The findings from a 15-year, longitudinal study of more than 300 women in France, suggest that breasts would gain more tone, and would support themselves, if no bra was used. Why? Bras appear to limit the growth of supporting breast tissues, leaving the breast to wither and degrade more quickly. In fact, women who stopped wearing bras experienced a 7mm lift in their nipples each year that they did not wear a bra, and bra-less women developed firmer breasts, and stretch marks faded. And, in direct opposition to the myth that the bra eases back pain for women with larger breasts, not wearing a bra actually eased the pain, while wearing a bra did not.

HOW THE FUCK DO YOU DO THE LOOP-DE-LOOP
DO YOU HAVE TO RUN AND DO YOUR BEST OR WHAT
What? Do you think we’re sonic the hedgehog or something?
HOW THE HELL DO YOU NOT DIE ON THE LOOP
here’s a screen cap of a correspondence between a woman named telisha cobb and senator campfield, who is at the forefront of tennessee’s “don’t say gay” bill (actually called the classroom protection act), a bill which would require teachers, counselors, etc. to inform parents if their children are gay, or even if they ~appear~ to be gay. (here is some more information about it.) she posted it on her facebook (easier to read!) and is urging others to share it so the word can get out about what an unbelievable asshole this dude is (if it wasn’t already obvious enough).
in case you’re having trouble reading the screen cap, it says:
I am writing to you as a mother, active citizen and born & raised Tennessean. You are an embarrassment to our great state. Folks all over the country and here in Tennessee are looking at the bills that you are proposing in shock. They are the most ignorant and morally lacking legislation that could be proposed this year. It is clear that you are targeting homosexuals and low income families with hogwash legislation. You need to search your heart, your values and your Christianity to find a better way to represent us as a whole. We will do everything in our power to make sure you are not here in 2014. There are numerous grass root parties that are making their voices heard.
his super classy response to her email reads:
You seem to have some serious, deep anger issues. Have you ever thought about therapy? I hear they are doing some wonderful things with medication these days.
Yours in service,
Sen. Stacey Campfield
like come on. you’ve gotta be kidding me here.
so! if you wouldn’t mind reblogging this and spreading the word, that would be great! telisha wants others to spread this around as much as they possibly can. this is a totally inappropriate and unprofessional way of addressing criticism and more people need to know about this dude and what he’s trying to pull.

Cow Tunnels Under New York City
The legend of the West Side Cow Tunnels have always been an urban myth, repeated by someone who heard, but never from someone who knew. The story goes that sometime in the 1870s, the need to alleviate cattle traffic in the streets resulted in the creation of an underground ″Cow Tunnel″ underneath 12th Avenue and 34th street.
From here that the stories fluctuate wildly. Everything from where the tunnels are - people put the location of the tunnels on Joralemon Street- to what exactly the tunnels are made of - Oak, Steel, and field stones are the top candidates.
One of the only published accounts of the tunnel comes from an old article from the Tribeca Tribune circa June 1997, which follows the wild goose chase of a Con Edison employee as he follows the vague leads of his friends who knew a friend who saw the tunnels. In the end, the myth of the West Side Cow Tunnels seemed to be just another urban fancy.
That is, until 2004, when hints of the legendary Cow Tunnels resurfaced. A correspondence from the NYC landmarks preservation commission and New York State office of parks, recreation, and historic preservation mentioned underground ″Cattle Tunnels″ at the 34th street and and 38th street. According to the correspondence, if the tunnels are still in good shape they may qualify for inclusion in the National Register for Historic Places.
I guess it was really obvious in Black 1 but it’s SUPER OBVIOUS in Black 2 but also I’ve never heard anyone talk about this ever so lets talk about it?
N has white skin and a green ponytail, the reverse of Zoroark’s black skin and red ponytail. His name is N which is like a sideway Z. He isn’t a human that can talk to Pokemon, he’s a Pokemon that can talk to people. He apparently does not realize that he’s a Pokemon and does not change shape at will. (Illusion is a passive ability.)
In Black 1 you find a lost little boy in Castelia City who turns out to be a Zorua in the shape of a human. Also, in the anime, Zoroark becomes a perfect copy of Ash. Unlike Ditto, Zoroark is a perfect copy and can maintain that form as long as he doesn’t get hit. N has never actually been physically harmed in the story.
N has a Zoroark in his party, but Zorua and Zoroark generally come in pairs and have more of a parent/child relationship than most evolutionary lines. Also when they found N in the woods he was living with a Zorua and a Darmanitan. Was that a Zorua without a Zoroark, or was a Zoroark family taking care of a real human child that eventually died, and retained it’s form? N is based on the folklore concept of a child being “raised by wolves” and being a bridge between nature and society.
Anyway, after you beat the story mode in BW2, a Zoroark appears on Victory Road. It’ll do it’s cry as you approach it, hop, and clearly gesture for you to follow. Then it’ll enter a cave and go down a staircase. When you follow it, you enter a closed room, where there is no Zoroark, only N. And N starts talking to you as if you were already in the middle of a conversation. Later on in this event, you battle N, and there is no Zoroark in his party.
This isn’t even on Bulbapedia as like a popular theory or anything?
