i get it, they’re trying to make the point of how fucked up the situation is in ferguson, especially in terms of the heavy militarization. but it’s just super uncomfortable because they often frame it like, “when we were in Iraq we didn’t even use guns like these!” and all i hear is, “when we were invading countries in the middle east and bombing /shooting / killing other people, we didn’t even use guns like these!”

Most people give the homeless change or leftovers, Mark Bustos is cutting their hair
For the past few months, New York City hairstylist Mark Bustos — who normally spends his days working at an upscale salon — has been volunteering on his days off to offer haircuts to homeless people he sees on the street. With a simple phrase, “I want to do something nice for you today,” he has been helping people get a fresh, uplifting makeover.

The Boy Who Invented Email
“In 1978, a 14-year-old boy invented email.
He created a computer program, which he called “email,” that replicated all the functions of the interoffice mail system: Inbox, Outbox, Folders, Memo, Attachments, Address Book, etc., the now familiar parts of every email system.
On August 30, 1982, the US government officially recognized V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai as the inventor of email by awarding him the first US Copyright for “Email,” “Computer Program for Electronic Mail System,” for his 1978 invention. This was awarded at a time when Copyright was the only way to protect software inventions.”
