i know way too many STEM majors that only know THAT and by that i mean they seem to forego learning basic shit like this girl on my tl was talking about how her bf didnt know how to lace his shoes? but dude has like a 75k/yr job? she was like “i guess his mom did it for him” and i cant tell yall how many of those mfs just dont know how to TALK to people and i wont get into their dubious bathing habits but i guess for all you young asses out there, dont think being wild book smart gives you a pass on learning all the OTHER shit you should know
I know I’m reblogging a lot of shit about the net neutrality thing going on, but I’m not sorry in the least bit.
I’m fucking terrified.
The internet has helped me get through so much shit in my life. I can’t imagine what it would be like without it. This has brought me to tears many times already just thinking about it.
Guys, JACK AND MARK have helped me through so much. Ethan too. If net neutrality is gone, I might not be able to watch them anymore. And you might not either. All because rich douchebags wanna make life harder for people like us. People who don’t have as much money as them and can’t afford that kind of shit.
And that scares me so fucking much.
I don’t have the links, but search it. So many other people on here do. Help keep our internet safe from this bullshit.
Can I just say that it seems he’s super aware of his capabilities on and off screen? I’m not sure if this makes sense but it’s apart of his charm and people can’t get enough of it. He’s got a big heart and cares about climate change, I’m beyond happy he’s getting the recognition he deserves and he uses his platform to talk about important topics.
It’s funny cause today I was thinking about this too. After seeing the soldier ezra picture I once again thought how awesome it is that he is literally the best looking thing in this planet (normally people look like shit in passport pics, but he? Looks? Better? Than? Usual even? Is that even possible? ) yet he isn’t being a jerk or anything, Quite the opposite to be honest. He is a wonderful human being, and unlike many actors or musicians he isn’t a selfish prick who doesn’t respect his fans, he gives his fans so much love and that’s just very much to respect..
I see constantly men and women post more and more about having fuck buddies and shit and that’s cool I’m all for sexual liberation, however I’m also somewhat old fashioned too.
Yes I support the ability to discuss sex with each other and I’m all for the ability to engage in sex with partners of your choosing, providing the consent of course, however what I absolutely hate to see, and I see this a lot on Tumblr, is when people make it all they post.
Their whole personality, or lack of in some cases, is about sex. Who they want to fuck, who they’re fucking, how many they’ve fucked. Or about their own body, constantly talking about their own genitals or chest.
So much so that it’s all they’re about. This is where I am old fashioned, instead of going on and on about how much you just wanna bang someone, or constantly going about how your pussy has taking more of a pounding than tenderised meat. Be something, have in-depth conversations, pick up a hobby.
This could be an unpopular opinion but it’s my opinion on the matter.
people talking abt the juggalo shit aren’t woke enough to know about when the ICP were investigated for “gang activity” because they were mobilizing too many indigenous teenagers.. one of the dudes in the band is cherokee and they’ve been making what’s essentially violently antifa music this whole time………. like obviously they’re a weird band but just because something is weird or a lot of poor people like it doesn’t mean it’s a complete writeoff or a joke
This might come as a surprise but it’s ok to not like a ship, or even hate it viciously for no real reason. You don’t need to come up with reasons why it’s morally inferior to what you like, or call anyone who likes it a criminal or anything like it. Not everything you hate is “evil”, sometimes you just plain don’t like a thing and that’s ok

yeah there is absolutelyno reason anyone should be a climate change denier at this point. there have been way too many signs within the past 2-3 weeks for anyone to be in denial. over 1,000 people have died worldwide due to hurricanes, floods, and now recently a major earthquake. none of this shit should be normal and the problem isn’t going to be fixed if people keep being oblivious towards it
How do people say these things so matter-of-factly and not realize how perversethese statements are? They are fetishizing an entire population of people based on very limited and very skewed representations of what they’ve seen in mainstream Korean media.
South Korea isn’t all about K-Pop and K-Dramas. It’s not all cute and fun. It’s a nation of people struggling to get by because the vast majority are overworked and underpaid. It’s a nation of people trying their absolute hardest to find happiness and solidarity and peace of mind because the government has been horrendously failing its people. When people make dumbass comments about how badly they want to date/marry a Korean person just because they’ve listened to some catchy songs and watched some entertaining dramas, please realize that they are dehumanizing an entire nation of people.
Including their favorite idols, despite the fact that the media likes to portray things differently.
Note: Listening to K-pop, watching K-Dramas, etc. doesn’t make you a bad person. But something is to be said about someone who obsesses so intensely over one aspect of a people’s culture but they can’t be bothered to even look into other, not-so-positive aspects of that same culture. How much can you truly say you love a culture when you can’t even be bothered to, at the very least, research struggles the people face?
