In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.
The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.
He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.
and old Apple computers
the apple was a rainbow
Reblogging again because more people need to know about Turing dammit.
Oh my god
sadly, a person making minimum wage in america would be baffled by seeing a bill larger than a $5 or $1. a good cartoon.
written by someone that’s never been to or worked in retail
"you deserve poverty for giving me poor customer service"
I hope the person who made that cartoon dies a painful death.
and furthermore I’ll work circles around you, dickhead.
oh ps. what kind of name is Rob Smith Jr?????
"*this is a true story"
somehow i highly doubt it.
As someone who has done a lot in retail; this is literally impossible. The damn cash register tells you what change to give. The artist definitely pulled this one out of their ass
Ass, brain, whats the difference?
The best part that undermines the cartoonist’s intent is that, if she’s demanding $11/hour and the meal is $10.60, it means right now she can’t even afford to eat where she works with an hour’s pay.
What I love about the anti- let’s pay fast food workers 11 (or whatever) an hour is “I don’t think the stupid teens making my burgers deserve that much money” and I’m like, you do know there are fully grown ass adult people trying to make a living wage there too, right? I mean, sure, there’s a lot of teenagers in the industry don’t get me wrong, but there’s no shortage of adult people working those jobs too, and they’re just trying to live. We’re all just trying to live here, guys. I work in retail and alone with my wage I can’t afford an apartment, and I’m 28. So like… there’s more than just one narrow group of people working in fast food trying to make ends meet, okay?
Good to meet you lasagna.
It’s really hard to dress
It always makes a mess
You love it though, so you should confess
You’d gain a pound a day
At every meal, but anyway
You don’t care a thing about that, hey
You know it’s beautiful
REBLOGGING FOR THE REPHRASED TRAIN LYRICS.
Fuck me running
Sad thing is the goddamn Train song is the first thing I thought of

I love Seattle, but I should warn you that I’m both introverted and very comfortable with rain. (The rain thing is not a joke. Except for a couple months in the summer, it really does rain a lot.) If you want to go somewhere with sunshine and extroverts, Seattle would not be the place.
Seattleites are (stereotypically, with many exceptions, of course) extremely polite but not necessarily friendly—lots of “have a wonderful day!”, but not as much “we should hang out!” Definitely a nerd culture there, though, considering all the tech companies, and there is indeed a thriving kink scene.
My favorite thing about Seattle is all the nature; there’s mountains and forests all around you and a very short drive to a variety of gorgeous wilderness. If that’s something that feeds your soul, you might like Seattle; if you’re looking for somewhere that people are super open and welcoming, you might not like it.
Everything about this is true. I lived North of Seattle (about halfway between Seattle and Canada) for about two years and it was BEAUTIFUL. and rainy. I though “oh whatever they’re exaggerating I don’t mind a little rain” and I was wrong. The summers are gorgeous though. I wouldn’t mind living up there again.
