Not only was she the first female writer to make the Forbes billionaires list, she then became one of the very few people to take herself off that list by giving so much to charity that it actually made a dent in her fortune.
And she gets it. There aren’t enough generous billionaires in the world who remember where they came from, therefore private charity isn’t the ultimate (only) answer to poverty like some politicians would have us believe. We are all interconnected, we all need each other, in democratic countries we are part of the government, and so keeping needy people from falling into complete destitution and despair is an important and worthy role for government to take. It benefits all of us in the long run. And nobody who feels comfortable and secure now (fewer and fewer of those people around these days) has any guarantee they won’t need help themselves someday.
JK Rowling…reason numbers 2.7 billion why I adore this woman.
That’s it, I’m moving to London…
Best Pope story yet?
Pope Francis has been sneaking out of the Vatican at night to serve the homeless.
The Pope for people who don’t like popes strikes again.
HE WAS ALSO A BOUNCER AT A NIGHTCLUB
I love how Sarah Jane is actually included in this one, how she’s older than the rest of the kids, and how she’s holding a puppy K-9.
Cuteness overload, Whovian style!
There’s a switch on the ceiling of my new dorm room and I really really want to flip it. But I’m also afraid of destroying the universe because I have no idea what it does.
The general consensus is “flip it” and variations thereof. But I must wait until the right moment.
what do you mean you have to wait for the right moment????? do the stars have to be in alignment???? must the gods whisper the time into your left ear????? flip the switch
Look at the details! The dog bowl says ‘Loki’, and the license plate is “ASG4RD” or Asgard.
It’s cut off in the gif, but the mom’s coffee cup has a Stark label on it.
I still declare that the best part of this is that she’s a little girl cosplaying Thor. :3
I agree with the headcanon that Thor was just casually flying past at the time and saw this little girl and thought, “This young maiden wishes to emulate her hero. I SHALL ASSIST HER!” and then makes lighting shoot out of her hammer so that the car explodes and flies off with the biggest grin on his face.
Okay, I’m going to make this post ONCE and that’s all.
Many of you have probably seen the above gif floating around the internet. It’s been reposted on Tumblr(one post has over 137K notes and wasn’t credited at all) what seems like a hundred times, it’s showed up on Imgur, Reddit, iFunny and other places around the internet. I’ve seen people fight about “posting it first” and arguing with others who had “reposted it from them”. I’ve seen people confuse it with behind the scenes footage from The Avengers(??) and I’ve seen people credit other cosplayers and cosplay groups for it.
This gif belongs to me. It was created last year around this time for fun and the original post had two other gifs that went along with it. So not only were myself and my fellow cosplaying friend not credited but the whole gifset wasn’t even seen. I want to set the record straight now because I’ve seen hundreds of comments around the internet of people asking where this came from and very few had the correct answer for it.
Original post: Do I look like a reindeer to you?
Loki: the-bucky-barnes (DA Account )
Tony Stark: colonel-bastard
And you can look at my Loki Cosplay Tag for other photos and gif sets(yes there are a lot more!).
PLEASE REBLOG THIS, I want to get the word out there as much as possible. And please, please, please do not steal and repost cosplay material from someone without properly crediting the source! Thank you!
