(I feel so horrible about this, but for as horrible as everything going on in Batwoman seems to be, I’m kinda glad that Kate and Maggie are breaking up.  I much prefer Kate/Renee… and I want more Renee in my life…)

(Sorry, Sam…)

So I’ve got friends on tumblr who are pregnant, and friends not on tumblr who are pregnant, and I’m just sitting here like:

The best part of babies is all the practice that goes into making one!  BROWN CHICKEN BROWN COW!!!!

Seriously though, I’ve got to keep my wife away from y’all.  I’m not at all ready to be responsible for a tiny human. I’m not at all ready to be responsible for a plant. I can’t keep plants alive. Holy crap I would kill Groot… I’m a horrible human being.

SCREEN JUNKIES DID AN HONEST TRAILER FOR THE WINTER SOLDIER BUT IT WAS SO GOOD THEY COULDN’T EVEN TAKE THE PISS OUT OF IT SO THEY JUST TALKED ABOUT WHAT A GOOD FILM IT WAS

Okay, I was snickering throughout this entire thing, but…

I lost it with “Falcon PUNCH!  Hail Hard Drive!”

(via batsonthebrain)

Seven years ago, I made a pretty egregious error, said something that was extremely offensive and got called out for it. The first words out of my mouth were, “Aw geez, I’m sorry. I didn’t realize that was offensive. Thank you for telling me.” and then I corrected myself and made a point change my behavior.” I owned the behavior, I accepted and admitted that I made a mistake, I apologized, and I moved on from it. I remained friends with the person in question until they moved on from that job.

A few years later, I made a pretty egregious error, and I said something that was extremely offensive and got called out for it. Again, I apologized, owned the mistake, thanked the person for educating me, and moved on from it.

To me, that seems to be the best way to handle this kind of situation. If I made someone upset with something I said, I apologize, own it, learn from it, and move on.

Last week, I called someone out on something. First words out of their mouth, “Well, you know I didn’t mean it like that. God, why are you so sensitive? It’s not like I’m a racist or anything.”

You do realize that the more you protest, the more racist you seem, right?

(And honestly, it was the first time outside of the movie School Ties that I had heard the phrase ‘Jew them down’ in forever.)

I believe that every american should at least watch this monologue from The Newsroom

Bravo!

this is my favorite post.

So so many people need to see this

Yep.

But…corndogs?

Transcript of the full speech, because this is honestly one of my favorite patriotic speeches I’ve ever heard:

"It’s not the greatest country in the world professor, that’s my answer.

Sharon, the NEA is a loser, yeah, it accounts for a penny out of our paycheck but he gets to hit you with it any time he wants. It doesn’t cost money, it costs votes, it costs air time, it costs column inches. You know why people don’t like liberals? Because they lose. If liberals are so fucking smart, how come they lose so god damn always? 

*Turns to conservative pundit*

And with a straight face you’re going to tell students that America is so star spangled awesome that we’re the only ones in the world that have freedom? Canada has freedom. Japan has freedom. The UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, BELGIUM has freedom. 

So, 207 sovereign states in the world, like 180 of them have freedom. 

And you, sorority girl, just in case you accidentally wander into a voting booth one day there’s somethings you should know. One of them is there’s absolutely no evidence to support the statement that we’re the greatest country in the world. We’re 7th in literacy, 27th in math, 22nd in science, 49th in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, 3rd in median household income, Number 4 in labor force and Number 4 in exports, we lead the world in only three categories: Number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending where spend more than the next 26 countries combined, 25 of whom are allies. 

Now none of this is the fault of a 20 year old college student, but you none the less are without a doubt a member of the worst period generation period ever period, so when you ask what makes us the greatest country in the world, I don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about. Yosemite?

It sure used to be. We stood up for what was right. We fought for moral reasons. We passed laws, struck down laws for moral reasons. We waged wars on poverty, not poor people. We sacrificed, we cared about our neighbors, we put our money where our mouths were and we never beat our chests. We built great big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured diseases, and cultivated the world’s greatest artists and the world’s greatest economy. We reached for the stars, acted like men, we aspired to intelligence, we didn’t belittle it, it didn’t make us feel inferior. 

We didn’t identify ourselves by who we voted for in the last election and we didn’t scare so easy. We were able to be all these things and do all these things because we were informed, by great men, men who were revered. First step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one. America is not the greatest country in the world anymore. Enough?”

Good News: Jiffy Lube was able to run a diagnostic and tell why the ‘Check Engine’ light is on.

"Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold"

Bad News: When I asked the guy how serious this was, if it was something they could fix, he shrugged and said “I dunno, take it to AutoZone or something.”

:|

Fortunately there is an AutoZone not far from the train station, and I’ve got four hours before my brother’s train is due to arrive, so I’ll go there after getting tasty Indian noms.

AutoZone was less helpful than hoped: they suggested I go to an actual mechanic, since that diagnostic result could be caused by many things. Of course no garage in the area is open on Sunday >_<

Grrrrrrrrrrrrr

I hope that you’re able to get this problem sorted out in the end hon…

I did some googling, and it looks like this could just be a sensor got knocked out of whack in your catalytic converter.  All info seems to point to going to a mechanic to have them run a diagnostic on it to be able to fix it, but at the same time it shouldn’t really affect your car’s performance save for some possible loss of power output.

Hope this helps…

Random Thoughts

I don’t understand how people can ship siblings together.  Like, I’m all for batcest, love me some batcest, but… Ruby/Yang?  No, just… they’re sisters!  Like, blood relations, growing up together and everything.  (But hey, if you can’t keep it in your pants, keep it in the family I guess…  Nothing says loving like porking your cousin… Dating is grating cause incest is best!)

I miss Stephanie as Batgirl.

These two thoughts are kind of extremely unrelated.

"You cheated!" Stephanie wailed, kicking an empty beer can down into the empty alleyway, leveling an angry glare over at her sparring partner.

"It isn’t cheating, it’s taking a tactical advantage. Even Babs and Cass kept their hair shorter than yours." Jason said, his voice slightly muffled through his helmet. He sounded like he was smiling. 

"Tactical advantage, my ass! Hair pulling is a total jerk move!" Stephanie grumbled, pulling her cowl off, and tying her long, blonde hair back hastily into a bun.

"I am a total jerk, sweetheart. Hate to break it to you. But just so it’s even, i’ll get rid of the helmet. That way it’s only my rugged good looks that will keep you from landing 10 points.” A quick twist, and a tug revealed the most irritating grin in the Greater Gotham area; and the thud of the helmet hitting the gravel of the roof top signaled that the clandestine sparring matches were now “Anything Goes”.

Trigonometry!
This is a graphical construction of the various trigonometric functions from a chord AD (angle θ) of the unit circle centered at O. In addition to the modern trigonometric functions sin (sine), cos (cosine), tan (tangent), cot (cotangent), sec (secant), and csc (cosecant), the diagram also includes a few trigonometric functions that have fallen into disuse: chord, versin (versine or versed sine), exsec (exsecant), cvs (coversine), and excsc (excosecant).

Conversation I had recently

"I believe that there are infinite universes, and we can only perceive one of them, and in another one we’re all fish, another one where everything plays out like DC Comics, another one where everything’s the exact same but mirrored so left is right…"

"That’s crazy, there’s no proof there’s anything like that."

"Oh, belief in god doesn’t need any proof to substantiate it, but as soon as I posit a multiverse theory you ask for hard scientific evidence?"
