“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Cyanide and Happiness: I Want To Go, But For Entirely Different Reasons

Poster of the Week - Issue No. 48 - Mistakes

Continuing alphabetically, I bring you this week's poster, "Mistakes".

It's Purely Animal - Issue No. 52 - Dolphin Stampede

Now this is absolutely fascinating.  I guarantee you will never see anything like this in your lifetime.  What the hell am I talking about, how am I guaranteeing it?  It's a Sunday, forgive me.  I'm sure that most Californians would probably see this if they were out boating or fishing for some reason.

A huge, and I mean huge pod of dolphins were spotted off the coast of California last week and it is truly an amazing sight to see.  While I've seen many dolphins in my lifetime, I've never seen anything like this.

Well here you go, all it takes is a little reading and obviously you can see them in your lifetime.  So I guess I should say "a majority of you" will never see this in your lifetime.  Absolutely fascinating to say the least.

Laugh of the Day: The World's Worst Handyman

This is too freaking hilarious.  You never hear a word with these videos, but just watching them makes anyone laugh.  In this "Just For Laughs" video it doesn't matter how many times the carpenter puts up this shelf, he never gets it right - even when he uses a level.
YouTube: How much skill does it take to hold something straight? Not very much, but with this tricked wall, no matter how good you are, you'll never get it right and she won't hesitate to make you feel terrible for it!
