Think Different | Military Motivation

Manatees sleep differently than humans. Instead of one long sleep cycle they take short naps under the waters surface, coming up to breathe every 5 minutes or so. Each manatee will have it’s own favorite way to sleep, and some, like this manatee, will even sleep on their backs.

Invictus |

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeoning of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Need some Monday motivation?

Whatever you do, don't scroll past this. I'm sorry if you cry, but it's totally worth it.

I’ve been scrolling through for literally the past three hours, and I’ve seen the most amazing things and I cried so much. I don’t even have words for these things that people post.

Like this… Dogs deserve to live forever.

Then there’s this Grandma

Then these shoutouts to the military

This guy

Good guys, Fall Out Boy, I have a bigger reason to love you guys.

And finally this giant with his kitten.

I hope this gives you guys a reason to stop doing some of the harmful things that you do because there’s always somebody who cares about you.

I love you guys. Please never give up.


“While most Americans are encouraged to spend and over consume during Memorial Day weekend, we will be honoring our brothers and sisters who have sacrificed their lives in our presence and in all previous wars. 

Marine Gunny Walgren’s version of John Glenn’s speech reminds everyone of the true meaning of this weekend.”

Uber A Motives Theory

The liars only know what A wants them to know when A wants them to know it. “That’s right, you got the book! Since when does the devil give out free samples?” - Toby, Shadow Play. 

A lead them to Mary Drake.

How does this not look planted? There was NOTHING ELSE THERE except loads of cobwebs that were perfectly placed around the perfectly planted file.

They think that Charlotte or Mary hid it there. I think that Uber A put it there and Sara’s only reason for staying at the Radley was to lure the liars so that they would find those pages. 

Why would Uber A choose to show them that Mary is Charles’ mother? 
The first thing Caleb says when Mona repeats that she’s Charlotte’s biological mom is, “She’s A.D.” Mary is a distraction/red herring.

Is it war between A.D and Uber A?
A.D just wants the killer, but Uber A is extremely territorial of the girl.
Uber A wouldn’t let anyone take the girls from them. 
Uber A doesn’t want the liars to get A.D. Uber A wants to get A.D. 
Uber A wants to be the hero.
By having them focus on Mary, Uber A can focus on A.D. and save their dolls.

Is the possible Spencer twin helping Uber A?
Did the possible Spencer Twin helped Hanna escape because she is Uber A, is dating Uber A, OR could it be that Uber A treat her like their doll, too?
Did she do it to get “papa’s” doll back? 
What if the motherly affection was her taking care her “sister?”

Is Wren their “Papa” who will also always stay with them? Would that make Wren Uber A? Or is there someone above him?

What is Uber A’s Motive?
What if this whole thing was Uber A creating their own family? These games are teaching the girls that every choice has a consequence and secrets destroy relationships/family.
The girls said it themselves that A brought them back together…. Maybe “papa” wanted to teach them what he believes true family is: Loyal with no secrets. This is why he brought all their personal and family secrets out in the light. “Papa” has never left them and knows all their secrets so they have nothing to hide from him. 

Why use Mona, Jenna, Lucas, Sara, Melissa etc?
Uber A chose their closest friends and worst enemies to be a part of the game to isolate the liars from the outside world. Uber A wanted to cause the liars to band together, learn from their mistakes, learn from the mistake of others, to believe that they only had each other so that when they meet their “papa” they will cling to him and become a real family. 

Why a doll house?
”Home Sweet Home.” Charlotte’s doll house was a test run and a social experiment. How much have the liars learned? How loyal are they to each other? Who do they think is the strongest? Who do they think is the weakest? Are they ready to be a family? Escaping may have been part of the plan to see how they would work together and how they would cope afterwards.

Why use Charlotte?
Uber A wanted to show what happens to people when they are rejected by family and society. To show that evil starts innocent. Uber A also wanted to show how someone can change with help from family and friends. Why kill Charlotte? Uber A needed a reason to keep them in Rosewood together. Charlotte was expendable. 

Why kill Charlotte like Spencer’s essay?
To identify with her intelligence and show that he’s been with her this whole time.

These are my current thoughts/theories! I hope I connected the dots well enough. Let me know what you think!
