THIS MAN HAS ALS, AND HIS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH. THEN IT’LL MAKE YOU CRY

The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water. 

So watch the full video here and laugh out loud at the first half and then get ready to tear up in the second half.

I want support for ugly girls and lazy girls and girls that can’t ever get their eyeliner right. I want feminism that includes girls who are too big or too black to be on body positive blogs.

I want girls with acne scars and girls who don’t “pass” and girls with facial hair….

Since a whole slew of people who follow me are coming to the UK to study this autumn (EXCITING!), here is a visual guide to dealing with shrapnel/loose change. Coins are shown from left to right in order of value, showing relative size & colour so that you can work out how much money you have at a glance.
1p coin. Functionally useless but if you have enough in your pocket they add up to actual values. (100th of a pound).
2p coin. Roughly the same. Feel free to get rid of these by putting them in charity boxes etc, throwing them in fountains, losing them on the pavement - everyone else does. (2/100ths of a pound).
5p coin. There are very, very few things you can actually buy for 5p but a handful occasionally represents a useful amount of money. (20th of a pound). The rule with picking up coins is never bend for copper unless you’re actually starving, this one is kind of borderline.
10p coin. I’ve seen weird snack foods in the back of shops and some newspapers for 10p so this is actual money. (10th of a pound)
20p coin. Actual money! Note shape. (5th of a pound)
50p coin. Genuine actual money, you can buy things like chewing gum or chocolate with this (although not in London all our chocolate bars are about a millionty quin). (1/2 a pound)
£1 coin. Hang onto these, you can buy Actual Stuff like bread or milk or whatever with them.
£2 coin. Some machines don’t take these. 

One, two and five pee coins are pretty useless but you will get given many as change. Save them up in a jar or something, and when it’s almost too heavy to carry, take it to a CoinStar machine in a supermarket. (Branches of Asda and Sainsbury’s tend to have them, not sure about other supermarkets.) For a percentage fee, the machine will tally up and swallow your change and spit out a voucher to be used in the shop that day. My average voucher value from these shrapnel-dumping adventures is about £11, and it basically feels like free money, which equates to free Ben & Jerry’s. SCORE.

Having said that, if they did a gluten-free special of GGBO I’d be all over that shit.

Remember in 1993 when Jurassic Park was like…the end all, be all of special effects?

image

not gonna lie that still looks intimately real

I’m still somewhat convinced that someone sold their soul to create the special effects in Jurassic Park because that shit is over 20 years old and it still really, really holds up, better than the stuff in a lot of current movies, even.

Fucking witchcraft, man. 

they were real dinosaurs tbh

Maybe we’ve been wrong about Phil Tippett all this time.Maybe they were real dinosaurs and he trained them so fucking well they acted exactly as the script required them to.

Near my workplace there’s a shop selling all kinds of rock merch, and they have a Freddie Mercury standee in the window. I absolutely cannot justify buying it BUT IT WANT IT.
