rofl noooo it’s not and i doubt YOU actually looked it up
what were your sources? those two links in the big long celebratory post about it?
because L O fucking L those sources STRAIGHT UP SAY that pluto’s planetary status was recently a subject of a public opinion poll, not a legitimate NASA ruling.
pluto’s planetary status was discussed during a public attendance debate at the harvard school of astronomy. the audience of this lecture was given an opinion poll: should pluto be a planet? the audience voted yes.
in case you weren’t aware, opinion polls are not in fact proof of concrete changes in anything. it’s just an opinion poll. nothing more.
did you spend at least two entire seconds looking at this on google? because if so you would’ve seen all this information for yourself and wouldn’t come crying to me about it.
BEHOLD YOUR OWN SOURCES WHICH YOU DID NOT APPARENTLY READ USED AS EVIDENCE AGAINST YOUR SHODDY RESEARCH:
People Have Voted: Pluto Is A Planet! (TIME) — the people have voted! and the result of their public opinion poll does not in fact tell the IAU or NASA what to do.
Is Pluto A Planet? The Votes Are In (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) — the actual harvard coverage of the debate, which again, is only a public opinion and does not override the IAU’s ruling.
Pluto’s A Planet, According to a New Public Debate (ScienceAlert) — i’m just gonna point out that “according to a public debate” is actually part of the fucking title and leave it at that.
when in doubt, read the wiki. pluto is still a dwarf planet.
punchline: much as the IAU knows the general public would like pluto to be a planet, it is still not a fucking planet.
Educate yourselves everybody.
I think somebody had fun with this wall.
this is a nice wall. I like this wall.
If I could,
I would turn girls into dragons.
Girls whose skin
has been stained by filthy hands,
girls who are forced
to face those familiar hands
day after day,
give them armor.
Girls who are told
that womanhood means duty,
girls who break their backs
on someone else’s burden,
give them spiked spines.
Girls trapped in cycles:
cycles of abuse
cycles they can’t even name,
down the drain
and thrown out with the bathwater,
give them claws.
who chomp down on fear
hiding behind their teeth,
who swallow it whole
because it’s the only nourishment they’ll get,
give them razor fangs.
who thirst for knowledge
in the middle of a drought,
girls whose minds
are considered as real as their suffering,
give them fire
to burst from their mouths
in place of the words that no one hears.
whose bodies are not their own;
who are meant for decoration
and cannot decorate themselves,
who are meant for pleasure
and cannot pleasure themselves,
who are meant to be examples
and cannot exemplify themselves,
give them wings
to fly far, far away,
taste freedom in the sky,
and see it for what it should be:
a right, not a privilege.
who is considered a possession
or a prize
or a plaything,
confined by people
who call condescension “love”
and manipulation “compromise”
and fear “respect”
and silence “consent,”
give her eyes
that strike terror into the heart
of anyone who would call her weak.
Gift girls with dragonhood
when personhood is a myth.
BLM and Partners Excited About Condor Release on National Public Lands Day!
Today, the BLM, The Peregrine Fund and partners will release three California condors in the BLM-managed Vermillion Cliffs National Monument in Arizona.
The California condor is a magnificent and prehistoric bird that is an important part of the ecology of western states. Utah is excited to be part of the establishment of more condors. – Greg Sheehan, Director of Utah Division of Wildlife Resources
I appreciate working with Chris Parish and The Peregrine Fund biologists. They’re good people and they work hard to keep the condors alive. Justun Jones, Rancher, Kane and Two Mile Ranch, Arizona
To me the condor recovery program is a positive success story; one that is a testament to man’s good nature to do the right thing to bring this species back from the brink of extinction. BLM Vermilion Cliffs National Monument Manager Kevin Wright
The annual release coincides with National Public Lands Day, and you can join the celebration on social media! Follow using the hashtags #CondorsOnTheRise, #WelcomeCondors and #NPLD on BLM’s Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram.

