    Seconding the “escalation of force” critique. Their weapon handling is shit. Their crowd control is shit. The police there are clearly poorly-trained, poorly-lead, and just generally fucking up in every way possible.

  6. Agent Carter brings something new and exciting to the genre. Not only is it about an awesome woman overcoming anything in her way, it proves that superhero stories can be used to deal with the tough stuff of our history.

    You might be wondering why superhero comic books and films should bother with these stories. Why should they be expected to tackle these issues head on or deal with these moments in history?

    Easy: because it’s important.

    How many times has someone argued that mid-century America really wasn’t “so bad” for women and people of color? For men and women who felt obligated to adhere to certain gender roles? For anyone who naturally fell outside of society’s approved “lines”? How often do we hear someone wistfully yearn for a bygone era they don’t even properly understand?

    Films like Agent Carter confront these narratives. Furthermore, by placing these issues within a fantasy context, we give ourselves new ways of looking at them and may even reveal important truths about ourselves.

    in movies, whenever a hot guy fake-flirts with an “ugly” girl and she gets all flustered, it’s intended to be a funny joke and make u think the girl is pathetic for believing such an attractive man could be interested in her. ur supposed to hate the girl.

    but whenever a hot girl fake-flirts with an ugly guy and he gets all flustered, it’s intended to make u feel bad for the guy and think the girl is a Bitch. ur supposed to hate the girl.

    ur always supposed to hate the girl.

    Your bottled water habit is sucking California dry

    If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.

    Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.

    Turn on the tap instead Follow micdotcom

    EVERYONE PLEASE AT LEAST TAKE A QUICK SECOND TO LOOK AT THIS

    BECAUSE IT IS EFFECTING THE EXACT AREA I LIVE IN

    Lots of people believe bottled water is safer and cleaner than tap water, when in reality there’s no evidence proving such a thing.

    Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!: Bottled Water segment, gives a very good and thorough summary of the bottled water culture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHx6BX3HZJc

    You want better water? Buy a Zero filter. SRSLY. Stop buying bottled if possible. You need water with you? Get reusable acrylic or glass water bottles (wrapped in a silicon sleeve) and fill it up from your filter pitcher. SAVE MONEY, SAVE MY STATE

    This is all incredibly important, some cities have as little as 60 -120 days left.  Try using a refillable water container, and if you’re a California resident, make sure to report water waste in public spaces.

    Also, maybe take a second and sign the petition to stop a giant Slip n’ slide from being built in Los Angeles. Priorities.

    Municipalities are selling their water to companies like Coca-Cola at rock-bottom prices. And then when towns run out of water, what happens? Dasani sells people their own water back for a huge profit. When there’s no water in the tap, residents will have no choice but to pay for bottled water at a huge mark-up.

    Seems like we should be yelling at the public utilities to stop selling municipal water to bottlers in the first place.

    All of these issues are real, and serious (although that article about cities on the verge of running out of water is old — it’s from January. Since I haven’t heard anything more recently about cities having no water supply, I suspect those particular crises have been averted). But the fact is that only 20% of California’s water supply goes to municipal, residential, and commercial users. 80% of the state’s water is used in agriculture, and because agricultural users are charged far less for their water than everyone else, they have no incentive to conserve. Cities, businesses, and individual users do need to conserve, too, and many of us are doing what we can, but it’s literally a drop in a bucket in comparison. California’s water woes will not be fixed until we deal with agriculture. This Slate article provides a pretty good overview of the issue, and the reasons why it’s so hard to come up with good solutions.
