your honor may i approach the bench? thank you. your honor i would like to request that all the weird bro sex talk about poor dead possessed april be stricken from the record on the basis that shit like that would never come out of castiel’s mouth in a million goddamn fucking years
This has to be one of the coolest and sweetest anon’s I’ve ever gotten! So first of all thank you!
I’ve never really been able to wrap my head around that whole mentality, even when I was “young and dumb” so to speak. If for some reason I ever have disliked a gf/wife, it’s because I had a proper reason to. But that’s been really really REALLY rare. I swear in my whole life it’s been like 2 or 3 women lol These poor chicks always get a bad wrap just because they get to smooch and cuddle our favorite guys and that sucks! I guess a lot of people dislike the S.O’s because they either A.) Ruin their ship or B.) Make their fave guys seem that much more unattainable. We’ve all gotta be honest with ourselves though y’know? We aren’t gonna date these guys, no matter how many stars, wells, candles, and eyelashes we wish on.
And when it comes to these four, I mean, at least from what I’ve seen, they all look pretty happy together and I’ve heard plenty of how Sarah G is a very nice and lovely person (she’d pretty much have to be to be able to bag the sunshine pup of Ireland eh?) I don’t really know much about Sarah W, but I have no doubts in my mind that she’s just as lovely. Dean is a fantastic and sweet and genuine guy, I highly doubt he’d date anyone that was an arrogant bitch. He ain’t got time for that prissy shit please~ I didn’t even realize either of these girls were getting hate! And as a huge Dean fan I take personal offense to that! lol
I just think they’re really cute and are totally my OT4 right now regardless of how aggressively I ship Aidean. They’re my fun fantasy ship, but with the Sarah’s thrown in they turn into my adorable reality ships. I mean, how can you not?! These guys are bros for life now first of all. Joined at the hip and all that (especially right now.) And then you’ve got these gorgeous gf’s of theirs that are somehow miraculously BOTH named Sarah and it’s a dumb coincidence but it’s hilarious and cute. And then not to mention the fact that (and this is the dumb shipper fangirl in me so forgive) Aidan’s Sarah is shorter than him and Dean’s Sarah is taller than him. I mean, I guess they have a type eh? *wink* LOL And I just imagine both of the girls laughing at how dumb their boyfs are when they’re being gay for each other and all these sorts of silly domestic scenarios I run through my mind.
OK WOW THIS GOT A LOT LONGER THAN I INTENDED IT TO I’M SORRY.
TL;DR people are dumb and waste their time hating on dumb things. Dean, Aidan, & Sarahx2 are cute as pie and I need a double wedding to happen soon.
Amsterdam is turning rainbow for a visit of the Russian president Putin. The council of the city of Amsterdam has decided to hang out the gay pride flag on all council owned buildings and offices, in protest to Russia’s new anti-gay law.
pretty sure Amsterdam is now the sass capital of the world
there are nice americans
there are rude americans
there are nice brits
there are rude brits
there are nice canadians
there’s justin bieber
Every year on Canadian Thanksgiving, we perform a ritual to purge ourselves of our rudeness, Bieber absorbs it all. He was never meant to escape, we are sorry.
During the Bubonic Plague, doctors wore these bird-like masks to avoid becoming sick. They would fill the beaks with spices and rose petals, so they wouldn’t have to smell the rotting bodies.
A theory during the Bubonic Plague was that the plague was caused by evil spirits. To scare the spirits away, the masks were intentionally designed to be creepy.
Mission fucking accomplished
Okay so I love this but it doesn’t cover the half of why the design is awesome and actually borders on making sense.
It wasn’t just that they didn’t want to smell the infected and dead, they thought it was crucial to protecting themselves. They had no way of knowing about what actually caused the plague, and so one of the other theories was that the smell of the infected all by itself was evil and could transmit the plague. So not only would they fill their masks with aromatic herbs and flowers, they would also burn fires in public areas, so that the smell of the smoke would “clear the air”. This all related to the miasma theory of contagion, which was one of the major theories out there until the 19th century. And it makes sense, in a way. Plague victims smelled awful, and there’s a general correlation between horrible septic smells and getting horribly sick if you’re around what causes them for too long.
You can see now that we’ve got two different theories as to what caused the plague that were worked into the design. That’s because the whole thing was an attempt by the doctors to cover as many bases as they could think of, and we’re still not done.
The glass eyepieces. They were either darkened or red, not something you generally want to have to contend with when examining patients. But the plague might be spread by eye contact via the evil eye, so best to ward that off too.
The illustration shows a doctor holding a stick. This was an examination tool, that helped the doctors keep some distance between themselves and the infected. They already had gloves on, but the extra level of separation was apparently deemed necessary. You could even take a pulse with it. Or keep people the fuck away from you, which was apparently a documented use.
Finally, the robe. It’s not just to look fancy, the cloth was waxed, as were all of the rest of their clothes. What’s one of the properties of wax? Water-based fluids aren’t absorbed by it. This was the closest you could get to a sterile, fully protecting garment back then. Because at least one person along the line was smart enough to think “Gee, I’d really rather not have the stuff coming out of those weeping sores anywhere on my person”.
So between all of these there’s a real sense that a lot of real thought was put into making sure the doctors were protected, even if they couldn’t exactly be sure from what. They worked with what information they had. And frankly, it’s a great design given what was available! You limit exposure to aspirated liquids, limit exposure to contaminated liquids already present, you limit contact with the infected. You also don’t give fleas any really good place to hop onto. That’s actually useful.
Beyond that, there were contracts the doctors would sign before they even got near a patient. They were to be under quarantine themselves, they wouldn’t treat patients without a custodian monitoring them and helping when something had to be physically contacted, and they would not treat non-plague patients for the duration. There was an actual system in place by the time the plague doctors really became a thing to make sure they didn’t infect anyone either.
These guys were the product of the scientific process at work, and the scientific process made a bitchin’ proto-hazmat suit. And containment protocols!

That last 3 frames before the loop. HOLY FUCK.
Do you SEE how young and utterly unprepared for this he is?
This is the boy Mrs Hudson sees, the teen Mycroft can’t help but be frustrated by, and the man inside the machine John would die to protect.
Because Sherlock, in his way, is so very vulnerable, even if he never sees it. Or more, chooses to hide this vulnerability even from himself.
So very unprepared to deal with his own humanity.
His own emotions.
And right here, we can see that vulnerability, that emotion plainly and so obviously.
That last 3 frames?
They break my damn heart.
John is actually prepared to die for him. This is an experience unknown to Sherlock.
He has no idea what is going on here. That slight tilt of the eyebrow gives him away.
He has had to live most of his life without friends.
And for Sherlock to experience what friendship truly means, it is heartbreaking really.

I feel that Jesse and James are actually lesbian lovers
i love the fact that in their intros and disguises, Jessie almost ALWAYS assumes the masculine role and James almost ALWAYS assumes the feminine roll
i think it suits them
pokemon has been defying gender roles since 1996
why hasn’t everyone else caught up yet?
