Beautiful, Life, and School: flowersinbonecages: 19 delete edit You're pathetic. Please kill yourself Anonymous The other day I was very seriously contemplating suicide. Had I received a message like this then, I legitimately believe I would have attempted to take my own life. Unfortunately for you, two days ago a littie boy saved me. I didn't even know him -yet as we passed each other he said I was beautiful and deserved to live. Just like that. As tumbir becomes more populated, the amount of times I see hate on my dash is becoming more frequent. Often after my initial fury at seeing the cruel message dies down, I wonder what it is in the anonymous' life that has made them so bitter, heartless and cold, that they feel compelled to tell someone that they are not beautiful or are undeserving of life. I have failed to think of anything. I can find no reasons for such inhumanity. 3 weeks ago, a 13 year old girl from my town committed suicide because she was being bullied. The amount of people it affected is astounding. Her father is going to walk her down the aisle in a coffin as oppose to a beautiful white wedding dress. He's probably going to cry himself to sleep tonight like he has done since she she died. He still remembers holding her the day she was born and promising to protect her no matter what. Her mum is never going to teach her how to put her new born baby to sleep. She is never going to have a first kiss. Have sex. Travel the world. Feel the rush of relief when she finishes her final exam. Turn eighteen. Have a baby. Feel anxious when her child goes to school for the first time. Someone murdered her with their words. Someone like you. I'm naive to think you will never send hate again, but please learn two things from my response. 1. t takes a few kind words to save someones life. 2. It takes a few cruel words to take someones life. VIA THEMETAPICTURE.COM epicjohndoe: Such A Beautiful Thought

Ass, Bitch, and Crazy: One time I was playing the sims and I wanted to make me and mike but l wanted to make us separately and have us meet. But when I moved into my house, I had this sexy ass neighbor. I figured I could have a fling with him and break it off and get with Mike later but then the neighbors kid got attached to me and I couldn't just end it when I was so close to his daughter. I really cared about him too. So the only thing I could do was have it end in tragedy. That way I wouldn't have to break up with the guy and I could adopt his daughter to stay close to her. He passed away peacefully on fire in the kitchen. Now in previous games, when a kid is taken away by CPS, the next kid you adopt is the same kid. Welp that didn't carry over into sims 4 so the daughter ended up being taken away and erased from the game by the great sims deity. l'm a sentimental man, so l kept neighbor mans tombstone around. I'd occasionally chat with his ghost, but he seemed cold to me. I can't help but thinking he was a bit mad his daughter no longer existed. But this escalated once I started seeing Mike. His ethereal visits became more frequent and more hostile, usually breaking my electronics or creating a mess. But he went overboard when he started the fire. Being a sim the died in a fire, his ghost had certain abilities specific to his death (setting fires). He got pissed because I kissed Mike so he set my couch on fire that ended up barricading us in the bedroom. Now l couldn't find the fire alarm in buy mode and I hadn't had the foresight to predict my spiteful ghost died-in a-fire ex boyfriend would be an afterlife arsonist to care about it that much so a lot of the house had burned by the time l could get the FD there. After having almost nothing covered by insurance (thanks Obama), Mike sat me down to have a talk with me. While l couldn't understand him, l imagine he said What the fuck you need to deal with your crazy ass ex boyfriend ghost. This never would have happened if you weren't a thirst little sim bitch and dated me first." I approached the grave. It was time to release him. He was waiting for me. He knew this was the end.

