ARIEL YOU STUPID IDIOT YOUR BRA DOESNT MATCH YOUR TAIL YOU LOOK LIKE A FREAKING FASHION CATASTROPHE

BUT NEITHER DOES HER SISTER WITH THE YELLOW TAIL AND GREEN BRA

WHY ARE WE SCREAMING ABOUT THE LITTLE MERMAID?  

I DON’T KNOW BUT IT SEEMED NECESSARY?

WHILE WE’RE AT IT, WHY DO THEY ALL HAVE DIFFERENT HAIR COLOR?  I DON’T KNOW IF THIS IS GENETICALLY POSSIBLE WITH JUST TWO PARENTS!  SOMEONE WITH SCIENCE FIGURE THIS OUT!

ARE THEY ACTUALLY SISTERS? BECAUSE, HAIR COLOR ASIDE THE GENETICS BEHIND DIFFERENT TAIL COLORS (BEING SO DISTINCT) WOULD BE EVEN MORE IMPROBABLE

I MEAN, WE NEVER SEE A MOTHER!  THERE COULD BE MULTIPLE WOMEN INVOLVED IN TRITON’S LOVE LIFE!

PERHAPS THEY’RE HALF-SISTERS? OR MAYBE THEY DYED THEIR HAIR? COULD IT BE POSSIBLE THAT THEY DYED THEIR TAILS AS WELL?

I’M PRETTY SURE ALL OF THOSE HAIR COLORS COULD COME FROM TWO PARENTS. LIKE, IF TRITON HAS BRUNETTE AND REDHEAD ALLELES AND THE MOM HAS BLONDE AND REDHEAD ALLELES THIS IS TOTALLY POSSIBLE. AND IF WE ASSUME THAT TAIL COLOR IS CONTROLLED SEPARATELY FROM HAIR COLOR I FAIL TO SEE AN ISSUE. MERMAIDS COULD HAVE.. THEY COULD EVEN BE CODOMINANT. SO THEY’RE ALL EITHER RED DOMINANT OR BLUE DOMINANT. DIFFERENT COMBINATIONS OF EITHER RED OR BLUE ALLELES COULD ACCOUNT FOR ALL OF THEM. THERE.

Only on tumblr will you see a discussion about the science behind physical traits of characters in a Disney movie

YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE SCREAMING GET WITH THE PROGRAM

iTS BACK

BUT WE DO SEE THE MOTHER FOR A BRIEF TIME RIGHT BEFORE THE NET GETS THROWN ON THEM IN ARIEL’S BEGINNING AND SHE IS A REDHEAD SO MAYBE SHE HAD BLONDE ALLELES

I’ve put together a simple chart that explains the various ways you should and shouldn’t summon a waiter over to your table, and the service you’re likely to receive accordingly.

Because if one more middle aged, obnoxious asshole goes “hey you!” and snaps their fingers at me, I WILL snap said person’s neck.

I waitressed my way through college and one night this guy yells at me “Oi! you with the tits!” and my co-worker Matthew walked up to him and said “yes?”

Yup. I’m still only hostessing at my current job, but there was an obnoxious guy today who kept demanding to be seated (even though we were clearly busy- at lunch time- on a Sunday) and at one point he was like, “There’s an empty table right there- do you want me to do your job for you?” And. Stop. You have NO idea how restaurants work. Just because a table is free doesn’t mean you can sit there or that the server in that section isn’t swamped and can’t handle another table right now. I wasn’t prepared to take that kind of attitude from him, so I smiled politely and told him there were parties waiting before his and sat three other parties in various sections (two of which had come in after his) and then walked away, ignoring him.

No regrets.

I question why “excuse me” gets a fake smile. When I say that I’m literally just trying to be polite

OK SOME REALLY SERIOUS SHIT IS HAPPENING IN NORTH KOREA

According to South Korean newspapers, last week the North Korean government PUBLICLY EXECUTED 80 people in 7 cities for watching South Korean/Western shows, movies, and videos, “pornography,” or possessing a Bible.

Apparently people’s attitudes and conformance are changing SO THIS IS HOW THE GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO SUPPRESS DISOBEDIENCE

They allegedly herded 10,000 innocent civilians into a stadium where they were FORCED TO WATCH THE EXECUTIONS BY MACHINE GUN FIRE

THIS IS HONESTLY SOME HUNGER GAMES SHIT HAPPENING IN REAL LIFE RIGHT NOW

back the fuck up

There’s another story that I like about a Chinese general who had to defend a city with only a handful of soldiers from a huge enemy horde that was in all likelihood going to steamroll the place flat within hours of showing up.

So when said horde did arrive, they saw the general sitting outside the city’s open gates, drinking tea. The horde sent a couple of emissaries over to see what was what, and the general greeted them cheerfully and invited them all to come and take tea with him.

The horde decided that this was a scenario that had “MASSIVE FUCKING TRAP” written all over it in beautiful calligraphy and promptly fucked off.

Whoever that general was, he was clearly the Ancient Chinese equivalent of Sam Vimes.

did he just invite us over for tea nah man i’m out

That last story was General IRoh of the Fire Nation, wasn’t it?

My mom got called on to read aloud in class and came across the word ‘island’ and pronounced the s (is-land) and the whole class laughed at her and the teacher told her she was stupid.  She grew up hating reading and has literally not read any books, newspapers, magazines, etc. since my sister and I were younger and then she only read us children’s books because she ‘had to.’  So like, don’t do this.

the same also applies to people who don’t speak english as their first language, people need to fucking realize that they can actually speak more than one language. i am pretty certain people who make fun of others when they speak or mispronounce, or make fun of their accent, cant even learn a fucking language independently. like that person speaks spanish/french/another language and can actually speak and read english, but how about you basic bitch, can only speak english so stfu

I always get mad for being made fun of for knowing big words I cannot pronounce. So I talk like a 10 year old out of sheer embarrassment so I won’t get teased.

I  do that to. I know the word. I know what it means, but I have no idea how it’s pronounced. then people laugh. even when they know what I meant.

The internet just changed: Net Neutrality is dead.

Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee. [1] The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.

We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.

We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. [2]

This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

"oh, please. you can’t REALLY be in a great mood. there are people out there who just got raises. people just got married. people are being reunited with their families right now. how dare you say you’re happy."

The equivalent of someone saying you can’t be sad because other people have it worse than you.
