ok guys if you have autism or are really sensitive to sound, please DO NOT SEE THE NEW SUPERMAN MOVIE. I have autism and basically it was a temporary trip to hell because everything was SO LOUD. Especially when the people take off their high tech helmets; it made a noise that was so high pitched that I pretty much couldn’t take it anymore. Please signal boost so people won’t have the same experience as me.

“This a photograph taken from the teenager (shirtless guy) named Austin Schafer’s Twitter account, of a kid being tied up and beaten by upper classmen at Columbia High School in Nampa, Idaho.
This is a recent photograph and one where the school’s authorities have not taken action yet. Remember this kid’s name and repost this picture.
The Neanderthal trash who are bullying him deserve to have this picture plastered all over the Internet for prospective college admission offices to see so their career pinnacle can be asking me which kind of soup I want at Olive Garden.
If you’ve been a victim of bullying or know someone who has, please repost.”
omg no I don’t want them serving me ugh
I don’t eat at taco trucks let them work at taco trucks
These guys’ faces should be next to the definition of douchebag in the dictionary. Ugh.
This is Haylee. I met her online recently and was given permission to share her story. Shes 16 years old and has been suffering with Anorexia Nervosa (binge purge subtype) for 10 years now. She has permanent heart problems, shes has 2 heart attacks since January, and was in a coma in March. Shes constantly in the hospital due to her eating disorder, and shes spent 7 months in the hospital this year. It’s come to my attention that there are a lot of people on tumblr with “pro-anorexic” blogs who seem to WANT this disease and give “tips” to their followers to “become anorexic”. I want you to look at this photo, at this young girl who has wasted 10 years of her life in agony and ask yourself, how can you be pro this? How can you encourage others to do this to themselves? Please reblog this and help it get around to other blogs to show the reality of eating disorders and the pain they cause and put a stop to “pro anorexia” blogs.

“This one is very serious, guys:
I came upon these two on the sidewalk. They were having a conversation. “Excuse me,” I said, addressing the girl: “I’m sorry to interrupt, but is there anyway I can take your photo?”
“Why would you want my photo?” she asked.
“Because you look beautiful,” I said. And she did. She was Sudanese. There is a very distinct beauty among people from the Sudan, and she was filled up with it. Suddenly the man cut in:
“I was just telling her she was beautiful,” he said.
Naively, I assumed I had just walked up on one stranger giving a compliment to another. I wanted to capture the moment. “Let me take your photograph together,” I said. The man seemed reluctant, he started smiling nervously and inching away. But the girl called him back.
“Come take a picture with me,” she said. Encouraged by her attention, he returned. She put her arm around him, and I took the photo.
As I examined the photos on my camera, the man started whispering to the girl. She answered him in a loud voice: “I told you! I’m not that kind of girl.” She seemed agitated now. Finally sensing that I had misread the situation, I stepped between them. The man began hurrying down the sidewalk.
When the man left, the girl’s demeanor changed completely. She seemed shaken. Her eyes were tearing up. “He just offered me five hundred dollars to go out with him,” she said. “And then when I said ‘no,’ he offered me one thousand. Why does this always happen to me?”
“It happens a lot?” I asked.
“All the time,” she said. “I’m sorry I’m getting emotional. I just can’t go out of my house without this kind of thing happening. I have a son. I’m a mother. I would never degrade myself like that. I just don’t understand why this keeps happening.”
“Do you mind if I tell this story?” I asked.
“Please,” she said. “Tell it.”
Let’s hope this man, and all men, realize the emotional damage they are inflicting on the women they try to buy. In the meantime, feel free to SHARE.*
Dear Tumblr, fuck you for trying to erase this.
I’m saving this post because as many times as Tumblr tries to erase this woman’s story and act like anything about this was okay, that’s as many times as I’m reposting it. They can either cut me off or stop being assnuggets about this. whichEVER.
To clarify a bit: his family want to hush this up to spare his reputation or some such nonsense. Let’s not let that happen, shall we?
I will reblog this until I die, goddamned it!
Younis who is a shy, quiet person who has been missing since 11/02/2012 from the Ballinger area (North Seattle). His family and friends are very concerned for him. Any help would be very much appreciate it. If you’ve heard or seen anything, it doesn’t matter how small the detail might be please notify us. It would be extremely helpful if you take your time and reblog this photo, so everyone gets a chance to see it. Thank you!
