“One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.” - Nikola Tesla
After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”
An 18-year-old American tennis player beat the No. 1-ranked French player Alize Cornet on her own soil in the second round of the French Open last week. Taylor Townsend, the teenager from Chicago, didn’t just make a powerful statement by beating the No. 22 seed in her debut main draw at a Grand Slam, however. Townsend’s victory sent a message to those who make assumptions or discriminate against female athletes on body image.
Shakespeare would seriously laugh so hard if he found out how seriously people take his works. Like, he would probably cry from laughing so hard if you told him that his plays were considered high-brow literature. “It’s all dick jokes and sword fights,” he’d say, “do they seriously tell my dick jokes to schoolchildren? And the kids aren’t allowed to laugh? Do the teachers know they’re telling dick jokes? Oh my god that’s fucking hilarious. Wait until I tell Anne.”

I HAVE SO MUCH RESPECT FOR THIS MAN.
'Ugh, I hope this one's nice'
I may or may not have referenced this joke when making a point today.
Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers—Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Can we talk about this? Can we talk about Steve utterly demolishing the way we romanticize the past? Can we talk about Cap’s refusal to buy into this meme that things have gone downhill since the 40s—since he actually lived through them?
I just really love Captain America ok guys?
steve rogers is so disappointed right now
Steve Rogers going on a campaign against the anti-vaccine movement: “Ladies and Gentlemen, can I show you a fucking Iron Lung.”
Steve Rogers going on Fox News and just laughing for an uncomfortably long time whenever one of the correspondents brings up some BS like, “But those were the days when women were women and men were men!”, “You mean the days when women shot guns and welded metal and amputated limbs on the battlefield and never got the appreciation they deserved? Those days?”
Steve Rogers not missing a fucking beat with today’s technology, in fact he’s delighted by it, and every time a fan asks to take a selfie with him he agrees excitedly and asks them to tag him on their instagram.
I want a superhero movie where the hero dies in the first ten minutes and the woman who was supposed to be the love interest puts on his costume and becomes an even better hero.
I want all of the advertising to be for the hero and none of the marketing to even allude to this death.
I recently went to a con with some friends and you could see these posters all over the expo grounds. I think I speak for everyone when I say that this is a job well done.
I disagree, I think costumes do equal consent. If a guy goes up to you while you’re wearing a Harley Quinn costume and makes you feel uncomfortable, you automatically have his consent to knock him right in the face with a hammer. I mean, he did willingly walk up to a kickass villain
I GOT REALLY PISSED AT FIRST
AND THEN I KEPT READING
Disneyworld needs to make a rollercoaster based off of the ride Yzma and Kronk take to the lair. When the ride starts, Yzma’s voice yells “pull the lever, Kronk!” and the ride starts to move backwards so she yells “wrong lever!” and it shoots you forward.
WHY IS THIS NOT HAPPENING?!
One time I ordered a coffee, and neglected to mention that I wanted it iced, because I don’t really like hot beverages. You know what I said to the barista? Nothing. It was my own fault I ordered wrong, simple as that
