One of the reasons I love Brooklyn Nine Nine so much is because it’s so feel-good. Shows lately are so dark and gritty, killing people off for shock value, simple miscommunications getting dragged out into massive fights, people being petty and vindictive… meanwhile B99 has supportive relationships and characters apologizing when they fuck up! They all make fun of each other but they truly love each other and are 100% ready to fight for each other. 

Brooklyn Nine Nine is so pure and good and I love it so much.

Emojis were supposed to be the great equalizer: a language all its own capable of transcending borders and cultural differences.

Not so fast, say a group of researchers who found that different people had vastly different interpretations of some popular emojis. The researchers published their findings for GroupLens, a research lab based out of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

“I think some people thought that they could use [emojis] with little risk and what we found is that it actually is at high risk of miscommunication,” Hannah Miller, a Ph.D. student at the University of Minnesota and one of the authors of the study, said in a phone interview.
