You know how we always joke about how Pluto and the Doctor would be friends, because time travel? Pluto’s entire job is to protect the gates of time from anyone passing through them without permission.

They wouldn’t be friends.

They would be mortal enemies.

I’ve seen a few crossovers and they mostly had them as buddies, but THIS? This is beautiful and makes so much sense.

What I’d personally love to see in addition to this is freshly post-destruction-of-Silver-Millennium Pluto and freshly post-Time-War/destruction-of-Gallifrey Doctor (I’ll take Eight or Nine, both would be amazing) interacting, perhaps bonding even - or in this antagonistic variant, coming to an understanding. Perhaps discussing just how much of a hand each of them had in the ultimate doom of their people and cultures and worlds. (More like kill me now.)

I HAVE A WHOLE THING ABOUT THIS SOMEWHERE

AND IT IS EXACTLY THAT

YOU CAN’T SAY THAT AND NOT SHARE.

The film is a newer, gorier version of the classic 1910 tale, and has A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Robert Englund playing the Phantom. Christine Day is a young Broadway singer in New York City auditioning for a show, who comes across an old piece of music written nearly 100 years before by an unknown musician named Erik Destler. Destler, it seems, had made a pact with the devil (maybe by accident) so the world would love his music. The catch was Erik’s face would be left horribly disfigured forever. Once Christine sings his music for an audition, she is hit with a sandbag. Thus follows a presumed flashback into the past roughly around 1881, where she was the star in the London Opera House. There, she is coached by a mysterious “Phantom” who will do anything to make his protégé a star, even if it means murder. — Wikipedia

Look, we have established definitions of what women are attracted to.  These are tried-and-true models that are absolutely guaranteed to make women receptive to being fucked while also making men feel powerful.  They’re easy to make and we surely churn out enough of them that you should be satisfied.

If you keep finding the wrong things attractive and finding stuff sexy without permission and taking the stuff we made for ourselves and getting off on it without our approval, that makes us really uncomfortable.  You’re implying that we’re doing our job badly and accidentally manufacturing lady-stuff when we’re actually working very hard to make the best first-class man-stuff.

Until you’re into the things we say adult women like, by definition you’re not an adult woman, so we will continue to shame you for your childishness until you behave.

-what I hear when the entertainment industry talks about slash

I feel like this is best illustrated by Supernatural, which may have originally been intended to be marketed to dudes.

'Yes, let us take these two extremely attractive gentlemen, have them take off their shirts a lot, and shed single manly tears.  STRAIGHT DUDES WILL BE ALL ABOUT THIS.'

Ailech, or the Grianán of Aileach, (sun palace) was the caput, or principal royal seat of the early medieval Northern Úi Neill kings of Cenel nEogain, until they moved their headquarters to Tulach Oc in the kingdom of Airgialla at the beginning of the eleventh century. The place-name Ailech was also used as the distinguishing sobriquet of the Northern Úi Neill dynasty. Ailech is popularly identified as a large multi-period fortification situated on Greenan Mountain at the southern end of the Inishowen Peninsula, Co. Donegal.

3 years in Rikers Island, 2 in solitary confinement, this high school student, NEVER CHARGED, gets released

16-year-old high school sophomore Kalief Browder, of the Bronx, spent nearly three years locked up at the Rikers Jail after he says he was falsely accused of stealing a backpack.  Amazingly, Browder never pleaded guilty, actually refused to plead guilty and requested a trial, even when pressured, but was never convicted and was only offered plea deals while the trial was repeatedly delayed.

Near the end of his time in jail, the judge “offered” to sentence him to time served if a guilty plea was entered, and warned him he could face 15 years in prison if convicted, but Browder still refused to accept the deal.  The only reason Browder was finally released was because his case was dismissed, but the damage had been done.

Browder, a high school student, spent an unbelievable 800 days, or over 2 years, in solitary confinement, which is a common juvenile imprisonment practice that the New York Department of Corrections has now banned after several investigations.

How does a teen end up in jail for 3 years, of which 2 years was spent in solitary confinement, and never be charged with a crime?

Browder’s case highlights several broken mechanisms in the New York legal system that feeds itself to civil liberty abuses on our youth.

  1. The 6th amendment gives us a right to a speedy trial, but in New York they have a “Ready Rule”.  The “Ready Rule” allows the courts to postpone trial dates by offering continuances. The system may give a continuance for 1 week, but logistically it may be 1 month before the trial actually comes to fruition and the still not convicted civilian only gets “credit” for the 1 week, not the actual time they have served.  In Browder’s case, he was given an absolutely ridiculous number of continuances initiated by the prosecution which left him locked up because he could not afford the $3000 bail.
  2. Browder was a high school student and juveniles are supposed to continue their education while behind bars .. except for juveniles that are in solitary confinement.  Guards would place juveniles in solitary and the schooling would stop relinquishing any educational support.
  3. While in solitary, Browder says that guards would routinely refuse to give him his meals.  Hunger is a common complaint by teens that are locked up because of the 12-hour stretch between dinner and breakfast.  Guards would use starve tactics at their discretion for punishment or their own personal enjoyment.  Browder says the worst of his starvations lasted for 4 meals in a row, meaning he was denied breakfast, lunch, dinner and another breakfast.
  4. As it stands, the courts place people in these situations and it is human nature for some to strike a plea deal just to get out of jail.  But Browder did not play into their game and take a plea deal, but maintained his innocence and requested a trial which came at a snail’s pace. This leads one to believe that the courts use this a planned tactic or procedure to play on human nature all in the name of getting convictions.
  5. The issues of using a Public Defender have long been recorded across the country.  In New York, court appointed lawyers make $75 a case.  In order to make money, that PD has to take on huge caseloads which leads to other problems.  Browder, although locked up for nearly three years in Rikers, where his PD was located everyday, never once was visited by his PD or had anyone to advocate his case for him.  This shows a reckless disregard which leads to a vicious cycle of apathy that often leads innocent people to copping pleas or getting longer sentences.

He was charged, but never convicted. Per the newyorker:

The next day, he was led into a courtroom, where he learned that he had been charged with robbery, grand larceny, and assault. 

Not trying to imply that in any way makes this better. It’s horrifying from top to bottom.

from various reddit threads

at dinner last night, a coworker was talking about hanging out with his white friends and getting fed up with the racist jokes, and asked them to tell a white people joke.  nobody had any, so he googled and found these. after a few of them, people were a lot less comfortable.

white folks, next time you hear a racist joke, maybe lead with one of these in response.  tag this “I’m white” when you reblog it, if you are.

Have a leather wallet? A leather purse? Leather needs cleaning and oiling, and while mink oil will keep your leather looking spiffy and lasting longer, there are other oils out there that can help in a more…spiritual level. 

Got a fav money oil? Rub some of that on your wallet! 

Want to make sure your purse doesn’t get lost or stolen, some good luck oil and a dab of protection oil goes a long way. 

In fact the possibilities are endless. Leather shoes…leather jackets…all the lovely oils…oh yesssss.

I can never stop posting this. The narrow minded bible fanatics that just look at one small thing in the bible then feed the world with their hate over it. At the same time they ignore all the other silly laws made by man they claimed were made by god. These gif’s say it all.

REBLOG EVERY TIME

Potus get it

Yep. Never won’t reblog. Even tho it is missing the end all mic drop wherein he schools her on sitting when the President stands.
