Something black

I'm pretty sure that people died today just to acquire more shit they don't need. Anyway, this photo is of Bastet an Egyptian Goddess. I'm not particularly fond of cats, but I make an exception in this case since she's kind of a protector. I swear in real life she's black, not brown.






Just the head... It's not that kind of blog.

Grateful


I keep promising myself that I'm going to post these photos to my blog the very same day I take them (at the very least) but it never works. So today I will promise myself that I will eventually up load all the photo a day photos I take. That should be an easy promise to keep.






Also, what I'm grateful for: Living somewhere where human rights actually mean something.

Work and play







This is what I do when I'm dicking around in class. It was great because I was in a journalism class and therefore couldn't be accused of slacking!Also, the headline was not specifically chose, it's just the one that was up when I remembered I had to take the picture.

Something awesome?


I was directed to this blog* by some really great people and fell in love. It's kinky, and it mocks Cosmo. How much more awesome can you get?

Something I did this weekend

I found this video on youtube and thought I'd like to give it a shot. It was fairly easy. 


 I had fun firing TNT across my blasting ground to explode the cliff on the other side. Then I though "Double the cannon, double the blast double the fun!" and came up with this set up.

Two TNT cannons activated by the same button with a .4 second delay between cannon one and cannon two firing.

You can check the action out here.

The last thing I bought?


White people mourning Romney?

A tumblr that has simultaneously entertained me and made me weep for America. What gets me is that people would have such a strong reaction to the loss of someone who had managed to alienate 47% of the population and the majority of women and African-American voters (no really, Romney got a whopping 6% of the black vote).

I get it that his supporters felt that he was the best man for the job, but the reactions to his loss have been simply over the top. I mean, really, a death notice for America stating cause of death as suicide? Have you really been so brainwashed by the rape apologizing, female dehumanizing, racism of the far right that a moderate democrat in office is the death of a nation?

Obama is not Hitler and he will not commit genocide just because people disagree with him. Quite the opposite, he is far more capable of accepting opposing viewpoints than many of the so called "freedom" crowd. And he doesn't cry persecution every time someone say "I disagree".

He is neither Muslim (or as I have seen it “muslin”) nor Kenyan. This has been dead and beaten since 2004. If you can’t accept that, I suggest you spend the next 4 years sequestered in your bomb shelter so the rest of us can live in peace.

He is not a socialist dictator. Yes he has some socialist ideas, like insurance companies shouldn't be able to refuse to cover someone because of some so called "pre-existing" condition like being too tall or having a uterus. But if you really think Obama is creating a Commie Utopia, I strongly suggest you move to an actual communist country and see what the differences are.

Here's the thing, before Obama we had to put up with eight years of this guy named Bush. Someone that sunk the country into trillions of dollars’ worth of debt, started a war with every country that looked at us cross-eyed, and did everything in his power to screw over anyone who didn't fit in with the white, rich, middle aged demographic. Yes, I know the right has been working to erase these eight years from memory, but I haven't forgotten and neither will the rest of the bleed heart liberals. It didn't kill (most) of us to deal with Bush, I think you poor, persecuted Christian right could handle living in a country led by a man with some sense of social justice for another four years. Who knows, you might learn a thing or two.

Outside my window?

The best shot I could get when I finally remembered I needed to take a picture was this.

Man-made


"A banana?" you ask. Yes, the bananas we know the best in today's world was created by human controlled selection over the course of a few hundred years. This information is painful to people like Ray Comfort, a man who made a name for himself by claiming the banana was proof of an intelligent designer because of how easy it is to eat. Another knife in his story is that there is evidence that bananas have been cultivated for at least 8,000 to 10,000 years. If Young Earth Creationists are to be believed, that means humans have been eating bananas since before they were created.

Also, November 11 is Remembrance Day. So a moment to remember those who were killed in the line of duty, fighting for the country they loved so dearly.

A Merry Band

I can't live without my Merry Band now. Well, maybe I could I would rather not. They keep me entertained with White People Mourning Romney and similar idiocy from the Christian Right.

Elections!

The best thing I've seen all night. I just about cried tears of joy when I saw that Obama had gotten more than 270 electoral votes.

Congratulations Mr. President, maybe one day we can see one of your daughters achieve the same honor.

Coffee

I woke up this morning made myself some coffee, and took a picture of it. Then Jr Noto decided to do some banana painting and I ended up forgetting about it until noon. 'Tis the life of a parent.
