Good evening! I'm an English English graduate with an interest in all kinds of fun things, and a will to find even more. I reblog whatever I feel like at that moment, including but by no means limited to: Dr Who, Song of Ice and Fire, Homestuck, Pokemon, Avatar TLA/TLK, Zelda, Final Fantasy, Dept Heaven, Whedonverse. Usually not things that specifically ask me to reblog them, though. *****************************************************

Good luck with that.

#SCIENCE #OR NOT
It’s … a form of science? A heavily deluded form of science?

#as a smartass preteen I actually asked the local vicar to explain how they could reconcile dinosaurs and the bible #the answer was along the lines of well they weren’t literal days #which I thought seemed fair enough
I asked my religious studies teacher! He said something very similar. I expect this exchange is a common one in churches and schools all over xD

A handy guide to some of the terrible things the Mail has printed since 1924.
This barely scratches the surface, though, I find it hard to believe they didn’t do anything terrible between 1956 and 1984.

and yet people still use it as a source
leftists from outside the UK still use it as a source
you all need to stop using the Daily Mail as a source FOREVER. Do not reblog, do not link, do not go to their site because they profit off ad traffic, and tell anybody you see doing any of these to immediately and permanently stop. We can’t run them into the ground but we can at least put a little dent in their profits and we can at least stop legitimising their bile by giving them anything other than negative attention.

yeah even when linking to an article on something trivial like a puppy riding a tricycle, it’s always better to find a different source because getting people to click that link gives them advertising revenue. 
also if you need any more convincing, the founder of the Daily Mail and general trust was an active supporter of the Nazi party, and he used his newspapers to try and influence people to advocate an alliance with Germany

yeah i tried to use it as a source once and i was totally wrong - basically it claimed hitler had charlie chaplin on his hit list…uh no

16ruedelaverrerie:

The adventures of Lady Who Is Also a Knight and Willowy Poet Boyfriend! I like to think that they just play dumb medieval pranks on each other all the time. Willowy Poet Boyfriend usually does not grasp that she is pranking him until it is too late. He tries to get back at her by composing a catchy lay about how obsessed she is with pegging, and then realizes what he has done only when people start to look at him funny on the street. Willowy Poet Boyfriend is not the master of pranks.

Will Lady Who Is Also a Knight win her jousting match? Will I ever escape from relying on anachronisms for humor value? Will these adventures actually continue? Does reversing an established binary qualify as true transgression? The questions are endless! TUNE IN NEXT TIME (IF THERE IS A NEXT TIME) FOR MORE QUESTIONS AND NO ANSWERS

when i was younger i really wanted to try turkish delight cause i figured it had to be pretty good if edmund betrayed his family for it

IT’S FUCKING DELICIOUS IT’S SECOND ONLY TO ANGEL DELIGHT I WOULD BETRAY YOU ALL FOR IT

Um.

well, ok not you and liz or anyone, but I do like Angel delight so it always worries me that if the white witch approached me with a fuckton of angel delight I might just say yes :S

Not a fan of Angel Delight, but I totally see where Edmund was coming from. Turkish Delight is the best.
