    shoutout to people working weekends and overnights and overtime, people working in hospitality and retail and food service, who are sacrificing time with their loved ones, so fuckers with weekday desk jobs get to live comfortably with the amenities we provide while simultaneously shitting all over us for not getting “real jobs”

    Hundreds of Colorado students are fighting back against dangerous text book changes

    A Colorado school district has come under fire for trying to change its history curriculum — and its own students have schooled it on what real American history is.

    Earlier this month, the school district of Jefferson County, Colo. — the second-largest district in the state — announced it was considering a change to the Advanced Placement U.S. history curriculum to “promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free-market system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights” and not “encourage or condone civil disorder, social strike or disregard of the law.”

    If the proposal passes, the district’s conservative-majority school board would establish a committee to review textbooks and other classroom materials to see if they meet this new criteria. In other words, any textbook that didn’t seem “patriotic enough” (an aggressively arbitrary and potentially very dangerous label) would be cut. 

    So teachers and students walked out | Follow micdotcom

    A Buff Man From Australia Shows Off His Adequately Sized … Turtle … For A Really Important Cause

    The Great Barrier Reef is worth nearly $6 billion to Australia’s tourism industry. But more importantly, it’s priceless when it comes to the health of our oceans. And yet, threats from coal ports, dredging, climate change, and more could end up destroying this natural wonder. So kudos to the good folks at GetUp! for doing something creative about it.

    P.S. This dude has some serious abs for a comedian. Just sayin’.
