I'm a bonefied archaeology student. Usually stuck working the bare bones, but I do often find my studies humerus. But don't worry, after all this hard work I'm really going tibia ok. If you have any questions socket to me.

THE ONGOING SAGA OF THE FRAGILE WHITE

The Daily Show aired its long awaited segment on the Washington, D.C., NFL team name, in which fans were confronted by Natives on the set.
Before it even aired, the segment proved controversial. The satirical cable television news program had recruited team fans for the segment via Twitter; four were ultimately chosen to participate. But those participants told the Washington Post they felt like they were attacked.
Kelli O’Dell, who says it was unfair for The Daily Show to have her debate Amanda Blackhorse—the lead plaintiff in Blackhorse v. Pro-Football, Inc., which resulted in cancelling six of the team’s trademarks—says she felt like she was placed “in danger.” O’Dell later called authorities to pull The Daily Show tapes she had consented to appear on:

Two days later, O’Dell said she called D.C. police and tried to submit a police report, but authorities told her no crime had been committed.


People want their right to be racist. But the minute they approach facing real life consequences—and mild ones, given what they should expect for years of violence and slurs—look how they shake and cry. Look how they flee and fly to the po-lice, understanding fully the institutional role played by cops.

Ancient Roman marble relief panel depicting a winged penis, 1st century AD.

This is definitely old and definitely a winged wang with a wang and another wang, but… not sure it’s Roman. That looks a lot like some Greek letters up top.
Impressed by the level of detail on the foreskin.

“Vikings have always been portrayed as very heinous people and I love (Michael Hirst’s) approach on it. It made them family people and really gave them reasons as to why they do what they do. I wanted to be a part of something that sort of proves the myth wrong and proves their reputation wrong.”

Three 16 Year Old Girls Win Top Prize At Google Science Fair For Agricultural Research
“The Grand Prize went to a team of three 16-year-old girls from Ireland: Ciara Judge, Émer Hickey, and Sophie Healy-Thow. Their project, “Combating The Global Food Crisis: Diazotroph Bacteria As A Cereal Crop Growth Promoter,” explored different bacterial strains that could shorten the germination time of cereal crops like oats and barley. Growing food is becoming monumentally important, as climate change threatens food crops, and the increasing global population is becoming incredibly demanding.”
