this is the best thing in the entire world
she should greet jane as if nothing happened and see how jane reacts
she should avoid school the next day. And the next. Every night, she should put on the exact outfit she had on that day, hose herself down until she’s completely drenched and stand in Jane’s yard. When Jane is home alone, she should approach the window, staring at her. Knock on it if you don’t have her attention.
That’ll get her back for killing you and trying to hide the evidence.
Ease up there, Satan.
Ease up? SHE TRIED TO KILL HER
IS THIS A FUCKING RAINBOW CHEESECAKE?????
I AM FUCKING MAKING THIS.

Reblogging for future reference.
babies are naturally able to swim hello they just spent nine moths in amiotic fluid this is instinctive so no, parent is not shitty, parent is re-enforcing baby’s natural instinctive behaviour.
parent is good for doing this because parent is basically saying “yes the behaviours you were born with are great!”
Yup, if babies are ‘taught’ (allowed) to swim before they are six weeks old, they never lose the instincts they were born with that lets them hold their head above water and hold their breath when they need to. SCIENCE, man.
What’s really cool is, humans are the only primates known to have this instinct at birth. Other ape babies would just freak out and drown. So I don’t think it comes from being in amniotic fluid for 9 months (since it’s not like they have room to actually swim in there). It’s been speculated that humans evolved in the ocean at some point, which is a really cool theory that I recommend checking out.
Also, SWIMMING BABY IS ADORABLE.
omg i want a whole pool full of babies swimming
"Children are required to be in school, where their freedom is greatly restricted, far more than most adults would tolerate in their workplaces. In recent decades we’ve been compelling them to spend ever more time in this kind of setting, and there’s strong evidence that this is causing psychological damage to many of them. And as scientists have investigated how children naturally learn, they’ve realized that kids do so most deeply and fully, and with greatest enthusiasm, in conditions that are almost opposite to those of school….
Most people assume that the basic design of today’s schools emerged from scientific evidence about how children learn. But nothing could be further from the truth.
Schools as we know them today are a product of history, not research.
Research has shown that people of all ages learn best when they are self-motivated, pursuing answers to questions that reflect their personal interests and achieving goals that they’ve set for themselves. Under such conditions, learning is usually joyful.
The evidence for all of this is obvious to anyone who’s watched a child grow from infancy to school age. Through their own efforts, children figure out how to walk, run, jump, and climb. They learn from scratch their native language, and with that, they learn to assert their will, argue, amuse, annoy, befriend, charm, and ask questions.
They do all of this before anyone, in any systematic way, tries to teach them anything.
This amazing drive and capacity to learn does not turn itself off when children reach five or six. But we turn it off with our coercive system of schooling.”
Gosh I could go into so much more detail about how true this is and how messed up our school-system is, but I just tried typing it out and I have way to much to say. But yeah. Schools, for the most part, ruin how wonderful of a thing learning is by putting people in a bad environment, making it into a competition, and putting so much work/stress on kids that they have to make sacrifices to either their grades or their hobbies/health/etc. This frustrates me so muchIt’s amazing how this is only an issue for the generation now. My generation had to go to school, at the risk of the truant officer and or a round with the belt. We had no choice in the matter. Just saying.
Was your generation killing themselves? Was everyone you knew suicidal because of school? Was everyone you knew failing every class? You didn’t have to deal with what we deal with. We’re not a bunch of numbskulls, we know what hurts us. This isn’t about lethargy or angst. The system is broken, and we’re all suffering from it. So shut your mother fucking mouth about “your generation”
Kiss my goddamn ass.Fuck you you idiot child. Don’t you dare fucking say anything to me about my generation, about school friends I lost, those who didn’t fucking make it to high school because they were murdered by their families, the classmate who was shot to death in front of my high school by a passing car two months before graduation. Your fucking spoiled hooked into the internet like a lifeline generation knows nothing about pain. To you pain is a snapshot loaded to snapchat from your little pink iPhones and the more hits you get for the most shocking photo of all. Pain to your generation is receiving the ipad 3 instead the ipad air and taking to twitter to tell the world that your parents are a pack of assholes. Bite my tax paying ass that pays to keep your school running and grow the fuck up. We had to go to school no matter how uninspired or inspired we were, that was the law, why should this Z generation not have to suffer through the 12 years like the ones before it? What makes them so special? Kids in my gen were also killing themselves, that tragedy never changes, we always had the kids who took the hard way out because their home life was either intolerable or they had an emotional bust up with an ex. But not all of us did, the majority of us survived, went onto college, had a career and families. Now get the fuck out of my blog.
You tell them Red. The was a retarded thing of that person to say. Because YES, every generation has been suicidal and every generation has those kids that are overworked. Wow hi I was both of those when I was in school. I was 9 years old when Columbine happened and eleven when 9/11 happened. We had a rapist in our school bathroom and two year after I graduated from highschool, I saw my highschool on the news because there was a fucking bomb threat. I had people I knew fucking die crossing the street to get to school. We had suicides, we had overdose we had police dogs on campus and we lived in fear. Do not get me started on the things my parents experienced in school.
This generation is not a special snowflake generation.
But back to the original point. Our school system is terrible. I have a school teacher for a stemom and I just CANT. I hate the way things are run. My mom pulled me out and homeschooled for three years and OH MY GOD I ACTUALLY LIKED SCHOOL. I was free to work at my own pace, I was allowed to get a snack from the fridge when I was hungry. I was allowed to get distracted researching something that interested me. I got up at 8am and I was done by noon and free to do whatever I wanted for the rest of the day. I was able to go on a across country road trip and stay an extra week in Mississippi when my grandpa got sick because i had my work with me. My aunt homeschool all nine of her kids and OH MY GOD they were wickedly intelligent.
I cant stand how everyone has to learn at the pace that teachers dictate, especially once you;re in middle and highschool because they just DONT have the time to help every one. 30+ kids in up to six different periods in one day? It;s stressful for students and its stressful for teachers.
And now we have to put our kids in school YOUNGER than we were when we started. When I was little, preschool WAS NOT a requirement. It was basically a jump start thing if you could afford to put your kid through it. Fancy daycare, in other words. By the time my brother was that age, my mom skipped preschool (because hey I didnt HAVE to go at that age even though Dad put me in it because both he and Mom worked full time jobs). But when Jake got to Kindergarten my mom was informed that he would be held back because he didnt start school on time and go to preschool.
So basically Children are in school from 3/4 years old until they are 18, learning the way the state dictates they will learn and too fucking bad if they cant keep up. It;s ridiculous.
finally someone put up the whole thing, tragically beautiful
I know someone will ask, so this is from the movie Watchmen. The entire movie has nothing to do with this scene, really, considering it’s about heroes. But it is a beautiful opener.
If you think Watchmen had nothing to do with this scene ‘because it’s about heroes’ then you totally missed the point of the movie.
For the bolded….
YOU ARE THE HERO GOTHAM DESERVES
I’M CRYING BECAUSE OF THAT CAPTION
I AM DED
it ok to not be ready
Please spread this shit like wildfire. People go on and sit through the whole experience and they’re uncomfortable because they just want to please their partner and they don’t tell them that they want to stop because they are not ready. It’s okay not to be ready.
