'ello! welcome to my blog, where the posts are haphazard with a fair amount of Fall Out Boy, Elementary, and Community shtuff. But essentially whatever strikes my fancy ends up here. I don't really have much else interesting to say, so we'll leave it at that and I hope you enjoy!

In the end, Captain America does not make the heroic sacrifice, thus further proving that Black Widow can handle the emotional weight of being a lead character. As if anyone could really forget the most quoted line in “The Avengers” — “I’ve got red in my ledger; I’d like to wipe it out” — it helps to have that line fresh in your mind when deconstructing what Widow does in the final act of what’s billed as a Captain America movie. Black Widow doesn’t wipe out the red in her ledger. No, she blasts her ledger out to the world, like it was the grisliest email forward of all time. We know from her heart to heart with Hawkeye that the shame she feels about what she’s done is real, and she hesitates when she realizes that taking down the bad guys means revealing her secrets. But she does it anyway, because she’s not just a spy anymore; she’s a super hero, and she makes a super hero’s sacrifice.

Princeton Concludes What Kind of Government America Really Has, and It’s Not a Democracy | PolicyMic 
The news: A new scientific study from Princeton researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page has finally put some science behind the recently popular argument that the United States isn’t a democracy any more. And they’ve found that in fact, America is basically an oligarchy.
An oligarchy is a system where power is effectively wielded by a small number of individuals defined by their status called oligarchs. Members of the oligarchy are the rich, the well connected and the politically powerful, as well as particularly well placed individuals in institutions like banking and finance or the military.
For their study, Gilens and Page compiled data from roughly 1,800 different policy initiatives in the years between 1981 and 2002. They then compared those policy changes with the expressed opinion of the United State public. Comparing the preferences of the average American at the 50th percentile of income to what those Americans at the 90th percentile preferred, as well as the opinions of major lobbying or business groups, the researchers found out that the government followed the directives set forth by the latter two much more often.
It’s beyond alarming. As Gilens and Page write, “the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.” In other words, their statistics say your opinion literally does not matter.
That might explain why mandatory background checks on gun sales supported by 83% to 91% of Americans aren’t in place, or why Congress has taken no action on greenhouse gas emissions even when such legislation is supported by the vast majority of citizens.
This problem has been steadily escalating for four decades. While there are some limitations to their data set, economists Thomas Piketty and Emmanuel Saez constructed income statistics based on IRS data that go back to 1913. They found that the gap between the ultra-wealthy and the rest of us is much bigger than you would think…

I said this when I was in fucking ninth grade and wrote a twelve paged paper on it and my teacher told me that I was a conspiracy theorist and that I needed a realistic topic. ok.

'Conspiracy theorist' is nothing more than a derogatory title to dismiss a critical thinker.

Toxic | Melanie Martinez

One line in and I already knew I’d be reblogging.

Press play. Do it.

This is so sexy.

If men’s kindnesses toward women were really only kindnesses, a man would be pleased if another man or woman offered these kindnesses to him. He would be pleased if another man or woman lit his cigarette or pulled out his chair for him. He would be pleased to derive his income, prestige, power and even his identity from his partner. He would take pride in another man’s or woman’s offer to walk him to his car at night. But in fact, “one of the very nasty things that can happen to a man is his being treated or seen as a woman, or womanlike.

(Frye 1983, p. 136).”

Yeah!  This reality hit me a few months ago when a teenage boy at work said to another teenage boy, “ladies first!” in order to insult him.  Chivalry is not about respect or kindness.

Donetsk leaflet: Jews must register or face deportation

I’m scared of what would happen after they register…

I googled it. Multiple news sources are covering this. This is actually happening. This is terrifying.

My first thought is that this would lead to something bigger. I don’t know if it would be on the scale of the Holocaust, but registering of Jews was an early part of it.

i want to reblog this 1000000000000099999 times im fucking flipping my fucking shit here

after kansas city shooting i fucking like didnt sleep and now this and i feel like fucking harry potter when theyre all like figuring out voldemorts coming back “it feels like it did before…HE’S back”

except antisemitism never left, it never disappeared

i duno how to handle this fear and these fucking horrible feelings and the fear and anxiety and

fucking no no no no no 

this is so terrifying what the fuck ugh

Hey guys, asking if anyone can verify this? Every site besides ynet has just taken the information from the original article, and there are a lot of accusations saying that the stamp is a fake, etc. 

