Stuff I found while looking around
– A tutorial on Derek Johnston’s different take on a selfie
– A compilation of people falling? SIGN ME UP.
– An open letter from your horrible Facebook friends:
Let’s make a deal: if you agree to maybe cool it with all the updates about your rooftop garden and your breakfast raves, we’ll try to be less mad about every single thing that Nicki Minaj has ever done or will ever do. But no promises!

– 9 Photo Composition Tips (feat. Steve McCurry)
– Dramatic photo shows doctor grieving after losing patient:
“The man pictured was unable to save one of his patients. Though this is a common occurrence in our field of work, the patients we lose are typically old, sick, or some combination of the two. The patient that died was 19 years old, and for him, it was one of those calls we get sometimes that just hits you.”
– iNotRacist is a new app that gives you credit for all the not-racist stuff you do.
– Being White Means Never Having to Say You’re Sorry:
When white people misbehave, however, they rarely represent more than themselves, even when they’re members of an organization like, say, SAE. But just the responsibility of being held accountable for how one’s individual behavior and thoughts is still too great for so many of the white people who have been caught out engaging in racist behavior. They are routinely defended with excuses of inebriation, misspeaking, and unintentional bigotry. Even then, being white often means doing wrong without the perception of bringing your entire race into enough disrepute that it has consequences for you. This is what privilege is: to speak and act only for yourself, and even then only when you feel like it.

– PAY ATTENTION TO EVERY SINGLE WORD, GIRLS: Judy Greer’s Advice for Women in Their 20s
– We Are Our Heroes: On Activism In The Age Of Celebrity Worship:
A celebrity’s words shouldn’t hold higher standing than anyone else’s. Because a “regular person’s” thoughts are just as valuable and hold the same potential as anyone else to spark a revolution. Movement is about the action, not the person doing the action.
– “I made some self-help books and left them at a local bookstore”
– Forget Your Team: Your Online Violence Toward Girls and Women Is What Can Kiss My Ass:
I read in vivid language the various ways, humiliating and violent, in which my genitals, vaginal and anal, should be violated, shamed, exploited and dominated. Either the writer was going to do these things to me, or they were what I deserved. My intellect was insulted: I was called stupid, an idiot. My age, appearance and body were attacked. Even my family was thrown into the mix: Someone wrote that my “grandmother is creepy.”
– “Brandy, that is a chihuahua bed.”
Much of the despair we’d seen was generated by the “OOPS approach” to sickness. “Out Of Pocket Spending,” a leading cause of destitution in countries rich, poor, and in-between, was largely responsible for the stupid deaths we witnessed, since the care people paid for was expensive and mostly bad.
