From “The Clinton Tapes” by Taylor Branch (despit the sensational name it is a totally legit source, since Branch periodically went to talk to Bill during his presidency and hey taped convos with Bill’s blessing), another confirmation that Hillary does have a collection of frog statues. 🐸

podcast recs for the types

ENTP: Lovett or Leave It

Basically Pod Save America, but with more Jon Lovett and more jokes at the expense of Ted Cruz. A juggernaut. 

INTP: Pod Save America

Basically Lovett or Leave It, but with actual news.

INTJ: Pod Save The World

What? A news/politics podcast that isn’t America-centered?

INFJ: Radiolab

A classic. Typical deep, philosophical INFJ shit that makes you reconsider your entire life, but an episode only comes out once every seven years on the first blood moon of September at 9:43PM.

ENTJ: On The Media

Actually a pretty cool analysis of media-bias and the relationship between the press and the White House. 

INFP: 99% Invisible

A look at minor, random events that have been forgotten throughout history.

ISFP: S-Town

Be prepared to cry and rethink everything. 

ESTJ: More Perfect

Radiolab spin off that takes a look at the most monumental supreme court cases. Will also make you cry.

ISFJ: StoryCorps

Conversations, between people, about things. And stuff.

ISTP: Stuff You Should Know

From How Stuff Works. Stuff you definitely will never need to know, but probably should know, just in case.

ESTP: EconTalk

Self-explanatory. 

ESFJ: With Friends Like These

Another Crooked Media podcast, but with less comedy at the expense of Republican politicians and more “help how do I deal with my friends and family who think the government is actually comprised of secretive reptilian people that control everything about our society.”

ISTJ: Stuff You Missed In History Class

Also self-explanatory.

ENFP: This American Life

By the same people who produced S-Town, so you know it’s going to be good. 

ESFP: Pod Save The People

On the downside, another Crooked Media podcast. On the upside, I’ve now run out of Crooked Media podcasts to list.

ENFJ: Embedded

The revival of journalism, in my opinion. In depth stories and interviews; will also make you cry.

Sheev-Lursha - The Protector of Saxhleel Tradition

Argonians, or Saxhleel, are an oviparous race of reptilian people native to the large and marshy province known as Black Marsh, a region of Tamriel. They can be found in smaller numbers throughout the continent, and have been featured in every one of the main games thus far. Argonians are one of the few races completely unrelated to men and mer, being descended directly from the Hist. Enigmatic and intelligent, the Argonians are experts of guerrilla tactics, and their natural abilities suit their swampy homeland. They have developed immunities to diseases that have plagued many would-be explorers in the region, and they are capable of easily exploring underwater locations due to their ability to breathe water. Argonians also have some resistance to poison. They are also very capable warriors and archers due to their constant use of guerrilla warfare against Warring Tribes or Dunmer slavers.

Argonians start out in life as eggs; when a clutch of Argonian eggs is laid, they are placed near Hist trees in areas known as hatching pools. When the eggs hatch, they form a connection to the Hist. If, for whatever reason, this connection to the Hist is not present or is severed, the unborn within the eggs die. After being born, Argonian hatchlings drink the sap of the Hist and continue doing this through their infancy. According to them, the sap of the hist tree, when drank, gives a hatchling its soul. When that Argonian dies, his soul travels back to its Hist tree and is stored until another hatchling drinks that Hist. Thus, the Hist is giving it a soul, and so the cycle repeats. It is unknown if a hatchling would really have a soul of its own without receiving one from the Hist.

During the Oblivion Crisis, a powerful political faction known as the An-Xileel rallied the Argonians against the Daedra after the Battle of Kvatch. The An-Xileel were staunch Argonian traditionalists, tracing their ancestral ways back to the great Xanmeer civilization. It is also rumored that they of all the Argonian tribes have the strongest connection to the Hist and can receive knowledge and prophecies. When the Oblivion Gates opened in Black Marsh, the Daedra didn’t so much flood into Argonia as the Argonians did into Oblivion. The natives fought and defeated the Daedra on their own turf, doing so with such success that the Dremora lieutenants actually closed their Gates themselves to prevent being overrun, an occurrence unheard of in the other provinces. Thus, the An-Xileel held Black Marsh until Martin Septim ended the Oblivion Crisis and closed the Gates forever. They also made Black Marsh the first province to secede from the Empire after the Crisis ended, and initiated a brutal campaign of war against the Dunmer of Morrowind for the countless centuries of slave raids and Argonian servitude.

today, i’ve been crying all day. my mother, who is an arab, muslim immigrant and citizen of the united states for 27 years, and one of the strongest women i know, saw me when i was trying to study, but instead of words, there were tear drops on my paper. she sits down next to me and she asks me whats wrong. i tell her that im scared. she takes my hand and she says,
“i know. i know you’re scared. it sucks. it’s going to be hard and it’s up to God now. we’ve done our part. but now, prepare to fight. prepare to fight. your father and i raised three other kids for 12 years during the Bush presidency, okay? trump may be a modern day hitler, but he isn’t the first. it’s happening with the zionists to the palestinians. it’s happening in egypt. in yemen. in syria. but you fight. you know how? you study, you learn, you get good grades, and go to college. that’s how you fight. you beat them with your intelligence. if you die, you die. and it’s because God said it was your time. but you study and you prepare to fight.”
