Just before 2 pm EDT, the New York City Police Department called via Twitter for photos of citizens with its officers. Almost immediately the campaign #myNYPD seemed to backfire, as users flooded the hashtag with photos decrying alleged police brutality.
I don’t know who the hell thought this would be a good idea for the NYPD.
man, talk about a social media campaign backfiring spectacularly
it’s a metaphor you see. you put the killing thing in your hands, but you don’t give it the power to kill you.
Can you find the hidden mother?
In the 1800s it was very common for mothers to be covered in fabric during children’s portraits to hold the children and keep them comforted.
That’s kindof adorable<3
I’ve recently been informed that half of these children are DEAD

I could have used this information over the last 29 years of my god damn life
My mom taught me to pack like this and she gets mad when I come to visit and sees that I don’t use it.
I need to remember this for uniforms.
Oh my god, I am learning this ASAP. HOW DID I NOT KNOW OF THIS BEFORE?!
"One of the major problems we face as doctors is the sheer amount of blood," said Suzanne Thurgood, Publicity Director for the Medical Board. "We get so much blood all over our floors and jeans and copper magnet bracelets — it becomes nearly untenable."
Thurgood added that the best thing to do if you are unable to stop bleeding is to first take a few breaths. Calm yourself. This should help you concentrate on not bleeding. Then, once you have finished bleeding, come to a doctor’s office.
"It’s not a matter of medical training," Thurgood said. "It’s simply a matter of respecting other people."
Thurgood then lit a cigarette and placed it expertly into the mouth of a low-flying hawk. As the bird flew away, a distant clock tower chimed the quarter hour, and a gentle rain began to fall.
ok so suzanne thurgood is my secret favorite character even though she’s only shown up in one episode. it’s just…as someone who works in a hospital, I think a lot about what the emergency room scene must be like in night vale.
Ai Weiwei, “Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn,” 1995
An astonishingly irreverent piece of work. This triptych features the artist dropping a Han Dynasty (206 BC - 220 AD) in three photographs.
When questioned about the work, he suggested that the piece was about industry: “[The urn] was industry then and is industry now.” His statement, therefore, was that the urn was just a cheap pot two thousand years ago, and the reverence we feel toward it is artificial. One critic wrote: “In other words, for all the aura of preciousness acquired by the accretion of time (and skillful marketing), this vessel is the Iron Age equivalent of a flower pot from K-Mart and if one were to smash the latter a few millennia from now, would it be an occasion for tears?”
However, the not-so-subtle political undertone is clear. This piece was about destroying the notion that everything that is old is good…including the traditions and cultures of China. For Ai Weiwei, this triptych represents a moment in which culture suddenly shifts (sometimes violently), shattering the old and outdated to make room for the new.

Odin and Loki on Jane.
Isn’t it interesting that Odin says, in effect, “don’t attach yourself to humans because their mortality makes them unworthy” while Loki says “don’t attach yourself to humans because their mortality will cause you pain”.
