why does no one ever talk about what fire actually is like it’s not a solid, liquid or gas, it’s just kinda there
this is one of the things that have mindfucked me since forever
like what is it
I asked my chemistry teacher this the other day and he said it’s technically a gas but then he whispered that it’s actually not and scientists just don’t want to admit that they have no fucking clue
my chemistry teacher’s great
My old chemistry teacher said that it’s a form of plasma?
I just bought a math and pencil set for two girls, but some don’t have anything yet. If you have extra cash please try to help.
"At Rio Americano High School in Sacramento CA, a student named Dejza, was violently assaulted by a vice principal, Matt Collier, for attempting to take back a piece of art with a political message that the administration didn’t like. She was put in a chokehold and slammed against the desk. When she tried to resist this unlawful abuse of authority, she was slammed and held onto the ground. Matt Collier laid on top of her, crushing her with his weight. Dejza could not breathe, and begged Collier to get off of her. Luckily, another faculty member came in and ended the situation. Dejza went to see a doctor for severe whiplash, and yesterday was her first day of physical therapy. Despite this being blatantly wrong and illegal, the administration has put her on suspension for resisting, and Collier was not disciplined. On the fifth day of her suspension, she will attend a meeting held by bias members of the administration to determine if she will be expelled.
They have tried to silence anyone who speaks out on social media, but today we have gathered in person for a silent sit-in protest.
Dejza has been wronged, and brutalized, and now she is receiving punishment. They’ve tried to silence her. They’ve tried to silence us.” -Grant Wright
One of my friends Grant posted this on facebook and even though im not in Sacramento I want to help. This girl has been mistreated by a full grown man who may never be punished. I want to help spread awareness. So please, spread this around. Let people know that this is NOT okay. The more support we have, the better.
i’m so proud to have been a part of this today but you guys please please please please reblog/spread this around any way you possibly can it’s so important and her story needs to be heard by people outside of our city because what this man did is so so so incredibly far from okay
arrest Matt Collier. protect and redeem Dejza.
I live around Sac & I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve heard of this
I just sort of… put my fingers on the keyboard and this happened. Might add more at some point. We’ll see.
Oh, rated M for Klaine get friendly with each other’s butts. Duh.

His foot slipped on the rubber, his pitch sailing past Mark into the backstop. Kurt hopped back and nearly fell on his butt as Coach Sylvester roared across the field at him once more.

**Please take the time to read my case, it would me a lot to me.**
Hello! My name is Amber, or Rue, as some of you may know me by. I am a 22 year old girl living on my own in Connecticut.
I moved to Connecticut from California 4 years ago to escape a very bad situation with my family. I haven’t spoken to them much since and we are not on good terms. I cannot return home, nor would I ever want to.
Since I have been on my own I have lived in homeless shelters, friend’s homes and I have rented rooms from various shady people. Now, I live with a compulsive hoarder in a small room mostly filled with her stuff. I have been living here since March of 2013. I work 40+ hours a week as an assistant manager at a Dunkin’ Donuts and also attend school two days a week (7 hours both days). I am currently looking for a second job. I pay monthly health and dental insurance, my phone bill, rent, medical bills, etc. I also pay for transportation when I cannot walk to work since I do not have a car. I try my hardest to walk to work when I can because I cannot afford to spend money on cabs, but sometimes it is too cold at 5am in the winter to walk or the sidewalks are piled with snow. I am desperately trying to conserve money whenever I can and I have started a savings account to keep money aside.
The woman I live with doesn’t have A/C in the summer nor does she have heat in the winter. I live in Connecticut where it snows and gets to be VERY cold, especially during the night. I have a low tolerance to the cold and it effects my heart negatively. She also does not have a working fridge, stove or toilet. I am unable to keep food in the house because I cannot refrigerate or cook it so I end up eating a lot of my meals at my friend’s house when I am invited. If I eat at home it is usually just chips or cookies.
The woman who owns the house also has three cats. The cats do not use the litter box, likely because it goes uncleaned for weeks. As a result the pets urinate throughout the house, including in the bathtub and on my clothing in my room. I am constantly bleaching the tub before I shower and washing my clothes over and over again. I have asked the owner to please keep my door shut to prevent this but I have come home many times to find my door wide open and cats in my room.
The cats also kill many small rodents such as mice, rats and squirrels which they have dragged in from outside or have actually found and killed in the house. When I have brought this to the attention of the home owner she was not at all interested and told me not to bother cleaning it up because the cats like to “play” with the dead animals. These are just a few of the examples highlighting the gross environment I live in.
I can no longer tolerate it mentally and physically. I have been diagnosed with severe Clinical Depression and PTSD; my psychiatrist said moving out of this house would most definitely help improve my depression (obviously not cure it, but make it a little bit more tolerable). I also have a lot of health issues, one being a problem with my heart which is made worse by the mold, dust and cat dander in the house as I am allergic to them. I have included pictures of the house that I took recently. This is actually the cleanest it has been in a while considering she had people over so she had straigtened it up a bit.
Unfortunately, there is absolutely no where else for me to go. I am desperately trying to move before winter hits, but between all my bills I cannot save enough to pay for the required safety deposit and first months rent. I have gone and visited many apartments, and it always comes down to me not being able to get enough money together. I know I can pay the monthly rent, it’s just a matter of saving up enough for the first month and deposit before winter.
I am asking for donations to help me reach my goal and escape this horrible living situation before I am stuck here for the winter. Any amount of donated money is greatly appreciated and all the money is going directly to my savings account where I am already started to put aside whatever I can as well.
Thank you so much for reading.
I will gladly provide any proof needed and answer questions.
I have a gofundme account set up here: http://www.gofundme.com/fpyqog
Even a signal boost or anything would be greatly appreciated, thank you so much again!
Please take sometime to read through this it would mean a lot, Amber is a sweet great person who should NOT be living in a dump like this, she’s very hard working and had endured so much but she can’t pull this off on her own. She needs to move out that place by winter or it’ll be significantly difficult for her to cope with her living situation.
If you cannot donate, at least reblog this post and pass it around, I’m not good with words but I’m pretty sure she’d appreciate any type of support she gets.
A friend on my facebook feed is complaining about how much it sucks being the good girl and how she hates being nice and compassionate all the time.
Um, you’re not fucking doing it right if that’s the case, honey.
We couldn’t be more thrilled for “American Horror Story: Freak Show” to kick off for numerous reasons, and learning that the hit FX franchise will welcome a transgender performer just makes our excitement for the show more palpable.
