Tbh I’m drunk to the point where I just poked myself in the eye while trying to eat a slice of pizza and I’m just more impressed at how that could even happen than ashamed.

My dad’s now insisting I get a gun and a concealed carry permit and I’m not sure if I’d like having either around.

I don’t know, just hoping all of this will die down overnight and everyone can get a bit off edge.

earthstory:

Watermelon tourmalineWe recently shared a multicoloured crystal of the complex boro-silicate mineral tourmaline (seehttp://tinyurl.com/mmtsbdd) in which the hues were distributed along the long axis of the crystal. Many readers will be familiar with the other variety, in which the colour change from the centre out. When the shades are pink and green, this variety is commonly named after the eponymous fruit that it resembles. This red and blue 9 gram crystal comes from the pegmatite fields of Minas Gerais in Brasil, that Mecca for gem lovers worldwide. The chemical conditions of growth changed between the formation of the core and the rind, possibly with a large interval of time in between.LozImage credit: M.W. Minerals

holy fucking shit, did you catch his licence plate?! or did you catch his face or anything because wow…. glad you’re safe though

Caught his face, yeah. White guy, about 6’, shaved head.

But his license plate was mostly covered by a Redskins emblem and an Army sticker on the front bumper so that’s about all I was able to get. Couldn’t make out the model of his car due to weaving through traffic to get away from while not hitting other people so I can’t exactly get the police on him, either.

I’m ok now, though. More shocked that some people let road rage go that far than anything else.

Especially since he was the one who almost caused the fucking accident to begin with.
