Six years is a long break.

Republicans don’t want gun reform. They don’t even want to have the debate.

dear food bloggers








if you mention health in your recipe, i will assume the recipe is Austerity Food and does not taste very good. i will not give the recipe a chance. i will not try it. there are fifty thousand other search results. i will continue searching until i find a recipe that appears to be written with the intent of making food that tastes as good as possible, and also doesn’t expect me to do something like scramble three eggs in a single teaspoon of flavorless oil.

by the way, a piece of life advice: a generous splash of olive oil will keep the eggs from sticking to the pan (i know you burnt three or four batches before you got that pretty picture), taste really good (FAT IS FLAVOR say all the real chefs), is good for your heart (yes really), and if you’re on a diet (which you shouldn’t be) you can burn off that many calories by folding a basket of laundry. it’s not like you shanked an orphan. please calm the fuck down.

It takes far more than that to burn a “generous” amount of olive oil. While it may not be terrible for you, it’s still an increase in caloric intake.

i can’t believe i was reblogged by a blog with the tagline ‘anti fat acceptance, obesity kills’. i am honestly furious, and that’s hard to do on the internet these days.

take your pro-eating-disorder, anti-feminist, anti-health bullshit far away from my posts. SHAME KILLS.

fatphobia is the reason I didn’t know until Jesse started posting about it that most of my weight gain is from not getting ENOUGH calories.

fuck blogs like the one up there. fuck em.

since adding ~200 calories a day to my food intake i have had more energy, had an easier time working out, done longer and more productive workouts, and in 2 weeks i have gained noticeable muscle tone. not from trying to live on chia seeds and kale, but from eating regular food like egg and toast for breakfast, pbj and fruit for lunch, chicken and rice for supper, and adding a high-protein snack like yogurt and red bean jam or cheese and nuts.

diet culture is just purity theater. calorie counting is cargo cult medicine. your body wants to be active and healthy, stop punishing it and start cooperating with it.

i’m gonna bring this back. if you’re struggling with your weight, try ADDING a small snack to your daily intake. your body is probably in famine mode and conserving energy, storing every spare calorie as fat under the assumption that you’re experiencing famine conditions and the food is running out.

repeat: dieting convinces your body there’s a famine.

your body responds by hoarding calories.

this is an evolved survival trait.

you will be fat and fatigued because your metabolism is preparing for weeks or months with no food at all.

stop starving yourself. it’s not working.

The diet and fitness health industries are basically a two-man con. Diet says: you’re so fat, cut your calories. Fitness says: you’re so out of shape, you need to exercise more. So you cut your daily caloric intake to 1500, and you go to the gym, and you can barely go fifteen minutes before your heart is pounding and you can’t catch your breath and you’re about to fall off your treadmill, what is wrong with you? How do you fix this?

Diet says: You’re so fat! Cut calories!

Fitness says: You’re so out of shape! Exercise more!

You need energy to exercise. The energy content of food is measured in calories.

It’s a brilliant way to part people from their money, and also slowly suck all the vitality out of them. Like, seriously. The average adult human burns over a calorie a minute just paying the metabolic rent on having a warm-blooded body. There are 1440 minutes in a day. If you want to get fit, that’s a great goal, but don’t do it while cutting your caloric intake down to starvation levels. Calories are literally energy. You need energy to exercise. You need energy to live.

Texas shooter was not a victim. He built bombs at home. He wore swastikas. He wore a ‘born to kill’ shirt.

The shooter had a father who never taught him to respect women. Shooter had a father who did not lock his weapons.

The whole TX killer family needs be used an an example of systemic failure.

A fun and useful way to keep inventory!

We made a series of cards that contain all of the items from the equipment packs you start the game with (eg, when you pick warlock, you can choose from the scholar’s or dungeoneer’s pack) and little themed boxes for the items to be kept in!

It started because at the end of every session, I would hold all the treasure cards the DM had given to me with a paperclip on my stack of character sheets, and by the time the next session rolled around, everyone’s stuff was all over the pile. We’d have to sift through to figure out who owned what, so I made little boxes for everyone’s items, then started making item cards, and here we are!

They’re available as individual packs, or you can get the full set here!

There’s also a free download of the blank item card template here

!!! This is so great!!!!

@aiambia do you think this would help us not forget all the neat shit you give us?

I love this quote. I love this movie.

This scene impressed me so much when I first saw it. It still fills me with… idk something. I love it.

