sorry if I’m off topic but I’m so sick of people characterizing violent crime as “musta been mental illness” it throws us mentally ill people under the bus by perpetuating the stereotype that we’re dangerous

cant we just say there was something going on with that one guy?

ur totally right, many men don’t react violently when faced with rejection.

it was only this one guy.

We’re a goddamn bad TV podcast and we ever tell you otherwise, you punch us in the face. We watched the infamously terrible episode of The Newsroom “I’ll Try To Fix You” and we’re on a mission to criticize.

Your hosts @maurae, @lafergs, and @kaceybange are joined by special guest @ohseafarer on their downward spiral.

I’m testing my new headphones and this particular test is weirding me right the fuck out. How does sound do this.

OH MY GOD DON’T DO THE BINAURAL TEST ON THIS PAGE IF YOU’RE HOME ALONE AND/OR EASILY STARTLED 

“IN A GRAVEYARD in the village of Weybridge, Vermont, stands an unusual headstone. It is inscribed with the names of two women, Sylvia Drake and Charity Bryant, who were born during the Revolutionary era and died in the middle of the 19th century. The women were pillars of their community for four and a half decades … They were also, according to their own understanding and that of those around them, a married couple.”

Historian Rachel Hope Cleves uncovers the fascinating story of same sex marriage in Vermont, 1807. (via oupacademic)

Book is called “Charity & Sylvia: A Same-Sex Marriage in Early America” (Oxford University Press)”

Grindr users on Scottish independence

machotrouts:

I’ve spent the past couple of days asking several hundred Grindr users in Edinburgh whether they believe Scotland should be an independent country. Replies were of variable quality. Here is a representative sample:

STATISTICS:

The number of people I’ve questioned who are still present in my Grindr message history – that is, excluding the many people who blocked me – appears to add up to 655. I’ve divided their reactions into…


NO: 114

YES: 101

Undecided: 24

Other opinion: 20

Indifference: 15

Evasion: 38

Bemusement: 13

Amusement: 2

Too horny to answer: 6

General rejection: 4

Did not respond: 318


So there you have it. When only decisive opinions are taken into account, Grindr votes NO to independence, with a 54-46% split. If this is reflected in the results of tomorrow’s referendum, we can assume the headless torsos have taken over Scotland and there’s nothing you can do to stop it.


(The eagerly anticipated machotrouts.tumblr.com endorsement goes to a YES vote. I am a headful torso.)

Conflict of Interest: MSNBC commentator Goldie Taylor just found out that St. Louis Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCulloch has a conflict of interest in the Michael Brown murder investigation. McCulloch is the Vice President of the pro-police organization The BackStoppers Inc., the same organization that ran one of the Support Officer D. Wilson GoFundMe page.
