Daniele Watts, an African-American actress who has starred in Hollywood films such as Django Unchained, was “handcuffed and detained” by Los Angeles police officers after being mistaken for a prostitute for kissing her white husband in public.
ARE. YOU. FUCKING. SERIOUS.
NICE. It’s good to finally see all of these collected into one post!
So I work at target now and one of my favorite things to do when I hear something in the next aisle fall is to drop what I’m doing and stand at the end of that aisle like so:
Kurt Vonnegut: 16 Rules For Writing Fiction
1. Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.
2. Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.
3. Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.
4. Every sentence must do one of two things — reveal character or advance the action.
5. Start as close to the end as possible.
6. Be a sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them — in order that the reader may see what they are made of.
7. Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.
8. Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To heck with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.
9. Find a subject you care aboutand which you in your heart feel others should care about.
10. Do not ramble.
11. Keep it simple. Simplicity of language is not only reputable, but perhaps even sacred.
12. Have guts to cut. Your rule might be this: If a sentence, no matter how excellent, does not illuminate your subject in some new and useful way, scratch it out.
13. Sound like yourself. The writing style which is most natural for you is bound to echo the speech you heard when a child.
14. Say what you mean. You should avoid Picasso-style or jazz-style writing, if you have something worth saying and wish to be understood.
15. Pity the readers. Our stylistic options as writers are neither numerous nor glamorous, since our readers are bound to be such imperfect artists.
16. You choose. The most meaningful aspect of our styles, which is what we choose to write about, is utterly unlimited.
I thought watermelon just had too much rind and that was wrong until I saw the next gif
I didn’t know that people are mangoes and kiwis any other way. Why the fuck would you do that?
Saw this on facebook the other day and seriously fell in love. This is so freaking awesome and helps eliminate waste. Definitely trying these ways from now on.
You had sex when you’re 14? that’s your choice, you go glen coco, that is okay
You don’t want to have sex till you are married? That takes guts and that is okay
You have a fuck buddy in highschool? Not everyone likes commitment and that is okay
You are asexual and don’t like sex? That’s your sexuality, embrace it, that is okay
But you know what isn’t okay? Shaming people for their sex lives, that is not okay.
Admins Notes// What is said in “What about the rest of the picture” is very accurate, please take it into consideration.
I am also including these notes on gestures/references, their proportions aren’t perfect, but the message rings clear-copying what you see in a photo isn’t the best way to reference as you will learn very little, especially when compared to what you will learn following the featured tutorial above.
Reblogging to get this in circulation again, I strongly feel as if this is one of the most important guides out there, beginning artists could find a lot of value in this (I know I could’ve)

Sharks have amazing immune systems and once the wire is taken off and they can move properly they have a good chance at recovering!
Thank you to the fisherman and good luck to the bull shark!
