But you know a protest to this would be to just repeatedly clean the toilet. Just do it. Pretend you’re in a video game and grind toilet cleaning for points.
water and rewater and rewater the plants. Kill the plants. Drown the plants.
Expose the system. Exploit the system.
21+ full-figured actresses playing 14/15/16 yr old characters rly fucked up my self-esteem and self-image when i was young and made me v insecure
quit casting adults as young characters esp in shows w/ young target audiences?? man it makes undeveloped lil girls feel inadequate that they don’t look like grown women when they’re baby teens
I fully agree with you on why they should cast age-equivalent actors. As I’m sure do most producers, the problem is when you have 15/16 yr old’s making out or waking up in bed together not only would the lawyer’s for the network freak out (child porn) but it would make audiences uncomfortable and they would switch off. So if the want to portray young love?.they have to hire adults.
let’s see tumblr get as excited about this as they did the totally “inclusive” white ~feminine~ rendition
$20 says nope
I like how intimidating they look.
Too awesome not to reblog again.
The scientific method. Use. Use the scientific method. “We may never know.” Bologna. Use the scientific method.
They don’t have that. They have MAGIC.
Where there are patterns of cause and effect, the scientific method has insight. But if they’d started using it we’d all be aparating on fucking Mars by now.
The scientific method isn’t really a great way to determine “hmm how did this baby not die when all those other people did” because what are you gonna do to prove whatever your hypothesis is? Avada Kedavra at a bunch of babies whose parents love them very much? Good luck finding your test subjects, dude.
They could have done autopsies on the victims of the Avada Kedavra curse, compared to autopsies on people who died of natural causes, eventually isolating the true cause-of-death in the bodies of the victims, and then use this new understanding to create an effective counter-curse without anyone needing to sacrifice their life for their child.
The scientific method could also be used to isolate the composition of Phoenix tears, the process by which they spark perfect cellular regeneration, and then synthesize an artificial version with the same effects, essentially rendering all of medical science obsolete.
The “can’t be done” and “we may never know” attitude of the wizarding world has seriously limited their ability to progress as a society.
look okay they’re still using medieval quills over pencils, I think cellular regeneration is still many innovations away in the wizarding world
Yeah but they could make all of those leaps in like a week if they used the scientific method. Bring in like, ten muggle scientists, get them to analyze the shit out of everything, then send them home with some extra spending money and fabricated memories of a science conference out-of-town
Don’t get it mixed up. I’m not just advocating science for the sake of better understanding. I’m a slytherin, so I’m looking for practical applications for the knowledge gained through use of the scientific method.
For example, why is the wizarding world still effectively using carrier pigeons? Sirius Black demonstrated that instantaneous communication is possible via the floo network, so why not fill cigarette lighters with floo powder? This would not only be the wizarding equivalent of a cell phone, but would also allow streamline the process of creating entryways into the floo network.
There are people, like Tonks, who can rewrite their own genetic code with a thought. There are people, like McGonagall, who can completely change species and retain human cognition. There are potions, like Polyjuice, that rewrite your genetic code temporarily, replicating both a person’s nature and nurture. They’ve naturally perfected genetic engineering, but their understanding of how these processes work has left them completely unable to apply it practically.
For example, if they did a little bit of research and development, they could isolate the genes that allow for magical abilities, replicate the process by which Polyjuice Potion works, and synthesize a new potion that allows people like Filch, who were born squibs but desperately want to be wizards, to drink a little bit of potion every day so they’re able to use magic.
Or, if they isolate the genes that allow Tonks and Teddy to rewrite their genetic code at will, as well as the process by which animagi are able to retain their human consciousness while in an animal body, they could easily create an effective treatment for lycanthropy that allows werewolves like Lupin to control the shift between man and wolf and retain control of themselves while in wolf form.
Additionally, if they did research on what contagion causes lycanthropy, they would be so much closer to creating a vaccine that makes it significantly less communicable.
i love when the harry potter fandom gets all sciency
i dont get offended at white people jokes even though im white because:
- i can recognize white people as a whole have systemically oppressed POC in america, which is where i live
- most people when they make white people jokes only mean the shitty white people and i am not a shitty white person
- im not a pissbaby
my white friends that have reblogged this give me life
Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked
Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.
Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!
I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.“

Ask me what kind of porn I’m into,
and I will take you on a magical journey to
What turns me on
is Ginny Weasley in the Restricted Section with her skirt hiked up,
Sirius Black in a secret passageway
solemnly swearing he is up to no good,
'Reinventing Rescuing,' theappleppielifestyle. (via justawordshaker)
Give me all of them.
Instead of waiting in her tower, Rapunzel slices off her long, golden hair with a carving knife, and then uses it to climb down to freedom.
Just as she’s about to take the poison apple, Snow White sees the familiar wicked glow in the old lady’s eyes, and slashes the evil queen’s throat with a pair of sewing scissors.
Cinderella refuses everything but the glass slippers from her fairy godmother, crushes her stepmother’s windpipe under her heel, and the Prince falls madly in love with the mysterious girl who dons rags and blood-stained slippers.
Persephone goes adventuring with weapons hidden under her dress.
Persephone climbs into the gaping chasm.
Or, Persephone uses her hands to carve a hole down to hell.
In none of these versions is Persephone’s body violated unless she asks Hades to hold her down with his horse-whips.
Not once does she hold out on eating the pomegranate, instead biting into it eagerly and relishing the juice running down her chin, staining it red.
In some of the stories, Hades never appears and Persephone rules the underworld with a crown of her own making.
In all of them, it is widely known that the name Persephone means Bringer of Destruction.
Red Riding Hood marches from her grandmother’s house with a bloody wolf pelt.
Medusa rights the wrongs that have been done to her.
Eurydice breaks every muscle in her arms climbing out of the land of the dead.
Girls are allowed to think dark thoughts, and be dark things.
Instead of the dragon, it’s the princess with claws and fiery breath
who smashes her way from the confines of her castle
and swallows men whole.