If this is really happening, it’s terrible, but I’ve been doing as much research as I can and for how big this story should be, it’s extremely disproportionately represented in the media (which, let’s face it, isn’t as surprising as it should be). 

Apparently, there are also various spelling errors in the leaflet itself, but I don’t read the language…? 

I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’ve found multiple sources with different information and it’s pretty obvious it really happened. But from what I’ve read, it’s unclear what the source of the flyers are, whether it’s the government or some group of bigots or someone else. But it DEFINITELY happened:

http://thinkprogress.org/world/2014/04/17/3428041/someone-is-ordering-eastern-ukraines-jews-to-register-with-separatist-group/

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2014/04/17/jews-ordered-to-register-in-east-ukraine/7816951/

http://www.jpost.com/Jewish-World/Jewish-News/Flyers-call-for-Jews-to-register-with-pro-Russians-in-Ukrainian-city-348695

http://gawker.com/jews-are-being-ordered-to-register-in-russian-controlle-1564253164

i mean others and i have already brought up that it’s unclear who is responsible for the leaflet and it may be bigots unrelated to the government that made it - but that doesn’t change the fact this is an act of terrorism even if the leaflet is fake - these people are trying to terrorize jews by invoking the holocaust and giving them this shit

DID YOU GUYS HEAR THAT BASICALLY THE HIGH-UP DUDES IN JSA (JUNIOR STATE OF AMERICA, A NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR HIGHSCHOOL STUDENTS WHO WANT TO GET INVOLVED IN OUR GOVERNMENT; WE HAVE DEBATES AND CONVENTIONS AND STUFF IT’S CHILL AND ALSO HIGH UP PEOPLE IN JSA USUALLY GET INTO IVY LEAGUE COLLEGES AND END UP EITHER HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL OR IN OUR GOVERNMENT) STARTED A SECRET FACEBOOK GROUP CALLED ‘GUARDIANS OF DEMOCRACY’ IN WHICH THEY DISCUSSED THE SEXUAL HISTORIES OF GIRLS IN JSA, AND THE CURRENT JSA PRESIDENT OF MY REGION CALLED EXTREMELY STRONG, WELL-SPOKEN WOMEN SLUTS, AND THEY’VE BEEN RIGGING ELECTIONS SO GIRLS CAN’T WIN

A SUPER BRAVE AND AMAZING AND EDUCATED GIRL IN JSA FOUND OUT ABOUT IT AND GOT SCREENSHOTS OF THE FACEBOOK GROUP AND MADE A POST ON FACEBOOK TELLING EVERYONE ABOUT IT BECAUSE THE POST ABOUT IT SHE MADE ON THE JSA FACEBOOK GROUP GOT DELETED

MY ENTIRE JSA CHAPTER IS LIVID

I HAVE NEVER SEEN OUR CLUB LEADER SO PISSED OFF

I AM VERY VERY PISSED OFF

IF THIS GOVERNMENT SANCTIONED NATIONAL PROGRAM FOR OUR NATION’S FUTURE LEADERS IS FULL OF BOY-MEN WHO SEEM TO THINK THAT IT’S ACCEPTABLE TO RIG ELECTIONS IN THEIR FAVOR, WHAT DOES IT SAY ABOUT OUR GOVERNMENT? WHAT DOES IT SAY ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION ITSELF THAT THEY WERE ABLE TO FLOURISH AND SUCCEED AND ATTAIN SUCH HIGH LEVELS IN THE ORGANIZATION?

Also if they aren’t punished VERY SEVERELY and possibly have their college acceptances RESCINDED so that they NEVER EVER CAN BE IN A POSITION OF POWER then I AM MOVING TO SWEDEN BECAUSE THEY ARE GOOD AT EUROVISION AND I LIKE THEIR GOVERNMENT AND I SPEAK FRENCH WELL AND IT SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD IDEA.
