A man is 631 times more likely to become an NFL player than to be falsely accused of rape.

"We end on a serious note. Because 1 in 33 men will be raped in his lifetime, men are 82,000x more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. It seems many of us would do well to pay more attention to how rape culture affects us all than be paranoid about false accusers.”

that last paragraph

Holy shit. 

Well.

:(

Great list, and a much needed article. It’s just incredible (and incredibly depressing) how prevalent sexual assault is.

Lawful Neutral 

Based on your answers to the quiz, your character’s most likely alignment is Lawful Good.

And nobody was surprised at all.

Neutral

Lawful Neutral

True neutral

Lawful neutral. I find it rather comforting that none of you ^^ are evil or even chaotic in alignment.

Chaotic Good, which doesn’t surprise me in the slightest.

(Vaguely amused at being Chaotic after Matthew’s statement, oops)

Neutral Good.  Hmm, I definitely would have expected Chaotic.

Chaotic Evil. I’ve never played a character that wasn’t.

It makes for fun times with an otherwise Neutral Good party.

Chaotic Neutral.

My favorite alignment to play. :D

Lawful good?! I’m so boooooring!

I bet it was close to chaotic. I wanna be chaotic good.

…I’m too scared to be chaotic good though. ._.

… True Neutral? Really? Really?

I’m as Neutral Good as a person can get without being Captain fucking America. What the hell.

Neutral Good. Huh. I was expecting Lawful Neutral, go figure.

Lawful good? Boring…I always thought of myself as Chaotic Good. I can be a little “wacky” sometimes. 

Then again, I have an unwavering sense of justice, so that probably played a huge part. 

True neutral. Heh. I thought she’d be more chaotic… Always a surprise

Why you should back LA Game Space’s Kickstarter, explained by Maré Odomo’s wonderful animated comic.

Look at Tiny’s huge muscles! We totally didn’t know he’d pop up in this comic — he just showed up on our dashboard, pumping iron and showing off his guns!

And Pushmo’s Malo partnering with Katamari Damacy’s Prince? Dreams come true in Maré’s comics.

Yes, lets imagine a world WITHOUT MUSLIMS, shall we?

Without Muslims you wouldn’t have:

  • Coffee
  • Cameras

  • Experimental Physics

  • Chess

  • Soap

  • Shampoo

  • Perfume/spirits

  • Irrigation

  • Crank-shaft, internal combustion engine, valves, pistons

  • Combination locks

  • Architectural innovation (pointed arch -European Gothic cathedrals adopted this technique as it made the building much stronger, rose windows, dome buildings, round towers, etc.)

  • Surgical instruments

  • Anesthesia

  • Windmill

  • Treatment of Cowpox

  • Fountain pen

  • Numbering system

  • Algebra/Trigonometry

  • Modern Cryptology

  • 3 course meal (soup, meat/fish, fruit/nuts)

  • Crystal glasses

  • Carpets

  • Checks

  • Gardens used for beauty and meditation instead of for herbs and kitchen.

  • University
  • Optics
  • Music
  • Toothbrush
  • Hospitals
  • Bathing
  • Quilting
  • Mariner’s Compass
  • Soft drinks
  • Pendulum
  • Braille
  • Cosmetics
  • Plastic surgery
  • Calligraphy
  • Manufacturing of paper and cloth

It was a Muslim who realized that light ENTERS our eyes, unlike the Greeks who thought we EMITTED rays, and so invented a camera from this discovery.

It was a Muslim who first tried to FLY in 852, even though it is the Wright Brothers who have taken the credit.

It was a Muslim by the name of Jabir ibn Hayyan who was known as the founder of modern Chemistry. He transformed alchemy into chemistry. He invented: distillation, purification, oxidation, evaporation, and filtration. He also discovered sulfuric and nitric acid.

It is a Muslim, by the name of Al-Jazari who is known as the father of robotics.

It was a Muslim who was the architect for Henry V’s castle.

It was a Muslim who invented hollow needles to suck cataracts from eyes, a technique still used today.

It was a Muslim who actually discovered inoculation, not Jenner and Pasteur to treat cowpox. The West just brought it over from Turkey

It was Muslims who contributed much to mathematics like Algebra and Trigonometry, which was imported over to Europe 300 years later to Fibonnaci and the rest.

It was Muslims who discovered that the Earth was round 500 years before Galileo did.

The list goes on………..

Just imagine a world without Muslims. Now I think you probably meant, JUST IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT TERRORISTS. And then I would agree, the world would definitely be a better place without those pieces of filth. But to hold a whole group responsible for the actions of a few is ignorant and racist. No one would ever expect Christians or White people to be held responsible for the acts of Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma bombing) or Andreas Brevik (Norway killing), or the gun man that shot Congresswoman Giffords in head, wounded 12 and killed 6 people, and rightly so because they had nothing to do with those incidents! Just like the rest of the 1.5 billion Muslims have nothing to do with this incident!
