everyone’s like “hA HA EASTER IS ON 4/20 LOL BLAZE IT PRAISE IT”

and then in Britain we’re just like “it’s 20/4 don’t blaze anything except the toaster for some hot cross buns and the kettle for an accompanying cup of tea” 

To all the Tumblr users who tend to use tags very liberally:

Let’s play a game.

Type the following words into your tags box, then post the first automatic tag that comes up.

you, also, what, when, why, how, look, because, never

I have literally been waiting for this gifset for all time

The current control panel of a Harrier Plus.
Hare for speed. I have 5 speed settings, and if I want to slow down when on a higher speed, I have to go through the remaining speeds to get back to whatever lower speed I want be on.
Horn for, erm, well, the horn. It makes a tone noise rather than a beep or a high squeal.
The power button is self explanatory.
This wheelchair is tilt capable, but I don’t have that function because, apparently, it’s not compatible with a J3 back.
Headlights, because this control panel is also for some of the larger models and some of the larger models are heavier enough to legally require headlights.
Same goes for the warning lights and turn signals.

Serious Question

Were The Beatles aware of slash?

Cos, well, poeple say slash wasn’t a well known thing until the late 60s, but then Watson/Holmes existed way before that, so…

I can’t believe there weren’t Beatles slashers back then, so there Must have been and they must have been aware of it, right?

The Mail on Sunday are a bunch of fucking scumbags.

THEY FUCKING STOLE FROM A FOOD BANK IN ORDER TO MAKE A STORY FOR THEIR SHITTY GODDAMN NEWSPAPER.

THIS IS LITERALLY ILLEGAL.

Not only are they a bunch of fucking shitheads, they’re terrible journalists as well….

OMG SOME POSED AS A FAMILY DAD WITH CHILDREN WHO WERE HUNGRY AND THEY GAVE THEM FOOOD???
AT A FOOD BANK???????

Yup. Welcome to the scum that is the DM. 

I want to say new low.  But that probably isn’t applicable.

I’m not clicking on the link because I don’t want them to get the 0.0001 advertising revenue that would generate.

I don’t think it’s possible for the Daily Heil to reach new lows. They found the lowest spot humanly possibly and decided to set up home.
Shit like this is why I blocked the domain (along with the Scum, the Express and the Torygraph) through my router. Past me yells at present me every time I end up anywhere near them. A++++ would recommend.

If I said “Caution: Hostage”…

would anyone else know what I’m on about?

Cos I’m catching up on it now and I’ve forgotten how good some forum!Fic could be.

McFly/Busted friends?

I don’t know if many people from the old com are still around on here (I’m very bad at keeping track of usernames that change D:) but any of yous going to be at the Echo Arena tomorrow?

Have some britishisms of the home

Wash bowl = Sink

Room with a toilet in it = Toilet or Loo. Or Bathroom to be polite, even if it doesn’t have a bath in it.

Not Wash room, not rest room, not WC (who even says WC outloud anyway? And the only time I ever see a toilet being referred to as a WC is in tourist information centres)

The shop you go into that you pay to use the washing machines to wash your laundry? Launderettes. Some places do have “laundromats”, as in the chain, but that’s like calling all fast food restaurants McDonalds or all coffee shops Starbucks. 

Diapers = Nappies. 

I’m aware this next one could actually be a regionalism and open up a whole new kettle of fish, but…

Housecoat = Dressing gown.

 Our “housecoats” are different things. It’s two different things, actually.

One type of housecoat is this protective overhead apron-like overall that you’d wear whilst cleaning around the house, they seemed very popular in the 1950s and 1960s, and were usually brown or blue. I’m sure Vera Duckworth and Nora Batty used to wear them.

The other is an overhead women’s dressing gown that only zips (or otherwise fastens) half way down the body. They’re usually made of fleece, so it’s like a jumper nightgown thingy that goes over your nightclothes. 

I highly doubt Sherlock would wear one of them. They’re not practical, and let me tell you from experience, not worth the faff when it comes to needing to take them off cos you’re too warm. Wrestling your arms out of them only make you hotter. 

Nappies!

Not Diapers.

No More Heroes by Alioseven

Sudden craving to re-read it but alas it is no more, a fact supported by the powers of 404.

Alioseven, if you’re out there, I miss your fic.

Think about this shit.

This is the third time the bill has failed, following defeats in 2010 and 2012.
The Paycheck Fairness Act would require employers to disclose payment and demographic information and prevent them from punishing workers who discuss their salaries. It would also allow civil pay discrimination lawsuits to be filed against employers.
Republicans opposed the bill, arguing it would encourage “frivolous” lawsuits and deprive women of workplace flexibility.- MSNBC

Let’s not forget, this bill helps women and men!
