How Apple Is Invading Our Bodies

This is fucking hilarious to me because:

  1. Apple is far from the first to introduce wearable phone tech, and definitely far from the first to do so in the last year.
  2. Apple is playing fuckin’ catch-up at this point; they’re sitting at 11% market share compared to Android’s 85%.  The idea that the Apple Watch is going to be the thing that breaks through and makes wearable tech a cultural phenomenon before Android/Google does (bearing in mind that Android Wear is already a thing and has been for months) is laughable.
  3. Breathless and sensational technophobia.

I’m such a #dude that I will absolutely leave my asshole caked in shit UNLESS I can use a #dudewipe to clean it off with 

"slam piece"

why are euphemisms for penis so painful sounding 

Because our culture links violence and maleness.

When I look back on my time in therapy, I wonder if I could’ve done a better job of making it work for me. Maybe I should’ve offered up specific changes that I wanted to see to the therapists, such as “I want to stop crying several times a week” or “I need to learn to be okay with being single.” (Both of these things happened without the help of a therapist, by the way.) But…I didn’t really know that I needed to do that. I saw my therapists as authority figures. I assumed they knew what they were doing, and that they would ask me for specific things if they needed to. I had only the vaguest ideas of how therapy is “supposed” to work, because my psychology classes mainly focused on theories and not on practice.

If you find yourself doing nothing but venting about your problems in therapy–without necessarily then developing any sort of plan to help resolve or cope with the problems–that’s a red flag. Venting can be therapeutic in its own right, but you shouldn’t have to pay for the opportunity to do it. Therapists have a responsibility to provide the best treatment they can; it’s literally in our code of ethics. You deserve that from your therapist.

An estimated 63 percent of young men between the ages of 11 and 20 who are imprisoned for homicide have killed their mothers’ batterers.

Can’t find any research supporting this statistic.

Oh, by the way, Cowboys & Aliens is one of the most ridiculous movies.  I’m not sure why it exists or how it got past pre-production.

disappointing that there was never an episode of TNG where Q and Picard have to raise a pretend baby together

I just saw this episode a couple of days ago on Netflix.
Avi have you been watching over my shoulder?

Wee The People

You can find Wee the People drawings with this tag now.  They’re going to be on fun things to own when the store is updated.  I am glad you like them!  I certainly am enjoying drawing them.
