Btw, your drawings are really cute and awesome!

Honestly, isn’t it MORE amazing to say “You know what, I do NOT fear divine retribution, yet I still choose to behave in a way that is morally grounded, based on my own belief that hey, being nice to people is pretty cool”? Kohlberg’s theory of moral development puts “fear of punishment/promise of reward” literally at level 1. It’s like…the first thing. “How do I avoid punishment” and “what’s in it for me” are the absolute EARLIEST ways in which we learn to determine moral and ethical behavior. 

Not bashing religions, because I find spirituality and faith beautiful qualities, but people who claim you can’t be moral without them aren’t giving the matter much thought. 

Only a fraction of ALS donations actually go to research - Ruthless Politics

Sorry to burst everyone’s bubbles about the ALS ice bucket challenge.

But to make up for it, why not donate to another cause that’ll actually save more lives? Or that actually puts more funds towards research for cures/treatments?

…donations go to raise more awareness, educate people, provide treatment for current patients, and pay the people who do those things for a living

how the bloody fuck is a third of the donations going to research and the rest going to keep the charity actually able to function a bad fucking thing

no
no no no

Yeah, I’m looking at the pie chart and it actually looks pretty reasonable to me, really, as far as expenses/spending go.

Yeah…that looks like a perfectly reasonable expense report. Doing shit costs money. And when you donate, you can literally specify that you want your donation to go toward research only, if you want. I didn’t, because I know the people working at the organization probably enjoy paychecks, too. And the people already suffering from ALS probably enjoy getting the help they deserve. And the education and awareness that’s being raised is a Good Thing, in my humble opinion. 27% to raw research? That’s actually pretty fucking astounding, honestly.

I think this one is the best just because of how he talks. 

Wins.

Okay, this one’s my favourite.

Genetically Modified Berry compared to Organic Berry:
Note that the modified specimen is bloated to about 3 times the mass of the common berry. Advanced rot has set in prior to maturity and tests revealed 78% more lactic acid in the modified organism.
Upon contact with the modified berry, the picker’s hands exhibited a rash which is clearly visible on the fingers and should not be mistaken for juice stains acquired during picking. While the common berry, of course, has no ill effects on the skin, the modified organism had an effect similar to poison oak and swelling set in shortly after the photo was taken.  The discoloration and pain lasted approximately 12 hours with treatment including Neosporin and Syrup of Ipecac.
At 16 hours the specimen went missing and could not be monitored for decay rates.  While the common berry remained, the modified berry was spotted the next Tuesday at the corner of Wallace and 12th St. Having grown another meter and a half, the genetically modified berry murdered two prostitutes and became the target of a cross country manhunt. It was last seen on February 20th in Boulder, CO where it has joined with several bananas from the Monsanto corporation and stolen at least two shotguns from the Boulder Police Department.
A manifesto was released online suggesting that the berries intend to strike at our nurseries, killing our young and replacing them with further modified organisms which we will raise as our own. They also intend to “free their enslaved brothers” by treating common fruits and possibly vegetables with mutagens.
The head of the FDA could not be reached for comment as he has gone missing. Only a glass of unidentified red fluid was found in his office, labeled “Extra Pulp”.

The number of people that aren’t reading the whole thing and are hailing it as fact make me laugh harder than the actual story.

Just be yourself and forget all of the stuff you read in ‘GQ’ magazine.

Ok no joke I’m 30 years old and I’m hella scared of the dark like I just had to run across the living room so nothing evil would catch me when the fuck does that end?

Here's my random confession: I'm comfortable in my gender, but sometimes I really wish I had the body of a cis male. I used to dream frequently about having a penis and sometimes i see hot men and think "damn, i want to look like that" even though i'm also comfortable in the body and parts I have. I'm almost disappointed I'll never feel what it would be like to have a "male" body though.

I can understand that, anon. I dream male almost exclusively, and while I’m not uncomfortable in my body per se, it is weird to know I’ll never be actually male. I’m gender-neutral, so I don’t really consider myself either, but it’s weird to know my body isn’t neutral!
