Swedish woman finds 2,000-year-old gold ring - The Local






"…it felt like a gift from the underworld," Lundin told The Local. "It was my magnificent ring. I didn’t want to give it up."

Could you imagine if science was actually governed by public opinion

Imagine having to reject evolution because you’re a scientist in Texas

Could you imagine if people actually read entire articles and checked the sources before spewing asinine shit? Yeah, me either.

The 1911 is no longer a frontline pistol.  It can be made reliable, but at greater cost, time and effort, because of its older design.  It has a low mag capacity.  It is heavy.

Nonetheless, the pistol still thrives in the hands of specialists willing to dedicate the time and expense necessary to maintain it properly.  The slim grip fits many hands well, and the gun points naturally for many. The heavy frame soaks up the recoil of the powerful .45 rounds.  Some find the 1911’s recoil more pleasing than the snappy recoil of 9mms in light polymer pistols.  That’s why I’ve got a 1911 in my bedside drawer.  

so do I. I take it with me always

Hands down my favorite pistol to shoot…there’s just nothing like holding a 1911, wood grips and a steel frame just connect with some deep primal thing inside you.

So Australia just took away freedom of press and gave itself the ability to monitor all computer usage in the country…smells like freedom to me. No guns, no freedom of movement…what’s next, concentration camps for possible ISIS members?




This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy. 


So this.

I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.

Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.

One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.

There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.

I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.

There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.

And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.

It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.

Wow…it’s Family Guy…written by the same guy that brought you a drug abusing bear and you’re attempting to analytically summarize it? Tumblr.
