I like what this Army officer had to say about sexual harassment in the military.
A blog about stuff that interests me. If you enjoy some of it, feel free to follow, otherwise you can go your own way. Have a wonderful day!
This is the most accurate post I’ve seen on tumblr
You are standing wrong. I say this as a massage therapist who works with people’s bodies all day: women are taught to stand wrong. Since the 50’s, pictures of women have been posed with their feet tilted to the side, knees locked to minimize the natural knobby shape of the knee, and sway-backed to stick their asses out for “perkiness” or whatever.
That is bad for your everything, and causes weakness in the core muscles which tighten and flatten the stomach.
The cure: feet pointing directly forward, put your hand on your tailbone. Tilt your pelvis until the tailbone is straight up and down. This will cause your knees to bend very slightly. It makes a huge difference for back and knee pain, and will make your tummy flatter with no sit-ups or working out at all.
I had a feeling my strangely giant stomach and spinal weirdness had to due with posture
…That explains why my ribcage feels/looks so much further forward than it should be.
Community has never prided itself on romance - or on being one genre for more than one episode at a time - but the constant wasted opportunities and neglect for Jeff Winger and Annie Edison have tested those shippers’ last nerve. Given that Community would much rather keep teasing and reviving the much less popular Jeff/Britta pairing - complete with a half-hearted wedding proposal leading up to the possible series finale - it is quite alienating and baffling to a rather vocal part of an already small audience.
Community is a show that could have benefited quite a lot from a Jeff/Annie relationship, both creatively and commercially. Yet Dan Harmon’s missteps and downright cowardice on this front are the direct opposite of what Michael Schur and his writers keep accomplishing a half-hour later. It’s no wonder that Parks and Recreation is up to seven seasons and may get to craft a real ending in advance, while Community crosses its fingers again for its long, satirically promised sixth season - a.k.a. another chance to disappoint all its shippers."

Look, if you’re watching a show and judging it based on whether or not you get your ship made canon, I think you’re missing out. And commercial interests are a shitty reason for a ship. C’mon.(via nudityandnerdery)
How long does it take for the most trusted news source to turn a boring non-story into a racist, xenophobic nightmare?
About 13 seconds it turns out, and that’s only because CNN news correspondent Jeanne Moos takes her time narrating the intro.
The only thing surprising about this is that it wasn’t split-screened with the fucking plane.
#excUse you ron #not everyone comes from a wizard family #some of us only found out a couple months ago they have magic #some of us are being thrown into an alien culture and don’t appreciate the disadvantage this gives us #and some of us are going to do something about it #like reading up on a whole new universe of history in our spare time #in hopes that sometime soon #ideally long before finals #some of us might be able to better compete academically with the rest of you #bloody hell (via nonlinear-nonsubjective)
THIS! Also I wish Rowling would have explored Hermione’s motivations more, because damn, these tags did a better job at explaining her motivations than the actual books. I mean, seriously, we get to know all about Ron, get to learn all his deepest fears and his greatest motivations, get to meet each member of his family, get to see where he lives, get to know him outside the context of being one of Harry’s best friends… but Hermione? Well, we don’t even get to know half of that.
Hermione is one of my favorite characters, but we don’t get to know Hermione like we do Ron. In fact, this can be said of most of the women in the series when you think about it.Since everyone’s already talking about Hermione, I’d like to bring this back. I have a lot of feelings about the women in Harry Potter.
