On my commute, there has been a guy, 45+ in age, heavy but not obese. He looks to be high, stoned, 'nice', or VERY tired. On a moving train, he proceeds to trim his fingernails the same way you peel an apple. While drifting in and out of sleep. I'm all O_O now. I watch him sway with the train, his eyes slowly opening and closing, and I'm mentally preparing to administer 1st Aid if he cuts himself. I no longer feel in danger, but I'm now horrified at the potential carnage that might ensue. Still as O_O as ever.

At one point, he ACTUALLY NODS OFF, wakes up, remembers what he was doing, and continues - and misses the fingernail. He's moving so slowly, though, that he doesn't even break skin. He finishes up, and takes 6 minutes to close & repocket the knife.

This dude has been on my commute every day this week. I honestly have no idea what to expect of him in the future, save to expect ANYTHING.

I have a lot of unchanneled rage and resentment roiling inside me. I could use a molester or two upon whom to purge my soul.

It's 20-goddam-15. Why is this even news? Because it has to be, and that's a fucking shame.
Taraji P. Henson has been tapped to host the April 11 episode of Saturday Night Live; SNL made the announcement on Twitter. Henson will be joined by musical guests Mumford & Sons. This will be Henson’s first time hosting the show, and she expressed her excitement on Instagram: "DREAMS DO...

Beautiful, and inspiring.
 
For the people who wonder why I "waste my talents" writing dark, dark stuff.

So, this happened. Give it a read, then come back.


I live in a world where a 12 year old boy, a 17 year old boy, and countless others, while unarmed, are shot and killed by police because the officer "felt threatened." Yet this dude, who is not only VERY armed, but an actual threat, gets tased and arrested? I am so fucking outraged right now. To be clear, I do not believe Giroux should have been killed, I'm saying the others should NOT have. Michael Brown. Tamir Rice. John Crawford. COUNTLESS OTHERS. They all should be alive today. There are countries out there that do not issue firearms to their police forces. I'm thinking that's the way we should go until the system is improved. Because this is fucking bullshit.
The suspect in a string of shootings in Mesa, Arizona, which killed one man and wounded five others, is a convicted felon who was out on probation

The author science-squees at the end, it's kind of cute. Also, HOLY FUCK!
In or around May 2014, a truly remarkable thing happened: An object, dubbed G2, survived a very close encounter with a very large black hole. The black hole in this case is the supermassive one in the center of our own galaxy, the Milky Way. Our best estimate of its...

An interesting article about the relationship between etiquette and racism.
Fights over ill-advised tweets and overblown laws aren't distractions—they're how we revise the social norms that govern our lives.

Holy shit. 4 buildings are GONE. What's left of them will have to be knocked down.

DiBlasio and the NYPD want to put microphones on the street. For our own safety, of course.
ShotSpotter, the gunshot detection system introduced in New York City last week, is the NYPD’s newest high-tech tool against against gun violence. It comes

This place is amazing. In our search for a funeral home in the area, they were in our top 3 choices. They were not the least expensive of the options, but they were head and shoulders better than all of the others we checked out. The services they offer were above and beyond, giving a plethora of choices and options, including some off-the-cuff customization. The staff there is also impeccable. They all know they are dealing with grieving, emotional folk, and the manner in which the staff conduct themselves was astoundingly humane and sympathetic. Even when the inevitable snags came up, the staff, and in particular our funeral home representative, were understanding, empathetic, and most of all flexible, allowing us to come to solutions quickly and with little stress or frustration. Should you ever have to handle the inevitable passing of a loved one, I highly recommend this place. In a time of darkness and turmoil in our lives, Thomas M. Quinn & Sons provided goodness and light - I know it sounds cheesy as hell, but it's absolutely true; everything dealing with the process of putting our beloved to rest was stressful, frustrating process EXCEPT when we had to deal with this funeral home.
