Three weeks ago the 5th edition of Dungeons and Dragons came out. D&D is the iconic tabletop role playing game, so a new edition is a big deal. It’s one of the few times that the small, insular pen and paper community gets noticed by the rest of the world. Many game websites have talked about it, notably Polygon’s piece on gender inclusive language.

I see that your cheeks are blushing. 

unbelievable-facts:


Video games have been proven to be a more efficient method of overcoming depression than counseling among teens.

How on EARTH did you get that conclusion from your sourced material?  
The actual article concludes that ”SPARX is a potential alternative to usual care for adolescents presenting with depressive symptoms in primary care settings and could be used to address some of the unmet demand for treatment.” NOT “Video games are way better than counseling!”
Not only that by the children used in this study, this SINGLE study, were all on the low end of the depression spectrum, displaying “no major risk of self harm” and were only referred for help by their primary healthcare provider (i,e. their normal doctor, not an actual trained psychologist.)
This sort of misleading “fact” is exactly why we have idiots out there that think vaccines cause autism or that a strictly paleo diet will somehow make them superhuman.  Please, for the sake of everyone, stop sensationalizing your facts to make them something they aren’t.

Ohmygod this is hilarious

Catdad lays out life exactly how it is.

Alright, tumblr, level with me.  What’s up with the whole lowercase to capitalized letters in the middle of a word?  I get that you’re supposed to be really excited, can’t even, are so done with this website, or literally dying but can’t you at least capitalize your entire word?  Am I expected to believe you accidentally made it half way through a six letter word before hitting the capslock to finish?

Seriously, who made this a popular trend?  It’s getting out of hand.
