‘Why I bet £900k on the Scottish referendum’
"This was not a reckless gamble. Losing this money would have seriously hurt. But I wouldn’t have lost my house - although maybe my wife would have had something to say about it. I’d call it responsible gambling. And my main advice would be “don’t try this at home”. But I’d prefer to call this a reasoned wager. For me it was almost an investment."

Coming up next on BBC One: BBC News pats themselves on the back for downplaying the yes campaign and making false media coverage to skew the votes- more at 21:00

you know whats fun?

having to use the disability card to get anyone’s attention when they make a mistake on your financial aid. Its not humiliating or frustrating at all. Especially when you’re dealing with it from halfway across the world and paying up the ass for international minutes to work around their schedules for their own fuck up.

really fun!

keeping up with my travel journal!!!

I’LL CALL NOW

I’m so mad I can’t remember my credit card number or how to do basic algebraic math or what fucking Weberian theory I was supposed to remember for a fucking exam but as soon as this comes on I can mouth the entire thing fuck

Victor White suicide ruling leads to public scrutiny

smallrevolutionary:

black-american-queen:

OK. I KNOW YOU ARE ALL WORRIED ABOUT FERGUSON BUT CAN YOU FOR A SECOND LOOK AT THIS VICTOR WHITE CASE?

NOTHING ADDS UP.

APPARENTLY AFTER BEING SEARCHED TWICE (while handcuffed) HE PRODUCED A GUN AT THE POLICE STATION AND SHOT HIMSELF. HIS DEATH HAS BEEN RULED A SUICIDE.

YOU NEED TO SPREAD THIS TUMBLR. BECAUSE THIS IS BULLSHIT AND THE COPS ARE COVERING IT UP.

boosting this again. all this shit needs scrutiny. thats the only way we will get the reform we are literally dying to get.

North American River Otters

My first 5 hours of Ireland

- faceplanted on the stairs right outside the plane in front of literally everyone else who was on the plane i.e everyone on the escalator 

- didn’t realize until going through the entire airport twice that the cart I was pushing my luggage in had a busted wheel so I was furiously pushing it at 0.2 mph like a big, sweaty idiot

- Panicked and said “take out” when asked whether I wanted my sandwich for here and then got scolded for sitting down right after

- Literally walked 6km in the wrong direction trying to find a rail station 1 block away and got horrendously lost- ended up actually outside of Dublin proper going in circles

- Slipped in the b&b bathtub and displaced most of the water onto the floor (in retrospect the handles on the tub were apparently not just for the elderly)

- Got lost again in a 10 room bed and breakfast the size of a townhouse

My black year: Maggie Anderson at TEDxGrandRapids

Chicago family Buys Black for a year. Maggie Anderson, shares her experience with that experiment.

Maggie Anderson also Author of the Book based on the experiment:

"Our Black Year"

Where are the notes??? I mean, this is THE answer, according to much of pro-Black tumblr, so I’d expect more cosigns…

apps like “around the way” are doing a great job in pin pointing black businesses in nyc, but there needs to be much more than that. hopefully, everyone will watch this.
