Mexico CitySex workers gather to commemorate their colleagues who were violently murdered, two days before the Day of the Dead festival.

this is why you don’t fuck around with day of the dead, because it has a deeper meaning than “pretty sugar skulls”. those are offerings to the dead, a symbol of each and every person we choose to honor in the afterlife; not some quirky costume to put on and appropriate. those skulls mean something, the pan de muertos and altars mean something. so go fuck yourself if you think that they’re just for decoration while you shit on my ancestors for you stupid pasty ass bland halloween party.

Gracias.

Bacharach, Rheinland-Pfalz, Southwestern Germany. Der Mittelrhein (Rhine Valley/Middle Rhine) is the most famous section of the Rhein river, running between Bonn and Bingen near Mainz, and spanning the German states of Nordrhein-Westfalen, Rheinland-Pfalz, and Hessen. The section from Koblenz to Bingen and Rüdesheim, known as the Rhein Gorge, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The entire valley is often called “The Romantic Rhein”. There are countless castles and ruins and this area is one of the most touristy in the country. Traveling there is easy - there are cruises, castles and winery tours by day, sampling of wine at nigh, and it’s no surprise that the visiting demographic is slanted heavily towards retirees looking for an easy break. Peak season is in summer, when the hillsides are green and the cruise boats busy. By the end of September, many inns and restaurants already start closing down for the winter, and almost all cruises end by November, starting up again in April.

I have actually done this by hand, and holy heck, I wish I’d known about this method! This is brilliant.

If something is ‘old as fuck’ then it’s about 1.2 billion years old because that’s when life evolved sexual reproduction.

 

However, if something is “old as balls” it’s only about 65 million years old, when placental mammals began to evolve proper testicles.

During my time in Ethiopia, I met many people who rely on health care outposts like the one seen in the bottom two pictures here. Through these outposts, children and families get vaccines, diagnoses, and treatment for diseases like diarrhea and pneumonia.

But most of these families, and most of their health care facilities, don’t have regular access to clean water. When I asked people about their greatest needs, almost all of them—from the Women’s Health Army volunteers to children—cited clean water first.

More than 45 million Ethiopians live without clean water. I spoke to women who walk miles every other day with heavy jerrycans to get drinking water for their families. The people I met explained how lack of clean water is a health problem, a financial problem, and a family problem.

So for the next week nerdfighteria is teaming up with water.org to raise money to build sustainable wells so that more than 4,000 people in Ethiopia can have clean water. Please join me in donating—or, if you can’t, in spreading the word. Thanks, and DFTBA.
