Buy JeanJAuthor a Coffee. ko-fi.com/jeanjauthor:
Technically it’ll be an iced tea. Oddly enough, iced tea lowers & fades my occasional random bouts with pointless/sourceless anxiety…so if you buy me a ko-fi, I’ll make it an iced tea, and that’ll make me ready & able to write a lot faster & a lot better…so…it’s double the value for your money, yaaaay!
i’m so glad earth only has one moon, if there were more i’d have to pick a favorite and that sounds too emotionally taxing to even fathom
I created a world with humans transported there from Earth in the wake of a disaster. The world has 3 moons, and they named them Neh, Yah, and Veh.
Literally, in thier language:
Neh = No
Yah = Yes
Veh = Maybe
…So you could have a resident of the planet (V’Dan) proclaiming, “Yes, I do like Ma
ryanccole: I just realized the climax of the Lion King is kind of hilarious.
Because it came down to a showdown fight between Scar and Simba. And here’s something great about them: they are the weakest little shits.
Scar was this skinny twig of a lion who probably only got the 11th+ portion of any kill because nobody liked him, and the only way he could one-up anyone was through trickery, and/or by softening them up with a wild
Blake didn’t realize they were transgender for a long time because of inadequate access to information as a Deaf person. Now they’re sharing their own story online so other Deaf trans people know they’re not alone.
Blake’s Instagram: @vlogsbyblake
I support enriching & broadening the lives of deaf folk, whether it’s through more accurate transcriptions of vlogs, or being able to express the fact that some are nonbinary in gender (they seem to be gen
So I haven’t seen anything on this subject in quite some time, but I am subscribed to FreePress’ email newsletter where they keep people updated.
Guys, the battle for the net isn’t over yet, just because you don’t see any more posts on it. This text is copy-pasted from the update email I received.
The Net Neutrality repeal is about to become official. The FCC is expected to publish its Net Neutrality rollback in th
What does it mean to both of you to see African culture celebrated in this way?
You can do this with the various nations & cultures found on the African continent, on the North American continent, on the South American continet, among the many islands of the Pacific Ocean…
What would’ve happened to Hawai’i if their last Queen had been given help instead of ignored when all those white robber barons stole her people’s wealth & nation
‘Our country needs to wake up’: U.S. biathletes use Olympic platform to push for gun control:
I want to point out something.
In my #scifi #military universe/series, Theirs Not To Reason Why…it is unusual for the military personnel in the Terran United Planets Space Force to walk around armed with anything more than a knife in a boot sheath..
At guard posts or walking guard patrols, yes, they’re armed.
In active combat zones, yes, they’re armed.
Bree Newsome on Twitter:
People evince inertial.
They will, far more often than otherwise, NOT move until made to move, on a position. Particularly if they’re currently comfortable.
Far too many people these days don’t empathize with others, don’t know how to empathize regarding others, and don’t want to empathize with the pain & suffering of others.
That’s why trying to work the empathy angle won’t work for the majority of th
As an atheist, putting my hand on the Bible and saying an oath before testifying to a court is less likely to get me to tell the truth than a pinkey promise
When my parents were fighting for custody, I was old enough to have a say, so they put me under oath to assure I was being honest with my feelings. Using my best serious face, knowing what was coming, when offered the bible to swe
Saw this shared on FB. It covers counter-arguments for a lot of the most common pro-gun points you’ll see people raise. Long read, but very helpful.
This is amazing. Thank you dude for doing all this work.
I wish I had this much eloquence on this topic.
I’m happy to let this expert do all the talking.

they all just look so happy and proud.
This was a magnificent synthesis of awesome storytelling, respectful cultural displays, and outstanding acting in a movie format.

I read an interesting article once that said that in a tolerant society, the only way to keep it working was to become intolerant to intolerance if that makes sense.
It’s called the irony of tolerance or somethi
Why would anyone want to consume it!?
I teach my 7th graders about the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide.
I bring in a graduated cylinder of it and we talk about how it’s used in nuclear power plants and gmo crops. How inhaling even the small amount I’m holding can lead to suffocation or even dea
Minority SafePack Initiative:
If you’re a EU national of voting age, please take a moment out of your day to visit this site and sign this Citizens’ Initiative to protect the linguistic rights of European minorities. SIGN THE INITIATIVE HERE
The initiative needs one million votes to be submitted to the European Commission and we’re still short of nearly 400,000 votes that need to be collected in the next 43 days or the initiative will fail.
Don’t buy them if you plan on reading them on a PC or Mac! Or, like, probably at all.
Though this isn’t mentioned anywhere public on B&N’s website, they killed their desktop app and their read-in-browser function a while back, and no longer permit any form of downloading of ebooks off of mobile apps or Nook devices.

Buy and carry a small wedge rubber doorstop.
If you have to lock/barricade yourself in this will stop them hard. They can even shoot the lock or try to kick it in and this works so well that anyone coming after you for whatever reason will have to literally come through the door.
Mass shooters, domestic violence, parental violence, cops, ICE…this will buy time. REBLOG LIKE THERE’S NO TOMORROW.
Shivam Bhatt on Twitter:
An excellent bit of history to study, in case you want to set a story in either location, & need to know how various peoples & religious beliefs crossed over & influenced each other.
Jonathan Cohn on Twitter:
This is information you need to know when writing about gunshot wounds. The type of gun, the ammunition, can make a huge difference in between whether or not your characters survive.
These things made a huge difference on how many of the victimsin Parkland did not survive.
The best thing coming out of Black Panther is the renewed calls for the release of jailed Black Panther members who’ve been incarcerated for decades. The FBI’s terrorism unit had labeled them “black identity extremists”, claiming that activists fighting police brutality posed a violent threat.
