Anonymous asked: How is that a misogynistic stereotype it's more like a fact. Most women are only looking for money, looks, a big dick and a high ranking social status. And your telling me that that's a stereotype? Oh please you silly person. XD
lol you can’t be serious right now?
look.. sorry you mom didn’t give you all the attention your desperate ass craved and that no woman wants to live in your shack talking about only YOUR whack ass interests. You may wanna educate yourself on what misogyny is…then promptly burn all your fedoras and shirts with “women belong in the kitchen” jokes.

define “natural”… I mean, they are filled with souls but there has been no cosmetic enhancement.
“In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.
A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.”

“I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.
This is a good illustration of what’s wrong with the US criminal justice system.
I’m more struck by the second anecdote, in which he was evidently disqualified from jury duty for displaying the ability to do math.
i think the idea is that 1700 milligrams sounds ~scary~ and thus him seeing past it means he might be already ‘biased’ in favor of the defendant.
Okay, but why is Neil Degrasse Tyson being subject to jury duty in the first place? Why is one of the most brilliant minds of all time having his thinking time taken up by petty fucking crime?
