I walked to a deli and got a sandwich to go and a coffee and while I was waiting these two teenage girls ran up and were like OH MY GOD JESSICA HOW ARE YOU and then hugged me and the one whispered “that guy was following you and taking pictures of you” and then they walked home with me and that one guy stopped following me and hONESTLY THIS IS WHAT I AM HERE FOR

Y'all I was at the river just hanging with my friend and these two high school girls run up to us and say “Can you pretend to be our friends? Cause this guy has been following us,” and we sat with them and they called their parents to pick them up and I really want to share that story cause it’s SO SMART and when you’re in crisis your mind can just blank in panic so I want everyone to have that story in the back of their heads. NEVER be afraid to ask strangers for protection!

Once in like ninth grade, I was at Starbucks by myself doing homework and this weirdo came and sat at my table and was telling me how he was a photographer and how he was “scouting” for models and he really liked my “look” and he was trying to ask my name and how old I was and I was panicking bc I didn’t know what to do
Then this middle aged woman came up to us and was like “EMILY there you are sweetie I was looking for you it’s time to go home!” and the guy left really awkwardly and then she told me that she had a daughter my age and asked if I told him my name and I said no and she told me to be safe
Keep an eye out. Protect each other

why do men have to be so goddamn creepy like shit dude

Thank you for those who are spreading the word about bird safety

the-daily-chicken:

If you see my most recent reblog, there is a comic about a dog befriending baby chicks. A cute story, in fact, but there are many dangers when a bird (or any non-mammal) and a dog or cat (once again, any mammal) coincide.

Even if your bird, in this case we will just use chickens as an example, were to become best friends with a dog or a cat, there are many dangers it may face. Cats and dogs have harmful bacteria in their saliva that can hurt and possibly kill your bird.

Even a moment of cuteness can turn deadly.

Moreso, it is vital that you always monitor your bird around other animals. A quick jab of a paw or a snippy bite can easily end the life of a chicken, parakeet, parrot, pigeon, or other bird.

Please, take into consideration the consequences of introducing your pet bird to another animal. Do your research and have a vigilant eye. Even if your animal means no harm, there is always the chance your bird can suffer from great pain.

THE LEGENDARY STORY OF THE TROJAN HORSE DOES NOT INVOLVE THE GREEKS GIVING THE HORSE TO THE TROJANS AS A GIFT. THE GREEKS’ DECEPTION WAS ACTUALLY THAT THEY LEFT THE HORSE AS AN OFFERING TO THE GODDESS ATHENA

IN THE LEGEND, THEY BASICALLY SENT SOMEONE TO TROY TO SAY “THIS HORSE IS FOR ATHENA, NOT YOU, SO OUR RETREAT BACK TO GREECE IS SAFE. DON’T TRY TO TAKE IT. IT WON’T FIT THROUGH THE GATES OF YOUR CITY, SO THERE’S NO WAY YOU DICKS CAN STEAL IT AND PRETEND YOU GOT IT FOR ATHENA. NOT FOR TROJANS.”

AND THEN TROY WAS LIKE “YOU’RE NOT OUR DAD. WE WON THIS WAR AND WE’RE TAKING YOUR STUPID HORSE AS A TROPHY SO WE’LL ALWAYS REMEMBER HOW BAD GREECE IS AT DESTROYING TROY.” 

AND A FEW TROJANS WERE LIKE “THIS IS A TRICK” AND TRIED TO EXPOSE IT AS A TRICK BUT THE REST OF THE TROJANS WOULD HAVE NONE OF IT BECAUSE EVERYONE WAS SWEPT UP IN THE THRILL OF VICTORY, AND ALSO BECAUSE THE GODS KEPT SENDING SNAKES TO STRANGLE ANYONE WHO SAID ANYTHING, BECAUSE THE GREEK GODS HAD NO WORD FOR “SUBTLETY”

THEN AT NIGHT ALL THE GREEKS JUMPED OUT OF THE HORSE LIKE “WE TOLD YOU NOT TO TAKE THE HORSE, WHY ARE YOU SUCH PRIDEFUL DICKS” AND BURNED DOWN THE WHOLE CITY

This makes a lot more sense

I AM SO HAPPY THAT ROAR THE LION BEAR FOUND HIS WAY HOME :)

This is the cutest thing!  i’mm reblog it again!

