i seem to have found myself stuck between extraordinary dreams and a life i could only dream of. i can't really put my finger on it, but between the colors, the sounds, the people, the places, and the feelings, i've managed to find a niche where i wouldn't mind taking my coat off and staying for coffee. i want the momentum from my dreams to carry me as far as my heart will go. if we don't take each day as it comes, we tend to lose control of the small things.
Everything has an answer.
Losing track of time makes time cease to exist.
Anonymous said: 1 out of every 4 women in this country are raped and you say rape culture doesnt exist. Fuck you.
There are 161,000,000 million women in the United states.
If that statistic were true that would mean 40,250,000 women have been raped.
According to the FBI, In 2012, 66,582 rapes occurred in the United States.
Which means that .041% of women have been raped.
If you want to include the “90% of rapes go unreported” argument, that would bring the number of rapes up to roughly .07%
So with the 66,582 being bumped up by 90% of its value, it now stands at 126,505 in a year. That makes .078% of women are raped. A little off the 25% mark there
40,250,000/126,505 = 318.16.
At that rate, it would take 318 years, 1 month, and about a week for 40 million rapes to occur.
So this statistic is correct, if you started counting in 1696. About the time they just got done burning witches and 80 years before Washington told the king to stick it. Keep in mind the population of the US didnt even hit 40 million till around the civil war. And there wouldn’t even be roughly 40 million women until around 1905.
Also, fuck you.
Anonymous said: Hi, I have three questions for you. 1.) Why do you support the state of Israel? 2.) Do you believe that it's just for Israel to exist? 3.)Should Israeli soldiers be tried for war-crimes? I know these are kind of loaded questions, but I always try to understand different views.
1) I know the truth of what is happening.
3) No, unless they actually commit any, but they haven’t. They follow the Geneva Conventions rules of warfare as well as their own high standard of military ethics and restraint.
I think you should check the Geneva Convention again, ‘cause last time I checked attacking UN shelters and other civilian buildings was a war crime
I’m sorry, can you point out exactly where that is specifically stated in the Geneva Conventions, the United Nations Charter, or the Universal Declaration of Human Right? And by the way, the UN chief even stated that they aren’t exactly sure what has happened at the UN School, before you go throwing out accusations that they “attacked” a UN shelter.
Still does not justify the 3000 homes destroyed, or the hospitals.
And before you bring the “Human Shields” thing, let me tell you something: even if Hamas were using Palestinian civilians as human shields (which I doubt), Israel has the responsibility to minimize civilians casualties, and they haven’t.
They fact that they haven’t just gone ahead and nuked Gaza or burned it to the ground is showing incredible restraint if you ask me… No other country would tolerate terrorist assholes firing rockets at their civilians on a daily basis without flat destroying the threat and everything near it.
The intro cards for Futurama have always been one of my favorite parts of the show because people always talk about the old Simpson’s couch gag but this is just pure gold… I mean-
It goes from everything from
and then they made fun of how much everyone reacted to the the infamous ‘dead dog episode’ that I cried about…
And then one time when the show got canceled…
and then when it came back..
you’re missing my favorite one though
