My friend told me about a watercolouring techinque where you mix sugar and water and after “painting” the paper with the liquid, you add the watercolour.

I wanted to try it out and took a couple of photos…

Nobody lives here: The nearly 5 million Census Blocks with zero population
A Block is the smallest area unit used by the U.S. Census Bureau for tabulating statistics. As of the 2010 census, the United States consists of 11,078,300 Census Blocks. Of them, 4,871,270 blocks totaling 4.61 million square kilometers were reported to have no population living inside them. Despite having a population of more than 310 million people, 47 percent of the USA remains unoccupied.
Green shading indicates unoccupied Census Blocks. A single inhabitant is enough to omit a block from shading.

About three things I was absolutely positive. First, I had a pokemon. Second, there was a part of me - and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be - that wanted to be the very best, like no one ever was. Third, Gary Oak was unconditionally and irrevocably a douchenozzle.

How old are you? 
“ten”
How long have you been ten?
“…”

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TEN

Misty looked at Ash, his breathing still heavy from carrying her on his bike as fast as he could through the long grass outside of Pallet Town.
“You’re eyes are impossibly huge and black,” Misty said. “Your hair is… incredibly pointy, and doesn’t need product. Your face changes size and shape based on your feelings… and sometimes you speak like - like you’re from the 90’s. You never spend money on anything; you don’t go to the bathroom.”
The silence hung there, thick and heavy like a Snorlax blocking the bike path. 
“How old are you?” Misty asked, not sure if she wanted to know.
“Ten,” Ash replied, with a slight smirk and an almost amused tone.
Misty new that wasn’t true. Ash wasn’t like the other boys her age. He wasn’t even like her older sisters who ran the gym in Cerulean City. He was wiser and his passion was genuine.
Ash didn’t just want to catch them all, he needed to. He was going to be the best there ever was no matter how long it took, which gave Misty this nagging in the back of her mind. She had to know for sure.
“How long have you been ten?” she asked. Her voice weak, knowing full well the answer could change everything she thought she knew.
“A while…” Ash said. His voice trailing off, as if he were losing himself in a flood of memories.
Misty let out a faint gasp. She knew now. She was certain.
“I know what you are,” she declared, as if whatever had been holding her back from accepting the truth, finally let go of her hand and let her fall right down the Diglett hole.
Ash eyes were alive now, flickering like the flame on a Charmander’s tale.
He stared right into her and said, ”Say it… out loud. Say it.”
Misty’s heart was pounding louder than the thud of a Marowak’s bone club attack.
Despite the now eerily silent meadow, she could barely be heard as she whispered, “Pokemon Trainer.”

OH MY LORD HELP


I am giggling maniacally.

This is the Memorial to the Missing and contains over 50,000,000 pennies to represent the lives of each American child abandoned to abortion by a society and a culture that has embraced their destruction. We must prevent the need to add to this memorial. Take a stand. Get involved.
 ”How we treat the least of us defines us.”

"should I use this $500k to help struggling parents and pregnant people or should I put it in a glass box"


But guys. That’s not even the point.50 000 000 children. That’s literally 16% of the population of the US. Given that 18% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, let’s say that we’re actually talking 41 000 000 children. That’s about 13% of the current population of the US. The most common reason a woman aborts is because she cannot afford a baby. Up to 69% of abortions are by women who are at less than 200% of the poverty line for a family of the size they currently have. Making food security and housing stability serious issues. Making it so that, if these children had been born, up to an additional 30 000 000, NOT counting the women in question or their other children, NOT counting additional women who would lose their jobs if they had a baby, would be thrust into low income or poverty.Where is the money going to come from for an additional 10% of the US population to be on public assistance? Who is going to look after the children whose mothers literally cannot look after them?I once did the math. If there was no more abortion in the US, up to 10 000 000 additional children would be in foster care within 18 years.How the fuck is a country that can’t even help the people who are already living in poverty in their country, whose foster children are already underserviced, going to deal with this?You can’t. ALL conservatives, especially the fiscal ones, should wake up every morning and thank whatever higher power they believe in that abortion is legal, and every damn one of them should be working to ensure that it’s widely available and actually safe for the emotional and physical health of the pregnant person.

There is a serious problem with the above argument; That apparently making an easier life for the rest of us matters more than not doing evil.

Furthermore, it makes the assumption that sex is inevitable.  If it’s taken out of the equation then it undoes the entire argument.  Self-control and delaying gratification will keep babies from being conceived in the first place.  Thus there is nothing to kill nor be a “burden” on society or a family if it lives.  Sex is not an irresistible urge.  Even if someone gave into that urge in a moment of weakness, and conceived, it should be Life that is chosen/honored and not death in the name of convenience.

WHO SAID IT WAS OK TO POST SOMETHING THIS HORRIBLE!??!??

My first reaction was ‘Nice thought but there’s no way, Coulson is much younger than…’ and then I stopped mid-thought.

Because you know what.

You know what.

After Steve, the US government had to keep trying to recreate the Super-Soldier Serum.

And who

and who

would be the FIRST DAMN PERSON IN LINE to volunteer?

They told us it never worked again.  And that was kind of true.  They never again recreated the super-strength or the gleaming pecs.  But other things, they got right.  They got the vastly delayed aging.  And the kind of reflexes that make a man able to take out two armed thugs with a bag of flour.  And the talent for leading through example.  And they got the most important part, Erskine’s favorite part: the magnification of moral fiber, taking the loyalty and selflessness of a loyal and selfless man and making him into something spectacular.

Coulson didn’t buy those vintage cards on Ebay.

He’s had them since he was a little boy.

That little boy right there.

AND

in the Thor’s hammer short he is listening to big band/ swing music,

WHICH WAS POPULAR IN THE 1930s

STOP THAT
