  • According to the Root, Cook and Johnson were flying the Airbus 320 from Detroit to Las Vegas on Feb. 26. Johnson also made history in the past by becoming Delta’s first female African-American captain.
  • Johnson said in her feature interview with Delta Airlines’ blog that she gained her interest in flying with the help and motivation from her high school physics teacher. Read more (3/6/17 10:54 AM)

  • talking so fast you literally forget to breathe
  • i just read three pages of this book and i know i was paying attention but somehow i remember absolutely none of it
  • whoops i don’t have any plans for today so i guess i’ll just Die
  • being unable to remember the names of people you’ve known for months and talk to every day
  • panic attacks

I love that Breath of the Wild adds in details like this that make this version of Hyrule really feel alive. Do we need to know who Link hung out with 100 years ago? No, but it gives Link ties to the world from before he was asleep that extend beyond Princess Zelda and the quest to end Ganon. He has a history. He has friends and people who miss him.

All of us knows how it’s going to end the moment we heard [History Maker] for the first time, friends :) The History Maker is about Yuuri and Victor making history.

We are very close to the ‘moment of truth’. Victor and Yuuri are going to make it happen, they’re going to make history. 

The funny thing is now that we know that [History Maker] is taken Yuuri and Victor’s perspective if you read the lyric again, you might find that the first part is from Yuuri’s point of view

[Can you hear my heartbeat? Tired of feeling never enough I close my eyes and tell myself that my dreams will come true]

And the second part is from Victor’s perspective

There’ll be no more darkness when you believe in yourself you are unstoppable Where your destiny lies, dancing on the blades, you set my heart on fire

——————————————————–

Don’t stop us now, the moment of truth / We were born to make history / We’ll make it happen, we’ll turn it around 

[Yes, we were born to make history]

anyway it’s really gross that ben and his trashcan clan are using the hug at the end of the history music video as incentive to get people to vote because the only reason it was taken out was because it didn’t fit 1dhq’s garbage narrative. like i honestly don’t even want the video to win bc once again they’re taking this thing they know is going to make us respond, and are using it to make us respond, after royally screwing us with the video in the first place like!!!! that’s disgusting tbh !!!!

One of the truly insidious aspects of this era in capitalist development is that all the hierarchy is concealed by a thick layer of liberalism. Whereas decades ago, some racist fuck could openly declare that white people were superior (and that society agreed with them), nowadays racists are much more subtle and they will instead argue that society has attained equality (of course this doesn’t apply across the board, but it’s quite typical even so). The hierarchy was acknowledged and celebrated up until relatively recently, and after that recent point things are suddenly at “the end of history” and we’ve overcome those “dark moments in our past”. History has sort of vindicated the civil rights era and the other movements that pushed for greater social equality within capitalism’s limits, and now colorblindness and faux egalitarianism are the new ways to keep things continually stratified. As long as we implicitly give the thumbs up to a class-based society (as the faux egalitarian liberalism does), where most people sell their labor to an owner of the means of production to access resources, then we’re going to continue to see various other forms of stratification throughout society – class hierarchy is the material basis through which white supremacy, patriarchy, and ableism become actual; class gives bigotry power.

We should be asking ourselves what our Archduke Ferdinand moment will be. How will an apparently small event trigger another period of massive destruction. We see Brexit, Trump, Putin in isolation. The world does not work that way — all things are connected and affecting each other. I have pro-Brexit friends who say ‘oh, you’re going to blame that on Brexit too??’ But they don’t realise that actually, yes, historians will trace neat lines from apparently unrelated events back to major political and social shifts like Brexit.
Brexit — a group of angry people winning a fight — easily inspires other groups of angry people to start a similar fight, empowered with the idea that they may win. That alone can trigger chain reactions. A nuclear explosion is not caused by one atom splitting, but by the impact of the first atom that splits causing multiple other atoms near it to split, and they in turn causing multiple atoms to split. The exponential increase in atoms splitting, and their combined energy is the bomb. That is how World War One started and, ironically how World War Two ended.

larrieugh  asked:

hello! I was wondering if you had any tags or reasons on why people hate Ben Winston? I don't know if it's like common or not but I couldnt stand him ever since that 40 minute 1d interview... and he's buds with James cordon so I'm not sure if he's like an actual jackass or if it was just that one time... thank you!!! :-)

Hi! so yeah, it’s definitely common for people to loathe ben winston (and with good reason).

1) the four livestream is really only the tip of the iceberg but it really turned a lot of people off because it showed him very clearly siding with simon/OT over the boys. 

louis in particular was so uncomfortable and tense throughout it. and of course we can’t forget that bullshit 2.0 came like the day after the livestream because louis wouldn’t let ben winston bully him into giving another larry denial. @louis_ homophobic tweets to jenn selby were his punishment for not playing along on camera.

oh yeah and ben also mocked fans and trashed people who write fic. it’s pretty  much just 40 minutes of nastiness:

2) he’s TERRIBLE at his job. all of his videos post-stroy of my life suck. 

he’s lazy and doesn’t bother actually putting any effort into anything. in fact, he straight up plagiarized another band’s music video and copied it for ‘you and i’.

he throws other people under the bus for his own mistakes (blaming gabe turner for the ending of the history video rather than acknowledging that he too was responsible for the final cut.)

3) he’s an asshole to fans who dare to ask for diversity in videos. in ‘night changes’, all the hands of the girls going on dates with the boys were white and when people asked for better racial representation he basically told them to stop complaining and ‘use their imagination’ to pretend they’re white (???)

4) he’s tweeted some really nasty misogynistic things during the last fifa world cup about how ‘wives and kids shouldn’t be on the pitch’ to celebrate with their husbands when their team wins because football shouldn’t be ‘soft’ and there’s no place for them there.

5) during mitam promo on james corden’s show/carpool karaoke he was a total dick to fans who asked why he’d unnecessarily cut extra footage of the boys going through the mcdonalds drive-thru (he’s always a condescending dick to fans).

6) he always chooses to back the official company line over his friendship with the boys (there was this awkward incident where he retweeted a richard lawson vanity fair article with a casual larry mention in it and then backtracked like a moron when antis/hets pointed it out (richard shaded him though which was great).

so yeah tl;dr it’s not just a one time thing. he’s an actual jackass.

Part I: 

Morning

There’s sweat dripping down his face and neck. He dabs it off with his hand towel and proceeds to dig through the contents of his duffel bag as you watch from around the corner. You know it’s wrong but you can’t stop yourself from staring. He’s one of the most simultaneously loved and hated students at school. Kind and considerate when you’re on his good side, and a complete nightmare when you’re on his bad side. Just last week, he made your friend cry after she accidentally spilled tea on him in the cafeteria. It was a total disaster. You went home furious that night, praying for the chance to get back at him … and now you have it.

For whatever reason, the academically challenged jerk-off is using the girls locker room. All you have to do is scream bloody murder and the school administration will handle the rest. It’s fool proof … but the second you open your mouth, he reaches back and tugs his shirt off. You rapidly lose focus. Whatever you were going to say is shoved all the way down your windpipe, and you watch in quiet disbelief, holding your breath as he undresses in front of your eyes.

The soft th-thump in your chest grows louder and heavier as you pan a look down his body.
