“A biker’s power and intimidating image can even the playing field for a little kid who has been hurt. If the man who hurt this little girl calls or drives by, or even if she is just scared, another nightmare, the bikers will ride over and stand guard all night.
If she is afraid to go to school, they will take her and watch until she’s safely inside.
And if she has to testify against her abuser in court, they will go, too, walking with her to the witness stand and taking over the first row of seats.”
During one such testimony, a little boy sat on the stand, testifying against his abusive father, who sat less than 10 feet away.
“Why didn’t you say anything before now?” Asked the prosecutor.
“I was scared.” The little boy replied, honestly.
“Why aren’t you scared now, what changed?” The prosecutor watched the little boy closely as he pointed to the front row of seats in the court room.
“Because my friends are scarier than he is.”
shit like this makes me have faith in humanity again.
Okay so our Holi wasn’t as freaking epic as this, but next year we’ll have to try harder. this is so awesome.
That cat’s out of the bag a day early, it seems. Yahoo’s board has approved a $1.1 billion cash deal to purchase the blogging site Tumblr, according to The Wall Street Journal. We were expecting Yahoo to announce the acquisition during tomorrow’s NYC media event — CEO Marissa Mayer may instead use the last-minute gathering to detail the company’s plans for integrating the popular platform. It’s unclear how Yahoo intends to utilize its latest procurement, but with a 10-figure price tag now public, we can only imagine that Tumblr will be put to good use. We’ll be covering tomorrow afternoon’s event live, so stay tuned for more details from New York City.
THIS BETTER NOT FXCKING RUIN TUMBLR I SWEAR TO GOD acquisitions so rarely go well and the company/product/service that gets bought either gets changed so much people hate it or it just fails and goes under because of the changes in business scheme.
ughhhhh this could be fine or it could go really fxcking terribly.
it took me a while to get this. i was like what did they line the bottom of the pot with weed? is the pot just a diversion, did he already give it to him before? wth? OHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
Over forty years later:
((I will never not reblog this.))
when i see things like this i wish there was a way i could mass message all the people who reblogged and liked this and tell them THIS IS FAKE. google shit, folks.
oh man this song.
i hate going to the gym. i hate the time it takes out of my day to get there, i hate how crowded it is (though they are currently doubling our university’s rec center), and yeah im self-conscious. not cause i care how other guys think i measure up compared to them, but because i dont know how all the equipment works and i don’t do all the complicated exercises they do.
so, i’m taking my workouts outside the gym this summer in a few ways:

Guess what came in the mail today?!
The One World Futbol Project soccer (fut) ball (bol) I ordered!
I bought it cause it’s blue.
Okay no not really. I bought it cause OWFP (http://www.oneworldfutbol.com/) is a one-for-one organization who created these “indestructible” footballs for children in need, who live in areas where things like this are hard to get, hard to keep, or just aren’t had. While i may be needy, I am not a child in need. Like I said, they’re “one-for-one”, so for every football bought, they give one to a (real) child in need.
Here’s from the site:
Virtually-Indestructible. Unlike any inflatable ball on the market, the One World Futbol never needs a pump and never goes flat, even if punctured. The ball is made using state-of-the-art technology that requires no stitching and is designed to have the same rebound characteristics as a traditional soccer ball. It’s the same size and weight as a standard soccer ball, but it can also be used for netball, volleyball, and many other games.
All-terrain. The One World Futbol is ideal for any playing surface, not just grass or regulation soccer fields: indoors, on concrete, on blacktop, on grass, on a beach, on dirt, or even on a rocky field. The ball can withstand the harshest conditions without deflating.
Sustainability. The ultra-durability of the One World Futbol also helps meet a significant environmental challenge by eliminating the waste of discarded, punctured soccer balls. In Africa alone, 20 million deflated balls make their way into trash heaps every year.
Buy One, Give One. For every One World Futbol you buy through our “Buy One, Give One” program, we give a second ball to children and youth in need through organizations working in disadvantaged communities such as refugee camps, war zones, disaster area and inner cities.
No Child Labor. Many traditional soccer balls are still stitched together by hand by children and adults working under deplorable conditions in Pakistan, China, and India. The One World Futbol is manufactured using state-of-the-art technology that does not require stitching.
if you play soccer/football and want to give to an awesome organization, consider buying one-for-one or just buy one for them!
