Anonymous asked: So a cop, a racist, and a murderer walk into a bar. And that's just the first guy.
I get this joke.
Try one day without police.
Man I’d love for you to be right about that. But here’s the hitch: you’re more likely to be killed by a cop than a crook. And ‘the devil you know’ is not really any better than the possibility that crime will rise if cops were deprived of lethal authority.
In the city I live in, one of the five biggest in America, the cops do not investigate or pursue criminals. They dedicate all of their attention to traffic stops and trying to flip CI’s for drug offenses, because those are the crimes that net the department more funding. And any other crimes they investigate would cost the department money.
Last year I was robbed at gunpoint. I had to fill out my own report online because they could not be arsed to even answer their phones. There has not been any followup call or investigation. Earlier this year someone on my property found a bloody machete laying on the grass in a plastic sheath that would preserve fingerprints and blood. Uniformed cops were dispatched to photograph the scene and bag the evidence, detectives did not even show up in person to look at anything. Everyone I know in this city has stories like this. And nobody, none of them, has any record of police doing anything at all to help anyone or pursue a criminal since the last century.
I live in the Purge, honestly. Trying one day without police would be a good day for me.
As C.M. Kosemen explains throughout All Yesterdays, we really can’t ever know how much fat and other soft tissues contributed to the overall shape of dinosaurs since that’s the first thing to rot and shrivel tight against their bones and like even a sperm whale has a little skinny skeleton.
how would we know?
my life got about a thousand times better once i stopped censoring myself
and by censoring i don’t mean i suddenly embraced indiscriminate swearing; i mean i stopped trying to sugarcoat my past or my feelings; i stopped lying by omission; i stopped having guilty pleasures; i began unabashedly enjoying whatever i liked; i became very honest; i cut out of my life poisonous people and negative ideals, and i am so, so much happier for it
i can’t wait until i’m older and have a serious relationship like think of how much fun that would be every single night would be like a sleepover with your best friend and you could make pancakes at 3 in the morning and uncontrollably snuggle when you’re bored
is there a 420 in pi
humanity has made great strides today
Oh look at that, 413
Literally every possible number is in Pi. Somewhere in there is a line of numbers that, when turned into an image, shows you having sex with Nicholas Cage on the moon with Margaret Thatcher looking on and shedding a single sultry tear. Pi is amazing.
