Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2)
Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace
IT OCCURRED TO ME ONCE WHILE WATCHING THIS EPISODE
DIPPER IS TWELVE??????
WHAT GRADE IS THIS KID IN??????????¿¿¿???
I’M A SOPHOMORE IN ALGEBRA II AND I STILL DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT WEIRD POINTY E MEANS
The pointy E. Haha.
Hey may be in advanced classes.
when i was in 2-3 grade, there was this boy who was already doing College level math
So….Dipper’s a math genius?
…Tell me more.
I think both twins are geniuses, but in different ways.
Dipper is a Math and Physics genius. He can think critically and come up with ideas beyond his years. He knows how to decode clues and solve puzzles extrenely quickly. (He’s basically like Dib from Invader Zim, a child genius who is interested in the supernatural)
Mabel is an art genius. She freakin sculpted a life sized statue that looked exactly like Stan in less than 24 hours. She knits ever single one of her sweaters, which is very impressive considering how many she seems to have as she changes her sweater at least once per episode, and made an entire puppet show from scratch.
i don’t know if you guys have read the naruto pilot yet, but if you haven’t, you don’t know what you’re missing out on
it’s basically a detective story with murder and colts and furries and underage drinking and naruto is a demon with a scooter
we joke about procrastination but nothing is worse than the nauseating feeling of having every intention of doing something but physically not being capable of doing it and then feeling like you want to throw up because the deadline is just getting closer and closer.
Well this sucks.
okay, but imagine this: human nepeta with a cleft lip and human equius with partial dentures. forgive the ugly gray lines around the edges, i had to use the snip tool bc sai wont let me save anything.
so is this a joke or what
you can put this device on any surface and it will actually type. like. this is a hologram. a HOLOGRAM. I CAN TYPE WITH A HOLOGRAM NOW.
its sold by Brookstone and fucking damn it is the most fascinating thing i have seen in my life so far holy god
Wait wait wait is this like a you hook it up to a computer and type on the light and then words?
yup. simple bluetooth hookup and boom. you’re done. you can now type on your desk with a hologram to send texts, make notes, do literally anything a keyboard can do.
Woah. Woah. WOAH
It’s sold by ThinkGeek too! But it is quite expensive
*sets entire english language on fire*
So this is actually a half-cool half-frustrating phenomenon called a cran morpheme.
Cran morphemes are morphemes that don’t have a meaning outside of the thing they designate. The ur-example, of course, is cranberry. Unlike blueberry (blue + berry), where the first morpheme is somewhat descriptive of the actual berry itself (blueberries are, after all, blueish), the cran- in cranberry doesn’t give you any more help than “this designates the type of berry we call cranberries”. The snozz- of snozzberry is similar.
It is true that cran- comes eventually from “crane” and that cranberries might have been named that because cranes ate them or something, but appealing to this invokes the etymological fallacy. That is, no one who uses or learns the word today thinks of cranes when they talk about cranberries. (Etymologists, lexicographers, and linguists don’t count as native speakers, as usual.)
Even so, the etymology doesn’t help us here, because the word that the cuttle- of cuttlefish comes from just means “cuttlefish” anyway. It’s cuttles all the way down.
