George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.
"Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014).

HISTORY AU || Elizabeth Woodville’s last pregnancy
Elizabeth had not been worried about her latest confinement. She had already successfully given birth to two healthy sons in lesser conditions than she was in now. But she could feel something wrong as the labor continued to go on and no progress was made. She grew delirious with tiredness and pain and could only just hear muttering about the position of the child. Women were scurrying around her but all she wanted was Edward. Only he could possibly provide any comfort to her in her current state. She came into a moment of lucidity when she felt his arms around her. When he saw her eyes open he cradled her head and told her she was almost done. Elizabeth didn’t notice the crack in his voice or the water in his eyes; the pain made everything besides his physical presence inconsequential.
At long last, the child was finally born. It was a beautiful girl who looked as if she had inherited her mother’s fairness; even Elizabeth was taken aback by her prettiness. As she became aware of things other than the child in her arms, she realised that she felt different than before. The first two times had been easy and she had been practically walking hours after delivery. Now she was tired to the bone and could barely move her head from Edward’s shoulder. In a whisper that took more effort than it should have, Elizabeth asked her husband what was wrong. She trusted no one else to tell her the truth. He tucked her head into his shoulder and kissed it. Unable to bring himself to look her in the eye for fear of losing his resolve, he told her she was dying. She had lost too much blood in the long labor and there was nothing to be done. Tears streamed down her face as she looked at their girl, this lovely girl she would never get to know. She felt herself slowly fading and with the girl in arms and Edward holding them both, she peacefully slipped away.
Edward named the girl Elizabeth. As she grew, people said she was destined to be as beautiful as her mother had been. Elizabeth fulfilled that destiny and more. She had her mother’s fierce personality and her intelligence, which combined with her father’s charm left everyone she met at her disposal. Edward eventually remarried at the insistence of his advisors that it would really be better to have more than one heir, let alone a female one. He married a foreign princess as expected and more children came, including sons. Always though, Elizabeth remained the highest in his regard. Since the death of her mother, Edward could never again bring himself to do something out of pure passion with no regard for the consequences. Elizabeth represented that one moment in his life when he did it and found more happiness than a person should have. He did not expect to ever find that happiness again so he did not try.
As Edward watched the girl grow into a remarkable young woman who was so like her mother it almost hurt to look at her, he knew, regardless of his sons, that she would be his true heir. Through her his blood would continue because if she was her mother’s daughter, she would find a way to be queen. (x)
50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.
It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.
While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.
Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it.
It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society
I like how it’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Thor: The Dark World” and then Iron Man is just like, fuck the bullshit, we’re just callin’ this thing “Iron Man 3”.
Because a secondary title would imply it’s also about something other than Iron Man. And we all know how well that would work out.
"Iron Man 3: Tony Stark"

All I can think of is in the second one Tom said he had a rope tied to his leg. He told the crew to pull it during his speech so it would look like he was grabbed. He didn’t know when it was happening so he wouldn’t anticipate it and well there you go - standing delivering a speech on how grand he is and - WHOOP there he goes….
such an amazing actor. 1000% proud of his marvelous work.
Do you think every president goes through a awkward first few weeks in office when they’re not sure when’s the right time to ask if aliens are real or not?
