this is fucking hilarious
it’s like he’s talking about Tupperware containers.
Which is probably how he essentially saw the whole human race other than Dean.
This is honestly the best and none of those other fuckers can beat Cas in amazingness.
ROTTEN – COMING 20-NEVERsnow white is dead. the news echoes across the black mine-hills, bellows throughout a land ravaged with smoke and despair. super-8 images of her face, stained with black blood, flicker across everafter’s screens. the people weep for a day, perhaps, then move on. but seven girls – legends, once, now pathetic and lost – rise from the ashes of their own pasts to reclaim what was once promised as theirs. guns, guts, girls, and a glorious, glorious death. double, double, toil and trouble. a kingdom for my rotten apple.
starring (in order of appearance): dianna agron as aurora, danai gurira as tiana, deborah ann woll as ariel, zhang ziyi as mulan, teresa palmer as cinderella, sarah shahi as jasmine, and leighton meester as belle.
no but seriously
look at Steve’s face after Erskine says “good becomes great, bad becomes worse.”
THAT IS NOT THE FACE OF A MAN THINKING ABOUT ALL HIS GOOD QUALITIES
That is a man taking stock of every single moral deficiency in his character and immediately…
He’s thinking of every single time he’s failed to do the right thing, every time he’s walked away from a fight or a bully, every single time he’s skived off his homework or been mean or lazy or let someone else take the blame.
I’m kind of reminded of his talk with Bucky at the Stark Expo - they don’t discuss it in depth there, but Bucky calls Steve on his desire to prove himself by getting into the army, and Steve both acknowledges it and still stubborny goes forward with his attempt to enlist.
It’s interesting, because it’s a form of hubris or selfish pride, in that if you’re brutal about it, Steve-as-he-was would’ve been more useful to the war effort collecting scrap metal or doing pretty much anything else except for enlisting. It’s only that if he did manage to enlist, it would prove the world that he is a real man, like all other men. But at the same time he also knows perfectly well he has no real chance to get in; to Steve, the fact that he still keeps trying to enlist anyway is probably a kind of a release valve for all of the anger and frustration inside, and a way to fight back and reassure himself that he is a real person capable of making a difference, even if everybody else (as Steve believes) thinks he’s useless.
He must be aware of this at least on some level, so while Erskine’s experiment is also a tantalising possibility for Steve to become somebody who gets taken seriously and is finally able to do something real, in this scene he probably is not just questioning his own worth, but also his own motives.
Does he want this transformation for himself, or so that he could help other people?
And I think it’s Steve’s awareness that a part of him does want this for petty, personal reasons, the same part that liked the applause in the USO shows and getting flirted at by Pvt. Lorraine and actually winning a fight, that makes him so determined to use the terrible privilege he’s been granted for good. He’s always held himself up to absurdly high standards, and that’s not going to change after his body changes.
One of Steve’s good qualities is his self-awareness. Which admittedly gets overwhelmed by his ‘more mouth than sense’ and his ‘I AM RIGHT DAMMIT’ things occasionally. But he does try.
Which states have the most people with state pride?
californians don’t give a shit about being californian
i live in LA and i hate love it.
the entire purpose of LA is hate loving it i’m pretty sure
like i can’t NOT love parts of it here and i’m still like EHHHHHHH cost of living, gentrification nightmare, what is public transportation and why do we have very little, etc etc
The fuck is Ohio so proud about
As some one who has lived in Ohio more than any other state/province/country/place in her life.. I don’t know. I really don’t know. Ohioans seem to be divided into “C’mon guys we can make this place better, go Ohio! Improve!” or “This place sucks I need to move.” Though, my observations are limited to Cleveland, so that might have something to do with it.
one more reason to side with the empire xD Darth Vowrawnreally was great in the storyline, though
a lot a lot of people asked for more modern avatar after this post, so here’s a bunch of scraps that i cleaned up, this time featuring SukI! I originally had a like, five panel comic planned out to explain that little zuko/katara scene at the bottom but idk if you guys know this about me but i’m rly lazy so inevitably that didn’t happen
Guaranteed basic income to every citizen, whether or not they are employed to ensure their survival and that they live in a dignified, humane way, preventing poverty, illness, homelessness, reducing crime, encouraging higher education and learning vocations as well as helping society become more prosperous as a whole.
Wow. Forget raising the minimum wage. This is much much better idea.
The minimum wage could actually drop if we had basic income.
But Americans would never go for it. Miserably slogging through 12 hour days and having businesses open 24/7 is too engrained in our culture.
"BUT WHERE WILL THE GOVERNMENT GET THE MONEY?" screamed Joe Schmoe, slamming a meaty fist onto the table and getting mouth-froth all over the front of his greying tank top. "You libt*rds all think money grows on TREES!! HAHA!"
"But where will people get the incentive to work?!" Mindy Bindy cried, flapping her hands in front of her face. She’d had a fear of the unemployed lollygagging about ever since she was a child and her mother told her to be afraid of the unemployed lollygagging about. "You think people should get paid for nothing? I work hard for my money!”
