if u ever need cheering up, remember that there are kittens in the world
and some of them are doing the tongue thing and some of them are curled up sleeping and some of them are rolling around playing with string and some of them are kneading people’s laps with their teeny tiny paddy paws
and most of them have soft fluffy triangle tails and all of them have bean toes
think of all the kittycats u have petted and how many more u may yet pet in the future and be happy
This is me sneezing and it’s one of the most adorable things you’ll watch all day.
man lets reblog some cute happy shit
let the record show that the first humans capable of imagination immediately invented furries
Furries of Tumblr: the next time someone brags about how their fandom’s been around since the 1960s or the 19th century or whatever just let them know your fandom is at least 40,000 years old
I’d bet a lot of people in the West would stereotype Muslims as “Arabs” from the “Middle East.” But the world’s largest Muslim populations are:
- Egypt (Arabic, but in Africa)
- Iran (In the Middle East, but not Arabic)
- Turkey (in the Middle East, but not Arabic)
- Algeria (Arabic, but in Africa)
- Morocco (Arabic, but in Africa)
- Iraq (Finally, a Middle Eastern Arab country!)
By far the largest Muslim populations in the world are in south and south east Asia (1.005 billion), followed by the Middle East and North Africa (322 million) and sub-Saharan Africa (243 million). While it is true that most Arabic people in the Middle East are Muslims, Middle Eastern Arabs only make up a small minority of the global Muslim population!
It’s also true that while Muslims in India make up ~10% of the global Muslim population and India has the third largest Muslim population in the world, they only make up ~14% of India’s billion-strong population - the largest religious minority in the world!
I think knowing this sort of thing is important and not just fun trivia, because when a lot of westerners think of Islam they think of oppressive, authoritarian, theocratic regimes propped up by oil money like Iran or Saudi Arabia. But Islam is a majority religion in an enormously diverse range of countries, from Albania to Indonesia, with many different political systems from absolute monarchy to democracy (there aren’t any Islamic communist states any more, but there used to be!) and with more liberal or more conservative interpretations of Islam. How we perceive what Islam is and what countries and political regimes we connect it to probably plays a role in how we (consciously or unconsciously) think of individual Muslims. So it’s important to dispel stereotypes and to get a clearer picture of the Islamic world before making comment on it!
man, premises? ? what the fuck are premises. premises are shit. Fuck anime with so-called ‘interesting premises ‘. why would you want to watch ‘people get sucked into an MMORPG and have to win’ or ‘the world almost got destroyed by giant abominations and people fight them’ or even ‘people make a shoujo manga together with satire’ when you could watch ’ abunch of kids play baseball only it’s not about the baseball it’s just a really good coming of age thing but like done in a good non-cliched way look it’s just really good they’re all friends it’s rEALLY GOOD OKAY’. man.

I got to “Dad” and had to scroll down and reblog for a break because I laughed so hard I nearly threw up twice.