Apparently, College, and Complex: r/AskReddit What perfectly true story of yours sounds like an outrageous lie? RamsesThePigeon 13d, 17h Just up the street from my apartment in San Francisco, there was one of those fast food restaurants that was either a KFC or a Taco Bell, depending on the angle from which it was viewed. The establishment was a frequent stopping point for students coming from the nearby college... and those students were a frequent target for a remarkably bright crow Now, on most days, the bird in question would just hang around the restaurant (as well as other ones nearby) and scavenge for scraps. Every once in a while, though - I saw this happen twice, and had it happen to me once - it would enact a much more complex scheme than simply going through the gutter: The crow had apparently discovered that money could be exchanged for food, so it would wait until it saw a likely mark, squawk at them to get their attention, then pick up and drop a coin. Anyone who responded would witness the bird hopping a few feet away, then following its "victim" toward the source of its next snack. When the crow approached me, it dropped a nickel on the ground. I stooped, picked up the coin, and then jumped slightly when the bird made a noise that sounded not unlike "Taco!' Needless to say, I bought that crow a taco. The final out-of-pocket cost for me, minus the nickel, was something like >l.T5. Even so, I figured a bird that smart deserved a reward simply for existing Of course, that was probably exactly what I was supposed to think. TL;DR: A crow paid me five cents to buy it a taco. onyourleftbooob: nadiaoxford: I don’t have a hard time believing this.

Before 9/11, when airport security was way more lax, my dad’s friend ran an airport scam ring with like 30 of his friends. They would literally do this - waltz on in to the airport, find a gate that looked overbooked, and buy a ticket. Because of the slower computer systems, they could get away with buying tickets seconds before a plane was announced to be overbooked, then offer to give up their seats for the cash. They also all used to fly under my dad’s friend’s name and racked up like millions of frequent flyer miles. They’re pretty sure that at one point, there were five different guys flying under the same name in the air at the exact same time and the airlines just contacted the guy saying “oh there’s been a glitch.” They never got caught until my dad’s friend got a passive aggressive letter from Delta in his mail THIS YEAR (15+ years after they stopped) basically saying “we know what you did.”

Whether or not the data would be more balanced if men were more frequently exposed to the children (which we might know, if women didn’t win custody in over 90% of divorce proceedings, and if men weren’t still expected to be the primary financial providers), there still remains a problem, there still remains a victim, and there still remains a perpetrator who must be held accountable for their actions.<br/></p></blockquote> <p>Feminists won’t waste a single opportunity to point out that men more frequently perpetrate domestic violence but when you show them women commit child abuse more frequently you could hear a pin drop.</p>

Animals, Bad, and Children: 61below tumblr Follow lovelylilpup prokopetz I've seen a lot of videos going around of urban-dwelling critters coming to humans for help with various problems, ranging from boxes stuck on their heads to young trapped down a storm drain, and it's gotten me to thinking On the one hand, it's kind of fascinating that they know to do that. On the other hand, setting any questions of how this sort of behaviour must have arisen aside for the nonce, does it ever strike you how weird it is that we've got a whole collection of prey species whose basic problem-solving script ends with the step "if all else fails, go bother one of the local apex predators and maybe they'll fix the problem for no reason"? roachpatrol well, come to think of it, we're at the top of the food chain but we almost exclusively hunt and kill prey out in the country raccoons and possums and foxes and crows all succeed in an urban environment because they're opportunistic and observant. and almost none of them would have observed us pounce on one of their species and then start eating it, you know? a lot of them would have observed that we scream and chase them out of wherever we don't want them to be, but other animals are territorial too. but there's a number of situations where humans feed whoever's bold enough to take them up on the offer, and we do tend to pull garbage off of other animals as soon as they slow down enough for us to catch. 'a human got me but nothing bad happened' is a much more frequent thing than 'a human got me and tried to eat me anyway like, we're masters of our environment, we make weird shit happen all the time, we have lots of great food and sometimes we share, and we almost never eat someone. it makes sense for urban animals, over the last century or so, to just keep an eye out for opportunities to use us, and to pass the habit on to their kids. tsfennec It really is a weird, funny thing. Like yeah, technically they're predators, and they get pretty screamy, especially if you try to take any of their stuff... but given the chance it seems like they'd rather help us out and sometimes they'll just randomly give you food, so??? I mean, I guess in fairytales and myths we've got our fair share of stories about dangerous people/creatures who might well kill you or otherwise ruin your life but to whom people nonetheless turn for help in desperate circumstances. So it's not like the perspective is exactly a foreign thing to our own mindset, really It's just that, y'know, we can't actually go make a deal with the faeries when there's something we can't figure out Which brings me to an interesting thought about the ubiquitous rule about never eating the faery food lest you find yourself forever unsatisfied with anything in the human world- and the potential parallels to the dangers of feeding wildlife human food lest they become addicted and too tame and dependent to be safe for either themselves or us. Hmm.) sapphicaquarius Okay, but that last bit with the Fae... makes almost perfect sense Of the stories I've read, the food of the Fae, its origins and effects, are often strange and/or obscure- Just like our food to most animals. The Fae are strange beings that seem to know weird things that give them power or an edge over us.- Just like us to animals. The Fae work and live by strange rules also ofen nonsensical or obscure to us Just like us to animals. The Fae can easily obtain vast amounts of things we consider rare/precious/desireable, and have no problem with dishing it out wantonly for no other reason than amusement.- Just like us to animals. The Fae sometimes are amused by having us around, but only on their terms and IF it amuses/intrigues them.- Just like us to animals. GUYS, I SENSE A PATTERN.... -they have arcane social conventions and the punishment for not paying the correct respects right is banishment, if you're lucky, and death if you're not -they have wild and unexpected parties where you'd least expect to find them, but if you're bold enough to entertain them they'll feed you and caress you and play with you all night time runs strangely in their realm. their homes are summeriands: warm and bright, no matter the season. there is always fruit on their tables. but not everyone who comes in from the cold is let back out again. -their games are cruel and complex and unfair, but if you can beat them by their own rules you will access riches beyond imagining. sometimes they just fucking fuck with you, the fuckheads -they will absolutely steal your children away. when your children return-if they ever do-they will come back strange. they will know things they shouldn't. they won't know things that they should. your strange children might survive, might even prosper, might take wives and husbands and have children of their own but they will always be marked by their time away from your world. the price for pissing them off is always death. sometimes just you. sometimes your whole community if you are very good, and very smart, and very brave, they will grant your wish. oceaxereturns My eyes just got wider and wider the further down I read.

