“Jack the Ripper didn’t kill sex workers: he killed women, some of whom sold sex sometimes. Jack killed flower sellers. Jack killed charwomen. He killed mothers, daughters, sisters, and wives. The case files that Ripper historians scrutinise for clues about his identity contain extraordinary details about these women’s ordinary and fascinating lives.

From these files, I learned about their friends, their lovers and their children; their love of drink, their quick tempers, and their favourite songs. I have seen pictures of their dead faces, and read coroners’ reports about the weight of their lungs, livers and hearts. These women are infinitely more interesting to me than the identity of their killer. Finding out about their poverty, their work and their experiences of injustice and inequality is far more important than their killer’s DNA. They are the real story of the Whitechapel murders. It is time for popular history to think more about them, and less about Jack.”

Its horrible that we live in a world where this is happening



Crowley being the last one alive at the end of season 10 and right before the end credits you just see him holding a contract and he looks at the camera and says “Looks like your 10 years are up, love. Be sure to leave your feelings behind for the next show.”
and then he disappears and as the screen fades to black all you hear is barking and howling getting louder until one final growl is heard and then silence.



i get so fucking emotional thinking about how much misha got bullied as a child.

i mean, i was bullied when i was younger. it led to a lot of problems for me, health-wise, and it would get to the point where i would start having panic attacks on the way to school thinking about what could happen that day. and i was terrified about the long-term repercussions it could have on my character. how bitter, angry, resentful i could get at times - it was horrifying.

misha was constantly attacked and ostracized. he wasn’t conventional by any means, he didn’t have a “normal” (as subjective as that term is) childhood, and he was punished for it. he was treated like shit, pushed around, ridiculed, thrown in dumpsters. he self-harmed, had little money, was homeless at times.

but fucking look at him now.

he’s running a goddamn charity. he has a beautiful, loving family. he’s broken guinness world records. he preaches kindness and compassion and global unity. he’s saved lives. nasa fucking named a mountain on mars after something he started. 

misha collins is a fucking inspiration for anyone who has ever felt like they didn’t fit in. he is a fucking inspiration for anyone who has ever had a tough school life, or a tough home life, or a tough life in general. the lengths we could go to, the things we could accomplish, given the right attitude and strength of character.

misha collins is a fucking miracle.

Listening to people scream how much they didn’t want Cas & Misha back - and Jensen’s surprise, and that he quickly tries to cover up with humor, breaks my heart.

Dear Haters,












so oxygen went on a date with potassium today…it went OK.

i thought oxygen was dating magnesium…OMg

actually oxygen first asked nitrogen out, but nitrogen was all like “NO”

I thought oxygen had that double bond with the hydrogen twins

looks like someone’s a HO


i’m done with all of you

So I finally found the science side



you know how every girl in the world has a secret code with her girlfriends for when they need a tampon well when I was younger the code was ‘japan is attacking, do you have supplies’ I feel like I shouldn’t have to explain the joke but just to be safe


Oh my fucking god

I don’t know why but that last line made me laugh really hard

this is one of my favourite comic strips of all time




People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.
