Dreamworks is doing something even Pixar hasn’t tried: A black female heroine

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.

Elaborately Jeweled Skeletons

In 1578, a series of underground burial sites were discovered in Rome that contained the remains of thousands of individuals assumed to be early Christian martyrs. However, most of their identities were unknown. The bones were disinterred and sent to churches around Europe to replace holy relics that had been destroyed during the Reformation.

The receiving churches spent years covering the revered skeletal remains with elaborate costumes encrusted with gold and precious gems. For nearly three hundred years, these relics were worshiped as saints and protectors of their communities. When questions and doubts about their authenticity arised in the modern era, the jewel-covered saints became a source of embarrassment and many were either hidden away or destroyed.

In a new book due out October 8, 2013 titled Heavenly Bodies: Cult Treasures & Spectacular Saints from the Catacombs, author Paul Koudounaris covers their long and misunderstood history. The book includes images of more than seventy jeweled skeletons and stories of dozens more.

that’s not how your colon works

i was at jewel today and there was a magazine that claimed some new diet called the “colorado soup diet: lose 9lbs in 4 days” and was like um thats unhealthy as hell so i flipped through it and found the diet.

it was literally soup with rice seasoned with every indian spice you can imagine: cumin, coriander, mustard seeds, turmeric, ginger-garlic, red chili powder etc.

you’re supposed to eat that every time you get hungry, and i thought how do you lose 9lbs with this?

then i realized that these white women must be getting diarrhea 

ah yes, the moment when you discover that “cleanse” actually means “exorbitant money/effort in order to shit yourself inside-out”

I laugh, and yet at the same time I feel really concerned for all these foolish women. Dehydration can really mess you up if it goes on too long. These stupid diets could kill somebody. It’s ridiculous that these magazines see no problem with printing them. 

Yeah, this right here? This is pure, unalloyed, 24-karat bullshit. 

I’ll do a post later on how your colon actually works and what it’s for and why “toxins” as discussed by this type of woo merchant are the equivalent of eighteenth-century evil spirits, but for now?

We’d like to give you more helpful tips for the cleanse described in the Women’s world article and let you know about our other natural health offerings that can help you be your lightest, most energetic, clear and vibrant self!

And by “lightest” they mean “minus whatever the net weight of the contents of your lower intestine were.” Note that they immediately slide into Flogging the Merchandise Mode.

“Colorado Diet Soup” is based on LifeSpa’s Short Home Cleanse, a cleanse I have been recommending for many years now and one that my patients love. 

I bet they do. 

Your Supplies: Upgrade your Benefits with Herbs! These are the 3 herbal formulas that will increase the effectiveness of your cleanse, plus easy-to-prepare cleansing food, and ghee that will make up your special cleansing diet and protocols during your Short Home Cleanse. Everything you need for this cleanse is available in our Short Home Cleanse Complete Kit. 

Which retails on sale for $109.95.

The gent in charge of this going concern is not an MD, you will note. He is a DC, which means doctor of chiropractic, which in and of itself is enough to make the wise seeker-of-health nope the fuck out of there at top noping speed. After extolling the virtues of his Short Home Cleanse, which of course is just a leetle better for you than the one in the magazine which didn’t require you to buy kits, he goes on to suggest that if you’re really serious about your health you might be a candidate for the Next Level:

This Colorado Cleanse is [sic] two-week cleanse that resets the body’s natural digestive strength and ability to detoxify.

Citation needed on ‘resets,’ ‘natural digestive strength [definition needed as well],’ and ‘detoxify.’  

During the 2 weeks of the Colorado Cleanse, you will do a daily practice of yoga, meditation, and breathing exercises, 12 minutes of aerobic exercise, take Ayurvedic herbal formulas that support the detox process, and eat a special kitchari cleanse diet during one of the three phases of the cleanse.

You will do some mild exercise and relaxation techniques, which are probably vaguely good for you, but you will combine them with ingesting substances that have never had to pass any sort of federal quality/safety check and are not based on any physiological evidence so much as a particular belief system. And you will shit your brains out.

Twice a year, in the transitional seasons of spring and fall, LifeSpa hosts an online cleansing event during which hundreds of cleansers from around the world come together to detox at the same time

The mind boggles. One really, really does not wish to picture this coming-together, at least not from the point of view of the poor wretches who have to clean the toilets during this event.

while supporting each other and receiving step-by-step email and webinar guidance from John Douillard. 

