Girl is pioneer at quarterback for Florida High School

That first picture just fills me with such joy and a feeling of hope.

HEY ERIN HEY!

It’s the last picture that gets me. Her eyes are off reading the defense, because she’s not handing off to the RB, that’s a fake. She’s the QB and she’d doing her goddamn job and she’s doing it well. GET IT GIRL.

“Everybody says, ‘What happens when she gets hit?’ ” Gatewood said. “This isn’t a knock on Erin, but she’s bigger than 10 kids on my team. I have a wide receiver that weighs 25 pounds less than her. And the pads she wears are the same as the pads he wears.”

theres a post going around “imagine a high school romance movie about a girl who works her ass off to play on the football team and eventually becomes the quarterback and she dates one of the cheerleaders” well thats this girls life basically. the cheerleader in the top picture is her girlfriend.

this makes me so happy, it’s ridiculous

Every time I read this I get real happy.

re-use of salad/lettuce hearts :)

  1. first cut it out from the leaves

  2. then cut a little from the edge but not too much

  3. then cut it into a cube-similar - cut as less leaves and material away as possible but leaves do get moldy and then the whole heart will get moldy too and die

  4. put it in wet soil so that just the tip looks out

  5. put on a plastic cup or something similar to get a high humidity around the sprouting meristem - don’t forget to give it fresh air here and there like every 2-3 days

  6. put the pot to a warm location and wait

  7. after a few days - 2 weeks the new plant will sprout

enjoy your new growing salad plants :)
I’ve tried it and it works with iceberg salad, romaine lettuce, butterhead, lollo rosso salad actually with every lettuce/salad with a heart

Wow

For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.

So collapse.
Crumble.
This is not your destruction.

This is your birth.

so my french teacher showed us this really clever short film about a world where gender roles are reversed and how feminism is still needed. its in french but theres subtitles and its really easy to follow so if you have a few minutes i definitely think you should watch this!!

When the roles are reversed, it’s pretty easy to see where we go wrong in our way of treating people.

wow

Mwahaha here that is

Anonymous asked: Poor people do not have $7. I went to a food bank today with my mom and we sat there for 2 hours waiting to be next in line. It's really hurtful for you to toss around words like that. I understand that your meal plans are for a fee but if someone can't afford it, there's no reason to flaunt it about. Judging by your attitude, and I may be wrong, I'm pretty sure you have never known or felt real want/need. Until you do, you shouldn't be the authority on telling the poor what they can afford.

alexiafit:

Lol that doesn’t make any sense at all. If people can’t afford enough food, they would be skinny or malnourished and probably underweight or close to that, not overweight due to excess food? So then why would they want to lose weight in the first place and need to buy a meal plan? It’s a total oxymoron my frrrrriend, which makes 0 sense lmao

You’re actually wrong here. There are higher rates of obesity among the poor partially because clean, healthy food and fresh produce tends to be more expensive than filling, high sugar, overproduced cheaper foods. White rice and white bread are more expensive than healthier alternatives. While there is a push to allow people to use food stamps at farmers markets it is still cheaper to feed a family of four off the dollar menu. Not to mention that people below the poverty line tend to not have time to prepare healthy meals for various legitimate reasons.

I’m not a misandrist, but men simply have a lower sex driven than women. You just have to look at the beauty industry to see it. Men’s sex drives are so low that heterosexual women have to diet, put on make up, wear high heels and shave just to hope to get a man to be attracted to them, whereas women require men to put much less effort in how they look to be attracted to them.

THIS IS MARRIAGE!!

Thats right!

Permission to be a bad ass. Nod.

He looks back at the guy like, “SEE THAT? SHE SAID YES. YOU’RE SO FUCKED.”

Like, guys. Sparta was so kick ASS sometimes when it came to women. Spartan women were given these small knives so that if their husbands came home and tried to hit them or assault them, they had a weapon within reach. That weapon was for CUTTING THEIR HUSBANDS’ FUCKING FACES so that when he went out in public everyone would know he was an asshole, abusing jerkface and they would publicly shame him.

I DID NOT KNOW THAT THAT IS GREAT

LET’S JUST TALK ABOUT SPARTAN WOMEN FOR A SECOND.

In Sparta, women could own land and were considered citizens. THAT IS A HUGE BIG FUCKING DEAL. Why? Because that was RARE AS FUCK and there are lots of places TODAY where women don’t even get that much.

Divorce was totally fine, and a woman could expect to keep her own wealth and get custody of the kids because paternal lineage wasn’t very important. And it didn’t make her a pariah! She could totally remarry, no big deal at all.

Spartan women participated in some fuckin’ badass sporting events, too. And because they were expected to be as physically fit as the Spartan menfolk (who all had to serve compulsory military duties, btw, and couldn’t marry until they finished them at thirty) they didn’t have time for lots of swishy dresses. So they wore notoriously short skirts. According to some accounts, their thighs were visible at all times. HOLY SHIT. 

Also, In Sparta men only got their names on their graves if they died in battle. And women? Women only got their names on their graves if they died in childbirth. THE SPARTANS COMPARED CHILDBIRTH TO FUCKING BATTLE AND IT WAS VIEWED AS A GODDAMN BADASS AND HONORABLE WAY TO GO OUT.

FUCKING SPARTAN WOMEN. THIS DUDE HAD FUCKIN’ BETTER MAKE SURE SHE’S COOL WITH WHATEVER HE’S DOING, IF HE KNOWS WHAT’S FUCKIN’ GOOD FOR HIM.

^^ I throughly enjoyed the history lesson dashed with the colorful adjectives.

I mean, he knew she was Cersei… lol

And the women were trained the exact same way as men were. As children they were equals ; they were not allowed to wear clothing until a certain age and at that point they were sent away to a training camp until they were 18. It was only the men who were sent into the wilderness for an extra two years to ensure their strength for battle. 

Plus the women could marry whomever they pleased and the men weren’t allowed to live with the women in their house until she said so. And they were tough in Sparta but also all about family. To have male offspring was good luck, to have female offspring was an honour. 

This part of the movie was true; King Leonidas really did kill a man because he insulted his wife and he always ensured that he had his wife’s approval. And while Leonidas was away in battle she did rule Sparta on her own. 

Sparta knew what was up. 

You know things are bad when the modern world is not as up to speed on ethics and equality as a pre-historic civilization.

Favorite looks from Jonathan Simkai FW14. He drew inspiration from classic “old school” leather cigar boxes through a futuristic lens (read: modern cuts on luxe fabrics). I’m into it.
