This seemed like a good idea at the time...

Ask me anything   My blog is A LOT of Sylvester McCoy. Like seriously, if you don't love him you're gonna get sick of me. Also some Yoga here some Bettie Page there. A dash of Bob Dylan and a bit of mental health/depression postings. And cats. And feminism. And stupid things that make me laugh.

I love my antidepressant, it’s been super fucking helpful. But sometimes they have weird side effects.

Like mine gives me insane night sweats. Pretty sure I’m just gonna sleep naked now, because to hell with drenching my PJs in sweat.

The for-profit corporations trying to deny employees birth control coverage because of religious beliefs are basing their objection on the (wrong) idea that emergency contraception is abortion. Here’s a fact check, one more time: emergency contraception is a form of birth control. It’s not abortion.The fact that these corporations don’t understand birth control is just more proof of this simple fact: We need to leave medical decisions between a woman and her doctor, not her boss.

"In 1772, nitrous oxide was discovered. Rather than being utilized as an anesthetic drug, it was inhaled at social parties to produce euphoria and was commonly known as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide was not recognized as an inhaled drug that could produce general anesthesia until the 1860s."

-my pharmacology textbook

It’s good to know they spent nearly 100 years getting high off it before they realized it’d useful for something else.

Peter Capaldi still thinks he was just playing “actor cast as Doctor Who” for an odd special. No one’s informed him he actually has the job.

10 Poverty Myths, Busted | Mother Jones →

america-wakiewakie:

1. Single moms are the problem. Only 9 percent of low-income, urban moms have been single throughout their child’s first five years. Thirty-five percent were married to, or in a relationship with, the child’s father for that entire time.

2. Absent dads are the problem. Sixty percent of low-income dads see at least one of their children daily. Another 16 percent see their children weekly.

3. Black dads are the problem. Among men who don’t live with their children, black fathers are more likely than white or Hispanic dads to have a daily presence in their kids’ lives.

4. Poor people are lazy. In 2004, there was at least one adult with a job in 60 percent of families on food stamps that had both kids and a nondisabled, working-age adult.

5. If you’re not officially poor, you’re doing okay. The federal poverty line for a family of two parents and two children in 2012 was $23,283. Basic needs cost at least twice that in 615 of America’s cities and regions.

6. Go to college, get out of poverty. In 2012, about 1.1 million people who made less than $25,000 a year, worked full time, and were heads of household had a bachelor’s degree.

7. We’re winning the war on poverty. The number of households with children living on less than $2 a day per person has grown 160 percent since 1996, to 1.65 million families in 2011.

8. The days of old ladies eating cat food are over. The share of elderly single women living in extreme poverty jumped 31 percent from 2011 to 2012.

9. The homeless are drunk street people. One in 45 kids in the United States experiences homelessness each year. In New York City alone, 22,000 children are homeless.

10. Handouts are bankrupting us. In 2012, total welfare funding was 0.47 percent of the federal budget.
