I don’t say this lightly,

but oh fuck

I live in LA so I just thought I’d add a little more information about this for those of you who don’ know a lot about the drought. 

here’s the latest updated map I could find

All of California is now in a moderate drought and above. As of August, over half of California is turning into the dark red zone, which is an exceptional drought, which is, of course, very bad. In fact, it’s gotten so bad that we are fined to up to $500 if we are seen wasting water (sprinklers watering the pavement instead of plants, etc), and some cities are enforcing water rationing laws.

Our agriculture and economy is even being affected. Many farmers are losing their jobs because their plants are dying and not being watered enough. Some farmers are tearing down many of their crops so that the water that would have been used for those can be used for other crops. I should remind you that California provides over half of the country’s food, so this will not only affect the people who live in California, but everyone in the U.S. as well.

There’s also a chance that if the drought continues for the next year, then there’s a chance that we might have to migrate out of California.

So, for those of you living in California, please conserve your water! Every drop counts! Even doing little things like throwing the ice cube you dropped into a plant to water it instead of throwing it into the sink will help! For more ways to save water, check here

Here’s Lake Shastina, where my town Montague gets its water:

That was taken in April. The last delivery from it came this week; now we’re holding our breath to see if an emergency pipeline will be ready to take over in mid-September, or if we’ll be trucking in water from Yreka, the next town over. (Though my partner and I actually live way on the outskirts, with our own well. Lucky fuckin us.)

And here are the deer that spotted me watering a plant from a bucket:

And I know, I know you shouldn’t feed and water the wild things, but even though stags are notoriously shy, they heard and smelled that water and came right into the yard. I didn’t have the heart to drive ‘em off. Lil’ fuzzyhorns.

it’s pretty bad and I’m getting pissed every time I walk and see people running hoses in their yards and the water is running into the gutters because they leave the hose running to long.

A huge majority of Californians are clueless about the drought even those this is probably the worse we’ve had in over 100 YEARS. They asked many people to cut back on water usage, and it actually increased in some places like LA county.

For the love of god, PLEASE, PLEASE, reduce your water usage.

And you can find ways to reuse water, too.

My family has a bucket in our kitchen sink if we’re rinsing off dishes, and we use that water (so long as it doesn’t have too much soap in it) to water our plants. We have a bigger bucket that we place in the shower to catch water whhile we’re waiting for it to warm up. We put that in a big 50 gallon drum and use that water for our tomato plants and apple/pear trees or to water larger sections of the garden. When it’s not horribly hot we use the “if it’s yellow, let it mellow; if it’s brown, flush it down” rule so that we’re not flushing the toilets a million times a day and wasting water that way. We’ve let our front lawn die completely, too.

I’m so amused because when Steven Spielberg was making Jurassic Park he’s like ‘I want 10 ft’ velociraptors and everyone else is like ‘Steven no, they weren’t that big’ and he’s just like ‘well damn imma put them in the movie anyway’ and then during filming some random palaeontologists found actual 10 ft velociraptor skeletons and Spielberg was probably like ‘told ya so’

"Do it." (x)

I understand how Sam feels at this moment…

Theory time, with help from cutsiecastiel

So, the blade can’t actually hurt Dean, as he is a Knight of Hell, so, what if the reason Dean is pushing for Sam to cut him, is so that demon blood gets on the blade?

What if, Sam relapsed into drinking demon blood, which is why Dean called him a monster, and the reason Dean is attacking him, is so Sam will become violent in the hopes of turning Sam into a demon?

What if Dean wants to rule Hell with Sam?

YOU’RE GROUNDED.

NO

FUCK YOU

FUCK THIS THEORY MOST OF ALL

During World War II, Josephine Baker served with the French Red Cross and was an active member of the French resistance movement. Using her career as a cover Baker became an intelligence agent, carrying secret messages written in invisible ink on her sheet music. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre, and received a Medal of the Resistance in 1946. In 1961 she received the highest French honor, the Legion d’Honneur awarded by then President Charles de Gaulle.
Our loss, U.S.A….

If you don’t admire the shit out of J. Baker, who was also pretty openly bisexual and adopted NINETEEN children in addition to the badassery mentioned above, I want you to go sit in the corner and think about your life choices.

um she was also a huge civil rights activist and her refusal to perform for segregated audiences at major clubs that were fallin over themselves to book her helped de-segregate vegas performance venues
aaaand she had a pet cheetah

The best thing she ever did was leave the US
