“I wish I knew, but I have no idea. Andrew ran with it - that was always his show. I just helped him get it off the ground. But I loved the cast. I love Phoebe [Tonkin]. I love her. I want her on Vampire Diaries. I ought to write her in.”—Kevin Williamson [x] (via phoebetonkers)
“Over the past 25 years, Muslim majorities have elected five women as heads of state in the Muslim world (Tansu Ciller in Turkey, Benazir Bhutto in Pakistan, Hasina Wajed and Khaleda Zia in Bangladesh, and Megawati Sukarnoputri in Indonesia). Notwithstanding our verbiage of female empowerment and liberation, we have yet to elect a single woman as president in the US. The Quran is the only sacred text that devotes an entire chapter to the rights of women. In fact, women in Europe could not inherit property independent of their husbands up until the 18th century. Islam over 1,400 years ago gave women the rights of inheritance, work, and hold public office. But the misperception of a Muslim woman that is veiled and oppressed guides our thinking.”—Dr. Ali M. Nizamuddin is a ISPU Fellow and an associate professor of political science at the University of Illinois Springfield. (via monkeyknifefight)
“Elijah you are cheating!!!!” “Niklaus that is the most absurd accusation that I have ever heard-” and then Rebekah throws the game board across the room because BOYS. Finn should be glad he was daggered for 900 years.
wooooah, no one would challenge elijah’s honour! Perhaps Kol set it up, stole some monopoly money and planted it in Elijah’s corner.
FUCK YOU GUYS I’M GONNA GO KILL PEOPLE FOR REAL.
Oh god. Can you imagine if Kol asked them all if they wanted to play battleship, and then they went to some Navy port and ate all the people. Look, battleship! lol. Monopoly: who can eat the most real estate owners and get their property.
Hello! I'm new to tumblr, but I've been stalking your blog for the past few weeks (I'm one of the anons who kept asking you questions about the Originals and the Borgias). I was hoping you could explain to me how you can customize your blog? Like change the lay-out? I think I already did something like that, but I can't remember how I did it. ^^ I really love your blog, btw. :)
<3 agghhhh it was you! Fantastic <3
Ok, so if you want to change your theme, you copy the custom theme html from the maker’s page (like, for example click the ‘theme’ button on my blog and it will take you to the person who actually made this theme, and from there you can find the coding) and paste it into your ‘custom html’ box while you are ‘customizing’ your blog. Does that make sense? It’s fairly straight forward once you know what the steps are.
The customizing option should show up at the top right of your blog, if you are on your own blog page. Then once you open that, it’s kind of like an application. The custom html is top left on that bar, and you click that and paste the html code of whatever theme you like into it. If you need help finding theme makers, I’d recommend either just looking through the theme makers of blogs you like, or if you go on my resources tag I have a few posts that have theme links. Whichever works for you!
Once you’ve put in the new html and saved it (remember to save it!) then you can go and change the colours, all of which is just right there in the “customize” option. Different themes have different parts that you can colour, and different font styles, etc. If you want me to make you a sidebar or anything once you are done that I totally can <3 Welcome to tumblr!

Not really? I follow people who post about things that I’m interested in/don’t post about things that offend me. I follow around 150 people. Although there are a bunch of tumblrs that I don’t officially “follow” but I really like and I go hang out on from time to time.
One way that psychologists have found to test whether something is seen as an object is by turning it upside down. Pictures of people present a recognition problem when they’re turned upside down, but pictures of objects don’t have that problem. So Bernard and his colleagues used a test where they presented pictures of men and women in sexualized poses, wearing underwear. Each participant watched the pictures appear one by one on a computer screen. Some of the pictures were right side up and some were upside down. After each picture, there was a second of black screen, then the participant was shown two images. They were supposed to choose the one that matched the one they had just seen.
People recognized right-side-up men better than upside-down men, suggesting that they were seeing the sexualized men as people. But the women in underwear weren’t any harder to recognize when they were upside down—which is consistent with the idea that people see sexy women as objects. There was no difference between male and female participants.
