    Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”

    Shut up already.

    The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 

    And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

    As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…

    A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier.  Her dad has ALS.  The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.

    This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp.  And they did.  She posted pics.

    So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.

    Things I want to see more of in media

    • Autistic characters using stim toys
    • Autistic characters wearing noise cancelling headphones
    • Autistic characters having accurately presented sensory overloads that aren’t portrayed as “immature” or “irrational”
    • Autistic characters who aren’t portrayed as socially inept freaks
    • Autistic characters who aren’t turned into punchlines to shitty offensive jokes
    • Positive, non-stigmatized autistic representation

    Steve: We had just gotten back from a mission in California and when the Helicarrier picked us up,I got the whole team to do a run by. It is the funniest thing we’ve done to date. Even if Peter fell asleep and we had to baby swaddle him to Tony so it would work.

    Sam: I hate all ya’ll. So much.

    I love wedding photos of strangers. I don’t even know you but I’m so happy that you’re happy and you look so lovely and it’s so wonderful and affirming somehow. I don’t know. Wedding photos make me happy.

    do you ever suddenly remember that some people actually have perfect vision and don’t wear glasses because they don’t need them and just stare into space for like 10 minutes wondering what that’s like
