The new dawn is dying,
Crushed by the carcass of
A victim of complacency, naivety,
Brutality incomprehensibly common,
How long can a blind eye save us?
The poisoned veins that bind our
Fragile illusion together
Are splintering due to the bulging
Heart of discontent.
Inevitably, the ashes will fade,
But before they do,
The cancerous scourge of the “protection”
Must be annihilated, else our saviours
Will become our murderers.
Southampton Can Survive, Despite Mass Exodus
Southampton fans have every right to feel let down by their club at this point. After achieving their highest ever Premier League finish (8th place) last season, Southampton have allowed no fewer t…
The twitter-verse was full of abuse directed at the Southampton owner, and numerous people condemning them to relegation, but this article outlines why both actions are premature.
Inspirational pokemon photos.
Most of these are really clever and awesome, I just have a couple of issues:
For the top one, Feebas evolves into Milotic when either holding a special item, or when its condition has been raised using pokéblocks to the point that it’s beauty has been maxed out. So it is less an advert for “you can change” and more so “you can change if you get work done to make you more beautiful” so if anything that one is an advocate for plastic surgery.
And for the Magikarp to Gyarados one, yes the point is good about the improvement, which is perhaps more extreme in this case than any other evolution in the pokémon universe, but it is poorly worded. Struggle is the move that a pokémon uses when all its moves run out of PP, and it causes tiny damage while suffering relatively large recoil damage until it faints. Realistically what a Magikarp does is Splash around until its trainer switches it out.
In other news, I played a little too much pokémon as a child..
#THEY DON’T WRITE EM LIKE THIS ANYMORE
[echoes of eleven blowing up cybermen to get information in the distance]
People who don’t love Nine are the dumbest.
People think that Nine is dark sullen and a killer. They’re wrong. Nine not dark. He’s light and happy and in love. He wear a leather jacket and is the closest Doctor the the Time War but he is not dark. He is a light person who is fighting his dark past. He knows what he’s done and is fighting to write his wrongs. He just wants everyone to live.
Eleven on the other hand is the exact opposite. People think he’s a puppy in a fez. They’re wrong. He is not happy and joyful. He’s careless. He is having adventures while ruining lives and killing people. He is the man who forgets. He has forgotten the pain he felt after what he did and now is so comfortable killing.
He doesn’t remember Nine. Nine, the Doctor with depression. Nine, the Doctor who fell in love with an nineteen year old shop girl who didn’t need a magic back story to be special. Nine, the Doctor who went and saved his friends without killing. Nine, the Doctor who chose to lose instead of causing loss.
Nine chooses to give up being a god. Eleven pretends he is a god. Nine would make a merciful god. Eleven acts like a vengeful god. Nine is a puppy in a leather jacket. Eleven is a a killer in a fez.
Thank you for everything written above.

Yet another Galactico, now where will he fit in?
Real Madrid fans had every reason to feel disappointed when Barcelona secured the signing of Luis Suarez for £75m, but now they can look forward to seeing the talents of Colombian playmaker James R…
Real Madrid have signed James Rodriguez, but what position will he play?
If you are anti-vaccines, you are wrong. In fact, your opinion is not only wrong, but severely dangerous to yourself, and your children. Vaccines are a fantastic medical discovery, and we should be grateful that, thanks to the work of Edward Jenner (who used cowpox as a vaccine to prevent smallpox), we are mostly protected against some diseases that would otherwise be very common. The myth that they can cause autism is exactly that: a myth. It was initiated by fabricated results, and proper studies have shown that they do not cause autism. Unless the person is allergic to the vaccine, any side effects are so minimal that there is not even a discussion to be had about risks vs benefits, because the benefit of immunization crushes the risks completely.
In most areas (religion, politics, sports etc) it is great that people have a wide range of opposing and contrasting opinions, but when it comes to vaccines, there are those who are right, and those who are wrong. Don’t allow people to be anti-vaccine, especially if there is a child who will miss out on immunization as a result of its parent’s idiocy. If you have friends who are anti-vaccine, don’t let them continue being so, convince them otherwise.
Discard it; it is worthless.
A token of greed, a machine-crafted weapon,
Utilised for destruction, construction, and all that
Exists in the void between;
Its value assigned is arbitrary, imaginary:
A virtual tool rules the Earth.
Preyed on by humans, the terrible parents,
A brain-child lies defeated,
Yet its life-support never expires,
Breathing despite being devoid of air,
Fictional atmospheres for an entity
Struggling for survival.
Defiler of dreams, assassin of aspiration,
Usually silent, but the clinking invades the mind,
Overwhelming as a mere dagger in the pocket,
Orchestrating wars from the safest position of all:
The state of non-existence;
Now spiralled beyond our control,
The coin will seldom be destroyed.
