Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.

I’ve gotten more angry asks about this post than I have actual reblogs.

I literally put my coffee down, stared at the screen and said “Holy shit…”

Fuck.

this is still my favorite post ever

In all my years of reblogging shit, this has got to be the best picture to grace the page of tumblr. I don’t know why but this picture makes me very emotional.

It’s everything I ever wanted for that little table.

Americans have a better chance of being shot by the police or a toddler with a gun than contracting Ebola. Can we please dial down the media hysteria?

I was talking about this yesterday at work. You are literally about 10,000 times more likely to die from a bullet than from Ebola.

When sharing that, some people said, “well now I’m scared of being shot!”

"Good," I said. "You should be."

The Charles River in Massachusetts is named for King Charles I, who was later executed by beheading. This event is commemorated each year by the Head of the Charles Regatta where barges bearing large effigies of Charles’ decapitated head process down the river … I’m sorry, actually they don’t do that at all. It’s just a rowing competition, but it’s still pretty cool.

Every time I complain about reboot Kirk characterization, people are like, “Well, it’s an alternate universe. Don’t you think that Kirk losing his dad might have changed his personality and given him some daddy issues, making him a bit of a womanizer?” And I mean yeah whatever…
