writeswrongs: Hi, just your local Mayan here reminding you the world isn’t ending tomorrow. Also, that Mayans still exist. And finally, that we have a language that is still spoken, and written, and that our science and other studies have developed with time and we’re not some stone age group of savages carving shit into rocks for all eternity just so some iztacchuatl will find it and tell...
Hey, everyone collectively cursing the Mayans today: there is an entire culture of still living, breathing, self-identified Mayans who are super pissed that you’re denigrating them based on your own misunderstanding of an ancient calendar! A calendar that, if you cared to do any research at all you would know, has cycled four times before. Welcome to the Fifth Age! Which I thought was...

Rand Paul doesn't know what his state's biggest...
jecarter4: December 5, 2012 - During a radio interview with WMAL, Senator Rand Paul made several disparaging remarks about Ashley Judd. One of these remarks revealed something I think is more important than the Senator’s anti-Judd views: Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) doesn’t know what Kentucky’s biggest industry is. He says: She hates our biggest industry, which is coal, so I say, good luck...

The Maternity Leave Myth →
stfuconservatives: Hey, American uterus owners: want to be completely put off by the idea of ever procreating? Then read this expose in the NY Post about how many women have gotten screwed by our country’s Stone Age maternity leave policies. In Canada, you get 50 weeks of paid maternity leave. In England, you get 20 weeks paid. In Mexico, 12 paid. As a matter of fact, 178 countries around the...

So, I went looking for a story about Huma Abedin’s police protection because I was going to make a snarky comment about the consequences of Michelle Bachmann’s verbal diarrhea. Then I stumbled on this article from the New York Post and became frustrated for a whole other reason. Tell me, what’s wrong with this article? Do you see it? Do you see what the male author did...
Life is worth the risk →
I wrote a thing. I thank you in advance if you read it. Most proud of this quote: There’s a risk that comes with being alive no amount of security can protect you from; but it’s worth that risk just to be alive and to live.
STFU, Conservatives: Freedom of Speech →
stfuconservatives: HAHA I GUESS I’M NOT DONE GETTING APOLOGISTS IN MY ASKBOX! Ah, Freedom of Speech. A tenet of American democracy. A principle as noble and respectable today as it was in 1776. And even more importantly, every dudebro’s excuse for saying whatever the fuck they want without being criticized. … This is pretty much perfect.

I posted a new piece of flash fiction today! It was the first story I’ve written in… ugh… a long time. It’s a bizarre (read: silly) short adaptation of Snow White told from a third/first person perspective of the dashing prince after our dear heroine has consumed of the tarnished apple. It really is ludicrous so I’m certain you’ll enjoy it. :) Click the link...

The story of the weekend!
No, I’m not talking about the death of Kim Jong-il. That’s a pretty big deal, but I was more interested in a story that broke last night in which it was revealed that Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal has made a $500million investment in Twitter via his 95% owned Kingdom Holding Company. This is the same KHC which owns a 7% stake of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, the parent...
