#1 I de-friended this kid ages ago to get rid of this crap on my facebook page. But its still pops up because of facebook shitty settings (someone I am friends with liked his status, and now I can see it? ????)
#2 This is the very epitome of THANKS OBAMA I think I have ever seen.
#3 Ebola spreads rapidly in countries without proper infrastructure, healthcare, resources to clean water etc etc. I THINK DALLAS CAN HANDLE ITSELF.
#4 I can’t even right now. Like. Can’t even.
#5 This is why I am a raging liberal on facebook. Because I went to high school with people who religiously watch Fox News and blame Obama for everything.
NIMONA came to an end today as a webcomic, but it will live again in print form from HarperCollins in May of 2015! There will be bonus material, extra and revamped pages, and an exclusive book-only epilogue. Click to reserve a copy for yourself!
NIMONA is honestly one of the best webcomics I have ever read. It ended today, and my heart broke a little.
Basically they’re saying ‘come to papa.’ Why are we helping them? Why are we falling right into their trap? One of the things that Osama bin Laden said when he was alive was, ‘Hey look we don’t think we can defeat you militarily, we’re not stupid. We just want to drain you of all your money as you spend trillions of dollars fighting us.’ It’s hard to kill us when we’re here in America, it’s easier to kill us when we’re right there in Iraq and Syria. Chelsea Manning saying based on the intelligence work that she used to do, remember that’s why we got the Wikileaks files that we did, said that an interesting way to fight ISIS might be to let them govern for a while. Cause then that would turn the local population against them, because they are hideous, and if you behead enough people the locals go ‘hey, you know what? I didn’t like it when my uncle was beheaded.’ Then they lose the support in the local population, making it easier to defeat them. Instead, we’re gonna go in and bomb the local population, their gonna put out videos like this and then their gonna say ‘you see that? it’s us vs them.’ The question is HOW do you fight them. Here’s whats going to happen to the American government once they see the video: Hook, line, and sinker - we’re gonna fall right for it.
This week, India became the first Asian nation to reach Mars when its orbiter entered the planet’s orbit on Wednesday — and this is the picture that was seen around the world to mark this historic event. It shows a group of female scientists at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) congratulating one another on the mission’s success.
The picture was widely shared on Twitter where Egyptian journalist and women’s rights activist Mona El-Tahawy tweeted: “Love this pic so much. When was the last time u saw women scientists celebrate space mission?”
In most mission room photos of historic space events or in films about space, women are rarely seen, making this photo both compelling and unique. Of course, ISRO, like many technical agencies, has far to go in terms of achieving gender balance in their workforce. As Rhitu Chatterjee of PRI’s The World observed in an op-ed, only 10 percent of ISRO’s engineers are female.
This fact, however, Chatterjee writes, is “why this new photograph of ISRO’s women scientists is invaluable. It shatters stereotypes about space research and Indian women. It forces society to acknowledge and appreciate the accomplishments of female scientists. And for little girls and young women seeing the picture, I hope it will broaden their horizons, giving them more options for what they can pursue and achieve.”
okay tbh the most exhausting thing about being a feminist is when one of your dude friends goes “are you a feminist?” for w/e reason and you’re like “yeh” & they take that as an invitation to debate you on every tired argument they’ve ever heard on 4chan
like please stop making my existence a debate, i’m just trying to eat this take-out and watch re-runs of project runway