Black History Month, Dove, and Family: <p>Black history month day 8: Singer-songwriter Billie Holiday</p> <p>Billie Holiday was born Eleanora Fagan in Philadelphia on April 7, 1915. in Philadelphia. She was the daughter of an unmarried teenaged couple an her father did not live with her mother. Not long after Holiday was born, her father abandoned his family to pursue a career as a jazz musician and her mother moved to Philadelphia at age 19 after being kicked out of her parents&rsquo; home for becoming pregnant. Holiday spent most of her young childhood living with her aunt and her aunt’s mother-in-law in Baltimore while her mother worked transportation jobs.</p> <p>Holiday had a tumultuous childhood, having difficulty adjusting to her mother’s frequent absences and being regularly truant from school, she was brought before juvenile court and sent to a Catholic reform school when she was nine. By age 11 she had dropped out of school entirely. Shortly after that she working long hours at a restaurant, was nearly raped by her neighbor, and moved with her mother to Harlem where they both became prostitutes, all before Holiday was 14.</p> <p>Later in her teen years, the girl born Eleanora began to sing at nightclubs under the stage name Billie Holiday, after actress Billie Dove and her father Clarence Holiday. She was quickly noticed for her unique improvisational style and earthy, and distinct vocals that made up for her lack of formal training and range. She shot to popularity in the 30s and 40s, releasing such haunting classics as “Gloomy Sunday“ and ”Strange Fruit” along with many other recordings treasured in the standard library of jazz classics. </p> <p>Sadly, the hardness of her life did not end with her public success. Much of her money went into feeding her drug and alcohol addictions that eventually contributed to her death of liver and heart failure at only 44.</p>

