The point of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

the point of pouring a shit ton of ice water over yourself is because when one suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) one of the effects the disease has is a numbness throughout the body, as well as struggling to breathe, and both these are meant to temporarily happen when doused in freezing water. It’s to raise awareness of what ALS feels like and encourage donations towards research and cures.

(To Westboro Baptist Church)

"If you really believe in standing up to those threatening the Christian way of life," Hills said on his UK television program "The Last Leg," "how about putting your money where your mouth is, taking a direct flight to Iraq and picketing the people threatening to behead Christians if they don’t convert?"

Hills then took his suggestion a step further by making a generous offer. “I will personally pay for every member of the Westboro Baptist Church to fly to Iraq right now. I’ll even fly you first class and pay the carbon offset.”

GUYS

THEY ACCEPTED

Thanksgiving is coming!

Wait, hold on, wasn’t this originally the comic about people stealing art and claiming it as their own. 
Did you just copy someone’s artwork and claim it as your own to complain about theft. 
Did you just do that. 

The level of metafuckery right here is incredible

I don’t normally comment on this kind of thing here on my development blog, but it’s a close issue to me because soon I will be making my first professional game public and trying to make it with game development as a livelihood.
I wanted to reblog this but I don’t want the base post to keep getting more notes so I screencapped it instead. The link in above passage is located here. Please do not let Scott Cawthon become villainized by tumblr because of one person’s misinformation. Please read the linked message.
If you see anyone you know going along and actually believing this BS please take the time of day to correct them. Today someone’s promising career of professional artwork was unjustly attacked, both financially and even worse ethically. Please do not give permanence to this wide-scale hate campaign of a great developer for literally no reason, and please remember this site is a public forum where anything can blow up, and you should be careful when you say things that you did not personally research the veracity of.
Sorry this is part of your experience with tumblr so far Scott Cawthon. I swear there are rad people here.

I love how the first half of the song is a nice piano melody and then the last half turns into this strange, twisted, “wintery” sound.

Your bottled water habit is sucking California dry

If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.

Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.

Turn on the tap instead Follow micdotcom

Lots of people believe bottled water is safer and cleaner than tap water, when in reality there’s no evidence proving such a thing.

Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!: Bottled Water segment, gives a very good and thorough summary of the bottled water culture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHx6BX3HZJc

You want better water? Buy a Zero filter. SRSLY. Stop buying bottled if possible. You need water with you? Get reusable acrylic or glass water bottles (wrapped in a silicon sleeve) and fill it up from your filter pitcher. SAVE MONEY, SAVE MY STATE

This is all incredibly important, some cities have as little as 60 -120 days left.  Try using a refillable water container, and if you’re a California resident, make sure to report water waste in public spaces.

Also, maybe take a second and sign the petition to stop a giant Slip n’ slide from being built in Los Angeles. Priorities.

Time to show some love and appreciate these heroes.

Firefighters are some badass mutha fuckas

firefighters are incredibly under appreciated, this is sadly the first appreciation post to them and we need more of these, they literally walk through hell to pick up people and pull them out, they are all Castiels if all civilians are Deans, and they save animals, treating all like humans, i have never heard of a firefighter that has chosen not to save someone for there race or sex or sexuality or anything, a human is a human and an animal is an animal, i love these people and they don’t deserve to be ignored as much as they are

<3

My grandpa was a fireman that came out here from Arkansas with only the money in his pocket, got a job building the fire house he went on to become chief of decades later. He retired when I was born to be the father figure I didn’t have in my life while my mom worked long hours as a nurse. He is my hero.

Firefighters are some of the best guys out there and this post means a lot.

My dad used to be a fire fighter and their training is even scary sometimes!

The Blackwater-esque military contracting company ‘Asymmetrical Solutions’ announced on Twitter yesterday that they are deploying special ops to Ferguson.

From their facebook:

At suggestion of our client who felt our position was unique, our public message was one of frustration that someone who would typically call upon us to escort them to Baghdad, Kabul, etc. would feel the need to ask us to take them into a suburb of St. Louis

In our time inside the Ferguson area, we came into ancillary contact with numerous demonstrators and protestors who did not seem to have any commitment to violence or chaos, but only wanted to peacefully have their opinion heard or report on the matters at hand. It seems a few bad actors are being treated as the whole.

Law and order is important. Rioters and looters should be arrested and prosecuted. They cannot be used an excuse for the Governor to unnecessarily detain or arrest a peaceful press or lawful demonstrators. The Government has a duty to defend those liberties with the same vigor in which they defend private property from theft and destruction.

How to respond to that? I get that their use of “lawful demonstrators” is fairly ambiguous and vague. But they also seem to be (at least through this post) siding that the protestors are in the right.

I feel like this ties in to what I was saying about talking to vets about militarization on the homefront. A vast majority of PMCs are veterans, and know what an occupation looks like. I feel like whoever was the author of this statement falls under that umbrella.

funny, i thought the WHOLE COUNTRY was a first amendment area. silly me. 

Not to mention that the Supreme Court has ruled conclusively, twice, against “free speech zones”.

Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).
