It is his journey from there into the city where he observes a great many things as he observes the changes in the area where he is laid along a stretch of pavement, e.g romances, break ups, quarrels, gentrification etc. He learns to deal with people dropping chewing gum and cigarette butts onto him, and struggles emotionally when the street becomes run-down and more heavy-footed unkind people trample over him day and night. The story ends on a positive note, as he is transported to a seafront and reset on the pavement adjoining a beach, where barefoot girls and so on walk on him instead, making him happier and turning him into a man, so to speak. >>12460735 # >>12460736 # >>12460748 # >>12460752 # >>12460760 # >>12460789 # >>12460960 # >>12461047 # >>12461111 # >>12461154 # >>12461186 # >>12461234 # >>12461271 # >>12461440 # >>12461492 # >>12461521 # >>12461537 # >>12461627

Children, Dude, and Fucking: mycravatundone a girl i know told me how a guy she knows once moved out from his parents ate nothing but fries and meatballs for HALF A YEAR, and got scurvy. imagine the doctor's face when this guy shows up with like his gums bleeding and the doc has to fucking say DUDE.... THATS SCURVY.... in this day and age mycravatundone this is turning into a "how a person i know got scurvy" thread and im so here for this, please share your scurvy stories if you have any aquarianconstellations the other day someone posted pics from the reddit page r/zerocarbs where these fools only ate meat and 0 vegetables or fruits and all the posts were about various symptoms of scurvy. i died when one literally read 'i don't want to start the vitamin C debate again but mycravatundone THE VITAMIN C DEBATE elidyce My mother told me all about scurvy when I was five and trying to resist eating pumpkin and let me tell you it's been 35 years and I still get nervous if i go for two days without eating a green vegetable I told my own little picky eater about scurvy, rickets etc and now one of her most frequently requested lunch items is baby spinach, closely followed by carrots I'm not saying everyone should mildly traumatize their children to make them understand that vegetables are vital to ongoing possession of your teeth and organs, but.. no, that's exactly what I'm saying. Go for it. ariadne83 some guys i used to know went on a boys only road trip. they decided they were only going to eat things they could cook on the engine block of the car two of them got scurvy. one of them drank so much jagermeister + red bull that he temporarily lost the ability to see in colour. dexvoarn im sorry he what now Eat yer veggies

Drugs, Memes, and Music: The Black Eyed Peas Say Music Today Does Not Address Important lssues @balleralert The Black Eyed Peas Say Music Today Does Not Address Important Issues- Blogged By @tktrinidad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It has been eight years since TheBlackEyedPeas released an album, but now they’re back with a new single called “Street Livin’” which focuses on social justice and change. The Black Eyed Peas have been very vocal in saying that music of today needs a message, especially with topics like racism and sexism being at the forefront. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During an interview with Variety, the group talked about sexism in the music industry and how music currently lacks a sense of activism, especially surrounding the MeToo movement. Will.i.am said, “Music is probably … it does a really good job at diminishing the power of a woman. And that’s really sad. Especially Hip Hop, rock — sex, drugs and rock and roll. A woman is a resource in that sentence. It’s sad.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Taboo then went on to say that music doesn’t have a call to action anymore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It’s sad that, in this day and age of music, we don’t have a huge support for activism as we used to.In the ’60s, everybody was trying to make a statement with their music. It seems like more athletes are making a statement, standing up for causes, than actually in the music industry.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your thoughts?

What’s the difference? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As soon as a black woman has been lied to and cheated on by a black man, her girls are like, “you are better off with a white man. Leave his ass girl.” Women praise her for dating outside of her race. Does the race really matter when it comes to infidelity or lying? Last time I checked, all races cheat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, when a black man hooks up or marries a woman of another race he’s trash. Why is that? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “All these beautiful black women out here and he goes to a woman outside of his race.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, is it possible that he feels the same way you do towards men, better yet black men?

If you don’t pay, users’ access to your website will be slowed to a crawl - so independent people and small businesses can forget about getting onto that high speed access tier. </p> <p>This means that the American internet is going to be firmly under the control of those who have the most money. You’ll only get to see the content of those who can pay the ISPs to provide access at a reasonable speed. This means that you can expect to see skewed representation of just about everything, with those bigger businesses who can afford to pay ISPs a premium for access deciding what you can and cannot read, view and consume on the internet.</p> <p>This is not something that we have in the UK. Our ISPs compete with each other to provide higher speeds, better services and lower prices, but because there’s a monopoly in the US of a few ISPs who provide services, they can afford to do this to you.

