Stephen Colbert wants to talk to you about your boyfriend.
When Colbert sat down for Rookie’s “Ask A Grown Man” segment, he did so as himself, instead of the brash character he plays on his show.
Land of the free home of the rich
What really scares me is that they all have significantly cheaper health care AND education, which means Americans not only make the least, they pay the most.
P.S. This is not a Republican or Democrat issue, this is the fault of both parties and the stagnation of wages since the 70s. If you keep voting for the same two options, you’re going to get the same crap out either end.
Sometimes I forget that I basically live in a dystopia.
If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather.
Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do.

this is what chronic illness looks like. :( this is what I go through every single day. Only I’m at half empty before I even get out of bed… :\
exactly what chronic illness looks like. mental or physical. this is a great illustration, which perhaps people with more empathy than “you lazy bum” can relate to.

This genre is often urban and gritty. The morality of noir is ambiguous and the tone is dark, cynical, and corrupt. Noir has a pessimistic style and voice. X

When you’re burned alive, your eyeballs literally melt. So it’s safe to say fire melts eyeballs.
OUCH!Burns destroy skin, which controls the amount of heat our bodies retain or release, holds in fluids, and protects us from infection.
Body parts more affected: lungs, skin, veins, brain. The heart and liver are rarely affected when people set themselves on fire.

A response we had once to a similar question:
To the fire anon: There is nothing like seeing a fire-damaged building. A home in my neighborhood recently burned partially to the ground, and when I next passed it after the incident, I stood in front of it for at least ten minutes, just staring. If you have a chance to do study a burned building, definitely do so. Also, remember that after a building is burned to a certain extent, it will get leveled to the foundation before it gets rebuilt, which I think could have some huge impact in writing - LIKETHEMORNINGPAPER
Traces of coca and nicotine found in Egyptian mummies - WTF fun facts
well DUH. a lot of historians are still trying to process the fact that ancient egyptians knew how to build boats, which is ridiculous. why would they not be seafarers and explorers?
this is not new or surprising information at all. it pretty much day one of any african-american studies course.
the egyptians knew that if they put their boats in front of the summer storm winds it’d blow them right across the sea to the Americas and they shared that with the greeks.
It’s really hard for people to understand that everyone had boats, exploration, and trade interactions without the same level of murder, colonization, and violence that the Europeans did. It’s really hard for people to get that.
The Sea-Craft of Prehistory (book; Eurocentric as heck)
Scientific Evidence for Pre-Columbian Transoceanic Voyages (273 pages-for the hardcore only!):The only plausible explanation for these findings is that a considerable number of transoceanic voyages in both directions across both major oceans were completed between the 7th millennium BC and the European age of discovery. Our growing knowledge of early maritime technology and its accomplishments gives us confidence that vessels and nautical skills capable of these long-distance travels were developed by the times indicated. These voyages put a new complexion on the extensive Old World/New World cultural parallels that have long been controversial.

As if anyone could really forget the most quoted line in “The Avengers” — “I’ve got red in my ledger; I’d like to wipe it out” — it helps to have that line fresh in your mind when deconstructing what Widow does in the final act of what’s billed as a Captain America movie. Black Widow doesn’t wipe out the red in her ledger. No, she blasts her ledger out to the world, like it was the grisliest email forward of all time. We know from her heart to heart with Hawkeye that the shame she feels about what she’s done is real, and she hesitates when she realizes that taking down the bad guys means revealing her secrets. But she does it anyway, because she’s not just a spy anymore; she’s a super hero, and she makes a super hero’s sacrifice. (x)
here follows a disjointed tale of bilbo jumping on vines. remember kids, whenever you’re feeling down, let yourself draw self-indulgent hobbits and all will be well again. started because of something bellatook said and then i probably subconsciously started drawing bilbo’s butt because of ewebean’s sketches
