    I’ve seen this video posted a few times over the past couple days and I avoided watching it until last night. Holy crap! I can’t believe these are the kinds of things said on Fox News. Truly unbelievable.

YOU’VE CROSSED THE LINE TURKISH POLICE! (Protesters flushing out a dogs eyes after it becomes a victim of tear gas)

There are several things wrong with this declarative statement in that they crossed the line when people started getting injured or KILLED. What is wrong with you?

It’s hard to create tone through text, so I apologize as it was meant as a joke. I am very much upset by the things that are happening in Turkey right now, because I believe every person in the world deserves personal freedom. While most images coming out of Turkey are the result of violence, caused by the ugly side of humanity, this image shows a much better side. Compassion for an animal caught up in the madness. It warms my heart. For those who are unaware, the people of Turkey are revolting against a leader who has recently banned alcohol, as well as public displays of affection. These are people just like you and I, and I wish nothing but the best for them in this chaotic time.Also, there have been no confirmed deaths, but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been, or that there won’t eventually be.

    Antalya - Civil protests turned into chaos after violent police intervention in Calli province of Antalya few hours ago. Photos require no comment, the chaos is unbelievable.

    There are massive protests happening in Turkey right now to overthrow the Islamist government, and this is the front page of CNN.

    Patton Oswalt on the bombings in Boston.

    Boston. Fucking horrible. 


    I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, “Well, I’ve had it with humanity.”

    But I was wrong. I don’t know what’s going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths. 

    But here’s what I DO know. If it’s one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we’re lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they’re pointed towards darkness. 

    But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We’d have eaten ourselves alive long ago. 

    So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, “The good outnumber you, and we always will.”

    "When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers — so many caring people in this world."

    My friend and super dude Aaron Jackson is the man behind this and I am so stoked about it. If you can spare $5-10, head on over to my team page on Crowdrise and help take a stance against a bunch of sad, angry little butt babies.  View high resolution

    Ric Kaner set out to find a new way to make graphene, the thinnest and strongest material on earth. What he found was a new way to power the world.

    This is the best accident since Corn Flakes!

    I try to keep my tumblr as light hearted as possible, but once in a while I feel compelled to share things of a heavier caliber. I’m very lucky to have a relatively safe and happy life, and it’s easy to lose perspective.

    Watch this video (from 1:45) that came out of Daraya, Syria yesterday and try your hardest to place as much value in the life of the cameraman as you do your own. There’s no gore, death, etc, but this is still one of the most terrifying and shocking things I’ve ever seen.

    It’s inspiring to see such a skilled and imaginative person put their mind to something like this. Brilliant. 

    An Israeli inventor has come up with a way to make a bicycle almost entirely out of cardboard — and so inexpensively that he thinks retailers would only need to charge about $20 for one.

    Syrian rebels go to grab their weapons after hearing a tank is nearby, only to be killed by that tank seconds later. 

    What an intense, and deeply saddening photo. I recommend seeing the entire series. It took me a while to completely digest them. 

    Big props to Tracey Shelton for putting her life on the line to let the world know what is really happening in Syria.
