“When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’ It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?”—

““He stayed for the whole show, and was on the floor, which is to say he was just feet away, kind of appraising,” Eisenberg said of Mark Zuckerberg’s appearance on SNL. “And it was wonderful, I would look over to him and he’d smile.” The two met for the first time on the set at Studio 8H, and hung out together briefly at the afterparty. “As strange as it was, it was kind of the best possible way for that to happen,” Mr. Eisenberg said.”—Jesse Eisenberg (via canadawhore)

Thank you. I actually think I am ready to complete the essential element for a true ship. I’ll take a RPF that revivals the popularity of Robin’s Carry It In My Heart, because I believe wholeheartedly in Minajenberg. You all should too.
Of all of the gender and sexual minorities in our culture, transsexual women tend to be the most maligned, ridiculed, and despised because we are uniquely positioned at the intersection of three binary gender-based forms of prejudice:
How important is being able to cook a roast chicken in the grand scheme thing of life? I mean, really? Or hemming a skirt? Shit, man, I’m just gonna eat sandwiches and wear jeans and non-ironable shirts for the rest of my life. Fake crisis solved.
Exactly fucking this. When the husband was in the Marines they had finally made the uniforms so they didn’t have to be ironed. The older marines were pissed at this because when they were younger their uniforms had had to be ironed and the younger gen should have had it the same way. I’m betting their wives - who were most likely the ones who ironed their uniforms - all wished back then that the uniforms didn’t have to be ironed. /coolstorybro
If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world. After trying the verses, a Frenchman said he'd prefer six months of hard labour to reading six lines aloud. Try them yourself.

LIV DOES NOT DESERVE HIS GLORIOUSNESS WHEN HE CLEARLY WANTS TO MAKE FRANKY HAPPY FOREVER.
He said that line and I actually whimpered out loud. Oh lord Matty, you are wonderful.
We know Mark Zuckerberg didn’t cooperate but did you ever meet Eduardo Saverin, the character played by Andrew Garfield?
Aaron Sorkin:Once Eduardo signed that non-disclosure agreement after his settlement, he disappeared off the face of the earth. We don’t know exactly how much he received, but it’s in the hundreds of millions. And it will probably go over a billion because he also does now own a lot of Facebook stock. But on October 1st, the movie opened and that’s the day I met Eduardo. I got a phone call from our producer Scott Rudin that a representative for Eduardo had contacted him late at night. He wanted to see the movie. So we set up a private screening for him in New York right before Lady Gaga’s private screening. It’s true. I went to meet him when the movie was over and you could have performed surgery on him without anesthesia at that point in time. I gotta say, he was a deer in the headlights, which is an understatement. He did certainly expect to like the movie a lot, but you could tell in his face that he had just relived the thing. It’s an unreasonable experience that hardly anybody, including myself, knows what it’s like to have a chapter from your life suddenly written, directed, lit, shot, and performed by actors. That was the first and only time I met Eduardo.
