Starting a conversation to get to know someone or breaking an awkward silence can be very stressful. To start a conversation when you have nothing to talk about, use these guidelines.
1. Introduce yourself if necessary. If you don’t know the person, breaking the ice is very simple: look…

I was busy ringing up a customer when someone spilled coffee on the floor. They pretended it didn’t happen and walked away. A moment later, an old woman (who was also carrying coffee) walked by and I warned her not to slip and fall. She misheard me and started yelling that she was not the one who spilled it. Then she said “See? My coffee is a different color!” and proceeded to pour her own coffee on the floor to prove it.

What on earth is wrong with people?

11 ways to solve rape better than nail polish

The more we depend on women to prevent rape, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Here’s a look at the well-documented ways we can actually stop rape. Maybe it’s time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing them before we send gallons of nail polish to colleges across the country.

SHOUT-OUT TO ALL MY FRIENDSHIPS ON TUMBLR WITH TEENAGERS

YOU ALL HAVE BETTER BLOGS THAN I DO

YOU ARE THE FUTURE AND I AM OKAY WITH THAT

‘omg I love you you are so kind and aaaaah how old are you’

‘16 how old are you?’

‘2-23…’

I think this when I’m chatting with people on here and then look at their blog description and its like ‘16/17’ and I’m like holy shit you are the same age as my baby sister what the hellllll

Yeah but for those of us who have older tumblr friends, thank.

speaking as a 17 year old, trust me when i say it means a lot when 20-somethings on tumblr treat us with respect and take us seriously because god knows no one else older than us does

Yes I second this

ehhh, ‘hi omg WE MUST BE FRIENDS UR SO FUNNY! HOW OLD ARE YOU??”

"14, and you"

"ehhhm..24.."

wow same

Also (as a 21 y/o) when I go to post stuff thats NSFW, like fics and art, those 13 y/o one direction followers of mine fleet across my mind and I’m like ‘Oh- oh but- but- Oh i’ll tag it and put a warning and i’m sure they’ll be good and not read it….’ *Crosses fingers & hopes for the best!*


I am An Old Person and whenever I post something that’s NSFW and I see that one of my teen followers has liked it I want to replace it with a graphic telling them to stay in school, don’t do drugs, eat their vegetables and do practice safe and consensual sex



then I remember that when I was their age I did all the above just fine without The Olds telling me that constantly

and I feel really honoured that some of these kids ask me for advice or want to vent or chat to another adult without being judged and I think that’s really cool so I remind them all the time that I’m here for them and care about them instead

When I like someone, I think they’re my age. Suddenly they say shit like “It’ll be my golden birthday two days before your birthday!” And I’m like… But… My birthday’s the 22nd…. ? And they’re like “OMG, I know. Almost 20 now! Ugh!” And it turns out I’m ancient. Also I’ve met people in their kids mid-50s who act more childish than several of my great ex-coworkers who were like 10 years younger than me.

YOU KNOW THAT PERIOD SMELL THAT YOU SMELL ALL THE TIME ON YOUR PERIOD AND YOURE CONSTANTLY PARANOID THAT SOMEONE ELSE SMELLS IT

Oh man! I can’t smell at all, and they always tell you that you’re bad at smelling yourself, but even I can smell that, and it very seriously freaks me out.

I’m so proud of my T.V. husband. From the moment I met him, I knew he was going to be, like, the next Brad Pitt. He’s so handsome, so kind, and such a talented actor. There’s just nowhere for him to go except straight to the top. I’m only shocked that it hasn’t happened already. I’m just so excited for the world to see him if they haven’t already. Because he’s brilliant and I love him and now he has rock-hard abs. Which is just a bonus.
It seems like the Internet has a big crush on Chris … do you feel like it is encroaching on your territory at all?
I have major jealousy [issues] but we start shooting Parks and Recreation next week so I am glad to have him all to myself because if anyone tries to get with him, I will destroy them

I keep changing my mind about who is the best on Parks and Rec. I can’t believe I missed out on it for so long.

Being good to each other is so important, guys.

that went in an unexpected direction

I don’t usually reblog stuff that’s not pony related, but I am in love with this post XD The art, writing and message are all top notch.

I’ve always wanted not to give a fuck. While crying helplessly into my pillow for no good reason, I would often fantasize that maybe someday I could be one of those stoic badasses whose emotions are mostly comprised of rock music and not being afraid of things.

She pointed out the sexism in video games, so men threatened her until she fled her home

On Monday, Anita Sarkeesian posted a segment titled “Women as Background Decoration.” It examined how gratuitous sexual abuse and violence permeates contemporary video games. By the next day, she had received so many violent threats that she had to flee her home. And these weren’t idle Internet threats — some contained accurate identifying information about Sarkeesian’s home and family, enough for law enforcement to get involved.

But she’s not wrong | Follow @micdotcom

I know I’m being silly, but seriously, at what point does a person think “she said something about women being treated poorly…. Hmmm… I bet death threats will help show people how wrong she is. I’ll look so clever!” I just…. I don’t…. Even if I were super pissed, I can’t fathom how that would further my cause.
