Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - New Season 2 Preview
*not-so-silently freaks out*
It seems that we can’t go a week without some journalist or politician calling for “an open and honest debate” about something, yet we never seem to actually have one. The reason for this is multifaceted. On one hand, it’s because the people who call for “open and honest debate” rarely want…
how do i get this picture of myself tumblr famous
i want this tattooed on my back
lol, this would make a magnificently stupid tattoo.
1) I’ve always found it a very bizarre assumption that pro-lifers only care about fetuses. The Catholic Church, one of the most notorious abortion spooners, is actually one of the largest charity providers in America.
If we’re basing this on a more political level, republicans, the ones who don’t like abortion, are statistically more likely to donate to charitable organizations. (http://www.ethicsdaily.com/republican-states-give-more-to-charity-than-democratic-states-cms-19923)
2) Most of the children in Foster Care can’t be adopted because the parental rights of their biological parents haven’t been terminated yet. The parental rights need to be terminated in order for the child to be eligible for adoption. Also, most of the kids waiting to be adopted are teenagers, have severe mental or physical disabilities, want to stay in a certain area or there’s like, five siblings. (firsthand testimony from someone I’ve spoken with who tried to adopt a foster child)
3) this is some real next level stupidity. as a black bisexual, I personally laugh in the face of anyone who says anything like this.
you seem to care ooooh sooooo much about POC, but do you care that African American children in NYC are more than 50% likely to be aborted?
or, on a more basic level, what have you done to ease ANY of problems that my people are facing? or are you just offering abortion as the only solution to… homelessness? police brutality? unemployment? workplace discrimination? misrepresentation in media?you are not pro-choice, you are pro-abortion. you clearly only like to use oppressed peoples who are suffering from REAL ISSUES as props to demonstrate why everyone needs an abortion. what about everyone who needs pre-natal care? diapers? better maternity leave? antibiotics and other medication? home aid? anything other than an abortion?
Civilization IV Theme - Baba Yetu - Peter Hollens & Malukah
The Our Father in Swahili. Also was apparently used as the theme song of Civilization IV, which is why Peter & Malukah are doing it. Excellent cover regardless. :)
With the shooting death of Michael Brown, the subject of race has been a hot topic in America lately. We hear daily about “white privilege” and how racist white Americans are. But a few stories recently paint a slightly different picture of racism. Yes, racism exists, but not always in the…
It’s finally done! Took me way too long to finish…
This is my Lord of the Rings Online character, Aearivor. He’s a badass Rune-keeper.
The American Hogwarts Houses
Look at your school of witchcraft and wizardry. Now look at mine. Now yours. Now back to mine. Sadly, your school is not mine, but if you all got off your broomsticks and started using a real sorcerer’s deodorant, it could smell like mine. Abracadabra! I’m a horse.
I laughed much too hard at this. XD
I thought this was going to be funny but it got really sad really fast
my heart hurts
You know, there’s a country song for this…
Here we go. CNN is conflicting yesterday’s reports that Officer Darren Wilson suffered an eye socket fracture before shooting and killing Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.
Here’s the report from CNN:
I love this story because it’s thankfully not the kind of police-related story we so often report on around here. This isn’t a story about abuse of power or brutality; it’s a story about compassion and going above and beyond the call of duty.
This is what a good cop looks like.
Oh god thank fucking christ.
I usually don’t reblog these, but I feel like some of my followers could probably use the reassurance. I definitely have these kinds of thoughts sometimes.
so i’m not crazy for randomly thinking such thoughts? what a relief!
Edgar Allan Poe had a name for it too: The Imp of the Perverse. he compared the impulses to a demon that urges people to do the wrong thing simply because it can be done
The compulsion to jump from high places is called “l’appel du vide" in French. The call of the void. I think it’s specific to that one instance, but I think it’s a cool phrase for this phenomenon in general.
I think about this with random sharp objects laying around, too. “What if I just jammed this into my eye or throat right now? … oh god WHAT.” Just… fucking christ, brain. Don’t.
Reblogging this again because most people don’t/never know how normal these thoughts are, and that can be a major source of stress. It’s okay. You’re okay. Just, you know, don’t follow through on that shit.
Sometimes I wonder if the occasional vivid images in my head of myself falling into traffic or tripping and knocking my teeth out or dropping expensive, precious things are points where I failed the mission and had to respawn and start over.
Reblogging for that last comment.
Putin has ramped up his incursion into Ukraine, sending hundreds of trucks across the border. Ukraine is calling it a “direct invasion.”
Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko has accused Russia of a “flagrant violation of international law” after Russian humanitarian aid lorries…
(To Westboro Baptist Church)
"If you really believe in standing up to those threatening the Christian way of life," Hills said on his UK television program "The Last Leg," "how about putting your money where your mouth is, taking a direct flight to Iraq and picketing the people threatening to behead Christians if they don’t convert?"
Hills then took his suggestion a step further by making a generous offer. “I will personally pay for every member of the Westboro Baptist Church to fly to Iraq right now. I’ll even fly you first class and pay the carbon offset.”
Please, no. Why is the British man flying our crazies into a warzone? We’re just gonna have to rescue their stupid butts when they get kidnapped or stuck in a siege. And they hate OUR military, too, so rescuing them will be even more of a hardship than usual.
Seriously, it was funny, but he’d better not actually do it. We need neither the headache nor the hit to Iraqi-American relations that would inevitably result.
Old Spice ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
everyone go home this is the best one.
Also apparently they’ve reached over $50 MILLION IN DONATIONS this is freaking amazing ;___;
WHY IS HE SO PERFECT.
MOTHER OF PEARL.
Yup. This one wins.
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
This the same unarmed black kid who outweighed the cop he was facing by a lot, gave the cop a sever enough beating that continued use of one of the man’s eyes is actually in question right now, and also went for the cop’s gun as he was laying said beating on him? Or is this something else?
