Dynamo, an English magician, went around London over the weekend, “levitating” next to this bus. He hasn’t revealed how he accomplished this trick.

dude dont forget this guy walked on water

he casually strolled down the side of a building, LEVITATED IN FRONT OF CHRIST THE REDEEMER IN RIO and predicted football scores resulting in a large win on a bet WHICH HE THEN GAVE TO THE TEENAGE CANCER TRUST. Dynamo is amazing.

I’m pretty sure Dynamo is one of those Hogwarts dropout kids who make their way into the world mesmerizing muggles

Am I the only one who sees that weird line in the second picture that goes from his left foot straight down?

  • White people: My Black friend
  • White people: My Black teacher
  • White people: The substitute was Black
  • White people: You heard about the new Black girl?
  • White people: That Black guy
  • White people: The Black one
  • White people: ...
  • White people: Black.
  • Black people: You see this picture of this group of white women yelling at a Black woman in the civil rights era?
  • White people: WHY DO YOU HAVE TO SPECIFY THAT THEY WERE WHITE? YOU DON'T HAVE TO MENTION THEIR RACE. RACE IS NOT IMPORTANT. THERE IS NO REASON TO PUT SOMEONE'S RACE BEFORE TALKING ABOUT THEM. THIS PICTURE OF A GROUP OF RACIST WHITE WOMEN ATTACKING A WOMAN FOR BEING BLACK HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RACE ANYWAY, OKAY?/?/?

“How many Americans do you figure have even heard, for example, that black youth arrested for drug possession for the first time are incarcerated at a rate that is forty-eight times greater than the rate for white youth, even when all other factors surrounding the crime are identical (4)? How many have heard that persons with “white sounding names,” according to a massive national study, are fifty percent more likely to be called back for a job interview than those with “black sounding” names, even when all other credentials are the same (5)? How many know that white men with a criminal record are slightly more likely to be called back for a job interview than black men without one, even when the men are equally qualified, and present themselves to potential employers in an identical fashion (6)? How many have heard that according to the Justice Department, Black and Latino males are three times more likely than white males to have their vehicles stopped and searched by police, even though white males are over four times more likely to have illegal contraband in our cars on the occasions when we are searched (7)? How many are aware that black and Latino students are about half as likely as whites to be placed in advanced or honors classes in school, and twice as likely to be placed in remedial classes? Or that even when test scores and prior performance would justify higher placement, students of color are far less likely to be placed in honors classes (8)? Or that students of color are 2-3 times more likely than whites to be suspended or expelled from school, even though rates of serious school rule infractions do not differ to any significant degree between racial groups (9)?” What Kind of Card is Race - Hot Topics - Danielle Belton’s The Black Snob (via robot-heart-politics)

I really do not want to be approached like a princess. 

Translation: I’m going to use what you are wearing as an excuse to not treat you like a human being.

  • What you say: I'm economically conservative and socially liberal
  • What I hear: Poor people can starve for all I care so long as I have weed.

rationalatheism:

Christians frequently quote anti-homosexual passages from the Bible with complete disregard for the ones in the very same chapters that prohibit things they do every day. No rational person would be willing to fully follow all the barbaric and cruel edicts within the Bible. If you have to pick and choose which parts of the Bible to follow, you don’t get to claim it’s a holy book.
-Rationalatheism

I still cannot stand this line of argument, because it’s so easy to counter.
All you have to do is be one of the millions upon millions of Christians who interpret Jesus as having abolished the laws of the Old Testament, and suddenly you are okay to still condemn homosexuality because Romans says it is bad.
There are much better ways than using the bible to point out the hypocrisy of Christians when it comes to their “morality”.

It all depends on who you’re talking to though. If someone only works within the framework of the bible, you’re going to have a tough time using anything other than scripture to sway them.
I’d mention when Jesus explicitly stated in Matthew 5:17 that “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.”
The Old Testament still applies. Straight from the horse’s mouth. 

Sure, but it&#8217;s also easy to interpret that as Jesus saying that the laws are now fulfilled and therefore no longer apply.  After all, the fulfillment of a prophecy means that the prophecy is over.However, they have any even easier dodge.  There&#8217;s a fairly consistent reading of the Bible where the god character makes it clear these laws are only for his favored, chosen people.  Which Jesus, by his sacrifice, extended salvation to everyone without extending the laws to everyone.And the New Testament condemns homosexuality too in most versions, so the point is moot even if you can convince someone the old laws don&#8217;t apply.
