Retrograde Waters

Hello. I'm Rose, 20-something Nebraskan. If you want to know more feel free to ask, I'm not going to waste space here.
This is a personal blog that serves as a miscellaneous collection of things I find cute, cool, interesting, and enraging.
I know that all people are equal and deserve the same rights and respect, and I welcome everyone of all and any race, religion, nationality, gender, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, romantic orientation, age, ability, anything else I may have forgotten (let me know!) and any combination or absence thereof. I do NOT welcome discrimination and bigotry. If *I* say or do anything that is offensive or insensitive, please tell me! I try to consider everyone/different perspectives and experiences when speaking, but I could always make a mistake, and educating myself is a constant process: I will be grateful rather than offended to have small-mindedness on my part pointed out. It's the only way I'll know to correct it.
Thank you and have a nice day!
(Blog NSFW: strong language, various topics of discussion, and occasional images of anatomy and/or nudity.)

Romney Campaign Tries to Make Venn Diagram, Fails

Romney Staffer No. 1: I got it! We’ll illustrate the “Middle-Class Promise Gap on Healthcare” with a Venn diagram!

Romney Staffer No. 2: But … how? I don’t even think that’s possible.

Romney Staffer No. 1: In the left circle we’ll put the promise, in the right circle we’ll put the reality, and in the middle, the difference between the two.

Romney Staffer No. 2: Yeah, like I said, that doesn’t work. You see, in a Venn diagram …

Romney Staffer No. 1: Shut up, Larry! You’re always bossing me around and telling me why my Venn diagrams don’t make any sense! Um, actually, the Venn diagram was founded in 1805 by Lord Venn at the — I can’t take it anymore! It’s bullshit!

Romney Staffer No. 2: Okay, jeez, stop crying. You can do the Venn diagram.

Romney Staffer No. 1: [Sniffles.] Thank you.
