I DARE you not to laugh when the song starts playing.
So this is the video my prof accidentally showed us when he wanted an example of Spock doing a mind meld. He just stood there a bit flustered while he let the video go on for about 45 seconds, as if he was just hoping for an actual mind meld to happen.
What I would give to have been a fly on the wall, seriously. :-D
THIS IS BEAUTIFUL
has this been done yet?
At least three dead in two shootings at Jewish centers in Kansas. 15-year-old boy reported to be critically wounded; police report one person was in custody; man reportedly yelled ‘Heil Hitler’ when police arrested him.
Reblogging again to add:
Also, non-Jews, please spread this. People will forget about it otherwise. The police say they aren’t ready to call it a hate crime, despite the fact that witnesses have said that the man was asking people if they were Jewish and waiting for an affirmative response before shooting. The more people who are paying attention to this story the harder it will be for it to be swept under the rug.
A lot of people are currently very excited about the recent Cap movie. If you believe that it was worthwhile for Steve Rogers to fight fictional nazis, please show that you care about the people harmed by those in the real world who still agree with Nazi ideology. If you can get super excited and make tons of posts about Cap, then you can do this too, right? (obviously there are people who are upset/triggered by this stuff, which is an entirely different situation. but if you can spread the word please do)
This happened about 30 miles from me. WHAT THE FUCK, KANSAS? How am I just now hearing about this? And on Tumblr?You know what would be great? It would be great if people would wait 30 seconds before posting things like, “The police say they aren’t ready to call it a hate crime, despite the fact that witnesses have said that the man was asking people if they were Jewish and waiting for an affirmative response before shooting,”when that’s what they’re calling it. It’s so very annoying that news updates about stories that are not even 24 hours old practically apologize for not having the whole thing done and sorted by the time they’re reporting. It’s ludicrous. Slow down, people. Give it time to be dealt with.

I have never wanted to be a snake so bad in my life.
A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.
"ooh! a poor person in need of help! i better make sure they get arrested!" to me, that’s the issue that’s most troubling. Apart from that, the statue, and the idea behind it, is one of the parts of Christianity that even a grouchy atheist like me has to admire…
