sometimes I forget that Americans have to pay for university upfront like what the fuck is that are u guys ok
No we’re not okay.
We’re not okay at all.
i was a wimp before tumblr
now i’m a jerk and everybody loves me
The craziest part is that they installed cameras… TO WATCH THE POLICE
That ain’t right
fucking racist bullshit #andyetwemakingshitup
It’s late and I know you’re busy but too many of you are going through the same thing and I need to remind you of a few things. Things that you’re going to carry into 2014 and beyond. I’m not interested in giving you a choice here. You’ll just have to do as I say. Yeah, I said it.
Item One: Stop…
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag - I hope you find your dream.
Who’s driving the car?
The Spirit of Jazz and the Knowledge of Impending Racism
What if Millennials’ aversion to car-buying isn’t a temporary side effect of the recession, but part of a permanent generational shift in tastes and spending habits? It’s a question that applies not only to cars, but to several other traditional categories of big spending—most notably, housing. And its answer has large implications for the future shape of the economy—and for the speed of recovery.

It’s safe to say that a decent number of Tumblr users are a part of the Millennial generation. So, tell us: Do you own a car or house? If not, why?
IT’S BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO DISPOSABLE INCOME YOU THUNDERING IDIOTS. Fucking preference has nothing to do with it. 50% of college graduates have no job! They all have the most student loan debt ever! What are you asking this question for?!
Also: housing is a good bit more expensive now.
My parents got a 15-year mortgage on a new house in the mid-70s. The house was $32,000. Average home price in that area now? $190,000.
So, home prices went up. Food prices went up. Health care prices went WAY UP. Rent prices went up. Higher education went up so damn high that some of us forgo that all together. Energy prices went up. Car prices went up.
Prices of prices went up.
We also pay cell phone bills, internet bills, data plans, text plans, online subscriptions, cable/satellite tv, netflix, DVR subscriptions — bills that didn’t even exist 30-40 years ago. We also use computers and smartphones and microwaves and other consumer electronics that didn’t exist 20-50 years ago.
We need medications and doctors and contact lenses and tampons and maxi pads and other things that cost money just to be alive and keep us healthy.
Most of us can’t afford to:
- Get married and have a “Traditional” big wedding
- Buy a house
- Buy a new car
- PLAN to have children
- Take two, consecutive weeks of vacation.
Jobs that paid 50k in the late 1990s now pay between 30-35. Interest rates that favor consumers have gone down.
So I say, no. We are not choosing not to buy homes. We’re not choosing to take the bus in cities where there’s no good public transit. WE ARE NOT CHOOSING TO LIVE WHAT SOCIETY DEEMS AS AN UNDESIRABLE LIFESTYLE.
Don’t even get me started on the fact that these two people in the picture are young white hipsters. Young black and brown folks have been forgoing homeownership and buying new cars for decades, this shit isn’t new, pal. You’re just acting like this shit is new because it’s hitting white folks.
anyway, my point is: We are fucking broke.
"Hey. Hey, guys. I know the economy being fucked up is totally our fault, but what if we tell people the next generation…wants to be poor?”
Cartoon Network 20th Anniversary Video Tribute
WATCHES MY LIFE FLASH BEFORE MY EYES
I watched like all but 2 of these, holy shit.
same here ^ oh god
WHERE IS SAMURAI JACK!?
The best 5 min & 2 sec flashback of my life…
i stopped watching cartoon network after the 3:23 mark.
I really want to know what question was asked that made them look like this
Jane Espenson (from interview with Advocate.com)\
I dunno how many which ways this needs to be said
I literally need this all to be over
"White woman does terrible rendition of Japanese fashion and does it better than actual Japanese people" like literally title it what you mean and what the article is about omfg
Also I would like to note that Kyary is not known for being “ridiculous” she’s known for bright, cute styles and being very fun and quirky. I feel like they’re trying to say” The Asian Lady Gaga isn’t as crazy as the real Lady Gaga, but at least she tried right? Lol!”
fuck outta here
And then that “definition” of kawaii like who wrote this? a 2006 naruto die hard? wtf. “kawaii’d out of her mind” “kawaii was the type of cute Lady Gaga was bringing with this outfit” what
so many things wrong here i cannot I CANNOT
reading this makes me fucking pissed man
back when I just saw pics of lady gaga with the makeup on I was like “pff this is so fucking stupid” but then I read this and I can’t understand how this was actually written
like wow this is terrible
also just wanted to point out LGG’s makeup artist made a classic mistake that most 12 year olds make when they’re drawing anime for the first time: the eye shines are mirrored in both directions, causing her to look hilariously anime-crosseyed
im pretty sure dogs think exclusively in exclamation points and question marks
Oversimplification is, perhaps, one of the things that I struggle with the most within movements that I would otherwise support/identify with.
- Gay marriage is wonderful for anyone who wants to get gay married. But most of the messaging ignores other issues, silences voices within the queer community, and utilizes harmful stereotypes.
- Sex positivity is amazing and I think anyone who wants to use their bodes to get pleasure how they want and when they want is fabulous. But sometimes the “yay sex!” message seems to have no room for survivors of sexual assault, for criticism of problematic kinks or (certain kinds of) porn, or for asexuality.
- Body love and body positivity is so needed and so critical and I am so thrilled when people are able to show others their self-love and encourage other people to find it. But, we do live in a society that places so much emphasis on outward appearance and by also emphasizing that, it can hurt/be problematic for some people, and that is often times unacknowledged.
- Feminism is so needed for a million different reasons and it’s important that women’s voices are respected and heard. But, it cannot just “simplify” itself to be about “all women” and really just ignore the struggles that women face who are part of groups that are oppressed in many ways.
