What if mermaids live really long - and the longer they live, the bigger they grow?

(I guess the bigger they grow, the harder it is for them to stick their torso and even their head out of the water. That’s why no one ever sees the big ones. And definitely never the huge ones.)

A bit late to the party, but here’s my contribution to Julie Dillon’s Catalog of Merfolk. I didn’t have nearly as much time to finish this as I wanted, but I have to be up in 5 hours so this will have to do!

This is an awesome idea!

Eric Frein, Trooper Slaying Suspect, Called an 'Easy-Going Guy' - NBC News ›

letterstomycountry:

It’s almost comical to see yet another article describing a White shooter in apologetic terms, while Black victims of police shootings are almost always described as troublemakers.

A heavily armed White male in Pennsylvania shot two police officers in cold blood, and NBC wrote an article with a headline describing him as an “easy-going guy.”  Meanwhile, a completely unarmed Black teenager gets shot by a police officer under questionable circumstances in Missouri, and he gets described as "no angel" who "dabbled in drugs and alcohol" by the New York Times.  

And by the way, the White male in question was convicted of theft in the past.  The same thing Michael Brown was accused of.  Only, you know, not by the store owner who was allegedly robbed.

The media is kinder to White killers than it is to Black victims of state violence.  To see it play out again and again despite the fact that media critics have been pointing out these disparities for years is just mindblowing.

It’s five o’clock somewhere out in the Atlantic, but close enough.

Do you think Freud, obsessed with everything phallic, noticed that all his neighbors were Wieners? 

  1. Someone emails you to ask a question about work availability.
  2. You reply with a broad answer and a request for more details in order to give a specific answer.
  3. Someone ignores your questions completely for two days.
  4. You reply again, questions asked more directly, while hoping very hard that you’ve implied how pissed you are for being ignored without ever actually saying it.

In this “hypothetical” scenario, how reasonable do you think the reaction in step 4 sounds?

the best part about being in your 20’s is slowly caring less and less about what people think of you and surrounding yourself with good people

the worst is that I’m broke

I’m bored and alone and armed with a stupid amount of Flor de Caña.

I could write out a list of questions, but we both know you won’t ask me anything. But, because I can’t resist using the phrase: it’s TMI Boozeday and you should ask me things.
