Thoughts before falling asleep
  • other people: does he love me? I didn't study for maths. I don't know what to do with my life. Will he ever text me back?
  • me: does Obama listen to Joy Division? Does Robert Smith really have sex with Simon Gallup? What is the best Sisters Of Mercy album? How does Siouxsie do her hair?

anonymous asked:

Do you think sandy hook was a conspiracy? Why or why not?

I personally think it’s pretty clear that it wasn’t. People that think it was a hoax are absolutely delusional, and disrespectful. For example, in May of this year a Sandy Hook “truther” defaced a memorial of one of the victims and told her mother that her daughter never existed…

Everything that supposedly shows that it was a “hoax” can be explained:

1. If Emilie Parker was killed in Sandy Hook then why is she pictured with Obama? - That’s her little sister wearing her dress. 

2. Why were certain memorial pages were set up before the shooting? - That’s a common glitch with google searches. The results are often imprecise.http://twitpic.com/bw0x6q here’s one on Sandy Hook from 1983…

3. Who is the man running from the woods with police chasing him? -  That was a father of a student in the school. He heard the gunshots and ran.

4. People reported seeing multiple shooters - In the chaos of a situation like a mass shooting, misinformation and confusion are rife. People tend to forget what they actually saw, and that’s why eyewitness testimony is referred to as “notoriously unreliable”.

5. Why are there no ambulances on the scene?  - There was: http://www.politico.com/story/2012/12/connecticut-school-shooting-official-says-gunman-killed-85094.html

6. Why is the woman acting as James Holmes attorney acting as a parent of a student? - http://imgur.com/r/conspiracy/5sdWN she isn’t. If you look at a better quality image you can clearly see they are two different people: http://i.imgur.com/f4AC8.jpg

7. Why was Adam Lanza’s rifle still in his car if that is what he used to kill his victims with? -  The gun being removed from Lanza’s car was a shotgun that he didn’t use. The guns he took with him were found inside the school.

Conspiracy theories appear to be a way of reacting to uncertainty and powerlessness. People don’t like to feel as though something as catastrophic as this can happen without something as powerful as the government being behind it.

  • me: It's gonna be a good day
  • parents: no
  • friends: no
  • siblings: no
  • Obama: no
  • Bill Cosby: no
  • Sherlock: no
  • tumblr: it'll still be a shit day but at least u can share your misery with the internet

I don’t have time to draw anything for 4/13 but i wanted to post some stuff anyways, so I scavenged through my sketchbook! here are a couple things from the past couple months. to celebrate still being homestuck trash.

This is Malia Obama giving her sister the thumbs up for talking to Ryan Reyolds. This is the exact face every girl makes when her sister talks to a cute boy. I’m gonna miss this whole family.

Their father is the first Black president of the United States. Talk about having big shoes to fill! But Sasha and Malia Obama have long since captured our hearts with their big smiles, quirky selfies and enviable wardrobes, so we’re finishing this week’s #HairBattleThursday: “Sister Duo” edition with the first daughters.

The Obama daughters are still quite young, so we’ve yet to see what beautiful and accomplished women they will undoubtedly become, but we can’t wait to watch them blossom. Growing up under such a microscope, especially as young women of color, is likely a tremendous challenge, but armed with brilliant parents like President Obama and Michelle, Sasha and Malia have excellent role models to guide them in the right direction. 

Hair-wise, these two cuties are usually following their mom’s lead and wearing perfectly pressed locks, but when they’re on the road or just having some family downtime, Sasha and Malia can be found with a two strand twist or a simple, frizzy ponytail. While we do love a good press, the natural hairstyles remind us why we ride for Sasha and Malia: because they remind us of our Black girl childhood (minus the dad as President part.)

Are Sasha and Malia Obama the best sister duo doing it today? Reblog/like this post if you think they are! 

If not, check out the other #HairBattleThursday sister duo contenders: Solange & Beyonce Knowles, Venus and Serena Williams, Phylicia Rashad and Debbie Allen and Tia and Tamera Mowry.
