Once Sold Tales Struggles with 500,000 Books - GalleyCat -
Seattle-area’s Once Sold Tales will close, and the owner is struggling to find homes for 500,000 books before her warehouse closes at the end of the month.
If you live near Seattle, you can visit the warehouses yourself. (Google maps link). A former employee posted those pictures of the store’s enormous warehouses and is trying to arrange a book sale on Reddit to avoiding pulping the books. Check it out:

US military covers up sexual assault by discharging victims -
Cenk Uygur and journalist Karisa King discuss how the military has historically handled sexual assault cases: by diagnosing the victim with a ‘personality disorder’ and then discharging them from the service.
As one victim said: “I was officially diagnosed with an ‘adjustment disorder’ that meant that I had failed to adjust to rape conditions.”
Just as someone who is pretty well indoctrinated into our sexual assault system I wanna just say that if you’re unfit for service afterwards why would they keep you in? You generally would get a medical discharge which if you served in a time of war (the past however long we’ve been in Iraq etc) you can’t Get disabled vet which will help take care of you. The military isn’t necessarily here to hold your hand. That’s what sapr and sarc are for.
Are you serious with this?
We are talking about military sexual assault. This crime is ignored and hushed up the majority of the time.
Help/support for the victims/survivors is nonexistent.
Our attackers get promotions and commendations.
They don’t even have the balls to diagnose us with PTSD. They just tell us that getting raped comes with the job.
SAPR and SARC are a fucking joke.
And so are you.
Truth. Most of the SAPR/SARC reps are the main perpetrators of assault.
The only requirement to be a SAPR rep is to be E4 or above. That’s it. Literally.

Reblog THIS ONE if you DID NOT get the talk.
My dad’s a doctor. He pulled out an old textbook of his and gave me the 3 hour medical lecture. I WAS SEVEN.
If I ever tell you I’m going to sleep and then you see me posting or liking things online for about an hour immediately after that, I promise I wasn’t lying to you, I’m just bad at going to sleep and it is usually a long process that begins with disengaging from any sort of immediate contact with people (chats, for example) and ends when everything on my screen is blurry and I’m hallucinating plot points I haven’t written yet
THIS IS MY LIFE
Instead of just looking up into the sky, you’re actually gazing down into the infinite cosmic abyss, with only gravity holding you onto the surface of the earth.
i was not prepared for that
And that abyss is moving about 300 kilometers a second.
And it’s quite possible that quite a bit of what you can see is so far away that it isn’t there anymore.
