Introverts don’t get lonely if they don’t socialize with a lot of people, but we do get lonely if we don’t have intimate interactions on a regular basis.

Really?

The morning of date night, and my car decides to overheat on the way to work this morning, after I checked the fluids a week ago. Fucking hell, am I not allowed one decent night out without spending money on this junker car?

Not happy at all about this. Gonna put water in it when it cools off, and see if that allieviates the issue for the evening. Hopefully I’ll be able to actually do what I want tonight.

School stabbing spree: 20 hurt in Pittsburgh-area bloodbath
(Photo: NBC News)
As many as 20 students were hurt, some with life-threatening wounds, when a classmate went on a stabbing rampage through the classrooms and halls of a high school outside Pittsburgh on Wednesday morning, authorities said.

proof if you take away guns, people will still find ways to hurt each other

Yes, but let’s consider that for a moment: Thus far, there have been no deaths. All the victims are expected to live. In the Newtown, Conn. shooting, Adam Lanza killed twenty-six people in less than five minutes. Not maimed — killed.
A gun is going to make a person more lethal, in less time, from further away. With other methods, like a knife, the attacker must get close to their intended targets (versus spraying bullets indiscriminately), and this gives opportunity for others to run and/or subdue the assailant.
When the principal at Newtown tried to stop Lanza, she was murdered. The vice principal in this case was able to tackle the suspect and he was cuffed by the school resource officer. Yes, people will still find ways to hurt each other. There’s no reason to make it easier for them to do so.
Please don’t claim this attack “proves” gun control proponents wrong, or firearms advocates right. I will admit, my first thought was, “Thank God he didn’t have a gun” — however, when are we going to have a discussion about what leads a high school sophomore to this kind of attack as a solution? Or anyone, for that matter? Perhaps he had access to guns and maybe he didn’t. We don’t know.
The undeniable truth here is that for whatever reason, he chose knives, and that choice, in this instance, may have made it more difficult for him to rack up the kind of body count we have seen as a nation in similar mass attacks when a gun is used.

I’ve tended to find that, after shooting sprees, victims don’t post selfies of themselves recovering in hospital. Mainly because they go to the morgue, not the wards.

^ Ahem.

Actually, taking away firearms won’t prevent people from committing acts of heinous violence. It also doesn’t mean that they will be easier to stop because they can’t shoot you from 20 feet away.
A knife is a killer, just like a gun. Pretending like it isn’t, and that guns are worse, is a ridiculous notion. Practically any object can kill if its put into the wrong hands…and in those situations, it won’t matter if they do it from 20 feet away or from 2 feet. If you aren’t prepared for the encounter, you will likely get severely injured and/or die. 
Do you all think that it’s that simple? “Oh he has a knife, he has to get close so it will be harder for him to hurt us.” Do you honestly think those kids in that school had some kind of knife defense training or any self defense training at all in order to prevent them from panicking the moment they realize they might die? Do you think they know how to properly disarm an attacker who is holding a knife and subdue them accordingly? What about the teachers? Don’t assume that because its a melee weapon that you have an advantage. 
Stop trying to force the blame on guns. Blame the people using the guns, and other weapons, to harm others.

hey dawg i’m a united states marine and lemme tell youwe are armed with firearms for a reasonthey make us more efficient. they make us more dangerous. they keep us out of melee range of the enemy. we are able to use fire and maneuver (thanks to the distance) to close with and destroy the enemyif you really believe knives are as dangerous as guns, explain to me why we aren’t just deployed with ka-bars ya fucking shitting infantbe intellectually honest, at the very least. it’s really not much to ask, i promise

And this ^

The pro-gun crowd has been jerking off on this story all day. This Marine two responses above me lays it out pretty nicely: Yes, there is a BIG fucking difference between a weapon that injured 17 people and one that killed 26.
“A knife is a killer, just like a gun. Pretending like it isn’t, and that guns are worse, is a ridiculous notion.” Yeah, bro. Sooooooo ridiculous to imply that an incident in which no one was killed is better than an incident in which a number of people were killed.

A polyamorous rant

umbersol:

When was the last time
Someone said
You’re only allowed to love one parent. Choose wisely.
You’re only allowed to love one pet. Choose wisely.
You’re only allowed to love one child. Choose wisely.
You’re only allowed to love one sibling.
Choose wisely.

So why do people say
You’re only allowed to love one person.
Choose wisely.

Government has an important role to play in society. And Bread operates on the principle that our federal government has a part to play in ending hunger. Many folks are concerned that the government is doing the church’s job in feeding people. Truth is charity–all charity–amounts to only about 5 percent of the food we distribute to folks in need here in the U.S. The federal government’s nutrition programs, such as school lunches, the WIC program or SNAP – formerly known as food stamps –makes up the other 95 percent. Just to put that into context, that’s $96.9 billion from the government compared to $4.1 billion of food distributed by all charities in 2011. That is a huge gap that charities wouldn’t be able to fill if Congress cuts vital programs. But the best tool to fight hunger is job security with fare wages.

Another selfie, this time with no glasses. I can hardly see without them, and i feel so nerdy with them on. Damned if I do, damned if I don’t right?

In other news, I’m fighting off some sort of sickness, but I’m not entirely sure of what it is. Its got me feeling beaten and a bit depressed even, but it will pass and get better, I hope.
