what the f*** is cotton candy
why would you call it cotton?
It’s food. Not some material.
No, you are all wrong. It is called candy floss.
The French call it “ barbe à papa” - which means “Daddy’s beard”
okay so what i have learned from this post is that other countries are really f***ing weird
Directly translated from Norwegian it’s ‘sugar spin’, which makes sense when you think about it
some parts in India, its called,”Gudiya ke baal” which literally translates to a doll’s hair.
In Finland it is called ”hattara” which makes no sense whatsoever.
Bringing Stringed Instruments to Life with @jacobvdlippe
For more moments from Jacob’s workshop, follow @jacobvdlippe on Instagram.
“With a new instrument, the musician can actually shape the sound in the first years, making it an integral part in their way of communicating music,” explains Norwegian violin and cello maker Jacob von der Lippe (@jacobvdlippe). “Instead of doing repairs, I focused on making new right from the start.”
For Jacob, who took up cello at age eight, music has been a lifelong pursuit. “My parents were passionate about music, and encouraged my playing,” he says. At 17, he built his first cello as a school project. “From then on, I was hooked.”
“Being able to work with a craft merged with music was something that really appealed to me,” explains Jacob, who spent five years in Cremona, Italy—the violin’s birthplace—studying the trade. Fourteen years and nearly sixty violins later, Jacob’s creations have found their way into the hands of musicians around the globe.

Tom Haverford going “Nooooo!”: A Supercut
This is one of the most insulting things that I have ever seen, it makes me so mad I actually want to cry. I can’t believe magazines think that they can just dip a woman in brown paint, give her clothes from my culture to put on for a couple hours and then have audacity to call her an “African Queen”. Growing up I heard every joke about Africans and saw the negative stereotypes portrayed by the media that tried to make me feel so bad about where I come from. Yet Ive noticed when fashion magazine want to do spreads portraying poise and exoticness they often turn to Africa ( and many other foreign continents/nations) proving time and again that Africa is more than the negative images you see in the media) but this time, to try and take parts of my beautiful culture just to have white women play the role of an “African Queen” proves that beauty cannot be seen in our countries/cultures unless it is represented by White people.
"middle eastern (sic) and Moroccan fashion inspiration"
"We at no point attempted to portray an African women (sic) by painting her skin black"
"We wanted a tanned and golden skin tone"
- not fucking likely
- Morocco is in Africa, do you need to consult a map
- "it’s not blackface, it’s brownface!!!" is…that… better?
no cough syrup
you are not ‘grape flavoured’
have you ever tasted a grape
you taste like death and the tears of small children
not fucking grape
wow what a surprise another cis-gendered white upper-middle class american male telling someone what they can and cannot identify as. why don’t you go fuck yourself
charles xavier tells it like it is
Lets have a dystopian future movie where none of the actors are white
Not a single one
There’s just no white people and not a single character questions it
Watch how quickly people notice and get pissed off
but wouldn’t it be better to put one white extra in the far background of a huge crowd shot for a few frames, so we could point to them every time someone gets pissed off?

Let me tell you something about Oroku Saki. We were best friends during childhood. I know right, it’s sooo embarrassing. I don’t even… whatever. So then at age 20 I started going out with my first girlfriend, Tang Shen, who was totally gorgeous and then she married me. And Saki was like, weirdly jealous of me. Like if I would blow him off to hang out with Tang Shen, he’d be like “why didn’t you train with me?! ”And I’d be like, ”Uh, why are you so obsessed with me?” So then for my birthday party, which was an all Hamato Clan party, I was like, "Saki I can’t invite you because I think you’re a Foot Clan Member.” I mean, I couldn’t have a Foot Clan member at my party! There were going to be Hamatos there in their training suits! I mean right, he was a Foot! So then his dad called my dad and started yelling at himself, because we both had the same dad, and it was so retarded. And then he dropped out of the Hamato Clan because no one would talk to him and he came back in the fall for revenge and his hair was all cut off and he was totally weird and now I guess he wants to kill me.
Raphael has a huge ass?? Oh my God who would write that??

Why should Shredder get to stomp around like a giant while the rest of us try not to get smooshed under his big Foor Clan? What’s so great about Shredder, anyway? Splinter is just as cute as Shredder. Splinter is just as smart as Shredder. People totally like Splinter just as much as they like Shredder. And when did it become okay for one person to be the boss of everybody, huh?! Because that’s not what honor is about! We should totally just stab Shredder!
