Tibetan Monks living in exile in India flew to Ferguson to show support for Mike Brown and community.
That first noise made me lose my mind
So there’s these two guys I know who always talk and when one talks, the other just crosses his arms then stares. In this picture, the one in the red is talking about trucks, which the one in the blue-gray wasn’t paying attention to. The one in red even asked the one in blue what his favorite truck is.
His response was, “yeah, same.”
Update: Guy in red got sad because a girl made fun of his drawing. Guy in the blue asked him this.
that is very cute
This is so absurdly creepy

This is Duolingo, a language-learning website/app that deserves some serious recognition. It offers over 10 languages for English speakers, as well as courses for non-English speakers around the world, and they’re in the process of adding more.
But wait, I don’t want to do any more schoolwork! Not to worry little one, Duolingo is actually more like a game. You can compete with friends, and earn “lingots” (which are basically Duolingo money) to buy power-ups, extra activities, and bonus skills - like Flirting.
I’m already taking a language, what do I need this for?
It’s not really a secret that most school language courses (in America, anyway) suck and only teach you to speak the language at about a third grader’s level. Which is why Duolingo is so freaking awesome.
Teachers can’t give every student individualized attention, but Duolingo can. If you’re not learning the way you want to or as much as you want to in the classroom, Duolingo is a really great resource. It’s easy, tailored to you, and really effective.
Duolingo tracks your progress and reminds you when you haven’t studied for a while or need a refresher on something. Already semi-fluent in a language? No problem, just take a shortcut to more advanced subjects or test out of the lesson.
The lessons start with the basics (he, she, hello, thank you, etc) and move up to harder stuff. Duolingo focuses on vocabulary first, so you can learn the language and then the grammar that goes with it - much simpler than the system most schools use. It also tracks the number of words you’ve learned and how well you know them.
And you don’t even have to write out the flashcards!
Duolingo is perfect for reviewing everything you forgot over the summer or giving you the extra help you need. And if you’re trying to learn a language on your own, it’s fantastic - you don’t have to create your own lessons. Whether you’re trying to learn your second, third, or fifth language, I seriously recommend Duolingo.
Okay, what else?
Duolingo also has discussion boards, where you can ask for help with a hard lesson, make new friends, watch for updates, and share your achievements.
Even better is the Immersion feature. It won’t send you to Spain or France, but it’s pretty awesome. Duolingo takes real articles from the internet, which users translate. You can translate articles from your native language into the language you’re learning or vice versa, which gives you more experience and makes the Internet more universal.
You can suggest new languages and track Duolingo’s progress in creating new courses. Bilinguals (older than 13) can help to create these courses. Duolingo has a long list of courses that can be contributed to, like Punjabi, Hebrew, and Vietnamese. Oh, and Dothraki, Klingon, Sindarin, and Esperanto.
And the best part? IT’S COMPLETELY FREE.
If you love languages or just want to pass French class this year, USE DUOLINGO. Download the app and practice a language while you wait for the bus instead of playing Angry Birds!

It was just going to be a sketch and then my hand slipped

It’s much more sinister and terrifying with the same female pronouns when you consider that lesbian and bisexual women have actually been burned to death by the church. It adds another chilling layer to this song.
OH MY ACTUALLY GOD! THIS WAS SCARILY AMAZING! I HATE MY SELF FOR LIKING THIS! Just listen. It’s fucking amazing. *dies* I screamed when I listened to it.
God this is better than the original
Welp, I know what I’m gonna have on repeat for a few days.
Had an interview today and got the job! ^_____^ I’m so freakin excited! Not only is it a drastic improvement from my old job in every way but…well, there is no “but!” I’m gonna be working for the state as a Program Technician (level II)! Man, I really hope this works out for me. I’m gonna try my hardest to do the best job I can.
I know I shouldn’t compare but I finally feel like I’m at an even level with my family. Before, I was just the “pizza guy.” Even as a manager, that’s all people really saw me as. My dad has been a trucker for coming up on 20 years, my brother is a correctional officer at a maximum security prison, my oldest sister capped her salary as a dental assistant already, and my older sister is a manager at a clinic. Now, I feel like I can stand next to them without feeling like I’m wasting my time at a job instead of having a career.
