today in 6th period, it was pouring rain and I arrived late to class due to appreciating the rainfall. so when I finally walked in, I was dripping wet and the teacher gave me a dirty look and said that she was going to mark me tardy with a referral to the office and I point my finger at her and said “no” and THEN THUNDER CRACKLED AT THAT EXACT MOMENT AND THE POWER WENT OUT and just to freak out everyone, I whisper “666” and this girl screamed.
This man, James Verone, robbed a bank for one dollar. Why only one dollar? Because he knew that in prison he could get the medical care he could not afford with his part time salary as a convenience store clerk. He was approved for food stamps, but they did little to help his finances. Between his back problems, carpel tunnel, and arthritis, he simply couldn’t handle the pain any longer.
On June 9th, he sent a letter to his local paper, the Gaston Gazette, that stated: “When you receive this a bank robbery will have been committed by me. this robbery is being committed by me for one dollar. I am of sound mind but not so much sound body.”
He then took a cab to the RBC Bank, and handed the teller a note asking for one dollar and medical attention. He quietly took a seat in the lobby and waited for police to arrive.
Since Verone only stole one dollar, he was only charged with larceny. His bail, which he doesn’t plan to pay is set at $2,000, reduced from the normal $100,000. He’s scheduled to see a doctor this Friday, and hopes to get foot surgery, back surgery and to have a protrusion on his check treated.
To me, this is the perfect example of how disturbingly corrupt and unjust our health care system has become under HMO’s. For this man, or any person for that matter, feels that he needs to be imprisoned just to see a doctor, is ridiculous.
This is exactly what I hate about America. Why is it that you can buy an entire house with money you don’t have, but still can’t apply for health care if you don’t meet the requirements? That’s messed up.
I just want an episode of Doctor Who where the TARDIS translator thing stops working. So when the Doctor goes to speak to his companion he automatically talks in gallifreyan. So he then has to consciously change to English.
And for the whole episode he just speaks with a stupid accent.
I WANT THIS SO MUCH
It’s back oh god, why do you people keep reblogging this? I’m drowning in notifications.
imagine getting married
after many months of planning, you’re standing at the altar with your significant other in a beautiful room filled with all of your friends and your family
and every single person in that room over age 10 knows you’re getting laid tonight
this was beautiful
Everyone around tumblr are saying that this picture is making them uncomfortable and I think it’s great - a new kind of female body that actually FITS her character. Mikasa is very fit, she’s flexible and strong - to get to this state I suppose she works her muscles much. So she has to have muscles just alright and that they made her like that on the poster it’s awesome.
And even Christa, who was supposed to be girly beautiful and princess-like girl of the show has well-developed leg muscles. Considering she’s a soldier, too, it also fits.
It’s not uncomfortable - it’s beautiful and IT FUCKING FITS.
are you sure you’re not making shit up because everyone is lusting for her abs like relax nigga its anime
The danger of returning to childhood games.

Accurate as dicks.
