I have two grandparents left.

My grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s earlier this year and now he has been in the hospital twice in one week for an unrelated problem. It is so bad that my mom went to Florida to be with him, on the assumption it is going to be the very worst result.

My remaining grandmother (other side of the family) who is 91 and fading just sent all of her grandchildren a very sort of…final letter. There is nothing overtly wrong with her, she is just kind of reaching the end.

I’m relaying this just because I don’t know what else to do and death or the thought of death sends me into an anxiety/depression spiral and WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU WANT WITH ME 2014!? COULD YOU PLEASE NOT SUCK FOR EVEN TWO FUCKING WEEKS IN A ROW? FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.

tracy-v:

A friend tagged me in a Facebook “game,” but I actually liked this one. The challenge was to list 10 books that have stayed with me in some way. Here’s my list, in no particular order:

Stranger in a Strange Land —Robert Heinlein
Star Rangers —André Norton
The Illustrated Man —Ray Bradbury
The Haunting of Hill House —Shirley Jackson
Hell House —Richard Matheson
Ammie, Come Home —Barbara Michaels
Casino Royale —Ian Fleming
A Catskill Eagle —Robert Parker
On Writing-A Memoir of the Craft —Stephen King
Where the Wild Things Are —Maurice Sendak

(And I really could’ve subbed in nearly any of these authors’ other titles.)

I want to play!

A Woman in Berlin — Anonymous 
Anna Karenina — Leo Tolstoy
Divorced, Beheaded, Survived: A Feminist Reinterpretation of the Wives of Henry VIII — Karen Lindsay
To Marry an English Lord — Gail MacColl and Carol McD. Wallace
Pride and Prejudice — Jane Austen
Going Postal — Terry Pratchett
I’m a Stranger Here Myself (aka Notes From a Big Country) — Bill Bryson
And Then There Were None — Agatha Christie
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire — J.K. Rowling
Funerals to Die For — Kathy Benjamin

Yeah, I included my book. That thing nearly killed me.

The quote from "Elizabeth" that keeps going around my head every time I read about Ferguson.
Norfolk: So cut off my head, and make me a martyr. The people will always remember it.
Walsingham: No. They will forget.

Anonymous said: Regarding the whole feminism debacle, don't you think that a website like Cracked should probably not take sides on issues like this and begin alienating fans?

thisdanobrien:

[Speaking on behalf of myself and not Cracked-at-Large, the policies and shape of which are not under my sole jurisdiction.]

I’m not talking/thinking about every sub-faction of feminism and every misguided protest or action that has resulted from a misinterpretation OF feminism, because feminism is such a huge thing and, as Soren pointed out, not everyone is going to be getting it right, all the time. There will be feminist spin-off groups that don’t quite grasp the message, there will be groups that pervert and distort it for their own agenda, and there will be groups that go overboard and so on, but that is true of literally every movement (civil rights-related, political, religious or otherwise) in the history of time.

I’m by no means an expert, which is why I’m trying to learn, but what I think about when I talk about feminism is what I remember being articulated to me by my sisters-in-law and what I saw/see embodied by my Mom’s example (and my Dad’s, for that matter), and it’s a really simple and clear message to me: Equal political, economic and social rights for men and women. There are smaller and more specific aspects of this broader conversation that are a particular focus of mine (representation in fiction/pop culture, educating people to help make an America where a woman can walk down the street at night feeling exactly as safe as I do, every night of my freaking life [which is to say, very]), but the core remains the same:  Equality where it doesn’t currently exist.

So, when you talk about “taking sides,” my knee-jerk response is, uh, what’s your side? I’m not trying to be glib here. I could be wrong but, according to my slow, caveman brain, if my side is equality for men and women then the other side must be inequality, right? And if that’s the case, then, no, I don’t feel any responsibility to give the other side representation in my writing. There’s the potential that in doing so I’ll be alienating readers that either want men to have more rights than women or women to have more rights than men, but that’s a risk I’m absolutely fine with.

"The whole feminism debacle?" Yes, Anon (and by Anon I mean white, cis male who is almost certainly under 25), you’re right. Every major Cracked figure on tumblr agreeing that women are people was probably a complete fiasco in your micropenis of a mind. But the rest of us just see it as not being terrible. Not being terrible is something you might want to strive for, by the way. Many others have achieved it. I have faith in you!

After years of watching British panel shows, I have broken the code to being a successful comedian in that country. All you have to do is make jokes about the following:

Anything about the French
Anything about the Germans and WWII or the 1966 World Cup
The channel “Dave” replays things
Scotland does not eat healthy
The Welsh fuck sheep and the people of Norfolk (or sometimes the Midlands) fuck their relatives
The Lib Dems refuse to have a straightforward opinion
The Express is obsessed with Princess Di
Nick Clegg is an errand boy
Eric Pickles is fat

Give me my millions of comedy dollars now please.
