“My cemetery is in Key Biscane. It’s one of the prettiest in the world. Lovely trees, the sky is blue, the birds… The one in Los Copa is really shit. What a pain in the ass you are. It’s true- you’re not young and you’re not new and you do make people laugh. And me? I’m still with you because you make me laugh. So you know what I’ve got to do? I’ve got to sell my plot in Key Biscane so I can get one next to you in that shithole, Los Copa, so I never miss a laugh.”
Being a nice person is so fun
Waiter messes something up? You can see the relief on their faces when you don’t scream and swear at them about it
Extra tickets at an arcade/prize place? Watch a little kid’s face light up when you give them a bunch of tickets
There are too many assholes in this world. Be a nice person.
So apparently iCloud was hacked and pretty much every female celebrity’s nudes were leaked. I’d like to remind my followers not to post them, because they’re supposed to be private, and just because some asshole leaked them doesn’t mean you should make it worse by spreading them around.
I’ve seen a lot of people being annoyed about twelve refusing to take Journey on as a companion because she’s a soldier, but here’s how I see it:
- Yes, the doctor has had soldier (or ex-soldier) allies before but he’s always made it clear that he’s not at all fond of military tactics, even if he often has to accept that they’re sometimes necessary.
- He’s not saying that he’s never had soldiers travel with him, he just doesn’t want them now. New face, new rules.
- This doctor is afraid of himself and of the darkness within. At the end of the episode he is called a ‘good dalek,’ having earlier stated the daleks to be the best soldiers in the universe. He doesn’t want to give the ‘dalek’ side of himself any unnecessary fuel, and having a soldier for a companion might make him even more war-like.
- In both ‘Deep Breath’ and ‘Into the Dalek,’ the doctor refers to emotion in tactical terms. When Clara has just faced half-faced man he exclaims of her success "five foot one and crying, you never stood a chance." In ‘Into the Dalek’ he says "dry your eyes, Journey Blue. Crying’s for civilians; it’s how we communicate with you lot." If he wasn’t aware of the fact he himself is one of ‘you lot’ he certainly is at the end. He needs Clara or someone like her (someone who doesn’t see life and death in terms of ‘victory’ and ‘collateral damage’) to act as his moral and emotional compass when he is at his most unstable.
- This is a doctor who has been forced by a regeneration which should never have been to suddenly shift from ‘the man who forgets’ to ‘the man who wishes he could remember.’ He’s trying to get a hold of who he really is, and to live up to the promise of his chosen name. He desperately wants to be a civilian- a doctor- but knows that he is currently uncertain and suggestible; this is why he knows it’s not a good idea to be suddenly in the company of a soldier (though being in the company of a teacher is a good thing).
In Danny Pink we have a soldier turned teacher who cries and is soon going to be part of the doctor’s life, whether he wants him to be or not. This is going to be an interesting one.
He was using irony. It’s a literary device. You sell books. What is wrong with you.
Tech journalist Glenn Fleishman, addressing Amazon’s drastic misquoting of George Orwell to try and rally support for its anti-author, anti-publisher, and ultimately anti-reader “Readers United”. (x)
Remember kids: Amazon, which once arbitrarily removed copies of 1984 from its patrons’ Kindles, thinks George Orwell would support megacorporations and their efforts to coerce individuals into obedience, through the withholding of the written word (and the occasional removal of it from your library, even if you paid for it).
Amazon is also preventing the preorder of certain Marvel films, including Captain America 2, due to a dispute with Disney.
Remember this. It is important.
Also remember he doesn’t have an issue with putting weapons of war on the streets of other countries.
While we were sleeping, the police state came to America and made itself comfortable
Hi. Excuse me.
While I’m sure this has already been corrected in other posts, I’d like to say a few words.
These pictures are from when the Boston Marathon bomber was in a Watertown neighborhood. Specifically, mine. I took pictures identical to it out my bedroom window while this was happening. SWAT was there protecting us because there was a literal mass-murdered hiding in our neighborhood, equipped with bombs and other weapons. It was the most terrifying 24 hours of my life so far and while I don’t like to relive it, I did feel safer knowing the police and SWAT was doing everything they could to protect my neighbors, my friends and I.
The officers I spoke to were polite and unobtrusive. They even got groceries for some families who had small children while we were in lockdown. They were organized and professional. I am extremely grateful for their service.
These are NOT pictures of a police state.
Please do a little research before making a post like this.
Research is important
Groceries are important, too.
