WHEREDOTHEYSELLTHOSE?! I need them so bad. This is absolutely perfect.

They sell them at Target

This is a fantastic idea.

Raging pharmacology boner.

Bonus points for being single chemical pills.

you should check out their website! http://www.helpineedhelp.com

If you think that packaging is brill, wait until you see the site.

This company is a marketer’s wet dream.

That website is fantastic. Seriously, click on it and check out the whole site. Best waste of time EVER.

I just spent like 20 minutes on there. This is my new favorite company.

My college sells these. They work as good as the advertising is.

A programmer is going out for a stroll one evening. His wife asks him to swing by the store and pick up a gallon of milk, and if they had eggs, to get a dozen. He returned with twelve gallons of milk and said “They had eggs.”

"Children are required to be in school, where their freedom is greatly restricted, far more than most adults would tolerate in their workplaces. In recent decades we’ve been compelling them to spend ever more time in this kind of setting, and there’s strong evidence that this is causing psychological damage to many of them. And as scientists have investigated how children naturally learn, they’ve realized that kids do so most deeply and fully, and with greatest enthusiasm, in conditions that are almost opposite to those of school….Most people assume that the basic design of today’s schools emerged from scientific evidence about how children learn. But nothing could be further from the truth. Schools as we know them today are a product of history, not research.   …. Research has shown that people of all ages learn best when they are self-motivated, pursuing answers to questions that reflect their personal interests and achieving goals that they’ve set for themselves. Under such conditions, learning is usually joyful. The evidence for all of this is obvious to anyone who’s watched a child grow from infancy to school age. Through their own efforts, children figure out how to walk, run, jump, and climb. They learn from scratch their native language, and with that, they learn to assert their will, argue, amuse, annoy, befriend, charm, and ask questions.  ….
They do all of this before anyone, in any systematic way, tries to teach them anything. This amazing drive and capacity to learn does not turn itself off when children reach five or six. But we turn it off with our coercive system of schooling.”

yes.

YES YES YES YES YES

I know. This is a very controversial topic right now but hear me out. Because I am disabled and I am frustrated with what this site has turned ableism into. Nothing more or less than a list of words to be avoided . Tumblr informs me that that is all I have to face and struggle…

This, this, this, and this.

What I want to talk about:

  • Anita Sarkeesian sucks at the Scientific Method.
    • What the Scientific Method is.
      • Initial research. Hypothesis = TESTABLE statement. The testable statement creates an experiment in which to gather data and draw conclusions. “What are you basing any of this on?”

You’re talking about things that people don’t address as often, which makes me very happy. Are you going to touch on any subjects like her very narrow view of what should be perceived as ‘strong’ character traits? Or the more popular subjects like her intellectual dishonesty in regards to the footage theft and such?

Glad you asked! Her intellectual dishonesty and footage theft has been described by at least three other people, so I won’t go into that. What I really want to get into is how her standards for storytelling are warped, biased, and will result in worse stories.

Kay! I’m looking forward to this. I think the problem she highlights so well is an issue with feminism in regards to media overall. Everyone seems to demand females be role models, characters to be put on pedestal as shining examples of what they think the ideal woman should be. What most of them seem to forget that the most inspiring role models aren’t those who show us what we should be by already being there, but show us what we can be by walking the journey we need to take to get there.

I finally figured out why I have this habit of saying “yes” to things I don’t want to do (even more so where my parents are concerned) and it’s because I grew up being forced to respect their “no” while my “no” was completely ignored. 

This is something I’ve had to desperately fight for years now after realizing it, so I understand wholly how terrible dealing with it can be. Good luck.
