Alt-text from XKCD: “I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.”

    • them:
      Oh my gaaaaaawd!

    • me:
      what?

    • them:
      You're so pretentious!

    • me:
      what now?

    • them:
      you are!

    • me:
      seriously!? How do you figure that?

    • them:
      I just read your eMail!

    • me:
      ...

    • them:
      what did you do, swallow a dictionary and then throw it up?

    • me:
      what the fuck are you talking about?

    • them:
      the words you use! Why can't you use normal words?

    • me:
      they are normal words! I use definitive, identifiable words deliberately so as to avoid vagueness or ambiguity.

    • them:
      see! like that! What are those words!?

    • me:
      English?

    • them:
      argh!

  5. misunderstandings and neglect create more confusion in this world than trickery and malice

    Related: You can’t have a culture without practices; and the practices you follow identify your culture.

    Further inference: Mind you, any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice … especially if it is practiced.

  6. eurgh, ffs.

    if you have to rely on an ad hominem attack to make your point, then maybe you need to work out what your point was.

    Thanks to the internet, the more dick picks I see, the happier I am with the lot in my pants, err, life.

    Here in Australia, this is what has been happening over the past few days. The media is largely ignoring it, despite it being one of the largest protests in this country’s history. My state has also just passed laws that will come into effect in September that put restrictions on protesting which could lead to two years imprisonment. Our Prime Minister won’t even acknowledge that this has been happening.

    Reblog this!

    Please get this circulating. Australian media refuses to cover it and the government is pretending it didn’t happen even though there were people on their doorsteps at Parliament house. People in Australia are discontented with the way asylum seekers are treated like criminals, indigenous people are still being treated horribly, that our prime minister is a racist, sexist, homophobe who appointed himself as Minister for Women, that our health care is threatened, that our environment is being treated as a commodity, that our university funding is being cut, and that our Prime Minister doesn’t “believe” in climate change and that this country now only caters to the rich and conservative. And that barely scratches the surface.

    What this government does is not in our name and we need to get the message out there, loud and clear.

    YES!

    I’d wear lots of these outfits.

    Here, let me fix that for you:

    | Women In suits | 

    Wear it
    because it looks good, 
    because it’s comfortable, 
    because it’s what you want,
    because you like it,
    because it suits you.

  10. Apparently …

    Flipboard has decided that everyone needed to know what i was flipping into my mags this morning. I’m sorry for the spam, though am glad that it was apparently timely and of use to some of you.

    For those interested in my collations they can be explored over there
