NASHVILLE: come see us do comedy, music, and a podcast live! And meet us too (no touching of DOB’s face)!

But can I touch sorenbowie's face

Depends if your reflexes are fast enough

This was a good little joke, but seriously don’t touch me.

Securing a Sustainable and Empowered Los Angeles

I spend a lot of time thinking about why Bruce Wayne could be better for Gotham than Batman and which animals look like candy. Meanwhile my wife is quietly doing real work and trying to save the world.  She  co-founded an extraordinary Environmental non-profit and now they can potentially secure $100,000 for their work. If you have ten seconds, please vote for the LA Sustainability Collaborative. They are doing amazing things.

Don’t ever fucking try to tell me that white people aren’t targeted and discriminated against for the color of their skin. Don’t ever try to fucking say that ANYONE has never been discriminated against. If you want fucking justice, then ACT on that justice.

HI UM NOPE
This headline is the deformed offspring of lies, bad reporting, and a Getty Image from 2012 taken after a man was beaten by police at the Occupy Wall Street protests.
The article cites no sources and reads like a Facebook Aunt telling a story they heard from their son’s buddy Taylor, most likely because it’s a poorly-paraphrased version of this also false article that calls itself ”White Man Cold-Cocked By Vicious Ferguson Mob In Blatant Racist Attack.” Money quote from the article:

“Most recently, a man was simply standing outside of a St. Louis McDonald’s where he was surrounded by a group of black man who punched the man in the face for no reason whatsoever. Seemingly unprovoked, the group intentionally targeted this man for nothing more than his skin color in a backwards attempt at justice for Mike Brown.”

Ah, yes, the classic “for no reason whatsoever” immediately followed by “for nothing more than his skin color in a backwards attempt at justice for Mike Brown” trick. That old reporting chestnut.
Anyway. The tale of an entire mob attacking this man was
followed up by showing these tweets, where the story originated:

This is all from the same article, mind you. There’s a paragraph describing a mob of black men attacking this white guy, and then they show the actual source describing a single black man punching the guy in the face once. Also? The Knockout Game doesn’t exist.
ALSO also?

So really, “Black Man Punches White Man In Face, Other Black Men Try To Apprehend Black Man Who Punched White Man In Face,” because Ferguson’s hero-to-asshole ratio is actually through the fucking roof.
And yet…

Anyway. It sucks that the guy got punched a couple weeks ago, but if you’re going to lie about it, try being just so much better at lying.

Cracked shouldn’t be the “journalists” catching this kind of thing. If you read something that sounds outrageous but tickles that part of your brain that wants it to be true, there’s a good chance it’s made up specifically to do that tickling. Take twenty minutes to research it before sharing or you sound like an idiot.

It's Time to Retire 'Doctor Who' -- powered by Cracked.com

Dear Tumblr,

I watched forty episodes across every season of the new Doctor Who and I hated it. I’m sorry, I tried.

I’ve always said, you can never predict what will happen between the Super Bowl and the first week of September.

If females are the largest voting bloc in America, and politicians understand this, how, if politicians are self interested actors, would this impact the policies and spending of the American government?

I think they’d pour a bunch of money and research into figuring out why men aren’t voting.
