I’m going to express frustration for a second. 

15,000 homes in Detroit have had their water shut off by the water company because they are so behind on their bills.  To me, this says that water is so expensive that people can’t pay their bills, and that the people at the water company are asses for shutting off water IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SUMMER.

Portland, Maine is on the edge of banning the proposed tar sands pipeline once and for all.  That’s not the end of the battle, because the pipeline would probably just go elsewhere, and there are still indigenous people in Canada suffering because of the greed surrounding oil, gas, and tar sands. But banning the pipeline in Portland would be a beginning.

And countless other issues.

And people on Facebook are worried about Market Basket.  I get that it’s close to home and we know people that work there, but it’s one chain store.  If Market Basket truly goes out, another grocery store will rise to fill its place.  Maybe even another chain grocery store.  Or even better, a (*gasp*) little mom and pop shop, and/or (the scandal!) a farmer’s market.

Seriously, there are bigger problems than who the head-honcho of a grocery store chain is. (Like the fact that people are more concerned about who the head-honco of a grocery store chain is than the implications of pollinator die-offs.)

I was just watching ABC News and they were talking about “Binge” watching TV Shows on Netflix and they explained

"Binge watching is defined as watching at least 3 episodes in one day."

Awww, how cute

I’ve finished entire seasons in a day…

Buffy Meme: [4/7] quotes -

So that’s it, huh? I remember the drill. One slayer dies, the next one’s called. I wonder who she is. Will you train her? Or will they send someone else? Buffy,  I… - Does it say how he’s gonna kill me? Do you think it’ll hurt? Don’t touch me! Were you even gonna tell me? I was hoping I wouldn’t have to, that there was some way around it. I… - I’ve got a way around it. I quit. It’s not that simple. I’m making it that simple. I quit! I resign! I-I’m fired! You can find someone else to stop The Master from taking over. I’m not sure that anyone else can. […] Giles, I’m sixteen years old. I don’t wanna die.

7 Things I Wish Parents Would Stop Teaching Their Children:

goddess-river:

  1. That nudity is inherently sexual
  2. That people should be judged for their personal decisions
  3. That yelling solves problems
  4. That they are too young to be talking about the things they’re already starting to ask questions about
  5. That age correlates to importance
  6. That interacting with someone of the opposite sex is inherently romantic
  7. That the default for someone is straight and cisgender

Imagine having braces during the apocalypse. no one can take your braces off. And you just have to accept that you’ll have braces forever.

i want a novel focused around a character with braces during the apocalypse and the entire plot of the story revolves around their search for an orthodontist who is still alive and they sort of accidentally save the world in the process

Titled: Brace for It.
