My country is celebrating 100 years of independence this year and we are also achieving marriage equality on the 1st of March. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our achievements as a nation than celebrating equality and human rights. Congratulations, Finland, may there be many more victories such as this and may your freedom last a thousand years!

(yes, the Finnish flag appears backwards because she’s waving it around)

The rules were clear; to participate, you needed four things:

A floral-printed dress (knee length), a shawl (red or pink), artificial flowers in your hair (three, at a minimum), but most important of all, of course, was the unibrow.

Hundreds of people came together at the Dallas Museum of Art Thursday night, in an attempt to set the record for the largest gathering ever of people dressed like Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.

Her work is on display at the museum as part of a wildly popular exhibit that also features paintings by Mexican artists Diego Rivera and Jose Clemente Orozco. The exhibit is among the museum’s top 10 most successful since 2000, according to the Dallas Morning News, with more than 75,000 visitors as of mid-June.

Thursday would have marked the influential artist’s 110th birthday, but she died in 1954.

So how many people now know who, or rather what Hiro is? ;D

Either way, we’re drawing to a close and one more comic part left, then the background part that’ll explain everything.

And reminder, I will not be answering questions about the content of this AU until after all 6 parts have been posted. Please look forward to the other parts! (´▽`) And if things click into place faster for you, don’t spoil it for others~!

                      <<PART 1>>       <<PART 2>>       <<PART 3>>

More on this AU and other links will be added to the MASTERPOST found here.

This project is, as of now, concluded. This was the original open-ended conclusion I had planned, and while I later wanted to add additional explanation parts afterwards, I no longer have the motivation to do so. If an additional part is ever added, the update will be listed in the above linked Masterpost.

Trump is 'eliminating arts funding programs'. It will save him 0.0625% of the federal budget
'It’s sad in a way because those programs aren’t causing the deficit. These programs don’t amount to a hill of beans'

It emerged over the weekend that Donald Trump is moving forward with his plans to axe the National Endowments for the Arts and the Humanities (which partially funds NPR and PBS), the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and other programs as he looks to prune public spending.

The White House budget office has drafted a “hit list” of programs, according to The New York Times, all of which cost under $500 million a year to run. In fact, they total approximately $2.5 billion - just 0.0625% of the projected $4 trillion budget.

“It’s sad in a way because those programs aren’t causing the deficit,” Steve Bell of the Bipartisan Policy Center told the Times. “These programs don’t amount to a hill of beans.”

Administration officials are apparently aware of the comparatively minuscule cuts, but want to make examples of the programs as ‘wastes of taxpayer money’.

Robert L. Lynch, head of Americans for the Arts, a nonprofit, sees it differently.

“The public wants to see agencies like the N.E.A. continue,” he added to the Times.

“There is always a debate, but there has been agreement among Republicans and Democrats that funding for the arts is a good thing, and it has been kept in place.”

Concurrently, Trump’s weekend Mar-a-Lago getaways are costing taxpayers an estimated $3 million.
