I’ve spent the past couple of days asking several hundred Grindr users in Edinburgh whether they believe Scotland should be an independent country. Replies were of variable quality. Here is a representative sample:
I’ve never been a huge no advocate (or a huge yes by that matter) but I find it hard to believe that people voted “no” simply because they were afraid. Mostly because throughout the whole campaign there was only one poll that indicated that the yes might win while all the others predicted a no…
So The Guardian did a short animated explainer on the Scottish independence referendum.
And not 15 seconds in, they likened Great Britain to a laughing troll.
And I was like wat wat wat????
Because I’ve never once thought Britain resembles a troll.
Great Britain looks like a poodle.
I’ve been seeing the Britain-poodle since I was like six.
It all started when my mom told me she thought Great Britain looks like a dog.
So I opened my geography book, looked up Great Britain. Once I’d seen it…I could never un-see it again. Ever. It’s always been a poodle to me.
I mean, look at it, please do.
Here’s The Guardian’s “laughing troll with the crazy hat” (pull the other one Guardian, it has just about as much resemblance to a wiener).
And here’s the un-seeable Britain-poodle.
I mean it’s right there! How can you not see it uuuurgh it’s plain as day!
Hah! Just worried about the referendum results, trying to let off some tension through silliness, sorry everyone! I can’t get to sleep at all :’D
Good job CNN or did 110% of the Scottish people turn up to vote?
happens all the time. :l You draw and just look at it from far and realize the eyes arent at the same level, that the nose isnt underlined and that the face shape is an oval that flinched bad bc of wind…
I can’t be the only one having this problem …
A young Rose Wilson as she appeared during Deathstroke the Hunted.
After being kidnapped by her crazy uncle Wade she was left with a scar on her cheek which artists kept on her for quite a bit (I think she had it in her Titans and New Titans appearances too), then forgot all about. Rose lost an eye further on so I suppose a scar would have seemed insignificant next to that, even if artists had kept it.

Today one of my friends was dress coded for her bra strap showing and so she wrote on the gym shirt that they gave her. It reads “Dress Code: promotes the objectification and sexualization of young bodies, blames the wearer for the onlooker’s perceptions/actions, perpetuates rape culture, and is bullshit” On the back she wrote “You can’t shame me for something I’m not ashamed for”. It was really cool seeing all of the people’s reactions who saw it and I thought what she did was pretty cool.

Think you’ve got Morgana and Merlin confused
No, I haven’t.
actually, if you’re sorted into Slytherin on Pottermore, which I was, it tells you, straight from JK Rowling herself, that Merlin was a Slytherin and was proud of it. Proud to be one of his children.
Aaaaand merlin is a pretty good physician
ah fuckin thank you whoever did this. so sick of the cliche of all “evil” characters being slytherins and none of the “good” characters being slytherins.
