Guess who made the FAA’s Temporary Flight Restriction list from today until next week

Ferguson

wow. so that means journalists can’t even fly down there. I just saw that the thisweekinblackness crew had crowdfunded the bread to get down there too

that’s fucking horrendous

flights below 3000 feet are banned, so no helicopters can see what is going on in the city.

Human teeth have been found inside an 18th century statue of Christ.
Specialists from Mexico’s National School of Restoration discovered eight teeth after X-raying the statue of the Lord of Patience, which usually sits in the parish of San Bartolo Cuautlalpa.

A fish slingshot for helping our finned friends get over dams is now being tested in the wild: 

"Originally designed for fruit, Whooshh turned its technology into a tool to help safely send fish over dams blocking the course on the Columbia river in Washington state. Under tests right now with the Department of Energy and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Whooshh tubes could be shooting more fish over dams in the near future. A test this past summer showed that fish will voluntarily enter the tube. When they swim into the entrance, the vacuum sucks them in and gives them initial boost; after that, elevated pressure behind the fish keeps them moving at about 15 to 22 miles per hour till they go flying out the other end."

You can watch a whole video about how this crazy fish cannon works, or read more about it here.

See, Rowling largely operates Harry’s generation in a clear system of parallels to the previous generation, Marauders and all. Harry is his father—Quidditch star, a little pig-headed sometimes, an excellent leader. Ron is Sirius Black—snarky and fun, loyal to a fault, mired in self-doubts. Hermione is Remus Lupin—book smart and meticulous, always level-headed, unfailingly perceptive. Ginny is Lily Evans—a firecracker, clever and kind, unwilling to take excuses. Draco Malfoy is Severus Snape—a natural foil to Harry, pretentious, possessed of the frailest ego and also deeper sense of right and wrong when it counts. And guess what? Neville Longbottom is Peter Pettigrew.

Neville is a perfect example of how one single ingredient in the recipe can either ruin your casserole (or stew, or treacle tart, whatever you like), or utterly perfect your whole dish. Neville is the tide-turner, the shiny hinge. And all because he happens to be in the same position as Wormtail… but makes all the hard choices that Pettigrew refused the first time around. Other characters are in similar positions, but none of them go so far as Neville. None of them prove that the shaping of destiny is all on the individual the way he does.

Guys, seriously. Signal boost. I needed this the other night, and a few weeks ago I was talking with someone who needed it. This is the best freaking thing ever. 

Always.

NO NO NO. 

DO NOT USE IMALIVE. 

THEY ARE CONNECTED WITH “TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS” WHICH IS AN EXTREME CHRISTIAN GROUP THAT IS RLY SHITTY TO LGBTQ YOUTH AMONG OTHER TERRIBLE THINGS (I’M PRETTY SURE THEY’RE A SCAM AS WELL) 

IMALIVE IS NOT A GOOD THING. 

IF YOU WANT TO TALK TO SOMEONE ABOUT THAT STUFF BUT CAN’T USE THE PHONE. PLEASE USE CRISISCHAT.ORG ISNTEAD. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT USE IMALIVE THEY ARE DANGEROUS

I reblogged IMALIVE last night. I’m reblogging this post for the correction. Thank you! 

Reblogging for the alternative to imalive. Crisischat.org

I’ll repeat what I said earlier:
THIS IS NOT TRUE
TWLOHA is PRO-LGBTQ. A Christian organization, yes, but HAS CUT ALL FUNDING TO ANY AND ALL ANTI-GAY ORGANIZATIONS FOR YEARS NOW.
It is not dangerous, they are doing what they do to help in any way possible.
Please do not spread this as it may help save a life, too.

Ah! I googled this to try and verify it but I did not dig enough I see. Corrected info above!

I think what people aren’t getting about what’s happening in Ferguson is that if a police force in a city of less than 30,000 people can mobilize into a military force so quickly, imagine what the NYPD could do. Philly PD….

ahhh nothing like jokes centered around children performing sex acts to get a billion notes!! classic. and by that i mean disgusting, keep away from me
