Everyone should occasionally break the law

in some small and delightful way,
it’s good for the hygiene of the brain."
(Sir Terry Pratchett)

It’s funny because Americans wont get it

this is killing me. WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

i was tempted to write what it means, but then i thought
no, let them suffer

i’m suffering

brilliant

Okay, I’m going to take a gander at this.
(I have no idea why I was compelled to use that expression.)
Is “auto class” the same thing as driver’s education?

Hmm. Is part of it a “the screen is fried” pun? 

oh my fucking god
this is adorable

I’m American
and I get this 

I love this so much but I love the comments more

I DON’T UNDERSTAAAAAAAAND.

This Is Big: Scientists Just Found Earth’s First-Cousin

Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home. 
NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered. 
It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute. 
But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

Amazingly, a great many people wanted to live in Ankh-Morpork, as opposed to somewhere else (or quite possible as opposed to being dead in Ankh-Morpork, which was always an optional extra.)

ARAKHNE (or Arachne) was an arrogant girl from a Greek town in Lydia who once dared challenge the goddess Athena to a contest in weaving. Arachne produced a piece of cloth in which the amours of the gods were woven, and as Athena could find no fault with it, she tore the work to pieces, and Arachne in despair hung herself. Athena then transformed her into a spider(Greek arakhnês). picture by
