Utopia rant against children - “His birth was a selfish act.”

Sitting here pretty intoxicated and a cat comes in - mate mumbles “I’d leave my husband if he doesn’t like cats…”

He doesn’t have a husband.

Did Darwin die a Muslim?

The striking conclusion Dr. Hassan reaches is that Darwin himself evolved to become Muslim without knowing about this process (Naturalist- Evolutionist- Muslim). I quote Dr. Hassan from ‘Shajara Code Decoded’: “This is enough to suggest that Darwin, who was not known to discuss theological matters since he renounced Christianity, was a Muslim; just unaware that the word Islam, in its basic meaning, refers to a state of mind, an instinctive humble submission to the supreme creator, not a club that requires membership or permission to join or leave!”

Stelarc’s Third Ear

"Stelarc is a legendary Australian performance artist who has, for over four decades, used his body as his art medium, using everything from robotic third arms to full body hook suspensions. His Ear on Arm project began in 2006 by using a skin expander to create excess skin on his left forearm. A biocompatible scaffold was then surgically inserted into his left forearm and the skin suctioned around it to create the shape of the ear."

The COMPLETE definitive Catwoman origin.

James Foley murder video: watch it and you risk terror charges

The Met’s Counter Terrorism Command has announced it is investigating the video of the beheading of US journalist James Foley which is narrated by someone with a British accent.

And in the same statement has also warned of anyone found viewing, downloading or disseminating that video risks prosecution for a terrorist offence.

That means the video is now being treated by the authorities as a terrorist publication and so carries with it the same potential as, for example, an issue of thejihadist ‘Inspire’ magazine, which has led in the past to many convictions.

It is part of the UK’s attempts to nullify the video’s recruitment potential as it spreads exponentially across the world.

There are now some 500 British jihadists out in Syria and Iraq – 250 are believed to be from London alone.

That number has remained roughly the same over the past year, but security sources are working on the basis that the recent Islamic State announcement of setting up a Caliphate will provoke another surge of recruits.

Honest Brand Slogans By Clif Dickens

Branding is all about good company image and great customer feedback. However, even the biggest brands have some qualities, which do not exactly enhance their brand’s value. That’s why Clif Dickens thought of a unique way how to make fun of global brands, replacing their original slogans with something a little bit more honest.

The brilliancy of his work is in its simplicity: by putting things that people already know about these brands next to their logos, they seem even more true. Nonetheless, the brands remain at the top and we get a good laugh at them, a win-win situation for everyone!

Debunking Four Myths About Polyamory

Bisexual people try polyamory because it’s not fulfilling to only date a person of one gender.

Some do, yes. But this also ties into an unfortunate, harmful, and inaccurate myth about bisexual people: that they will inevitably cheat on you because they “need” to be with someone of another gender. Myths like these, in turn, contribute to prejudice and discrimination against bisexual people, who may face such hurtful attitudes both from the straight majority and from gays and lesbians.

For many bisexual people, the gender of their partner isn’t nearly as essential a factor as others seem to think it is. We maynoticeit, sure, but we don’t sit around thinking, “I’m very glad that I’m dating both Suzie and Tom because Suzie is a girl and Tom is a boy!” It’s just like you can be attracted to blondes, brunettes,andredheads, without necessarily feeling stifled and unfulfilled if you’re only dating brunettes at a given point in time.

I remember getting into a heated debate with a friend about bisexuality and he kept insisting that bi people will want to switch around between boy and girl or whatever for the pure reason of “Oh, I think I might want some pussy instead of cock today” - and he didn’t realise I was bi. He tried to end the debate with, “well I know one bisexual girl who does this …etc… blah… BS” and his face turned pretty red when I told him what he said was alien to me and I AM a bi woman. 

Anyway, it felt good.

Super CUTE Toy Dog

That may be the title of the video… but it IS super cute…

The Government is clear that abuse is not just physical. Victims who are subjected to a living hell by their partners must have the confidence to come forward.

Meanwhile, I want perpetrators to be in no doubt that their cruel and controlling behaviour is criminal.

We will look at the results of this consultation carefully in order to continue providing the best possible protection and support for victims of domestic abuse.

A Leidenfrost droplet impregnated with hydrophilic beads hovers on a thin film of its own vapor. The Leidenfrost effect occurs when a liquid touches a solid surface much, much hotter than its boiling point. Instead of boiling entirely away, part of the liquid vaporizes and the remaining liquid survives for extended periods while the vapor layer insulates it from the hot surface. Hydrophilic beads inserted into Leidenfrost water droplets initially sink and are completely enveloped by the liquid. But, as the drop evaporates, the beads self-organize, forming a monolayer that coats the surface of the drop. The outer surface of the beads drys out, trapping the beads and causing the evaporation rate to slow because less liquid is exposed. (Photo credit: L. Maquet et al.; research paper - pdf)
