is this beautiful solidarity too much for you, anon?

Oh look it’s the video that gif is from, which makes the cat’s total lack of distress even more clear than the original gif.

The washing machine is not turning. The cat is.

Biology’s cruel joke goes something like this: As a teenage body goes through puberty, its circadian rhythm essentially shifts three hours backward. Suddenly, going to bed at nine or ten o’clock at night isn’t just a drag, but close to a biological impossibility. Studies of teenagers around the globe have found that adolescent brains do not start releasing melatonin until around eleven o’clock at night and keep pumping out the hormone well past sunrise. Adults, meanwhile, have little-to-no melatonin in their bodies when they wake up. With all that melatonin surging through their bloodstream, teenagers who are forced to be awake before eight in the morning are often barely alert and want nothing more than to give in to their body’s demands and fall back asleep. Because of the shift in their circadian rhythm, asking a teenager to perform well in a classroom during the early morning is like asking him or her to fly across the country and instantly adjust to the new time zone — and then do the same thing every night, for four years.

This is why you have every right to be tired.

And, in defiance of every medical study on the subject that’s been run, they keep pushing the start time of high school earlier and earlier.

I used to sleep through my first period class every morning. I’m really lucky that the year I had the most trouble staying awake, I was taking creative writing with a teacher I’d made friends with: she knew it was no reflection on her and I did extra projects to make up for it.

Still, shit ain’t right.

Ferguson from my TL- August 18 (2/3)

chauvinistsushi:

Telling the people of Ferguson to take this anger and “channel” it to the polls, i.e elect officials that reflect them, is so fucking beside the point and victim blaming. This is ignoring disenfranchisement of the black voter (racism) and the poor voter (can’t take time off to vote). This is ignoring how expensive it is to run for office. This is ignoring that this is a matter of the dehumanization of black people and not some trivial political disagreement. Like this only serves to uphold what you think is a democracy, to uphold your just world fallacy.