"Buy more things from me!"

This sort of racket just…depresses me at the same time as it makes me fiercely angry. These people are throwing away perfectly good money on what is the equivalent of an America’s Next Top Model ex-lax session only with some woo and herbs thrown in. And as has been mentioned upthread, shitting your brains out is associated with dehydration, which is an actual physiological condition that can actually harm you, unlike Douillard’s magic ‘toxins.’

Just…I do so wish people would stop and think before paying quacks to do generally useless and potentially dangerous things to themselves. 

and on top of all that… shitting yourself inside out doesn’t actually reduce your calorie intake. your body has already absorbed the nutrients by the time it goes through.

their soup probably doesn’t have much in the way of nutrients, which is why you lose weight eating nothing else, but if you’re going to mortify the flesh like a 14th century monk, just do the living on gruel part, don’t give yourself the shits on top of that.

pseudoscience must be stopped

look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to

To the Boys Who May One Day Date My Daughter - Video

I love this so fucking much

Everyone needs to watch the video because it’s so much better than this gif set.

Am I the only person that doesn’t find shit like this endearing? I just find it telling, a symptom of a bigger problem- that dating is this much of a risk that men respond to prospects with threats, and we applaud it. Yaaayy everyone’s a jerk. Like I get that he’s being protective but stuff like this always makes me so uncomfortable.

^Yesss.
I’ve always found attitudes like this somewhat creepy. Like the daughter is the father’s property. 

Honestly, if my dad ever spoke this way to a prospect of mine, I would not be surprised if he just ran the other direction. “Break up with my daughter and I’ll react violently”? Yeah, he must live in a world where heartache is nonexistent, because oh, faces will be bashed in otherwise.

And it also perpetuates this belief that women aren’t resilient. We’re basically weaklings who need the big, strong men to defend our feelings with their fists. My dad comforted me through my first break-up, and saying shit about the guy was not a focal point. 

EXACTLY.

Like your father valued and cared for YOU and so when a guy hurt you emotionally he didn’t take it as “I MUST DEFEND MY MANHOOD BY DEFENDING MY PROGENY” he treated you like a person he cared about and was there for YOU, supported YOU, helped you grow past YOUR issue.

This chest beating “THAT CAME FROM MY BALLS” stuff is just really disconcerting to me, because like you said, it assumes that no dude who dates a daughter should even doing anything other than treating her like an infallible princess because apparently she’s so vulnerable to hurt that daddy’s been training in advance to fight someone over her feelings. Like what the fuck? It’s such an antiquated response to life. People break up, lie, grow apart, whatever.

Hypermasculine posturing is just so gross. YES I understand that he also mentioned that his wife was a good shot but she’s not up there, and that’s not any better. “Hurt my kid’s feelings? I WILL MURDER YOU”.

I get so done with the human race.

"MODERN DAY LYNCHINGS"
Kody (Pretty Boy) Ingham (pictured above) was found hanging from a tree in front of his white girlfriends house on July 15, 2013 (the same night as the George Zimmerman verdict) in Athens, Texas. it was chalked up as a suicide and no investigation ensued, even though two hours prior he called his mother to pick him up from the site he died at. no newspaper article, just a four sentence obituary in the local papers and his family has been trying hard to make any mainstream news channel blow up the story to find the killers.
Roy Veal was found hanging in Woodville, Mississippi in 2004. he originally lived in Seattle and went to his mother’s home in Woodville to help her fight for the rights to their family land against a white man. Oil had been found underneath the land.
Roy’s head was covered with a pillow case and burned papers of the documented proof he had to prove his mothers’ ownership were found burned at his feet. He was later found hanging from a tree. His death was ruled a suicide.
His family is still trying to get attention for the case 
Reynard Johnson, 17, was found hanging from a tree on his front lawn on June 16, 2000 in Kokomo, Mississippi. His death was ruled a suicide even though the belt around his neck was not his. Authorities said since no hate group left a message by the body, there was nothing to investigate. Family members said the motive was his relationship with a white girl, he was constantly being harassed because of this.

……….

booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooost

This stuff still happens guys. Boosting

This is awful. The fact that this still happens is horrifying.
