Barnes & Noble is splitting into two companies: one for Nooks and one for books

thebookmunkie:

Interesting. It’s really hard to tell what’s going to happen with B&N. I’m so afraid it’s going to go the way of Borders. 

"PG says spending 18 months unsuccessfully trying to split Nook from the bookstores, then deciding to stay together, then deciding again to split up doesn’t portend a sunny future for Barnes & Noble.

PG suspects that Nook has already suffered a significant brain drain. This news will send even more talented employees out the door.”

B&N dug their own grave. I have no sympathy for them even as I sell my books through their platform. They brought this on themselves.

If I’m shopping at Target and I see this, I’m calling the cops.  

Seriously.  I don’t care about your fucking rights, I just want to buy some dad jeans and maybe a tub of frosted animal crackers without having to worry about your casually slung assault rifle going off and the bullet ricocheting off the price checker and right into my ass.  Thanks but no thanks.  

This can not be real

but think about it if it was armed black people or hispanic people. They would be considered “thugs” and “criminals”. If it was a group of people from the middle east they would be terrorists, But because it’s like 800 different shades of mayo they’re using their 2nd amendment rights…smdh. 

I don’t think it would be in the best interest of any poc, ESPECIALLY black people, to do what this woman in the photo is doing. We would be killed so quick. The police already hate us to the point where they have killed and continue to either beat, kill, torture, and discriminate against us. The 2nd Amendment only applies to white people as far as I’m concerned.

I recently went to a con with some friends and you could see these posters all over the expo grounds. I think I speak for everyone when I say that this is a job well done. 

I disagree, I think costumes do equal consent. If a guy goes up to you while you’re wearing a Harley Quinn costume and makes you feel uncomfortable, you automatically have his consent to knock him right in the face with a hammer. I mean, he did willingly walk up to a kickass villain
