Explain the obsession of terrorism in the USAs the debacle in Boston continues to unfold live on all channels 24/7, I couldn't help but notice one interesting fact during my training session at the gym today.Explain the obsession of terrorism in the US2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1) Terrorist act overseas killing innocent people, same day, 50 people killed = of very minor interest.
2) Innocent people killed in the US by a major industrial accident, 30+ people killed = of moderate interest.
3) Bring those two together - a terrorist act in the US killing 4 people with manhunt after = "JESUS HAS RETURNED & THE CURE FOR CANCER HAS BEEN DISCOVERED" level of interest.
To summarize: terrorism = meh; innocent people die = meh; terrorism kills innocent people in the United States = OMFG WTF?! This is a fact, no doubt. How do you explain this? All the possibilities I've been able to come up with are either malicious or profoundly stupid.
On another note, the guys who did this are Chechens

JUST MAKE COMICS!I’ve been getting a lot of complaints from people saying they don’t like all the “feminism” and “SJW” messages that I’ve been putting into my comics lately. They want me to just make comics that are fun and don’t have political meanings or messages behind them.JUST MAKE COMICS!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Alright... I can get behind that. I understand that sometimes reiterating yourself on your political points can get a bit tiring, especially when you don’t yourself marinate in social justice issues 24/7. No problem!
Except... I haven’t really been doing that. Like, at all. These are the latest 27 comics and Illustrations I’ve made:

Lost BBA Comic Page - Entries and Top 3!Hey guys!Lost BBA Comic Page - Entries and Top 3!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Okay so, WOW we had a lot more people submit entries than I expected!
It was so fun to read all of these. There were so many awesome submissions that it was difficult to choose, and I had some anxiety about needing to even pick a top 3, because I dont want anyone to think that what they did wasnt good! I like them all and will be commenting on each one in the users gallery.
:iconfablepaint: and I picked 3 that we felt had both a compelling art style and writing style.
Kays comments: Twiggy's paneling is captivating in this page. Her expressions are solid and her dialogue flows well and is believable. The dream sequence is my favorite bit - lit with an ethereal bloom, the slow introduction of blood is seriously creepy. Overall this page had a great mood that drew me in.
Fables comments: This page really sucks you in, and I got to credit the great panel layout for that. You could remove all the characters and artwork and just have a series of blank
PSA: Take Street Harassment Seriously!Street Harassment: Is a Man Running Over a 14-Year Old Girl for Refusing Sex Serious Enough?PSA: Take Street Harassment Seriously!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Written by: Soraya Chemaly
Feminist, Writer, Satirist... not always in that order
Me, again. Time for another, "please take street harassment seriously" post.
Earlier this week a man in a car pulled up next to a 14-year old girl on a street in Florida and offered to pay her $200 to have sex with him. Some people would say that's a compliment. It's part of being out in society, learning to deal with people, navigating relationships between men and women. Or, at least that what many commenters on articles I write about street harassment think. That or maybe they're thinking, "She must have looked like a prostitute," and well, you know.
The girl said no. So what does this guy do? He reaches out, drags her, by her hair, into his car, chokes her until she blacks out, tosses her out of the car and then, not done yet, he runs her over several times. Bystanders watched t

Lately, i spent my time in Frankfurt due to the Bookfair and thus, I also took the chance to check out Germany's second largest museum of natural history: The Naturkunde Museum Senckenberg.
Even though my feet let me feel like being a walker from Stephen King's "The Long Walk" (I was running around non stop for the whole day) boy, did I had a great time there. The museum is a blast and a literal titbit for everyone who is interested in natural history, zoology and palaeontology.
People and kids especially love it for its dinosaurs (and I admit that these were really impressive I think my personal highlights were the great collections of stuffed mammals and stuffed birds (which also is the largest worldwide, speaking of the birds).

