this is the kind of fucking bullshit I’m taking about.

THIS IS FAKE
Tumblr, STOP REPOSTING ARTICLES FROM NATIONALREPORT TO TUMBLR
NationalReport is a satirical website. Everything they post sounds real and is presented as fact but is made up. You all desperately need to learn to use google, you guys can search article titles to find out whether or not the source is real or not.

Besides, Zimmerman is such an obvious scapegoat by now that anything involving him deserves a healthy bit of skepticism.

More proof that Paul Ryan is a despicable human being.

Objectivisim at its finest. When the cause he defunded becomes a pop culture fad, why let’s get our photo op in! 

I don’t like Paul Ryan, but I think this is actually pretty cool.
"Funding" that he cut is money that was forcefully taken from people to pay for this research. Taxes are theft and immoral no matter what they are being used to pay for
This ice bucket challenge shows us that we don’t need to force people to pay for things, they are more than happy to donate on their own free will.
I don’t know if Ryan donated any money or not but this post conveniently left that part out.

Fyi, he did donate.

This is precisely what we want. People need to be allowed to give to the causes we want to support, rather than having our money forcefully taken and given to causes the government supports.
For instance, our tax money goes to places like Planned Parenthood. I would very much like for my money to not go there. I would like to give my money to my church and local charities like homeless shelters and pregnancy resource centers that will help people rather than killing them.
By taking away funding from these special government interests and leaving that money with the people who earned it, we give people the opportunity to give to the causes that matter to them of their own free will, rather than under the force of the law.

^^^^

SO MUCH THIS
People get mad at certain lawmakers(read:generally republicans) for cutting funding to causes because they forget where that funding comes from. By allowing agency with their own funds, taxpayers have the freedom to donate what they feel they can afford to causes they support, like the ALS ice bucket challenge. Paul Ryan showed this agency in action. Unless it’s voluntary and initiated by the holder of the funds, it isn’t donation.

I GOT INTO FIGURE DRAWING

Okay so for people who prolly didn’t know I’ve been trying to get into two classes at literally the last minute. One of them is an advanced drawing class, which requires department/teacher approval(and she’s asked me for my student id to put me in SQUEEEEEE) the other class is Figure Drawing, which was closed when I tried to sign up. So I talked to the teacher, who basically said that I’d have my best shot after the first meeting, when a lot of people dropped once they realized how much work it’d be(wimps). However, fortune favors the vigilant, and I’d try and sign up every day and get the same error message that the class was still full. SO I tried it today, but instead of the error message I found another class attached to my list of classes.

I got in to Figure Drawing.

I GOT IN I’M SO HYPE RIGHT NOW

LETS PLAY A GAME. It’s called: Who directed it TIM BURTON or HENRY SELICK
We’ll start with the 2009 Laika film Coraline based on the novel by Neil Gaiman. Do you know who directed it? Burton or Selick?

Did you guess yet?

If you guessed Henry Selick, you would be correct. Tim Burton actually had absolutely nothing to do with Coraline at all in anyway ever. Reminder: Tim Burton has NOTHING to do with Coraline. At all. But that was an easy one. Let’s go to the Walt Disney Pictures adaptation of Roald Dahl’s novel, James and the Giant Peach next.

Think you got it? Are you sure? Better double check…

Oh, look. It’s Henry Selick again! Tim Burton actually interacted with this project, though only as a producer. Bet that was tricky… Next one! Let’s go to the Disney/Touchstone Pictures film Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Have you guessed it correctly? Have you really?

Yep that’s right. Even Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas was directed by Henry Selick. Though Burton wrote the poem and created the characters in which Nightmare was based he didn’t have much interaction with the project beyond that. At the time he had already signed off to direct the film Batman Returns and did not want to be involved with the “painstakingly slow process of stop-motion animation.”
Looks like it was a trick quiz. But now you know Henry Selick, whom people rarely know of is responsible for many of the most well known stop-motion animated films. The more you know!

This isn’t even being qeued. This is just being reblogged, because some of you still don’t understand who directed Coraline.

Most people totally and painfully incorrectly attribute most stop-motion they grew up with/on with Burton simply because they tacked his name on NMBC.

Does anyone know if Selick is working on Boxtrolls, or if he worked on Paranorman?

Why Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes
For 75 years, Finland’s expectant mothers have been given a box by the state. It’s like a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that can even be used as a bed. And some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates.
It’s a tradition that dates back to the 1930s and it’s designed to give all children in Finland, no matter what background they’re from, an equal start in life.
The maternity package - a gift from the government - is available to all expectant mothers.
It contains bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress.
With the mattress in the bottom, the box becomes a baby’s first bed. Many children, from all social backgrounds, have their first naps within the safety of the box’s four cardboard walls.
Mothers have a choice between taking the box, or a cash grant, currently set at 140 euros, but 95% opt for the box as it’s worth much more.
The tradition dates back to 1938. To begin with, the scheme was only available to families on low incomes, but that changed in 1949.

Socialism at work.

I would rather my tax money pay for this than drone missiles.

This is really cool. Like, really, REALLY cool. But how is this socialism? Seems more akin to medical aid.

minimum wage doesn’t even TOUCH a living wage, racism and sexism are alive and well, children are killed in schools on a regular basis, those who make it to college end up with hundreds of thousands in debt, our basic rights are being stripped from us daily, and adults actually believe that SELFIES are the cause for this generation’s demise

Finally someone fucking said it

I see posts like this every two days, who do you follow???

Friendly reminder that Dreamworks created a character who not only displayed everything that’s wrong with Nice Guy Syndrome, but also turned into a supervillian when he was friend zoned.

Mega Mind was such an important movie filled with so many important messages.

It isn’t necessarily my favorite movie but I feel there was so much done right with Mega Mind.
