Good googaly moogaly, don't ask me to scat!
On the 50th anniversary of his passing, we honor the legacy of President John F. Kennedy. We trace our roots and mission to 1960, when then-Senator Kennedy challenged students at the University of Michigan to serve their country in the cause of peace by living and working in developing countries. His inspiration led to the establishment of this agency in 1961 with a mission to promote world peace and friendship.
Today, we are more vital than ever, working in collaboration with public and private partners in emerging and essential areas such as education, information technology, agriculture and environment, and business development in countries around the world. The Peace Corps is committed to giving all Americans who want to serve the opportunity to make a difference and bring their experience back home to enrich their communities here in the United States.
Since 1961, more than 215,000 Americans of all ages and backgrounds have responded to Kennedy’s enduring challenge, demonstrating how the power of an idea can capture the imagination of an entire nation.

VSPINK goes feminist

This is AMAZING
LOOK AT THESE MODELS! This is amazing!! And it’s Victoria’s Secret!
Also notice the gender-neutral wording here: “PINK loves CONSENT is our newest collection of flirty, sexy and powerful statements that remind PINK panty-wearers and their partners to practice CONSENT.”
I’m not sure if that’s on purpose, but dang is it nice to think so.
IS NO ONE GOING TO MENTION THE FACT THAT THERE IS A M A L E MODEL?? You go VS, you go.
wow this is fantastic!!
There’s one that says “I’d rather have pizza”. YUP. NEED.
Guys, this isn’t real. All the “Victoria’s Secret” links bring up the homepage and no corporate entity would ever in a million years admit that “then” their product promoted “rape culture.”
Common, people. This is a clever campaign by some people who know how to copy/paste a logo.
Ever get a ticket in Chicago for parking your car or truck during street sweeping? Turns out, you’re not alone AT ALL.
The city’s collected at least $14 million dollars each year in ticket revenue over the past five years, just for street sweeping violations alone, according to data from the Department of Revenue.
So far in 2013, drivers have paid the city $15,336,802 for not moving their vehicles during street cleaning.
And all that cash goes directly into the general fund.
REASON #102 WHY I DON’T HAVE A CAR IN THIS CITY
I was wondering when this story would grow some legs.

Hey guys. I’m particularly proud of this blog post I wrote because it pretty accurately sums up how lonely Peace Corps can be. I call this phenomenon the “Peace Corps Wormhole.” Check it out, and please share with any bright young thing who aspires to joining the Peace Corps.
