Someone jumped to their death directly across the street from where I work today.
Their body landed on the ledge of the building in direct view of the lunch room. They covered the body in a orange tarp and then left it there for hours. At one point — when I was getting a glass of water — a cop lifted the tarp and I saw the body.
Then, when I was leaving work for the day, I was told someone threw themselves in front of the subway at my stop. Two suicides within a block radius within hours of each other.
British comedian Avery Edison (@aedison) was detained by Immigration officials at Pearson Airport last night. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to have any idea what to do with trans people. Begin horribleness.

I’m responsible for like a zillion dollars a year in advertising revenue, and it can be very stressful and not much fun.
I love my husband, but sometimes it feels like he lives a charmed life. I’m jealous because he gets to play and travel for his job. He’s away right now, staying at a luxury resort in the Rocky Mountains. Going on sleigh rides and having snowball fights for money.
West Virginia is the most neurotic state, Utah is the most agreeable and the folks of Wisconsin are the country’s most extroverted, a new study says. Take TIME’s test to find out which state most suits you
I got North Carolina.
Apparently all this time I should have been living in South Carolina…?!
You belong in California!
I am not a third generation (Southern) Californian for nothing, yo.
To stop or remove yourself from a situation where you have consumed a lot of alcohol and can’t remember if the word is “abort” or “deport” and then everyone laughs at you and proceeds to use the word for the rest of the day.
