I’m pretty sure you guys aren’t racist, and ingratiating yourselves to idiotic Tumblr race-baiters isn’t going to make you any less racist anyway. Jeez.
There are around 20-30 folks tomorrow who are going to be reminded how damn lucky they are to know me.
And what you all got for your lesser-of-two-evil shenanigans is George Bush with slightly more skin pigmentation.

Patients of nazi surgeon Harold Gillies during WWI & WWII.
Another tumblr misinformation.
and in fact, the real story is kinda cooler than this tumblr myth.
harold gillies was in fact a surgeon, but he was not a nazi and these are not nazi experiments, but early plastic surgery cases. the bottom left and right photos are actually the same man, a former soldier who was injured. the bottom right is the before and the bottom left is after a very early skin grafting procedure. the top right and middle center are both intermediate stages of skin grafting. in order to perform a procedure that involved grafting with skin flaps, he pioneered ways to get those skin grafts. today they use things like sub-dermal balloons but at the time they did things such as stitching forehead skin to an arm to get more for the graft.
you can see some of the techniques here
this has links to videos of early rhinoplasty, a forehead skin flap to fix a nose and a skin flap via arm grafting.
He was a pretty cool guy from the sound of things, not a nazi and in fact, pioneered the earliest gender reassignment surgeries.
That is really interesting, actually. I had no idea. My favorite Tumblr myth is the Rambo granny, though.
Star Trek Into Darkness writer apologises for 'gratuitous' underwear scene - Telegraph -
Two points on this:
First, thank you for the gratuitous underwear scene. That actress is absolutely gorgeous and I think the vast majority of us fully enjoyed her magnificent form.
Secondly, if I can flip on a television and see Hannibal Lecter cooking and eating identifiable body parts, none of you has a leg to stand on with complaints about a beautiful woman in her underoos. Grow the fuck up with your puritanical hypocrisy.
Just because you’re offended doesn’t mean you’re right, people.

Would anyone be surprised?
You know what would be awesome? Yeah, if “disaster relief bills” were 100% about disaster relief for pertinent disasters, instead of places for congressmen to sneak pork project money to their states.
Maybe then we wouldn’t have to debate for weeks and rewrite the bill a million times before passing it.
Probably a troll, but what the heck. (I don’t know you, but it’s difficult to take a person seriously that is proudly gay as well as a fan of Ann Coulter. But then again, we’re on Tumblr.)
As it is, I’d very much call demanding spending cuts in exchange for hurricane relief ‘holding a disaster relief hostage’. Pork may very well have been at issue, but Republicans never made disaster relief political over pork until the teabaggers came along. They love to spend as much as anyone, and have only changed their tune since becoming the minority party and realizing that Americans have the short-term memory of a goldfish. (Or are you trying to say that writing an ethical appropriations bill is beyond Congressional Republicans’ capabilities? It’s possible, I suppose.)
You didn’t have Republicans or Democrats making crazy demands like this in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, after all. (Though, admittedly, there were many things that were never politicized before Obama came along, like the debt ceiling, which was raised without controversy what… seventeen times for President Bush?)
Proud, gay, and conservative you may be, but it does you no favors to ignore parts of the narrative that aren’t favorable or try to spin them so shamelessly when there’s an abundance of articles substantiating my point. (Though it’s nice to see that you feel enough guilt about this nonsense to try and lie about it. That’s more than can be said for Eric Cantor.)
And it does your party no favors to parrot cold-blooded ideas like holding hurricane relief hostage for political games, which is partly why they’re spending so much money trying to convince people they aren’t heartless assholes.
Would anyone be surprised?
The biggest baddass (both literally and figuratively) in all of Westeros.

if you have no qualms about posting IP addresses and personal info then you have absolutely no right to complain that your public posts being reblogged on a public website is harassment
If you post IP addresses and personal info, you are a hypocritical asshole. There are far too many instances of the wrong peoples’ info being posted to justify this crap. (The most notorious being Spike Lee posting the address for the wrong George Zimmerman on Twitter and painting a target on the back of an innocent elderly couple in Sanford.)
