I'd never want to buy a $10k watch at an Apple Store. How could Apple change the stores so that I would?

It’s a good question — one I’ve been thinking about as well recently (hat tip to Megan for first bringing it up). While I do believe they will sell the Apple Watch in Apple Stores, it does seem like it may make sense to open some smaller, Apple Watch-specific stores in certain markets. Ideally, these would be situated in the high-end shopping areas where high-end watch stores currently reside. Stay tuned for more thoughts on this.

I heard this suggested on some podcast this weekend, but there are certain Apple Stores with business centers in another part of the store. Potential enterprise customers can go hands-on with un-tethered devices (the one in the Michigan Ave. store in Chicago is really nice). Perhaps those could be remodeled into Apple Watch showrooms?

“It’s never, never, never the woman’s fault. No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman. No means no. […] The one regret I have is we call it domestic violence as if it’s a domesticated cat. It is the most vicious form of violence there is, because not only the physical scars are left, the psychological scars that are left. This whole culture for so long has put the onus on the woman. What were you wearing? What did you say? What did you do to provoke? That is never the appropriate question.”

What if the Inquisitor’s hand was like a glow stick and they had to break their wrist to make it glow and that is why Inquisition takes so long.

you can tell this fandom is getting tired of waiting

It’s so close I can taste it. Almost. I haven’t been this excited for a game in a while. I’m like new Harry Potter book-excited.

When I was a kid I thought your 20s were supposed to be fun, not filled with perpetual anxiety about financial stability and constantly feeling like an unaccomplished piece of shit. 

That’s because it was fun for baby boomers and they basically gave us this impression it would always be like that, but then they ruined the economy.

EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.

but why

Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.

The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.

Back to witches and wizards, and magical beasts!
To goblins and ghosts, and to magical feasts!
It’s all that I love, and it’s all that I need.
Hogwarts, Hogwarts! I think I’m going back—

I love AVPM.

Though I think my favorite Starkid song is Days of Summer from AVPS.

Officer Darren Wilson of the Ferguson MO Police Department

Why aren’t the media releasing the photos of Police Officer Darren Wilson’s injuries after he was assaulted by “the unarmed black teenager”?
He was punched in the face before he emptied his weapon into the drugged “unarmed teenager”—-here is what a broken eye socket looks like:

If you support someone regardless of their actions before the facts are reviewed just because of their skin color you’re more racist than you could ever paint this man who acted in self defense.

Ignoring “drugged” and “punched in the face” and “supporting someone regardless of their actions before the facts are reviewed” and “racist”, you should know that THIS PHOTO IS NOT OF DARREN WILSON. It’s dead motocross rider Jim McNeil.

18,000 notes on this photo, fucking hell.

“In San Francisco last year, a man stabbed a woman in the face and arm after she didn’t respond positively to his sexually harassing her on the street.

In Bradenton, Fla., a man shot a high school senior to death after she and her friends refused to perform oral sex at his request.

In Chicago, a scared 15-year-old was hit by a car and died after she tried escaping from harassers on a bus.

Again, in Chicago, a man grabbed a 19-year-old walking on a public thoroughfare, pulled her onto a gangway and assaulted her.

In Savannah, Georgia, a woman was walking alone at night and three men approached her. She ignored them, but they pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.

In Manhattan, a 29-year-old pregnant woman was killed when men catcalling from a van drove onto the sidewalk and hit her and her friend.

Last week, a runner in California — a woman — was stopped and asked, by a strange man in a car, if she wanted a ride. When she declined he ran her over twice.

FUCK YOU if you think that street harassment is a “compliment” or “no big deal” or that it’s “irrational” of us to be afraid because “what’s actually gonna happen.” Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you some more.”

What am I doing with my Friday night? Oh, nothing. Just watching Dragon Age: Inquisition videos, because my thirst cannot be slaked.
