Has this been done?
I feel like the barista community needed our own version of this text post phenomenon.
get your dirty greasy fingers off the nice clean barrel you fucking casual
It’s important that people see this
I dont even know who this is, but the media pulls shit like this often and it should be publicized.
Oh for fucks sake
He was a known drug dealer and violent gang member
He resisted arrest with a fucking handgun
Everyone says it was racially motivated but… a notorious criminal comes at you with a gun you’re not going to stand by, regardless of race

"Last year, in total, British police officers actually fired their weapons three times. The number of people fatally shot was zero. In 2012 the figure was just one. Even after adjusting for the smaller size of Britain’s population, British citizens are around 100 times less likely to be shot by a police officer than Americans. Between 2010 and 2014 the police force of one small American city, Albuquerque in New Mexico, shot and killed 23 civilians; seven times more than the number of Brits killed by all of England and Wales’s 43 forces during the same period.
The explanation for this gap is simple. In Britain, guns are rare. Only specialist firearms officers carry them; and criminals rarely have access to them. The last time a British police officer was killed by a firearm on duty was in 2012, in a brutal case in Manchester. The annual number of murders by shooting is typically less than 50. Police shootings are enormously controversial. The shooting of Mark Duggan, a known gangster, which in 2011 started riots across London, led to a fiercely debated inquest. Last month, a police officer was charged with murder over a shooting in 2005. The reputation of the Metropolitan Police’s armed officers is still barely recovering from the fatal shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes, an innocent Brazilian, in the wake of the 7/7 terrorist bombings in London.
In America, by contrast, it is hardly surprising that cops resort to their weapons more frequently. In 2013, 30 cops were shot and killed—just a fraction of the 9,000 or so murders using guns that happen each year. Add to that a hyper-militarised police culture and a deep history of racial strife and you have the reason why so many civilians are shot by police officers. Unless America can either reduce its colossal gun ownership rates or fix its deep social problems, shootings of civilians by police—justified or not—seem sure to continue."

I was pleasantly surprised by this :>
OH fffsldfj my child hood just got a little harder
This is really cute.

Your daily dose of Myoviridae TEM images:
Here’s a nice picture of some Myoviridae phage which infect Salmonella. Generally in the phage world, there are three more common families although others have been found:
- Siphoviridae with long flexible tails. (P2 above)
- Myoviridae with long contractile tails (T4 above)
- Podoviridae with short non-contractile tails. (P22 above)
Phage are first classified based on their morphologies, but bioinformatic information shows the relationships between the families. Typically families of phage are grouped on their appearance as a large amount of the phage genome goes into making the structural proteins.
Myoviridae are quite interesting in the sense that when they bind their host, there are large visible structural changes in the tail region. The tail sheath contracts and the DNA is transported from the head into the bacterium. Other less visible mechanisms are present in the other two morphology types too.
I’m also worried about all that radiation coming from Japan and fucking up the Pacific ocean, especially on my state’s coast. Starfish are turning into sludge.
I repeat…STARFISH. ARE MELTING.
At least I won’t be the only one with cancer. The entire west coast and all of Japan can join me!
hahahaha…ha…This kind of anxiety is literally killing me.
I’m just gonna say- The radiation coming from the fukishima plant leak in Japan is basically harmless. You’ll get a higher dose of (still harmless) radiation from eating 20 bananas than you would from swimming in the contaminated water. By the time this radiation has crossed the pacific and been dispersed throughout the food chain, it is almost non-existent. As for the causes of “Seastar Wasting Syndrome” (I shit you not thats what its called), I actually did a study into the link between radiation and the disease. And there isn’t one. Whilst we don’t know what does cause it, radiation can pretty much be ruled out, especially that from nuclear power plants.
