"White People: I don't want you to understand me better; I want you to understand yourselves. Your survival has never depended on your knowledge of white culture. In fact, it’s required your ignorance."
“Researchers at MIT warn that if #ClimateChange remains unchecked (Business As Usual-scenario = RCP 8.5) over half a billion people will, from 2070 onwards, experience humid heat waves that will kill even healthy people in the shade within 6 hours. The Wet Bulb Temperature (WBT) would exceed 35°C (95°F), at which the body – of any mammal – cannot cool itself, overheats and shuts down.”
uspol, Middle East policy, death
The shit the US military is doing in the middle east aren't "wars". They're invasions & occupations & I refuse to call them anything else.
"Wars" implies the citizens of the countries we're attacking are able to fight back.
The US military isn't fighting terrorists. They're tracking the few people who *are* willing to fighting back against the occupational forces & then doing public executions to stoke fear in the survivors of the wedding & hospital bombings.

“Surveillance video showed the officers later dropping Chambers off, and a rape kit found semen matching the DNA of detectives Eddie Martins and Richard Hall. The officers resigned from the NYPD, and in October 2017, they were charged with 43 crimes, including rape and kidnapping.
But on Wednesday, those charges were dropped, and Martins and Hall will face trial only for taking bribes and official misconduct — counts that don’t relate to what Chambers, now 20, said she experienced.”
“Rape charges were dropped Wednesday against two former #NYPD officers accused of assaulting an 18-year-old woman in the back of a police van.”
“Letterboxing is currently available in #Firefox Nightly.
The feature isn't enabled by default, though. Firefox users will first need to visit the about:config page, enter "privacy.resistFingerprinting" in the search box, and toggle the browser's anti-fingerprinting features to "true."”
“#Mozilla is scheduled to add a new user anti-fingerprinting technique to Firefox version 67, scheduled for mid-May.
Called "letterboxing," this new technique adds "gray spaces" to the sides of a web page when the user resizes the browser window, which are then gradually removed after the window resize operation has finished.
Letterboxing was originally developed for the #Tor Browser four years ago, in January 2015.”
