imagine an entire room and it’s all bed
no floor, just bed
you roll too far to one side? don’t worry, bed’s still there
all is bed
I decided years ago that one day I would have this room. It will be MINE!
Well then it’s a good thing I hate sports *slams button*
The year is 2027. It is Super Bowl season. The football players that have been selected for this year’s culling huddle in a sad, discontented mass in the middle of an overgrown stadium. The stink of fear mingles with the smell of fresh earth, an unholy bouquet for a terrible day.
Then they begin arriving, singly and in groups. Their claws glint in the harsh stadium lights, and there is blood matted into their fur. The football players put on their game face, but the hollowness of their eyes betrays their true hopelessness. There is no use fighting, other than to make a brave showing.
After all, everyone knows the bears always win.

theyarnicorn asked: Yo, is Mitt Romney's new adopted grandson's name racist? White family with a history of "seeming racist" (lol) adopts a black baby and names him Kieran, which is a Celtic name meaning "blacky" or "little dark one." But, they love black people! They even have one in their family now!!!
Dear Romneys: we all already knew you we’re complete pieces of shit, but naming an infant, a fucking infant, something to drive home his “otherness” is fucking disgusting.
Wow so surprise surprise the Romneys could be bothered to fucking Google.
one tiny little nitpick and a quick word history (I know there is an actual word for this but I can’t remember it) thing.
Whatever the hell wikipedia says it doesn’t mean ‘blacky’ because black is Dhu or Dubh in Irish or Scots Gaelic.
It would have traditionally be given as a name to someone with dark (brown or black) hair and would probably have started as a nickname rather than a true name in much the same way as Rory (Ruaidh) means Red and was a nickname for someone with red hair before it because a true first name.
williamfbuckleyjr asked: I feel like I should apologize about my submission on Margaret Thatcher, sorry for getting some of your followers pissed
No worries friend, people will recover. Besides, if we all had the same opinions on things the world would be a pretty boring place.
pissed doesn’t cover it. The woman is a fucking accomplice to murder.
Here’s how to stop race and gender issues: stop talking about them. If you keep believing that you’re unequal, then you’ll never be equal.
let us all take a moment to reflect on the many advances in human rights that were won with total silence
Well that’s enough of that bullshit.
Known for being the first female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Margaret Thatcher was born in 1925 as the daughter of a grocer. Her father was locally involved in politics and so she grew up conservative. At Oxford, she studied chemistry and then law at the law school of City University. After a few unsuccessful elections, she became a Member of Parliament in 1959. Even then, people would remark that she would become Prime Minister one day. In 1970 she became the Secretary of Education and then the Leader of Opposition in 1975.
In 1979 she was elected Prime Minister. During her premiership, she fought the Falklands War, dealt with miner’s strikes, was credited for the downfall of the Soviet Union (alongside Reagan and Pope John Paul II) and worked hard to privatize Britain’s economy. Some say that Ronald Reagan and Thatcher were “political soul mates”, and they wouldn’t be incorrect.
Recently, Meryl Streep played her in “The Iron Lady” and she died on April 8th, 2013 of a stroke.
In short, she was perfect and I loved her. She had a great fashion sense and was full of sass, her quotes are golden. Christopher Hitchens once said that Thatcher had “the most beautiful skin I’ve ever seen on a woman and amazing beautiful eyes” and, knowing Hitchens, I find that both hilarious and accurate. The best thing about her was that she did not care what people thought of her. Period. The fact that she was apparently Britain’s most hated PM and was such a strong leader is what makes her an admirable person in my opinion, political views aside.
She also started wrecking the welfare state, destroyed the unions, ruined social housing(leading directly to the current housing crisis in the UK), brought in poll tax, (with Reagan) encouraged the kind of financial sector that directly caused the 2008 crash, supported Pinochet and introduced legislation that meant that hundreds of thousands of young LGBT people were banned from getting support from their schools and the children of LGBT parents were told their families were pretend and worthless.
But hey she was a snappy dresser with nice eyes so we’ll just forget that she and her policies have caused untold suffering and misery (not to mention deaths) to millions for over 30 years.
Fuck. This. Noise.
“Killed 99 bears”
a fact that if actually accomplished, should be put on a tombstone.
My favorite part is “We hope he has gone to rest.” What, like… they weren’t sure? Maybe, if ever the bear uprising should start again, he would rise from the ground to finish what he started and slay that 100th bear?
Was this man so powerful they are concerned he might not have decided to rest at all and is simply biding his time?
The bears made that tombstone.
A warning, and a prayer.
That he really, truely stays down.
This is too badass not to reblog.
I wonder if he stopped at 99 because he knew having ‘killed 100 bears’ on his tombstone would just look like hyperbole, whereas 99 would be a more literal seeming number
And he lived to be 86, which is really freaking old for that time. I wonder how old he was when he killed that last bear?
tbf if you killed 99 bears those fuckers are all waiting for you hoping for rest if about the best you’re gonna get cos I reckon they’re gonna be looking for some payback.
