NFL Week 10 Recap: The One Where Everybody Got Concussions

Brain injuries are no laughing matter, but let’s mock this week’s NFL action anyway.

Well said. Well said indeed.

I went to the mall, and a little girl called me a terrorist. 

My name is Ela.  I am seventeen years old.  I am not Muslim, but my friend told me about her friend being discriminated against for wearing a hijab.  So I decided to see the discrimination firsthand to get a better understanding of what Muslim women go through. 

My friend and I pinned scarves around our heads, and then we went to the mall.  Normally, vendors try to get us to buy things and ask us to sample a snack.  Clerks usually ask us if we need help, tell us about sales, and smile at us.  Not today.  People, including vendors, clerks, and other shoppers, wouldn’t look at us.  They didn’t talk to us.  They acted like we didn’t exist.  They didn’t want to be caught staring at us, so they didn’t look at all. 

And then, in one store, a girl (who looked about four years old) asked her mom if my friend and I were terrorists.  She wasn’t trying to be mean or anything.  I don’t even think she could have grasped the idea of prejudice.  However, her mother’s response is one I can never forgive or forget.  The mother hushed her child, glared at me, and then took her daughter by the hand and led her out of the store. 

All that because I put a scarf on my head.  Just like that, a mother taught her little girl that being Muslim was evil.  It didn’t matter that I was a nice person.  All that mattered was that I looked different.  That little girl may grow up and teach her children the same thing. 

This experiment gave me a huge wakeup call.  It lasted for only a few hours, so I can’t even begin to imagine how much prejudice Muslim girls go through every day.  It reminded me of something that many people know but rarely remember: the women in hijabs are people, just like all those women out there who aren’t Muslim. 

People of Tumblr, please help me spread this message.  Treat Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Taoists, etc., exactly the way you want to be treated, regardless of what they’re wearing or not wearing, no exceptions.  Reblog this.  Tell your friends.  I don’t know that the world will ever totally wipe out prejudice, but we can try, one blog at a time.  

this is so perfect in absolutely every single way.

The truth, sad though it is.

However, one can only hope…

Joe Biden’s VP Debate Checklist [Click for full article]
There’s a lot of pressure on ol’ Uncle Joe tonight. And with the future of the country (sort of) on his shoulders, the fella’s gotta stay on track.
- Breathe, smile, and just do what you’ve been practicing. You’ve gotten some great advice over these past few days and you need to STICK TO IT. Ya got this, champ.
- Right off the bat – make jokes, lots of jokes. People are SO wound up and worried about being OFFENDED these days, my GOSH, so just loosen the place UP for Pete’s sake. The one about the Indian and the Rabbi in the hot air balloon is a good start. Gotta get the crowd on your side from the beginning.
- Make sure you look Ryan dead in the eyes with those mean Wilmington peepers and rattle that Midwestern wimp to his core. Don’t be afraid to scare the living bejeezus out of that pretty boy chump. With Mean, Lean Joe Biden looking across the table at him, he’ll crumple like paper. That Delaware grit ain’t there for nothin’, I’ll tell ya that much.
- Be clear, calm, and precise with figures and statistics. Don’t get overexcited and start jumpin’ up and prancin’ around like some sort of San Francisco Ballerina man – my gosh, can you imagine – so just cool it, alright?
- Don’t hold back on calling Rep. Ryan out when he twists the facts (or saying he looks like a weasel with some constipation issues – jeez Louise, Joe, will ya calm down already, save these gems for the STAGE, c’mon man!) Continue reading here

Perfect.

Martin and Sir Ian McKellen at SDCC [x]


I love how Martin and Sir Ian are making the same sort of duckface in the bottom one.

Sir Ian’s duckface more subtle and sophisticated, of course.

Martin’s however…

Gotta love McKellen. :3
