you know how the sentence “i never said she stole my money” has a different meaning depending on which word you put the stress on? same is true of “have you ever had sex with a pharaoh?” i’ve been thinkin about that for like 10 minutes now

"He showed the words ‘chocolate cake’ to a group of Americans and recorded their word associations. “Guilt” was the top response. If that strikes you as unexceptional, consider the response of French eaters to the same prompt: ‘celebration.’"

I wonder if anyone ever looks at me while I’m doing something and thinks I’m pretty. Because I do that all the time to people.

So I learned from my friend that coconut water can be used as an emergency blood transfusion, and of course my first thought was “So, can a vampire drink coconut water?”

and of course we had this idea of these tropical vampires being horrified when these old world vampires come and are still drinking blood like some sort of monster.

Write a book

a spirit that preys on the insecurities of young girls. on approaching one, it whispers venomously backhanded compliments, and delivers unneeded, often damaging advice in order to undermine the girl’s confidence and control her so that she may be devoured easily by the spirit.
the best way to ward it off is to appear unfazed by its insidious manipulations and stare directly into its great, luminous eyes until it gets uncomfortable and leaves.

So a boyband walked onto the Britain’s Got Talent stage and everyone thought they were going to sing One Direction or something typical…and then they sung Stars from Les Miserables.

This is the best thing ever. Just listen to those harmonies <3


A toast, to the proud Lannister children.

Today, I read an article about a woman with HIV who was raped. The man that attacked her is now HIV positive. All of the commentary surround this was about how she should have told him she was HIV+ and that women with HIV should have a badge or special underwear so that this doesn’t happen to another man. It is 12:12am and I am already done with the world. 

That is rape culture

THIS POST WINS FOR THE MOST HORRIFYING THING I’VE READ ALL DAY

The Captain America/Puerto Rico pic  AND Marvel’s majestic response. lol

One small problem with that argument — the Puerto Rican flag was designed in 1898.

It was outlawed until 1952 — Puerto Rico was forced to fly only Spanish flags until 1898, and then only American flags until 1952.

The Puerto Rican flag is actually based on the Cuban flag, designed in 1848:

Just reverse the blue and red in Cuba’s flag and you get the Puerto Rican flag (this similarity was intentional).

As for Cuba, before people start saying that they stole their design from the U.S., their design incorporates three blue stripes, representing the three parts that the country was divided during the independence wars, central, occidental, and oriental areas of the country, and two white stripes symbolizing the purity of the patriotic cause. The red triangle stands for the blood shed to free the nation, which is placed where the star is, symbolizing the sky turned red from the blood shed in battle. The white star in the triangle stands for independence.

In the U.S., the stars represent independence and the stripes represent the original 13 colonies. And of course we stole our 1977 design from the East India Company and this flag which dates back to 1707:

There’s just not a lot of creativity in flag making. Everybody just steals designs and ideas off of each other.

Incidentally, Marvel’s response is also incorrect. The first issue of Captain America went on sale on December 20, 1940 (with the cover date of March 1941), so there’s no way that the Captain’s look was designed the year after the comic was released.

And you’ll notice, on the cover, that Captain America has more than three red stripes. They wrap around him.

Everyone involved stole their design, but Puerto Rico stole theirs from Cuba, and Marvel stole theirs from the American flag.— who stole their design from the East India Company.

And as long as I’m posting a bunch of flag images, here’s how the U.S. flag, with its then-48 stars, looked when Captain America was designed (Alaska and Hawaii were not states until 1959):
