I had the pleasure of seeing a lecture by him in undergrad. He told this story there and it was one of those lightbulb moments for me.
So next time you’re in a situation where you are recording an officer and fear for the safety of your video evidence, try using the Bambuser app.
It uploads your video online to your Bambuser account while you record it. You can also stream the video live. This way your videos are saved online, safe from the hands of the uniformed pigs.
what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?
It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870
I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.
I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question
Sam Basso, “Anger Has No Place In Dog Training”.
There’s an old thread on the WDF that asked people to share their biggest dog training mistake; I’ve had Skip Morgart’s response taped to my dresser mirror for years now.
Anytime that I was angry while training…either times when I was angry during the day right before training, or when I stupidly let myself get angry while training. It is not beneficial to train that way.
Anger and ego need to stay out of dog training and away from dogs in general. Even when playing- my roommate’s dog, DJ, nailed me a couple of months ago when we were at the river playing fetch. He got wound up and jumped to grab the stick and caught my hand instead… HARD and deep enough that I still have the scars on both sides of my hand.
I was actually surprised at how angry I felt. And it wasn’t even an intentional bite (although if it were, I’m not sure there wouldn’t have been a come-to-jesus meeting). As it were, I (while admittedly swearing profusely) ended the game and walked away from him until I was calmed down enough to go back and get him. Now I’m going to work on self-control exercises with him whenever I take him out.
Anger has no place in any animal training. That’s why, when I’m getting frustrated or angry with my dog or my horse I just… Walk away. Finish up on a behaviour the animal knows well and just wrap it up. Getting angry is going to end up with you either bitten, kicked or scratched. Or with a terrified training partner.
I always roll my eyes when people get upset if they hear the figures portrayed in modeling photoshoots and catalogue ads referred to as “fake” because, yes, what you are seeing in magazines is fake. Barring the fact that the styling alone usually involves a lot of heavy duty work done by an entire team of professionals who have each put countless hours into specializing in their field to create looks that are completely unsustainable if you intended to leave the house and go about an average day, and the fact that the clothes are often draped on the figures in ways that look great from only one angle and ridiculous from every other
The models are then photoshopped to hell to remove all the pores and fine lines and completely change the dimensions of their bodies and skew their proportions to elongate their skeleton in ways that no healthy human is actually shaped, but can appear compositionally pleasing in that single still image with the specific pose they’re striking. The bodies are so drastically altered you get cases like this model
who in reality was fired by Ralph Lauren because they considered her real body too heavyset for their brand.
The people you see in magazines are fake. The people who are literally in those photos do not even look like the people in those photos. I promise you the imaginary poreless, unblemished, elongated mannequin people who have been artfully crafted out of photos of real humans do not get their feelings hurt if you call them “fake”.

1:23 AM: We literally laid in someone’s backyard for what seemed like an eternity while tanks rolled down the streets #Ferguson
1:26 AM: I’m live tweeting because there’s a media blackout. #Ferguson
1:33 AM: I’m so shaken. They’re literally just rolling around throwing tear gas into neighborhoods-not aggressive crowds. #Ferguson
1:34 AM: I was pouring milk over one guys eyes when they came back around and threw another at us. #Ferguson
1:51 AM: Let me repeat, THEY ARE GASSING NEIGHBORHOODS not crowds of protestors.There was only a few of us walking. there is no curfew, so why?]
people literally cannot get out antonio french is telling him to knock on doors if he has to
police/military have placed a physical road blockade, a media blackout, and a nofly zone, over the neighborhood where mike brown was murdered were the only eye witnesses live, at the heart of the protests, under the guise of stopping a “gun battle btwn cops and gangs”. there is nothing come out of canfield right now that i can find, which is absolutely terrifying.
there are drones over ferguson. there are DRONES over ferguson.
My mom’s take on what’s going on in Ferguson (via actualbanshee)
Your mom isn’t wrong. That’s why it’s so important to keep the signal going. Too many are silenced with lies and fear and if they cannot speak then we have to do it for them.
