Former Democratic governor of Ohio Ted Strickland tried to live on minimum wage for a week and, in his own words, he “didn’t make it.”
In an op-ed for POLITICO, Strickland explains how he failed in his attempt to live for just seven days on $77, the amount the “Live the Wage” campaign estimates is left in a 40-hour minimum wage employee’s weekly pay of $290 after accounting for taxes and housing. Strickland, a Harvard fellow and well-off political operative, was clearly unprepared for just how quickly expenses added up. He had spent his $77 by Thursday after realizing his meager budget left him without the money necessary even to pay for public transportation.
THE GREAT AND INDEFATIGABLE SPIKE: OR, THE FIRST CHARACTER THAT TAUGHT ME THAT I AM, INDEED, SNARKSEXUAL. (OKAY, NO, THAT WAS STEERPIKE. WHOSE NAME IS ACTUALLY RATHER SIMILAR TO SPIKE’S. BUT SPIKE WAS THE FIRST CHARACTER IN POPULAR MEDIA TO HELP ME REALIZE MY SNARKSEXUALITY.)
AHHHH STEERPIKE, TOO??? YES YES YES! LET’S GET SOME GORMENGHAST GIFSETS UP IN THIS PIECE.
But yes, GAWD. Spike was such a great character. *SIGH*

#cover me in foil and call me a tinhat #that does not look like the face of a man #who was picking names at random #YOU’RE A LUCKY MOFO CHRIS PRATT #THAT HAD TO BE AN INTERESTING NIGHT
Chris Pratt, Ladies and Gentlemen.
more adventures in capping, i know everyone focuses on sebastian’s crumpled face in this scene but holy shit, the longing in these caps, especially that first one and the way steve’s image is interspersed in here, the memory he has of steve’s face is so visceral, it is just heartbreaking. that first cap is unbelievable, the sense of memory and just desire is. so distressing.
Mark Ruffalo teases Science Bros Action for “Avengers: Age of Ultron”
Mark Ruffalo is a gift and we are keeping him okay.
yeah, he’s still got my vote for spilling the dorito thing to RDJ
…oh God I really want Mark Ruffalo to meet Orlando Jones and compare notes.
She looks like Cleopatra or something brought into the future. Powerful stare like, “All the Ceasar’s be fallin’ for me.”
OMG that second gif makes me feel like she just declared war and we’re all gonna die and I’m totally ok with that
He looks so beautiful. This is the Steve that I picture. This guy. Fuck.
Hey so I’m reblogging this again because I want you to look really closely at the last gif and watch BUCKY TIGHTEN HIS GIANT HAND ON STEVE’S TINY SHOULDER.
I’m sorry. It will never get old for me.

Baby laughing while getting shots

I don’t care how old he will be I’m taking my future children to him
That person is in the right field! So many pediatricians are terrible with children; you can tell this person LOVES children and taking care of them.
What an awesome doctor!
I actually lol’d when the tissues started flying. He is awesome.
