The amount of notes concerns me
i’m more concerned about the fact that this orange is still on the loose he could kill again at any time
the newspapers give this notorious killer a nickname
much to the dismay of the lead detective
BLOOD ORANGE OH MY GOD I’M CRYING
i cRY THIS IS AMAZING
Insects actually have no importance of any kind in food webs and all that. If there were no insects on earth we would all be better off and there would be no repercussions whatsoever. want more proof? mars doesn’t have insects and it is doing fine. it’s red but it’s fine
THIS WILL BE SUCH A LONG MARATHON AND I AM SO READY
That’s prob about 12 hours
extended lotr alone is 11 hours and 22 minutes.
to watch the extended versions of both the hobbit and lord of the rings it would take roughly 20 hours i can’t wait
I AM READY.
This is how we weed out the weak and unworthy.
my favourite thing about William Shatner is that he is obsessed with Reddit, he goes on there all the time and talks about it all the time, its so good, and then one day, he got really upset with the behaviour of [coughing]the majority of redditors[/coughing] and…
What’s In My Purse?
this gifset made me curious so i checked. there is a white bean turkey chili tupperware in there
most of the contents have presumably fallen out. remaining:
- one (1) pristine white sock
- one (1) packet cranberry supplements, partially eaten
- two (2) alcohol prep swabs
- two (2) small black rubber???? things???
- a dime
- one (1) eraser in shape of fire engine
there was also a macaroon but i ate it
holy shit there is a name for it
Well damn. Explains a lot.
Suddenly I understand some of my fan base a LOT better. That is Awesome.
"holy shit there is a name for it" was my reaction before I even scrolled down to the comments.
I just need to keep reblogging this because I cannot even begin to tell you how profound a feeling of YES and THIS and THERE IS A WORD FOR ME OMG I get every time I see this, and I hope it helps others too.
seriously, anytime you see a post with a comment saying “theres a name for it?!” reblog that post because even if it doesnt apply to you any of your followers could be waiting for that revelation.
OK SO EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT GLASGOW YOU WILL KNOW FROM THIS STATUE
THIS MY FRIENDS IS THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON STATUE IN ROYAL EXCHANGE SQUARE IN GLASGOW AND YES HE HAS A TRAFFIC CONE ON HIS HEAD
NOW LET ME TELL YOU I HAVE LIVED IN GLASGOW FOR 18 AND A HALF YEARS AND NOT ONCE HAVE I SEEN THIS MAN WITHOUT A CONE ON HIS HEAD
IT HAS BEEN REMOVED SO MANY TIMES BY THE COUNCIL BUT SOMEHOW IT ALWAYS SEEMS TO GET BACK UP THERE AND ITS NOT A SMALL STATUE ITS PRETTY FUCKING BIG SO WHOEVER KEEPS ON PUTTING UP THERE IS A DETERMINED WEE FUCKER
IT HAS BECOME A NATIONAL SYMBOL FOR GLASGOW CAUSE ITS JUST THE EPITOME OF GLASWEGIAN HUMOUR AND THEY EVEN PAINTED THE CONE FUCKING GOLD FOR THE OLYMPICS
AND A FEW MONTHS AGO THE COUNCIL SAID THEY WERE GOING TO RAISE UP THE STATUE SO PEOPLE COULDNT PUT THE CONE ON AND LET ME TELL YOU IT WAS FUCKING PANDAEMONIUM ABOUT GLASGOW IT WAS AS IF WORLD WAR THREE HAD BROKEN OUT THERE WERE FACEBOOK PAGES AND PROTESTS AND PETITIONS AND ALL SORTS TO KEEP THE CONE ON
SO LONG AND SHORT OF IT IS THAT THIS STUPID STATUE AND ITS STUPID CONE IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SCOTS IN PARTICULAR GLASWEGIANS CAUSE WE CANT DECIDE WHETHER WE WANT TO RULE OUR OWN COUNTRY OR NOT BUT IF YOU FUCKING DARE TRY TO TAKE THE CONE OFF THE DUKE OF WELLINGTONS HEAD THERE WILL BE A NATION WIDE OUTRAGE AND GLASGOWS OWN VERSION OF LES MIS WILL HAPPEN I AINT FUCKING KIDDIN
every time I see this post (i.e. about twice a year at this point) I am reminded of this book my gran had when I was a wee, wee kid.
it was a typical ladybird-style hardcover little book with illustrations and stuff, aimed at 3 year olds, with anthropomorphic vehicles going to iconic cities of the world and shit. I canNOt remember what the taxi was called, but she went to Glasgow, and the illustration of Glasgow involved the back of GOMA where this statue is, and it had a wee cone drawn on the top
it was so iconic that a children’s book artist drew a fucking cone on this statue and it was THE DEFINITIVE symbolic landmark of Glasgow
i think OP is underestimating the sheer power of the cone here. it’s been up since the early 80s at least. i’ll ask some older relatives later but like… this cone is iconic enough that i’d expect it to be on our currency in 15 years.
a facebook protest group which still posts and the wikipedia page for the statue itself are testament to the legacy of the Cone of Destiny. i cannot stress enough how sudden and violent the furore in response to plans to keep the cone off was. it was literally 100% of all local media for a few days. ~15% of the city’s population liked the protest page in a single day after plans were announced.
cone is love, cone is life.
Also, fun fact, due to the outrage over plans to adjust the statue amassing so quickly and so loudly, the plans were cancelled 16 hours later. Literally the next morning the council just went ‘our bad guys. Soz.’ The statue had a police presence for about a week after. And then when they left it had two cones (one on the horse), an iron man mask and a Hawaiian shirt.
Cats in love