The first time I truly understood this scene I was filled with a terrifying understanding.

It fills you with wonder

Men in Black is an underrated movie <3



i am physically, mentally and emotionally ready to enter a new phase in my life






Too depressed to be awake? Not depressed enough for a Depression Nap™? Welcome to Existential Crisis Wrapped in Blanket!

Gladly I do not suffer from depression however may I add, from my own experience:

Too anxious to fall asleep?  Too overwhelmed to get up and do things: Welcome to Blanket Paralysis!

May I add?

Too hyper-focused to remember bedtime? Too distracted to find the bed? Welcome to…was that a squirrel? How did a f#cking squirrel get in?

Did you mean “May I add” or “May I ADD”?


The fall of fandom etiquette and the rise of the ship war


This is the moment that birthed zero-sum shipping, a kind of blind gamesmanship that only values a ship for whether or not it wins, not whether or not it is enjoyable. Add in the peculiar moralizing […] and, voila, you’ve got the recipe for fans antagonizing creators over appearing to support ships that are, in their eyes, morally unacceptable.

I know I’ve posted this before, but it seems appropriate for World Goth Day. This was in the very early 90s. Mattel thought it would be a good idea to have “Barbie” do in-store appearances. How could I pass that up? I came in on my day off, just to have my photo taken with her.

This is why you should have a cat y’all. Egyptians believed that cats repelled evil spirits.

Cats are evil spirits. They’re just the strongest so all others must bow to their greatness.

Actually according to legend, cats are guardians of the Underworld. So once you are dead if you try to sneak back into the land of the living they send you back where you came from. They protect the living from the dead.

If you ever wonder why a cat stares off into the wild blue yonder and then bolts off for “no reason…”

That cat even looks like it’s accusing him of something like wait a Fucking minute here are you dead did you really think you could slip that shit passed me



I… I just realized Shrek was released almost 20 years ago

I’m already having a quarter-to-mid-life crisis as I, an almost-28-year-old, watch Shrek at 3am due to painsomnia, and this DID NOT HELP.




I’m so tired of every show that takes place in the past (wild west, medieval, pirates etc) ALWAYS having so much sexual violence towards women like writers can cry “oh it’s realism” all you want but it’s very transparent how realism only applies when you want to hurt women on screen. If we’re talking staying realistic, why doesn’t everyone have brown teeth? Or bad skin? Or dying of dysentery? Just admit y'all want an excuse to brutalize women on screen lol

This pisses me off so much. A lot of the time if you mention realism would also involve women having unshaved legs or pits, or bushy eyebrows, or syphilis, the answer is often “well that’s gross, no one wants to read about/see that” and like…. If you think that women being ugly is grotesque, but brutal depictions of rape aren’t, then I don’t really know what to say to you other than stay the fuck away from me.

The reality is, for all its pro-family rhetoric, the US is a remarkably harsh place for families, and particularly for mothers.

I’m an admin for a Facebook group which is centred around an aspect of social activism. So, the topic of banning plastic straws comes up. Okay right?

No, not really because it turns out the majority of these members are ableist fucks.

Some people politely pointed out that a total ban on plastic straws would be bad as a lot of disabled people need to use them, and would struggle to use reusable straws. Here are some of the replies to that:

“good grief we’re not talking about disabled people. Come on now.” - well you’re talking about legislation which would directly impact disabled people?

“Just let the rest of us attempt to save animals and the planet.” - so if you’re disabled there’s no point you attempting to fight for any social cause?

“There must be a page somewhere for disabled people who need straws that you can support. This is a … group trying to make a change for the better.” - to paraphrase, if your disabled or care about disabled people, you’re not welcome in this space so kindly fuck off

“My opinion is this is a selfish request on the behalf of disabled people when the entire planet is at stake.” - i.e if you have to use a plastic straw you enjoy watching the planet die, and you’re selfish

“The line has to be drawn somewhere and I’m sure disabled people will survive, the planet won’t.” - people tend not to survive if they can’t drink anything?

I can’t stand how ableist most activist communities are

Like people really do not give a fuck about disabled folks

Exactly, it’s such a big problem.

They just have the mindset of, ‘oh I’m not disabled so I’m not going to bear disabled people in mind when I talk about these topics’

And then if someone happens to mention disabled people they get all angry and defensive, because lord above, now they have to think about someone outside of themselves.

Is that not what social activism is? Having empathy for other people?
