PLEASE READ. WILL NOT HURT TO AND FORWARD. Kids are putting Drano, tin foil, and a little water in plastic drink bottles and capping it up - leaving it on lawns, in mail boxes, in gardens, on driveways etc. just waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the rubbish, but you’ll never make it!!!
If the bottle is picked up, and the bottle is shaken even just a little - in about 30 seconds or less it builds up enough gas which then explodes with enough force to remove some your extremities. The liquid that comes out is boiling hot as well. Don’t pick up any plastic bottles that may be lying in your yards or in the gutter, etc. Pay attention to this. A plastic bottle with a cap. A little Drano. A little water. A small piece of foil. Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM!! No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc. Please ensure that everyone that may not have email access are also informed of this. 
Snopes confirms.

I’ve dealt with these before. If you find one:
Do not touch it
Do not touch it
Clear the area around it. It will explode on its own in time.
Once it explodes, do not make contact with the liquid inside. If needed, flush it away with large amounts of water.
Do not try to detonate it. You’ll probably be disfigured.
I’ve seen what these can do. The acidic liquid inside can strip the paint off a car.

when i visited vancouver these were everywhere. it’s not a fucking joke they’re actually scary

Just a reminder that there are awful shitty people out there doing awful shitty things to everyone else

there was a bunch of these at disneyland

i found one in my back yard, when i let my dogs out, i pulled them back inside, took my cousins bb shotgun and shot it from a safe distance (i was in my house and shot from the screen door. When it went off, my family and neighbors came running to see if everything was ok. I told them what happened and to watch out for them. 
These things are not a joke! When we went to check the damage there was a fucking hole in the ground. The dirt in my yard is like CLAY.
This shit is bad news

PLEASE DON’T BE AN ASSHAT. PLEASE DON’T LEAVE BOMBS IN PEOPLE’S YARDS.

Quote 18 Apr 400 notes
what I was thinking today
is that art has always been a survival tool for me
I’m USING art, I don’t think of myself as an artist before I think of myself as a person
and if what I’m making isn’t art anymore
I don’t really care
because I’m doing what I need to to survive in my own mind

Quote 17 Apr 14,268 notes
Look, without our stories, without the true nature and reality of who we are as People of Color, nothing about fanboy or fangirl culture would make sense. What I mean by that is: if it wasn’t for race, X-Men doesn’t make sense. If it wasn’t for the history of breeding human beings in the New World through chattel slavery, Dune doesn’t make sense. If it wasn’t for the history of colonialism and imperialism, Star Wars doesn’t make sense. If it wasn’t for the extermination of so many Indigenous First Nations, most of what we call science fiction’s contact stories doesn’t make sense. Without us as the secret sauce, none of this works, and it is about time that we understood that we are the Force that holds the Star Wars universe together. We’re the Prime Directive that makes Star Trek possible, yeah. In the Green Lantern Corps, we are the oath. We are all of these things—erased, and yet without us—we are essential.

I think the next time someone gets confused as to possibly why people were hoping Katniss would be portrayed as nonwhite, this quote above is why.

(via thelouringlady)

Excellent points.

In a way, narratives of the struggle of people of color whitewashed into science fiction so they are easily digestible for suburban white people (e.g. me) is the ultimate appropriation (at least in the realm of pop culture/fiction.) All of the struggle, none of the history.

These narratives are compelling and often well told in sci-fi, so I don’t find it surprising or that problematic that more privilege people find themselves in them - that’s what a great* story does. But seen through this lens it is really problematic, as commenters above also point out, when the more privileged parts of the “fandom” then accept only the whitewashed version, and exclude the reading of people of color.

*great as in well-made, compelling, not as in happy, good for the people in the story/history. I’m also sure that I’m not the first person to make these comments.

Link 15 Apr 146 notes Click here to support Radical Sobriety Workshop at the AMC by Fabian Romero»

prettyofcenter:

Hello Friends, Comrades and Family,

I am writing to ask for support in my travels to the Allied Media Conferece this year. My workshop “Radical Queer Sobriety” has been accepted and I am preparing to return to this fertile conference for more inspiration about liberation. I’m asking for help because I will be graduating this June, have no job lined up (am looking) and have just enough budgeted income from gigs to make ends meet but not enough to make it to the AMC. 
About me:

Fabian Romero is a Two Spirit Queer Chicano poet, blogger and artist. Their sincere poetry and stories stem from their experiences as an Economic Refugee, speaking two languages, Queerness and survival as a agricultural migrant laborer. Fabian was born in Michoacán, Mexico and came to North America when they were seven years old. Since 2007 they have performed poetry and facilitated anti-oppression and self care workshops throughout North America. Their poetry and stories have been published in several zines and publications including Uproot zine, Troubling the Line: Trans and Genderqueer Poetry and Poetics and To The Exclusion of All Others: Queers Questioning Gay Marriage. Currently they are pursuing a BA at Evergreen State College with a focus in writing, social justice and film and are a part of the Brown Boi Project. 

About the Workshop:

In this closed space for self identified radical queer sober folks or those considering sobriety, this workshop will help build or hone skills for navigating queer spaces that are often centered around drugs and alcohol. My goal as a facilitator is to have participants walk away with more understanding of how addiction is connected to ablism, how to set boundaries with people we love and how to take care of our needs to maintain our sobriety. I’d also love to build connections and friendships.

Thank you for considering this. Thank you for your support. I value each and every bit of it whether you donate a little or share this link. 

In Solidarity,
fabian romero

thank you to all the folks who contributed to my fundraising goal for the Allied Media Conference. i’ve been really touched and honored and honored to have your support.

Quote 10 Apr 15 notes
My body is everything that’s happened to me. Love is a thing my body borrows to forget. Love is a pill. My body is water. My body is a tongue and love dissolves.
Quote 5 Apr 1,167 notes

The summer I moved to Berkeley, I got a job
selling insurance door-to-door.
I’d walk through the winding lines
of pastel Dollhouses, not knocking, not selling,
just looking at all those families
that were not mine. Living a those lives
I’d never have.

In California there are huge grapefruit trees
right in peoples front yards.
For lunch, I picked the fruits off the sidewalk
and carried them to the little Spanish parks
with their rickety, ancient gazebos
and yelling children. I’d sit cross-legged in the grass
and split the pink flesh with my bare hands
devouring it like a heart.

That was the summer I wanted him to marry me so bad
I told everyone he asked when he didn’t.
I’m not saying that’s why I left.
The not saying doesn’t make it
any quieter.

The juice spilled over my hands so carelessly
it felt like betrayal. No one ever yelled at me for stealing.
Some things grow so easily
they demand to be given away.

Quote 30 Mar 125 notes
I want to save a moment. I want to save what a sunset looks like from seat 8A on a plane. I’m not at that moment trying to think about the audience. I’m trying to think about getting it right, because the act of saving something is not saving it like you want it to be. It’s saving it like it is, so that’s what I’ve started doing.
