3 Ways to Speak English.

Jamila Lyiscott is a “tri-tongued orator;” in her powerful spoken-word essay “Broken English,” she celebrates — and challenges — the three distinct flavors of English she speaks with her friends, in the classroom and with her parents. As she explores the complicated history and present-day identity that each language represents, she unpacks what it means to be “articulate.”

Whites riot over pumpkins in NH and Twitter turns it into epic lesson about Ferguson, aka Black Twitter Wins Again (with some nice Ally Assists), aka The Best of #PumpkinFest, PT 2. #staywoke

A lot of people seem to have missed this post, thus the whole point of the PumpkinFest commentary on Twitter.

Not that being poly ensures a drama-free life EITHER, but it’s nice to know your options instead of unnecessarily ending beautiful relationships

I know most people tend to lean monogamous and for them, they do have to choose because they don’t have whatever lets them be with more than one person (this life ain’t for everybody), but for myself watching movies, I no longer relate to “The One” kind of tropes, which seem to be in every movie ever.

These handmade fabric moths by Yumi Okita are “inspired from realism of nature then manipulated into the world of imagination”. They can be found (when they’re not sold out) at her Esty store

The Mystical World Of Mushrooms Captured In Photos

Most people consider mushrooms to be the small, ugly cousins of the plant kingdom, but theirs is  surprisingly beautiful and wonderful world waiting to be explored. These beautiful mushrooms, captured by enthusiastic nature photographers, are a far cry from the ones you find in the woods or your local grocery store.

Most mushrooms, as we know them, are actually just the reproductive structure of the fungus they belong to – their fungal networks expand far further underground, and some fungi don’t even sprout the sort of mushrooms that we’re used to seeing. In fact, depending on your definition of “organism,” the largest living organism in the world is a fungus – there’s a honey mushroom colony in Oregon that occupies about 2,000 acres of land!
