my favourite thing to do is watch people completely own homophobics on facebook
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.
She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”
It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down!
Wow okay I love this
Bravo. Now let’s talk about how mental illness is never being able to put the glass down, or is having to hold it with a broken fuckin’ hand.
While people are giving you weird looks and condescending lectures about how if you would just put the glass down you’d be fine and they don’t get why you refuse to put it down, no matter how many times you try to tell them you CAN’T.
And while we’re at it let’s talk about how the glasses range from a shot glass with a splash of water in it for rich white cishet men, to the two massive 32-oz Big Gulps full to the brim a poor queer TWoC is stuck holding.
Like it’s kinda hard to “put down the glass” when what it’s full of is the fact that rent is due tomorrow and you have no idea how you’re going to come up with the last $50 for it, or the insurance company has denied the claim for the meds that keep you sane and now you have to pay out of pocket until you can call your doctor and hopefully get him to help argue with the insurance company, or your hours have just been cut AGAIN but they still expect your availability to remain completely open so you could get fired if you try to get a second job, or your boss has started making really creepy comments but you know they’ll come up with some flimsy excuse to fire you if you make a fuss about it or or or…
Oh and then there’s the whole thing where the rest of society judges the everloving fuck out of a lot of people for finding ways to put the glass down that they don’t approve of, like “wasting” money on movie tickets, or buying junk food, or using part of a windfall to buy yourself something nice, or spending money to get your nails done, etc.
"As early in the evening as you can…" Like everyone’s stressors stop at the front door when they get home from their 9-5 office job.
It’s funny. I mean I’m sure this works great for some people, but… Pithy little “life lessons” like this never seem to hold up when faced with anything more than smugly superior back-patting…
i spent an hour planning this wedding and i actually shed a tear when it was over bc i remember raising both of them like they were literally just born yesterday and now they’re getting married and then my mom made me get off the game because she’s concerned for my well-being
THE GUY DIED OF OLD AGE TODAY I ACTUALLY CRIED AND MY MOM CONFISCATED THE GAME SO NO MORE SIMS FOR LIKE A WEEK
The swinging pendulum of sexism arrives! Ladies, Men can get raped too. Remember that.
Just to put some perspective in this for those people who may be confused at how a guy can get a boner but not really be sexually charged, so to speak…
Ladies, you know how your nipples get hard for seemingly no reason (sans stepping into a cold room anyway)? You go to put on a shirt and your nipples are poking out like they haven’t seen daylight in over 40 years? Or you brush them up against something and BAMMO, nipple town? Or someone slaps you in the tits and they’re standing full mister?
You get where I’m going with this? Your sexual organs are built to respond to stimulus, be it one you personally find sexually gratifying or not. Saying a dude who gets a boner while he’s otherwise not consenting to sex is lying about the fact would be like saying any girl who gets wet while getting raped is actually enjoying it/wants it.
so… you know… dont be stupid about this people. guys can get raped too and girls can most definitely be the fuckin perps.
People who think men don’t get raped are just as bad as the people who think men can’t control their urges to rape women. It happens less often, but it still happens, and it’s just as traumatizing for the male victim. You can’t just disregard a victim based on their gender.
Can we also include that females can rape other females and males can rape other males too?
All of the above.

my mother and sister went to the Crayola factory and brought this home for me. they know me so well ~
See this Thorin to my right? This is Hizsi, here on tumblr. We were told that Richard mentioned this cosplay in an interview but since I am still on the road and Hizsi is notoriously bad at finding things (talk about cosplaying the right character…! ;D) we were hoping one of you could point us in the right direction.
Also: PLEASE signal boost this because I.fucked up majorly. As you can see in the second picture, Richard had already moved away after posing because I was too shaky to handle my phone (also I broke my arm a week ago…)
I hope that somebody out there got a good shot of the both of them :3
Thanks in advance!
Look at my awesome cosplay partners and friends! It was such a great time with them and I will never forget this day! <3
LOOK AT ALL THE EMOTIONS
I literally didnt recognize her
i only knew it was her because of the start of the shhh shhh and the fascinating gif…
It’s almost like the character makes a difference. It’s almost like Bella Swan is a terribly written and completely flat character and no actress could have believably put emotion into her portrayal with the lines and motivations they were given. It’s almost like when she’s given a decent character she can give a great performance. IT’S ALMOST LIKE SHE’S AN ACTRESS.
so just found this. thought I’d leave it here.
MARVEL FANS, BOW BEFORE YOUR KING.
And he’d be a better father than Odin.
All hail the All-Father. We tremble before his magnificence.