For all the crap that happens on the net, with something like this, you’re glad it was discovered.

has anyone else noticed there’s a very specific way women interrupt each other in conversation that’s quite distinct from the way men interrupt women in conversation? like, women seem to interject a lot more– not as a silencing tactic, but to show their enthusiasm or agreement, cause they perceive a conversation as kind of collaborative, organic exercise. but i feel like men get really annoyed if you excitedly interject when they’re saying something (most specifically in a debate/discussion context) because they perceive conversation as something combative or competitive and see an interjection as a threat or a challenge. i’ve also noticed men dismiss women’s way of talking as being sort of incomprehensible and nonsensical because of this habit we have of seeming to butt in or finish each others sentences excitably. 

This was actually very interestingly used in Mad Max and was a stylistic choice in the way the wives spoke to each other, or at other people as a collective.

They finished each others sentences, interjected constantly, echoed important points in reverence/understanding/agreement and relied on each other to complete the communication of a thought or a concept to someone outside their circle.  

So like, instead of one of them explaining something, they would all add fragments to form a complete thought.
____

The Vuvalini: What’s there to find at the Citadel?

Max: Green.

Toast: And water. There’s a ridiculous amount of clear water. And a lot of crops.

The Dag: It’s got everything you need, as long as you’re not afraid of heights.

Keeper of the Seeds: Where does the water come from?

Toast: [regarding Immortan Joe] He pumps it up from deep within the earth. He calls it “Aqua Cola” and claims it all for himself.

The Dag: And because he owns it, he owns all of us.
_____
Capable: We are not things!

Cheedo: No!

The Dag: Cheedo, we are not things!

Capable:
We are not things.

Cheedo: I don’t want to hear that again!

Capable: They were her words.

Cheedo: And now she’s dead!

The Dag: Wring your hands and tear your hair, but you’re not going back. You’re not going back to him.
___

Interestingly, the Vuvalini do this as well. 

Everyone else in the movie (including furiosa!) speaks in short definitive statements or exclamations that cannot be piled upon or interrupted. So this was definitely done on purpose. 

its very cool.

 I wonder if this is just a thing in english/western culture or if other groups of women speak to each other like this?

also theirs a bunch of people in the notes fighting about “I HATE GETTING INTERRUPTED”

This isn’t so much a classic “interruption”.  like when someone talks over you to change the subject or say something unrelated or better than what you’re saying and stealing the attention from you,etc.

Its more like the person doing the interruption is expecting you not to really stop talking, or expects you to finish your thought, and is only interrupting to agree/ interject a footnote that is contributory, but not distracting.

So it would look like.

Woman 1 and 2 telling a story to woman 3:


Woman 1
“We sat down and he brought out this really good green tea-
Woman 2: –but it was the powder kind of green tea not the bag kind–
Woman1: –yeah and he brought out these really cool whisks and let us do it ourselves–
Woman 2: and Woman 1 frothed hers so much she had nothing left!
Woman 3: omg did you like it? was it good?
Woman 1 and 2 in unison: Yes! 
Woman 1: We should go again together sometime.
Woman 2- yeah I think you’d really like it too!

 See how Woman 1 is the alpha speaker (the person telling the story) and Woman 2 is the…. hype man? for lack of a better word. Every sentence that Woman 1 says is the story, and woman 2 is adding smaller clarification related details. And when she adds a dynamic detail  “had nothing left!” it is an excited interjection that continues the story, without taking ownership of the topic. 

Woman 3 will walk away from this conversation feeling that Woman 1 was the expert on this situation, but that Woman 2 had a particularly exciting time.

there was a study on this precisely that I read about, though I’ll need my pc to retrieve it. It was about how women tendentially see conversation as collaborative while men tendentially treat it as competitive, thus women usually interrupt to agree/interject to encourage, while men more often interrupt to talk over and/or demonstrate superior knowledge on a topic.

The study was probably Deborah Tannen, she found that women use more of what she called overlapping speech, such as “yup”, “right”, etc. and men are more likely to change the subject. In either the same study or a similar study she found that in the case where someone such as a friend talks about a problem or negative experience or feeling, women are more likely to respond with emotional support and understanding, whereas men are more likely to try to offer practical advice, and this can lead to misunderstandings.

This is the American Gothic. If you’ve never been to the USA, this image sums it up pretty well.

#I feel like I’ve driven past this before#been exactly here#but at the same time I’m not sure

Same, actually.

I had to find out where this really was because looking at it, I felt like I knew exactly where it was. It turns out it’s in Breezewood, PA, and i have never been there, which only serves to highlight the OP’s point.
