Quote reblogged from swan queen with 3,799 notes

What was a policeman, if not a civilian with a uniform and a badge? But they tended to use the term [civilian] these days as a way of describing people who were not policemen. It was a dangerous habit: once policemen stopped being civilians, the only other thing they could be was soldiers.

"Snuff" by Terry Pratchett (via knerdy)

This is way too relevant.

"Vancouver School Board Introduces Gender-Neutral Pronouns"

"Students and teachers in Vancouver can now use the gender-neutral pronouns "xe," "xem," and "xyr." The move is designed to accommodate students for whom "he" and "she" does not fit or is deemed inappropriate…
"The newly coined pronouns — xe, xem, and xyr — are pronounced to rhyme with the genderless plurals "they," "them," and "their," and all starting with the "z" sound. So phonetically speaking, they’re pronounced "zey, "zem", and "zare.""

the article doesn’t do the issue justice.
the issue regarded policy change, where the vancouver school board’s (VSB) LGBTQ+ advisory committee re-wrote existing policy to protect staff and students falling on the queer and trans spectrums. 
the policy revision includes
-they/them/their and non-traditional pronouns being recognized by the school system
-required used of preferred names and pronouns by all staff and students
-preferred names/pronouns on all school records
-gender-accesible washrooms and change rooms available to those who require them
-disciplinary action taken against those who act in a discriminatory or hateful manner towards students, staff, and families falling on the queer and trans spectrums
—————-
the consultation was the longest ever done by the VSB, with over 120 speakers spread across 3 meetings. 
the process also resulting in two school board trustees being ejected form their party’s caucus, due their discriminatory actions and arguments.

Deadpool vs Comic-Con 2014 - Video

I hope that spiderman was daniel radcliffe

Me too.

FFFFFFFFFucking hate Deadpool cosplayers. They think because they can put on a shit suit they can run around and act like an asstit.

Like 3% of Deadpool cosplayers have a viable personality under the suit

you do know this is D-Piddy right? he asks for consent before he does anything or even records anyone. He’s rlly funny while still being super chill and polite to the cosplayers and i wish more Deadpool cosplayers were like him

Question reblogged from something questionable with 4,933 notes

Anonymous said: I worked my way through college when I was a kid in the 70s I only made minimum wage and I made it I don't know why you kids complain so much about how hard it is to pay for schooling.

shitrichcollegekidssay:

shitrichcollegekidssay:

Okay lets work through this ask, because I’m not sure when in school you were in school I’m using 1970 in the USA I’m using 2013 for inflation comparison bullshit.

Minimum today in 2014 on average is: $7.25 an hour

Minimum wage on average in the 70s was between: $1.60 and $2.90

Lets convert this amount for what it would be worth today: 

In 1970: $1.60 an hour would be about $7.70 today, welp that’s already more than our minimum wage so..

in 1979: $2.90 an hour would be about $9.16 well holy shit that’s way above our national average. 

Average cost of university today in 2014According to the College Board, the average cost of tuition and fees for the 2013–2014 school year [ONE FUCKING SCHOOL YEAR] was $30,094 at private colleges, $8,893 for state residents at public colleges, and $22,203 for out-of-state residents attending public universities. 


So a four year degree would costs at a public university:
in-state: $35,572 Out of State: $88,812

Average costs of a public university 4 year degree in 19704,828 which when converted for today would be about $28,580.66 [compare to 35,572, with our smaller minimum wage]

I’m not even fuckin with 1979, cause if you do your own research you find the same fucking information university was cheaper in the 70s across the board compared today, and minimum wage was higher.

conclusion?

It is literally impossible to work your way through university today

if ur gonna be a dickhead and argue with me go through the facts first jfc.

BECAUSE I APPARENTLY NEED TO FUCKING SPECIFY AGAIN FOR CERTAIN LITTLE SHITS, THIS ENTIRE THING USES ONLY NATIONAL AVERAGES BECAUSE THATS HOW YOU COMPARE SHIT. GOD FUCKING DAMMIT.
