This Makes Me Feel Good For Some Reason


Someone has to look out for the Koi fish.

Everyone should know, in the 70s Nichelle Nichols went to NASA and asked why there weren’t black astronauts in the pipeline, and they said, “Come recruit for us.”  And she did.

“From the late 1970’s until the late 1980’s, NASA employed Nichelle Nichols to recruit new astronaut candidates. Many of her new recruits were women or members of racial and ethnic minorities, including Guion Bluford (the first African-American astronaut), Sally Ride (the first female American astronaut), Judith Resnik (one of the original set of female astronauts, who perished during the launch of the Challenger on January 28, 1986), and Ronald McNair (the second African-American astronaut, and another victim of the Challenger accident).“

Love these stories. We all need to be making an effort to spread more positivity around our corner of da Internetz.

I do what I can in these dark times. Promise me your nation of maniacs take some of their World Cup disappointment out on the Idiot Trump when he visits. He really is a hump.

We'll survive - and there's still the "third place pay-off" tomorrow (against Belgium).

The sooner The Rump's out of our country the better.
