Something like ‘Monopoly’ is cruel and sadistic, but at least it doesn’t involve holding your family at gunpoint.
6 Children’s Games Clearly Designed By Psychopaths

#6. Ca$h ‘n Gun$: Shoot Your Friends and Family in the Head
We did not Photoshop that raucous good time pictured above.
The game Ca$h ‘n Gun$ (presumably spellchecked by Ke$ha) was released less than a decade ago for ages 10 and up, and there’s nothing more bizarre than seeing a photo of grandma pointing a Glock at little Timmy’s face.

I’d be down to play these! They seem fun!!!!!

"We went to the panchayat [local council] members and said, please give us some work. The work they gave, my work, was to clean the gutter, clean excrement from roads, clean the toilets, clean the village, and remove garbage. It is our caste. They will not give us any better work to do. Nothing that would give us dignity."

The picture is blurry, but I thought I’d share it regardless. I went out to the milkweed in the herb garden at the Nature Center (Houston, TX) to see who was home, and I found this roly poly little Milkweed Leaf Beetle (Labidomera clivicollis) larva amongst the aphids. Most likely the offspring of the adult I found a couple of weeks ago (see here).

"Give up defining yourself - to yourself or to others. You won’t die. You will come to life. And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are."

— Eckhart Tolle (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

"The photographs that have emerged during several days of unrest in Ferguson after the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a police officer have drawn mournful comparisons to pictures of the Deep South in the 1960s or of more recent racial unrest, like the 1992 Los Angeles riots. But they have also prompted a flood of commentary about the differences half a century has made in the visual economy…. Today, the imagery one sees depends on the filters one uses. One person’s Twitter feed may be full of footage of police firing tear gas or of peaceful protesters with their hands up. But David J. Garrow, a historian at the University of Pittsburgh’s law school and the author of several books on the civil rights movement, noted that when he searched for images of Ferguson on Google, roughly half showed what appeared to be looting. Such images look “more like Watts in 1965 or Newark in 1967, not Birmingham in 1963 or Selma in 1965,” Dr. Garrow said. And historically, he said, such photos were “deadly when it came to white public opinion.”"
