‘Beyond reasonable doubt’: King Richard III’s remains found buried beneath England parking lot
He wore the English crown, but he ended up defeated, humiliated and reviled. Now things are looking up for King Richard III. Scientists announced Monday that they had found the monarch’s 500-year-old remains under a parking lot in the city of Leicester — a discovery Richard’s fans say will rewrite the history books.
University of Leicester researchers say tests on a battle-scarred skeleton unearthed last year prove “beyond reasonable doubt” that it is the king, who died at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485, and whose remains have been missing for centuries.
“Richard III, the last Plantaganet King of England, has been found,” said the university’s deputy registrar, Richard Taylor. (AP Photo/ University of Leicester)
This and the commercials are the only reasons I’m going to watch the Superbowl this year. Go 49ers!
I can understand your sentiment, but nope. Go Ravens! :D
I nominate Joss Whedon to direct the new Star Wars movie and Nathan Fillion to be Han Solo.
So really what you’re asking for is more Firefly.

[TRIGGER WARNING FOR GRAPHIC DOMESTIC VIOLENCE]
I sincerely hope that they aren’t aware of the reports last year that he beat up his girlfriend so badly he broke her nose, made her blow out her kneecap, and burst an ovarian cyst. If they know and still think he’s lovely, then I am deeply concerned.
Here’s the report.
Fuck it. I was just starting to really get into the Charles/Erik thing. Oh well, at least I still have the Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan versions to cling to, and frankly, I like them better anyway.
It is amazing how many women lose their jobs and careers over just having consensual sex (and to an extent, trans folk of whatever gender and non-binary folk) or being out about their completely harmless identities, but all these (cis) heterosexual guys don’t take even a hit on their careers when they turn out to be abusive douchefucks who do unconscionable, violent things and beat up women and all sorts of shit.
And by amazing, I mean, Brought to You By the Letter P for Patriarchy.
Date yourself. Take yourself out to eat. Don’t share your popcorn at the movies with anyone. Stroll around an art museum alone. Fall in love with canvases. Fall in love with yourself.

Teachers are often unaware of the gender distribution of talk in their classrooms. They usually consider that they give equal amounts of attention to girls and boys, and it is only when they make a tape recording that they realize that boys are dominating the interactions.
Dale Spender, an Australian feminist who has been a strong advocate of female rights in this area, noted that teachers who tried to restore the balance by deliberately ‘favouring’ the girls were astounded to find that despite their efforts they continued to devote more time to the boys in their classrooms. Another study reported that a male science teacher who managed to create an atmosphere in which girls and boys contributed more equally to discussion felt that he was devoting 90 per cent of his attention to the girls. And so did his male pupils. They complained vociferously that the girls were getting too much talking time.
In other public contexts, too, such as seminars and debates, when women and men are deliberately given an equal amount of the highly valued talking time, there is often a perception that they are getting more than their fair share. Dale Spender explains this as follows:
The talkativeness of women has been gauged in comparison not with men but with silence. Women have not been judged on the grounds of whether they talk more than men, but of whether they talk more than silent women.
In other words, if women talk at all, this may be perceived as ‘too much’ by men who expect them to provide a silent, decorative background in many social contexts. This may sound outrageous, but think about how you react when precocious children dominate the talk at an adult party. As women begin to make inroads into formerly ‘male’ domains such as business and professional contexts, we should not be surprised to find that their contributions are not always perceived positively or even accurately.
I have been thinking about this a lot lately, probably bc I don’t feel like I get “heard” at work.
Well, this neatly explains why I continue to be passed over for promotions at work and am treated as if I complain too much — despite working for a company that claims to be “for women”.
