If you’re unemployed, it’s not because there isn’t any work.
Just look around: A housing shortage, crime, pollution; we need better schools and parks. Whatever our needs, they all require work. And as long as we have unsatisfied needs, there’s work to be done.
So ask yourself, what kind of world has work but no jobs? It’s a world where work is not related to satisfying our needs, a world where work is only related to satisfying the profit needs of business.
This country was not built by the huge corporations or government bureaucracies. It was built by people who work. And, it is working people who should control the work to be done. Yet, as long as employment is tied to somebody else’s profits, the work won’t get done.

Was expecting classist bullshit, got the exact opposite

This is so ubelievably important and I hate that I have to keep re-explaining it to people.

DAN: When you do interviews, you’re faced with the choice to either be the most boring person on earth or just get ridiculous things written about you from time to time
JOSH HOROWITZ: Sometimes it might be good to be boring
DAN: It might be but I just get bored of myself

I once went to the Renaissance Fair dressed as Marty McFly, and nobody got the joke.

That will forever be one of the most disappointing moments in my life.

This is my favorite photoset rn

I totally get this guy. A whole fair of nerds and no one got a awesome 80s pop culture reference. Shame. The faces are amazing.

I’ve been mad as hell about the Hobby Lobby ruling from SCOTUS and wondered what I could do other than bitch on social media about it. Thanks to friends at SCA, there’s a campaign now for angry crafters. 

Tweet your brick at SCA @seculardotorg on Twitter. Find the Facebook event here

Knitting: For thin yarn, use size 8 needles. For thick, use size 11. Cast on 30 stitches for thin or 20 for thick. Knit 25 rows for thin or 18 for thick. Cast off and bind off, take a picture and mail. ;)

Crochet: Use an I hook, chain 25, then double crochet across for six rows. Your mileage may vary based on the weight of your yarn.

Campaign runs from July 2 - July 18!

THANK.

Hooray, the deadline has been extended to August 5th because of how successful the campaign has been! They’re trying to get all 50 states represented - they’ve even gotten some from overseas (Tokyo, South Korea)
