Outside England ‘s Bristol Zoo there is a parking lot for 150 cars and 8 buses. For 25 years, it’s parking fees were managed by a very pleasant attendant. The fees were £1.40 for cars and £7 for buses.
Then, one day, after 25 solid years of never missing a day of work, he just didn’t show up; so the Zoo Management called the City Council and asked it to send them another parking agent.
The Council did some research and replied that the parking lot was the Zoo’s own responsibility.
The Zoo advised the Council that the attendant was a City employee.
The City Council responded that the lot attendant had never been on the City payroll.
Meanwhile, sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of Spain or France or Italy … is a man who’d apparently had a ticket machine installed completely on his own and then had simply begun to show up every day, commencing to collect and keep the parking fees, estimated at about £560 per day — for 25 years.
Assuming 7 days a week, this amounts to just over 7 million pounds … and no one even knows his name.
I’d love to see a source for this, but if it’s true, this is amazing!

86 days, 30+ looks/characters, 13 main songs, 13 “quoted” songs, 1 month to edit, recorded and edited by herself. Make up and costumes done by herself.
This has got to be one of the MOST incredible things I have ever set my eyeballs on…if you don’t watch this you are a fool.
Aaaaaaaand yes, my mind is blown. That’s dedication to one project I say :)
What I love about being queer is the ability to grow and transform my sexuality. The recognition that our sexualities are complex and ever evolving, just as every other part of us, is a blissfully freeing thing. Regardless of anything else in the entire world, I am not bound by anyone else’s rules beside my own. Queer is freedom, possibility and space.

I want a story about a Black Fairy Queen who is protected by varying tribes of Elves of color, each tribe leader her lover and knight, sworn to protect her and her magic from evil forces.
I want this. I need this.
I could write this.
But then I’d ruin it because I’d want to add a love polygon where the tribes start to war because their leaders all want to marry her.
Nah, see what I had in mind was a story where the evil force , aptly named the Patriarch, tries to take her powers and destroy her kingdom, but she is too wise for that ass and kicks his butt every time. And the Patriarch would have the Harpy Queen at his side, who would be all jealous that the Patriarch wants the Fairy Queen’s powers….
You can CLEARLY see where I’m going with this storyline…
And the Harpy Queen would eventually realize what a piece of shit the Patriarch is and go to the Fairy Queen’s side, yes? Because arrrgh, nothing gets to me like female jealousy, especially when Patriarchy needs an ass whoopin.
a cuddle friendly movie theater!
Cuddles?! I would demand one of those seats to myself! No-one is sharing one of them with me.

This is utterly fabulous. :)
Headcanon; Korra’s got some serious water tribe tattoos she’s hiding underneath her shirt.
Maybe she should take it off for Asami to see.
Korra is a Servant of Naamah?
