I love how she almost drops it until she smells it and that flashbulb memory hits.

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real … Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit

Notice she says “who” it was and not “what” it was.

Oh I just gotta snuggle my baby bear!

Powerful!

please someone reassure my this is just fuckin  w people right.

this is bullshit what the fuck

Wait y’alls cups are really that small? holy fuck

why the fuck anyone needs 1.3L of coke in one sitting is beyond me but anyway

YOU EXPECT YOUR CHILDREN TO DRINK 700ML DRINKS TO COME WITH THEIR FUCKING HAPPY MEAL??? FUCK OUTTA HERE AMERICA

We have a “Kids” size that is smaller than the small. It’s like an Australian medium (which is the same size as a can of coke btw). Also, in the US all of the sizes cost the same amount. $1. You basically pick based on how much soda you want, not how much you want to pay. Which is excellent…if you want to give an entire nation diabetes. 
Sometimes I get a little frustrated when people talk about how McDonald’s is bad for you and then in the same breath propose going to a local restaurant where they buy a half-pound bacon cheeseburger. The wheat is the same wheat, the meat is the same meat. There’s nothing about McDonald’s that’s intrinsically bad for you except portion sizes, which are just as bad, if not worse, at sit-down service places.
There’s this perception that McDonald’s is junk food simply because it’s McDonald’s and, frankly, I’m starting to think it’s classist. Like, It’s where poor people go, so it must not be substandard.
The only problem with McDonald’s is that when you get a Big Mac Meal with large fries and a coke, you’re getting 1,300 calories set in front of you…and unfortunately it tastes so damn good that you’ll eat the whole thing. 
Oh…another problem with McDonald’s is that to keep their prices low they pay poverty-level wages to, increasingly, adult professional people, but that’s not what I hear people complaining about.

Cans aren’t “Australian medium” (500ml) outside of the US. (I didn’t think they were in the US either…?)

A response to “We don’t need feminism any more”

An opinion I have heard from a minority of my friends is “we already have equality, we don’t need feminism”. Even if this is the case (chaps: ask any woman if she thinks this is true), simple equality isn’t enough to correct society.

Consider a game of monopoly where one player is given $400 every time they pass go, but everyone else just gets $200. Twenty turns later, this person will likely own most of the board.

To make the game fair again, it is not enough to simply give everyone the same amount when they pass go: The unfairly-advantaged player ALREADY OWNS THE WHOLE BOARD.

I don’t know exactly what the fix here is, but simple equality is not enough.

I like how the original title for The Fault in Our Stars is all poetic and then the Norwegians just translated it to “fuck destiny” and I think that’s beautiful

Aw man, I thought for sure this had to be bullshit but nope


Why is it always Norway

Norway, a nation where you can put the word “fuck” on the cover of a young adult novel.

Since the TFIOS movie became available On Demand and for digital download and people can now pause and zoom in and stuff, many people have asked who wrote the pages of An Imperial Affliction that appear in the movie.
I did. Executive producer Isaac Klausner asked me to write four pages (the two you see here and the final two pages of the book) for the movie edition of An Imperial Affliction, so I did. In this passage, Anna is recalling intense pain breaking through her high doses of narcotic pain medication. 
The book that Hazel reads in the movie is just the four pages I wrote printed over and over again hundreds of times. I have a copy of it in my house; it’s my only souvenir from the movie set.

This would be an amazing charity auction piece!
