Our culture is NOT for sale. Stop Disney from trademarking Day of the Dead!
“That Disney intends to make money off the name of a cultural holiday celebrated by millions of people of Mexican and Central American heritage is awful enough. That they intend to file for ownership of the name and tradition is downright unacceptable and incredibly offensive.”
Spread this like wildfire, guys.
plot twist: the name of the doctor is slim shady.
it’s funny because men’s rights activists will ask feminists to educate them in an attempt to look more mature but when a feminist educates them they go sit in a corner and whine about how they are being punished for being straight white men

Nice defensive coloring, little nudibranch!
When you’re four centimeters long and soft-bodied, you have to protect yourself somehow. Nudibranchs or sea slugs, like many soft marine animals, employ a lot of visual and chemical defenses. Bright colors can work a couple of different ways: if they are the same color as the coral or whatever you are sitting on, they help you blend in and avoid detection. In other cases, bright, visible coloring warns predators that you contain noxious or toxic chemicals. Which is often the case if, like this individual, you feed on hydroids.
Check out the other colors in our Nudibranch gallery.

This scene made me really happy….
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has introduced her first piece of legislation. It’s called the Bank on Students Loan Fairness Act, and would reduce the rate students pay on federally-subsidized student loans for one year, from 3.4% to 0.75%.
Without congressional action, on July 1 the rate is set to double from 3.4% to 6.8%.
Warren brings up an interesting point – her bill simply asks students to pay the same rates that big banks pay for borrowing.
She’s literally just asking if college grads can get the same deal as bank CEOs. The exact same interest rate. Not even a bailout or anything fancy (pipe dreams!) - just the same interest rate.
BLESS YOU ELIZABETH WARREN.
YOU GOTTA FIGHT! FOR OUR RIGHT! To pay no interest on our bullshit college loans.
I wish politicians gave as much of a shit about us as Elizabeth Warren does.
I wanna ruin our friendship
We should be lovers instead
I don’t know how to say this
‘cause you’re really my dearest friend