Top 10 Tricks to Making Shitty, Hack Pop Songs that Fucking Everyone Will Love
10. Have a talented producer create a decent instrumental– and completely ignore the tone of the instrumental during the lyric writing process.
9. Hire way too many songwriters to write lyrics that an eighth grade honors student could write!
8. March to the beat of EVERYONE’S drum– The words in your music should feel specific, but in reality, will be very broadly applicable. Be sure to omit any lines that have too much of your identity in them!
7. Hire a personal trainer, and a stylist! Less people will care about you if you’re some kind of fuckin sack o’ shit uggo!!
6. (OPTIONAL) If you’re performing, or at a red carpet event: dress like a fucking alien.
5. Start a public feud with other hack artists– this encourages people to root for you, and gets people talking (this benefits you and your fellow hack artists)!
4. You LOVE the gays– publicly (it’s okay if you privately don’t, but you really want their support– they’re a vocal community)!
3. Drink the blood of a virgin– it will imbue you with an overwhelming aura of innocence that will make the easily influenced feel protective of you and your shitty, shitty music.
2. Occasionally shatter this innocent image with provocative lyrics, or just good old fashioned nudity! This will make people feel like either (A.) you’re blossoming into an independent adult, or (B.) they want to have the sex.
1. Have FUN! You’re a sociopath! Enjoy taking advantage of millions and millions of people who are less fortunate than you :)
DISCLAIMER: This is satirical; I pretty obviously don’t ACTUALLY endorse any of the things mentioned above. I wrote this because I was frustrated with the current titans in the music industry, and the current state of the music industry itself. This was my method of voicing said frustration.
I also understand that my points probably weren’t groundbreaking in anyway, but what are you gonna do?
[All of this happened because I wanted to write something about Stiles not being able to sleep without his pillow. Spoiler alert: his pillow is Derek.]
Derek tries not to look too hurt when Stiles says he’s going back to Washington, but when the Sheriff claps his back and Scott offers him a friendly hug, he knows he failed. But after everything, after the other night - it just doesn’t feel fair.
“It was a nice road trip, wasn’t it?” Stiles had said after they’ve won, after everything was done, their friends were alive and fine and Derek finally got his loft back. “I mean, we had some fun, right?”
Derek smiled without looking away from the flowers the Sheriff got him as a housewarming gift. “Yeah.” He answered, finally turning around. “It was nice to spend time with you.” It was more than nice and he cursed himself for not being able to say it, still, after everything, after the nights spent driving and talking and fucking in deserted roads.
“Yeah.” Stiles agreed easily. He was the one who started it after all, always showing up to save Derek - despite Derek saving him back plenty of times - always being there, trusting him, smiling and laughing like Derek makes him happy. “What will you do now that you’re a free man again?”
Derek shrugged. “I always wanted to start a farm, maybe raise some sheep?” When Stiles blinked at him, surprised, Derek let out a snort.
“Fuck you, I almost believed it!” Stiles said, punching his shoulder.
“You’re ridiculous.” Derek shook his head, still smiling.
“You’re ridiculous.” Stiles stressed, his hand still on Derek’s shoulder, touching, teasing. “I’m -“ Derek didn’t let him finish then, turning around and just pressing their lips together.
He didn’t want to listen then - and in hindsight maybe he should’ve - but without the haste, the guilt of having a nice time whilst their friends could be dying, Derek couldn’t wait, he just wanted to worship Stiles’ body, just wanted to kiss all the places he couldn’t reach before when they were squeezed in the backseat of Stiles’ car.
And so he did, he made Stiles moan his name the entire night and he moaned Stiles’ own just as louder. Just to have his heart crushed the morning after.
“I’m gonna miss you.” Stiles says, his Jeep packed and ready to go. To leave everything behind.
It’s unfair, Derek knows. Stiles didn’t make promises and neither did he, but he can’t help how he feels. He understands Stiles doesn’t want to be in Beacon Hills anymore and that’s his choice, but Derek made his own and he’s tired of running away.
He’s never felt closer to his family than when he’s here, he’s already lost enough and he doesn’t want to lose his home. But somehow, as Stiles drives away, he feels like he just did.
I miss you, Derek thinks every day, staring at the black screen of his phone and wondering if he should actually write those words and send them to Stiles. He decides against it and despite the fact he was joking before, on the third day after Stiles left, Derek buys a farm.
He tells Lydia first during lunch at her favorite restaurant - she was adamant they had to become best friends and Derek enjoys her company so he lets it happen easily - and she tells him he’s not allowed to wear plaid around her. Then he tells Scott and two days later, he shows up at Derek’s front door with all kinds of seeds - “We need pumpkins for Halloween, Derek. Make it happen!”.
