Anaconda, Cute, and God: tripropellant i'm 100% not joking when i say that my gut reaction to this image is "this is a being of incredible power". i know that totally sounds like a joke i would make but i'm legitimately scared and impressed by and in awe at this thing tripropellant i have just been informed that this creature's name is ZHDUN, which sounds like the name of an ancient and long-forgotten deity and sounds exactly like what this thing's name would be mostdecoratedarsoninvestigator Zhdun loosely translates to "to wait". He waits tripropellant it's supposed to be a cute sculpture based on the idea of someone waiting for news at a hospital but i much prefer to think of it as a manifestation of the unfathomably powerful will of some kind of slumbering chthonic entity tripropellant a lot of people seem to be reblogging this post with zero commentary other than tagging it as #zhdun. i just want to inform everyone that every time you repeat his name like that you bring us one step closer to the moment when he gets out of that chair and begins to systematically inhale the entire physical universe vrabia the world could really do with an ancient benevolent god of hospital hallways whenever it appears there's always an empty seat next to it and you can sit there for as long as you need. it's there for you when you're sick and in pain and waiting for a verdict, when you're overwhelmed with anxiety or when you've been waiting for seven hours for news of how a loved one's life-saving surgery went. a kindly, quiet grey blob who waits with you in that suspended state of uncertainty. it's very old and very powerful and knows that hospitals are places of healing and hope only when studied superficially. at the core they are places of fear. a million terrors, great and small, seeping into the walls. so zhdun waits with you #stories #ngl i made myself sad a bit, mostly bc i could really use zhdun waiting with me sometimes #look at it it's so sweet and benevolent and not at all intimidating #it wouldn't judge you if you sat next to it and you cried An old god for the modern world

College, Friday, and Honeymoon: A CENTER FOR AMERICAN PROGRESS GRAPHIC Legally married and legally fired Congratulations! You legally marry on Sunday! THAT NIGHT honeymoon because of your sexual orientation. ON MONDAY You are legally denied a hotel room for your You are legally fired from your job for being gay when you try to update your employment forms to reflect that you are married You are legally evicted from your apartment when you try to add your new spouse to the lease. ON WEDNESDAY You are legally denied a loan because you are married to a person of the same gender. ON THURSDAY Your child is legally expelled from college when you notify the school of a new legal parent. ON FRIDAY You file a complaint but learn that you may not be protected from the discrimination you have faced. While you now have a marriage license, too many people still have a license to discriminate. No explicit LGBT protections Explicit LGB protections Explicit LGBT protections* Twenty-nine states lack explicit sexual-orientation nondiscrimination protections, and 32 states lack explicit gender-identity nondiscrimination protections. It is time for Congress to act. For more information, read the Center for American Progress report "We the People" at http://ampr.gs/wethepeople. Massachusetts lacks gender-identity protections in public accommodations. Source: Movement Advancement Project.

There’s still so much extremely important stuff to get to. Marriage is not an end goal. Keep it going! One step after the next! Closer at least!

Really sells that whole underlying theme of republicans acting like vindictive cunts for every percieved slight at the hands of democrats these past eight years. Its a party that now openly celebrates the misfortune of others while simultaneously patting themselves on the back for making "progress Like Reply 4-4 hrs Jesus where to start? First, were talking about Obamacare, not the ACA. Secondly, my health insurance is through the ACA, so l'm definitely not the kind of person to look down on others for needing help I'm just saying I'm glad this is finally happening because Obamacare was a faiure from the start. Remember healtcare.gov?!! All of this was the brain child of liberals and they couldn't even get the site to run right, so why should any of us have had faith they could get socialized healthcare right? We didnt and they couldnt. Again, it was a mistake that is finally being fixed. Like Reply 4 hrs Wait, . If You're on Obamacare why the fuck are you celebrating the outcome of this vote? If the Republicans get what they want, you'll lose your insurance Like Reply 4 hrs I'm not on Obamacare. My health insurance is through the ACA (Affordable Care Act), which was what they had to come up with after Obamacare crashed and burned as bad as it did. So I'm gonna be fine Like Reply 4 4 hrs Holy shit.. YOU DENSE Like Reply 6 4 hrs No, seroiusly, are you fucking kidding me? THEYRE THE SAME FUCKING THING! Obamacare is just a stupid name for the ACA that Republicans came up with to make moronic voters like you automaically despise the idea of it just by hearing the name. And it fucking worked I guess. Like Reply 5 4 hrs Jesus Christ, Seriously? All this time, and you never once checked for yourself to see what was up with the whole Obamacare controversy? Didn't once bother asking if relying solely on Glenn fucking Beck for your political commentary might not be the bestuse of all the resources you have at your disposal? Like Reply 4 4 hrs You think he's going to respond? Like Reply 1-4 hrs LOL fuck no. Would you? Like Reply-d 3-4 hrs Dude, I can't even believe he hasn't deleted this whole thing yet. I would have purged this the second I realized I accidentally admitted to all my friends just how easily swayedI am by things like confirmation bias Fucking hell. This may be the best thing that happens all year, and we're only 5 days in Like Reply 4 4 hrs haha no shit right?I would have deleted my entire Facebook account by now Its made even better by just how smug he was coming across, as though he was the one who orchestrated the Senate vote, only to flat out crash and burn so badly by exposing his own ignorance memehumor: “I’m not on Obamacare…”
