What researchers discovered was surprising: Those who are described as ‘agreeable, conscientious personalities’ are more likely to follow orders and deliver electric shocks that they believe can harm innocent people, while ‘more contrarian, less agreeable personalities’ are more likely to refuse to hurt others.

The study also found that people holding left-wing political views were less willing to hurt others. One particular group held steady and refused destructive orders: ‘women who had previously participated in rebellious political activism such as strikes or occupying a factory.’

LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS! Chicago is still hyper-segregated as it has been since the early fucking 20th century. I can’t address the present issues without talking about the past. Ya’ll ‘bout to get educated :)

I’ll bullet point this easier understanding.
Segregation in Chicago:

  • World World I (1914-1918)the first great migration, where people from all corners of the world were coming to Chicago to have a chance at finding jobs and due to the continuous boom of the industrial revolution that accessibility skyrocketed. People needed to live where they worked.
  • Overcrowding in the Black Belt, (originally from 22nd to 31st, but has expanded from 39th all the way to 95 over the past several decades.) Who was behind this shit??? The Neighborhood Property Owners/Association a.k.a. a bunch of rich white people socially and economically pushing black people into this belt of land and we still see this shit TODAY; i.e. pushing people of color out to the suburbs so people can gasp over the Loop, Gold Coast, and even Bronzeville now.
  • Violence, because of the 1919 Race Riots – the product of racial prejudice, economic competition, political corruption, media falsification and black hatred. (What else is new?) Restrictive covenants (or keeping the neighborhoods white) also played a major role in this and still do.
  • World War II: The black population triples, Chicago’s overall population triples. Suburbination becomes a thing… Guaranteed mortgages and redlining is EVIL. Contract buying, more violence, and public housing (a.k.a The Projects). 

So why are the outskirts of Hyde Park, Pilsen, Lincoln Park, Beverly, etc. surrounded by low income housing, and extreme gun violence despite the fact that the city wanna cater to the post-grad suburban-recently Chicagoan white ass yuppies??? 

Because things haven’t changed in Black neighborhoods because the damage has been done, over and over again. Because whites benefited from this system by having lower mortgage rates and using guarantees denied to all POC to buy homes in the city and suburbs. Because all of this bullshit led to dilapidation by POC communities, especially black communities. Because systematic and institutional racism and oppression. Because fucking America.

This explains some really eerie and troubling shit I’ve been noticing in my recent apartment hunting quest.

say goodbye to ur precious animes 

First of all staff, the plural of anime is anime, no s.

Second of all, how the fuck could you do this? This just isn’t fair. You’re not even educated on anime (you don’t even know the plural..) and yet you’re just taking it away? Why don’t you watch some good anime. I’m sure you’ll change your mind.. Why don’t you try Neon Genesis Avengelion, or a classic like Free! (one of my personal faves)

Do you think it's possible to be both bisexual and homoromantic? My sister's come out to my parents and me but we all think she's just gay. We love her anyway but she's mad because we're confused about how she can be two contrasting things.

roachpatrol:

I think people generally know their own sexuality better, by living it, than their family does, just by looking at them sometimes.

Additionally bisexuals face a lot of erasure and social stigma, and people who like multiple genders are always getting pressured to ‘fess up’ to being just gay or just straight. But we’re not, no matter how long or how frequently we date one gender or another. 

If your sister says she’s bisexual, she knows best here. If she feels romantic feelings predominantly for girls, she’s still bisexual. If she marries a girl, she’s still bisexual. If she never touches a dude’s dick in her whole life, she is still bisexual.  

Lesbian relationships, gay relationships, straight relationships, even poly relationships, are not even remotely contrasting someone’s self identification as bisexual, because bisexuality means you like the same and other genders, or male and female genders, or male and female and other genders. Basically any possible dating activity from here on out she could be doing with other consenting adults is totally covered under ‘she said she was bisexual, so that’s what she’s being’. 

Goddamn. Go apologize to your sister for going and talking to a total stranger to try and get info to use to invalidate her identity.

“If I see three or four young black men walking down the street, I have to stop them and check their names. I want them to be afraid every time they see the police that they might get arrested.”

Chief Russell Mills to the LA Times after shooting and killing black 89-year-old great grandfather Shawn Monroe at a barbecue unprovoked. Today, he walks free with no charges, despite numerous witnesses and his own admission that he enjoys terrorizing black people.

Tell me again why Black people should be okay with police when they have, since the history of our being kidnapped to this fucking country, have not EVER been about protecting us, but about terrorizing us?

Police are NOT for Black people’s safety. They are about torturing us, terrorizing us and killing us. Period. There is no safety with police. There is no peace keeping with police. They have ALWAYS been a terror to the Black community and I am tired of this fact being pushed to the wayside.

(via sourcedumal)

And Ray Kelly, when he was Commissioner in NYC said the same thing.
Arpaio has said the same thing.
This is a ROUTINE assertion that the point of the police is to be an agent of state terror. And that such terror should be all but exclusively focused on Black and Brown bodies.

The Doorway Effect: Why your brain won’t let you remember what you were doing before you came in here

I work in a lab, and the way our lab is set up, there are two adjacent rooms, connected by both an outer hallway and an inner doorway. I do most of my work on one side, but every time I walk over to the other side to grab a reagent or a box of tips, I completely forget what I was after. This leads to a lot of me standing with one hand on the freezer door and grumbling, “What the hell was I doing?” It got to where all I had to say was “Every damn time” and my labmate would laugh. Finally, when I explained to our new labmate why I was standing next to his bench with a glazed look in my eyes, he was able to shed some light. “Oh, yeah, that’s a well-documented phenomenon,” he said. “Doorways wipe your memory.”

Being the gung-ho new science blogger that I am, I decided to investigate. And it’s true! Well, doorways don’t literally wipe your memory. But they do encourage your brain to dump whatever it was working on before and get ready to do something new. In one study, participants played a video game in which they had to carry an object either across a room or into a new room. Then they were given a quiz. Participants who passed through a doorway had more trouble remembering what they were doing. It didn’t matter if the video game display was made smaller and less immersive, or if the participants performed the same task in an actual room—the results were similar. Returning to the room where they had begun the task didn’t help: even context didn’t serve to jog folks’ memories.

The researchers wrote that their results are consistent with what they call an “event model” of memory. They say the brain keeps some information ready to go at all times, but it can’t hold on to everything. So it takes advantage of what the researchers called an “event boundary,” like a doorway into a new room, to dump the old info and start over. Apparently my brain doesn’t care that my timer has seconds to go—if I have to go into the other room, I’m doing something new, and can’t remember that my previous task was antibody, idiot, you needed antibody.

Read more at Scientific American, or the original study.

I finally learned why I completely space when I cross to the other side of the lab, and that I’m apparently not alone.

this is actually kind of great and it’s nice to know there’s something behind that constant spacing out whenever i enter a different place

FINALLY AN EXPLANATION
