many things make a post


qotd, another kind of me too

"And I’m not ashamed to stand here, in front of six hundred people in this room, and millions more online, and proudly say that I live with mental illness, and that’s okay. I say “with” because even though my mental illness tries its best, it doesn’t control me, it doesn’t define me, and I refuse to be stigmatized by it."

And in case you didn't know: My name is Adrienne Martini. I live with chronic depression and I am not ashamed.


qotd, breaking

"Mr. Trump has definitely, positively never, ever, ever had gonorrhea, herpes, syphilis, chlamydia, the French, Spanish, or English pox, crabs, genital lice, crotch-crickets, Bulgarian junk-rot, the Weeping Cobra, the Gift that Keeps On Giving, Studio 54 Stall Surprise, or Bangkok Fire-Dick. Mr. Trump’s noted fidelity to his wives should put to rest all of these scurrilous rumors. In fact, our laboratory research shows that contact with Mr. Trump’s magnificent body kills all forms of STDs, and also cures scrofula, vertigo, blindness, sleep apnea, and the Jimmy Leg."

-- "BREAKING From Trump’s ‘Doctors’: Most Remarkable Physical Specimen of All Time!" by Rick Wilson. You really need to read the whole thing. It is magnificent.


qotd, even the Queen ...

It also appears that not everyone in the royal family has shared the queen’s enthusiasm for her fleet of corgis. In a television interview in 2012, Prince William, the queen’s grandson and the second in line to the British throne, expressed some issues with the dogs.

“They’re barking all the time,” he said. “I don’t know how she copes with it.”

Prince Harry, his brother, has also registered a noise complaint. “I’ve spent the last 33 years being barked at,” he told the BBC in 2017.

-- From the New York Times, after news that the Queen's last corgi had died.  I'm relieved because my corgi can't possibly be misbehaving if the Queen's corgs did the exact same thing.
