“What pisses me off the most about the term “special needs” isn’t that it’s cutesy or euphemistic, but the presumption that my needs are special when abled people’s needs are just how they are. If I need transcripts for audio homework assignments, suddenly that’s special, but if an abled student requests transcripts for audio materials, that’s just another student request. Why are my needs special and not yours? “special needs” is part of ablenormativity.”

So the Denisovans (a sub species of Homo Sapiens, whose skull image is shown above), genome was analyzed.

The new Denisovan genome indicates this population interbred with an extinct archaic sub-human population that lived in Asia more than 30,000 years ago, which is neither human nor Neanderthal.

They have yet to identify what this unknown species maybe.

"Damn," Dean says. "Well, okay, if you seriously can’t wait until we get back to my room…" Castiel can hear him smiling. Castiel smiles as well but he hides it in the folds of his trousers as he works them onto the hanger, then the line.

"Do you ever think about anything else?" he chastises. It’s only for show. Really, he knows that Dean does, especially these days. Dean’s got much more on his mind than sex and honestly, Castiel sometimes has a hard time understanding what it is about himself that Dean finds so attractive.

He’s trapped in a body that isn’t his, or wasn’t his, at first. It belonged to someone who took decent enough care of it, ate well and exercised and clipped his nails and cut his hair, but for Castiel, this body has only ever been utilitarian. Until Dean, that is.  

This was my gift in the exchange.  It’s a lovely dive into Castiel’s thoughts about his body with reference to e. e. cumming’s i like my body.  Go give this author some love—it’s well-deserved.

Joan Jett rumbled from the Impala’s speakers, and as the closing chords of The French Song faded away, Dean lowered the volume to a faint murmur.

“Why are we doing this again?”

NYPD twitter campaign implodes, flooded with photos of police abuse

Just before 2 pm EDT, the New York City Police Department called via Twitter for photos of citizens with its officers. Almost immediately the campaign #myNYPD seemed to backfire, as users flooded the hashtag with photos decrying alleged police brutality.

Astrophotography from 1908 — 1919

These images were taken about 100 years ago. I can’t even describe how much respect I have for early astronomers.

REALLY just wanna take this chance to remind the people who follow me to not kill/trap opossums if they’re in your yard, and do not call animal control! Seriously.

  1. Opossums are literally 100% BIOLOGICALLY INCAPABLE of carrying rabies. Their body temperature is too cool to incubate it properly.
  2. Opossums are actually quite gentle and NOCTURNAL, so if they’re roaming, they’ve probably gotten lost, been injured, and are looking for a place to hide.
  3. Young opossums tend to try to climb into garbage cans when they’re starving. This is because THEY ARE LITERALLY STARVING. Don’t fucking shoot them or hit them with things because you wanna be some fucking macho top-of-the-food-chain cocksucker.
  4. Mama possums are amazing mothers and if you encounter an “aggressive” opossum, it’s probably because she’s got babies hanging off her nipple and she’s freaking out. They’re clumsy. Sometimes they don’t hear you coming and  you catch each other off guard.
  5. Wanna lure an opossum off of your property? You can set up a box with some greens and cat kibble in it, hide it well, and lure them out that way. They’re actually quite harmless and keep other predators away. they eat lotsa gross stuff.
  6. Opossum mamas who get hit by cars often still have their helpless babies attached to them. Possums get a bad rep and people say they are “the dumbest animal”, but they are incredible creatures who have been around since the days of fucking dinosaurs so treat them well, okay?
