Facebook has a policy against breastfeeding photos on their site. However, they are totally cool with gun owners selling guns without background checks to anyone who wants to make a deal. Facebook also recently launched the Look Back video feature, which many of you may have seen. So an organization made an amazing little Look Back video about how the gun market works on the world’s largest social media network. Let’s help Facebook get their priorities in check.
Jesus, I think we all need to get our priorities in check.
Russia’s anti-gay laws have been a major focus in the lead-up to the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, and during his address at today’s opening ceremony IOC president Thomas Bach made a strong statement against “any form of discrimination” and in favor of tolerance. Viewers worldwide heard the statement; NBC viewers in the U.S. did not, because the network edited it out.
What the fuck Kool-Aid are those fuckers at NBC drinking? Does it taste like Vladimir Putin’s Soviet-era piss?

Well that’s fucking depressing.
Which just makes this all the worse.
That seals it. We are officially fucked with a capital F. Thanks, money.

I love where I work.
This is Alex. He’s a 7 year old Chihuahua mix that my parents adopted 4 years ago. His picture was in the in the newspaper one week, as a dog available for adoption from the Huntington Humane Society in PA. He’d only been in the shelter for about a month, and they didn’t know much about his background, but my dad decided to take him home anyway.
He was really shy and didn’t seem to understand petting for while, but got used to it when he realized it was a good thing. It also took him a little bit to not be too nervous around the two dogs we already had, but they learned to get along well once the initial excitement of a new dog passed.
After only a week of having him, he had a seizure. And a week later, he had another. It turned out that he had canine epilepsy. The shelter either didn’t know or hadn’t told us, but after having him for two weeks we decided that we couldn’t give him up just because he needed a little more help.
He’s going to need the two medications he was put on (after a little trial/error/weight gain/etc.) for the rest of his life, but just because he might cost a little more than another dog doesn’t mean he shouldn’t have a home that can take care of him, too. I’m not sure who gave him up after 3 years, but they missed out on a great little dog.
Never, ever give up on your dog. That’s how you’re measured by the universe.

LeeAnn reallllllllly wants a print of this for Xmas, fyi.
Happy Birthday, Jim. We still miss you.
Thank you so much for everything. As I sit here, waiting for my first son to arrive, I think of all the joy you brought me when I was small. Then I think of that same joy you will be bringing to him, and I realize that you never really left us.

My relationship with Buffalo can be described as an unplanned love affair.
I never meant to fall for the place - but I did. And I fell hard.
I moved here for college, less than thrilled. My top choice school in Boston had accepted me but I couldn’t afford…
Some lovely lessons from the city that I,too, fell in love with nearly fourteen years ago.
The NSA seal is protected by Public Law 86-36, which states that it is not permitted for “…any person to use the initials ‘NSA,’ the words ‘National Security Agency’ and the NSA seal without first acquiring written permission from the Director of NSA.” At any time that NSA is made aware that the NSA Seal is being used without our permission, we will take appropriate actions.
Oh, go fuck yourselves, G-men. I mean really. What sort of country are you actually trying to protect? Cock. Balls. Bomb. Government. Sucky sucky.
I love this image.
Hey Dan, why do you love dogs so much?

The NYT reports that the Olympics may kick gay athletes out of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia if they don’t obey Russia’s anti-gay laws.
What the everlasting fuck
Fuck it. Everybody, including competing athletes, should boycott the games. Nobody should be forced to comply with laws designed specifically to oppress a group of people based on race, creed, culture, religion or sexual identity. Fuck the IOC, and fuck Russia.
