never forget that australias first ever winter olympics gold was won because the guy was coming dead last and everyone in front of him fell over
It gets even better when you realize that was his entire strategy.
"I was the oldest bloke in the field and I knew that, skating four races back to back, I wasn’t going to have any petrol left in the tank. So there was no point in getting there and mixing it up because I was going to be in last place anyway. So I might as well stay out of the way and be in last place and hope that some people get tangled up."
this is how i get through life
Okay but let’s get something straight: Mary didn’t just try to kill Sherlock once. Right here, at this very moment, we have a proof she would do it again. I really don’t know if there’s anything else you need to know about her.
Personally I think it’s fucking fantastic that there’s at least one person on the show who’s entire world doesn’t revolve around Sherlock. Loving him, hating him, antagonizing him or admiring him. I mean I know the show is named after him and he’s the star of his own story but there was a post running around not too long ago that I really liked and it talked about how if we ‘weren’t so far up Sherlock’s ass we’d see that’ he’s a bit of an unrepentant dick. I mean we do see it, but we don’t really register it all the time. Because so far the show has basically been setting up how amazing Sherlock is and how jealous other people are of him, or how he’s mistreated and misunderstood. We’re forced to sympathize with him and we aren’t exposed to many differing points of view. Even his enemies are attracted to him (or his brilliance). But art imitates life and no matter how fantastic you are (or like to think yourself) you will never be the end all be all of creation. I think it’s doubly fucking awesome that the person on this show who is teaching Sherlock that lesson (and reminding us, the viewers of it) happens to be a woman.
Jesus was a homeless Palestinian anarchist who held protests at oppressive churches, advocated for universal health care and redistribution of wealth, before being arrested for terrorism, tortured and executed for crimes against the state, now go ahead and explain to me why he’d vote conservative. I’ll wait.
Good god has my blog changed a lot
I was just going through my inbox and reading some messages from allllll the way back and I realized that I used to talk to you guys a lot more than I currently do. I think whenever I saw someone having a bad day on my dash or if they did a thing I found even remotely interesting, I’d slide them a message and most of the time you guys responded so I think I’m going to try that again?
Even though a lot of the people I was talking to at that time are now deactivated or no longer following me or I’m no longer following them, it’s a practice I’d like to pick back up.
I find it interesting that the photos of me that gather the most attention are those that are taken from “unflattering” angles. I wonder if people are trying to find love for themselves when I flaunt my belly, my hips, my thighs. I wonder when I gave myself permission to do so. Years ago I would have been horrified to post a picture that had not been liquefied or narrowed. Now I am broader, and so are my horizons- my ability to see that a line is not broken because it is thicker.
One of these days I will learn to stop dressing my body like it is an apology, but right now all I know is this: I only feel beautiful when I dance. So I will dance. Unapologetically, unabashedly, until the rest of me catches up with the flight I have started.
This is beautiful.
I’m so conflicted. Like on the one hand I am SO FUCKING PROUD of Quvenzhané Wallis and I just KNOW she’s going to go so far and she kind of embodies the hopes and dreams of every aspiring young black actress. But on the other hand, she’s fucking 10 and it shouldn’t be her responsibility to pioneer and play ambassador for black women everywhere.
