Sharks get a bad rap for being dangerous predators that are constantly devouring humans, but there is a whole world of things out there that will kill before a shark does. Here are just a few of those things.
WHO THE FUCK GETS KILLED BY A FUCKING VENDING MACHINE
Blackfish - Trailer
Many of us have experienced the excitement and awe of watching 8,000 pound orcas, or “killer whales,” soar out of the water and fly through the air at sea parks, as if in perfect harmony with their trainers. Yet, in our contemporary lore this mighty black and white mammal is like a two-faced Janus—beloved as a majestic, friendly giant yet infamous for its capacity to kill viciously. Blackfish unravels the complexities of this dichotomy, employing the story of notorious performing whale Tilikum, who—unlike any orca in the wild—has taken the lives of several people while in captivity. So what exactly went wrong?
During a meeting January 20, 2009, the night of Barack Obama’s first inauguration, Representatives Eric Cantor of Virginia, Kevin McCarthy of California, Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Pete Sessions of Texas and Jeb Hensarling of Texas pledged to sabotage and…
While claiming to offer them hope of a better life, our corporatized universities are ruining the lives of our students. This is accomplished through a two-prong tactic: you dumb down and destroy the quality of the education so that no one on campus is really learning to think, to question, to reason. Instead, they are learning to obey, to withstand “tests” and “exams”, to follow rules, to endure absurdity and abuse.
The Second Prong: You make college so insanely unaffordable that only the wealthiest students from the wealthiest of families can afford to go to the school debt free.

And when students wonder why I tell them I work in the belly of the beast, this is what I tell them.
This teacher needs to be terminated immediately….at LEAST.
This bitch needs physical violence. LOTS OF IT.
but notice how they humanize the teacher by constantly calling her frustrated. Notice how they put her frustration on the same level as the violence enacted upon this little girl. Lets talk about how deeply an act of violence it is to cut off and throw away a little black girl’s hair to the laughter of the classroom. Or about how the teacher shows the little girl that her mother has no power and cant do anything to protect her by asking “What are you going to tell your mother?” And about how cutting her hair was just as much a message to her mother for sending her child to school with a hairstyle that she deems disruptive and frustrating. And how as a teacher, if you dont have constructive ways of discipline that dont involve terrorizing children then you are unfit for the job. but o she is frustrated and is receiving a small fine as opposed to being fired. Lets talk about what would happen if you terrorized and cut some white child’s hair in a school district with some means, whose parents have a higher property tax….
Somebody get this little girl a lawyer. In California I believe this would be assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and a bunch of other causes of action. smh
Interesting. What possible purpose could removing them have served?
It was a symbolic gesture toward big oil to let them know that the Republicans were on their side.
It was also a way for Ronald Reagan to thumb his nose at Jimmy Carter, the Democratic Party and everyone who supported alternative energy.
The Tawainese companyNext Media Animation, which skyrocketed to pop culture cult status with its infamous 2009Tiger Woods video, has turned its sights onDan Snyder’s NFL Washington Redskins.The resulting animated video, titled “Redskins name is racist against Native Americans and a disgrace to NFL,” is, well, something that must be seen to be believed. NMA madesome minor noise in Indian country last yearwith a Super Bowl preview cartoon, but the new anti-Redskins effort takes things to an entirely new level.
note: the guy the owner wished to “honor” and told to wear war paint and feathers wasn’t even actually native.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately: Throughout my undergraduate coursework and field experience, I have been “the other.” But, to a feminist teacher, what can “the other” be in a profession that dominated by women?
The “other” is obviously something unusual: A nonwhite…