This is a marathon of EVERY EPISODE (all 203) of <i>Teen Titans Go!</i> repeated 2.5 times in a row. Who asked for this? Who asked for “instead of a decent or just remotely tolerable Christmas schedule, maybe with some of those <a href="https://cnschedulearchive.tumblr.com/post/168612174975/lemme-tell-you-something-the-upcoming-christmas"><b>old specials we put on the app</b></a>, let’s just run a show we have already marathoned for almost every other major holiday or premiere this year for EIGHT DAYS??”</p> <p>I mean seriously, I’m just… shocked. This is seriously like, <a href="https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/133702618856816640/239881294710833163/unknown.png">a joke schedule I probably made to joke around on Discord once</a>. It even has the small bit of <i>Steven Universe</i>.</p> <p>Oh yeah, there’s <i>Steven Universe</i>. I hope you noticed that. I hope you noticed those TWO episodes it has, both being TV premieres (Sadie Killer, Kevin Party). 1 week before the <i>SU</i> half-hour special that will probably get super-hyped by CN. Those two episodes makes this schedule just even more absurd. The <i>TTG</i> marathon could have stopped that day. It could have stopped after <i>SU</i>. But nevertheless, it persisted.</p> <p>New Years Eve is the absolute stopping point for the marathon. <i>Unikitty!</i> premieres on the 1st and will start getting all the attention for a month at least. So there’s an end. But still. Eight. Fucking. Days. I don’t mean to curse on a blog about, well, Cartoon Network. But still. EIGHT. FUCKING. DAYS.</p> <p>I-I try to find silver linings in every terrible CN schedule. Like that one from <a href="https://cnschedulearchive.tumblr.com/post/163517491970/normally-i-wait-until-sunday-to-post-this-stuff">August</a>. “At least they’re giving <i>OK K.O.! </i>a lot of trust!” But… I don’t… think I can find a silver lining in this. <i>SU </i>is just aired because it was advertised so and that they need to air those episodes before “Lars of the Stars” and “Jungle Moon” the week after. So, here’s my attempt at a silver lining for this… you don’t need to watch this. You could be watching <a href="https://cnschedulearchive.tumblr.com/post/168612174975/lemme-tell-you-something-the-upcoming-christmas"><b>the holiday specials that CN posted on their app</b></a>. Make your own schedule out of that. I could watch “Hey Hey It’s Knishmas” all the doo-dah day if I wanted to.</p> <p>Yeah, I know. The silver lining is basically “don’t watch CN this week.” But, yeah. It’s got to the point where that’s my suggestion. Good luck trying to catch a Christmas special on Boomerang, btw. <b><a href="https://cnschedulearchive.tumblr.com/post/168612174975/lemme-tell-you-something-the-upcoming-christmas">Just the app or cable on demand.</a></b></p> <p>2017 has been one heck of a year for the network. You had two new shows! <i>Ben 10</i> and <i>OK K.O.!</i> First show is alright, second show is amazing! Then <i>Teen Titans</i> showed up! Then the original <i>Ben 10</i> showed up! Then <i>Regular Show</i> showed up after ending in January! Then <i>Ben 10</i> and <i>Regular Show</i> disappeared quickly. But that was expected. The bigger surprise is that <i>Teen Titans</i> is still on the lineup.</p> <p>But the schedule had problems. <i>Teen Titans Go!</i> marathons were getting longer. More frequent. More pointless. I thought there would be some nice stuff for Christmas. I thought the <a href="https://cnschedulearchive.tumblr.com/post/168612174975/lemme-tell-you-something-the-upcoming-christmas"><b>holiday specials they put on the CN app</b></a> were a good sign.</p> <p>I shouldn’t have hope.</p> <p>Merry Christmas!</p> <h2>Here’s what’s new that week:</h2> <ul><li> <i><b>Steven Universe</b></i> - Friday (12/29) at 7:30p</li></ul><h2>Top… 2:</h2> <ol><li> <i><b>Teen Titans Go!</b></i> - 384 - 99%</li> <li> <i><b>Steven Universe</b></i> - 2 - 1%</li> </ol><p>I don’t usually post schedules from over a week from now, but I just had to for this. I don’t think anything will change on the schedule. Maybe the order of which episodes air, but that doesn’t really matter. If there’s something more drastic, like, say, CN ending the marathon early for some surprise reason, I’ll be there to change the pic.<br/></p> </blockquote>

