I feel like rage because dammit, why can’t I have one of those nice chest deep voices I love to listen to. Noooo I have this light airy off key thing that even makes my cat whack me in the face.
I want to sing BALLADS dammit! DIRGES! I want to sing RAGE, LOVE, and the lamentations of ENEMIES as I crush them with the power of my voice box alone!
You can’t sing that stuff with true meaning if you sound like an off key Disney Sleeping Beauty with asma.
Stay tuned for the sequel: Dammit Why Aren’t New Subdivisions Designed Like The Shire. You could have all the green pretty yard you want because it’s your ROOF.
Just a semi-finished sketch of some frolicking beefy centaur dudes, inspired by draft horses . :B
Can THESE cuties be in the next fantasia???
Fuck i’m crying now
So my mother was up to her usual shit; calling me useless and entitled. Saying that I’m no longer allowed in the bathroom with a shower and I need to clean the other one by noon tomorrow morning or else
keep in mind it hasn’t worked in 3 years.
I was hiding in my bedroom while my parents argued over who’s fault I was when my sister came in. She walked up to me and opened up her fist revealing a rainbow popsicle ‘best friends’ necklace. She thrust it into my hand and whispered that she wanted me to have it.
"because it’s a popsicle?" I asked
"no silly because it’s a rainbow. I know- I mean- I thought you’d like it."
She then winked and told me that I no longer needed to worry about cleaning the bathroom because she had spent the past hour doing it for me.
This seems so petty and small until you realize that for the past two years my parents have been doing their darnest to get rid of me. My sister will admit that I’ve always been the scapegoat but since I came out it seems their attacks are more pointed.
My sister is 11. She has grown up in a homophobic home and listened to my parents bitch about “those damn gays” her entire life. A couple months ago I came out to her and told her the reason our parents have been threatening to kick me out or send me away. I explained that sometimes gay girls and gay boys are even beaten up by people, just because of who they love.
I cannot express how much her support means to me; perhaps I am not the one who’s wrong. If an 11 year old who has been taught nothing but hate, perhaps there is hope for the future.
If you dont fucking reblog this I hope you get thrown off a cliff into a pool of fucking legos.
because legos hurt and because this made me cry and congrats on your little sister being able to break out of your parents small boxes. Bless.
This will hopefully be me some day.
I have no idea how you lot do it on tumblr, but it has been over two years since I last rp’ed. Mostly because I am terrified I suck at it now, but dammit.
… I need to try because I need to role play darnit!
Adventure oriented rp wanted.
Or something dark and twisted.
I… just hit me up.
A traditional hunter’s trophy called “charivari,” the silver ornaments worn with lederhosen in southern Germany and Austria.
Made with a silver standard no longer used in Germany, so most likely dates to the first half of 20th century or earlier. Made of real marten (wild weasel) jaw in fine silver 835 mount.
My dad is drunk and watching me play Oblivion
yelling in excitement when I smash things with a hammer
and keeps complaining when I won’t kill the good guys
I’m gonna cry
"What’s that? you’re a Monk? may peace be with you. SMASH."
"Yeah, peace. A peace of my warhammer more like."
PLEASE SEND HELP
Oh my god I am dying ahahahahha
someone in the world is maimed or killed by a landmine every hour. apopo is a not for profit ngo that has spent the last twenty years developing and implementing “hero rats” to clear affected areas of their landmines - over 1500 in tanzania, where apopo is headquartered, 2,728 in mozambique, and 657 in thailand. there also ongoing operations in angola and cambodia.
rats are known to be amongst the most sensitive animals when it comes to smell, with more functional genes for their olfactory system than any other mammal. a rat’s nose is constantly active and moving, and is always close to ground where vapour concentrations are highest and wind speeds are lowest.
the african giant pouched rat, being highly sociable and native to sub saharan africa, is specifically trained to detect tnt and mine casing minerals. using a combination of click training and food rewarding that begins shortly after birth and lasts nine months, the rats are able to cover 100 square metres of land in 20 minutes - something a human would need an entire day to do.
weighing just over a kilogram, the rats are too light to set off a landmine, and not one has died from the work. apopo adheres to very strict animal welfare protocols, and the rats are treated with the greatest of care and attention, with most meeting their expected eight years of life.
