I swear to god, if I see another person harping on about Ricardo’s parents being “100% European”, I will reach through their screen, rip out their tongue and strangle them to death with it. Fucking jackasses.
justaguywitharrows: aforaffort: officialsmallcat: So on the off chance that this will actually work… We made a gofundme account for Small Cat’s surgery because we really can’t afford it. Click here the gofundme page for this jerk: So I now have a whopping bill of nearly $2000 in medical expenses for this cat: x-rays, blood work, urine analysis, and finally surgery… all on my credit...

bluejaybirdie: clubjade: nolongersunday: As a dedicated Star Wars fan, I frequently check the page for news. Today when I checked, I found the most exciting thing! Kathleen Kennedy has been announced with celebration as the President of LucasFilms and Producer of Episode VII.

10 Totally Different TV Shows that Doctor Who Has... →
Doctor Who hasn’t just taught us how to save the universe — the British time-travel show has also lasted a fantastic 32 seasons. How did a little show about a man in a magic phone box achieve this feat? By changing its format drastically. Doctor Who is perhaps the most flexible show on television — even the magic phone box has been done away with, on occasion. The Doctor can go anywhere,...
The Central Problem With Steven Moffat's Doctor... →
nudityandnerdery: I think this is pretty spot on. It doesn’t address all of the issues I have with the show recently (primarily the inconsistency in characterization, the treatment of the characters, and the sheer frequency of dropped plots) but it nails one of the big problems I hadn’t been able to put into words.
All shootings aren't created equal?
jkottke: American tragedies don’t occur on the southside of Chicago or the New Orleans 9th Ward. They don’t occur where inner city high school kids shoot into school buses or someone shoots at a 10-year old’s birthday party in New Orleans. Or Gary, Indiana. Or Compton. Or Newport News. David Dennis asks (and answers) a compelling question: Why isn’t the New Orleans Mother’s Day parade...

hamburgerjack: duelswords: lostintrafficlights: The 16-year-old high school student who was arrested after causing a small explosion on school grounds will not be charged with a crime. GOOD. Thank god! They went after her because they thought no one had her back. That’s the problem. They go after Black children like this every damn day.
Why isn't New Orleans Mother's Day parade shooting... →
stfuconservatives: “So I shouldn’t be surprised that the Mother’s Day Parade shooting has largely been forgotten. On Sunday, shots were fired into a crowd during a parade in the New Orleans 7th ward. Police said they saw three suspects running from the scene. This is the largest mass shooting in the United States where the shooters were still at large after the crime was committed. Think about...

northstarfan: When Republicans appointed Pablo Pantoja to State Director of Florida Hispanic Outreach for the Republican National Committee, they hoped he would be able to bridge the sizable gap that only expanded during the 2012 elections, when the state’s 4.3 million Hispanic voters supported Barack Obama over Mitt Romney by a 20 percent margin. But after months of inaction by Congressional...
PSA: The deadly flower in my Mother's Day bouquet.
kyrax2: I want to write a quick note to everyone, because this is something I didn’t know, and I really, really wish I had. A dear friend gave me a lovely bouquet for Mother’s Day. Included among the flowers were a couple of stargazer lilies. You all know what lilies look like, they’re those trumpet-shaped flowers in pink or white or orange, with lots of pollen. If you’re not positive,...

Lilies kill cats. Pass it on.
kyrax2: I got word from the vet about an hour ago. My cat’s kidney numbers are “off the charts”. In every other way, she is fine - heart, lungs, even her empty little stomach, but her kidneys are failing, even as I type this. The *only* possible treatment would be a full dialysis - the same kind humans get. It would cost $10,000 for the *first* week, and last, oh, three to five weeks,...
