Holy crap I remember these! I may actually even have the fries and the burger in one of the bins of my old toys.
Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.
I knew, the first time I heard that line, that Tumblr was going to be up in arms about it, no matter how good everything else was. Because that’s what Tumblr does. Good on Al for handling it well (though I’m not surprised). I wouldn’t be terribly shocked if he changes the line for the concert performances of the song.
if my boyfriend/husband/whoever did this 2 me i would respond via throwing up on him
I am fairly certain that my response would be to ask for a divorce once he is covered in vomit
“We have a problem of mismatched libidos. I have compiled evidence in an obsessive yet childishly passive-aggressive way.”
“As if it weren’t sufficiently clear we are incompatible, I’m going to respond to this by posting it on the internet in a similarly passive-aggressive way so that strangers can shame you, rather than attempting to be grown-up about it.”
God, I hope they’re divorced now.
when im a parent i won’t take my kid’s electronics when they get in trouble i’ll just take the charger so i can watch the fear in their eyes as they use it less and less while the battery slowly begins to run out
please never become a parent
Actually, the “I’ll take away the charger until you do X” method might be vaguely effective (so long as you keep track of which devices have complimentary chargers, of course). “You can’t charge your phone / DS / tablet / whatever until you clean your room / write this essay / other longer-term task.” But it also depends on the kid and their level of stubbornness, cleverness and dependence on the item.

If you succeed, it’s the opening reel of an action/thriller.
If you succeed, that’s how you know it’s a fantasy.
He’ll only pass his thesis if he dedicates the body of it to, “This is what I tried, and this is why it failed.”
i swear, sometimes i just want to quit this website because of how ignorant some people are
I think it’s an indication of my mental state that I keep reading Tumblr instead of, say, Talking Time, where the people are either sane or well-moderated. I should probably cut myself off for a while and do a Let’s Play or something.
Surprisingly, perfectionists are often procrastinators, as they can tend to think “I don’t have the right skills or resources to do this perfectly now, so I won’t do it at all.”
I’m going to argue that isn’t the slightest bit surprising.
I’m scared no one will love me.
I’m scared someone will love and then see me sad or angry or naked or tired and then stop.
This is an easy and common fear. Even when someone has clearly loved you for years, it’s easy to believe the slightest mis-step might still drive them away.
It’s also wrong. Love is better than that. And if someone doesn’t love sad, angry, naked tired you, they don’t love you. But someone will—and odds are good at least one person already does.
i relate so deeply to this video, this video is what it truly means to be “popular” on tumblr
PAWNEE’S CITIZENS ARE LITERALLY ANONS AND THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULD TURN OFF ANON
Before the internet, there were town hall meetings. And stupid people are eternal and inescapable.
parenting tip: talk to your kids about mental illness. tell them they might have a hard time. tell them they can ask for therapy and medication. tell them they aren’t alone. tell them if your family has a history of mental illnesses and which ones. just fucking talk to your kids and be there for them.
Dude, for real.
My family wasn’t even secretive about it, but I was in therapy for years and years, and family history wasn’t discussed.
It took a couple of my teenage nieces having serious issues for my dad to do an official phone call with everyone Explaining The Family History.
Given that I wasn’t made aware of the family history of back problems until I threw my back out, and my confession of depressive issues to my parents (years ago) was quietly swept under the rug and never spoken of again, I’m going to guess that any family history of mental health issues will need to start being recorded by me.
If you want to vague up your statements for the internet, please at least include the following information: 1) Is this good or bad, 2) Is this long-term or transitory, 3) Is it worthwhile/helpful to contact you regarding it. I mean, it’d be great if you’d actually say what’s on your mind, but if you don’t want to actually put that on the internet but still want to get news about your mental state out, the above details are critical.
Or, as I fear I don’t make clear enough: If you want to talk about a thing, anything really, you can call, text or email me. This applies to pretty much everyone who has that relevant contact information.

It’s so easy to say this to other people, and so hard to believe it for yourself, when everything in your life says that your happiness must ALWAYS be your lowest priority. (Your health or comfort can sometimes get higher priority, but only when they inconvenience others or actively prevent you from prioritizing other things.) “Be happy” tends to be somewhere at the bottom of the to-do list below “scrub the tile grout” and “find a job that pays better;” neither of which I’ve gotten to in a decade.
I grew up with DC (and still like it), but am loving Marvel pretty hard lately. I refuse to pick. If it’s quality, I like it.
As to your other question, I imagine some serious badassery would happen.
That basically happened in the DC One Million backstory: Superman’s descendent married a 5th-dimensional princess. Their children had a dozen new super-senses and powers like telekinetic vision.
