I think it’s all connected. For example, we have people coming into our country by legal means bringing in diseases and other potential challenges. Yet we have a border that’s so porous that anyone can walk across it. I think it’s naive to think that people aren’t going to be walking through here who have those types of diseases and/or other types of intent, criminal or terrorist.

Powerful photos capture the student protests in Mexico barely anyone is talking about 

While the world has focused its attention on the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, there’s another student movement gaining steam on the other side of the world.

The unfolding protests gripping Mexico began in the small town of Iguala, in the southwest region of Guerrero state, where the disappearance of 43 student teachers on the night of Sept. 26 has sparked outrage amid allegations of collaboration between local police and organized crime.

This shit ain’t funny. Pray to the most powerful god in your arsenal that these people are alive, and safe, and that the people of these Mexican states will find justice and peace during a tumultuous time for their country.

GUEST: Hey there! I need a restaurant. Chippa Lattes.
CONCIERGE: Chippa Lattes?
GUEST: You don’t know it? Everyone loves it.
CONCIERGE: Can you spell it for me?
GUEST: No idea how to spell it. It’s just a whole bunch of letters put together.
CONCIERGE: Chippa?
GUEST: Or Chippo. Chippo Lottie’s.

Why I hate all people, but tourists more.

All those little lines are jokes! ALL THE JOKES! (at least the ones I noticed)

Last year Jeremy Bowers, Danny DeBelius, Christopher Groskopf, Aly Hurt and I made a very silly interactive graphic exhaustively tabulating the running jokes in Arrested Development, along with their connections:

And wouldn’t you know it, someone just put in a book — giving me an excuse to put in on tumblr. So if you’d like to see how many times GOB says “I’ve made a huge mistake,” check out the graphic.

I’ve made a huge mistake. And my mistake is not seeing this infographic until now. -Kate

Funniest infographic I’ve seen all day.
