silly silly little comic
Ladies, gentlemen, and other gentlepeople: my girlfriend’s ‘silly little comic’
Oh my fucking gods this is perfect
This makes me smile
i dont get offended at white people jokes even though im white because:
- i can recognize white people as a whole have systemically oppressed POC in america, which is where i live
- most people when they make white people jokes only mean the shitty white people and i am not a shitty white person
- im not a pissbaby
my white friends that have reblogged this give me life
4. sometimes i am a shitty white person and the jokes remind me to FUCKIN STOP
I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”

This week, India became the first Asian nation to reach Mars when its orbiter entered the planet’s orbit on Wednesday — and this is the picture that was seen around the world to mark this historic event. It shows a group of female scientists at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) congratulating one another on the mission’s success.
The picture was widely shared on Twitter where Egyptian journalist and women’s rights activist Mona El-Tahawy tweeted: “Love this pic so much. When was the last time u saw women scientists celebrate space mission?”
In most mission room photos of historic space events or in films about space, women are rarely seen, making this photo both compelling and unique. Of course, ISRO, like many technical agencies, has far to go in terms of achieving gender balance in their workforce. As Rhitu Chatterjee of PRI’s The World observed in an op-ed, only 10 percent of ISRO’s engineers are female.
This fact, however, Chatterjee writes, is “why this new photograph of ISRO’s women scientists is invaluable. It shatters stereotypes about space research and Indian women. It forces society to acknowledge and appreciate the accomplishments of female scientists. And for little girls and young women seeing the picture, I hope it will broaden their horizons, giving them more options for what they can pursue and achieve.”

It’s the light. You could be anywhere and the golden light would tell you what time of year it is, the light that makes possible the opening of the gates between the worlds.
what i love about this song is that the plot goes like this:
- miranda lambert is driving her car and sees carrie underwood lookin’ like she’s on her way to church
- she rolls down the window and is like, “hey, do you wanna like, rob a bank or kill a man?”
- carrie underwood holds up HANDFULS OF CASH and goes, “i would like to do exactly that!”
- AND AWAY THEY GO
I’m actually kinda sure that Carrie was on her way to get married and got cold feet.
forget mike fisher, carrie underwood. run away with miranda lambert for a life of crime!!
If you are ever feeling sad or inadequate, just remember:
There is almost a 100% chance that at some point in time, your favorite historical figure fell up the stairs.
i love catfish so much because they act like theyre fbi agents or something when theyre really just using reverse google image search
i thought you meant the animal and let me tell you that was a wild minute of me trying to figure out the psychology of fish thinking they’re federal law enforcement
