this gives me life and inspires me to step up my lipstick game
Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

THAT LAST COMMENT
Unlike other bats who have lost the ability to move around on land, vampire bats can actually run on land. They use their forelimbs as a means of force. This ability evolved independently with the bat lineage.
lets stop calling middle aged people that are sexist and racist “traditional”
wow this is so true
Of course, as everything from our games to the fucked-up history of our social mores to our politics to our art tells you, if there’s one thing humans excel at, one thing that might actually separate us from other animals (although there may be counterexamples, I’d be fascinated to hear about them!), it’s that we are so excellent at treating the things we invent as if they were immutable facts of the universe.
(Which is to say I agree with Suzuki but I also kind of despair at our ability to actually, en masse, do anything along these lines?)
I agree with Suzuki and I agree with Ian.
I believe that there are far too many people that don’t understand that ideas evolve because there are far too many people that don’t believe that nature evolves. For example, here in the United States, too many people don’t recognize that the Founders didn’t expect the Constitution to be taken literally, as it was written in 1787; it’s an organic, living document. That’s why the Framers packaged it with a mechanism allowing for amendments. But people are instinctually repelled by change, even if it is changing something that we have created. And the key word is "instinctual" rather than "instinctive"; it’s not something we can’t do, it’s not something we don’t do, and it’s not something we haven’t done before — it’s something we choose not to do. It’s not natural, it’s learned. It’s not singular, it’s shared behavior. It’s also frightening because we are a society driven by the rule of the majority, and the thinking of the majority isn’t necessarily rational, reasonable, or what’s best for all.
Dude hasn’t even been charged with anything and has no legal fees or anything so he’s basically being paid almost half a million dollars for killing an unarmed black teen.
"Racism is dead" huh?
Racism is alive and well and 416,000$ richer.
what the actual fuck America
