I'm a Literature student and a waitress (who secretly wants to be a pirate)... I will blog random stuff that interests me/that I am obsessed about atm, there will always be One Piece, Supernatural and Marvel things though, I guarantee... xD
… complaining actually works… my internet provider fucked up. Like they sent a technician to get my connection up amd running but didn’t notify me… fucking morons… so they scheduled him to come again on Wendesday… then they sent me an email informing me that they can’t send someone before november 5th… fuck that. I called them and informed them very politely (cause the support guys are not really responsible for fucking up) that they messed up and I urgently need my internet… they are gonna send me a usb internet stick for free until i get my modem running… by courier on monday. HA! I usually never said anything about stuff like this and just bid my time… no use in that. Complain when you are in the right!
I was watching Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D the other night when my Dad pointed at Clark Gregg and said, “I knew him, I went to college with him.”
So after perusing my Dad’s old yearbook, we discovered this:
DEM PANTS THO.
Enjoy this little beauty tumblr friends.
that gif can never be used again because the pinnacle has been reached

Note to non-British fanfic authors: there’s no such thing as a £1 note, they were removed from circulation in 1988. The smallest note is £5, so when Sherlock “slipped a few notes over the counter” for a coffee he’s paid at least £10.
Yeah, so he bought Starbucks for himself and John. Sounds legit.
this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1
A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes
A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes
A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes
A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes
A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes
That’s some bullshit right there.
Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.
Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.
THE LAST LINE
This. I am tired of seing this numbers without thinking about woc. (via arobynsong)
have you ever just assumed that a word was pronounced a certain way and you end up pronouncing it incorrectly throughout your entire life and then one day someone corrects you and its like you can almost hear satan laughing as the flames of hell begin to seep up from underground and slowly burn you to death
We don’t need European fairy tales retold with dark-skinned characters
We need non-European fairy tales being told
Race-bending isn’t the answer here
Realizing that there are children who have non-European heritages and cultures who need their own stories being given representation is the answer
This is basically what I wrote my college thesis on
