The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.


We didnt do surgeries on the heart until a black man in america did it to save infants with heart problems-

I was alive before those were even thought of. Do you honestly think I haven’t thought of that? 

It’s more some company dumping waste into the water, thinking the recent typhoon would wash it away…

I forget you are older than the sun, okay? You move about like a teenager-

*Blanche* Seriously?

Thats disgusting…

Ugh, it’s their way of ‘saving money’, even if it pollutes the entire god damn river.

The dangers of greed, my friend… *Puff.*

So I’m guessing the typhoon(s) didn’t do their job.

In the Palestinian village of Bilin — near the West Bank city of Ramallah — residents have planted flowers in hundreds of spent Israeli tear gas grenades collected after clashes with Israeli security forces.

The garden is “meant to show that life can spring from death.”

 Argentina’s President Christina Kirshner Has Declared That Her Country Will Revoke The Argentinian Citizenship From Every Citizen With The Possession Of Both Argentinian And Israeli Passports. “This New Law Will Make It Impossible For Any Argentinian To Serve In The Israeli Army Which Is Assassinating Innocent People And Children” Stated Her Spokesman.

Are you people serious? First, it’s Krichner. Then that’s not how nationality fucking works in Argentina or anywhere else.
Also do you see a source? Argentina is the South american country with the larger Jewish population. Do you think they would make this decision overnight without warning? Brazil and Argentina are countries with traditional good relationship with Israel. And now they are heavely critizicing these action, that is true and I find that more interesting that a story put out of nowhere.
Tumblr please ppl cannot be ripped of their nationality without changing a country comlete legal system or passing a law and even tgere they would get to chose which one they get to keep.

"Have you had so many loses now U don’t expect a victory. Some people get so accustomed to losing they think defeat is normal. Having a bad day, being lied to, lied on & talked about can be a good thing, it’s a sign you’re almost there. There’s no resurrection without crucifixion. Rise up, renew your strength, press on. This is your day."
