i run nedxnancy.tumblr.com for my daily fix of nancy/ned action. i love: nancy drew, law & order criminal intent, the fall, dark city, mad men, arrested development, archer, community, justified, lois & clark, star trek, perry mason, jane eyre, eddie izzard, terry pratchett, addams family, apple, bertha cool & donald lam, MST3K, interpol, my morning jacket, st vincent, playmobil, diana gabaldon's cracktastic outlander series, raymond chandler, cillian murphy, wodehouse; alias, chuck, carnivale, pushing daisies, the adventures of pete & pete, tomorrow people (new series), veronica mars, legend of the seeker/the sword of truth, lost, x-files.

 

And when you find that coveted book, the one that has prompted countless trips to the bookstore, hoping someone cleaning out their collection has dropped off the one thing you’ve been search one, the feeling is joyous. You want to raise it to the heavens, a la Rafiki with baby Simba, letting the clouds part so your discovery can bask in the sunshine. Yeah, it’s like that.

hey, this is the government
we saw that post you made on tumblr dot com and we think that’s really cool that you want to be independent and stuff
we’re here to take away your access to public roads and we’re pulling your kids out of school. we’re taking away your high school diploma and any degrees you got at a public univeristy.
you can’t use the post office anymore, the only reason that’s as cheap as it is is that you share the service with other US citizens.
we’ll no longer be monitoring the safety of your water, as independent as you are, i bet you can identify whether your water has 44 ppm of nitrate in it by yourself.
your employer can start making you work on the weekends and for longer hours. we’ve notified them that you no longer need the government to protect you and they are really excited to get those extra hours of work out of you.
if someone breaks into your house or your house catches on fire, you should be able to handle that yourself. you don’t need government to save you.
we’re also taking back the tax credits we’ve given you over the years for childcare, homeowning, getting an education, buying a yacht, starting a business, etc. we know you’re so independent you don’t even want that support!
we’ve let all the state, national, and local parks know who you are so they won’t let you in.
so again, this is the government, thanking you for taking the initiative! you’re very brave.

You have no clue what government handouts are apparently.

nah i know exactly what “government handouts” are - they’re conveniently all the government services you don’t partake of.

The Real Reason We Still Don't Have A Vaccine For Ebola

atane:

It’s not about saving lives, it’s about making money.

It’s true. I was reading a long scary article about how the effectiveness of antibiotics has decreased so much over time, and it mentioned that too - how vaccine companies and pharmaceutical companies don’t spend the money to develop new drugs unless they can see some economic benefit to themselves.

gallifreyanturtles:

And let’s talk about the fact that Joseph Gordon Levitt himself said the point of the movie is not so you’d feel bad for him and fall in love with him, it’s so you’d realize how selfish some people are.
Actual quote from him from an interview:
The (500) Days of Summer attitude of ‘He wants you so bad’ seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is.”
"He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person."

The problem with depression is

lifeaccordingtohan:

-You know you’ll be ok, but you still feel awful.
-You know people love you, but it doesn’t feel like they do.
-You know doing something will make you feel better, but you just don’t know how to.
-You want to be well, but you just can’t seem to get there.

They still want to go to the movies — they just want to go to really good movies.

Um. Yes. That is true. I want to go to the movies, but I don’t want to shell out gas money and $8.50 to see something awful. I can do that in the privacy of my own home a lot more cheaply.

every now and then, no matter what else i’m working on,

i just really want to write a nancy/ned sex scene

sadly the two stories i’m currently working on don’t call for it, so i get to open up another in-progress story and throw one in there wheeeeeeee

  1. foobar137 said: I do the same thing with Phineas/Isabella. Sometimes, that’s just where the mind goes.

It happens a lot when I’m reading a romance novel too (or, as it happens, two or three simultaneously?). Heh.
