where did you find a test to do this?
I suppose that’s “fine”, for someone that isn’t a native English speaker..?
Oh shit, this result is way better than I expected it to be.
Pretty good for a second language imo. Though they should add a ‘I don’t f*cking know’ option because I had to guess sometimes.
About 50% of the people in the comments are in the top 0.35%. Never realized that Tumblr is the pinnacle of intellect.
Do this one instead, much more accurate: http://testyourvocab.com/
i dont speak english D:
English is my second language
Well, ok then 😅😅😅
One uncanny aspect of translating is when I am grappling with a sentence that would sound particularly wrong if I tried to preserve any part of the original structure or idioms, because nothing about it matches the way one would phrase such an idea in my language, so what I need to do is mentally divorce the sentence from its syntax and vocabulary, to try and find how my language would give form to the same concepts. It always makes me wonder, what am I working with here? What is left when you remove the grammar and specific word choices from a sentence? I don’t know, a shapeless mental porridge of pure meaning, a nebulous feeling of what another brain has tried to express. I find it amazing that your mind knows just what to do with something so unfathomable—that it’s just like “right, right, give me a minute” as it distillates meaning out of words like it’s nothing then lassoes it down from the platonic realm of forms to give it a completely new shape. What is ‘meaning’ and how does it exist in your mind in this liminal moment after you’ve extracted it from a foreign language but haven’t yet found words in your own language that can embody it? I don’t know.
!!!please help out!!!
hey guys, im a disabled nb that needs help. i know ive asked for help before but this is a lot worse. recently, my ex boyfriend and his brother r*ped me. i talked very lightly of it and the reason i speak up now is bc im finally mentally ok to talk about it. im back living with my transphobic parents. im trying to move out asap but im very short on money due to having to leave my job. i’m roughly $750 short and my last paycheck won’t be enough to help me move out.
reblogging this one more time!
ultimately i think kindness is the most radical thing you can do with your pain and your anger. it’s like, you take everything awful that’s ever been done to you, and you throw it back in the world’s teeth, and you say no, fuck you, i’m not going to take this. you say this is unacceptable. you say that shit stops with me.
humans are fucking terrible and this awful world we live in will fucking kill you but if you are kind, if you are brave and clever and try really hard, you can defy it. you can impose on this bleak and monstrous structure something beautiful. even if it’s temporary. even if it doesn’t heal anything inside you that’s been hurt.
i’m gonna sleep and i’m gonna wake up and i swear by everything in this deadly horrible universe i’m gonna make someone happy.
i’ve seen a number of comments and tags where people feel that they must swallow or repress their anger in order to engage in kindness. that is not at all what i am recommending here. radical kindness is an expression of anger. it is not passive. it is not repressive. it does not require you, in any way, to forgive those that have fucked you up. it does not require you to be quiet.
it just requires that you be kind. viciously. vengefully. you fight back. you plant flowers. give to charity. play games. pet someone’s dog. scream into the dark. paint and write and dance, tell jokes, sing songs, bake cookies. you have been hurt and you don’t have to deny that hurt. you just have to recognize it in other people, and take their hand, and say: no more. enough. fuck this. no more.
have a cookie.
i will say this again: we are all going to die. the universe is enormous and almost entirely empty. to be kind to each other is the most incredible act of defiance against the dark that i can imagine.
The hormone blocker I’m on is called “spironolactone”.
It’s other main use is to treat prostate cancer in people over 60.
The thousands of deaths “linked” to this drug? People who died of cancer while taking it as a treatment.
Also, this is from a right-wing Christian anti-abortion website.
yall should reblog this version instead of the one with the link and the terfs on it. it doesnt matter how sick the own at the end is, dont spread their propaganda, and dont help them network.
And don’t forget to ask twice. As someone who’s had severe depression for most of his life, I can tell you that if someone asks how I’m doing or if I’m alright, my first answer will be to tell them that I am “fine” or even “good!” and lie through my teeth 100% of the time.
If your blog is safe not just for the well known members of the LGBT+ community but also for the lesser known ones that do not get as much media attention
- Non binary
And others who are not always brought up and that your blog is a safe place where they are supported
4. If the car pulls up to you run in the opposite direction.
5. Walk with your keys in your hands and keep a key between each finger
6. If they put you in the trunk kick out the headlights
7. If you get lost find a woman with a child. Never ask a man for help (this one was drilled)
That scream fire piece of advice is literally life saving
8. Watch your shadows and reflections, especially if someone is walking behind you. A split second notice is better than none and will help you.
Yes this last one really saves lives y'all I do it all the time
girls have to learn to view the world like international intelligence agents just to be safe walking down the street. smh.
guys pls pls pls reblog and girls pls pls pls be safe out there. terrifying and so sad that we have to worry about this on a daily basis
Kick them in the knee as hard as you can, knees are easy to dislocate and they’re not going anywhere with a fucked knee
If someone lays a hand on you ask them to stop, and if they don’t grab one of their fingers (not the thumb) and yank it back as hard as you can. If you go to court over an assault/sexual assault case the other person having a broken finger is a very clear indicator that you did not consent
If you are grabbed by behind, do these four actions:
- Stomp on their foot as hard as you can.
- Elbow their stomach as hard as you can.
- Punch their crotch as hard as you can.
- Punch their nose as hard as you can.
Bonus: If they have a hand over your mouth, bite down as hard as you can. Also, go for the eyes as soon as you have the occasion.
Reblogging and praying that all of you are safe and sound.
Read this and save a life - YOUR OWN
From a surgical nurse and certified CPR teacher:
Please pause for 2 minutes and read this:
1. Let’s say it’s 7.25pm and you’re going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job.
2. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated.
3 Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home.
4. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far.
5. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy who taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.
6. HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE? Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
7. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
8. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.
9. Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!!
10. A cardiologist says If everyone who gets this mail kindly sends it to 10 people, you can bet that we’ll save at least one life.
11. Rather than sending jokes, please… contribute by forwarding this mail which can save a person’s life.
12. If this message comes around you… more than once… please don’t get irritated… You should instead, be happy that you have many friends who care about you & keeps reminding you how to deal with a Heart attack.
please take the time and boost this post by reposting it and sending it to those you love because we all need to understand how to quickly deal with heart attacks
Hope you all stay safe.
We overwork people, and liberal response is
Overwork children so they’re more used to it as adults
Some extra digging reveals that the intent of this was not to actually extend the school day, but to make it mandatory for schools to provide activities and such that kids can take advantage of after classes are over for free so that low income families dont have to spend money on after school child care. Like boys and girls club, but every school in america is required to provide it. Which us a good idra, but it looks like everyone and their mother was wording it badly to make liberals and leftists hate it because republicans didnt want to spend more on schools to make it happen

Okay, I think i have it now and i appreciate it.
I’ve just made a bet against my Dad that if this post gets 2 million notes then i can get a Puppy. [like the one underneath]
I didn’t realise how much 2 million was and i couldn’t take that number down now. It should look like 2,000,000 in the notes bar.
He’s convinced that this will never reach that number, and very confident about it so Let’s prove him wrong!! He thinks this will get about 25 notes beofre it’s left in the dust.
You don’t have to do it for me. But for the point and to prove him wrong. He has to pay and everything so let’s make him suffer with it!!
I’m counting on you!!!
Remember it’s 2,000,000!
I have no issue contributing to this
