30 mosques in 30 days? Two friends find that Muslims are as diverse as America itself.

Hopefully not just as diverse of the US but the world.

Simply captioned “Seen in Gaza” shows two Palestinian men in Gaza overlooking their city, which was destroyed by an Israeli attack.

Humans of Palestine aims at restoring the humanity often stripped away when Palestinians are reduced to calculative deaths, forgettable names, and mutilated bodies, rather than people with stories and dreams.

Reports of Russian military moving across the border into Ukraine caused a Twitter avalanche.

As the first reports of Russian troops taking over new frontiers along the border appeared, Twitter and other social networks started sounding the alarm as users tried to decide how to raise awareness of the incursion.

(via For the short people among us, Uniqlo’s clothes come to the rescue — for now | Public Radio International)

This is the main reason why I like Uniqlo and why almost everything I own is from that store. (This is going to sound like a bigger deal than it actually is.) I’ve written again and again how fucking irritating and insulting it is to go to store after store that doesn’t give a fuck about 5’2” dudes. I really used to give a shit about clothing until my laziness and financial limitations got in the way. Why should I have to a) struggle to find something that comes close to fitting and to b) pay for significant alterations because I happen to possess an undesirable frame. I really dislike it when people say to just eat it and get alterations just to get it to fit decently. I consider alterations necessary for perfection, a luxury. And fuck the kids section. Children’s clothing is typically not designed to last long because children usually grow and the items aren’t expected to be used for too long. I like to grow attached to my things and really break them in. I wish I could just opt out of that entire clothes shopping experience. The one sensible path I can see and have wanted to explore but have been too afraid to invest in, is to just do it myself. Or I could just stick to looking like I got shat out of a gutter because that honestly reflects my personality.
