I’m about 90% sure the economy is never gonna “improve”
this is capitalism in it’s final form
this is it honey
except, you know, those companies that do a charitable thing for every thing they sell
that’s kinda new and interesting. benevolent capitalism
Pay attention, class: This is what it looks like when one is unwilling to consider new information.
You don’t have a point nor an audience
charity has done nothing to end poverty. it just makes people dependent on charity. a shitty bandaid solution to a gaping wound. it doesn’t give people the knowledge nor the resources to alleviate their current situation. this is the failure of “benevolent capitalism”.
Also “benevolent capitalism” does nothing to help the women and children in the third world who are the ones producing the majority of the first world’s products.
How to identify the boys of The 100Bellamy:
Everybody's favourite bad boy who isn't really a bad boy at all. Bellamy is the only non-Criminal on Earth, he is the guy who thinks of himself as a King. King Bellamy. He's not a killer, though he'd like people to think so, his Brave Princess Clarke is the only person who truly knows him. Bellamy can be found protecting Octavia, his sister. Bellamy makes wise choices, such as giving knifes to little crazy girls.
Finn, Finn, Finn. He's the reckless one who likes to go on walks in the jungle alone, as the Grounders wouldn't dare hurt Finn as his awesomeness repels them. Finn was arrested for enjoying an unauthorized space walk, which wasted a month supply of oxygen. Finn has hair a L'Oreal model would be envious of, but Finn's worth it. Finn is a great finder, no doubt he's a Hufflepuff, he can make pencils appear out of thin air for Princess Clarke and he often stumbles on hidden bunkers with a bed so he can sleep with Clarke.
The Puppy of the fandom. Jasper is easy to tell apart from the others, because of the giant spear impaling his chest. Jasper (Pre Spear) seems to be high on a sugar rush and has a special gift of making the whole fandom fall in love with him. Jasper (Post-Spear) is a nervous wreck, suffering from post traumatic stress disorder and won't even leave the camp incase the Grounders get him again. Jasper can often be seen getting speared, getting punched, having communication devices blow up in his face and almost crying in the corner, until Octavia comes to kiss it all away. Jasper was personally saved by Princess Clarke.
Monty is the only boy so far not to get any personal attention by Princess Clarke, this could be because 1, he hasn't had that much screen time or 2, Princess Clarke is too busy with her other boys. Monty can be seen doing technical things inside the shuttle or holding Jasper's hand as he and Jasper have a bromance. It is believed Monty got arrested for stealing "Plants"
Wells is the one who wants to be Princess Clarke's friend over a betrayal he didn't even do. Wells was looking to be a great character until he got killed because King Bellamy thought it was smart to give a girl a knife. Silly Bellamy. Evil girl. Poor Wells.
He is a Slinthead. We don't know why he was arrested but the possibilities are endless. He has a face like a slapped bottom and he can often be seen peeing on people... How lovely. Thankfully King Bellamy banished him! Murthy can be found hanging from trees because Princess Clarke thought he killed Wells. If not in a tree, Murthy can be found where all banished souls go, but we haven't found that out yet.
Atom is often mistakenly called Adam, so if you know somebody in The 100 called Adam, it's Atom. Atom was Octavia's love interest, but King Bellamy decided he wasn't good enough, as King Bellamy ships Octavia with Jasper, like the rest of us. One day the Gamemakers from Hunger Games let the Killer Fog free and it got poor Atom and burned him up. Atom begged King Bellamy to kill him, but King Bellamy is not a killer, so Brave Princess Clarke did the deed herself. Atom can be found in the ground or in Octavia's heart.
R.I.P. Gabriel Garcia Marquez, dies aged 87
Colombian author, Garcia Marquez’s magical realist novels and short stories exposed tens of millions of readers to Latin America’s passion, superstition, violence and inequality.
Widely considered the most popular Spanish-language writer since Miguel de Cervantes in the 17th century, Garcia Marquez achieved literary celebrity that spawned comparisons to Mark Twain and Charles Dickens.
His flamboyant and melancholy works outsold everything published in Spanish except the Bible. The epic 1967 novel “One Hundred Years of Solitude sold more than 50 million copies in more than 25 languages.

"bisexuals have straight passing privilege"

having people constantly assume im straight or gay based on who im dating or how I dress isn’t a privilege. it’s degrading and ignorant.

I just want everyone to be completely aware that in the brothers grimm version of “The Frog Prince”, the princess does not break the spell by kissing the frog. She in fact breaks the spell by disgustedly hurling the frog at a wall as hard as she can
so if someone you dislike demands your romantic or sexual attention against your will throw them at a goddamn wall
