after you’ve been through like a string of fandoms and you’ve decided your favourite character/s for each one, there will come a day when you will list all your faves from each fandom side by side and look at them carefully and realise
You'd be surprised how many people start from fairly average or even low class conditions and actually become very wealthy...if you're of some worth you'll do fine in life. It seems that you're upset with what you have and just want more and more but are pissed off that other people have beaten you to it and are more successful than you
Nah it’s more like I’m angry that we live in a society where the potentiality of future wealth makes up for actual present day starvation and homelessness. I don’t want to become personally rich, I want the abolition of poverty.

#no but can you imagine if that was how you learned once a month you weren’t pregnant#by some dude singing songs about the victory of it#you wake up and he’s there and you are so happy#this dude becomes your favorite dude#but then you realize you haven’t seen your friend’s minstrel in a while#I mean everyone notices#like half the people are on the same cycle so for one week out of four your job is just flooded with fucking minstrels everywhere#the cacophony#but Mary over there is all alone#and she’s like my minstrel is late#but we all fucking know#her minstrel has gone off to find her a baby#a nine month journey he must make alone#and until he comes back there is no music in her life#what a glorious world this would be#I love the minstrels (@onionjuggler)
“I did this radio show and the deejay asks me, ‘What if you woke up tomorrow and you were beautiful?’
What do you mean ‘what if’?
He said, ‘What if you woke up and you were blonde and you had blue eyes and you were 5’11 and you weighed 100 pounds and you were beautiful? What would you do?’
And I said, ‘Well, I probably wouldn’t get up ‘cause I’d be too weak to stand.’
And I felt very sorry for him, ‘cause if that’s the only kind if person that you think is beautiful, you must not see very much beauty in the world.
And I think everybody is beautiful. And if you don’t think that I am beautiful, you are missing out. Because I am so beautiful.”—
Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex[…]Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. “Go ahead, shit on me, I don’t mind, I’m the Cool Girl.”
Men actually think this girl exists. Maybe they’re fooled because so many women are willing to pretend to be this girl. For a long time Cool Girl offended me. I used to see men — friends, coworkers, strangers — giddy over these awful pretender women, and I’d want to sit these men down and calmly say: You are not dating a woman, you are dating a woman who has been watching too many movies written by socially awkward men who like to believe this woman exists and might kiss them.
Why do all mra’s talk like they’re bullshitting an academic paper
this assertion is fundamentally erroneous, of course, and is merely a logical fallacy concocted by anti-male propagandists, as even the most churlish and base of individuals is cognizant to the truism that not all men

Okay, so up in the Balkans there’s this belief that anything left out under the full moon can become a vampire. Anything. All the things.
However, in the Balkans and I believe among certain Romani superstitions Pumpkins and Watermelons are particularly susceptable to vampirism. There are two ways to do it, one is by leaving them ungathered on the vine out under the full moon, and one is by having one and not eating it by midnight on Christmas. There’s also allegedly a third way that requires the watermelon or pumpkin to not rot for 2-3 years but the first two are the more accepted versions I believe.
You can recognize a vampiric plant by the way they ‘sweat blood’. As I understand it the insides of the plant convert to blood, and they become sentient, and roll around trying to cause mischief while making the noise brlbrlbrl, because they’re inherently evil and driven to do evil.
However they’re also fucking plants and are easily foiled by stairs so literally no one is scared of them they’re just ineffectual hostile plants AND I LOVE THEM.
This is beautiful. Pratchett menioned them in one of his books, and I’ve always wondered.
Watermelon vampires came up during my pathfinder game, and I couldn’t believe it that something so wonderful could exist.
