I am an acknowledgedly privileged white Wisconsin girl and former medical student at UW-Madison who now doesn't know what the freak she's doing with her life. A proud queer romantic asexual still working on being just as ecstatic about her biaural sensorineural hearing loss (almost there).
This sounds like a formal manifesto so let's change the beat. I AM A FREAKIN' GLITTERBABY FANGIRL. LOVE ME! (or get annoyed with me but I'll just pull a Dumbledore and whip my hair Aberforth).
I warn you there will be social justice butt kicking infused with borderline freakish amounts of Starkid, Harry Potter, Glee, The Hunger Games, all things theatre, Firefly, Doctor Who, Doctor Who, Doctor Who, and all sorts o' nerdy things all the other nerds geek about.

“The night I was cast, I went out and bought The Empire Strikes Back and Jaws. My goals were to get a voice as sinister as Darth Vader and the menacing physicality of the shark. It’s so easy to take these big beasts – these ferocious characters – and cook them at ten the whole time. But I wanted to have this circling, steady presence that would suddenly attack randomly. Peter allowed me to make a lot of adjustments. Being a Maori, in the scene where I’m beating up Thorin, I rocked back on my warg, raised my eyes up and did this look that in the Maori world is called ‘pukana’. You show the enemy the whites of your eyes. It just happened instinctively and at the end of the take I said, “Peter, I think I pukana-ed!” I didn’t think he’d use it, but sure enough, when I went down to the premiere with a bunch of Maori friends, there it was.”

every time i see those sympathetic hitler posts with like 100k+ notes i want to die
ok and it just makes me laugh that the picture is of hitler holding hands with a little girl because like…… just google “hitler with children” hitler took pictures with as many children as possible to humanize him to the german people

What if oxygen is poisonous and it just takes 75-100 years to kill us?
My science teacher said he thinks that’s true actuallyYeah this is actually pretty much exactly what is going on. It’s why anti-oxidants are such a big deal. Bonus fact: oxygen oxidizes stuff in your cells or, in other words, it’s not toxic, just setting you on firevery very slowly.
It’s not really the oxygen that’s poisonous to you, but the free radicals that are formed VERY RARELY during cellular respiration. It’s just an oxygen with an unpaired electron which means it really REALLY wants another electron(antioxidants are basically just electron donors) to the point where it will rip it away from a stable compound. Your body does have enzymes to deal with them though so unless your exposed to oxygen that is purer than the atmosphere your fine. Anaerobic bacteria lack these enzymes though which is why patients with necrotizing fasciitis are sometimes treated in a hyperbaric chamber. Not all types of necrotizing fasciitis are anaerobic, but if they are, exposing them to higher levels of oxygen will kill them or at least slow them down.
*slow clap for Elly* I’m so proud of you dear, look at that science

If you think abortions ok, remember what Horton says.
Awkward. Dr. Seuss and his wife were really liberal and pro-choice. They’ve even threatened to sue pro-life organizations for using this quote the wrong way (the way you’re doing it actually). I guess you didn’t already know that Horton Hears a Who is about the American occupation of Japan post-WWII. He even dedicated it to his dear Japanese friend.
Mrs. Geisel (Mrs. Seuss) continued donating to Planned Parenthood and advocating for reproductive health and rights after her husband died.
Mrs. Seuss died before her husband? She killed herself because she was very painfully Ill. *i can’t insert pictures on mobile but pretend that more you know star picture is here*
thank you. that just shows they lied to prove their point. just like demies to lie.
yo Dr. Seuss actually had two wives
his first wife Helen committed suicide but his second wife Audrey is - as far as I’m aware - alive today
and these documents show that she most certainly did donate to Planned Parenthood

I love the fact that the Avengers fandom denied that Coulson died so hard and for so long that they finally made a series about him coming back to life.
we all had level 7 security clearance before anybody even knew what it was
