Jensen: We say to each other, “maybe we’re not curing cancer but we might be helping someone who has it.”

I love this because sometimes people don’t understand why I love a sci fi show so much but they just don’t get that watching the show, being involved with the fandom and being a fan of the cast is a distraction from the difficult and depressing times and thoughts in my life. That facing Sam and Dean’s problems with them, it makes me forget about the problems I have.

The only person you can legally hit in the United States is a child.

Hit your partner, and you’ll be arrested for domestic violence. Hit another adult, and you’ll be arrested for assault. But hit a 4-year-old, and you can call yourself a “loving father.” That’s completely screwed up.

It should be against the law for a fully grown adult to slap, hit, spank, punch, switch, whoop, whip, paddle, kick or belt a defenseless child in the name of discipline. But it is legal, and new research in the Journal of Family Psychology suggests that the average 4-year-old is hit 936 times a year.

If study after study conclusively proves that hitting your kids doesn’t work as a disciplinary method, and worse, it has long-term damaging impact to their psychology and makes your kids more aggressive, why do we as a society allow it?

Watch: “It’s on us” urges the White House in powerful rape prevention video

If a man is preying on a woman who has had too much to drink, it is her responsibility to stop him and her fault if she can’t? No, it’s on us.

That is the message President Obama and Joe Biden are sending today with the launch of their new sexual assault prevention campaign “It’s On Us.”

Another species to be added to the ever-growing tick-list:

Africa’s Western Black Rhino has been officially declared EXTINCT. Poaching and lack of conservation have led the subspecies of black rhino to extermination, while the Northern White Rhino is ‘teetering on the brink of extinction’.

    Way to go, humanity.

what’s sad is hardly anyone fucking cares or wants to hear about it let alone talk about it

Not gonna lie, the main reason I watch mythbusters is that it reminds me of what it was like to do crazy things with fellow students at Caltech.

You went to Caltech???

Yep. ’08. Biology & History double…

I feel like “the sex trailer” requires some explanation…so there was this one time that we all lived in modular trailers (well, those of us in the “South Houses”) while those houses were being renovated.  The rooms were mostly triples and doubles, the bathrooms were coed and central to the trailers, and there was, at first, only Internet in there.  The bathrooms I mean.

So since everyone was crammed into small quarters, someone joked that no one would ever be able to have sex (but like, this is Caltech, so the risk of that happening anyway was lower than normal)…except in the shared lounge trailers, which no one ever went into as they didn’t have Internet.

And from then on the nickname “the sex trailer” caught on and never really went away—with none of us really realizing anymore that for people who don’t know the context, this phrase raises eyebrows.  At least.

That explains so much.

Y’all moved into the trailers right after I graduated and moved away so this whole etymological development skipped me entirely. When people mentioned “the sex trailer” I assumed it was a Dabney thing and didn’t think to question any further.

"A Dabney thing"…yeah, I can see how you might think that.

Yes, it didn’t strike me as odd that Dabney might reserve a trailer for spontaneous orgies.
