Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

This isn’t right. You’re supposed to be with me!

The actual definition of what some guys think when the girl says “no”.

"OMG I did this and that for YOU, you must date me!"

Hell no. If I don’t like you, I won’t date you.

This movie is fucking golden.

YES CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS MOVIE

Megamind has the ultimate example of a “nice guy”, Hal, who liked Roxanne - and he was clear about it. He “complimented” several things to her in the beginning, which guess what - were not flattering at all, but downright creepy, so really, it was no wonder Roxanne didn’t like him.

But after he gets his superpowers, he expects her to - he expects to be rewarded for being the “good guy”, despite the fact that he hasn’t really done anything for her. When she rejects him and later finds out that she had dated Megamind for a time, he’s furious that she would date the “bad guy” when he is the “good guy”.

Yet despite Megamind being “bad” and Hal being “good”, it’s Megamind who respects what she wants - when she told him to back off, he backed off, and then later apologized, while Hal was legit going to kill her for rejecting him. So really, who is the good guy?

I know somebody like this…pffff….

This is the oldest piece of music known to humankind. It’s engraved in cuneiform on a tablet from 1400 BC. And it was a hymn to their goddess Nikkal.

Really, really interesting stuff.

This is a really beautiful piece of music.

That’s really interesting!

Lions Facing Extinction in West Africa

The number of lions in West Africa has faced a “catastrophic collapse” with about 400 left in the region, a new survey suggests. There are concerns that the entire population could disappear with there being fewer than 250 mature lions of breeding age.

Panthera (a non-profit organization) has carried out a 6-year study in 17 countries – Senegal to Nigeria. 

In 2005, it was believed that West African lions live in 21 different protected areas (PAs), however, according to the survey published in the scientific journal PLOS One, lions now exist in just 4 of those sites. The report also includes that lions now roam only 1.1% of their historic range in West Africa – a majority of their habitat has been converted for agricultural use (Philipp Henschel, co-author of the report). 

“Researchers discovered that West African lions now survive in only 5 countries: Senegal, Nigeria, and a single trans-frontier population on the shared borders of Benin. Niger and Burkina-Faso.” If these lions end up extinct, we will lose a very unique locally adapted population as these lions have a genetic sequence not found in other lions. 

“Our results came as a complete shock; all but a few of the areas we surveyed were basically paper parks, having neither management budgets nor patrol staff, and had lost all their lions and other iconic large mammals,” Mr Henschel told the BBC’s Sivaramakrishnan Parameswaran.”

Conservation of West African lions has been greatly neglected, whereas eastern and southern Africa, millions of dollars has been spent. 

There is a bush meat problem:

Lions are restricted to protected areas. Poaching of animals (usually the prey/food source for lions) to supply local bushmeat markets is most likely the main threat. Not to mention, retaliatory killings of lions by herdsmen and local farmers have been witnessed. 

There is a funding crisis:

There is a lack of funding for conservation of these West African lions as well as increasing human population and encroachment with impoverished economies, resulting in increasingly vulnerable lions. The IUCN (International Union for Conservation) is calling for urgent international support. Benin and Senegal are working to establish a National Lion Action Plan with research teams to identify measures to save the lions in their countries.

I literally crave affection. It’s not about sex. I crave somebody to cuddle with me, and to lay their head on my lap. I crave kisses, holding hands and running my thumb across theirs. Just looking at someone and thinking “how did I get this lucky”.

Yes

Please?

BOND is a tiny touch module. It can be a pendant or a bracelet but it comes in pairs. You keep one and you give one to a friend. When you touch it, your friend feels it. No matter where they are on the planet. We don’t do tweets, we do tickles.

gonna put it on my dick

THAT IS NOT THE INTENDED USE SIR

This is actually so cool because some people wear bracelets and necklaces and things as comfort items. I used to wear a necklace from my grandma to remind me of her and I would touch the pendant on it when I was feeling down or stressed. So imagine (if she were still alive), every time I did that she would know I was thinking of her, drawing strength from her.

And then imagine poking it and the other person feels it and pokes back and you end up in a real life facebook poke war.

I would send messages in morse code

magine you and your best friend have one. When the friend dies, he/she is buried with the bracelet. A couple weeks later, you feel someone touch your wrist.

Well this escalated from cool tech to perverted hilarity to something heartfelt then finally something out a creepypasta

Welcome to tumblr my friend
