Dear hiring committee members,

Your insistence that you are "not hiring for any tenure track positions in bioethics at the moment," is an interesting opening gambit in our negotiations, and I applaud your persistence on this point after so many emails

My counter-offer, that you are indeed hiring a tenure track professor and compensating very generously, remains firm, however I am willing to haggle over the following minor points ...

This is a joke about me not being very good at the German language 

@bgcarlisle “Must have taken a wrong turn - we’re back on Einbanstrasse again.”

Strength to everyone having to deal with clueless liberal tweets and comments on Slack about how our nightmare is over while people are still dying, homeless, and don't have healthcare.

The arc of the universe only bends towards justice if you get out and push.

What the hell are these meetings for this umm ... "Abgesagt" working group

And why am I always the only person who shows up?

Hey friends

We're all anxious and running on empty

If you can make a safe space for someone today, whatever that means in your context

Please do

It does feel like someone at CBS gave the Discovery showrunners a note of like "DS9 is hot now, more DS9 references"

friendly reminder that:

- you do not need to think someone is the scum of the earth to block them or mute them
- being blocked or muted does not mean you are a bad person in any way shape or form
- you have a right to surround yourself with people you enjoy, indeed, you have a right to happiness
- people liking you doesn't mean you are a good person
- you liking something or someone doesn't mean that that thing is good

it is a misconception I think a lot of people hold, and it's not truth.

What is it with the names of Star Trek characters always having apostrophes in it

I just realized that I never trained @moreds9 to speak in the voice of Gowron

So I fixed this glaring omission

Suddenly remembered I made this exact post like two years ago, but for yamok sauce.

Self-sealing stem bolts? Self-sealing stem bolts?!?!?!!!!! *Rips garments* SELF-SEALING STEM BOLTS?!?!?

Not only does LeGuin get a US Postage Stamp, the background celebrates one of the first and most notable #nonbinary characters in #sff.

so now twelve members of the National Guard have been removed from duty ahead of the inauguration tomorrow because of ties to white supremacy groups...

...but they were absolutely a-ok with them being part of the National Guard before last week.

If you think racist white supremacy bullshit isn't protected by the USian government at this point I am not sure what it'll take to convince you.

Hey undergrads - shooting professors who were meaningful an email that they were meaningful might seem weird or awkward but like it's very sweet

Looking at Vulcan calligraphy for non-tattoo related reasons

"im not anti-black"
"AHT AHT" *points to the frogs* "the frogs, they tell the truth"

Show thread

imagine if every time a nonblack person said something anti-black frogs just spewed from their throat for ten full seconds and the frogs just stuck around them, like not super close, but a small circle of frogs within hopping (onto the person) distance

there'd be so many frogs and every time someone was like, "im not anti-black" you could just point to the amount of frogs lingering near them
