why does it seem that it is snowing in every region in the country
except for the region that needs it most, the rocky mountain west. we actually use that snow to ski on around here! have you seen our mountains lately? no snow. skiing sucks this season! so stop hogging it all Southwest and East! you guys just shut yourselves in or take pretty pictures of snow or complain about how it’s hard to drive in. we actually thrive on it and use it for recreational purposes! we don’t know what to do with ourselves in the winter without snow. so i’ll be expecting a large shipment of your unused snow in a few days then. thank you!
I am so, so, so, so tired of pictures of extremely thin, topless women crossing my dashboard. Kids, I’m totally okay with the occasional well-done nude photo. I can appreciate the naked human form. BUT. 90% of the stuff that I’ve seen here is the bargain basement variety of pseudo-artistic, I-meant-the-quality-to-be-horrific-(but-really-I-just-don’t-know-how-to-use-my-camera-and-can’t-be-bothered-to-learn) hipster “photography” that makes me feel like I’ve suddenly signed up to follow a hundred or so pro-ana sites run by girls with an aversion to good hygiene and bad taste in music.
I know that starving-and-topless is the new posing-in-underwear-in-a-trashed-apartment, but can you please, please, please find a way of expressing how much cooler you are than everyone else that doesn’t involve perpetuating this very done trend? I’m all ribs-and-nipples’d out.
i know that everyone was already riding the pioneer woman train but i just bought the book for my mom for christmas and guys? she’s obsessed. i dont think a day has gone by where that book isnt on the counter open to a pretty glossy photo of some delicious meal or some prairie landscape or some denim encased cowboy ass.
my mom made penne ala betsy tonight and seriously bros? i could eat this shit for the rest of my life and turn into a huge human 800lb penne noodle person and be totally ok with that. i could live in a penne house with tomato and shrimp furnishings and basil carpets and a pool full of heavy cream in the backyard.
i feel like this is an ok plan for the future right?
oh god i LOVE the pioneer woman. i make these crash hot potatoes ALL THE TIME. but i still have been unsuccessful at being able to smash my potatoes as well as she does. but i like that she gives me step by step pictures cause i’m totally retarded when it comes to cooking. really, like ree tahr dud.
“The prospect of meeting someone you want to get in bed with at night is what makes you get out of bed in the morning.”—Dave and Marisa. Feel free to embroider on pillows or frost on a sheet cake. (via dealbreaker)
that under canon law in medieval europe, if a man had promised to marry another woman before his marriage to his present wife, the present marriage is invalid and any children borne out of that marriage are technically illegitimate.
welp boys, don’t go throwing around any promises, it just may come back to bite you in the rear!
TIM TAM SLAMS. just sayin'.
YESSS TIM TAM SLAMS!
so my sister taught me how to do these when i visited her while she was studying in sydney last winter. suffice it to say, i was terrible at them and made a ginormous mess all over and my hot tea just became a gooey chocolatey mess.
so this spring while i was studying in london my parents sent me some of the remaining tim tams that my sister and i had brought back from australia with us. and i got to teach andrew and my roomies how to do tim tam slams!
oh btw andrew became a tim tam addict and i think ate about 80% of them.
The Citizens United case is the Roe v. Wade of the 21st century, only the roles are reversed. Conservatives who bashed liberal judges for “legislating from the bench” and disrespecting precedent are now exposed as unprincipled poseurs. Liberals who grew up depending on courts to protect the public interest must now build a mass movement to confront the greatest accumulation of corporate power since the age of the robber barons.
At his confirmation hearings, John Roberts said, “Judges are like umpires. Umpires don’t make the rules; they apply them.” He repeated his belief in judicial restraint and the importance of precedent. So what did his court do? It gutted more than a century of law that barred direct corporate expenditures on behalf of politicians. And it slam-dunked GOP stalwarts like Teddy Roosevelt, Robert Taft (his 1947 Taft-Hartley Act limited outside campaign expenditures), and, yes, John McCain. The key to the 5–4 majority finding that corporations have all the rights of people: Samuel Alito, the hardliner who replaced Sandra Day O’Connor.
