In all seriousness, why the fuck do the American police own shit like this!? Either they think they really need it, or they know they’re using something ridiculously overkill and heavy handed. Both possibilities are disturbing.
Given that we’re talking about the people indiscriminately using tear gas on innocent civilians, I can guess which disturbing possibility is the case here though…
And where are the people who always whine about their tax money when other people are talking about healthcare (or, you know, literally any other good use for tax money)?

Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked

Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.

Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!

I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

  3. Spring In Hallerbos Forest, Belgium
  4. Autumn Path In Kyoto, Japan

  6. Bamboo Path In Kyoto, Japan
  7. Hitachi Seaside Park Path In Japan
  8. Dark Hedges In Ireland

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


Note for clarification: Cornish dialect and Cornish language are very different things. Cornish dialect is English, but contains various Cornish language words. The language is actually a Gaelic language, closely related to Welsh and Bretton, and more distantly related to Scots and Irish.

Sand which acts as a non-Newtonian fluid? I wonder how that works…

A lot of boys in my poker circle are mathematicians who play on probability. I don’t have that kind of brain, so I rely on instinct. But I recently found out that poker and cards in general go way back in my family gene pool. 

uh, Natalie Dormer looks like Maisie Williams in that top picture

Supernovae put out such a huge amount of light when they explode, that they can briefly outshine an entire galaxy.

Radio and television broadcasting may be only a brief passing phase in our technological development. When we imagine alien civilizations broadcasting signals with radio telescopes, are we any different from earlier generations who imagined riding cannon shells to the moon? Civilizations even slightly more advanced than ours may have already moved on to some other mode of communication, one that we have yet to discover or even imagine. Their messages could be swirling all around us at this very moment, but we lack the means to perceive them just as all of our ancestors, up to a little more than a century ago, would have been oblivious to the most urgent radio signal from another world. 

But there’s another more troubling possibility: Civilizations, like other living things, may only live so long before perishing due to natural causes, or violence, or self-inflicted wounds. Whether or not we ever make contact with intelligent alien life may depend on a critical question: What is the life expectancy of a civilization?