Please boost. He is such a good person. If you live in the Seattle area, please keep your eyes open.
This guy is pretty nice tbh and had him in a few classes. Just scary that out of all the people to go missing, its one of the quietest people I’ve known..
THIS IS HIM GUYS. Please please please reblog this. This is best friend’s younger brother and I’d do anything to get him home. Please, help us find him and bring him home safe.
So….I’ll try to sum up what’s happening here. In 2008, I designed and modeled a robot girl for a college assignment. I posted them on DeviantArt as I always do, and since then I’ve gotten quite a few people asking if they can model it as well. I always tell them sure, as long as I’m credited with the design. I failed to put my name/info on the image though, so it has been spread around the internet and some people have modeled it without my permission (just for the record you don’t have to sign something for it to be protected by copyright). They usually find out who made it later and gladly credit me. So I don’t mind!
Until someone tries to sell it.
Fast forward from 2008 to now. I find out that someone has been selling a model of my design on Turbosquid since March of this year, and it has made thousands of dollars in profit. I’m naturally very upset about this, so I report the infringement to Turbosquid. At first they seemed fairly courteous, but then I wake up today and find them basically asking me to let him keep selling the model as long as he credits me. Are you kidding? After making thousands of dollars? Note that Turbosquid takes a 60% commission of profits by default, so they likely made even more money than the seller did from my design.
They tried to appeal to pity by talking about how hard he worked on creating the model from my design. HI! I DID THAT TOO!
I just can’t believe Turbosquid is taking the side of the infringer and trying to ignore the fact that they both made thousands of dollars off my IP without my permission. The minimum amount of money made is $2,481.00. I base that on how many reviews the model had, which you can only do if you buy it. However, this doesn’t include any purchases made that weren’t given reviews.
I think it goes without saying that the profits belong to me. It is not right for a guy in another country to steal my design and make thousands from it while I struggle to make ends meet. I have never made a penny off of that character design. To think that Turbosquid considers it fair for me to make nothing off my design while they made thousands is just unbelievable.
PLEASE reblog this. I am an amateur artist. I am not famous. I spent $130,000 to go to art college and haven’t found a full-time job since. My only job is the freelance I do from home. I am not Disney. I can’t afford to have my designs stolen for profit. I am hopeful that with enough exposure of this, Turbosquid will suddenly find the ethics they dropped on the floor somewhere. If this can happen to me, it can happen to you.
Usually I try not to get up on my soap box, but this is actually kind of a big issue.
- White tigers are not their own species. They are Bengal or Amur tigers with a genetic mutation that turns their pelt white. Breeders will try to tell you they are trying to conserve the ‘rare species’ of white tiger as a way to justify what they are doing because most people don’t know it’s a lie.
- The white gene causes some pretty bad health issues which is why we don’t see white tigers naturally. They usually die off.
- Being cross-eyed is one health defect that ALL white tigers have (even if they don’t look it) because the gene that carries white coloration also carries the cross-eyed trait. Club feet, cleft palates, spinal deformities and defective organs are also complications that arise from the white gene.
- Because it is so rare to find this type of mutation, severe inbreeding has taken place to produce more animals with the white color. This also causes some severe medical defects as well as early deaths, still births
So maybe you’re wondering why we do see them in zoos? The answer isn’t very surprising: Money. People continue to breed white tigers because they know that’s what people want to see. This is a huge, HUGE issue, and here’s why:
- Only 1 in 4 tiger cubs from a white tiger bred to an orange tiger carrying the white gene are born white. Keep in mind, this is not normal breeding, this is excessive in-breeding.
- Of those 25% born white, only 80% survive due to the medical defects of having the white gene.
- Of those that DO survive and are white, most have immune deficiency, scoliosis of the spine, cleft palates, mental impairments, and of course, the terribly crossed eyes. Due to these defects, very few are actually able to be put on display.
Now, how many cubs do you think have to suffer and die due to either their orange coloring (the 3 out of 4) or the medical issues just so breeders can achieve the very small percentage of individuals they can use?
The answer is: A lot.
This kind of breeding is not okay and any reputable zoo will not participate in it. Luckily, the AZA (American Zoological Association) formally banned the breeding of white tigers in 2011.
There is a tiger named Kenny who is one of the most severe examples of this kind of breeding. Here are some pictures of him:
He has down-syndrome as well as several other medical problems that make him completely dependent on the people who take care of him.
