help I’m having emotions about a cartoon antidepressant trying to be useful
DID YOU GUYS SERIOUSLY GIF AN ABILIFY COMMERCIAL
yes but look at it, it cares about her and just wants to help her be able to function. It’s like “I know you’re sad. here, I’ll help you.”
LIKE OKAY THOUGH can I explain why this is exceedingly brilliant?? Because when anti-depressants work right, that’s what they DO. They don’t make you happy or emotionless or unhealthy in any way, they make you FUNCTIONAL. They make it so that a depressed person who can barely get out of bed can start to support themselves again and more importantly, start to THINK for themselves again without the permeating presence of depression.
Depression is a cyclical disease, that tells you to think a certain way, and, because you’re depressed, you generally believe it, and then things get worse and worse. The ONLY thing anti-depressants do is to STOP that cycle in its tracks!! Which is something to be ecstatic about and celebrated, even if you don’t realize it at the time, because when you’re depressed, getting out of bed is climbing Mount Everest. Antidepressants help stop that cycle so that one day soon, getting out of bed can JUST be getting out of bed. They don’t even expedite the recovery process in most cases, they just make recovery POSSIBLE IN THE FIRST PLACE. So this little guy is portrayed with a fuckton more accuracy than I ever expected from a commercial.
It’s back and adorable
I was on antidepressants for some time, and they didn’t rev me up or make me abnormally energized…they just helped me be what was normal for me when I wasn’t depressed. I loved my A.D.’s, and this commercial absolutely resonated with me.
This is definitely what I’ve been experiencing lately now that I’m on a better combination of meds. It’s suddenly OMG I wasn’t even brushing my hair…
“But don’t let your illness stop you!!!1!1!!”
I’m not “letting” my illness stop me it just plain IS stopping me it’s an ILLNESS it makes me ILL that’s what it DOES.
Everyone needs to read this.
Seriously. People seriously do not fucking understand the concept of “SICK AND WILL NOT GET BETTER,” or “NO, ACTUALLY, THERE’S SHIT I CAN’T FUCKING DO.”
friendly reminder that there’s a cut scene in Thor that while the Destroyer is blowing shit up, Darcy runs into the pet store to save all the animals and give them to people leaving the town
as things are being set on fire around her, she talks to the dog, telling him I won’t let the big scary monster step on you, and names it Baker
my favorite thing about england is that the word pulp doesnt exist
"pulp" is a word in England! Usually in the context of "beaten to a bloody pulp".
It’s not a breakfast table association, really.
Unless, of course, you’re REALLY serious about how you have your breakfast…
A team of British filmmakers are aiming to produce a groundbreaking new science-fiction movie that not only stars two gay men in the lead roles, but hopes to pave the way for improved representation of LGBT characters in the film industry.
Credence follows a gay male couple preparing to sell their worldly possessions to fund their young daughter’s evacuation from Earth in the wake of violent storms predicted to decimate the planet. While they will likely save her life for the right price, they may need to sacrifice their own lives in the process… Read more and watch the trailer and a behind-the-scenes video.
I love this, really I do, I’m all for more representation for the LGBT community in films that aren’t drama-related. But wouldn’t it help if we didn’t refer to it as a “gay film” and just call it a ” film”? It already has a genre, why single it out?

He clearly has yet to go through the alligator wrestling expansion course…
if you’re ever feeling sad, just remember that according to the infinite multiverse theory, there is a universe out there in which you are a member of starfleet and have probably saved the world at least once

Kickstarter: Janet Collins Story
"In the 1930s, when 15-year-old ballet dancer Janet Collins first began to audition for dance companies, she was invited to join the prestigious Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. The only condition was that the black performer would have to wear whiteface.
“I said no,” Collins told The New York Times in a 1974 interview. “I sat on the steps and I cried and cried.”
That early disappointment only pushed her to greater heights as her talent took her from stage to stage until she became the first black soloist to perform at the Metropolitan Opera in 1951, four years before Marian Anderson would become the first black person to sing there. She struggled against racism her entire career and, in the process, cleared the way for countless other black dancers to come after her.
To ensure her story isn’t lost to history and that the legacy of Collins continues to inspire young black girls, actor Karyn Parsons has launched a Kickstarter to make an animated children’s film on the dancer. A lot of people may recognize Parsons as Hilary Banks from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. She’s also the founder of Sweet Blackberry, a nonprofit that brings “little-known stories of African-American achievement to children.” Previous short films by Sweet Blackberry on other black pioneers have aired on HBO and HBO Family. The upcoming film on Collins will be narrated by comedian Chris Rock, and children’s book illustrator R. Gregory Christie will help design the animations.
And Parsons drew from her Fresh Prince past to offer awesome prizes for backers of the project. The rewards range from lunch with Will Smith and the Fresh Prince cast to a shopping trip with Parson and Tatyana Ali, who played Ashley Banks on the show.”

Look, I made a gif of this most awesome wizard at the Leaky Cauldron!
DUDE IS READING ‘A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME’ BY STEPHEN HAWKING
I NEVER REALIZED
are you serious
I always assumed wizards just ignored science, because the fact that “magic” exists, can explain anything. But there are MuggleBorn wizards, ones who, until they were eleven, lived in the real world and learned science and things. Did they all just abandon that normal, muggle knowledge, like Harry did? It’s always been there, itching in the back of my mind.
FOUR FOR YOU SCIENCE WIZARD
YOU GO SCIENCE WIZARD
can we point out that he’s doing wandless magic too
like voldemort couldnt even do that shit
molly fuckin weasley couldnt fuckin do that
who are you
pretty sure this whole series has been about the wrong wizard guys
Plot Twist: He is able to do wandless magic because his comprehensive understanding of quantum physics means that he is the only wizard/witch to actually understand how magic works.
I want to see a movie about him.
Is there a limit to how many people in your system can be co-conscious at any one time that you’re aware of? Have you experienced any negative side effects to having a lot of alters active at the same time?
Hm…we can all have conversations some times but that’s generally only while we’re asleep, or getting ready too sleep and there are sort of “round tables” that we set up to discuss things.
Generally it’s only two or three who are interacting or can draw people out. Max seems to be able to switch people around and relay information.
The only other time…has been when some very passionate things were going on and there was…super euphoria that drew several out to experience.