Atheism - not intellectually impressiveThis is mainly directed at atheists and agnostic atheists - i.e. people who don't believe in the existence of god. If you still believe in SkyDaddy BigBoss, then maybe this journal is not for you.Atheism - not intellectually impressive2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Good for you, but in most cases: not good enough. Atheism is merely a rejection of one bullshit type. Too many atheists are content, and actually feel proud of rejecting god. Let's get a grip on reality: this is not an impressive intellectual feat. Religion is the easiest kind of bullshit to recognize. The contradictions are plainly obvious once you actually allow your mind to critically examine the claims made. That it itself is a momentous step that most people in the world are unwilling or unable to take. However, it's not an achievement you should be satisfied with.
Instead, ask yourself - "What other bullshit do I take for granted?" Believe me, there is tons. Your life is full of it, but your critical thinking is not strong enough to recognize it. Surprise, surprise - some religious bibl
So What is it that Gamers Want?Over the past several weeks gamers have been whining incessantly about” journalistic integrity” over the supposed “scandalous” incident involving Zoe Quinn which may or may not have actually happened at all.So What is it that Gamers Want?7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Zoe Quinn was accused of sleeping with journalists to get positive reviews for her game... which wasn’t true. While it’s entirely possible that she did sleep with games reviewers while cheating on her current boyfriend, there’s no real evidence that that translated into positive attention for her game. And frankly, that’s not really any of our business is it? A person’s personal sex life isn’t anything WE, gamers, should be concerned with.
But weather or not you believe the rumors, the thing that gamers seem to want NOW is to “rid games journalism of corruption,” which begs the question... what corruption? I understand that there’s this idea that if a game journalist donates money to a game on, say, Patre

Skulls and eye sockets.Hey , all you folks who are interested in animal skulls... I was looking at my skull collection and noticed: Every prey animal I have: deer, antelope, sheep, goat, horse, camel (but not rodents or marsupials) have enclosed eye sockets, including primates. Every carnivore skull I have, that I looked at ( can't find the badger and skunk) has open eye sockets, except the meerkat and the ferret. The only other mongoose I have ( a binterong) and the other "weasels" I have ( related to ferrets) have open eye sockets too.Skulls and eye sockets.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I wonder why the difference? What about their lifestyle would require closed eye sockets?
Maybe because meerkats are prey animals as well as predators, they have some of the same characteristics as other prey animals??
"Open eye sockets" means that the place the eyeball sits in the skull is not completely surrounded by bone.

To Enable or Disable - THAT is the questionPewDiePie is closing comments on his YouTube videos. In his opinion the disconnect between YouTube personality and fans is too great, and most YouTube comments are worthless spamming, hating, or just plain garbage. While he has turned off comments before in protest of certain things, this time around he says comments are gone for good on all future videos uploaded to YouTube. You can watch his video describing this new change here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_hHKlEZ9GoTo Enable or Disable - THAT is the question7 months ago in Personal More Like This
What interests me about this, however, is the way in which people are reacting to it. A lot of people are saying “good!” or “YouTube comments are terrible, so I totally understand why he’d do that!” Which is a little surprising to me... because of Anita Sarkeesian.
Now we’ve talked about Anita Sarkeesian before. She makes feminist videos dissecting tropes about women in gaming. As a result of her doing this, she’s gotten ungodly amounts of backlash and hatred. Since her vid

Family Guy + Rape Culture, Digital Animal AbuseIn my last journal I apparently touched a few people off by saying that I didn’t like rape jokes in Family Guy, and that I was upset that a digital mutant lizard was killed in the trailer for Mad Max. There were a number of people who didn’t find those things to be offensive and couldn’t seem to understand why I personally would get so upset. “Family Guy has ALWAYS had rape jokes” or “It’s not even a real animal” being the typical response. So let’s try to address this stuff...Family Guy + Rape Culture, Digital Animal Abuse8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Family Guy and Rape Culture
Before we begin we need to set some definitions so that we’re all on the same page.
Rape culture is a phrase used to describe a culture in which rape is pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender, sex, and sexuality. Examples of behaviors commonly associated with rape culture include victim blaming, sexual objectification, trivializing rape, denial of widespread rape, or
Psychology meaning of doodles/drawings.*Disclaimer* not my own written work just a collection of notes from many sources.* Last Edit: 8/23/2014Psychology meaning of doodles/drawings.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many of us doodle and you may not realize it but doodles will actually tell you a lot about your personality and mood. The size, position as well as what the object(s) of focus of will lead you to some key clues. There are many different shapes, designs and colors of doodles, just as there are different dream scenarios, but there are some that are quite common and, as such, more easily interpreted.
Size and Placement
Large doodles that take most of your page, you are likely to be attracted to nature. Moreover, you might also have a reserved personality, but would want to socialize.
Small doodles on a corner of the paper suggest that the person is neat and organized in his/her ways. Because the drawing is placed on a side of the page, it shows that a person does not like wastage and prefers everything in its
