There’s a real snippet of truth to this.
The whole article is fantastic, as is pretty much everything Linda Holmes writes.
I WANT TO BE A N7 OPERATIVE PRINCESS
that comment makes it worth it.
“Commander Jane Shepard, I have significant information about the Reapers that might interest y-“
“Is this the proper way to greet royalty?”
*kneels down* “Forgive me, your highness.”
*claps hands.* “Javik, I require assistance.”
“Yes, your majesty?”
“Dispose of this peasant, toss them out the airlock.”
“As you command, princess.”
This NEEDS to be cosplayed, or at least drawn.
Commander with a tiara, kicking Reaper ass and taking names, looking regal as hell the whole time.
Humorously done but it brings up a very good point about the song. (And I like how the guys immediately reacted, “Wow, dude, that’s not okay.”)
This afternoon, the National Archives launched Founders Online—a tool for seamless searching across the Papers of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and Alexander Hamilton.
Through Founders Online you can now trace the shaping of the nation, the extraordinary clash of ideas, the debates and discussions carried out through drafts and final versions of public documents as well as the evolving thoughts and principles shared in personal correspondence, diaries, and journals. This beta version of Founders Online was funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) and contains over 119,000 documents. New documents will be added to the site on a continual basis.
An incredible new resource from the National Archives (with 42 mentions of “Tumbl[e]r” all before 1836!). Check it out.

Jessica Williams’ first rule for Hillary Clinton on Twitter: “Don’t tweet your junk.” http://on.cc.com/11eBih6
“‘There’s always that joke that there’s a Starbucks on every corner,’ says Justin Grimes, a statistician with the Institute of Museum and Library Services in Washington. ‘But when you really think about it, there’s a public library wherever you go, whether it’s in New York City or some place in rural Montana. Very few communities are not touched by a public library.’
In fact, libraries serve 96.4 percent of the U.S. population, a reach any fast-food franchise can only dream of.”
this makes me really happy

If you have this tshirt I automatically hate you with every fiber of my fucking being
and here we have handy misogynist trackers! t-shirts like this help you identify:
✔ who’s likely to disrespect women
✔ who’s likely to objectify women
✔ who expects women to submit to them
✔ who to just generally stay the fuck away from
I have a vagina & I would wear this shirt . Just sayin’ ; it’s just a fucking shirt . Get your head out of your ass .
You’re right, it’s just a fucking shirt! Why should you care? In truth, you don’t have to. You do you.
Personally, I care because I understand that sexism negatively affects everyone - including you! Including me! Including all men and all women! I also care because I know that all forms of sexism are destructive. Whether it’s on a shirt in the form of a joke, or coming out of someone’s mouth in the form of slut shame - all forms of sexism play their own role in creating the culture we live in. I care because I believe that by saying “it’s just a shirt! get your head out of your ass!” that we uncritically dismiss the attitude that created this shirt/popular phrase in the first place. The attitude where it’s cool/funny/edgy to continue a long historical pattern of degrading someone (women) because of something they can’t control (their gender). Not in my house muthafucka. Personally, I think everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity regardless of their identity. Inequality just ain’t right girl. I hope that one day you come to feel the same!
here have some friggin adorable kissing kittens
LET ME LOVE YOUUUUUUU!!!

#I really want to take a second to praise David for his acting here #because all you need to do is look at his face and you can see that everything is absolutely horribly wrong #and the most terrible part is how subtle it is #he doesn’t look outright panicked or distraught #he looks passive #and that’s the worst expression the doctor can have #because at least when there’s fear or desperation you know he doesn’t want to give up #you know he’s going to fight and he’s going to keep trying #but this is resignation #pure resignation #he realizes exactly what’s happened and what has to happen and how much it is going to tear him apart #and that face says there is no other option #all he can do is let it happen #it burns him alive but he can’t show it #he knows he can’t because it’s going to be hard enough for her #and he needs to be strong here #he needs to shut down and be as cold and detached as he can get #because it’s better than letting the pain in #it’s better than showing her exactly how much this is going to kill him #because that will only make it worse #that face says more in its subtleties than it ever could in outright expression #bravo David #truly
Do you all remember that other time his face was completely blank?
