i say things
I was at Target yesterday and this little girl wanted to buy Halo 4, but this lady came up to her and said video games are for boys. This lady had a box of trix in her cart and so the girl grabs the box and said ‘and trix are for kids.’ and ran off with the cereal and the game.
Small child: 1; Lady: 0
This child wins in life.

“A three second exposure meant that subjects had to stand very still to avoid being blurred, and holding a smile for that period was tricky. As a result, we have a tendency to see our Victorian ancestors as even more formal and stern than they might have been.”
I’ve reblogged this before and I will reblog it again.
This is so great
no stop get out you precious old farts

This maybe the truest thing I’ve ever heard.
The video Michael Stipe saw in 1995 which made him ask Radiohead to be one of their support acts. Great Choice.
I just had to go back and rewatch this, I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I last saw it. It’s still beautiful. I still remember seeing it for the first time in high school and forgetting to take down the name of the band.
i remember karma police, high and dry and fake plastic trees being my first few rh vids (back when vh1 had good music on), and i was so intrigued by the singer with the interesting face. :P

So, Penny Arcade is looking for someone willing to do FOUR incredibly difficult IT jobs, be on-call 24/7, and be pushed to their limits, but isn’t exactly willing to pay you for it!
You know, despite the fact that they are a highly successful company that rakes in a ton of money for themselves by running several massive conventions every year and had all those Kickstarters that did super well.
But hey, if you’re a fan of Penny Arcade you probably don’t mind being exploited for the chance to *gasp* appear on camera sometimes! Right, nerd? You don’t care about being paid as long as you can live out your nerd dream working at the ultimate nerd company for nerds! It’s a dream come true, right? You don’t need to get PAID for dreams!
This sickens me. They can more than afford to properly pay an IT person a decent wage, most likely two so the job isn’t so harsh on a single person!
No, no, no, no, no. SERIOUSLY, a company as big as Penny Arcade can afford far better than this, yet some poor sap will jump on the chance and be naively grateful for essentially getting dry assfucked with a sandpaper condom.
HOLD THE PHONE.
I missed a part.
"You should have no problems working in a creative and potentially offensive environment.”
Or as this guy puts it: calamityjon How else can you interpret “Sometimes offensive workplace” except “So if you’re a girl or gay or ethnic, try not to be all bitchy about it”?
And don’t even hold your fucking breath if you’re trans*, we’ve learned.
ughhhh i loathe this company
Keep digging Penny Arcade.
Oh look, more reasons to despise Penny Arcade.
PA is basically why I will never go to PAX. Shitty people run shitty companies. Who knew?
It’s sad that someone’s going to probably jump on working themselves to death for little to no return out of their love for PA. Also you can forget being anything other than a straight cis white man in this job.
Penny Arcade continues to be the worst.
