I don’t understand the USA, all your roads are straight and all your cities look like they were planned using Excel.

Everyone knows the only way to build a city is to wait until a bunch of tiny villages merge together over centuries and create a sprawling clusterfuck of winding roads that make no sense and have no street signs and are impossible to navigate unless you’ve lived there all your life.

Boston humbly begs to differ.

There are actually really good reasons for the fact that our mid-west and western cities are like that, and our eastern cities aren’t, and maybe some time when it’s later in the day and I don’t have a pile of shit I need to be going through I’ll write about it. /thinks boring things are FASCINATING

Well, Chicago is that way because back in the day we burned the fuck down, and the ruling class were like THIS IS A PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO BUILD A GRID.

With, you know, just like, five or six diagonal roads that will fuck everything up.

And then there are towns where it’s just like “Yeah, so there used to be a bridge there, but it fell the fuck down, and we never bothered putting it back up, so anyway, the directions depend on the house number and be careful not to drive right into the canal.” or “Instead of bothering to name shit properly, we just added modifiers, so god help you if you leave off any part of the 47th Street Circle West, because it will also be an address.”

This article from Slate has some interesting stuff about how that grid shit serves to isolate neighbors and keep people from building communities, and what can be done about it.

i think it’s a universal truth that everyone in our generation takes pluto’s losing its planetary status as a personal offense

yes

pluto is smaller than russia. why did we ever even consider it a planet?

BECAUSE IT’S A PART OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM

OHANA MEANS FAMILY

OHANA MEANS NO ONE IS LEFT BEHIND

Penises are for urinating and supplying sperm for reproduction, doesn't mean we urinate and fuck in public .. why should breast feeding be okay? fucking typical one sided feminist

Does your penis provide sustenance for another person? No. Can you show your nipples in public if you want to? Yes. Also, breasts are not genitals or sex organs. Only 13 out of 190 cultures world wide consider them to be sexual or even private parts. Don’t even act like this is a feminist thing. This is a babies-have-the-right-to-eat thing.

And if you are a more private person, there are coverings you can buy that just slip around you neck and drape over baby

Okay but I always see men urinating in public.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

In other news cis men continue to complain they can’t show their dicks in public while showing their dicks in public and keep making false equivilances to rant against feminists.

Wow i cant believe that is an actual ask

There are a lot of things to love about this piece, and I find it very easy to identify with. I kind of wonder if those of us out here writing, creating content, sharing knowledge and making articles, art, stories, and games had a battle flag, if it might look something like this.

In Poland, a photographer found a group of cats and dogs hanging out together in the leaves.  Apparently, no one told them that dogs and cats are enemies.:)

This is adorable.  And it looks like two gay dog dads adopted some kitten children.
