Client: “Google.”

Me: “Google Chrome?”

Client: “No, just regular Google.”

Me: “That’s the site. I want to know the browser.”

Client: “Google.”

Me: “No.”

Client: “Look, we can have this conversation forever, man. But when I hit the internet logo, Google comes up!”

Me: “Okay…What does that “internet logo” look like?

Client: “…A fiery fox, I guess. But that’s irrelevant.”

Muggleborn students at Hogwarts (part 1/?)

I love muggleborn headcanons.

There aren’t any “anti-muggle-technology charms,” did anyone actually READ Hogwarts: A History?

i apparently didn’t

but i did pick up somewhere that technology just doesn’t WORK around magic because magic futzes with it or something

There’s just so much magic in the air that technology physically can’t work when you’re around hogwarts.

This week casinos run by Native American tribes canceled three separate Ted Nugent shows set for August.

From the Southern Poverty Law Center:

The latest controversy began on Monday after Hatewatch called the Coeur d’Alene Tribe of American Indians and asked why that tribe – which has devoted itself to fighting hate and racism – would host a performer like Nugent. Nugent, among many other things, has called President Obama a “subhuman mongrel” and Hillary Clinton a “toxic cunt.” Many of his racist, antigovernment remarks have been made from the stage during rock performances, during which he sometimes wears an Indian headdress.

A tribal spokesperson told Hatewatch that it “was a good question,” and within hours the Coeur d’Alene tribe announced it was cancelling Nugent’s scheduled performance at their casino in Worley, Idaho.

And the Puyallup Tribe in western Washington followed suit:

“The Ted Nugent shows, scheduled for August 2nd and 3rd at the Emerald Queen Casino, have been cancelled,” the tribe announced on the casino’s Facebook page without further elaboration.

Music industry experts foresee an even further decline in Nugent’s career as a result of his inflammatory speech.

Larry Magid, a Philadelphia-based promoter who handled Stevie Wonder, Fleetwood Mac, and Bette Midler, said that you can’t “blame anyone for not wanting to play him for all of the baggage that he brings.” He added, "For all of the people enamored with him, there are 20 or 30 or 40 times that who are not enamored with him. To me, it’s not bright. If I’m a promoter I have to think two or three or four times before I take a shot with this performer."

The editor-in-chief of Pollstar USA, which tracks concert touring receipts, pointed out that “it’s a free country and Nugent has always had a big mouth. But if he keeps making incendiary statements his future tours may be limited to NRA conventions and Fox News events.”

The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.

I’m going to let that sink in.

Ah yes let me just up and leave school right in between my classes so I can go see the friend 40 miles away that i’m currently texting instead of making idle chit chat with the people around me that I don’t particularly care for.

Fuck your pretentious shit.
