Say, the supposed causality between vaccinations and autism has been debunked now by both the doctor who originated the claim and by Penn and Teller’s Bullshit tv program. I’d say that’s definitive.
The day I decided to become a hockey fan was the day I officially:
a. gave up on sanity
b. signed my soul over to the Devil
c. forfeited a social life
d. became resigned to a premature heart condition
e. got used to crying over a piece of rubber
f. all of the above
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, no one honestly gives a flying f**k when you became a fan of your respective team. If they do, then they’re probably concerned with their own fandom origin date (or their penis size or something else dumb like that).
Congrats, you’ve been here since birth.
Congrats, you’ve been here for the past decade.
Congrats, you’ve been here since the last Cup win.
Congrats, you’re been here since yesterday.
Stop trying to make other fans feel bad about when they started supporting a team. A player can’t tell a bandwagoner from a diehard when they’re on the ice. Our cheers all sound the same to them.
A roar. An all-consuming, ear-splitting roar.
Just play nice guys. We all love the same sport.
do you mean: all my meaningful relationships
Edit to clarify: It’s how I met my wife.
In the 101 top-grossing family films…from 1990 to 2004, of the over 4,000 characters in these films, 75% overall were male, 83% of characters in crowds were male, 83% of narrators were male, and 72% of speaking were male. When the American Psychological Association commented on this research, they said, ‘This gross under-representation of women or girls in films with family-friendly content reflects a missed opportunity to present a broad spectrum of girls and women in roles that are non-sexualised.’

Bringing this back as people have started reblogging this again and EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW THIS.
Octopus have no real bones in their body, except for a tough beak made from chitin, so they can squeeze into small places when fleeing predators. They’re highly intelligent creatures and have shown to demonstrate observational learning, they’re known for escaping from their aquarium enclosures and occasionally breaking into others for a snack.
Also, captive octopi occasionally show affection to their caretakers after an extended absence.
They’re boneless puppies! <3_<3
WHAT THE FUUUUUUCKKK
Am I odd in that I find octy up there kinda cute (in the huggable sense)?
Fantastic. Nightmare fuel
So, I paint my nails pretty regularly these days. I also work as a barista/cashier pretty regularly these days. A few weeks back, I had a customer come in, a fairly typical, sheltered, suburban soccer mom, and she ordered a latte from me. She saw my brightly colored nails and said, “Wow, you’re so brave! My son asked me about painting his nails, and if it’s okay for boys to do that. Now I’ll tell him there’s a cool guy who does it too!” It was a nice moment, very cute.
Then, last week, she came in again, and said, “Hey, I’m so glad you’re here! I want you to meet someone!” She then brings her son forward, and says, “Okay sweetie, show him what you did!” And he throws his hands up, showing off his bright, sparkling blue nails. He shows them off, and I show mine off to him. He smiles. We fist bump.
Guys, I’ve only wanted to cry once at work before, and that was when someone ordered a large dry soy cappuccino on ice.
This time, though. This was a good cry.
I cried a little….
[W]hen we launch in a territory the Bittorrent traffic drops as the Netflix traffic grows. So I think people do want a great experience and they want access – people are mostly honest. The best way to combat piracy isn’t legislatively or criminally but by giving good options. One of the side effects of growth of content is an expectation to have access to it. You can’t use the internet as a marketing vehicle and then not as a delivery vehicle.
Look, someone who gets it.
thank you. And reasonable prices. Netflix is much more reasonable for me to afford than paying $15 to see a 90 minute movie I will probably hate.
