Sure Beth might’ve known about Helsinki, but, have you considered Helena knowing about Helsinki.

Helena hunting down Euroclones and suddenly a large group of them around Finland are just gone and she doesn’t realize why.

Or

Helena as an instrument of Helsinki.

Maggie Chen and the Proletheans actually another reaching arm of Topside.

Helena being manipulated not just as part of the Proletheans’ operation, but as part of Topside without even realizing it. Helena as a weapon utilized to wipe out clones when need be. Helena as a weapon deployed in 2006 to solve a corporate problem, but convinced she was serving a righteous cause.

Helena having answers she doesn’t even realize are answers.

Helena knowing things. 

HELENA AS A KEY.

Passion

Requested by lekaleidoscopedemarine

I am working with the idea that Killian and Emma show their passion in all they do: physical gestures, words, kisses; they are themselves passionate people. Killian is usually better with words than Emma, but she is not leave behind

I choose to begin with their first kiss because it was the moment they give up on their attraction. But it was more: it was descovery for them. Emma said she was feeling “good”, Killian admitted his feeling for her. And the scene in Dark Hollow was the perfect mix between words and actions: a passionate speech (confidence, but putting all the choise on Emma) and corporal language. Emma was positively speechless.

Their waltz in the Enchanted Forest was all I could have wanted: they were happy and relaxed and smitten and beautiful. Killian just looked so handsome in his prince’s clothes.

And season 4 just give us many fantastic moments. Really I love 4x04: it was Emma the one who began the conversation about “pillage and plunder”, not Killian. And he just later has to give Emma a RED ROSE a symbol of love of passion. They relationship is slow burn, and I love every moment of it.

They just can’t get their hands off their beloved, and really they have to kiss against a wall!? It was just … perfection

Their passionate declarations of love are the best: because they are learning to trust the other body and soul; they are trusting with their fears, their feelings… And Emma is just so protective with her pirate, she is declaring her love for Killian every time she defends him

Somebody write a fic where R!Mabel is a demon hunter and makes a living taking down all the supernatural stuff but can't get this one irritating demon to leave her alone.

She slowly starts noticing how this demon can sneak up on her even with all the charms she has, he’s never noticeably affected by her blessed accessories, and he’s had her prone to attack NUMEROUS times but he never laid a claw on her? Also she’s pretty sure the last time they met, he wasn’t even summoned in her general area, so how was he corporeal?

The poor demon hunter that stays in denial for too long that all signs point to this annoying demon being Alcor but she can’t believe he hasn’t killed her yet.

Well I got that oil company job, which is fantastic. THEN last night my wife and I are out on a friday night looking at baby stuff (she was looking at important things I was looking at toys), my Sister calls and informs me her husband put in a good word for me at his manufacturing job and his hiring manager was VERY interested in me.

So. That’s pretty neat. Just ready to be back in a professional corporation environment. This laborer for a small business shit ive been doing for the past yearish is NOT for me. Especially where I am currently at, work 6-10 hours OVER time, never get paid for it, and watch your boss and his son roll up to work on Fridays driving brand new Mustang Cobras.

Moutain people, or the people of the Appalachians, are a culture that has ignored by most and abused by a select few. These photos you may think are ancient. But they are all taken within the last 30 years.

This is happening right now, in America.

The reason the people are so impoverished is because of large mining corporations convincing the native folk to give up their rights to the land.

99 percent of the residents control less than half of the land. Thus, though the area has a wealth of natural resources, natives are often poor. Since at least the 1960s, Appalachia has a higher poverty rate and a higher percentage of working poor than the rest of the nation. [source]

You would think this would be common knowledge. But this is sadly, not. Even I, as a resident of the Southeastern US, had no idea this ethnic group existed until a little over a year ago. 

This is due mostly to the North/South divide that exists on the east coast. Following the civil war, the problems of the South were marginalized, even among it’s on people, in favor of what was important to the Northern half of the east coast. Therefore, overtime these people have become forgotten. 

Since the 19th century, coal operators and plantation bosses have discouraged education and civic action, allowing workers to become indebted to plantation stores, live in company housing, and generally make themselves vulnerable to the interests of their powerful employers. Community members who experienced a justifiable fear of punishment for speaking out against the corruption of the status quo developed a habit of compliance rather than democratic institutions for social change. Fearful of punishment, middle class residents allied themselves with the elites rather than challenging the system. [source]

This corporate abuse is not where their struggle ends. 

The Appalachian people have been made victim to the horrors of eugenics, with government approval.

Buck v. Bell, 274 U.S. 200 (1927), is a decision of the United States Supreme Court, written by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., in which the Court ruled that a state statute permitting compulsory sterilization of the unfit, including the intellectually disabled, “for the protection and health of the state” did not violate the Due Process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Mountain people have had trouble with obtaining educations due to their isolation and have therefore been ruled by most to be inherently intellectually disabled. This takes root in many jokes in popular American culture. 

One of the most notable to me was a apart of my childhood. On the popular children’s series The Amanda Show, Amanda Bynes and Drake Bell would dress as mountain people and tell jokes while smacking eachother on the head with household objects.

Now you would think with the blatant continual oppression of these people, Tumblr would be actively seeking to defend and help them? 

Well, that is where you are very, very wrong.

I find my feelings on the subject best summarized by The Seams and The Story:

I’ve noticed that among acquaintances of mine, including radicals who claim to have firm understandings of privilege and oppression, stereotyping and making jokes about rural Appalachians is acceptable. While these same friends call people out for enacting other forms of oppression, they don’t consider making derogatory comments about hillbilly culture as part of the same paradigm of racist-classist-patriarchal-capitalist-white supremacy they are fighting against.

Now that this has all been said I hope you can all see these people in a different light, and hopefully understand the people of Appalachia better.

TDLR; These people have been actively oppressed for over a century and are still oppressed to this day, and yet i still find people on my dash regularly laughing about “stupid backwoods southern people”. This culture is real. These people are suffering. And you are horrible. 

Feel free to add things. 

And feel free to take a look at the sources I used:

weh weh I’m a giant baby, yeah, alright, okay

Healthcare benefits are tricky when it comes to the undead.

Firstly, you have to consider the fact that “undead” is a vastly blanket turn – covering non-corporeal phantasms that are recordings of events passed without the sentience necessary to interact with the present, to highly advanced liches that might as well be considered gods, considering their power.

With the right partner, you can focus on destroying what matters most to you. Evil Supply Co. has counseled hundreds of villainous organizations, minion guilds, and hench organizations on the ins-and-outs on undead healthcare reform.

Have your evil people scry our evil people for a consultation tonight.

Can the courts liberate the Bank of Canada?

Once a nation parts with the control of its currency and credit, it matters not who makes the nation’s laws. Usury, once in control, will wreck any nation.
– William Lyon Mackenzie King, Prime Minister of Canada, 1935


You know the old aphorism, “If a tree falls in the forest…?” Well, how about this one: if citizens win a significant victory in court against an autocratic government involving the fleecing of Canadians of billions of their hard-earned tax dollars and no one in the media actually covers it, did it really happen?

That might well be the question being asked over at the Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform (COMER), a very small and low-budget Toronto think-tank. With their lawyer Rocco Galati (of Supreme Court fame in the Nadon case) they have been steadily winning court battles initiated in 2011 that would oblige the Bank of Canada to return to its pre-1974 practice of lending the government money virtually interest-free. But the mainstream media has boycotted the story. Galati believes the Harper government has done some serious arm-twisting to keep the story buried.
