Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.

And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.

It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?

Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?

So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.

This is like at least 25% of tumblr.

25%? I’d say 70%.

88%?

I love how there’s one thats just a homestuck, like the others are all common people you might see at school then there’s just a homestuck. Like you just go outside like ‘the damn homestucks are out there again.’

when I was like 9 my neighbors asked me to watch their fish and cat while they went on vacation and I was like “lol k” and while they were gone tHE FUCKING FISH DIED so when they got home I apologized to the mom and she was just like “no need to apologize, I turned the filter off so they would die because they are too much work. You did nothing wrong” and she gave me 20 bucks and that is the story of my first contracted murder

Or, y’know, that thing called “Passover.”

Or the whole thing with Noah’s Ark where he killed off everything in the world except Noah and his family, and two of every animal. Y’know, no big deal. Just millions of people.

90% of the Old Testament is about God killing people in temper tantrums

Are we not going to mention Jesus?

Nailed it.

*wheeze* 

Oh my god.

Nailed it.

Did you know you can tell different species of fireflies apart by their flash patterns?

Different species of fireflies will also eat one another! So while the males are flashing around searching for females down below, they have to be very careful to choose a lady with a similar pattern or they might end up as dinner [source]
Side note: anyone else following sciencefriday? Or listening to their segments on NPR? You should! Their podcasts are here and here if you prefer podbay

It may be mentioned in that study (I skimmed it :B), but females of some predatory species will actually mimic the flash patterns of other fireflies to lure their males in— so even being appropriately choosy may not save the prey males from becoming a delicious snack ;D

Yes! That’s actually the female photuris. We talk about it a bit towards the end of the video.

I was just explaining this to some neighborhood kids.

"If I perform this emergency abortion I’m a murderer!!!"

No, bro. You’re a murderer if you let your pregnant patient die in your office because you refused them an emergency abortion.

As a medical professional, let me say this: If you will not put your patient first—if you will not perform life saving medical care because of your own beliefs—stay the fuck out of the field.

We have enough abusive and ableist people in the field as it is.
