what a beautiful person
And to the introverted theatre kids, public speakers with social anxiety, and florists with allergies.
Somewhere in the distance, Beethoven’s ghost is applauding.
my love for this post reaches no limits
My favourite translator said that when she was an ambassador for Hungary she took all these Japanese politicians on a tour and she was trying to circumtranslate ‘merry go round’ cause she didn’t know the Japanese word for it by calling it a ‘horse tornado for children’ and they had no blessed idea what she was saying and she finally started running in circles going up and down and they go ‘ohhhhh, in Japan we call those ‘merry-go-rounds’”
Lets just pretend there’s a read more here
I really do think I was abused as a kid, and that I’m being emotionally and verbally abused now.
I had an exhausting day at school which mostly consisted about me crying because my father antagonized me and I was back to the place where I am 7 or so years old and vulnerable and scarred to death of my father and where I can’t fight back because fighting back makes it worse and I feel like its my fault and I feel like … Like trash. Like a dog. (my father killed a dog with a baseball bat when he was my age and I can’t stop thinking about it, the way he told the story, so proud and self righteous and the way he laughed when I asked what happened to the dog before shrugging an saying matter oh factly, “I killed.”)
And then in English we talked about being adults and the transition from child to adult and I couldn’t stop thinking of all the young girls who are assaulted and raped and and and it’s seen as okay because they were adults even though they weren’t. Society made them seem that way.
And then physics was physics and the boys kept joking about how I was going to get mad and start telling at them any second and I’m just glad my face didnt read as,”Im about to burst into tears”.
Then art and a botched fire drill and more talking to adults about it until I cried and just
I found out that if you give your tomato plant adequate water and fertilizer you run the risk of it never flowering because consistently comfortable conditions convince the plant that there is no environmental pressure to spread and reproduce.
You can literally be a helicopter tomato parent and grow a spoiled directionless manchild tomato plant.
i hate when people go “well a lot of gamers may be bad on the internet, but i went to this con/expo/etc. this weekend and everyone i talked to was nice so it must be a vocal minority!!” like yeah no shit those people paid good money to go to that event and have fun and they’re not…
I don’t know why I’m in the hydra trash party dumpsters. Most people seem to be there because its their kink. It’s not mine though, and reading the comments about how sexy and porno it is actually makes me really uncomfy. I’ve read non and dub con before and never been able to stand it but I’m inthralled by the trash party. I want to know why I find it so captivating.
I’m fairly indifferent to all the characters. Bucky’s indifference is the key I think. No other trash party or whatever in another fandom would work. It also adds so much more bang to Winter Soldier recovery docs.
When Miranda was teaching a classmate to say “posoh” and “ketapanen” on January 19, her teacher scolded her. Native News Network reported her saying “You are not to speak like that! How do I know you’re not saying something bad? How would you like it if I spoke in Polish and you didn’t understand?”
The words Miranda was chastised for translate to “hello” and “I love you” in Menominee.
old news, but still gross
And THIS shows you why most Native American languages are either extinct or endangered.
Old as hell but reblogging for last comment 👆
Most of my Saturday was spent looking up stuff about Bina48.
BINA48 is a project of Terasem Movement, Inc™ and is designed to test whether a person’s consciousness can be downloaded into a non-biological or nanotechnological body after combining detailed data about a person through the use of future consciousness software
So lemme get this… the developer/CEO of the development company is a jewish trans lesbian woman and the highest paid female ceo in america, and this project is based on her wife, a black lesbian woman, and both are mothers with children from previous relationships who they have now each legally adopted???
this exists in the actual world and people still think sci fi can only be about straight cis vaguely-christian white men…….
During WWII, Japanese American soldiers were among the first to liberate the Nazi concentration camp in Dachau, Germany. “U.S military commanders decided it would be bad public relations if Jewish prisoners were freed by Japanese American soldiers whose own families were imprisoned in American concentration camps,” therefore, these Japanese American soldiers who liberated hundreds of Jews are missing in our history lessons.
See, that implies that our history lessons actually talk about the fact that our government put Japanese Americans IN camps - and that by our silence we LET them. We condoned it. That’s on the heads of every white person who stood silently by and said nothing.
Also, yeah, not regularly taught.
