I have yet to read The Death Cure, but the first two were pretty awesome…. and a lot weirder than I thought they would be.
Misha interview at BurCon - [x]
Misha you are such a smartass, I love it.
If you don’t like puns or sarcasm then we’ll probably never get along ever.
Avocados - The fats in avocados get a bad rap. Ironically, they’re the part of avocados that are best for you. An avocado a day will lower your risk of heart disease. Plus you’ll get a ton of vitamin E, fiber, folate, potassium and magnesium.
For lunch, have a little home-made guacamole with your tortilla chips. Or, spread avocado on your sandwich in place of mayo. It’ll add a sweet, smooth texture that the white stuff just doesn’t have.
Or, slice avocados thin, coat them in Panko bread crumbs and pan fry them. They make a delicious french fry-like treat that’s great as a side.
Avocados are just so wonderful, you have no idea. I eat them just about every other day or few days when I have a smoothie for breakfast (use them as a yogurt substitute and add whatever fruit, sweetener, or beverage you want; they make smoothies so thick and creamy!), they’re so healthy!
Watch the entire “Let It Go” scene from Frozen featuring Idina Menzel performing as Elsa.
If you don’t wanna go see Frozen, this is the best 3:39 of the movie (except the short that plays beforehand). What a jam.
goosebumps every time!
I’ve had this stuck in my head for three days now.
Ugh, I just love Idina Menzel’s voice in this. I really want to see this movie.
This is one of the best covers of the songs.
UPDATE: This petition must get 100,000 signatures by December 24th of this year! Boost this as much as you possibly can and make sure to sign!
In 31 states, rapists are allowed to sue victims they’ve impregnated for custody rights.
There’s a case in Boston, MA right now in which a rapist is taking advantage of this. He pleaded guilty of rape in 2011 and was sentenced to 16 years probation; however, this sentence includes 16 years of family court as well, which the victim must also attend. He’s using this to sue for joint custody of her child and will only withdraw his law suit if he is free from paying any form of child support. This entire sentence seems like much more of a punishment for the victim than it is for the rapist, and for the state to allow such a thing, the victim is suing.
As stated in the court complaint, “Even if the family court ruled in the [victim]’s favor on issues currently in dispute, such as whether the criminal defendant should be granted visitation rights to [her] child, [she] will suffer harm from the constant threat of new issues arising in family court until her child reaches adulthood, including, for example, efforts by the criminal defendant to seek to modify child support orders and enforce his parental rights at the trial court level and on appeal.”
If this woman is forced to attend 16 years of family court with her rapist, she is not only forced to confront a traumatic event that she should never have to deal with again, but she is subjected to the possibility of losing pieces of her child to him over and over again for all of those years. In addition to this constant state of fear and anguish she would face, just by being sent to something considered ‘family’ court—for her and her rapist—she’s being disrespected and her rape undermined by even the suggestion that this is a family situation. By doing this, the law is making felony into family.
In 31 states, rapists are actually given rights instead of having much of anything taken away. In being given these rights, they are being given the chance to further torment the woman and possibly abuse the child. It is not okay to reward rapists and further punish victims, and the ignorance of rape and how our justice system is handling it needs to turn around.
Please sign this petition to ban rapists from being able to sue for custody rights. This issue is so little known, yet so important, and I don’t know any better way of trying to make this change.
HOW ARE THERE LESS THAN A HUNDRED SIGNATURES!?!!
There are only 600 signatures. Even if this doesn’t affect anything, at least we can prove that there are people in this world that understand that this is wrong, that regular people know this is unacceptable. Maybe if we show there’s enough of us it’ll mean something to someone, if only cause they want our vote.
yeah locking this down federally would be a really good thing.
Guys, there’s only 19 days left to get over 98,000 signatures. We can get signatures to petition for a Death Star but we can’t get enough to petition our federal government to stop letting rapists continually force themselves into the lives of their victims in a court of law?
i feel so weird saying my own name
I really do. I hate introducing myself because of this.
