This country is really absurd sometimes…

But we know we love it, though.

that’s why when I say “sorry” to ppl in the states they always dismiss my display of empathy saying “why are you saying sorry? it’s not your fault.” of course it’s not my fault! I want to help u feel bettah gawddd



"Sorry" means something different in Canada than it does in other places.
In Canada, if something bad happens and you say sorry, it means “I acknowledge that you have been inconvenienced or otherwise harmed, and I am expressing sympathy. I’d prefer it if the bad thing had not happened.”
We apologize for things constantly.
"Sorry I’m late, traffic was horrible!" Sorry about the traffic.
"Ugh, I think I caught the flu!" Sorry you have the flu. That must be unpleasant.
"My house was burglarized and everything of value stolen!" Oh wow, I’m sorry. That’s a terrible experience.
And so on. It’s rude not to apologize, because failing to apologize suggests you do not care.
There is even commercials up here in Canada about how we Canadians like to apologize for everything.
Sorry.



I must be a closet Canadian then because I’m from Georgia and I apologize for everything. My mom even set up a rule that limits how many times I’m allowed to say I’m sorry per day.

HOLY SHIT ME TOO

Wait… using ‘sorry’ as an expression of generalized sympathy is only a Canadian thing? How did I not realize this? O.O

Ten Fics Meme

khirsahle:

In a text post, list ten FICS that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” works, or even all the same pairing or fandom, just the fics that have touched you or that stuck with you somehow. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!  

 1. Fireflies, by Ardatli. Young Avengers, Billy/Teddy

Look, I could honestly list almost all of what Ardatli writes, but this is the one that hurt, and it stuck with me like a bright pain under my ribcage. I doubt I will ever be able to read it again, but that only makes the experience brighter. It’s beautiful.

2. Work in Progress, by Ardatli. Young Avengers, Billy/Teddy

Okay, just one more by Ardatli. This was written for me and seamlessly hits all my personal buttons. Of course it’s going to stick with me! And with everyone else pitching in…guys, I get so happy every time I re-read it.

3. Into the Black, by Dangerous Commie Subversive. Young Avengers, Multi.

It’s Young Avengers and Firefly. Seriously, how can that not stick with you? Commie does a brilliant job, and the adventure is just so incredible.

4. Variations on a Theme, with Tank and Gunfire by servantofclio. Mass Effect, F!Shep/Garrus.

I’ve got quite a few F!Shep/Garrus favs, but this is one I will read and re-read and never get sick of it. It’s so much fun, and beautifully told, and just…exhausting. I feel Shepard’s exhaustion when I’m reading this.

5. Liquid Courage by littleblackdog. Dragon Age, F!Hawke/Varric.

Ahhh, her Varric is the best Varric. One of the best compliments I ever received was when, on an anon kink meme, someone assumed I was her. But I am not and never could be, because her Varric? Is perfect.

6. Snare and Rook by littleblackdog. Dragon Age, M!Hawke/Fenris.

Another one (well, two in this case) that I re-read constantly. Her Hawke is just fantastic, and there is enough AU there for it to be a surprising deviation without being so AU that I can’t recognize the characters. Brilliantly done and so much fun. Also? Hot.

7. The Endless Days, by nightsmistress. Young Avengers, Tommy.

Uuf. This one was like a punch to the face. It’s so good, and yet, like Fireflies, I doubt I will ever read it again. It just made me feel way too much for me to be able to do that again. Brilliant Tommy. The best Tommy I’ve ever read.

8. Coffee Hooligans, by luchia. Les Miserables, Enjolras/Grantaire.

I have never, NEVER, re-read any story more than I have this one. It is bordering on creepy obsessive. This features my favorite Enjolras of all time.

9. Effeuiller la Marguerite, by arriviste. Les Miserables, Enjolras/Grantaire.

This is the story that made me obsessed with female Enjolras and female Grantaire. Beautifully written, hot, and just so much fun.

10. These Things Take Time, Good Intentions, Jaws That Bite Claws that Catch, Hacker AU, Undone… THERE ARE SO MANY.

Fireflies hurt to write. It hurt so good. I may never do one like that again, but it was a thing I had to tell. Thank you.

A 2500 year old mummy that had some amazing tattoos.

WHAT.

NO FUCKING WAY.

YO HOLD ON. 

IT GETS BETTER.

This mummy, found in the  Altai mountains of Siberia, is actually that of a young woman who died at about the age of twenty-five; she is thought to have been a member of the Pazyryk tribe.

She was buried with six horses and two similarly-tattooed men (the horned griffon that decorates her shoulder also appears on the man buried closest to her, covering most of his right side), possibly escorts. She was also wearing a horse-hair wig, silk, and elaborate boots, which is all a level of ceremony that would have likely only been accorded to a woman of high rank. You didn’t get inked like this unless you were very important, and had worked your way up to that importance. 

…Hence, of course, the references to her by researchers as ‘The Ukok Princess,’ although due to the lack of weapons in her grave they have concluded that the woman was in fact a healer or a storyteller.  

And now I’m all consumed with curiosity: Who was she? What amazing things did she accomplish? Why these symbols, and what did they mean? Who were the two men alongside her?

The most informative article about it can be found here, although I would completely eat up any other information you guys could find.
