I'm 25. Texas A&M graduate. Atheist. Liberal. Pansexual. Awesome. I fangirl over Beyonce, Einstein, and Batman. I blog about politics a lot, but, also, science, nerdy things, and anything I find funny. Enjoy.

WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT THIS
BECAUSE THIS IS LITERALLY THE FIRST IVE HEARD ABOUT IT
A Pythagorean cup looks like a normal drinking cup, except that the bowl has a central column in it. It was supposedly invented by Pythagoras of Samos (yes, that one). It allows the user to fill the cup with wine up to a certain level. If the user fills only to that level, the imbiber may enjoy a drink in peace. If, however, the user gets greedy, the cup dumps all the wine into the unfortunate victim’s lap.
Pythagoras sounds like a real asshole.
Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust.
She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them.
She saved hundreds of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”.
After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.
I want to nail this to the forehead of every anti-abortionist who uses the word “Holocaust” when talking about legal abortions.
I was called a NAZI for showing a woman the entrance to a clinic. My family is Jewish and Slavic and both of my grandfathers fought for the Allies. The logic is really lacking and really painful.
they got mad
Green Day lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong wrote this about his father, who died of cancer on September 1st, 1982. At his father’s funeral, Billie cried, ran home and locked himself in his room. When his mother got home and knocked on the door to Billie’s room, Billie simply said, “Wake me up when September ends.”
So I’d be angry too if people kept this shit up every single year.
I hope I can just sleep. I feel awful and I do not want to go to work tomorrow. I hope I don’t cry in the office.
It’s called fall because everything is falling… leaves, temperature, bank account, gpa, self esteem
While supporters say photo IDs reduce voter fraud, the problem isn’t quite as widespread as legislators may believe. A study earlier this year found 31 credible cases of fraud in a sample of one billion votes cast. Requiring identifications like drivers licenses tends to disenfranchise lower income voters, who are less likely to have gone through the process of applying for and receiving them.
Low income voters — especially black and Hispanic ones — are much less likely to vote for Republicans. A cynical observer could come away with the idea that supporting voter ID laws is a way to keep them away from the polls rather than a way to avoid fraud.
