Schrödinger opens the box and nothing changes.
The cat lacks vital signs (no heartbeat, no breathing, no brain function): the cat is dead.
The cat exhibits continued animation (blinking, walking, nudging his hand with its little head): the cat is alive.
Schrödinger is afraid.
That has not changed, either.
today in philosophy i learned that witches were portrayed as riding broomsticks because back in the day it was a euphemism for riding the devil’s dick so just think about that before you consider dressing up as a witch for halloween
Can we discuss how really, really cool it is that Olivia Wilde is breastfeeding her son for Glamour magazine?
Can we establish that it’s really amazing that it will be showcasing female breasts for their intended purpose and showcases her as a mother, just doing mother things?
Can I say that I find this unbelievably cool and I’m really glad it’s a thing that’s happening?
Even if I can’t, I’m gonna. Because it is and I’m really glad it’s happening.
This is so great
This suggests that Nicki Minaj also wrote little bits and pieces of “Baby Got Back.” Which would be impressive… except it’s a lie. LIES NICKI MINAJ.
tumblr user literarygingerfox deadass doesn’t know what sampling is smh
I do. I’m also aware that she said every word she spits is hers. I’ve chosen to take her literally. Which makes her wrong.
tumblr user literarygingerfox thinks that Nicki Minaj playing a recording of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s actual voice in her song is the same thing as Nicki Minaj spitting her own verses. tumblr user literarygingerfox deadass doesn’t know what sampling is.
moment of silence for tumblr user literarygingerfox …

Alright guys, this shit got me heated.
So today as I was getting ready for school, I get a call from my youngest sister’s elementary school clinic. My sister gets on the phone and tells me she is sitting out of class because her skirt is too short. “You need to bring me one that goes down to my knees, they said,” is what she told me.
Quick recap: My sister is eleven years old, in fifth grade, and has some mental and physical disabilities. She’s the tallest girl in her class. Also, the dress code states her skirt must be down to her fingertips, not her knees.
When I get there, I insisted I see her instead of just dropping her stuff off. I was not suprised to find her with a skirt obviously within the rules of the dress code. I asked her what class she was missing and she told me math. She’d been sitting out for atleast twenty or thirty minutes while she waited for me to come.
She only learns things at about a third of the pace as everyone else in her class. Even missing this short amount of time means missing a lot of information for her. Just to recap: she has to sit out of class because of the length of her skirt. She can’t even just sit in her classroom while she waits for me, because apparently that’s too distracting. To whom, you ask? I can’t really tell you. Are ten year old boys, fifth grade boys already old enough to be sexualizing her to the point that they were going so insane with horniness that they had to whisk her away until she could put on something ‘decent’.
So not only are the sexualizing a fifth grader, they are giving her different rules for the dress code based on her height and making her miss valuable class time. This bullshit needs to stop. Eleven goddamn years old and she’s already being taught her body isn’t her own anymore, that she’s being too provocative if she wears a skirt to the same standard as all the other short, skinny girls in her class just because she looks older.
As a P.S., I would like to point out that she is already bullied because of her disabilities. Pulling her out of class and making her change is even more of an embarrassment, and only leads to more teasing.
Signal boost, my niece went through the same thing.
this shit makes me so pissed off.
fuck every school that does this bullshit.
