someone is going to say “i have to go to the moon” in a bored, defeated tone one day
When an American hears the degrees in Celsius
When everyone else hears the degrees in Fahrenheit
oh my god
six word autobiography: “fuck goddamnit i fucked up so bad”
guys i specifically made that sentence seven words long so someone could comment “but thats seven words” and i could say “fuck i did it again i fucked up” so we could all have a good laugh but no one said it. yall fucked up. i fucked up because i assumed yall wouldnt fuck up. everythings fucked up
please read this excerpt from a linguistics textbook about a rich guy that decided to change the way english was spoken just because he liked it better, then continue to belligerently argue that it is “objectively incorrect” to refer to someone with singular they pronouns
"they isnt singular for a reason" no actually, nothing in language is ever for a reason ever, stop pretending this is in any way a valid or acceptable justification for enforcing gender binary language
also, aave. those excerpts of what english was like before lowth decided he was important enough to govern how a language “should” be spoken are very similar to aave today. those of us that dont speak aave are the ones that changed!

Any rumors that Misha Collins will officially not be returning for Supernatural’s 10th Season are DEBUNKED.
There is no evidence, nor has there been any word official or otherwise, that Castiel and/or Misha will not return next year. Nor would we expect to hear anything until after the current season finishes whether Castiel’s fate is at stake (for spoiler reasons).
Therefore, this rumor is Debunked. If we’ve missed something, feel free to let us know.
- This, as with any spoiler, is tentative and we will update it with any new information.
- However, we will ONLY change the prognosis on this post via official information.
- Misha and many of the cast and crew have NDAs and contracts they have to adhere to.
- The wording of this post, “There’s a big chance Misha may not be in Season 10. This is not even speculation anymore,” disproves itself; if there is only a chance of a thing happening then it is, by definition, still completely speculative. Especially given this follow up post, which specifically states that the OP will not give details on the subject. Since there is no other information to corroborate these claims, we consider these posts highly speculative and unreliable.
"To fight monsters, we created monsters of our own."
Pacific Rim, 2013
One of the greatest things about this quote (and this movie) is that it had all the potential in the world to spread the dark and terrible (and often truthful) idea that in order to fight the darkness, one must absorb some of that darkness. It was very prominent in The Dark Knight trilogy, especially as articulated by Harvey Dent: “You die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.”
Pacific Rim doesn’t do this. Mankind bands together for a true world war. There are already enough monsters coming for them; they do not need to become monstrous themselves. The monsters they create are not beasts but guards and armor to protect, not universally destroy. The jaegers rarely deliberately destroy massive structures (remember Gipsy Danger carefully stepping over a large walkway and nimbly navigating between buildings during the fight in Hong Kong). The pilots in the jaegers are very human and imperfect but are still heroes. They may have created monsters, but they did not become them.
Everyone and their mother has lauded this, but it bears repeating: in Pacific Rim, mankind’s power is not in its capacity for destruction or power or control or harnessing its deepest instincts but instead in its humanity—its ability to rebuild, to persevere, to empathize and to understand.
