Found out what happened to the iPhone cookie man
give that officer an award
I’m so glad
So he was actually texting (okay, tweeting, whatever) while driving while pretending to text while driving?
This piece on the guardian has catalogued some great comebacks to sexist comments/ everyday sexism. The comeback were posted in tweets at the request of @EverydaySexism on twitter. Here’s one of them:

I wish I could think of snarky comebacks on my feet like that. Especially when it comes to street harassment. I almost always get too flustered/upset to make a coherent response.

I am laughing really hard.
I didn’t realize I sent these to you quite so small, hopefully these show all those hours of detail a little better :P
A repost of these lovely fixes.
Ballerina Wears Knife Shoes to Perform En Pointe
Ballerinas are often associated with beauty, grace, and elegant human forms. In his video En Puntas (‘On Points’), however, artist Javier Perez has managed to preserve all of these elements while also portraying the dark intensity, dedication and even violence that this graceful art form can represent.
En Puntas features ballerina Amelie Segarra dancing the en pointe ballet technique (in which the performer typically dances on the points of their toes) on the tips of huge, menacing kitchen knives in an empty, darkened theater. She struggles to maintain the grace that we typically expect of ballerinas as the knives scrape and stab ever more violently at the grand piano she’s standing on. Her composure, however, is periodically broken as she lets out a scream of frustration at the intense difficulty of her performance.
No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.
