Well, here I am

Sarah. Terrified of but hopeful for the future, content with the present. Harry Potter, Doctor Who, How to Train Your Dragon, and really just about anything else I want. I like nerdy things.

Dexter is 4 months old this week, and after putting all four paws in his food bowl and chewing on my shoes, he’s doing what puppies do best.

No, no see they’re Anglican, which is why the priest can go on dates and the nuns can give out condoms.

10 year old Yemeni girl smiling after she was granted a divorce from her husband- a 30 year old man

Here’s what I found after looking into it. 

Nujood Ali was nine when her parents arranged a marriage to Faez Ali Thamer, a man in his thirties. Regularly beaten by her in-laws and raped by her husband, Ali escaped on April 2, 2008, two months after the wedding.

On the advice of her father’s second wife, she went directly to court to seek a divorce. After waiting for half a day, she was noticed by a judgeMohammed al-għadha who gave her refuge. He had both her father and husband taken into custody.

Indeed, publicity surrounding Ali’s case is said to have inspired efforts to annul other child marriages, including that of an 8 year old Saudi girl who was allowed to divorce a middle-aged man in 2009.

But in 2013 Ali reported to the media that her father had forced her out of their home and is withholding her money granted by publishers. Her father has also arranged a marriage for her younger sister, Haifa.

Also this girl has her own book

today I went to game stop and as soon as I stepped in the guy who was working there said “the princess games are over there, babe” and I turned at him and looked him dead in the eyes and said “I didn’t know workers were supposed to recommend their favorite games when customers walked in.” and someone gasped and then I turned around and walked out

I know a lot of people don’t like America but you have to admit their national anthem is a lot more badarse than ours

Ours is all ‘hey we have this awesome land let’s welcome everyone and work together for a happy future!’ and theirs is all “LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THIS HUGE BATTLE WE HAD AND WE’RE STILL HERE MOTHERFUCKERS”

Eh. Ours pales in comparison to the French one. They literally have a line about using the blood of their enemies to water their fields.

Are we the only country who don’t mention war in the song that’s meant to be a symbol of our national identity?!

Ours doesn’t. Or at least the English one doesn’t, and I’m pretty sure the French one doesn’t either.

God Save the Queen has an entire verse that talks about nothing except empire-building, and several lines scattered throughout the rest of the song about bringing victory to the queen (in the context of her being Britain), people giving gifts to the queen (in the context of her being Britain), et cetera. Although to be fair it also contains one line about her power not being dependent on war any more (because foes have already ‘transformed to friend’ by this point in the song… um.)

I just looked at the lyrics of the French national anthem and the entire thing is about war. Every single verse. And there’s this little bit between verses that translates into English as:

To arms, citizens,

Form your battalions,

Let’s march, let’s march!

Let an impure blood

Water our furrows!(Repeat)

There’s also a neat little verse for children where they vow to take up the arms of their fallen elders and either avenge or follow them.

Oh wait you’re Canadian never mind I misunderstood.

Should’ve clarified, sorry.

I’m going to jump in here in the context of warlike national anthems to tell ya’ll to take a moment to appreciate the Mexican one.

War, war without truce to any who dare
to tarnish the country’s coat-of-arms!

War, war! Take the national pennants
and soak them in waves of blood.

War, war! In the mountain, in the valley,
the cannons thunder in horrid unison

Etc etc. (there is also a verse in there about peace, but there’s a lot more in there about “MEXICANS!!! TO THE CALL OF WARRRR!!!!” lolololol)


hello??? where am i???

Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria, Chad, Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Djibouti. Those are the countries. It will be drought-resistant species, mostly acacias. And this is a fucking brilliant idea you have no idea oh my Christ

This will create so many jobs and regenerate so many communities and aaaaaahhhhhhh

more info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Green_Wall

it’s already happening, and already having positive effects. this is wonderful, why have i not heard of this before? i’m so happy!

Oh yes, acacia trees.

They fix nitrogen and improve soil quality.

And, to make things fun, the species they’re using practices “reverse leaf phenology.” The trees go dormant in the rainy season and then grow their leaves again in the dry season. This means you can plant crops under the trees, in that nitrogen-rich soil, and the trees don’t compete for light because they don’t have any leaves on.

And then in the dry season, you harvest the leaves and feed them to your cows.

Crops grown under acacia trees have better yield than those grown without them. Considerably better.

So, this isn’t just about stopping the advancement of the Sahara - it’s also about improving food security for the entire sub-Saharan belt and possibly reclaiming some of the desert as productive land.

Of course, before the “green revolution,” the farmers knew to plant acacia trees - it’s a traditional practice that they were convinced to abandon in favor of “more reliable” artificial fertilizers (that caused soil degradation, soil erosion, etc).

This is why you listen to the people who, you know, have lived with and on land for centuries.
