It’s amazing how much more the addition of the wings adds to everything—personality, drama, even a little humour. I love wings agh.

privileged people: *say dehumanizing things about oppressed people, makes them the brunt of every joke all while literally murdering some of them every single day*

I wonder if any of my friends had a crush on me but then got to know me and were like “haha no, dodged a bullet there.”

For those who live in the US, Best Buy and Sprint are giving free cell phone service to ANY student of any kind. Elementary, Middle, High, or College. The ONLY 2 main requirements is that you are fully enrolled as either a part-time, full-time, or vocational student and you have proof that you are in fact, a school student (if you’re under 13 you have an additional requirement, your parents have to sign a waiver giving permission).
The only downside is that the phones are pretty expensive to buy, with the cheapest phone being a little dinky flip phone that costs $250 (The cheapest iPhone costs $500), but Best Buy will let you trade in your old phone (and other electronics) towards the cost of a new phone.
Even though the phone is expensive, and you do have to pay a $36 one-time fee, the entire phone service is free. Not only is it free, but you get unlimited talk AND text AND 1GB of data, or for just $10/month you can get UNLIMITED DATA too. Not even the cheap walmart plans have unlimited data. You can get unlimited everything for just $120 an entire year, or unlimited talk and text for literally nothing. BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE! If you add one more lines, the student line gets another year FOR FREE. This is really good if you’re fed up with AT&T or Verizon and want to switch to Sprint, you essentially get one of your lines for free for 2+ years if you’re on a family plan and can really help you save money!
This is good for college kids who maybe can’t afford to pay for a phone AND service plan, or for families who are looking to reduce phone plans or maybe can’t afford to have everyone own a cell phone.
Even though the phones are expensive, they end up paying for themselves. For instance, in my family we pay almost $170/month on Verizon for 2 iPhones which is almost $2,040/year. If I traded in my current iPhone and bought a new iPhone 5S for $650, that would cut our phone bill by almost HALF, which is more than enough to cover the cost of buying a new iPhone.

Knowth looks like something from the Lord of the Rings from the outside.
Inside its a neolithic passage tomb older and more technologically advanced than the pyramids at giza.
Knowth is aligned to the equinoxes something that would have taken an unusually advanced knowlege of astronomy and on a few days each year light used to travel up a narrow passage into the mound to illuminate a central chamber with big ‘basin stones’ shaped like cauldrons or alters. Today there is a large supporting wall put in to keep the structure intact so it doesnt happen.
Another unusually high tech feature is the corbelled roof, its is almost a perfect arch showing the builders were aware of the stresses and strains the roof would face and they built it so well using only stone materials and stone tools, without even using mortar that its lasted more than 5000 years and is still water tight. Despite the site being altered during various phases of occupation.
Knowth features in mythology as Cnogba, its linked with deities like Lugh, Aengus, the Dagda, Bui/The Cailleach and name might be related to the death of a goddess there or interestingly to the name for Hazel nuts (Cno) famously eaten there. Its interesting because it relates to the story of the near by river boyne.
The river came into the world from a well in the otherworld over hung by hazel trees. A salmon lived there and it got divine knowlege by eating the nuts that fell into the well. When the river entered our world the salmon swam down in to it and lived by the passage tombs until it was caught by Fionn who got divine inspiration from eating it.
The hazel nut had that role even outside myth, poets in medieval ireland called the struggle for inspiration ‘cracking the caill crimmon’ or cracking the hazel nuts. While we cant know what meaning the builders of knowth gave it. The story of the river and the hazel nuts might mean Cnogba was atleast a place associated with divine inspiration.
anon i was trying to wait on this but it seems tumblr has eaten it ;_; which sucks, I’d rather get 10 messages that are spam than miss one that isn’t. i’m really sorry about your friend being mean to you, that’s super not cool. I really hope she understands one day that she hurt you and that you’re able to feel better about it <3333 ty for your kind message
;A; thank you anon that is so lovely to hear!!
This is a great movie.
What I want to say EVERY SINGLE TIME.
Baristas are paid minimum wage to follow their company’s policies. That includes using whatever terms their company decides on for branding purposes. If you want a frappuccino instead of a frappe, a large instead of a venti, or whatever other thing you wanna call your drink, that’s fine. Your barista? They are paid shitty wages and work shitty hours and have to deal with hundreds of people telling them medium instead of grande, or large instead of venti (which refers to the fact that it is, actually, 20 oz of liquid, meaning you’re being a jackass for no reason).
Your barista isn’t stupid. They know what a fucking ‘large’ is and they know their store’s branding and slang sounds dumb to a lot of people. So how about, instead of being an asshole to a minimum wage worker, you consider why you keep buying $6 coffees instead of making that shit at home.
I’ll say that one more time.
Your barista is not stupid.
They know what a large is, what a medium is, and what a small is.
They also know they can be fired for not toeing the company line. And they can be fired for not standing there and taking the abuse you’re spewing at them.
They are being paid to not fight back. They are being paid to stand there all day and translate medium to grande and venti and large and regular and all while you bitch about the specific words you “have” to use. They are being paid to be welcoming and friendly and nice to you while you call them stupid.
Bitch, I know baristas with Ph.Ds, okay? Back the fuck off.
I can definitely attest to that big comment
Yo if it’s any consolation there’s a later scene where Elizabeth Banks’s character (the blonde girl with him) calls him a douchebag and a loser and points out to him it’s called a venti because it’s 20 oz and makes him feel like the pos he is
The three things I hate the most are irony, cliffhangers, and
finally someone breaks it down for those of us who are makeup challenged.
Clam found off Iceland was 507 - “the oldest animal on Earth”, until British scientists killed it
When a clam was dredged up from the bottom of the sea of Iceland, a team of scientists eagerly cracked it open - killing the oldest animal in the world.
The mollusc was 507 years old - when it was born, Michelangelo was just about to start work on the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
The process of opening clams to study their “growth lines” is fatal. The clam was named Ming after the Chinese Ming Dynasty, which was in power when it was born. x
are you fucking kidding me
