The Clash helps some of their fans to sneak in before a concert.
this is how you do music right.
I love this so much. Like how stoked would you be if a band you loved helped you sneak into a big show of theirs?
I’ve heard this story before and love that they did this. Stop me if you heard this other one:
The Ramones were playing in England and before the show they were hanging out in the dressing room when someone tossed a stone at the window. They looked out to see some young punks who wanted to get into the show but didn’t have money for tickets. The Ramones reached down and pulled the guys up and got them in. Those young punks without tickets were to become The Clash.
Good to hear they kept it going.

"I’m 12% Irish, 16% German, 30% Italian, 24% French, 15% Swedish, 3% Cherokee…"
the most important thing I’ve learned since this post got popular is that nothing offends white Americans more than pointing out that they’re a white American
I mean, I’d never deny that I am a white American, but reducing it to nothing more than that is telling the person that whatever European cultural heritage they may have is completely unimportant. It’s not racism, but it is kind of being a jerk. Especially if they feel particularly connected to one or more parts of it.
(Yes, I get the implication that the person may be trying to claim that the 3% Cherokee makes them not white, which is obviously absurd, and yet I’m sure has been the nature of a lot of the ridiculous offense taken, but I feel my point still stands. It at least still stands for the people not being morons. For the people being morons, I don’t have anything.)

What if all the ice melted?
The ocean holds most of Earth’s water. After that, it’s ice. 5.7 million cubic miles of the stuff.
What if, thanks to natural and man-made climate change, it all melted? What if, by burning enough deep-Earth carbon (dead dinosaurs, prehistoric plants, or as we call it… fossil fuels) we raised Earth’s average temperature to around 80˚ F?
Thanks to National Geographic we know: This is is what 216 feet (66 meters) of sea level change looks like.
This is utterly terrifying.
