Spanish TV show on Netflix

So, in case you didn’t know, the first Spanish production on Netflix has just come out. It’s called Las chicas del cable (Cable Girls). It’s a period drama set in Spain in 1929, so if you want to practice your Spanish it’s perfect for you! It tells the story of four girls who move to Madrid to work for a phone company. 

What I love best about Kubo-sensei drawing Shachihoko!Viktor is that here she is again, calmly responding to our wild screaming that more or less goes like, “WHO THE HELL IS CHIHOKO I MUST KNOW OR ELSE I CAN’T LIVE???”

Kubo-sensei’s consistently subtle way of answering our maniacal screeching throughout the life of this fandom is so refreshing, here I am just laughing my head off. I feel like a banshee meeting its tamer, lmao. I love you, sensei! ❤

Of course we know about the U.S. strike on Syria in response to the gassing that we read about, and nobody denies that that’s a terrible atrocity, and yet, during wartime there are so many terrible atrocities I don’t know what calculus to use to compare them. If my child were literally starving to death before my eyes, I don’t know how I could say, “Well, at least he’s not being gassed.” I just don’t think I could think that way. I think this is equally an atrocity. And yet, in the U.S. there’s just no outrage about this. I’m sure there’s coverage here and there, but, it’s like everybody’s on some secret team I don’t know about. Everyone decides, “Today, we’re gonna be outraged about Syria, but the day we’re gonna be outraged about Yemen we haven’t managed to pencil into our calendars.” Isn’t that odd?

I had a dream i was in town and Dan and Phil walked past me and I was like screaming at them omg hi omg ily and they turned to me and said they didn’t speak Scottish so they couldn’t understand me. What a dream tbh

In March of 1907, Congress passed the Expatriation Act, which decreed, among other things, that U.S. women who married non-citizens were no longer Americans. If their husband later became a naturalized citizen, they could go through the naturalization process to regain citizenship.

But none of these rules applied to American men when they chose a spouse.

That Time American Women Lost Their Citizenship Because They Married Foreigners
