dear caretakers of children: stop telling kids “I don’t care who started it!”. you’re teaching children to ignore unequal power balances. that leads to legitimate belief in things like reverse racism, misandry, heterophobia, etc. you’re teaching children that it’s wrong to retaliate when they are wronged. “who started it” is very, very relevant.
I’m just a needy piece of shit that needs constant reassurance that I’m wanted
200% sure that all of my friend have secret meetings where they just talk about how annoying I am
look at this flawless freaking woman
It’s gross that they’d keep her off the list after opening it up to a fan vote where she garnered more than enough support for inclusion (and for good reason; it wasn’t as if she was an ironic popular choice). Seeing her in there would mean a great deal to a lot of people, obviously.
But I think that her fans’ love and support actually does mean more. Consider: Time is a print magazine. Since 2008, news magazines have lost 43% of their single-copy sales on average. Time continually loses upwards of 10% of its advertisers, each year. And their readership (as of 2011) is, on average, 48 years old and 53% male.
In 2013, the average single copy circulation for Time sold on newsstands was barely over 60,000. Laverne has 72,900 Twitter followers alone. I’m not sure she even needs Time magazine to tell her she’s influential in 2014.
look at this thing again i hate the ocean so much it tastes weird and half the animals that come out of it look like jokes
Puffer fish are the cutest, happiest fish ever.
…except that fish isn’t happy. :\
It’s incredibly stressed (not to mention unable to breathe).
Puffers only puff up like that when they’re essentially convinced that they’re going to die if they don’t; it’s an effort to scare off predators or to make it so they’re too large to be easily eaten.
See those little spines? Those are there to also poke the mouth and face of the thing trying to kill it, in the hopes that the biting thing will let go when it gets stabbed.
A puffer that puffs up is an unhappy, frightened puffer.
Basically, this is not a cute picture.
This is a puffer fish being purposely stressed out by some asshole so they could take a ‘cute picture’.
Reblogging for the comment.
puffer fish are still cute deflated though. They have cute •3• faces and eat shrimp cutely. And if you eat them wrong you’re screwed.
we’re halfway thru april, u know what tht means?
