We live in a beautiful world.
We live in a beautiful world.
With school coming to a close, I feel as though I’m about to cross the barrier that will allow me to have free time again. I’m worried what I might do with it. Hopefully I’ll spend some of that time actually posting on tumblr, and not just re-posting things I find beautiful.
I’ve had enough.
I have a friend named Kaitlan: she’s beautiful and kind and is a great cosplayer, and she’s been getting these slipped under her apartment door for months.
I asked her if I could make this post because I’ve been seeing this happening and I just want something to be done. Whether it’s people supporting her or someone telling her how to get this to stop. How to get these people to get the punishment they deserve.
She has literally done anything that she knows to do. She even went to the police:
They told her to come back if it got more serious. What does that even MEAN? Apparently, someone has to actually kill themselves for this to be serious to the police.
Apparently, this behavior is acceptable at Indiana University of PA. Apparently, this behavior is acceptable to the Indiana County Police. Apparently, bullying like this is completely acceptable until someone ends up dead.
I’m just absolutely infuriated right now. This should not go unpunished. Absolutely fucking not.
I’m willing to bet that no one who had the “courage” to print these notes had enough real courage to talk to this woman and offer to help her with any problem that they perceived as a huge issue. Hang in there Kaitlin.
To make these light and fluffy little beauties, simply…
Sieve 8oz of self-raising flour into a bowl and, with your fingers or a scone hand mixer (http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2401/2038698008_257432eabf.jpg), rub in 2oz of cold margarine. Work the mix until it is fine crumbs. Add your desired flavour (one handful of chopped glacé cherries and another two of juicy raisins) along with a tablespoon of caster sugar and one egg. Begin to stir the mixture and then gradually add the butter milk (shake some milk with lemon juice) until the mixture has come together nicely. MAKE SURE IT IS NOT STICKY AND GOOEY because then the end result will not be parfait! Bring dough into a ball and flatten out, on a lightly floured surface, until about 5cm thick. Use your scone cutter to make as many as possible and then place on a lightly oiled baking tray. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle each scrumptious cone with a wee bit of demerara sugar to make them golden and crisp on top!
Bake in oven at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes. When baked to perfection, place on a wire rack to cool.
DO NOT BE TEMPTED TO EAT THEM IMMEDIATELY. I find it’s best, if you can, to wait a goof half hour so’s tongues remain unburned and the scones can work their magic even more than you had ever imagined!
Mmm, BON APPETIT fellow scone lovers!
(ps. makes about 12 giants!)
In case anyone else out there has an eye for fashions a few centuries late. I like how this post came with references to the pictures of clothes I didn’t know I couldn’t live without.
Repost, because there isn’t enough love on the evening news.
Naki’o is a mixed-breed dog with four prosthetic leg devices. Naki’o lost all four feet to frostbite when he was abandoned as a puppy in a foreclosed home.
He now lives in Colorado Springs, happily.

Dogs laugh at adversity. Give them some wheels or robot legs and they are back to chasing cars in no time.
Why doesn’t science do more of THIS?
Always repost beautiful buildings
