"you are blood of my blood, theon,  whatever else you may be." 


#queued#asioaf#got#we do not sew








*gasps for breath after laughing fit*
sorry I just imagined the Starks forcing Theon to learn to mend his clothes (he probably tears them fighting with Robb) and ickle Theon grumbling and muttering “I am a Greyjoy…we do not sew.”
English shouldn’t have so many words that sound the same with different spellings…especially when those different spelling can also be other words that are pronounced differently.  Really, it’s not fair.
So = therefore
Sow, as in “we do not sow” = to plant/spread seeds
Sew = a needle pulling thread (la, a note to follow soooo)
Sow (rhymes with cow) = female pig
And it’s made worse by the fact that sow and sew are verbs that conjugate identically.

faraashah:

westerners are obsessed with the idea of happiness as if it’s a constant state of being. happiness comes in moments. you dont “achieve” happiness. you experience it along with every other emotion on the spectrum. if you spend your life chasing this constructed idea of happiness you will never even be remotely content. work on being whole and feeling everything while increasing the happy moments. stop trying to be a “happy person.” just be a person.

X-men Facts.

ahhh but Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver did join the X-Men. For about three episodes of X-Men Evolution.

Though I suppose if you want to be technical they were still referred to as Brotherhood members, since the entire Brotherhood team joined, not just the twins, and it cut down on the confusion.

Of course, as in anything where Mystique is involved, no one’s sure if the join was sincere (and whether she bothered to inform the Brotherhood of her plans).

the reason male comic book fans work themselves into a frenzied rage over “fake geek girls" is because they think they can’t get a girlfriend because of their love for comic books (a.k.a nerdiness). if they accept that geek girls genuinely love comic books, then they’re left with the cold harsh reality that it’s not their nerdiness that makes them unattractive to women, but the fact that they are misogynistic condescending dickbags who need to be avoided AT ALL COSTS

642: In culo ai lupi

#another way to say a place is very far way is INCULANDIA that literally means inthearseland or just arseland#oh no i need to go to that place but it’s in arseland (via irefiordiligi)
also ‘in culo alla luna’ too ‘in the arse of the moon’. 
it is my favorite expression. 

oh!  In the American South, we like to say “it’s in Bumfuck Nowhere”
and “bumfuck” has been corrupted into bumblefuck and such
My mom particularly likes “bumblefuck.”
Damn though, “in culo alla luna” does sound reeeeeally far away ^u^

TWISTING CLASSICAL CHARACTERS LIKE DORIAN GRAY INTO A HOMOSEXUAL

Son, you might want to be sitting down for this one.

Dorian Gray was so gay the book was literally used as evidence in the author’s trial for sodomy.

And now you know…


The real “Lone Ranger,” it turns out, was an African American man named Bass Reeves, who the legend was based upon. Perhaps not surprisingly, many aspects of his life were written out of the story, including his ethnicity. The basics remained…

I think this speaks for itself. Accepting a person doesn’t mean you get to put limits on their freedom. You can’t be an ally and want us to stop talking, or labeling, or demanding to be heard.  

Acceptance has no exceptions. Period.
