White people are ghouls
This bothered me all morning. The idea that I live near people like this has been hanging over me for weeks and has literally leeched the energy and spirit from me.
But when I went to Google to learn more about what happened, it turned out that the bar was not advertising this. Instead, a customer wrote it and he was then thrown out the bar and banned for life.
The bar owner went on to say that he had a half-black son.
And that they ”drove through Ferguson yesterday and [he] … would be the last person to joke about Michael Brown.”
This alone doesn’t fix things. Someone still wrote those awful things on that sign. But hearing the rest of this story does make me feel a little less terrible.
Because what I really need to see more of right now is proof that people aren’t as awful as I’m starting to believe they are.

Huge Concerns Over New HIV Criminalization Law in Uganda
So, President Yoweri Museveni has just signed “The HIV and AIDS Prevention Control Act of 2014” into law in Uganda, and it’s a discrimination doozie. Here’s what it says:
- HIV+ people can get 10 years in prison plus a fine for “intentional transmission of HIV”
- Or, they’ll get 5 years in prison for “attempted transmission of HIV”
- There will be mandatory testing in Uganda for pregnant women
- And, the government will have the ability to release a person’s HIV status to the public without their consent.
what the fuck
Are you fucking kidding me? How fucking offensive is this shit?
in this weeks episode: “in the past we stormed your country, now we decided to steal your culture and traditions instead.”
and actual sikh man got ran the fuck over and dragged for 30 feet bc he was in a turban (and this is only one instance in the mile long list of hate crimes) but somehow this is okay?
Is that… is that even healthy?
There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.
I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.
nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.
In which case
(I like glowy things)
finally someone breaks it down for those of us who are makeup challenged.
