House Ravenclaw.

I am discontented with reality. My letter from Hogwarts is over a decade late now, and I'm still not a werewolf or a Jedi.

There was a documentary done on the “Gully Queens" and their means of living done either earlier this year, or last year. I watched it, and it just solidified what I already knew about the country my mother and father are from.

So when word got to me about the one this photo set comes from I promised myself I wouldn’t watch it because it’s a reality I didn’t want to face again. But it was on my dash, and decided to press play. This is what life is like in Jamaica for LGBTQ people. This is what law enforcement (who is supposed to protect the people feels lesbian & bisexual women need).

In the documentary they also bring up the story about the mob who surrounded the store that the man who was seen putting lipstick on, and another who was shot and killed for dressing in drag. It’s a very dangerous thing being queer and living in the west indies.

Its amazing that at no point during the last week, someone in a position of power hasn’t said, “ok lets just arrest him to calm things down. We have enough evidence to suspect he may have broken the law. We’ll figure the fine details out later”. 

Apparently that hasn’t been seen as a viable option throughout all this chaos.

Apparently, in an attempt to paint Michael Brown as anything less than innocent, people have been spreading an image of an armed 17-year-old Joda Cain around the web and claiming that it’s Michael Brown.

Joda Cain is accused of murder in my home state of Oregon, and has literally jack shit to do with the Michael Brown murder in Ferguson, Missouri. THESE ARE NOT THE SAME PEOPLE. Anyone using the above image as “proof” that Michael Brown “deserved” to be shot should be called out for defamation, and promptly thrown down a spiral staircase. 

The bottom photo is the real Michael Brown. He was called a “gentle giant” by friends and family. He was unarmed and innocent, and he was murdered by a police officer after being shot more than seven times at close range. Witnesses, including a friend who was with him at the time of the shooting, all agree that he was doing nothing deserving of such violent actions from the officer who gunned him down.

Source: Understanding the phenomenon of synesthesia.

Follow Francesca Mura on Pinterest

I experience forms of this. 

I have grapheme-color synesthesia. I made a post about it, like, a year ago. Where did I put that thing? Anyway, I’m an associator. :D

I remember reading about this in horrible science when I was young. There was a guy could apparently remember everything in his life due to synesthesia. I also remember he once told someone: “What a crumbly yellow voice you have!”

No formal diagnosis but ordinal-linguistic personification represent! It’s letters, numerals, and months for me. Letters are the strongest one.

reblogging with all the crap because it has the source but oh hey, i’m actually confirmed by a doctor to have this. it’s the most frustratingly beautiful thing.

I am so goddamned jealous im not a synaesthete.

Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.

Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.

I’m going to keep reblogging this until it reaches its goal
