Psst — did you hear that VH1 is airing a marathon of all 57 episodes of Happy Endings, starting on New Year’s Eve at 8 p.m. ET?
Still bitter about this show being cancelled.
This will be AH-MAH-ZING!
Setting dvr now!

Immortal were the Elves, and their wisdom waxed from age to age, and no sickness nor pestilence brought death to them.
so his dark materials are my favourite books ever ever
and I’ve been telling my 12 year old cousin about them because she is a lot like I was when I was that age and reads a lot of the same stuff and I’ve bought/lent her a lot of sci fi/fantasy books I love and read back then
I was planning on…
If they truly aren’t pushy about their faith and accept others who aren’t religious, I don’t believe they would take offense. I’m familiar with these types of families and they tend to be the more rational kinds of religious folks. They are able to recognize fiction for fiction and not get wrapped up in perceived “oppression” of faith. I would go ahead and purchase the books.
But if you’re really nervous, I also think it would be perfectly safe to breach the subject with your aunt. Simply ask “if I were to buy the his dark materials books for her, would you feel they were inappropriate?”
Most kids on this website don’t even know what this is
That’s a coffee table
you are now the legal guardian of the last fictional character you called your baby. How screwed are you
sam and dean winchester
I don’t want to die
Sif and Tony Stark. At the same time. ~*~*JOY*~*~Well, it was either John Watson, in which case I’m fine, or it was John AND Sherlock, in which case I’m royally fucked. X)
It’s either Boyd Crowder or the kids on Shameless. Probably totally screwed either way…
christmas is so much worse as you get older it’s like “what do you want this year?” “a sense of purpose”
more like “what do you want this year?” “for someone to pay my bills”
"What do you want for Christmas?"
"No more $40,000 student loan debt. Or new tires."
I never liked Katniss in the books. She always came off as a whiny brat to me. The movies made her infinitely more sympathetic. The thing I have to remember is the story was written for teens, not those young adults in their 20s who have moved on from the hormonal hell of adolescence.
Once I was able to get past that mental block, I was able to really appreciate the full plot. I took it as cautionary tale. America has a growing problem of the have and have nots. That’s why the occupy movement happened. It’s why political candidates are attacked for their privilege and lack of understanding about “the 99%.” If current capitalism is able to continue to run its course unchecked, the middle class will certainly disappear and these fictional, futuristic, dystopian stories will not be so far off from reality.
The average active adult needs 2,000 calories per day in order to function in a safe and healthy manner. If I’m active to the point where I consistently run 1+ hour every day, then it is far more likely that my caloric needs are around 2,400-2,500.
Considering that, a meal of 1,200 calories would perfectly suit my needs. It would supply roughly half of my calorie requirements, which is a God-send since a fast food meal is relatively cheap. It’s a great value, especially if I don’t have much time to cook or have the resources to prepare my own meals!
The average burger is going to supply me with significant protein and carbs. That’s exactly what I’d need in order to build more muscle and have enough energy to make it through a workout. Even the sugar within the meal can be beneficial in supplying me with a boost of energy and can stop me from feeling hungry for a prolonged period of time. Not half bad.
Is this the most healthy meal known to man? Of course not. But it’s still a very reasonable deal and the calorie count is well within the average adult’s daily needs.
Don’t let calories scare you! You need them. If you were capable of burning off an entire meal within the hour, you’d probably be dead by now.
1200 empty calories in a meal
next to no nutrition. all the calories are sugar and fat. that’s it. you’ll have no energy and have glucose spikes in your blood because the lack of fiber because of the lack of complex carbs. this is diabetes in a meal.
so no, you should not be hungry for diabetes
Nutritionally, this BK meal contains roughly 28g of protein and 3g of dietary fiber. It potentially also includes 35% of our Vitamin C daily requirements, 2% Vitamin A, 12% calcium, and 27% iron. Of the 1,010 calories (that I could verify directly from the company’s nutritional information guide), only 410 are from fat. That isn’t a terribly significant amount of fat, in the long run, nor are the nutrients small enough to be viewed as negligible.
Eating this will not cause you to get diabetes. Eating this meal is perfectly fine if you do have diabetes, as long as you are able to adjust your insulin intake accordingly. So don’t use an illness as your debate point - Diabetic people are not a prop.
"So don’t use an illness as your debate point - Diabetic people are not a prop." I want that and variations of that on t shirts.
damn, man. Someone just got completely schooled by a nutritionist.
THIS A GOOD POST
Bless. This is exactly the kind of debunking and de-shaming that needs to happen around food.
The only problem would be the amount of TRANS fat. Read this for info about FAT shaming (I mean not the shaming of overweight people but the shaming of fats in diets). Also, moderation is not a fallacy. Sure you can eat this, but eating meals like this multiple times a day, everyday will eventually lead to weight gain and possibly some health complications.
