"tea is just leaf water!" "yeah well coffee is just bean water!" wow, it’s. it’s like everything is made of things. this door is just wood rectangle. this poster is just ink paper. this lemonade is just lemon water. wow, it’s like you can combine ingredients to make things that are more enjoyable than the initial parts of the equation. sure is a magical world we live in

"men have unrealistic expectations to live up to, too! women will make fun of men with small penises!"

  1. that was a standard invented by men which is based on an incorrect understanding of how female sexuality works
  2. stop shooting yourself in the foot and then blaming women

Venomous vs poisonous! The animals are: northern copperhead, cane toad, tiger keelback snake, hooded pitohui, northern short-tailed shrew.

#omg cute   #seriously though why don’t people teach this in school   #my tenured cell bio professor doesn’t know the difference   (via mothbug)
First - this is adorable and excellent, birdandmoon - as always! Second, I just wanted to address the question asked by Gina in her tags.
The reason many people don’t know about this is that it is a relatively new distinction. It is being self-enforced by the fairly logical nature of the terminology and a lot of particularly anal grammar Nazis. Indeed, most dictionaries do not give a satisfactory definition of venom vs. poison vs. toxin (as I basically explained in this post on the subject), and fifty years ago it was not as important, allowing for the publication of this jarringly titled book:

[x] - a copy of which resides in my office.
Another reason that this problem persists is that it is not universal. I dare say most languages do not make a distinction between venom and poison: as a fun game, go here and try different languages into which to translate ‘venom’, ‘poison’, and ‘toxin’. Of the several I tried, only Irish, French, English, and, curiously, Hebrew and Armenian, made any distinction.
Nevertheless, I believe the distinction of venom and poison to be a very important advancement of the English language, particularly with regard to science.

OMG! LOOK AT HOW CLOSE NORTH KOREA PUT THEIR COUNTRY NEAR ALL THE US MILITARY BASES!

I wonder if the U.S. would feel paranoid and threatened if a foreign military set up the same amount of bases to surround the U.S. What if this foreign military was also known to have massacred hundreds of thousands of your people and afterwards these same perpetrators that massacred your people, set up bases all around your country, then proceed to tell you to disarm because you’re the one that seems threatening. Because you know, you’re not allowed to resist.

Not to mention when these American soldiers fuck up and kill civilians from these countries, they don’t even get proper trial and get let off the hook

For example:
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yangju_highway_incident

And some people still think North Korea is the problem for the worsening US-Korea relations. smh.

My friend from Guam wrote an essay about US military stationed there around the same time I started getting really pissed off about this. After a 12 year girl was kidnapped and gang-raped by 3 soldiers in Okinawa I came to the conclusion that the US military and their overseas bases were indefensible. Now that I’m living in Seoul, despite a few reasonable people, I find that an extremely large chunk of US soldiers are completely terrible. The fact that they’re blockading the DPRK and maneuvering around China is bad diplomacy. But we also can’t forget the major damage soldiers cause in the countries that host them. This is the new imperialism.

yep. and this all needs to change. this perception that North Korea is the threat, when really it’s the United States and the United States Military with South Korea.

over dinner today, my aunt from chicago mentioned that she heard on the news that North Korea recently tested some rockets. so I asked her if she heard any news about the massive joint military drills going on right now with the US military and South Korea. and she said no, she didn’t hear of any news like that. then i asked if she had heard anything about all these massive joint military drills being held at least once twice or more per year in the past. and again, she said she didn’t hear anything about this.

this is typical of the average person, the average american. and this needs to change.

you know, i wish everyone would know that these massive joint military exercises being conducted by South Korea and the US military on fairly regular basis aren’t some sort of dinner formal or ball room dance parties between american soldiers and rok soldiers dosey doeing around in some hotel in south korea.

these are actual live massive war games, with rockets and missiles shot, ammos fired and bombs dropped at massive scales that dwarfs any of the few handful of outdated rockets North Korea fires, and fires almost always in response.

and if some american historian or american scholar or some american journalist or some american dude tells you otherwise then they’re being academically and intellectually dishonest with you.

here are some pics of some past US-South Korea military drills. now keep in mind these pics won’t even begin to show you the full scale of what the US Military and South Korean military are doing:

The US Government:We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
The US Government:If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
The US Government:And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
The US Government:In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
The US Government:If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
The US Government:Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable
The US Government:And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
The US Government:The parent who is working 16 hours a day
