it’s not a fanfic until the dress hugs her curves perfectly, his eyes scan the crowd and find her and their tongues battle for dominance
AU where Morgana puts together Merlin’s hopeful looks and hesitations when she questions him and comes up with magic and she demands that he tells her everything he knows and they practice magic together in secret and giggle over tripping up Arthur and Morgana never becomes evil bc Merlin keeps her vindictive side in check and Merlin is less reckless bc Morgana knows how to plan and neither of them feels alone or lost
I AM FUCKING DEAD. SO I WAS HAVING TROUBLE DOWNLOADING THE SIMS 2 THING THAT’S BEEN GOING AROUND SO I CONTACTED THEIR LIVE CHAT SUPPORT FOR HELP. WELL THE PERSON WANTED MY INFO AND FOR ME TO ANSWER THE SECURITY QUESTION I SET UP SO THEY COULD PUT THE GAME IN MY COLLECTION.

Legend of Korra has a main protagonist that is a women and a women of color at that, and lets face it there aren’t many of those. Recently though, lok has been going to only digital, meaning episodes will only be viewed online; personally the joy that comes from watching the episodes online is great and i don’t want to lose this joy. I have a slimmer of hope though; what if the ratings for Korra suddenly spiked up for this episode on Friday? Could nick decide to have the show come back on air? I say fandoms unite anyone from any fandom help us bring back our show. Show Nick that lok is an amazing show, and that it deserves to be on air over spongebob.
Please we need this to spread, make this the episode with the highest viewer rating ever. IT AIRS THIS FRIDAY AT 8:00 PM EASTERN STANDARD TIME.
Use the hashtag #savekorra on twitter and instagram, make it spread!!
GO GO GO!!!!
Dakarai Molokomme, a 15-year-old starving child from a small village in Zimbabwe, has just told Madonna, one of the most famous pop stars in the world, to go and f*** herself, the local media are reporting exclusively.
“Yes, it’s true, I told Madonna to go f*** herself. Do you want to know why?” Dakarai asked. “It’s the same thing every time with these snobby rich Americans. Every once in a while they come to show us their support for the so-called eradication of poverty by adopting a child from a starving family, but they actually do more harm than good. Transracial international adoptions are part of the white savior industrial complex,” Dakarai explained.
In further discussions with journalists from the media, the kid stated that “none of the children here actually want to be taken away from their family and friends so they can be displayed as some kind of trophy in the homes of self-righteous singers or actors who want to score some points with the media and Oprah.”
“If they really want to help us, they should get Big Pharma to ship us some anti-retroviral drugs for the AIDS epidemic, or build schools and hospitals. If they don’t want to do that, then they can all go f** themselves!” the child told reporters.
The 15-year-old also stated that he would say the same thing to any one of those American or European “faux humanitarian posers”, except for Bono, whom he said he would also kick in the groin.
“Bono’s efforts to save the African savage from itself prove that the colonial imperative is alive and well,” Dakarai said as he walked with other village children collecting sticks to build a tree fort.
THIS IS THE RAWEST 15 YEAR OLD ALIVE

Our Three (Brain) Mothers
Protecting our brain and central nervous system are the meninges, derived from the Greek term for “membrane”. You may have heard of meningitis - this is when the innermost layer of the meninges swells, often due to infection, and can cause nerve or brain damage, and sometimes death.
There are three meningeal layers: the dura mater, arachnoid mater, and pia mater. In Latin, “mater” means “mother”. The term comes from the enveloping nature of these membranes, but we later learned how apt it was, because of how protective and essential the meningeal layers are.
- The dura mater is the outermost and toughest membrane. Its name means “tough mother”.
The dura is most important for keeping cerebrospinal fluid where it belongs, and for allowing the safe transport of blood to and from the brain. This layer is also water-tight - if it weren’t, our cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) would leak out, and our central nervous system would have no cushion! Its leathery qualities mean that even when the skull is broken, more often than not, the dura (and the brain it encases) is not punctured.
- The arachnoid mater is the middle membrane. Its name means "spider-like mother", because of its web-like nature.
The arachnoid is attached directly to the deep side of the dura, and has small protrusions into the sinuses within the dura, which allows for CSF to return to the bloodstream and not become stagnant. It also has very fine, web-like projections downward, which attach to the pia mater. However, it doesn’t contact the pia mater in the same way as the dura: the CSF flows between the two meningeal layers, in the subarachnoid space. The major superficial blood vessels are on top of the arachnoid, and below the dura.
- Pia mater is the innermost membrane, which follows the folds (sulci) of the brain and spinal cord most closely. Its name means “tender mother”.
The pia is what makes sure the CSF stays between the meninges, and doesn’t just get absorbed into the brain or spinal cord. It also allows for new CSF from the ventricles to be shunted into the subarachnoid space, and provides pathways for blood vessels to nourish the brain. While the pia mater is very thin, it is water-tight, just like the dura mater. The pia is also the primary blood-brain barrier, making sure that no plasma proteins or organic molecules penetrate into the CSF.
Because of this barrier, medications which need to reach the brain or meninges must be administered directly into the CSF.
