when ur teacher asks whos presenting next
This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.
Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.
Also when will people realise that AFRICA IS NOT ONE BIG COUNTRY and that saying ‘African Scientists’ is like saying ‘European Scientist’ to describe someone from the dozens of countries in the EU
This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!
The government has no money. The government is broke.

So today I was thinking about how I’m not that gay so I can’t be a flaming homosexual but I don’t want to be a coal powered homosexual you know? I want to be a sustainable homosexual. Maybe a wind or solar powered homosexual.

something all of tumblr should see.

how the fuck imma let you go to bed at night with yo life together when mine got all fucked up cause of you?
Exactly. Completely ignoring the fact that catharsis is possible through righteous vengeance.
They pulled this shit in Wreck-It-Ralph too, but that one was even worse since they were pretty much straight up admitting that their happiness was only guaranteed through the continuous abuse he had to face from them — and then on top of that they called him selfish for wanting to break out of that cycle.
Did anyone think that maybe by getting back at these people you would be able to help others from getting hurt, since usually these type of people are repeat offenders and can target other people????
This is the worst fucking trend seen in children’s movies ever I swear to god.
Okay in other examples I can understand the concern about the trope, depending.
But in Paranorman???
It’s about someone who has become a bully…
She was a victim, yes. She was hurt.
But she didn’t seek justice. What she did is NOT comparable to sensible reparations for a grievous crime.
She made the ones who hurt her suffer. She didn’t stop them, or defend herself from them.
She hurt them. She induced a kind of torture against them, which also affected an entire town, drawing out the ugliest and most shameful parts of human nature.
The entire point of this beautiful moment is a boy, who knows what it’s like to be hurt… recognizing that the bully of this story is actually just a victim lashing out.
And helping her let go of the same kind of vicious hate that killed her in her era… helping her finally achieve a sense of personal peace.
Standing up to bullies and abusers does not need to involve becoming like them.
And everyone is different, yes, so I suppose revenge may be cathartic for some.
But in the context of this film, we are not talking about reasonable defense. We are talking about inducing suffering.
We are talking about becoming the bully.
We are talking about letting hatred and fear dominate your motivations and actions… And that isn’t healthful to the mind or body…
Much more disturbing than misuse of this trope to me is the vicious call for personal revenge against evildoers - not for the sake of safety for self and others so much as for personal catharsis.
It suggests that there are people who simply deserve to suffer… that there are people willing to spur that suffering…
And that targets “bad” people… not the damaging fundamental mentalities and ideals those people embody.
To paraphrase a cliche, it focuses on a symptom rather than addressing the actual illness.
It’s fire against fire. Hate is hate… whomever it’s against.
The word used in the film is “SUFFER.” Not protect, defend, enact justice or vengeance or righteousness.
I feel like you guys are completely missing the point here…
Hiccup: Afternoon, m’lad, where have you been?
Arvid: Oh, winning races. What else? Where have you been?
Hiccup: Avoiding my Mom.
(( Yessss, I’m finally branching out from Disney… (don’t get too excited though, I’m probably not going to make a habit out of this. ;) ). Here’s my tribute to HTTYD 2, because GUUUUUHHHHHHH!!!!!! *flails* IT WAS SO GOOD!!!!! <3<3<3

Call Me Maybe came out 2 years ago

-I couldn’t leave my best girl.Not when she owes me a dance.
What makes this part such a punch to the gut is the fact that the beginning of the scene itself isn’t actually sad at all. Sure, there’s a wistfulness on Steve’s side and he’s quite frank about feeling lost in this new world, but Peggy is honest with him in return, like she has always been and she also makes it clear that she has no regrets with how she had lived her life. This is how their relationship has always been defined, and Steve is simply happy for her, so proud of her. She is his anchor, his compass pointing north, and it doesn’t matter whether she’s 25 or 95.
Then in a split second, she forgets everything, forgets the present him. The him that was just smiling with her just moments ago. In her own fight against such a cruel disease, Peggy only remembers him in terms of her grief of losing him 70 years ago. And that’s why Steve crumbles so visibly here, even as he tries so hard to hold himself together and be brave for her. It’s what Peggy herself would’ve done if their situations have been reversed, and Steve knows it.
And arguably, it’s what Peggy did when she spoke to Steve on the radio. It was heartrending and terrifying, but Peggy stayed on with him until it cut out. What’s more, she gave him what he needed then— a light distraction from his demise, a promise, a voice that he loved in his ear.
When Peggy said that he wouldn’t be alone, she didn’t just mean bodies with him on Hydra raids, or even a voice on the radio— she meant that he would be supported. Steve is honoring their accord. He will put on his brave face, despite how brokenhearted he is to see the change in her demeanor, and he will tell Peggy the truth: that he couldn’t leave his best girl.
