aw me and jamie
let me tell you a little story. so jamie went to his study to get his phone because i wanted to have a picture of the both of us right, and as he was picking up his phone and switching it on, he kept saying, “am i popular am i popular am i popular am i popular am i popular” until the screen came up and it was empty of notifications and then he made an “OOHhff” sound as if he’d just been shot and then he sighed and said, “i’m not popular”
Hitler flirting with Eva Braun.
I don’t know how this makes me feel
It makes me feel very uncomfortable
You know what’s so uncomfortable about this? It shows that perhaps one of the most evil men in history, was a human being. That, on occasion, he could be nice, even flirty. That’s not all. You want to see evil people as evil, screaming horrible stuff over a desk with 20 microphones with 20, 000 people saluting them. The evil is clear and recognizable then. This shows a completely different image, it scares you because that means that evil isn’t a stereotype, that evil is not recognizable, that evil could be anyone. It scares you because this shows that could be lurking inside anyone and you’ll never ever know. Maybe in you?
i reblogged this literally like 2 minutes ago, but i want this version because of that comment ^
That comment is one of my favorite post commentaries, because it’s completely right. People aren’t inherently evil. Like good, it’s a role they grow and live into. We have just as much potential to destroy as this man exhibited. And it’s a very eye opening experience to realize that.
does anyone even remember that one time hitler attended that luncheon between world leaders, some guests of which even included china’s socialist leader as well as Stalin. And then when they were ordering, everyone was gladly ordering impressive dishes one after the other, but Hitler placed an order for barley tea and a pheasant (considered a peasant’s meal by standard). When he was questioned as to why he would order something like this in something as grand as a world leader’s congress, he replied,
“I don’t smoke when my people cannot smoke, and I cannot eat when my people are going hungry.”
He wasn’t evil for its own sake, let’s try to remember that despite the countless murders, but for a moment, he did actually believe he was doing something for the good of his countrymen.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE
No, he’s right. Hitler, though extremely wrong in his views, did everything for what he thought would better the lives of his people. It was wrong. It was disgustingly, horribly wrong. But he did not do it because it was evil and he was evil. He did it because he believed it would help Germany and those who needed a better life. Those who don’t understand or even try to understand the human brain will always label men like him as ‘evil’ because it is easier to accept. But he wasn’t ‘evil.’ He felt love and loyalty and responsibilities. He simply took these aspects and morphed them into a twisted, violent thing.
Tumblr is probably the only place we could have this conversation and not be lynched.
All the awards for this post.
To put into context, Germany was one of the countries heavily affected by WW1. The country was riddled with the debt of war, the Treaty of Versailles was unfair for them and pretty much fucked them over, the crazy hyperinflation in their economy… The people were angry and suffering from a war they were (in a basic view) dragged into. For all the horrible things Hitler commanded, at the root of those actions was a belief that it was all for the benefit of Germany, for its people, to bring them out of their suffering toward a better future.
I’m not saying Hitler’s actions are forgivable or that people shouldn’t be mad for what he and those under his command (Himmler!) did, but people aren’t black and white. And since history is basically a record, or a story, of the developments and actions of humans over the ages, it would be a mistake to view the characters who play their parts in it so one-dimensionally.
Also he might have been on meth (as medicine) during the entire war so he made extreme decisions kind of really quickly
Amongst spoon-feeding us with information, one thing that most schools fail to teach is how to think. How does one think rationally and at the same time, outside the box? Well, Daniel Dennett, being one of the world’s most foremost thinkers himself has seven top tips for thinking and arguing.
1.) Use your Mistakes. In his own words, our past’s stupidity must be appreciated as a new pillar of wisdom. We are privileged to be the only species that can think about the mere act of thinking and contemplate on our past so use this ability wisely.
2.)Respect your opponent. A successful critical commentary does involve pointing out contradicts and logical flaws but you should also list any points of agreement and mention what you’ve learnt from your opponent.
3.)The “Surely Klaxon”. According to Dennet, the use of certain words such as “surely” in any argument is as good as a weak point. In other words, if the person was really sure that the readers or audience agree, then the word wouldn’t be used.
4.) Answer rhetorical questions. We all know that rhetorical questions are not meant to be answered so you can imagine how much it would put your opponents out of their place if you did indeed answer them. So whenever you come across a rhetorical question, try to find an unobvious answer in your head.
5.)Employ Occam’s razor. Very simply; do not go with the unnecessarily complicated argument when you have a simpler one that works.
6.)Don’t waste your time on rubbish. Indeed, A lot of undistinguished work exist in every field whether it is science or art. Either go after the good stuff or leave it alone.
7.) Beware of deepities. This is any statement that appears to be true and meaningful but is only so because of its ambiguous nature. These can be difficult to pick up and analyze but great thinkers must always be wary of them.
That was just a brief summary but to read about all the seven tips in detail click on the image.
Why did I make this?
Did they send me hipsters when I asked for muns
You’re a grammar-less, pale, pathetic lot! And you haven’t got a clue!
How can I make a role-player out of you
Tranquil as a blogger but a fangirl within!
Once you find your muse you are sure to win!
//Oh my glob. I can’t even— the feels—
“Your unsuited for, my smut and gore,
so pack up, get fluff, your through.”
How could I make a role-player out of you?
(Be a mun)
We must be swift as
the coursing shipper
(Be a mun)
With all the force
of a great headcanon
(Be a mun)
With all the strength
of a raging fandom
Mysterious as the
dark side of the muse!
If you didn’t sing this, I am judging you.
GUYS I FOUND IT
i sung it twice
think twice Yahoo—
For the love of God, signal boost this if possible.
If you don’t get this reference, you’re too young for tumblr.
are you fucking kidding me pixar puts out a movie ever year a baby would get this reference
it’s not pixar it’s a reference to that time in 1994 when lamps became sentient humanoids
many were lost that day
It was a grim day for mankind. My parents took refuge in a cave and thus saved us from certain death; we lived close to a lamp factory at the time and the surrounding region was utterly devastated in the conflict.
My brother fought one off using only an egg whisk and a pogo stick.
Only 90s kids remember the Lampocalypse
My father still has the scars from where one stole his kidney
Ironically, it was a dark time.
SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!
- Let’s try and get 100k notes
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadilAs much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
reblogging again for this ^
I like tumblr the way it is :’(
I remember posting somewhere once in a thread about why girls aren’t exploited in animation anymore where some guy said, “all the disney girls are drawn to be generally attractive, but I don’t think there are any eye-candy men… or are there? Are there any Disney men that lots of girls like?” and I mentioned Roger. Tons of girls replied agreeing with me and the original guy was like “wait, Roger? from 101 Dalmatians? What’s attractive about him, he’s tall and lanky and has a big nose, he isn’t muscley at all! Wouldn’t you all prefer Gaston or something? Or do you girls think his big nose is indicative of something else?” and I was like “no, you idiot, he’s a silly, goofy guy who likes animals and can play a bunch of instruments, that’s why he’s attractive. What’s the matter with you? Gaston, seriously?”
This is why we need more girls in animation. And more guys like Roger apparently.
