Magdalena the Allegedly Sentient

I seriously don’t understand how my life ever got so messed up.

The black and white picture in the middle shows a few 1945 Miss America contestants and the color pictures in the corners show four different 2014 Miss America contestants. The old picture is currently attracting attention on the internet, accompanied with remarks pointing out that the “thigh gap” was not considered a standard of beauty in the 1940’s. But the thing is, the girls in that older picture aren’t significantly larger than the girls from 2014. The difference is the way they’re standing. Even someone who is on the plump side will have space between their thighs if they stand with their feet far apart, and even someone who is unusually thin will have thighs that touch when she holds her legs together. If you’ll notice, a couple of the 1945 girls are actually crossing their knees a little, because it would be immodest to display the space between their legs. I don’t care what the current trends say; you can’t convince me that having a thigh gap looks better than having the modesty and femininity to stand like a lady.

I have literally heard every one of these in church

I think I have heard these literally everywhere, including church.

Um, yes. These aren’t exactly little-known secrets, especially within Christian communities. I mean, it’s nice that this guy wrote this to point out some of the things that pop culture misunderstands, but I think he’s unusual in that he was raised in a Christian environment and didn’t hear these “truths about marriage” in church.

You know when a fast angry song comes on that you know every word to and you’re in just the right mood that your eyes light up with the fire and angst of a thousand punk rockers and you just feel so alive

Dear future husband,

You should probably know that I have already named six of our future children and will continue to come up with more names, so if you want a chance to name any of the kids, you had better hurry up and marry me.

Just sayin’,

Your future wife

Some of my favorite Calvin and Hobbes strips. Bill Watterson had such an incredible cryptic and philosophical style, and it just makes me excited to read the comics over and over again.

kids these days are so spoiled

when i was your age we had an animated disney castle intro

and we had to walk uphill both ways to see it

Barefoot, in the snow

Running away from velociraptors

AND WE WERE THANKFUL.

Middle-aged People: The music was so much better when I was young.

Middle-aged People: These songs from my youth are so timeless. They speak to everyone.

Middle-aged People: What do you mean, you love these songs, too? You can’t possibly know them; you’re way too young!

teencry:

do you ever get so obsessed with a game that you start playing it in your head before you sleep

Oh goodness I miss those days.
