totalitarian dystopian future lit is like “what if the government got so powerful that all the bad stuff that’s already happening ALSO HAPPENED TO WHITE PEOPLE?”
alien invasion movies too
Fun little trick I learned in therapy: validation. When someone is upset, don’t try to fix the problem, point out the cause, or tell them it could be worse. Just validate their emotions. Be like, ‘shit yeah man, that sucks. I’m sorry you’re going through that. I’m here for you.’ That’s literally all you have to do to make them feel better. Thank you and goodnight.

I don’t care who the fuck you are, or what you’re doing. You can take 3 seconds to reblog this.
I miss you..That last comment broke my heart..
we had a great time. i will remember you forever.
i’m really sorry for having to make this post again…but i have literally no money left and very little food. and on top of that, i need to find a way to get myself and my belongings to the seattle area. so im also fundraising money to buy a plane (or train) ticket there.
my name is noraa and im a queer trans femme currently living in a very unstable living situation in new york which has been extremely bad for my mental health and well-being. i’m trying to move to the seattle area for a more permanent living situation, but at the moment i have no way to do that money-wise.
and in addition to all that, i need to continue being able to afford my monthly HRT (estrogen and testosterone blockers) which is really, really essential to my mental health. (sorry the paypal link only mentions HRT, i recycled it from the last time i needed help)
if you can afford to give anything at all, or just signal boost, i would appreciate it beyond words and it would help me so so so much. thank you.
please help my partner. and signal boost if you can.
ok this annoys the crap out of me, firstly the font in question costs a fortune, secondly no link to something that can change a persons life as it did mine, so here lemme fix both of those:
Open Source Dyslexia is a FREE font that is designed in a similar fashion as in weighting the letters, it is also being constantly updated, yer welcome
Hi for all of my disability friends, please bookmark opendyslexic this is a really great project! Tell your friends c:
As close as you will ever be to a nuclear explosion
THIS IS FUCKING TERRIFYING
No thank you.
The columns of smoke in the foreground are telephone poles boiling
This is way cooler to look at than it should be
Science side of Tumblr would like to add:
Heat is generally transmitted in 3 forms: conduction, convection, radiation.
The fact that the telephone poles and wires are boiling away well before the shockwave hits them indicates that the heat from the explosion has not reached them by convection (much slower than the speed of sound) or by conduction (at best, comparable to the speed of sound), but purely by radiation. In other words: the explosion is bright enough to boil everything.
reblogging again for what engineer—cat said
A new service is angling to help out women worried about how their rejection will be handled by overly-aggressive gentleman callers. It’s called the Feminist Phone Intervention, and it’s a brilliantly simple trick for socially active.
It works like this: The next time you give a man your number to get him to leave you alone, use this one: (669) 221-6251, courtesy of the folks over Feminist Intervention. When someone calls that number, they’ll reach a computer-recorded message of a bell hooks quotation — so you can “protect your privacy while dropping some feminist knowledge when your unwanted ‘suitor’ calls or texts,” the website explains. It works for texts, too.
so useful. spread this shit like wildfire
We shouldn’t need this, but I’m glad we have it
Have you ever heard anyone say ‘easier done than said’ ?
So, one day my coworker said “is anything easier done than said” and I let him pontificate about this for a while and then I said to him, “silence” and that blew his mind.
