The musings of a clever dreamer with a knack for words

    A writer for the new york times interviewed a series of people who had survived jumping off the golden gate bridge. Every person she interviewed admitted that about two thirds of the way down, they realized that every seemingly meaningless problem that caused them to jump was fixable.

    Every single one.

    Recently, I’ve been thinking about what Hogwarts house I’d be in.  I’ve always been very Ravenclaw.  I think I’m turning into a Slytherin now.  I’m super ambitious and like to work things out for me and other people who I like.  I enjoy putting people in cool places.  But also, I’m still very much a nerd and all about knowledge and figuring things out.  Identity crisis!

    I’m the same way! I was officially sorted into Slytherin but I’ve always felt like a Ravenclaw and now I’m lost.

    my favorite thing about the science side of tumblr is that they wait for an invitation before taking over a post

    i’m looking at you, supernatural fandom

    Fun fact: This is Orlando’s legit impression of Johnny; it wasn’t originally scripted.

    Was there even a script for this film. Every time I see a post about PotC they are like ‘this wasn’t scripted’

    I’ve been waiting for this gifset my whole life.

    So I’m assuming at least 95% of tumblr is hearing this whole scene perfectly in their head, right?

    the idea of people not hearing this in their head is inconceivable

    I do not think that word means what you think it means

    why aren’t these being reblogged more often?
    i rather see these than “keys in hand”


    Umm so since I’m stupid could someone kindly explain each step for me like step 3 am i head butting him in the face or the chest? 

    I think it depends on the height of the person, but I suppose the head is a more effective target. I hope this helps :)

    Step 1: Step back the moment he reaches for you.

    Step 2: Duck!

    Step 3: Head butt him in the chin. It’s very important that it is the chin and not the chest because it is much more uncomfortable and disorienting to have your teeth bang together especially if it cuts his tongue (which it will if it is in the way). More than likely height won’t matter. He will be leaning forward from the missed attempt at grabbing you.

    Step 4: Knee him in the balls.

    Step 5: When he doubles over, jab him on his back. I believe at the base of the neck just above the shoulder blades would be best. I’m not an expert, but this seems like the best place, imo.

    Step 6: Don’t lose contact. Bring your other hand over and slam your hands against the sides of his heads as hard as possible. Right on the ears is the best place; it is extremely disorienting if done correctly. Then take his head and bring it down on your knee as you bring your knee up. It’s very important that you avoid the nose because if you knee his nose it will definitely break and more than likely the bones will stab his brain killing him, so aim for his mouth instead.

    Step 7: Keep your knee up and bring your foot out to kick him over. Personally, I don’t like the image because it looks like she kicked him with her toes. You do not want to do that. Instead kick him with the ball or heel of your foot and put power behind it with a push.

    Step 8: He is on the ground. You could probably stop here and he would get the picture, but if you really want to…Your leg is still in the air from the kick. With all your force slam the edge of your your heel on his side. It will be more effective if you lower your body first by bending at the knee of the leg your weight is on. Done right, you can break a rib or two.

    reblogging again for that^

    Reblogging for the steps in the image and the explanation in the comments. I don’t so much like the explanation on the image proper, but I appreciate the thought behind it (here, have a self-defense thing, it could save you) and so I’m passing it on.

    My sister posted this on her FB, and my parents said it was offensive. SO FUCK THAT, I’M REBLOGGING THIS.
