This is a pretty decent list of who not to date, particularly the last point: Anyone under the age of 25: they are stupid. Dating sucks anyway and I think I’m going to take a year off. That’s a reasonable goal, isn’t it?

thedetroitfoodie asked: Yea, def check out the Thai food fair! They do them twice a month thru October and the food is really fantastic.

feministdisney: Women were “dramatically under-represented” in the United States’ 100 top-grossing films last year, accounting for 33 percent of all characters at a time when women made up nearly 51 percent of the U.S. population, according to a study released last week.

The only thing it’s really good for is as a source of entertainment on girl nights… Now I’m going to go drink one of those little sample bottles of wine mixed with diet cranberry pop and then maybe walk...

I know this is an opinion piece, but it’s also one of the dumbest things I’ve ever read. Way to blame the circumstances of this particular reservation on a beer company. And not, you know, US policy and culture.

“Now you see my fists?” Fullerton police officer Manny Ramos asked Thomas while slipping on a pair of latex gloves. “Yeah, what about them?” Thomas responded. “They are getting ready to fuck you up,” said Ramos, a burly cop who appears to outweigh Thomas by 100 pounds… The cops keep telling him to put his hands behind his back and lay on his stomach, but they are both laying on top of him,...
