The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water.
There are a lot of diseases that don’t get the support they need because there aren’t a huge number of people who experience them, so it’s difficult to raise awareness, difficult to find investors, basically people don’t have the emotional connection they do with something that a huge number of people deal with and the pharmaceuticals to treat them aren’t as profitable. Like, a friend of mine was at an MS fundraiser and the grim joke used to try to lighten people’s spirits for feeling like they weren’t raising as much money as they wanted was “Let’s face it guys, we aren’t cancer”
The ice bucket challenge has made people donate something like ten times as much to ALS this year than previous years. I know people are concerned about wasting water, but you’ll do a lot more good on that front if you take a stand against bottled water and soft drinks, particularly from companies like Nestle, than getting mad at people trying to raise awareness for an illness that let’s be honest not a lot of people were very familiar with before this. Just be responsible, be aware, and try not to take your frustration out on the wrong people.

Okay, but holy shit, THIS IS UNREAL.
This is amazing, and that Pumpkin King makeup is a thing of unsettling beauty.

when old man luka was in high school, one of the best bullying techniques was to talk loudly about an outcast and then act confused when the outcast spoke up. “Excuse you? We were having a conversation here. Ugh, self important much?”
Then the giggling. Oh, the giggling.
Oh man, my mom had Stories about this shit. Her worst is probably the one where a girl loudly questioned who the father of my aunt (still in utero at the time) was. Gossipy bullies can be really shitty, and I think it’s partially their influence that made my mom the uncompromising brick wall of terror I remember her being in my formative years. Kids mistook her for friggin’ Chyna.
I remember one time we were at an orientation/open-house dinner for my junior high and she told me in front of a lot of kids and their parents “If anyone starts talking shit, just throw them into the lockers or something, the most those chickenshits in the front office will do is suspend you.” Incidentally I didn’t deal with a whole lot of assholes that year.

I wish more people would realize that there’s a difference between being a good character and being a good person.
i wasnt going to reblog but then
The ass tho
That’s.. actually incredible. Not the ass, I mean that’s good yes but, fuck yeah Hawkeye Initiative!
I’m just impressed someone can contort themselves into the stupid poses they put women in on the covers of comic books.
During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeatpred several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.
The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.
CHRIST HOW DID I MISS THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
What are you paying for? If it’s for an item that is physically being shipped to you, then by all means continue!
But if it is for digital art, please reconsider!
This means that paypal is expecting me to ship a physical item to you!
And the more times that I receive money for goods, and do not ship through them, the more it counts against me.
Too many and paypal can elect to hold my funds for thirty days every time I receive them, until it reevaluates my account.
Which means while the customer has their deserved art, I do not technically have money yet.
So PLEASE always send payment for digital art via SERVICES and not GOODS!
(you can get a refund if need be just as easily by selecting services as you can goods!)
Please read this!
Oh I didn’t knew this, this could be really useful to some of my followers too !
Anonymous said: grow the fuck up and get off of tumblr. Do something with you life. You're almost 30.
I have a full time job and I’m going to be married. I have been around the world, to South Korea, China, Japan, England, and various places in the United States. I have met celebrities, seen plays in Stratford, and have seen rare animals in their natural habitats, not in zoos. I have taught English and decided to quit, deciding my happiness was more important than a longterm job that was draining my life.
Tumblr was created by a man my age and pertains to interests I love. My adult sister who is married and has a daughter also uses tumblr. There is literally no reason for me not to use a website that allows me to share my interests with others.
If you believe that by aging I should somehow suddenly lose interest in all of the things I love, you’re sadly mistaken.
I’m not angry with you for sending me this misguided message.
I feel sorry for you for having such a bleak outlook on getting old.

Screw the pity party, have a drawing party instead.
This has made me laugh really loudly, twice.
when someone gets called out for saying something problematic & they try justifying it
When people forget that “problematic” doesn’t mean “definitely wrong”:
