A Pythagorean cup looks like a normal drinking cup, except that the bowl has a central column in it. It was supposedly invented by Pythagoras of Samos (yes, that one). It allows the user to fill the cup with wine up to a certain level. If the user fills only to that level, the imbiber may enjoy a drink in peace. If, however, the user gets greedy, the cup dumps all the wine into the unfortunate victim’s lap.

Pythagoras sounds like a real asshole.

Movie Quote of the Week: Paris is Burning (1990)

"When someone has rejection from their mother and father, their family, they - when they get out in the world - they search. They search for someone to fill that void."

This part made me joke up.

makes me think of the kids i work with, where social workers and therapists say dumb shit like “they need to work on their issues before they can get adopted.”

like denying kids permanent connections with parents until they “get better” will aid the curative process

acting like kids don’t know how to fuck each other to find that permanent connection elsewhere

Text

so when a social worker tells me a kid “doesn’t need an attorney” you know damn well that social worker has some shit to hide

Police pick people out of the crowd, then rush forward. Frightening.

realistically the space under my bed is very small so if a monster did in fact live there it would have to also be very small

it would be some kind of baby monster

i would have to look after it

Today in Solidarity (9.27.14): The Lost Voices campground since Mike Brown’s murder was ransacked by police… so petty. #staywoke #farfromover

Don’t know who the Lost Voices are yet? They’re the youth brigade on the frontlines of Ferguson, leading the fight for justice for Mike Brown. (Many of those tweets you see on my posts are from LV.) Yesterday, their campsite was raided without notice. These young leaders have been under constant attack from police since protests began, but yesterday was a clear intimidation move. Well guess what— Lost Voices will not be intimidated or stopped.  Please make sure you’re showing them your love and support. Consider donating to their efforts today.

So last night cops arrested 7 protesters, then turned to the rest of the protesters and told them “we’ll release them without bond if you leave (stop protesting)”

They literally turned their own dubiously legal arrests into a hostage situation. They took hostages. Ferguson PD is a terrorist organization and they aren’t even trying to hide that fact any more.

Look at this

Protesters are angry about these strange negotiations to release protesters. What kind of practice is this?
