Apparently IHs should be mad, upset, frustrated because of the Bleach Volume 74 cover. Because apparently it’s two characters giving each other “bedroom eyes” and we should be hella jealous.

Uh, no? I actually love the cover? The fact these two, opposite genders, are still amazing friends, after all those years and that’s special. I love it.

The only reason I didn’t wanted Kubo to draw them together was that I didn’t wanted to deal with their bullshit all over again. Seeing them go crazy over them just being together? Yeah and when things finally seemed to calm down a bit.

But still, I love it.

Also, it’s hilarious how the I//R are thinking we’re crying over that cover. Only like, very small amount are very upset. (I think) We have canon babies, so
Trump on porn actress who accused him of misconduct: 'Oh, I'm sure she's never been grabbed before'
Donald Trump on Monday addressed the latest accusations of inappropriate sexual contact made against him, saying of the accuser, an adult film performer, "Oh, I'm sure she's never been grabbed before."
By Andrew Kaczynski, CNN

Soon, gender studies classes across the world will teach students about rape culture and how it thrives using Donald Trump as a case study.

I fell in love with his brown eyes,
in fact, I may love them too much,
for they make me see past all his lies.
I know he’s leaving me in the dark,
but if I leave him,
it will cause so much damage to my heart.
If only I could see him every day,
maybe then I would know
if he really wanted me to stay.
Maybe then I would know why my heart is frayed.
I am lost and I don’t know what to do,
but the one thing I know
is that I want to be here,
& here with you.

The Airborne Toxic Event - America

“We have a new song. Nothing will be for sale. This is for you. Vote.” -TATE


in America you’re born with a silver spoon or in the back of the bus by the light of the moon and when you die they say “it’ll all be changing soon
and you’ll be free, you’ll be free, you’ll be free.”

it was 200 years of war that lit that freedom torch. went from southhampton fields up to the white house porch and they’re still shooting all the kids for trying to break that yoke, how can you breathe? how can you breathe? how can you breathe?

they gave a fortune away to some wall street bank like a treasure was sunk on a ship already sank and they’re still standing on the deck trying to get us to walk the plank, while they’re lost at sea, lost at sea, lost at sea.

but i never had more than ten dollars to my name and i’ve been told my whole life “boy you got to hide your shame”
for being born like a match set afire by the flame,
but i will burn free, i will burn free, I will burn free.

when i look all around, i wonder where they’ve gone. all the people that I loved reduced to memories in a song
i can hear them trying to remind me just remember right from wrong,
because we fought for thee, we fought for thee, we fought for thee.

but i see hatred in the eyes of all these people running scared, like the world’s been taken by someone who finally dared,
to just stand up and say we’re staying, we’re not going anywhere
and we will be free, we will be free, we will be free.

in America you’re born with a silver spoon or in the back of the bus by the light of the moon and when you die they say, “it’ll all be changing soon
and you’ll be free, you’ll be free, you’ll be free.”

so i wonder which was the lie, the past in it’s glory or the promise of a future you and i may never see, ‘cause the reasons i been given sound like bullshit to me, we’ll wait and see, wait and see, wait and see.

now America i know i’m not your favorite son but i did my time and i’m not hurting anyone i’m just tired of living at the point of a gun,
when will you see, when will you see, when will you see?

when you say we’re “free”
you don’t mean me. you don’t mean me.

Inspiration from the ocean: Non-toxic, high-quality surface treatment for organic field-effect transistors

In a development beneficial for both industry and environment, UC Santa Barbara researchers have created a high-quality coating for organic electronics that promises to decrease processing time as well as energy requirements.

“It’s faster, and it’s nontoxic,” said Kollbe Ahn, a research faculty member at UCSB’s Marine Science Institute and corresponding author of a paper published in Nano Letters.

In the manufacture of polymer (also known as “organic”) electronics – the technology behind flexible displays and solar cells – the material used to direct and move current is of supreme importance. Since defects reduce efficiency and functionality, special attention must be paid to quality, even down to the molecular level.

Often that can mean long processing times, or relatively inefficient processes. It can also mean the use of toxic substances. Alternatively, manufacturers can choose to speed up the process, which could cost energy or quality.

well, I,

So many straight guys are so horrified by the remotest possibility of someone they’re not attracted to being attracted to them.

Like given the smallest suspicion of a one-way crush they’ll be truly awful to women they consider unattractive or men who like men, even if the person in question doesn’t even come close to flirting with them.

But then they turn around and fucking harass women who don’t return their attraction - with zero self-awareness. It’s truly mind-boggling to see the same guy say some cruel shit to repel the ‘advances’ of a gay man or a fat girl who barely glanced in his direction and like thirty seconds later be pushing his luck with some girl who’s already said three times she’s not interested.

That’s fucked up.

Avoid people who mess with your head. Avoid people who intentionally and repeatedly do and say things that they know upset you. Avoid people who expect you to prioritize them but refuse to prioritize you. Avoid people who can’t and won’t apologize sincerely. Avoid. Avoid.

Just because someone used to be an important part of your life doesn’t mean you have to continue to cling to the friendship when it begins to die. Your relationship was once something beautiful and fulfilling, and that’s a wonderful thing. But at a certain point, no amount of watering and nurturing will bring it back to full bloom. The fact that its deteriorated doesn’t mean you’re incapable of sustaining meaningful friendships. It doesn’t mean you’re not worth the time and effort it takes to maintain a connection. And it isn’t any sort of evidence that you’re a burden or a bad friend. It just means that the relationship has run its course. It means that you’ve evolved into different people or moved apart or just lost each other in the clutter and preoccupation of life’s everyday demands. But it isn’t a reflection on your value as a person and friend.

It’s okay to mourn the loss of a relationship that used to have a special place in your heart. But if keeping yourself tethered to this person is causing more damage than healthy detachment and ongoing growth, it’s also okay to stop watering the friendship and let it die out. You don’t have to sacrifice your wellbeing for the sake of maintaining a relationship that doesn’t serve you anymore. You’re allowed to be picky when it comes to the people you let into your mental and physical space. You’re allowed to conserve your time and energy only for people who reciprocate. Because you deserve to feel seen and heard and cared for. You deserve relationships that make you feel fulfilled and connected. And no matter how long of a history you have with a person, you deserve to let go of any friendship that hurts you and forces you to prove your worth.
