Ravens are pretty amazing.

Someone on imgur has uploaded a whole lot of fantastic images depicting the filming of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. There are 100 of them, and boy, do they provide a lot of fascinating detail about one of the most ambitious movie sets ever constructed—especially in terms of the available technology. It’s great to see how much of this is analog—I mean we know it had to be analog, but the contrast with today’s CGI way is stark. I especially love the stills where you can see the grandeur of the massive stage sets, how they solved the problem of filming, for example, a set in which the inside of a massive wheel is a continuous flat surface in a zero-gravity space vessel.

this game is bullshit, you have to go through a tutorial until level 18, and your stats start to go down after level 30 not to mention the romance mini-game is hard as fuck

sadly the PVP is a lie. You get a debuff called jail

it also fails to mention that once you hit level 18 it actually does have a monthly fee and it’s really fucking steep. but at that point everyone’s too invested to quit playing so ugh yeah

I don’t even get to choose anything about the initial details of my character.
>_>

Pff the graphics really suck, I needed to get a third party program just to make everything focus.

If the character they give you isn’t the right gender, the patch is expensive as hell and takes forever to install

I thought I was really good at this game, but there are millions of people better at it than I am. ::::/

I died ONCE and they closed my fucking account what the hell

All the travel takes for fucking ever too. They desperately need to patch in some sort of teleport system.

Don’t even get me started on how boring the endgame is. 

everyone in the game keeps arguing over whether or not there’s an admin or not and its really annoying

Ye man haha ‘massive world to explore’
PLOT FUCKIN TWIST that only applies with the travel expansion pack which is fuckin expensive not to mention you have to buy a different one for each location.
Also multiplayer interaction only work well if your specs fit with theirs
absolutely useless

The music’s not bad, though… Sometimes it takes a while to find the right area to listen, and often you have to deal with ambient music that sucks so hard you want to /quit, but once you find some you like, you’re allowed to keep it on a playlist, and have access to it from most terminals.

Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F

I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?

You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.

Average American Grading Scale:
A+- 97-100
A - 94-96
A- - 90-93
B- 80-89
C- 70-79
D- 60-69
F- 59 and under

oh wow that is fucked up

why do they skip E in america

There’s an E in other grading scales?

And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be
A - 100-93
B - 92-85
C - 84-78
D - 77-70
F - 69 and below

Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier? 

No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?

UK Grading Scale

100-70: A

69-60: B

59-50: C

49-40: D

Below 40: F

ARE YOU FUCKING WITH ME?! THATS INSANE!!!!

next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid

i’m gonna remind you

that our “average” is your “A”

Reblogged for the commentary

I’m moving to the UK

"The disastrous 2010 Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United threw out campaign funding laws that limited what wealthy individuals and corporations could spend on elections. Since that ruling, campaign spending by Adelson, the Koch brothers and a handful of other billionaire families has fundamentally undermined American democracy. If present trends continue, elections will not be decided by one-person, one-vote, but by a small number of very wealthy families who spend huge amounts of money supporting right-wing candidates who protect their interests.
 
This process — a handful of the wealthiest people in our country controlling the political process — is called “oligarchy.”
 
The great political struggle we now face is whether the United States retains its democratic heritage or whether we move toward an oligarchic form of society where the real political power rests with a handful of billionaires, not ordinary Americans."

"Hobby Lobby doesn’t want to cover its employees’ birth control on company insurance plans. In fact, they’re so outraged about women having access to birth control that they’ve taken the issue all the way to the Supreme Court.
 
I cannot believe that we live in a world where we would even consider letting some big corporation deny the women who work for it access to the basic medical tests, treatments or prescriptions that they need based on vague moral objections.
 
But here’s the scary thing: With the judges we’ve got on the Supreme Court, Hobby Lobby might actually win."

"Three well-respected legal scholars examined almost 20,000 Supreme Court cases from the last 65 years. They found that the five conservative justices currently sitting on the Supreme Court are in the top 10 most pro-corporate justices in more than half a century."

Elizabeth Warren, everyone. I can’t wait for someone who is as awesome as Senator Warren to run here in California, so we can get rid of the reprehensible corporatist Dianne Feinstein.
