Nothing Bad Can Happen
You bet your ass she did.
Holy crap. Eleanor LOVES it!
A better photo and proper thank-you forthcoming, but, criminy, this is so the nicest thing ever.
Charlize Theron’s reaction to Seth Macfarlane & “We Saw Your Boobs”
yikes.. was this genuine disgust? I didn’t watch this part but I keep hearing about it. Even the woman in the very back is shaking her head.
To summarize, Seth Macfarlane made a joke about offending all the actresses with a sexist song and then proceeded to sing said sexist song anyway. I just can’t wait until his bad jokes come true and he does get called the worst host.
but look at the reactions of the two people behind her tho
the woman is just stunned
and the man is like “why would you go there”
oh hi dar :)

I think back to this particular strip on an alarmingly regular basis.
I want to talk about this specifically.
Because we often forget that who decides what information is useful vs. useless is in fact a power structure. What’s actually more relevant to the life of your actual average 7-year-old: historical data about two particular dead white dudes who are singled out as face-men for manifest destiny (usually, at this age, neatly disregarding genocide and the impacts of colonialism) or fandom information that will give him cultural capital in his peer group thus allowing him to more readily engage others socially - a life skill that will have HUGE impact throughout his life?
This comic demonstrates the bullshit of ‘teaching to the test’ and mistaking knowledge for intelligence.
Never mind that an average seven-year-old generally cannot grok what Lewis and Clark did; that kind of incredibly complicated and painful history really ought to be saved for older kids who are capable of more abstract thinking (Like 10-12 maybe? About when US schools start teaching about WWII and the Holocaust?) Sure, they can memorize facts and parrot them back, but anything you teach them about history is going to necessarily be simplified and most usually sanitized beyond truthfulness because OMG CHILDHOOD INNOCENCE! (Just look what happens when one seven-year-old who does grok how awful history was tries to tell the others)
A seven-year-old’s time would be better utilized learning a few auxiliary languages because the juvenile plasticity of the mind makes them especially susceptible to them. Also music and mathematics.
This has been a rant about (some of) what is horribly wrong with the US education system.
& in many other country’s education system too.
Yesterday, I was on Ilum doing dailies with my sith sorcerer Banshila, when I noticed a few comments in general chat about a raid. Banshila has battlemaster gear, so I asked in chat if a group was forming - I got invited. Headed over, and a huge group was storming the Republic base! It was awesome, I’ve never seen anything like it. There were 2 large raid groups going, and we took control of the Republic base for quite some time. For a PVE server (Harbinger), I’ve never seen large open-world pvp like that before.
“This is the conceptual Dildomaker from designer Francesco Morackini. It’s like a giant pencil sharpener except it shapes things into peens. Definitely not the kind of thing you’re gonna want to carry around in a purse.”
Well that’s one way to get more fruits and vegetables into you (I find this terrifying and I’m using humour as a defence mechanism, like peeing on things or making myself big and fluffy).
