He looks so genuinely upset
"I used to have a huge crush on this guy, who would sit there every day talking to me about…another girl: how beautiful she was, how nice and smart and perfect she was. And I sat there and listened, never meaning it any of the times I said `Oh, I’m so happy for you.’ I guess this is a good example of how I let my feelings out in songs, and sometimes no other way. And I’ve never been afraid of using names. I love this song because of its honesty and vulnerability. To this day, they are still together and he has no idea about this song.”
Some whales aren’t content to beach themselves. This blue whale is one of many in a trend that scientists aren’t yet able to explain. While whales may beach themselves due to disorientation or depression, some go an extra mile, or in this case 12 miles inland.
By wriggling at only a few feet per day, some whales will move well beyond the shores and into forests. Urged on by senses we can only guess at, this blue whale, nicknamed “Mork” by the caretakers who attempted to press the giant back to water, managed to move deeper than any other specimen on record, eventually passing two small villages on its hopeless trek from the coast of Austria to its eventual death in Innsbruck.
Human intervention played a small role in that people kept the whale’s skin wet and cool, prolonging its life for longer than would have been natural. This was done in the hope that two Chinook helicopters would be able to arrive in time to haul the beast back to the Indian Ocean, but the pleas for support fell upon deaf ears when Mitt Romney vetoed the petition and allocated the funds toward animal research on kittens to find a “cure” for homosexuality.
Meet Aamir, a child who escaped from his drunken father. Penniless and begging for food one day, a couple approached and gave him some cakes. They promised him a better life, and he thought they were social workers. But sadly that was FAR from the truth.
The food was drugged and Aamir became drowsy. They took him to a hospital where a doctor literally amputated his legs. So those scenes you may have seen in Slumdog Millionaire are very realistic.
Aamir was in much pain after the operation but he was just one of the MANY who is victim to these gangs in India and all over Asia really who kidnap children and deliberately cripple them and force them to beg. They do this because they think a cripple child will elicit more sympathy and more money.
Such a harsh world.
In case you missed it, here’s where you can view Slumdog Millionaire.
Y’know people say shit about social media along the lines of ‘OMG no one cares what anyone had for breakfast’ and like.
I do? I care. I’m pretty sure a lot of people care. I want to hear that the people I care about are having delicious breakfasts or saw something odd at work or flirted with a cute barista. Or just any little thoughts they have that they feel are worth sharing.
I’ve always kind of assumed that’s how you’re supposed to feel about your friends.
