hemoglobin is a tetramer, a macromolecule made up of two pairs of related, but slightly different globin molecules. The bacteria make oodles of human protein, we pop ‘em open, purify it, and reconstitute the oxygen-carrying portion of human blood. Simple, right?

Problem is, bacteria process their proteins slightly differently than we do, modifying them with little molecular tags that our bodies recognize as foreign. Our immune system mounts a response, which can be deadly. SO far recombinant blood substitutes are still pretty toxic (although work continues).

Some scientists are trying to get around our body’s tendency to reject recombinant blood by developing completely synthetic oxygen carrier molecules that don’t need to be biologically synthesized by bacteria. This science is promising, and word on the science street is that it is ready to be put in real patients

Beyond all that sciencey mumbo-jumbo, this episode sees Victoria come face-to-face with the challenges of being a female scientist, whether it’s having to try just that little bit harder to get noticed or treated fairly by male scientists and administrators (like Dr. Krempe), or carrying the burden of family needs and professional desires, a choice that no female scientists should have to make. It seems like Dr. Waldman is on her side, and treats her with honest respect, though.

I have a feeling it’s not the last time Victoria will be facing these issues…


A Democratic Missouri state senator representing parts of Ferguson who tweeted multiple times “fuck you,” at Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon defended her choice of words on Fox News Monday saying she did so because she was tear-gassed for three days.

“The reason why I used profane language is because he has allowed us to get tear-gassed for three days,” Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal said. “I am one of his senators in his party and he was at the state fair enjoying a country concert while we were getting teargassed and shot at. And yes, anyone who’s going to get teargassed deserves to say a few ‘F’ bombs here and there.”

“I represent my constituents, not Gov. Nixon,” the senator said. “He has been absent from the minority community his entire career and only comes before us when it is politically expedient for him. Or when he’s running for office, and because he has been outside of this community…let me tell you this, and this is important for your audience to know. He has still yet to come to ground zero. Yet to come to ground zero. He’s been in Florissant, he’s been in Normandy, but he has not spoken to the victims of the crisis we are dealing with and that is why I have called him a coward.”
