when you wake up from a particularly disturbing dream and just stare at the ceiling for a while like what crevice of my mind did that even seep from
15 amazing things in nature you won’t believe actually exist
I am gonna make it my personal mission to see these places some day.
why the fuck cant we text the police
lets say there is a murderer in ur house and you’re hiding behind your sofa and you do have your phone with you but you can’t call the police because the murderer might hear you
Here in Canada you can
Here in England we just… scream and run
Here in Scotland we paint our faces and run towards the murderer
Here in Australia you are the murderer

Do we really have to take this?
A friend of mine was moving from her apartment. She asked me to look after some of her things. I agreed and not too long after she asked if her daughter Frances can come pick it up. I agreed and she came over with her boyfriend, who was also the father of her baby. I helped them carry the stuff down to the car, and during the whole visit exchanged possibly 10 words.
Next day I received these texts. I had to created a fiancee I didn’t really have in order for him to stop.
I never told my friend what her daughter’s boyfriend did. Now they are expecting a second child, so as you all see, there was no break up.
So Do we women really have to take this kind of attitude?
Do we have to invent things and people in order to be left alone.
I don’t want to have my titties banged.
I am not an easy lay.
I don’t deserve this.
Why do I go from being called “cute” “smart” and “pretty” in the beginning of the conversation, to “fatty” “bitch” and “ugly” in the end?
Reblog if you are against sexual harassment.
how do people like this actually exist what the fuck
The only thing that made him back off was the idea that you already had another man in your life.
That thing people do when they’re embarrassed after doing something monumentally stupid and instead of backing off or apologizing they continue talking in the hopes that they don’t seem like a huge moron and somehow manage to instead come off as bigger moron.
No seriously though, people like this are the worst. They make me so angry and just ashamed of people in general. People like this exist because we live in a society that enables that sort of behavior.
Its embarrassing, they’re embarrassing.
Why Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes
For 75 years, Finland’s expectant mothers have been given a box by the state. It’s like a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that can even be used as a bed. And some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates.
It’s a tradition that dates back to the 1930s and it’s designed to give all children in Finland, no matter what background they’re from, an equal start in life.
The maternity package - a gift from the government - is available to all expectant mothers.
It contains bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress.
With the mattress in the bottom, the box becomes a baby’s first bed. Many children, from all social backgrounds, have their first naps within the safety of the box’s four cardboard walls.
Mothers have a choice between taking the box, or a cash grant, currently set at 140 euros, but 95% opt for the box as it’s worth much more.
The tradition dates back to 1938. To begin with, the scheme was only available to families on low incomes, but that changed in 1949.
Socialism at work.
I would rather my tax money pay for this than drone missiles.
i may not be cute or smart or funny but at least im not a mass murderer
“this leaves men confused and unable to pigeonhole you. What they are forced to do instead is… take you seriously.”
do you ever come up with a story in your head and you’re like ‘OMG THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING THING IN THE HISTORY OF EVER I THINK I’LL WRITE THIS’
but then you don’t know how to write and its just
Imagine if writers spoke about other people’s professions the way other people speak about writing.
Or if artists spoke to other people about their professions the way other people speak to artists about theirs:
“Oh, you’re a carpenter? Would you be interested in building me a house? I can’t really pay you or anything, but it’d be great exposure.”
“god, i can’t pay you to do this” -canned laughter- “but you love your job right? this will be great for your portfolio~”
“oh my god, if i paid you $50 bucks to do this full body X-Ray scan could you do it for me? that’s pretty good money, right?”
“you should redesign your hometown! it’ll be great!”
“a surgeon? hahahaha, that’s funny.” -leans in- “what is your /real/ job?”
“being an architect is not a realistic career path, son.” -patronising smile- “you have to consider how much you’re willing to risk.”
What explains the virulence of victim-blaming in sexual-assault cases? Perhaps one clue can be found in an often-cited study of male college students. This study found that one in twelve men admitted to having committed acts that met the legal definition of rape. However, 88 percent of men whose actions came under the legal definition of rape were adamant that their behavior did not constitute rape. This could be a result of confusion about what constitutes rape. This confusion is real in an era when the majority of boys and men are “educated” about sex through pornography, where it is normal in “non-violent” videos to see men treating women with incredible brutality and callousness. But the fact that so many men had committed rape also speaks to the reality of how pervasive the problem is—and how many “average” guys have motivation to ignore it.
