Classic Hollywood Bloopers
And the greatest Hollywood blooper of all time:
These are WONDERFUL
Tumblr, we need you! A rogue Arizona State representative, John Kavanagh, wants to pass a bill that would thow trans people in jail for using public restrooms. Anyone could be asked for I.D. to “prove” their gender, and if there’s a discrepancy they could face a fine or jailtime.
When asked why the bill targeted trans people, Kavanagh explained that it’s because he thinks “they’re weird.” Outrageous.
We can stop this bill by taking action at www.allout.org/arizona and spreading the word far and wide. Will you help?
As a note, we beat Kavanaugh, Twice.
We destroyed him in the press, turning his supporters against him, and then we buried his bill in arcane rules.
That bill allowed us to create the first Statewide network of trans activists and leaders, and has allowed us, since that bill was proposed two years ago, to create a stronger and more vibrant community for trans people in Arizona.
Kavanaugh just won his primary for a an Arizona State Senate seat, and did so easily. Backed by racist groups and running mostly unopposed in a bastion of wealthy white people, he has also proposed placing armed people on school grounds, wanted to allow teachers to carry guns into classrooms, and consistently opposed any and all efforts at immigration reform.
He is also one of the people in this state who really, really hates me.
Dean’s baby was at the con!
This is so sick. Dragonite looks adorable as well.

Deputy who killed former Napster COO after drifting into the bike lane while distracted by his laptop will NOT face charges because he was answering a work-related email
All in the line of duty. If a cop who is using his laptop and isn’t paying attention to the road runs you over and kills you he won’t face charges. Just let that sink in. I wonder what would happen to me if I was responding to a work related email on my phone while driving and ran over and killed a cop… hmm…
Now you know
When Life Gives You Lemons… Buy a Tank
In 1943 the 38 year old Ukrainian woman Mariya Oktyabrskaya learned that her husband had been killed while fighting the Germans in World War II. A terrible loss for any spouse, Mariya grieved the loss of her husband in a way that is typically unusual for most widows. She sold all of her worldly possessions and used the proceeds to buy a T-34 battle tank. She agreed to donate the tank to the Red Army, but only under one condition; that she be the driver of the tank.
After completing five months of tank training, rare considering most Soviet tankers were rushed into battle, Mariya and her tank “Fighting Girlfriend” joined the 26th Guards tank brigade in September of 1943. Mariya’s skills and bravery would be proven during her first action on October 21st, 1943. There she and her tank crewmen spearheaded an assault on a fortified German position, smashing through enemy lines while destroying several machine gun nests and artillery pieces. Throughout the next year she gained a reputation as a veteran tank driver and courageous fighter. Also a skilled mechanic as well as driver, when her tank was damaged she would often jump out into the open, exposing herself to enemy fire, so that she could conduct repairs and get back into the fight.
On January 17th, 1944 while conducting her usual routine of sowing terror and destruction, Mariya’s tank took a hit from an anti-tank gun which disabled the vehicles tracks. Under heavy fire, and despite the protests of her crew, Mariya exited the tank to repair the tank. Exposed to enemy fire she was struck in the head by a piece of shrapnel. She lingered in a coma for two months before passing away on March 15th, 1944.
For her bravery and fierce conduct during World War II, Mariya was posthumously award the Heroine of the Soviet Union title on August 2nd, 1944.
Five MONTHS of tank training? Rare indeed, holy fuck. Most of them were given like three hours of training that went like: ‘HERE’S HOW YOU TURN, NOW GO ATTACK THAT PANZER BATTALION’
Still, what a badass.
I like the idea of just being able to buy a tank.
if I save 50 grand, I can buy a demilitarized t-34 :B (can’t remember if that’s with or without the engine though)
