When Spider-Man dumped a bucket of ice cubes on his head in front of several journalists, and proclaimed that he «passed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on to Tony Stark», everyone expected the billionaire to just go through with it. Let’s face it – Tony had done weirder things on camera without ever having to be dared to. (Peeing in his suit hadn’t even been the worst one. Unfortunately not. By far.)
So when the Avengers watched it on the evening news (because Spidey had been nice enough to combine saving the city from a team of bank robbers with his dubious shower, while J. Jonah Jameson yelled his lungs out in the background), they were slightly disappointed when Tony declared «Nah, I’m not in the mood for ice down my panties right now».
«Ow, man, I already got my phone out,» Clint pouted.
its weird society sees people with tattoos and modifications as being unclean and poor when in reality its so expensive to get those things in the first place and the aftercare is strenuous and daily and in reality modified people are probably the most hygienic and well off people you’ll meet
okay today i learned that apparently the penis has a say in whether or not a child will be a boy or a girl
female sperm swims slower than male sperm, but the males can’t swim for as long as the females. this means that a long penis will be closer to the egg when releasing the sperm, and there will be a higher chance for the child to be a boy.
“I am shamelessly hopeful and I hold on to the idea that some day soon, all the efforts of all the people around the world who share a passion for the environment, sustainability, biodiversity and a healthy planet, will add up to a movement of such proportions that the world will have no choice but to change its ways. I wake up every morning convinced that my small contributions will add up to this change and I try to make each effort count.”—Meet the woman who elevated conservation photography to a whole new level | MNN - Mother Nature Network (via greenpeace)
I don’t think I know anyone with this background, but maybe we can signal boost. One major thing the Ferguson organizers have been asking for specifically for several days is for service donations from mental health professionals with a background in trauma counseling, people of color would be preferable for obvious reasons. If you know someone who might be willing to either to go to Ferguson or do tele-sessions, please direct them to this form.
Other person: I already explained to you that it’s hot in here!
Autistic person: The door is open!
Other person: Why do you have to repeat things all the time?!
Often when this happens, what’s really going on is that the autistic person is trying to communicate something, and they’re not being understood. The other person things that they are understanding and responding, and that the autistic person is just repeating the same thing over and over either for no reason or because they are being stubborn and inflexible and obnoxious and pushy.
When what’s really happening is that the autistic person is not being understood, and they are communicating using the words they have. There’s a NT social expectation that if people aren’t being understood, they should change their words and explain things differently. Sometimes autistic people aren’t capable of doing this without help.
So, if this is happening, assume it’s communication and try to figure out what’s being communicated. If you’re the one with more words, and you want the communication to happen in words, then you have to provide words that make communication possible. For example:
Other person: Do you want the door to be closed, or are you saying something else?
Autistic person: Something else
Other person: Do you want to show me something outside, or something else?
Autistic person: Something else
Other person: Are you worried about something that might happen, or something else?
Autistic person: Worried
Other person: Are you worried that something will come in, or that something will go out?
Autistic person: Baby
Other person: She’s in her crib, and the baby gate is up. Is that ok, or is there still a problem?
