When a newcomer suggests Sweden might have a few more warm weeks before winter sets in

jackviolet:

One of the things that is really notable about Moscow and yet not many people outside Russia know about, is how gorgeous the Moscow metro is.

These photos? That’s what the metro stations look like.

Yeah.

They’re called the “People’s palaces of Moscow” or else “Underground palaces,” and they were built during the Soviet era on the Communist idea that art and beauty should belong to the people rather than only being available in the houses of nobles.

These photos show just some of the metro’s attractions. There are many more mosaics, statues, etc, placed throughout.

And the metro is always this clean.

In addition to being beautiful, it is incredibly functional. It gets you pretty much everywhere in Moscow, and the trains run at intervals of every three minutes or less. At peak times, they run every 90 seconds. You never have to worry about missing a train, because the next one will come almost immediately.

Not always of course. In the late evening or early morning hours, you may have to wait as long as five whole minutes for a train. They’re also super easy to navigate.

We Russians are pretty proud of our metro system.

Story

Companion piece to:  Chapter One             

August 120 ASC

            It was the hottest year in recorded history for this region. The city that was once Yu Dao had been keeping register of the highs and lows for nearly sixty years and out of curiosity Sokka had indeed flipped through the almanac to confirm his suspicions.

            He was dead on. The heat wave that was plaguing the fledging Republic City was right at the top. He felt it too. Everyone did.

            But perhaps there was one, who was feeling it more than most.

            Sokka looked over at his old friend with pity in his eyes.

 Toph, a typically pale and petite figure was beet red and bulging today as they waited for the ferry to Air Temple Island. The breeze was minimal on the docks and he knew it was needed- desperately.

Why girls stress over periods

madameatomicbomb:

secretlycapricious:

larry-stylinanal:

  • The constant fear of bleeding through clothes
  • The constant cramps
  • Having to change pads/tampons every 2-4 hours
  • Having to deal with mood swings
  • Having to deal with boys going ‘Oh someones on their period’ 
  • When you stand up its like a waterfall from your vagina
  • Craving food to calm you down
  • The constant fear that you smell of blood even though you dont 
  • CRAMPS
  • Feeling over emotional
  • CRAMPS
  • CRAMPS
  • FUCKEN CRAMPS

YOU MEAN I DON’T ACTUALLY SMELL LIKE BLOOD?!

Let’s not forget those thick clots of gore. Those are always fun.

I’m kind of glad I don’t have to put up with it so much.
