Thank god for the A.V. Club, the only media outlet that has outright called bullshit on this so far.
And another really important quote:
Rape is a tricky thing to use as character development, for either the victim or the rapist; doing it twice raises a lot of red flags. It assumes that rape between characters doesn’t fundamentally change the rest of their story—and it assumes that the difference between consent and rape is, to use the parlance, a “blurred line.”

I Never Learn
i let my good one down
i let my true love die
I’ll be writing down every url that reblogs in a notebook and I’m giving it to my homophobic father.
Smack him with it.
Throw it at his face
If people ever get you down, just remember people die. Eventually.
And you don’t even need to lift a finger.
NASA recently released imagery showing the deforestation of America …in just 34 years.
We are killing the Earth
How long are we going to keep closing our eyes to this? What are we going to do?
edit by your friendly neighborhood TV’s Michael Pawlak (from this original post):
The colour variation is likely due to seasonal changes and recolouring of the images from their raw digital form.
Below is an excerpt of the NASA Blue Marble animation (source) that specifically shows North American seasonal colour changes from orbit. Note the lack of green at the peak of winter.
So actually, it doesn’t take long to come to false conclusions using bad analogies and ignorance.
A few months back I ripped a big tear in the ass of my one and only pair of jeans. I loved them and they were perfect and now they are gone
So yesterday I finally got around to a consignment shop to find blue jeans and what do I find but the exact same cut/brand/size for 12 dollars. And another pair from an expensive brand that were an additonal 20% off the price AND I got to apply 10 dollars store credit for some stuff I had dropped off there. All in all scored 2 pairs of jeans for 24 buckaroos.

Datura inoxia also known as Moon Flower. All Datura plants contain tropane alkaloids such as scopolamine, hyoscyamine, and atropine, primarily in their seeds and flowers. Because of the presence of these substances, Datura has been used for centuries in some cultures as a poison and as a hallucinogen.
i got really happy about this and then i was like “this dog is probably dead” and now i am crying
First prize in Science’s Visualization Challenge (video category) went to this NASA video by Greg Shirah, Horace Mitchell, and Tom Bridgman. It shows Earth’s “climate engine” — the wind patterns and ocean currents that are powered by the sun.
ASOIAF has some weird sex scenes. You signed onto that when you decided to make a show out of it.
***trigger warning here for discussion of sexual violence***
Let’s go over some definitions here: when two people mutually agree to fuck each other, it is called sex….
