Aren’t gifs like the muggle version of the photographs in the Harry Potter universe?
A good documentary will expand your mind and make you feel a variety of emotions
Rape in India is not an uncommon thing. And it is usually the woman’s fault. Because we ‘dress provocatively’, we’re ‘asking for it’.
In a BBC documentary made earlier this year regarding the Delhi gangrape of a girl travelling in a bus (so many speculations, how can we forget?), the host meets the lawyer defending the accused.
He says on camera that the girl asked for it, that she if she was a respectable woman she would still be alive, that she was responsible for being raped.
He said that on camera. And people all over the world got to watch it.
How extremely mortifying it is to watch the video and know the world has watched it too.
Jeremy Loveday talks about a very valid point. How we are all silent about rape and gender bias and how we condone it by our silence.
What is it about trust that makes it so unreliable
When you tell someone something in good faith. And expect the same in return
They pussyfoot their way through and you remain innocently oblivious
I cannot do not promise cold revenge. I was so angry, I started counting in French. I am trying to follow the Buddhist way of life. Dalai Lama sure has made an impression. What a cute, funny old gezer he is. Like the old guy in FairyTale.
I have a test tomorrow and my mind is roiling. I have to listen to Dalai Lama’s anecdotes to cheer me up
Isn’t it unfair that I am ruining my day because of a selfish bitch?
Semper fi, pretty girl
Gavin Aung Than turned Bill Watterson’s 1990 speech at Kenyon College into an illustrated story, styled similarly to Calvin and Hobbes, and calls this „the story of his life“. Expect, of course, that he‘s a stay-at-home dad to two dogs. Be sure to check out more of Gavin‘s comics on …
Aah!! Here is Decembre. There are things happening in my life. But when asked ‘What’s up’, I say ‘Nothing really’. But that’s probably because I don’t feel like making small talk with people now. So I’m going to make a list of things that are actually happening in my life, before I forget and let them slip
1. I’m going to France in January. Tickets are booked. Next in line : Visa
2. I have to make the jacket by Monday(the 9th). C’est difficile!! The fabric is waterproof, so it has a rubber coating on the back. Which makes it difficult for fusing to stick to it and for me to run two pieces in the machine. The lower ply just kind of sticks to table and refuses to move resulting in puckering
3. I have to make my hood. I haven’t yet. I have to make it today at home
4. I have to study for tomorrow’s test. Which is also, plus difficile. Work study. Interesting. But boring if you have to study it
5. I also have a test on Productions and Operations Management. It was okay before the mid-semester break, but after the break, I haven’t been able to understand a darn thing.
6. I am reading the second book of the Chaos Walking series. I finished the first in 6 hours. And have been struggling through the second. It is fairly boring.
Well, that is all there is to my life currently.
My French course is almost over. I have one class left, the oral exam. Yesterday we had our hearing test and I scored an huit et demie out of dix. Which was pretty good considering how incredibly poorly my ears perform their function of hearing. So I’m looking forward to the test
This guy seems to understand what’s going on.
A video for everyone who can only think of “Blood Diamonds” when they think of Sierra Leone.
This is so inspiring. And Kelvin is amazing!
Reminds me of a book I read about Micheal Kamakwambe, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind
