Please reblog this if you know someone who has been eaten by Reavers and is now the hood ornament of a Reaver ship. About 85% of people will not reblog this because they have no idea what a Reaver is; about 10% will start speaking Chinese, or say something profound like, "I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will end you", and about 5% will start singing "The Hero of Canton".
A word that does not exist in the English language:
Ya’aburnee Arabic – Both morbid and beautiful at once, this incantatory word means “You bury me,” a declaration of one’s hope that they’ll die before another person because of how difficult it would be to live without them.
“It’s not that Chris Brown is categorically unforgivable. It’s more that he’s no longer an acceptable vehicle for corporations to use to sell products to young adults. On a human level, I’m more than willing to eventually forgive Chris Brown, once he seems genuinely remorseful and changed (which, at this point, he definitely does not). But there’s no obligation to continue supporting him as a pop star. Chris Brown would not exist without millions of dollars of production and marketing and styling and whatever else. He’s not some troubled genius that exists on his own, creating pop music in a corner. He’s just a handsome and fit guy who can dance and sing pretty well. There are plenty of other people who are more than capable of filling that role and who haven’t beat a woman into a state of unconsciousness. Why not give one of them a chance to be rich and famous instead?”—VICE on Cord’s Chris Brown post (via ceedling)
STEP #1: Mandate that all female employees have a right to free birth control through their employer’s insurance company (including females who work for religious organizations).
STEP #2: Sit back for two weeks as religious right-wing conservatives go nuts condemning birth control as evil. Even though 99% of sexually active women (a lot of whom can vote) use birth control.
STEP #3: Watch as the Republican candidates, including front-runner Mitt Romney, are provoked in to attacking the popular birth control rule as “an assault on religious freedom.”
STEP #4:Let the angry politicians go on all the major news networks to talk about your free birth control plan in front of millions of viewers, accidentally making you more popular and ensuring that you get all the credit for giving women greater access to contraception.
STEP #5: Save the tapes from steps 2, 3, and 4!! Those will make wonderful campaign ads a few months from now when you’re running against that party. “I expect to see some ads in the fall showing Romney saying hostile things about contraception and health care reform, with the message that free birth control is going away if he’s elected.”
STEP #6: Offer republicans a “compromise.” In which you exempt religious institutions from the law (as you were planning to all along) and, instead, require that the insurance company gives the free birth control directly to the female (instead of the company she works for). This does two things:
Increases the likelihood that women will get birth control (because the insurance company must reach out to them, decreasing the chance that women out there will be unaware of the free converge).
It’s a win win for Obama: Either the GOP accepts his “compromise” and agrees to expand birth control access to women (WIN!) or they continue to fight a losing battle in an election year (WIN!)…. Did I mention that female voters outnumber male voters at an average of 7 million per election?
Obama is very politically savvy. The right has continually underestimated him.
1) Obama is awesome 2) I honestly don’t care about the political games involved so long as women everywhere get access to safe and reliable birth control.
Sherlock:It's dimensionally transcendental. Obviously it's bigger on the inside. It's a Type 40 Time And Relative Dimensions In Space TARDIS. Approximately 900 years old. Its chameleon circuit became dysfunctional sometime in the 60's, which explains it's obsolete police phone box disguise, and you haven't gotten around to fixing it. The way you hold yourself and the goofy smile on your face signifies that you're clearly trying to cover up your dark past, and considering the fact that you have two hearts, which is made obvious by the double pulse coming through your carotid, you're a time lord. The last of the time lords. Am I wrong?
