My friend saw on Animal Planet that Golden Retriever’s mouths are so soft they can carry eggs without breaking them, so she tested it.

A Little Bit Of Your Heart - Ariana Grande

written by Harry Styles and Johan Carlsson

i don’t ever ask you
where you’ve been
and i don’t feel the need to
know who you’re with
i can’t even think straight
but i can tell
that you were just with her
and i’ll still be your fool
i’m a fool for you

[chorus:]
just a little bit of your heart [x3]
is all i want
just a little bit of your heart [x2]
just a little bit is all i’m asking for

i don’t ever tell you
how i really feel
'cause
i can’t find the words to
say what i mean
nothing’s ever easy
that’s what they say
i know i’m not your only
but i’ll still be your fool
'cause i'm a fool for you

[chorus]

i know i’m not your only
but at least i’m one

i heard a little love
is better than none

[chorus x2]

The image of the dread-locked man (dubbed “da man wit the chips”)  throwing a tear gas canister while wearing an American flag T-shirt and holding a bag of Red Hot Riplets has become the photo of the Ferguson protests. And he wants you to know that he wasn’t throwing it at police. He was throwing it away.

And the rest of us are not treated like human beings. Period.(x)

"If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them."

One of the more helpful and insightful things I’ve seen about depression/suicide in the last couple of days.

#oh my goddddddd #i’m automatically a million times more interested in rich kind of dickish superheroes when they are poc tbh #because like imagine being a little black boy growing up so so so smart and so so so alone #half your teachers dismissing you when you get bored and restless because you already KNOW all this stuff #and focusing on your disruptive behaviour that results from that combination of boredom and loneliness #you grow up without any real peers because the other kids at your rich fancy private school are all white #and nobody would ever dare say anything but you’re self-conscious anyway #so you deal with it by being as outrageous as possible because then at least you can control why they look at you askance #your dad’s been trying to prove himself to long gone heroes for as long as you can remember #and your mother loves you but she doesn’t always understand you #they die young and you go off the rails and it doesn’t even sting that they all think you’ve proven them right #because you kind of believe it as well #you’ve grown up never seeing a black boy on the television who wasn’t violent #and even when you get straightened out some with help from rhodey there’s a long fucking way to go #but you reach out and you /demand/ respect because you’re angry and you want justice for all your wrongs #the media never really accept you; they’re hungry for more of your misadventures so they can paint you like a villain (via peppermoonchilds)
