I love gays who just watch the same movie over and over and over again because it’s comforting…you’re my people
“Wakanda will no longer watch from the shadows. We can not. We must not. We will work to be an example of how we, as brothers and sisters on this earth, should treat each other. Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another, as if we were one single tribe.”

Just so people know, I looked at the source and the sister was in a very bad car accident and these gifts are likely her way of dealing with her trauma.
honestly…. the fact that they didn’t include this in the original post fucking sucks.
but also… i know these gifts may seem “creepy,” but they’re all really practical (well, aside from the book) and show that she clearly cares about the safety of her loved ones.
This makes me wonder how people view trauma. You see a lot assholes online of shitting on “sjws” for being triggered and not having ~real~ PTSD, but things like this make me wonder if people simply have no idea how to recognize PTSD when it’s not people freaking out over a loud noise.
… “doesn’t … seem traumatized by it at all”
what. the. fuck. how does that not “seem traumatized”.
Her way of dealing with trauma is trying to prevent others’ trauma, and regardless, those are mostly useful gifts the average person doesn’t think of getting until it’s too late. High anxiety runs in my family so they gift the same kinda things. Idk how caring about someone is killing the mood.
Okay, I have to admit, using Disney’s own wifi to pirate Disney Plus shows is a stroke of absolute GENIUS
Oh no! What a terrible thing to do, this information should’t be spread by reblogging it, that’s for sure.
How I sleep knowing I’m pissing off all the Disney bootlickers by pirating:
How I sleep after pirating everything from D+ while using an antivirus, VPN or proxy, and a cantenna to rip off the free wifi at Downtown Disney. If you can’t get wifi directly from the house of mouse McDonald’s will do.
how i sleep when I’m pirating disney with a vpn and anti-virus protection.
how y’all gonna sleep after your computers are infected with a bazillion viruses and the feds gon’ bust your asses
how i sleep knowing i will pirate every single thing released on disney plus
This is a nice tweet.
In Judaism we have a saying that goes roughly “if you’re merciful towards the cruel, you end up being cruel to the merciful.”
A simple concept that mature adults understand, which is frequently obscured by the blinding twin suns of wealth and privilege.
remember when angelina jolie got a double mastectomy and Every Single Man on Earth acted like it was a personal attack on them specifically
Even though by the time it was announced she already had her breasts reconstructed and she was only going public about it to warn other women about risks?
I’ve been thinking about this a lot as several of my friends deal with breast cancer.
Sandra was on break from her nightshift at the Amazon delivery station in Sacramento, California, when she saw the text that her mother-in-law had been put on life support. With her manager’s permission, she left work early to go to the hospital. Her mother-in-law’s condition worsened the next day, and Sandra, who asked that only her first name be used, notified Amazon that she had to remain at the hospital. Her mother-in-law died the next day, and Sandra called the warehouse again to request bereavement leave, of which Amazon offers three days.
But Amazon grants workers limited time off, even without pay, and the time spent in the hospital had overdrawn Sandra’s balance by one hour before the bereavement leave set in. After she returned to work, her manager informed her that she was fired.
Though Amazon often touts the medical insurance and paid time off it gives its warehouse workers, those benefits only apply to full-time employees. Amazon also employs large numbers of permanent part-time workers, particularly in the company’s smaller, last-mile warehouses, such as the one in Sacramento, where goods are sorted before being sent out for delivery. Employees at the Sacramento delivery center say that all of the approximately 500 workers there are restricted to part-time work, and their hours are limited to fewer than the 30 per week that would obligate Amazon to offer them health care under the Affordable Care Act. They receive neither medical insurance nor paid time off.
While the workers were collecting signatures for the petition, they learned of another recent time-off firing. The employee, who asked to remain anonymous, says she was fired after taking three shifts off to make sure her children were safe during a domestic dispute. “Your engagement is critical in order for Amazon to be Earth’s most customer-centric company!” reads the email informing her she has a negative unpaid time off balance and has been fired.
Update October 4th, 3PM ET: After the petition was submitted, Sandra received a call from an Amazon representative informing her she had been rehired with back pay. “Sandra’s rehiring shows without a doubt that Amazon workers have power when we work together and stand up for our dignity and rights at work,” Amazonians United Sacramento posted in a Facebook message. Later, the second worker who had been fired for overdrawing her unpaid time off received an email saying she was rehired.
I don’t know who Mac is but I feel it in my very soul when Hozier says “as Mac explained, there will be darkness again”
“No Plan” is my favorite from the new album! He’s referring to Katie Mack… she’s a badass female astrophysicist. And she’s just as much a fan of his as he is of hers:

i learned that Binghamton University researchers have been working on a self-healing concrete that uses a specific type of fungi as a healing agent. When the fungus is mixed with concrete, it lies dormant until cracks appear, when spores germinate, grow and precipitate calcium carbonate to heal the cracks (x)
