Tanker

Jeg kan ikke vente til jeg flytter hjemmefra. Får min egen lejlighed. Synge når jeg vil. Danse nøgen foran spejlet. Ryge på altanen med musik i ørerne. Jeg vil gerne kunne tage hjemmefra uden at skulle aftale noget med alle først. Jeg vil gerne bare kunne efterlade alt bag mig for en stund og være fuldt ud i stand til at trække vejret. Jeg kunne invitere dig over når jeg ville. Vi kunne have sex når vi ville. Vi ville ikke have nogen grund til at tage tøj på igen bagefter, vi ville bare kunne nyde hinanden nøgne. Giv mig lidt selvstændighed, og fjern angsten fra at bo sammen med andre. Jeg er træt af at trille tommelfingre og vente på at blive voksen. Jeg vil bare gerne ud og være ung og i live.

It’s official, Justin Trudeau and his government have approved the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion project. I will be among many people that will participate in sitting in front of the bulldozers to stop this horrible project. Here’s 10 reasons why:


1. We have a duty as a nation to do whatever we can to make amends with the original peoples of this land, and as this process has run roughshod over the very valid concerns of first nations that live along the proposed route


2. This project is slated to add 162 megatons of carbon pollution to our atmosphere, that’s more than double what the whole province of BC emits. That is simply appalling at a time when we should be drastically reducing our fossil fuel use

3. There has been no real review of the project, in that the review they went through didn’t allow cross-examining kinder morgan’s evidence or any mention of climate change… for an oil pipeline


4. Our flagrant disregard for the climate and indigenous rights take away considerable credibility from Canada on the world stage


5. It’s been over a month since the minor diesel spill in Heiltsuk territory and it’s still not cleaned up, I can only imagine what would happen with raw bitumen that SINKS to the bottom of the ocean where it cannot be retrieved


6. The endangered Southern Resident Orcas might be wiped out just by the sound of the massive tankers, this is because they communicate by sound and the noise of supertankers would make it near impossible to hunt or even live.


7. kinder Morgan wants to DRILL THROUGH A MOUNTAIN, the project as proposed would go right under SFU, and univerCity, where thousands of people live.


8. There is one way off the mountain and if there were a leak the people up there would be stranded for DAYS without any help.


9. The burnaby fire department said it would take at least 4 days to get any fire in the expanded tank farm under control.


10. Millions of dollars are made annually from ecotourism, and it only takes 1 spill to wipe it all out


I could go on because this project is such a bad idea but i’m gonna ask you all to do whatever you can to help. Whether it’s bringing coffee and treats to the land defenders on bby mountain, convincing your conservative uncle this project is a bad idea, donating to groups that are dedicated to stopping this project, or even joining us in direct action EVERY little thing matters and it’s gonna take all of us to stop this pipeline.

Hvorfor skal det altid handle om at kneppes så hårdt og hurtigt som muligt? Med tænder der støder mod hinanden i ivrighed og tøj der ikke kan smides hurtigt nok. Med lange røde mærker og skrig af lyst efter mere. Hvad hvis jeg bare gerne vil elskes? Med langsomme kys og gåsehud og en enkelt omgang sex der vare fire timer. Med fingrer der skubber trøjen langsomt op. Med læber der kysser hver en nylagt centimeter af hud. Med tunge vejrtrækninger og våde øjne og en opbyggende ekstase, i stedet for en orgasme der nærmest skal tvinges fra et gennembanket underliv.

jeg håber

jeg håber, at du stadig tænker på mig

jeg håber, at du engang i mellem tjekker mine sociale medier, for at se om jeg har lagt noget nyt ud, for at se på mig

jeg håber, at du har det godt, for selvom du var et svin overfor mig, ønsker jeg dig alt godt, for jeg ved at du ikke altid har det nemt

jeg håber, at du finder en ny kærlighed. en du er klar til, og som du kan elske bedre end du elskede mig

jeg håber, at du engang skriver til mig, fortæller mig at du savner mig, og siger undskyld

jeg håber, at du kan se at du lavede lort i det hele, og kan tilgive dig selv

kom
kom til mig
kom til mig når du er træt
når du er trist
når livet er uoverskueligt
og verden er imod dig
så brygger jeg en kande kaffe
finder et askebæger
holder din hånd og nusser dit hår
og lytter mens du tømmer dit hjerte
hvis bare du lover
at du vil gøre det samme for mig

Limited availability of gas has been a problem across Puerto Rico ever since Hurricane Maria hit last week. This station in Rio Grande, about 15 miles east of San Juan, doesn’t have any gasoline at all right now. But it did have gas on Sunday night — until it ran out early Monday morning.

By the afternoon, about a hundred cars, along with scores of people with hand-held gas cans, were waiting for a new tanker to arrive.

“The problem is communication,” says the manager of the Gulf Route 65 gas station, Carlos de Armas. “We don’t know where the truck is.”

Like nearly everywhere on the island, Rio Grande lacks cellphone service. There is no way to get word from the truck driver, and so it’s anyone’s guess when the tanker might arrive.

At A Gas Station With No Gas, Puerto Ricans Settle In For An Interminable Wait
