I still love the timing on this clip.
Apparently Ethiopian Baboons are starting to domesticate wolves, which is giving scientists new insights about what it might have been like when early humans did that. That’s cool pretty cool!
“not quite as cool as we thought!” scream scientists, as baboons riding wolves come pouring out of the forest
Look fam I’m queer and if I was running for president even I would skip both LGBT debates because I have a better use for my sanity. Make your policies clear through action - as he has - and you don’t need to “debate” anything with anyone, especially not in the format expected of election-related nonsense, in which all you have to do to convince most of the people present is just SOUND like you’re winning.
It’s 2016 all over again.
People posting and reblogging posts misconstruing small events in order to persuade people away from supporting good democratic candidates? Why does that sound familiar?
For anyone that thinks Bernie Sanders wouldn’t be the biggest LGBTQ advocate to EVER be elected to the office of the president

that moment in the podcast alice isn’t dead where the narrator talks about how love is making pizza with her wife. that scene changed me
“I’ve been thinking lately of our pizza nights. Dough from scratch, sauce from scratch, cheese from… well, from the store. Not going that far. I loved the making of bread, the dough for the crust. Flour and water in your hands, first separate and then merging into a silky whole. The yeast and gluten making it a living thing. It moves when you poke it. It breathes into your hands. Our hands covered in flour, we open a bottle of wine, and we eat the pizza we made, and… we just watch whatever’s on TV and fall asleep in a wine and bread coma. I think love is cooking together. I think it’s making something with each other, that’s what I think, Alice.”

☢ Wastelanders are baffled by the Pre-War concept of “soaking in a bath”. Any clean, non-contaminated water is obviously used for drinking and cooking. And laying in radiation-contaminated water is wasteful and dangerous. Bucket baths are the standard.
☢ On the Strip, using clean water for baths is a sign of wealth and is very common (see: Ultra Luxe bath house). The Courier, a wastelander, is understandably pissed to learn about this wastefulness.
☢ As a rule, any coffee is instant mix made before the Great War. It’s still fairly popular, particularly in the Strip. Scavenged coffee beans are rare, ancient, and make a terrible drink. Even so, they are highly valued by some collectors. Tea has made a big comeback, and is spiced with local plants and herbs.
☢ “Johnny Guitar”, “Big Iron”, and “Jingle, Jangle, Jingle” hold as much meme potential in-universe as they do with the fans. Anyone who likes Johnny Guitar is ragged on by their friends.
I’ve been sick all week. Stayed home the last two days. I don’t wanna say streams this weekend are cancelled, but. There might be a lot of coughing.
