mrmagicklaus: Why is this happening? I mean, honestly. What's this wild over reaction? Can't they see they're making it worse attacking the rioters/protesters?


What people do not seem to know about or remember is that our right to protest was taken away some time ago. Does anyone remember when people were arrested for dancing near monuments in DC because even dancing was considered a form of protest. When I talk about my frustration concerning our rapidly shrinking list of remaining rights, I’m not joking. We have very few left, and even those we are supposed to have are constantly being ignored.

We have been marching towards being a police state for some time now. This was a long time coming. And this will not be the end of it.

They just pulled the local cops and are replacing them with federal authorities. It’s about to get a whole lot worse. My support goes out to Ferguson and everyone in this country forced to watch as what we once stood for as a nation is systematically picked apart and destroyed.

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.

“You’re only given one little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it."  - Robin Williams [July 29th 1951 - August 11th 2014]

Elephant funeral —The funeral ceremony of Pang Somjai, a 65-year old female elephant who peacefully died of old age. Pang Somjai was a former tourist elephant from Surin province who came to live at the Doi Phamuang sanctuary national forest as part of the Elephant Reintroduction Foundation’s program to reintroduce captive elephants to wild forest habitat.

“He may have an extra set of legs attached to his head and some obscured vision but that hasn’t stopped this little guy from embracing life.”
From what I saw and read eventually the calf gets the extra set of legs removed.








In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.

The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.
He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.

and old Apple computers
the apple was a rainbow 

Reblogging again because more people need to know about Turing dammit.



last night a guy said to me “you are very, very pretty” and i said “i know” and he said like patronisingly “you KNOW?” and i said “you think you’re the first person to ever compliment me?” and he didn’t know where to go from there

The new femme fatale subverts the male fantasy precisely by way of directly and brutally realizing it, acting it out in “real life.”
she is fully aware that men hallucinate about such a direct approach, and that directly giving them what they hallucinate about is the most effective way to undermine their domination.
By brutally destroying the spectral aura of “feminine mystery,” by acting as a cold manipulating subject interested only in raw sex, reducing her partner to a partial object, … does she not also […] destroy what is “for him more than himself” [in himself]?

Slavoj Zizek [on man’s idealizing: even when she does not hide her lack of magic essence, which men hallucinate or project on her, is she taken to be more than herself]
