"Community has pulled off one the most patient easter egg: in one episode of each of the first three seasons, the word "Beetlejuice" was used off-handedly in a joke. If you’ve seen the movie Beetlejuice, the titular mischievous ghost would appear in the world of the living if anyone said his name three times. So, sure enough, on the third mention by a Community character, this guy appears in the background for exactly two seconds. They patiently waited three years to reach that punchline."

That is pretty wonderful.

How in the fuck do you cancel this?

Not the stuff of sci-fi satire. This is a real finding from a real study: Female-named hurricanes kill more than male hurricanes because people don’t respect them.

”’[Our] model suggests that changing a severe hurricane’s name from Charley … to Eloise … could nearly triple its death toll,’ the study says.”
Oh my fucking god

I like the part where people are calling for the naming process to be changed…
In my opinion sexist assholes ignoring GODDAMN HURRICANES because they have girl names should have to face the consequences.

An immortal being has the ability to share their power with one soul and make them immortal too, so they can have a companion for all the years if they choose. Only one though. This being has had countless lovers and friends, and they have seen them all fade away as time passes. The being tells one of their lovers, whom they’ve been with for ten years or so, about their ability, and the lover begs to have the energy shared with them so they can be together for eternity.

"I can’t," the immortal says.

"Why not?" the lover asks.

"I’m already sharing my power."

"With who?"

The immortal looks down. “My cat.”

So I saw that girl who told you about being touched inappropriately and I decided I’d post my story here because I wasn’t sure where else to turn. I’m 14 and for a few months now this guy has been constantly asking me out (I think I’m still to young, not that it matters). Both him and his scum bag friends have made my life a living hell over the past few months. So like a few days ago he tries to corner me and physically holds me against the wall with one of my hands so with the other I hit him straight in the nose and then it turns out he broke it so his dad calls up the school and MY parents saying they should learn to keep their daughter under control and then start defending his son saying that he is a young man and of course he would be attracted to me and that I should learn to take a compliment!

All I can say is, I would pay cash money to have watched that whiny little shitbaby get so-deservedly bopped on the nose by you.  A million rounds of applause for you.  You are a fucking badass, girl.  Never let anyone tell you what you did wasn’t completely right and strong and awesome.  You are always allowed to defend yourself and fuck anyone who puts you in the position of having to, or shames you for doing so.

Anon defends herself with reasonable force from a physical assault and this shithead dad is trying to make her out to be the one in the wrong? I fucking can’t even.

At first I though this was a joke

Don’t ignore this Tumblr

Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.

This reminds me of how a friend of mine was abused by the mother of his child. She was mentally unstable and used to berate him constantly and would smack him in the head all the time. It really pissed me off. Then one night she threw hot coffee in his face and tried to stab him with a screwdriver. The cops hauled him off to jail because she made up a sob story that painted herself as the victim. 

Once he left her, he stayed with me and it was a nightmare. She stalked him and me. She would drive by my house obsessively at all hours of the day and night (her muffler made a weird sound so I know it was her). She started showing up at my job, showing up at the places I frequented around town, and filling up my voicemail with dead air. The cops were no help.

One day she got bold enough to talk her way into my home by conning my elderly grandmother, whom I was taking care of, while I was out. She went in my room and went through my stuff (creepy), then found him napping on the couch and attacked him. My grandmother witnessed the whole thing. He grabbed her by the arms, forced her out the front door, and locked it. The cops were called again. They said they’d go and ‘talk’ to her.

The next day we were watching a movie and there was a knock at the door. The police had come to arrest him. She filed a complaint against him and shown off some bruises on her arms from the altercation that she swore were completely unprovoked. My grandmother saw the whole thing since she was in the living room too and testified on his behalf. He still ended up serving jail time.
No one takes male domestic violence victims seriously. They only see males as perpetrators.

South Carolina Mother Jailed Because She Let Her 9-Year-Old Daughter Play in the Park Unsupervised
Here are the facts: Debra Harrell works at McDonald’s in North Augusta, South Carolina. For most of the summer, her daughter had stayed there with her, playing on a laptop that Harrell had scrounged up the money to purchase. (McDonald’s has free WiFi.) Sadly, the Harrell home was robbed and the laptop stolen, so the girl asked her mother if she could be dropped off at the park to play instead.
Harrell said yes. She gave her daughter a cell phone. The girl went to the park—a place so popular that at any given time there are about 40 kids frolicking—two days in a row. There were swings, a “splash pad,” and shade. On her third day at the park, an adult asked the girl where her mother was. At work, the daughter replied.
The shocked adult called the cops. Authorities declared the girl “abandoned” and proceeded to arrest the mother.

The war on working class Black women in the U.S. continues apace. This time, a mother of a 9-year old child is arrested and jailed for the “crime” of dropping her daughter off at the park to play with other children while she had to go to work at a minimum wage job at McDonald’s (which fittingly happens to be located inside a WalMart).  Now the woman’s poor child is in the hands of the South Carolina state authorities [a state which STILL proudly flies the Confederate Flag at its Capitol building]. The irony is that the justification employed by state officials is that the mother put the child at risk by leaving her in the park where some random strangers might have just come along and kidnapped her child. As it turns out, that is exactly what happened, but the kidnappers were the police! They came along and snatched this woman’s child and now she risks losing her daughter forever!

No justice, no peace

Do you know how many times my ass stayed at the park or library after school till my mom got off work? This is bullshit pure and simple.
Edit: AND I AIN’T EVEN GET A CELLPHONE!