Charlie, Head, and Memes: dean charlie benny Sam abaddon henry cast iel naomi Crowley I've always wondered why the mental health of young people in this day and age seems to be getting worse and yeah there are many causes and effects that I could start listing off, but I think if you go back to the roots then it all stems from a fucked up society. In this society we have people promoting individuality and that it's ok to be different and yet when people express themselves in any form (i.e. clothing, music taste, opinions, etc) they get judged for it, because it's not a part of the social norm and that person is then classed as "weird" even though they were only showing their individuality, because society said it was ok to. No wonder this generation is fucked up. People are being told one thing and then told something completely different. I honestly believe that's why a lot of people struggle, because in their head there's a battle between wanting to stand out and express their individuality, but then at the same time they just want to fit in and be accepted by people. I myself struggle with this. It's one of the reasons I have this account, because I'm too scared to post all of this on my own personal account for fear of social judgment. It shouldn't be that way, but unfortunately it is and of course I'd like it to change, but that won't be happening for a long time. - spn spncw spnfans spnfan spnfamily spnfandom supernatural supernaturalcw supernaturalfans supernaturalfan supernaturalfamily supernaturalfandom destiel destielforever j2 brothers winchester akf yana lyf teamfreewill j2m castiel mishacollins jensenackles deanwinchester jaredpadalecki samwinchester hero

Children, Dogs, and Facebook: アシュトンASHTON @Ashton5SOS The fact that we can't escape genetically modified foods in this day and age unless you have money is insane.They are feeding us chemicals. 4/10/15, 4:39 PM ischemgeek: fuckyeah-nerdery: pyronoid-d: escapedosmil: nizzlekicks: When you broke but you woke Wait… Guys what? Is this what you guys think it means when GMO comes up in conversation? Do you know what else is a GMO? Dogs. Literally ALL dogs have had their genetics modified to make them more docile, loyal, trusting, energetic, obedient ect. Ears of corn used to be the size of your thumb. Through selective ‘breeding’ we chose the strains of corn that were the biggest, fastest growing, most resilient ect. Ect. THAT is a GMO. I don’t know where the idea that genetic modification meant they’re injecting your food stuffs with chemicals to change its DNA. That’s not how it works. However, they ARE spraying your veggies with pesticides and that is something you should be worried about. Companies like Monsanto are evil. But not because they are breeding crops to feed more people. But because they’re monopolizing the farming market, sueing farmers who share a geographic area and have some of the same strains of crops in their fields because of unavoidable cross pollination and lying about their business practices. This is Normal Borlaug. In 1942 he received his Ph. D in plant pathology and genetics. In Mexico, he developed semi-dwarf, high-yield, disease resistant varieties of wheat. A genetically modified food. He introduced these to Mexico, Pakistan and India, resulting in double the wheat yields in a 5 year span. In 1970, Borlaug was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, for saving one billion lives from starvation, and contributing to world peace through increasing the world food supply. Genetically modified food is great. This, a thousand fucking times this. Privilege is spouting and spreading pseudo-science bullshit you saw on your Facebook feed or on Twitter because unlike people in drought and famine prone areas of the world, you have the option to do just that. Those other parts of the world that don’t have the benefit of a food surplus and can’t pick and choose what they eat depend on GMOs to not die of starvation or watch their children waste away.I despise Monsanto as much as the next person and if they ever go out of business, I’ll be the first to dance a jig, but condemning GMOs just because one megacorp is a pile of shitbags is beyond idiotic. If scientists can create new strains of seeds that can withstand disease, pests, all while yielding more foodstuff, then we should be throwing our support behind them. Also, “They are feeding us chemicals!” is a fundamentally ridiculous statement.  Why?  As a chemist, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret:  Everything is chemicals.

Yeah. Does that mean that these people deserved to have criminals go in and steal their private, personal property. <strong>Hell no.</strong> Yeah, it would be irresponsible and stupid for someone to walk down a dark alley in a bad neighborhood by themselves. But does that mean they deserve to be attacked and/or raped? Absolutely not.</p> <p>Provided these individuals are over the legal age, it is perfectly legal to take nude photos for themselves or loved ones. Their reason and motive for doing so is, quite frankly, no one’s damned business. Would I do it? God, no…and I especially would never trust the Internet to keep them private for eternity. <strong>But someone stole private property from another individual without their consent. Those thieves, and those thieves alone, are in the wrong, and they should be punished.</strong> This incident should provide clarity for others who may take such photos of themselves. Invest in a Polaroid or something. But it is not the celebrities’ fault that some sick pervert sought out these photos to <em>steal and distribute</em> them.</p> <p>And those who searched for and shared the photos are just as morally corrupt. There is no difference between them and the sickos who sit outside of a woman’s window with binoculars to watch her change or shower. Both are voyeuristic and disturbing violations of privacy.</p> <p>So yes, take your nude photos. But be warned that they could become public if entrusted to a server. The Internet is the last place you should count on for privacy. But also know that if they are found, stolen, and distributed without your consent, that is a crime, and they should pay. Ricky Gervais has a valid point. But the defense “If you don’t want them leaked, don’t take them” is so simplistic and single-minded, and it furthers the self-entitled “information” generation into thinking that they have done nothing wrong because those pictures were there in the first place. Disgusting.</p></blockquote>
