[13 December, Saint Lucy, a singing saint of light with burning candles on her head, boys’ choirs in KKK costumes, saffron buns afterwards; traditions]
So the Dutch ambassador in Stockholm just thought it way okay to describe the stjärngossar who are traditionally present at the Swedish St. Lucy festivities as “boys’ choirs in KKK costumes”.
Many of my countrymen think they can get away with anything.
what if magic was real but it was treated the way music is now with different genres and shit like “oh youre still into conjuring? thats cool I guess. recently ive been getting into third-wave post-necromancy, it’s some pretty heavy stuff”
To anyone who doesn’t think that America’s justice system isn’t corrupt and racist, look no further than these two headlines from this week.

First Look At Deadpool: The Gauntlet #1

Shortly after announcing his plans to direct a movie about first U.S. president George Washington, acclaimed director Steve McQueen (12 Years A Slave, Shame) revealed that he intended to cast Idris Elba, known for his roles in Pacific Rim, Thor, and the BBC program Luther, in the starring role.
The film, Washington, will chronicle the titular president’s life over the course of his eight years as President of the United States.
"I’m very excited for this project," McQueen told us. "It goes without saying, this was a monumentally significant period in history, and George Washington was, and continues to be, a very significant figure. I hope I can do it justice."
Following the announcement, the Twittersphere immediately went abuzz in confusion, outrage, and controversy. One person tweeted, “how can you cast a black man? washington was white #smh”. Another said, “damn hollywood. how u gonna change someone’s race? what if we did that 2 other races? they’d riot #hypocrisy”.
However, McQueen responded to this controversy, saying, “I understand it looks like an unusual decision. But at the end of the day, it wasn’t about casting someone who was the right race. We went with the person who was the most talented, the most qualified, and that just happened to be Idris [Elba]. I think people will agree when they watch the movie, he truly captures who Washington was on the inside.”
Washington is scheduled to release December 11, 2015.

Okay, Steve, you win this round.
but the “#hypocrisy”
"But at the end of the day, it wasn’t about casting someone who was the right race. We went with the person who was the most talented, the most qualified, and that just happened to be Idris [Elba]."
How’s that feel to hear, white folks?
wait what’s wrong white people I thought it wasn’t about race I thought that you had to be objective and find the best actor for the role without worrying about making sure the race of the character matched the actor

Or wait or anything that requires you be on your feet for 6+ hours
Like you know how your feet feel all bruisey on the bottom after work and the pain still won’t be gone by the next morning and you have to deal w/ that pain AND the pain of the day to come
Well like my doctor told me that that bruisey feeling is cause standing on your feet all days causes fluids in your body to pool in your feet
So like at night he told me to elevate my legs with two pillows so the fluids can drain easier or w/e and ho damn.
It helps so much, Jesus Christ. No more limpy mornings.
Idk if this is even new information for y’all but just in case
I care about you
this is my favorite post i ever made bcuz no one’s every reblogged it and said “yeah this is rlly sound advice but look at her url”
Also don’t forget to rotate your feet from time to time. Stand on one foot, rotate your foot slowly. You can do it behind counters if you’re at work.
AND you can do small stretches like toe up to stretch your achilles tendon, shift your weight to stretch your inner thighs. If you get a potty break you can take a second after you pee to do a few other stretches to stay a little more limber because stiff muscles=pain.
