"bisexuals have straight passing privilege"
did you mean bi erasure ?
having people constantly assume im straight or gay based on who im dating or how I dress isn’t a privilege. it’s degrading and ignorant.

"ARE YOU USING………METAPHORS"

So does "Hannibal" have a cliche, super-prolonged, 'will they, won't they' thing with Hannibal and Will; but instead of wondering if they'll hook up, we're wondering if Hannibal will kill Will and eat his flesh?

sin-sational:

Yes, basically. I mean Hannibal isn’t going to be killed obviously but we’re all rooting for him to confess his love to Will—the only one who can truly understand Hannibal—before he eats him. Hanni is a little not-so-great at the social thing.

Yeah, I can see how being how cannibal could make that hard.

BOOM

i remember being really annoyed when a guy was like “um, you’re too wet and it doesn’t feel tight anymore” like umm i’m wet because i’m aroused and that is how it is supposed to be? do you want me to not be aroused??

Shit like this is why women is sub-Saharan Africa are putting harmful drying agents in their vaginas, increasing their chance of infections, including HIV.

The cultural and patriarchal aspects of dry sex practices are evident in the main motivation reported: to enhance men’s sexual pleasure and to increase their libido. They are also illustrated in popular understandings that denigrate female sexuality (including female bodily fluids), and are seen in constructions of the ideal female body as virginal and chaste.

Scorgie et al. report the belief that a women’s pain during sex “is tolerated or overshadowed by the greater need or desire to please their partners.”(22) Women are culturally expected to endure pain and forfeit their own sexual pleasure for the sexual pleasure of their male partners. Ideas about appropriate sexuality are based on men’s sexual expectations. Similarly, a Zairian woman explains that she derives emotional pleasure knowing that her husband experiences sexual pleasure during dry sex: “When the vagina has too much liquid, the man is not satisfied, so how can the woman be satisfied? Impossible!”(23)”-[X]

I'm guessing the whole Hobbit insult was due to the fact the dude was short, or funny-looking, or just a basement dweller who was an enthusiast of Fantasy adventures. While Hobbits are indeed cool their physical traits are not that desirable to the women depicted in the video.

I know. The “joke” (which obviously failed) in my response was supposed to be that Hobbits are so bad-ass that such a comparison didn’t make sense to me. I am, in reality, well aware of the more typical views on hobbits.

As Bashir’s teddy bear, Kukalaka, has been a somewhat popular topic in the DS9 tag, I wanted to capture this moment from the end of In The Cards.

BTW, Memory Alpha has this to say about the origin of the name:

The name of Kukalaka was chosen by René Echevarria. However it came from a mistake on his part. According to Echevarria, he thought Kukalaka was the name of his best friend’s invisible childhood friend, but after the friend saw the episode he informed Echevarria that Kukalaka was actually the name of a cat belonging to an ex-girlfriend of his.

bspolitics:

As one of the commentators over on Think Progress said, this is like charging people for growing their own food instead of buying it at the grocery store.

The statement from Oklahoma Gas and Electric Co. about “keeping it fair” seems particularly absurd. How is it “fair” to charge someone for not using your product - because when it comes down to it, that is precisely what is happening.

White people will believe anything if they think it’s a Native American proverb.

the only thing funnier than this video are the comments on it

But why does she call them hobbits? What the fuck did hobbits ever do to deserve that association? Hobbits burgled from Smaug. Hobbits sacked Isengard. Hobbits walked into Mordor, helped kill the Witch King, destroyed the one ring, then married Rosie Cotton and made buckets of babies. I’m in a stable long-term relationship and I would count my self fucking lucky to be compared to a hobbit.

Making a cup of fair trade, home roasted, freshly ground, vacuum brewed coffee is now on my bucket list. I want to drink the most pretentious cup of coffee ever. I’ll use real Alaskan glacier water, which I’ll boil using antique whale oil.

Russian “Ghost Car” video appears to be real.

Well that was a sentence I never expected to type.

Not that there’s anything supernatural happening in the video. It’s just a case of a dashboard camera and two other cars lining up in just the right way and just the right times.

Doubtful News (How am I just now finding out about this website?!) has combed through the chaotic hell that is YouTube comments, and pieced together a crowd-sourced analysis of the video

The events in question occurred on a rainy day, leaving the asphalt wet and shiny. Viewers note several reflections on and from the ‘ghost car’ and its lights that would be very hard to fake. It seems that the ‘ghost car” is a speeder running a red light, and it just so happens that the car in front of the camera-car is turning in such a way as to perfectly block the ghost car from the camera-car’s view as it crosses the intersection until the other cars suddenly put on the brakes.

I guess given the large number of dash cams in Russia, you’d expect something like this to happen eventually.

To assume that your one-in-a-million event is a miracle, is to seriously underestimate the number of things that there are.”-Tim Minchin
