STOLE A KISS PRANK
I’m telling you right here, right now, if you kiss me without my consent I will destroy you. I will hit you so hard in your nether regions that your future children (should you unfortunately reproduce) will feel it.
For real though people don’t do this. This is sick and totally disgusting. Sexual assault isn’t a freakin’ joke or a prank.
Hey guys, my friend Mara could really use your help. I met Mara my freshman year of college and have been astounded by her grace and strength and determination ever since. She is a beautiful person inside and out, and now she’s asking for a favor for her family.
Here’s a little of her story:
"Hello, my name is Mara and I am trying to raise money to bring my mom to the United States for a few months. It’s been almost 12 years since I have seen her and it’s been a long journey for me since then. But the reason why I am trying to bring her is because I suffer from Crohn’s Disease and I am having a major surgery in May and I have no family here. I have been on my own for last 5 years and I’m doing the best I can to be the best person I can be.The past few years have been a battle though. After getting diagnosed with Crohn’s, I have been in the hospital or the doctor’s more than I count on my fingers and toes. I have tried numerous medications which have failed. It has gotten to the point where I can’t eat anything but Ensure because there is too much damage in my tummy and surgery has become the only option. I work 40 hours a week in order to keep my health insurance to afford all my medicine, but I am also a nursing student at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, meaning I am a broke college student and can’t afford to pay for her plane ticket. My mom has been struggling with me being sick for a few years now and of course being a parent she wants to be here for me while I am having surgery. She’s even offered to sell her apartment to pay for it or for my treatments, but I would love to surprise her and pay for it. If you guys can help us out in any way, your donations would be very appreciated it. God is good and He makes things work for those who love Him. I believe that this is something He has planned for my mother and I, we can make it happen. Thank you so much!"
Go here to read the rest of her story, and please consider donating to help her and her family right now. Feel free to reblog and share this. Every bit of support means the world to her! Thank you!
This girl really is one of the sweetest people ever. A signal boost would be wonderful, especially considering she was already talking about missing her mom when I met her four years ago. Anything would be more than appreciated and she is really the most wonderful person you could ever consider helping.
I’m coming Harry..!!
HEADCANNON ACCEPTED SIMPLY TO AVOID THE PAIN OF NO HEDWIG

So it’s 3AM and It’s just occurred to me that the most telling scene in the entire Harry Potter franchise is the scene following the announcement of the participants of the Triwizard tournament.
When Harry’s name is pulled out of the cup, literally one of the first things he is asked is “did you ask an older boy to put your name in the cup for you?" or something to that effect, insinuating that, that was something nobody prepared for and that it was something that totally would have worked if anyone had been smart enough to figure it out.
However, in an earlier scene a student is turned into a hundred year old man when they try to artificially age themselves with a potion and put their name into the cup. Meaning someone trying to dangerously age themselves with potion they aren’t familiar with was something the teachers genuinely considered to be more likely than someone asking for fucking help from another student.
In other words, the wizards in Harry Potter’s world are so reliant on magic that it doesn’t occur to anyone save for people like Harry that asking for help is even an option in a given situation. This explains why wizards are so fucking ass-backwards at everything, they’re so confident that their magic is capable of doing everything for them that it has never occurred to fucking anyone that perhaps asking for help from the muggle world might be of some use.
Think about it, the wizarding world hasn’t changed in hundreds of years while in that same space of time the muggle world has figured out fucking space travel. I know it’s a cliché to say to say someone could have fucking shot Voldemort, but seriously, somebody totally fucking could have, he killed like 50 people, he was effectively a terrorist, if anyone in the wizarding world bothered to ask for help from the muggles instead of just telling them there was an invisible asshole flying around shooting death curses at everyone, they may have been able to help.
Pretty much the only reason Voldermort thinks he’s better than muggles is because he’s able to kill them with impunity using magic, something he’s only able to do so easily because muggles don’t understand what magic is. Voldemort is basically like a fucking disease, he’s an invisible, lurking entity preying on mankind from the shadows like a cowardly piece of shit. You know what else did that? Smallpox and we stomped that to death the second we understood it. That’s the difference between muggles and wizards, when muggles don’t understand something, they figure it out.
And here’s the kicker, the only reason muggles don’t understand magic at all is because the wizarding world deliberately withholds information about it. However, even if the wizarding world kept doing that, it’d only be a matter of time until a muggle figured out what magic was and how to stop or harness it because that’s what humanity does, it pushes past what we think is impossible to see what’s on the other side. We didn’t understand the sun as a species originally and now we use it to power satellites and smartphones.
The wizarding world isn’t a realm of infinite possibilities, it’s a universe of strict limitations where boundaries are never questioned. The muggle world is where the real magic happens. That’s why during the course of the Harry Potter books, which are set between 1991 and 1998, the muggle world (our world) discovered dark matter, cloned a sheep and invented fucking MP3s while the wizarding world were literally paying some dipshit to figure out what the purpose of a rubber duck was.
Wow, I really shouldn’t think about this stuff when it’s like 3AM, it gets kind of dark.
There is nothing more frustrating than hating a book you are reading but are too stubborn to quit and then being devastated by the ending no one warned you about.
