Update, 4:30 p.m.: The ACLU, responding to BuzzFeed's Chris Geidner on Twitter, says that the officer involved in the incident described above has been removed from duty following a public ACLU complaint.
this is great and all but lets observe the fact that the moment a WHITE journalist is threatened, action is taken…while Michael Brown’s murderer still walks freely and the police officers threatening the lives of black people/hitting them with tear gas and rubber bullets are still on the clock
i have never read anything more blatantly written by a man before
one of john green’s lesser-known works
I love this man.
If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.
Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.

EVERYONE PLEASE AT LEAST TAKE A QUICK SECOND TO LOOK AT THIS
BECAUSE IT IS EFFECTING THE EXACT AREA I LIVE IN
Lots of people believe bottled water is safer and cleaner than tap water, when in reality there’s no evidence proving such a thing.
Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!: Bottled Water segment, gives a very good and thorough summary of the bottled water culture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHx6BX3HZJc
You want better water? Buy a Zero filter. SRSLY. Stop buying bottled if possible. You need water with you? Get reusable acrylic or glass water bottles (wrapped in a silicon sleeve) and fill it up from your filter pitcher. SAVE MONEY, SAVE MY STATE
Awesome, more reasons for me to hate on bottled water.
my brother blocked me on twitter and i’m really upset because his tweets are pure gold
Pine Lawn Police were involved in a pursuit after a vehicle fled from state troopers in the Ferguson area Friday morning.
Four White guys with multiple weapons were taken into custody. Not shot and kill and left out on the road. They were arrested and given due process. They’re names aren’t leaked. We’re not seeing invasions into their facebooks for impeding trials. We’re not even seeing mug shots. We don’t know if they’re anarchist, klan or anything at all. We just know they left the scene of a armed chase alive.
This is the difference and the outrage.
they always show us the truth with their actions
HM AND THEYRE STILL ALIVE TO TELL THE TALE. Interesting.
Let’s just reiterate: “Four White guys with multiple weapons were taken into custody. Not shot and kill and left out on the road. They were arrested and given due process.”
Four white guys
With multiple weapons
Taken into custody
Given due process
the difference between how black and white lives are regarded.
Parenting tip: talk to your kids about mental illness. Tell them they might have a hard time. Tell them they can ask for therapy and medication. Tell them they aren’t alone. Tell them if your family has a history of mental illnesses and which ones. Just fucking talk to your kids and be there for them.
Tell them you’ll take them to a specialist if they feel they need it, and tell them they can stop seeing that specialist at any time, for any reason.
This would have changed the world for me, instead of my parents talking about therapy like a threat and a consequence of being defective.

This better have hundreds of thousands of notes at the end of the day or else
I don’t understand why these random ex-marines are praised for coming out and saying “we didn’t even use these types of police weaponry and tactics in Fallujah! The ferguson pd is Outrageous !”
As if there was a shred of morality or humanity in their deadly military occupation? Why compare the two..seems lazy 2 me
