“I heard police or ambulancemen, standing in our house, say, “She must have provoked him,” or, “Mrs Stewart, it takes two to make a fight.” They had no idea. The truth is my mother did nothing to deserve the violence she endured. She did not provoke my father, and even if she had, violence is an unacceptable way of dealing with conflict. Violence is a choice a man makes and he alone is responsible for it.”
No but there’s this one interview where he says basically “People won’t listen to you or take you seriously unless you’re an old white man, and since I’m an old white man I’m going to use that to help the people who need it”
This guy is amazing.
Holy shit, okay so this is hard to say because I don’t want 200 people going “what? you were going to? no you weren’t, you just want attention” but tonight I felt like shit, like utter shit and no one answered their phones and no one replied to my messages and just it got hard to be alone.. while scrolling down my feed I saw this and I just sat here for a good ten minutes deciding that.. you know what.. this is.. i can’t kill myself tonight.. so even if it doesn’t really go with your blog theme, I think you should really reblog it, because you could just save some messed up kid like me. Thank you, to the person I reblogged this off, you’ve saved my life and you don’t even know me. xxx if anyone ever wants to talk or some shit, and just no ones answering? well.. I have an askbox if you want it. I love you all pretties. xx
reblog and make a wish!
this was removed from tumbrl due to “violating one or more of Tumblr’s Community Guidelines”, but since my wish came true the first time, I’m putting it back. :)
OH MY FUCKING GOD, IT’S BACK ON MY DASH.
THIS SHIT WORKS OKAY, I AM DEAD SERIOUS.
The last time I saw this on my dash, I didn’t think it would happen, so jokingly I wished I could go to a fun. concert.
AND GUESS WHAT, I WENT TO A FUCKING FUN. CONCERT.
THIS SHIT WORKS, TRY IT.
What the Queen is thinking during this American “Government Shutdown”

In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.
The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.
He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.
and old Apple computers
the apple was a rainbow
Reblogging again because more people need to know about Turing dammit.
Real life creepypasta.
damn assholes in the past i wish those people who banned homosexuality weren’t alive at all
That is exactly where the rainbow apple came from and one of the reasons Apple is awesome.
oh holy shit that is fucking awesome
I literally just read about this in the book I’m reading in class wow crazy timing tumblr
There is a bite taken out of the apple. OMFG.

Extremely awesome behind the scenes images of Star Wars over at imgur.
I scrolled through these with a huge smile on my face.
My first blog was a Star Wars blog in 2009 omfg love these
I’ll make sure to tag all my posts so you can saviour them. :P
Hah, I mean I love reading other people’s thoughts on all versions of the story! I’m…
I can’t say what happened in the years while I was gone, but I CAN say that no, it hasn’t been doing that forever. Having a very clear division between the different versions (manga, sub, and dub at the time) was VERY much what was done. Insisting one on another was seen as rude as fuck.
I’ve been in the fandom since 1997ish and I don’t remember it being rude to do so. In fact, the comic was being used to explain some holes in the cartoon, specifically because the comic is the original source material, as early as I can remember. “Sailor Cosmos is the Light of Hope” being the most prevalent mash up.
But the internet is a big place, so it could have been just my corner. XD
(ah shit, I just dated myself, didn’t I)
Very excellent point on it being particular corners of fandom. Especially back then, when you had to really go out of your way to find what you wanted. It was a lot more niche then, I think. I’m speaking of AFSM, which WAS the fandom as far as I personally was concerned. But there were the baby steps of web forums popping up at the time, and IRC rooms, and mailing lists were like THE THING (which I never got into), and you could have hundreds of those all generally about the same thing but with incredibly specific focus. It was a lot easier back then, I think, to be really tuned into (or tunnel-visioned) to JUST the sliver of fandom you wanted, and have hundreds of people right there with you. You can’t really do that these days on a huge community scale.
I always thought that (AFSM) was the defacto place for SM fandom back in the day. IRC seemed to be pretty popular too. I remember someone giving a play-by-play as the last episode aired in Japan (via IRC).
The anime and Manga were two different beasts. I think there were instances of speculations about how character XYZ could be this or that given the way the manga was going. I have seen some folk state over the last few years via various forums that since the Manga had certain characters a certain way, that it was canon and that the anime was in the wrong since it didn’t jive with the original artistic vision. ^_^; Sorta nice that there are no more Dub vs Sub wars :) (I do miss Otaku Wars though)

This is one of those epic drawings that I MUST reblog ♥.♥
It’s art like this that makes me go WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIIIIIIIIIII
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the only mention of Chibiusa’s returning to the future; no, the only mention of Chibiusa herself (save for her in photos and in Usagi’s daydream in episode 198) in the entire Stars season. I call bullshit.
Chibiusa, no matter what people may think of her, was an EXTREMELY important character in the series and impacted the storyline as well as the other characters in countless ways. And yet she is tossed aside, with just a casual MENTION. She didn’t even get a subplot about her leaving after it’s shown ONCE in episode 167 (where she is unsuccessful).
Basically, I’m saying that Chibiusa deserved MUCH more than what she was given here.
Umm… have you been watching the same show? Technically she was in Stars up till episode 172… Unless you feel the Nehelenia arc does not count as part of the Stars Season which spans from 167-200. It would have been interesting to see her come back somehow like they did in the Manga.
Hello I am an adult with an anxiety disorder and I lost my comfort item.
My bunny is named Blue Bunny and she is my most important thing in the world. I would go without water sooner than I would give her up. I got her 18 years ago and she hasn’t slept without me since. Her ears and paws are threadbare in places, and her head is floppy and soft.
I got off the Amtrak Bus stop in La Cresenta, CA on the north side Honolulu Ave west of Lowell Ave.
Please PLEASE signal boost this. I have contacted the bus company but they haven’t found her and I’m scared.
Don’t worry sweetheart we’ll find her
We’ll get her.
hon bun i live in san diego, ca and i swear i will look as soon as the sun comes up that’s a promise
Best of luck!!!
