took flight

Relationships are like flights and people are like airplanes and sometimes it’s so smooth and there’s a great movie on and sometimes there’s turbulence and you have a middle seat and sometimes the plane malfunctions and decides no one’s making it out of this flight alive and that might not even actually be on purpose. But the point of this was that if relationships are like flights and people are like airplanes, you’re the tornado that came by and destroyed the entire airport before the flight even took off.

dude are u like rich or something cos damn plane tickets cost a lot of money

Nah. The reason I went on so many planes is because our original plane had an emergency landing (long story) and it took two flights to get back home.

Hollywood’s hottest couple is Spideypool but you’d only know it if you were paying VERY close attention at the Golden Globes

You may not have caught this — it happened fast — but a new romance took flight tonight. As the melodic chords of the La La Land soundtrack sounded a win for Ryan Gosling in the Best Actor, Comedy, category, fellow nominee and Canadian Ryan Reynolds was too busy to notice. The Deadpool actor was caught on video kissing Best Actor, Drama nominee Andrew Garfield.

Google doodle honors Bessie Coleman, the first black woman in the United States to earn a pilot’s license

  • When Bessie Coleman took flight in 1921 she didn’t just break the glass ceiling — she soared tens of thousands of feet above it.
  • At the time, Coleman was the first black woman in the United States to earn a pilot’s license. 
  • And as she ascended into the sky that day, all of the people who doubted her, who discriminated against her for her race and gender, would become smaller and smaller until they disappeared out of sight.
  • “The air is the only place free from prejudices,” Coleman once said.
  • On Thursday, Google commemorated Coleman’s 125th birthday with a doodle showing her plane doing loops and turns to spell the search engine’s name. Read more

Showing her the city…                                                                                                     Finally, this tournament it’s over. And yup, we won ! I can’t wait to go back to my real bed now. Thank you Chipmunk for taking a 14 hour flight to support me. I still can’t believe you did that for me. My Little Banana ! (She’s so short, Haha) 

K, I’m starving now…

recently added this cutie to my lair- and the notn apparel looks so pretty on him i’m so in love TwT

he needs a lore makeover, and a new name probably. (named zant rn) I think it’d be cool if he was a descendant of the stars or a celestial being, but i’ve already got so many magic dragons bumbling around idk if my clan can handle another one. 

The name Lucifer is a Latin word meaning “light-bearer” from lux, “light”, ferre, “to bear,”, a Roman term for the “Morning Star”. Lucifer was the translation of the Septuagint Greek heosphoros, - “dawn-bearer”; Greek phosphorus, “lightbearer” and the Hebrew Helel, meaning “Bright one”. In the Roman poet Ovid’s Metamorphoses, the mentioning of Lucifer comes in the concept of AURORA, the Goddess of Dawn in Roman mythology, “Aurora, watchful in the reddening dawn, threw wide her crimson doors and rose-filled halls; the Stars took flight, in marshaled order set by Lucifer, who left his station last.” – Ovid

Dogs on airplanes

I have taken a number of airplane trips over the past month or so, and I noticed, on each of the flights I took, that there were dogs on board — not in carriers, but sitting on the laps, or in the arms, of their owners. It struck me as odd, and now, thanks to an interesting and informative article by Karen Elliott and Rebecca Lightle in The Washington Post a few weeks ago, I have an idea about what’s going on.

They’re all, apparently, “service dogs” — though from the look of it, they didn’t appear to be performing (or capable of performing) any particular service, nor did their owners appear to be disabled in any way. As Elliott and Lightle explain, the Americans With Disabilities Act requires places of public accommodation such as restaurants and transportation carriers to allow service animals — which can be dogs or, oddly enough, “miniature horses” — that assist people with disabilities.

That seems fair enough (though the “miniature horses” part seems a little peculiar). The problem, though, is in determining whether any particular animal qualifies as a service animal — and in doing so without running afoul of the ADA’s restrictions on the questions concerning disabilities that the ADA also imposes.

To meet the ADA’s definition, a dog must be individually trained to perform specific tasks that directly relate to a person’s disability. For instance, a service dog may be trained to assist with navigation or alert its handler to safety concerns. However, if a dog provides aid only by its natural behavior, then it lacks the individualized training necessary for ADA accommodation. This standard means that the ADA does not apply to many dogs that function as therapy, emotional-support and companion animals.

So how should a business assess whether a customer’s dog is a service animal? Federal regulations instruct that if it is readily apparent that a dog is aiding a person with a disability — for example, by leading a person who is blind — then staff members should simply allow the dog in as a service animal. But if the dog’s function is not apparent, then the ADA permits only two types of inquiries. First: “Is this dog required because of a disability?” And second: “What specific assistive task or tasks has the dog been trained to perform?”

Not surprisingly, many people are gaming the regulations, claiming “service animal” status for Fido just as a way of getting around restrictions on dogs in restaurants, apartment buildings, etc.

And the situation for airplanes is even worse. The federal Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA) provides even broader protections for service animals.

Unlike places of public accommodation governed solely by the ADA, commercial airlines must accept ID cards, other documentation, apparel or “credible verbal assurances” as evidence that a service animal is legitimate (although an airline may prohibit “unusual” service animals such as reptiles, rodents or spiders). Further, if a passenger with a disability produces appropriate documentation from a licensed mental health professional, the ACAA requires airlines to accommodate emotional-support animals that would not be protected by the ADA.

Service animals accompanying commercial air travelers must be permitted in any seat space where their passenger-handlers are permitted to sit. But federal regulations also instruct airline staff to assess whether a service animal presents a direct threat to the health and safety of others or a significant threat of disruption to the airline service in the cabin. If a dispute arises with a passenger as to whether the animal should be permitted, staff are to refer the matter to the airline’s mandatory complaint resolution official (CRO). Commercial airlines must provide a written explanation to any passenger whose service animal has not been accommodated under these rules.

So just a “credible verbal assurance” books Fido a trip to San Francisco for the weekend. But he better not be sitting next to me. File under “regulatory overreach.”

So a friend mentioned this “Victor will have to leave because Makashin is dying” theory/thing going around and at first I was “meh” towards that, but then I considered all the possibilities it would open:

-Yuri and Victor constantly messaging/calling each other for support

-Yuri worrying that Victor won’t come back to his side afterwards, then coming to terms with the fact that he will

-Yuri feeling anxious about the competition because Victor isn’t by his side, but then realizing that doesn’t mean Victor isn’t supporting him

-Yuri deciding he’ll perform so well that it’ll entice Victor even through the television screen

-Yuri going to the “kiss and cry” feeling accomplished that he went well, yet depressed because Victor won’t be there…and then it turns out Victor took a special early flight to see him so he is there waiting for him, arms wide open.

-The realization that Yuri’s parents do not know how to take care of pooddle

I love that Neon is tall, because Starfrost is about the same height. That explains why Northern Lights is so big! XD
