Star Trek speaks to us of a reality where we are explorers, peacekeepers, and visionaries, a reality where we conduct ourselves with grace and intent. It tells us to be optimists, and to see the fundamental light at the heart of our being. And it encourages us to keep striving, and keep reaching, for we have no limits, not even in the stars. That is why Star Trek is one of the greatest stories ever told.

“Hog-spitting – not just spitting,” Tonja Bulley emphatically clarifies.

“He just hog-spit at my baby. He hog-spit. He took everything out of him and spit in my daughter’s face. She is a minor. That’s the absolute worst thing you can do, when you spit on another human being. She was just saying ‘No justice, no peace’ and he hog-spit (at) and then smacked my baby. At that time — there was no more being peaceful.”

Bulley and her daughter, Brandy were released from jail last night after being arrested by police outside the St. Louis Rams game the previous day after a violent clash with football fans.

As the Rams were completing an impressive 28-26 victory over the Super Bowl champions Seattle Seahawks, Tonja and Brandy were outside the stadium participating in a non-violent protest calling for justice for Mike Brown, and the immediate arrest of his killer, Darren Wilson.

Tonja, known affectionately to her friends as “Tiny,” continued:

“We were peacefully protesting. We were saying something that this big, tall White man did not like. He should’ve been locked up, and they did not lock him up. One slapped my daughter and another hit her with his fist. Another woman threw her drink on me – and I retaliated. I’m not coming out to fight, but I have the right to protect myself.”

Tiny would eventually get punched and knocked to the ground. “I got hit by a couple people. I have a mark behind my ear.” She was initially charged with two felonies for throwing punches after the initial altercation. No violent Rams fans were arrested.

She says the racial double-standards were apparent: “We had a right to protest without anybody interfering. When the White people protest, there are no problems. Nobody is spitting on them. When we try to do it, the media goes around and acts like we started (the fighting.) We did not start it. I peacefully protest every day in Ferguson, and it’s never a problem.”

In Ferguson, Tiny and Brandy have been protesting since Brown was killed in August, and have become unofficial members of the Lost Voices—a spirited and well-known group of young leaders who led Sunday’s protest.

hmm, yoga is kind of girly #nohomo let’s rename it so it sounds manlier and make it just for the bros for the bros only

WHY DO MEN NEED TO REBRAND EVERYTHING TOUCHED BY WOMEN?
SIT DOWN AND EAT YOUR YOGURT AND SALAD AND DO YOUR YOGA

FOLLOW UP YOUR INTENSE BROGA SESSION WITH SOME BROGURT AND A BRAH-LAD

I have a serious problem and personal vendetta with renamed shit because boys are too fragile and scared to use a word that already exists for what they’re doing/using. 
Manscara and Guy-liner? No one is fooled you are litereally wearing make up just OWN IT
Bromance? I know this has a slightly different definition than its original source but come ON
Mangagement Ring? seriously
Man Cave? That’s not even a portmanteau it’s just a stupid-ass name for a den
Soap…FOR MEN/Shampoo…FOR MEN because being clean is for GIRLS
Mangria because fruity alcohol is obviously only for girls and Adam Carolla knows how to market to idiots
I mean are you seriously that scared of femininity that EVERYTHING that could be even close to being associated with a feminine activity must have a name that has more wieners associated with it? 
Such scaredy pissbabies I don’t even understand

Scarface is a Singapore celebrity with a huge head, covered in numerous scars from fights with other street cats, which is how he got his name in the first place. Scarface had to be removed from the original locality where he lived due to numerous complaints from human inhabitants regarding the noise he made when indulging in his gangster activities. He was rescued and treated for the wounds on his face. Once healed, his photos were posted to Facebook, where he quickly amassed a large fan following. Fondly known as Scar, his page says his favourite activities include eating, sleeping and bullying the dog. His scars have not deterred him and he has participated in several pageants and has also been featured in several magazines.
