Let's see how this one goes.

I can't wait, can you?

Suicide is now the biggest killer of men in the UK under 50.

Exceeding accidents, coronary heart disease and cancer.

Of the 5,981 suicides in 2012, an astonishing 4,590 (76%) were men. And yet while Britain has high-profile campaigns on, say, testicular cancer or driving safely, the biggest killer of men under 50 is not getting the attention it deserves.

GOD DAMN IT!!!!!






















Oh, well...

Hi DU! I'll be voting in the Scottish Independence Referendum on Thursday...


.. I will be voting YES.

If one day your state had the opportunity to secede, how bad would the situation have to be in the US for you to vote YES for independence?

What would you do if you saw a T-rex with (edit) fricken LASER beams coming out its eyes

bursting through the wall of your house and eating your TV and DVD collection?

Seriously.

Scottish referendum: Shock new poll says Scots set to vote for independence

http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/sep/06/scots-radical-new-deal-save-the-union

"The people of Scotland are to be offered a historic opportunity to devise a federal future for their country before next year's general election, it emerged on Saturday night, as a shock new poll gave the campaign for independence a narrow lead for the first time.

Amid signs of panic and recrimination among unionist ranks about the prospects of a yes vote on 18 September, the Observer has learned that a devolution announcement designed to halt the nationalist bandwagon is due to be made within days by the anti-independence camp.

The plan, in the event of a no vote, is that people from all parts of Scottish society rather than just politicians would be invited to take part in a Scottish conference or convention that would decide on further large-scale transfers of power from London to Holyrood."

Many of my closest friends were once homophobic.


They are no longer, through knowing me.

You can't change the world by sitting inside a big glass box and making up lies about "the scary people". 90% of the time they're doing exactly the same thing.

The best way to combat prejudice isn't to shout at prejudiced people. The best way to combat prejudice is to be in front of the prejudiced and NOT be what they expect you to be.
