Impossible to Spell

It's Personal

Is it trite and liberal of me if I roll my eyes when someone says the only way to truly free yourself from capitalism’s emotional grip is to maintain a deep personal loathing of your immediate supervisor at all times?

Asking for a friend.

This land being swallowed by the Gulf is home to half of the country’s oil refineries, a matrix of pipelines that serve 90 percent of the nation’s offshore energy production and 30 percent of its total oil and gas supply, a port vital to 31 states, and 2 million people who would need to find other places to live.

The landscape on which all that is built is washing away at a rate of a football field every hour, 16 square miles per year.

For years, most residents didn’t notice because they live inside the levees and seldom travel into the wetlands. But even those who work or play in the marshes were misled for decades by the gradual changes in the landscape. A point of land eroding here, a bayou widening there, a spoil levee sinking a foot over 10 years. In an ecosystem covering thousands of square miles, those losses seemed insignificant. There always seemed to be so much left.

Now locals are trying to deal with the shock of losing places they had known all their lives — fishing camps, cypress swamps, beachfronts, even cattle pastures and backyards — with more disappearing every day.

Fishing guide Ryan Lambert is one of them. When he started fishing the wetlands out of Buras 34 years ago, he had to travel through six miles of healthy marshes, swamps and small bays to reach the Gulf of Mexico. “Now it’s all open water,” Lambert said. “You can stand on the dock and see the Gulf.”

ziggins asked: Are you aware of the definition of gender? Being a "trans magical cat girl" makes the whole movement seem like a fun game for anyone to join in and play make believe. It isn't a trend, it isn't a fashion statement. It's something real people struggle with on a daily basis. I'm sorry your normal life doesn't make you feel special or oppressed enough, but this is reality. Stop making up problems for yourself that don't exist.

Look at this motherfucker’s blog:

Their name alone… “I dislike cis people”. That’s more discrimination and hate against me when I support the rights and advancement of true trans society. Does me being cis make me less of a person? That kind of hatred and discrimination shows a lot about what kind of person you are.

Apparently supporting trans people involves attacking trans people.

Dude, you’re cis. Shut the fuck up. Yes, being cis does make you less of a person. This is not true of all cis people, but it is definitely true for you. Stop showing your ass and mind your own fucking business. Stop harassing trans women with your shitty lying politics.

Does this dude have any idea how shitty his entry-level transmisogyny is here?

"You girls are so silly with your frivolous gender-having, knock it off so Important People with Serious Genders don’t have to be associated with you!"

Christ, dude. Just stop. Go away.

Dozens of police departments suspended for losing US military-grade weaponry
Close to 200 state and local police departments in the United States have been suspended for losing military-level equipment transferred to them by the Pentagon, a new investigation found.
According to the media outlet Fusion, its independent investigation into the Pentagon’s “1033 program,” which equips state and local police departments across the US with excess military equipment, turned up an alarming trend: Not only did many law enforcement agencies fail to comply with the program’s guidelines, they routinely lost dangerous weaponry.
Already, the investigation has found that police departments in Arizona, California, Mississippi, Missouri, Georgia, and others have lost or cannot account for various types of weapons. This list includes M14 and M16 assault rifles, .45-caliber pistols, shotguns, and even vehicles.

"they routinely lost dangerous weaponry"

The picture above is of a mushroom thats thought to be a specimen of Clathrus archeri right before its fingers open up. It closely resembles a hand coming out of the ground. It even has the remnants of its tattered sleeves attached to the wrist.
