Chicago’s newest attraction - a 1000ft-high viewing platform that offers spectacular downward facing views over the city. TILT is housed in 360 CHICAGO on the 94th floor of the John Hancock Tower and, as the name suggests, the enclosed glass and steel platform tilts visitors forward for a unique perspective of the city’s The Magnificent Mile.

Referee Pete Morelli was Doug Martins’ high school principal. Very cool.
My mom asked me today if I have enough clothes for the trip because she knows I “don’t like to tell her about stuff like that.”
Republicans talking shit AGAIN. This @GOP tweet is the literal opposite of what they believe, campaign, and how they vote.
They know that no matter how outrageously they lie, their base will still believe them.
What is it about modern conservatism that demands there always be not just a threat, but an existential threat? It’s not enough that Saddam Hussein was a vicious dictator, he also had to be just years away from unleashing a “mushroom cloud” upon us all. It’s not just that there was a temporary rise in the number of undocumented minors crossing our borders, we had to have people like Rep. Louie Gohmert explain to us why this was going to somehow result in the end of American civilization. And those kids probably had Ebola. And they were probably Muslims. Reforming health care was going to lead to a dystopian future in which you would appear before a government panel that decided whether you lived or died. Putin is an evil mastermind who has his eyes not just on Crimea or even Ukraine, but on most of Europe if we do not send in our own tanks, or talk much more angrily, or do some other unspecified something. Everything is the immediate precursor to Armageddon, every day, all the time.
We have serious issues in both this country and the world, and we need to have serious, intelligent people in Congress to deal with them. Unfortunately we’ve got two year-olds that are afraid of the dark.
I’ve always hated that people want represents who they “can have a beer with” or who are “just like us” - News flash people in congress are not like you unless you’re a millionaire (median net worth of member of congress is $1,000,000). What we should want is people who are smart, smarter than the average US citizen, people who aren’t easily to panic, and tend to think before they act. Instead we’ve got Graham, and Gohmert, and Cruz, and Issa, and the list goes on…
Rush Limbaugh is so sick of the “modern” definition of consent. When a girl says “NO,” she actually mean NO. But that’s just crazy talk, according to Limbaugh.
Oh, look. Another “voice of the GOP” giving you a reason not to vote for the GOP.
Reblogging with a link to the removal tool because I know at least one person who probably really wants to use it.
