Yahoo has a problem: it has no idea what it’s doing, or how it’s going to do it (outside of teenage dream hires). Some people who claim intimate knowledge say the company is going to do it by throwing a serious Hail Mary: buying Tumblr for $1,000,000,000. That’s one billion.
I don’t think I ever wished for a rumor to be untrue so badly. Imagine if suddenly all of Tumblr resembled Yahoo Answers. Or Yahoo’s rabid racist, bigoted comments. Or Yahoo’s awful forums full of spam. You get the idea…
Obligatory “Best of Yahoo”: HOW IS BABBY FORMED? (Only as an example of possible things to come…).
What’s sadder is not even wanting to escape but just wanting to survive.
ONLY JUST NOW
DUDE AS A KID I REALLY WATED ME SOME USEFUL GODDAMN SKINTONES
WHERE WERE YOU 15 YEARS AGO.
DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY ORANGE PEOPLE I HAD.
We had these when I was a kid! I think it was crayons though and they had hair colors too. The only problem I noticed was they didn’t really have good red hair colors.
I actually think this was pretty responsible. Rather than banning it outright, which would result in kids wanting to rebel even more, she offers it in her home where she can control the amount people drink. Good on ya, Mrs George. You’re a cool mom.
The girls say I’m like her. I only saw the movie once and thought they were calling me a dork, but eh, I see gifs so much on Tumblr and have yet to see a scene where we’re not alike.
Yeah, my parents were like this too. Pretty much the same rule. I didn’t really take them up on the offer. I sipped champagne a couple times, decided it was gross, and had little to no interest. I had a wine cooler as a teenager but didn’t really enjoy it.
I didn’t actually get drunk for the first time until I was 21. I’ve never passed out or blacked out, done anything dangerously impulsive (Except I’ve been mouthy at angry drunks. Does that count?), I’ve only thrown up once (partly I think because I tried to eat some gross eggs the next morning), and I don’t drink regularly anymore. I haven’t been drunk in months because I’m scared I’ll make a bad decision or be tempted to drink myself stupid because of the shit I’m going through. I tried to do that once and quit.
My family does have a history of alcoholism and one death that happened indirectly because of it. But I don’t think that’s the result of my parents or grandparents being lenient like that. Most of my family is okay because they know the risk and drink in moderation.
Honestly I think it’s a good call in general but I think it’s important that the parents still act like parents and set limits and boundaries. Like… getting drunk with your kids or letting other kids drink is stupid. =/
I bet you did.
Did you estimate what mpg your car is getting? Did you figure out how many hamburgers you could get for six bucks? Did you think about how long it would take you to get somewhere given the speed and distance? Did you plan a meal so all the components would be done at the same time? Did you encounter anything on sale? Did you figure out how many groceries you could get for how much money you had?
There are about a million other daily, unconscious tasks that use algebra or at least algebraic thinking. Just because you weren’t writing out an equation or employing variables doesn’t mean you weren’t using the skills that algebra and other math courses taught you.
Science and math aren’t important because you’re going to need to know the exact steps of photosynthesis or the quadratic formula. They’re important because they teach you scientific and mathematical literacy and rational thinking, and that is sorely needed in a world where charlatans and cheats or people with a political or religious agenda can get away with all manner of pseudoscience and bullshit because people don’t have enough scientific literacy or critical thinking skills to accurately weigh the arguments or even discern where they fail logically.
So study math and science, and art, and literature, and history, and politics, not because you’re going to need it or it’s going to do something specific for you, but because an uninformed populace is bad for the world.
Bless this commentary.
That’s a cool post and all but I still didn’t do any of that stuff.
Do people who are good at math plan stuff all the time? And figure stuff out? I never do and sometimes it sucks.
I guess I do MPG and calculate sales and how much of things I can get. But I’m pretty bad at it. And I had no idea it was algebra.
tw for rape culture and suicide
So apparently that messed-up guy who used to post here and on reddit about how “friendzoning” should be illegal has a new blog and is posting about how his mother is evil for not having sex with him.
dude he thinks having a girlfriend and sex are basic needs
having a girlfriend is not a basic need
he thinks his mother is killing him by not fulfilling his sexual desires
omfg if it’s such a NEED why not pay a prostitute?
reeks of troll
but you never fucking know with these people
Yeah so I don’t think this often but in this guy’s case I actually kinda hope he goes through with those “suicidal thoughts”. I mean, seriously? We don’t want this guy to breed. Holy hell.
This is a parody, isn’t it?
1. Yes. He’s awful and wrong on about a billion different levels.
2. That’s really horrible. I just hope he can’t hurt anybody. Apparently he already has.
3. I fucking hope so.
Because yikes. …Honestly, can something be done about that “multiple people will die”? comment? Can you report that to the FBI or is that not a specific enough threat?
Seems like he’s not well-liked on Reddit, if I’m reading this correctly and that really is a -900+ karma. IDK, I don’t know much about reddit because when a site basically covers for pedophiles and people who like to post other messed-up shit like that then it’s not a site I care to be part of.
Anyway, I don’t know if he’s a troll. I hope he is. But I just don’t know anymore. Somebody was assuring me that he’s real but maybe he’s just very persistent.
I heard he was the same as this guy, though:
At least he’s rated down in that horrible shithole though.
”Downvotes only rolled in after it was linked in multiple other subs. Before that the MRAs had given it a very comfy +72.”
straight allies kiss their same-sex friends to make a statement in a protest or at pride and get praised for being so brave and doing so much for gay rights
meanwhile many gay people avoid PDA in their everyday lives in fear of homophobic harassment, and there are some who choose not to attend those events lest their homophobic friends, relatives or employers find out
Don’t think us “straight allies” don’t catch shit from coworkers, friends, employers, etc
Boohoo! Well then you can just say you’re straight! Having to debate someone else’s rights during lunch break at work because of your conviction is not quite the same as having to defend your own fucking existence or even avoid talking about your personal life altogether. You’re not attacked for who you are, you’re attacked for what you did, see the difference? Getting shit for doing something ~gay in public is different because ~acting gay~ is not an essential part of your life. You don’t miss much if you stop going to pride, it’s not your event. Not being able to kiss your friend for shits and giggles (or for your shitty politics) without public scorn is not the same as not being able to kiss your girlfriend or boyfriend or partner or wife or husband in your actual everyday life.
Straight allies who make it about themselves and their nonexistent struggle don’t need to catch shit, they are shit.
These are not the kind of allies we need or want.

a homeless guy just said to me “do you tell jokes to make people laugh or to make people think you’re funny” and that is the most profound shit ive ever experienced
