Who else misses Tumblr before it was this?
The weird/sad kids weren’t here from day 1? Man, that must have been beautiful.
it was different once…
This shit needs to go away. You are ruining tumblr for the rest of us who just wanna have fun
if u ask me to go to the park and just swing on swings with u there is 98% chance i will say yes and swing for 5 hours do not test me
IS NO ONE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THIS EVER
I WOULD LIKE SOME ANSWERS
well for starters his name was Paul
Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F
I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?
You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.
Average American Grading Scale:
A - 94-96
A- - 90-93
F- 59 and under
And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be
A - 100-93
B - 92-85
C - 84-78
D - 77-70
F - 69 and below
Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier?
No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?
UK Grading Scale
Below 40: F
next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid
i’m gonna remind you
that our “average” is your “A”
#is that true?
Yep I was shocked when I heard this in a different post but a Google search pulls up a ton of sites backing this up.
Shit son I woulda passed College Algebra with an A in the UK. And I spent the end of the semester in perpetual fear that I would fail and have to retake the class.
And basically as an American you’re expected to get 80 or higher. Technically 70s are considered ‘average’ but there is such a level of pressure to get a B or higher, that Cs have become equal to Ds. Basically anything under 60 you might as well gotten a 0, and anything between 60-80 is considered practically failing. So basically schools have to be designed to make sure majority of students are getting 80s or higher on specific topics, which means you’re spending all your time going over a few choice facts a billion times and there is very little room to teach anything else. Which explains why American schools are of such low quality. The insane demand on the students ends up wrecking their education. Not only do you not have time to teach them anything, but they end up hating learning. Even outside of school your life is dedicated to memorizing these few dumb facts because your homework ends up taking hours of your time. A teacher from one subject says they expect you to spend 2 hours every night on their homework. And if you’re studying 5 subjects and they all demand that 2 hours? Good fucking luck, because if you don’t have straight all 80s or higher you’re not getting into a good college and college degrees have somehow become the minimum requirement for getting jobs.
I spent most of my junior year of high school in a state of constant panic that I was going to get a C in Honors Physics much less fail the class. If I got a C on my report card, I was grounded until the next one. I lost count of the times I’d wake up at five in the morning to take the early bus to go in for zero hour before school actually started for the day
I can’t believe this post has gone this long without a single truthful statement
How about instead of complaining we get fucking greatful that American schools push us to get such high scores “compared” to any other places. Provided that’s true.
This weekend I have been literally scrambling to find a good, permanent home for my older cat, Cleo, who is about 10 years old. But apparently no one likes older cats? Even the no-kill animal shelters won’t take her because she is ‘too old’. It’s so freaking sad. She is so sweet and cuddly, not to…
Awwwh I would absolutely take her if I didn’t have so many :c There are groups on fb I could link to you that you could post in? I can ask around? Poor babies <3
I know what you mean (▰︶︹︺▰) I would love the help, but I’m not sure if some things would work out since I have no idea if we live in different states or something. I would love any help though, you’re amazing!
Im so dumb sometimes my mind went right to the kitty xD I live in Ohio D: but Im sure if you search animal and hit groups on FB you could find some for your area. I always search wayne county animals and thats how I find the groups Im in x.x if you feel like Privately telling me your area I can see if I know anyone around there willing to take a kitty? I dont know many people in different areas but you never know!
Thanks for the help, but I was so very lucky to find a home for my older kitty with some family friends :) thanks for offering though! That is so sweet of you
Awh no problem! I’m very happy :D woo!
This probably won’t get far but I want to try to see how many queer people there are versus straight people on tumblr
please reblog this post (refrain from liking if you reblog because that will mess up the amount of notes) if you are:
Straight: (an ally, don’t care, don’t support)
please reblog (refrain from both liking and reblogging) this post if you are part of the glbtqaip acronym (queer)
OH MY GOD one of our tigers did this (and it isn’t stuck on his head; one of the keepers went in to see if he needed help and he undid this and redid it on his own a few times) but oh my god hE’S PRETENDING TO BE A LION IM GONNA DIE
My heart ^_^Nawwwww :3
everyone needs to see thisss
this is how I learned to stop doing it, people should reblog this.
this is actually important
Hey look self harm advice that acknowledges that there’s more than two reasons that people do it
Reblogging this because my followers might be helped from this
This saved me.
I am forever going to reblog this post. Even if it isn’t really quality. I know from personal things that this NEEDS to be spread around Tumblr. If you don’t reblog this at least once I can guarantee I will judge you. Rebloging this could help someone out.
can we just take a moment to realize that not only did it paint an elephant it painted it to give the illusion of depth
I love elephants more than anything
#1: read this
#2: stop reblogging this
we need to keep reblogging so people see your comment and know
this is supported by snopes as well.

questions of sex and gender explored on tumblr dot com
This entire post is golden
1. Don’t put drugs in women’s drinks.
2. When you see a woman walking by herself, leave her alone.
3. If you pull over to help a woman whose car has broken down, remember not to rape her.
4. If you are in an elevator and a woman gets in, don’t rape her.
5. When you encounter a woman who is asleep, the safest course of action is to not rape her.
6. Never creep into a woman’s home through an unlocked door or window, or spring out at her from between parked cars, or rape her.
7. Remember, people go to the laundry room to do their laundry. Do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.
8. Use the Buddy System! If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from raping women, ask a trusted friend to accompany you at all times.
9. Carry a rape whistle. If you find that you are about to rape someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.
10. Don’t forget: Honesty is the best policy. When asking a woman out on a date, don’t pretend that you are interested in her as a person; tell her straight up that you expect to be raping her later. If you don’t communicate your intentions, the woman may take it as a sign that you do not plan to rape her.
