is john green awesome

Can we go back to romanticizing john green books? Like he is actually the chillest dude and other than being pretentious he hasnt done any bad shit.
Like him and his brother spend so much of their time actively trying to make the world a better place and we take this dude and make him the worst person online like seriously wtf?
He has spoken up about dozens of issues including environmental issues, world health, the treatment of women and he and his brother have a charity that many times a year they actively spend time and effort to raise awareness to our hundreds of issues as a planet.
Like fuck man he is a real good dude and all you need to do to see that is google his name and watch a few videos but u judge people off memes you read on the internet instead of making your own opinion

Dear John Green

Okay I know he’s on tumblr and I am doing this on whim, breaking my anxiety to TRY and get this to him because I just feel like I should do this. I just want to say this;

I’ve read TFIOS and you made me cry. I watch the movie and after both of that, I was storming through my home going, “THIS CANT BE HAPPENING! He can’t die!” I must thank you for writing such a wonderful but heartbreaking book. It was realistic at how even bad things will ruin the most best of things. But even then Good will find a way back.

You made me cry but you also made me laugh and cringe at the best things.

You’ve inspired me and you’ve probably inspired several others to write.

Thank you for writing the book and being you!

Stay Awesome. ^u^

My biggest role models and one of their quotations.
  • Demi Lovato: Never be ashamed of what you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion that you want, and to do what makes you happy. That's my life motto.
  • John Green: The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.
  • Malala Yousafzai: When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.
  • Hank Green: Don’t worry about looking cool. Do you, because you are fantastic.
  • J. K. Rowling: It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.
  • Robin Williams: No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.
  • Albert Einstein: The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.
  • Kesha: Be yourself. Unapologetically.
  • Bill Gates: We make the future sustainable when we invest in the poor, not when we insist on their suffering.

So the Ark is made up of 12 nations right?

Surely those languages weren’t completely erased even though everyone seems to use English? I want bilingual/polyglot delinquents please, who were taught the most common language spoken their station before Unity. And there are a few other surviving languages not from the main nations, not as widely spoken but still passed down anyway.

Imagine it though…

Clarke, Wells and Miller all speaking French (maybe Miller pretending he doesn’t know French because he doesn’t want people to know he’s privileged- until he shouts “Allez vous ne pouvez pas sauver tout le monde” at her in the heat of the moment because the Miller’s primarily spoke French in their home so it’s his base language, the language he thinks in and fuck he has no time to translate any of that shit he needs to get Clarke into the dropship)

Raven muttering in Portuguese, and thinking back to when Finn would laugh and reply to her in the same, and her and Wick sitting Monty down- back before the world turned to shit- telling him if he’s going to be Mecha now he needs to know the native lingo

Jasper and Monty flicking between English and Russian without realising it, until Fox is like ‘guys I am the only one here who’s following this, remember the non-Agro’s jeez’

Bellamy teaching Octavia Filipino growing up just like his dad did him but struggling because it’s a rare language and he hasn’t met another speaker since his father died (and panicking because he doesn’t want to forget it but the memories are fading…)

Harper insulting people in Welsh because it’s one of the rare languages and literally no one seems to know it even inside her UK originating station

Murphy making sarcastic comments Hindi or Japanese, smirking when Jaha- and the other two men tagging along- has no idea what he’s saying (jokes on Jaha because Murphy knows French too, Jaha has no more secrets… Murphy might be dyslexic but he soaks up languages like a dry sponge to water #polyglotmurphy2k15)

(Same with Mt.Weather, Maya and Miller surprising each other by having French as a mutual mother language…)

I’ve seen a bunch of posts on tumblr recently criticizing Taylor Swift (or her reps) for taking down fan-created crafts or artwork that uses trademarks related to Ms. Swift.

The problem they face is that, as explained in this video, you cannot selectively enforce trademarks. So if you don’t tell fans they can’t make fan art, then Urban Outfitters can come along and say, “Your trademark isn’t real because you didn’t enforce it with this or that product for sale on etsy, even though you knew about it or could have easily discovered it, so we don’t have to pay you for all these Taylor Swift shirts we are selling.”

This is why we have chosen not to trademark “DFTBA” or “Don’t Forget To Be Awesome.” We aren’t going to tell nerdfighters they can’t make DFTBA stuff and sell it, and so we can’t tell Urban Outfitters they can’t make DFTBA stuff and sell it. 

But that’s much harder to do when you’re Taylor Swift and there are a bajillion corporations trying to cash in on phrases and images related to you.

Trademark law is really stupid and annoying, and unless you create a series of complicated hurdles offering some people free licenses, it’s almost impossible to restrict certain people from using your trademark without restricting everyone from using it.