Bad, Children, and Fire: IS HE DOING IT ON PURPOSE? When a client of mine tells me that he became abusive because he lost control of himself, I ask him why he didn't do something even worse. For example, I might say, "You called her a fucking whore, you grabbed the phone out of her hand and whipped it across the room, and then you gave her a shove and she fell down. There she was at your feet, where it would have been easy to kick her in the head. Now, you have just finished telling me that you were 'totally out of control' at that time, but you didn't kick her. What stopped you?" And the client can always give me a reason. Here are some common explanations "I wouldn't want to cause her a serious njury. " "I realized one of the children was watching." "I was afraid someone would call the police." "I could kill her ifI did that." "The fight was getting loud, and I was afraid neighbors would hear." And the most frequent response of all: "Jesus, I wouldn 't do that. I would never do something like that to her." The response that I almost never heard-I remember hearing it twice in fifteen years-was: "I don't know." These ready answers strip the cover off of my clients' loss-of-control excuse. While a man is on an abusive rampage, verbally or physically, his mind maintains awareness of a number of questions: "Am I doing something that other people could find out about, so it could make me look bad? Am I doing anything that could get me in legal trouble? Could I get hurt myself? Am I doing anything that I myself consider too cruel gross, or violent?" A critical insight seeped into me from working with my first few dozen clients: An abuser almost never does anything that he himself con siders morally unacceptable. He may hide what he does because he thinks other people would disagree with it, but he feels justified inside. I can't remember a client ever having said to me: ""There's no way I can defend what I did. It was just totally wrong." He invariably has a reason that he considers good enough. In short, an abuser's core problem is that he has a distorted sense of right and wrong. sergle: i’m reading why does he do that and this last part has been ON FIRE, i am hollering in my house.

America, Ass, and Bad: Music CONFESSIONS TUMBLRCOM IP-HOP HOORAY ee q eers of the music world celebrate their rise to the top of the charts -and ther newfound industry power By dames Patrick Herman. Photographed by Elig-FEs TUMBLR.COM s Lauryn Hills Grammy sweep last February proved, America is, offi. cially, a hip-hop nation. And after two decades under male leadership, women now rule. Just ask rap kingpin Sean "Puffy" Combs "Female MCs always had it so hard-no respect-it was like thcy was livin' in Siberia, he says. "But it made 'em strong. Now their shit's so hot, they dont needa mike to be heard." In fact, soon every one will be hearing the new albums from hip-hop queens Mary J. Blige, Aaliyah, Lil' Kim, Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, and Da Brat, all friends as well as frequent collaborators. They're even making plans to take their act-The Bitch Tour-on the road with a funky twist on Lilith Fair, coming to a sold-out stadium near you. But dont call them divas (except perhaps for Ms. Blige, who cited personal drama at the last minute and was unable to attend the photo shoot). Mary J. Blige, 28. Claim to fame: The queen of hip-hop soul. There's something about Mary: "Hip-hop plays a big part in my music. I've always been sample-orient ed-Barry White, Isaac Hayes. The strcets is gonna be happy with my record. You'll cry to it, dance to it, fuck to it. I've done a lot of love songs. Most of'em are about how fucked up women are treated. It's good to know my music helps people. Im goin' through it, too-the same tears, the same black eye, the same stomachachc and I'm gonna get us through it. I'm at such a place now, such a peace, I cannot be knocked down. Im Mary the lone woman. Mmm-hmmm," What becomes a diva most: "Someone who got through tough times and paid dues, like Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin. Good God, those were war storics they had to tell. Men wanted to rule them and treat them like shit, and they got through it." The Mary Jane girls: "People expect us to be com- petitive, but I didn't give Lauryn Hill her career-that was somethin' she worked for. And she didn't give me my career. Why should I think about competition if she got somethin' she could contribute to my project? I cannot be jealous. It's wasted energy. Ijust did a duet with the Queen of Soul herself, Miss Aretha Franklin I keep quiet when the veterans are in the room-and honey, she is a veteran.

Fierce competition: "People try to bring negativity my way, especially with Brandy and Monica. If Im competing with anybody, I'm competing with myselfto be original." What becomes a diva most: "Oh, that word. The Websters definition is an opera singer who has a lot of range, but that's changed over time. Now a diva is a bitch. Were not all bitchy.
