the most unrealistic thing about high school musical is that they let ryan wear hats in class
Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.
Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.
Re-reblogging for that last part

hyuuganejies: the differences in zuko’s firebending from book 1, book 2, and book 3.
ugh i’m sorry to latch on but i just have to talk about this okay
in season 1, zuko is skilled but obviously still learning. his bending is very sharp and harsh. he has a lot of anger, but he doesn’t know how to control it and i think that distracts him regarding his bending. his desperation to learn more advanced techniques and be stronger shows in his aggression with his firebending.
in season 2, zuko has gotten more skilled, but he’s also very confused. his firebending is more explosive, even excessive, and a little less well-controlled, despite zuko’s clear grasp of technique.
in season 3, zuko is finally coming into his own. he understands his destiny now and while he’s still angry, it has subdued and he’s able to control the anger so that it ENHANCES his bending instead of destabilizing it like it did in the past. in accordance, his bending has gotten more fluid and less aggressive. he shows, especially after the dragon adventure, to have massive amounts power and an adeptness in handling it.
i think, when watching the show, it’s hard to see the subtle shifting of the changes in his firebending, but in this gifset it’s more obvious. ugh i just have a lot of zuko feels okay
This little scene broke my heart. The girl who believed in nargles, in wrackspurts and blibbering humdingers, has become the girl who believed no more.
i tHINK IM GOING TO START CRYING NW
See, the thing that nobody understands, is that Luna believed in things that had proof. She’s a Ravenclaw, a genius, an expert in the unseen but proven. I mean, if she’d started talking about Thestrals before Harry had been able to see them, saying that there was an invisible winged horse pulling the carriages that only people that had witnessed death could see? You’d have thought THAT was crazy, too.
Luna knows Nargles and Wrackspurts are out there. As far as she knows, there’s proof of it.
But seashells hanging in a door? Those don’t do anything, nothing but give you a false sense of security.
It’s not that Luna doesn’t believe. It’s that now, as always, she’s frank and straightforward. Seashells can’t keep the evil at bay. Nothing can.
Thank you. She is not a naive little kid who believes everything you tell her. She just knows some things we don’t. Because she looks harder.
well now hold on a minute, this makes no sense. Because there was absolutely no proof of crumple horned snorkacks or whatever they were and she still believed in them. Even when the supposed ‘horn’ from one turned out to be a lie she still believed in them. Even though we know she never found proof of them during her career as a naturalist, she continues to believe in them.
Same with Nargles and Wrackspurts, there was never any proof of any of the things she believed in, that was what hermione had such a problem with. If Luna had mentioned Thestrals and someone was like yeah right, she could pull out a book and prove it to them. The things she believed in were just that, her personal beliefs. Things above the norm of the majority. Like muggles who believe in aliens. yes they might believe in them, might believe without a doubt they were abducted, but try convincing someone else when you have no verifiable proof.
this reference to muggles believing something that isn’t proven is definitely an out of character thing to say, so I think irishwolfling made a good observation.
I blinked one day and when I opened my eyes, it was normal to have an American army battling Americans on American streets. No one even calls it a war. But it is.