"But who will serve me?" grumbled Marty McMoneybags. "Who will make me feel important? Who will do my laundry and cook my food and stand in front of me wearing a plastic smile while I take out all my stress—because I do have a lot of stress, you know, being this rich is stressful—on them?” He paused and straightened out the piles of hundred dollar bills on the desk in front of him, then raised his two watery, outraged eyes up to the Heavens. “Lord, if there are no poor people, how will I know that I’m rich??”
I laughed. This is perfect! Well said!
The thing is, while I’m sure you could scrape up a few people who’d be willing to just float by on a guaranteed minimum income? For most people the choice to work would be a no-brainer. “Hmmm. I can get by on 33k a year, or I can take that part time job and make 48k… enough to move to a better apartment, maybe take the family on vacation. Sold.” Hell, most people would want to work simply because it gives one a sense of dignity and something to do with one’s time. (Speaking as someone who’s been unemployed, on extended sick leave, etc. in her time, the boredom and sense of isolation that comes with not having a job is almost as bad as the humiliation of having to depend on other people for one’s survival.)
And with this system, part-time jobs and “non-skilled” jobs would be much more readily available because nobody would need to work two or three jobs just to stay afloat!
Which would ALSO mean that employers and customers couldn’t shamelessly exploit employees the way they can today, because if losing a job weren’t necessarily a financial disaster, more people would be willing to walk out on jobs where they weren’t being treated with dignity.
And if this also applies to students (and it should) then student loans would become much less of a problem, and fewer people would flunk out of school because of having to juggle studies and work.
Far fewer people would be forced to stay with abusive partners, parents or roommates because they couldn’t afford to move out.
And the thing is, all those people who suddenly had money? They’d be spending it. They’d be getting all the stuff they can’t afford now - new clothes, books, toys, locally-produced food, car repairs - and with each purchase money would flow BACK to the government, because VAT, also income tax.
The unemployed and/or disabled wouldn’t need special support any more - which would also mean the government could fire however many admins who are currently engaged in humiliating - *cough* making sure those people aren’t getting money they don’t deserve. Same for medical benefits and pensions. And I’m no legal scholar, but I somehow imagine less financial desperation would lead to less petty crime, and hence less need for police and security everywhere?
TL;DR Doomie thinks this is a good idea, laughs at those who protest.
reblogging for more top commentary
They tried something like this out in Canada as a sort of social experiment, called Mincome. What they found was that, on the whole, people continued to work about as much as they did before. Only new mothers and teenagers worked substantially less hours.
But wait, there’s more. Because parents were spending just a little more time at home and involved with their families, test scores increased. Because teens didn’t have to work to support their families, drop-out rates decreased. Crime rates, hospital visits, psychiatric hospitalizations and domestic abuse rates all dropped, as well. More adults pursued higher education. Those who continued to work reported more job flexibility and more opportunity to choose employment they preferred.
Basically, now you can go prove to your asshole family members that society won’t collapse without poor people for you to feel better than.
i cant even make it past the table of contents im laughing too hard
WHAT IS THIS BOOK!?!
It’s called “Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes: A No-Bullshit Guide to World Mythology”
By Cory O’Brien, and it looks highly entertaining. :D
Gilgamesh: THE ULTIMATE BROMANCE
Give it here, now.
Sweet Fluffy Gods why is there not an audiobook version?
I need to find this book.
The first time Iv’e wanted to read something since Metro 2033.
guys…look what we did :D
[echoes of eleven blowing up cybermen to get information in the distance]
People who don’t love Nine are the dumbest.
People think that Nine is dark sullen and a killer. They’re wrong. Nine’s not dark. He’s light and happy and in love. He wears a leather jacket and is the closest Doctor to the Time War, but he is not dark. He is a light person who is fighting his dark past. He knows what he’s done and is fighting to right his wrongs. He just wants everyone to live.
Eleven on the other hand is the exact opposite. People think he’s a puppy in a fez. They’re wrong. He is not happy and joyful. He’s careless. He is having adventures while ruining lives and killing people. He is the man who forgets. He has forgotten the pain he felt after what he did and now is so comfortable killing.
He doesn’t remember Nine. Nine, the Doctor with depression. Nine, the Doctor who fell in love with an nineteen year old shop girl who didn’t need a magic back story to be special. Nine, the Doctor who went and saved his friends without killing. Nine, the Doctor who chose to lose instead of causing loss.
Nine chooses to give up being a god. Eleven pretends he is a god. Nine would make a merciful god. Eleven acts like a vengeful god. Nine is a puppy in a leather jacket. Eleven is a a killer in a fez.

In conclusion, Ron is awesome. The end.
and he put his shoes and socks on dobby to be buried in because he knew how much dobby loved clothes. disliking ron weasley’s character makes 0 sense.

alright you guys have posted some pretty bad jokes on here but not one comes close to this doozy
so there’s a far-off place that consists of a perfectly triangular lake surrounded by land, with three kingdoms on the three sides of the lake. the first…
