My boyfriend broke up with me and my 80 year old, 5 foot tall, Indian grandmother told me that “there are lots of men…”

I thought she was then going to say “…in the sea” but she said “…they’re like flies” and made a disgusted face.

She hates flies.

I like the sound of your grandmother.

So basically all these separate posts are kind of combining into my head into this one epic fantasy series with mermaids and knights and dragons and pirates

where all the relevant characters are lesbians.

"32,975"

That’s the number of arrest warrants issued in Ferguson last year for nonviolent crimes. Compare that to the population of 21,135 people.

Ferguson is making bank off its own citizens

Five-year-old Navajo boy sent home from school for his long hair

A five-year-old boy who is a member of the Navajo Nation was sent home from kindergarten for having long hair.
April Wilson said her son, Malachi, was excited for the first day of school on Monday at F.J. Young Elementary in Texas. But he was disappointed when he was told the length of his hair violated school policy.

It makes me happy to know I’m pretty much the same height as Spider-Man.

Wait, Tony Stark’s not really 6’6” is he? That must be with the armor.

For some reason, it weirds me out that I’m taller than Cap and Punisher and the Thing, but it would weird me out if I wasn’t taller than Tony.

 he’s 6’6” in his iron man suit.  616!Tony is around 6’1” or something out of his suit.

This is the kind of world we live in today

If your suggestion as an administrator is to tell a teenage girl to go under the knife instead of telling a teenage boy to respect women, you are in the wrong damn line of work.

That school should be closed.

What a disgrace.

Antonio the Cava is a retired teacher. After 42 years of teaching he decided that he could do more by spreading the love of reading to children who were unable to get to a library. Thus, in 2003, he bought a second-hand motorbike and modified it to create a portable library that contains 700 books and has been traveling since then.

Each week he drives to the villages in the region of Basilicata in southern Italy. The sound of an organ announces his arrival. When they hear the song, excited children run to the mobile library for their next book. Antonio travels over 300 miles a month without any compensation, just to make children smile and invest in their futures. What an incredible inspiration he is. Thank you Antonio for all that you do!

I find this hilarious since there have only been two whole episodes set in Victorian London since 2010. 

Ooh, that’s true actually. “The Crimson Horror” was largely set in Yorkshire, and most of “The Name of the Doctor” wasn’t even on Earth. The last one before “The Snowmen” (2012) was 2008’s “The Next Doctor”.

There have been exactly six episodes in the entirety of New Who set in the Victorian era

  • The Unquiet Dead - Cardiff Wales, December 24th, 1869, series one
  • Tooth and Claw - rural Scotland, sometime in 1879 with Queen Vicky herself, series two
  • The Next Doctor - London, December 24th, 1851, series four special
  • The Snowmen - London, December 24th, 1892, series seven special
  • The Crimson Horror - Yorkshire, sometime in 1893, series seven
  • Deep Breath - London, sometime in 1893 (possibly 94, I can’t remember), series eight.

Yes, half of those are bulked in the last twelve episodes. That tends to happen when you have reoccurring characters from that era. 

But that’s still a wide span of fifty years and several different locations. And still only six episodes out what currently totals as 105 episodes (if my math is right). Don’t see what there is to complain about.

I don’t know if they count considering they’re outside of Britain and don’t really use “Victorian era” tropes, but “Vincent and the Doctor” is set in France in 1890 and “A Town Called Mercy” is set in a pre-electricity age in the Old West a few years after an unspecified war (probably the American Civil War). Which just adds further diversity to the timespan and locations really.

There’s those too. Fascinating era, the second half of the 19th century. Lots of important things happening. Is it any wonder they keep coming back to it?

But still, with those two it’s only eight episodes out of 105. Which is less than eight percent of New Who.

I think Doctor Who may have done more with World Wars 1 and 2 than it has with the Victorian era, and they actually had a companion from the Victorian era at one point.
