This scene was perfect
That time James Bond replied to homoerotic taunting not with some macho no homo bullshit, but by calmly implying he was bisexual anyway and somehow did not suddenly cease to be awesome but instead roughly doubled in awesome points.
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

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.
"i’m sad and idk how to feel better"
"i don’t know what to draw"
"i always mess up"
"BUT I SUCK"
this is what i just picked up from the grocery store. it cost $32. Thirty. two. dollars. for 1 pineapple, 2 bags of grapes, a small container of raspberries, 1 soft drink and 2/$1 nuts….
do you know how much junk food i could have for $32? do you have any clue how much McDonald’s you can get for $32?
stop shaming fat people poorer than you or people poorer than you in general for not eating healthier. stop lying about how cheap it is or how it’s comparable to fast food. just stop.

When I first read about this woman’s plan I thought it was a strong idea but I was worried that it was a little bit much for one person, no matter how dedicated, to keep it up for too long, especially since she has, you know, college to commit to. I never thought about how, if other people helped her carry her burden, I never thought about how much it would look like pallbearers with a coffin. Which is simply one of the strongest visual symbols one can use to disturb people in the western world.

Honestly??? UO stays fucking up
It isn’t available for purchase anymore, according to TIME, but I have a very hard time believing it was “merely coincidental” that they chose a university that had a worldwide known shooting in 1970 to put onto a sweatshirt that was purposefully made to look “vintage” with red splatters that resemble blood. Their excuse was that the red stains were discoloration from the original shade of the shirt… Bullshit.
I should add for those who don’t know, Kent State students were peacefully protesting the Cambodian Campaign in May 4, 1970 when the Ohio National Guard carelessly shot 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds into a crowd of protesters and on lookers; killing 4, wounding 9, and paralyzing 1.
Just a few weeks ago, Zara took down a shirt from their website that was identical to the Jewish prisoner uniforms they had to wear in concentration camps (including the golden “replica” of the Star of David).
A consumer psychology expert told TIME that controversy is good for business, and that’s exactly what’s happening right now. Companies like Urban Outfitters (who are known to appropriate cultures) and Zara are exploiting tragedies to create controversy for a profit. It’s a business model that seriously needs to end.
I just laughed so fucking hard
