les anglophones volent des mots à d’autres langues puis chialent parce qu’ils ne sont pas orthographiés comme ils le voudraient
"Some of them will laugh and most of them won't care, but for some they might honestly see that it's about going to the blackboard and raising your hand"
The song “Rape me" is as Kurt Cobain says, “an anti-, let me repeat that, anti-rape song,” - that presents rape as a crime of violence and power, not one of sexual desire - “It’s like she’s saying ‘Rape me, go ahead, rape me, beat me. You’ll never kill me. I’ll survive this’.”
Kurt once also said:
"Rape is one of the most terrible crimes on earth and it happens every few minutes. The problem with groups who deal with rape is that they try to educate women about how to defend themselves. What really needs to be done is teaching men not to rape. Go to the source and start there.”
For many, reading a good book can be a religious experience, but this new bookstore in Zwolle, The Netherlands takes that idea to a whole new level. Architects BK. Architecten were tasked with converting this 15th century Dominican church into a modern bookstore with the addition of 700 square meters of shopping space. But there was one major catch: all the historical elements of the 547-year-old building including stained glass windows, pipe organ, ceiling paintings and expansive arches had to remain intact.
Incredibly, BK. Architecten managed to add three levels of retail space to the side wings of the church in a manner that the entire structure can one day be removed in order to restore the church to its original design. In addition only three colors of building materials were used to mimic the existing palette of the cathedral’s interior to further ensure that the bookstore would pay reverence to the original space.
Waanders in de Broeren opened earlier this summer and you can see many more views on the architect’swebsite. Photos by Joop van Putten and Hans Westerink.

Just read this off to Harold and told him our happiness depends on never having kids.
No kids, tons of compliments, regular sex. Go team go!

These are all really good points and can definitely be applied to same sex couples as well but man, the creator(s) didn’t even attempt to do so. Just a few adjustments to some of the graphics and tweaking the language slightly would have done it, but nope. I mean, congrats on being super committed to heterosexism I guess?
If the research featured same sex couples it should have. If it didn’t it they shouldn’t. But they should have noted that the reseach groups didn’t feature same sex couples.
Leo McGarry: I am beginning to regret having hired any of you! We have a 42% job approval and you’re talking about waffles and something with Josh I don’t understand.
That’s it. That’s the show.
There are few shows I miss as much as this one.
Whenever we watch an episode we turn to each other when John Spencer comes on screen and have a quiet moment for him. He was so good, and this show was so good.
