If you don’t think this is just one of the most adorable things ever, you probably kick puppies and punch kittens in your spare time.

I just died.  Cutest thing ever!

these comments hurt my brains… i’m just here to remind you that this is a sculpture/model and not an actual polar bear. newborn polar bears are pink and have closed eyes and are awkward just like nearly every other newborn mammal… >_> don’t be dumb

Gun Background Checks Face Long Odds In Senate

wilwheaton:

Even the most popular gun control measures seem to be going nowhere in the Senate.

Despite a concerted push from President Obama, Democratic leaders see no clear path to securing the 60 votes needed to break a promised Republican filibuster and ensure passage of legislation mandating background checks for gun purchases. Along with getting no help from Republicans, numerous Democrats facing re-election next year are skittish.

Reid can use a procedural option and open debate on the bill with 50 votes, thanks to a temporary provision in the bipartisan rules change enacted in January. That would guarantee Republicans two amendments, which they’ll likely use to poison the legislation, but Democrats could defeat those amendments with 41 votes — not a hard task. But even then, they’ll need 60 votes to end debate and proceed to a final up-or-down vote on the legislation. And that’s why Republicans are so confidently forecasting failure for the bill.

“I think that legislation is going nowhere,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told CNN on Sunday.

The same day on NBC, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) called the idea of mandatory background checks for gun purchases “a bridge too far” — even as nine in 10 Americans say they support it.

90% of Americans support comprehensive background checks for gun purchases. Put ten people in a room, and one of them opposes. Just one. If you had ten people in a room, nine of them wanted to pass a law, and one of them didn’t, what would happen in a democracy?

Oh, that’s right. In a democracy, the majority rules. Last time I checked, 90% wasn’t just a majority … it was an overwhelming majority.

Congress has a responsibility to reflect the will of the American people, and any representative or senator who does not work to pass background check legislation is violating his or her duty to his or her constituents. 

This is absolutely infuriating. A tiny, tiny, statistically-meaningless group of radical extremists are deliberately making life more dangerous for all of us who live in this country. 

Dear Congress: you were elected to govern, and to heed the will of the American People. The American People have spoken as loudly and clearly as we ever have about anything, and your refusal to hear us is sickening, and un-American.

The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money.

Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.

But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that’d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years’ time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.

This was the Captain Samuel Vimes ‘Boots’ theory of socioeconomic unfairness.

This is one of the best breakdowns I’ve ever seen of how expensive it is to be poor.

This is why I love Terry Pratchett.

I love how Tumblr teaches us how to be perfect criminals.

Also, if you’re burying a full body, make sure you bury them vertically. Satellites orbiting earth look for holes that are approx. 6ft long because that’s suspicious. Ideally though, drain your body of fluids in a tub ((mix fluids with bleach and let them soak before draining and take precautions to keep your house from smelling like death from your sink and whatnot. Draining the body also keeps decomp at bay a bit and makes it easier to portion)) and cut it to bits. It’s easier to bury a head than a whole body, and takes less time so you don’t have to tell your neighbors, “Oh, I’m night gardening!”
Also, if a dog happens across it, it’s more likely it will devour a single body part than all of your ex-husband.
Another method is to put it into a septic tank. They’re a plethora of bacteria, and the smell of waste covers the smell of decomposition very well.
You should also destroy all teeth, massacre the face and burn fingerprints/remove finger tips to keep from identifying by anything other than DNA.
…I didn’t come up with these ideas, just what I’ve gleaned from reading on the internet.

i used to joke about Tumblr teaching us how to get away with murder, but fuck, man

the thing is when i see this i want to go kill a man just because i have the knowledge

reblogging for an eventually later use…

Reblogging because well, it’s tuesday. We all know what kind of shit happens on these days. 

Reblogging because it is Wednesday. 
And I WAS going to add my own advice to this, but Firefox randomly crashed in the middle of typing up of my best body hiding/disposal advice. FF rarely crashes on me, so I’m just going to take the advice of the ‘Verse here and keep that to myself.

Solar could power world using only 1% of land

The findings, released by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) during the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi in January, are based on seven case studies in India, Indonesia, Madagascar, Mexico, Morocco, South Africa, Turkey.
The countries involved in the research were chosen because of their potential for widespread development of solar photovoltaics, sunny climates, varied demographics, natural environments, and suitable economies and political structures.