- a cheeseburger stabbed someone
- a cheeseburger stabbed another cheeseburger

I got dressed in my traditional Indian regalia, but there was a man, he was the producer of the whole show. He took that speech away from me and he warned me very sternly. “I’ll give you 60 seconds or less. And if you go over that 60 seconds, I’ll have you arrested. I’ll have you put in handcuffs.”
- Sacheen Littlefeather in Reel Injun (2009), dir. Neil Diamond.
They were MAD, CONFUSED AND PRESSED that Marlon Brando would betray White Supremacy in this way.
To this very day, they are TWISTED over this.
And when Littlefeather got up there and READ THEM FOR FILTH, they GAGGED. For eons.
So I imagine there are people like me out there who’ve never even heard of Marlon Brando and are extremely confused over why this is important.
Marlon Brando was the Don in The Godfather, and in 1973, he was nominated for and won an Academy Award for it. However, he was also a huge Natives rights activist, and boycotted the ceremony because he felt that Hollywood’s depictions of Native Americans in the media led to the Wounded Knee Incident (which I was always taught as “the second massacre at Wounded Knee” but apparently that’s not the real name). He sent Sacheen Littlefeather, an Apache Native rights activist, in his stead. Wikipedia’s article on her explains the rest:
Brando had written a 15-page speech for Littlefeather to give at the ceremony, but when the producer met her backstage he threatened to physically remove her or have her arrested if she spoke on stage for more than 60 seconds. Her on-stage comments were therefore improvised. She then went backstage and read the entire speech to the press. In his autobiography My Word is My Bond, Roger Moore (who presented the award) claims he took the Oscar home with him and kept it in his possession until it was collected by an armed guard sent by the Academy.
That is what this gifset is about.
You have GOT to read up on this. The Wounded Knee Incident, Marlon Brando and Sacheen Littlefeather, Anna Mae Aquash. ALL OF IT.
10 things our kids will never understand…
limewire lmao I forgot that was a thing woww. my memory
Wow I feel old now.
When you are 13 years old,
the heat will be turned up too high
and the stars will not be in your favor.
You will hide behind a bookcase
with your family and everything left behind.
You will pour an ocean into a diary.
When they find you, you will be nothing
but a spark above a burning bush,
still, tell them
Despite everything, I really believe people are good at heart.
When you are 14,
a voice will call you to greatness.
When the doubters call you crazy, do not listen.
They don’t know the sound
of their own God’s whisper. Use your armor,
use your sword, use your two good hands.
Do not let their doubting
drown out the sound of your own heartbeat.
You are the Maid of Untamed Patriotism.
Born to lead armies into victory and unite a nation
like a broken heart.
When you are 15, you will be punished
for learning too proudly. A man
will climb onto your school bus and insist
your sisters name you enemy.
When you do not hide,
he will point his gun at your temple
and fire three times. Three years later,
in an ocean of words, with no apologies,
you will stand before the leaders of the world
and tell them your country is burning.
When you are 16 years old,
you will invent science fiction.
The story of a man named Frankenstein
and his creation. Soon after you will learn
that little girls with big ideas are more terrifying
than monsters, but don’t worry.
You will be remembered long after
they have put down their torches.
When you are 17 years old,
you will strike out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig
one right after the other.
Men will be afraid of the lightening
in your fingertips. A few days later
you will be fired from the major leagues
because “Girls are too delicate to play baseball”
You will turn 18 with a baby on your back
leading Lewis and Clark
across North America.
You will turn 18
and become queen of the Nile.
You will turn 18
and bring justice to journalism.
You are now 18, standing on the precipice,
trembling before your own greatness.
This is your call to leap.
There will always being those
who say you are too young and delicate
to make anything happen for yourself.
They don’t see the part of you that smolders.
Don’t let their doubting drown out the sound
of your own heartbeat.
You are the first drop of a hurricane.
Your bravery builds beyond you. You are needed
by all the little girls still living in secret,
writing oceans made of monsters and
throwing like lightening.
You don’t need to grow up to find greatness.
You are stronger than the world has ever believed you to be.
The world laid out before you to set on fire.
All you have to do
I AM LAUGHING SO HARD AT MACHOPS MAILBOX IN POKEMON MYSTERY DUNGEON
