Book Pillows, Paper Dreams

Two scientists walk into a bar:

"I’ll have an H2O."

"I’ll have an H2O, too."

The bartender gives them both water because he is able to distinguish the boundary tones that dictate the grammatical function of homonyms in coda position as well as pragmatic context.

bookprince:

So I made a post a while ago about me selling my books, but I now have a more comprehensive list. Here are a few things you should know:

  1. Paperbacks are £2 each or 3 for £5
  2. Hardbacks are £4 or 2 for £6
  3. I will ship internationally, but you will have to pay for the postage
  4. Payments will be made via Paypal
  5. If you want to buy a book, I will send you a picture of the book & info about any damage/creases/marks and you can get a price deduction for these, but most of the books are brand new and never read!
  6. EDIT: Even UK buyers will have to pay for postage so please take this into consideration!

“When I write novels, I have to go down into a very deep, dark, and lonely place. And then I have to come back, back to the surface. It’s very dangerous. And you have to be strong, physically and mentally strong, in order to do that every day.”

- Haruki Murakami (via procrastinator-perfectionist)

Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.

Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.

THAT IS LITERALLY WHAT ANY SCHOOL HEALTH CLASS WOULD TELL YOU TO DO.

So she’s getting punished for doing the right thing? She should have let her friend drive drunk? Should she have let her friend kill herself in an auto accident? 

Reblogged it before and i’ll fucking reblog it again.

glad bhs isnt like this

WAIT I KNOW HER WTF?

THIS IS FUCKING BULLSHIT

THIS IS HOW YOU GET KIDS KILLED

Whats the school got to do with it though? This happened outside of school hours so why are they getting involved?

cause US schools love to stick their dirty fucking rotten noses in everyone’s personal fucking business

So, I looked at the date: October 2013, and wondered how this story progressed since then. Literally a minute later on google I found the truth about this story.

Not going to share my feelings about it, but, glad I didn’t just reblog the story and dismiss that school as ‘corrupt’ or whatever. Do your research, kiddies.

Thank you for this!
