GLASGOW, Scotland — The U.S.-based Westboro Baptist Church, home of anti-gay extremists famous for their “Gods Hate Fags” demonstrations, blamed a deadly helicopter crash in Glasgow on Saturday on the country’s recent advancement of a same-sex marriage bill.
“God hates Scotland, where they marry fag beasts,” said the first of a series of anti-gay tweets.
The tweets came after news that at least three people died and more than 30 others were hospitalized after a police helicopter crashed into a busy pub in Glasgow.
(I am so fucking angry about this)
'Thor: The Dark World' star Jaimie Alexander has surprised some young Marvel fans at a children's hospital by appearing in full costume… and we think that's pretty awesome. The 29-year-old actress (who appeared as Lady Sif in the recent 'Thor: The Dark World) surprised the kids of the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles - some of which won't be able to spend Christmas at home. And to spread a little yuletide cheer courtesy of her Viking heritage, Alexander appeared in her full Lady Sif costume… complete with sword and shield. Suited up in full Asgard regalia, this is an impressive move by one of the stand-out women of recent comic book movies… and we think it's a lovely sentiment.
Just wish I could afford the stuff in the catalogue.
This is why Regina George is the Queen Bee.
She knows right away that someone has tried to undermine her by making her look stupid, and instead she turns it into a fashion statement that everyone else copies.
She doesn’t even have to make a big deal out of it, she doesn’t say a word, because she doesn’t have to. Just walking out of the changing room with her head high means she’s turned a defeat into a victory.
And that’s pretty damn awesome.
I hate this phrase because it’s absolute bollocks.
(Just before I start to rant, these are UK sizes and basically US 10 is a UK 14)
I wish I understood women’s dress sizes. If I went into a shop like Miss Selfridge or Quiz I’d probably be a 16 even with the weight loss. If I go into the likes of Dorothy Perkins, Debenhams or M&S I’d be a 14 and yet today I went into H&M and tried on a coat it was a Small.
Don’t go with the scales, go with your dress size? But you can’t! You can be 3 different sizes in one shop nevermind a high street! If the EU wants to standardise things, they can start with clothes!
Advert for the Royal Bank of Scotland featuring a lesbian couple
It’s just nice to see all relationships portrayed as normal, which I think the advert does quite well
(Just sad that the straight girl refers to her “husband” and the gay girl refers to her “girlfriend.” Hopefully that will change soon in Scotland!)
juliassundial asked: Are you actually a Simon Schama fan? I was beginning to think I was the only one!
I LOVE HIM!
I blame him and his sexy intelligent self for my obsession with history and for dropping out of a newspaper graduate programme and going to study art.
We should start a Simon Schama cult!
Are you serious?
I mean I’ve been laughed at on here for liking him, I’ve seen people post things saying they wish he would just die just because he wasn’t so nice about a certain French Revolutionary.
I don’t care. I have A History of Britain and The Power of Art on DVD and I’m getting The Story of the Jews for Christmas.
He got me into history too, sitting unemployed on the sofa, miserable when suddenly there’s this guy being sarcastic and sassy about British history.
It’s very nice to meet you!
YES I AM SERIOUS!!!!!
Do you have his doc on Shakespeare? I watch that and the Power of Art every couple of months just to get inspired. His voice is pretty soothing and inspiring at the same time. And I like his sassiness too - it’s hot.
Folks that laugh at you for liking him are fools who don’t appreciate a beautiful mind. I haven’t seen ‘The Story of the Jews’ yet because I recently moved countries so was a bit busy. My sister is getting me the DVD tho cos everyone in my family knows how big a crush I have on him. Oh and his mind too hahaha.
It’s a pleasure to meet you too. And I’m serious about the cult!
You have the Shakespeare one on DVD?! I couldn’t find it on Amazon, so I have it recorded on my Sky+ box.
I’m glad to find another fan though. I like to watch him sometimes to get inspired when I’m trying to write. He does have a way with words.
You’ll love the Story of the Jews. You get to see him at home with his family enjoying the Passover etc.
P.S. I like your Schama gifs.
