Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.

Exactly 0 Babies Died From Chicken Pox From 2004-2007 (And It Wasn’t Because They Were Vaccinated)

Parents choose not to protect their children from illness through vaccination for many reasons, and almost none of them are good reasons. Nevertheless, one of the tried and (not) true defenses of this truly unwise decision is this: “Why do you care about whether my kid is vaccinated? It doesn’t affect you.”

We’re officially done with that argument.

Criminal Minds alum Paget Brewster is getting her “Om” on, joining the cast of Amazon’s yoga-centric comedy pilot Down Dog, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Written by Almost Perfect‘s Robin Schiff, Down Dog centers on Logan (One Life to Live grad Josh Casaubon), a laid-back, charming surfer who is left in charge of his ex-girlfriend’s yoga studio. Brewster will play said ex, Amanda. Since exiting Criminal Minds as a series regular, Brewster has shown the funny in gigs on Modern Family and Community, as well as recent passed-on ABC comedy pilots Spy and Saint Francis. As she recently told TVLine, she leans towards “things that really, really excite me and scare me a bit. And that’s what comedy does.”

grown. ass. men.
you scared she gonna strike out yr precious baby boy? OH TOO LATE.

they were doing a special on her on one of the news channels at the gym. i didnt have the headphones so i couldnt hear the story, but one of the photos they showed was of a little girl in the crowd holding up a sign that said “I want to throw like a girl.” For every pathetic, insecure grown man who is threatened by this amazingly talented girl, hopefully there is another little girl who is inspired. But that she has to put up wit this kind of abuse even though she is OBJECTIVELY the best pitcher in the league right now and can throw a ball SEVENTY MILES PER HOUR is absolutely uncalled for. She is truly phenomenal, and those dads can all go eat shit and live

Go on with your bad self

I love that, in a brief interview I got to see, she stated that her main goal was to have more girls play ball so that “we could maybe get our own locker room.” Like, that’s all she wanted, and then she went back to talking about how winning is a TEAM effort and that the reporter should interview the rest of the team, too.I LOVE THIS ONE.

Ponder this: our government is systematically collecting vast amounts of data and information on US citizens and foreigners around the world and analyzing it for threats. But it is not systematically collecting or analyzing information of US citizens killed by government authorities and actively blocks citizens who try.

How many of these police killings are there?

Planets of Our Solar System

Our solar system officially has eight planets and one star: the Sun. The discovery of an object larger than Pluto in 2005 rekindled the debate over whether such objects, belonging to the Kuiper Belt – a collection of icy bodies located beyond Neptune – should be called planets. Pluto and other large members of the Kuiper Belt are now considered “dwarf planets.”
