Hemp is a Sensible, Sustainable, Highly-Industrializable Plant

We should utilize it. Hemp could solve many problems.

END PROHIBITION. It is NOT just about smoking.

YEP.

And you forgot a big one: it is excellent at trapping carbon! Plants pull the carbon dioxide out of the air, turn the carbons into other compounds and release the oxygen, thus cooling the planet.

This is perfect

My wife suffers from Emetophobia (fear of vomit) and together we created a new no spoiler movie site that gives people with phobias (spiders,snakes,clowns,puppets,dolls,vomit,needles,dentist,blood) the ability to watch movies without fear. We give you the when, how graphic and the duration of each scene that occurs in each movie.

evilupside said: Why the fuck would the government waste their time delaying gay marriage and abortion rights and whatever? Find a middle ground or LEGALIZE IT and move on. There are places being bombed and Americas not saying shit. I don't understand why the government is letting people go at each other's throats. As if it entertains them. No. Legalize it, when did you start taking each individual's opinion into consideration anywy? Then DO YOUR JOB STOP WASTIG TIME ON ISSUES THAT ALREADY HAVE A SOLUTION Right?

I literally have zero idea how long this has been in my inbox or why I received such an impassioned speech, but I agree more or less????

Ngl, I don’t have any good response to this.

Totally dig the enthusiasm, keep the dream alive yo.

One of the many great things about Some Like It Hot is that it totally recognises what it’s like for women to be objectified. The first time you see Sugar, it’s that iconic pan-up jello-on-springs shot, where she is just The Object. But Jerry and Joe almost immediately learn what it’s like to be the object of sexual harassment. And Jerry, who here wants to be “a bull again”, by the end of the film has embraced his Daphne persona and realised that femininity isn’t just something to be either objectified or rejected.

tl;dr this film says more interesting things about gender and sexual politics than most media today.

You don’t know how much I love this movie.

Biking (in America)

gravitationaltimothy:

I know this is out of nowhere, but I was just reminded of how weird it is to commute/travel on bike. I do, and I think I forget all the weird crap I have to go through just to get to work or the bank. There are laws and basic safety rules for both bike and car on the road, and I’m the only one who seems to know them (though that’s not so surprising, where are they going to hear them?) So I have to constantly compensate for their fear and hatred of me, even though I’m doing something healthy, enviro-friendly, and free.

I see other bikers sometimes, but they are at least 99% cyclists with full gear, obviously training. No one in this area considers a bike as transport. (Okay, I’m using hyperbole without data, I know, I’m being dramatic.) Cars veer into the middle of the road to avoid me even if I’m hugging the edge of the pavement trusting I won’t veer into the grass and fall. Some cars just slow down behind me, until I accept that they won’t pass until I make a full stop off the road. Honestly, I don’t know how often they understand the ‘left and right’ hand symbols, I keep being scared that they’re thinking I’m just giving them a ‘rock on’ fist bum when I turn right.

So in short, if you own a car and drive regularly: People above age 16 have to ride on the road. It is illegal to bike on sidewalks because you are a danger to pedestrians. We are technically vehicles, so we takes turns at 4-way stops exactly like a car. Please don’t honk or yell at us because we could be startled and veer into a car and die, which would suck. We follow all regular traffic laws, but we are on guard for risks, so we may stop if you’re pulling out of a street or driveway. 

And #1: If you are parked on a street, check for cyclists before opening your door! It’s our ichiban fear and we are not protected against it by America’s infrastructure. People die like this, and it’s hard to predict if a door will open or even if anyone is in a parked car.

Here’s why it’s a terrible idea to let your kids watch Fox News.
While commenting on a female perpetrator fleeing to Canada after committing statutory rape, a Fox correspondent said this:
"If you’re a sixteen-year-old kid and you have sex with your best friend’s mom you usually get high-fives."
And Jesse Watters didn’t stop there.
"She’s not that attractive so you might not have that kind of reception … She’s not Debra Lafave.” 
This isn’t the first time a man on Fox’s Outnumbered downplayed the seriousness of statutory rape. For reference, see: Tucker Carlson, who told America to "lighten up" on the crime and said that men understand that sexual harassment from a female teacher is the "greatest thing that ever happened." A month later he attacked a kid for reporting statutory rape as "whiny."
We’re seeing a trend here, and it’s Fox’s glorification of crimes against America’s youth. This is especially problematic when an estimated 1 in 6 men go through unwanted or abusive sexual experiences before they turn 18.

How rape culture handles male victims.
