I’m half expecting Facebook to start telling you when people have seen that you’ve seen their messages.
you guys should get me $5 credits by signing up for Amazon Student. It’s actually great, you get free two day shipping for 6 months. All you gotta do is sign up with the link I provide and I get a $5 credit. All you need is a .edu email account. You should set it to not automatically upgrade you to pay after the first 6 months though. But yes. Pls. Sign up here: link. I know you want to.

Casting appreciation gif.
This seriously pisses me off because TWO men of the “correct” ethnicity/race were asked to play the role of Khan. I don’t remember their names because this back when Into Darkness was in casting yo but they BOTH DECLINED.
So there’s a HUGE difference between “well, we asked the best in the business and they both said no, so we should go with another actor of the ‘incorrect’ race who is also very well suited for the role” and doing what the Hunger Games did which is literally only let white girls audition for Katniss.
When actors decline there is fuckall you can do. It’s shitty, no doubt, that Khan ended up being white, but BC did a great job in the role, while knowing he was third choice. I won’t begrudge him for taking it, and I won’t begrudge the casting crew for going with him after their best actors declined.

how does one tell a boy that one likes him
I am a boy and have a foolproof plan for this:
- text them and start playing one of those 20q games
- if they start being a dodgy fella drop em
- if they ask “You like anyone?”
reply Yeah, you.
- If they give you a negative reply sayin they dont like you back then just correct yourself to “*Yeah, you?”
dude that is genius
slow clappin’ it out.
can we just take a moment to appreciate everything about this show
I think I like Tyrion
He’s not a terrible character.
Although seriously, Game of Thrones has had zero PoC. I don’t understand how people don’t think that’s weird as hell. There are like 7 different environments, 400 different lords/land areas or whatever, and there have been 1.5 PoC, if even that. What the actual fuck?
