I was searching Google Image and I HAVE FOUND THIS AND THEN I FOUND OUT THIS IS ACTUALLY PUN BECAUSE “MARCO POLO” AND “JEAN JEANS”.
One of the things that might seem more random in Homestuck is the idea that Karkat Vantas, an angry and foul-mouthed teenager, is the Christ analog in the story. Most Christ figures in literature have been either majestic warrior kings or squishy feel good new age types. Or sometimes both, Aslan in the Chronicles of Narnia is majestic and loving but always seems to be in control of the situation.
But in the Bible, Jesus actually was sarcastic much of the time. Jesus is neither a warrior king or a new age Teddy Bear in the bible, and he keeps his friends, enemies and nearby flora in line with large doses of sarcasm and cursing.
In Mark 3:17, Jesus calls two of his disciples “The Sons of Thunder”, which might have been a sarcastic comment on their desire to level a village with fire from heaven (in Luke 9:54)
In John 8:7, he suggests that the person who is without sin casts the first stone, a witty and sarcastic condemnation of people’s hypocrisy.
In Mark Chapter 11, Jesus gets angry at a fig tree and curses it to death.
And in Mark 15:34, Jesus is described as dying feeling betrayed, and cursing.
Without getting into the historical veracity of the bible, the way that Karkat and the Signless are portrayed, as angry, confused, and trying to keep their friends and enemies in line with sarcastic and profanity, is actually closer to the way Jesus is portrayed in the gospels than to the calm, beatific “King Jesus” that is so often handed around.

I’m just gonna reblog this again because it’s one of my favorite pictures ever.
That girl in the chair seems like such a badass I bet she was the leader of the crew.
I want to write about these girls.
When I was a teenager my mother found my grandmother’s (her mother) school scrapbook. It included things like photos, notes, and a two page spread of every demerit she ever received over the course of her formal education. Each of them set aside with little tags like she was so fucking proud of them. They were all for things like, “Unladylike behavior” or, “Skirt too short” or, “refuses to listen to authority”. I loved that spread so much.
I always have to reblog this.

Paintbrushes, move over. There’s a cooler way to paint in town. Enter water transfer printing, a hydro-coating process that essentially uses liquid images and ink to coat 3-D objects of any material. If only this sorcery could be used for our nails… new venture?
Actually, you can. It’s called water marbling. I’ve done it many times. It’s hella easy and there are a ton of videos on youtube to watch if you need help getting started.
You can do “hydro dipping” yourself! It’s an excellent option for cosplayers, car owners, or anyone who want to add any kind of pattern to an object.
You can buy pre-made patterns here.
OR buy printable (yes, printable) hydro transfer paper here.
Kim Kelley-Wagner has two daughters who were adopted from China. In everyday life, they have been subjected to horrid statements from people - to their faces, to their mother as they stood by her, etc. In this photo collection, shared on her blog, Kim and her daughters (Lily and Meika) put these ignorant cruelties front and center. [x]
"I have tried to explain to my daughters that people do not say these things to be mean, they say them out of ignorance, which is why I am sharing some of them. Words are powerful, they can become tools or weapons, choose to use them wisely."
i’m honestly deeply ashamed because of the harshness of our world
