THIS MAN HAS ALS, AND HIS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH. THEN IT’LL MAKE YOU CRY

The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water. 

So watch the full video here and laugh out loud at the first half and then get ready to tear up in the second half. 

There are a lot of diseases that don’t get the support they need because there aren’t a huge number of people who experience them, so it’s difficult to raise awareness, difficult to find investors, basically people don’t have the emotional connection they do with something that a huge number of people deal with and the pharmaceuticals to treat them aren’t as profitable. Like, a friend of mine was at an MS fundraiser and the grim joke used to try to lighten people’s spirits for feeling like they weren’t raising as much money as they wanted was “Let’s face it guys, we aren’t cancer”

The ice bucket challenge has made people donate something like ten times as much to ALS this year than previous years. I know people are concerned about wasting water, but you’ll do a lot more good on that front if you take a stand against bottled water and soft drinks, particularly from companies like Nestle, than getting mad at people trying to raise awareness for an illness that let’s be honest not a lot of people were very familiar with before this. Just be responsible, be aware, and try not to take your frustration out on the wrong people.

A child is supposed to be a parent’s greatest happiness.  Yes, children can be upsetting to put it in the mildest way possible, and yes, they find all sorts of trouble.  They are still capable of bringing so much hope into the world, especially when it is at its most terrible.  That is a child’s power, to change the world through their mere existence.

At least, that is the ideal.

Been trying to post more of what I write.  I have a lot of Death Seed junk and short stories in my notebook, but I still get nervous about sharing most of them.  Trying to fix that… even though there are always spelling errors lurking even after I’ve proof-read numerous times.  Thank you, Neil Gaiman for keeping me going despite my own frustration with myself.

Yes this could have to do with the fact that Freya the Norse Goddess of love, beauty and fertility drove a chariot pulled by cats.

No, not really.  I swore we would only keep two kitties, and I have my two kitties.

I still can’t help but giggle when I see these old ghost documentaries where they have people spend the night in a haunted room.  I can guarantee you that I’d fall asleep even if I was told creepy shit goes down there.  I’m just that kind of person, and my dad has said the same thing.  We’d be the worst test subjects ever, for both the believers and the skeptics.

Why Good Anime Is Hard To Make - if you appreciate the sentiment,SHARE THE VIDEO and spread the word!

remember this the next time someone tries to tell you that capitalism encourages innovation

I apply this practice to manga.  I buy what manga I think is worth my money, but I always read through a couple volume’s worth online first.  I’m currently looking to buy some Black Butler.  Problem is just that my bookstores only have the most recent volumes.  Bleh.

There’s a Lush store here in Ann Arbor, people tell me about your favorite products!
What do you recommend?

Hello, fellow Michigander!

I’d definitely recommend Charity Pot first and foremost.  It’s a lotion, so you get to try and see what you think of their formulas.  Not only that, though, everything but the tax goes to charity.  Not sure you want to splurge on the big, 7.9 oz tub?  No problem!  They also sell a 1.7 oz tub which always last me a couple months, and again, all the money earned excluding tax goes to a guaranteed good cause.

One of their solid shampoos is my second recommendation.  Talk to the sales people at your store to find out which ones will work best for your skin or hair.  They’re affordable for people new to Lush while also giving you a good example of how they try for as little to no packing as possible.  Godiva is my favorite because it’s a shampoo and conditioner blend (although I still use Retread conditioner as it’s my Holy Grail for my curly hair).

Now for the more fun stuff!

You can’t go wrong with LUSH’s choices in bath products.  They’re best known for their bath bombs (fizzy and frothy) as well as their solid bubble bars.  If you’re not sure what those are, it’s not a problem.  They do a lot of live demonstrations in the stores, especially when they know they have new customers coming to see what all the hype is about.

Twilight is easily the most recommendable bath bomb that LUSH has to offer, and it’s certainly one of my favorites too.  I also really love Rose Queen and Big Blue.  As for bubble bars, the Comforter and Brightside are the best bang for your buck, but my other favorites are Creamy Candy and Sunnyside.

Okay, so since I don’t want to overwhelm you, those are my recommendations.  And no, I don’t work for LUSH (since Bad Axe certainly doesn’t have a local LUSH) even though I really wish that I did.

EDIT: Forgot to mention this, but if you buy anything in a black tub (such as the Charity Pot or Retread that I mentioned earlier), save them!  No matter the size, if you bring five back, you get a free face mask.  Not bad, huh~?

Yup

okay, storytime. At a group sleepover, there’s this girl, the most innocent thing you’ve ever met, k? She nods off on the couch early on in the night. As everyone’s getting ready to play cards, one of my friends lean back and hears her mumbling in her sleep.

My friend motions for everyone to be quiet. The girl snuggles her blanket, smiles, and in the sweetest voice, says, “Go on, Brandon. You can jump. It’s only 30 stories.”

But holy fucking hell to the yes on this one.  New headcanon, sold on the spot.
