Wait do American people not call their friends mate?? Is this a thing???
Yup. I’m sure some do but mostly people just say friend. Which is boring but whatever.
Wait so you go up to your friends and be like “Hello friend.”
we use names
Funny story- I’m British and my friend actually lost an American penpal because he called her mate and she didn’t understand the idiom so she thought that he was calling her his ‘mate’ (in the sexual sense)
they’re freedom worms
it’s really heartening to know that even big tough marine dudes do the sleeping bag thing
i like how in the first GIF he just kind rolls and plops off his bed, and then other people join him in the thing
One of my favourite things about shows set in the Doctor Who universe is how they try to represent real-world diversity through their major and frequently reoccurring characters.
The Sarah Jane Adventures
racial and sexual DIVERSITY~
The 9th Doctor’s Run
more racial and sexual DIVERSITY~~
The 10th Doctor’s Run
The 11th Doctor’s Run
However, rumour is that they are introducing a black companion later in Capaldi’s series so yay on that?
whelp, I can now turn off the internet, I have seen everything
He also wore sweaters because of tattoos I believe he got in the Navy.
All this time i thought he was the image of suburbia. Turns out he’s more street than i am
oh my god.
He was in the marines and yes he wore sweaters to covor up his tattoos, full sleve tattoos if i may add. Mr.Rogers, you are a badass.
grown. ass. men.
you scared she gonna strike out yr precious baby boy? OH TOO LATE.
they were doing a special on her on one of the news channels at the gym. i didnt have the headphones so i couldnt hear the story, but one of the photos they showed was of a little girl in the crowd holding up a sign that said “I want to throw like a girl.” For every pathetic, insecure grown man who is threatened by this amazingly talented girl, hopefully there is another little girl who is inspired. But that she has to put up wit this kind of abuse even though she is OBJECTIVELY the best pitcher in the league right now and can throw a ball SEVENTY MILES PER HOUR is absolutely uncalled for. She is truly phenomenal, and those dads can all go eat shit and live
Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F
I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?
You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.
Average American Grading Scale:
A - 94-96
A- - 90-93
F- 59 and under
oh wow that is fucked up
Britain has quite a subjective marking system with the grade boundaries from subject to subject and from year to year but we aren’t that dissimilar in averages:
U- Below 50
