Exclusive: Trump says he thought being president would be easier than his old life
He misses driving, feels as if he is in a cocoon, and is surprised how hard his new job is.

“I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” Trump told Reuters in an interview. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”

Cassini gets up close & personal with icy Mimas

The first two images show off the giant Herschel crater, a distinguishing feature of this moon. The second gives a better view of the mountain peak within the crater. The shadows cast by the crater and mountain peak give a glimpse into just how massive this crater truly is. The last image is one of the clearest images of Mimas to date.

Now, more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature. If the next centennial does not find us a great nation…it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.

Congressman James Garfield of Ohio, remarks on the 100th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1876. 

Garfield’s comments can and should be applied to the White House, as well, and have never been more fitting. When you’re seeking the source to blame for the sorry state of our political culture, our broken system of government, and the “public servants” who make the decisions that impact our lives, remember that it is our fellow Americans who elected these people to represent us. Elections have consequences.  

Charlotte/21/Brighton I like eating junk food and wearing baggy clothing whilst sheltering myself away from the world and getting stuck into series, films and documentaries, I love going on fun adventures and finding places with pretty scenery. I’m also a lil bit weird and obsessed with conspiracy theories and outer space (hence the alien spaceship phone case) http://gjakut.tumblr.com

before i go to bed i have to post this

10 rezzes. in fucking expert mode, where i consider anything over 3 total deaths to be excessive UNLESS you have no healer. i had 2 triple rezzes, 2 doubles. ¾, easily gamesaves (the first one can slide, i suppose, because i’ve pulled off the ‘last man alive’ thing as hanzo like five times by now)

and you know who voted for me on the score screen?

myself. and myself only.

how any non-masochist mains mercy is beyond me

so I’m going through the atomic blonde tag and I literally just saw a post saying that the movie is sexist because charlize theron looks “too thin” in the trailer, and because it’s “unrealistic” for a woman to be able to beat up men who are significantly larger than her, especially in heels??? 

like??? buddy. pal. my guy.  

this is a female-lead film in an almost entirely male-dominated genre (seriously, when was the last time you saw an action movie where the main character was a.) female, and b.) not someone’s wife/girlfriend?), directed by an established filmmaker (david leitch, best known for his work on john wick), starring an oscar-winning actress who is also producing it herself, featuring a romantic subplot between two women, with feminist themes in the trailers and promotional material, and you’re going to boycott it… because the main character (a secret agent who is required to keep high standards of physical fitness for her job) is too fit??? or because she’s too feminine??? (I mean, I can run and jump and climb in heels, and I’m definitely not a highly-trained spy.) if you genuinely believe that conventionally attractive/traditionally feminine women being portrayed as tough and badass is “unrealistic,” then it sounds like the only one being sexist here is you.

“That’s enough.”

And Molly Hooper- teeny, tiny, less than-a-stone-wet Molly Hooper- slides in between Detective Inspector Jason Braddock and her boyfriend. Pushes herself into the older man’s space, forcing him to back up.

Glowering, defiant, she crosses her arms and glares up at him, daring him to repeat what he just said. Daring him to call the man she loves- the man who just solved his crime for him- a freak once more.

Her expression promises unpleasant repercussions if he does.
