Apparently there are bronies out there that are angry that girls/women like My Little Pony. Because they think they are faking their interest in it/don’t love it as much as them.
They’re applying the “fake gamer/geek girl” stereotype onto the audience the show was intended for.
And if you don’t think that’s the most hilarious shit idk if we can be friends.
LifeStraw purifies water instantly and inexpensively: it is a solution that can provide millions of under-privileged people with safe drinking water.
reblogging again because science
Seriously, Science. Do your thing.
IT’S ONLY 20$.
OH MY GOD
I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR TUMBLR TO GET WIND OF THIS
I’ll always signal boost this because not only does this work for people in under privilege areas it’s also proof of human ingenuity.
Really, we kids that grew up in the early 90s were all told about how we had to conserve water because drinkable water was such a rare resource and people in foreign lands were basically fucked up the ass because there was no way for them to get drinking water. 20 years and 20 bucks later one of the biggest problems humanity faced is a non issue. THAT’S FUCKING CRAZY!
Somebody should start one of those online donate things where people can donate money to buy these to send to areas with unsafe drinking water. But somebody other than me should do it because I don’t know how to do that kind of thing or get the word out.
this is amazing
FYI to everyone, if you purchase a LifeStraw through EarthEasy, they will send you a LifeStraw and also send one to the Philippines (through the Rotary Water Projects) so that the victims of Typhoon Haiyan can have safe drinking water. So if you were thinking of buying one, buy through them, not Amazon. It’s the same price.
Follow-up to above, you also can donate directly to the LifeStraw fundraiserhere without needing to buy one for yourself. You have drinking water right now. You can wait to get this. They cannot.

This is Tonker. Tonker desperately needs a home, or else he’s in danger of being put down THIS FRIDAY because his owner is an irresponsible git.
Here’s the story: Tonker has been living well over a year (possibly two) chained up outside. He has a doghouse, but it’s a tiny little shittily made one. This is in the higher areas of Nevada so, even though we’re in a desert, we’re more likely to get rain and we definitely get snow everytime winter comes around. Not once is Tonker ever brought inside.
Tonker also rarely gets attention from anyone who isn’t my Nana or myself. For one thing, his owner has some sort of job that means he’s rarely ever home for very long. Secondly, his owner just doesn’t seem to plain care. My nana’s talked to him before and apparently he doesn’t let Tonker in the house because he doesn’t want his floors scratched up. I can count the number of times I’ve seen him outside with that dog on one hand- and we are his neighbors who can see where Tonker is chained up right from our living room and computer room. I don’t think they even had a leash for this dog for the longest time until the owner’s sister got him one just this year. The chain they use to keep him outside is so shitty that Tonker has gotten loose numerous times and chased the tires of passing trucks. I shouldn’t have to tell you how dangerous this is, and it only becomes worse when you realize we live right next to a highway. It’s only a matter of time before this dog gets hit by a car.
Tonker is an obnoxiously friendly and loving dog, he really is. He does have a slight jumping problem, but that’s mainly because no one is ever around to train him. Because his owner is a piece of shit human being, this dog has been neglected and thus doesn’t know many commands (although I’ve managed to get him to sit) and isn’t completely socialized. Still, Tonker is a really eager dog who wants to learn, wants some love and attention. He’s just in the worst place for it, mostly because he has one of the worst people for it. He HAS been fixed, and we would guess that he is around four years old.
Because Tonker has gotten off his chain so much, his owner is being a pisspoor coward and wants to put him down because he apparently doesn’t have any time to take him to a shelter that will find him a forever home. After a fair bit of yelling on my end, he agreed that he would pay me and my nan the expenses of finding a place to put this dog.
But I need your help, Tumblr.
I’ve already called the Las Vegas SPCA and the Pitbull program that they recommended, neither has any room to take Tonker in. We don’t know where to turn.
If you live in the Southern Nevada area, please contact me. This includes areas around Las Vegas, Pahrump, or Goldfield. We need someone who is willing to take in a loving dog so that he can have a second chance at life with someone who truly cares for him.

Disney vs. 7 early fairytales
The 1812 version of Snow White is even worse when you consider that the girl was only seven years old in the tale (plus her unconscious body ended up being carted around by the prince until one of his servants accidentally woke her up). Also, in The Little Mermaid, the mermaid’s unable to speak because she had her tongue cut out >__<
But I’d love to see faithful adaptations of the original tales. Especially Bluebeard. We need a Bluebeard adaptation.
Actually, the original-original pre-Grimm Brothers’ stories that were passed around Europe via oral tradition are nowhere near as violent as the Grimm’s made them. Cinderella’s stepsisters were never ugly and kept their eyes, Snow White’s mother was not even a villain (instead a group of bandits were), and instead of spending the whole story napping Sleeping Beauty outwitted a dangerous bandit leader, wouldn’t let him sleep with her, and saved herself.
The original oral stories were radically changed by the Brothers Grimm to fit their personal and political beliefs. Most notably, they often added in female characters solely for the purpose of making them evil villains and took away most of the heroines’ agency and intelligence. Both brothers belonged to a small fanatical sect of Catholicism that vilified women because of the idea of Original Sin and Wilhelm in particular had a particularly deep hatred of women. The Grimms were actually pretty horrible people. Those cannibalistic queens and ugly stepsisters and the mass amount of violence against women didn’t exist until the Grimms wanted them to. Their ideas stuck so soundly though that we now assume they were in the original tales and that these terrible characters and ideas come out of some perceived barbaric Old World culture. But in truth they’re really the Grimms’ weird obsession with hating women showing through. The original oral folklore focused on the heroes’ and heroines’ good deeds and used them as ways to teach cultural norms and a society’s rules and encouraged girls to be quick-witted and street-savvy instead of passive princesses, and the Grimms promptly stripped that all away.
"Grimms Bad Girls and Bold Boys" by Ruth Bottingheimer is an excellent book on this

I hate it when people say “science ruined dinosaurs” as though dinosaurs are just some pop culture monster invention and not real things that existed and that we are continuing to make new discoveries about
