Gorgeous Jewelry

I love this post from the Hairpin. The jewelry is beautiful and the history is amazing. I love the inclusion of the suffragette's prison knife.

Rape Stereotypes

Here's a fantastic post from Heather at Scarleteen about the damage that rape stereotypes perpetuate. She also talks a little about what sexualizing teens means and gives some grim statistics. She makes so many important points I couldn't possibly list them all.

Best place for this outfit?

I love this drawing Jess Fink did of Harley Quinn as a dude, wearing the ridiculous new Linkoutfit the female character is now supposed to wear.

You know where Harley could make a fortune wearing this? At Renn Fest, running one of those test your strength games. He's already got the hammer.

Master of Martial Hearts - On DVD 8/10/2010 - Anime Trailer


This is seriously the worst. They played it at con last year and the audience went nuts at the final episodes. And that's those who could get past the awful fan service.

Drug Recall of Hundreds of Medicines

A recall of hundreds of drugs was announced because of possible contamination with penicillin. These range from medications like over the counter pain killers to prescription heart medication to vitamins and everything in between. If you take anything you should take a look at the list and check the medication in your home.

This is Beautiful and Fun

A film called Dripped. It's an homage to Jackson Pollack. It's about an art thief with a special talent.

Another Dog Shooting in Severn

Sad news out of Severn where another dog has been shot. This one was on the leash when an off leash dog approached and the two fought. Most of the people walking the dogs were kids and the off leash dog owners went for help, returning with their parents. The dad was armed and shot the leashed dog.

Why did this person think that shooting the dog, while kids were there, was the thing to do? I can't imagine. The injured dog was taken to the vet but she succumbed to her injuries. The other dog is in custody at animal control.

Sad and sounds like the whole thing could have been avoided. Our county has pretty strict leash laws.

Another dog was shot and killed in Severna Park, after entering a man's yard. He drew his gun from the holster and shot it when it was about ten yards away. He was arrested I believe.

I love this so much

Someone who is bitter and unhappy over their friends' good fortune writes in for advice and gets an amazing answer that really gets to the heart of privilege. I especially like this part:

You might, for example, be interested to know that the word prestigious is derived from the Latin praestigiae, which means conjuror’s tricks. Isn’t that interesting? This word that we use to mean honorable and esteemed has its beginnings in a word that has everything to do with illusion and deception and trickery. Does that mean anything to you, Awful Jealous Person? Because when I found that out, every tuning fork inside of me went hum. Could it be possible that the reason you feel like you swallowed a spoonful of battery acid every time someone else gets what you want is because a long time ago—way back in your own very beginnings—you were sold a bill of goods about the relationship between money and success, fame and authenticity, legitimacy and adulation?
