magical girl anime in wh the girls get sweaty and bloody and bruised bc they’re beating the shit out of their enemies with their fists while wearing sports bras and spandex shorts and lax tanks and lift heavy weights in their free time
the only card i will ever send
i always get lost thinking katara’s mum actually was a waterbender, whoops
yeah, i absolutely agree—while i don’t personally know how that would feel, i can imagine jinora, from what we know of her, really internalizing that and putting her energy into her studies and her heritage. i’m glad it’s canon she has siblings so she doesn’t have to carry that alone like tenzin and aang (and i’m sorry you feel that effect as well)! :c
i got lost on youtube watching various magical girl transformation sequences because don’t ask but i decided to make my way over to dragonball z transformations and let me tell u it is a fuckin TRAVESTY there weren’t any female saiyans in this show (or more magical girl anime like this one) because i would pay EXTREMELY GOOD MONEY to have girls powering up by screaming the shit out of their throat and flexing their muscles and bursting into smth even more powerful
last night after a two-hour long stint at happy hour my 22 y/o friends and i decided that the only way to get to the dining hall to make it in time before it closed was to run like naruto
a thousand past lifetimes, written into the earth
happy international womens day!!!!! some ladies dancin’!!!!

If you aren’t totally quaking in your boots at the news of millions of bees dead, yet again, you’re nuts.
this should be concerning a lot more people than it is
not only because bees are one of the most important animals in the world and their job is a lot more than gathering honey but also because they are what scientists refer to as an “indicator species”
this means that when their populations start dwindling and then rapidly dropping, humans need to watch their shit because that means that environmental factors are too difficult for THEM to live in, so it might be difficult for US to live in, too. bees basically act as an indication that humans have a lot to worry about and when they start dying like this it deserves a lot more than a few headlines.
last year my biggest worry was the steep decline in bee population and apparently thats not about to change anytime soon. people have told me to my face that they think its strange I’m so concerned for the bees. read this you selfish fucks
Get excited, motherfuckers. Without bees, we will die off. Bayer and Monsanto continue to produce the chemicals that have been proven to kill them, and the government has their backs. Bees pollinate 30% of our food in the US and we are passing legislation to PROTECT the scumbags responsible for killing them.
I preach this shit to everyone who will listen and I always get “WAAAAH I HATE BEES THEY STING AND THEY ARE BIG MEANIES!” but think about your future life without kiwis, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, sunflowers, cotton, apples, plums, pears, mustard, celery, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, beans, cherries, melons, turnips, canola oil, alfalfa, soybeans, lemons, oranges, and I could go on forever.
Bees are amazing creatures who are responsible for the comfortable lives we lead in this country and we cannot sustain and feed our population without them.
Alright you guys, there’s a good amount of notes on this but it’s only making us aware of the problem, not telling us what we can do to help. We can do something to help and YOU CAN HELP, YES THAT MEANS YOU. ALL YOU NEED IS DIRT, A FEW BUCKS, AND A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE, LITERALLY.
Plant flowers that bees like and that attract them.
Bees prefer flowers that are blue, purple, and yellow. Choose flowers that bloom successively over the spring, summer, and fall seasons such as coreopsis, Russian sage, or germander. They especially love clover! Other plants include sage, salvia, oregano, lavender, ironweed, yarrow, yellow hyssop, alfalfa, honeywort, dragonhead, echinacea, bee balm, buttercup, goldenrod and English thyme. Buy seeds online.
GET RID OF THE PESTICIDES!!
If pesticides are killing off the bees so easily, what do you think it’s doing to us? The EPA says studies have shown pesticides can cause birth defects, nerve damage, and cancer. There are other ways to get rid of pests in the garden than using chemicals. Organic Garden Pests shows you how to keep off the bugs the organic way.
Give the bees a free home!
Please, if you have already reblogged this, reblog this is again with what I have posted onto it so you know what you can do to help. We can make a difference.

Quick mention of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, a nonprofit group doing a LOT of good work for bees and other pollinators, among others.
Guys, if all the bees died we’d have FOUR YEARS to live.
"My dad was the first person I called when I got this role and I said to him, ‘Daddy do you know Brad Pitt? I’m going to be in a movie with him. And he said, ‘I don’t know him personally, but I’m glad you got a job’ So am I so am I!’"
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
ooh so waterbending skipping a generation? oh man… not only would tenzin feel even more pressure about the future of airbenders he’d probably take that out on jinora, too, and burden her with that really early. and we all know jinora would handle it with the maturity she does but she’s still a little girl and that would be rough ahhh ;_;
