You know, the one that gives housewives/full-time mothers a pension— wages for housework?
It’s ONLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR FEMINISM, SOCIALISM, AND WOMEN OF COLOR. Not a big deal or anything. Tumblr is mysteriously silent about this.

Which is not only far away, it’s a properly Socialist nation, as opposed to the kind of Socialist people claim we’re turning into (which is more precisely called “not Socialist”)
Getting wages for housework makes no sense, or more precisely, it doesn’t make sense for an outside party to disburse them. It’s an important job, vital even, but it’s done as part of the work done to keep the house maintained. It deserves recognition and appreciation, but by the people in the house, not by the People or the State.
By this argument, kids should be paid by the government for making their bed.
It’s being spun as a triumph for women’s rights, but really it’s a social program to get assistance to people who do work that doesn’t make a salary.
Interactive Guide For Comparing the Speeds of Famed Sci-Fi Ships
I don’t know how the Enterprise is slower than the Galactica. Unless it’s markedly different in the new series, a Battlestar had to work like a dog just to get to light speed, and even then, only by burning up most of its fuel (The Living Legend)

We did have to do quite a bit to make our portables worth a damn, didn’t we?
Please God don’t say ketchup or BBQ sauce.
I only put mustard on Hot Dogs. I put chips on my sandwiches.
I support this.
The peanut butter and Baked Ruffles sandwich is one of mankind’s greatest inventions.

DC Women Kicking Ass: If We Put Them on Everything They'll Have to Do SOMETHING: Zazzle Opens Super Best Friends Forever Store -
Over a few months of hearing nothing about the ESBUFFS (aka Super Best Friends Forever) there’s been two signs that the series may not be dead and gone.
The SBFF are, of course, the trinity of Supergirl, Wonder Girl and Batgirl from the fantastic animated short series done by Lauren Faust for DC…
The fact that DC sees at least the marketing potential in these characters is a good sign.
I’ve said it before - I hope for the day that the DC Nation shorts are collected on DVD. These and Amethyst are at top of the list.
