The angst, anger and self-loathing of the teenage years.

What got me about this scene was that it mirrors Lucifer in a way that represents Lucifer’s rebellion as teenage rebellion. But it also projects that Luciferian rebellion onto her demon in an appropriate context. I liked it. It also makes me wonder what Luci’s music actually is, and I suspect it’s the music of rebellion.
You know I don’t do reblogs but this… *shudders*
Let’s nip it in the bud: Not. Shakespeare. It’s from Verdi’s Falstaff libretto.
one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’
no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty
Always reblog this because becoming more socially aware makes you dislike a lot of people
The weirdest difference is the sound of the trains. British train horns have a surging sound. It’s the sound of a hundred and eighty five tons of metal hurling itself towards the future. It’s a lie, but it’s a bright one. Here we come. We’re good at this. We leap into the future at a hundred and twenty five miles an hour.
American train horns are so different. I’d lay in bed at night and…

Today I learned that if something is labeled H310, then you do not touch that shit.
This is lovely.
This—this is far closer than the weird Raven-Babe a lot of folks seem to imgaine
Why feeding water birds bread is harmful:
- Duckling Malnutrition: In an area where ducks are regularly fed bread, ducklings will not receive adequate nutrition for proper growth and development. Furthermore, because ducks will naturally seek out an easy food source such as human handouts, ducklings will not learn to forage for natural foods as easily.
- Overcrowding: Where an easy food source is abundant, ducks and other waterfowl will lay more eggs and the pond or lake will become overcrowded. This makes it more difficult for the birds to seek out healthier food sources and increases the likelihood of territorial aggression.
- Pollution: When too much bread is offered to ducks, not all of it will be eaten. The soggy, uneaten bread is unsightly and rotting bread can create noxious odors as well as lead to greater algae growth that can clog natural waterways. This concentrates the pollution and can eventually eradicate fish and other life in the vicinity.
- Diseases: Feeding ducks bread can increase the spread of diseases in two ways. First, a carbohydrate-rich diet leads to greater defecation, and bird feces easily harbor bacteria responsible for numerous diseases, including avian botulism. Second, moldy bread can cause aspergillosis, a fatal lung infection that can decimate entire duck and waterfowl flocks.
- Pest Attraction: Rotting supplies of food leftover from sated ducks will attract other unwelcome pests such as rats, mice and insects. These pests can also harbor additional diseases that can be dangerous to humans.
- Loss of Natural Behaviour: When birds become accustomed to handouts, they lose their natural fear of humans and may become aggressive in order to get more food. Their loss of fear can also cause other dangers, such as a willingness to cross busy roads in order to reach picnickers and other likely sources of food.
Good Foods to Feed Ducks:
The best foods for ducks are those that provide the nutrients, minerals and vitamins the birds need for healthy growth and development. Many of these foods are similar to the natural seeds, grains and plants the birds will forage on their own. As omnivorous birds, ducks will eat a great deal of different foods, and the best foods to offer ducks include:
- Cracked corn
- Wheat, barley or similar grains
- Oats (uncooked; rolled or quick)
- Rice (cooked or uncooked)
- Birdseed (any type or mix)
- Grapes (cut in half)
- Frozen peas or corn (defrosted, no need to cook)
- Mealworms (fresh or dried)
- Chopped lettuce or other greens or salad mixes
- Vegetable trimmings or peels (chopped)
- Duck feed pellets or poultry starter pellets (x)
Every year I will reblog some kind of reminder of this! Please don’t feed waterfowl bread.
I used to volunteer at a country park and we would literally ban people if they fed the ducks and swans bread. People said it was because we wanted to make money via the seeds we sold in the gift shop (which were a special blend especially for waterfowl) but in reality it is because disposing of ducks that had died from being fed too much bread was starting to have a mental impact on the volunteers.
Oh wow I didn’t know this! Everyone should know this!
Bread is not a good food for birds, period.
I raise and breed waterfowl and am highly invested in their wellbeing, wild or domestic. Thank you for this very necessary post enlightening the masses.
I want a ray gun. I WANT ALL OF THE RAY GUNS.
Sorry, I just went mad with power at the thought of owning a ray gun.
Stop referring to them as “Men’s Rights Activists.”
This legitimizes them by framing their bigotry in the language of progress.
Start referring to them as organized misogynists, rape apologists and proponents of violence against women.
Do not concede a single inch of ideological ground to them.
Do not let them control the discourse.
Allow them no platform.
Allow them no reprieve.
Destroy them completely.
