That came in like a wrecking ball.

This is the proper reaction.
my favorite college experience is when i had a 7am class and the kid next to me literally poured a monster energy drink into his coffee said “i’m going to die” and drank the whole thing
THIS. IS. ME.
It’s important to make friendships that are deeper than gossiping and drinking and smoking and going out.
Make friends who you can go get breakfast with, make friends you can cry with, make friends who support your life goals and believe in you.
alright but let’s be honest, we need all types of friends. you need the breakfast friends and you need the crying friends but you also need the going out friends, the makeup friends, and yes, even the drinking friends. the specifics may vary (don’t drink? maybe you have shopping friends, or book friends, or whatever you may have).
Don’t separate or stigmatize anything. friends are friends are friends. you need different ones, you need friends that are deeply conservative and friends that are way out liberals, because these are what help you stretch your mind and grow.
when you split things up like that, it’s as if you’re saying your drinking friends can’t support your life goals, or your breakfast friends can’t go out with you. what’s important is the friendship.

↳ captain america: the winter soldier - nick fury is attacked
Look at this. JUST LOOK AT HOW FUCKING BADASS THIS IS.
But you still truly fear for him, because this shit happens right in the middle of a city in broad daylight, where they’re gonna riddle him with bullets and tear him into pieces. And how most people would then regard him simply as a common criminal rightfully pursued by the police, who deserved the very public execution he’s about to get.
There’s a lot to be said about how they chose the “police” machinery to take down Fury, while Steve and company was pursued by nondescript Hydra thugs and the presumably private STRIKE team. They would have absolutely no problem to murder Fury then and there, but with Steve they know they simply cannot do it when there are witnesses around.
Not here, they say for Steve Rogers. But right here and right now for Nick Fury.
And also? Before the attack, Fury sees the white cops eyeballing him in his nice SUV and says “you wanna see my lease?” This man has decades of experience in intelligence operations. He’s been lead developer on an international security-based predictive analysis program. He’s an operations mastermind.
AND NICK FURY DOESN’T SEE THIS ATTACK COMING BECAUSE THE WARNING SIGNS LOOK EXACTLY LIKE THE AVERAGE INSTITUTIONAL RACISM HE SEES ON A REGULAR BASIS.
My family stopped by to drop off some food and blankets since the weather and my food supply have both plummeted this past week.
It’s been a bit of a lonely life, studying with no end in sight and barely a moment to breathe. But it was a very sweet moment, having my family stop by and keep me company for a bit. We don’t often realize how depressed or how sad and lonely we are until something happens to make us happy—you notice the lack of sadness.
It’s probably just the late night making me sentimental. Time for bed.
Someone help me out here:
is feminism saying “fuck those ‘sexy _____’ Halloween costumes! They [objectify/demean/etc] women! I’m gonna dress up as a [non sexy thing]. Girls shouldn’t wear those costumes!”
Or is feminism saying “if I want to be a sexy pirate for Halloween I’m going to be a sexy pirate for Halloween! Because it makes me feel sexy and I can do whatever the fuck I want!”
There is absolutely no question that feminism is the latter option. Feminism is about women get to do what they want, be it the sexiest sexy disney princess ever or the most 50s housewife you could imagine. And not just for Halloween.
STUDENT’S RESPONSE HERE: http://fortruthforjustice.wordpress.com/2010/05/16/ucsd-muslim-student-responds-to-david-horowitz-event/
(first of all, the source is a highly biased, right wing conservative source. however, there are some interesting links in the article which I wanted to keep along with the source)
I don’t know. I’ll give her the point about becoming emotional, especially since Horowitz seemed to be pretty antagonistic. Her question was vague, and his response was not relevant to her question. Maybe, maybe it’s possible that she became emotional enough to completely miss his question, and yet still had the mindfulness to reply forcefully and with conviction—“For it.”
HOWEVER…condoning Hamas in any way when their code and member’s oath literally and specifically says to exterminate every Jew on the Earth…is seriously alarming in itself. I am all for Palestinian rights. Their suffering is undeserved and both sides have erred. But I don’t believe that supporting an extremist group is the way to a long-term, peaceful solution to the problem. And she says that, she gives her support, after plenty of time for reflection, not just in the heat of the moment.
That’s what I find extremely problematic.
(I know she says she doesn’t support Hamas. But condoning them is the same thing, I don’t care what emotional words she couches it in. Hamas’ ambition to free the Palestinians, while admirable in itself, is innately intertwined with their ambition to commit a second Holocaust, and that is unacceptable.)
I want this written across my ceiling.
i love seeing girls close ranks when their fella is cheating, instead of defending him and attacking the other girls. like seriously. it warms my cold, cold heart so much.
i need the rest of this story, where did you put the body
People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.
This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.
This is CRITICAL
for those not in the know, night witches were russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of german lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. the planes were also so noisy that to stop germans from hearing them combing and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to german positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.
how the fuck is this not taught in every single history class ever
