So I went to get my hair cut today, and in China that includes a head massage and minor styling.  Except today the ‘minor styling’ became ‘OMG, A FOREIGNER!  MUST MAKE HAIR POOFY!’  Seriously, I thought he was trying to give me Texas big hair.  And it’s like…  My hair don’t work that way.  It really does not.  But he seemed awfully proud of himself after it all, so hey.  Whatever works?

Filed under This is Mem's life China stuffs It's like he was going for the artfully mussed RDJ hair but my hair is kind of too long for that And he had to take pictures of me after with like glamor shot poses Oh China

“May I ask why you felt little Tiffany deserved to die?”

I’m pretty sure this is why Tumblr gave us photosets.

To this day, I still have absolutely no idea if he actually did the right thing by shooting little Tiffany. His story was very convincing…

I totally bought that he was right.

I always though this was about not demonizing people based on how they look, instead focussing on what they do.

Pallas’s cat is a small wild cat having a broad but patchy distribution in the grasslands and montane steppe of Central Asia. The species is negatively affected by habitat degradation, prey base decline, and hunting, and has therefore been classified as ‘Near Threatened’ by IUCN since 2002.’s_cat

no sorry im a scientist and actually those things are called faerie cats and they are magic

They are also called manuls and i am so glad to live in a world that still has them around.

They look like precious tiny lions :D

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

When I was like 9 years old, we were watching this movie about the French Revolution and then our teacher told us “Shut up and listen to what Danton is going to say to Robespierre it’s actually essential” so we all went quiet and Danton said “Robespierre, you have no balls. You’re an eunuch!” and then our teacher looked really lost and said “well, that wasn’t the excerpt I was actually thinking of” and it’s still one of my greatest memories tbh
