In other news, racist people are still upholding a racist system. Wow. How shocking.

steve, bucky and sam going out for early-morning jogs. every time steve and bucky pass sam, they yell “ON YOUR LEFT” and “ON YOUR RIGHT” respectively. sam gets increasingly frustrated. but after a while, steve and bucky realise they haven’t passed sam again, and he’s nowhere to be seen. and they start to get worried, fearing the worst, until suddenly they hear a shout “ON YOUR ABOVE, ASSHOLES” as sam swoops overhead, leaving them behind

Sorry for low-tier quality, I just really wanted to hear what this would sound like. 

I love doing this to songs.  Low pitch to high pitch,  high pitch to low pitch, low pitch to lower, demonic summoning pitch, high pitch to helium balloon giggle fits.

I’m like ‘the Tea Party is racist’ and my friend is like ‘Kamau, you can’t call the Tea Party racist. They’re not all racist.’ And I was like, you know what, I don’t need the Tea Party to be 100% racist for me to feel perfectly fine calling them racist. I don’t need 100% racism in the group. It could be way less than 100%. 10% is plenty for me. If the Tea Party is 10% racist I feel comfortable labeling the whole group racist.

Let me explain how that works. If I offer you a shake, a milkshake. I say ‘would you like a milkshake?’ You go “yeah, sure I’d like a milkshake.” I go, ‘okay, here you go, but just so you know it’s 10% shit.’

Oh, now you suddenly you understand how it works. 10% is kinda a lot ain’t it. You go ‘uh oh, that’s too much shit in my shake.

Captain American’s military awards - 
Combat Infantryman Badge
Parachutist Badge
Purple Heart 
American Defense Service Medal
Presidential Unit Citation

The parachute badge made me laugh.


Plus his captain’s bars (on the epaulets), and the SSR pins (on the lapels).
(Also, can high-waisted slacks on men please make a comeback, because damn son.)

Also, note that the Purple Heart has an oak leaf, which means he’s been wounded several times.

"African-American children with autism are being diagnosed almost two years later than children of any other ethnic group [in the United States], holding up their treatment, and in turn, their quality of life, according to research.

When white children were misdiagnosed with autism they were usually told they had ADHD, but Mandell discovered that Black autistic children were told they had things like psychoses, mental retardation or selective mutism. This, along with the fear that Black parents have of reporting their child’s behavioral issues due to the fact that their children are removed from the home as a result more often, makes it hard for Black children with autism to get the treatment that they need."

my first diagnosis was a psychotic disorder btw

But lets keep pretending doctors know everything and never fuck up or hold prejudices that make the diagnoses they give wrong.

(via fatbodypolitics)

This happened to my brother and noooow I know why. Nobody even tried until he was twelve and then they kept trying to diagnose him as pre-psychotic and my mom was like “no” and then they just put him in special needs for a year because THAT’S PROBABLY WHAT HE NEEDS even though he’d already been diagnosed with Asperger’s.

Lemme take another moment to reiterate that racism =/= hurt feelings.

imagine if china, while they’re up on the moon, decides to knock down the US flag or whatever just to say ‘screw you’ and its like, what are we gonna do? spend a couple million just to fly some craft up to the moon and re-erect the flag? the whole scenario would be petty and that’s hilarious 

i have lived in america my entire life and i am 100% sure we would do exactly that

This Is Big: Scientists Just Found Earth’s First-Cousin

Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home. 
NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered. 
It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute. 
But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

I think this is the first time something has conveyed to me with true clarity just how bad period cramps are.
