My dad just told me I am the worst human being to ever live and that I deserve to die. I know tomorrow he’s going to go to church and give a mass. He’s a deacon in the Catholic Church. He knows I have a history of self harm and suicidal thoughts and actions. But today he will tell me I should die and he hopes I die and tomorrow he will go to church and people will tell him what a good man he is and how godly he is and then he will get home and wonder why I don’t believe in god.
I suspect the next time Julius tries to sell Malcolm on the importance of cricket, he will make damn sure there are no tossable prawns in the vicinity.
Although, frankly, you’d think Malcolm would be all in favor of a sport made up entirely of glaring (along with funny running, shouting, and hurling things with great force at other people).
Of course, the biggest joke of the scene is revealed in the commentary when we find out that the only person who cares less than Malcolm about cricket is Alex MacQueen, which is why he is so conspicuously silent when Glenn is throwing around the technical terms that are completely natural to him from his other role as James-Smith-massive-real-life-cricket-fan.
I’m on Carrick-a-rede rope bridge in Northern Ireland and I’m walking back from the rock in the water to the mainland and the little girl in the family in front of me says “where is grandma? Is she back there” and the mom answers “yeah, she’ll be fine.”
Goodbye forever grandma.
The absence of women in history is man made.
just look at babe ruth’s face tho
i love it
pure hater shit
Jackie Mitchell…a bad ass lady I had never heard of.
From her Wikipedia page: “Seventeen-year-old Jackie Mitchell, brought in to pitch in the first inning after the starting pitcher had given up a double and a single, faced Babe Ruth. After taking a ball, Ruth swung and missed at the next two pitches. Mitchell’s fourth pitch to Ruth was a called third strike. Babe Ruth glared and verbally abused the umpire before being led away by his teammates to sit to wait for another batting turn. The crowd roared for Jackie. Babe Ruth was quoted in a Chattanooga newspaper as having said:
"I don’t know what’s going to happen if they begin to let women in baseball. Of course, they will never make good. Why? Because they are too delicate. It would kill them to play ball every day."
Next up was the Iron Horse Lou Gehrig, who swung through the first three pitches to strike out. Jackie Mitchell became famous for striking out two of the greatest baseball players in history.
A few days after Mitchell struck out Ruth and Gehrig, baseball commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis voided her contract and declared women unfit to play baseball as the game was “too strenuous.” Mitchell continued to play professionally,barnstorming with the House of David, a men’s team famous for their very long hair and long beards. While travelling with the House of David team, she would sometimes wear a fake beard for publicity.”
TL;DR: teenage girl strikes out two of the greatest baseball players ever, teenage girl gets her contract voided, teenage girl plays baseball wearing fake beard
These guys were so fucking injured by a teenage girl’s awesomeness that they literally threw a hissyfit and hung up a sign that said “NO GIRLS.”
They gave up.
They couldn’t handle it.
Teenage girls are amazing.
Here’s a friendly reminder of why the big leagues of sports aren’t co-ed.
It’s not to “make it fair” on women. It’s because men are scared of being beaten by women.
real talk tangled is better than frozen

family: listen… liberal hippie trash ….u dont know anything abotu the world….
Excuse me, Doctor Who starts in a few days.
Can I kindly remind people that up to 9 to 12 hour time zone differences can exist between countries and that not everyone is able to watch the show on the day it premiers. Can I also kindly remind people that tagging things is a great way to ensure that no one gets the premier of what is sure to be an awesome season spoiled.
Please, tag your doctor who stuff!
