So, I’m really excited for that dryer. Daumn. It’s going to be great.

## Lab Problems

### -10 ◊ Mar ◊ 2014-

My lab was due early this morning and I’m doing it right now.

I just found out that my lab partner wrote the wrong thing. Our paper is supposed to be about the Landes Splitting Factor (g) and he instead calculated B_c. IDK.

The person who’s supposed to review mine won’t get it till like 12 am.

Wow I suck.

friendly reminder not to support lindt this easter season, or apparently ever again, because they support autism speaks.

Wowwwwwwww

SIGH.

because they’re adamant that autism is a disease that can be “cured”. They don’t have a single autistic person on their board. Autism Speaks produces advertisements, small films, ect. about what a burden autistic people are to a society. They only spend about 4% of their money on “family services.” They create a stereotype that makes it hard for actual autistic people, like myself, be heard and recognized as actually autistic. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder before they realized that I actually showed signs of Asperger’s. They don’t actually help us.

That’s the problem with Autism Speaks.

(tw for violence, ableism, abuse, murder, and death)

It goes deeper than not having any autistic board members. Many of the allistics running the organization promote the horrific notion that you’re better off dead than autistic, and their influence and “activism” only supports the ideology resulting in the continued murder of autistic children and adults by their parents and caregivers.

Former Autism Speaks board member Harry Slatkin, whose wife, Laura, continues to serve on the Board of Directors, stated in an interview with Town and Country while still a board member that sometimes he hoped their autistic son David would drown in the backyard pond rather than “suffer like this all his life.” Evidencing a pattern of similarly violent rhetoric, Autism Speaks is also responsible for the 2006 PSA “Autism Every Day" in which their then Vice President states on camera that she considered putting her autistic daughter in the car and driving off a bridge, and that the only reason she refrained from doing so was because her other, non-autistic daughter would have been waiting for her at home—her autistic daughter was in the room as she made these statements. Furthermore, the producer of this PSA explicitly admitted that the film was intentionally staged to portray negative images of autistic people and their families.

Only four days following the release of “Autism Every Day,” pathologist Karen McCarron smothered her autistic daughter with a garbage bag. McCarron stated that she murdered Katie because her “autism had not been improving,” had thought about killing Katie, that made an earlier brief attempt at suffocation, wanted to cure Katie, thought killing Katie would make her “complete” in heaven, and wanted to live without autism and thus had to kill Katie. Investigators found that McCarron was obsessed with different treatments for Katie. (See People v. FRANK-McCARRON, 934 NE 2d 76 - Ill: Appellate Court, 3rd Dist. 2010.Though it is not presently possible to draw a direct connection between Autism Speaks’ PSA and Katie’s murder, this crime and dozens like it only underscore how the kind of rhetoric that Autism Speaks favors only serves to recklessly endanger the lives of autistic people.

Autism Speaks also publicly supports the Judge Rotenberg Center, a group home for autistic and neurodivergent students that uses “treatments” like food and sleep deprivation and electric shock to try and train the residents into acting neurotypical. The center has changed states three times in an attempt to bypass regulation against abusive treatment, and their practices have resulted in the deaths of more than one student.

It’s not just an issue of Autism Speaks making it harder for us to get proper diagnoses and treatment. Autism Speaks is actively killing us.

Maybe it’s because I worked at Lindt but you can still buy Lindt chocolate.

Just don’t buy the ones in gold foil.

Autism Speaks is shitty as hell and I’ve been on the side preparing a letter for them do donate to a different organization like Autism Science Foundation.

I think the harsh reality is that Lindt probably doesn’t care too much. I mean you can say a lot of shit about Autism Speaks, but you can’t deny that they’re damn good at advertising. Groups that are actually legitimate aren’t very known and so supporting such unknown groups doesn’t do Lindt much favor. It doesn’t put them on the autism bandwagon.

According to the Internet, this is what Europeans think breakfast in America is like.

Are you implying that it isn’t

God, this is so offensive.  As an American, I can say that we only eat breakfast with a bald eagle tablecloth or are deported for lack of FREEDOM.  Get your facts straight.

I’m reblogging this again because I really need everyone to listen to how polite this little dog’s barks are. He’s a gentleman.

Jackie Parker was Flight controller at NASA at 18. She didn’t stay there, she went on the become the first woman to attend the US Air force Test Pilot School as a pilot. As a matter of fact, she had learned to fly, before she could drive. She resigned the air force in 1996 and has been working in  computer Hardware ever since.

Beautiful translation

I’m pretty disappointed with the outcome of the Oscars. Let It Go should not have won original song. I think that rightfully goes to The Moon Song (yes I strongly did not like the movie but I can admit that song was gr8).

I haven’t seen Frozen yet and so probably can’t make any valid judgments but as a stand alone song, it is very Disney, and very uncreative.

The Moon Song captivates the emotional complexities of Her-which could be understood by those who haven’t seen it. Maybe if I see Frozen, I’ll disagree.

Also I think Feral should have won Best Animated Short. Mr. Hublot was well told and had quality animation but I don’t think it had the depth and breadth that Feral had.

To be honest though, it seems like a lot of the movies that won were the popular ones and not ones that were done better but were less popular.

Also the fact that Out of the Furnace didn’t even get considered for Bet Original Score is sad. Nor the Place Beyond the Pines and Pacific Rim for Best Original script.

The Oscars still has that strong smell of elitism to me. It seems unless science fiction or fantasy films have an overt “deepness” they are assumed to be not on par with more “analytic” movies like Her (which painfully shoves down your throat that it’s deep)
