“Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck FUCK fuck fuck FUCK goddamn it I look like SHIT fuck fuck FUCK”
-Me trying and failing to blend my neck
September 22 2020 - A Hillsboro man convicted to 6 months for drug possession managed to make his escape from the courthouse. A cop trying to stop him gave himself broken ribs and a concussion and had to be taken to hospital, while the hero of our story managed a clean getaway and is still on the loose. [video]
I’ve watched this over and over again and I laugh every time
I’m still trying to figure out what he was hoping to achieve by diving headfirst over the banister like that.
Bold of you to assume cops have any thought process other than “im a cool action hero”
Rolling down the stairs like a fucking slab of ham lmao
I’ll never get over how fucking ridiculous the post-hunger games dystopian YA trend was. Every book was “society is sorted into *rolls dice* 5 groups based on *picks card* astrology signs. It is illegal to *throws dart at wall* sing. The main character is special because she *spins wheel* knows how to read. Two boys are in love with her.”
once a girl reported me to an administrator at school bc i was breaking dresscode and she didnt like me. so i pushed her down the stairs. i just kept walking and i dont think she saw me and i never got caught. i know she got very seriously injured and they had to call an ambulance and she transferred schools bc she knew SOMEONE pushed her and she didnt feel safe. ive never regretted it. its been years since i graduated and im on mood stabilizers now, but sometimes when someone is testing my patience i calm myself down by thinking about how good it felt to snap once and how i cant do that again bc i would go to prison probably
I had a little more fun with my haircut this time
man the britney spears testimony is chilling. she can’t drive, cant choose her therapist or any person around her, is forced to perform and train or she’ll be put on meds and restrained at home, cant see her kids or even have a new child, was forced to get an IUD which she can’t have taken out, can’t even choose her own food and bedtime. it’s very much institutionalisation except she still has to perform to make money for her family (the same that claim she shouldn’t have autonomy over her own life) and can’t even change a single dance move in her choreography. it’s just. christ.
see what i mean by parents feeling ownership over their children. her parents were allowed to suspend her autonomy as an adult too.
and like. she’s a rich cis white woman (though tbh she can barely touch the money she makes for her abusers)! and her disability and status is still enough to completely suspend her autonomy in the most abusive way, to even deny her the ability to have kids or refuse food. this is an absolute nightmare. imagine what it’s like for institutionalised working class folks too. poor folk, people of color, trans people who also had their autonomy suspended that way and are institutionalised or under conservationship. im really glad she got this opportunity to speak, no matter how short it was. but christ is it heartbreaking.
what do you think what will happen if I go into my hair appt in a few min with a new person and just ask that it is s gay as possible….
Whenever I read LotR and reach the battle between Eowyn and the Witch-king, I get the impression that the reason why the prophecy loophole works isn’t that the Witch-king is unkillable except for some illogical weakness nobody had thought about yet for misogynistic reasons, but that the Witch-king himself derives so much of his power from the fear he instills in others and from his own belief that he is unkillable. Eowyn doesn’t fear him, because she doesn’t fear death. When she twists his words right back at him, she’s not trying to exploit a prophecy loophole, she’s just making a play on the double meaning of the word «man» with fairly standard battlefield bravado.
But, crucially, it gets the Witch-king wondering if there might be an actual loophole in the prophecy. He starts doubting his own invincibility. There’s no logical reason why a woman might be able to kill him if a man cannot, but prophecies are tricky things. What if …
And this is what undoes him, in the end. This last minute doubt. The Witch-king, deep down, believes that Eowyn can kill him, thus making it possible for her to do so.
The elves care about the prophecy. The Witch-king cares about the prophecy. All the old, powerful beings of Middle Earth play by the rules of prophecy and live by the logic of Norse Sagas and Germanic legends.
Eowyn marches up to the Witch-king like Jared (19), goes “that sign won’t stop me because I can’t read”, and because the storybook logic, the fairytale logic, of the prophecy allows for her kill him, the Witch-king as a creature of stories and nightmares has to play by his own rules and die by her sword.
As people have pointed out before, the phrasing of Glorfindel’s words about the Witch-king allow for quite a number of the inhabitants of Middle Earth to kill him, if we’re only looking for possible loopholes in the prophecy.not by the hand of man shall he fall
According to this, the Witch-king could technically be killed by elves, dwarves, ents, hobbits, orcs or maiar. Why doesn’t Legolas kill the Witch-king? Why doesn’t Gandalf?
As mentioned, elves are very aware of the story logic that governs Middle Earth. They see their own place in the narrative, they know which foes are beyond them. Gandalf, too, knows that he cannot be the one to kill the Witch-king, and the Witch-king knows that Gandalf cannot kill him. Through their combined beliefs, the outcome of their fight is predetermined.
Eowyn doesn’t know what she can or cannot do according to story logic. The Witch-king has killed her Theoden. She sees no reason why she shouldn’t avenge him. And when she hears the Witch-king tell her that no man can kill him, she simply decides that that rule doesn’t apply to her.
Eowyn isn’t the only person who could have been the exception to the rule, but she is the first person who decides to genuinely, honestly believe that she is the exception to the rule, and this is why she ultimately kills the Witch-king.
What year is it??
ETA apparently she posted this less than an hour ago and also it’s her first tiktok
[video description: Avril Lavigne squatting on her knees in a yard by the ocean. she is lip-syncing to her song “Sk8er Boi”. When it gets to the line “He was a skater boy,” the camera closes in on her, and widens out to show Tony Hawk in the same setting, now with a halfpipe ramp as the song is still playing. He smiles and skates down the ramp on his skateboard. He then does a couple tricks, before getting off, flipping the skateboard in his hands, and walking away. end of video description.]
