Has anyone been to a bar called the Silk Road somewhere in the CBD? I’ve seen photos on the webz and it looks really nice! If y’all have been and have some info on it (price range, dress code, clientèle, music), please PM me. Or reblog, whatever you prefer.

If it’s the one…

Don’t ever feel offended if I don’t answer your asks or anons or memes. I’m not ignoring you. I would never ignore anybody on purpose. Either tumblr ate them or I had every intention to and I just forgot. 

So this is basically a reminder that I’m human and a terrible one at that so don’t hate me for my flaws because I have a lot of them.

Correcting Internet DisInformation: The American Space Pen / The Russian Pencil

thank you for this.

And then from his initial investment of >$1,000,000, the Fisher Pen Co. was able to make a lot of money and grow the overall size of the U.S. economy and create lots of jobs.
So essentially a story that is supposed to be about government inefficiency turns out to be a story about how the U.S. government worked with a private company to make space travel safer while also stimulating economic growth.
The moral of the story is not that the Soviet Union was more efficient. The moral of the story is that by failing to allow private investment in innovation, the Soviet Union was doomed.
Incidentally, Paul Fisher, who invented the Fisher space pen, was a fascinating guy. He had this plan to eliminate income and property taxes with a progressive asset tax and even ran for President. And the Fisher Space Pen Co. is still a going concern, still employing people, and still generating a return on Fisher’s million-dollar investment.

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (KABC) — A transgender teen has been elected homecoming queen at a high school in Huntington Beach.
Friday was homecoming for the Marina High School Vikings. It was a big game for the football team, but the players weren’t the only ones hoping to end the night victorious.
Cassidy Lynn Campbell was one of five students in the running for homecoming queen. She’s the school’s first transgender teen nominated to the court. Up until this year, she lived life as Lance Campbell.
A YouTube video of Campbell shows the transformation she makes daily in order to look how she feels inside. Fellow students have been supportive and many of them voted for Campbell to be this year’s homecoming queen.
"I think it’s really cool how we allowed her to run, and I just think it’s a really good thing," said student Kelsey Callanan.
Campbell received the most votes to earn the crown — a crown she didn’t think was within reach, but now wears with her head held high.
"I wasn’t doing this for me. I was doing this for so many others, so many others around the nation," said Campbell.
Her mother, Christine Campbell, is very proud.
"I never would have thought in my lifetime that I would see this. It’s wonderful. She really did it," Christine Campbell said.
Cassidy Campbell says she has dealt with some negativity since she decided to run for homecoming queen. She says it’s all fueled by ignorance.
"They think that I’m just a boy doing this for fun, and I’m just a boy dressing up as a girl and trying to win a crown when that is completely the opposite of what it is," she said. "I’ve always seen myself as a girl."
She hopes her courage will inspire other transgender teens to live life without hiding who they are.
"If this could help one child or more, or hundreds or thousands or millions, then it was more than worth it," she said.

This is so amazing and it gives me so much hope. I’m so happy/proud for her!

This just gave me goosebumps. I love it.

Thank God it wasn’t a Carrie reenactment… So proud of her.
