there is not one search term here that isn’t magical

i know ive reblogged this before at least twice but i decided to read through the entire thing this time and im in pain from how hard i am laughing please forgive me

If I ever stop reblogging this call EMS immediately.

I’m torn between “did a ghost do my taxes,” “are there fraggles in my body,” “who is solar system,” “cant see legs,” and is sarah palan made of crab meat.” Any one of them could be a Chip Zdarsky tweet.

Nope!
Brain studies find that concern for justice and equality is linked to logic, not emotion.
By Lisa Wade, PhD
A new study finds that people with high “justice sensitivity” are using logic, not emotions.  Subjects were put in a fMRI machine, one that measures ongoing brain activity and shown videos of people acting kindly or cruelly toward a homeless person.
Some respondents reacted more strongly than others — hence the high versus low justice sensitivity — and an analysis of the high sensitivity individuals’ brain activity showed that they were processing the images in the parts of the brain where logic and rationality live.   “Individuals who are sensitive to justice and fairness do not seem to be emotionally driven,” explained one of the scientists, “Rather, they are cognitively driven.”
Activists aren’t angry, they reasonably object to unjust circumstances that they understand all too well.

In need of something a little light today? Don’t worry. We all do. This Basement Jaxx video just might be what the doctor ordered.

Just what I needed this morning, amazing new Jaxx track.

  • Me: Urgh, twelve hour shift. Might as well listen to a podcast.
  • Me: Might give that Thrilling Adventure Hour thing a go, no idea what it's like, but they did a live show with the Night Vale lot, sooo....
  • Me: Heh. That Sparks Nevada theme's pretty catchy.
  • Me: Man. Most people can only dream of a relationship like Sadie and Frank's.
  • Me: I'M FROM EARTH
  • Me: WHO CARES WHAT EVIL LURKS IN THE HEARTS OF MAN
  • Me: ALSO I'LL HAVE MY 100 LASERS
  • Me: Oh fuck I've found a new thing to burble on about that no-one I know is interested in and I'll have that Sparks Nevada theme stuck in my head until the last recorded syllable of time
  • Me: Robot fists tho
