DashCon is pretty much EXACTLY what I imagine an official EA fanclub meeting to be like, including Emilie herself collecting money in giant bags because REASONS.
In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.
The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.
He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.
and old Apple computers
the apple was a rainbow
Reblogging again because more people need to know about Turing dammit.
who cares lmfao!!!!
What did they tell him!!! What can we tell him to make him cry harder
OKAY, HOLD THE FUCK UP.
THIS IS WHAT THE MEDIA DOES TO POSTS AND SUCH.
YOU PEOPLE ARE LAUGHING AT THIS MAN. WHY. BECAUSE HE WAS BROUGHT TO TEARS? I’M SURE IF THIS MAN WAS GAY, YOU’D BE ALL OVER IT.
YOU’RE NOT GETTING THE WHOLE STORY.
THIS MAN ASKED HIS FOLLOWERS ON SOCIAL MEDIA A QUESTION WHEN HE SAW THAT HE HAD QUITE A LOT OF LGBT FOLLOWERS. HE SAID, “IF YOU COULD CHOOSE WHETHER TO BE GAY OR STRAIGHT, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?”
AND THE RESPONSES MOVED HIM. THEY FUCKING MOVED HIM. THAT’S WHY HIS CRYING. I’M SORRY, BUT IF YOU PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SHIT ON HIM WITHOUT GETTING THE WHOLE STORY, I CAN’T TALK TO YOU.
HIS QUOTES ARE LITERALLY:
"Sorry, guys… It’s just… It’s sad."
"So, don’t take my word for any of this. Listen to them."
"And if you think being Gay is a choice, and you want to hide behind the Bible, show me the verse where God says being gay is a choice."
HERE IS THE ARTICLE
AND HERE IS THE VIDEO
I, AS A LESBIAN, AM FUCKING DISAPPOINTED IN YOU PEOPLE WHO ARE GIVING HIM SHIT.
IN THE VIDEO,
HE FUCKING SAYS “This video is about a kid who came out to his parents, and their… Their response was horrific.”
THIS MAN IS SOMEONE WHO CARES
AND THIS MAN IS SOMEONE YOU’RE HATING ON .
GET THE WHOLE FUCKING STORY BEFORE YOU DECIDE WHO YOU INSULT. AND, MOST OF ALL, JUST KEEP YOUR SHIT TO YOURSELF UNLESS YOU’RE 100% SURE YOU WANT TO SAY IT.
/// rant over.
I hate the way some people preach about equality and treating everyone with respect but it’s deemed perfectly okay to insult and judge every single white male there is out there just because he is white and male, without even knowing the person inside.
Double standards at its finest.
Chris is a fantastic human being. Don’t judge a book by its cover.

Aaaand more lies.
This woman is just HORRIBLE. She’s a complete hypocrite, manipulates everyone, always goes back on her word, and then pulls the victim card whenever people call her out so she can continue to be horrible.
The gaming industry is full of inventive, successful, and intelligent women. Why is so much attention being giving to Zoe Quinn, who’s basically just a professional victim?
Meet Tama the Station Master of the Kishi Train Station in Kinokawa City, Wakayama, Japan.
A cat with a job? How?
The story begins in 2003, when a small railway company on the verge of collapse merged with another railway to form Wakayama Electric Railway. As often happens in these business deals, big changes would have to be made. Things cut, people let go; restructuring and redesign from top to bottom.
Seeing as the already failing company was losing riders at a reported 5% annually there wasn’t much to let go of. The train station was doing so poorly is was leasing out property to small businesses to help pay its expenses.
As part of the restructuring plan, those small business which had helped keep the station going, were told to vacate the property to make room for new construction. One of those businesses was a small cat shelter run by one little old lady.
Facing eviction, the woman was desperate to save the cats, who had nowhere to go. So, at the grand opening of the new railway line she took little Tama with her and went to plead with CEO Mitsunobu Kojima to let the cats stay at the station.
But when Mitsunobu saw Tama no words needed to be even spoken. He immediately fell in love with her. Imagine that. A businessman with a soft side… for cats. A dog lover at that.
“The moment I met eyes with Tama, I was immediately struck with an image of Tama as station master,” Mitsunobu Kojima
So he appointed Tama the first feline Station Master of Kishi Station, and gave her and her furry friends a permanent home at the station.
Crazy idea? Maybe. But since Tama was appointed Station Master ridership rose 10% in its first year and thanks to all the visitors looking to catch a glimpse of Tama, the station’s visitor center actually made a profit of 1.1 billion yen in its first quarter.
Now that’s one lucky cat.
