Scenery Tumblr Themes

What is there to say? I'm 21, British, and I love being a nerd. All things geeky will be on here, films, tv, books, along with places I want to go, pretty places, other cultures, and above all, love.
I love to talk to people, about anything at all, so just plonk yourself down in my ask box, skip the formalities and talk to me like we've been friends our whole lives.

I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

when “”“”educated”“”” people type a whole lot of words that mean basically nothing and u feel stupid for not understanding them at first and then u reread it and realise NO they are literally saying nothing they are just typing meaningless sentences to revel in their own smugness.

postmodernist theory

why is catcalling called catcalling? i like cats and i would quite like them calling me to see how i am or to make plans to meet for brunch, catcalling should be called something more accurate like asshole screeching or insecure masculinity 

The longer and more carefully we look at a funny storythe sadder it becomes.

what guys say PMS does:

  • turns women into emotional bitches

what PMS actually does:

  • increases breast size from retaining water
  • increases sex drive
  • lowers a woman’s tolerance for sexism

also it ups our testosterone levels which makes their complaints incredibly ironic

Hi. I would just like to emphasize how much I love this scene.

Because you know why? 

In the previous MCU movies when he was first introduced, he was just this agent tasked to babysit Tony Stark, being the person Pepper approached when things went south. He was that person to go to to get things done or when you need back-up - when you need protection. 

He was the person to get unknown objects like Thor’s hammer for the sake of everyone’s safety, to make sure it doesn’t cause any harm to anyone until they figured out what it was. He was the person who gets donuts on the way to his next task.

Like a person who does things because he was supposed to do his job.

But this scene shows why he was in this organisation. When everything was crumbling down and those men were running and yet their minds were on those boxes. Goodness knows what was in those boxes. An 084? Arm weapons? Scientific equipments? Anything important?

Yet Coulson’s instincts was for them to be out safely. His instincts were to protect. His instincts were to rescue.

Because that was what SHIELD is about, to protect the people. 

And this scene, when Coulson told them to leave everything, told them to go. He technically saved them all. When they finally got into the truck and they managed to get away, the base crumbled behind them and those were just a matter of seconds, seconds that Coulson called when he prioritised those agents’ lives

To have minimal lives lost as possible and that was what he did, save those agents. Without thinking twice. 

I freakin love AC.
