Hey, bro, cool story.
DFTBA sells a bunch of shirts, and we market to ugly people and nerdy people and small people and big people and pretty people and we’re doing okay and plus we don’t need physical stores with LITERALLY THE WORST MUSIC EVER CREATED BY HUMANS PLAYING AT EAR-BLEEDING VOLUME SO THAT ALL OF YOUR PURPORTEDLY COOL AND BEAUTIFUL EMPLOYEES ARE MADE DEAF BY THEIR WORKING CONDITIONS.
So that’s another way of doing it.
Also I hate your jeans.
Put all your bad omens aside
— This is what it really means when a planet is in retrograde
You usually hear about a planet being “in retrograde” from astrologers, which might give you the impression that the term is mystical jargon. In fact, it does have an astronomical meaning. That meaning just happens to come from a rather outdated concept, when the Earth was still the center of the solar system. Today, it explains why planets seem to go backwards in the sky.
A long time ago, some astronomer looked at the sky, noticed that one of these moving stars had started moving backwards, and thought, “This can’t be good.” That set the precedent for the astrological concept of retrograde astronomical motion as an omen of bad times for people on Earth.
When people finally understood that Earth and the traveling stars were actually all planets moving around a central sun, things became a bit more clear. The reason they change direction is because our orbits are different. In the case with Earth and Mars, Mars has a longer orbit and so when we overtake the planet we view it on the starry background as if it is moving backwards.

today I was walking towards the bbc and decided to sing a bit of the Game Of Thrones theme (as you do) when i look up and Iwan Rheon FROM GAME OF THRONES happened to be walking past me at the EXACT SAME MOMENT and gave me a look like i did it deliberately to be annoying but it was just the world’s biggest coincidence .____.
this actually happened i was standing next to him and was like omfg
For at least the third time this month, a young child has shot and killed someone. On Tuesday afternoon, a five-year-old boy fatally shot his two-year-old sister in Cumberland County, Kentucky with .22 rifle the five-year-old was given as a gift.
“It’s a Crickett,” Cumberland County Coroner Gary White told the Lexington Herald-Leader. “It’s a little rifle for a kid.”
The rifle, which was usually stored in one of the home’s corners, was inadvertently left loaded, according to White. The boy’s mother was home at the time of the shooting.
“The little boy’s used to shooting the little gun,” White said, before saying the shooting will be ruled accidental. “Just one of those crazy accidents.”
Just one of those crazy accidents. You know, the completely unpredictable kind of accident that occurs when you give a five-year-old a rifle and leave it lying around the house, unattended.
If this sounds familiar, it’s because, sadly, it is. Earlier this month, a four-year-old shot and killed a deputy’s wife with a handgun. The next day a two-year-old reportedly shot his mother in the stomach with a 9mm Glock. Two days later, another four-year-old shot a six-year-old in the head, killing him.
Uh, guns are not good gifts. I’m pretty sure I wasn’t even allowed play guns at age 5. From now on, let’s just give kids soccer balls. Everyone loves soccer balls, especially those small mini ones.
I was born and raised in Kentucky, and most of my family is from the parts of the world where these tragedies are occurring My father believed (as do I), that the most effective form of gun safety is education. From around the age of 5, I was taught how to handle a gun, and how to be safe with a gun. I didn’t get my own gun until I was 12. I was never allowed access to it unless my father was around, and when he wasn’t there, they were hidden (we couldn’t afford a fancy gun safe or anything like that).
When my father passed away a couple years ago, my uncle showed up, and brought them out of hiding. To this day, I still have no idea where they were hidden. 4 rifles, 2 handguns, and enough ammo to survive the Apocalypse, and in 20 years, I never was able to find them.
All children should know how to safely handle a gun, just in the event that they should ever happen upon them, but as a parent, it is ENTIRELY your responsibility to prevent anyone from accidentally or intentionally playing with a firearm.
If you have a gun, please be smart. If you have children, please be even smarter. I hope you never have to experience first hand why you need to.

and then Taylor Swift bought a house on Watch Hill and Rhode Island let out a collective shudder and THIS DEAD FUCKING SHARK WASHED THE FUCK UP ON SHORE.
let this be a lesson to you, Taylor: you may be lulled into a false sense of security by the obscene wealth surrounding your seaside getaway, but the rest of li’l Rhody is watching, and we are not pleased.
If Taylor was smart, she would have bought the Superman Building.
I knew you were trouble when you moved in…
