On July 23, 2012, two giant plasma clouds, known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs) erupted from the sun creating an epic solar storm. As luck would have it, the CMEs weren’t directed at the Earth, but if it had happened one week earlier the point of eruption would have been Earth-facing and would have resulted in trillions of dollars of damage to the planet, mostly due to the widespread blackouts, damage to satellites and general interruption of and damage to various electrical systems on Earth.
sorry if I’m off topic but I’m so sick of people characterizing violent crime as “musta been mental illness” it throws us mentally ill people under the bus by perpetuating the stereotype that we’re dangerous
cant we just say there was something going on with that one guy?
ur totally right, many men don’t react violently when faced with rejection.
it was only this one guy.
it’s the year of our lord 2014 and we’re still pretending men reacting violently to women rejecting their advances isn’t the norm. it may not always be as out-right as a stabbing but the times random, strange men have called me a bitch/ugly cunt/other innumerable names for telling them to fuck off when they catcall or get in my physical space could probably fill a whole day in minutes.
I get tired of telling men this: just because it wasn’t you who did it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. This is just sad.
What I love most about this is that this person was SO INCENSED at the recipient that they couldn’t even wait the days/weeks it would take for the mail to go through. No, they had to say “FUCK YOU” as soon as fucking possible and, AND, let the recipient that they were not done with the fuck you, nay, this was merely the first volley in what would undoubtably be a dressing down of Biblical proportions.
"A new study shows that men are threatened by confident women taking pictures of themselves, and call these women stupid, socially inept, and ugly. In other news, the world is round, the sky is blue, and the patriarchy is still shitty."
