How to spot a nerd: See if they’re wearing this,
then take their lunch money
I think you meant, then see if they want to have an in-depth conversation about it. Because taking their lunch money makes you a bully.
And being a bully makes you an asshole.
I had a job interview today at the uni bookshop. I think it went well, but idk. Before I went I took some Rescue Remedy, which is like a natural remedy thing for stress. But the thing is we mostly use it for the cats, cause they freak out when we take them to the vet.
So I spent my whole interview thinking “I can’t believe I took cat medicine - oh man do I look like someone whose taken cat medicine? - OH GOD WHO HIRES SOMEONE WHO TAKES CAT MEDICINE”

Donald Glover will be voicing Miles Morales as Spider-Man in the upcoming Disney XD series.
"The new season of Disney XD’s animated series Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors will take Peter Parker through various parallel worlds, including one where he meets Miles Morales, his half-Hispanic, half-black counterpart, voiced by Glover. The season premieres Sunday (9 a.m. ET/PT), and the "Spider-Verse" arc of episodes airs next year."

This show is gold.
What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he doesn’t have any additional expenses. This is a reward. He’s getting a $250,000 reward for murdering an unarmed black kid.
HE HAD TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL. MIKE REACHED FOR HIS GUN. HIS FRIEND THAT WAS WITH HIM EVEN ADMITTED THAT HE LIED ABOUT THE COP JUST RANDOMLY SHOOTING HIM AND CONFIRMED THAT THEY ROBBED THE STORE. SELF DEFESE.
None of this is true. This is how good the Ferguson PD’s smear campaign has been. Not one sentence here is accurate. Let’s break this down:
- "HE HAD TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL." Michael Brown’s autopsy showed no sign of struggle.The picture of the CT scan that’s being passed around to show that Wilson had an orbital blowout fracture is actually from 2008 from the University of Iowa, and a right-wing pundit photoshopped out the date and hospital info.
- "MIKE REACHED FOR HIS GUN." Officer Wilson’s story is that the first shot that went off was an accidental discharge while they were fighting over the gun. However. there was no gunpowder residue on Mike Brown, meaning that he was absolutely not holding the gun when it went off and furthermore that he was not even that close. He was fired on from a distance.
- "HIS FRIEND THAT WAS WITH HIM EVEN ADMITTED THAT HE LIED ABOUT THE COP JUST RANDOMLY SHOOTING HIM AND CONFIRMED THAT THEY ROBBED THE STORE." This is actually a compound lie, which is kind of impressive. His friend, Dorian Johnson, did not say that. His lawyer said they were together in the convenience store, the police said there was a robbery, and the media put those two statements next to each other to imply a statement was made that never was. Johnson isn’t being charged with anything because the Ferguson PD “determined he committed no crime." The Ferguson PD also admitted Officer Wilson didn’t know about the scuffle at the convenience store before he stopped Brown and Johnson. You may be wondering why I say scuffle instead of robbery. That’s because there wasn’t one: the owners of the store didn’t call the police and video shows Brown paying for the cigarillos! The clerk confronted Brown about reaching across the counter instead of waiting for him to hand over the cigarillos, he put his hand on Brown, and Brown pushed him. Yes, he pushed him too hard, but the clerk apparently didn’t care enough to call the police. The police were called by another customer in the store, who apparently didn’t know what was actually happening.
- "SELF DEFESE." The autopsy shows that he was shot on the inside of his arm, meaning his hands were up, and the top of his head, meaning that, since Brown was 6’4”, either he was on his knees or the officer was 8’ tall. The officer was not 8’ tall.
The evidence clearly shows that Officer Wilson, who had no idea of the not-actually-a-robbery, executed the unarmed Mike Brown while he was on his knees with his hands in the air. Just like all of the eyewitnesses said (except for “Josie,” who turned out not to be real).
But the Ferguson PD’s already tainted public opinion. They’ve spread so many lies so effectively that no amount of evidence will bring justice. Your ignorance here is proof of just how effective it’s been.
For artists, students, anyone - get your shit in order the fun and easy way with HabitRPG
If you’re like me, you have about 5 million things to do at any given time. Maybe you also intend to practice a skill or do something every once in a while to get better at it, but you keep putting it off because you just never remember, among other things. Maybe you have a shitload of assignments and projects due and it’s hard to keep track. Maybe, like me, your short-term memory is basically non-existant.
Good news - there’s this (free!) thing called HabitRPG that can help you out. It’s fun, charming, and extremely easy to use - you map out habits and things to do and get rewarded for accomplishments! It basically makes your life into a little videogame.
I’ve been using it for a few days, and I’ve gotten my friends to use it, and it’s already helped us all immensely. Check this out:
You can make parties to see your friends’ progress, which is hells of cool. You can make lists of all the things you need to do, and when you do something, you gain gold and experience, which can go towards buying things from a shop - weapons, armor, potions - or even your own custom reward (Cake, anyone?) while missing something will drain your HP a little.
You can set things to be done on certain days, or even during certain times! And you can set the day to begin at a certain time as well - for me, it’s 7 am - 7 am!
You can customize your character and profile, and the community and devs are strong and responsive as well.
You can even “check in” at the Tavern in game if you’re going on vacation or the like, so you won’t be penalized for missing a few days! The lead dev is also pretty active on Twitter and a seriously nice dude - check him out here! New things and fixes are constantly being rolled out, which is also very nice - the dev support for HabitRPG is seriously awesome.
I seriously could not recommend this more, it’s absolutely amazing. It’s super fun, and in the last few days I’ve accomplished more work and creative practice (and drank more water), than I have in the last two weeks combined. It makes everything less overwhelming, and more of a challenge that you know you can beat.
Give it a shot, and if you like it, let your friends and followers know about it - I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!
