What I’ve Learned from Two Years Collecting Data on Police Killings: “The biggest thing I’ve taken away from this project is something I’ll never be able to prove, but I’m convinced to my core: The lack of such a database is intentional. No government—not the federal government, and not the thousands of municipalities that give their police forces license to use deadly force—wants you to know how many people it kills and why.”
Hello Kitty is not a cat. Everything is a lie.: Heh: “I did in fact know about Charmmy Kitty before. But I always assumed that owning another, smaller cat was just an act of weird sadism on Hello Kitty’s part, the way you see Micky Mouse goofing around with Goofy while owning Pluto. But who knows. Mickey may not actually be a mouse at this point. Mickey is probably a five year-old German boy with six siblings who lives near Frankfurt and likes to go to the airport to watch the airplanes land. Oscar the Grouch is probably just a resident of Cleveland with a skin condition. Anything could be true of any animal at this point. Rocket Raccoon is probably not a raccoon after all. After all, he doesn’t think he’s a raccoon, and it’s how you self-identify that matters.”
