When you need to stop an asteroid, you get Superman. When you need to solve a mystery, you call Batman. But when you need to end a war, you get Wonder Woman.

11 ways to solve rape better than nail polish

The more we depend on women to prevent rape, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Here’s a look at the well-documented ways we can actually stop rape. Maybe it’s time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing them before we send gallons of nail polish to colleges across the country.

“Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best,” and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called.” 
― A.A. Milne

Important, always-relevant comic done by the wonderful Ursa Eyer.

This scares me, the girl at 4 is basically a cartoon of my 5 year old, who is constantly told how adorable she is.

White People are disgusting.

None of this is even remotely funny

Props to this woman for running to the child’s defense without even stopping to think for a moment. The way she puts her head in her hands as if she’s ashamed to have made a “mistake” is pretty unnerving. This guy gave her every reason to think that the child was about to be sexually harassed.

Fucking EXACTLY.
I’ve seen this gif way too many times without commentary and it’s frustrating.
If a man ran up to kids in a bathrobe I’d push his nasty ass away, too.

How is that a funny joke????

She’s a hero, he’s a dick, and honestly, playing on others’ potential trauma for fun AND to make others feel stupid for reacting is indefensible.

I can’t wait for some dude to try a stunt like this around someone with a conceal carry, or martial arts training. Because frankly, they’re gonna hit him with more than a purse.

(I would have gone for the kidneys, personally, but that’s cause I fight to win.)

Honestly, as a mother, this guy wouldn’t have even made it onto the sand. Some freak in a bathrobe, at the park, hanging out near the kid’s area obviously without a kid? Not cool. I don’t care if this is a prank. It is still sick and twisted. If I didn’t feel comfortable confronting him personally, the cops would have been called.

Radio and television broadcasting may be only a brief passing phase in our technological development. When we imagine alien civilizations broadcasting signals with radio telescopes, are we any different from earlier generations who imagined riding cannon shells to the moon? Civilizations even slightly more advanced than ours may have already moved on to some other mode of communication, one that we have yet to discover or even imagine. Their messages could be swirling all around us at this very moment, but we lack the means to perceive them just as all of our ancestors, up to a little more than a century ago, would have been oblivious to the most urgent radio signal from another world. 

But there’s another more troubling possibility: Civilizations, like other living things, may only live so long before perishing due to natural causes, or violence, or self-inflicted wounds. Whether or not we ever make contact with intelligent alien life may depend on a critical question: What is the life expectancy of a civilization?

India replaces the Ice Bucket Challenge with the much more sustainable Rice Bucket Challenge 

After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”

It’s fairly simpleFollow micdotcom
