“[I]t is actually more expensive to be poor than not poor. If you can’t afford the first month’s rent and security deposit you need in order to rent an apartment, you may get stuck in an overpriced residential motel. If you don’t have a kitchen or even a refrigerator and microwave, you will find yourself falling back on convenience store food, which—in addition to its nutritional deficits—is also alarmingly overpriced. If you need a loan, as most poor people eventually do, you will end up paying an interest rate many times more than what a more affluent borrower would be charged. To be poor—especially with children to support and care for—is a perpetual high-wire act.” Reblog this forever. I’ll never forget how many of my students in the school I worked in with a 100% free and reduced lunch rate lived in residential motels and how many of them relied on the school to get breakfast and lunch and how often those were their only meals for the day. Or how my friends who have older cars have to spend so much money repairing them but an older car was all they could afford in the first place. And how you literally have no safety net because if you already fixed one thing on your car and something else goes a week later, you’ve already spent the little bit of buffer you saved up. (via raindropprincess) “The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money. (via moniquill)
Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.
But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that’d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years’ time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.
This was the Captain Samuel Vimes ‘Boots’ theory of socioeconomic unfairness.”

what do you do at hogwarts if you start your period?
like do you go and see madam promfrey? or your head of year? because i’m just trying to imagine the slytherin girls going snape and asking for tampons
I do not have the power within me to not reblog this.
NBC has ordered more episodes of Marry Me!
TWO people texted me to tell me this and suggested I write a spec for it (as they had seen my Happy Endings spec and are as annoyed as me that it will never see the light of day) and YEAAH I AM GONNA SO SPEC THIS!
This makes me very uncomfortable.
2886Cary Grant. What a fine, fine man he was. Wish I could go back in time and do filthy things to him. And him to me.
“"Menstrual pads have been mentioned as early as the 10th century, in the Suda, where Hypatia, who lived in the 4th century AD, was said to have thrown one of her used menstrual rags at an admirer in an attempt to discourage him"”
- if you don’t think history is a truly inspiring subject you’re wrong (via fashiondisastercecil)
Moffat and GAtiss and Thompson write first drafts that over-explain and just….GOSH!
THAT IS AWESOME.
I’m so excited to know that. To know their scripts are…wordy and in need of a good edit.
I know everyone is creaming over all the other stuff but for me…my god….I (am making it about myself) am so excited to know….that even people who I think are great writers are still….writers.
NO ONE churns it out perfectly and well-paced on the first go. NO ONE.
THAT IS A FUCKIN BRILLIANT AS FUCK THING.
I am so happy.
Right?? The thing I really love seeing (and why I’m saving it for when I can really savor it) is what they jettisoned, and how that made a difference - the process. :)
I KNOOOW! What a difference. As I’m reading them all I’m thinking is “ooo you didn’t need that line. ” and “That would have cut the tension in like half there” and “Good move to change that bit. Upped your game on the next scene”
I just love it. Hell I wasn’t gonna buy the book but now I just sooo want to read them all gleefully and make notes for myself. Hell you could teach a fuckin class on this alone. I might take it to my writing group. Oh yes. These are good things to learn from.
I haven’t stopped laughing at this all day please

That was the most brilliant Supernatural takeover I’ve seen in a while.
Happy 12th Birthday Once More, With Feeling

i have no idea where this soup in the fridge came from and it has no label but i’m going to eat it.
i still have no idea what this soup is, but i intend to eat more of it.
when someone asks you ‘what are you eating’ and you respond ‘i have no idea’ while continuing to eat, the other person is apparently alarmed.
gosh i hope this is butternut squash soup. like sincerely. profoundly.
UPDATE: it was butternut squash and apple soup, THE CRISIS IS OVER.
THE HEIGHT DIFFERENCE THO

What Sherlock thinks is, On the day I die, be it in a dirty alley at forty or in my bed at eighty, the last thing I will remember is tonight, the way you looked at at me on the snowy pavement, cheeks pink with the cold, breath puffing in frosty white clouds, your heart in your eyes and snowflakes in your hair. I will remember that single perfect moment in my life, that moment I knew I had everything I ever wanted, and whatever happens next, I will die content.
What he says is simply, “Marry me.”
I have been on my new job for less than a week and I’m already creating documentation and inserting fandom references in things
In the follow earnings statement, Sherlock Holmes’ company (Consulting Detectives N’ Bees) has made a net profit of 1.68 million.
“One of the first items sold on [eBay] was a broken laser pointer for $14.83. Astonished, Omidyar contacted the winning bidder to ask if he understood that the laser pointer was broken. In his responding email, the buyer explained: “I’m a collector of broken laser pointers.””
