standing in the way of control

autistic plural collective: shy and bookish, but friendly.

quote

Why is it so hard for people to type an extra s when they write about Manning? We updated our nomenclature for “Snoop Lion” and “the Artist Formerly Known as Prince.” “Ali Lohan” and “Lil’ Bow Wow” became “Aliana” and “Bow Wow” to reflect personal growth. We accept typographical requests from branded products like iPhone, PowerPoint, and eHarmony — and from branded humans Ke$ha, A$AP Rocky, and ‘N Sync. (The last being unusual even without the asterisk.) The idiosyncrasies of capitalism, apparently, are more compelling than a human’s self-professed gender.

Read it again:  EVERY.  SINGLE.  REPUBLICAN.  Yes, that includes women. 

I do not understand Republican women because I don’t get how you can be in a party, even as a super privileged white woman, knowing that they WILL turn on you. That their agenda to maintain the violent supremacy of white men will eventually whip around and slap you in the face.
Your party’s congressional representatives didn’t think your work and time and life were as valuable as men’s.
HOW THE FUCK ARE YOU A REPUBLICAN, WOMAN? What kind of states rights, purse clutching bullshit is so tempting that you’ll stay in a party that has clearly made it known you are inferior to them?

Meet Sherlock, the appropriately named beagle tasked by the Royal Dutch Airlines with returning items forgotten on planes by passengers flying into Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
"We train for muscle strength, endurance and, of course, socialization," says Dirk Van Driel, Sherlock’s trainer.
"When you see the reactions of the passengers, that really is amazing."
Judging by the collective “awww” that rings out through the arrivals hall as Sherlock uses his remarkable sniffing powers to track down the owner of a forgotten iPhone, the dog is a hit.

Sherlock!

I’ve seen him! Every airport should have a lost property dog :D
