Now Playing Tracks




You ever get home from a bad day at work and start crying because Melissa McCarthy has a romantic lead in her new movie and it’s Mark Duplass? Because that’s where I am today.

I’m terrified that it’s going to be played as ridiculous but I’m SO HAPPY that a woman with my body type might have someone be interested in her in a big summer blockbuster that I can hardly stand it.

 I really don’t think McCarthy’s weight is going to be played for laughs in terms of romance though because a. the trailers don’t hint at that and b. Melissa and her hubby wrote it and c. Adam McKay and Will Ferrell are producers, so they’re going to know how to let comedians do their thing without too much interference. 

Oh god, this makes me so happy!!!

Of course, there is one easy case study that proves the rule: Hawaii, which is separated from every other state by quite a bit of ocean. The Aloha State, which boasts the lowest gun ownership rate and among the strongest gun laws in our country, has the lowest gun violence rate, according to The Law Center To Prevent Gun Violence. Meanwhile, in Arizona, with those ridiculously nonexistent gun laws, you’re five times more likely to die from a gun than in Hawaii. This pattern extends throughout the country, from lax regulation states like Mississippi and Alaska (18.3 and 17.6 gun deaths, per 100,000 people, respectively) to strong regulation states like Rhode Island and Massachusetts (3.5 and 3.6 gun deaths per 100,000, respectively). This really isn’t that hard.
