Editorial | Khader Adnan: His dignity. Our shame.
This week, Khader Adnan entered his third month of a hunger strike
against his unlawful detention and mistreatment at the hands of the Israeli military.
The deafening silence by world leaders and media at his plight shames us all.

Palestinians protest in solidarity with Khader Adnan
Somewhere in the Middle East, a 33-year old man is today entering the 60th day of a hunger strike.
He is currently lying – as he has done for weeks – with one hand, and one leg,
shackled to his hospital bed. By the time you read this, he could be dead.
Of course, had he been an Iranian opposition journalist
Guide to being a Sane fan: HetaliaNew to the Hetalia fandom?Guide to being a Sane fan: Hetalia3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Getting tired of being called a 'Hetatard?'
Fans of Hetalia calling you the 'reason people hate Hetalia fans?'
All of these and more?
That's why I'm here to help.
This will be a mini guide on how to be a sane Hetalia fan.
1. Don't be obsessive over your OTP (one true pairing) or OTPs. Let's face it. They aren't canon. The only one's that could be called canon is AusHun, ChibitaliaXHoly Rome, and SuFin. The rest are just ones we the fans made and support.
I'm gonna pick on FrUK for a second, so bear with me FrUK shippers. You're the 'biggest' FrUK fan ever. So you're going through your messages and you see the pairing you hate the most - USUK. And you know what makes it worse? It's not even a picture. It's a fan fiction with horrible grammar and spelling (the horror!).
You see this abomination. You comment on it with this - 'FUUUU!!!111!!!FRUK IS CANON!!!!111!!!USUK SUKS!!U SUK!!!!FRUKKK IZ DA LUV!!!!11!!!'
No. Just no. That's no way to try to get someone to l

What About The Black Skins, Green Lantern?This is it, folks. This is THE most preachy run of comics I've EVER freakin' seen! Almost as bad as "Superman: Grounded"! ALMOST! And the worst part is...this is a Green Lantern comic. I pretty much grew UP on Green Lantern.What About The Black Skins, Green Lantern?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And yet, unfortunately, Green Lantern's given me some of the most pretentious, preachy, head-up-its-ass, morality-play, talking-down-to-you storylines I have ever, EVER seen. And right outta the starting gate is a story run done by the the comic creating dynamic duo of Dennis O'Neil and Neal Adams. The story comes from the 70's, during the "Silver Age" of comics, when Hal Jordan was the Green Lantern.
Who's Hal Jordan? He's a test pilot. He used to be a military pilot but he got fired due to certain circumstances. One day he was flying a plane for his girlfriend's company, Ferris Aircraft, and what should he find? A crashed alien ship. He goes down to try and help the inhabitant because he is "without fear", and because of this admirable quality, the dying alien wi

Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?

Arizona. EDIT: vetoed!EDIT: the bill has been vetoed! THANK LOGIC!Arizona. EDIT: vetoed!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
recently, Arizona has become quite dickish when it starts trying to pass laws.
long story short, the bill allows business owners & employees to refuse service to, mainly, LGBTQ if their religious beliefs dont agree with LGBTQ.
now, for those of you who arent up to date with American goverment/live outside the US, theres one big thing that America seems to forget: America has a SEPARATION OF CHURCH & STATE.
in otherwords; you can hang crosses, menorahs & any type of religious attire around your neck, house & anything you own. but religion cannot be taught in schools & other state owned places.
does this apply to business owners & places of retail & restaurants? in some cases, those buildings are state owned. Religion & Business are supposed to be SEPARATED when it comes to that, right?
so why are Arizona legislatures thinking that this is a good idea? protecting one's beliefs because someone else doesnt agree w

The island of Berk once had a troublesome problem with looting airborne raiders, but thanks to Hiccup and his dragon/best friend, Toothless, a peaceful coexistence reigns in the Viking land. It wasn’t an easy undertaking to get to this point, but audiences all over have sure enjoyed the journey of these action packed films.
Collection: Alternative UniverseCollection: Alternative Universe5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
The “alternative universe” has long been a sci–fi trope, usually simply a good–guy bad–guy heroes and villains reversal. Like the Star Trek episode (“Mirror, Mirror”) in which a transporter glitch lands Kirk on an evil pirate “parallel universe” Enterprise where Spock is a goateed murderer with mutiny on his agenda. But real scientists have complicated things considerably, with “string theory” positing at least eleven (and possibly an infinite number) of “alternative/parallel universes.”
Once upon a time, we pondered our relative insignificance as sin

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

I'm going to make a Youtube video in spite of all the bronies and their hate reviews of G3 My Little Pony, explaining why G3 isn't that bad. The points I'm going to touch on are as follows:
Note all the reasons people claim to hate it: It's not Friendship is MagicIt's girlyIt's childishCharacters that were carried over had different personalities and that's SO HORRIBLE for SOME REASONIt's "cool" to hate itIt's funny to hate itAll the famous bronies hate itBasically because they're all apparently the 6-year-old bullies in the kindergarten playground in real life who think girly stuff is gross.It was girly because it was a show made for young girls, duh. It had a huge fanbase, and sold millions of toys. It was popular when it existed for a reason. If it really was SO BAD, the My Little Pony Franchise would have ended right then.How immature it is to bash something for being girly and aimed at

Consistently finding itself at the top of the best-selling manga lists or top anime lists, Naruto is the story of a young ninja who dreams of becoming the leader and protector of his village. Created by Masashi Kishimoto in 1999 it premiered in Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine and just ended its initial run last year. A sequel is now in production.
R.I.PSo apparently a person on Facebook who went by the name of Human Derpy Hooves (MLP ; FiM), on March 4th 2012, unknown to me, had committed suicide due to being physically bullied at school. While I don't know this person personally, nor is she is any of my groups but the death of a Brony especially under such bad circumstances truly saddens me.

Let's all take a moment of silence for her. My prayers certainly go out to the family of this girl.
