I can never stop posting this. The narrow minded bible fanatics that just look at one small thing in the bible then feed the world with their hate over it. At the same time they ignore all the other silly laws made by man they claimed were made by god. These gif’s say it all.

Exactly!

Omg this was best post I’ve seen today, I will never scroll by this. EVER

Always reblog.

Poot-choo

That awkward moment when you fart and someone in the next cubicle over (that you didn’t realize was there!) says, “bless you,” so you spend the next ten minutes freaking out that it might smell. But it doesn’t, so you spend the next ten minutes wondering if that person’s sneezes sound like farts. And then spend the next hour trying to figure out how that would be possible. And now I want to do experiments with various nostril shapes vs. sneeze sounds. Yup. That’s my day.

The basics are that for every one female-speaking character in family-rated films (G, PG and PG-13), there are roughly three male characters; that crowd and group scenes in these films — live-action and animated — contain only 17 percent female characters; and that the ratio of male-female characters has been exactly the same since 1946. Throw in the hypersexualization of many of the female characters that are there, even in G-rated movies, and their lack of occupations and aspirations and you get the picture.

It wasn’t the lack of female lead characters that first struck me about family films. We all know that’s been the case for ages, and we love when movies like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Frozen hit it big. It was the dearth of female characters in the worlds of the stories — the fact that the fictitious villages and jungles and kingdoms and interplanetary civilizations were nearly bereft of female population — that hit me over the head. This being the case, we are in effect enculturating kids from the very beginning to see women and girls as not taking up half of the space. Couldn’t it be that the percentage of women in leadership positions in many areas of society — Congress, law partners, Fortune 500 board members, military officers, tenured professors and many more — stall out at around 17 percent because that’s the ratio we’ve come to see as the norm?

OK, now for the fun part: It’s easy, fast and fun to add female characters, in two simple steps. And I want to be clear I’m not talking about creating more movies with a female lead. If you do, God bless and thank you. Please consider me for that role.

Step 1: Go through the projects you’re already working on and change a bunch of the characters’ first names to women’s names. With one stroke you’ve created some colorful unstereotypical female characters that might turn out to be even more interesting now that they’ve had a gender switch. What if the plumber or pilot or construction foreman is a woman? What if the taxi driver or the scheming politician is a woman? What if both police officers that arrive on the scene are women — and it’s not a big deal?

Step 2: When describing a crowd scene, write in the script, “A crowd gathers, which is half female.” That may seem weird, but I promise you, somehow or other on the set that day the crowd will turn out to be 17 percent female otherwise. Maybe first ADs think women don’t gather, I don’t know.

And there you have it. You have just quickly and easily boosted the female presence in your project without changing a line of dialogue.

Yes, we can and will work to tell more women’s stories, listen to more women’s voices and write richer female characters and to fix the 5-to-1 ratio of men/women behind the camera. But consider this: In all of the sectors of society that still have a huge gender disparity, how long will it take to correct that? You can’t snap your fingers and suddenly half of Congress is women. But there’s one category where the underrepresentation of women can be fixed tomorrow: onscreen. In the time it takes to make a movie or create a television show, we can change what the future looks like.

There are woefully few women CEOs in the world, but there can be lots of them in films. We haven’t had a woman president yet, but we have on TV. (Full disclosure: One of them was me.) How can we fix the problem of corporate boards being so unequal without quotas? Well, they can be half women instantly, onscreen. How do we encourage a lot more girls to pursue science, technology and engineering careers? By casting droves of women in STEM jobs today in movies and on TV. Hey, it would take me many years to become a real nuclear physicist, but I can play one tomorrow.

Here’s what I always say: If they can see it, they can be it.

Koláče (sg. koláčare type of Czech sweet pastry baked from various doughs. 

In Bohemia are koláče labelled mostly as smaller circular pastry that has at its center a sweet filling like poppy seed, curd, nut, jelly, etc. The traditional Czech koláče are eaten in the villages during the festive feast like posvícení or during major events (such as weddings). These koláče are usually small, with diameter not exceeding 8 cm and only one kind of filling, topped with sweet crumble or sugar. They are baked from yeast dough.

In Moravia are mostly served large round koláče. In some areas they have regional names like in Valašsko, where they are called frgály with size approximately 25 cm in diameter. They are made ​​from yeast dough and filled mostly with apple jam, pears or plums.

In some places is baked a wedding pastry “svatební koláč” which is much larger and eaten by the newly-weds together at the same time.

In Texas, they also make savory kolaches! Meat, cheese, sauerkraut…so many kinds!

I miss the heck out of a decent bagel and any kind of bialy, but between kolaches and breakfast tacos, Texas will make me forget it, even a little bit.

To use that degree I earned, the savory kind are klobasnek.

Gods I miss kolaches.
