Books, Fucking, and Google: saurons-optometrist Follow siniristiriita Having a phone with an internet is such a fucking luxury, though? Like, in the 1980's, if l on a saturday night suddenly needed to find out whether birch trees and the Wendingo myth were native to the same areas, Iwould have to wait until the library opens on monday, go in hoping they have books on trees that happen to mention where birches have spread globally, and then ask if they have any books on the myths and folklore of native americans, receive a weird look from the librarian, find our that there's one book in another library next town over, but it's being borrowed by someone else, wait two weeks to get it, and then read the entire damn thing only to discover that this one doesnt mention wendingos at all And I just got my answer with two google searches, in less than two minutes The answer is yes vegansamstudies kcough coughk where did this question come from??? siniristiriita Well, I'm from Finland, and as a first thing, if there's one thing to know about Finland, it's full of birch trees. Also, at this time of the year, the sun sets early so it's completely black out there at 4 pm. These things do happen in the northern hemisphere. I couldn't get a proper picture, but this is roughly what a birchwood looks at night It's actually way, way creepier when the sky is black and everything is dark, and it's freezing cold because Mother Nature does not love us. Also, humans are good at pattern recognition and creeping the shit out of themselves. Now consider Source: siniristiriita 38 notes The Birchwood

Animals, Books, and Children: purple-ladys-stuff Question... An anguished question from a Trump supporter: "Why do liberals think Trump supporters are stupid?" The serious answer: Heres what we really think about Trump supporters- the rich, the poor, the malignant and the innocently well-meaning, the ones who think and the ones who dont.. That when you saw a man who had owned a fraudulent University, intent on scamming poor people, you thought Fine." That when you saw a man who had made it his business practice to stiff his creditors, you said, "Okay." That when you heard him proudly brag about his own history of sexual abuse, you said, "No problem. That when he made up stories about seeing muslim- Americans in the thousands cheering the destruction of the World Trade Center, you said, "Not an issue." That when you saw him brag that he could shoot a man on Fifth Avenue and you wouldn't care, you chirped, "He sure Knows me That when you heard him illustrate his own character by telling that cute story about the elderly guest bleeding on the floor at his country club, the story about how he turned his back and how it was all an imposition on him, you said, "That's cool!" That when you saw him mock the disabled, you thought it was the funniest thing you ever saw That when you heard him brag that he doesn't read books, you said, "Well, who has time? That when the Central Park Five were compensated as innocent men convicted of a crime they didn't commit, and he angrily said that they should still be in prison, you said, "That makes sense." That when you heard him tell his supporters to beat up protesters and that he would hire attorneys, you thought, "Yes!" That when you heard him tell one rally to confiscate a man's coat before throwing him out into the freezing cold, you said, "What a great guy!" That you have watched the parade of neo-Nazis and white supremacists with whom he curries favor, while refusing to condemn outright Nazis, and you have said, "Thumbs up" That you hear him unable to talk to foreign dignitaries without insulting their countries and demanding that they praise his electoral win, you said, "That's the way want my President to be." That you have watched him remove expertise from all layers of government in favor of people who make money off of eliminating protections in the industries they're supposed to be regulating and you have said, "What a genius!" That you have heard him continue to profit from his businesses, in part by leveraging his position as President, to the point of overcharging the Secret Service for space in the properties he owns, and you have said, "That's smart!" That you have heard him say that it was difficult to help Puerto Rico because it was the middle of water and you have said, "That makes sense." That you have seen him start fights with every country from Canada to New Zealand while praising Russia and quote, "falling in love" with the dictator of North Korea, and you have said, "That's statesmanship!" That Trump separated children from their families and put them in cages, managed to lose track of 1500 kids has opened a tent city incarceration camp in the desert in Texas - he explains that they're just "animals"- and you say, "well, ok then. That you have witnessed all the thousand and one other manifestations of corruption and low moral character and outright animalistic rudeness and contempt for you, the working American voter, and you still show up grinning and wearing your MAGA hats and threatening to beat up anybody who says otherwise What you don't get, Trump supporters in 2018, is that succumbing to frustration and thinking of you as stupid may be wrong and unhelpful, but it's also...hear me.. charitable Because if you're NOT stupid, we must turn to other explanations, and most of them are less* flattering Fuente: purple-ladys-stuff 25,271 notas A message to red caps

Click, Crush, and Cute: Finn Rey Click for some fluff Premise:Rey drags Finn into the freezing cold to make a snowman. Bonus: 1990's AU (kogami) <p>I just had to write this one (90s high school AU):</p> <p>β€œC’mon, let’s go!” Rey squealed as she drug Finn along the path to a patch of freshly fallen snow. β€œI still can’t believe you’ve NEVER made a snowman before.”</p> <p>Finn desperately tried to pull his winter cap over his head with the hand Rey wasn’t clutching, β€œThere isn’t exactly a whole lot of time for frolicking in the snow when you’re being brainwashed and trained at First Order Academy you know.”</p> <p>β€œExcuses!” Rey laughed, β€œI grew up in a desert and I still made one as soon as I had a chance. I don’t even think you would be out here right now if I wasn’t forcing you.”</p> <p>β€œYou’re right about that. I don’t like cold!” he huffed out a cloud of icy breath. β€œBesides, if I want to be around cute spherical things, I’ll hang out with BB-8. No assembly required.”</p> <p>β€œDon’t be a baby, it’s not even that cold. We are going to build a snowman, we are going to have fun, and we are going to crush Ben in the snow sculpture contest!” Rey stated this last goal with a sort of fiery determination that Finn almost found frightening.<br/> β€œAre you ever going to let your feud with that weird theater kid from Mr. Skywalker’s class go?”<br/> β€œNEVER! He CHEATED last time!” Rey fumed as she began furiously packing snow. She continued muttering as she referred to the plans she had scrawled on some scrap paper. Finn decided it was best to go along with it.</p>
