We call ships ‘she.’ We call our war machines ‘women.’ We compare women to black widows and vipers. And you’re going to tell me it’s not ‘lady-like’ to scream, to take up space, to fight and demand respect and do whatever the hell I want. You’ve looked at nuclear bombs and been so in awe that you could only name them after women. Don’t try to down-play my power.
it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same
I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life
For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw
”- Why don’t you smile?
-Because I have an ugly smile.
-That’s impossible, when someone smiles, no matter what form have smile, or if your teeth are large, small, crooked… People just look beautiful when they smile, because we know that they are happy, and that’s what matters.”

5SOS Is NOT A Boy Band, And Here’s Exactly Why!
They’re a MAN band.
5 Seconds Of Summer range in age from 18 to 20. They play their own instruments, travel the world together, and two of them have chest hair. They’ve penned odes to ladies boldly standing in front of them wearing men’s underwear. They’re nominated for Artist To Watch at the 2014 VMAs. And aren’t those the empirically agreed-upon criteria that separate boys from men?
Yet despite their deep voices, Adam’s apples and ability to shred, they’re often frequently — and erroneously — pegged as a boy band, which was a controversial topic of conversation that came up during “Live From MTV: 5 Seconds Of Summer.”
Guitarist Michael Clifford’s reaction to the boy band label was mock horror: “The B word!,” he joked. “People are just gonna say whatever they wanna say. We’re not a boy band. Our fans know that. That’s all that matters.”
“We’re just a band. Two out of four of us have chest hair,” drummer Ashton Irwin swore.
But while 5SOS themselves may not care if you call them a boy band (for the record, they’d prefer “just a band”), the 5SOS fam in the “Live From MTV” audience gasped at the mere mention of the offensive term, shouting out “They’re a man band!”
Truth. Because would a boy do this?
Or have arms that looks like this?
Nope. See? Men.
My dad and I were in a hotel and he tried the coffee and smiled and said “ahh, it’s like making love in a canoe.” and I said, “it’s that good?” and he stopped smiling and looked me in the eye and said, “no, it’s fucking close to water" before pouring it down the drain really dramatically and walking away.
Oh my GOD.
Extreme dad jokes.
