Ask me anything
I love all (most) things British.
I get obsessive over things and tumblr has become one of those. It's a good thing I didn't want a life anyways.
Just remember. There is no such thing as a fake geek girl.
There are only fake geek boys.
Science fiction was invented by a woman.
Specifically a teenage girl. You know, someone who would be a part of the demographic that some of these boys are violently rejecting.
yo mary shelley wrote frankenstein in 1818 and isaac asimov was born in 1920 so you kinda get my point
My dad tried to make the argument that Jesus was white today. He also said, “Next you’re going to tell me that Santa isn’t white even though he’s originally from Germany.” *spoilers* SANTA ISN’T REAL!!! So that argument is invalid. Santa could be any color we want them to be.
My dad wants to work for Fox News. Are they hiring?
You know what I hate? When TV shows/movies use the words “real parents” and “biological parents” interchangeably when dealing with adopted children/etc. Just because someone gives birth to you doesn’t make them your “real” parent. They could be, that’s not what I mean, but biological =/= real. Those words have different meanings. Adoptive parents can be just as, if not more, real than biological parents. And using the word “real” makes it seem like there are a set of parents that are “fake”.
Use the term biological or birth. Wouldn’t that make more sense anyway? Going around saying “My real parents blahblahblah” just confuses me because in my head the parents that raised you would be the “real” ones.
Also, after not knowing the birth parents for your whole life (whether that’s 10 or 20 years) you wouldn’t just automatically start calling them “mom” or “dad”. You’ve called someone else that for your whole life so, even if that person is horrible, you wouldn’t just start randomly calling another person that. That word has meaning behind it, whether it be good or bad so it’s just stupid writing in my opinion.
happy // pharrell williams
clap along if you know what happiness is to you
clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do
never going to get over that pharrell basically managed to make “if you’re happy and you know it clap your hands” into a cool song
