On Weapons

@sissyemily Word to that. My mom was horrified when I moved to Boston for college and she saw all the buildings had bars on the windows, but really, lady, would you prefer they NOT be there?

On Friday Open Thread

@celeec4@twitter No matter what happens, by Monday morning it will be over. You do the best you can, and take comfort in the fact that you only have a few more days of stress before it's out of your hands.

On My Beauty Regimen

@commanderbanana I like the NARS tinted moisturizer in Alaska - it's the lightest shade they have, but it's more yellow than pink.

Also, is yellow...olive? I am pretty pale, and most of my genetic heritage is English, German, and French, but most light foundations are too pinkish to match me. And olive is...what, greenish? SKIN IS WEIRD.

On "Inherit the Whoop, Whoop!": The Trial That Rocked America

This is an interesting one because from what I've read, there are lots of groups of ICP fans who DO operate as gangs and DO commit horrible violent crimes. I don't know. Maybe I'm biased. But I'm interested to know what other 'pinners think.

On What I've Learned From My Side Job Critiquing Dick Pics

@ba-na-nas yes, I'm sure it was - but a really awkward choice of object!

@Marconi64 THANK YOU OH MY GOD

On What I've Learned From My Side Job Critiquing Dick Pics

This is seriously mind-blowing. Also, it reminds me of a dick pic a friend of mine received - the guy was holding a $20 bill next to it. NOT HOT. JUST WEIRD.

On Other Types of Showers

Oh man, this is fantastic! I can't wait for me "finally found a different job" shower. I might have so much more time and energy! I'll register for...painting lessons? Cooking classes? Yoga studio membership?

On A Thing You Should Probably Read If You Use the NuvaRing

@panther It's a hippy-dippy herbal tea that's supposed to "encourage menstruation" (and you know what they really mean.) I just drink it a few days before my period every month to be safe.

On A Thing You Should Probably Read If You Use the NuvaRing

So, a friend of mine does this kind of research for the FDA, and when I saw this I emailed him and said, basically, "what the hell are you people doing over there?" and his reply was, also basically, "this piece exemplifies that most medical writers have no idea what they’re talking about and neither do many of the researchers conducting the studies." Apparently the studies are incredibly biased and complicated - he said he gets contacted by a news source about articles like this at least once a month, and when he gives them balanced quotes, they never print them.

I will continue using condoms and tracking my cycle on a lunar calendar and drinking nettle tea. Because drugs are terrifying, and so is the industry around them.
