Things We Saw Today: JK Rowling Slams Rupert Murdoch’s Islamophobia
Knew we loved her for a reason
Maybe most Moslems peaceful, but until they recognize and destroy their growing jihadist cancer they must be held responsible.

I was born Christian. If that makes Rupert Murdoch my responsibility, I’ll auto-excommunicate. http://t.co/Atw1wNk8UX

Harry Potter author/eternal hero/twitter addict JK Rowling responded to a super Islamophobic tweet from Rupert Murdoch by continuing to be great.
- Supernatural‘s been renewed for an eleventh season! It will probably continue long past when the world lies in ruin and all of us are dead and gone. Also renewed: Arrow, The Flash, Jane the Virgin, The 100, Reign, The Originals, and The Vampire Diaries. Pretty much everything but Hart Of Dixie. (via TVLand)
- The Toast has a great piece on all of the things you can knit. It’s a lot of things. With an abundance of variety. (via The Toast)
- This spells out the difference between an outbreak and an epidemic if you’ve been looking for a resource. (via io9)
- Guillermo Del Torro is making a “dark, victorian fantasy” series for Amazon! I hope it’s less visually horrifying than The Strain, but that’s just my personal aversion to things coming out of orifices. (via io9)
This is a SUPER GREAT fanart that TMS commenter John made yesterday. AGENT PORPOISE CARTER. You can check out more stuff from John here, including Iron Dolphin and Dolphin Hawkeye. Technically I saw this yesterday, but ALL HAIL JOHN.
