The bottom line is that redheads have specific mutations on the MCR1 gene that not only increase expression of red pigment but may also be involved with the function of the central nervous system.
What a neat field of research! I know the last time I went down, there were some very concerned doctors about the dosage they needed to keep me there. I’m excited about the possibilities of customization that this research will open up.
Here’s a tip for the do-it-yourself crowd: Go to your computer’s Start menu, and either go to “run” or just search for “cmd.” Open it up, and type in “ping [website address],”
Once you have the IP for a website, all you really need to do is enter it like you would a normal URL nd hit enter/press go. Typing in “184.108.40.206” should bring you to the front page of AO3, for example, just as typing “220.127.116.11/dashboard” should bring you straight to your Tumblr dashboard. Since we’re obviously bracing for the worst case scenario which would involve you not being able to access the internet regularly, you should, save this list.

I would hope you’d be so horrified that anyone would think that beating the shit out of someone for shits and giggles was a fucked up thing to do.
Well, that’s what rape is. It’s a violent assault that uses sex as a weapon instead of fisticuffs. But the general gist is the same. But we get all confused, because we as a culture don’t think of sex as something that men and women do together for fun, but as something men extract from women. If we were clearer on this, why rape isn’t sex wouldn’t be so damn hard to understand. And we wouldn’t tolerate rapists wandering amongst us, free to rape.
My theory is that it isn’t that we don’t want to pay for content. It’s that we don’t want to pay exorbitant prices so that the corporations can get rich, rather than the artists we admire and support. And we want to control our content, to be able to watch…
