Beautiful, Cats, and Crying: delthefunkyhomosexual: cryoverkiltmilk: kindaoffkilter: bemusedlybespectacled: linkislost: sighinastorm: tooiconic: lafayettelabaguette: beasti: clarenecessities: sapphic-matriarchy: system-fail-ure: karinanotcinerina: retro-geek: ultrafacts: gatochick: ultrafacts: pizzaismylifepizzaisking: majikkant: ultrafacts: Source Video of Tama Follow Ultrafacts for more facts The picture in the background of the second one Tama is boss THE TRAINS HAVE CARTOON TAMAS ON THEM Sad update everyone, Tama recently passed away… An estimated 3,000 people, including railway officials, attended Tama the cat’s funeral on Sunday, days after she died of heart failure aged 16. [x] For those who haven’t read articles about it, the local shrine elevated her to a god. She’s now the Eternal Stationmaster and patron god of the station. Beautiful. Now I’m crying thanks and a new cat was hired right? yep! her name is Nitama (essentially ”second tama” or “tama II”) and she served under Tama as an apprentice before being appointed her deputy she works very hard Everytime this crosses my dash, I reblog. It is the law. Law I’m crying at 11pm over train cats Nitama, already now a mature cat (born 2010), has a protege named Yontama (fourth Tama, b. 2016).  There is no information available for either the physical befellment or tragic self-disgrace which has removed Santama from contention. ^Nitama majestic, and below with Yontama Yontama. a legacy okay but actually what happened to santama (or sun-tama-tama, which is her name because it’s a pun on santama) was that she was basically sent to train for the position in okayama and they liked her so much they refused to send her back “Sun-tama-tama” (a pun off of “Santama”, lit. “third Tama”) was a calico cat sent for training in Okayama. Sun-tama-tama was considered as a candidate for Tama’s successor, but the Okayama Public Relations representative who had been caring for Sun-tama-tama refused to give the cat up writing, “I will not let go of this child, she will stay in Okayama.” [25] As of September 2018, Sun-tama-tama is working as the stationmaster in Naka-ku, Okayama and appears occasionally on Tama’s Twitter account. Every time I see this post there’s new info and it gets better I will not let go of this child @thecutestcatever Look at this wholesome post

Journey, Memes, and Best: William and Ellen Craft escaped enslavement in 1848. Ellen's light complexion allowed her to dress as a white man. She then claimed William was her slave. They traveled first class all the way. theblaquelioness Most runaway slaves fled to freedom in the dead of night, often pursued by barking bloodhounds. A few fugitives, such as Henry “Box” Brown who mailed himself north in a wooden crate, devised clever ruses or stowed away on ships and wagons. One of the most ingenious escapes was that of a married couple from Georgia, Ellen and William Craft, who traveled in first-class trains, dined with a steamboat captain and stayed in the best hotels during their escape to Philadelphia and freedom in 1848. Ellen, a quadroon with very fair skin, disguised herself as a young white cotton planter traveling with his slave (William). It was William who came up with the scheme to hide in plain sight, but ultimately it was Ellen who convincingly masked her race, her gender and her social status during their four-day trip. Despite the luxury accommodations, the journey was fraught with narrow escapes and heart-in-the-mouth moments that could have led to their discovery and capture. Courage, quick thinking, luck and “our Heavenly Father,” sustained them, the Crafts said in Running a Thousand Miles for Freedom, the book they wrote in 1860 chronicling the escape. - smithsonianmag.com theblaquelioness

Advice, Books, and Fail: Sylvia J. @justviasyl On 10/24, I had 12 days remaining on my monthly MetroCard when it read "invalid" Just 30 minutes ago, it read invalid again, and it doesn't expire until 12/6. How much more time and money do I have to waste, #MTA? Your best advice is for me to mail it in. You must be jokin 8:04 PM-12 Nov 2018 2 Likes 2 li 2 NYCT Subway@NYCTSubway-8h wReplying to @justviasyl Hi Sylvia - -we know how frustrating this can be. Unfortunately, yes, a malfunctioning Unlimited Ride MetroCard must be mailed into us for investigation. Please do so right away as the reimbursement is based on the postmark date. (12) ABD NYCT Subway@NYCTSubway 8h Replying to @justviasyl The good news is that we are working on a new fare payment system that will include contactless and mobile payment options and, we believe, will be far more reliable and efficient. See mtainfo/press-release/ for more details. (2/2) л BD a J. @justviasyl 1h Replying to @NYCTSubway 1/3: 1) Visited the MetroCard Customer Service Centre-expecting reimbursement within 2 weeks like I was told. 2) Can you please clarify whether we get a new card/money is deposited baclk into the acc. we purchased the MetroCard with? 3) Still haven't heard about 10/24's incident Sylvia J. @justviasyl 60m Replying to @NYCTSubway 2/3: and I'm supposed to consistently waste more money when these issues occur and play the waiting game. My mom also sent in a claim form on 9/23 and has received nothing. Worst service ever. Don't make promises and fail to deliver, please Syia J. @justviasyl 59m Replying to @NYCTSubway 3/3: What are the statistics like for issues like this? This happens a lot in my neighborhood and I know a lot of people who would not come forward and chase after these happenings because of the lengthy process and/or language arrier Sylia J. @justviasyl 43m Replying to @NYCTSubway Great, it really is about time for contactless and mobile payment options to be available. More time should be spent on implementing more efficient processes. justforsmiles: justforsmiles: justforsmiles: justforsmiles: My friend said: “You’re such a millennial - taking the fight to social media.” Yep. That I did. I’m just livid.  I’ll stop sharing this when the MTA stops taking all my hard-earned money I could be using for tuition, stickers, books, food, and other expenses. (Oh wait, that’s never…) Reblogging one week later…nope, I still have not heard anything regarding my 10/24 incident. I WILL NOT LET THE MTA get away with any of this so easily  The MTA has been even more upsetting this week. It has been taking two hours to get to work and get home…four hours of my life being stuck on trains that constantly seem to be experiencing extensive delays. OH AND STILL NOTHING from the MTA…I WANT MY REIMBURSEMENTS. Two weeks. It has been over a month since my first incident. The funny thing is that I’ve noticed MTA workers seated by the train station stairs and guys in uniform looking over the turnstiles. Let me just flatter myself for a moment and pretend they’ve seen posts like this going around and they sense more people will try to get through without paying. I have not done that but that just gets me even more frustrated. I am NOT at all well off to be in this position right now. MTA, you are absolutely dead in my books.
