Dakarai Molokomme, a 15-year-old starving child from a small village in Zimbabwe, has just told , one of the most famous pop stars in the world, to  and f*** , the local media are reporting exclusively.

“Yes, it’s true, I told Madonna to go f*** herself. Do you want to know why?” Dakarai asked. “It’s the same thing every time with these snobby rich Americans. Every once in a while they come to show us their support for the so-called eradication of poverty by adopting a child from a starving family, but they actually do more harm than good. Transracial international adoptions are part of the white savior industrial complex,” Dakarai explained.

In further discussions with journalists from the media, the  stated that “none of the children here actually want to be taken away from their family and friends so they can be displayed as some kind of trophy in the homes of self-righteous singers or actors who want to score some points with the media and Oprah.”

“If they really want to help us, they should get Big Pharma to ship us some anti-retroviral drugs for the AIDS epidemic, or build schools and hospitals. If they don’t want to do that, then they can all go f** themselves!” the child told reporters.

The 15-year-old also stated that he would say the same thing to any one of those American or European “faux humanitarian posers”, except for Bono, whom he said he would also kick in the groin.

“Bono’s efforts to save the African savage from itself prove that the colonial imperative is alive and well,” Dakarai said as he walked with other village children collecting sticks to build a tree fort.

THIS IS THE RAWEST 15 YEAR OLD ALIVE

Dang!

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

Okay yes but HERE’S THE DEAL.
You absolutely should not pay $120 for an Amazon subscription service. Just. Don’t do it.
But you know what is a SUPER GOOD IDEA??
Requesting (wait for it) the books you want to read! (wait there’s more) FROM YOUR LOCAL LIBRARY.
This is useful to authors, this is useful to other readers, and it is useful to libraries. Libraries exist to be used. They get shut down at least in part because no one uses them. 
If you want to read a book that’s SO INDIE you can’t get it through the library it would not kill you to shell out $2.99 for it tbh. But that’s almost never going to be the case.
REQUEST THE BOOK. AUTHORS LOVE THAT TRUST ME.

ABC’s new show, Galavant, for those who can’t get past the region lock on Youtube

I… it… you….

If someone mixed The Princess Bride with Spamalot! and threw in some Blackadder and finished it off with a dash of Mel Brooks, you might get something like this?

Or not….

Everyone pause and bask in this moment. I have found a sex toy crowdfunding campaign that isn’t shitty.
It’s a squeezable silicone bulb that measures the clenching of your pelvic floor muscles, and it’s called the kGoal. It wirelessly communicates with an app on your phone, which serves up your exercise history, suggested workouts, and “max squeeze.” I see a community scoreboard coming on.
This is way better than the primitive white plastic devices with sketchy pump bulbs that I found when researching kegel strength testers for a recent planned orgy…
Read the rest: Hell Yes: kGoal kegel trainer exerciser sex toy » Hey Epiphora

Welp. I think I FINALLY found a really solid reason to get a smart phone…

Help save the honey bees! Please reblog and share :)

I’m very skeptical about this. Last I’ve heard, CCD is caused by a combination of factors, and to blindly point a finger at one source without references just ticks my bullshit meter. Anyone got science to back this up?

I checked out this page on the Ontario Beekeeper’s Association website, and found a couple of recent papers on the subject (though, granted, they are against the use of neonicotinoid, so it might be a one-sided story). The general consensus seems to be (bee?) that sublethal doses of neonicotinoids cause changes in behavior and physiology which leads to colony collapse - immune suppression to make them more susceptible to disease, negative change in foraging behavior, abandonment of poisoned hives, etc - so, yes, it seems that it is a combination of factors, which are aggravated by pesticide poisoning.

I’ve seen a bunch of “save the bees” post floating around tumblr, but this is the first one anyone bothered to put sources on.
Thank you. (However I’m not going to look at the sources now, but hopefully I will remember to do so later.)

Not to mention that stopping the use of these pesticides is one of the easiest things we could control— if people were willing. It’s hard to control parasites and internal issues that the bee faces, but it is not hard to stop spraying crops with harmful pesticides.

"

When we talk about teenagers, we adults often talk with an air of scorn, of expectation for disappointment. And this can make people who are presently teenagers feel very defensive.

But what everyone should understand is that none of us are talking to the teenagers that exist now, but talking back to the teenager we ourselves once were – all stupid mistakes and lack of fear, and bodies that hadn’t yet begun to slump into a lasting nothing.

Any teenager who exists now is incidental to the potent mix of nostalgia and shame with which we speak to our younger selves.

May we all remember what it was like to be so young. May we remember it factually, and not remember anything that is false, or incorrect.

May we all be human – beautiful, stupid, temporal, endless.

And as the sun sets, I place my hand upon my heart, feel that it is still beating, and remind myself: Past performance is not a predictor of future results.

Stay tuned now for whatever happens next in your life.

Goodnight, Night Vale. Goodnight.

"
