“A three second exposure meant that subjects had to stand very still to avoid being blurred, and holding a smile for that period was tricky. As a result, we have a tendency to see our Victorian ancestors as even more formal and stern than they might have been.”
I’ve reblogged this before and I will reblog it again.
This is so great
beginning of joke
i honestly dont understand this joke and its frustrating me
Well, I guess you’re missing the
I do have a remarkable tendency to miss the Juicy Juice Hypotenuse.
Can we always call it that oh my god
Does anyone else lie in bed at 2:30am filled with the crippling fear that they’re never going to accomplish anything in life and fail miserably or is that just me
yeah that’s perfectly understandable because they dont see you as a human being they see you as this exotic piece of meat that they want to stick their penis into they’re racist as hell because they’re fetishising you and your people and it’s degrading as hell so you have every right to be uncomfortable and angry!!! if some bitch ass white man tries to pull that shit with u punch them right in the nose and just show them how amazing and powerful and and completely human u are and u will not stand to be hypersexualized and fetishized and dehumanized!!!
what the fuck. Since when are people getting offended about being thought of as attractive? That’s like blondes being offended by people preferring blondes over brunettes..
it’s not a case of being thought of as attractive, this goes beyond that. this is being seen as merely an object, some exotic treat, a trophy. it’s taking an entire race and dehumanising them as a whole, completely taking away the individuality of every single person in that racial group, the millions of people who are completely different in thousands of different ways and stripping them of who they are until they are nothing but exotic sex toys that are all the same. so no, it’s not like being offended by people preferring blonde hair over brown hair, this is racism.
Some people prefer a certain race, and they think of you as attractive. If a man were to have a habit of dating a certain demographic, he’s not dehumanizing you or treating you as less than human, he admires you and adores you as a person. Accusing someone of being that way when they’re not isn’t fair to that person.
There are some people who do dehumanize the ethnicity they find appealing, but to accuse all preferences of racism isn’t fair.
you’re so fucking wrong and you have absolutely no right to speak about racism/sexism and what is and isn’t fair because as a straight white male YOURE not the one that’s being fetishized you will never experience racism you will never experience sexism and you have no idea what it’s like so no offense but piss off
are you a boy? your clothes are boy clothes.
are you a girl? your clothes are girl clothes.
are you outside the binary of boy and girl? so are your clothes.
did someone just tell you your clothes don’t match your gender identity? they are a trashcan and their clothes are trashcan clothes.
this guy is systematically undoing the world
once my friend was waiting for her mom to pick her up and she called her mom and her mom said “im on my way, the traffic is just slow, im coming” and my friend went “mom i called the house phone”
30 Days of Hannibal: favourite cast interviews/panels

“I was creating what I, as a fannibal, wanted to see. So it was great to see so many people feeling the way I do and picking up on the details that resonated with me. It’s a very communal experience; I feel like we’re peers and there is a mutual respect and that everybody is coming from a place of admiration for the source material, myself included. It’s been a fun, sharing experience with the audience.” [x]
My next million dollar idea: reluctant exercise videos with people who aren’t perky.
"Just five more… I know, I kind of want to die right now too, but let’s just power through it."
"Okay, new yoga pose. It’s going to ache like a bastard until your hamstrings release, I’m not gonna lie."
"Stretch a little deeper… it’s okay to yell ‘fuck’ at this point, I won’t tell anyone."
I would watch the fuck out of that shit, and maybe even exercise to it too!
Oh god thank fucking christ.
I usually don’t reblog these, but I feel like some of my followers could probably use the reassurance. I definitely have these kinds of thoughts sometimes.
so i’m not crazy for randomly thinking such thoughts? what a relief!
Edgar Allan Poe had a name for it too: The Imp of the Perverse. he compared the impulses to a demon that urges people to do the wrong thing simply because it can be done
The compulsion to jump from high places is called “l’appel du vide" in French. The call of the void. I think it’s specific to that one instance, but I think it’s a cool phrase for this phenomenon in general.
I think about this with random sharp objects laying around, too. “What if I just jammed this into my eye or throat right now? … oh god WHAT.” Just… fucking christ, brain. Don’t.
Reblogging this again because most people don’t/never know how normal these thoughts are, and that can be a major source of stress. It’s okay. You’re okay. Just, you know, don’t follow through on that shit.
Oh THANK God! I have these damn moments on a weekly bases!
I’ve had a moment where I was waiting for my food at a restaurant and I looked down at the knife beside me since I had unrolled the silverware. All I thought was “Oh… A knife.” and a very detailed image flashed through my mind of me stabbing my left hand with the knife enough to go through it and get stuck to the table.
Or when I have friends sleep over and I happen to walk past them at like 6 am to go to the bathroom, I’ve had mental images of smothering them and thinking how easy it would be.
Glad to see this is normal, though I doubt any of my friends will be spending the night again any time soon
"When a little boy asserts himself, he’s called a “leader.” Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded “bossy.” Words like bossy send a message: don’t raise your hand or speak up. By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys—a trend that continues into adulthood. Together we can encourage girls to lead."
How many potatoes does it take to kill an Irish man?
just like the population of Ireland during the Great Famine
