Chiune Sugihara. This man saved 6000 Jews. He was a Japanese diplomat in Lithuania. When the Nazis began rounding up Jews, Sugihara risked his life to start issuing unlawful travel visas to Jews. He hand-wrote them 18 hrs a day. The day his consulate closed and he had to evacuate, witnesses claim he was STILL writing visas and throwing from the train as he pulled away. He saved 6000 lives. The world didn’t know what he’d done until Israel honored him in 1985, the year before he died.
psss sex ed people instead of saying “male condoms” and “female condoms” lets say “external condoms” and “internal condoms” bc that accurately describes what they are used for without gendering items in a way that might make people uncomfortable. plus! internal condoms can be used for anal and external condoms can be used for strap-ons, so this isn’t just a trans(*) issue (not that that wouldn’t be reason enough..) but its an everyone-should-have-access-to-truthful-sex-ed issue
so yeah. condoms. come in both internal and external flavors. use what applies. be safe yall!

Wow!!! This is an incredible accomplishment!!! I’m overwhelmed by your work.
Bruce Springsteen forever is and forever will be my favorite. Listen to him attempt a cover of Lorde’s Royals. You know he only knows it from hearing his kids play it…
Ascalon is a free shawl pattern by Christelle Nihoul that you can download on Ravelry. It reminds me a little bit of Marin by Ysolda Teague, in that both patterns have a sideways construction, a garter-stitch body, and traveling stitches at the border. Ascalon looks to be quite a bit bigger, and also has the addition of lace stitches on the edge. I loved Marin so much I made two of them, so Ascalon is definitely going on my to-knit list.
Waiting in line behind a kid who is complaining to his parents that the Republican Club at the college he visited didn’t have a libertarian wing. Gag.
