Do you remember those boys that go to the ‘hood’ and mess with people all for the sake of a “prank”? Well, they went to a radio station for an interview and the hosts there called them out on their racist shit and it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Check this video out. 

Thank you Ebro!!!!!!!

Missing sleep may hurt your memory
Lack of sleep, already considered a public health epidemic, can also lead to errors in memory, finds a new study by researchers at Michigan State University and the University of California, Irvine.
The study, published online in the journal Psychological Science, found participants deprived of a night’s sleep were more likely to flub the details of a simulated burglary they were shown in a series of images.
Distorted memory can have serious consequences in areas such as criminal justice, where eyewitness misidentifications are thought to be the leading cause of wrongful convictions in the United States.
“We found memory distortion is greater after sleep deprivation,” said Kimberly Fenn, MSU associate professor of psychology and co-investigator on the study. “And people are getting less sleep each night than they ever have.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls insufficient sleep an epidemic and said it’s linked to vehicle crashes, industrial disasters and chronic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes.
The researchers conducted experiments at MSU and UC-Irvine to gauge the effect of insufficient sleep on memory. The results: Participants who were kept awake for 24 hours – and even those who got five or fewer hours of sleep – were more likely to mix up event details than participants who were well rested.
“People who repeatedly get low amounts of sleep every night could be more prone in the long run to develop these forms of memory distortion,” Fenn said. “It’s not just a full night of sleep deprivation that puts them at risk.”

Anonymous said: So I'm a virgin, and my boyfriend is not. I totally trust him and know I can talk to him about anything, but for some reason it's hard for me to have sex with him because it bothers me that he's not a virgin. (He dated her for two years, and she ended up cheating on him an getting pregnant with the other guys kid). But he lost his virginity to her, and even though we talk about it, I can't seem to get over it. Any tips on getting through it?

goodfuckingsex:

I felt the same when my boyfriend and I first started dating but I just decided to be a big girl and get over it because he was with me now and wanted to make love to me, not her. Sometimes, you just have to choose to be an adult about things instead of being bothered over petty things.

Mass rallies across Iran in support of Gaza
Iranians took part in huge rallies across the country on Friday to show solidarity with Palestinians, urging them to keep up their struggle despite Israel’s terror campaign in Gaza that has killed over 800 people, mostly civilians.
Iranian state television footage showed hundreds of thousands of people demonstrating in the capital Tehran. They chanted “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” and carried pictures of Palestinian children killed in Gaza.
State media said “millions” of people joined the rallies nationwide in about 700 cities, which were called to mark Iran’s annual day of solidarity with Palestinians.
People condemned US support for Israel and burned US and Israeli flags. State television said they also criticized foreign governments, who they said had remained silent about Israel’s crimes against humanity.
"Raise your voice. Remaining silent means allowing the Zionist regime to continue genocide of Palestinians," said a statement read at the Jerusalem Day rally, broadcast live on state TV.

In Alaska, wood frogs freeze for seven months, thaw and hop away
"On an organismal level they are essentially dead," said Don Larson, a graduate student at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks who studies frogs. "The individual cells are still functioning, but they have no way to communicate with each other."
The craziest thing of all may be that in this frozen state, they can withstand temperatures as low as zero degrees Fahrenheit for as long as seven months, and then, when spring arrives, thaw out and hop away.”

As an ultimate fuck you to rule-keeping scripture zealots everywhere, Jesus hung out with whores. Embracing whores was a double rebuke to the Jewish scripture-thumpers because it put Jesus on the side of the pagan, prostitute-condoning Roman occupiers and made him a traitor in the culture wars of the day. Yet, the anointing of Jesus by a prostitute is one of the few events reported in all four gospels. As Jesus blessed and defended her, Matthew’s gospel says the disciples “were indignant” while Luke describes the woman who did the anointing as “a woman in that town who lived a sinful life,” which is a coded phrase for a filthy hooker who is certainly not one of us. Jesus’ embrace of a woman from an enemy tribe in a culture where tribal belonging was paramount distressed both his followers and enemies. His attitude to the “other” was as incomprehensible as if he’d blurted “E=mc2 is the equation of mass–energy equivalence.
