SIGNAL BOOST THIS SHIT. I got a picture of this disgusting Islamophobic advertisement on the side of a Muni Metro this morning (Monday, October 20th) and I am pissed as fuck. I cannot believe that in a city as diverse as San Francisco, the public transit company would dare to run something as awful as this.

I’m going to track down their contact info and let them know exactly how I feel about hate speech on public vehicles. I’ll update with some numbers when I can but in them meantime I know they’re @sfmta_muni on Twitter.

Make some noise. This shouldn’t have been allowed by the company and it won’t be allowed by the riders.

Wow. That is some bullshit right there. WTF, MUNI?

Sitting here working on things for pickups, and I’m curious: How old were you when you first started reading Harry Potter? Do you remember how you first heard about it?

Dang, lookit the ages quoted in the other replies on this. I know from experience in fandom that there are other people like me who did not (could not have!) picked up Harry Potter until they were adults, even middle-aged ones vs twentysomethings like I was (I started in 2001), but dang. So many kids.

I don’t know who you are or what “things for pickups” means but I’m gonna answer this anyway. I was six! Technically my mom started reading it to me, not because I couldn’t read it (I read very early) but because she read to us as a bonding thing right up until we were teenagers.

"Pickups" means filming additional material, generally short bits of individual scenes, after principal photography for a film has finished. When they begin to cut a film together, they may discover they want some additional shots to choose from, something turned out not to work right and needs to be redone, etc. This additional filming is "picked up" afterwards.

haha I just applied to a library position at a university in rhode island

literally anything but another minimum wage job. please. that will kill me universe have mercy

torhallatalaksdater said: Your perfect for the position.

If i’m being 100% honest with you, I really would not mind being a librarian or something for a while because honestly I just love books and research and helping people find books for research and computers and programming and all that shit

like I really would not be displeased at all to be given this job okay

You possibly qualify as some kind of support staff (I don’t know your experience history), but being a librarian at a university almost certainly requires having an MLIS degree. There’s a lot of jobs going on in any library besides “librarian.”

You are correct; the position is for a support staff situation

I mentioned librarian because I always sort of wanted to get my MLIS degree and take a position as a librarian someday

Cool. I’m classified staff myself (cataloging; some places have an MLIS person doing this but we don’t happen to - I won’t bore you with the occasional wailing on cataloging listservs about “the decline of the value of a professional”) and while I’ve sometimes dinked around with the idea of getting an MLIS, for one it is SO EXPENSIVE OMAGAWD and two, I am not sure that I want to get involved with a) faculty politics in my campus/district and b) argh, having to do reference service and talk to people. Leave me in the back office with my metadata and tattle-tape, that’s where I’m best used. Well, and three, I’m not sure I have enough give-a-damn - I don’t have any specific topic I’m interested in enough to make it a thesis.

what the fuck is “artisan” water

Artesian springs are what happens when the aquifer is under pressure and there’s a hole, basically. (Likesay if it slopes uphill, and you bore into a spot downhill. The water’s above it so it’s gonna shoot out.) As opposed to like, volcanic springs, or whatever.

When I was at Starbucks, we had “artisan” breakfast sandwiches, which someone would inevitably read as artesian, and all I could imagine was a well with a bunch of sandwiches coming up, and it was basically the best idea ever, except real life sadly lacks a sandwich aquifer.

Messier 6 and Comet Siding Spring. Explanation: This looks like a near miss but the greenish coma and tail of Comet Siding Spring (C/2013 A1) are really 2,000 light-years or so away from the stars of open cluster Messier 6. They do appear close together though, along the same line-of-sight in this gorgeous October 9th skyscape toward the constellation Scorpius. Still, on Sunday, October 19th this comet really will be involved in a near miss, passing within only 139,500 kilometers of planet Mars. That’s about 10 times closer than any known comet flyby of planet Earth, and nearly one third the Earth-Moon distance. While an impact with the nucleus is not a threat the comet’s dust, moving with a speed of about 56 kilometers per second relative to the Red Planet, and outskirts of its gaseous coma could interact with the thin Martian atmosphere. Of course, the comet’s close encounter will be followed intently by spacecraft in Martian orbit and rovers on the surface. #apod #astronomy

I wonder how they cooked this up, because according to this, as an ISTJ I should be Slytherin Slytherin, which. Like. Nuh-uh. I’m totally actually either Ravenclaw Hufflepuff, or… hey, there’s no Ravenclaw Ravenclaw on this chart! (some other combinations aren’t represented either. yes, I actually sorted them all together to verify what was there and what wasn’t. I dun told you, Ravenclaw Ravenclaw.)

Well anyway, I am really not an INFJ (Ravenclaw Hufflepuff). And apparently if you’re -STJ it doesn’t matter if you’re I or E, we’re all serpents?

This is so on point it’s embarrassing

Virgo should be “painstakingly pokes a pin through a pattern 100000 times to transfer it to the pumpkin, then discovers available tools and general skill are not up to the task, and turns it into a traditional jack o’lantern anyway”.

Not that I speak from experience.
