highest in the world

when people defend the “Cis white guy is default” thing like “He’s meant to be an everyman we can all relate to and project on!” kindly remind them the largest ethnic group in the WORLD is Han Chinese and the highest gender percentage fluctuates so if you want an ACTUAL  “default” you want a 40 year old chinese person whose gender changes from year to year.

A compilation of all the skater cameos in Yuri!!! on Ice:

These little shoutouts to the real figure skating world amused me greatly while watching the anime, so I’ve decided to mash them all into one post:

Okay, yeah we’re all screaming over the mini-heart attack Yuuri gave us in the end. And we’re all so proud of JJ and his wonderful fiancé,,

BUT I’VE LITERALLY ONLY SEEN 3 POSTS ON THE FACT THAT YURI JUST FUCKING WON, AND SET THE WORLD RECORD FOR THE HIGHEST GRAND PRIX FINAL SCORE.

L O O K  AT HIM!! HE, A LITTLE 15 YEAR OLD RUSSIAN PUNK-WANNABE, JUST BROKE A WORLD RECORD. AND A WORLD RECORD HELD BY VIKTOR NIKIFOROV NO LESS!!!

bottom line is, give my little white tiger-fairy son some credit. He’s worked really hard and he did so well. I’m so goddamn proud of him.

Chrissy Teigen on the trend of the thigh-high slit at the American Music Awards

Holiday Essentials: The Thigh-High Trend

Hey bird lovers, as some of you may know Australia has the highest animal extinction rate in the world.

https://www.change.org/p/premier-don-t-make-them-go-extinct

Western Australias premier basically cares about economy growth in the state and nothing about the rare unique fauna and flora the state exhibits for everyone to enjoy.

Please do something to help at least one species from extinction. It takes 5 minutes out of your time. If you cant be bothered clicking on the link at the very least reblog to make people aware.

I don’t give a shit if it ruins your blog “aesthetic” this is probably one of the most important things you can do to end 2016 on a positive note.

Thank You President Obama!!!

Just over 8 years ago, while sitting in my apartment in Philadelphia, I watched as the race was called and Senator Barack Obama was elected President of the United States of America. This was the first presidential election that I was eligible to vote in, and it was for an African American.

For the last 8 years it has been a pleasure to see how President Obama, and First Lady Michelle Obama, have elevated the office of president, and first lady. He has operated with dignity and grace, without personal scandal or indiscretion. First Lady Obama has been a role model for all young women, not just black women. I will gladly teach my two-year-old daughter about Michelle Obama as she grows up!

Each time I watched President Obama speak I felt a sense of pride. To see an African American occupy the highest office in the country, the most powerful position in the world, was a consist reminder of what is possible!

Now, 8 years later, we sit on the eve of a presidential election in which Barack Obama is not on the ballot. For many millennials, this is our first time voting for president without Barack Obama being a candidate.

In this, President Obama’s last day as the reigning winner of the most recent presidential election, I have mixed emotions. On one hand, I am grateful for the opportunity to witness history, greatness, and class. I am proud of President Obama and proud of First Lady Michelle Obama and their family.

On the other hand, I am saddened that his eight-year term is coming to a close.

President Obama has set the bar high. The next President will have a tough road ahead of him or her.

Regardless of your political views, we can all celebrate the tenure of President Obama and cherish the time we had under his leadership!

Thank You President Obama for teaching us all that we can rise about the attacks and keep moving forward.

Yes We Can!

The view from NYC’s highest apartment. 432 Park Avenue is a supertall residential skyscraper in Manhattan, New York City. Originally proposed to be 1,300 feet (396 meters) in 2011, the structure topped out at 1,396 ft (426 m). Construction began in 2012 and was completed on December 23, 2015. The building has been much maligned by many city residents who find it an eyesore and believe it represents New York’s increasing cost of living and ostentatious wealth.

The building required the demolition of the 495-room Drake Hotel. Built in 1926, it was purchased for $440 million in 2006 by developer Harry Macklowe and razed the next year. Its footprint became one of New York’s most valuable development sites due to its location, between East 56th and 57th Streets on the west side of Park Avenue. (Source)

Why the Zodiac Signs don’t reply to your texts.

Aries: Taking pictures with the highest aesthetic level in the world or they’re baking the cutest mini cookies, each with a special theme, to give to all of their friends on special occasions.

Taurus: Living their second life that no one knows about or excelling, at like, 100 sports at the same time because they’re just THAT good.

Gemini: Not in the mood for anyone when they’d rather be screaming song lyrics at the top of their lungs or they’re busy making sushi.

Cancer: Ignoring you because you left them on read so their feelings are hurt (very badly). They’re trying to give you a taste of your own medicine (usually fails at this) or they’re busy crying because life has hit them hard.

Leo: Either sleeping till 2 in the afternoon or just scrolling on Tumblr without any self control to stop.

Virgo: Busy cuddling with their thousands of pets and would rather nap with all of them than deal with the stress of life or they’re out travelling the world.

Libra: They’ll always reply to your texts within a matter of minutes because they’re never seen without their cellular device.

Scorpio: Making plans to fight a b**ch or going out to party till the cows come home!

Sagittarius: They’re carrying too much food and too busy eating it or they just want to be alone (and eat) than do anything else.

Capricorn: Living that no wifi life at home and there’s no way they’d waste their data on messages, it needs to be saved to look up memes or they’re just gone ??? no one knows where they go ???

Aquarius: Sleeping, sleeping and some more sleeping. Also on Tumblr.

Pisces: Out on an extravagant date with their significant other or watching videos that make no sense but it drags them into an endless spiral.
