What was a policeman, if not a civilian with a uniform and a badge? But they tended to use the term [civilian] these days as a way of describing people who were not policemen. It was a dangerous habit: once policemen stopped being civilians, the only other thing they could be was soldiers.– "Snuff" by Terry Pratchett (via youaristocat)

Kate is v. Cool. Maybe next Tcaf around i can actually go up to her table without massive anxiety making me feel like im the most annoying fan ever :/ i probably was pretty alright but i cant help but think i couldve been cooler or whatever.
I pretty much feel that way about every cool person i have said hi to before. But this cute drawing makes me feel like i can move past this consistent feeling of blah someday.
I promise you - unless you are a real creepy weirdo hanging around for 40 minutes or trying to touch my tattoos, you are FINE. I swear I’m less snarky in person than I can be online. My boundaries are there for people who would cross them, not to deter the friendly and excited. Tell me you’re nervous at a show and I’ll tell you I am, too!
And you - yes, you! You’re going to be okay.
yugichrist said: hey you know those photos of trees where it looks like they have a big round human ASS, that's a tree disease right, what's it called
if it’s what I’m thinking of, those are called Burls if you’re murrican or Burrs if you’re from pretty much literally anywhere else
It’s less of a disease in itself and more like a sign of a disease. Usually fungal infections fuck up the tree growth and cause them
People actually steal them sometimes because some of them are super valuable. They make really cool looking carved stuff and are really dense.
what the fuck. they just chop the ass right off a tree and sell it to the tree ass black market. that’s brutal
That’s… Yeah, that’s actually pretty accurate.
People have actually been arrested for it and redwood national park gets blocked off at night because people stealing and selling tree ass on the black market is such a big problem
requesting backup for a 376 in process, that’s right we’ve got a tree ass jacker here
those ass bandits will do anything to get wood
I feel that anyone who believes Romeo & Juliet is about some kind of Great and Timeless Love TM* needs to see this.
WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT THIS TODAY IN MY SHAKESPEARE CLASS.
If you go and actually read what Romeo says to Benvolio in the first scene, you will realize that he is only upset because HE WANTED ROSALINE’S BODY AND SHE SAID NO AND SO ROMEO WAS MOPING AND PITCHING A FIT ABOUT IT. Then, the second he lays eyes on Juliet, he’s basically saying
During the balcony scene, Romeo talks about how he scaled the wall of the garden to see Juliet. That is not romantic. That is disrespectful to her. This is a private area of the Capulet home, and Capulet built the wall around it to protect his daughter. This was a time when a woman’s virtue was the most important thing she owned. If Juliet was found with a man in this very private part of her home, everyone would think she was no longer a virgin, her reputation would be ruined, and it would be much harder, if not impossible, for her father to make a good marriage.
Speaking of good marriages, Count Paris is seen as the bad guy because he “comes between” Romeo and Juliet. Capulet had arranged for Paris to marry Juliet in 2 years time, when she would be 16, in a time when most women were already married and mothers by the time they were Juliet’s age at (almost but not quite) 14. Most fathers would have already had their daughters married by now, but he wants to wait two more years AND PARIS IS OKAY WITH THAT. Not only that, but Paris is young (her father could have had her married to a 60 year old man), titled (he’s a fucking Count), wealthy (again, he’s a count, which means Juliet will have financial stability), and, from what we see of him, he is a very good guy. Capulet could have done a LOT worse in choosing his son-in-law.
Finally, here’s something to consider: Juliet was 13, Romeo was 17. Their relationship lasted 3 days, defied their parents, and ended in the deaths of 6 people.
If I ever hear you say that Romeo and Juliet is the greatest love story ever told, I will bitch slap you.
That is all.
THANK YOU! SOMEBODY FINALLY PUT IT IN WORDS FOR ME
It wasn’t a romance. Shakespeare never wrote romances. It was a fucking tragedy you dumb cunts.

ALSO! The Capulets KNOW ROMEO IS AT THEIR PARTY. And they don’t care, because it’s implied that they actually THINK HE’S A GOOD GUY. It’s speculated that that scene is supposed to imply that THEY WOULD HAVE ACCEPTED ROMEO HAD HE ASKED THEM FOR JULIET’S FUCKING HAND IN GODDAMN MARRIAGE.
