Thought bubbles out loud
washingtonexaminer:

13% of Democrats say cheating on your spouse is “morally acceptable.” (Via Gallup)

I think it’s interesting that in this entire list, the one the Washington Examiner chooses to highlight is that 13% of democrats think it’s okay to cheat on their spouse.
61% of Republicans think marriage equality is “morally unacceptable”and 72% think abortion is. These are much more frightening statistics from the high minded individuals who are supposed to be running a country. Spend more time fighting real issues like youth poverty, mental illness, or gun violence instead of focusing your energy on what’s going on in my bedroom.

Find a beautiful piece of art. If you fall in love with Van Gogh or Matisse or John Oliver Killens, or if you fall love with the music of Coltrane, the music of Aretha Franklin, or the music of Chopin - find some beautiful art and admire it, and realize that that was created by human beings just like you, no more human, no less.

Well, that was easy.

When TED speaker ShaoLan Hsueh tried to teach her children Chinese, she realized just how hard it is for new learners to grasp. So she created a series of illustrations to make the beautiful, often complex characters easier to remember. It makes learning Chinese … wait for it … Chineasy.
