“A winter in Saint Petersburg" Vogue Italy July 2006
Fun little trick I learned in therapy: validation. When someone is upset, don’t try to fix the problem, point out the cause, or tell them it could be worse. Just validate their emotions. Be like, ‘shit yeah man, that sucks. I’m sorry you’re going through that. I’m here for you.’ That’s literally all you have to do to make them feel better. Thank you and goodnight.
When I was a kid I thought your 20s were supposed to be fun, not filled with perpetual anxiety about financial stability and constantly feeling like an unaccomplished piece of shit.
That’s because it was fun for baby boomers and they basically gave us this impression it would always be like that, but then they ruined the economy.
white people back at it again
they all look exactly as you would expect them to
Soooooo…. Where’s the riot police to stop them……..
These people are on the absolutely WRONG side of this tragedy. The need to STFU and go home.
I understand that everybody has the right to their own opinion, I get that. But there is a point when you take into consideration the logic of this situation and couple it with the rhetoric these people are using to promote their side of the argument… and it’s all based on hate and fear.
"We need police to protect us from thugs who want to mug us."
Bitch I’m white white and I spent 30 minutes lost in Compton and got 3 compliments. Let me say that again. As the only white person on that street, for every 10 minutes I spent in the middle of Compton I received 1 compliment. You are simply using your subconscious disgust and lack of understanding with the African-American culture to justify the killing of ANOTHER unarmed black male, simply on the grounds that you feel your life is in danger. Your conscious is corrupt and you are no better than Zimmerman.
"But not ALL police are like that!"
While the events in Ferguson are not happening everywhere, I assure you, every police officer in the country abides by the same philosophy and (again) lack of conscious that fuels the first statement. They use the notion of violence against an officer to justify tactics that shit all over our constitutional rights, and have stockpiled military-grade surplus equipment under the guise of “an updated police force” when really they have absolutely no restraint in when and how and under what circumstances they are allowed to use these things. If there were such thing as a good cop anymore, they are young impressionable rookies who will either A) Quit the police force to adhere to their morals or B) become absorbed into the police machine and defend their fellow officers in times of social distress like this, stripping themselves of any previously held morals in order to do so. ANY time a police officer opens his mouth to you he is holding you hostage, because at any point if that officer feels like it he/she can beat you, mace you, taze you, strangle you, shoot you, or any of the above combination of things without the slightest bit of accountability. The cops are NOT your friends, kids.
Sorry I’ll stop ranting.
Coldest Star Found—No Hotter Than Fresh Coffee
According to a new study, a star discovered 75 light-years away is no warmer than a freshly brewed cup of coffee.
Dubbed CFBDSIR 1458 10b, the star is what’s called a brown dwarf. These oddball objects are often called failed stars, because they have starlike heat and chemical properties but don’t have enough mass for the crush of gravity to ignite nuclear fusion at their cores.
With surface temperatures hovering around 206 degrees F (97 degrees C), the newfound star is the coldest brown dwarf seen to date.
I’m gonna…I’m gonna touch it..
