Nicholas Lord, a Navy sailor since 2008 currently on active duty, is under investigation after threatening to rape a young woman who is a Navy recruit.

The young woman posted a photo of herself on Facebook, captioning it to say she’s proud of how she’s working hard to get in shape for the Navy, and she’s excited to be leaving soon. The photo was shared on the page for her Delayed Entry Program for her fellow Navy recruits.

Nicholas Lord, who is not a current recruit and who has been serving in the Navy since 2008, then commented:

You’ll end up pregnant real soon you fucking wh***. If I could and I knew you, I’d hold you down and rape you.

The next day, Lord gloated about his threat on his Facebook page, updating his status to say he’d been “trolling feminist pages.” In case it needs to be said, the Facebook page for a Navy program is not a “feminist page.” It’s a Navy recruiting page. (x) (x)

I don’t know what the Navy’s punishment system is like, but I hope he gets the worst possible. I hope they investigate his past history in the military, too. If he’s bold enough to outright threaten female recruits, under his own name, on public, Navy-run social media, I seriously doubt he hasn’t harassed and threatened female sailors. He may even have raped them.

Especially given the military’s problem with letting men get away with harassment and rape, they need to severely punish him.

ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)

I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.

I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!

this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.

I CAN’T WAIT

So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway.  Ask box is open, slam away.

When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people.  By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.

Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it.  A BLACK orphan?!  Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.

Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.

Love it.

I WAS SCARED WHEN YOU SAID THAT YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE GONNA BE SLAMMED CUZ I WAS LIKE “OH BOY ANOTHER GROSS OPINION” BUT THAT WAS GREAT

can you imagine

if google just disappeared from the internet 

and then we couldn’t google what happened to it

because google was gone

It took me a good two minutes to work out that that is a picture of a person in a translucent waterslide and not someone trapped in a human test tube in a horror film

this is why we need google

Literary benches have arrived in London for the summer, and you have been going out to the streets and sharing your photographs with us. It’s been delightful to see the many iconic characters and stories scattered across the capital through your eyes – and do keep sharing, as we’re still far from having discovered them all.

This project by theNational Literacy Trustaims to raise funds for projects to raise literacy, and is displaying 50 book-shaped benches across the capital, each dedicated to an iconic and London-related character or book. After their summer in the sun, the benches will be auctioned in the autumn.

I came across this resource from realtor.org a while ago and thought it would be very useful to the sims community.  Useful  for people who like building lots!

I said “have a nice day!” to this old dude and apparently that’s not fucking good enough because he retrieved his wallet and from like a stack of 30 of these things pulled one out and gave it to me and said something like “I hope you reconsider your choices next time”

holy shit

This is the most self entitled shit i’ve seen all day

the phrase “my pleasure” is so fuckin weird and I don’t trust anyone who uses it unless they go all out and say it in a slow, moderately seductive voice and follow it up with a Lucille Bluth-esque wink

Wow

If you killed him on the spot it’d have been justifiable homicide
