Why we should use SAGA (Sexuality And Gender Acceptance) as the new term for the LGBT community:
It’s easy to say
It includes everyone without having 3 billion letters in the acronym
Saga means “a long story of heroic achievement” which is an excellent way to describe the movement
It sounds hella cool

I like the term, but it makes more sense to use for the movement itself than for the community - since it describes ideas, not people.
For a way of actually describing the community with a term more inclusive than LGBT, I want to bring up GSM, since it refers to minorities as a whole rather than listing them off individually. Of course, now that I’m looking into the term, I’m noticing that the even more inclusive GSRM has been proposed (Gender, Sexual, and Romantic Minorities), which is a reminder that even this approach still has to list categories rather than being a shortcut to everything. But GSRM is a hell of a lot less clunky than any equally-inclusive LGBT extension.
(Also in retrospect this is an area where SAGA falls short. I don’t know how to fix that.)

Im pretty sure I walk past a lot more cops than that



Yeah, because you know, there are no good cops, and every cop that has ever existed, and will ever exist, is a racist, cold-blooded murderer that deserves to be executed.It’s crazy to think that there could be a possibility of cops that are law-abiding and law-enforcing people who do their best to uphold higher accountability upon themselves and to serve as someone who protects and serve everybody regardless of who they are.

Never trust an organic chemist…

Back in college, we once managed to ether the entire lab. The school had just had work done on the lab, including the fume hoods. The hoods were making wonderful “whoooooosh” noises but apparently not actually removing fumes.
So we had 30 students, diligently working away and keeping the ether under the non-working fume hoods. A grad student walked in and suddenly had the strangest expression on his face. He vanished and came back with the prof, who’d been in the other lab. The prof had been a WWII flying ace and didn’t even flinch. He just calmly ordered us all to leave the building and assemble on the lawn.  
Organic chemistry was a series of misadventures where “that could have killed us” was often uttered.