Kenny continues to be kept alive so that people can really see what is happening to white tigers when people breed for the white gene. Here’s something to think about: If this is what one of the surviving white tigers has had to suffer through, think of what all the others must be like who don’t make it to adult hood.
This is 100% real. Please don’t support it.
Thanks for reading.
So I heard about this story at a Zumbathon I attended this weekend. To my understanding, a 3 year old was bit by a pit bull and needs facial reconstruction surgery. The community however isn’t doing a very good job at helping because the mother and father of the child have a lot of tattoos.
All I could think when I heard this was - Tumblr wouldn’t stand for that.
Here is the link to the news story and to the fundraising site, please signal boost :)
Boosting the signal.
MISSING In the middle is Peter Scott, this is the best photo I can provide of him. He was last seen at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. His mother has since filed a missing person’s report. Nobody has heard from him since September 4th. His mother is worried sick. He’s a very vocal anarchist and I’m fearing he’s gotten into some trouble. Please, please if anyone sees him tell him his mother Rose is worried sick and if you would please message my tumblr, asdfmeow.tumblr.com or [here] is my facebook account. I would provide my cell number but my phone’s service is shut off. Please signal boost this. I’m worried to death about him. His mom lost her husband and one of her sons years ago already, I’d hate to see her if Peter isn’t found soon.
EDIT he travels, he could be anywhere. He’s originally from Knox, Indiana. There’s no reason not to reblog it if you live in the US.
If you’re following me and decide not to reblog this for whatever reason, fuck you. I see you guys posting.
THIS IS MY FRIEND PETER, HE IS MISSING. Please signal boost.
oh my god. Please signal boost
Haven’t seen him in Charlotte or rock hill but i’ll keep an eye out

Pe’ Sla: The Heart Of All That Is: Help Save the Lakota Heart Land!
Pe’ Sla is an area in the Black Hills of South Dakota (just west of Rapid City) that is considered by the Lakota people to be the Center and heart of everything that is. It is part of our creation story. It is a sacred place. We perform certain ceremonies at Pe’ Sla which sustain the Lakota way of life and keep the universe in harmony.
This area is currently owned by the Reynolds family. They plan to auction off almost 2,000 acres on August 25, 2012 to the highest bidder. It is likely that the state of South Dakota will put a road directly through Pe’ Sla and open up this sacred place for development.
The seven bands of the Lakota/Dakota/Nakota Oyate (people) aka Oceti Sakowin (Great Sioux Nation) have a collective effort to buy as much of Pe’Sla as we can at this auction (although we also believe that the land cannot be owned and that our sacred places were illegally taken by the United States). Yet we are trying to work within the current U.S. laws to regain custody of our sacred sites and prevent future road and industrial development.
Our sacred ways must be protected and passed on to our future generations so that our children may live. This area of the Paha Sapa (Black Hills) is also home to many plants and animals who should also be protected. In fact, many consider that the area should possibly be a historical site, which would also assist in protecting it from future development as well.
As Lakota people, our ancestors prayed here, at Pe’ Sla, at certain times of year, when the stars aligned. We cannot go elsewhere to pray. We were meant to pray here. This is what they do not understand.
Please help the Lakota people. “Let us put our minds together and see what life we can make for our children.” (Chief Sitting Bull, 1877)
We have a group of young professional Native people that are dedicated to the promotion of education, health, leadership, and sovereignity among our indigenous Nations. Our goal is to assist in any way possible the purchase of Pe’ Sla by a collective effort of the seven bands of the Oceti Sakowin (Great Sioux Nation) - the Lakota/Dakota/Nakota people. All proceeds from this campaign will go towards that effort. This area would be open to tribal nations for ceremonial purposes. The plants, animals, water, and air in the area would be respected and honored. Please see http://www.lastrealindians.com/category/chase-i… for more information.
We thank you for your hope in the future.
dear settlers (who have $1 or more that they can afford to give up): it’s a small price to pay considering everything that’s happen/ed/ing, no?
I’m saying…. How many times have we heard people say that they feel badly for what their ‘ancestors’ did but it has nothing to do with them? Well, here’s a chance for folks, that have $1 to spare, to stop talking about their ancestors and to start acknowledging the current lived realities of Native folks. Today! Right now! 2012!

If you don’t remember Sophie M Herold, she is a German girl, who is extremely homophobic and transphobic. She has found out LGBTQ persons names, addresses, personal info etc. And set up her own database.
Her intentions with this are harmful.