It’s something to do with his hands, something to work on. Create life, instead of ending them, build things, instead of destroying. He feels good, better and healing. Cora says he’s calmer now and Derek smiles, despite knowing she won’t be able to see him, and tells her he is.
Some days Stiles texts him, others he doesn’t. Derek reads the ones he has every night before going to bed, but he never answers them.
Okay okay this story is too good, I’ve gotta tell it myself.
This? Is Grigori Rasputin.
He was born a peasant in Imperial Russia in 1869. We really don’t know much about his early life or his parents, because no one gave a shit about peasants in Siberia in 1869.
We do know that in 1886 he met and married a fellow peasant, a girl named Praskovya Dubrovina. They settled in Pokrovskoye. They had seven children, three of whom survived to adulthood. She remained devoted to him throughout his later deeds, infamy, and death.
This is where shit starts getting wild.
Sometime in 1897, Rasputin started getting seriously into religion, and left Pokrovskoye to go on pilgrimage. Why? We don’t really know. Some people claim he had a vision. Some claim he met a scholar and was impressed by their knowledge. Anyway, he traveled to the St. Nicholas Monastery at Verkhoturyem, where he remained for months, studying with an elder by the name of Makary. It is likely he learned to read and write here.
He eventually left the monastery, complaining that life there was too ‘coercive’ and that many of the monks engaged in 'homosexual acts’, which TBH good on you, monks.
If you were wondering “So, what does one do after you leave a monastery after months of study, and have a young wife and some kids at home?”
If you answered “Denounce booze, become a vegetarian, grow some wild hair and become a wandering pilgrim, singing and praying fervently as you go” then congrats! You’re thinking like Rasputin!
Somehow, doing this attracted him a group of disciples. They got up to some pretty wild shit, and there have been rumors that they joined a sect known as the khlysty, who engaged in self flagellation and also sexual orgies.
It should be mentioned here that he was, apparently, hung like a fucking horse and his penis, severed post mortem, is now pickled in a jar.
Anyway, moving on.
Word of this weird holy man spread, and he gained a reputation as someone who could heal people of maladies and hysteria, possibly by having sex with every woman he could. He SOMEHOW managed to wrangle a letter of recommendation to a monastery in St. Petersburg, and upon arriving somehow impressed people so much that he was eventually introduced to Tsar Nicholas II.
It’s noted that he had great charisma and was very compelling. He also wasn’t stupid, and immediately buttered up to the royal family as much as possible.
Much of his influence over the royal family was due to the fact that he was the only one who could seem to successfully treat their son, Alexei. Alexei was hemophiliac, and suffered considerably. He was the only son, and the fate of the dynasty hung on him, and of course then he was fretted over.
Rasputin did seem to honestly be able to ease Alexei’s suffering and several times managed to save him when the court doctors had given the boy up for dead. How? We’ve got no idea. Magic, probably.
The problems here came because Rasputin’s dick was well known in St. Petersburg, and rumors began to fly that he was serving that sausage up to the Empress. She did keep him close and write uncommonly intimate and familiar letters to him, but we don’t honestly know for sure if the rumors were true.
Anyway. The late days of the Romanov dynasty were a hot mess of political, religious, and social turmoil anyway, and Rasputin was basically a match to tinder. He had too much influence, he was too strange.
The first assassination attempt came when a peasant woman attempted to stab him to death. He was injured, but recovered, and was unnerved by the attack. He began to drink again.
The assassination attempt (and attempt, and attempt, and attempt) that would go down in legend came when a group of nobles led by Prince Felix Yusupov decided at last that Rasputin had too much influence for a peasant and must be removed.
Rasputin had a sweet tooth. So, his assassins laced a tray of cakes with enough cyanide to kill an elephant, and dumped another few doses into the wine to be sure. Then they lured him to Yusupov’s home with the promise that he could have sex with Yusupov’s wife and left the cakes and wine on the table. Rasputin tucked in, eating enough poison to kill ten men.
And it didn’t do a goddamned thing.
Finally, in desperation, they shot him in the chest. Figuring that did it, they dressed one guy up in Rasputin’s hat and coat and drove him back to Rasputin’s place to make it look like Rasputin had left.
When they got back, though, Rasputin jumped up and attacked Yusupov, who fought him off. Chased by a man who should be twice dead, Yusupov fled into the courtyard. There Rasputin was shot a second time, and stopped. A third shot, and he collapsed. He was still trying to crawl, though, and they beat and kicked at him for a bit, wrapped him in a carpet and dumped him into the Nevka river.
The news of the murder got out almost immediately. When they finally fished the body out of the river and performed an autopsy, it was discovered that the cause of death had been drowning.
The poison hadn’t done it. Three bullets hadn’t done it. The beating hadn’t done it. The river finally had.
And that is why jokes about anesthetizing Rasputin by smashing him in the face are hilarious.
