Alleged harassment of 11-year-old at brony con raises troubling questions

kick-neckbeard-ass:

The whole article is a good read, but this stood out to me:

"Despite SAC anime claims, there are many aspects of this story that don’t add up. Regardless, either way, I am suggesting to the our Con Chair, Sonya [Hipper], to ban SAC anime from ever having a booth at our con again. Reporting an endangered child should be common sense and there is no room for organizations who can not make that distinction. Thank you for your time.”

Someone states that a Brony harassed children at your con? Clearly, the best course of action is to ban them! … for the safety of children, of course, not because they made us look like pedophile-enablers! (But keeping them quiet about any further fuck-ups our con does is a good side-bonus, right?)

BABSCon is banning people who try to make them look bad, and it just makes them look more guilty. SacAnime has been around for ten years, and suddenly they’re being treated like they’re some rinky-dink booth that would make up shit for attention? You don’t think their allegations should be given some consideration, instead of immediately jumping to ‘sounds fake, ur banned’? Are you fucking kidding me?

THIS SHIT IS WHY PEOPLE HATE BRONIES. BECAUSE BRONIES ARE MORE CONCERNED WITH ‘LOOKING CLEAN’ THAN ACTUALLY BEING CLEAN.

Disneyworld needs to make a rollercoaster based off of the ride Yzma and Kronk take to the lair. When the ride starts, Yzma’s voice yells “pull the lever, Kronk!” and the ride starts to move backwards so she yells “wrong lever!” and it shoots you forward.

WHY IS THIS NOT HAPPENING?!

Please consider emailing Time magazine at feedback@time.com to get them to reconsider not putting Laverne Cox on their list. She overwhelmingly got voted in at 91.5%, but was not put on there. Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood had 25% of the vote and was put on there.
The erasure of trans*women, and women of color needs to stop. Ms. Cox does nothing but good work.

Even the shortest, quickest email!  Just do it!

We now know that 24 hours without sleep, or a week of sleeping four or five hours a night induces an impairment equivalent to a blood alcohol level of .1 percent. We would never say, ‘This person is a great worker! He’s drunk all the time!’ yet we continue to celebrate people who sacrifice sleep for work.

"waves are not measured in feet and inches, but in increments of fear." — buzzy trent, big wave surfing pioneer

pe’ahi, known colloquially as jaws, is home to one of the largest surf breaks in the world, with waves reaching heights of sixty feet (some even twice that). before laird hamilton (third photo) came up with tow in surfing, this reef break, located on maui’s north shore, was inaccessible to surfers.

when wiping out at places like jaws, where the water is deep, a breaking wave can push fallen surfers fifty feet below the surface, causing their eardrums to burst from the water pressure. they also risk drowning from oncoming waves crashing down on them before they can reorient themselves from the violent underwater spinning and swim to the surface for air.

you can watch garrett mcnamara (second and seventh photos), who in january of 2013 surfed a record setting 98 foot wave at nazare, talk about how scared he was to first surf jaws, and how he caught his most memorable wave there. (he also explains how the toilet helps him surf better.)

Parts Unknown: the Great Blue Heron and white color morph

In this watercolor Audubon portrayed the white morph, which at that time was considered a separate species, the Great White Heron (Ardea occidentalis). After seeing this pale morph of the Great Blue Heron for the first time and capturing several alive, Audubon painted this watercolor in the Florida Keys in 1832. He took a few of the birds, which thrive in captivity, to Charleston for his friend the Reverend John Bachman. They proved to be hungry and aggressive, not only ingesting buckets of mullets but also attacking chickens, ducks, cats, and even young children. JJA set his scene where the species likes to feed, on the beach, the air pregnant with tropical humidity. In the background are the waterfront buildings of Key West, for which George Lehman painted a finished watercolor for engraving in the Havell plate. With this amazingly innovative depiction Audubon has captured the awkward movement when the bird has just seized a fish with its broad bill and begins to straighten up from fishing posture in order to swallow it. Occasionally these birds die attempting to gulp down a fish that is too large.

I have to remind myself and the angry fandom side of tumblr about this periodically or this damn website might implode

FUN STORY TIME

Warner Bros. Animation studios was one of the first, if not the first, major media producers to be introduced to, and subsequently effected by, internet “nerd” culture.

Tiny Toon Adventures was on television around the time the internet started to gain popularity, and Warner Bros. found themselves the unwilling targets of various letters and emails from several people in the furry fandom (which, before this point, had been mostly unheard of), requesting naked pictures of Babs Bunny and other characters. One dude in particular sent scores of letters to Tress MacNielle, Babs’ voice actress, describing sexual acts that he wanted to do to the characters she voiced. It became such a problem that Tress began cancelling appearances and soon lost interest in working on Tiny Toons altogether. The show was canceled not long after that.

The man who continually harassed Tress became the inspiration and base model for the “obsessed internet nerd” trope character that would appear at the end of the final episode of Tiny Toons (as “the most frightening thing in the world”), as well as in future shows, such as Animaniacs.

Pssst, Hey Extremist Bronies…. c’mere….. come closer. *puts an arm on your shoulder and pats sympathetically* see this story? See this here? Keep up your lewd shit and you’re not going to have ANYTHING left.

There, fixed it for you.