She is sending out this information, your information, your best friends information, someone you love and care about. She’s sending it to hate groups, malicious people, people with bad intentions.
And if you think I’m blowing this out of proportion, people have been kicked out of homes, disowned by families and even MURDERED. Yes, murdered. Innocent people who have done nothing but love.
She has had numerous blogs and each have been removed. Tumblr staff are aware of her, and as far as I’m aware she currently doesn’t have a blog, but this does not mean she isn’t still on peoples tumblrs, asking via anon where you live, what your name is.
An email I received today. She’s sending out information of same sex couples with children so the children can be kidnapped. She entitled it “Time to strike back”. If that doesn’t suggest harmful intentions I don’t know what does.
Please be extremely careful what you post on tumblr, on twitter, facebook, anywhere. Do NOT give out your full name or your address, or even the town in which you live. Look out for one another, and don’t answer any suspicious anons. Especially if they use your name in quotation marks.
Sophie M Herold is still out there, she always will be, so please spead this message and warn people. She’s attacking in silence. We don’t need more people dying because of her actions.
Alright everyone, you may have seen my warning about a button saying “don’t touch the button” and then how it’s a bright, loud, fast flash THAT COULD EASILY CAUSE A SEIZURE FOR AN EPILEPTIC PERSON! Just as I thought this was gone, IT’S BACK. IN A DIFFERENT FORM. This time, it’s what seems like a video of a girl who’s going to show her boobs. GUESS WHAT EVERYONE? IT’S NOT TITS! It’s the same scary as fuck flash that could make you jump, cause a seizure, or maybe even a HEART ATTACK to someone! If you see what LOOKS like a video of a dark haired girl about the flash the camera, IT’S REALLY THAT SCARY GIF. You will know what it is because it will say something like “wow i get a boner every time i watch this” or something. SO PLEASE REBLOG THIS AND LET YOUR FOLLOWERS KNOW SO WE CAN PREVENT SOMETHING BAD FROM HAPPENING.
^^^^^^ this is what the “VIDEO” looks like. It’s really a link to the flash. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE REBLOG THIS AND LET YOUR FOLLOWERS KNOW ;n;
”THROUGH A RAPIST’S EYES” (PLS TAKE TIME TO READ THIS. it may save a life.) Reblog this!
It seems that alot of attackers use some tactic to get away with violence. Not many people know how to take care of themselves when faced with such a
situation. Everyone should read this especially each n every girl in this world. THOUGHT THIS WAS GOOD INFO TO PASS ALONG…
FYI - Through a rapist’s eyes! A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:
1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle.
They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun! , braid, or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.
2] The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women who’s clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around to cut clothing.
3] They also look for women using their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.
4] The number one place women are abducted from / attacked at is grocery store parking lots.
5] Number two is office parking lots/garages.
6] Number three is public restrooms.
7] The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second location where they don’t have to worry about getting caught.
8] If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn’t worth it because it will be time-consuming.
9] These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas,or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands.
10] Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you’re not worth it.
POINTS THAT WE SHOULD REMEMBER:
1] If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk:
can’t believe it is so cold out here, we’re in for a bad winter. Now that you’ve seen their faces and could identify them in a line- up, you lose appeal as a target.
2] If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they’d leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would
not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target.
3] If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yelling I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent.
4] If someone grabs you, you can’t beat them with strength but you can do it by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow and
armpit or in the upper inner thigh - HARD. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it really hurts.
5] After the initial hit, always go for the groin. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy’s parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you’ll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our
instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause him a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble, and he’s out of there.
6] When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor did it to me without using
much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.
7] Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don’t dismiss it, go with your instincts. You may feel
little silly at the time, but you’d feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.
FINALLY, PLEASE REMEMBER THESE AS WELL ….
I know you are smart enough to know these pointers but there will be some, where you will go “hmm I must remember that” After reading forward it to someone you care about, never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.
1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do it.
2. Learned this from a tourist guide to New Orleans : if a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you…. chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or
purse than you and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car: Kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won’t see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.
4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON’T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side,put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU CLOSE the DOORS , LEAVE.
5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
a. Be aware: look around your car as someone may be
hiding at the passenger side , peek into your car, inside the passenger side floor, and in the back seat. ( DO THIS TOO BEFORE RIDING A TAXI CAB) .
b. If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
c. Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).
7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!
8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked “for help” into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.
Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it’s better safe than sorry.
