COLLEGE FIRST.

I love how the Addams Family has ZERO slut-shaming. Like… honey you can dance naked and enslave someone with your womanly charms if you want to, I don’t fucking care, but so help me you’re going to get a college education first.

A+ PARENTING

The Addamses are what every family should aspire to be like (you know; without the dismemberment and electric chairs as play time).  Honestly, have you ever seen more unconditionally loving and supportive parents than Gomez and Morticia?  And not just with the kids, but with each other.  I think what’s especially unique about them is how open they are with everything.  They don’t treat their children like children.  They treat them like they treat everyone else; direct, and to the point. 

I HAVE to reblog this…

It’s creepy how many good examples of parenting and romantic relationships there is in these characters, especially considering they are supposed to be the antithesis of the stereotypical American nuclear family.

In 1933, a girl dressed all in blue came to Willoughby, Ohio on a Greyhound bus. She stayed the night in a boarding house before spending the next day greeting everyone with heartfelt warmth. At the end of the day, she saw the train to New York approach, dropped her cases, sprinted for the track, was hit by the train and died of her injuries. No one knew her name for 60 years, yet 3,000 people attended her funeral. And no one will ever know if it was an accident or suicide.

ihopethisisgood-bye asked: Can you explain why there are pro-Russia protests in the Ukraine? What's the difference between pro-Russia and pro-Ukraine government protesters?

tomippen:

I am certainly not the one to be asking about this stuff, but as I understand it there’s a large bloc in the Ukraine that wants closer economic ties with the European Union, and these are the folks who’ve been protesting in Kiev over the last little while, due to the fact that the now-ousted president was spurning closer European ties for renewed closeness with Russia.

Since the pro-Russian bloc under the deposed Yanukovych is no longer in power, this has left those Ukrainians in the eastern areas of the country (who feel a familial and linguistic bond with their Russian neighbours) feeling alienated, and they’re calling for Russian intervention.

These countries have a long and often horrifying history, with big brother Russia/USSR often dominating the Ukraine by force. What we have now is Russia claiming its “threatened interests” in the Crimea as a cassus belli for what looks more and more like a full invasion. 

One man’s opinion: Putin’s a tool.

Few laymen know or even care to know the principles that guide science; we accept the results on faith, and like the peasant we simply defer to the accredited experts of the tradition. Yet we scientists work under the constraints of our illusions. We assume that somehow we shall be able to divide the universe into enough infinitesimally small pieces, that somehow even according to our own rules we shall be able to comprehend these, and critically we assume that these particles, though extracted from the whole, will render meaningful conclusions about the totality. Perhaps most dangerously, we assume that in doing this, in making this choice, we sacrifice nothing. But we do. I can no longer see Venus [in daylight.]
