why do you hurt me so
oh my god why am i tearing up this is ridiculous
This is super cute! So, to all of you who are sobbing, let me tell you the truth of the matter. Wooly Bear caterpillars are born in autumn/early winter, and live as far north as the arctic. They freeze over the winter months, completely solid. Then, come spring time, they thaw out, and turn into an Isabella Tiger moth. So this little guy/girl is going to have a very happy memory to dream about over the winter. And you can all stop crying now. :)
omg thank you
Wow this has been circulating so long I am so glad we found closure
I love caterpillars so much
You can be actively critical of a thing’s problematic elements and still like the thing.
I met a really adorable robot yesterday.
His name was Jimmy.
If you tell jimmy that you love him he will make happy beeping noises, and if you are angry with him, he will make sad beeping noises. He can also speak and hold basic conversations with you, and sometimes has a Scottish accent. He has facial recognition soft-wear and is being programmed to look at people when they enter a room or come near him, similar to how many people do. And when at rest generally acts human, shifting and looking around a little bit rather than just standing still. Jimmy’s next task will be to keep his balance while stand on one foot.
The past couple weeks I have been so insanely busy that I have had absolutely zero time for and have fulfilled just about none of my personal obligations to myself.

I’M SORRY BUT I CAN’T NOT REBLOG THIS
wow, it’s almost like she was acting like a vapid, emotionless, shallow, dead-inside character in Twilight because, you know, that’s what Bella is.
wow. acting. what a thought.
So this little cigarette right here has sparked a whole new brand of TFiOS hate, much of which is coming from people who claimed to love the book.
Many people are now pointing out how “pretentious” Augustus is, and I can’t help but think, You’re only just now realizing this. He was written to be a seemingly pretentious and arrogant person. The acknowledgement of this is actually highly important because, without it, the book loses the message that a hero’s journey is that of strength to weakness.
Augustus Waters has big dreams for himself. He wants to be known and remembered; he wants to be a hero; he wants to be seen as perfect. But there’s already something standing in his way… He has a disability, and society tells him that a person cannot be both perfect and disabled. So what does he do? He creates a persona for himself. He tries to appear older and wiser than he is. But the pretentious side of him is NOT who he truly is. It’s all an act. (This is evident in the fact that he often uses words in the wrong context.)
And when his cancer returns, we begin to see his mask cracking. The true Augustus begins to bleed through… Hazel even takes notice of this from time to time. And by the time we get to the gas station scene, Augustus is no longer the picture of perfection he was when we met him. The play has been canceled. The actor must reveal himself. And he’s revealed to be a weak, defenseless boy, succumbing to the cancer that is made of him.
THE PRETENTIOUSNESS IS INTENTIONAL. It stands to show Augustus’s journey from flawless to flawed, from strong to weak. It’s the key to understanding that Augustus was the hero he always wanted to be, even if he didn’t realized it.
As Hazel says in one of my favorite quotes, “When surprised and exited and innocent Gus emerged from Grand Gesture Metaphorically Inclined Augustus, I literally could not resist”
So my older brother was in a book store and picked up a book about the difficulties faced by same sex parents in society today when a woman came up and b****ed him out for being “too young to be reading a book about THAT sort of people.” He saw that she was carrying the third Hunger Games Book so he stared her dead in the eyes and hissed “Prim dies.” and walked away and I have never been prouder to have him as my sibling.
This is like the cutest thing ever. It’s from the gif-set I reblogged.
Taking its first steps, and after successfully doing so, the chick goes “Yay!”
It’s so freaking cute.

Reducing an out of context picture of strangers to inspiration porn is so dehumanizing.
