Conformity Is The Deformity Of Individuality. Amber Jay. I love cookies. And apple juice. And weight lifting. And Tom & Jerry. Laid back people are scientifically proven to live longer, so are shorter people, so I'll live forever. My passion is life. Period.
In the past few months, debate surrounding the use of racial caricatures as pro sports mascots has reached a fever pitch. Just ask the Washington Redskins, who’ve endured significant backlash for both their refusal to change their name and their half-assed attempts to placate their critics.
But a few miles west, fans of the MLB’s Cleveland Indians are taking a stand. In a motion of solidarity, a small but growing number have been “de-Chiefing” their paraphernalia by removing the offensive “Chief Wahoo” mascot from caps and jerseys that bear its likeness.
it’s a start!
History is a lie
Religion is a control system
Money is a hoax
Debt is a fiction
Media is manipulation
Government is a corporation
The system is a lie
On April 30, Emory University will be offering a free online course on The Art and Archaeology of Ancient Nubia.
The class will reveal one of the most dynamic, yet little known cultures of the ancient world. It will explore the geography and archaeology of Nubia, Egypt’s neighbor to the south and home to a series of remarkable and innovative civilizations. It will cover the period from the earliest inhabitants of the Nile Valley (Paleolithic through Neolithic and domestication of plants and animals), and continue until the advent of Christianity.
The class is a combination of video lectures from five to 20 minutes in length with images of sites and objects along with maps and plans. There will also be some film clips as well. There will be homework-style quizzes to help students measure learning and explore the materials in more depth. There are several extra credit options, and there will be a final exam at the end of the course.
The course will last a total of 8 weeks and is taught in English with English subtitles. There will be a verified certificate of completion at the end of the course. Peter Lacovara, Senior Curator of Ancient Egyptian, Nubian, and Near Eastern Art at Michael C. Carlos Museum of Emory University will be teaching the class.
Please keep this circulating. Cops are getting more and more brazen, know your rights!

I’ont e’em mess w/ Sarah Silverman but on THIS? Yes.
Can’t fuck with her at all, but a broken clock is right twice a day.
I want to apologize to all the women I have called beautiful
before I’ve called them intelligent or brave.
I am sorry I made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit.
From now on I will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because I don’t think you’re beautiful
but because I need you to know
you are more than that.
