So I just watched the Doctor Who episode Kill The Moon. I haven’t been particularly impressed with the current series, but this episode left me bloody livid.

It was a fucking abortion metaphor, where the good, right decision is not to kill the sweet innocent little

Yep. I’m kinda over Doctor Who at the moment. Haven’t seen the last episode and don’t really care anymore.
It makes me very sad.

Global poll reveals millennials everywhere are optimistic about the future

The survey, conducted by telecom giant Telefónica, asked thousands of young people around the world how they felt about their future and prospects. The results: Times are hard, but most Millennials still believe they can make a local difference, and nearly half believe they can make a global difference, as well. 

But the feeling didn’t extend to the economy | Follow micdotcom

Once again, NZ is left out. We have no problems ever and we are never affected my zombie apocalypses or alien invasions.

The real problem with books-turned-movies isn’t “omg they didn’t include every single word in the book” it’s “omg they completely overlooked the main theme, threw out any significant allegories, took away all the emotional pull, an turned it into a boring action movie with a love triangle in it”

This is why I was so horribly nervous and anxious going into TFiOS, all of the trailers I’d seen were showing me some sort of teen romance flick. Where was the existential crisis? Where was the cruel duality of being young and reckless while staring death in the face? As someone who grew up a ‘sick kid’ I related to these characters so deeply and I knew that there was so much more to them than being just another foil for teenagers wanting a romantic outlet.
Am I saying the romance wasn’t important? No, of course not! I am saying that there were other more important themes in the story that I was worried would be stripped away in the effort to make the film not be 6 hours long.

As someone who knows first hand what it’s like to have had more blood tests than birthdays, I felt like the most important thing about Hazel & Gus’ story was that it was about more than just their romantic feelings for each other. Luckily I think that the film managed to retain a lot of what made the book so important to me.

I feel it did a better job than, say, The Hunger Games. The film took a story about a young woman who just wanted to protect her family and accidentally incited a rebellion, and turned it into a love triangle but also there’s fighting and death.
Divergent, a young woman who was just trying to find a place she could belong, stumbles upon a government plot and also incites a rebellion. The film of Divergent is a young woman who impresses one of her teachers and falls in love with him, but also there’s fighting and death.

I’m going to finish my rant here because I don’t feel like I’m saying anything new anymore.

Although it is popularly claimed that Adidas is an acronym for All Day I Dream About Sports, that phrase is a backronym; the name is actually a portmanteau formed from “Adi” (a nickname for Adolf) and “Das” (from “Dassler”)

WHAT

Fun fact, Haribo gummy bears are called ‘Haribo’ because Hans Riegel of Bonn who invented the gummy bear (or gummibärchen) took the first two letters of his name & the town where he lived.Germans, man.
