when u have a bad day at school
Every year in June, a brave group of daredevils in the city of Alesund, Norway stack up hundreds of wood pallets to a height of over 130 feet, which they then light on fire in celebration of Midsummer and John the Baptist’s birthday.
Norway: where they build monuments and burn them because metal.
only in my homeland.
I thought it was going to be some inspirational art installation about teamwork and stuff BUT THEN IT WAS A PILLAR OF FIRE AND IT JUST GOT EPIC

GONDOR CALLS FOR AID
My brother works in a syrups/confectionary lab and sent me a picture of the latest accident last night. Pressurized berry concentrate never looked so murderous
Not the heroes we thought we needed but the heroes we really needed all along
American Dream and Spider-Girl hoodies, found at Party City
They’re…not…sexy???? WE CAN HAVE NICE THINGS??? AND THEY ARE HOODIES SO THEY ARE PROBABLY COMFORTABLE WTF?
That’s what I love so much about so many of the things for women that I’m seeing this Halloween season- they’re not selling “sexy” Spider-Woman costumes or “sassy” American Dream costumes. It looks like they’re taking women who like superheroes more seriously.
I have a great need for the American Dream one. Immediately. Or ten minutes ago.
bless them for letting baby girl keep her heritage
I peep them braids and that dress
I was just thinking this. She actually takes the children back to visit their family in their home country and they study about their own cultures. She isn’t one of those white people trying to assimilate her non-white children.
She doesn’t use her kids as props and accessories, and she loves and cherishes them all equally it looks like.
Not to mention how she lets John (Shiloh prefers to be called John) dress and act how they like
Also, I’m pretty sure her wedding dress has her kids’ drawings on it, which is just unbelievably adorable.
it does have her kids drawings on it, they also helped to write the vows and Maddox the eldest boy made the cake with his friends, which is probably why he looks so nervous in the picture of them cutting it.
Every single thing I hear about this wedding makes me so happy even though they’re complete strangers to me because it just seems so joyful.
I remember reading a while ago that when they hire nannies, they have a nanny from each child’s country of origin, who is fluent in their country’s native language, and can teach not just the individual child but the whole family about that country and culture. It’s really incredible how non-assimilative they’ve made their household.
