at this point it seems like tumblr staff is TRYING to drive off its userbase. First they’re like “hmm, our site is entirely known for the mass amounts of porn on here, so lets wipe that shit out! What else? Let’s make making custom themes damn near impossible! now, just for fun, lets make looking at the damn thing give you a migrane! THAT’LL drive those weird ass kinnies off our site!” but they dont know that anyone who’s still on this site has been using it for 5 years at the absolute fucking minimum and no matter how many times they knock the site down a peg we’re still gonna be here posting our callouts and unfunny ass text posts. tumblr staff is frantically dumping purell on us and we are the 0.01% of germs that it wont fucking kill
just thinking about how shiro would have thought of adam to get him through a year of being tortured by the galra (i mean they were in love and engaged, despite the pre-Kerberos fight) and how he probably would use that at motivation to get home while piloting the lions and ending the war and then how the writers completely sent it all crashing down by having adam die before he came back.
shit now i made myself mad
the game of thrones guys deciding to speedrun the ending to their own show because they were bored with it and wanted to move on to their big star wars project but then people hated the got ending so much they lost their deal with disney and were taken off star wars is one of THE funniest things to ever happen
YES THEY ARE REAL AND ACTUALLY BANNED UNDER THE GENEVA CONVENTION
Double Edged Sword: double cool
Triple Edged Sword: Illegal under the Geneva convention
Quadruple Edged Sword: Darth Maul but real
i really don’t understand the expression “a double-edged sword” because you get double the sword? that’s like, the opposite of a problem???
Quintuple Edged Sword: Calm down
Is a tripe edged sword really a thing and/or illegal under the Geneva convention?
THEY CREATE TRIANGULAR WOUNDS THAT DONT HEAL NORMALLY BY THEMSELVES OFTEN LEADING TO A HORRIBLE DEATH BY INFECTION
this is what they look like, in case you were curious
My favorite genre of fandom headcanon is that a fictional man has no ass. It is almost always in response to people being attracted to him. It’s like, you want him? Well he may bring a lot to the table but he is NOT bringing it to the chair! You still want him now? This bootyless fellow? This assless chap?
In devastating news today, 26 Oct 2020, VicRoads has destroyed 300 years of living cultural heritage.
The Directions Tree (pictured above) was felled today at around 1.30 pm Australian Eastern Standard time.
This tree was over 300 years old. It was a place where the Djabwarrung people could go to seek spiritual guidance and to feel connected to their ancestors.
And it was cut down today, to make way for a road that has multiple other viable routes.
This has been an ongoing battle since 2018. There have been protectors on site since June 2018, and multiple attempts over the years by VicRoads to bully or intimidate protestors off the land, including getting the police to show up in drives to arrest protectors. Police have also spent the last two years specifically targeting known protectors, going so far as to jailing one (indigenous) man for six months because he had an expired drivers licence. When that one finally made it to a judge, the judge was disgusted and and threw the whole case out, cause who the hell imprisons someone for six months for having an expired licence?? Cops with a vendetta, thats who.
There have been multiple legal challenges from multiple directions over the route of this road, and the fact that the planned route requires the destruction of three indigenous heritage sites. There is an open court case at the moment, set for December, and by moving ahead with works and destroying one of the sites, VicRoads is in direct contravention of a court order.
Not only did they cut it down, they also then loaded the tree onto a truck and drove it up and down the stretch of road past one of the other sites where the protectors are camped. They know full well how devastating this destruction is, and they drove thw felled tree back and forth in front of the people who’ve spent three years protecting this tree, deliberately taunting them.
The destruction of the Directions Tree is an abominable crime. And its one that they want to commit again. Theres a Grandfather tree – over 700 years old – that is next in their firing line.
If youre in Australia, please call or email Dan Andrews (Victorian premier), Sussan Ley (Federal Environment Minister) or your local MP and protest the destruction of the Directions Tree, and ask them to protect the Grandfather Tree.
If youre international, please email them. Feel free to call, too, but international rates are pricey, and them getting flooded by international emails will be really, really helpful and will show them that the world’s eyes are on them.

I love it when the little kids I’m teaching online have complete and total misconceptions of what’s going on. So far, I’ve encountered the following:
1. I had been teaching a little girl for several months, when one day she said to me: “My mother says you’re a real person, not an app. If you’re a real person, show me your husband.”
2. I was about to end a class, but the little girl I was teaching didn’t want the class to end. She turned to her mom and asked if she could please watch one more episode. Turns out she was under the impression that I was a very interactive TV program.
3. I couldn’t find my marker in class today. The boy I was teaching was like, “What’s your apartment number? I’ll come up and help you find it!” The boy lives in China and I live in the United States. I guess most people he knows live in the same building as him, so he assumed I did too.
4. I had been teaching a kid for quite some time when I mentioned my age in class. She was like, “Wait, you’re an adult????” She’d thought I was twelve.
love is so embarrassing . also the only thing that matters
why are so many people on this post saying things like “oh so what abt aromantic people then 🙄” like um… stumbling as u give up your seat for an elderly lady on the bus. stroking your friend’s hair as they cry in your arms. someone you care abt making you a long lovely playlist of songs you might like. attentively listening to your sibling as they talk excitedly about something they care abt. the sound of hundreds of people in unison singing a song they love at a concert. someone peeling a clementine and saving half of it for themselves and giving the other half to you. letting your cat crawl all over you even though her claws are scratchy. sitting in comfortable silence with someone. the pride shining in your grandfather’s eyes when you facetime him and tell him abt what you’ve been up to. taking a sip of your friend’s boba. people grinning at you when u blow out the candles on your birthday cake… these things aren’t love to you? you guys don’t consider that love? really? truly?
