Perspective. 

"Looting? I thought these were supposed to be nonviolent protests"

I know it’s incredible! People are literally coming out of the woodwork to comment on this photoset to focus on the looting headline with “well yes it is nice they were helping people hit with the tear gas, but stealing is still wrong uwu” as if they’re back to kindergarten morality.

Like everyone who’s gone to boot camp I’ve been tear gassed. They put about 50+ of you in a gas chamber and toss it in. You have to stay there until your rank is allowed to exit. Before that though, you have to say your name, rank, and social security number. You then exit and file into ranks (again) outside and are not allowed at any point to rinse your face or eyes for the entire day.

That right there? Easily the worst part of boot camp. My eyes were literally swollen shut. I was blinded for a good 30 minutes and my chest hurt for days.

I have zero problem and not and ounce of judgement for people raiding a mcdonalds that can easily afford to repair damage for ANYTHING to help ease the shittiness that is being tear gassed. Esp because every one of us in boot were medically sound to deal with tear gas. Children, asthmatics, people prone to panic and anxiety attacks, the elderly as sooo many more are NOT going to handle tear gas well at ALL.

Or that smoke the police use either.

It’s easy to sit there and judge someone from the safety of your home and say things like “it’s just tear gas” or “it can’t be that bad”.

Fuck you. As someone who HAS been gassed, you need to stfu.

I remember all the preparation they did to get us ready for the gas chamber in boot camp. We were taught how to handle ourselves, how to control our breathing, not to touch anything, how to avoid the worst of the gas. But it still didn’t matter. I remember taking in that first breath and feeling like I had just been kicked in the chest. I remember a few guys in my platoon falling down and vomiting. We knew the gas wasn’t as bad on the floor but we were the fifth platoon through and the vomit kept us from bending over more than absolutely necessary. I remember a few guys, guys in peak health training to be infantrymen, breaking ranks and running for the door only to be dragged back in kicking and screaming until they said name, rank and serial. They were expecting it, trained for it, bragging about how it wouldn’t bother them.
I remember standing there with all of the mucus from my nasal cavity on the front of my ACUs and thinking to myself “This is the nonviolent option?”
Covered head to toe and my skin still itching I looked down at the silver wedding band hanging next to my dog tags and realized that the gas had eaten little pits into its surface.
I stood there and thought of all the news reports I had seen over the years. The uprisings and revolutionaries being gassed, the crowds running from men in masks.
That’s the moment I got it, staring at my ruined wedding band, that’s the moment I realized terrorism isn’t about bombs or who is using them. It’s about controlling people through fear. It’s about removing their ability to act reasonably, to make them seem like the monsters. Terrorism is about triggering people to fight or flight then blaming them for not being rational. It’s about power. Remove someone’s power to act with reason, and you remove their humanity.

This just punched me in the heart.

THE TRAN’S:

I would watch a SPN spin off about the the Tran’s. What happened when Tiger Mommy took her Ghost Prophet son and left the bunker? I bet they became a new breed of hunters. Kevin using his lack of corporeal restrictions to get in and out of locked rooms and to shake down the other supes for info. Linda looking like a fragile suburban next door neighbour on the surface but kicking demon ass as she hunts for Crowley believing he can fix things, bring Kevin back because that son of a bitch owes them.

Each week, they battle monsters while trying to find a balance between both worlds. Kevin’s got himself a cute young reaper who isn’t so good at actually reaping him but instead ends up helping them because of feelings. And they flirt a little but Kevin for all his Winchesterization is still a nerdy dork so he never quite makes a move and it’s adorable to watch.

And Mama Tran builds a network that Bobby would envy and absolutely everyone is terrified of her as she clears a path to redeeming her son because there is nothing she wouldn’t do, no door she wouldn’t open, no path she’d not tread, no being she hesitate to slay, if it meant giving her son his life back.

Yeah…I’d watch this.

And also they hook up with ghost!Jo and ghost!Rufus who helps them on the astral plane side of the hunting business.

and can they meet up with Jody? Because I want nothing more in the Supernatural universe than Jody and Linda to meet.

I don’t know if the Supernatural universe can handle that level of badassery.

School has started or will very soon so what would be better to do than to gather some great resources for a better school year?

  1. Evernote - keep your research at one place
  2. Khan Academy - over 4,200 educational videos
  3. Mathaway - helps you solve almost every math problem
  4. Cliffnotes - read and prep for school work
  5. Studious - great way to keep track of schedule
  6. iFormulas - references for mathematical formulas
  7. Pocket - save studies and articles much easier
  8. Science glossary - for those hard science words
  9. Studyblue - online flashcards for your next test
  10. Any.do - daily planner 
  11. Dropbox - don’t rely on your computer alone, make sure your notes and papers are safely uploaded online, just in case.
  12. Feed.ly  - gather all your fav websites for research or whatever in one place - I love this myself!
  13. Scribd - online library
  14. Self Control - we all know self control during work or school isn’t always around
  15. TED - lots of good presentation by interesting people
  16. Chegg - don’t have all the money for new text books? Chegg lets you rent many text books for much less than it costs to buy
  17. Duolingo - learning a new language? Then I’ll recommend this one
  18. Mint.com - make sure you’ve got your money straight 
  19. Alarmy - hard to get up in the morning? Well, this alarm makes you take a picture of your sink to turn it off!

I don’t care what kind of blog I have I will blog this no matter what.

"Craving sensation: feeling unreal" was such a huge part of the beginning of my relapse. I was convinced that people in front of me didn’t even exist and I kept touching things and trying to feel sensation. I’m reblogging because I know that that was so horrifying for me and I never want anyone else to go through it. 

In case someone needs to see this

Just in case this can help someone. Some suggestions also seem harmful (eating a hot pepper really hurts!!!) but steps to feeling better and not self harming is most important. Sending you love and light

STOP SCROLLING! Please reblog this vitally important information because at least one of your followers is self-harming. Thank you!

I need this

I’ve used some of these and they really do help! Reblogging forever simply because this could help save someone

Snow melts and flash freezes into an icy downhill river. A bunch of snowbanks in Russia began to melt, then it got cold again quickly, flash-freezing into the icy river you see here.
