I was tiredly tormented watching her slowly scattering pieces of her life with every blow.

"Why do you smoke?" I ask
“It’s a substitute” she answers like it’s the most natural thing to say.
“For what” I burst running out of patience and flooding with annoyance.

"For love" she pauses and blows out the smoke "you see, smoking, just like love it takes your breath away and clouds your field with endless grey"

I pull her by the hair and sink her head in the pool where we are sitting, I drown her head in the water and hold her tight fighting her struggle. When I feel her running out of fight, I hold her up again and ask sarcastically, sadly and angrily if those three ever collide.
“Did that take your breath away? Do you feel grey enough now”

Her eyes sinking and blinking in her head trying to swim back to life. She looks at me like a possessed demon and starts laughing out loud . It scares me. “I am dead” I think to myself.

She throws the cigaret that was still in her hand, wet now. Then stretches and reaches for the pack and shoves it to the water as well.

"No smoking" panting, she says "I got the point, you can stop trying to kill me now"

She never smoked again but her breath was taken away and her clouds were as grey as the shadows.

This time by love, something that cannot be substituted or subsided. The real delusion. Everything else is just a distraction.

christmas eve what about christmas adam

happy christmas adam to all men’s rights activists

Please stop pestering us with things like this. This has nothing to do with men fighting for their rights. Eve is short for ‘evening’. Please don’t turn activism into a joke. Thanks.

Someone isn’t having a good christmas adam

Christmas Adam: December 23rd. Comes before Christmas Eve and is generally unsatisfying.

This holiday season, don’t forget to celebrate, vocally appreciate, and reassure all the men in your life on Christmas Adam.

"By the way nobody knows. Nobody knows what the f—k is going on. You’re going to die. You’re going to lay next to the people that you know the most in life, the people that you’re going to grow old with. But you’re going to lay next to them in the middle of the night…

Hear hear







I’m crying.

LMAOOOOOOOOO the screaming in the beginning

"mr. owl"
"oh jesus christ"
"please don’t give me that look"
"please don’t fly"


That owl is 30000000% done

every time this video graces me with its presence i feel obliged to reblog it

I would have loved to see his reaction if the owl had flown right back in the window.

"For more than a decade, Ginsburg has worked with a trainer in the Supreme Court’s small ground-level exercise room. Recently, Breyer used a machine that Ginsburg had been using; she set it at six, while he could handle only five. Kagan uses the same trainer as Ginsburg, and when the younger Justice struggles with fifteen-pound curls the trainer says, ‘C’mon! Justice Ginsburg can do that easily!’"

The Adventures of George Washington by LadyHistory [more]

The funniest thing of the day.


I don’t even know where to go with this, but let’s start with a few ‘findings’ of this federally-funded research project:

The researchers, led by an epidemiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, have already concluded that lower athletic self-esteem among lesbians may lead to higher rates of obesity and that lesbians are more likely to see themselves at a healthy weight when they are not, according to the Free Beacon report.

Lesbians have low self-esteem but are delusional about their weight at the same time! A gay miracle!

My feelings about this particular study aside—the obesity epidemic in this country is a public health crisis. To better understand this extremely complicated issue, the federal government, and other entities, fund research on obesity literally ALL THE TIME.

For example, in March 2014, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced three grants totaling $5 million to universities to develop childhood obesity prevention programs.

Also, the National Institutes of Health has an entire webpage dedicated to acquiring funding for a wide variety of obesity-related studies, including, but not limited to:

  1. Obesity and asthma
  2. Reducing health disparities among minority and underserved children
  3. Health promotion among racial and ethnic males 
  4. Obesity in Native American communities
  5. Prevention and treatment of obesity in military populations

This isn’t about wasteful spending, this is about a few reporters picking one study on one population of Americans out of the dozens (or more) of federally-funded obesity studies and trying to make a point. 

And if you don’t believe me, read the second half of the Post article. Our dear friend and author, Mr. Josh Hicks (@reporter_hicks) compares this obesity study with a completely unrelated, nay, offensively irrelevant, study on the mysterious workings of duck vaginas, funded by the National Science Foundation. The findings of this study were published in various highly prestigious biology, zoology, and physiology journals. You know why? Because like obesity studies, studies on how animals work are funded literally ALL THE TIME, because SCIENCE. 

Josh Hicks is trying to play a cheap trick on Washington Post readers. This isn’t about government pork, this isn’t about duck vaginas, this isn’t even about lesbian obesity rates. This is an attempt to rile up a population with inherent biases, prejudices, and preconceived notions, banking on the fact that these people do not read critically and are going to jump to the easy (and woefully incorrect) conclusion. Josh, this is weak. I like the Post, but this is something I’d expect from Fox News.

And if you weren’t annoyed already, peruse the comments said readers left on the article.

"When a change comes, some species feel the urge to migrate, they call it zugunruhe. “A pull of the soul to a far off place,” following a scent in the wind, a star in the sky. The ancient message comes calling the kindred to take flight and gather together. Only then they can hope to survive the cruel season to come."
