i made a thing cause i have feels
What do you mean it’sbeing cancelled?
Going to be cancelled? How so? Have the ratings been bad? I know it’s expensive to produce, so they will need loads of eyes on the tube for it to be worthwhile to the network, but if Revolution still got one season (and this is Fox, not NBC) you’re assured of one season, right?
Its ratings are mediocre, really. Not terrible but not great. Being on Fox might help, but I also feel like the fact that they pushed back the premiere late doesn’t bode well. That said, ratings-wise it’s doing okay considering it’s up against the juggernaut that is The Voice. I don’t know if it will be canceled or not, but I hope not, because it’s pretty solid as a show.
i thought wombats were like a lot smaller. a LOT smaller. are we sure this isn’t a bear
i always figured wombats were rat sized this cant be real
This is a standard size….?
did i fall into an alternate universe last night
they are usually approximately 1 meter (40 inches)
but… but… they look like squirrels… HOW CAN THEY BE THIS BIG?! ARE THEY ON STEROIDS?!
As an Australian I can confirm this is the standard size of a wombat.
In fact, they are such solid animals that if you were to hit one with your car (at a reasonably slow pace, of course), they will stumble for a second, then continue on their mystical wombat path.
Motherfucking wombats FTW.
WHAT THE FUCK AUSTRALIA
"[Pope Francis’] encyclical is about economics, and it reveals a disturbing ignorance.
I say this with deference and respect. I also say this as a traditionalist Roman Catholic who laments the post-Vatican II watering down of sacred traditions, lessening of moral teaching and trivialization of liturgical practices. But I also say this as a firm believer that Pope Francis is the Vicar of Christ on Earth and, as such, personifies the teaching authority of the Church. He is morally and juridically capable of speaking ex cathedra — that is, infallibly — but only after surveying and distilling traditional Church teachings and only on matters affecting faith and morals.
Thank God, so to speak, that his teaching authority is limited to faith and morals, because in matters of economics, he is wide of the mark.
His encyclical, entitled “Joy of the Gospel,” attacks free market capitalism because it takes too long for the poor to get rich. “They are still waiting,” the pope wrote.
Well, without capitalism, which rewards hard work and sacrifice, they will wait forever."
spoiled rich conservative white male brats don’t like being spanked by their patriarchal daddy! it huuuuurrrrts
NO DADDY I WANT THE POOR TO DIE IN THE STREETS WHILE I CRUISE AROUND IN MY BMW
AND I WANT YOU TO TELL ME I’M JUSTIFIED WHILE I DO IT
DADDY Y ARE YOU BEING SO MEEEEAN
YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT ECONOMICS!
cry moar you filthy little mammon loving shits
I think the most ridiculous thing is that this duder seems to think economics are not a moral issue.
It’s also depressing how little people actually understand economic theory beyond the ultra basic, ultra stupid “let the market be” nonsense. Would that people would explore beyond Microeconomics 101. It’s like if I acted like I knew everything about math because I can add and subtract.
but as with most social sciences, people think they can just skim the highlights and figure the rest out because hey, they LIVE you know?
Anyway, I feel like the free market fetishism is finally getting its comeuppance. As much as people shade the Millenials, they’re not the same sort of people as the Gen Xers and older. They’re the generation that realizes what fucking bullshit the whole, “work hard and you’ll do great” meme is and they’re probably the generation that will fix it. The Baby Boomers dying off will certainly help, too, because the more people who forget the Cold War, the better chance we have as a country to stop this failed economic policy.
my university and my department is totally cromulent and the funding is great and I feel like getting my PhD there will be very beneficial for my future career and I know I’m getting a really top-tier graduate education and I’m very lucky because I’m in a highly ranked program and I’ll be working with some amazing people
but on the other hand I hate this geographical area so fucking much that it’s kind of destroying my soul. Every time I venture out into the world I come home fucking angry.
I miss Portland so much. I miss seasons. I miss nice people. I miss not feeling like I’m constantly in a crowd. I miss that laid-back west coast attitude. I miss the feeling of knowing when I was talking to people that they think mostly like me. But people here don’t think like me. It’s like their brains are just wired differently and I don’t belong.
I know I can get through this but spending the next 5-7 years here is really fucking depressing. Being near my mom is nice, though, and it’s my only consolation, being near family. Because otherwise this place is a fucking hellhole.
Of course it is.
ALL BITCHES THIS IS MY HOME TOWN TAKE A FUCKING SEAT WHILE I TELL YOU THIS STORY. GET A BOWL OF POPCORN BECAUSE THIS SHIT IS DOPE
IN THE 1940’S PORTLAND WAS PUTTING IN LAMPPOSTS AND FOR WHATEVER GOD DAMN REASON THIS ONE NEVER GOT FILLED.
IN 1946, DICK FAGAN, AN AMERICAN IRISHMAN WHO WROTE FOR THE OREGON JOURNAL, GOT BLOODY FUCKING BORED AT HIS JOB AND WOULD LOOK OUT HIS WINDOW ONTO THIS SAD EXCUSE FOR ROAD CONSTRUCTION HOLE. ONE DAY HE SAID “FUCK THIS” AND PLANTED SOME FLOWERS.
HE WROTE ABOUT THIS NEW FUCKING PARK AND SPOKE ABOUT HOW LEPRECHAUNS LIVED THERE AND SHIT. MOTHERFUCKING LEPRECHAUNS IN THE MIDDLE OF DOWNTOWN, WHAT THE SHIT.
HOLD ONTO TO THE EDGE OF YOUR SEATS BECAUSE THIS RIDE GETS EVEN BETTER. THIS PARK HOLDS A GUINNESS WORLD RECORD FOR BEING THE SMALLEST PARK WITH WITH INFORMATION SAYING “It was designated as a city park on 17 March 1948 at the behest of the city journalist Dick Fagan (USA) for snail races and as a colony for leprechauns”. MOTHER. FUCKING. SNAIL RACES. BITCHES.
IT’S EVEN BEEN PIMPED OUT OVER THE YEARS
HO HO HO MOTHERFUCKS WE CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS HERE
WE CARE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT.
THE BEST PART IS THAT IT EVEN HAD OCCUPY PORTLAND PROTESTERS
SO I HOPE YOU FUCKING LEARNED SOMETHING TODAY ABOUT TINY ASS PARKS.
