I know this is from quite a while ago, and I don’t know who you are, but thank you! That’s the most adorable thing I’ve heard said to me in a while.
Douglas Adams and Richard Dawkins: the ultimate real life brOTP.
50 years ago today one of the darkest days in American history unfolded.
We’ll never forget November, 22 1963.
The real 1960s began on the afternoon of November 22, 1963. It came to seem that Kennedy’s murder opened some malign trap door in American culture, and the wild bats flapped out. —Lance Morrow
I just saw a picture of JFK holding little Caroline and beaming at her with such joy and I swear I almost cried.
I’ve never felt particularly personally sad about JFK’s death before now. Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t happy about it or thought it wasn’t horrible, but for some reason I can’t explain, I just feel so affected by it today.
Feelings are weird.
Imagine how glorious it would be if the Ecce Romani textbooks were adapted into a children’s TV show a la Dora the Explorer.
My childhood would have been 753% better I tell you what.
"What was your favorite part?" "When Aurelia told Cornelia not to care about the people dying in a fire." "I liked that part too!"
I’m thinking Cornelia as Dora, Sextus as Boots, Marcus as Diego, and Eucledies as his own original character completely exasperated by their escapades and trying to put a stop to them, but always failing in hilarious ways.
Cornelius and Aurelia appear regularly as well, and Titus has to be a part of it as well, though God knows how good of an idea putting in a character who’s defining characteristic is drunk into a kid’s show is.
The whole ditch encounter is a two hour long special.
bullying has been so normalized that it’s now considered a necessary part of childhood
why should childhood have to involve abuse
"The conflict between brother and brother is one of the main engines of the Thor movies because, you know, they can’t stand each other but they love each other and they need each other." (Taylor)

Dear The Media: you are fucking racist ding dongs, get your shit together.
Ex-fucking-scuse you but if there’s one I would call more feminist than the other it wouldn’t be Miley. At least Nicki has her shit together.
We now interrupt your regular, scheduled broadcast to bring you this important notice from District 13.
The media has missed the point over and over again when it comes to the Hunger Games. From the coverage on entertainment news outlets to the movies’ own marketing campaigns, it’s gone far beyond the area of reasonable doubt. This isn’t them drawing a clever and deliberately problematic parallel to the Capitol - it’s them mirroring and celebrating the Capitol without a second thought.
The Harry Potter Alliance’s Odds In Our Favor campaign has been taking a stand against the Capitol - not just the ideas it represents but the reality it is becoming. This video highlights some of the most powerful parts of what we’re trying to do.
So apparently some people are blaming the tornadoes here in Illinois on the recent passing of the gay marriage bill.
You know, because the tornadoes just hit the gay parts of the state.
Thus the muses spake:
"JK you dealt kinda shittily with Dumbledore and other diversity aspects, so we’re gonna go ahead and fix this ourselves"
